  • Fight Flab Smoothie


    Burning extra fat never tasted so good

    2 peeled grapefruits, 2 peeled oranges, 1  lemon with peel, 140g live low fat yogurt

    Oranges; have high vitamin C content which is great for burning fat.  Vitamin C is also the main producer of the amino acid Carnitine, which helps flush fatty acids and toxins from the body.  Cut into eight and add to the blender.

    Lemons; are full of vitamin C, which has been shown to counteract free radical damage caused by exercise.  Slice and add to blender.

    Grapefruit; is full of fibre and falls low on the glycaemic index.  It  can help stop snack attacks.  They are also high in flavonoids and terpenes that have cancer-preventing properties.  Dice and add to the blender.  Blend the fruit to a fine pulp.

    Yogurt; is a great source of calcium and protein, helping you to stay full for longer.  Research suggests that people who get their calcium from yogurt may lose more weight from around their stomach.  Add the yogurt to the blender and blend again.  If to thick add skimmed milk to thin.
