I have only been using my nutribullet for about a week and have been enjoying them. However I am concerned that I am using to much fruit. Below are a few of my drinks 1/2 large cup Spinach, 1/2 cup each - Banana, strawberry, peach, 1 tbsp chia seeds, 1/2 coconut water, 1/2 unsweetened Almond milk, 2 tbsp rice protein. Is this an okay mix for my daily nutriblast while trying to lose weight? Thanks.

How do you feel? You are getting about 3 servings of fruit in your Blast, depending on what you eat throughout the rest of the day this could be fine. If you find yourself eating fruit at all your meals, then you may be overdoing it. Look at your overall fruit intake, aim for 3-5 servings per day.
Hi, just got a NB for Christmas. I have been doing mostly the phase 1 blasts. I started at a good weight but have already put on several pounds. I have only been doing half a blast a day and have been substituting it for breakfast. I have been vegetarian for 38 years. I went vegan, soy free, sugar free and wheat free about 10 years ago because I had some joint pain and swelling and this worked. I have never been able to eat much fruit because I start to gain weight but I worry that I may be missing important nutrients in fruit. I am very healthy but have not slept well for many years. These last few weeks I have been sleeping great! Hard to describe but I have a general feeling of well being too. I have heard that it is import to get about 30% of our calories from fat. And that that actually helps us burn fat (counter intuitive I know). Because my diet tends to be low in fats anyway do you think the extra calories in fruit has upset my percentage of fat calories and that might be why I am gaining weight. I have been adding walnuts and some seeds. Should I add more fats to my diet before I start cutting back on the fruit? Will this help me drop the extra pounds? I really don't want to miss out on all the good nutrients in the fruit. Thanks for any ideas. ps-- my husband has been drinking the other half of the blasts and he is losing weight but he is not vegetarian.
