Weight Loss Smoothie with Romaine Lettuce, Spinach, Celery, Apple and Pear

Dark leafy greens like romaine lettuce, spinach, arugula and celery are full of vitamins, minerals and disease fighting phytochemicals while low on calories. They are also rich in fiber, an important nutrient for weight loss and maintenance because it keeps you feeling full and helps control your hunger.

Apples and pears contain large amounts of pectin, which can limit how much fat your cells can absorb.

Besides making the smoothie more palatable, lemon juice flushes out unwanted materials and toxins from the body and helps fight hunger cravings.
