Since starting the site, I've received so many reviews from other Nutrisystem customers that it only made sense to allow everyone to share their experiences - the good and the bad. I've got to admit, I didn't read all of it. Arcita May 7, at 8: All I have to do is follow the basic directions for following the plan and eat the Nutrisystem foods. My main, number one focus is fat loss, and as we all know you cannot serve two masters so I'm going to pay homage to that philosophy and get down to a base stock. But giving up sugar and starches are ok.
Ranks & Geography
A cholesterol level of can make you five times more likely to suffer from a heart attack as someone with a level of A doctor tests your cholesterol level by taking blood and having it analyzed.
Knowing the risks, what are the correct cholesterol guidelines? With a total cholesterol level of less than , you have a low risk of having a heart attack unless you have other risk factors.
Almost half of adult Americans fall in this category. Of the others, almost one third of Americans fall within the borderline high risk category and the rest are in the high risk category. There are two different types of cholesterol — one bad and one good.
Low-density lipoprotein LDL is the one that, if increased, will increase your chances of having a heart attack. If your LDL is high, the doctor may ask you to go on a diet that is low in saturated fats and cholesterol as well as start an exercise program. High-density lipoprotein HDL is the good cholesterol. HDL levels of less than 40 puts you at risk for heart disease.
Things like smoking, being overweight, and lack of exercise can lower your HDL levels. Your doctor should also mention your triglyceride level. Some people who have high triglycerides have underlying problems such as disease or genetic disorders and may be required to change their lifestyles in order to lower their level. You will need to supplement Lunch and Dinner with either 2 cups of raw veggies or 1 cup of cooked veggies! I happen to be a big fan of zucchini, cauliflower, broccoli and squash so this isn't a problem for me but, it is something to keep in mind.
Breakfast was the maple oatmeal which was a little sweet and supposed to be cooked with fat free milk. I didn't have that so, it was cooked with water. It might be less sweet with milk? For lunch, I had the tuna salad over chopped romaine with cucumbers. It was really tasty and I loved the water chestnuts in the package. I was really hungry by 3PM, but I remembered to make the Turboshake and was ok. Dinner was the meat ravioli with zucchini.
I really was not a fan, but I didn't feel hungry after so that was good. Breakfast was the biscotti bites, which I felt like were nice as a snack but maybe would not be satisfying for everyone. They were sweet and crunchy, but I could tell they had packed some protein powder in them. I was really under calories yesterday, so I had a soft boiled egg a little after. Lunch was the loaded mashed potatoes, that I mixed in a cup of steamed broccoli.
I used to eat instant mashed potatoes as a very poor college student during cram sessions; these are worse. My favorite part was the broccoli. The whole thing had a very odd powdered cheese taste and the 'bacon bits' were super hard. I'm glad I got that one out of the way. Dinner was the Hearty Beef Stew. It took a little longer than the 90 seconds-ish to heat up but ended up not being too bad for canned soup.
Breakfast was the Cinnamon Raisin Baked Bar. Very strong protein bar taste. Not too sweet though. Lunch was broccoli cheese rice.
Honestly, I was looking forward to this and I think I just can't get over the powdered cheese that keeps popping up. I ended up mixing in my broccoli and squash to help the taste. I was super hungry at that point so it did not feel like enough. Dinner was the pasta fagioli, which I honestly thought was really good! I added a dash of garlic powder, but really enjoyed it overall. I had the rest of my steamed broccoli and squash from lunch with it. Breakfast is the Apple Strudel Bar-this is the best bar so far.
I wish I had another one. Its sweet but exactly what I was craving this morning! Lunch was my favorite so far too- white cheddar mac and cheese. Wish I was looking forward to another of these tomorrow instead of the chocolate fudge bar. I also figured out that I like the Turboshake much better when I have blended it with the ice and water instead of just shaking it. It turned out light and fluffy! I had the meatballs 4 with marinara over some zoodles and chopped red pepper.
Side of broccoli slaw topped with salsa. It could have used more sauce and the meatballs were very soft. Day 5 Final Day: Peanut butter granola bar for breakfast was TINY and very sweet.
Do I sound upset? A bar and a salad is not my favorite lunch ever. Dinner was the chicken pasta parmesan which was surprisingly good! Big squares of chicken and the sauce tasted like real cheese. Anyway, this was my very long and in depth review. I hope it was helpful and gives you an idea of what the food is like. I would do it again but will probably give myself a break at this point. I didn't have a lot of social commitments during the week, but this would be hard to sustain had I been more active or coming and going through the week.
I liked the portion control and didn't often feel hungry when I went to bed, but I just got tired of breakfast bars and processed cheese. It was great to have veggies as sides at least. I also don't have a scale so, I have no idea if I lost any weight.
It was just 5 days so, how much could it really be? I feel a little less puffy? Anyway, it was convenient and not very expensive. Would recommend for a quick reset, but you'll be burnt out by the end of the week probably. The tuna was disgusting, the beef stew looked like cat food and tasted horrible! It did help me understand that portion control is key as most of us I think tend to eat nearly 3 x what an average portion should be. I really like not having to think about cooking and you do seem to be eating all the time I'm glad I did it but int he future I would have to buy the food separately because man some of it was really bad!
I wanted to lose 10 pounds and try the Nutrisystem products and this was the perfect solution! The food was delicious and I lost 8 pounds! I ordered a second week to lose the rest of my weight!
This is my favorite of the Amazon available Nutrisystem 5 day system. This is a great way to try the Nutrisystem program before you commit to the entire program.
It is easy to follow and all you need is to buy vegetables to add to your dinner. Just received today, already perturbed. This is marketed as a complete Jumpstart.
