Hello all- not sure if anyone else is having this issue!

i received my nb in December and started it right after Xmas and to this day- I've gained 27 lbs

and I don't know what the issue is!

this is my normal week 

 

3 days a week I work out- 20 minutes of treadmill - elliptical and recombent bike also during the week I push our lawn which takes 45 minutes 

and over the weekend and sometimes on Fri and Sat and Sunday bike between 15-25 miles per day ...

I feel that I should have loss versus gain???

It is really important to look at your total calorie intake. If you have maintained your normal eating patterns and have added in 1 NutriBlast a day without decreasing what you eat normally, then weight gain may occur. Most people tend to eat less when they include a daily Blast, decreasing their overall calorie consumption. Additionally when people begin to exercise, they tend to overeat. They feel hungry and overestimate the number of calories they need to re-fuel after a workout. Typically you do not have to increase calorie intake for exercise <45 minutes if you are trying to lose weight. I would suggest tracking your calorie intake over the course of a couple days to see how many calories you are consuming. This will give you some insight into why you have gained the weight vs. lost it. I like www.myfitnesspal.com for easy to use food dairy logs.
Thank you! Rob and Sarah. IThank you! Rob and Sarah. I will watch on the calorie from now on.
Thanks Sarah. What should be a normal calorie intake for the day? Im 45 and now at 245. Rob

You can get a good idea of your daily caloric needs using this calculator here. Remember this is just a general calculator - there may be variations depending on current health and goals. http://www.acefitness.org/acefit/healthy_living_tools_content.aspx?id=4
I've had my nb for about 2 weeks and have tried several recipes and like most of them. I've gained about 5 lbs but it is not the fault of the nb. After my initial shocking discovery that my cravings went away I stalled on the nb and did a rebound junk food frenzy. Coming to my senses now... durrrrrr. I have stocked up on seasonings which I found I was missing with the blasts and I think I'll do fine minus the junk food now. *hint* Balsamic vinegar makes a wonderful additive to the veggie blasts and I also purchased some dry packets of salad dressing/dip mixes. Also picked up some Taco seasoning in a spice bottle and some chicken and beef flavoring. I expect the soups to be much more interesting!
If you are working out regularly, some of the weight gain could be, muscle weight.
I just posted this elsewhere, but after reading your issue I thought it might come in useful for you: I read an article on here because I was a little concerned about the level of sugar I could be consuming with each blast. I would suggest reading it as it does give valuable insight into the types of fruit that are low GI and contain less sugar and also some guidance into the types of veg that mix well. One of the main point's is that a blast used as a meal replacement is more beneficial because if you had a few on top of your normal calorie intake then there is a chance you could gain weight from the additional calories. Or just up your exercise with the increased energy like I am doing! This article will give you peace of mind: https://www.nutriliving.com/blog/will-too-much-fruit-make-me-fat
