If you had the power to make your life better with the push of a button, would you use it?
Well, that power is yours. With one simple whir, you can turn your body into a hyper-efficient fat-burning machine by revving up your metabolism, toning and defining your muscles, and turning off the genes that contribute to fat storage and myriad chronic health issues.
All you need is a blender, and the recipes in this book.
Zero Belly Smoothies are plant-based protein drinks that have been shown to make a dramatic impact on people’s lives in as little as 72 hours. They will flatten your belly, heal your digestive system and strip away unwanted fat in just days. All you need to do is blend them up and drink them down.
I know these smoothies will work for you, and fast, because I’ve seen them work for so many others. Consider the case of Fred Sparks. A 39-year-old emergency-response advisor from Katy, Texas, Fred used Zero Belly Smoothies as part of his weight-loss program. “I noticed results in the first week,” he says. “It really was amazing.” Fred lost 21 pounds and 5 inches off his waist in just the next six weeks.
Martha Chesler, 52, who lost 21 pounds and 7 inches off her waist in less than 40 days, had the same experience:
“I saw results immediately.” she says. In fact, our original Zero Belly Test Panel of more than 500 men and women lost as much as 3 inches off their waist in less than a week, and 16 pounds in the first 14 days. Now, you can achieve results like these even more quickly, with this carefully created, highly effective sample of the delicious drinks you’ll find in Zero Belly Smoothies.
 
What’s So Special About Smoothies?
They are fast, effective, simple to whip up, and delicious, which makes them ideal for a weight loss program. Consider the proof:
In a 2012 study in Current Nutrition and Food Science, researchers put a group of obese adults on a regimen in which they replaced breakfast and dinner with a high-protein smoothie. That was all: no exercise, no limit on what else they could eat. After 12 weeks, the subjects lost up to 18.5 pounds and reported significant improvements in “physical functioning, general health, vitality, and mental health.”
A high-protein diet featuring meal- replacement drinks is more effective than exercise at helping people lose weight and keep it off, according to a 2013 meta- analysis of 20 studies in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.
Five percent of your body weight is the gold standard to prove effectiveness in a weight-loss plan. But smoothie-based plans beat that number consistently. In a study at the University of Kentucky in 2009, patients were asked to drink at least 3 smoothies a day. After 18 weeks, the subjects lost an average of 16.4 percent of their body weight—up to 44 pounds!
When researchers at Columbia University crunched the numbers on six separate studies following dieters on either a smoothie-based plan (one or two smoothies a day) or a reduced-calorie plan, they found that both sets lost weight, but those on the smoothie-based plan experienced “significantly greater weight loss” at both the 3-month and 1-year marks. In a 2015 review of studies on weight-loss plans, researchers at Johns Hopkins reported that participants who used low-calorie meal-replacement drinks like smoothies lost more weight than other dieters over the course of 4 to 6 months.
Are you ready to make the magic work for you?
 
It Worked for Her!
I’ve been amazed and gratified at how Zero Belly has changed the lives of thousands of Americans. Before going on the plan, Jennie Joshi would avoid walking past the full-length mirror in her Morristown, NJ home. “I hated the way I looked. I wanted to see the old me,” says the mother of two.
Anyone who has had a child knows that feeling and how difficult it can be to lose pregnancy weight. A University of Chicago study last year found that 75 percent of moms were heavier than they were pre- pregnancy a year after giving birth and 45 percent had retained more than 10 pounds.
A high-risk pregnancy made it impossible for Joshi to exercise; she even had to limit her walking. Her weight gain was more than she had expected, and she struggled to lose it. “I really wanted to get rid of my belly,” she says. But the calorie-cutting diet programs weren’t doing it for her; then she learned about the Zero Belly Diet and signed up as one of the program’s first test panelists. She was drawn to its no-sacrifice approach: “I loved that I could just focus on eating healthy foods and not worry about controlling portions.”
She says the healthy recipes in the book made the difference because they included family-friendly options that even a foodie like her husband would enjoy. “Unlike a fad diet that you do once and stop, it’s a lifestyle that’s easy to make your own,” she says.
Joshi also followed the program’s suggested workouts and mixed in some running, spinning, and Zumba. In just four weeks, she lost 11 pounds.
“I saw the pregnancy pooch leaving,” she says, and she pressed on, eventually dropping 26 pounds and fitting into a size 4 dress.
Her co-workers were astonished. “They wanted to know what I was doing.”
What she was doing was drinking Zero Belly Smoothies.
 
