A NutriSystem Alternative Using My Own Foods?

In the past, I have lost a nice amount of weight doing NutriSystem. I'm grateful for the weight I lost, but was surprised at how easy it was to put much of that weight back on again. It is more because of eating foods that are not as low in glycemic index as NutriSystem than anything else, because I don't consider myself to be a big eater or one to snack a lot.

I have challenged myself to lose that weight again, and put the program I am using at another location on the web. The title is Replacing NutriSystem Your Own Foods - A Complete Weight Loss Program. This isn't meant to imply that what NutriSystem offers is bad, I appreciated the weight lost on the program...just wanted to see if there was an alternative way to do a similar thing. See what you think when you visit here.

Again, I liked the orderly way NutriSystem was laid out and may consider it again one day, just want to see how I'll do on my own.

  9. We should take proper care of our health such that Nutri System can be very much beneficial for our health. So we should concentrate on that.

  10. I lost 80 pounds with nutrisystem. I now find other convienence foods that are similar to nutrisystem and eat the same "extras" -vegetables, fruits, etc. I am still losing weight all though not as fast. Also there is a book to make your own food if you prefer. Also if you use the message boards you can learn how to stay on the diet without the prepackaged foods. I got kind of tired of the dehydrated lunches and could find cheaper alternatives to the breakfasts. However I loved the dinners. Also the nice thing is when things are prepackaged they are portion controlled. If I cook for myself I tend to eat more.

  11. They might be, but you'll also need to get plenty of fruits and vegetables in your diet also. Women in the NS program are limited to about 1200 calories per day. Can't recall what the daily caloric intact for the guys were. Would Healthy Choice meals be a good substitute for Nutrisystem meals?

  13. Well I must say that I really liked the way of the nutritious system in an ordarlly manner. I will defiantly follow the same at least once so that I may see the changes in me after doing so. You have reduced your weight through nutritious diet. And I will also do the same. As I am little bit healthy.

  14. I need things to be simple and easy to prepare and Nutrisystem is great for people who like convenience. Everything is prepackaged and properly portioned. You supplement the program with Fruits and Veggies since that wouldn’t be very good prepackaged. You can either order the “Favorites” package or pick your own. I tried the “Favorites” package and found things that I definitely like and also found stuff I will never order again. Everyone has their own preferences but if you are used to frozen meals from Lean Cuisine, Health Choice, etc you should have no trouble finding something you enjoy in NS.
