This diet has been all over the television. There is even one spokeswoman who says that she has lost weight twice with the program. People have lost as few as thirty-five pounds and as much as 125 pounds with the program.
NutriSystem had humble beginnings targeting only women. Presently they provide plans focused exclusively men, senior citizens, vegans, vegetarians, and people with Type II Diabetes.
The diet is based on the glycemic index. The glycemic index is a number that correlates with the effect foods have on blood sugar. For example, foods with a high glycemic index cause the body to secrete more insulin. This in turn causes hunger more quickly after these particular foods are consumed. Those foods with a lower glycemic index provide a more stable blood sugar. Resulting in more energy all day long. Insulin levels do not spike so people find themselves less hungry and more satisfied with their meals.
Every four weeks Nutrisystem delivers food to your home. The food can be easily prepared by following the handy included instructions. And best of all, no refrigeration is required because of the process used to package the foods.
The food is proportioned to provide nutritious, low glycemic index foods. These are called “good carbs” and they cause fast fat loss without much work. According to the Nutrisystem, the weight and fat will just melt away.
Nutrisystem does encourage participants to add low fat dairy, milk and salads, and fruits to each meal. The primary worry is the carbs that most people eat. Protein is protein, but carbohydrates are not the same. This is demonstrated by the varying glycemic index is assigned to different foods. Whole grains stabilize blood sugar but processed carbohydrates raise it.
The Nutrisystem Plan does not forbid exercise but it is designed to work without it. Exercise can only enhance this program since they are already giving you foods that are optimal for you. Whether weight loss will increase with activity is unknown.
The meal delivery program is expensive, but you may qualify for a payment plan. If you can afford to spend a few hundred dollars on yourself and then the same amount on the rest of your family each month, this may be the plan for you. NutriSystem requires no counting, recording of meals, or anything else like that. You just choose your meal, add some healthy extras, and eat.
But if you don’t want to spend hundreds of dollars per month, per person and all you need is a quick, much cheaper alternative. You should try a safe, healthy cleanse. I’ve put together a plethora of information about this attractive option on my website. Please follow my links below and learn more about it.
