3 smoothies for weight loss

Nutritionist and Healthista blogger Rick Hay shows you how to make protein smoothies for weight loss as a meal replacement for breakfast or lunch

Forget the meat – brand new research has suggested that in order to boost life expectancy, people should aim to get more protein from vegetable sources instead. The research, which can be found in JAMA Internal Medicine, looked at 30 years’ of diet data for 130,000 people. It shows that during the period studied, increasing your intake of calories from plant-protein by 3% reduced the risk of death from any cause by 10%.

Rick Hay, also known as ‘The Superfoodist’ has always believed in eating a diet predominantly made out of plant based protein and has shared how to make these 3 delicious weight loss smoothies with us.

These shakes can be used as a meal replacement as they are high in protein and amino acids that help to keep you feeling fuller for longer.
