An example depletion workout utilizing weight-training can be found Here. It is possible to be in a low level of ketosis in which acetoacetate primarily synthesizes beta-hydroxybutyrate, and does not fall to forming acetone. She is often found serving in a myriad of roles both professionally and in the community. I get to eat three meals a day plus a snack and a dessert. I need more support! I've lost over 90lbs, and I'm not done yet.
Nutritionally, peanuts themselves are virtually identical to natural peanut butter in every way. The only thing the process of making them into peanut butter adds is a small virtually negligible amount of trans fat, so I'm curious about the significant difference in their ratings. Is it just something you didn't delve too deeply into totally understandable or is there something else I don't know about peanut butter that makes it preferable? Kirk sorry I posted as Anonymous My goals are fat loss along with muscle gains.
Would TKD throw me out of ketosis? What is really the best way to lose fat the fastest and gain muscle at the same time. I'm in ketosis for the last week or so. I am a recently diagnosed type 1 diabetic following a very low carb diet. My blood sugar levels are great as a result BUT I am producing ketones most of the time. My doctor is totally opposed to me being on this diet because he thinks it is very dangerous for me to be in ketosis all the time.
A lot of literature on the subject says it's fine for a type 2 diabetic but not type 1. I am desperate to stay on my low carb diet but I don't want to put my health at risk. I would be so grateful for your opinion I have found it super easy to stay on track and lose 30lbs, I am still going strong and totally commited.
I have 11 lbs to go and I will have reached my first goal, I may just keep on going a while longer before I add any calories to maintain. Hi Joseph, What a fantastic article. I looked at so many resources and found yours to be the best combination of overall picture the nitty gritty details. I used to follow the CKD last year and lost 10 kilos. I work out alot at the gym and the CKD has done wonders for me. My question is if I'm not on any training regime and my activity level is just sedentary then would i still have a glycogen re feeding once a week just a single cheat meal?
Do individual who follow the diet with no exercise have a cheat meal once a week? I would appreciate your response or any one on this blog. I stopped training for couple of months. There'd be no point to a cheat meal if you don't lift weights.
I mean maybe psychologically it might help to have one cheat per week, and it might give the false appearance of hastening fat-loss since glucose would act as a diuretic under those conditions which may lift spirits, but other than that it's pointless. The point of a "cheat meal" is to replenish glycogen stores so that one may undergo resistance training in an effort to preserve or even build muscle-mass. To everyone else who have left comments: I'm sorry I haven't been able to respond.
I appreciate you taking the time though. I assume I'm too late and you've already found your answers. Is it worth it? Will I be in a perpetual state of transition and never reach a ketosis state? I was just wondering if you think that keto is feasible for a vegetarian. Also-in regard to getting enough fat, I've read people often use oils like canola oil. This may be a dumb question-but does this mean one can literally just swallow a tablespoon of canola oil to get enough fat?
Thanks for the informative post! I realize this is waaaaaay after you've posted this up, and probably won't get seen, but I had to comment after reading the section you put up there about Alzheimer's. The only reason I'm making this comment is because ALZ research is very near and dear to my heart. While the research you are quoting does support your hypothesis about keto diets and a reduction in ALZ symptoms, the way you have worded your statement is false.
Sorry for being a nitpicker! So, I've lost 90 since May doing the low-carb thing. I absolutely love it, but all of the internet research I've been doing made me fearful that it's unhealthy and it's going to lead to my demise! Thank you for the post I feel better than I have in all of my life, and I want to maintain this! Your post is very informative, resourceful, and certainly one that I am going to bookmark! Hi, I've made a more exact food pyramid from your ratios, here is the reddit discussion about it: We have been taught this abundantly fabricated lie for over 10, years beginning with "Agricultural" boom and more recently in the last years to keep the farmers in the lime-light.
Everything on earth regardless of origin comes from wilted crops, nitrogen-enriched soils and harsh living conditions. I have done every validated, reasonable, healthy, diet-crash, impossible "what the hell are you doing" diets that there has been in the past decade and none have made me feel more energetic, more focused, and more healthy than this.
Granted, I don't eat processed meats, cheeses, mayonnaise, nitrated meats, but I do enjoy everything else under the sun. I did this diet consistently for 6 weeks and had my levels checked. My overall cholesterol was "", my resting glucose levels were above average, and my hydration level were off the charts.
