There is no miracle cure or magic pill to lose weight. It does take time and commitment to reach your goals, but it is not an impossible task. There are so many plans and programs available to help you along the way, and one of the most popular is the Nutrisystem program that is geared at healthy weight loss.
Who Is Nutrisystem For?
The standard food program is safe and effective for people of all ages towards a weight loss goal. The plan can be customized for special needs and there are various options for those with type II diabetes, the seniors in life, teens between ages 14 and 17 as well as men and vegetarians. Nutrisystem is geared towards success and offering plans to satisfy all health and diet needs.
Are there ways to Save on Nutrisystem?
You can find many offers and discounts, not only on the Nutrisystem website but also at sites they are affiliated with like WeightLossTriumph. Some coupons that stand out begin with one where you can get a 30 percent coupon towards the program. When you go to Nutrisystem to join your selected plan, enter the code 30OFFWEIGHTLOSS for an instant discount. Retailmenot.com also has a $50 coupon you can apply to the plan and get continual 20 percent discounts thereafter by choosing auto delivery. Just be cautious when using retailmenot.com and check expiration dates on their offers.
I have also heard from the forum board that Costco.com offers gift cards to Nutrisystem at a discounted price. The regular cost is $70 for a $100 gift card and you can get even more savings when the card goes on sale for $50, which is a super half price discount; so little to pay for your super new, healthy body.
How Does Nutrisystem Work?
The premise of the Nutrisystem program is a low glycemic index to keep your blood sugar levels stabilized in order to alleviate or reduce food cravings. You have a choice of more than 150 entrees and snacks or desserts on the Nutrisystem plan, providing you a balance of fat, protein and good carbohydrates. The foods are low in sodium, saturated and trans fats and provide whole grains. The nice thing is that you do not have to weigh or measure anything, cook or count calories. The goal is to consume 55 percent carb, 25 percent protein and 20 percent fat daily. As it works out, women will intake about 1200 calories daily while men are allowed up to 1500 calories.
Many of the convenient, tasty foods can either be placed in the microwave or come in a pouch that you stick in boiling water. I am a big pizza lover and found that the Nutrisystem pizzas are great! I like to just add some mushrooms (or you can choose other veggies) to the top of the pizza after slapping on the sauce, sprinkle on the cheese and place in the oven. There are many great options and ways to vary the meals to meet your needs and taste on the program, and lose weight. A great tip is to engage in the member site forum where you will get many discount, recipe’ and meal ideas.
It is a combination of the meals and produce foods that makes for success on this program. Nutrisystem suggest that you eat up to six small meals daily rather than 3 large meals. You will lose more weight on a permanent basis. Depending on your goals, it is typical that most people stay on Nutrisystem for up to 11 or 12 weeks, providing you guidance and support the entire way so that you realize your dreams of a new body and healthy life.
