Add healthy fats and fiber to your shakes.

If you’re making your protein shake at home and your hope is to shed weight, celebrity chef and certified nutritionist Serena Poon says to make sure to add a bit of healthy fat and fiber. Adding fat may feel contradictory to dropping a pant size, but Poon says a small number of healthy options can keep you full and decrease your cravings. Her favorite options for protein shakes are avocado, nut butters, and coconut oil.

And don’t forget fiber: you can add almost any vegetable to your blender for added fiber. “Fiber also helps your digestive system run smoothly, so you will be less likely to experience bloat. If you eat too many raw vegetables, though, they may become difficult to digest and have the opposite effect,” she says. “Try out different veggies and quantities to figure out what works for you.”
