Here is how helpful it is…

Want something filling right? This smoothie is a bundle of protein, springing from the apricot, almonds, yogurt and soy milk. The long chains of protein form a link that is so strong, it takes a while for your body to break it down.

Ever wondered while you feel fuller when you eat something like chicken instead of meat or nuts instead of cheesy snacks?

Protein is a packer!

Another component that tells your body you are full for longer time periods is fiber. This settles in your intestines and patiently waits until it’s time to transport your wastes. It also acts as a vacuum to your high cholesterol.

Where can you find this? They are present in the apricots and almonds.
