Nutrisystem Diabetic Reviews
Anyway, running across your blog was just what I needed!! Good luck to you. I find people asking the same questions over and over again, and you are very patient about that. Thank you for this: The sad thing is I actually work in fitness, I help other people get healthy but for a long time I had a false perception of myself. When I say high fat I am not talking the bad for you fats but good fats olive oil, coconut oil etc. I am on half blood pressure meds.

What you should know: I believe in balancing health and happiness.

Are You An Under-Eater? 8 Signs You’re Not Eating Enough

I have a couple of questions though! Now if you work out then do you get extra points for working off so many calories? Now the only way to caculate the food is with the points calculator right?

For instance if I had small spinch salad and turkey burger for lunch how do i know how many points that was all together? Once again thanks so much: Yes, you do get activity points for working out.

Also, for calculating points in recipes, I would always calculate the point value of each ingredient, then tally them up. Hi Ashley, How do you calculate homemade items. I just made some vegetable beef soup? Also how do you go about figuring out points on earned and what type of things does that include. I calculate home made foods by first calculating the individual ingredients, then totaling them all up at the end: I have a question on the points calculator do I put in my current weight or my goal weight?

Thank you sooo much for posting! I am super excited! I am confused on one thing though. I used the calculator above and it says I need 39 points a day.

I used a calculator from another website WW calculator claim and It says I need 32 a day. I would like to do it the right way. I was on WW in and my daily points allowance for my same weight was 24points according to your calculations I should be eating 27points?? Why is their a major difference now? When the plan changed to Points Plus, the daily targets went up, so did many points values especially higher carb foods.

The new plan gently pushes you in the direction of making more healthy and satisfying choices. Mine went from 21 to There is an actual calculator that you could buy through Weight Watchers, or possibly eBay or Amazon. Just gotta search around: You can find a location close to you on weightwatchers. As a life time member of weight watchers there are some things that you need to know before embarking on this journey without the help of the weight watcher staff.

The daily point value that you are supposed to eat is not acurate. The minimum daily point value for everyone regardless of the amount of weight to loose is No one should be eating less than 26 points per day.

You need to make sure you have 2 tsp of healthy oils as well and eat from the 4 food groups every day plus lots of water.

Weight Watchers is an awesome program that helps you loose weight the healthy, safe way. I recommend it for everyone and you can eat everything you want just calculate the point values. Its not a diet but a life style. Good luck on your journey! Thank you so much for posting these tools! I lost 30lbs on weight watchers a couple of years ago and am excited to get started again! Do you happen to know of a recipe builder like tool so that you can put in a recipe and find the point value?

Calorie count will let you build a recipe and give you the nutritional info, which you can then enter into the points calculator. Some that do have points are potatoes, corn, peas…. Comment if you have other questions. Without that , how would you know how much to eat a day? Happy to find your site. A few years back I lost with the old Points system by just following through online resources and some friends. I wanted to find out about Points Plus and you gave me the info.

I am currently doing WW online and have lost 40 lbs in 6 months. Was worried about not having access to the restaraunts, calculater, etc. YOU are a lifesaver. You do get 49 extra points each week to use as you see fit. And exercise, exercise, exercise!

Thanks so very much for posting this. I usually follow the meal plan fairly closely, but I was concerned I would miss the tools when I went out to eat and when I occasionally choose a different meal. These tools will fill in that gap nicely. I will also say that, based on what I have seen with online tools over the past year, these tools suggested in this article are accurate for the most part.

Any ideas for how I can follow this successfully? Just do your best to make fresh choices. Stock up on those steam-in-bag single serve frozen veggies if you have a freezer. Keep fruit in your room. A big thing is portion sizing, as well. Protein the size of a deck of cards, tons of veggies, etc.

Whole wheat, whole grain, low fat dressing. Do you have a way to figure out excersize points? Thanks for this awesome post! Fruits and veggies are FREE! But I eat one every day. It definitely helps with the afternoon munchies…. Fruits are not FREE, they are 0 points plus values. Fruit is 0 points. You should get the recommended fruits and vegetables in a day which is servings a day I believe.

