Mark'sbabygirl is A blessed Wife and Mommy Loving our babies!! San Bernardino, CA Posts: Switch to Hybrid Mode. I am thinking about going on a modified nutrisystem diet for a while this pregnancy.
The thing is, eating as much fresh fruits and veggies as I want, but anything else would be nutrisystem. I know that the food doesn't contain any enhancers or anything, it's just a balanced diet. I will be eating calories a day for sure.. I will eat my way to that always.. My doctor said I should only gain 20 more pounds. And before anyone tells me to just eat healthy.. But I still gain way too much weight while pregnant.
If eating healthy doesn't stop your weight gain same calories , I don't think nutrisystem will do anything different. I think it would be fine to do, I just don't think you will see a different outcome if you eat the exact same amount of calories on and off of nutrisystem.
I did nutrisystem before I found out I was pregnant and I loved it! But once I found out I was pregnant, my doctor said to stop because of the amount of sodium and she believes they add diet additives to the food to help you curb your appetite.
With that being said, I know they have a plan for pregnancy, so I would just check with your doctor and see what they say before you order. Because it's super expensive! Nutrisystem probably helps with portion control but double check the sodium levels as someone already mentioned.
Agreed with others about the sodium content. Plus, they are super preserved foods. You may be better off with another plan that doesn't include pre-packaged meals. I'd talk to your doctor though: I had completed one month of nutriaystem prior to getting pregnant the first time. The second month food had just arrived. I figured I would keep eating it and just not focus on weight loss. But I could t stand that food once pregnant.
I ended up throwing it all away. I gained pounds with that pregnancy was recommended for me. I lost 15 by the time I got home from hospital. And then another ten the next week. I had to keep pounds on while nursing my son. If the number on the scale dropped even half a pound, my milk supply would drop and my son would be frustrated. At 14 months, he finally was nursing less and in successfully lost 15 pounds below prep regnant weight in about months.
