That's because all the sugar in the smoothies is making you fatter. The layer of fat being deposited all along the underside of your skin is smoothing out any perceived wrinkles.

Well that's a bit of a stretch to say that. Especially because people tend to not accumulate much fat in their foreheads anyway...

There is a scientific debate on the merits/demerits of natural vs processed sugar. Innocent Smoothies only have the natural sugar contained in the fruit.

We consume too much sugar through fruit too. Too much is too much. While it is natural sugar and you're getting vitamins and fiber with it it can do you harm.

I would avoid too much juice and stick to vegetables in my smoothies.

My standard one was carrot, avocado, broccoli, brazil nuts, peanut butter, tiny bit of ginger.

That sounds nice, Column. And you are right, smoothies like innocent smoothies are much healthier than just plain sugary drinks like soda, but even fruit sugar is bad for you if consumed in excess.

Fruits is always better than smoothies, but smoothies can be a good way to "eat" fruit when you just don't like it in its solid form.

Stuff like apple or orange juice can be nearly as bad for you as soda, though. It will cause insulin spikes which contribute to obesity and you'll be taking in calories that won't fill you up, they will actually make you feel hungrier.

It's ok. I dont use those ingredients because I like them, I use them to get veg into me.

Are whole fruits/veg better than home-made smoothies?

Marginally better, yes.

As a rule, the more processed a food is the less healthy it becomes.

You're gonna lose some vitamins and other good stuff, and in the case of fruits, juicing them and turning them into smoothies means your body will absorb them much quicker.

This can raise your blood sugar and also in liquid form they won't fill you up like they would otherwise, since they will be digested much quicker.

Foods that are apparently the same can have very different effects in your body. For example, pitta bread has a lower glycemic index than white bread, though the ingredients are the same.

Because the pitta bread is flat and compact, it is digested slowly, unlike plain white bread.

I see. I'm trying to find out why you would lose vitamins from processing the veg rather than eating them whole.

I'm 41 now - I've quite a few aches and pains when I sit cross legged on the floor and my hair is really going grey. I've also got mild arthritis in my fingers. But apart from that I'm pottering along.

Another element is human growth hormone which is produced when we sleep. It may help fight wrinkles or so I've read. So maybe moving tv out of bedroom helps.

That's what Thomas Burianek did.
He stopped watching TV and this happened.