Be smart…measure out one portion and then evaluate whether you are still hungry. Is there a pre-existing list of basic foods anywhere? I would also recommend this points plus calculator at http: I also lost a lot of weight with WW a few years ago, then after a long year with two foot surgeries, etc. WW is a great program, when you follow it: There is another free program that is just as good, with added options for your whole health, etc. How many points do you add if you are nursing mom on the Points Plus?

In 15 weeks I have lost 30 pounds. I lost about 6 pounds the first week and then after that I averaged pounds.

When i exercised I didnt add in any points. I just stuck to my point allowance and the weight came off. Is the points calculator on this site accurate or not? Thank you so much!!! Now I can hopefully start!!! So you lost Thanks to whoever it was who told me about Shrinking On A Budget. Thanks to Freckleberry Finds for this post too! If I am allowed 26 daily points on points plus, how do I fill out the log? You are such a star for this! All I wonder is if you have a preference for a friendly weight loss forum?

Like a nice community of people helping each other out? Your blog is amazing! Thank you so much. I would suggest checking out http: It gives free points values for foods weight watchers plus as well as restaurant dishes and their point values.

Does anyone know it there is a points plus food companion floating around anywhere? Thanks for the links! I wanted to add that if you go to foodfacts. At the bottom of each product page they tell you how many WW point are in that product. Not sure of to follow please help….. What a great article. You can also add single items to the grocery list. I was looking into WW myself yesterday and thought the same thing. I was gonna do more research today but you just saved my time.

This is a good site to let people know they can do on their own without paying the amount they charge. Keep up the support! Here is my problem. If PointsPlus is now saying that fruit is 0 points, then why when you put the info into the calculator, do they not come up at 0 but more like 2? Works out better for me. Ty ty ty ty!!! I am a lifetime member to Ww. I made a huge move away from my family and gained 50 s. So its back on Ww.

How bout where is a list of foods grouped by pyramid categories and measured amounts? I am so glad I found this! I exercise 6 days out of the week so I hope weight watchers will help!

Hi any suggestions on how to figure points for the meals you cook at home with your own recipes? Is there a calculator that will allow you to enter the ingredients? Use this recipe calculator: I am trying to loose about 50lbs by May if possible. I have only lost 4lbs in 2 weeks. Does anyone have any tips for me on what I should eat on a daily basis?? I was thinking about just doing the frozen Weight Watchers dinners is that okay? Can I ask your opinion? I am a nursing mom; however, my nursling is 15 months old and only nurses once in the morning and once before bed with the occasional daytime feeding.

Im not producing enough milk to feel engorged in the slightest, nor enough to make them even a tiny bit firm, even if he skips a session. Would you even count that as nursing at all? I would count that as part time. I bet someone at La Leche League or another nursing program could give you calorie recommendations for that amount of nursing. Thak you so much!! D you have saved my life really. Not knowing the difference i went with the old points program.

I was allowed 39 points. I found your site, wish I would have found it at the beginning, and it is a great help. I put my numbers in the points plus calculator and I get 56 points. I had to quit when I got pregnant and circumstances do not allow me to rejoin when the baby is born. I have points sliders and such but for the older plan. Before fruits were free and points values changed.

This was a fantastic find. Thank you so much for putting this together. It told me my points should be I played around with the numbers and by adding weight it gave me higher points. I would think the more you had to lose the lower your points would be, not the opposite. Does 26 points for my info sound right? So I just used the formula to calculate my points and I come up with 20 points. I need all the help I can get….

Thank you for this: However I just wanted to make sure, is the point allowance calculator up to date? Because on other calculators online I am only getting 26 points as opposed to 33? I did weight watchers before and it was great just need to get motivated to do so again Ifind as you get older harder to loose thanks for posting this you are an angel.

I have a question. I am allowed 29 points a day, plus I work out intensely for an hour every day. Is it vital that I use all of my points? Whats your thoughts on this? I have been doing points plus for three weeks now and lost 4 pounds.

I really need to have something on my phone because I will not track if I have to sit down at a computer every day. You are an inspiration!! I have been roaming your blog all morning and have printed out your food log!

So excited to get back on track! A year ago I was right where I wanted to be, I also have Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred and it helped me get where I wanted to be but somewhere between summer and holidays I let everything slide and gain everything back!

