I add cut green peppers and tomato onto my pizza with some garlic salt. It is a diet plan that is low fat and focuses on good carbohydrates rather than no carbohydrates like many other diets. This last time I signed up, I had a weight loss goal of 10 pounds — with this new system I had pretty much hit my goal during the first week. You could say I was a fitness nut cause I never seemed to slow down. I felt the change in taste! I agree that adding spices and herbs to the meals can improve the taste and tailor it to what you like to taste even!
What's New with Nutrisystem for 2018?
I wanted something easy for a change where I didn't have to cook i get so tired of cooking and could still lose weight.
So far I'm thrilled it's working and most food is edible and okay, I have had no issues with my heavy work out schedule or being weak. I eat my small nutrisystem breakfast before going and have the smartcarb and Powerfuel snack when i get back, then lunch an hour later. I want my mother to go on the plan as a way to eat healthier.
She's a senior 82 and won't cook much so eats what ever she can grab from the fridge and it's a very unbalanced diet. After tying it I think it will be awesome for her. To people like " 15 Shirley Says" who said she only lost 3. Imagine if you had stayed with it for 6 months to a year. In 6 moths there is 26 weeks. You lost over a pound a week. You would weight 26lbs less. In a year you would have lost 50 lbs. Just because you don't see a big drop as you can't exercise at the start, sticking with it will make a huge difference.
This was a success story waiting to be written. Try the pick your own food plan which is currently It's not so much when it works and saves you so much time and you won't be going out to eat, stopping at a drive through out of laziness to cook or ordering in food that is very costly.
So far I'm very pleased with the plan and considering ordering it to take to the ski hill with me in the winter where staff accommodation rooms mean a shared fridge and stove which can be difficult to get access and space in.
This would be so nice to keep in a closet! Just need my veggies and fruits in a fridge. I started Nutrisystem from Walmart one week before having foot surgery. I'm about 25lbs overweight and I want to lose some weight and keep myself from gaining any while I recuperate.
The food is fine and fills me up since all I do is sit on my butt all day. I drink a lot of herbal tea and water also. I'm a nurse and also 64 years old so I know if I were just sit around and pig out I would end up fatter,depressed and constipated lol. The food is very doable and full of fiber to help me go. I will not be able to drive for 3months. It is totally up to me to do this right. I know I can and NS I believe will help me do this. Hey Wilson, I get your point. Hey Alan, good counterpoints.
The bottom line is Alan's last paragraph and I can't agree more. In response to Wilson's comment, let's really clear something up. Most Americans spend more per day on feeding their ever expanding bodies with too much junk and additive laden convenience foods.
When you're trying to lose weight, you don't buy liquids to drink. You drink water from your tap because its the best thing to drink. Anything else that comes from the store is packed full of sugar and is just money down the drain and inches on your waist. Yeah, the meals are small.
You're on a freakin' diet and teaching your body to get used to eating smaller meals for heaven's sake! Losing weight is not just about calories. Just read any of the latest articles on news sites and the top diet experts now tell you not all calories are equal.
Its the SUGAR and HFCS you need to eliminate from your diet, Then artificial additives, pesticides which you'll find in most non-organic store food , phyto-estrogens non-organic dairy, meat, grains high GI carbs bread, pasta, cookies, cakes, candy etc The food industry is a scary place. OK, Nutrisystem is not the perfect diet, by any stretch of the imagination, I'll grant you. But it's a good way to get started for many folks that don't want to go counting calories or see a dietitian.
Their small, nutritionally balanced meals teach your body to get used to eating smaller meals and to stop eating junk. The next step is up to the individual to carry that on once the finish the diet. By watching what they eat and drink—and reading the labels on all food produce they buy to avoid the worst offending ingredients.
I agree you can lose weight without doing any commercial diet program. Common sense is a pretty powerful thing when it's used. A person's body is their responsibility and if they gain weight, its up to them to actively work of getting back in shape. No one else can do that for you! Let's clear up a couple of things and make them perfectly clear: Second, the "meals" are microscopic. Go to any nutrition or calorie count site and plug in Nutrisystem Meals.
