The NutriSystem Diet is a healthy diet that was envisioned in 1972. This diet plan does all the dirty work for the dieter. It has a program that plans, prepares, buys, cooks and proportions the meals that a dieter has to eat. The only thing needed for the dieter to do is to select easily and comfortably among a list of over one hundred twenty meals, foods and desserts that are available. Once the dieter has selected the food he desires, the food will be delivered at his doorstep. These meals are packed in microwavable bags. All the dieter has to do is place them inside his microwave.
Because of the frequent modifications in the way of life and eating preferences of man, this diet plan has been altered to fit with the needs of man. Therefore, in the year 2008, an advanced NutriSystem diet plan was brought in the market. It concentrated on the following:
Fifty-five percent of carbohydrates
oMeals that contained only 1,800 milligrams of sodium
oAbundant servings of whole grains
oSix servings of fruits and vegetables (six servings)
oFoods that are high in fiber
oTwenty-five percent of foods that are rich in protein
oTwenty percent of fat
oSoluble fiber and omega-3 fatty acids added on meals
The Advance plan does not recommend the intake of white bread, alcohol and processed foods. It recognizes the different dietary need of the two sexes so it designed the different amount of calories that men and women can take in a day. The plan recommends that 1,500 calories be allowed to take by men and 1,200 calories for women. It also requires the dieter to participate in physical activities. Aside from the food plan that it offers, there is also a fitness plan, which includes basic workouts and yoga.
