Tips for Getting Started in the Nutrisystem Diet

Posted on September 20, 2018 in Uncategorized

I often hear from people who are interested in the Nutrisystem diet but are unsure of how to proceed. They aren’t sure how to begin or how to get started in the most easy, fast, and painless way. I know that it can feel as if there are a lot of things to consider when getting started on this diet, but it doesn’t have to be all that overwhelming. It’s very important that you don’t allow all of the decisions that you have to make to deter you from just beginning and doing the best that you can. There will be plenty of help along the way. In the following article, I’ll offer you some easy tips on getting started with the Nutrisystem diet.

Don’t Get Overwhelmed. Start By Answering A Few Basic Questions And Go From There: Sure, there are a lot of foods, plans, and choices to make on this diet. But they can often be addressed very quickly by answering a couple of questions.

First, you’ll want to ask yourself how much weight you want to lose. Answering this question will give you some idea as to how long you’ll want to be on the diet and which package might be appropriate. The ranges the company gives are 2 – 3 pounds per week, so if you have 8 or more pounds to lose, a package may be the way to go. Now, they have one, two, three, and four week packages. Nutrisystem also has a program called the “flex plan” which lets you take weekends off.

So depending on how much weight you have to lose and how often you want to eat the foods, there are several plans to choose from. There’s the basic women’s, the men’s program, the vegetarian program, the plan for older people (silver,) and the diabetic program. Unless you have a health concern or preference or you want to go part time, most people will look at the basic program.

So by now, hopefully you have your eye on which program may be right for you. Now, let’s look at choosing your foods.

The Next Step: Choosing The Nutrisystem Foods You’d Enjoy The Most: Many people don’t realize that you can chose your own foods if you want to. There’s basically two options (and they both usually cost the same.) You can go with the favorites package or you can go into the customize your menu option. The company’s packages include samples of the most popular foods and many people chose to start there since they are new to the program and have no idea which foods they are going to like.

But you can hand pick only the foods you want if that appeals to you more. Once you get into the customization menu, the page will walk you through how many breakfasts, lunches, dinners, snacks, and desserts that you need to choose to complete your package. One very cool thing that Nutrisystem has recently implemented is that they allow their users to review and rank every item on their menu. So when you’re choosing your foods, you can see how each item is rated to help you determine which items you might like the most.

The final point I want to make about the foods is that you’ll need to choose between the basic or the “select” foods. The real difference is that the basic plan includes only the ready to eat foods that are soft canned while the “select” line contains some frozen, gourmet entrees. The select line is usually a bit more expensive (although they sometimes put it one sale) but many feel that it’s worth it to have access to some of the gourmet foods.

Educate Yourself About How Nutrisystem Works And Take Advantage Of Every Resource They Offer: While you’re waiting for your order, educate yourself about how the program works and why you lose weight on it. Essentially, all of the Nutrisystem foods have been highly modified to be low in calories and carbs, while at the same time being high in protein and fiber. This encourages your body to shed both pounds and fat because your body burns fat rather than carbs.

Now, you are asked to add in fresh sides items with each of the prepackaged meals. You might add fruit, a vegetable, or a serving of dairy or whole grain, etc. It’s important that you know which foods are acceptable and recommended. You want to make sure that (especially at first) your side items aren’t high in those things you’re trying to cut down on. When people tell me they aren’t seeing the results that they want, I always suggest looking at their side items because you want to make sure that nothing stops that fat burning process.

Nutrisystem also offers free information, resources and counseling. You get detailed instructions, weight trackers, and daily emails, inspiration, and advice. But more than that, the company offers counseling absolutely free to any one who wants or needs it. This is a wonderful resource that I would suggest taking advantage of. Many people don’t realize it’s there or are reluctant to reach out.

Remember To Use Nutrisystem Coupons Or Take Advantage Of Specials: If you’re ordering any kind of package (even the flex plan,) you can take advantage of coupons are special offers. The company is very good about offering revolving specials and applicable coupon codes. There’s often some money off, free food, or a combination of both. Seeking these out and matching them with your package before placing your order can save you a significant amount of money.

The Nutrisystem Diet

Diet and weight loss is a huge industry nowadays. Countless new diet plans are invented every day, some effective, others not as effective. Choosing from these weight loss programs can be quite overwhelming for dieters. That is why it is always a good idea to look for a program that has been around for a while and has testimonials from users available. The Nutrisystem diet is one of these.

Nutrisystem is one of the easiest and most convenient diet programs around and that´s the main reason why many people like it so much. All the work is done for you, you just have to eat their pre-packaged meals and you will lose weight. Nutrisystem also provides lots of education on healthy eating.

The results of this survey will then be used to create your diet plan. Nutrisystem has special programs available designed for diabetics and vegetarians.

Besides the pre-prepared meals offered by Nutrisystem they also encourage you to add certain fresh foods, like fruits and vegetables, to your diet. The program tells you to avoid certain foods that make blood sugar levels rise rapidly and cause weight gain. While Nutrisystem doesn´t include an exercise program and is effective without it, you may also want to engage in some exercise to help you lose weight even faster.


Diabetes Free Program Review

Posted on September 7, 2018 in Uncategorized

So you have heard made mention of the Diabetes Free program right? You have wondered what it is, who is behind it and whether it really works. You have wondered whether this is just another hoax or scam designed to separate you from your hard earned money. I have wondered the same thing too.

Indeed if going by the warnings about scams and ineffective dietary supplements put out there by well-respected Diabetes support organizations like Diabetes UK, one can hardly go wrong by taking time out to do a little research on the program. And so like you, I decided to do a little digging. Diabetes Free-what then, is it?

