Vitamix- get one and don't look back

For all you guys who want to get in shape, make some sacrifices and buy one of these- you won't regret it. A healthy and balanced diet is more important than exercise. However, you still need the exercise.

For those who wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength. They will soar on wings as eagles..

Re: Vitamix- get one and don't look back

I don't see how making (and presumably drinking) pina colada's is going to make me any healthier!

Seriously though, I love a smoothy now and then for sure, but you still have to be careful. It's real easy to start dropping more stuff in there and end up with a calorie dense milkshake instead of what you were really after. Just a word of caution....derived from experience.

You really under estimated the ramifications of the boondoggle you have just perpetrated!

Re: Vitamix- get one and don't look back

So the key to getting in shape is a $400 blender?

Re: Vitamix- get one and don't look back

guys, I'm not talking about simple smoothies, and my statement sure didn't imply that a blender was the key to getting in shape. However, there are many people that need tools in their arsenal that make it more convenient and enjoyable to add fruits, veggies, and other nutrient dense foods. Go ahead and laugh but I promise you I know what I am talking about. Proper planning and awareness of what foods you are using can't lead to anything but success when using this product. As with anything that relates to eating and weight loss/maintenance, you have to always be conscious of the caloric value of each and every food item you eat, whether you are throwing it in a pan, crock pot, or a blender.

THe key to getting in shape is a nutrient rich diet that is executed by regular and consistent eating habits that are balanced and varied, combined with regular exercise. Lets face it, the majority of people aren't doing this.

I have a nutrabullet to increase fruit consumption mixing them with blue berries. How is yours on Vegies? With the Nutrabullet they are too gritty.

Think before you share your thoughts!!!

It works perfect with veggies...I put whole soybean, carrots, spinach, kale, peas, and so on in my drinks and it breaks them all down very well.

Re: Vitamix- get one and don't look back

My wife has one of these, uses it every day. Worth every penny, and the green drinks she makes aren't bad either. Good way to get the veg in.

Don't Tread On Me is what it says and I'll take that to my grave.
