Nutrisystem Men's Silver Plan Reviews

Nutrisystem Day 3 - Hungry and Angry

The meals arrived in little containers that were easy to store. Whenever I was really hungry, I would fill up my water bottle, grab one of the Chocolate Bar snacks or a piece of fruit, and go for a walk. I ate the meals and the snacks, but I also wanted fresh produce.

I liked some of the meals, but I usually cooked them with lots of vegetables and had a glass of wine with dinner. All in all, I will be continuing the Nutrisystem Silver plan because I like the convenience and I am still allowed to cook in addition to the packaged meals. The snacks are excellent and portable, which is great for exercising on the go.

After the first few weeks of being on the Nutrisystem Silver diet plan, I really started to notice the weight coming off. My day was planned out perfectly using the online diet planner.

I could get up in the morning, go for my morning jog, come back and have black coffee and a breakfast bar or the Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal, pack my lunch for work plus a snack and an apple, come home from work and do twenty minutes of yoga, and then do whatever family things needed to be done. My wife was kind enough to make the family meal while I made my own dinners. After dinner, I could have chocolate for dessert!

I rarely felt hungry. My kids are in high school, and they love that I am getting healthier and in shape. My wife has been getting up in the mornings and going for jogs with me. With our busy lifestyle, it has been nice to be able to find time to spend with her, and still be able to do something good for my body.

So, I sign up during the winter to keep the weight off, and then go back to my normal diet during the summer. However, this year, I decided to stay on the Nutrisystem plan all year because I was starting to miss the food! There was only one problem I had, and that was on a three month order. I only received one box when I should have received two. They were very helpful and though they were unable to locate the second box, they did replace my order for free.

They even threw in a few free meals since I was such a loyal customer! I am really glad that I signed up for this plan. The customer service and everything were great, but here is a review of my favorite foods in the Nutrisystem Silver plan.

As you can tell, I really like cinnamon, but there were also some really great fruity flavored options. Lunches were great, too. Dinner was my favorite meal of the day. I was able to eat lots of hearty foods and add my favorite cooked vegetables according to my plan. My favorite food was the Lasagna and the Meatloaf. I loved the meaty textures and the tastes. Great Program for Older Men 4 out of 5 stars.

It was fast to make, perfectly portioned, and very tasty. I never felt hungry and the food was easy to make. I also love the literature and online tools available to help me track my calories, and keep my exercise routine in place. The cost for food comes to about ten dollars a day for three meals plus snacks that keep me full all day. So the cost is no problem. I used to spend much more every day for food.

I used to be a cookie addict. My family is very proud of me for keeping my cookie cravings in check. Helped Get Me Back on Track 4 out of 5 stars. I have been on diets before, especially in my forties. Now I can eat real food that is easy to make and tastes really good. I also like the online meal planner and calorie counter. She has been exercizing too so we can prepare for our retirement to Florida in the summer. I think we will both be bathing suit ready by spring.

That would be helpful so I can see what my daily calorie intake is. Thank goodness I have automatic refills on my Nutrisystem food, or I would be out of luck.

My favorites are definitely the dinners. I used to sit up and watch late night talk shows and just eat. Then again, I never liked meatloaf. I really, really enjoyed the three months of my Nutrisystem Silver plan. I used the plan to get me down to my goal weight, and have since gone back to cooking my own meals.

This time, however, I have started keeping track of calories and eating healthy foods. The Nutrisystem diet helped me be aware of what I was putting into my body. I knew I had been eating too much food before.

Now, I have trained my stomach to feel fuller on smaller portions. By eating light meals and healthy snacks all day long, I find my energy is high and I am able to get through the workday and still find time to exercise in the evenings. If I had used this diet when I was younger, I probably would have been able to play with my kids and not get so tired. Now they are grown with kids of their own, so it is definitely nice to be able to spend time with my grandchildren and not feel tired out by the time they go home.

Four months ago I started a Nutrisystem diet plan for older men. I used to feel sleepy most days. A protein shake would fit nicely within the dairy and protein categories. The guideline for these types of snacks is around — calories and less than 12 grams of carbohydrates along with at least seven grams of protein. Now, nutrisystem has recently added protein snacks to their menu.

The chocolate flavor contains only calories with 9 carbs and 15 grams of protein. Surprisingly, there is only 6 grams of sugar even though these shakes are nice and sweet.

If you look at many shakes that you buy in grocery stores and vending machines, you will see that many contain quite a bit of sugars and carbohydrates which makes them well outside of the guidelines which are given. I always keep the current promotions on the right side of this blog. In the past, these have included the shakes.

First week is the hardest, I got headaches etc.. The good news is if you stick with it your first week is usually the biggest loss.. Eat the bars and or oatmeal and drink tons of water.

Just keep busy, eat a bulky Lean and Green try 2 Veggie Burgers, 1 cup salad, 1 cup broccoli , drink tons of water, and pop an ibuprofen if you get a headache. It will pass, I guarantee it!. I must be doing it right I'm into my 6th day, and it's not been a big deal.. I fill 4 mason jars with water every morning, set one by the computer, one by the TV chair, and one in the kitchen My other trick is wearing a cheap watch from Radio Shack that allows me to set four alarms during the day I eat my first meal replacement upon getting up in the morning, then the watch alerts me,.

TIME to eat another!. Some with chicken breasts, some with pork chops, and if I have meat too small to qualify I suppliment it with as much of a bean burger pattie as I feel it needs. My choice of veggie needed first to be partially cooked, last night it was asperegus, brocolli, or a mix of borcolli, green beans, and cauliflower. The first week saw me take two walks, one bicycle ride, and a long distance motorcycle ride over bumpy roads On the other hand, it could also be because my suspension was designed for my former pounds, and at Your stomach will shrink and you will get used to it.

I am always hungry by the time I eat my meals but not hungry enough to lose it like I was the first two weeks. ANd yes, for me, it lasted two weeks, then it hit me hard again the fifth week and I have occasional days where I feel hungry most of the day, though I really think a lot of that is all in my mind.. Drinking decaf coffee helps me a LOT.. In your first week or two, drink a cup of warm chicken broth as your snack every day, eat 10 almonds.

That really helped me I'm a girl, but i'm 6'1" and had pounds to lose. I'm also extremely active with a mowing business. I tend to go over my protein by one or two ounces sometimes three but I don't eat extra Medifast meals, I usually don't even eat my snack now though I occasionally do, and I make it work for me. Sometimes I have a cup of unsweetened almond milk for 35 calories, sometimes I eat a cup of greek yogurt cals, 9 carbs, 23 protein in the Kroger plain NF brand instead of a Medifast meal but usually I just follow the plan, use lots of hot sauce, and it works..