When the calories in a meal are in the — range, you're not going to have to chew very long to devour the whole thing. Cut your calories to per day. If you can read and if you can add, then it' simple to do and it's a helleva lot cheaper than Nutrisystem or any other diet program. I actually like the food. Before NS, I would just have a coffee, ladled with creamer for breakfast, eat a nice oversized lunch and probably not eat dinner, but sometimes snack on chips, pretzels, cereal, whatever, while watching TV.
This is teaching me to eat small portions throughout the day. I have always worked really hard to try to be thin, but, have gained 10 lbs over the past few months that will NOT come off. So, I'm using this as a kick-starter to making smarter choices. I look at our metabolism as a fire burning. If you put one big log on a fire that is almost burned out, it will choke it out; however, if you put kindling, or a few small twigs on it, it will build it back up. Think of your metabolism in the same way.
If you eat smaller meals, more frequently, you are feeding your metabolism, but those big meals that restaurants serve and we, in turn, create, at home , those meals will completely stifle your metabolism and leave you feeing tired and lethargic. Keep up the great work everyone. Hey Nellie, good question. As long as you keep eating small portions, keep your daily calorie count to the same as while you're on the diet and do not return to old bad eating habits like eating junk food or foods high in sugar, drinking soda etc you should not gain weight.
This diet is not just made to make you lose weight, it's designed to teach your body to get used to eating less and to teach your brain to be aware of what you're eating all the time — even when you're not dieting. Bottom line is it's all on you from start to finish whether or not you lose weight and keep it off. Only you can choose what you eat and drink. Choose wisely and you'll surprise yourself in a nice way! Hey Candie, it's great to hear you're doing really well—32lbs in 2 months is awesome!
And that you like the diet and you're fired up to maintain it to lose even more is really inspiring. Come back and give us an update sometime soon, please! Had a very serious health issue and in ICU for 5 days. EVERY physician gave me the same comment—loose weight. I have been on many programs before with little success. Was up late one night and saw Marie O who looked super—so this fat boomer decided to give the program a try.
Have been on program for about 2 months or so. Down from to today. I love the food—of course have some faves, but it works for me and hopefully will continue to on my road to loose another 50 pounds.
Hopefully I won't look like a prune but I will certainly be healthier! Hi Kavitha, thank you for your inquiry. This diet program only ships to United States addresses at present. I'm sorry it is not available internationally but I believe the additional shipping costs would make it very expensive and therefore not attractive to dieters in other countries around the world.
If I may offer some advice: I know that it can take some will power to follow a stricter eating regime, but when you firmly decide for yourself that you will do it because you want to do it, you can surprise yourself at what you are capable of! I live in Kuwait. How do I get this product would like to know how much it cost to loose 20kg. Hey Marilyn, it's great to hear from you that you're off to such a great start. I agree that adding spices and herbs to the meals can improve the taste and tailor it to what you like to taste even!
And yes, yes, yes My husband and I both started this diet, he needs to lose 40 pounds I need to lose ! Our first week he lost 12 pounds and I lost When hungry eat salad is what I tell my husband. He gets more snacks than I do but this to me is a very easy diet to follow. We planted a garden and makes it more fun to grow your own salads! I think the trick is once you lose your weight to keep it off.
But I hope we get to that problem! I talked my husband into doing the diet with me and to tell you the truth, I think it helps him to understand the struggle of sitting next to someone eating foods that you can't have when only one person is on a diet. No matter what you do in life Hey Liz, Great to hear you're getting on with the diet so well, but gaining 7lbs in just over a week sure sounds strange.
My first thought is water retention, which if that's the case could be caused by a sudden change in diet and usually dissipates after several days. It can be caused by increased fiber from the food holding fluid in the digestive tract which is released soon enough as the body gets used to the additional fiber in the diet.
Although it sounds odd, the best way to deal with water retention is to drink MORE water—at least eight or more 8oz glasses per day throughout the day ie not all at once. It helps flush the system and helps with digestion too. If you don't start seeing a drop in weight after another week, my advice is to get in contact with a Nutrisystem counselor and talk it through with them.
