Week 1 on Nutrisystem #NSNation

Friday, February 8, 2013

Well, it was my first week on Nutrisystem and it was definitely an adjustment for me. I must say I thoroughly enjoy the Daily Planner they sent me, which lets me log everything I eat and help gives me a guideline what to eat and when. 

The main thing I've learned so far is that it's okay to snack throughout the day as long as it's healthy.  There are SmartCarbs, PowerFuel, and Vegetables that I can choose from and so far I have been doing a great job trying several different healthy snacks. 

My day usually goes like this:
-Nutrisystem Breakfast
-Nutrisystem Protein Shake (Which are amazing and very filling without the typical Protein shake after taste!)

-PowerFuel as a snack - Almonds

-Nutrisystem Lunch
-PowerFuel - usually string cheese

-SmartCarb afternoon snack - Banana or clementines

-Nutrisystem Dinner
-SmartCarb- whole weat roll

-Nutrisystem Dessert

My first week I had ravioli and risotto as my dinners and I must say they were delicious and filling and I couldn't even tell I was eating "diet foods".  The lunches I had so far were pasta and baked potatoes and they were very filling and helped me during the day at work. 

A major thing I need to work on is drinking more water and lucky for me, Nutrisystem included a huge water bottle that I am to drink 2 bottles of daily which would equal out to 8 glasses of water.  This makes it so much easier for me. 

But my favorite part of this all is the awesome grocery guide from the Nutrisystem website that breaks down what kind of foods I can get as SmartCarbs and PowerFuels and even veggies so it gives me a lot of options and tells me the correct portion! 

While it's difficult to adjust to not eating super filling junk foods, I am definitely seeing a change in my body and I feel much healthier.  Oh, and I lost 2 lbs in one week!! Yep, 7 days and 2 lbs! I am so friggin excited!  On to week 2!
