NuGo Fan of the Month: Niki W.
Niki was diabetic, had high blood pressure, borderline high cholesterol, and wasn't even 40 years old. She decided to turn her life around before she turned 40, and that is exactly what she did! Niki started a serious weight loss journey, and has lost 80 pounds in 2018. She enjoys the low impact workouts of walking and swimming, which are great for getting fit and bone health. Niki explained how NuGo Slim is her favorite protein bar for weight loss.
“For my weight loss plan, I need low sugar (5 grams or less per serving), high protein (15 grams or more per serving), free of maltitol and artificial sweeteners, and no whey. Vegan NuGo Slim is a large part in how I get my daily protein intake, plus they're so delicious, I feel like I'm getting a treat! NuGo Slim is all the pleasure of dessert or a treat without the guilt, and is packed with all sorts of good stuff. I especially love NuGo, as I can't tolerate maltitol, or other harmful artificial sweeteners, and NuGo has none of that!”
Niki’s favorite flavors are NuGo Slim Crunchy Peanut Butter and Toasted Coconut. She eats seven NuGo bars per week. She eats one every morning for breakfast, and it keeps her going until lunch. Niki described her exhaustive search to find a low sugar protein bar to meet her needs and how happy she is to have found NuGo Slim!
“I had literally searched, researched and tasted almost every protein bar on this planet. I was getting discouraged and feeling hopeless. I have an allergy to maltitol and artificial sweeteners, and an intolerance to whey, and every protein bar I had tried contained these things. If it was vegan, it had maltitol. If it didn't have maltitol, it had whey, or it was too high in sugar, or too low in protein. It was a nightmare! I tried a couple without whey or maltitol with low sugar, and they were horrible and disgusting. I was ready to give up. Finally upon researching, I found NuGo Slim, and told myself, I'll try this one last bar, and if it doesn't work for me, or taste good, I guess I'm just out of luck and options. To my joy and surprise, it tasted amazing, and had none of the things I couldn't tolerate.”
Niki has been a nurse for 12 years in an Internal Medicine Clinic. It is her passion and calling in life. She recommends NuGo Slim to her patients, family, and friends. She has been with the love of her life, her high school sweetheart for 24 years, married for 22 of them. She has two kids and two grandkids. Niki said, “I have a very blessed life, and feel so lucky every day!”
