My decision to start using Nutracelle in April 2016 occurred as a result of several factors. I’d been unhappy with my weight for several years and had been watching the weight creep on as I got older. I watched my mom and other females in my family struggle with losing weight trying different methods such as weight watchers, Herbal Magic and Nutrisystem. They would be successful for a while but eventually, their weight would creep back on. I tried Slim Fast, Green Coffee bean pills, breathing methods, South Beach Diet, and Susan Powder. I read tons of books and articles and tried various recommendations and suggestions. I would make up the charts and create food logs and do the math for healthy weight loss. I counted calories and worked out my macros. I watched the Biggest Loser with skepticism and read success stories with envy. It seemed as though nothing really worked and had resigned myself to the “fact” that this was just a normal part of aging as a female in my family. Every time I made any serious attempt to lose weight through exercise and what I was taught was healthy eating, I would manage to lose a little but it was so hard and so much work!!! I hate cooking and all these diets seemed to require complicated recipes and strange foods I’d never eaten before. I struggled with sticking to a diet either feeling hungry or just deprived of some comfort food. I was already unhappy and food was my happy place. Why would I want to give that up??? Being fat was just my lot in life…or so I believed.
In 2006 I had my beautiful son, in 2009 my gorgeous daughter. In 2011 I lost my mom and I sank into a huge depression and part of me just wanted to die. As I gained weight, more and more of my own clothes became too small so, I started wearing her clothes as she had always been bigger than me. At 39 years of age I was wearing “grandma clothes”. My dad was sick off and on until he died in 2013 and the year following his death was horrendous. I had two little kids, a stressful full-time job and my parent’s estate to deal with. I was fat, lonely, heavy, tired, depressed, stressed out to the max, and just struggled to get through each day. Before my mom died she had been diagnosed with Crone’s or Colitis, they really didn’t know which. They removed her lower intestines a few days before we lost her. She was only 69 years old. I struggled with chronic headaches and upset stomach; I assumed I had IBS but it had never been diagnosed. I was afraid I was headed down the same path as my mom and I too would die young, leaving my children as young adults. I was scared. My kids and husband are also on the heavy side and I thought, this can’t continue, I need to be setting a good example for them. This is not healthy!!! I am not fulfilling my role as a mother and when I feed them garbage foods I’m harming them!!!
A couple of friends posted on Facebook about Nutracelle and the success they were having in losing weight with it. I read these posts with envy and wanted that for myself. One afternoon I was culling out clothes from my closet which I could no longer fit into. I had a bin of size 16 clothes I was hoping I would fit again from the year I got married. I had resigned myself to the fact that I would NEVER fit those clothes again and decided I was going to donate them so I could store the size 18-20 clothes I’d outgrown. I was thinking about my friends, thinking about where I was in life and as I sorted those clothes I became angry. Angry at my mom for leaving me. Angry that I’d let myself get to 245lbs. And mostly angry that I had given up. It was a pivotal moment. Standing in my basement I made a decision. I was going to do whatever I had to do to be the person I knew I was.
I had done some reading and researched Nutracelle and it all made sense to me. I never do anything on a whim. I was cautiously optimistic but had been duped before. I had some inheritance money and in my heart I knew my mom would support my decision to spend some of that money on Nutracelle. Knowing that gave me the confidence to spend that money on myself. But I was still scared it wouldn’t work. I decided, even if it was just the kick start I needed, I had to do something. I was tired of being a sad sack on the couch.
The following week I signed up. I was nervous, excited and so scared because I wanted to have hope but at the same time I was preparing myself for disappointment. I asked my consultant straight out, “Can I really expect to lose fat? My goal is really only 1lb per week…but honestly I’d be happy with one pound a month just to be moving the other direction on the scale.” She replied, “You are about to have such a ‘holy shit’ moment”. I told myself I’d be happy if I just quit GAINING weight…but in the back of my mind I was thinking…I want to lose close to 100lbs. I WANT TO BE A SUCCESS STORY!!!!
I didn’t really know what to expect but as I waited for my product I cut out as many processed carbohydrates, sugars, and simple sugars from my diet as I knew how and started drinking a ton of water. My consultant was wonderful. She brought over samples for me to try and was always there to answer questions and provide recommendations and advice. I tried the samples but as I had never really tried a protein drink before I didn’t really know any different. I had tried to drink an Ensure once and almost gagged but I didn’t even put it in the same category. I thought the Nutracelle tasted good and as long as there was chocolate I was good to go. Since that time I have tried a couple other brands of protein powder and HOLY CRAP!!!! They taste like….CRAP!!!! LOL Thank goodness I have Nutracelle as I would NEVER be able to drink that crap day after day. Nutracelle is so delicious I look forward to it!!! It’s like a treat every day.
