Hmm... I need to find out myself. I don't know what is the answer. I'll do some research in Google and get back to you if I find an anything. You should email the people at Nutrisystem as they probably can answer it..
I am a 35 year old female. I am over 100lbs overweight. I am on the women's basic plan but I do have type II diabetes. I haven't experienced any hypoglycemic episodes-just hunger about 2-3 hours after a meal. I am eating a lot of vegetables in my salads. I'm sure I am eating more vegetable servings than the minimum but I guess I could eat more unlimited veggies...
You need to eat EVERYTHING on your plan, which INCLUDES carbs for breakfast AND dinner. You have to add Dairy/Protein and Fats. Have you talked to a Counselor? PLEASE do! If you aren't adding everything, you aren't eating nearly enough!..
Thanks for your help. I will check in with a counselor tomorrow...
They are there 24/7 at 1-800-585-5483, option 5..
Did you get a MEAL PLANNER in your order? You need to follow the pages there, step by step. You can also access your personal MEAL PLAN under the MY PROGRAM tab above...
Welcome back toNutrisystemGizmoGidget; many re-starters here including me. Listen to PamSB, you must eat all the add-ins and the counselors are great. The program works if you follow the plan and drink your water. Wishing you the very best on your weight loss journey...
I am with you! I lost about 40 lbs on it last time (about 4 1/2 yrs ago), and I gained it all back plus about 20 lbs more! I am back because I was successful before and I know I will be again. I did maintain it for awhile, but for me portion is an issue too. I have a big appetite, so I feel you. It has been adjustment eating the small portions again. I like the structure and discipline AND convenience of NS, so here I am again. Good luck to all!..
Hi everyone! My name is Lynn. I too am trying this a second time..
My first time was February 2006. I was very successful. I could not believe the inches I lost and I think I lost about 30 pounds. OMG!! I felt and looked wonderful. Then in September I found out that I was pregnant with my third surprise child (at 40 years old). I gained all my weight back and it has not budged!!!.
My mom surprised me two days ago and said she was going to treat me and her to NutriSystem to kick start out weight loss. I was so excited!.
Of course, the food will be different than what I remember..
I am praying that I am successful again. My protions got way out of control and so did my snacking..
It is nice to be here again!!!!.
Hi Lynn...I hear you and good for you! Same thing for me....portions and sweets were over the top! My problem is I love to bake and of course eat it. I have the biggest sweeth tooth, and how many diets do you go on that allow you to eat dessert every day? Some of the food is exactly the same...it's all good, just small! LOL Yes, you will be successful again!..
