I had an unhealthy relationship with food for far too long. I would skip breakfast and eat a salad for lunch, only to drown myself in French fries when I passed by a McDonald's on my way home. After countless diet attempts to drop about 40 pounds, all in which I'd be hungry all day, lose some weight, but gain the pounds back once I went off the diet, I'd pretty much given up hope…that was until a friend told me about Nutrisystem.
Nutrisystem sends you pre-portioned packaged meals in smart portions that are designed to fill you up and help you lose up to 1-2 pounds a week, so you steadily reach your weight loss goal. I had my skepticisms that it would work long-term, but the principles of Nutrisystem finally taught me how to fuel my body with food instead of my emotions.
If you want to lose weight but think it's too daunting, here are the things that surprised me most about Nutrisystem:
I eat 6 times a day! I'm never hungry. Nutrisystem sends you healthier versions of your favorite foods, like Chicken Parmesan and Margherita Pizza, plus I throws in fresh fruits and vegetables.
No working out required. By sticking to the Nutrisystem plan, I can still lose pounds without having to exercise each day, but if I'm in the mood, they recommend just ten minutes three times a day.
The food is great! Diet or no diet, I'm obsessed with their double chocolate muffins.
I can eat out. Nutrisystem teaches you to make smarter choices eating out at restaurants without sacrificing flavor or they give me healthy recipes to entertain on my own.
I still eat my favorite foods. No food group is forbidden, so I don't go binge-crazy around junk food.
Nutrisystem was a convenient way for me to realign my eating habits with my health goals; everything arrives ready to heat and eat. Weight loss can be really difficult, and we don't talk about that enough! They understand that it only gets easier when you have a plan and a team to support you throughout your journey.
With Nutrisystem, I was able to lose weight, and I am learning how to keep it off, while starting to live a life that no longer revolves around my unhealthy diet habits.
