NutriSystem Day 21: Tired, Hungry, Not Much Lighter
Sure, some of the entrees may look dinky but if you mix them with a cup of cooked veggies your entree will be far more filling. I feel full after I eat, and this is the first weight loss program where I have felt like that. That really has helped me a lot. Make sure to drink at least 64 ounces of water - even more is better. I love the food at breakfast and lunch, but dinner is a little tough. Too busy to prepare your own low calorie meals? I have been a chronic skipper of breakfast most of my adult life.

Nutrisystem Day 3 - Hungry and Angry

It was easy to prepare. The only downside was slow shipping, but that could be because we live out in the middle of nowhere. I lost twenty pounds in two months! Combined with drinking plenty of water, green tea and exercise, I really feel that anyone can lose the weight. Replacing those unhealthy snacks with the approved Nutrisystem snacks helped curb my cravings throughout the day.

I am a fifty-five year old man, so I signed up for the Silver plan, which has a lot of great foods to choose from. Those two dinners I could eat everyday, and they were really easy to make. My cupboards were full, so that was a really good thing to see. My stomach was also full.

I always had enough to eat and never felt hungry. I am a construction worker. I wanted to slim down, even though I get regular exercise. I cal it my pony keg. My co-worker suggested I sign up with the Silver plan on Nutrisystem. He thought I might be able to lose weight and not feel hungry all the time.

Well, I did lose weight, but I was also kind of hungry most days. They were kind of dry and chewy. The lunch and dinners were really good though. I wish I could have gotten more of them, but I doubt I would have lost weight if I ate those all day. Overall, I would continue this diet if I liked the snacks better. Their food is delicious, and I would eat it as often as possible.

I work in an office, and I used to find myself snacking on chips and Snicker bars. My co-workers would come up to my desk and ask for a few bites it was so good. The meals were good, too. I love cooking, so I was able to make some really great meals by adding fresh fruits and vegetables. I would make the main dish, like the Homestyle Beef and Mashed Potatoes, and also add blanched asparagus or snap peas, and make a side salad with light dressing.

Since starting the diet, I have lost quite a bit of weight, and have felt more confident to start dating again. My new girlfriend loves coming over so I can cook for her, but I never feel tempted to eat her food, only my Nutrisystem meals that I have doctored up a bit. I used to make very fattening food, so I knew cooking myself had to stop if I wanted to lose weight.

The meals arrived in little containers that were easy to store. Whenever I was really hungry, I would fill up my water bottle, grab one of the Chocolate Bar snacks or a piece of fruit, and go for a walk.

I ate the meals and the snacks, but I also wanted fresh produce. I liked some of the meals, but I usually cooked them with lots of vegetables and had a glass of wine with dinner.

All in all, I will be continuing the Nutrisystem Silver plan because I like the convenience and I am still allowed to cook in addition to the packaged meals. The snacks are excellent and portable, which is great for exercising on the go.

After the first few weeks of being on the Nutrisystem Silver diet plan, I really started to notice the weight coming off. My day was planned out perfectly using the online diet planner.

I could get up in the morning, go for my morning jog, come back and have black coffee and a breakfast bar or the Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal, pack my lunch for work plus a snack and an apple, come home from work and do twenty minutes of yoga, and then do whatever family things needed to be done.

My wife was kind enough to make the family meal while I made my own dinners. After dinner, I could have chocolate for dessert! I rarely felt hungry. My kids are in high school, and they love that I am getting healthier and in shape. My wife has been getting up in the mornings and going for jogs with me. With our busy lifestyle, it has been nice to be able to find time to spend with her, and still be able to do something good for my body. So, I sign up during the winter to keep the weight off, and then go back to my normal diet during the summer.

However, this year, I decided to stay on the Nutrisystem plan all year because I was starting to miss the food! There was only one problem I had, and that was on a three month order. I only received one box when I should have received two. They were very helpful and though they were unable to locate the second box, they did replace my order for free. They even threw in a few free meals since I was such a loyal customer!

I am really glad that I signed up for this plan. The customer service and everything were great, but here is a review of my favorite foods in the Nutrisystem Silver plan. As you can tell, I really like cinnamon, but there were also some really great fruity flavored options. Lunches were great, too. Dinner was my favorite meal of the day. I was able to eat lots of hearty foods and add my favorite cooked vegetables according to my plan.

My favorite food was the Lasagna and the Meatloaf. I loved the meaty textures and the tastes. Great Program for Older Men 4 out of 5 stars. It was fast to make, perfectly portioned, and very tasty. I never felt hungry and the food was easy to make.

