This week marks week 12 of using Nutracelle! I’ve been seeing so many positive changes, especially the last few weeks. To date, I’ve lost 24 pounds and I’m hoping to break the 25-pound mark in the coming week. Some of the positive changes I’ve noticed: my legs are slimming out; those pesky inner thigh bulges are slowly disappearing. You know the ones? Those fat pockets that attach themselves to your inner thigh around the knee area. Mine are slowly disappearing! My hips and backside are starting to slim out a bit too. I monitor these changes after I get out of the bath or shower, I can feel the changes in my body as I’m drying off.
When I see my face in the mirror I can see one less chin and my jawline is narrowing a little as well. Good-bye Ben’s jowls! (Ben was my dad, bless his heart).
Although my weight loss has slowed down a bit now, I’ve been walking and exercising a bit more lately and I truly think it's what’s making the biggest difference in my body. I can bend so much easier and my movements feel more fluid, plus… as strange as it sounds, I feel taller. My hair is shinier. I’m starting to like my body a bit more these days.
The most amazing change I’m seeing is how my hands and feet are healing. I have skin psoriasis as well as the arthritis that goes along with it. I’ve been taking Humira injections now for almost 2 years and it has helped a little.
I remember the day my first shipment of Nutracelle arrived by courier. My hands were so sore, the skin on my fingers was cracked and bleeding. I couldn’t even pick up a pen to write my own name. I had to carry the box with the palms of both hands. It felt like I had multiple paper cuts on all my fingers. I had been reading up on things that aggravate psoriasis and eczema and the one thing that stood out the most was gluten. I was SO excited to try Nutracelle because I knew it was gluten free and I was hopeful that it might help my hands and feet.
It's 12 weeks later and I’m thrilled to say that my hands are 99% healed! (Check my recent video on our NutraTalk Facebook group to see my hands!) My feet are responding quite well too. Although not quite as healed as my hands, they are about 90% better than they were! I started noticing a difference after a few weeks on Nutracelle and this is the longest stretch of healing I’ve had in several years.
Another thing I’ve noticed lately is how soft my skin is feeling all over. The "goose flesh" on my arm and legs, an indicator of gluten sensitivity, is less noticeable too. You have no idea how huge that is for me. I am so grateful.
Last January I was diagnosed with diabetes. I was not surprised in the least as it runs on both sides of my family. I’ve seen, first hand, the medical issues that arise from it. The heart disease risk, and the kidney disease risk caused by diabetes medications. I was determined to try and break the cycle and get off the pills if possible. My doctor assured me that with diet and exercise I had a good chance of reversing my diabetes, so I knew I had to try. Since Nutracelle has no added sugar, I felt it would be helpful in getting my sugars under control. Nutracelle couldn’t have crossed my path at a better time. After my first month, my sugars dropped from 8.1 down to 7.5 according to my lab results. I will have more blood work done around mid September and I’m hoping for another good report. I want to be off these pills within the next 12 months.
Although the physical improvements have been awesome, how I’ve been feeling mentally and emotionally has been nothing short of amazing! Losing weight and improving my gut health with Nutracelle’s prebiotic fiber has left me feeling so good on the inside, it can’t help but show on the outside! I’ve always tried to project a positive attitude but since starting this new lifestyle, I’ve been living a much happier and more positive life than I ever thought possible. My confidence level is on the rise and I can finally smile at the woman looking back at me in the mirror. I’ve even stepped outside my comfort zone a time or two lately.
Writing these blogs has been an experience. I’ve never written anything other than a short story in my younger days, and this was a challenge for me. It's something I never would have considered doing 3 months ago, but here I am! Hahaha! Not bad for 3 months hey? To say that I’m excited to see what the next 3 months has in store for me is an understatement and I’ll certainly be looking forward to giving another progress report at that time.
