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!!
Comments will be approved before showing up.
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!