They have experts in-house that can help you, so DO make use if that service. You're paying for it as part of the program, after all! Good luck with your progress and I hope things go real well for you. I can say I love it.. I'm on the Diabetic Plan. In the 4 days I've been on the plan I've gained 7 pounds. Please let me know whyyyyyyyyy I gained? Hey Beth, all comments are published, positive or negative as long as they are helpful in some way.
You're doing the right thing in talking to the counselor over any concerns—they're there to help after all! I'd add that you need to drink lots of water every day. Not just for this program, but for your health in any case, because it hydrates you and actually helps with healthy digestion and elimination as well as helping to normalize blood pressure. About 8oz glasses per day is about right.
Good luck and best wishes with your diet for a successful and happy outcome! This will absolutely be a lifesaver for me! I love all these comments and I will be coming back here to read more!
I am on my first week of NS This is my 3rd day. I felt really tired yesterday and chatted to the counselor today who added a couple things for me. I have not cheated at all but my blood pressure is going up some now which has me worried. I saw where the program is under mg Sodium per day which should be ok. I will be talking to them more if this continues to be a problem. This program is helpful to me I am a comfort eater and eat with my computer or TV so I don't even think about how much I eat.
This program thinks for me I am on the woman's basic vegetarian plan and have liked everything so far. I was sent some meat products accidentally in my first shipment but they corrected that quickly and I am being sent other products now. The cost is high Way less expensive than medication, procedures, etc, if your health goes downhill!
Thank you for this review and all of the comments that have followed. I am 85 pounds overweight and grieving the murder of my daughter has led me to 30 pounds of weight gain over the last 7 months. I am hopeful that NS will be the answer that I have been looking for to increase my energy, self control and self confidence. Just started my 6th week of NS, 25 lbs. Now I plan to keep going for 2 more months until our anniversary Cancun vacation. NS has a program that allows me to pick and choose my favorites so I want to enjoy the food I like at smaller portions and learn to snack well.
Hopefully, I'll take better habits with me when I start buying replacement meals and home cooking with a newer portion-controlled mindset. Nutrisystem works for me. At times, I'm fully aware of my increased energy and motivation. Losing the desire to junk snack at night is a huge improvement. It is worth the money to spend a few months eating NS to lose weight and change my eating habits.
The good news is that I still go out times per week to our favorite bars and restaurants. Love a dirty martini, small appetizer, and seafood or salad combo much more than I did the fatty meals that were NOT worth the money!
Hey Gail, don't feel discouraged—since Feb 15 its only just over 3 weeks and at the recommended rate of weight loss at 2lbs per week, you're actually right on track! I know it's easy to get caught up in the big claims by some of the TV ad featured dieters of 30lbs or more, but the reality is those big numbers take several months to achieve in most cases. You could and should double that figure inside of two months if you stick with it and stay determined to succeed!
I started the NS plan on February I haven't added veggies. I don't feel super deprived likely because of my few side trips but I can't help but feel that I should have lost more weight. I should probably add that I am 48 and post menopausal — I do work out most days for min either a treadmill or Beach Body videos and I have three labradors who I walk most days they're not strollers!
Just feeling a little discouraged but I intend to finish out my second month. Hey RockyRose, it's great to hear you're enjoying the diet and having great success with it.
In my experience, the people who always lost the most weight and kept it off are those that stuck stubbornly to their diet plan while politely but firmly ignoring any conflicting "advice" from friends or family. Everyone naturally has an opinion and often its the wrong ones that derail people from their weight goals if they listen to and take them to heart.
It's always the plan that get results when you stick with it, not those opinions! I've been on Nutrisystem for about two weeks, I'm down ten pounds. I love the program and I love that I'm sticking to it. I think the food is really good, there are a few items that I don't like so I just don't order them. I hope I have good results with this program. I think the most important thing is making sure I stick to it.
