I have only been on Nutrisystem for one day, and I was really excited. I live in a dorm so having my food ready for me is really great.

The food isn't bad at all, especially for diet food. So on Friday I ate a Cinnabun nutrisystem breakfast, and cantalope. Felt full..

For lunch I had chicken noodle soup with a side salad and light dressing..

Then for dinner I had the BBQ beef with rice and beans, and for dessert, carrot cake..

All in all not much to complain about, EXCEPT, during the day at one point I felt nauseous. Sometimes it happens before I get my period and it only last a few seconds, so I didn't think anything about it. But that night I had some really bad dreams. Like my mother had been murdered, I was trying to find the killer, my sisters were mourning her death.. then I was in some weird place, and no matter where I turned, I was always back to where I started. These dreams sound horrific and they definitely weren't pleasant, but something about them made them very "shallow" dreams, so they didn't traumatize me too much when I woke up, which is so weird..

Today I ate a banana nut muffin and went to work out (i didn't eat fruit or anything with it, but I really wasn't hungry) I was on the stair master for 5 min on level 1 and then all of a sudden I got the weirdest feeling of nausea hit me along with some really weird sensory overload. Then I thought it might just be nutrisystem...

Can anyone relate to this? Or am I just going crazy?..

Your question was: Anyone get nausea from Nutrisystem?.

You are right... I really need to go grocery shopping. But what about the bad dreams? I've actually heard some complaints that nutrisystem foods might do that to some people. Not sure why...

When I don't sleep well I tend to dream (or more likely have nightmares) that I remember. My guess is that you are having the weird dreams because you are not getting into a deep sleep because you haven't given your body enough fuel. That likely is the cause of your nausea..

You would have received a meal planner with your box of food. It is also accessible on line - click on My Program above and make sure it reads the correct plan (Women's Program) or change it by clicking "select another meal plan" right below the date..

You have to eat all of the food on the plan including the add-ins. NOTHING, is optional. Let me repeat, NOTHING is optional. Doesn't matter if you are hungry or not, you have to eat the required foods. Make sure you are getting enough water it too (minimum 6 to 8 glasses). You can move things around during the day, you can select less filling foods, but you have to get through everything over the course of the day..

Read this thread for suggestions and call a counselor to walk through the program...

It's a good idea to keep a log of exactly when you experience the nausea. The cinnamon bun, carrot cake, and banana nut muffin that you ate contain sugar alcohols (sweeteners) that can cause nausea and other generally unpleasant intestinal issues. If your digestive tract was a bit perturbed by the sugar alcohols in your dessert, maybe that could have provoked your bad dreams (I've heard of something similar happening when people eat spicy foods for dinner).

There is a list posted on the Food Tips Forum that shows all the foods that contain sugar alcohols (malitol is my specific bane). Or you could use the Search function above.

If that does turn out to be the problem, then avoidance is the safest solution. It is possible to exchange foods within 30 days of delivery so just contact CS if you need to exchange some entrees for "safer" items..

Oh, and definitely eat everything that's listed in your meal booklet. Some add-ins that could be dorm-friendly are things like yogurt, string cheese, peanut butter, almonds, baby carrots, and fruit or vegetable juices. I've read of some folks getting the low salt V-8 and then heating it up so that it's like drinking tomato soup.

Best of luck to you...
