It was Christmas 2015. I had made it through my most hated tasks: shopping and gift wrapping for this holiday season. Both of those tasks were so strenuous on me; walking through stores and malls was exhausting and I was always so slow that I held everyone up which lead to me feeling humiliated and awkward all the time. Wrapping required either sitting on the floor uncomfortable or trying to make room on my kitchen table. I couldn’t physically sit on the floor and wrap gifts without pain.
December 24th rolled around, and I was hanging out at our annual Christmas Eve party with my family and extended family. I remember seeing my aunt take out her camera and instantly I stressed. I knew she’d upload every single one of the photos to social media, and I hated photos of myself. I instantly covered my face, or made ridiculous faces just to ruin the photos in hopes that they’d never make it online. I went home that night and opted out of following my sister to her in-laws.
I cried myself to sleep and decided that it was time to change. I was tired of missing out on family photos, tired of hiding, tired of regretting the things I didn’t do and the things I wouldn’t do because of my weight. I was depressed. I hated going out in public, I was always tired, and it was a struggle to keep up to my sister’s children. This is where my WHY comes in. I wanted to be happy. I couldn't remember the last time I was really and truly happy with who I was because of my weight.
July 2015 vs October 2017
Soon after, in January of 2016, one of my best friends told me about Nutracelle and said, “You have to try it!” I won’t lie to you: I was hesitant. My hesitation stemmed from the horror stories I’d heard of how gross protein shakes were. I was not looking forward to trying it. I visited her one day around 5pm with an audibly hungry tummy. As per my usual habit, I hadn’t eaten all day. She promptly made me a shake with 2 scoops of Vanilla Cream Nutralean and handed it to me with a smile. I was sold on my first sip, but it just got better after that! It was like drinking vanilla ice cream, and I finished the shake in two minutes flat. The part that really solidified my loyalty to Nutracelle was noticing that within 10-15 minutes my stomach had stopped rumbling and I was FULL! I felt a little twinge of hope that day. My heart told me that this was it; this was the answer I so desperately needed.
I knew I was sold, but because of my financial situation I didn't want to dive right in. I went home and did my research: not only was it made RIGHT HERE in PEI but it was the only protein on the market that I could find with fiber. Of course back then I didn't understand prebiotic fiber the way I do now, but I knew that it was a good sign for Nutracelle if they're the only ones with it. On top of that, I knew it was incredibly delicious, and filling. My girl told me about the cooking/baking options, but I'm not much of a cook/baker so that didn't appeal to me. NOW it sure does, though! I cook and bake Nutracelle recipes all the time and I love that I don't have to give the "bad" food up, I just make it healthy with my Nutralean!
I signed up within a week and haven’t regret it yet.
March 2016 vs November 2017
As with any journey, there have been struggles.Find me a weight loss journey that is effortless and I will find you a unicorn. No, seriously. Regardless of what route you take, weight loss is hard. Focusing on your health is hard. It's 100% worth it, but it's really hard.
Christmas 2015 vs October 2017
I wish I could sit down with every person who wants to lose weight and tell them my story, one-on-one. I wish I could tell them that they don’t have to struggle every day. They don’t have to feel like it’s hopeless and it doesn’t have to be so hard. Nutracelle saved my life, and it can save yours too. I’ve never followed an easier plan and I’m NEVER hungry! I get to eat all of the things I love without having to feel deprived, and I'm still losing weight. Just the other night I had protein ice cream. Healthy, filling, ice cream, can you imagine how that feels? To eat ice cream and still lose weight.
Today as I sit here and write this I’m wearing a size 22 jean and thinking I need to go down to a size 20. This time a year and a half ago I was wearing a size 32 pants (and they were tight).
If I can do it you can, too. Keep an eye out for more posts from me! And of course if you ever need anything - whether you're a customer or not, you can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I'm always here, you are not alone.

Love this flavor! Definitely appeals to my sweet tooth!
When I opened the bag I couldn't believe how GOOD it smells! It really smells just like fresh picked strawberries. And there are REAL Strawberry flecks in it!!! I watched Melanie's webinar and she said there were dried real strawberries in it, but I didn't realize she meant actual strawberries in it!! omg! I was kind of worried that it would taste like that nestle strawberry milk syrup but it doesn't - it just tastes like you are eating real strawberries. I love that it's not too sweet too. Anyway, if you are thinking about trying it and you like strawberries, you will love this one! I'm changing my monthly order now to make sure I get a bag every month along with the natural I use in everything I eat. I've lost about 7 pounds in the last two months and I just fit back into my favourite jeans again so I'm pumped to get to keep the weight off with strawberry now too! Thank you Nutracelle (and Melanie and Tracy!)
I absolutely love my new cookbook! Such a great selection of recipes and so far every single one I've made is fantastic! Thank you Melanie
The old nutralean was so good and the new blend is even better. Did not thing protein nutralean could get better man it’s better!! And my 2 & 1 year old know what I’m drinking and take my drink all the time for themselves. Love It!!!!
Absolutely loving the new formulas. They mix beautifully with water now... and they taste amazing!
I have trouble finding protein powder I don’t hate. I bought the cafe mocha and chocolate dream to try and didn’t expect to love it but I do!!! It was amazing! No weird after taste or texture. It also came with a shaker cup! I love that the ingredients are all things that I know. Plus it’s made in Canada!
Love these protein powders. Love the recipes...easy and quick!!!
So happy with my product. It’s a great product for anyone who’s on the go and always busy. I can rest easy knowing I’m getting good nutrients, that also taste yummy!
WOW!!! I’m sipping a Pumpkin Spice Smoothie as I’m typing this review. I received my order of the new formulas today and was excited to try it! I’m so impressed with the smooth, creamy consistency and the ease that it blends! 2 thumbs up from me!!!
This will hands down always be my go-to choice for anything protein related. I am glad it does not even taste like i am having a protein supplement. Since I don't enjoy eating meat often, this is the best alternative!
I love the taste! Even when you mix it with just water it has a creamy taste. You can do so much with the variety of flavours, you can not possibly get bored with Nutracelle!
Absolutely the best shake i have ever tried. Such great flavors... I love it! ☺
Product works when you follow guidelines. Always weighed at Doctor's office
believe it or not i've lost 51 lbs in 9 weeks. 30lbs to go...
My whole family loves Nutralean! Great taste and quick shipping.
Nutracelle products are great! Mixes amazingly! No grittiness like those other whey powders. Naturla Nutralean prebiotic protein for baking works awesome to make not just baking, but also make shakes and protein balls. The plain flavour allows incorporation into food without tasting that there is protein powder in it! I would recommend this product to those looking for a good quality protein powder!!
I can literally put it everywhere, whatever food i make i can add some natural protein in it, soup, bake goods, protein balls, pizza dough, etc.
Its amazing and so tasty
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!
