I was reading a lot of different things on here while drinking my NB today and saw some place where it was suggested to test your sugar 2 hours after, so being a bit on the curious side, I did.  I am a diabetic who is diet controled no medication at all, so really expected it to be very high, since I do use quite a bit of fruit in mine.  WOW!!!  I was surprised as it was only 113!  I was expecting more around 175.  I was really impressed before, and more so now.  I have been doing this since April and feel great!  As I have said before, all of my #'s have gone into the better range except my good cholesterol and I am working on that one.  I figure I have way gotten my money back just in the way I feel.  Thank you NB and to all of the people who post all of their good tips!

Blast away all!

That is awesome! Thanks for sharing your story!

Thank you so much for sharing, that is very valuable information and will only help others with diabetes be inspired to achieve their goals.
Congratulations on your success. Thanks for sharing with us. Healthy Wishes Wally Bishop C.N.C.
I have had the same results as mentioned above. A Nutri Blast in the morning--LOWERS MY BLOOD SUGAR and it does not raise it at all. I use two veggies and two fruits sometimes three. I am on no medications for Diabetes so using a Nutri Blast helps me to control it very well.
Hello this is my first post on this site. I am not Diabetic at least not yet but I am interested in knowing about blast ingredients that specifically help prevent from diabetes and help repair any unknown damage that may have already happened to my pancreas? Thank you very much Also wondering if there is a limit to how many blasts I should have a day is it ok to have 2 blasts a day? 3? Or should I just stick with one? Thanks

The most important action you can take to prevent diabetes and stay healthy is to eat clean. Avoid processed and pre-packaged foods and always try to cook for yourself when you can. This way you know exactly what is going into the food you are making. Using the NutriBullet can help you stay on track to reach your clean eating goals. Always fill up your cup with half veggies, 1/4 low glycemic index fruits like apples, pears, peaches, apricots, figs, grapefruit and berries. Add some nuts and seeds like chia, hemp and flax and then use unsweetened almond milk, coconut water or water as your liquid base. You can even throw in some superfoods like ginger, turmeric, spirulina, maca and our Boost formulas. I would suggest starting out with 1 Blast per day and see how you feel. You may be able to increase to 2 per day just be aware that they do contain calories and you may want to replace a meal with a Blast. Check out our recipe section for more ideas: http://www.nutriliving.com/recipes
I am an insulin dependent diabetic. I limit the amount of fruit I eat at one time. If having tropical types of fruit, I eat a smaller quantity because of the higher sugar content found in them. It really causes my blood sugar to rise. It raises even faster in the Nutriblasts because it is broken down by the blending versus chewing the whole fruit. Knowing this, I lowered the amount of fruit found in most recipes to a 1/4 of the cup for my first time. Two hours later, I found my blood sugar had skyrocketed. I cut it down down even more for the second morning. I keep tweaking the fruit and have got it pretty much set. I use the low glycemic fruit as suggested in another posting. I find that using the fruits that grow in the northern climates are better for ME. By adding lots of fibre as well as choosing fruits with high fibre content slows the speed which the sugar enters my blood. A bonus is the fibre makes the Nutriblast more filling too! Good luck and keep up the good work.
I am new to this forum and to Blasting. So if I am doing this wrong please forgive me. I couldn't find any instructions for doing much here. Heck I couldn't even find a way to do a public profile..lol Oh well, that's life in the fast lane.. So far I am afraid it's turning out I once again fell for something that costs alot of money but just doesn't work for me. I am not saying it is not a great machine and probably works great for everyone else..lol It's just the way life works for me. I have only had the machine for a few, so have only tried Blasting a few times. But my BS reacts badly to it so am now afraid to try another blast. I am so happy that it seems to work for you all and wish I was among that special group. If your are curious what I made the blast with ... I used the smaller cup since I really can't see using the larger one with what I am allowed to have. I filled most of the room with a mix I found in the store, Kale and baby spinach. Then I put in 2-3 baby carrots, you know the ones that come in a bag for like stews and such. Flax seeds and then filtered water.. tasted bad so added some Stevia and that helped. That was the 1st Blast I made. My BS was high enough that I had to take more insulin at the next meal. For the second Blast I tried adding actual fruit, had some blueberries in the freezer forever so finally got to use the,m .lol Same result Blood Sugar wise..sigh But I was determined to keep trying. 3rd Blast all the above but added 3 pieces of Pineapple..probably like 1/4 cup with room to spare in the measuring cup. Added some Vanila protein powder in case that was the problem... eww tasted aweful and didn't help the BS. In the mean time, I decided to go crazy and get the more powerful 900 watt in hopes that it would be less gritty. (Side note... I am sad, I don't know how, but the Blast I made with the new machine was actually grittier!! Eww) So 4th and maybe final Blast was yesterday when I got the new machine in... Man I was excited.,lol This time I added the Boosters that came with the machine along with everything else (Except that blueberries since the Boosters had berries).. Sure enough 2 hrs later my BS was wayyyy over 200. sigh! I got this machine because I am killing myself with poor eating. My diabetes is uncontrolled and I am weak, confused, anxious and in pain from some of my other health problems most of the time. I just have so many stupid problems that make eating well difficult for me. I had hoped that perhaps being able to get good stuff into me in such a way that my poor old belly could actually make use of it would help/save me... I guess maybe I am too late perhaps. Anyway ... sorry for such a long post, I can't find how to make a post except to comment on someone else s post .. did I mention that my brain is apparently leaving me and not giving out a forwarding address? LOL If anyone has any idea what I am doing wrong with this NutriBullet/Blast thing, if I am doing something wrong that is making this not work for me... PLEASE share with me, I can't promise to understand, but sometimes if I reread something a few hundred times I might sometimes figure it out..lol God Bless and Keep You Thanks Jaci
Thank you for your response. I may have already read them but with my brain it never hurts to reread....and repeat... lol I do have to budget myself on being online because I only have around 1-2 gig of data to play with each month, so sometimes I find myself rushing through things if they don't immediately make sense to my fog in cased brain...lol So I will definitely have a look at those links. Again...Thank You!!

Hi Jaci! Don't give up! Remember, that though you're drinking all natural whole fruits and veggies that are good for you, these foods still have natural sugar! Are you carb counting? Let the doctor know your results, and maybe together you can workout which food combinations will be best. When are you having these drinks? Are you having them after a regular meal or instead of? Everything plays a role - heck, you might be eating high-carb food beside the Blasts that are affecting your numbers. It's a learning process, but you can do it!
I am a diabetic. Type 2 and on insulin. I was doing juicing first but that made my BG level to rises high at drinking a glass. But I have been making smoothies, first with just a regular bullet, and recently NB 900. I have been monitoring closely after 2 hours of drinking a smoothie. And I have to say my level are usually 10 to 20 point higher from my starting levels. I have used the recipes here and other places as well as my own. Yes I do like a high fiber smoothies. I do avoid all grains even some that ask for rolled oat's or different grains. In the last 3 weeks since buy a NB 900, gotta admit I have been feeling great, excellent blood work etc....
