Happy Wednesday everyone!
I'm just going to jump right in here today and talk about “Fear”. You may be thinking “what does fear have to do with weight loss?” Well a few days ago , I was chatting with my friend Kay, and the topic came up. Being overweight for most of my life, I've come to realize that “fear” was my worst enemy on my weight loss journey. Fear of failing but also fear of succeeding.
Let me elaborate.
In my early to mid 20’s , I went on a dietician controlled meal plan. I lost 105 pounds over a period of 2-3 years and managed to keep it off for several more years. Then life happened and I slowly started putting the weight back on. I felt like a complete failure. Thus began the vicious cycle of depression and comfort eating. I was abusing my body with food. In hindsight, I think I was punishing myself with food for being such a failure. Every attempt to lose weight after that was always sabotaged with the fear of failing yet again.
So, now you’re probably wondering about my fear of success. It's a little more complex than fear of failure. I mean, don't we all want to be successful at feeling and looking better through weight loss?
Well, I wore my “fat” like a suit of armour. It padded and protected me my whole life. My fat kept me from having to deal with men and relationships and the broken hearts that go with them. If I were fat and unattractive, maybe I would be safe from sexual assaults and abuse. (Being brutally honest here). I lived in my protective bubble for many years. My fat was my safety net. It was hard to think of letting it go. Success would mean HAVING to let it go. Shedding the weight would make me feel naked and vulnerable again and that was scary!
It took losing the 2 people who loved me unconditionally, my mom and dad, to open my eyes to my destructive lifestyle. Since their passing, I've had a lot of time to soul search. I realized I needed to try and break the cycle of diabetes and heart disease that they suffered with. I finally came face to face with my “demons” that have literally kept me grounded my whole life, a life where I was meant to fly!
It’s all been a rough road back, but one I needed to take. It’s been a journey to an awakening in my soul and a new love for life! I'm not afraid anymore. “I” am in control!
Since starting my new Nutracelle lifestyle, I'm feeling stronger and healthier, both physically and mentally. Nutracelle has given me the tools to move forward and be successful, to be the person I was meant to be. The delicious smoothies, recipes for yummy treats AND meals have been a life changer for me.

I wanted to share some photos of the Chocolate Chip Cookies I made using Vanilla Nutralean. I never feel deprived on this protein. I LOVE that! You can find this recipe in the “More Than Smoothies” cookbook!

I have been in a stall between 208 and 202 for 5 months....in one week of being back on Nutracelle I am now in ONEDERLAND!
The taste and quality of nutracelle is absolutely unparalleled in the protein market. I recommend it to all my friends and family and having been using it daily for almost 2 years now. And still in love!
The Vanilla Cream is a great flavour added to any of my favourite smoothie recipes! Also makes a nice tasting pancake recipe.
Natural Nutralean from Nutracelle is the perfect protein to add to your food!! There is no added taste!! I made a zucchini meat pasta and added 2 scoops of Natural into my meat sauce!! Not only did it give me and my family all the protein we needed for dinner, but it cut back our portion sizes because we felt fuller faster! We have leftovers now for lunches!! I am so happy with my Nutracelle!
The Vanilla Mocha from Nutracelle is to die for!!! If you are like me and need my coffee every morning to function...then this is for you, as it will give you all the energy you need!! It even taste just like something I can get from Tim Horton's but this is good for you to drink every morning!! This is a must for coffee lovers!!!
The Chocolate Dream Protein from Nutracelle is soooo good. Chocolate is my all time favourite snack and with Nutracelle I am able to make these delicious desserts that are actually good for you! This is a must flavour to have!!
Meal plan is realistic and absolutely manageable. My coach checks in post every workout to see if there is any area I struggle in or if maybe the routine was too easy. He is quick at answering any questions I have and is very knowleageable with nutrition and what my body needs to eat and can explain it to me in various ways to make sure I understand as well. I have never worked with someone who is so passionate about fitness and proper nutrition as well as someone who is on top of everything. App is also very user-friendly; super easy to log everything in with a few click so that you dont have to do it urself on paper. Absolutely thrilled to be working with this team to better my fitness life. Highly recommend joining the team!
Nutracelle's Weight Loss kit has made such a huge impact on my life! I was a junk food junky before I found Nutracelle, and now I don't even think about it! It's been months since I've had any kind of junk and I've never felt better! More energy, tons of weight loss, and I've dropped 2 clothing sizes too!! AMAZING!
The weightloss kit has enabled me to wake up each morning knowing that I've got this!! For the first time in my life I've found something that allows me to feel full and satisfied and I can bake and cook with it to curb cravings I have for junky foods! In my first two months I'm down 15 pounds and dropping. Almost everyday there is a decrease on the scale I couldn't be happier!! I'm looking forward to continued success THANK YOU NUTRACELLE!
Nutracelle is the best product I have ever used for protein. All the flavours are fantastic, can't taste the protein. Since I started to take Nutracelle I have consistent energy throughout the day, it keeps me full and satisfied. My recovery from my workouts and running is fantastic. Recommend this product to anyone wanting to lose weight, athletes or to increase your protein intake daily.
Shakes are amazing. I just mix them with (sugar-free) milk and have no problem drinking them. Like at all! I even love the chocolate. I never ever love chocolate protein shakes haha
This Whey protein powder is the most amazing and the most delicious that I have ever tasted.....with it having 30 grams of protein and 10 grams of prebiotic fiber in one serving, not many meals have that so a great way to get that into your diet.....It mixes very well with no clumping and doesn't have the chalky after taste. I find that is is very easy on my stomach as I am lactose intolerant and I have no issues what so ever, it has actually helped with my stomach issues....Love that it mixes very well with just water! I also Love that it is so versatile that I am not just limited to the shakes, that I can use it in my baking and cooking . If I could give it 10 Stars I would.
I have been on nutracelle since January 2017 and absolutely love it!
I'm losing weight and inches, I have so much more energy and it makes me happy! Nutracelle is giving me my life back! #ilovenutracelle
Nutracelle has been the one product that has kept me on track with my weight loss journey. So easy to incorporate into my daily routine and it tastes amazing! Almost all of my immediate family all use and love Nutracelle too!
It tastes amazing & reduces cravings! I'm breastfeeding and was finding my cravings worse than when I was pregnant. I needed something to eat with my meals to help me stay full, be nutritious and curb cravings. This is it!
