Nutribullet for weight loss?

Just purchased one, mostly for health reasons as I had a cancer scare recently that shook me as my diet is rubbish. I also need to lose about 3 stone. Historically my will power has been terrible, hoping to do some filling smoothies and use as meal replacements. Just wondering if anyone has had success this way?

It will still be a case of calories in vs calories expended. If anything, liquidating everything is worse as your body doesn't have to do as much to digest it.

To be honest, I use mine for a protein shake after gym or occasionally a meal replacement (with oats, peanut butter etc). But I generally find that I don't find liquid calories very filling. Like they said - it's still calories in vs calories out.

I bought one last summer. I found that I didn't lose weight because of the sugar in all the fruit. Also it made me hungry, whereas I would be full after eating a banana in its solid form. I stopped and went on a calorie controlled diet, this was when I started losing weight.

Try the Cambridge diet? Like all diet plans people almost always put the weight back. Even the mention upsets people so. Prepare for the negatrons and ignorance

@Beautiful3 I read about that so trying to use mostly veg with a few bits of frozen fruit to sweeten it up. For the breakfast one I add some oats and natural yoghurt, the lunch one is carrot, celery and orange. To both I add 2 tsp of chia seeds and 1tsp of spirulina. Normal evening meal.

@SoleBizzz I am the world's worst dieter, tried and failed them all. I am looking at this more as healthy eating habits, and if I lose weight that's a bonus.

Sounds nice. I love celery.
