Hello everyone... so glad to have found you! I've been using the NutriBullet for approx 1 month now.... I purchased it in hopes of a miracle for my dysfunctional thyroid (praying for weight loss, energy, a clear mind, etc.). So far, I don't think I'm using the right recipe, because I'm not noticing any difference. Once a day (am), I drink the large cup. I put two handfuls of spinach/spring greens, a few raspberries, a few blueberries, a few blackberries, 1/2 banana, 1 kumquat, tbl spoon of dried goji berries, tbl spoon of chia seeds, tbl spoon of flax seeds, some almonds, pumpkin/sunflower seeds, then fill to the line with organic coconut water. I am someone VERY new to healthy foods. I've lived my whole life with food "phobias" (cannot deal with the textures of fruits and veggies) which is why NB seemed like a gift from above. I don't have a sweet tooth, so I never enjoyed fruit at all. I am able to tolerate this drink. Any thoughts on what I'm doing, perhaps the wrong recipe? Something worked better for you?
Christine, In addition to the wonderful suggestions that Wally gave, I'd like to suggest keeping track of the calories in your NutriBlasts. Use a site like myfitnesspal.com or http://caloriecount.about.com/cc/recipe_analysis.php
to determine the total calories in your Bast or some of your other meals. You can then determine how this fits into your total daily calorie allotment. Curious what that might be? You can find out here: http://www.viveforlife.com/nutrition-2/bmi/
I often find myself getting carried away trying to fit in so many amazing healthful foods, that by the time I'm done I have a 500 calorie NutriBlast. While it is all healthy ingredients, those calories still matter.
