How To Enhance The Results Of Zero Belly Smoothies

Zero belly smoothies are a part of Zero Belly Diet, a book and a diet plan created by David Zinczenko. This diet plan targets stubborn belly fat and promotes highly-nutritious power foods that can alleviate fat storage, boost your metabolism and tone up the muscles. 

When combined with a few lifestyle changes, zero belly smoothies can show better results. 

●  Take a brisk walk before breakfast as morning light regulates your body’s circadian clock and improves cardiovascular health.   

● 

Load your breakfast with fibre.

● Choose red fruits over the green. The higher levels of flavonoids—compounds that give the fruit its red colour—calm the action of fat-storage genes.

● Fill up on avocados as it’s highly nutritious and keeps you full for longer.

● Add plant protein to your smoothies and eat eggs, whole foods and healthy fats.

● Start your day by drinking citrus-infused (lemons, oranges or grapefruits) water to flush out the toxins.

The Bottomline

While rapid weight loss is not the best strategy (as it’s not a sustainable practice), sometimes you have exciting deadlines to fuel your fitness goals like a cousin’s wedding or New Year’s Eve party. 

So try these delicious blends once, feel the change and end your year on a positive note!
