Blood Orange Superfood Smoothie If you have been around here before, you know that I believe smoothies have been the biggest contributor to my significant weight loss to-date. I drink a smoothie every morning and love the energy the smoothies give me and the weight loss benefits as well.

Paleo, or Paleolithic diets have become increasingly popular especially for weight loss. The basic premise is that human bodies have not sufficiently adapted to eating foods that weren’t available some 10,000 years ago. More than 70% of food available today was not available in Paleolitic times. It’s no secret that humans, Americans in particular, consume a lot of processed food with additives and preservatives that just can’t be good for the body, especially in large quantities.
