How Much Does Nutrisystem Cost And Other Facts…
The Nutrisystem diet is probably the most convenient diet available today. If you’re someone who doesn’t want to think about planning out meals, going to the grocery to purchase them, cooking and portioning them out then this diet is for you. For a fee you can go online, pick out the meals you want, and then have them delivered to your front door.
Basically, the diet is healthy. You get balanced meals that do not contain high amounts of sodium or bad fats (trans and saturated) but do include the right amount of carbs, whole-grains, lean meats, etc. Another benefit of this diet is that they are portion controlled. This is perfect for those of us who have trouble with our portion sizing.
How Much Is Nutrisystem And Plan Specifics…
With the Nutrisystem diet men follow a plan that allows for 1,500 calories per day and women follow a plan that allows for 1,200 calories per day. The way it works is pretty simple: you visit their website (Nutrisystem.com) and then you choose which meals you want. They are then delivered right to your door. You have many meal options to choose from including dinners, lunch, breakfast, and snacks. All of the meals can be stored on your shelf and can be heated with your microwave.
How much does it cost? This is a question I get asked a lot. The meals cost anywhere from $280 to $310 dollars a month. Also, there will be a need to buy some supplement foods from the grocery so you’ll need to add in those costs. This is not a small amount of money, especially if you have a family. Spending $300 a month for food just for yourself is kinda pricey. But if you have the money and want a “hands-off” approach to your diet then you should consider Nutrisystem.
Along with the food you also receive a guide about modifying your eating behaviors (which is essential to losing weight with Nutrisystem). The guide, written by Dr. Gary Foster who is an obesity expert at Temple University, is a 12 week system that shows you how to have your own “Mindset Makeover” in which you will learn how to change everything from curbing your cravings to finding support from friends and family.
The guide is not all you receive. With your monthly Nutrisystem fees you’ll also receive guidance for your diet and exercise, a weight loss peer community you can participate in, online support, and telephone counselors that are available when you need them.
You also receive instructions for exercises that are recommended. You can use the instructional CDs that are included or you can go online and choose personal fitness plans that are tailored to your personal fitness level. The options you have to choose from include yoga, weight/resistance training, and aeorobics.
The shipments of food you receive monthly include 28 dinners, 28 lunches, 28 breakfasts, and 28 desserts. The system does not include any meal replacements and users are encouraged to supplement the meals with food from your local grocery like fresh fruit, proteins, vegetables, and milk.
The foods that are NOT permitted are: Alcohol, any processed food, cakes, bread, pies, cookies, or candy.
The Typical Daily Nutrisystem Meal Plan
For Breakfast: 1 piece of fruit, 1 piece of protein or dairy
For Lunch: 1 salad, 1 piece of protein or dairy, 2 tablespoons of salad dressing (must be low-calorie and fat-free)
For A Snack: 1 piece of fruit, 1 piece of protein or dairy
For Dinner: 2 servings of vegetables, 1 salad or 1 piece of fruit
For Dessert: A specific dessert
This plan is perfect for singles on the go or those people with families who can afford it. And it does teach you portion sizes and how to change your eating behavior. But the problem is, once you stop ordering the food you’ll have to figure out how to shop for and prepare your own meals or you stand a chance of regaining the weight you lost.