You should contact NS customer support for these kind of questions as they'll have the most accurate and correct answers rather than take someone else's opinion whether right or wrong. Can you drink coffee on Nutrisystem? When starting with the Turbo shakes, is it strictly shakes for the first week or using shake as 1 or 2 meal replacements?
Hey Lisa, thanks for the update. It's always real great to hear from you because you have such a great, positive attitude and you're proof that a can-do attitude brings success! Just wanted to give an update! As for the meals, I think they taste great, all except 1 wasn't to my liking!
I finished half of it and gave the rest to my unpicky dog! You do have to add in vegetables but that is fine I feel fuller! I absolutely love the turbo shakes and the nutricrush shakes wish I could drink those all day long!
Thanks for having this forum! And good luck to everyone! The Nutrisystem program i think is founded in good ideas. However i have a few complaints. The food is mostly bland and has no real flavor. While portioned well, i still felt like i was lacking something I work out about times a week including playing hockey and it left me hungry. However the biggest and most annoying thing that really got on my nerves was after paying for the first month, i came to the determination that it was too expensive to continue.
I'm sorry but that's completely absured! Yes i got a discounted price Which is the reason i would be charged but that's no excuse. Thanks but no thanks. I'm very upset that they would treat their customers like this Additionally to cancel, i've been on hold And on the phone as i'm typing this waiting to talk to someone for nearly 30 minutes already Are they purposely trying to make it impossible for you to cancel?
Going back to Weight Watchers so i can eat food that tastes like food, and a system that I have had success with in the past. Hey guys, I get it you have differences of opinion and I'm a believer in everyone gets to say their piece.
But unless you really have a genuine grievance with Nutrisystem itself, I don't want to read angry or hateful comments or arguments especially over what you see or don't see on TV. This is my site and while I let a lot of stuff go, I don't want it to turn into a free-for-all mud-throwing match. Any future hateful or angry comments will get deleted. Hey John, congrats on losing 20 lbs by the way.
That's the kinda thing I enjoy hearing about! Congrats to Nick S and Matt G too — that's some great going guys! Wow, Martin you're some kinda troll. If you see so much of Marie's face on the network, man you're watching too much TV! As for me, I'm glad Marie's still doing it for Nutrisystem. God bless her, because it really helped me lose the 20 pounds I needed to lose through my previously bad diet not sitting on my lazy fat butt all day watching TV.
I lost weight and reached a goal. Man, unlike that other guy I'm happy, positive and thankful I found something that worked for me! I have been very pleased with the food personalized my plan selections and the only negative was that I was very gassy and some pretty painful stomach pains for a couple days during my second week. I did experience constipation for the first week and very well could have made a mistake by eating more meals with higher fiber content to combat this which may have created the stomach pain.
I did take GasX which has solved the problem. My advice would be to stay strong, adhere to the plan and drink 8 to 10 16oz bottles of water per day. The results thus far have been amazing and I am well on my way to achieving my goals by the summer.
I've only done the first week and I've already dropped Now I'm a big guy, with a lot of weight to lose, but 13 pounds in one week? They only said I'd lose up to 10 the first month Hey Toni, I get where you're coming from and I say sure, go ahead and eat vegetables. They are super low in calories but high in nutrients that help the weight loss process.
That's as long as they are fresh eaten raw is even better and not out of a can or a packet! As to the hard boiled egg, I'm guessing if you ask Nutrisystem support you CAN and should , they'd say it's outside the plan. But personally, I'm a great believer in natural foods are always better than junk. So if you're going to slip, it's better to do it with an egg instead of a pack of potato chips or a candy bar!
I'm just beginning the Nutrisystem and I love it already. I'm currently on the 4th day of my Turbo 10 but I'm finding it a bit difficult. I had one major question that I couldn't find the answer to anywhere; I think I know what the answer is but I want to confirm it.
While doing the Turbo 10 can I have vegetables and protein when I'm getting hungry? I have been trying to stick whole-heartedly to the Turbo 10 but I have slipped up and had a hard boiled egg considered "powerfuel" and a half a cup of edamame vegetable. Please let me know what you think.
