The importance of other healthy routines

While it’s true that homemade smoothies can help us shed pounds, we always need to pair them with other healthy habits. We have plenty to say about healthy lifestyle habits, but we’ve selected the top three for weight-loss:

1. Exercising regularly

Exercise regularly

For effective weight-loss, you need to stay active by exercising at least three times a week.

If you’re on a tight schedule, you can set aside even just 30 minutes to walk daily. We have no doubt that you’ll notice a difference after a couple of weeks.


2. Drink plenty of water

Drink water

If you’re trying to lose weight, you should always keep your body hydrated.

So, we recommend drinking at least 6-8 glasses of water every day. To make it easier, you can keep a water bottle or thermos with you at all times; that way, you can’t forget to hydrate while you’re out and about.

3. Reduce your intake of processed and sugary foods

Sugary foods

A must for weight-loss plans is reducing your intake of sugary, fatty and high-caloric foods. It might sound painful, but we promise that it’s just a matter of readjusting and knowing how to make healthier substitutions.

If you want to ensure your success, we suggest making an appointment with a nutritionist. Your nutritionist can offer you diet solutions that best suit you.
