Vegetarian Diet

We're eating too much food, period. On my first morning this round of Nutrisystem I opened the granola cereal packet and dumped it in a bowl. I thought "This ain't enough". But, guess what, it was. The process of re-programing myself took a couple of weeks, maybe that entire month to really get used to portion control. But, now I have gotten used to it I like it. Now when I go to a restaurant and see how much food they put on a plate it just gets me. No wonder Americans can't control their weight.

We are programmed to think that we need way more food than we do. Also, now I really enjoy food so much more. My taste buds must be working better but, I enjoy food more while eating far less and no cheap, junk foods. My weekday looks like this. I have become fond of the muffins. They are easy and quick. I go to work and eat lunch about 1: Lunch is a small Walmart salad, the ones that come with everything including the fork, and my Nutrisystem entree.

I may also eat a nonfat yogurt but, not always. Middle of the day, if I really feel hungry I will eat an apple.

About two hours from dinner time, if I'm really hungry I'll drink a Nutrisystem shake My favorite is the vanilla with crushed ice. For dinner I'll eat another Walmart salad and another entree and maybe another nonfat yogurt. At about 9pm I eat my Nutrisystem snack, the carrot cake is fantastic. And that's what a regular guys week looks like on Nutrisystem. I have no kitchen skills so preparing complex and healthy meals can't happen.

Therefore, Nutrisystem works for me. I basically have two choices, low carb or Nutrisystem. Low carb works for me but, it can be pretty brutal and it's too much meat for my taste. BTW, Nutrisystem offers a vegetarian plan. My Nutrisystem weekends on your own looks like this: Mornings I eat cereal.

I like one bowl of Special K redberries with fat free skim milk and my two cups of coffee, sweetner no cream. Lunch on Satuardy, if I'm at home is a salad and maybe some watermelon. Dinner is usually at a restaurant. I like salads and I have had some awesome salads. We went to a steak house last Saturday and I had the small grilled Salmon, a baked sweet potato and a salad.

If we go Thai I get fresh salad rolls, I love em. We keep sugar free jello cups in the fridge all the time as a snack. It's a free food so.. Anyway, maybe this information will help someone. I know for me my healthy lifestyle fell apart at the grocery store.

Nutrisystem takes care of that for you. I go to the grocery store a lot these days but, it's all small purchases. There's four grocery stores between work and home so I don't mind. I don't buy foods with a shelf life for the most part. I would say that we actually save money on Nutrisystem because during the week we don't eat out at all and we don't buy very much from the grocery store.

Our monthly expenditure is either cheaper or a wash but, Nutrisystem isn't costing us anymore than we were spending a month anyway. I have a new un-opened box ready to go. I have three days from the last order.

After the next box is done I may try to go off Nutrisystem. That would be 16 weeks on Nutrisystem. I think I know how to eat now. If I start to slide I'll order a card and get a new box of Nutrisystem.

By Kathy on June 21, I bought this thru Amazon, sold by Charity Books. I received the card to order the food. This is a total scam and Amazon should not even sell this if you can't get you're money's worth..

By Peg on January 20, I was under the impression that when I ordered this from La Leela that I would be receiving the product not a card with a code for the Nutritsystem web site. The charge for mailing a card was overpriced.

It should be stated in the information somewhere that they are just selling a card! And that you have to go to a web site and then sign up to get your product. I would not have bought this after seeing that I could get it cheaper on the Nutrisystem web site.
