High Protein Fruit Smoothie Recipes For Weight Loss (5 Ingredients or Less!)
Aren’t protein smoothies the best? They’re easy, healthy, quick, and flavorful.  
Never tried protein powder?  Think of it this way: If you love fruit smoothies, but feel hungry after just like 30 minutes, a great way to turn a smoothie into a full meal is to add in protein powder (you can choose any flavor, brand, vegan etc) Typically a serving of protein powder will add 15-30 grams of protein to your fruit smoothie, making it a more filling, well-balanced meal.
Use frozen fruit in smoothies because you can skip the step of adding ice. Try these fruits in your next smoothie:
  • Bananas
  • Mangoes
  • Strawberries
  • Blueberries
  • Raspberries
  • Pineapple
  • Melon
  • Use unsweetened almond milk (or milk of choice) as your liquid because it is low in calories and high in vitamins and minerals, and also gives a good consistency or water, and 1 cup of protein (could be unsweetened, vanila, chocolate, the flavor works best for you) 
Veggies and other non “fruits” add a nutritional punch to shakes, too. Consider spinach, avocado, kale, and cucumber.
If you find your smoothie to be too sweet, add lemon juice
If the taste is too bitter, add pineapple, orange, or banana
Natural sweeteners like honey and pure maple syrup work great in smoothies
Avocado can add creaminess to a smoothie, not to mention a load of nutrition
The riper the banana, the sweeter the shake
Don’t add juice from the grocery store shelf to your smoothie. Choose liquids like coconut water and unsweetened almond milk like we did for the 5 High Protein Fruit Smoothies for Weight Loss found in this post. Other good choices are hemp milk and soy milk.
Add healthy fats like Greek yogurt and avocado. That way, along with the fat, you’ll get extra protein from the yogurt and vitamins and antioxidants from the avocado.
Don’t forget your greens. They add extra nutrients and blend in well with fruits like bananas and strawberries.
Looking to add protein to your smoothie without adding powder? There is an easy solution for that; just add one of these yummy ingredients:
  • Plain Greek yogurt
  • Cottage cheese
  • Unsweetened kefir
  • Unsweetened soy milk
  • Nut butter, such as almond or peanut butter
  • Flax seeds
  • Chia seeds
  • Egg whites
  • Oatmeal

Waist Training Exercises For Beginners
If you're looking to slim your waist as much as possible and get rid of belly fat, these abdominal exercises are going to be an amazing compliment. 
We do not recommend doing them while having the corset on. These are additional exercises  that will help you to speed up the process through this waist training journey! 
For exercises and videos to do with the Corset on please check our Instagram and Facebook site!

Exercise #1: Planks
There are also so many variations of planks. Unlike crunches, planks work more ab muscles and have a greater flattening effect. They work the deeper core muscles such as the transverse abdominis in addition to the arm and leg muscles.
If you’re new to planks, start easy by holding it for 30-second intervals or trying elbow planks before increasing difficulty.
Exercise #2: Bicycle Crunches
Bicycle crunches are a variation of crunches that work multiple ab muscles such as the transverse abdominis and obliques.
To do bicycle crunches, lie flat on the floor. Then, bend forward so that your left elbow touches your right knee. Repeat this on the alternate leg and arm.
Exercise #3: Leg Raises
Leg raises are an amazing ab exercise that targets your deeper core muscles and lower abs.
To do this, lie flat on the floor with your arms beside your hips and your legs together. Then, slowly raise your legs (keeping them together) toward the ceiling. Lower them again, repeating this movement.
Exercise #4: Hanging Knee raise 
The first step is to grip the bar in a stable position. It can be shoulder-width or a little broader or narrower, depending on your preference. What’s important is that you get a firm grip and that you don’t pull yourself upward too much or be entirely loose, as this can cause swinging. Bring your legs up to about 90 degrees, then slowly back down. Do this for multiple reps.
Exercise #5: Oblique V crunch  
Begin this exercise by lying down on your side. The bottom of your left arm should be facing the floor, your fingers spread to put your weight on that side. Take your right arm behind your head for support. Keep your neck nice and straight, putting no pressure on it. Take an inhale first and as you exhale, press through your left palm and lift your legs to come into a V position. Make sure to crunch your obliques to get the best results.
Tips for beginners
Tip #1: Don’t Over Tighten The Corset
The biggest mistake beginners often make is to be extreme from the start. Our bodies take time to adjust, and this includes your waist. Tighten the waist trainer to only a level you feel comfortable enough to breathe, talk, and move in.
Tip #2: Drink Plenty Of Water
Because you will be sweating more with the corset if you use it to workout, it’s important to stay hydrated.
 Tip #3: Listen To Your Body
Most importantly, it’s vital to listen to your body. Do not ignore sharp pain and discomfort. While waist trainers can be slightly difficult at first, they’re not meant to cause pain and discomfort over a long time. If there is persistent pain weeks after starting waist training, do the following:
Check that you’re wearing the waist trainer correctly
Ensure you’re only wearing them for the specified time (4-8 hours)
Consult a medical professional
