Nutrisystem Diet Review: Nessa's Road to a Healthy Lifestyle

The Nutrisystem meal plans are a decent choice for anyone looking to shed a few pounds. The pre-packaged meals take the guesswork out of meal planning, making it easier to stay on track with your health goals. My favorite part is that you no longer have to count your carb or caloric intake. You also don’t have to worry about eating an unhealthy amount of food because each meal item is portion-packaged and labeled separately.

When I first came across Nutrisystem, I was under the impression that the only items you could eat were the ones included in your plan. Truth is, the program allows you to have fruits, veggies, and dairy, that you buy from the supermarket. The folks at Nutrisystem have 40 years experience in weight loss. With dietitian designed meal plans, you know you are receiving the right amount of nutrients, protein and fiber for your body. The program requires that you to eat six small meals a day. This way you never get hungry and you always feel satisfied.

Nessa’s Weight Loss Journey

Nessa was athletic throughout her adolescent years and had never struggled with body weight until after high school. She would put on about 5 lbs each year since then. Ten years later, she found herself 50 lbs heavier and almost unrecognizable from her high school photos. She was so dissatisfied with her appearance that she stopped being social and, what’s worse, she adopted an even more sedentary lifestyle. She finally decided to do something. However, she hadn’t come across the right program for her. After a season of yo-yo dieting and fluctuating weight, a friend suggested that she tried Nutrisystem. She was skeptical at first, but after a little research, She decided to give the program a try.

Nutrisystem’s meal plan fit like a glove and worked like a charm. Nessa almost never got hungry because the plan allows you to eat every 2-3 hours. After four months, she is now down to her desired weight and she has Nutrisystem to thank for that. They say when you look good, you feel good. Well, Nessa says: “I’m feeling great these days so I have to believe that’s true!”

Varied Meal Plans Prevent Boredom

Some people’s biggest fear is that they will start off loving the program only to get bored with it later. I agree with that the program has had the direct opposite effect on most people. You will actually be looking forward to receiving the monthly package on your doorstep. There are many options to choose from and while not everything you will try is delicious, there are plenty of meals you will love. The broccoli and cheese stuffed chicken breast has become one of people’s favorite go-to dinner items.

For many people, this diet has allowed them to fulfill their sugar cravings without falling off the bandwagon. Some of my favorite choices include the white chocolate chunk cookies, stuffed apple pie, and the chocolate caramel bar. You can be on the program for months and there will still be items that you will not have tried because of the great meal variety the program offers. Nutrisystem has helped thousands of people make a lasting lifetime diet change.
