Nutrisystem Protein-Powered Favorites 5-day weight loss kit. The big magic trick in the box were snacks and desserts that contained good levels of protein, something that is hard to find off the grocery store shelf. All effort is made into providing full transparency, not all available products or companies are highlighted.
On Nutrisystem you add in fresh grocery items. Explore this item Specifications Features No. Total Fat 3 G 5 Saturated Fat 1. The food is okay. The diet is based on portion control. This pack provides a breakfast, lunch, dinner, and nightly snack. You must purchase your own food for mid morning and afternoon snacks. The program is pretty simple- eat what they send and what they tell you to eat and you will lose weight. I have dropped ten pounds.
I feel it is overpriced for what is included. You can buy your own groceries and do the same thing on your own for much cheaper. Limit main dishes to one cup portions and eat salads or half cup portions of green veggies with it. And for snacks eat a protein and a carbohydrate. You basically balance snacks and meals to total calories per day. So as you can see- nothing special. By keeping an entee in one cup portions and eating a small one cup green salad with it- you can do it on your own without all of the calorie counting.
For snacks get peanut butter Fiber One bars or Fiber One Brownies or eat a fruit with a small handful of nuts. You will get the same results. Tammy, February 24, Best 5 day diet system! I tried Nutrisystem because I wanted to lose a few pounds. If you follow what the program says then you will lose the weight quickly. The kit comes with 5 of each breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert.
I couldn't eat a few of the meals and had to find a substitute. That was by far the worst part about this box. For example, I do not eat tuna fish. You do have to buy a lot of 'extras' to round off your meals. You will need to buy fruits and veggies, yogurt, nuts, string cheese, etc.
The Nutrisystem website helps a lot. They have a list of foods you can substitute if you don't want to eat the same thing each day. I really liked these. They were super small! But it shows that people aren't aware of portion sizes. The lunches were ok. I liked the pot pie. I was a fan of the pound cake. I did not like the Mac and cheese. The directions were weird boil water, put in water in Mac and cheese and let sit for a few minutes.
After the suggested time the noodles still weren't cooked. Highly Recommend this Starter Program!! This five-day starter box was a great start to a great program. As with any diet, the first couple days are the hardest, but the meals are packaged wonderfully and are very convenient. The five-day starter box has a variety of different food types to give an idea of the tastes. After completing my five-day starter program, I decided to order a month supply directly from Nutrisystem.
If you have never tried Nutrisystem, I think the starter box is a great way to get introduced. However, if you try the box and like some but not all the foods, then keep going and sign up for the service on-line to customize your food.
Everyone's tastes are different so being able to customize what foods you want is a very nice feature of ordering on-line after you've tried the starter program. This program has taught me portion control and I'm losing weight and feeling better. I would highly recommend this program to everyone!
Fluffyissofluffy, July 25, I have purchased this packet for 3 weeks. I have followed it almost to the letter. There have been a few slip ups and I have swapped out a vegetable they recommend for one I love. I have lost That is also buying it, using it for 5 days then my own food for 2 days then back on for the next 5, etc. I am pleased with the food. The only one I could live without and am not too fond of is the chicken alfredo.
I do add a tad bit of garlic powder to it and that makes a world of difference. The rest of the food is pretty darn good. I'm so thrilled with my overall outcome of this sample packet, I'm biting the bullet and joining NutriSystem next week. Good luck to everyone. I know what a battle this is and I'm excited about this.
Thanks WalMart and NutriSystem for giving us the opportunity to try it before we buy it. Bearskin, July 28, I love this program! I have been thinking about trying Nutrisystem for a few months now. I finally saw this package and decided to buy it. They where out of the regular package so I got the nutrisystem D package. I was surprised that some of the food is very tasty. My favorites are the potatoes, thin mint bar, rice and beans, and the lasagna.
There where a few things that I did not find tasty but it was still edible. I love that you can add some of your own foods. This is not a starvation diet.