Though I don't agree with these numbers, "MAN" wasn't meant to be fat and overweight. It defies genetics and adaptation and creates an alarming rate of diseases that we're seeing now. Stick this for as long as you can and make sure you stay active.
When you get to the point to where you "just want more"- whether it be from foods, exercise, etc. This will STILL keep you in ketosis because your body will use the readily available energy immediately without overturning your ketones.
That's my 2 cents. Hi, Very informative piece! Do you have any information on this diet with respect to having hypothyroidism? I am taking meds to control hypothyroidism, and wonder how successful I would be in losing weight that I've gained since being diagnosed.
Thanks for this wealth of information! Hi Joseph, Great Blog! I started the Diet about a week ago, just wondering what signs should i look for to know my body is "fat adapted", i know you said days. Thank you for all the detail!
I found the testimonials especially helpful to me. As someone who's been on this diet for the past 3 months, I can say that it definitely works but you do hit plateaus if you're not careful.
Love Love Loved this information!! My eyes have been opened to a whole new way of thinking and eating. I just started my induction 3 days ago and I have already lost a few lbs. My only problem with following this plan, that I can forsee, is Alcohol. I am a social drinker and, although, I plan to make a conscious effort to leave it alone for a month or so, realistically telling myself that I will just "not drink" any more would be a lie.
I have done a little research on the carb count in various alcoholic beverages and found that gin, vodka, and rum have 0 carbs and thought this may be alternative if mixed with a diet soda or other no carb beverage. I wonder if you had any thoughts on the subject? I started keto on Monday, but am somehow concerted about the vitamin intake. Which vitamins in particular I should look for in a supplement, being on keto?
Excellent overview of ketosis. I am restarting a K diet after some time off; I did not feel good off ketosis. I seem to be very sensitive to any carb foods and have to monitor carefully. I see how this sensitiviy has increased with age. I sleays heard that your metabolism slows down and most people put on weight as they get into older years as in over 55 , and I can attest to this for myself, so even if in youbger days a person seems to "get away with" eating more carbs, I believe there is accumulated damage that eventually creates both weight and health problems.
I like how you've stolen most of this post from the bodybuilding. Joseph are you even on this thing anymore? Like most of you, I hate seeing his name because it's on everything related to ketosis, yet, it's very brief and basic information for those of us that hate to read Supposedly, a ketogenic diet is not meant to be sustained indefinitely nor is it a good approach for longevity as the body will begin to become more and more sensitive to insulin through longer periods how this makes sense I have no idea.
How can the body become MORE sensitive to insulin if bloodsugar is regulated at homeostasis and insulin is never truly "activated"? AND- to produce the results that one is looking to achieve on a diet such as Ketogenic fat loss at least grams of protein should be consumed as an average per day 0. Don't get all math-contra on me. When people reference things it's pretty much up for pure analytical tyranny: All I'm saying is if you want to be physically active and dwindle your body fat down-down-down, ketosis in all categories seems to be the best bet I'm going to be doing a 6mo trial of stictly SKD with DC training to see if my theory is right, that everyone is created differently and some things work differently than others Joseph, would you mind if I posted here of the current progress?
Really cleared up a lot of things I was unsure of. It is however quite difficult for me to get through the initial adaptation period and I have this fear of low serotonin levels as someone who suffers from depression. What's the deal with tryptophan levels under ketosis? How is the brain obtaining serotonin without the insulin spikes of carbohydrates?
I drink and like girls but I also can solve the Schrodinger equation without getting an F: I'm a crossfitter so I can't do full keto or I'd die in our workouts I've tried for a 5 week stink and cut my weight from down to well now 3 months later but I had to bring my carbs up to a moderate carb range and I still find myself in keto some days when we have a high metcon based workout Either way I'm curious to see your results as it always great to learn more from what other experiace.
I think it's probably true that ketosis is not meant to be sustained indefinitely. Probably our ancestors cycled through periods of ketosis and glycolysis. Feel free to post your progress here. Though I don't check this page as regularly as I used to so I might not respond in a timely manner, but it seems others are curious as well, so yeah.
That's a question that I'd be interested in learning more about. I'm not familiar with the biochemistry of serotonin. Given that everything you write is true I still don't really see a problem; insulin is still just as readily produced and active under ketosis; you just don't get a relatively acute production of it as you do with the ingestion of sugars.
You are a genius and have helped me put on muscle, strength, endurance and size keep up the damn good posts Find me on Facebook. I also have been in contact with Ellen of www. I like being a big guy. I've been thin with a tiny neck before and I looked like Mr. Garrison "M'kay" and hated it.
