NutriSystem Diet Advantages

Posted on March 20, 2018 in Uncategorized

If you are considering NutriSystem diet then you have probably seen plenty of websites listing the pros and cons of this weight loss plan. Though I read reviews of products and websites often, I find that there are individuals who will focus on the negative points of most anything, and this can be detrimental to giving it a fair chance.

So instead I am going to give you the mindset that you can use to be a success and finally lose the weight you want to on the NutriSystem diet. After all why should someone else’s issues become an obstacle to you getting thin and healthy.

The major benefit of the this weight loss plan is that the meals are prepared for you in advance. One of the best ways to be successful on a diet is to plan your meals the day before. When you are on the NutriSystem diet you could even do this for several days or a week in advance. So when life gets stressful and you are confused and short of time it is easy just to grab the meal that is on your schedule.

The meals that are prepared in advance are carefully measured so that you do not overeat. Ultimately what happens is that you start to eat less and get used to it. Over time you will find yourself being much more comfortable eating much smaller portions, this means your stomach has begun to shrink.

Current conventional wisdom says that it is important to eat often during the day. This is why you will be eating three meals and two snacks, five times a day is a very efficient timing of meals to enhance your weight loss.

Binge eating is often triggered by spikes and lulls in blood sugar levels. This can be remedied by adopting a diet that is concentrated in foods that have a low glycemic index. On this plan all the meals are carefully analyzed to have a low glycemic index.

An Overview of the Nutrisystem Diet and a List of the Celebrities Who’ve Endorsed and Been on It

Posted on March 14, 2018 in Uncategorized

The Nutrisystem diet may be best known as the diet on which many celebrities publicly dropped a lot of weight. Below is a list of famous people who’ve signed on with the company.

Women Celebrities: The women celebrity spokespersons have included Tori Spelling, Jillian Barberie, Marie Osmond, Danielle Fishel (Boy Meets World), and Zora Andrich (from Joe Millionaire).

Postpartum Weight Loss: Nutrisystem is also known as the celebrity postpartum diet, as Tori Spelling and Jillian Barberie both lost over 40 pounds after giving birth to their children. (Tori with son Liam and Jillian with daughter Ruby). Following this weight loss, Tori Spelling showed off her new figure and bared a lot of skin for Pussy Cat Dolls while Jillian Barberie paraded around in a bikini proving that, even at 40, mothers can be extremely fit.

Men Celebrities: Because this diet plan has a very popular men’s diet, the company has obtained men celebrity spokespersons as well, including Dan Marino (ex NFL quarterback), Joey Fatone (Dancing With The Stars, N Sync), ex NFL coach Don Shula, and comedians Larry The Cable Guy And Ant (host of Celebrity Fit Club).

An Overview Of The Nutrisystem Diet: Whether you are famous or not, the diet works in the same way. It is prepackaged meal replacement plan. This means that, five times per day, you’ll eat the diet’s prepackaged meals and add your own healthy additions like fruits and vegetables, or yogurt. The foods are low calorie, low in carbohydrates, and high in protein. This situation sets up your body to burn its own fat, since there are not many carbs available for this purpose. The meals are very easy to assemble, with most being grab and go, and others only requiring minimal preparation.

Wide Variety Of Decent Tasting Comfort Food Choices: In my opinion, the best thing about this diet, (and probably the reason that it is so popular) is that there are many food choices (over 130) that include comfort foods, snacks, and desserts. There is pizza, macaroni and cheese, tacos, chocolate cake, ravioli, and cereals, muffins, and pancakes. And this is only the tip of the ice berg. I included these examples because they appeal to me, but everyone is different. Even if you are extremely picking as I am, there’s probably something that you will like.

And although you are technically on a low carb diet, you will not feel like you are. I find that the taste of the food is not too bad with a few exceptions. (I can not stomach the stroganoff.) And, unlike most other low carb diets, you aren’t eating meat all day / everyday and consuming large amounts of fat and cholesterol.

Cost / Effectiveness: The company says that the plan is designed so that dieters lose about 2 pounds per week. Of course, all the celebrities seem to do better than this and make it look oh so easy. Keep in mind Marie Osmond and Joey Fatone were kicking it up on Dancing With The Stars, and Jillian Barberie freely admits she had to work out postpartum for their first time in her life.

Still, it’s pretty clear that if you add some sort of exercise into your routine, you’ll enhance your results. It doesn’t have to be drudgery either. Just chose something you already like to do and kick that up a bit, like dancing, roller blading, or power walking. You’re also given a free work out video with all purchases.

The cost of Nutrisystem is around $10 per day, but there are usually specials running that throw in free shipping, extras / freebies or discounts. Considering the cost of gas and groceries today, this really isn’t too bad. You only pay for your food (no membership fees), and they offer free weight loss counseling.

A Review of the Rock Star Energy Drink

Posted on March 8, 2018 in Uncategorized

Remember the good old days when a hot cup of coffee was what you needed to get going in the morning? Do you also remember how difficult it was to make a cup of coffee? And, man, did it not make you feel dehydrated when you went to the gym afterwards?

Well, those days of the past are exactly that – the past! Instead of having to “enjoy” coffee for your energy needs, you can now enjoy a little something more appealing. You can sit back and drink down a Rock Star Energy Drink instead.

The Rock Star Energy Drink first emerged on the scene a few short years ago and it was an instant hit. This product delivered all the power of the then (and still) popular Red Bull drink. There were, however, some major differences between the two. Namely, Rock Star comes in a much larger can.

The original can of Rock Star drink is 16 fluid ounces which is much more than what its much smaller competitors provided. (There are now 8 and 24 ounce cans) Also, this was – and remains – much cheaper than the other energy drinks out there. This further adds to its unique appeal.

Of course, the main thing people want out of an energy drink is – you guessed it – energy. With Rock Star, you will definitely feel a kick since it is loaded with natural energy producing ingredients such as Guarana, Ginkgo, Ginseng and Milk Thistle. These are all natural products that will definitely provide a major boost to one’s energy levels. Similarly, these drinks are loaded with scores of B vitamins that will aid in increasing energy levels while also providing a healthy boost to the immune system.

If there was one negative to the Rock Star Energy Drink it would have been the high sugar content. Thankfully, the people behind this company understood this and soon released an excellent sugar free version of the product.

This way, those looking to cut sugar and carbs out of their diet can do so while still enjoying the benefits of chugging down a can. However, the original Rock Star was not known for a stellar taste and the removal of sugar from the equation led to a bland product. So, you could consider the sugar free variant to be more functional than appealing.

This message was not ignored by the powers that be and several different variants of the traditional Drink started to appear on store shelves. These variants were fruit flavored versions of the drink. So, avid fans could now choice between mango, pomegranate, citrus, and several others. This added to the drink’s appeal in the market place and a major reason why it still remains so popular.

The popularity of the Rock Star Energy Drink will not abate any time soon. This is a solid product with a lot to offer those that enjoy energy drinks. As such, it will surely remain a popular fixture on store shelves for many years to come.
