the Nutrisystem dietThis is a diet food delivery company that has been in existence since the 1970s and in well over 30 years has helped countless thousands of people to lose weight using their special diet system of ready made, individually packaged and delivered to your door meals. This article takes a look at how this system works and what you can come to expect from the Nutrisystem diet.

The main feature of the Nutrisystem diet is in its convenience. The basis for all their different menus is that they are delivered to your home in batches of 28 days supply of three meals plus desserts for the main meal and two snacks that can be eaten per day.

The different types of diet plan are designed to cater for different groups of people and are broken down into plans for men and plans for women. These are further sub divided into plans for vegetarians, diabetics, those over 60 (named Silver plans) as well as variations of the main diets with some coming as frozen meals and others providing the customer with great flexibility in being able to order specific meals.

When the meals arrive at your home, it is your responsibility to ensure they are stored in a suitable place. For most meals, that would be a cool pantry or somewhere similar that stays cool and dry. Some meals require storage in a freezer, particularly those in their Select plans. You will also need a microwave to heat up those meals that need to be hot and that's about it. The rest is simply a case of taking each meal from its packaging at the required time and eating it after following the instructions, such as whether it needs to be heated first etc.

Nutrisystem Meals

The quality of the meals will vary and you should not expect to be eating gourmet meals. When meals are prepared and packaged for eating later, something is always lost and they will not compare to home cooked meals. Similarly, the size of the meals will seem small to many people, especially those that have become accustomed to eating large meals. You have to remember that eating large meals is probably part of the reason that your are overweight in the first place, so you are going to have to get used to eating less if you really want to lose weight.

If the meal size is a real issue for you, the company itself makes some recommendations of which foods you can add to the meals to increase their bulk without significantly increasing their calorie count. They will include green vegetables, some salad foods etc. they are recommendations only and that does not mean you have to go out and buy everything on their list! In fact to do that would increase the cost of the diet, so if cost is an issue for you, the best thing is to try to stick to just eating the meals that are shipped to you.

Nutrisystem Cost

The cost of the diet can be offset considerably because the food completely replaces your regular grocery bill for those 28 days. If you work out what you would normally spent in that time on all your food, then deduct it from the cost of your diet plan, you will see a significant reduction in what that diet is costing you. In some cases, it even works out cheaper to eat Nutrisystem meals!

But if you stick with it and follow the instructions to the letter, you should expect to lose between 1-2 pounds in weight per week while you are on the diet.