Another big deciding factor for me was the versatility of Nutracelle. The fact I can use Nutracelle to bake pizza crust and bread made me feel I wouldn’t have to give up all my favourite foods. I had no idea I could still have those yummy foods so I ran out with recipes in hand to stock up on almond flour, coconut flour, stevia, chia seeds, psyllium husk and ground flax. I had never bought those things before in my life!!! But I was willing to give it a try.
Today I wear a medium or size 12 and weigh 157lbs. I am closing in on my goal weight of 145lbs. But really, if I don’t reach it I’m OK with that. I was able to lose 50lbs without ANY exercise. In January 2017 I started to exercise for half an hour 5 days a week. I lost another 35lbs since then but what I see now is that I am toning up, gaining muscle, and I realize it’s not about the number on the scale, it’s how I feel, and it’s about being healthy, fit and strong. My daughter tells me I look like a man because she can see my muscles and bones. I tell her, “No, I’m a strong woman, and I feel beautiful!!!!” My headaches are rare, my tummy problems are improved, my skin feels amazing, and I am so much happier. I feel like a new person!
If I had not found Nutracelle I’m pretty sure I would still be where I was a year and a half ago; Heavy, tired, depressed, lacking motivation and comforting myself with junk food. Nutracelle is so easy to use and although there have been times I’ve had cravings; it’s been few and far between. With Nutracelle I can make almost everything that I crave, whether it’s pizza, cheesecake, cookies, brownies, bread, buns, or chocolate covered peanut butter balls!!!! Yes, it takes a little effort, but it’s so worth it. I have no intention to ever stop using Nutracelle. I love that I can just mix it into my coffee in the morning and feel confident I’m getting the protein I need. It’s like going back to bad habits when I would skip breakfast and drink coffee all day. Now I can be lazy and lose weight!!!
Nutracelle has been such an amazing game changer for me and I KNOW it really works. I am worth the investment and I plan to be around a long time for my kids. I love how Nutracelle has given me control over my cravings and my eating. I used to feel so out of control, wolfing down food even when I knew I was full. I now feel I have control of my life and my future. I have lost fat but gained so much!!! I’ve gained confidence, pride in my accomplishment, and I feel I am the healthiest I’ve been in years. I wish everyone who struggles with weight would give Nutracelle a try so they too can experience this rejuvenation and feeling of strength and empowerment. I love my Nutracelle!!!
I love this product. Other Whey protein powder upsets my stomach. This doesn’t!
Love this stuff! Love that it keeps the bloat down, it’s a great meal replacer for promoting fat loss. It’s a great way to keep your protein intake up, most of us don’t get enough, and this is a yummy way to make sure you do. I always get the bundles now it’s a great deal! It’s has become part of regular

If you have teens, you can symphatize...they like what they like and are hard to crack to get them trying new things, so I thought! My teen daughter is first year resident away from home, needles to say sometimes I worry about the eating habits she results to. I convinced her to try the SALTED CARAMEL on her last visit at home, and showed her how EASY it is to make, literally add water, shake and go! She loves SALTED CARAMEL ICE CREAM nad belive me I was blown away when she made a remark that this tastes JUST like that. THANK YOU NUTRACELLE, it's one step at a time, but this was a HUGE ONE FOR US!!!
I love the salted Caramel in my coffee .
I mix my strawberry with almond and coconut milk, add a coulpe of extra berries to it and I sweat it tastes like a milk shake and it is actually good for you! The whole family is hooked on it! THe nutra bites are my "not so guily pleasure" treats, love them!
takes no time at all, simple ingredients, LOVE IT! made chocolate bread topped with nut butter and fresh berries. No left over - says a lot!
I’ve made the chicken wings now twice getting my book I just love it. The smoothies are are very delicious
All flavours are sooo good! Cafe Mocha is my Favourite by far though!
healthy and delecious lunch on the go!
I have been using Nutracelle for a few years now. It is by far the best protein I have ever tried! I love how nice and smoothly it mixes and that it tastes great in water.
I have been using Nutracelle products for about 3-4 years and haven't strayed to date. It is by far, without a doubt, the smoothest, most delicious tasting fulfilling protein on the market. We would run out and be lost without it. It is not only a daily part of our diet but in most cases part of our childrens diet. Couldn't be happier with our most resent order. The bites are so convenient and tasty!!!.
Just received my latest order of Vanilla Cream and Coffee Mocha. These two are the top of my favourites list. I ran out and had to order more. Thanks for the quick delivery and the great taste. 👍
I love love love this protein powder.. It mixes sooo well into everything I make. I use the natural a lot & put it in every meal I make
Vanilla Cream is one of my favorite flavours! Water and whipping cream and it tastes like a vanilla milkshake!!
There are few sugar free, gluten free, soy free.... and GREAT TASTING GUMMIE VITAMINS out there. I've got my family to try and everyone's loved them!
