I introduced the Nutribullet into my life last October. No one can deny how much fun and how easy it is to use the Nutribullet, or even the tastiness of the Nutriblasts. I have dropped a lot of weight, 3 inches around my waistline, my cholesterol and triglycerides have declined and I am no longer on any medications. My energy levels are good and I feel all around great.
So, what happens when you come off the system after 6 months? I am currently putting that to the test, having just completed a trip east. For the past week, I was in Atlanta and NYC, and now I am in Boston. Soon, I will be leaving for Spain. Besides Madrid and Barcelona, I will head north to San Sebastian. San Sebastian is the culinary capital of the country, if not the world. So, in my left hand, I have my Nutribullet. In my right hand, I have a round trip ticket on Iberia Airlines. Who wins out? Let's talk about Atlanta and NYC first.
While there are no TSA restrictions prohibiting travel with a Nutribullet in your carry-on, I have opted to leave it on the kitchen counter. Clean, but alone and unplugged. Was this a good decision? Would I do it again? In the past 10 days, I have had no noticeable change in weight. Everything fits the same. I think my body has been cleansed for so long that all my organs are working great. I have been eating fresh fruits for breakfast, wraps for lunch. Dinners have been a problem. Dinners with wine...a bigger problem.
But, on the other hand, I have experienced the return of an old friend...more like an old, ugly ogre. I have noticed symptoms of acid reflux. What is acid reflux? Acid reflux occurs when the acids from your stomach "flow back" into your esophagus, causing discomfort and a foul taste in your mouth. When we leave a lot of food in our stomach, the stomach acids do their best to break it down and pass it on for digestion. However, those acids can rise above your stomach and pass into your esophagus and leave a foul taste in your mouth. The same acids can also result in heartburn... a sensation I do not have, but many do. Many times, you notice the foul taste of stomach acids in your mouth when you wake up.
There is medication you can take for acid reflux. They sell Prilosec at Costco and CVS, an over-the-counter remedy. But why take pills if you can attack and solve the problem with diet using the Nutribullet program? The Nutribuillet had solved this specific problem for me, and now the issue has returned. Maybe the question is not whether I should be taking the Nutribullet with me on board the airplane. Maybe the real question is whether I should take it as a carry-on, or buy it its own seat.....
