What You Can Eat and What You Can't

Nutrisystem Day 3 - Hungry and Angry

According to my friend Sydnie as well as the message board posters, they want you to stay between 1, and 1, calories. Everything I know about dieting says that is an extremely low amount of calories, especially on the days that a person is exercising. What I Ate Today: NS Chocolate Crunch Bar — calories.

So do I throw everything I know out the window for 28 days? And I certainly have more strength of character and conviction than those little tarts. I am a star in my own right if only in my own bathroom when I sing in the shower. So being a star, I owe it to everyone around me to be as hot as I possibly can! Boy, I'm really reaching for motivation. I do want to reinvent myself.

The first pounds I lost was 7 years ago and pretty shocking to everyone. That is what happens when you spend most of your life being super-morbidly obese. You can break this up into three minute periods throughout the day. There are meal plans for vegetarians and people with diabetes.

But the program does not have plans for people following a vegan diet. And it doesn't allow for certain food allergies including soy or peanut allergies , and it's not gluten-free. The cost varies based on things like the plan you choose -- such as for women or men, vegetarians, older adults, or people with diabetes. The program has an online community and web-based tools, as well as help by phone.

You may face a challenge when you go off the program and have to make more food choices on your own. The program provides information on how to do this. Controlling calories and portions and eating regular meals is a healthy formula that should result in weight loss while on the plan. It can be harder to make the transition to eating "real food" when you get closer to your weight-loss goal and don't rely on meals already made for you.

Overall the diet is healthy for people with conditions like heart disease , high blood pressure , high cholesterol , and diabetes. Meals are low in sodium, saturated fats , and trans fats , and include high-fiber whole grains, smart carbs, healthy fats , lean protein, and a wide variety of foods.

The Nutrisystem diet is the ultimate in convenience. 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 Nutrisystem aims to simplify weight loss. 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. For lunch I would have a big salad with lots of veggies and a low-fat low-calorie dressing. My favorite dressings are Greek yogurt based and considered a limited extra on the Nutrisystem plan because they are 35 calories per serving.

You can have up to 3 limited extras throughout the day. A few more hours after lunch, I would have another power fuel and smart carb. Typically that would be an apple with peanut butter. Finally I would have my dinner with some more veggies and a dessert right before bed. See how much food you get to eat on the Nutrisystem plan? I always saved my dessert as long as possible because looking forward to the dessert helped me stay away from temptations throughout the day. I work at a fairly large office and there are lots of birthdays and other celebrations.
