What I'm Using : NutriMost


On the NutriMost diet, you are not allowed to put any oils into your body. This also goes for ON your body. I thought I would share what products I have been using lately that have worked for me on this diet.

For shampoo I have been switching between using both the Pantene Aqua Light Shampoo and the Biosilk Silk Therapy Shampoo, both of which I really enjoy and help my thin hair feel not as weighed down and may continue using after the program. For conditioner I use the Pantene Aqua Light Conditioner, which I, again, really enjoy.

For soap, I use Ivory bar soap, which makes my skin feel a tad dry, but I have dry skin to begin with, so it is expected (I forgot to picture it with the others because the bar I am currently using is in the shower so it gets it's own picture). For face cleanser I use the Harmon Face Values version of Cetaphil in Gentle Skin Cleanser. For makeup remover I use Almay Oil Free Gentle Eye Makeup Remover Pads. No lotions are really allowed except oil free so I use Harmon Face Values version of Neutrogena Oil-free Moisturizing Lotion SPF 15 as face moisturizer and Coppertone Oil Free Sunscreen Lotion.
For toothpaste, I have been using Tom's Simply White Fluoride Toothpaste Clean Mint, and loving it! It doesn't leave any residues in your mouth and tastes really nice. As for deodorant I use Crystal Body Deodorant Stick, it's literally a natural mineral salt crystal that you have to wet to use and can last up to a year of daily use!
Now on to makeup, for foundation, Physicians Formula Mineral Wear Loose Powder in Buff Beige. For blush, Physicians Formula Mineral Wear Blush in Rosy Glow. I use my Real Techniques Multitasking Brush to apply both, I cleaned it well with the Pantene shampoo before using (excuse the dirty brush it obviously needs to be cleaned again). They both work well, and it is easier as I have fairly clear skin, it is a nice break for the summer for my skin to breathe free of liquid foundations. For mascara, you are allowed to use any, and I use my favorite at the moment, Prestige Cosmetics Total Intensity Beyond Lashes Dramatic Precision Mascara in Jet Black.

I hope this is helpful if you are starting the program, or looking for some good oil-free, natural product alternatives to use daily!
Today is day 19 and I have lost 14.6 pounds!

NutriMost Weight Loss System


Today is day 14 of my journey with the NutriMost system. I have struggled with my weight for the past 5 or so years, and decided that I needed a major change. I am doing this mother as well. at first we were just looking into it and once the did our body composition scans we decided that it was definitely something we needed to try.
First, a little background to start these updates off; NutriMost is fairly new program which declares itself as "the ultimate fat loss system". It works to fix any hormone imbalances you may have with specially formulated drops. You can find a more in depth and really helpful explanation about the process on almostathirtysomething, a blog I looked at for first impressions of the system and as an amazing, real, daily testimonial for the program.
Now, today at the beginning of day 14 I have lost a total of 13.6 pounds. (In 13 days!!! That's basically a pound a day!!) Sure you miss the foods you can't eat, for me, mainly carbs and cheese, but once you see those numbers going down you become extremely motivated to keep it up and not cheat. I personally am not craving junk like cookies or candy, just more hearty meals but I think that this is just me mentally pining for these items and watching my brother and dad eat them. The only times I'm hungry is when I am sitting around bored. Which was probably the problem in the first place. The toughest part for me is the makeup limitation. You are only allowed to use mineral makeups and mascara and it's killing me (but my skin is thanking me)!
I feel great and am getting used to the routine of the program, not to mention the foods are delicious (my mom and I are huge fans of the lettuce wrapped tacos and buffalo burgers).
This is just the first leg of my journey on the system. Lets hope it gets even better from here and I can go back to college feeling better and more confident than ever!!
