The nutritional info 

Blueberries are high in fibre, which keeps you feeling full and makes you less tempted to snack.

Whey protein contains amino acids that help to balance your blood sugar levels and prevent fat storage.

Coconut milk provides fats that help with weight maintenance by boosting your fullness levels.

Green tea is rich in catechins, a type of flavanoid that stimulates the body to burn more calories.

Cinnamon helps reduce the production of insulin – a hormone that turns excess sugar into fat.

Kale is an excellent source of magnesium, which plays an important role in protein synthesis.