I packed on the weight and lifted the world and got to where I am today. Big, Chubby, and full of smiles. I'm not afraid to admit that I've fallen off the wagon and have had trouble sticking with a diet regimen longer than 12wks Lyle said it himself that not enough studies have been done on the athlete and a pure ketogenic diet.
Feel free to email me any time guys on any questions or ideas or suggestions: I hope you all have a wonderful week and enjoy yourselves!
Man I know all too well how crossfit compares to the rest of the world. It was a brutal epilogue for about 7 weeks straight. My buddy was ex-special forces and we did hero workouts everday for 31 days straight. I never did so many deadlifts in my life. I will keep this updated daily if you don't mind me intruding. I have just spoken with Ellen from ketogenic-diet-resource and she is interested in how this adaptation will work, and is queing me on what approach to take in a full ketosis atmosphere.
I'll be doing this as well as DC Training for 12 weeks- hell or high water. Tonight is day 1. Fasting 16hrs from a refeed weekend yum this will be an onslaught of destruction and detour to get my glycogen out and begin Krime.
I will let you know of my food, training, and feeling daily. Hey Guys, For some reason my last 2 posts were unsuccessful. I'm staying within my range of carbohydrates although I've read on "livin la vida low carb" it states that anything under could induce ketosis in some cases and sticking with my protein requirements for 12 weeks.
I'm keeping wine in my routine ; my wife won't let me NOT drink with her. But giving up sugar and starches are ok. That puts me roughly in the lean body mass but that was last week. I took a week off from the gym and consistency so that puts us at a "Square One" I'll update tonights training and body comp tomorrow. Thanks again Joe for letting me post here: I just checked and for some reason your comments were being caught in the spam filter. Maybe because you were posting links.
In any case I marked them as non-spam. Keep up the great work. Last night was a bit off-keel. I've been IF for the week and eating a big meal at night, kind of like a Warrior Diet approach. I've been dwindling my carbohydrates slowly so by the end of the week I will be in the ratios mentioned above by our good friend Arcita. I weighed myself last night at I fear that I may have already lost a little bit of muscle mass but that could be to the caloric restriction and depletion these past few days so I'm not worried.
My main, number one focus is fat loss, and as we all know you cannot serve two masters so I'm going to pay homage to that philosophy and get down to a base stock. I'll check my bodyfat levels tonight and update in the morning. The rest of this week will be dedicated to harnessing ratios and rest.
Keep up the great work everyone! Hi I recently started a low-carb diet and after 2 weeks i think i have just gone past the adaption process.
My question is, does it matter if i eat A LOT of fat foods cheese, cream, etc.. I understand fat fills you in faster hence many people don't feel the need to eat as much DC Training is intense- to put it lightly. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the principle, I recommend reading up on the anabolic minds website under Dogg Crapp Training. Wednesday looked like this: The "xreps" are half reps done to engage the sacroplasmic expansion when the myofibrils are absolutely destroyed.
Today is "B1" day and I will update you tomorrow on that big guy. No headaches, no crashes, no fatigue, just feeling really good so far. This week has been crazy- every tween in the world is at my house for summer vacation. Ketosis is going great! Strength has not dropped a lick. Then I stuffed my face with sundried tomatoes and chicken thighs covered in oil. Some say fat's no good after a workout- I say "get the hell out of my way": I do what I want. Ok- so week 1 wrapping up and feeling great.
I'm sure that will change come week 3 haha! Curious as to what you guys think- Should one solely focus on the deprevation of carbs for fat utilization as energy, or fight the good fight with training and TKD to optimize both?
If you care about muscle preservation then go for a TKD. If you just want to lose weight as quickly as you can with as little effort as you need to put forth then go for a SKD. Thank you guys so much for the feed back. I dunno- I understand that CHO's incorporate and recruit "new" muscle fibers to recoop and repair, but to what degree and to what "true" percentage of the bout honestly.
I like being a big guy honestly, but not a big soft guy. I feel that I am an above average athletic individual who has a pretty decent inability to process insulin for energy breakdown. I did Burn the Fat Feed the Muscle for a month and lost about 3lbs and my composition didn't change much at all.
