Nutrisystem Company Profile
Today, August 20, I weigh in at pounds. The meal portions were pretty shocking but surprisingly satisfying with all the protein inserted into the meals and detox from my usual sugar rollercoaster. The food is mostly bland and has no real flavor. Learn about portion control. If it's gourmet you want, this is not it.

Do soups count as processed foods? When upping the intake of fiber in your diet, you should do so slowly to allow the bacteria in your digestive system time to catch up. Consuming too much fiber when your body isn't ready can lead to gas and bloating.
Even adding small amounts at a time can cause abdominal pain, according to the University of Michigan Health System. When selecting your Nutrisystem foods, you may not take the fiber content into account, which may lead to you eating more than your body is ready for. The University of Michigan Health System suggests adding fiber to your diet at a rate of 5 grams every two weeks.
If your Nutrisystem diet is making you feel too gassy, you might want to take a look at the nutrition information for each food item and make your selections based on the amount of fiber, slowly increasing as tolerated. Also, it's important to drink plenty of water, at least 8 cups daily, when adding fiber to your diet to prevent constipation. When it comes to weight loss, fiber is your friend. Eating foods higher in fiber keeps you feeling full longer, which helps you eat less.
Other dieters on NutriSystem's forums complain of the same symptoms. While it wasn't harsh enough to completely scare me off the diet, it was unpleasant to be sure. NutriSystem may want to consider the calories found in Pepto-Bismol for future consumers.
This is both a pro and a con. While the food was edible, almost none of it was excellent. I wouldn't encourage anyone not on a diet or not committed to losing weight to try any dish. The foods also lacked any sort of freshness. If you enjoy the finer flavors of fresh fish and other lean meats or home-cooked nutrition, this is not the diet for you.
While NutriSystem's meals are healthy and well-balanced, they are all pre-packaged and have mammoth ingredient lists that contain countless unpronounceables.
While many of those strange ingredients are no doubt used to keep the unfrozen foods from spoiling, they don't appear to be doing much in the freshness department. I should also note that this diet is not very ecologically friendly. Because everything comes in wrappers and handy plastic and cardboard containers, my trash output for the last month easily tripled.
As many readers have complained, NutriSystem often swaps meals in their orders. Because people are surely going to hate some of NutriSystem's foods, this can be very annoying. But Jamie said that if anything is swapped and you don't like NutriSystem's replacement, to call your counselor and NutriSystem will send it to you free of charge, and even let you keep the food you didn't order. She said she had one customer who had all 54 of her monthly desserts swapped because she wanted just one every day of the diet and the warehouse happened to be out of it.
Jamie said NutriSystem sent her a box of 54 of the desserts she had originally requested. Overall, the diet definitely works.
I surpassed my weight loss goal and I feel good. If one follows this diet closely, they will be eating healthy and surely lose significant weight. The diet also taught me a lot about eating healthy, portion control and good kinds of calories versus bad. For the right people, I would suggest this diet.
First, you need fairly deep pockets since it costs so much. You also have to be committed, which I suppose the payment for the plan already indicates. Finally, you have to be willing to cut out alcohol and dining which in my case meant much of my social life. The diet would probably also be good for people who have shown prior commitment to diets but because of no real boundaries, didn't achieve their goals.
With NutriSystem, your daily calorie intake fluctuates very little and as long as you follow their strictly defined daily planner, you're sure to burn off some calories.