I also love the literature and online tools available to help me track my calories, and keep my exercise routine in place. The cost for food comes to about ten dollars a day for three meals plus snacks that keep me full all day.

So the cost is no problem. I used to spend much more every day for food. I used to be a cookie addict. My family is very proud of me for keeping my cookie cravings in check. Helped Get Me Back on Track 4 out of 5 stars. I have been on diets before, especially in my forties. Now I can eat real food that is easy to make and tastes really good. I also like the online meal planner and calorie counter. She has been exercizing too so we can prepare for our retirement to Florida in the summer.

I think we will both be bathing suit ready by spring. That would be helpful so I can see what my daily calorie intake is. Thank goodness I have automatic refills on my Nutrisystem food, or I would be out of luck. My favorites are definitely the dinners. I used to sit up and watch late night talk shows and just eat. Then again, I never liked meatloaf. I really, really enjoyed the three months of my Nutrisystem Silver plan.

I used the plan to get me down to my goal weight, and have since gone back to cooking my own meals. This time, however, I have started keeping track of calories and eating healthy foods. The Nutrisystem diet helped me be aware of what I was putting into my body. I knew I had been eating too much food before. Now, I have trained my stomach to feel fuller on smaller portions. By eating light meals and healthy snacks all day long, I find my energy is high and I am able to get through the workday and still find time to exercise in the evenings.

If I had used this diet when I was younger, I probably would have been able to play with my kids and not get so tired. Now they are grown with kids of their own, so it is definitely nice to be able to spend time with my grandchildren and not feel tired out by the time they go home.

Four months ago I started a Nutrisystem diet plan for older men. I used to feel sleepy most days. I am retired, but liked to volunteer at the local hospital. I had been asking for shorter and shorter shifts because I found myself nodding off during the day.

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?

And honestly, I probably ate too much on my free days. I am a true Nutrisystem fan! I have been doing Weight Watchers for years with my friend. As she says, once all of your points are gone on Weight Watchers, you get to eat your spit for dinner!

Well, my friend got really sick of doing the point thing, so she switched to Nutrisystem. My friend lost four pounds the first week and three pounds the second week on Nutrisystem. Once I heard about her success, I decided to switch, too. I am so excited! I feel like a new person and I get compliments on how I look all of the time.

I get all of my meals prepared for me, planned for me, and best of all, they taste great. Nutrisystem has that all figured out for you. Nutrisystem is giving me time back because everything is completely planned out. I have around 50 pounds to lose, so I figure two pounds a week is a pretty good rate. I really do like a lot of the food they deliver.

The Chicken Pasta Parmesan is my favorite dinner meal so far. All of the soups are great, but I really love the Chicken Salad. I also think that the breakfast choices and dessert options are really helping me to stick to the diet. I just finished two weeks on Nutrisystem. Nutrisystem was my last resort!

I figured if I spent the money for the food, maybe I would actually stick to the plan and lose some weight. Maybe I can get a sandwich at a restaurant next week! My pants even feel a little loose! This eating plan is so easy that I barely think about it. I can see this becoming a normal way of eating for me. Hopefully Nutrisystem is the answer to my weight loss problems. I am so happy with it that I am encouraging all of my friends to try it. After my three months of sticking to their regimen strictly, I have lost 21 pounds.

It is working so well. I love the way the food tastes. Pasta, chocolate, muffins, mashed potatoes! You name it, I can eat it! The choices are amazing. Every entrée tastes so different that I never get sick of eating the same thing. The Red Beans and Rice with Sausage is so good! The chocolate choices are outstanding as well.

The peppermint cookie patty is to die for! I also love that I can still go out to eat and stay on the plan. The Restaurant Guide keeps me on track for my weight loss goals without having to miss out of the social aspect of going out to eat with my friends. Nutrisystem is my long-term solution for losing weight.

I have struggled for so long to lose weight after having three kids. One of my greatest struggles is snacking with my kids. They love the cookies and the chips and the goldfish, and it is so easy for me to just grab handfuls of their snacks while I am sitting around talking to them. All this snacking has been keeping me from losing weight. When they eat their cheese puffs, I can get my Nutrisystem Cheese Puffs out. When they eat a brownie, I can eat my Nutrisystem Fudge Brownie.

When they get a candy bar, I can eat a Nutrisystem candy bar. It is so freeing! Losing weight has never been so much fun. So far, after six months on Nutrisystem, I have lost 20 pounds.

I am so happy. I am now confident enough to add in exercise and I know that will increase the rate at which I am losing weight. My sisters and I are really close. There are four of us. All of us love to eat, we love to eat together, and we are all obese.
