Question: I have pcos and may have insulin resistance. Anywho, I am not sure which is a better approach for fastest weight loss. When I drink green smoothies I feel happy and usually my waist looks more defined. I usually would have a green fruit smoothie for bfast and lunch and at lunch some hummus and carrots and lean protein and veg for dinner. On a high protein low carb diet I have a hard time sleeping but I lose a pound a day but usually fall off the bandwagon within 7 days. People are always saying fruit has too much sugar so I didn't know on a pure weight loss stand point which would be better. ps I always add avocado and protein powder to smoothies and have hard boiled eggs etc.

Your problem was trying a high-PROTEIN diet, when you should try a low-carb high-FAT diet. It's curious the way you wrote your question, you don't seem to be aware of that option. A low carb diet must be high in FAT not protein. A high-protein/low-carb/low-fat diet does not work for human beings. Of course you fall off the bandwagon, any person who makes that mistake does. Being PCOS and insulin resistant you SHOULD eat a low-carb diet, if not the effects of insulin over time makes you fat, diabetic, and gives you a heart attack. But if low-carb, then you must get most energy from fat. The avocados are a good start; you can also get fat from meat, olives, coconut products, nuts, full-fat plain yogurt, etc. It is NOT good to eat more than a modest amount of fruit if you may be insulin resistant. Not sure what your idea of a smoothie is, but there are low-carbers who make green smoothies using lots of spinach or kale, maybe just a chunk or two of fruit added. You really need a good blender for that. Needless to say, to accept this you'll have to cross a barrier in your mind to unshackle yourself from the anti-fat dogma that pervades mainstream nutrition and has caused so much damage.

How to Use Garden Greens in Green Smoothies Why waste those precious greens, when you can make green smoothies. You can blend up a delicious beet tops recipe that the whole family will enjoy. Did you know that there are more nutrients in beet tops than the actual root? Most people cut the beet tops off and leave them in the garden for fertilizing the next crop. Or we cook a lot of those nutrients out of the tops and smother them with butter. Instead of cooking your beet tops, try making a tasty green smoothie. This harvest season, a friend of mine gave me a whole bag of beet roots and around 4 large bags of beet tops. I went home and washed the beet tops really well and placed 1 packed cup size servings in freezer bags for my future green smoothie recipes. Beet top smoothies are a little more mild than the radish tops smoothies. I suggest using 1 packed cup beet greens for a 4 cup smoothie. If you like a super raw food green smoothie, you can add more greens, like spinach or lettuce. Beet Top Green Smoothie Recipes Tropical Beet Smoothie 1 orange, peeled and seeded 1 banana, peeled 1/2 cup blueberries, frozen 1 packed cup beet tops, frozen 1 cup water Add the fresh fruit in first and then add the frozen ingredients. Blend until completely smooth. Serves 1-2 Just Peachy Beet Smoothie 1 peach, cut in 1 inch slices and pit removed 1 banana, peeled 1 cup blueberries, frozen 1 packed cup beet tops, frozen 1 dropper of Valencia Orange flavored stevia 1 1/2 cups water Toss the fresh ingredients in the blender first with the frozen ingredient on top. Blend away! Serves 1-3 Mixed Greens Smoothie 2 bananas 1 cup blueberries, frozen 1/2 cup pineapple, frozen 1 packed cup beet tops, frozen 2 handfuls spinach, fresh 1 1/2 cups water Add the fresh ingredient to the blender with the frozen ingredients on top. Blend until everything in completely smooth. Serves 1-3 Have A Great Green Smoothie Recipe?

I make three 16 oz low carb smoothies at a time and keep them in the fridge with a plastic bag held with a rubber band over each. They keep well for at least 3-4 days. Ingredients for 3 smoothies are as follows: 2 avocados (7 carbs); two scoops vanilla whey protein powder (6 carbs); 4 tbsp. of ground flax seeds (trace carbs); 2 cups spinach (under 1 carb); and one cup berries (8 carbs). I fill my Vitamix almost to the top with water and blend until completely consolidated (about 30 seconds on high). Each smoothie has 7-8 carbs and just under 400 calories. Be careful to buy whey protein that does not contain added sugar. If you want more calories and a greater percentage of fat, substitute a third avocado for some spinach or beef up the amount of ground flax seed. Although not part of the recipe, I add powdered potassium chloride, magnesium citrate, and calcium citrate to the batch in amounts that equal approximately one-half the RDA per individual serving.
