My Nutrisystem Experiment
You are a true inspiration, I am on my own similar weight loss journey but Im thinking I need to look into nurti system. The calorie count is designed to help you lose a pound or two each week on this diet program. I started feeling very weak and tired, so I added: What are Nutrisystem Smart Carbs? The real question is whether you can continue to lose weight or maintain your weight when you are no longer relying on the prepackaged foods.

The Promise

The Nutrisystem Diet

Women should be adding 1 SmartCarb to their diet per day and men should be adding 2 SmartCarbs per day on the full Nutrisystem plan. This is the same for both men and women. You will get a full list of Smart Carb ideas and serving sizes with your first Nutrisystem order. Make sure to vary your choices of Smart Carbs throughout the week to give your body a diversity of different nutrients. When in doubt about serving size, remember that 1 serving of Smart Carbs should be equal to about 80 — calories.

Hummus with Baby Carrots and Celery. Lunches and dinners include selections like tacos; chicken and pasta; soup , stew, and chili; and pizza. The program provides a long list of fruits, vegetables, nuts, fresh meat and dairy, and other foods that you can eat along with your Nutrisystem foods.

A variety of nutrients. These don't raise your blood sugar as much as other foods. The calorie count is designed to help you lose a pound or two each week on this diet program. The exception is the "Lean 13" plan on which women can lose up to 13 pounds and 7 inches in the first month while men can expect to lose 15 pounds and 7 inches.. According to the company, the programs provide about 2, milligrams of sodium daily.

The foods you buy on your own may add to the total. And you may get fewer calories than you're used to. You pick your foods from the choices Nutrisystem offers. There are foods to choose from their most extensive plan "Uniquely Yours. You can buy a day shipment of food that the company selects, or you can choose each individual item yourself.

You can sign up for a meal plan intended for women, men, vegetarians, people with diabetes, or anyone older than You hardly have to cook, since most Nutrisystem foods either are ready to eat or only need heating. But some items that you buy from the grocery store, like vegetables and fish, may involve more preparation.

The size of the "meals" is small compared to what I am use to. Portion control is one thing I am hoping to take away from the plan. There is no way that what is given per meal is going to fill me up, but it isn't suppose to!

I need to eat more fresh foods. The perk of this is that when I am ravenous, I can go grab a ready to go meal, eat that, and then work on the other meal components. I am hoping this helps control that impulsive eating I have done in the past.

Some of the meal pictures on the label do not look that appetizing either. While perusing their site when I was waiting for my shipment to arrive, I noticed they have a section where you can enter the meal and it will give you ideas that stay within the program limits of ways to perk up the NS shelf stable meal with your added fresh foods. I am going to be eating six times a day which is also different. Before, I would eat once or twice a day, mostly in the evening.

For the afternoon snack, I get one SmartCarb. The plan calls for 8 8 ounce glasses of water. Three ten minute exercise sessions and at least 4 cups of servings of low carb vegetables. In the program book, I learned I can have as many low carb veggies as I want to fill me up. There is more to the program than what I have listed here, but that gives you a good overview.

It is necessary to read your program book to learn what you can and can't do on the program. So, here goes my experiment.
