20/20 Diet | Dr. Phil |Blueberry Peanut Butter Smoothie | CreativeCainCabin.comHas anyone read through Dr. Phil’s new book, The 20/20 Diet”? I happened to pick up a copy because I knew there would be some recipes I would like to try. There’s several weight loss smoothie recipes if you’re looking for a quick meal that fills you up and is easy to prepare. Below is one of my favorite smoothie recipes. Give it a try, you’ll be amazed at how long it holds off the hunger.

With age, I mean after 40 and hormone changes, (Oh my did I say that? I still have my kids convinced I’m 29) weight loss seems impossible. I eat clean and exercise every day, right now I’m doing the 21 Day Fix workout DVD’s and let me tell you they kick butt every day, and I still seem to stay the same size. I don’t want to be Twiggy but it would be nice to put on a pair of pants and not have a muffin top. I’ve recently lost 30 pounds after a horrible fall last winter. It took me 5-6 months before I could walk normal again and I was unable to exercise during that time. So the weight I lost was just what was gained during that time. 

I say now that I’ve lost the fat on top of the fat. I would like to shed 20 more pounds before summer hits, so wish me luck.

    I love smoothies. YUM!!! I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but losing weight unfortunately just keeps getting harder as we age. ๐Ÿ™

  2. Rondell says

    Losing weight, I’m 63 ahmmm, is so hard I’ve lost the same 4 lbs the past two months over and over! I do the 21 Day fix too and it certainly is not for babies, I have noticed a difference in my jeans and other clothes, I have just started Shakeology 4th day today so I’ll let you know after a month goes by! I also gave you a shout out on my blog today:) Love blueberries!

      Rondell that is the worst to keep taking off the same few pounds and then regaining them. I love the 21 day fix workout, I have friends I do it with and we mix it up all the time. Can’t wait to hear how Shakeology is working for you. Thanks for the shout out I’m headed over to check it out.

    Due to months of old pc and new pc problems I must have missed your post about your fall. I’m so sorry to hear that, hope you didn’t have to spend time in hospital. How did you hurt yourself? Must have been one heck of a fall. No fall is good but one that debilitates a person as you were is worse.
    I fall quite often due to hearing problems and lousy balance, also one of my meds says to be watchful due to possible dizziness from meds. Due to my age (74) & osteoporosis I’m concerned about breaking a bone. One time I fell right on my butt on our front yard hill in San Diego and broke 2 vertebrae, talk about painful. I’d been packing my Bronco 2 to go to CO river outside Yuma, AZ for Easter weekend, ended up spending weekend in hospital. I know it’s so possible for me to break a hip. My bones are in bad shape, lost bone in mouth, lost all my bottom teeth. Hope you don’t have osteoporosis and if you do you take D3. I’ve had menopause since mid 30’s due to lack of thyroid, had early onset menopause at 31 due to hysterectomy. thyroid didn’t work when I was born. Total bummer. Sometimes being a woman is big pain everywhere, lol.
    Did you go to physical therapy after your fall? Or maybe pt would help you now. So sorry to hear you have had such a hard time walking. Hard to get things done with such a situation. Do you have to go up any stairs? Don’t remember enuf about your home. Take really good care of yourself and pray you’ll be doing better as soon as possible. I pinned this recipe for smoothie. There are lots of things I can’t eat anymore due to no bottom choppers, drat. I have greek yogurt for breakfast and blueberries and raspberries. Get some good protein that way.
    Hope you have great weekend

    I have lost and gained the same 10 pounds over and over again. Clearly I have that pattern down pat ! Your smoothie sounds great and I love blueberries so I will give it a try and see if it helps keep me fuller longer…Thanks for the recipe

    I drink a weight loss smoothie every morning. I love blueberries & banana smoothies w/Chia seeds in it. I have tons of really good smoothies for weight loss, so I have many to pick from each morning. In the last 2 months I’ve lost over 40 plus pounds. I feel so good about myself. I still have more weight I want to lose. Right now I’m just wearing a belt w/my clothes, or they fall off. Since I have more weight I want to lose, right now I’m not going to buy any new clothes that I will grow out of. I don’t want to waste any money on clothes unless I absolutely have to.

      Renee, Congrats on such a big weight loss. What are you doing besides the smoothies that seems to work for you?

  9. Renee says

    I’m not doing really anything else except drinking detox waters that help me lose weight
    Since I’m disabled it is very hard to exercise since I’m in a wheelchair.

    • says

      Renee do you make your own detox water or purchase it?

  10. Renee says

    II maker my own detox waters & juices. There are a lot of Detox waters & juices on Pinterest that I drink during the day.

    • says

      Renee I’ll have to look for them. Have you ever detoxed with essential oils?

  11. Renee says

    I haven’t tried making my smoothies w/essential oils yet, but I plan to real soon when we go to our health food store & buy them. I want to put them in my detox waters too. I want to get citrus ones plus lavender. I love the smell & taste of lavender in foods like healthy cookies & scones. They say they are really good for your body. Will let you know how they work out when I buy & make the smoothies & detox waters.

    • says

      Renee I use Young Living oils for everything. I put the citrus ones in my water if I want a change.
