I work in a small office, and five months ago, two coworkers and I began getting vegetable juices from a local juice bar for breakfast and lunch. I really liked the effect it was having on my general wellbeing, so I pulled a tired old Krups juicer out of my closet and began making juices at home.
Meanwhile, I saw two documentaries that changed my life: Forks Over Knives and Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead. This led me to do more personal research concerning the value of a vegetable-based diet, with an emphasis on juicing.
The most frustrating part of using the Krups was the amount of preparation and clean-up required. Then, one night, I saw the NutriBullet infomercial. I usually don't watch infomercials, but this one came along at just the right time in my life. I did some research online to see what people thought of the product and, soon, I bought one.
It works exactly as promised and it's now part of my daily routine. I grow kale and parsley in my backyard and I buy lots of organic veggies like spinach and swiss chard. I now make at least two smoothies per day.
Yesterday, I got the results from my first checkup since I made the switch to being a vegetarian and began juicing. My LDL is down by 50 percent, and my other levels have improved by about 30 points each. I've also lost nearly 40 pounds.
During this period, I wasn't taking any medications. The only supplement I took was Red Rice Yeast, sporadically.
I'm 51 years old and I'm proud to say that the NutriBullet has been an excellent addition to my new, healthy lifestyle.