I am looking into doing water areobics but cant do that until I get the knee high cast off in weeks. My thyroid is fine, no other health problems except some major acid reflux that I had back before I originally started WW. It went away after I lost weight. Help me find that please.

I swear I saw it on your page, but now can not find it. Sorry about the novel here. I really like your site but I think you are mistaken about the old Weight Watchers plan and how to calculate the daily points. I believe there was a at the very least, a minimum amount for everyone which was 21 point s a day.

Actually you are entitled to 21 points- anything less is very difficult to maintain. I would check with some past members about the old plan to verify your data. Thanks for all the info! Once you do your homework and create a list of frequently eaten items, this is way too easy. I love your sight and use the activity points link and pt plus calculator link a ton.

Today the pt plus calculator does not have the calculator on it!! Did WW get rid of it — argh! Is there another link to it? I have a quick question about how to calculate activity points in a different kind of situation.

I have browsed your site several times in the last year and finally decided to take the plunge.

It was very easy to follow the plan that you have posted here. I did go to attend weight watchers years ago and was somewhat successful — but you are right, the money is definitely a deterrent. We are going to Hawaii, for our 30th Anniversary, in about 6 weeks and find that is a big incentive for me to stick to this plan.

The fact that I can eat fruit or veggies at 0 points when I am feeling hungry really helps. So after week 1 I am down 4 pounds. Thankyou for posting this. I agree with one of the comments above.

Leslie, My email is jillfiredup on yahoo and I just checked. This is for PointsPlus calculations — is your calculator for the old points system? What would sniiping be to SC. I just calculated my Daily Points and it was off by How do we calculate our activity points? Maintaining a healthy weight took on new importance after starting a family. When I finally decided to sign on with Nutrisystem , my health was not in good shape.

The crazy thing is the weight gain really snuck up on me. But, that all changed once I hit my mids. As my friends began settling down and starting families, I continued the partying and overindulgence of my college days, and as my metabolism slowed I really began to pack on the pounds.

The big wake-up call came when I finally decided to visit my primary care doctor. The results of the visit came as a shock, to say the least. It was the middle of winter, and I was laying on the couch late one night when a Nutrisystem commercial came on TV. Dan Marino , the legendary Miami Dolphins Quarterback, was talking about how he had lost more than 20 pounds on Nutrisystem, and for some reason, his words stuck with me see the commercial below.

Marino was one of the biggest names in the NFL as a kid, and here he was on TV talking about a diet plan that had worked for him, and he actually seemed genuine and believable. Whatever the reason, I was convinced it was what I needed. During my research, I found a lot of positive reviews about Nutrisystem, and I knew it was time to give it a try! My family and I. I was able to lose 30 pounds with Nutrisystem, and have been able to keep it off by making simple lifestyle changes.

It was affordable, convenient, tons of people reported great results online, and they guaranteed the weight loss. After doing a little research, I decided it was right for me and decided to sign up. I was probably around pounds when I finally decided to jump on the bandwagon, and my weight was going nowhere but up at that point.

Nowadays, I try to stay as close to as possible, and I am usually able to maintain that goal, give or take a pound or two.

That being said, I still utilize diets like Nutrisystem from time-to-time, when I feel like I need a re-charge, or to quickly burn off some extra weight. After reaching my goal, I transitioned to a plan that includes their Turbo Shakes, healthy foods that I prepare on my own, and a regular exercise routine.

While their Basic plan worked for me for me, they have several options to choose from. The big takeaway here: Pick a plan that fits your budget and dietary needs they have specialty plans for vegetarians and diabetics , and know that ALL of their plans are going to help you lose weight when used correctly.

There is a ton of variety, the meals are quick and easy to make, and they even have frozen options that take the quality up another notch. You can view their full menu at the official Nutrisystem website. Ultimately, I wanted to make a goal of losing about 10 pounds per month.

For me, this was very doable following their diet plan. The results are going to be different for everyone, but if you have 20, 30 lbs, or more to lose, then I would expect to be on the diet for at least two months.

In my case, once I reached my weight loss goal, I had established a routine for how much I needed to eat each day, so I was comfortable developing a plan of my own. As someone who has lost more than 30 pounds using the Nutrisystem program, I can tell you that it absolutely works.

