I’m a total skeptic when it comes to these ‘loose a stone in a week’ diets where you have to live off one milkshake a day and you walk around like a giant ball of hunger. Juice plus and slim fast are the two that really make me raise an eye brow. Sure maybe they do make you loose weight but only through pretty much starving yourself and it’s only going to ever be short term. You’ll either get so hungry you eat on top of the shakes and put weight on or you’ll put it all back on after the diet because your body isn’t ready for the transition back onto food and old habits creep up.
I won’t lie I was a little skeptical of the Nutribody two week starter pack as I knew shakes were involved but I did my research and learnt what the diet was and what it was about and I decided I really wanted to give it a try as it sounded like a brilliant way to get my diet kick started and my healthy eating on track.
With the two-week starter pack (£24.99) you get the following:
- two packs of sculpting whey (enough for the fourteen days)
- shaker bottle
- recipe book
- weight loss hand book
- hunger fix tablets
So, abit about the diet. You don’t actually use the shakes as a meal replacement you can do if you want a bigger boost of a weight loss but you should replace lunch or dinner with a shake and still make sure your eating a solid breakfast. You use the shake as a snack replacement so you use the little scoop to measure out the powder, add milk or water to the bottle and give it a good shake and your good to go!
If you want to be fancy you can make it into a smoothie and add fruit and veg, there are so many recipes in the book you are given. You don’t just get shake recipes though you get healthy nutritious recipes and it’s meals you actually want to eat and food that won’t be totally alien to you like some cookbooks!
You take the multivitamins once a day just like you would any other vitamin and they just make sure your body is getting a good amount of nutrients to your system.
I was a little worried I was going to be hungry on this diet but I really wasn’t and the hunger fix tablets came in with really good use as you take them 15 minutes – 1 hour before a meal with 1-2 glasses of water. The water is really important to drink with the tablet to make sure they work properly! They really helped cut out any junk food cravings I got because they gave me a full feeling!
There is no weird taste to the shakes and they honestly are really nice. I chose one vanilla and one chocolate because I wasn’t sure which one I’d prefer! I can confirm that the vanilla was my favourite, it tasted like milky bar! But the chocolate was yummy too and tasted like real chocolate none of this fake tasting stuff!
I really like this brands ethos and it’s suitable for vegetarians, suitable for diabetics, 100% safe and natural and there are no side effects of any of their products. I really love what this diet is about and it really did kick start the weight loss for me. As someone who looses weight really slowly diets can be frustrating and I’d soon turn back to comfort eating but this has helped me kick it off with a bang. Not only that, I feel better and happier in general, I wake up better in the morning and my skin is clearer! It’s really had many benefits to me!
It’s all good and well me telling you about the diet but what’s the point of all of this if you can’t see the evidence? I decided to include some before and afters which took quite alot of courage for me to do, I’m very body conscious and quite uncomfortable with my body and I never realised until I saw these photos how awful my posture is so please excuse that haha! I’ll include my before and after weight loss and inches after the photos too!
I’m not sure about you guys but when I look at the above photos I think most of my weight loss has been to my back fat bits and my tummy. It’s totally changed the shape of my belly. It’s flatter and less of a ‘I look 9 months pregnant’ look haha! I didn’t have much of a loss on my legs which I’m not surprised by I really struggle to loose any weight on my legs. I have quite fatty thighs but my calfs are solid and muscley which I hate because it gives them a weird shape hahah but what can you do! I’m really please with the results especially in only 14 days!
Before starting Nutribuddy: 14 stone 6
After 14 days on Nutribuddy: 13 stone 13
So a total of 7 lb loss in 14 days I think is very impressive considering I don’t usually loose any weight until after a month on a diet!
I also lost a total of 12 inches mostly from my stomach and arms but a few inches from my thighs too!
I’m really pleased with how well Nutribuddy has worked with me, I think they are a fantastic brand and they promote all the right things for a safe and healthy weight loss! I am no longer a skeptic of this brand, im so pleased!
