Are You Being Duped by Your Weight Loss Shakes

Are You Being Duped by Your Weight Loss Shakes?

Weight loss shakes are marketed as a fantastic option to help keep your calories, hunger, and macronutrients under control. I’ve used them in the past, though I stopped doing that when I started to try to put more whole foods in my life. When you make enough smoothies and have them ready in your freezer, you don’t need to spend the extra cash on weight loss shakes for diet support.

Can You Eat Fruit and Still Lose Weight?

When I was growing up, if I whined to my mother about being hungry, she’d tell me to eat fruit. Typically, that meant that I should have an apple. Apples were a staple in my house. Even if we were out of just about everything, we always had milk, bread, potatoes and apples in the house.

I heard the words “have an apple” so much that I loathed them by the time I was a teenager. Yet, somehow since then, those words have become appealing to me again. In fact, I love fruit. Yes, that includes apples. As I get older, it’s harder to lose weight and even harder to keep it off, which led me to ask, “Can you eat fruit and still lose weight?” Keep reading this post
