Just finished month 1. I feel great and I am beginning to look great. Losing weight is first and foremost an issue of eating the right amount of calories energy. You bet, thanks Jack! Hope it goes as well this time around.
What Makes Freshly Different
This weight loss plan has the best variety and one of the biggest selections of menu options. Choose from over foods. To help you out I will list a few of my personal favorites.
Okay for breakfast I loved the double chocolate muffin. Be sure to put this in the microwave for a few seconds. Trust you will be happy you did. Also liked the buttermilk waffles, the thick french toast and granola bars worked well on the run. For lunch I like their pizzas, the pepperoni pizza melts and again the granola bars for when I am on the go.
Preparing these foods is very easy. A microwave is a great tool and fast time saver on this diet. I was surprisingly impressed with the chicken parm dinner. Truly one of my favorites and I would order a few with each delivery. Also with this pizza, I was pleasantly surprised with the flavor. Thank goodness diets have come a long way. No need to choke down poor tasting foods and shakes. Because now you can eat real tasting foods that you are sure to love.
You can still see all customer reviews for the product. By Falconbrother on July 6, This is actually a good plan because you get the card and then you go on Nutrisystem's web site. The Nutrisystem website offers ratings on the food items. Trust me, you don't want them telling you what you're going to be eating. This plan is weekdays only. So, weekends are on your own. I way prefer this. Years ago my wife and I did the full plan and the auto-ship thing.
We ended up with a ton of uneaten, expensive food. On this plan I can accomplish several goals. On this, I order food when I'm ready so, if we go on vacation I don't have a shipment sitting on my front porch in the rain for a week and I'm not accumulating a lot of expensive food I can't eat.
I know I have two days a week to plan out potential restaurant trips. The weekends on your own works far better for me. This plan teaches me to eat right even when not eating Nutrisystem's food and I'm getting better at it. The weight loss is not real fast. I am on week 11 and I have lost 21 pounds. But, there was no starvation involved.
I eat a lot of salads and I always keep good apples around to snack on. I haven't been exercising any more than I was before. On the weekends I may cheat a little but, I never go crazy. I haven't had a regular soda, any sweets outside of Nutrisystems snacks and I order wisely at restaurants. There are lots of Nutrisystem compliant options wherever I go. For example, I can go to McDonalds. I'll order a hamburger, the base model, a side salad with fat free dressing and a diet coke.
It's enough food and, in my world, is Nutrisystem compliant. On my weekends I eat a lot of salads and grilled fish or chicken. Nutrisystem is pretty wonderful in one aspect, may favorite: I realize that I had be programed to expect too much food. We're eating too much food, period. On my first morning this round of Nutrisystem I opened the granola cereal packet and dumped it in a bowl.
I thought "This ain't enough". But, guess what, it was. The process of re-programing myself took a couple of weeks, maybe that entire month to really get used to portion control.
But, now I have gotten used to it I like it. Now when I go to a restaurant and see how much food they put on a plate it just gets me. No wonder Americans can't control their weight. We are programmed to think that we need way more food than we do. Also, now I really enjoy food so much more. My taste buds must be working better but, I enjoy food more while eating far less and no cheap, junk foods.
My weekday looks like this. I have become fond of the muffins. They are easy and quick. The menu changes weekly, so there are new breakfast, lunch or dinner options every time you stop by. With dozens of dishes available every week, you always get to try at least one or two new dishes and revisit something you already ordered and enjoyed. If you need some help picking the best dishes, you can check out which meals are marked as Top Rated and rely on the experience of other happy customers.

With plenty of protein, its meals keep you feeling full for longer and help your body burn fat much quicker, so you feel light and energized throughout the day. Freshly is unique in its efforts to give proteins the glory they deserve.
Its diet philosophy has its roots in the Paleo diet. It highlights the importance of proteins in regard to feeling energized and losing weight more easily. By that, we primarily mean carbs and processed sugars, which seem to be the cornerstone of the modern diet. More protein, combined with fewer carbs and sugar, means more energy, easier fat burning, and above all, a healthier body.
