Now onto the basics of the program:
The first thing you need to know about Nutrisystem is that the whole system is based on providing you with their own, ready prepared meals to replace the meals you would normally have. Nutrisystem meals are balanced and contain all the nutrients that your body needs to maintain good health as well as being low in calories to help you to lose weight.
You might take possession of the food package and on opening it might find the meals a little on the small side. This is normal as you are supposed to be losing weight, meaning you really ought to get used to eating less! But if it really is a struggle to get used to the smaller meals, you can get some fresh vegetables to accompany the Nutrisystem meals by their own recommendation in order to bulk them out. This will save you feeling hungry sooner than you would like after eating one of the basic meals.
This can be seen as a disadvantage to the system, because people are often too lazy to bother with that extra step and then complain when they feel hungry well before its time to eat the next meal. The result can lead to snacking on junk foods or snacks like potato chips or cakes or biscuits, which totally negate the diet’s benefits and you won’t lose any weight. Better to drink a glass or two of plain water before each meal. That will make you feel fuller, sooner and satisfy your appetite as well.
Does Nutrisysten Cause Gas?
Some of the food that makes up the ready meals has been reported by some customers as producing flatulence (or gas). This is especially so in those who have been used to a really bad diet of junk food.
The main reason for this is that their bodies simply need to adjust to digesting good healthy food and this produces gas. The best way to get past this is to not let it get you down, but just accept it as your body doing what it’s designed to do.
The Benefits of a Nutrisystem Diet
The positive benefits of being on this particular dieting program are mostly well known, but here are some of the main ones just to make sure you didn’t miss any.
- There are several different diet plans to choose from depending upon your personal needs. There are different core plans for men and women and these are further individualized with plans for diabetics (Nutrisysten D), vegetarians and seniors (Silver) with meal options for those with special needs such as gluten intolerant customers for example. There is also an all-frozen meal plan called “Select” if you prefer this kind of menu.
- All meal plans are customizable by the customer to suit your own tastes and needs
- Meals are delivered to your home. No need to go to the store to buy food unless you want to add to the meals according to recommendations by the company
- The meals are easy to prepare: Just take them out of their packages, or the freezer in the case of frozen meals and pop them into the microwave if they need heating up, or follow the instructions on the package
- Low price when you opt for auto-delivery* with menus costing under $10 a day
