So I just started yesterday and am not looking forward to today at all. I followed the plan 100% but was hungry ALL day. I was uncomfortably hungry 20 hours out of the 24 hour day. Is this normal? Will it go away? If so when??..

Your question was: Will hunger from Nutrisystem go away?.

I feel for you and I can relate..

I went through the entire first week like that. The only time I wasnt hungry was when I was asleep, and there were several nites I woke up in the middle of the nite with my stomach growling..

Eating all your veggies, drinking your water, spacing your food out, all of those suggestions are excellent but it did NOT help me the first week. I was still STARVED all week long..

Here's the good news though....if you can make it through the first week, the 2nd is much easier! I'm on week 2 (the end of it actually) and I'm NOWHERE near as hungry this week as I was last..

If you hang in there, it gets better!..

Welcome!.

It does get much easier but you really shouldn't be starving if you are following the plan correctly. Are you adding in all your extra's not just eating Nutrisystem food? Can you post what you ate yesterday?.

You can space out the food more to help you too..

If you are eating the extra's maybe you need to pick more filling add ins (ones with more fiber and protein)..

Drink that water too!!!..

List out what you ate and we can make suggestions for more filling add-ins..

Read this thread for some suggestions...

Comment #3

Thanks for everyones input. I did eat the add ins but I think I should space the items out a little more and maybe look into more filling add ins. Here is what I ate yesterday....

Breakfast - Apple cinnamon bar.

Slice of ham.

Slice of wheat toast.

Pineapples.

Morning Snack - Milk.

Orange.

Lunch - Red Beans and Rice meal.

2 servings of green beens.

Afternoon Snack - Soy Chips.

Dinner - Salisbury steak and rice (Steak taste awful by the way).

Pineapples.

Green beans.

Collard greens.

Wheat roll.

Desert - Nutrisystem Snack mix..

You had multiple servings of veggies, which is good, but I think you would have been better served starting out with a big salad either at lunch, dinner or both...

Comment #5

Looks like you missed a protein serving with your lunch. But the rest looks right on...

Comment #6

I know for me, milk does nothing to fill me up. For my afternoon snack, I have yogurt (usually greek...more filling) with fruit, or cottage cheese with tomatoes (okay...no tomato being veggie or fruit discussion...but they ARE technically fruit!), or cheese stick with an orange...perhaps a more filling afternoon snack protien/dairy would help you a bit this week. Give it a shot.

Oh, and I so agree on the huge salad for lunch idea. Really fills you up over a serving or two of vegies...

Comment #7

Spacing out your food really helps me. I eat something every 11/2 to 2 hrs and haven't been hungry yet. I've been on maintenance since July. As Poly said "big salads are the key". Good luck to you. It will get better, Nancy..

Comment #8

I don't see any fat servings. Amazingly, they help fill you up. A few other suggestions:.

I find the breakfast bars are not very filling. I tend to go for Nutrisystem pancakes, egg frittata (I add egg beaters and lots of steamed veggies), or oatmeal.

Snack - I'd opt for Greek yogurt or cottage cheese here since milk is not very filling..

Lunches - I would add a salad, plus the protein serving and the fat serving. What about the fruit serving (I am guessing you have 100+ to lose with the extra carbs at breakfast & lunch).

Dinner - except for the fat serving, nothing missing here, but I'd add an unlimited vegetable to fill you up..

Oops - seeing the 2 Nutrisystem desserts tells me you're a guy. Sorry about that. Forget the extra fruit serving at lunch. Fill up on unlimited veggies. They really help...

Comment #9

Something that really helps me. Hold your breakfast fruit until mid way between breakfast & lunch. & hold your veggie/salad until mid way between lunch & dinner...

I doubt your slice of ham had enough protein to fit a dairy/protein serving. You want to follow the stats of up to 100, 3g of fat or less and at least 7g of protein. This will give you larger portion sizes than the 1 oz of meat that Nutrisystem lists in the book (which is based on the ADA lean protein serving).

Bars don't always fill me up. It definitely helps to break up the meals and eat more during the day. Eat the Nutrisystem breakfast entree with your coffee/tea and then an hour or two later have a second breakfast with your carb, dairy/protein and fruit. You can have a 1/2 cup of oatmeal for your carb, a greek yogurt (15g of protein) and your fruit. That will be more satisfying than what you ate. Or have a 1/2 cup of egg beaters/egg whites sauteed with veggies (spinach, mushrooms, peppers, onions, etc.) and make a big omelet or scramble and have that either on or with a sandwich thin (they are 100 calories) or find the Arnold's bread that is 40 cals/slice so you can have two slices.

If you count things properly, you can actually have a 1/2 cup eggbeaters (60 cals) and a slice or two of canadian bacon and have that be your dairy/protein serving. Definitely look for more bulk in your meals..

Skip the milk for the morning snack. Drinking my proteins is rarely satisfying for me. Occasionally I will use a small container of muscle milk light (100 cals and 15g of protein) as that is pretty filling. They sell them in a 4-pack at Target and some drug stores. Opt for more filling add-ins like greek yogurt, cottage cheese, 3 oz of grilled chicken, tuna, shrimp, etc. Same thing with fruit - berries, cantaloupe, apples, etc.



Lunchtime - make a huge salad with whatever veggies (not carbs) you like. Go easy on the dressing and eat that for bulk. Don't be shy about eating extra vegetables and opt for ones with more bulk like broccoli. Have a huge salad at dinner too..

Water, water water drink plenty of it..

There are some more tips to combat hunger here. Once you find what works for you, you won't be hungry on the program...

Have more veggies that are unlimited. The big salads really do help in the beggining...

Comment #12

Are you eating all that you are supposed to eat? Including the add-ons of protein, vegetables and fruit? You can have unlimited amounts of many vegetables. Really - humongous salads with unlimited veggies. If you have more than 100 pounds to lose, you need to add 2 extra carb servings and one fruit serving per day..

What did you eat yesterday? I can help you if you list everything you had..

Hang in there...