I did Ori's Warrior Diet for one week and saw 5x the body composition change by eating at night and starving throughout the day. I did MB's IF Leangains and had HORRIBLE stomach issues from consuming a gigantic amount of food all at once kudos to those who can manage-ick and I stumbled upon JA's Keto blog and did that for a month- and saw the best of all three worlds combined, with no cravings, no hunger, and strength continuing to pile up through the roof.
I will take this to the heavens if I can: This week was my "down week" or my cruise or however you want to call a deload phase. My energy continues to amaze me and I haven't had any fogginess as of yet. I'm going to mark 30days from today as being my "let's see if I'm adapted" phase and then from there, give myself another 30days of training as I am sure I will be in full-ketosis by then, and can judge how well I feel and how well my training is going at that point and time.
However, after speaking with numerous entities in the keto world, some mention as high as g of CHO still allowing ketosis with the benefit of ATP for workouts and some say 'forget' that fat also allows ATP but to beware of gluconeogenesis as that will hinder any fat utilization process if my protein levels are too high Right on Joseph, really appreciate this broken down information.
I have been studying the basics of Ketosis over the last 6 months as I am partnering with a doctor to star a metabolism and weight management clinic.
I went on a keto diet for a month back in the beginning of the year so I could experience and understand the keto protocol at a deeper level. I have never felt better in my adult life While I have never struggled with being very fat, I have always wanted to perfect my bodybuilding efforts.
I am getting ready to head back into a keto diet but now more as a permanent lifestyle. I read your bits in the article about building muscle mass while in keto and will use those as a starting point.
I would appreciate more advice or direction to resources that might be helpful in my quest to live in a keto state, while achieving an anabolic state for muscle mass development. What are your thoughts there? From what I have read, it's enough to make me seek to live in a keto state for my overall health and longevity.
Very informative article, used the cambridge diet to getinto ketosis, for 2 weeks Now my issue is that i want to continue lossinf the weight my challenge is that i live in african were most of the foods are staple food,and the food we have here are very diff from ur suggestion list , so pls can u suggest a better list for the african readers Thanks michelle. Before I began this "venture"- I saw everything from carb cycling to carb 'back-loading' which in itself isn't a bad idea.
It's taken a VERY, very long time to get this through my beautifully thick skull. But alas, that ship has finally left port and on its greatest navigation yet. Ketosis is and has always been like math "always proving and never changing". The weight will always be there, the exercises you love will never go away, you just need to do your Freshman year of fitness the way that everybody else did Day 1- Shred Me Today is the beginning of the rest of my life.
A goal in vain is a goal never obtained. That's where I was a month or so ago Crazy where time goes. I recently demoted my previous psyche and drafted a confident, true blooded determinor destined for greatness.
My goal is to: Weight Training will be reps, 4 exercises per body group, in a traditional M-F split due to time and availability of doing cardio post training Creatine and BCAA will be taken between meals, pre and post training. If you can, I would love to be held accountable and be "kept track of" during this short term goal so any feedback on my personal email would be great- if you guys and gals can find the time.
I'll post pre-progress pics tomorrow morning when I get in- Thank you for any support! And thank You Joseph for keeping this feed open!
So far- so strong: I am 50 and in Menopause. I do cheat a little on weekends. I have always stayed as clear from fats trans and saturated as possible.
I eat health fats though. I drink things like almond milk and I love eggs, lean meats, and even fish. I teach Zumba twice a week as well as four other routines. Outside of that I perform weight training three days per week and I drink a whey shake with Almond milk unsweetened after that. Will this diet breakthrough the way my body is storing fat to replace the lost estrogen or will I just be wasting my time?
I've tried so many things and spent so much money My arms and legs are fairly shapely, but I have a 31 inch waist! I would love for someone to do a study with menopausal women who want to be really fit!! I'd be first in line! Skip to the end of this link. A ketone diet can raise the acetone content in the body,with scary consequences.
Hydration is essential for those in ketosis, liters of liquids daily takes care of acetone build up and the bad breath or body odor. I'm willing to try the diet. Heck I've tried everything else: Visalius--lost 3 lbs in six weeks: I tried it again not on hormones and within two months I gained it all back.
I am willing to try things, but being healthy is important to me. I really don't want to get sick trying something. I work out HARD. Burpees, push ups, squat jumps,running and Zumba, etc. Everyone keeps telling me because I'm 50 I have to 'learn to live' with a 31 inch waist line and I have to 'accept' that I am not 25 anymore. Okay, I accept I am older, but why can't I get results for what I am willing to do???