I'd appreciate any advice. Hey Lynette, that's an amazing story, congrats! You're right, it's all about achieving the body size you are meant to be—and can be through getting into the simple habit of right eating and sufficient exercise each day. Just reading these comments and had to put my 2 cents: Keep going girl, you already lost 5 pounds you can lose another 5 and more. Just don't quit and do believe in yourself!
I looked back at your comments and gotta say, your killing it girl woo yeah! Baggy clothes are the coolest by-product of this diet! When I hear folks say they lost this or that pounds, I think to myself, that's cool. That's what we're doing this for. For US not for the bathroom scales! I love to hear people winning with their diet. I finished 3 months on Nutrisystem just before Christmas after I shrunk from a size 18 to a size 10! All that fat was gone baby and my old clothes all looked like they were made for an elephant.
I was so happy I threw a party for my friends to burn my old clothes in the yard and it was so amazing. It cost me all my meager savings to buy new clothes for this new small size body but I'm the happiest girl on my block for sure! Oh yeah, one month later I'm still the same size and weight. I eat only fresh food that tastes great and drink plain water or herbal tea now. No more junk or soda and I feel and look totally amazing!
I am on day Lost 5 lbs first several days and have not lost anything since. Major plateau and very discouraging. I am going to stick with it another month. New delivery should be today. I have stuck to the plan.
Not understanding how I'm not dropping weight. My breakfast used to be calories. Now I don't go over for the entire day for 1 month? Why am I not losing? Hope someone can please answer me. Hi Dr Cook, Thank you so much for your words of encouragement they are appreciated. I posted it twice because I thought the first one wouldn't go through because my email address was wrong! Thanks for posting it! I am on day 4 and no soda at all!
I haven't cheated once and I feel great! I can't wait to see how much weight I have lost at the end of the week! Hey Lisa, great to hear from you that you're starting with such a positive and determined attitude which is sure to get you to where you want to be. I just saw you posted the same comment twice—I published the first one as you can see but the second is a duplicate and the system won't publish it I have safeguards to stop me accidentally publishing duplicate content to this blog.
Anyway, good luck to you too and I wish you success! Hi, Sorry I just realized my email address was wrong when I sent my first reply. This is the correct one! Hi, First let me began by saying I am 45, 5'9 and weigh lbs. I had weight loss surgery 3 years ago where my heaviest I weighed lbs and my lowest lbs. So after the surgery, 3 years later I have gained back a total of 30 lbs. I am addicted to McDonalds Cokes, I buy at least a day!
Needless to say I am tired of being sluggish, overweight, jittery and grumpy! I knew I needed to first stop the soda period! So I did that and on the same day went to Walmart and purchased 2 of the Homestyle packs so I can try it for 10 days. I just started on NS. I thought that I would have total withdrawals from having quit Soda cold turkey on day 1 but I have only had an occasional headache.
I have had gas also but that is ok. I am not hungry at all thanks to eating the 6 small meals and also that my stomach doesn't hold that much anyways. I do want to say that the food is actually very good at least all the ones I have had so far have been! I haven't weighed myself yet because I want to be surprised and weigh at the end of the week.
This is really easy to follow. I haven't exercised at all but I plan on incorporating it into my schedule. Here is to a New Me in ! I am please with the plan so far. I lost 8lbs My first week, but I think a lot was fluid from eating so much bad food before. The first days was the hardest but I like the fact that I don't have to cook it and weigh it and count calories and figure all that out. I do not want to have to do a meal plan, I do not have time for that.
I can make my family a nice dinner and still have the veggies with them and I heat mine up and we can sit all down together without me having to figure out what can I make for them that I can eat. I did the QVC deal and got the plan for less than what it would cost me to do smart ones or lean cuisine.
This is delivered to my door and for an entire month. I don't even have to shop for it. You can not beat that.
The food is not the greatest but what microwave meal is. It is not the worst I have had and I am so excited over this, I feel amazing and look forward to be a long time customer.
