For about six years, NutriSystem kits have been available at Walmart in the diet and diabetic areas of the store. The owner recently expanded its line of products to include breakfast bars, shakes, and multi-day kits. It is designed to address the whole person, their health, mind and physical weight goals. Its website notes that NutriSystem continues to strive to embody the national guidelines for dietary intake.
This means focusing on fat, sodium, sugar, cholesterol and fiber consumption. Physical activity is a part of the program also. They are sold on three tiers called Basic, Core, and Select. Basic — This plan consists of a pre-selected menu of NutriSystem foods which is not customizable. The Core plan can be customizable and includes access to counselors. Finally, the Select plan consists of frozen foods and access to counselors. There is a plan D of NutriSystem for men. Participants are required to buy their own fruit, vegetables and dairy products to go with meal plans.
Customers who have had success with the program will also serve as spokespersons for any media promotions. Anthony Fabricatore, clinical psychologist, and head of the Nutrisystem Research and Development team.
It is important to note that there really is no such thing as a magic bullet when it comes to weight loss. People need to address their psychological and emotional triggers as well. The physical act of eating is only but a small portion of the weight loss journey. My weight loss journey is on and popping. Anywho, I pre-planned my entire week down to the number of calories. LOL I like to plan things out so I am not just grabbing things or standing in the refrigerator door waiting for something to jump out at me.
I am about to lose my mind, but we will chat about that next week. I was talking to a friend and he asked me what was I eating. I am sure for a second he thought I lost my mind.
The number of meals I have to eat per day is a tad problematic for me. I am the queen of one meal per day, so telling me I have to eat five times per day will get you a major side-eye. Heck, it almost made me faint. Eating this much is stressful! LOL I noticed after a few days of eating more often that I started getting hungry more during the day.
Before I started Nutrisystem, I rarely got hungry because my metabolism was slow. This chick is tripping! At the end of the week, I was down 4.
I will say the most calories I had in a day during the Fast 5 phase was calories. I exercised during the Fast 5 period and I did not feel sick or light-headed. If you are used to eating more calories, please speak to your doctor before starting the Fast 5 program. Overall, this part of the process was easy breezy. I liked most of the items with the muffins being my favorites, and I did have to spice up the dinner selections to my liking.
The lunch items, in the round containers, have a processed food flavor that caught me off guard. The one item that I did not care for was the Energi-zing shakes. I could taste the artificial sweetener and I believe I could taste the caffeine power in the shakes. The Craving Crusher shakes were much better and did not have the same after taste as the Energi-zing shakes. I heard Nutrisytem is testing a fresh whole food box in California.
So far so good! See ya next Friday to see how this week went for my first regular week on Nutrisystem. Dang, I just realized I forgot to take a starting picture. I will do that this afternoon. Please feel free to chat about your Weight Watcher experience…curious to know more. I tried the deal from QVC in January.
