If you're looking for a "diet", I'm sure it is OK, you will lose pounds.. If you are looking to create a healthy menu to support a fitness lifestyle it is really not the best way to go.

Wife is doing it. The NutriSystem plan also heavily uses the Glycemic Index as a way of determining whether or not a food should be included in a particular diet. The creators of the diet stress that it is a great way to support already healthy blood sugar levels and only take in carbs that will be broken down slowly by the body. They feel too that by increasing intake of these particular carbohydrates you will also at the same time increase your intake of protein and fibre since these nutrients often come along with low GI carbohydrates.

There are six different programs that you choose between including Women's, Men's, Silver for Women, Silver for Men, a vegetarian option, and more. With each plan you will get a menu and a checklist so you always know what you should be eating and when you should be eating it. They also recommend an intake of at least 4. While this plan does provide a decent balance of the three major macronutrients, proteins , carbs and fats , there really isn't anything special about it.

You likely can lose weight on this plan, especially since all your foods will be monitored. The downside however is if you enjoy home cooked meals - since you likely won't be getting many on this diet. Granted some individuals may really love the foods that NutriSystem provides but if you enjoy the actual cooking process, this part might be lost on you. Furthermore, as stated earlier, since you are not cooking any of your own foods, this program isn't really teaching you how to eat healthfully on your own without the direction of their menus.

Since the menus are quite varied though you will likely be getting all your major nutrients, plus they don't take fat intake too low, which is a good thing. The recommendation for plenty of fruits and vegetables also ensures that you will get plenty of vitamins as well.

You also get free access to dietitians and counselors. Fitness and nutritional needs vary for both men and women. Considering this fact, NutriSystem has designed individual plans for men and women separately. This helps the men in losing weight healthily without facing those hunger pangs. This is a specially designed plan for vegetarians.

All the meals and snacks of this plan include good carbohydrates and protein. The NutriSystem diet program is low in carbohydrates and rich in protein.

Food at NutriSystem tastes good. In addition, to make it even tastier, you can add your choice of cereals and muffins, as well as oatmeal to the meals. When you are dieting with NutriSystem, it will never make you feel that you are under weight-loss diet program. Other than breakfast, lunch and dinner, the company is offering desserts, snacks and shakes as well. All in all, almost all the food items offered in the diet program are tasty and the existing customers of the program are very happy with the taste.
