About This Item
This is why Mr Obama or the Congress should create an Agency for the Elderly across America with people who are trained who have the compassion to do this kind of work with the elderly.
Please build them NOW before it is too late. Unemployment would go away building DR s and NHFTE Nursing Homes For the Elderly who are so desperately crying out for help but no can hear them especially when they cant say too much with heart attacks or strokes.
They should be treated with dignity to live out their lives with the same attention that Professional Atheletes give to the young in Cancer Centers etc. We will have a healthy country of people then who can shown compassion for the elderly at the same time.
There is time now to right the wrong for unemployment to go away along with having a healthy America to erase obesity and diabetes in America. The Economy would be great. Not to be a stooge, but why would you ask Obama to do these things?
That is a private industry and should be left in the private sector so that the money made goes back into the community, not into politician's pockets. With that being said, I think you have a great idea on the diabetic diners, so you could start looking into that need and start up the business of your own.
I think it would be a great niche and we could fill the place of the cooks, wait staff and management. Diabetics working for diabetics. What a cool concept. This is the kind of ingenuity that our country needs to get back on it's feet. It is going to come from individuals, not the government. I say, go for it Tom! Let us know when the first one opens and when the franchises will be available.
We don't need another govt. I'm with you Gabby, Cook your own whole foods and D safe meals. Its not as hard as it sounds. As my Father used to say when I was growing up. Going and purchasing Nutra-processed foods or WeightWatchers - Processed foods seems such a waste of good money and time. Your meal plan has been designed to give you all the essential nutrients needed for optimal nutrition as well as for safe and effective weight loss. Do I need to eat vegetables and fruit while on the program?
NutriSystem is all about healthy weight loss and learning about and maintaining a balanced diet. Strongly recommended that as part of your program, you include a variety of fruit and vegetables for optimal health, as well as fresh dairy servings. Further, the NutriSystem meal plans: Do I need to put my Nutrisystem Advanced foods in the freezer or refrigerator?
How should I store my NutriSystem foods? Stored at room temperature in a cupboard or on the countertop. Many people also keep a stash at work or anywhere they may want to have healthy meals and snacks handy.
How do I prepare my NutriSystem foods? Each food item has specific preparation instructions on its box or container and takes just minutes to prepare. Most of the foods can be cooked in the microwave or on the stovetop. Some require the addition of hot water, and others are ready to eat as-delivered bars and snacks. I have been on this 1 week and I love all the food so far..
I bought the 5 day starter packs 3 of them and the food is palatable, some very good. It is easy to follow and the first week I lost 2. I have noticed my fasting blood sugar is higher and even though I'm on the D diabetic plan there are tons of carbs. I intend to continue thru the packs I have then make a decision about continuing. The weight will have to come off and the blood sugar go down if it's a go.
I might change to the new Atkins program that allows for 40 grams of carbs a day. I want to place my next order. I can't seem to get on the correct page to do this. Just joined this website a few minutes ago. I've been on Nutrisystem off and on for about 20 years. I did not join as a diabetic but I'm not switching plans as I checked food for food on both plans and I'm ok; I'm not ordering anything that's NOT on the diabetic plan so I'm ok with the Woman's Plan. My opinion on Nutrisystem is this: That's been the main reason why I stopped the plan over the years, it got very expensive.
Cost aside, I really like the food buttered popcorn is to die for and yes it's on the diabetic plan also , there's enough of a variety for anyone. I believe that once I loose all my weight 20 down, 15 to go , since I am now a diabetic I will be keeping the weight off and not go back to my old eating habits crossing my fingers on this of course when I go off Nutrisystem.
So, bottom line - main con is Cost. The glycemic index does not consider the glycemic load. Sure, carrots are high on the glycemic index, but you'd have to load 3 REALLY large raw carrots to get a slight increase in blood sugar.
I find nutrisystem to be misleading. ANYone can prepare a diabetes friendly menu with some education and a trip to the store to get the good foods, for a lot less that NS. It's all in portion sizes, and you can cook the correct portions yourself for much less.
There are NO "you can't have it" foods on a 'diabetic diet. Just healthy cooking the foods you like and stepping away from the table a little sooner. If you are presented with a fake cookie alongside a real cookie, I would wager many people would eat the 'diet cookie has just as many carbs as a regular cookie, by the way and then eat the REAL cookie too, because it's more satisfying.
See your local diabetes educator for more details. I dont need to lose alot of weight but need to reduce sugars and retrain myself to eat right will this work. I am a person who can eat anything.
I have liked everything in my diet plan. I am fat because I can eat everything and what I get from Nutrisystem is consistency,eat this and this and this. This is my new medicine. About 10 months ago I weighed in at pounds. Had been diagnosed with type-2 diabetes as well as hypertension. I'm a single dad with two boys counting on me to be there. I saw the nutri-system - D plan on television one day, but simply couldn't see myself ever being able to afford it on my income. Eventually, I came to the realization that I couldn't afford not to try it.
