When I need to drop a few pounds quickly, I always rely on smoothies. If I use a smoothie as a meal replacement, I always add a scoop of protein powder and I eat a lot of fresh veggies and fruit. This particular smoothie is super low in calories and high in nutrients. It can be used as a snack and it’s great for controlling those unwanted cravings.
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
2 tablespoons low fat ricotta cheese
1 cup strawberries
handful of ice
1 packet stevia
Mix in a blender until smooth.

Are you a cheater? I’m not referring to cheating on a test or significant other. This is referring to diet and the reason you are not losing weight. Do you check in to your weekly or monthly weight loss session with the perfect food diary. Honestly, if you are consuming exactly what you have recorded then you should lose weight. Perhaps you snuck a few cookies or a piece of pizza when you swear to all that you’ve been on a strict diet. And let’s not forget those few beers or glasses of wine at the end of the day that you may have guzzled but refuse to acknowledge, even to yourself! These are just some of the ways we can tell ourselves and others that we are on a more straight and narrow path with our health goals than we actually are! Though in this case, the person we are really cheating is ourselves!
