I have started incorporating green smoothies into my diet for health. I find it a great way to make sure I a getting my fruits and veggies (that's all I put in them no yogurt or anything). I find that they are ok to replace a snack or breakfast but not a meal- I get too hungry. My average green smoothie has about 150 cals. I suppose I could lose weight faster if I only had those but then I would feel deprived and sure as anything I would fall off the wagon. I definitely recommend a slow steady approach to your weight loss.
