I had never tried a protein shake before Nutracelle.

Crazy, right? But in my mind… they weren’t healthy.  You couldn’t live on shakes, and there was no way your body was healthy when you were replacing meals with a liquid. Evidently, I was wrong (Check out my success story here)! In this post I’m going to take you through my first few days with Nutracelle, before I even received my product, and give you some of the tips and tricks that I learned which lead to my 100 lb weight loss (and counting!).

Waiting for product

One of the questions I receive a lot as the head of Customer Service for Nutracelle is, “What do I do while I wait for my product?”  Our shipping times are fast, but there is typically 3 business days where you’ll be anxiously awaiting the arrival of your first package.  My advice to you is to do what I did during that wait time: read, learn, ask questions.

Nutracelle offers tons of information about not just the product, but the way of life as well.  Use the resources available to you and get yourself ready to commit to your new lifestyle.  I know that sounds daunting, but I promise you that it’s so worth it.  As soon as I placed my first order I knew I wanted to learn the right way to do it.  I’d tried too many other diets and plans to fail again.  This was it; do or die.  In my case, almost literally. I've listed a few great places to start, check 'em out: 

 Videos 

These are my favourite resources to hand out to people whether they're signed up with Nutracelle or not! Tons of incredible information listed below.

  • Protein Treats
    • Melanie hosts her own cooking show that showcases exactly how to make delicious, healthy recipes with your product.  Every single recipe is packed with Nutralean's ideal protein for weight loss and is low in sugar, nut-free and gluten-free. There's everything from shakes, snacks, meals, desserts, and everything in between.  If you have a recipe you LOVE but you know it's not healthy, write us and let us know! Melanie loves health-ifying things and is always looking for inspiration for her next episode of Protein Treats. Be sure to subscribe to the channel so you can stay up to date with all of the new recipes (there's a new one every single week!)

  • This Support Webinar : How We Lose Weight
    • Definitely start here.  I know you're probably thinking, "Uh, duh? I know how. Eat better." But it's so much more than that. Tune in to Melanie's webinar recording where she explains the science behind losing weight.  I'm sure, like myself, you'll have a lightbulb moment where you realize that you've been looking at calories wrong your entire life.

  • What Will You Do With Your Nutracelle
    • It may seem silly to link you to a promotional advertisement for the product, especially seeing as you're ideally already a member if you're reading this... however I LOVE this video.  It really showcases how versatile your product is, and will hopefully give you some ideas of what you can do before your product arrives!

Some of the awesome posts in our group!

Our Nutrafamily is so amazing for so many reasons.  Not only will you see jaw-dropping testimonials, and meet insanely sweet people... but you'll also have a guaranteed support network.  You don't have to do this alone. 

I personally lead an accountability challenge and post every single day.  What better way to stay on track than with a group of like-minded healthy-focused individuals? This group is also an incredible source of information.  Real people asking real questions.  We have moderators and admins set up so that there's almost always (we do sleep sometimes!) someone around to answer.    Join the fun here

Okay, now what?

You've watched the videos, you've read the pages, and you've joined the support group. 
Hopefully right now you are PUMPED and looking forward to getting your own journey started.  But what do you do until your product arrives?
Start making little changes, RIGHT NOW! 

Here are 5 easy steps you can do, even without your Nutracelle.

  1. Drink more water.  Your body will be happiest and healthiest when you're drinking at least 3 litres of water a day. This will be crucial when you start your shakes!
  2. Cut the sugar out. This can mean anything from switching to diet pop (or even just carbonated water), to giving up your junk food.  Forget having a food funeral, throw it out.  You do not need one last bad meal; that's just one last bad meal to lose.  Start right now and commit to a happier, healthier you.
  3. Get more green. I'm not talking about recycling, though that's always a good idea too (#welovetheenvironment). I'm talking about green veggies!  Start incorporating more spinach, asparagus, broccoli, celery, cucumber, (etc.etc.etc.) into your life. 
  4. Start reading labels. A huge part of this journey is going to be reducing your net carbohydrate intake (net carbs = carbs minus fiber). 
  5. Begin tracking your food. The biggest learning curve in my journey so far was learning what had too many carbs, and what didn't.  I was surprised to find things like bananas full of sugar, though in retrospect I shouldn't have been surprised. I loved anything sugary and sweet. Tracking using our Nutrafit App will help you nail down your current carb intake, and will make it less of an adjustment to lower that for optimal weight loss. 

Stay tuned for my next blog post, featuring my FIRST two weeks with my Nutracelle! I'll be sharing my triumphs, fails, and lessons learned.  Thanks for reading.
