Protein Shakes

Is it possible/healthy to try and lose weight just using protein shakes supplemented with vitamin tablets for a shortish introductory period?

I'm a busy vegetarian and haven't got the chance to prepare lunchtime food at work.

Well, for a very short period of time, I would think. Maybe you can make some homemade V8 using fresh vegetables to add to your nourishment.

WOE: Fresh green smoothies with the Vitamix.and1,200cal
Start Date: April1 2013
Any one make green smoothies?
I have been doing for 13 months.Lost 40 lbs. Feel great. New way of eating also. Lots of veggies. I now put mostly greens in blast and use whey protein powder along with Max. green powder and chia seeds. Coco powder and lots of other healthy stuff. goes in. I satrted with a nutria bullet. and just this last Dec. got a vitamix.
Like to also add with doing my green smoothies, try to lower carbs. But Just have in salalds and veggies and fruits. No added sugars, It works doing green smoothies as i call them blast..

Congrats on your weight loss.

I haven't done any green smoothies yet, but I put lots of spinach in my v8+ drinks that I make.

I had a nutribullet, but I wore it out in less than 6 months.
Now I use a Healthmaster...sort of like a Vitamix and it is great for juicing.

Good to hear from you kind.
