Hi Corburt — Thanks for the kind words, and best of luck with your first month — hope it goes well! Continued Salad Dressing Calories. We had to take Nutrisystem program for 8 weeks because we got it at a discount thru our insurance company. July 13, at 7: August 9, at Went with the Core, and really hoping to least a good 20 pounds. I made some raspberry coffee and chilled it.
Keep your salad luscious and low-fat
They picture themselves having toast without butter or jelly, bagels with out cream cheese, sandwiches without mustard, and salads without any dressing. The truth is, you are allowed to have well chosen condiments within moderation. Like all of the foods, condiments are broken down into a category.
And here is where choosing carefully can be very important. If you can find a condiment item that is below 10 calories per serving, then it is unlimited. You can have all you want.
Now, to be fair, few people are going to need to have condiments much more than three times per day. Sometimes I would have it a bit before dinner, with dinner and other day a while after dinner.
This here is the Chicken Alfredo dinner with sauteed mushrooms and roma tomatoes and a side of broccoli. This wasn't my favorite dinner but it was definitely edible and fulfilling: The Chicken Pot Pie dinner I totally forgot to photograph but if you watch my video you can see me prepare it - I don't even like pot pie and this was really really good!!!
As far as water intake the no calorie flavor drops I talked about in last weeks post are a total life saver to getting me to actively drink more. Not because I don't like water but just reminding myself to keep drinking it and that it would be yummy too.
I wrote most of this post sporadically through out the week. I am going through and spell checking but am keeping the raw thoughts as they were written. It is not glamorous. You will probably feel shaking irritable and get a empty belly feeling often if you do not eat your meals and snacks at the right times. After the first few days you get the hang of your bodies hunger signs before it turns into a full blown starving feeling.
Expect to be going to the bathroom more. Especially if you are enjoying your fair share of broccoli like I have. The food is actually pretty good!
I half expected the food to be pinch your nose terrible and aside from the Kung Pao noodles which were just bland everything else has tasted really good! You NEED to add in tons of non-starchy veggies to make it through the week and not be miserable.
I recommend spreading them through out the day too. Because if you don't and you just sit there eating them all at once you will just get that ' I am still hungry but can't eat another bite of this syndrome. Spacing your meals put at regular intervals will help this first week feel and be more manageable. ALSO it is so true that the slower you eat the fuller you feel. I am a firm believer of this. Don't forget to follow me on Instagram where I post fun pictures of the foods I am eating!
Do not give up in yourself. You can do this!!! I was very tempted to give in and have some 4th of July BBQ, or some fried dough at the concert I went to but I didn't and knowing I gave the first week my all is the best feeling!
Prove to yourself that you can do this for yourself at least for the first week then go back and assess whether you want or can move forward. You are stronger than you know! You ordered the program already so do it right and put in the effort this program deserves so that you may be successful. I had the willpower to forgo these delicious dessert for a Craving Crusher shake - You can too!!!
Throw out all your fav foods before starting this program, if you can. June 25, at 4: June 25, at 8: June 27, at 3: These are my favorite items. I have to make this this weekend!! June 27, at 9: June 27, at All things I love!
