ns on the road
The shake is designed for the go-getter in you who would always want to stay fit while juggling work and family responsibilities. Well, need we say more? Thanks, cotterpin I do see this as a temporary measure. Misleading that the parcel is in India customs, they are sorry for it, and I need to wait for 60 business days! These are all sealed and do not require refrigeration at all. Kabeetz got it right, you'll lose weight on it but not a long term solution. How many meals do you buy in their packages?
Their shouldnt be a problem with it interfearing. Upping the protein like you are might be a good idea if you are working out hard.
Well, actually, it's given me a better idea about portion sizes than I had before. Not only seeing the pre-packaged meals, but because of the items they have you add. I know how to cook healthy, that's not a problem. But time is definitely a factor.
I wouldn't trust anything they call a full meal that has a shelf life of months. Smart ones and lean cuisines are portion controlled too, but I wouldn't rely on those either.
And if these are still your current stats here: I agree with upping the protein as well, how are you doing this so far? Another 2oz of chicken breast etc etc???? I would start incorporating less and less of the Nutrisystem meals and more home cooked food as time goes on. Thanks, cotterpin I do see this as a temporary measure. It's a vast improvement over the habit I started when I was visiting my mom in the hospital every day of stopping for fast food, and doing a lot of emotional eating.
I love to cook, and do when I have time. I prepare meals on the weekends and have them portioned out during the week. I'm a former chef, so really, cooking is not a problem - most of the time. But a lot of that weekend time is now blown away because I'm training for a 60 mile walk in two months.
When I'm walking a long distance, I add an extra snack if an organic protein bar with oats and a piece of fruit, plus I add an extra meal or two 8 oz of chicken or lean beef or fish, beans or brown rice, nuts or oilve oil, and a salad or a cup or two of veggies I may also ass a protein shake on those days, usually micellar, before bed When I work out for more than an hour, I make sure I add about cals, though that often is a post-workout shake fruit, yogurt, whey The extra protein I add is usually chicken or tuna more like oz.
Of course, this is in addition to the addition of fresh fruit and cottage cheese or yogurt or turkey bacon or soy sausage or something at breakfast, the 2-oz of protein usually chicken or tuna and large salad about 3 cups of greens and other veggies at lunch, the fresh fruit and protein or dairy as a snack, and the fibrous carbs usually about 2 cups and good fat at dinner.
The walk will be finished in October. And then I will no longer be spending obscene amounts of time walking to train, and I will start to shift away from the NutriSystem meals. And shift to doing 2 days of cardio and 3 days full-body with weights. I agree that the powders and mixes are probably not the way for smart sustained loss. I think if you set your mind to it you can watch your food intake and make the best choices and achieve the clean calorie intake you desire for your wweight loss.
Just read these post and find the good foods to eat. Things like eggs, oatmeal, water, almonds, spinach, grilled chicken, grilled salmon, vegies, and anything that man has not put his hands on to make it taste better. If you watch your portion sizes you will be better off with real foods in the long run and maybe supp.
I really liked the nutrisystems for traveling. I travel weeks a month and always carry some of their stuff just becuase it may be the healthiest thing I'll be able to find Your only as strong as your weakest moment. When you feel weak remember your goals, smile and keep going. I think I will end up ordering a few of their items to have on hand for those days when I need to just grab something, or when travelling.
Two more months on the full plan, but then going as clean as I can. Read more or register here to join the discussion below Please complete this form and click the button below to gain instant access.
