For example, a study in the journal metabolism found that eating half a red grapefruit before a meal may help reduce visceral fat and lower cholesterol levels. When you combine fruit and dark chocolate (at least 70 percent cacao), you accelerate the release of butyrate, a compound made in your large intestine that tells your fat-storage genes to chill out. This is the world's most overlooked superfood: Studies show that parsley is actually more dense with nutrients than kale, dandelion greens, or romaine lettuce.

That said, my favorites are red fruits. while there are studies linking nearly every kind of fruit to some sort of health benefit, the most evidence tends to pile up around fruits that are red or reddish, like purple or orange fruits. For example, a study in the journal metabolism found that eating half a red grapefruit before a meal may help reduce visceral fat and lower cholesterol levels. Another study found that tart cherries reduce belly fat; blueberries, strawberries, and raspberries have also been linked to lower abdominal fat accumulation. so while a number of different fruits will show up in zero_point Belly Smoothies, expect many of your smoothies from this chapter to have a cool red or purple hue. That's a sign that you're getting a massive hit of antioxidants and fat-fighting fiber. All recipes make one serving. one Apple pi Shutterstock Pink Lady apples are among the most nutrient-rich varieties, according to a study at the University of Western Australia. This smoothie combines the apple with vanilla and cinnamon flavors to give you a uniquely autumnal fruit drink. ' Peach Out' Peach Oat Cobbler Shutterstock Like a light, summery bowl of oats—this is comfort food in a glass. Unless it's August and the peaches in your neck of the woods are perfect, opt for frozen peaches instead. The vanilla in the protein powder will combine with the peaches for a bright, warm, and hearty drink. Ginger ManEat This, Not That! Ginger packs high levels of health-boosting phytonutrients. but use fresh ginger: Chances are you bought that powdered ginger in your cabinet three years ago when you made a pumpkin pie, and it's been losing potency ever since. To keep fresh ginger on hand, break it into small chunks and freeze it, then allow to defrost before grating. strawberry Pistachio Cream Shutterstock Those Hulk-colored nuts have their own special fat-burning powers. In a recent study, two groups followed nearly identical diet and exercise regimens; however, one of the groups was fed unsalted pistachios, while the other group was not. Surprisingly enough, the pistachio group members lost more belly chub and showed better improvements in their blood glucose and cholesterol levels than the control group participants. banana Split Shutterstock Valentine's Day in a glass. Don't underestimate the healing powers of dark chocolate —it's not there as a gimmick. When you combine fruit and dark chocolate (at least 70 percent cacao), you accelerate the release of butyrate, a compound made in your large intestine that tells your fat-storage genes to chill out. GREEN smoothie When you think of green drinks, you probably think first about green juices. Juicing has been an insanely hot nutritional trend ever since Beyoncé claimed to use the Master Cleanse to get ready for Dreamgirls. popping into a juice bar for a cold cup of extruded kale juice may be all the rage, but when it comes to both nutritional impact and weight-loss power, juices can't hold a candle to smoothies. First, most commercial juices use apple juice, which is a high-sugar, low-nutrient base. (Most of the nutritional impact of an apple is in its skin, not the white pulp where most of the juice is extracted from.) Second, juicing strips all the natural fiber out of produce, which is like stripping the political backstabbing out of House of Cards: The rough stuff is what makes it good. And third, juices lack fat and protein; without these crucial elements, you're getting no fat-burning, metabolism-boosting benefits. Next time you want to drink your veggies, blend up one of these seriously nutritious recipes from the book Zero Belly Smoothies. All recipes make one serving. six lemon Kale protein Detox Shutterstock Putting lemon in your blender is like taking out a nutrition insurance policy for your smoothie. That's because a significant percentage of the antioxidant polyphenols in any food or drink break down before they reach your bloodstream. But researchers at Purdue University discovered that adding lemon juice to the equation helped preserve the polyphenols. Sprig Of ParsleyEat This, Not That! This is the world's most overlooked superfood: Studies show that parsley is actually more dense with nutrients than kale, dandelion greens, or romaine lettuce. Combine it with superheroes like watercress and chia and you've got a mighty fat-fighting drink. Romaine around Shutterstock We think of romaine lettuce as the crispy stuff at the bottom of a Caesar salad, but it's one of the ten most nutritious vegetables around, and higher in fiber than almost any other form of lettuce. And because it's mostly water, it makes this smoothie a real thirst-quencher. Tea For One Shutterstock I can't recommend green tea enough as a smoothie enhancer. IN fact, people who drink green tea regularly have nearly twenty percent less body fat than those who don't, according to one 10-year Taiwanese study. And EGCG, the unique ingredient in green tea, can deactivate the genetic triggers for diabetes and obesity. nutty AND CHOCOLATELY Have you ever heard of the "health halo"? It's a term nutrition experts use to describe foods that use a healthy-sounding word like natural on their labels, or add ingredients that people think of as good for you ("Now with chia!"), but which are really junk at heart. These smoothies are the reverse of that theory. These drinks are tremendously nutritious—packed with as much, or more, fiber, protein, and healthy fats as any other drinks in the whole book. But they seem like they're bad for you. How can drinks that seem like they came right from the ice cream shop flatten your belly so effectively? These are the drinks you'll whip up on a night when you want something to satisfy your ice cream jones. They're the recipes you'll lean on when your kids are complaining that they want something sweet for dessert. And they're the drinks you'll use to reward yourself after a hard day at work or in the gym. Deep, comforting, and delicious, these filling smoothies taste more like dessert than what they really are—powerful weight-loss weapons, compliments of the new book, Zero Belly Smoothies. All recipes make one serving. 11 Dark Chocolate Banana NutEat This, Not That! If you want your weight loss smoothies to taste like dessert, this recipe should be your go-to. Four words that combine to sound like a jam session at ben & Jerry's house. The density of the banana will have you convinced you're drinking a milkshake, while the omega-3s in the walnuts will keep your mind sharp and your belly lean.
