Hi Brooke,

You mention in your Stop Overeating Workshop (which is PHENOM, by the way) that you don’t recommend juice or smoothies. I totally understand why you wouldn’t drink juice, but if you make a smoothie with real food (I always add dark berries and leafy greens), you are still getting the fibre from those ingredients, so it should conceivably keep you full (unlike a juice).

What I have noticed is that although I am full after eating a morning smoothie (I usually add protein powder, a nut butter or coconut oil or chia) to water or almond milk, I am full for a short period of time and then feel ravenous again later. Is this because the body recognizes it the same way it does pop or juice even though it is real food?

Thanks for your help!