I highly recommend it to anyone who has 10 or pounds to lose. Nutrisystem Turbo 13 is one of the most effective ways to lose weight, and is a great fit for anyone who wants an easy plan to follow. I've used their plan now several times over the years, and it's one of our highest rated weight loss products here on the site. I really liked your story.

I am in day 2 of my Turbo Program. My history with NS is in I had my 3rd child, 12 months and one day after my 2nd. My weight on delivery date was My normal weight was I went down to Lowest in my life, and I felt good. I did feel healthier at which I managed to maintain for 20 something years. In 3 years I graduated a size I weighed when I graduated. I still weigh 10 years later and feel awful. I too started to eat out and drink wine. I only hope I have the will power to succeed this time.

I feel I have to become a hermit and say no to going out with my friends, neighbors and family. But now I am older and I dread the fact it may take me years to lose all this fat. But I have only myself to blame.

Reading your story has given me some inspiration. I am going to make 10 weight loss increments only as to not get discouraged.

Thank you for sharing your story. Hi Cheryl- Thanks for reading, and sharing…What an inspiring story! I still have a drink occasionally, but try to keep it limited to social gatherings and not an everyday thing. In any case, best of luck with your weight loss journey! Norman, you seem to know the NS diet very well. I have been on this diet around 7 years ago and I see a few new changes this time. My order has arrived and I unpacked my Turbo Box yet did not keep that food separate, and now i am really unsure of what was in it for my first week….

Best of luck with the program. Hope that helps -NS. You want to be at your goal weight then, not wishing you did something about it yrs ago.

No, you cannot pound them back, but I am not sure why you would want to anyway. Co-workers always ask me to go out for a drink and they order whatever and I order a diet coke. You could blame it on medication if you want. When I go out to eat or go to cookouts, etc.

I order a meat and a vegetable with a diet soda. No potato or anything. At a cookout it would be a burger or chicken with no bread, and a tossed salad or veggie. You CAN do it. You just have to order carefully. I wish you luck. You can do, I know you can.

It is so nice to read a positive article about Nutrisystem. You are so right about your body becoming used to the smaller portions.

Like anything, your body goes through an adjustment period, but after a few days, it is quite easy. With frequent snacks between meals, as well as plenty of fluids, you are eating pretty much whenever you feel hungry.

Hi, thanks for the great review! Thanks for the nice comment: Excited to hear how Nutrisystem goes for you — let us know!

Hi Ellen — You definitely need to talk with your doctor before trying Nutrisystem or any weight loss plan with your health issues, but they do offer a plan for people with diabetes.

I would recommend checking out their site to learn more about the different plans they offer. They also offer snacks and shakes as options over the course of the day, so that helps with the extra cravings too. Hope that helps, and best of luck with your weight loss journey! Someone in my Myspace group shared this website with us so I came to give it a look.

Exceptional blog and brilliant design and style. Thanks for the kind words and for visiting the site — let me know your Twitter handle so I can return the favor! Those first 2 weeks i dropped 13 lbs, but that third week i lost maybe 1 lb. I was only eating the provided meals the first two weeks usually around only calories per day obviously that was unhealthy, so i added in a few snacks to put me right around calories per day.

But unfortunately that has resulted in minimal weight loss. Did you have plateaus like this? And how did you over come these stalls? I did just purchase an elliptical and also a stationary bike, but only on day 2 with those. Your review was wonderful and very well written, so thank you!

Hi Julie- Thank you so much for sharing your story, and way to go for making it through your first month! I think the calorie restriction is the hardest part about Nutrisystem, and why now I typically only do the diet for a month or two and then really focus on just eating right and getting enough exercise after that.

For me, the approach after Nutrisystem has been intermittent fasting IF. That said, I have had a lot of success with it, and find that I can maintain a healthy weight for long stretches of time when using it. I started with the turbo charge and continued now for almost 3 weeks. I have only lost 3 lbs. When I emailed a counselor they said that was normal and I was doing well. Big hope very disappointed.

In any case, hope the rest of your month goes well, and best of luck moving forward. I just started Nutrisystem. I always lost weight on the low carb diet when I was younger.

But the fat intake was not good. Just to avoid all the carbs… Did you or anyone else have a issue with how many carbs are in each meal? Is this ok lol… Please someone assure me all the carbs are ok!

