Weetabix Breakfast Smoothie with Berries and Chia Seeds - Lose 9lb in 9 Weeks

For anyone that doesn't know,I am trying to loose 9lb in 9 weeks.  Can I do it?  I say yes I can!  Why 9 weeks; because we going on holiday and I want to look better.
Although we don't eat junk food and do eat more veg than I care to mention.  BUT we do love cheese and eat far too much of it and it has to stop.  Not entirely but we do need to cut down, not just to lose weight but to stay healthy.

Smoothie

Everyone knows that eating a lot of bread is a sure way of piling on the pounds and usually for breakfast I have two slices of toast.  On the days I go to work in my morning break I have another slice of toast.  We get 15 minute break which isn't time to eat properly but I know I could do better, it's just for quickness I think.
At weekends when I'm not working we (me and Paul the husband) have a bacon and egg sandwich and that too has to stop.

Get Sunshine Ready - Florida Grapefruit Smoothie Recipes

Just look at these delicious smoothies all using Florida Grapefruits - a super fruit!  They're so nutritious and high in vitamin content.  Grapefruit is good for our immune system too; One-half of a medium grapefruit or an 8-ounce serving of grapefruit juice contains at least 100 percent of the Daily Value for vitamin C, which helps support a healthy immune system.  A properly functioning immune system is necessary to help your body resist disease.

We probably all need to eat more fruit and research shows that 79% of women in the UK blame rain and cold weather for making them feel unproductive, but only 39% of these women eat their daily allowance of fruit in the winter so this isn't going to help!






































If you're not a lover of grapefruit, how about trying these smoothie recipes developed by Carin Leenders de Vries. I'll start with my personal favorite Red Sunshine Shake.
