Cinnamon streusel muffin, double chocolate muffin, granola cereal, honey wheat bagel and a peanut butter granola bar. If you are thinking of trying the plan but are afraid that you will not like the food please stop worrying. My girlfriend can't keep her hands off of my new slimmer waist ;- She is so proud of me and she thinks I look great. Unlike Medifast, the food is delicious. I thought for sure when I started the plan that I would probably have at least one thing to complain about it; however, I was wrong.
About 10 years ago I was able to lose 40 pounds on my own. The weight has slowly creeped back on and I have not been able to get it off, even with moderate exercise a lot of days. So, out of frustration, I looked to the first plan I've ever tried. In 5 days without cheating, I went down about pounds.
Not a huge amount, but enough to see the scale move in the right direction. I bought another kit and am continuing. I have high blood pressure and was concerned about eating more sodium then I normally do, but I checked my blood pressure and it hasn't seemed to change for the worse.
I think the added weight I am carrying is a far worse problem. After reading some reviews, I expected the food to taste horrible. To my surprise, I have enjoyed everything except the chicken Alfredo. I normally do not eat many desserts, so it is nice to have the deserts in this kit. You do need to have your own foods in addition to this plan. I'm having a small salad at lunch along with vegetables - a mixture of broccoli cauliflower and carrots. I measure them in a measuring cup.
The Nutrisystem shakes are also quite good. I'll either have one of those and a medium apple or something like Greek yogurt that is nonfat with blueberries. I have yet to be hungry and I am eating more than am used to eating.
Basically, you eat the nutrisystem breakfast item, a snack of a protein and smart carb before lunch you provide these , then lunch with your sides like I mentioned above, afternoon protein and smart carb, then dinner with your sides and you get a small dessert item.
I am extremely pleased. If I continue to lose, I will pick up the full program and customize my entrees. I read on the nutrisystem forums where you can buy a Nutrisystem gift card at a discount online from Costco even without a membership.
According to the forums, if you are not a member they put a four dollar surcharge on it. However, I have not tried this personally yet. But I plan to. You can find out more about this on the Nutrisystem forums. Again, the meals have all been very edible to me. Some things, were really quite tasty. I just didn't like any of the Alfredo. I've bought the men's kit for my husband to try also from walmart. Do check online and see if your Walmart carries the kits first. They are not in all the stores.
Where I live, some Walmarts have plenty of them and others have a limited stock or not at all. As for someone who has not been able to budge the scale, due to menopause and a medication I take that causes weight gain, I am quite pleased with a 2 to 3 pound weight loss in five days.
However I had done her DVDs in the past in pretty often-so it is not like I'm doing anything out of the ordinary by doing by doing them. You see how to eat proper portions.
This program does teach portion control. It shows you what a correct serving, which is very important. You just have to use common sense when you go off of the plan and eat the right food and portions.
Chances are if you eat a lot of pasta during the week pasta dishes in this plan and a dessert every day at a certain age you will gain weight unless you have exceptional metabolism. After all, I am trying to lose weight again because even though I ate healthy food-I ate too much at some point or I wouldn't be here. I highly recommend this program.
After my 2nd 10 day kit, I am down another pounds. I took one day off after the first kit was completed. Then, started the 2nd kit just like this one. I did not take a day off after I completed the 2nd kit. Also, as an interesting note, the chicken alfredo in my 2nd kit seemed to taste better. Maybe I was used to it or maybe something was "off" with that first one.
Regardless, the 2nd one was okay. I am now on my 3rd kit, using the diabetes kit because that is all my walmart had left.
