Weight Loss Smoothie with Tomato, Celery, Garlic and Basil

The enzymes in tomatoes help the kidneys filter out and eliminate large quantities of fatty deposits. Tomatoes have been found to reduce water retention in the body, as well as reversing leptin resistance. Leptin is a type of protein which helps to regulate metabolic rate and appetite, so our bodies rely on it to shed those extra pounds.

Raw celery functions as a natural diuretic, which prevents fluid retention. Its high calcium content helps to remove fat.

Garlic contains the compound allicin which suppresses the appetite and aids in weight loss by increasing metabolism.

Basil helps relax and reduce stress levels, boosts energy levels and will stop you reaching for fatty snacks.
