I had a set back and gained weight last week, so I worked extra hard this week to lose those pounds and be totally back on track. Did I have success? Well, you have to read to the end of the post to find that out, because right now I want to talk about what I get asked the most about with Nutrisystem; the food. Everyone who says I look great and hears that I am on Nutrisystem wants to know about the food. Many of you have messaged, emailed and commented, so I figure it is about time to talk about the food.
I should start out by saying that I am a very picky eater normally. I do not eat things like fish or cheese (except on pizza). When I like something, I eat it a lot. This has been the case with Nutrisystem. I have definitely found my favorites.
My favorite meals are probably the breakfast foods. It is how I am satisfying my sweet tooth. I really like the muffins, especially the Double Chocolate and Cinnamon Streusel Muffin! Yum! When I am on the go, I eat a Cinnamon Bun Bar. It is so good. I also really like the pancakes that I make from the Pancake Mix, the frozen French Toast and frozen Waffles. I use a store brand sugar-free syrup and am delighted every time.
For lunch, I usually eat a salad and a Nutrisystem lunch bar or one of the Nutrisystem soups. The lunch bars that I really like are the Double Chocolate Caramel Bar and the Fudge Graham Bar. Can you even imagine? It's like dessert at lunch! For soups, I like to eat the Chicken Noodle Soup, Homestyle Chicken Soup and White Bean Chicken Chili. I also pair these with a salad and really get full and satisfied.
For dinners, there is such a big selection. One of my favorites is the Flame Broiled Beef Patty. I love being able to eat it with a lite, fiber rich bun and load on the onions and peppers. I pair it with a salad, and other steamed veggies, and sometimes can't even finish the meal. I like the pizzas too. They come with the crust and you add the ingredients, so I can control the cheese. I cheat and use my own homemade pizza sauce, which is basically spiced up tomato sauce that I make on my own. It is very low in calorie and really good. I had to get used to the small size, but I customize it and again, load on the veggies. I like quite a few of the frozen dinners. My favorites include the Ginger Cashew Chicken, Turkey Medallions and Salisbury Steak.
I love the protein shakes and have a chocolate or vanilla shake every morning. I have learned to customize those with sugar free syrups and drink mixes. I use a blender, though you don't have to because Nutrisystem gives you a little shaker that really thickens up the mix, but I like a full on thick shake, so the blender it is. I love using a sugar free orange drink mix with the vanilla shake mix to make an Orange Julius-like drink. It is so frothy good! And cherry and raspberry sugar free syrups are so good in the chocolate milkshake mix.
The desserts are all so good too. I don't think I have tried one that I haven't liked. I really like the frozen treats including the Chocolate Brownie Sundae, the Creamy Fudge Bar and Orange Creme Bar. I really like the cookies too. I even get to snack on a bag of buttered popcorn when I have a craving and it really hits the spot.
So, how did I do staying on track this week? I am so excited to share that I lost 4 pounds this week, bringing my total to 16 pounds lost. I am happy that I am back on track, lost those 3 pounds I gained, and plan to stay on my Nutrisystem journey to meet my weight loss goals.
