Hi I am Maggie! I am on a journey to lose weight and to learn how to live a healthy lifestyle. I suffer from chronic migraines 1-2 times a week. I dont want to have all the health problems that my parents have. I am tired of going to doctors and them telling me I am obese and that it is so easy to lose weight. It is not easy, it takes a lot.  I am 14 years old. I am hoping the nutribullet can help me on my journey

Maggie, you are in the right place! Here are some tips to help decrease migraines, this is a great place to get started and get use to NutriBlasting. First I would take a look at what you are already eating so that you know what may be triggering your migraines. There are some foods more than others that affect people. These include chocolate, citrus fruits, dairy, MSG, aged cheese, alcohol (especially red wine) and sugar substitutes (aspartame). Now on to what you can include in your NutriBlast that may help...fresh ginger and foods high in magnesium (pumpkin seeds, spinach, swiss chard, sesame seeds, sunflower seeds, cashews). Some people find help with the herb feverfew: http://nccam.nih.gov/health/feverfew which can be found at a health food store. Hope it clears up!! Making a goal to Blast at least once a day will give you the most immediate effects. I find its easiest to Blast in the morning for breakfast. Start small and experiment with different fruits and veggies you like. I would recommend trying to build your blast with at least half veggies and then adding some of your favorite fruits. Use water, unsweetened almond milk or coconut water as a liquid for your Blasts. Please let us know if you have any additional questions, we are excited to be involved in your journey!
