What I Eat In A Day - With Nutrisystem®

Every diet on the market? I’ve tried it—I’ve paid a lot of money for an over-hyped meal tracking app, saved up all my points so I could have one slice of pizza, and then nothing. I know they’ve always said losing weight as you grow older is more difficult, but I didn’t think I’d be struggling this much. To make matters even more difficult, I’ve been watching my husband go on Nutrisystem® and the weight’s practically falling off for him!

I’ve even seen some of the meals he’s eaten: Lemon Caper Chicken, Merlot Beef with Root Vegetables... It makes my tiny salads look pathetic. He keeps telling me time and time again I need to try Nutrisystem® instead of going on my weird restrictive diets that just turn out to be hoaxes anyway. After seeing him eat one of Nutrisystem’s® Chocolate Brownie Sundaes, I jumped online and signed up for my own Nutrisystem® plan.

Nutrisystem® is the helping hand I needed and continually provides all the guidance and skills that keep me on track. When starting a new diet, I always prepared myself for bland food and intense cravings that sent me back to junk food and takeout. Nutrisystem® changed my view on starting a diet. Their food looks compelling and is far from bland—it’s seriously yummy! I have zero cravings, their food is that good. Nutrisystem® has everything the other diet programs have but much more, and it works long-term thanks to their high-protein meals with lower-glycemic nutrition that work to control hunger and keep your blood sugar steady.

To show you just how excellent Nutrisystem®is at helping you hit your targets while still delivering mouth-watering meals, here’s what I eat on a typical Nutrisystem® day:

Breakfast - Superfood Smoothie Bowl

I never considered a smoothie as a meal until I tried this one! The Superfood Smoothie Mix from Nutrisystem® provides the sweet taste of strawberries and is more than enough to keep me full until it’s time to eat again. It’s so great when I want a sweet breakfast! I love to top it with nuts, seeds, and my favorite fresh fruits.

Snack - Smoky BBQ Crisps

Snacking used to be my downfall every time I tried a diet. In between meals I would be so hungry that I would end up cheating. Now, Nutrisystem® makes sure I never feel hungry - they even recommend I eat six times a day. I used to love potato chips, but I’ve made the switch to Nutrisystem®’s Smoky BBQ Crisps. They’re crunchy and super flavorful—an on-the-go snack that my taste buds adore. I haven’t even reached for a bag of chips since trying them!

On previous diets, I felt terrible when I cheated with chips. It was always too many points or over my calorie limit for the day. With Nutrisystem® I don't have to worry about cheating since their snacks are delicious, and the pre-packaged portions are full of nutrients to keep me full for longer. It takes such a weight off my shoulders knowing that I can grab a snack and go without veering away from my goals.

Lunch - New BBQ Chicken Burrito

Who doesn’t love a BBQ Chicken Burrito? Filled with sweet, tangy barbeque-flavored chicken in a traditional tex-mex style burrito. It’s loaded with black beans, brown rice, and mozzarella. I’m completely sold and ready for lunchtime. Whether I’m in the kitchen or at work, it’s my new favorite meal for lunch.

Precise portions mean I never waste time or effort planning and prepping my meals. Nutrisystem® does all the heavy lifting for me. All I have to do is enjoy the pre-portioned, ready-to-eat meals they deliver to my door. The food is actually tasty and satisfying, unlike the other diets I’d tried.

Dinner - Grain-Crushed Pollock With Vegetables

Once again, I was in the mood for seafood—nothing new there! Last night I had some seafood pasta which was amazing, but tonight I opted for the healthier Grain-Crushed Pollock with Vegetables. It was protein-packed (22g of protein!) with a crispy crust made out of 10 different grains -- even the vegetables were delicious! How great to come home to a delicious dinner that I can heat and eat. Gone are the days of starving and counting calories. Now, thanks to Nutrisystem®, I feel like I’ve accomplished what I set out to do at the end of my very long day. They even have new Premium meals that are 50% bigger and have up to 30g protein to keep you feeling full and satisfied.

Dessert - Vanilla Ice Cream Sandwich

NSD (never skip dessert) is my motto and thankfully, with Nutrisystem®, I don’t have to. On previous diets, dessert was a no-no, so I never got to enjoy a tasty treat in the evening. These Vanilla Ice Cream Sandwiches are my new favorite dessert. They’re so creamy and the vanilla flavor is just right. Plus, the chocolatey sandwich tastes awesome. This dessert has it all!

In addition to the easy, convenient, and delicious meals and snacks from Nutrisystem®, I also get to add in some of my favorite healthy grocery additions. Non-starchy veggies are unlimited and I can also enjoy high-protein and fiber-rich add-ins like fresh fruit, nuts, and yogurt. Talk about simple and satisfying! Their new Premium meals are a major bonus too, as they’re 50% bigger, packed with protein and something new for me to enjoy!

Although I’ve been on Nutrisystem® for a month, I’m still surprised by the quality, variety, and amazing taste of everything on their menu. I never would have imagined that a weight loss plan that actually works for me would allow me to eat my favorite foods six times a day!
