The NutriSystem program that will best help women and men lose weight is the one that they believe will help them the most based on the particulars of their own life and one that they will enjoy doing. There are many different options and combinations, and the single best way to find out what program is a match for you is to take their free diet analysis.
There are three primary things you need to do to make NutriSystem a sustainable diet. You need to immediately incorporate a nutrient dense diet, you need to master portion size and portion control, and you need to develop a strong support network that extends beyond your immediate friends and family.
We asked Dr. Laurie Rothman to explain in some more detail what people should do when they start a meal delivery service like NutriSystem. She says:
"I would introduce the concepts that we want the "dieter" to carry on into his/her real life after Nutrisystem or similar plan, immediately.
-Most of these plans give you unlimited non-starchy vegetables in addition to the foods provides. I would recommend having full servings of raw or steamed vegetables and salads before meals.
-This will encourage healthy eating habits and likely promote more weight loss anddecrease food cravings. In addition, there is some choice of meals in the plans.
-I would recommend staying away from the meals with red meat and cheese, etc. As these may be okay in the small amounts provided by the pre-packaged meals, but most people are not good at continuing those portion sizes.
-Also, stay away from the desserts on the plan. Have fresh fruit instead. As weight loss occurs, I would recommend replacing one meal at a time with home prepared food. As long as weight loss continues or is maintained as desired, the client is doing great."
