Healthy Shake Recipes for Weight Loss

We all know how much bodybuilders and weightlifters love their protein shakes. But did you know that the same shakes are also good for weight loss?

It’s true, as long as you get the recipe right. What makes a shake so healthy for both building muscle and losing weight is its high protein content. In addition to supporting lean muscle mass, protein also gives your metabolism a major boost and actually uses up more calories during digestion. It also keeps you satisfied longer, helping you avoid those deadly cravings.

So the key ingredient to any healthy shake is protein. One of the best protein powders on the market today is Optimum 100% Casein Protein. It’s a leader in the industry, and the casein blend is naturally time-released, which means it will keep your metabolism enhanced even longer than your average whey protein.

Once you have your fat-burning protein, you need to choose ingredients that reflect your weight loss goals. Generally speaking, you need to keep added sugar to a minimum (which means little to no juice) and add lots of vitamins and minerals to keep you healthy and fit.

To help you out, here are 5 simple and easy healthy shake recipes for weight loss. Use them to jumpstart your day (and your metabolism), or use them as a meal replacement. Either way, they’ll totally help you burn more fat and lose weight!