More Than Smoothies Cookbook digital download cook book - We tried the chocolate bread last night with the family topping it with some nut butter and raspberries, I guess that tere is no leftover a 5 satr review that speaks for itself! THANK YOU!
NUTRALEAN Prebiotic Protein Powder | Vanilla Cream
Really enjoying the easy to make recipes in the cookbook. Plenty of great ideas and uses with your Nutralean Powders
I'm loving using the Natural Nutralean in recipes and smoothies. These powders are amazing
I’ve never been a big fan of protein powders, most of them made me nauseous and I hated the taste. So I was a bit skeptical waiting in my Nutracelle order. I thought I’d try the salted caramel first and oh my goodness, I loved the taste and actually look forward to having it each morning. I’m already noticing after 2 weeks that my tummy flab is slowly going away!
I ordered Chocolate and Vanilla along eith the 2 flavours of Nutrabites and I’m addicted to it all.
ok, I have tried Strawberry and Chocolate dream, and don't get me wrong they were both really yummy, BUT the Salted Caramel is my ABSOLUTE FAVE! I do share it with my teenage son (sparingly) and my spouse, who both agree it is very decadent and satisfying! Just like a creamy dessert in a shake form. I do find it is very palatable, keeps us full for hours gentle on our gut and super easy to consume even on it's own just mixed with water. I am very greatful and fan for sure!
Already thinking about the Holidays and indulging and I was a bit frightened "to fall of the wagon" with all the temptations the season brings....These bites are perfect to curb that sudden urge to snack on something sinful :) they are perfect size and I fell great about munching on them, guilt free! I don't find them satiating, however as I said just perfect to satisfy my senses when the urge hits!
It took a while for me to choose my next flavour as I am a bit anxious of trying "new flavours" but I must say I am glad I did. So refreshing, easy to blend, add a couple of mushed berries to my shake some plant based milk and oh so yummy!!
I’ve been using nutracelle for about 4+ years now,( not consistently I must confess). I really like the chocolate and mocha espresso. I usually mix 1 scoop of each with 1cup if almond milk & ice & blend well with blender. It is satisfying & filling, (but does give a gassy feeling a few hours later). Symptoms settle once used for awhile😊.
Connie keeps me on track, I don't know what I would do without her! I gained almost 40 pounds back after losing over 125 pounds at my lowest and I was devastated. Connie not only helped me see where I was eating more than I realized, she created a meal plan that is super easy for me to stick to. And because she had weight loss surgery she really knows what works and what doesn't. I had tried a dietitician through my doctor, but they just kept telling me to exercise more and eat more meals and I was getting depressed. Connie showed me how to change my thinking and she keeps me accountable and motivated. She is always there and and I finally feel in control again. THANK YOU CONNIE!!!
I promised myself to include protein at every meal. Not as easy as it sounds! This protein powder tastes great and makes my protein intake easier. I use the coffee mocha with almond milk in my daily coffee. I use the vanilla cream in my smoothies. I have more flavours on the way to try and recently received the cookbook so I am looking forward to trying some new ways to use NutraLean.
All I can say is the Chocolate Dream is life, I’ve been eating the Keto way since June and it didn’t take me long to find the monotony of eggs for breakfast every day frustrating. Then my sister gave me a bag of Chocolate Dream and I started to look forward to breakfast. When I joined the gym in August the trainer asked me what my favourite Keto meal was and I said my Chocolate Dream shake from nutracelle, he was quite surprised by my answer, but it’s true sometimes the thought of my delicious shake is just the motivation I need to get out of bed in the morning. I love it.
Great taste, no fuss when it comes to my kids taking them. Thank you!
Dear Nutracelle Team, I can't begin to tell you how many protein powders, drinks, bars etc I have tried over the last couple of years, and none of them stayed in my life permanently...the taste, texture or versatility was always off, so I was left with barely used containers that I had spent quite a bit of money on and was left feeling guilty for not using them, but even that wasn't enough to make me stick to the plan. I have to be honest with you, my first purchase was the Salted Caramel protein powder through Amazon.ca. I came across it just by accident searching for a prebiotic protein powder and viola! I figured what the heck if I can't consume it for what ever reason I'll just use it up baking...WELL, I HAVE TO TELL YOU, I AM HOOKED!!! The taste, texture and what it does to my body, I CAN'T THANK YOU ENOUGH! My Teens LOVE it too which I am sooooo grateful for as well! My next purchase was the Chocolate dream with the same intention, if not f=great on it's own I'll just use it up in my baking or dessert recipes. I find the taste mild so I added some raw cacao powder and a touch of peppermint oil and oh yummmm! Thank you for all the care and research you out into your products, I am one satisfied, returning customer!!!
I bought the Vanilla Cream flavour of Nutralean protein powder and I love it! So creamy, not chalky like some other protein powders I’ve tried. I will definitely be buying more in other flavours.
Nutrabites Protein Balls