Thanks for visting, and best of luck with your first month! Thanks for the excellent review and videos. Excited to see what kind of progress I can make. Hi Krystal — thanks for visiting the site, and taking the time to read my review and watch the videos.

Always happy to hear that it helped! Thanks for the great info and for sharing your story! Thanks for the kind words, June! Congrats on taking the first step and best of luck with Nutrisystem — hope it goes well! I mastered more new things on this fat reduction issue.

An enormous reduction in junk food, sugary foods, fried foods, sugary foods, beef, and white flour products may perhaps be necessary. Holding wastes unwanted organisms, and wastes may prevent ambitions for fat-loss. While specific drugs for the short term solve the situation, the unpleasant side effects are certainly not worth it, plus they never present more than a short-term solution.

Many thanks sharing your thinking on this weblog. Thanks for the input Saul. Have you ever considered creating an ebook or guest authoring about Nutrisystem on other sites? I know my readers would appreciate your work. If you are even remotely interested, feel free to send me an email. Hi Lance — I actually do have an eBook in the works, so stay tuned for that! I just wanted to say that this post is awesome, well written and lots of useful Nutrisystem info.

Looking forward to my first shipment. Hi Corburt — Thanks for the kind words, and best of luck with your first month — hope it goes well! I just wanted to offer you a huge thumbs up for the great information you have right here on this post. I will be returning to your site for more soon! This blog looks exactly like my old one! Great choice of colors! Really inspired by your story — thanks for sharing! I am planning to start Nutrisystem after the New Year.

Hi Erin — Thanks so much for the positive feedback. The first time I ever used Nutrisytem, which was many years ago at this point, I think I was one it for 4 months. I had a lot more weight to lose then; now when I sign up, I usually use it for a month, maybe two at the most. To lock in the auto delivery deal, you have to commit to two months, so if you hit your weight loss goals after month 1, I recommend switching your order to just the Turbo Shakes — that will ensure you lock in the most savings, and also helps to keep you on track once you start transitioning off the program.

As I have said before, you have to be committed to the program to get results, but as long as you follow their plan you will lose weight!

Anyways, best of luck and please let us know how it goes: Thanks for sharing your story. Drinking over ounces and eating tons of leafy greens. I did NS about 4 years ago lost almost This past July was told my chloerstral and blood pressure was too high for 28 year old. So black Friday I ordered when prices decreased. Hi Amanda — Thanks for visiting and reading my story. Hope it goes as well this time around. Thanks for sharing your superb review. You have a lot of good info here.

I am looking for a diet to try just after the new year, and this might be the one. Either way, appreciate all of the details you shared. Thanks, just what I was looking for.

I have about 20 pounds to lose — is this doable in a month or two? Hi Sam — Thanks for the positive feedback. Losing 20 pounds is definitely doable with Nutrisystem, but I would budget at least two months. I signed up for Nutrisystem this week, and I am really hoping that I have the same results. I think my first shipment should arrive just before Christmas, so think I will get started right after the holiday.

Thanks so much for the review — definitely gives me hope! Hi Kris — congrats on signing up — while results will vary for everyone, I truly believe that you will lose a lot of weight if you follow the program — so stick with it, and let us know how it goes. They try to rip you off when quit their auto delivery program.

Very very unpleasant people to deal with. They shipped me stuff 3 days after I had already cancelled and had a confirmation number stating I cancelled. They refused to turn the shipment around or to take it back and are trying to create some kind of lie that I created a 2nd account in November and they only cancelled one account.

The only thing I did in November was update my credit card expiration date which I regret. If I guaranteed no more shipments are coming to my name or my address that should be the end of the story, not with them! I am fighting them through my credit card company but please be aware of whatever traps they have in store for any of you.

Hi Troy — Sorry to hear that that was your experience. It was actually a customer service rep who told me I could switch from the meal delivery to just the Turbo Shakes after my first month on the program to lock in the auto-delivery savings without having to commit to another month of food.

In any case, I hope you are able to get things resolved! I started the program today, January 1st. My resolution is to feel better about myself, but do it in a healthy way that had structure.

How much and when I should be eating vegetables, and ideas on what to eat if you have to attend a social function or business based meeting that involves food. Thanks for posting a well written, and information overview of this program.

Hi, I’m Andie Mitchell
