I will keep you posted on next weeks weigh in! Ok, here's my input: I have tried every diet out there-seriously. Nutrisystem was horrible for me. I didn't like the food I rememeber one soup smelled exactly like dog food. I stuck to it for 2 weeks tho and didn't lose anything.
I knew that I could not rely on pre-packaged foods and the only way I would be happy and get my healthy foods in would be WW.
It has the highest success rate for people losing and keeping it off, plus it's one that doctors will always recommend.
I started in January and down 35lbs already. I can eat and drink what I want-which is the reality of life anyway, not eating pre-packaged foods! My opinion is if you try WW and it does nothing for you, then you din't follow the program exactly how you are supposed to.
Lastly, to lose healthy you should lose no more than 2 lbs a week. Slow but steady winds the race! You can lose fast other ways but it WILL come back. I have lost 7 lbs so far. I did a typo in my previous message of I am happy with this program. I like the idea of no measuring food out.
I know exactly what to eat to get my calories in. I really think this program teaches you portion control so when you do go back to eating the regular foods you know how much you should eat.
I have been eating very healthy I also feel very good. I have tried WW before and it didn't work for me. Not to say other people wouldn't have success For me though I think this is the way to go right now.
I am doing it for 3 months and then going on maintenenance. Actually NS has lots of recipes and stuff for when you do maintenance to keep you within the calorie limits also.
So far this is the only thing I have tried where I actually am losing every week and at a healthy loss of about 2 lbs a week! Good luck to you! Last edited by lam; at Iam, I'm not surprised that you're happy with NutriSystem. What's not to be happy about? It's something new and exciting and you're losing weight! It's probably like a vacation too, from having to fix a meal from scratch. Here comes the big however.
The truly important thing is the long term result. I remember when Oprah Winfrey was on NutriSystem. It was played up as the greatest thing going.
After being on it for a long time, she came out on stage one day looking really great thin waistline etc. But what does she look like today?
I no longer watch TV but from magazine pictures she appears to be quite large again. In my opinion, it falls under the heading of "fad diet" and fad diets don't work in the long run. That doesn't mean that you shouldn't enjoy it for the time being. Just be cautious in what you expect for the long run.
Your post caught my eye. I have been on Nutrisystem for almost three weeks and have lost a little over 5 pounds. I am only planning on being on the plan for 28 days with a goal of losing a total of 10 pounds. It has taught me to look at portion sizes in a whole new light. I have become a fan of sugerfree gelatin and drink mixes.
The big thing for me is the mixing of protein, fruit and vegetables in a certain order. I also plan to use prepackaged foods available in the supermarket to replace the Nutrisystem entrees later. I hope I can mention this on this board because something else has become a huge help in logging my weight daily. If impact is a problem, the stationary bicycle may be a better choice than the treadmill.
More muscle use equals more calorie burn. The basic rule of thumb is that the machine that exercises the greatest muscle mass burns the most calories.
There's a flip side of that coin, too: If you're a beginner, using more muscles means getting fatigued sooner -- which will result in burning fewer calories. Try using a pre-programmed workout that includes variations in speed and intensity. Or vary those factors yourself during your workout.
There are so many things you can do to make it more interesting. Work out for time. Instead of forcing yourself to stay on one piece of equipment when you're bored or uncomfortable, just give yourself a time goal at the gym, says Stamford. For example, give yourself 30 minutes to get your workout in. Then break it up any way you want — say, 10 minutes each on the treadmill and bike, followed by 10 on the elliptical machines. If you're still feeling chipper, go for 5 or 10 more minutes on the machine of your chice.
Even if you love one particular machine, you don't have to use it every time. Because these results are based on averages, he explains, they "are about as accurate as rolling the dice and multiplying eye color times shoe size.
Be a creature of habit. We brush our teeth every morning and every night, Vukovich tells his students. It's a habit, a routine, something we do every day. Exercise should be that way too, he says. So instead of setting yourself up for failure with all sorts of requirements, set less lofty goals at first, if it means you can meet them, says Alexander.
Never begin a new exercise regimen without getting the approval of your doctor. Losing weight, eating a healthy diet and getting regular exercise can help you manage NASH. Regular medical care is also needed to control the effects of this disease.
