This may sound crazy but I think I am doing something wrong. I LOVE my nutribullet but maybe I am gaining weight from it? Is that possible?? My juice generally consists of 50% spinach or Kale then I throw in some celery, carrots, cucumbers an apple, some grapes, some raspberries, half a banana and some almonds or almond butter...

Is this too much sugar? I put on a pair of pants I havent worn and wow they got super tight!

What am I doing wrong??

Thanks!!!!!!

This is a difficult question to answer without a lot of other information. The recipe looks fine. Nuts and seeds although very healthy are calorie dense. But you could be consuming to many calories or not enough. Are you replacing meals or snacks with the NutriBullet smoothies? If you are adding them to your diet instead of replacing a meal or snacks then you have added extra calories to your diet. It's important to know how many calories a day your need. You can get an idea by using our daily calorie counter at my website. http://www.viveforlife.com/nutrition-2/bmi/ Just fill out the info in the calculator and it will give you an estimate. These three (3) areas are necessary for optimal health. Calories 1. The difference between the calories you consume and the calories you burn overtime will either cause weight loss, weight gain or maintenance of weight. Health Status 1. The food choices you make have a direct impact on the status of your health. They either provide nutrients that nourish the body and build health or they deplete your nutritional stores causing destruction to your health overtime. . There is no in between. Eat as close to the vine, root, tree or bush as possible Fitness Potential 1. Your fitness potential is impacted by the types of foods you eat, your genetic background and most importantly by the amount of exercise you engage in weekly. Exercise is critical for weight loss and a healthy body. Make sure you are drinking plenty of fresh pure water everyday. I hope this helps. Healthy Holiday Wishes, Wally Bishop C.N.C.
I'm also having weight gain since blasting. I've been using the large cup after reading there's less hunger, but maybe I'm getting too many calories. I switched to the smaller cup for my p.m. blast & will continue.
It's possible you're putting your own recipe , thus why you're gaining weight? I found that following the recipe book right after I got my Nutribullet helps a great deal. Since I was fairly new to the combinations of fruits and veggies that helps combat certain health issues, I would look for a recipe that best fits what I want to improve or have for a condition i want to blast out of my body. The recipe book and Healing Food Recipes help a great deal. It's a great guidelines for us newbies. If you're a pro with the right food combinations to combat an illness or health issues than you can venture off on your own recipe. IMO.
What else are you doing besides drinking nutriblasts? Are you exercising? Are you eating lean proteins with your meals? It is hard to provide feedback without knowing the answers to these three questions first. I look forward to helping you :)
You always provide some of the best replies Wally! Keep it up! :)
All the help you can give me will be appreciated. I have one question that is bothering me. I am using the NutriBullet daily, having 2 blasts per day, One is 100% veggy in the PM and one is 80% veggie 20 % fruit which replaces a meal. So far counting calories for the 2 drinks would be 200 per drink. Right? Also should I add my walnut, pumpkins seed boosts in only one of my drinks due to the calorie count? I can't seem to get a clear idea of how many calories I am consuming? please help. Linda

Mario there many on-line food journals that you can use to track your calories, fat, protein, sugar, carbohydrates, water etc... I will list a few for you. http://www.fatsecret.com http://www.myfitnesspal.com and http://www.livestrong.com/myplate/ all of these do a great job and will also track how many calories you burn by providing a way to log your exercise also. Remember it is important that you eat enough calories and get enough protein. Macronutrient balance is important. Try to get 50 to 60% of your calories from complex carbohydrates (mostly veggies with limited fruits and limited whole grains) 30 to 35% from healthy fats (nuts, seeds, avocados, dark chocolate, coconut oil, olive oil) and the balance from healthy proteins Happy New Year!

Hi Yoyov, we normally do not get those question. Obviously if you don't eat you can't gain weight. When you eat or blast use avocado, nut butters or nuts and seeds along with soluble rice bran, quinoa and oats. High calorie blast 624 calories 8 ounce regular almond milk 80 calories 1 avocado (remove pit) 260 calories 2 tbs raw cocao 60 calories 1 tbs almond butter 90 calories 1 ounce rice bran 70 calories 1 tbs raw honey or evaporated cane juice 64 calories Healthy wishes Wally Bishop C.N.C.
