You drink the entire Tall cup.
I'm about to start Phase One and I have a few questions. I'm wondering where to add in dairy? Can I add non-fat cottage cheese or unsweetened yogurt to my morning snack? I do plan on using soy milk instead of water with my breakfast nutriblast. It says cut back to 6-8 servings/week of meat, cheese, and dairy. What does 6-8 servings mean? Should I not eat 4 oz. of meat at dinner every night?

They are a good 55 mm (2 1/2") from the top of the cups while the illustration on page 38 of the guide book shows the "MAX" line much closer to the top of the cup. I ask because some recipes call for 2 cups of greens, three whole chopped fruits and a cup of blueberries. There is no way to get all those ingredients in without filling the cup. The two cups of chopped greens alone fill my tall cup to within 15 mm (1/2") of the "MAX" line. Also, the page 38 illustration does show that 2 cups of greens = 1 serving. When I made my first Nutriblast this morning, I was only able to pack in 1 cup of greens in the tall cup to stay within the 50% greens to 50% fruit formula. I'd appreciate any help/clarification you can provide.
Sorry for the confusion :( Some recipes provide too much and will need some adjusting. Use the recipe as a guide and put in what fits. The foods can go slightly above the max line, but be sure the liquid does not. In addition, technically, one cup of leafy greens counts as a serving! check out this link for portion sizes: http://www.choosemyplate.gov/food-groups/vegetables.html#

The Transformation Plan focuses on a more plant-based diet. We suggest focusing on Blasting whole foods and limiting animal proteins. Therefore, dairy, processed and red meats are not encouraged. Check out this article here on dairy posted by Wally: http://www.nutriliving.com/blog/dairy-good-body A serving of meat is usually 3-4oz so you can build that into your daily meal plan as you see fit. Several research studies show that by consuming more plant-based meals, overall health may improve and there is less risk for certain diseases as well as an easier time managing weight.
This the problem when American plans are Anglisied - a lot of Brits do not use measuring cups
I an new to Nutri bullet, the tall glass is that one serving or two?
Hi, It is one serving. HappyHi, It is one serving. Happy Blasting!
