I can see this becoming a normal way of eating for me. NutriSystem's shift to an online dieting service offers more flexibility to people with irregular schedules and little free time to attend meetings and prepare low-calorie meals and snacks. Because its based on the breakthrough science of the Glycemic Index, carbs are no longer off limits. I am so happy with it that I am encouraging all of my friends to try it. I can snack with my kids 4. I kind of think it tastes like cardboard.

However, dinner is another story. The Homestyle Beef has been my least favorite so far. I guess that is what is so good about the plan; I can change what I eat if I find something that I really dislike. Nutrisystem has helped me so much with the eating part of that. The food tastes really great, and never once have I felt like I needed to eat something else after I have finished one of their entrées.
I especially love the pasta dinner dishes. I feel like I can now eat pasta without feeling guilty; which is a nice change. That really has helped me a lot. The part I wish were different with Nutrisystem is the exercise portion.
I know that I can enter my exercise online, but I wish there were some more specific guidelines as to how much I need to exercise.
In the past, I always stayed away from things like muffins, granola bars, and pasta because I figured it would be too many calories. With Nutrisystem, I can have ravioli for dinner and feel like I had a real treat.
I feel like the Nutrisystem meals are a splurge enough! This has been really helpful in keeping me on track when my family goes out to eat. As a working mom, sometimes fast food is the only way dinner is going to happen, and the Nutrisystem Restaurant Guide has kept me on track on those nights.
I have been a chronic skipper of breakfast most of my adult life. After Nutrisystem, I am sold on eating breakfast for weight loss. I absolutely adore their muffins and cereals. I am convinced that these delicious breakfast foods are helping me lose the weight that I have always wanted to lose.
The Double Chocolate Muffins are my absolute favorite. The other really great thing about this plan is the Restaurant Guide. I have lost a total of 25 pounds on the Nutrisystem diet. I know that should make me give them 5 stars, but I have to be honest. I do not like the snacks that I have tried, especially the soy chips.
I think they taste like paper. That said, I do really like the meals, especially the breakfast choices. The muffins and granola bars taste really good.
So do the cereals. The lunches are pretty good, but I absolutely love the pasta dishes for dinner. I am really happy with the weight loss, and this plan has, by far, been the easiest plan to implement. I feel full after I eat, and this is the first weight loss program where I have felt like that.
I am not one for exercise, so the weight loss plans where they say you have to exercise 5 times a week really turn me off. I know that Nutrisystem encourages exercise, but in two weeks I have lost 5 pounds without exercising at all. The food plan is so incredibly easy. I love that I just open up the boxes, and there is my food, ready for me to eat without having to cook or shop. I am so happy to have someone else decide the details of what I should eat, but that I still have choices.
I also am thrilled that I am losing weight without having to exercise at all. Nutrisystem is the easiest weight loss system out there. I am so happy with how it is working for me. I think I can really meet that initial goal that I set for myself. I ordered my first round of Nutrisystem meals so that I could get them and start on January 1st. I am so happy with the results, because only two week into the plan, I have already lost six pounds.
I am single, and it is much easier to just go through a drive-thru window for fast food than it is to cook for one person. The lunches and dinners are the very best thing about this plan. The food tastes so great. I absolutely love the Hearty Beef Stew because it reminds me of the stew my mom used to make for me when I was a kid.
And I adore the Macaroni and Cheese as well. I have lost three pounds, which I am thrilled about. However, I walk around really hungry! The problem is, it tastes so good that I want more of it. The Thick Crust Pizza tastes amazing. So does the Sweet and Sour Chicken. I am told that this will get easier soon because eating less than I am used to eating will make my stomach shrink. I think the Restaurant Guide will be helpful once I get over my portion control issue.
I guess part of losing weight is feeling hungry, but that is not something I am used to. I still lost weight! I have lost about ten pounds so far. I feel like it should be a little more than that, but have you ever heard of someone losing ten pounds during the holidays? Originally developed to help people with diabetes better control blood sugar, the glycemic index has also been used to guide weight-loss efforts. Diets based on the glycemic index promote eating "good" carbohydrates -- whole grains and vegetables-rather than "bad" refined carbohydrates because the body digests them more slowly.
As a result, they do not substantially affect blood sugar levels and may prevent the body from storing fat easily. They also help you feel full longer.
All NutriSystem participants are assigned a personal weight-loss counselor, who helps track their progress, provides support, and answers questions about the program. New members also receive a free diet analysis, a menu plan, a catalog of products, a food diary, and an online weekly newsletter.
Members also receive an exercise book, and counselors help tailor an exercise plan to suit your lifestyle and goals. Other services include online classes, chat rooms, and bulletin boards. NutriSystem's menus are based on prepackaged entrees and snacks, called Nourish foods, and it's next to impossible to follow the diet without purchasing the packaged meals.
NutriSystem has separate programs designed for men and women over the age of These programs are tailored to the specific nutritional needs and weight-loss challenges of the older adult.
In addition to the standard membership benefits, participants in the Over 60 Program receive a supply of NutriHance Over 60 Multivitamins, and women in the Over 60 Program can choose from NutriPeptide bars and shakes for lunch. Like Jenny Craig, the rationale is that preplanned menus incorporating prepackaged, pre-portioned foods make it easier to stick with a weight-loss program.
