So, sadly I slacked last week and didn’t make a week 2 update. I did lose weight, and I am super excited about how much I have lost.
So the 1st week on the actual Nutrisystem plan, I thought I was eating way to much. After talking with my counselor, about having to eat more than 1800 calories a day. I was eating almost every 10 minutes it felt like.
My eating plan looked list this first:
Breakfast: Nutrisystem Breakfast with one Power Fuel and One Smart Carb.
Morning Snack: Power Fuel and Smart Carb
Lunch: Nutrisystem Lunch with one Power Fuel and One Smart Carb.
Afternoon Snack: Power Fuel and Smart Carb.
Dinner: Nutrisystem Dinner with one Power Fuel and One Smart Carb.
Dessert: Nutrisystem Dessert.
On top of all of that, I also still needed to eat 4 green veggies and 8 glasses of water. It was entirely too much to eat. So after talking with my counselor, I was moved to a 1500-1799 calorie plan which is much more easier to handle. This is what my new meal plan looks like:
Breakfast: Nutrisystem Breakfast and One Powerfuel.
Morning Snack: One Powerfuel and One Smart Carb.
Lunch: Nutrisystem Lunch
Afternoon Snack: One Powerfuel and One SmartCarb.
Dinner: Nutrisystem Dinner and one Powerfuel and One Smartcarb.
Dessert: Nutrisystem Dessert.
I can have 4+ Non Starchy Veggies, up to 3 extras, and unlimited Free Foods.
Here is a list of examples of PowerFuels: 1/4 cup or 1 slice of light cheese, String Cheese, 1 cup Cottage Cheese, 1 Egg, 2oz lean meat, 1 cup fat free or low fat milk, 2tbs Nuts, 1 tbsp peanut butter, and 1 cup of yogurt. I get 4 of these a day.
Here is a list of examples of SmartCarbs: 1 slice whole-grain or multigrain bread, 1/2 cup of cereal, 1/4 cup of whole-grain crackers, 1/4 cup of dried fruits, 1 english muffin, 1 medium piece of 1 cup of fruit, 1/2 cup of fruit juice (no more than 1 cup per day), 1/4 cup Hummus, Starchy Veggies (which include beans, corn, peas, potatoes, and split peas). I get to have 3 of these a day.
On top of my meals, I felt very full at the end of everyday. The past 2 weeks I have gotten to try a lot of the foods and have been keeping a log of what I liked, what I loved, and what I didn’t like. Here is just a few:
Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal – Loved
Apple Strudel bar – OK, not something I would order again.

I am sad to say that so far, lunch and dessert has not been that great to me. This month I didn’t get to decide which foods I wanted to order. This month I did and I am looking forward to White Chocolate Chunk Cookies, Chocolate Cupcake, Cheesecake Flavored Bar, Chef’s Table Orzo, Shrimp, and Lobster Langostino, Chicken & Bacon Ranch Pizza, Sweet & Sour Chicken, Hamburger, Grilled Chicken Sandwich, Biscottie Bites, Chocolate Frosted Donut, and Pancake Mix. I can’t wait to share my next weeks result.
So now on to the weigh in. Please remember that this is in a 2 weeks time period. This was lost over the course of 2 weeks. I do Zumba for 30 minutes 5 times a week as well as drink as much water as I can a day.
Starting Weight: 220.6
Week 1: 213.4
Week 3: 209.4
That is a total of 11.2 lbs in 3 weeks!!! We went out to eat a lot the past two weeks too, so I was able to incorporate real food in with my Nutrisystem and still see weight loss.