And It’ll Work for You!
One of the key components in Zero Belly Smoothies is the veggie protein powder and use of nut or dairy-free milks. Unless you’ve been living in an igloo for the past two decades, you should know by now that Americans do not eat enough fruits and vegetables. In fact, recent surveys have found that only about 30 percent of Americans are eating the recommended 5 or more servings of fruits and vegetables a day. That’s a pretty pitiful performance and no doubt a partial cause of the obesity epidemic that grips this nation.
Another cause: Over the years, the line between smoothie and milkshake has been irrevocably blurred by the beverage industry. What was once a reliable, all-fruit concoction is now likely to be an ice-cream-and-added-sugar extravaganza, capable of carrying over 2,000 calories a serving (see Smoothie King, Hulk).
If you happen to be one of those 7 out of 10 of us who don’t eat enough plant matter, then you need to make fast friends with Zero Belly Smoothies. They’re the quickest, most delicious way to make up for the fruit-and-vegetable deficit, no ice cream required: Roll out of bed, toss some fruit in a blender, top with a bit of liquid, hit “liquefy.” Boom! You’re on the path to a skinnier, healthier you!
 
 
Test Panel favorite!
BLUEBERRY DAZZLER
 
Try the smoothie that ABC News correspondent Dan Harris called “dazzling!” Consider using wild blueberries (you can find them in the freezer section); they’re higher in just about every nutrient than conventional blueberries.

I've never been one to have to worry about my weight. Five foot tall with an athletic build (with little effort), hovering around 100 lbs for forever years. Then menopause hit. Over the last few years, I gained 20 lbs, most of it in my trouble area - the belly. Or so, it seemed. 120 may not seem overweight to some, but as a small boned/framed, petite lady, it was like being pregnant two times over.

A little over four months ago I started to get a grip on it. Never a fan of diets (in theory), I started working out five times a week. A few Leslie Sansone walking videos three times a week and yoga/stretching on alternating weekdays. Since I've never really had to worry about what I ate, I didn't really make any major changes in my diet. It took me two months to snap out of that denial. So, it took me four months to lose 10 lbs.

I was feeling and looking better, but still wanting to get to my goal weight of 100, which is where I feel most comfortable physically. And my belly was still very much my trouble spot. I started losing momentum on the motivation train. After doing some research, I saw that the Zero Belly Smoothies was coming out in a week. David Zinczenko has been in the belly business for years, so of course, I'd heard of his passion and even though, I've never even had a smoothie, I liked the idea of no focused shopping and eating, AND the possibility of losing up to 16 pounds in 14 days.

It worked. Still working out five times a week (nothing hardcore) and replacing breakfast and dinner with Zero Belly Smoothies - eating pretty much what I wanted, yet sensibly, for lunch and on the weekends, I lost 10 lbs in 10 days, and my belly is as flat as its gonna get.

The smoothies are quick, easy and delicious.

PLEASE DISREGARD the one star rating by Devout Patriot. Not sure if they reviewed the right book. This book is GREAT on my Kindle for PC. The opening pages has a great table of contents that is interactive. You can click on the chapter title and it takes you right to that chapter in the book. Are you in the mood for a Green Smoothie? Tap on "Chapter 6" and you're there. Also, the only advertising I have found are three pages where they show companion books - Zero Belly Diet (2 pages) and Zero Belly Cookbook (1 page). There are several chapters before any recipes which discuss many topics..."Busting the Smoothie Myth", "How Zero Belly Smoothies Smooth Out Your Belly", etc. These are very informational. But then there is recipe after recipe, all very nicely grouped into themes...Fruit Smoothies, Green Smoothies, Savory Smoothies, etc. I've been looking for more options for smoothies that doesn't require or recommend a specific product or protein brand, etc.

This book is full of delicious, filling smoothie recipes that will work for anyone. They are all vegan and gluten free. Many of them do use almond mill and/or nut butters, so if you have nut allergies you will have fewer choices. These smoothies are based on the Zero Belly Diet, so if you are on that diet this book will give you a ton more choices for how to do the diet. Also, it contains a pretty good summary of the diet, so you don't have to buy that book first before you can use this book.

This is a great Zero Belly Diet book. I did the ZBD and lost the weight last year. But after falling back into bad habits, I'm back on it. This is the book that's kickstarted my January return to healthy eating with tasty and simple additions to my menu. Also, I NEVER expected enjoy a savory smoothie. Now I've got several to recommend.

I got this as a gift from my parents to help me eat better at college. They can make smoothies there, but I never knew what to ask them to put in or not put in to make a smoothie healthy. Now I know exactly what to ask for. I plan to have a smoothie instead of at least one meal every day from now on.

I have a lot of acid issues with my stomach and sometimes the bloating would get so bad I couldn't eat. I bought this book to detox my body in a way that would also allow me to eat food. After one week of following the smoothie recipes exactly, I saw a huge difference.
I replaced two meals a day with smoothies, but added snacks like almonds. My bloating was gone, the pain was gone, and my waist was smaller than it's ever been. I'm 120 normal but after two weeks I am done to 108. I wasn't looking to lose weight, just to lose the bloat feeling. I'm beyond happy and will continue drinking smoothies, but now with regular meals.