I have now lost 8. I love green beans.. I still have 13lbs I am wanting to lose Are you allowed Coffee on Nutrisystem? I use to drink decafe coffee. I did use truvia and skim milk when I used to drink it.. I do not drink any soda at all Just want to lose the lbs..
Thanks for the encouragement, anything that will help me stay on track. Hey Faye, that was a big drop in weight those first 5 days. A possible answer is that much of that could have been excess water weight, because believe it or not when you start to drink lots of water the body actually releases excess stored water.
It all depends on how much water weight you were carrying to begin with as it can vary a lot between people. But in any case, don't feel discouraged. It's early days into diet and your body is just balancing itself out. The pounds will continue to fall more steadily as you continue with the plan. Remember, most expert agree you should expect pounds lost per week on a low calorie diet like Nutrisystem and this is a reasonable average. Stay determined and positive and good luck with achieving your goals.
I started the program and the first 5 days I lost 7. Hey Dolly, I'm so glad you're succeeding so amazingly well and have such a positive attitude toward the program. Yes, I changed the ads since Nutrisystem have started their new promotion for already, so I had to include their new offers in my review so new visitors will get the latest information.
Congrats and keep on keeping on! Hi Dr Cook, I read this review a month ago and signed up for the core womens plan. I can't thank you enough for pointing me at Nutrisystem! I have already lost 14 pounds and ordered my second month. The food is much better than I expected from hearing some of the very negative commenters said about it. I felt a bit hungry the first few days, but I told myself it was my body telling me it was using up excess fat to make me smaller and lighter.
And it really was! After those first few days, I had no hunger issues at all and felt great. Better than great — I have so much energy now that I never had before. I really appreciate the depth of information you provide here and I noticed you changed the ads and some of the info from Fast 5 to Turbo 10 since I last looked in.
That looks real interesting but you know I will stick with my plan because it works for me and that's all I need. Good luck and best wishes to all the others who are on this diet program!
Hey Rebecca, it's always great to hear from folks that are doing this with a positive attitude and real determination to succeed like you guys. All I can say is you're going the right way and just stick with the plan and you'll be wearing even smaller size pants before you know it!
I am one week shy of a month on the program. My fiance and I are doing it together as we have gained weight together over the past two years. We are both in the lbs range. She loves it and finds it easy to stick with. I have a harder time feeling full, but I am learning to work through that. It is nice to have the food all right there and quick. I can cook, and cook well, however we don't always have the time to cook well.
I get a lot of questions about what life is like on Nutrisystem. To that end, I get a lot of questions about how quickly or how fast the diet works.
People want to know how much weight they'll lose in a week, in a month or in a year. I'll try to answer these concerns in the following article. Typical Weekly Nutrisystem Weight Loss: If you look at the company's web site, you'll see that they tell you that pounds per week is about the average. However, if you spend anytime reading the blogs or forums you'll see that there are a subset of dieters that lose around 5 pounds per week. So, what separates the 2 pound folks from the 5 pound folks?
I'll discuss this more below, but I will tell you now that really the speed with which the pounds begin to melt aways largely depends upon the speed with which you are able to get your body in ketosis. See, in reality, Nutrisystem is sort of a low carb diet. All of the foods are high in protein and low in carbs. The company calls this "glycemic friendly" but what it really means is that you're forcing your body to feed on fat rather than on carbohydrates.
When you body begins doing this, it's called ketosis and this is when you start to see some pretty rapid weight loss. OK, now let's add this up. Many people who want quick results will be tempted to skip meals. This is a serious mistake. I understand why this seems like a good idea. You think you'll take in fewer calories and therefore will lose weight more quickly.
But, actually, you need to eat regularly and frequently to keep your metabolism humming and to stay in ketosis. All of the meals are very "safe," so there's no reason to skip them. Another thing that you can do is to really watch what foods and sides you're adding in. The company asks you to add dairy, fruit, or vegetables to each or your meals.
They give you very specific instructions for this. But, you can do your part by choosing foods that are very low on the glycemic index. There are lists that you can get all over the Internet to help you with this. I never understood how someone with so much weight to lose like I had could eat the same things as someone with just a few pounds to lose.
