Is The Nutrisystem Diet Easy To Follow?

Posted on June 12, 2018 in Uncategorized

I get a lot of emails from people trying to figure out how difficult life will be should they choose to go on the Nutrisystem diet. Many people are attracted to prepackaged diets like this precisely because they don’t want to have to do a lot of food preparation or make a lot of difficult decisions or calculations. Essentially, most people are looking for a diet that is very easy to follow and to figure out. And they want food that is as close to already prepared as is possible.

I heard from someone who said “is the Nutrisystem diet easy to figure out and follow? I don’t have a lot of time to figure something out or to count calories and make my own food. Is this diet an easy one or is it too complicated?” I’ll address these concerns in the following article, as well as tell you the steps that you’d need to take when implementing Nutrisystem from start to finish. That way, you can decide for yourself if this system would be easy for you to figure out.

Step One: Figure Out What Plan Or Package Works Best For You: To be quite honest, choosing your package and your corresponding foods are probably the steps that will take the most time. You can chose to buy your food a la carte if you’re going to be on the diet for less than two weeks. Or, there are 2 week and 4 week packages. There are regular men’s and women’s packages, packages for vegetarian, older, and diabetic individuals, and packages that contain frozen foods.

Step Two: Figure Out What Foods You Want To Eat: Once you’ve decided which package you want to go with, you’ll be given a couple of options. You can either go with the “favorites” package or you can customize your own. The favorites package is a sampling of the most popular items on the menu. So, you can feel pretty confident that you will like what is selected if you go with the favorites option. But if you’re unsure, you can chose your own foods by customizing your package. They walk you through the process showing you both your options and how many more meals you need to select to complete your package. Also, all of the food items are rated by users to help you decide. I find that very helpful because you can literally read about what people like and don’t like about any food that you’re considering.

Step 3: Chose What You Feel Like Eating On Any Given Day: Basically, you need to eat five Nutrisystem meals per day – a breakfast, a lunch, a dinner, a snack, and a dessert. So each day, you can choose what you feel like eating that day depending on your mood, your cravings, and what you have left in your rotation. Also, you’ll need to add in fresh sides with you meals (like milk to the cereal, or fresh fruit with your pizza for lunch, just as examples.)

And although you will chose your food, this really is all the work that is entailed. There’s no counting calories or adding points or keeping track of your protein to carbohydrate ratio. You’re basically just choosing your foods and that’s it. If you want to exercise, you can but no one is going to keep score or demand that you log it in.

So in my opinion, yes, Nutrisystem is easy to figure out for most people. Honestly, the major decisions that you have to make is which package to order and what foods you will eat each day. But that is really about it and that’s not too difficult to handle for most.

Posted on June 4, 2018 in Uncategorized

This Generac 5939 GP5500 review is meant to introduce a mid-sized portable generator that is designed to be used during power outages to back up a home or at a job site. There are smaller units available for a person looking for an energy source for power tools. When inclement weather strikes, it is always smart to be ready with a way to run electricity through the home.

This portable generator has a compact frame that can be used with hobbies in nature like fishing or camping. It’s main use for around the house, especially in places where hurricanes are often found. It is one of the newest and most affordable options in the Generac GP line. It is a heavy-duty piece of machinery that will come in handy under stressful circumstances. Here is a look at the useful features that make it a worthwhile investment.

Running Watts

It is important to understand the running wattage of a generator since this is what will dictate the devices that can be run. This generator offers 5,500 running wattage. This is usually enough power to run a refrigerator and lights around the house. It can also be used to power security systems, computers, and electric stove tops. No more than 45 amps should be run at the same time.

Engine Horsepower

The Generac GP5500 has a powerful OHV engine that produces about 12 horsepower. This generator comes with a 7.2 gallon steel gas tank. In general terms, the larger the gas tank, the longer the generator will be able to run in times of need. It includes a built-in fuel gauge which helps a person keep track of fuel levels. As a bonus, Generac supplies the first tank of oil. The Generac GP5500 also has a safeguard against engine damage through its low oil shutdown mechanism. At 50% load, this machine can run for up to 10 hours.

Starting Method

The Generac 593 GP5500 comes with a manual/pull start. This means that there is a rope with a grip at the end that is coiled at the end of a crankshaft. A person must pull the grip which cranks up the engine. Inside there is a flywheel that spins and starts the engine. There is a racket mechanism inside that keeps the crankshaft spinning. This starting method requires the most physical action to begin use.There is no current list given for Generac generator on decibel ratings. However the Generac GP5500 has a low tone muffler which provides quiet operation.

Fuel type

This generator uses gasoline like most portable generators. This makes it simple to refill in times of need.


It is essential to understand that the Generac GP5500 is not CARB compliant. Therefore people who live in California cannot buy and use this item. On a positive note, it is compliant with the rest of the United States territory.

One of the best features that must be discussed in this Generac 5939 GP5500 review is the construction. It is an extremely strong piece of equipment that has a steel tubed cradle. The outlets are protected from being overloaded and there are gauges which display fuel levels and times between maintenance. To make it extra portable, it has handles that fold down and never flat wheels. Its design provides excellent weight to power ratio.


All Power America APG3014 Review

Posted on May 28, 2018 in Uncategorized

The following is a review of the All Power America APG3014 2,000 Watt 4-Stroke Gas Powered Portable Generator. Introducing the AGP3014 generator model, an addition to the All Power America line. A portable and lightweight generator which is best seen used in camping or as a back-up in a power outage. With a max wattage of 2000 watts and an about of 1400 this isn’t the strongest 4 stroke generator on the market but is still appreciable for the modest price. It’ll also run for 9 hours at 50% load which is a competitive rate for the other generators in the market.

Running Wattage

The running watts of a generator is the wattage output the generator exhibits. In order for the generator to power the tool or application it must be of lesser wattage than the generator itself. It’s very important to ensure that the figures match up before purchase as otherwise the generator may not be able to run the chosen appliance. Running wattage can usually be found on some online documentation. The running wattage of the All Power America APG3014 is 1400. The starting wattage of an appliance is the maximum wattage output of the device. This is a necessary value to include as many appliances require an increase in wattage to be started up and the decrease to a lower value to maintain operation. The starting wattage of the All Power America APG 3014 is 2000.

Engine Horsepower

This portable generator exhibits 3 horsepower. The capacity of a fuel tank can be an important factor which considering which generator to buy as it ultimately has a bearing on how long the generator will be able to stay active for. The fuel tank capacity of the All Power America AGP3014 is 1.3 gallons.

Starting Method

The All Power America AGP3014 features a recoil start. Operating noise is an important feature to take into account because it determines how noisy or not the device will ultimately be.


Bad news for potential user from California as this power generator is not CARB approved. It is however EPA approved and can be sold and operated legally in 49 states. My favorite feature of this portable generator is the ½ load run time. In the case of power outage this backup generator will provide you with power for 9 hours. That should be more than enough time for the emergency authorities to restore power to your area.
