About This Item
I decided to try out the 5-day box for one month and see what kind of results I get! Unless you are training for a figure or body building competition where working in the fat-burning zone exclusively helps you preserve every bit of lean body mass, it is best to focus on improving fitness and calorie burn with varying levels of intensity. I sure felt the result after the second day. Although a lower percentage of these calories will come from fat sources, the total number of fat calories burned will likely be the same or greater. You'll also receive a meal planner that includes six dinner recipes to choose from so you can make and eat delicious dinners for you and your family. I already lost 4 pounds.
I really liked each of the items in this package. It's a great price. The fact that it includes family recipes for dinner is so practical! That way I can enjoy the same dinner as my family.
I've bought this three times! Hope they make more like this. AFenwick, August 12, I found very little that I liked at all. Disappointed, August 12, See all 12 reviews See all 11 reviews. Thanks for selling this product. Great weight loss kit. It's easy to follow and comes with all the information you need, including a shopping list.
I lost weight on my first week. Jeanette, July 12, I already lost 4 pounds. I was not expecting much from the 5-day Nutrisystem box, however I was pleasantly surprised by my results. I completely forgot to measure to see how many inches I lose, but I definitely lost 4 pounds.
I decided to try out the 5-day box for one month and see what kind of results I get! Highly recommend and have actually recommended to a couple friends already!

The maximal heart rate is age dependent, for as we grow older, the heart beats a little more slowly.
To find maximal heart rate, subtract your age from The fat burning and cardio zones are defined as a percentage of this maximal heart rate. A heart-rate zone that improves cardiovascular fitness is defined as between 55 and 80 percent of maximum heart rate, according to The American College of Exercise. A less-conditioned individual may see benefits to her heart health at the lower levels of this recommended zone while an athlete needs to work at a higher intensity to improve fitness.
The fat-burning zone occurs at the lower end of the cardio zone—between 55 and 70 percent of maximum heart rate. When working at this intensity, a greater percentage of calories burned comes from stored fat.
