I just got back from a two-week trip to Europe, where I ate some of the best meals I've ever had – the spaghetti in Rome, the tarts in Lisbon, and the countless macarons in Paris. It was amazing. But between that and various other parties and BBQs throughout the summer, I've definitely gained a few pounds.
I've tried many diets throughout the years – juice cleanses, plant-based, calorie-counting, you name it. Some of them went well for some time, but they mostly left me with no energy. Plus, I would always end up binging on junk food – I have such a sweet tooth.
I was frustrated with my body and wanted to get back to my goal weight, but I didn't know if it was possible to live without chocolate especially during the Fall, with endless amounts of Halloween candy, and the kid's school bake sales.
But one thing was for certain - I knew I wanted to lose some pounds before the holiday season, so I started to look up diets that wouldn't be too restrictive. That's when I came across Nutrisystem. I had heard Nutrisystem mentioned before in some magazines, but I just assumed it was another fad diet filled with gimmicks.
After looking on the website, I was left with questions. I mean, the menu looked so yummy I thought it definitely couldn't taste as good as it looked. It included delicious foods like Mac & Cheese AND chocolate muffins. How could some of my favorite guilty pleasures help me lose weight? But after reading multiple articles and success stories, I realized that Nutrisystem really does work, and countless people have achieved weight loss success by following their simple (and delicious) meal plan. The meals are designed by nutritional experts to provide you with the right nutrients while helping you lose weight.
When you enter the website, it asks you to enter your height and weight so you can choose the best plan for your goals. I saw that with all of Nutrisystem's meal plans you eat five to six times a day – which sounds easy for me! So, I decided to sign up for the Uniquely Yours plan - a plan that gives ME the flexibility to choose my breakfasts, lunches, dinners and snacks.
A few days later, my first month's shipment of meals arrived. I was still slightly skeptical on if the food would be as delicious as it looked, and to my surprise, it was amazing! The Cranberry Orange Muffin with mixed nuts goes amazing with a cup of coffee in the morning. My favorite lunch by far is the Hamburger, and the Red Velvet Cupcake as an evening snack is so delicious.
I've finished my first month and I've already lost 10 pounds*. I can safely say this is the easiest diet I've tried so far - all you have to do is follow the meal plan and watch the weight come off. The food is super easy to prepare, and I always look forward to each meal occasion. Not only that, most other diets come with a strict exercise plan. Nutrisystem recommends just 10 minutes of exercise 3 times a day, which I can get in by walking!
With Nutrisystem, you can eat your favorite foods while still losing weight - it's foolproof. The meals are well-balanced with the right amount of proteins, fats, carbs and to leave you feeling full.
It's no wonder Nutrisystem is one of the most well-known weight loss programs. I'd recommend Nutrisystem to anyone who wants to lose weight but struggles with the idea of depriving themselves of their favorite foods.
