“Your NutriBullet is making you fat!” according to the newspaper I read today.
Juices. Smoothies. Shakes.
They claim to help you lose weight…
…but they actually pack on the pounds on your belly.
We don’t need to be told that a “1000 calorie Snickers Smoothie” isn’t the best thing for us. After all, even though 4 tablespoons of almond butter and 3 tablespoons of honey are “All-Natural”, that’s still too many calories and too much sugar.
Even worse, many so-called ‘healthy’ juices can STOP your fat burning (and they don’t even taste that good… I mean c’mon, green juice? It’s NOT that good!)
Here’s why juicing is making us fat…
…when you drink a juice, you’re getting a lot of sugar (and yes, a lot of vitamins), but no fiber or protein.
That sugar goes straight into your bloodstream, increasing your insulin, and storing fat on your hips, thighs, waist, and belly.
It’s also a lot easier to drink a LOT of calories before our brain says, “Stop. I’m full.”
You can blend up 3 bananas, 2 apples, 2 cups of yogurt, and 3 tablespoons of honey and suck it all down in seconds.
But imagine trying to chew all that… your jaw would get a TT workout, for sure!
So what’s the solution?
Simple CB-approved blender drinks!
8 ounces of water
4 ice cubes
1 orange or banana
1 handful of spinach
¼ cup blueberries
1 serving BioTrust Vanilla Cream protein powder
That’s a 300-calorie smoothie that will keep you full for 3-4 hours.
You can also add a tablespoon of almond butter or virgin coconut oil, or ¼ of an avocado, to take you to 500 calories and 5 hours of fullness.
You can also substitute plain Greek yogurt for the protein powder (although I would stick with the BioTrust protein).
Other superfoods and spices you can add include:
- Cacao nibs or powder
- Chia seeds
My good friend Joel Marion just wrote a brand new free report that you can download for free for the rest of the day, showing you the 7 fruits NEVER to eat.
You see, these rogue fruits wreak havoc on your body’s fat-burning hormones and quickly bring weight loss to a dead stop — even though you’re trying to eat healthy!
Don’t fall victim to these waist-expanding fruits any longer:

“The failure to act is often the product of inner, emotional resistance than external resistance. To move forward you must give up your excuses. Do not capitulate to external resistance, AND resolve your own internal resistance. A high performer has no margin for such weakness.” – Dan Kennedy … List your Internal Resistance to success.
