Vitamix blender

I am extremely overweight and looking to buy a Vitamix and use it to make smoothies.
Did anyone use it to lose weight and succeed!

Re: Vitamix blender

It's going to depend what you put in the smoothies. Smoothies can be very high in calories and especially sugar.
I would just follow a more sensible eating plan, macro and calorie count etc, rather than rely on smoothies to lose weight to be honest.

I wouldn’t rely on just smoothies to lose weight. But you can add them into your diet. There’s tons of healthy smoothie recipes on Pinterest.

Re: Vitamix blender

Smoothies can be very high in calories depending upon the ingredients.

I do WW and they count as points, but if I eat the vegetables and fruits instead, they don't have points.
It has to do with how your body processes - it does't have to work so hard to break down a liquid you drink, it has to work harder to break down an apple you chew.

The Vitamix is an awesome machine we love ours! If you are look f to lose weight just like others said this might have the opposite effect. For example I lost a ton of weight from ulcerative colitis and have a hard time eating...each morning my DH makes me a smoothie and in the past month alone I have gained 3lbs! He puts fruits and yogurt in it and a banana so you have to be careful on what you putting in the smoothie or you’re going to end up drinking a ton of sugar...I would recommend green drinks like spinach/kale carrots and some pineapple. There’s a bunch of drinks you can make to help with weight loss
Good luck :)

The Vitamix and the smoothies aren't what is going to help you lose weight.

You just need to eat less calories than you burn.
