1. Not Enough Fiber
Fiber makes you feel fuller longer, helping you eat less throughout the day. How’s that for easy weight loss?! Getting more fiber into your diet also helps keep you regular by moving waste out of your body. For fiber-rich smoothies, add kale (has 2x the fiber of spinach), avocado, pear and flax seeds. Aim for at least 10 grams of fiber in your smoothie.