Basically what I am hearing is 'give up! I am a doctor of health education, which basically means I seek out ways to teach overall health. This is intriguing to me and I'd like to try it. I have NO health problems and I'm up for anything healthy. Is this for me Sounds like you might be insulin resistant, and that makes weight loss very tough. I speak from experienc. I stay in ketosis most of the time, and have justnordered a blood ketosis meter to maximize the ketone production.
What does the series of yellow stars after the coconut oil mean? Just started Keto diet this week, Thanks for the great information!! Yes, I too would like to know what the yellow stars mean, after the coconut oil and also after eggs. What do the stars mean? I was initially going to rate each item on a scale of 1 to 5 stars based on several factors, but I never finished this. Sorry for the confusion.
I suggest the keto subforum on bodybuilding. Interesting about the role of accumulation of glycation on proteins in diabetes. Reading about it now. As long as you maintain an energy deficit for a sufficient period of time, you should see results. Keto might make this maintenance easier. Give it a try. Looks like a pretty decent workout. I thought you said you were doing crossfit? I am curious about the role of artificial sweetners and ketosis.
Thanks very much for this article, I found it both informative and interesting. I've cycled low carb diets for many years after reading such books as 'Hard to Stomach' and 'Breaking the viscious cycle', not for weight loss as such, but for health reasons. I've had IBS and Colitis for over 10 years and instinctively found that low carb diets helped me when the doctors said they wouldn't make a difference.
I've also always enjoyed weight training and always made the mistake of slipping back into old eating habits because I felt that to gain muscle I had to eat carbs everyday. As a result my health always deteriorated again. I now realise that my 'low carb' days probably weren't even that, I was cutting out grains but still having 2x bananas a day, some grape juice and some sweet potato. My question is this: During this 1 month phase of zero or very very low carb eating to correct my health issues, I understand that I should concentrate on resting and getting better.
To help maintain muscle mass during this period would it be wise to do a couple of full body weight training workouts per week, or would this really have a bad effect whilst on zero carb?
I suggest to all- do your research. The key is, that our bodies, from years of abuse, are primarily geared to store fat in the form of toxins from excess sugars and are almost insulin resistant. This is what we want to correct and avoid in the future. There are many benefits to carbohydrates of course, but for what you need vs what you use them for, are not required.
Do you 'need' 3 pieces of toast? Does your body require that many grams to efficiently produce ATP to create energy for your fitness? Actually your body doesn't need them at all if you want to be 'technical'.
But the more active you are and want to be, the more they become a part of your life. If you want your body to be efficient at burning fat, lay off of sugar, alcohol, artificial sweeteners sans sucralose-only one that does not engage in an insulin response in your body and anything that resembles a grain I believe there are over that fall into this category.
Use your fruits, veggies and tubers. Dope yourself with heavy caffeine mg to activate your mTOR, and go do something. The more active you are, the better your body will respond to food. Keto is necessary to kick start antiobesity, but it's not a necessary way of life to always try to consume less than 30g of carbs. Reward yourself when you start seeing progress. Your Partner in Krime- Bradley. Where can you find a ketogenic diet food list like the type used for seizures I have the one for the mct oil diet but it allows things that aren't allowed on the other I use tbsp mct oil daily if you wanted to fast a patial day how much fluid would you need to consume when first started diet was told could fast hours by neuro but this would be done at home again forgot how I did it the first time would something likee heavy cream mixed with unsweetened chocolate and water with meds be okay several of meds contain things like cornstarch any help would be greatly appreciated CNW.
Rumored to be detrimental to T3 production by the Thyroid gland though sugarfreesheila has been doing it for 12 years and doesn't seem to have any health issues - Artificial Sweeteners: Consume at your own risk. It's nice to have every now and again. Don't think too much into it. Alcohol gets digested at 7 calories per ounce though, wheat gluten , is an opiate so stay away from Alcohol with anything remotely sweet or you'll regret it the day after. Your body supposedly stops digestion of other macros to eliminate the poisonous presence of ethanol, so if you are going to drink, make it the last thing on your list that night Some sooner, some longer, it all depends on genetics and your body's sensitivity to insulin an how long you're on the internet lol.
Wait hrs until your first meal, and eat a very hefty plate of meat and fat stay away from nitrates people, why are you doing this to yourself? Do this for your first 5 days and then begin eating small meals a day. Save it for one meal who cares, just eat.