The Diabetes Free program is a downloadable e-book written by Dr David Pearson geared towards helping diabetics reverse the disease. It is featured on ClickBank and can be bought at the website for $37.

On visiting the website you will be played a 41 minutes video pitch, which initially promised to be no more than 6 minutes (quite annoying). Nevertheless, it talks about the challenges and complications arising from diabetes in general and what people normally have to do-dietary restrictions for example, to manage it.

It then goes on to talk about how good it would be to eat what you want- like hot dogs, milkshakes etc. without having to worry about your blood sugar spiking. This, it continued was possible through the Diabetes Free program.

The program itself is filled with techniques, tips and the diet plan which will assist diabetics achieve this. Being natural, it rejects the synthesized chemicals approach and focuses on the body’s natural stabilizing mechanisms.

Like all ClickBank e-books, a Diabetes free program purchase is refundable within a 60 days period.

Some of the claims do have scientific bases. For example it posits that the secret of the program is a mixture of exotic compounds effective to increase IGF or Insulin like Growth Factor (works like insulin) which is found in the liver. So what is IGF?

According to Wikipedia “Insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1), also called somatomedin C, is a protein that in humans is encoded by the IGF 1gene. IGF-1 has also been referred to as a “sulfaction” factor” and its effects were termed “nonsuppressible insulin-like activity” (NSILA) in the 1970s… It is produced mostly by the liver as an endocrine hormone as well as in target tissues… ” Produced throughout life, it enjoys its highest rates of production during puberty and lowest during infancy and old age.

As far as diabetes goes, clinical trials actually showed impressive results of its efficacy for reducing hemoglobin A1C levels as well as daily insulin consumption in both Type 1 and Type 2 cases. However, Genetech, the sponsor of the trials discontinued the program due to its exacerbation of diabetic retinopathy. It is expected thus that the mixture of compounds that Diabetes Free offers should have a way of combating this contraindication.

The second nodule of the program is the elimination of gluten from a person’s diet. This also has some scientific bases. Namely that a 2009 study testing 42 Type 1 diabetics showed a connection between wheat and the development of the condition.

The results showed that the immune system of almost half of these had an abnormal response to wheat proteins. And this corresponds to the finding that an estimated 10% of people with Type 1 diabetes also have celiac disease – a gluten causative condition.

Further, the results of a study comparing two groups- one on the paleo diet and the other on the Mediterranean diet containing grains (in order words gluten containing foods) showed that while those in the Mediterranean group had little improvement in their diabetes symptoms, members of the Paleo group were able to reverse their diabetes symptoms.

Furthermore, whilst the Mediterranean group had a “7 percent lower rise in glucose in response to carbohydrate intake, the paleo group experienced a 26% reduction”. As such the program identifies recipes and foods that are gluten free. Thus foods like wheat, semolina, barley, oats and rye are off the menu.

In addition to the above main points, Diabetes Free advises other diets and lifestyle changes one can make to help eradicate unsafe acids from the body.

The package also comes with 3 bonus reports; namely- 1. Foot Miracle -to improve blood circulation and prevent diabetic foot problems like diabetic neuropathy, 2. 27 Deserts (drawn up in collaboration with dieticians, endocrinologists and bakers) that will allow you to eat what you want without spiking your blood sugar and 3. Breathe in to New Life- Indian breathing techniques that will help you improve your overall health.

Merits and Demerits of the Diabetes Free program


Achieves positive results fast.

Going by information on the official site of the cure, by simply following the recommendations, permanent results can be achieved in 14 days. Though I was hard put to find people who actually reversed their diabetes within such a small time frame, I did come across reports of people who recorded incredible results in only 4-6 weeks.

Takes the natural approach to curing diabetes-no side effects

Because it takes the natural approach, users do not experience the nasty side effects associated with conventional medications.

Improvement in Quality of Life

Because it frees you from the constant blood sugar monitoring, testing, carb counting and the like, it actually improves ones general quality of life. Giving you time to concentrate on living and enjoying the food that you love.

User friendly information layout

Life is so much easier when one doesn’t have to deal with jargons and interpret technicalities. This program makes things that much more easier because it is written in simple language that’s easy to understand and follow.

60 Days refundable payment

Once purchased you have a 60 day guarantee of returning it and having your money back. This sounds more than fair, since if you consider that transfer is by down load, strictly speaking, you don’t actually return it when you ask for a refund.


Only available as an e-book and not in hard copy. For those who like the reality interface that hard copy offers, this might be a minus.

It appears to be designed mainly for Type 2 diabetics although the Insulin-like growth Factor whose production the program aims to increase, has been said to have positive effects on Type 1. Patients. Dr. Pearson does not make this added advantage clear in his video.

Not a Quick fix cure

Determination and discipline is necessary to successfully follow this program and achieve the desired results. The program is not a quick fix or a silver bullet that will eliminate diabetes at the drop of a hat. Though results achieved can be relatively fast, it requires effort.


My belief is that Diabetes free program is an effective guide that will be beneficial to any Type 2 diabetic. Premised on natural therapies to boost and strengthen the body’s metabolic agents, the underlying rationale for the treatment does have scientific bases.

Having looked at it from many angles, I’m hard put to call it a scam, since you do get to have your money back if you don’t like it. Besides, the testimony of people who have tried it, suggests that this is not just another quack cure.

On the down side though, it is not a silver bullet or quick fix remedy for curing diabetes. Following the program and achieving the desired results requires persistence, discipline and determination. As such if you can’t muster the will to follow the instructions and make the necessary life style modifications, then the Diabetes Free program may not be for you.

On the other hand if you can and are keen on a side-effects free natural remedy for permanently reversing your Type 2 diabetes, then I see no reason why you shouldn’t give this a try. After all, what have you got to lose?
