After months and months of working out, extreme dieting, and trying our hardest to stick to a healthy-ish routine, my boyfriend and I were on our way to Punta Cana this past May with rockin’ bods and tons of confidence. We would be around his fam for approximately a week and I wanted to make the best impression I could with my new and improved body. Upon arriving, I looked and felt amazing, and so did my boyfriend! But after days and nights of multiple mixed drinks and rich foods, I gained the weight back + a little extra. It was as if all of those months just went in the trash, and I didn’t want to do it all over again. However, it was only May, so I had the entire summer to either get back in shape on the same routine or accept that I was the weight that I was. Right? Wrong.

Once we got back home to our cozy apartment stocked with fruits and veggies of all sorts, I decided to do a little research of my own to see what would speed up my weight loss journey without any health risks or risks of gaining everything back the next day (WTF Military Diet???). After a few weeks, I came up with some nutritious, tasty, and filling weight loss smoothies that I could mix up right at home in my blender - with the added benefit of knowing what the h-e-double-hockey-sticks I was doing, thanks to my newfound, research-based knowledge (thank you, 24-hour university library). After testing them and even having a few of my friends try them out with me, we decided that they were sooooo good. But I had to see if they actually aided in weight loss…

For two consecutive weeks (14 days), I made a list of all of the smoothies and their benefits, mixed them up, and drank away. Before the two week mark, I was 133.8 lbs. After two weeks of drinking one of these smoothies per day (usually in the morning), I was 121.6 lbs. It was like magic, and I was so thrilled that I had to share it with others! I made sure to jot down the health benefits of the ingredients I used, how much I bought per week, the calorie count, and what other health changes I made, just in case any of you are looking to mimic the exact routine to get the best results. DISCLAIMER: Drinking these smoothies alone, without a healthy diet, exercise, and drinking plenty of water, will likely not cause weight loss on its own. These smoothies are meant to aid in and speed up weight loss based on health/diet articles and books written by professionals on the benefits of various fruits and vegetables. I am not a medical professional. Now, onto the ~smoothies~!

Smoothies:

1. Apple, Carrot, Ginger

This smoothie is might sound a little sketchy, but I promise it works magic! Apples are known to have anti-inflammatory properties that aid in weight loss and a boosted metabolism. They’re also chock full of antioxidants and help cleanse the digestive tract, so I guess the doctor wasn’t wrong about “an apple a day.” Carrots, like apples, also have anti-inflammatory properties and tons of antioxidants (plus a whole bunch of other, unrelated pros, like preventing congestion, constipation, and even acne), but also aid in the prevention of water retention, so say goodbye to water weight! Ginger is similar in that it also (surprise, surprise) has anti-inflammatory properties, but is a great and proven aid in weight loss. Triple threat, y'all

Spinach, Kale, Apple, Ginger, and Lemon
