How do we feel about smoothies?
So what to do? If you like smoothies, then opt for ones with yoghurt in for that added protein. It will slow down that rate of absorption of all of that sugar into your blood stream...all of a sudden those jeans feel a lot nicer!! Or, just go easy on them, 2 or 3 a day is no joy to your waistline even if you are getting your 5-a-day! The best time to drink them would be post-training when your blood sugar might be a little low anyway, and it could do with a little boost! Similarly, if you're tucking into a protein-rich tuna or chicken salad, washing it down with a smoothie would be a delight!
