Fruit smoothies in the morning?

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created August 12, 2013 at 5:02 PM

So for the past week I have been making fruit smoothies with strawberries, bananas, blueberries, raspberries, and then some kale, chard and powder that removes heavy metals from your body called geo force. I am wondering about the sugar and if its "healthy" to have so much in the morning. This isn't my only breakfast I usually have this first and then make some eggs and sausages. It's the only way I will eat kale and chard because I don't like them and it is also usually the only fruit I am having for the rest of the day. Any thoughts?

You don't understand. You cannot forcefully "detox", "cleanse" or "rid the body" of heavy metals, pollution, or radiation. Your body already does that on an ongoing basis, that's one of the main functions of the liver. Ingesting clay has not been studied and to consume it is foolish and potentially harmful. At the least, it is a waste of money.

I think you guys misunderstood my point in the geoforce thing. It's just a clay looking powder that helps cleanse the body of pollution, heavy metals, and radiation. I don't think it will cause any harm. I accidently typed geoforce when it's called zeoforce. here is a link about it: http://www.seacoast.com/zeoforce/healthforce-nutritionals/400-grams-powder/p5106

Are you at weight, under weight, or over weight? What else are you eating?

To do so without the aid of a qualified physician who can calculate the appropriate dosages and monitor vitals would be foolish, and illegal.

Yes, using proven IV chelation agents such as disodium EDTA and calcium disodium EDTA. No other substance is used for the chelation of heavy metals from the body.

Heavy metals can be removed without the aid of a "qualified" healthcare provider.

Sounds good, only suggestion is to remove the geo force because you cannot "remove heavy metals" from your body unless you undergo chelation therapy with EDTA infusion from a qualified healthcare provider who has previously diagnosed you with lead and or mercury poisoning.

Adding additional protein to your shakes sounds like a good idea.

i usually have a smoothie for breakfast when I am out and about. it's just more convenient. I think as long as you keep within your carb range for the day, then it's totally fine. I always add fat to my smoothie and a scoop of collagen for protein. also use kefir for the liquid. this keeps me fuller than when I make just plain fruit smoothies.

It really depends on your goals. If you want to lose weight, you might want to drop the banana unless you are working out right after the smoothie. I feel like berries are a "safe fruit" if you are trying to drop some lbs.

If you are just shooting for overall health, then yes, your smoothie sounds pretty good! I personally like to eat fruit whole...frozen blueberries are always my dessert.

One idea for the kale/chard would be to blend them up for a quick second with the eggs (if you want scrambled). This has the same "no taste" effect AND makes your eggs green like Dr Seuss =)

Also, if you just eat healthy, I don't think you need to worry about taking that geo force stuff (but I really have no experience with this).