Learn to be full. Learn how to listen to satiety. OH- and a side note to help you learn to enjoy your new journey "Fat is the only macro-nutrient that doesn't create fat spill-over INTO fat cells". Honestly- you just have to. If you want it bad enough, you will find away. Hell I'm married to a gourmet chef and have two little girls who think sugar is God's gift to the earth No support group there haha- and how do I do it?
Because I know if I can't face those temptations and beat them as little as they are, how can I combat the inner demon that makes me weak and thinks food is the answer? Maybe it used to be and to a lot of us it still is, but control beats temptation every time.
Do it for yourself so you can attain that sensational you that is just beneath the surface. Friends are too few and far between for all of us. If you ever want to chat or get some good feedback, email me anytime at blue. When considering carb intake for the day do we use Total Carbs or Net Carbs? Any idea of why blood ketones may go down after exercise? Maybe an insulin response during exercise??
I have marginal blood ketones with the highest ever being around 1. This sounds great with the greens! And, if they're lucky, that's even better.
The orange and sesame dressing is lovely too. Hi, Sarel from South Africa here. I did cyclical keto a few times in the past with some success but always had a off day over weekends. This was due to me thinking that I would not be able to stay in ketosis and have a few drinks.
Much to my surprise I stayed in the first time I tried it and have been in ketosis for 11 weeks now. My aim in the beginning was to lose fat and I've lost 15kg 33lbs. What I wasn't expecting was the deep sense of wellness I started experiencing after about 4 weeks. I would like to ask you opinion about a few of these.
I used to suffer from insomnia, it completely disappeared in about 5 weeks. I now sleep about 3 hours a night less and wake up in the morning feeling refreshed. I also stopped snoring, probably due to weight loss. My work productivity also received a significant boost.
No more afternoon sluggishness and mood-swings are a thing of the past. Last night I noticed something amazing though. I am have significantly less grey hair than what I used to. Only noticed it because I let my beard grow for about a week. I had a ring of whiskers around my chin that was in the process of going completely white. Well there is not one grey to be seen. I do however have a few negatives. I have a skin rash on my arms that seems to fluctuate from being just visible to being a little itchy.
My lymphatic nodes are swollen all over my body but especially in my arms an neck and I have constantly stiff neck muscles this is new. I also have a vague feeling of my kidneys " being there " for lack of a better description.
No pain but not normal either. I find that when I have my own food that I like and because I am rarely hunger now, that the temptation to cheat is just not there. I also love most of the desserts, but who doesn't: Five years ago I lost 62 lbs on NS, but over the years I gained back 38 lbs.
Now I am back on the system and intend to stay until I reach my goal weight. My co-worker is using Jenny Craig but it was just to cost prohibitive for me.
I've tried her meals and honestly didn't think they were as tasty as Nutrisystems are. Just 65 Pounds Left To Go 4 out of 5 stars.
I am on my 10th day on Nutrisystem and I absolutely love it! The food is great and a lot better tasting than Jenny Craig. I have lost 8 pounds so far and am really excited. I have 65 more to go to reach my goal weight. The website is full of good information and tons of motivation which I need and love!! Anyone can do this diet. At 32 years old, I had surpassed pounds and went on a diet with Slimfast Shakes and low fat dinners that I made.
I was single at the time and had the time to prepare my own meals and exercise vigorously for about an hour 5 days a week. Needless to say, I did lose 40 lbs in 3 months, but it was hard work and I was always hungry. I'm now 40 years old now and after several failed starts I decided to give Nutrisystem a go.
Being married with 2 children, my time is much more limited now. Nutrisystem is perfect for this reason as I don't have to count calories — it's all done online for me. The meals are reasonably good and you can pretty much choose the meals you want. The first month I went with the default menu and selected the meals I liked best for the second and third month.
I'm following the menu strictly and my caloric intake is around calories a day. All in all, I have been on the diet for 42 days and I have lost 23 lbs and 3 inches off my waist! This program is well worth it! I needed to go on a diet. I had gained 25 pounds over the last year and I could not fit into any of my clothes. I did not want to go buy a whole new wardrobe when I already had a perfectly good one. With Nutrisystem I have access to a website that allows me to track my weight loss progress.
I enjoy logging onto the website and seeing how far I have come. I also get support from the website. I enjoy almost all of the foods Nutrisystem has to offer.
