Nutrisystem Feels Like Cheating
I’ve been eating the Nutrisystem food for a bit now and I must say it tastes a lot better than I expected. One of the things that bothers me, but I guess it’s something I need to deal with, is that the food makes me feel as if I’m cheating. Why, you ask?
Well, the foods I’m eating are very similar to everyday foods I eat when I’m not “taking care” of myself. Cookies, brownies, pastas, hot dogs, and the list goes on. Keep in mind though, that the calories and breakdown are significantly lower with Nutrisystem foods, than with the regular equivalents of those very same foods. So that’s a plus. It’s also well planned and takes the Glycemic Index into account. You also have to incorporate fuits, veggies, and some other healthier alternatives.
Basically, it’s not just eating 3 Nutrisystem meal packs a day and that’s all. You’d be starving if you did that since most of their foods do not contain more than 300 calories, sometimes no more than 200 calories a pop. They encourage, rather demand, that you eat other foods in combination with their own.
I’m getting used to it, so I think I’ll be fine.
I still can’t help feel like that granola bar I just ate or that chocolate chip walnut cookie I’m going to eat for desert is bad for me. 🙂