My recipe for this week is one that I made last night to take to a potluck supper at a friend’s house. It was the Hamburger Stew recipe found in the More Than Smoothies recipe book and online at www.nutracelle.com. It reminded me of a dish my mom used to make when we were kids. She called hers Mince Meat Stew. Gosh, we loved that stuff. The Nutracelle hamburger stew is similar in taste but uses much healthier ingredients plus it's so filling and guilt-free! For me, it brought back memories of my mom, a good meal of "comfort food”.
That’s another reason I love Nutracelle, you can make any meal healthier just by adding the Natural Nutralean to a recipe. Ill never be without it! Mom would approve!
Thanks for dropping in again this week everyone, and please stop by again next week!!

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
Easy to take, melt in your mouth, and taste very good.
I have tried many different proteins and ended up giving them away. Nutralean is the only protein that agrees with me Love all the flavors but vanilla is still my favorite.
I have been on Nutracelle shakes for 2 years and have lost 100 lbs - I couldn’t say enough about this fantastic product!!! Absolutely love it!!
These were great little treats to grab and go with.
I've never been great at routinely taking vitamins, they always taste gross and make me feel icky. HOWEVER! The Nutracelle Multivitamins are legitimately delicious and they taste so good I have to stop myself from eating too many! I've taken my vitamins every day this month! My body LOVES them, and I can already see the benefits!
The new gummies are delicious
tasty and easy
I finally found a protein powder that is completely nut free. This product is great! My daughter uses it everyday at college.
I was slightly skeptic that I wouldn't like this as I haven't found a protein powder that I enjoy. It's always too gritty and I can't stomach it, however this one was not the case. It blends smooth and it's so delicious. I'll definitely be buying this again. And look forward to trying some other items out. As a bonus it's from my home province of PEI. Each day I add a scoop of Vanilla to my smoothie which consists of dragon fruit, pineapple, coconut, and a bit of orange juice and it's a delight each time!
I've never been one to take vitamins - as much as I should! However, now that Nutracelle has their sugar-free multivitamins I actually look forward to it! I've been taking these for a week straight already and I LOVE them. They taste like candy, with no chemical flavor AT all.
I love starting my day with a Nutralean shake that tastes great and makes me feel full for hours. My favorite flavor is Chocolate Dream, it is delicious.
I was really impressed with how good the salted caramel tasted and how good the product is for you!! I will be getting this for awhile and looking forward to trying more flavours!!
My son and I are really enjoying the Nutralean. I love the Salted Caramel and Coffee Mocha. Strawberry is his favorite.
Totally delicious and beat part guilt free!!
Love this product, down 12 pounds and feeling great!
Best protein powder ever! Bowels working so much better. So great to get the prebiotic fiber
I like the taste of the Nutrabites! I didn’t at first, plus they arrived all clumped together (but apparently that is rectified ).
Heating them for eight seconds (per bite) in the microwave makes them taste even better.
Love the amazing recipes !
The Nutrabites are very filling and taste delicious! A sweet treat without the guilt.
Nutralean is the best protein powder on the market. The salted caramel is a great addition to the lineup.
I am so happy to finally be able to use a protein powder that I can use in my blender worry free due to my children's food allergies. I haven't purchased any since we found out our kids had food allergies due to the allergen labels on them. Nutracelle, also tastes better than all the one's I've used in the past. It actually does keep me full for hours. Such a great product!
After using this protein powder for a while. I'm feeling better than I have in a very long time. No reflux or upset tummy.Plus the fact it makes it alot easier to get my daily protein in each day. I really love these shakes and the fact I can also add it to things I'm cooking.Thank you so much for everything.Big Hug
They are delicious & satisfying
Very tasty snacks with a good dose of protein. I especially like the mint ones.
The Nutralean is, as always, delicious and super versatile. Highly recommend for anyone wishing to add protein to their diet without the added rubbish that other brands can contain.
I LOVE IT!!! I like the taste and that I can mix it with water or whatever types of milks I like. It mixes up really well no clumps, no yucky after taste. I also plan to cook with it soon.
They were great tasting, really enjoyed them especially the mint chocolate .would like to see better packaging but other than that I would buy them again :)
