I tried to contact the support on their website, but the system kept shutting down. I chose to eat: I tracked my meals in SparkPeople. Posted by Wanda Ashland at 6: Why I Chose Nutrisystem. I do not work for Nutrisystem. I am trying their product on my own in hopes it addresses some needs I have. Specifically, I need a fast and easy way to learn how to eat properly. My job is very busy and high stress.
I often skip meals and settle for convenience foods or fast foods at the end of the day to fill my hunger. I rarely eat breakfast because I get up and go, go, go. Nutrisystem NS is a low GI plan where meals are ready made for you and shipped once a month. While that sounds like a lot of money especially since I still have to add my own fresh foods, it isn't really. I was spending a lot more than that on the convenience of fast foods. I still grimaced when I paid the bill hoping I wasn't wasting my money.
When the box came, I opened it and counted my meals immediately since I had read on the NS message boards that sometimes the counts are off. I had 28 protein shakes, a shaker bottle, 28 breakfast entrees, 28 lunches, 28 dinners, and 28 snacks skillfully arranged inside a big box with three pull out levels. All of my meals are shelf stable and many use oxygen reducing packaging to keep items fresh.
Also included was a plan program book and meal planner. That doesn't even cover the tip for a restaurant meal. The size of the "meals" is small compared to what I am use to. Portion control is one thing I am hoping to take away from the plan. There is no way that what is given per meal is going to fill me up, but it isn't suppose to! I need to eat more fresh foods. The perk of this is that when I am ravenous, I can go grab a ready to go meal, eat that, and then work on the other meal components.
I am hoping this helps control that impulsive eating I have done in the past. Some of the meal pictures on the label do not look that appetizing either.
While perusing their site when I was waiting for my shipment to arrive, I noticed they have a section where you can enter the meal and it will give you ideas that stay within the program limits of ways to perk up the NS shelf stable meal with your added fresh foods. I am going to be eating six times a day which is also different. Before, I would eat once or twice a day, mostly in the evening.