They all taste pretty good. The best part of Nutrisystem is that I have lost weight with a program that is extremely easy to follow. I liked many aspects of the diet; however, I thought the food portions were too small. Maybe I'm too used to supersizing everything? The Nutrisystem plan does work though. When I was using the plan I lost about fifteen pounds. The plan was also very easy to follow. I did not have to weigh out food. I did not have to count calories.
I did not have to figure out which foods to eat to lose weight. I just had to follow the instructions that came with the plan and eat the food that the plan provided me with.
When I joined the Nutrisystem plan I also received 24 hour access to the Nutrisystem web site where I could chat with someone for support daily if I needed to. Haven't used it, but its nice to know its there for me. The food was just as tasty as pre-cooked frozen meals you buy in the grocery store. I enjoyed many of the foods that Nutrisystem offers. The desserts and snacks were delicious. The dinners are done very nicely with foods that are very tasteful and full of flavor.
The breakfasts were good I especially liked the pancakes. The lunches were also good. The thing I did not like about Nutrisystem was that the portions of foods they provided were too small. The program is extremely easy to use. Any man can join the program and expect to lose weight easily. I joined the plan and Nutrisystem sent me dieting tools, instructions on how to use the plan and great tasting foods.
I also have access to Nutrisystems website. The website includes chat rooms, blogs, and group discussions about dieting. The website is a great place for me to go to receive support. I have not felt this energetic in awhile. I now have the energy to get through the day without feeling so tired. I even have enough energy to work out. Without the Nutrisystem plan I would still be overweight, unhealthy and unhappy. Without Nutrisystem I would still be eating unhealthy and gaining weight instead of losing weight.
I joined Nutrisystem two and a half months ago. When I first started the program it was an adjustment I had to get used to.
I was used to overeating all of the time. With Nutrisystem the food portions are designed to be just right so a person gets the nutrition he needs and still loses weight. I had to get used to eating the right sized portion instead of overeating. Once I adjusted to eating differently the plan started to really work.
The plan is easy to follow and comes with instructions on how to do so. I am losing weight easily. I am feeling healthier every day. I am enjoying the foods I am eating, and I am enjoying the compliments I am receiving on my weight loss. I joined the Nutrisystem plan because I knew I was headed in the wrong direction with my body weight. I decided to start going to a gym.
However, I did not know how to start eating right. I pick the food I want to eat from the menu that Nutrisystem provides. Nutrisystem also shows me how to plan what to eat for the day. The foods are really good. I love some of them, like most of them and only disliked one or two items out of the whole menu. One of my favorite foods from Nutrisystem is their Mexican style tortilla soup, it's great.
As far as diets go Nutrisystem is a great plan. When I was on the Nutrisystem plan it worked for me. I lost weight, learned to eat healthier and felt great. Nutrisystem is also extremely easy to follow. The plan comes with easy to follow instructions on how to use the program to work for you. When I was on the plan my wife and children would eat their food while I ate my Nutrisystem food. Her food was hard to resist; however, I stuck to the Nutrisystem plan because their food also tastes good.
I ate good food every day. Foods such as blueberry pancakes, blueberry muffins, honey mustard pretzel sticks, beef stew and broiled beef patties. Nutrisystem truly does go to great lengths to help make losing weight easy.
I wanted to lose 20 pounds, but ended up shaving off 30 pounds thanks to Nutrisystem. Nutrisystem is the best diet plan I have ever tried.
I have tried to diet a few other times in my life but I could not stick to the diet. With Nutrisystem I do not have to learn recipes. I do not have to learn to eat better foods. I do not have to count calories. I do not have to weigh food. With Nutrisystem all I have to do is follow the instructions and eat the foods Nutrisystem supplies. When I joined Nutrisystem I was afraid the food would taste terrible as I had read a review online saying so.
Of course there are a few foods that do not suit my taste such as the eggs frittata; however, most of the foods are delicious. For breakfast I can eat pancakes, blueberry pancakes, cinnamon buns or oatmeal. There are many other breakfast foods to choose from also. For lunch I can eat hearty minestrone soup or choose from many other menu items. Nutrisystem also offers great dinners, snacks and desserts. Following the Nutrisystem plan is easy and I am seeing results. I wish the weight melted off easier, but it took a while putting it on and so I expect it'll take time getting it off too.
I had tried losing weight on my own a few times but it was too hard to count calories and weigh out all of my food what a time sucker! I always got discouraged about losing the weight. With Nutrisystem I have not became discouraged because Nutrisystem makes the plan so simple to follow.