It seemed to me that we would need different programs but with Nutrisystem we can both use the same program and still be successful.
Cutting back on eating out and choosing Nutrisystem instead saved me money. As other Nutrisystem reviews attest, you have to follow the plan. You have to exercise. You have to drink your water. You have to avoid alcohol. You have to eat your fruits and veggies.
You have to put in the work and you will see the Nutrisystem results. Calories in versus calories burned. I like the whole idea of Nutrisystem because with the plan you are still eating regular foods. You are given the tools you need to succeed and transition back into eating regular foods again once you have reached your goal. The first few months I had to log what I ate each day. I also logged the amount of exercise that I did.
Now I am able to do the logging in my head. I eat more now than I did when I was actively trying to lose weight but I still monitor my weight and if I see it going up I just go back to doing what I did to lose the weight and keep it down where it needs to be.
Weight is going to be a lifelong battle for me. I am always going to have to exercise and watch what I eat but now I know how to do it.
I know that if I do find myself gaining weight I can lose it again. I am going to be very attentive to my body and keep watching myself to try and never be overweight again. I fluctuate between and pounds lost now. I went from weighing in at pounds to weighing somewhere around I have been as low as but it seems to stay right around I have been maintaining for nearly a year.
It took me right at a year to reach my goal. I lost pounds a week each week the whole time I was following the plan. I am still amazed at how far I have come. When I fold my clothes I have a hard time believing how small my clothes are now. I wear a Medium size shirt and in pants. I have some small dresses and shorts. I can wear clothes for nearly any store. I used to be limited in where I could shop, but not anymore.
While I was losing weight my sister also joined Nutrisystem. She lost over 70 pounds and really enjoyed the program as well. She lost her weight a lot quicker than I did. She was inspired to join because she saw me losing weight. My sister is a little older than me and after having two children she felt as though she would never get the baby weight off.
Nutrisystem made it possible for her to get the baby weight off. Nutrisystem provides counselors to help you with your plan.
You can call and talk to them when you hit a plateau. You can also use the forums on the Nutrisystem website to connect with other people using the program. With Nutrisystem you will never feel as though you are doing this on your own. You have a whole support system. They have been around over 40 years and they are here to stay because they really do know what they are doing. Nutrisystem works and they provide a sure fire way to get the weight off and keep it off. Nutrisystem is different than the other programs out there before they make it simple.
You just follow their plan and eat their food along with some additional add-ins that you purchase at the grocery store and watch the weight come flying off. On Nutrisystem you are eating several times a day.
Nutrisystem allows you to eat a dessert each and every day. The desserts are really good too. I love the ice cream sandwiches. They are absolutely my favorite. I also enjoy the cookies. While on the Nutrisystem program I received the shelf stable foods and the fresh frozen foods too. I love the fresh frozen foods but I also enjoy the shelf stable foods. There is not a breakfast or dessert that I did not enjoy.
I could eat any of the shelf stable and frozen desserts and breakfasts. They are all delicious. My favorite breakfasts are the turkey and egg breakfast sandwich, the breakfast burrito, the muffins, and the peanut butter granola bar. I enjoyed having the burrito for lunch and the tuna salad was another favorite of mine. When you eat the tuna salad you get to put it on sandwich thin bread. I always eat a big green salad with some Nutrisystem approved dressing with my lunch. The dinners were a little trickier for me to find the ones that I liked.
I love the hamburger, the chicken, the pizzas and the spaghetti. I sauté some veggies and add them to the dinner entrée and that makes them delicious. So a typical day on Nutrisystem would go like this. I get up and exercise for 30 minutes to an hour. I drink coffee and water after my workout to get my body moving. Then after a shower I get ready for work and when I get to work I have breakfast.
Breakfast is a protein shake and a breakfast entrée. Most mornings I would have a muffin with a protein shake. Then mid-morning I would have what they call a power fuel and a smart carb, which is some greek yogurt or cottage cheese with fresh fruit. Next I would have my lunch in a few hours.
