Its ready prepared food, shakes and online or telephone support is what makes up the core of this weight loss system. It’s great for people who require an easy and simple way to lose weight and to keep it off.
How Nutrisystem Works
After plenty of research and scientific studies, Nutrisystem found that breaking the plan down into three main elements really helped. These are: Portion Control, Balanced Nutrition and Frequent Meals. The portion control side of things is done for you, there’s no counting, no weighing, no points to follow, the food is already weighed out for you. The balanced nutrition is important to make sure you body is getting the right amount and mixture of nutrients to keep you satiated and strong. Frequent meals are great for those who have found problems with feeling hungry with other weight loss plans or calorie counting, by eating six times a day you’ll never go hungry.
Nutrisystem does work like many other diet plans in the sense that it will control your calories, eating less than you burn will always result in weight loss. The advantage of this plan however is that you don’t have to spend any time or effort working out what’s right or best for you as they have done all the hard work for you. If extra protein is required then they also have a small range of shakes that can be added, this is good if you’re wanting to preserve muscle or you’re very active and need to up your intake a little bit to avoid getting hungry. Nutrisystem also have something called the Fast 5+ kit that you use for the first week that use these shakes and pre-prepared meals. The claim Nutrisystem makes is that you will lose 5 pounds or you get your money back for that week. This is a good way of kick starting your body and mind into losing weight.
