Hi!! My name is Nona.  I will be 79 years young next month.  I acquired my Nutribullet July 15th.  I started by replacing my breakfast with a tall nutriblast in the morning.  I did that for two weeks but have had to back off.  I think I did to much too fast.  Everytime I have tried a new weight loss program or drastically change my diet, I feel the effects after about 2 weeks.  My kids tell me I should have maybe started off with a nutriblast every other day til I got used to it or may not start with the big cup everyday, instead, maybe start with the smart cup everyday.  I am a diabetic who also has congestive heart failure so I know the nutriblasts will help me improve my health through weight loss and increased nutrients.  I just have to figure out the right balance. 

What do other "mature" diabetics say about using the Nutribullet?

Sounds like you have very smart children! When starting a new routine it is best to make slow changes. I think using the short cup may be best for you while you explore what ingredients and flavors you like. When you consume blended drinks you are increasing your fiber intake and that can be a lot to handle all at once. Also, if you are using a lot of fruit, that may be causing some stress on your body, try following this outline when constructing Blasts: 1/2 veggies, 1/3 low glycemic fruits like peaches, apricots, cherries, berries, apples, pears, grapefruit and figs, 1-2 superfoods like ginger, spirulina, nuts, seeds, turmeric, and using unsweetened almond milk or water as your base.
