Any juices of smoothies I can make myself to aid weight loss?

I have a tendency to snack but the other day I went to a juice bar and it filled me up so much I didn’t want to eat anymore! On the menu there was a juice that helped weight loss. So does anyone know the ingredients for a juice or smoothie I can make at home that would aid weight loss??? Thanks!!!

    go for celery with ginger, few calories and will fill you up.

    Stay away from fruit- there is too much sugar and it will make you gain weight- try beetroot or carrot-add ginger to give it some flavour.
    Be warned- beetroot goes through you faster than a dodgy curry.
    Good luck

    Fruit is fine actually.
    Beets, have just as much sugar as any other fruit or vegetable. Sugar is in fact, often made from sugar beets.
    Lean protein such as fat free yogurt mixed in to your smoothies will help you feel full longer.
    The only time you want to avoid fruit, is on an Atkins type of diet. And I really don’t recommend that for long term weight loss.

    most fruit juices are simply the water and sugar removed from the fruit. no fibre to slow down the sugar absorbtion. That said, I find that juicing vegetables with a little fruit can be useful. I particularly love 1/4 beetroot with 1/2 apple, 1 stick of celery, a 1cm cube of ginger and 2 carrots.

    You can find juice mixes that will fill you up, however, always remember that sugar if not used up will turn into fat to be stored in your body, so be careful with that.

    Try to stick with juicing any salads or vegetables. Barley and wheatgrass are great to throw in, as is spirulina. Check the ingredients in the juice that is supposed to help you lose weight. While individually the ingredients may be good for you, as always, too much of a good thing can put the weight on!!

    whatever you do either add ginseng or some energy booster

    Here are some of the recipes that I use. They are low calorie and taste great. Even the ones that contain dried fruit and nuts are very good for you, just don’t drink these particular ones everyday. Two times per week or at the weekends as a special treat would be fine.

    They are all from the Juice Master (Jason Vale)
    It may be useful buying some of his books. He has produced a wealth of amazing tasting juices and smoothies.

    Hope these help.

    Juice Master’s Athlete’s Elixir

    The best forms of carbohydrates on the planet are fruits and
    vegetables. Many athletes feel they need loads of pasta and
    bread before a major event, but having completed a triathlon
    myself with only the following juice inside me, I know first hand
    that nature knows best. I would suggest having this an hour
    before an event and then again afterwards.

    1 banana
    3 pitted dates
    1⁄2 teaspoon honey – Manuka or similar ‘active’ honey

    smoothie designed to fill you out in all the right places.

    Juice Master’s ‘5 Portions
    in a Glass’ Smoothie

    We hear all the time that we must have 5 portions of fruits and veg a
    day, but how many of us actually get around to having them? I call
    this delicious smoothie ‘5 portions in a glass’, but as the official
    guidelines stand, no matter how many different combinations of
    fruit and veg you have, if it’s in the form of a juice it only ever counts
    as one portion. This clearly is nonsense but, hey, the law is the law.
    Anyway, if you have just one glass each day you will be getting more
    genuine nutrition than most people get in a month.
    Juicy Ingredients
    2 apples
    1⁄4 pineapple
    1 inch slice courgette
    1⁄2 avocado
    1 stick celery
    1 inch slice cucumber – diced
    1 lime
    Juicy Instructions
    Juice 11⁄2 of the apples along with the pineapple, celery and
    courgette. Dice the rest of the apple and place into blender
    along with diced cucumber and ice. Blend until thick and
    smooth.

    Juicy Tip:
    If this is too thick for you, add a little
    mineral water and blend again.

    Juice Master’s Kids’ Veggie Special

    Can’t get your kids to eat their veg? Well, ever thought about
    getting them to drink them? This is a way of mixing some highly

    really in it!
    Juicy Ingredients
    1 small raw beetroot
    2 Apple – Golden Delicious or similar
    1⁄4 small pineapple
    1 stick celery
    1 small handful spinach
    1 inch slice cucumber
    Ice
    Juicy Instructions
    Simply juice the lot and pour over ice! The beetroot will
    make this juice very red so you can tell the kids it’s some
    kind of berry juice – sometimes a little white lie can be for
    the good.

    Juice Master’s Salad Juice
