Vitamix Blender

For anyone that's trying to get in shape, do yourself a favor and buy a Vitamix blender. I was on the fence for a while ($400 for a blender, what?!), but finally took the plunge when I found one on Craigslist for $200 with 6 years of warranty left. This sucker powers through anything I can throw at it and makes some great smoothies (among other things). If I wasn't on a diet, I'm sure it would make some great frozen alcoholic drinks or milkshakes too. I've lost 10 pounds in the past week just drinking one green smoothie a day and eating 1200-1800 calories. Highly recommended.

High performance blenders from Vitamix Corporation.

I have heard that a VitaMix can do everything imaginable and then a little bit more. Maybe someday.

Easier to drink a smoothie than eat 5 pieces of fruit and vegetables at the same time.

And besides, cave men all had blenders, so it is what we are genetically adapted to.
