Hello everyone. I am 29 and fresh in the military.(over a year) I got injured, and had surgury on my leg. I have been injured for about 9 months and since then I put on 20 pounds. I am limited in the exercises I can do. So I figured I would try the Nutribullet after one of my supervisors who is using it reccommended it. I weigh 205 at 5'11. I am looking to be 185 and lean with low body fat. Any suggestions you could make I would truly appreciate. So far I want to have 3 NB a day, and in between have maybe peanut butter and preservatives sandwiches, nuts, egg sandwiches. But I keep hearing about a minimum calorie intake to keep your metabolism up. How do you really calculate that while blending? 

Thank you.

Actually it sounds like you will be eating way too much...particularly if you want to lose weight. Try the NB 2X/day and some nuts for the third meal and I bet you will lose those twenty packed-on pounds in a month. Good luck and best wishes!

You may be going over your daily caloric needs, especially if you are no longer able to exercise like you once did. Check out these tips from myself and Wally for weight loss and then we can go from there :) http://www.nutriliving.com/blog/why-you-arent-seeing-weight-loss-results-scale http://www.nutriliving.com/blog/frustrated-your-weight-loss-what-you-could-be-doing-wrong
