Weight Loss Smoothie with Cucumber, Celery, Pumpkin and Fennel

One serving of this weight loss smoothie is refreshing and filling, yet contains only 100 calories and no fat. Not only it will help to reduce hunger in between meals, but it also aids the body with digesting high fat, high protein foods.

The silicon and sulphur in cucumber, assisted by its high water content, stimulate the kidneys to wash out uric acid thus triggering the flushing out of stored fat.

Celery stimulates the pituitary gland, which regulates the body’s energy consumption. It is also rich in selenium, a trace mineral needed to activate the thyroid to boost metabolism.

Pumpkin curbs the appetite and assist in absorbing less fat and calories from food.

Fennel has appetite suppressing properties and creates a sensation of fullness in the stomach.
