Question 6 Answer 6. And then I will no longer be spending obscene amounts of time walking to train, and I will start to shift away from the NutriSystem meals. I love to cook, and do when I have time. How does the 7-day Free Trial work? Two more months on the full plan, but then going as clean as I can. Are you saying the meals are chock full of sodium? I really liked the nutrisystems for traveling.
I prepare meals on the weekends and have them portioned out during the week. I'm a former chef, so really, cooking is not a problem - most of the time. But a lot of that weekend time is now blown away because I'm training for a 60 mile walk in two months. When I'm walking a long distance, I add an extra snack if an organic protein bar with oats and a piece of fruit, plus I add an extra meal or two 8 oz of chicken or lean beef or fish, beans or brown rice, nuts or oilve oil, and a salad or a cup or two of veggies I may also ass a protein shake on those days, usually micellar, before bed When I work out for more than an hour, I make sure I add about cals, though that often is a post-workout shake fruit, yogurt, whey The extra protein I add is usually chicken or tuna more like oz.
Of course, this is in addition to the addition of fresh fruit and cottage cheese or yogurt or turkey bacon or soy sausage or something at breakfast, the 2-oz of protein usually chicken or tuna and large salad about 3 cups of greens and other veggies at lunch, the fresh fruit and protein or dairy as a snack, and the fibrous carbs usually about 2 cups and good fat at dinner. The walk will be finished in October. And then I will no longer be spending obscene amounts of time walking to train, and I will start to shift away from the NutriSystem meals.
And shift to doing 2 days of cardio and 3 days full-body with weights. I agree that the powders and mixes are probably not the way for smart sustained loss. I think if you set your mind to it you can watch your food intake and make the best choices and achieve the clean calorie intake you desire for your wweight loss. Just read these post and find the good foods to eat. Things like eggs, oatmeal, water, almonds, spinach, grilled chicken, grilled salmon, vegies, and anything that man has not put his hands on to make it taste better.
If you watch your portion sizes you will be better off with real foods in the long run and maybe supp. I really liked the nutrisystems for traveling. I travel weeks a month and always carry some of their stuff just becuase it may be the healthiest thing I'll be able to find Your only as strong as your weakest moment. When you feel weak remember your goals, smile and keep going.
I think I will end up ordering a few of their items to have on hand for those days when I need to just grab something, or when travelling. Two more months on the full plan, but then going as clean as I can.
But, as I've said before - I don't have any problem cooking. As a former chef, I enjoy it. Oh, and one of my reasons for doing NutriSystem is to support my sister. Plus, we live together and share our groceries. I also think that as I taper off, I can start instilling in her some more healthy habits. Might even convince her plain unsweetened yogurt is not disgusting. Oh, yeah - and here are some recipies I've posted, to give you an idea of what I cook when I get a chance: Originally Posted by Crissy.

NS questions empresscat, The NS meals sound like they could be a "dry" alternative to microwave freezer meals.
How are the sodium levels? How many meals do you buy in their packages? How long is the shelf-life for the meals? Originally Posted by BF How do you guys suppose Dan Marino and Chris Berman lost so much weight on the weight watchers program.
The weight watchers program is based on GI so they say in their commercials. Do you think it is because they are eating less calories than they were before? I am not trying to discredit your beliefs on the whole GI thing.
I am actually starting to agree and have enjoyed incorporating some NON whole wheat pastas and tortillas back into my diet. Desregard GI's and all that, it's all about the calories. We all come from humble beginnings. Studies everywhere tell you everything, listen to your body instead and you'll succeed. I'm not saying the commercials are lying, and i'm also not discrediting GI, but overall in the grand scheme of things calories in v.
What the calories come from is important imo, but if you wanted to eat less calories of snickers everyday than you do of chicken breast it's still less calories, less food, but less calories. You get back what you put in. Vegan "there are ZERO conclusive and definitive peer-reviewed studies proving detrimental effects of phytoestrogens in dietary soy intake".

They lost weight because the Nutrisystem portions are freaking tiny. See that plate of spaghetti? It's like four bites. It will take a lot to convince me that the GI value of carbs is important for fat loss. It comes off as very broscience When I first got into shape, I lost 50 pounds of body fat not weight, body fat eating one big meal a day, and that meal was usually a big ole fast food burger with large fries.
