This program is everywhere. One t.v. spokeswoman says that she used the program twice to lose weight. People have lost as few as 35 pounds and as much as 125 pounds using the system.
NutriSystem started off with most of its clients being women. Now, they offer a men’s plan and a senior adult plan for both men and women. Their website also states that they have plans for vegetarian dieters and those suffering from Type II diabetes.
The Nutrisystem program is based who9lly upon the glycemic index. The glycemic index corresponds with the affect foods have on blood sugar and insulin production. Some foods have a high glycemic index. When consumed they cause the body to secrete large amounts of insulin. The increased levels of insulin cause hunger more quickly after these foods are eaten Foods with a lower glycemic index provide a more stable blood sugar and do not spike insulin levels. The result is a more even insulin production (no spikes) and more energy throughout the day. Insulin levels remain even and most people find themselves more satisfied with their meals and less hungry.
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 nutrients and low glycemic index foods. These “good carbs” cause rapid weight loss with very little effort. According to the commercials, those who use the plan say that the weight literally melted off of them.
The plan does encourage participants to add low fat milk and dairy, salads, and fruits to each NutriSystem meal. The main concern is the carbohydrates that we eat. Protein is protein, but carbohydrates aren’t all the same which is evidenced by the numbers reached through the glycemic index. Processed carbohydrates raise blood sugar, while those that are made of whole grains stabilize it.
The plan does not exclude exercise but it is designed to work without it. Exercise may improve the results of the program since they are already giving you foods that are optimal for you. Whether weight loss will increase with activity is unknown.
Getting meals delivered expensive, a few hundred bucks a month for you and the same for every family member who wants to join. If you can swing this type of payment then this might be your plan. On the upside, NutriSystem doesn’t require calorie counting, recording of meals, or anything of the sort. You just choose a 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.
