Merry Christmas and Season Greetings To All:

Hi my name is Andre Lavictoire and I'm a Nutibullet Newbie and I'm here to Lose Weight and Get Healthy for The New Year !!!

I'm presently taking B12 Shots cause my doctor says the B12 tablets don't absorb in my system, and I also suffer from IBS and I no longer have my gallbladder.

So if you can suggest any good recipes I would be greatly appreciated.

I have one major problem " I DON'T LIKE WATER " what do I use as a replacement?

Hi Fellow Ontarian. GoodHi Fellow Ontarian. Good luck with the weight loss. Just started a few weeks ago myself and lost some weight already. And I never felt that great about myself. I am pretty sure that you will feel the benefit of blasting soon as well. As for the water, maybe you should try to flavour your water with lemon juice and to add some stevia to make it sweeter. Cheers

Hi, Andre! There are a ton of beginner Blast recipes here on NutriLiving to get you started. As for not liking water, you can always use almond milk, which makes your Blast creamier, or coconut water, which lends a sweeter taste. I used to never drink enough water throughout the day, but I find that using water as my liquid base helps me drink a ton more and I don't even notice it's there. Give it a try. You might enjoy it more than you think!

H Hopefully the Dr. helped you with some dietary recommendations post surgery. Most often with a gallbladder removal, you'll need to reduce consumption of high fat foods - spread out fats more evenly throughout the day and maybe limit to about 3-5g/meal (discuss w/ your Dr. or RD). In addition eating high fiber foods is good as well as small, frequent meals vs. a few large ones. Also, avoiding dairy (especially the full fat versions like whole milk, ice cream and cheese) could be helpful with digestion and your IBS symptoms. When Blasting, note that the fiber might be more than you are used to....take it slow and be sure to drink plenty of water (YES, I said water!) to flush it all thru. To make water a bit more palatable, try putting in some cucumber slices or lemon slices or even orange or whatever fruit you like - this infused water is so refreshing and not boring like plain water!
