How Long Does The Commitment Have To Be For The Nutrisystem Diet?

Posted on April 3, 2018 in Uncategorized

I sometimes hear from people who want to know for how long they are required to be on the Nutrisystem diet. My response is that this is honestly up to the person asking the question. I am often met with a blank stare or a questioning look. Some people will follow up and ask how this is a decision that is left up to them. Many assume that the diet is one that must be prescribed by a doctor who must also determine the length of the time that he or she is willing to prescribe the diet. Others assume that you have to sign up for or commit to a certain number of months before they can order any meals. Neither of these are true.

The reality is that you don’t have to make any commitment ahead of time on this diet. No one makes the decision about the duration of your experience except for you. There isn’t any prescription or commitment required as you are only purchasing food. And you can do this for any time frame that you wish because you can order on an individual basis or you can order enough to last you a couple of weeks or a month.

Of course, how much food you need is going to depend on how much weight you intend to lose. And some folks will want to have a very specific plan with weekly or monthly weight loss goals and others will want to just take it day by day and evaluate later if they want to keep going. I often find that there are two common approaches to this. Some people like to know what is going to happen and those folks might have a plan to lose say twenty five pounds. And they may decide that losing two pounds per week is doable. So they will figure that this will take them about thirteen weeks or about three months. And they may go ahead and order enough meals to last them for the duration of that estimated time.

Other people will take a different strategy. They may know that they want to lose twenty five pounds but they want the room to evaluate things as they come. So they might place an order for one month of food and have good results. But, they may decide to take a break for a week or two before the place another order. Both strategies can work just fine.

Yet others are lucky only have a small amount of weight to lose and they only need to place one order before they are happy with their results and can continue on with regular foods. I hope that this article has shown you that you don’t have to be on Nutrisystem for any longer than you chose to be. No one is going to force you to commit to anything. It’s simply a situation where you place a food order when you want to be on the diet and you don’t order again when you want to a break or are at a point where you are content with your results.

The diet is meant to be flexible and convenient and since different people start out with different amounts of weight to lose and have different goals, you can make this determination for yourself, although the company does offer a lot of resources to help guide you if you want or need it.

An Overview of the Nutrisystem Diet Plan

Posted on March 26, 2018 in Uncategorized

I get a lot of emails asking about the specifics of Nutrisystem. People want to know how it works, if it works, whether the food tastes good or not, how hungry you will be on it, how quickly the weight comes off, and if the diet is worth the money. In the following article, I’ll offer an overview of the Nutrisystem diet plan in an attempt to answer these questions.

How (And If) Nutrisystem Works: There are several things which I think make this diet work. They are: convenience, variety, education, and hunger control. What I mean by this is that there is not a lot of work for you to do on this diet. You don’t have to count calories or figure anything out. Basically, you eat the foods that they send you and you add in a healthy side item like a piece of fruit or a carton of yogurt with each meal.

The food on this diet is also pretty good. There are not many diets where you can chose cookies, candy bars, cereals and pizza. This company is really committed to developing comfort type foods that are healthy and safe for you to eat when you are trying to lose weight. There are over 120 food choices and they have just come out with their “select” line which includes gourmet frozen foods. In terms of taste and variety, the food on Nutrisystem, at least in my opinion, ranks quite highly.

They also offer you a lot of education about weight loss and a healthy lifestyle. Counseling and coaching is available for free. All you need to do to take advantage of this is to make a food purchase. They really do a good job of offering the information and support that you need to succeed.

This company has been around for over 35 years and the diet was developed by weight loss specialists. You eat five times per day with this plan. There is actually a claim on the company’s website which said that 4 out of 5 dieters surveyed indicated that they were “never hungry” on Nutrisystem. I can’t make that claim because for me there was an adjustment period, but I do have to say that after a few days, I was fine and am quite used to the portion sizes and the frequent eating now.

The company claims that most people lose 2 pounds per week and up on this plan. I’m not sure about others, but I find this to be a pretty conservative estimate. I think it really all depends upon the carb content of the sides that you are adding in, since the foods provided by the company are a variable that doesn’t change.

Also, the foods are high in proteins and fiber. This is done to make you feel full for much longer. And, this combination helps to put your body in ketosis, which is a metabolic state wherein your body burns fat instead of carbohydrates due to the higher amounts of protein that you are taking in. (This is why I think that your results depend in part on the carbohydrate content of the sides that you are adding.)

The Reasonable Cost Of Nutrisystem: For the last several years, Forbes magazine has ranked Nutrisystem as the lowest price popular diet program. Most of the plans on this diet run around $300 or so dollars per month before coupons. This works out to under $3 per meal. Also, they now have the new flex plan (where you take two days off per week) that only runs a little over $200 per month, which brings the cost way down, even though admittedly you are getting less food for your money.

Still, this is even before coupons and once you use them you will often find that you can pay less than you would pay if you were attempting to diet and buy groceries.


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.
