Watching the infomercials for the Nutri-Bullet has really got me thinking. With it, I could make sure we consume the recommended daily intake of fruit and vegetables and help my husband lose weight. I discussed it with my hairdresser, and he swears by it – not the Nutri-Bullet per se, because it is ridiculously expensive, but a cheaper one that does just as well.
Have you tried the Nutri-Bullet or a cheaper alternative? How have you found it? If not, would you like to give it a go? Why or why not?
I bought a cheaper version from Deals Direct. From memory it cost me about $25 plus P & H. I love it. It is quick and easy to make smoothies. If juicing veggies and fruit, it doesn't juice them like a proper juicer - the drink ends up quite thick but then there's no wastage and you are getting the fibre as well. One of my most used appliances.
No - it's far too expensive so a single, non-sporty person, and it doesn't do much else. We all have these 'labour-saving' devices many of which sit in cupboards after the discovery of how how truly fiddly they are to wash & clean!
There is little bench space nowadays in 'open plan' lack of storage & cupboard kitchens for all the New Beaut electronic helpers sold at us?
I had a cheaper version of it. It certainly did what it said it could, but washing up all the small parts and working out where to store it when not in use (the parts take up quite a bit of space) was annoying so I passed it on to a friend in the end.
But, I can not justify spending large amounts of money to be honest.
I have just cut out Bread and sugar in foods.
Eating lots of veg, and the weight is coming off.
I think if you feel it will help, then maybe? I just worrie about food being broken down so much.
I couldn't do it that way, I like my food as is...lol. :)
The one I bought cost $40, a third of the price the one on TV is being sold for. I guess, it's better to have your fruit and veg in juice form than not at all. That's the reason I bought it. Good on you. My husband and I gave up sugar for four months last year, but I found I couldn't give up ice cream and chocolate, so I've just limited my intake.
No I wouldn't try it. Its an easier way to get in the veggies probably, but then not really the natural way. Eating fruits and veggies not only gives fiber for the gut but also the necessary massage and exercise to the teeth and gums
I reckon if I got the other half to sharpen the blades on my blender it would do the same job. To me it just looks like an upside down blender and I don't think I want yet another appliance and the hassle of storage.
