I Was Stuck In A Diet Rut So I Tried Nutrisytem, Here's My Verdict!

I don't know about you guys but over the last few months, my eating habits have gotten so bad. Between trying to stay home and avoiding the grocery store as much as possible, I've ended up eating a lot of frozen meals, pizza and takeout. Plus, I've been snacking way more.

I go through this phase every winter, too. The holiday season is on the way again and I can't afford to make my eating habits any worse. Sure, the holidays will probably look a little different this year than in the past. However, one thing is for sure: they'll be just as indulgent. My sister always makes the best pumpkin pie and I can never have just one piece!

I decided it was time to get ahead and improve my eating habits before the indulgence starts. Then once the holidays do come around, I can afford to treat myself without feeling guilty.

I wanted to lose weight but I didn't want to go on an intense diet. I'm terrible at meal prepping. Plus, any time I've tried to eat healthier in the past, I've failed miserably. I decided to get advice from some of my friends and one of them recommended that I try Nutrisystem. I instantly told her I didn't want to diet, but she reassured me that with Nutrisystem, you can still eat your favorite kinds of foods. It's all about portion control.

I checked out Nutrisystem that night and she wasn't lying. The menu looked delicious. It includes shakes, burgers, pizza and chocolate muffins! But how could these foods help me better my eating habits? Because the Nutrisystem program teaches you about the principles of portion control.

With Nutrisystem, you eat six times a day so you never feel hungry or deprived. However, you can still lose some pounds, improve your health and have more energy. It sounded great, but as I said, I'm terrible at meal prepping. That's when I read that Nutrisystem meals barely need any prep. They come ready to eat or just need to be heated up. The best part about it? Everything gets delivered right to my doorstep!

When I saw this, I decided to take the plunge and sign up for the Nutrisystem program. My meals arrived and I was excited to get started. The first week was simple to follow. All you have to do is eat Nutrisystem meals, snacks, shakes and veggies. For my first meal, I had the Turkey Sausage & Egg Muffin for breakfast. It was so tasty.

As the week went on, I was surprised at how easy I was finding it. You eat perfect portions every two to three hours, which helps to prevent hunger as you lose weight. The meals are always delicious and satisfying. Plus, they're free of artificial flavors and sweeteners. This explained why I felt so great! The Pepperoni Pizza Melt was the highlight of the week.

From the second week onwards, I could start adding my favorite grocery additions and Flex meals. I decided to download the free NuMi weight loss app to keep track of my food, water, activity and progress. It even provides helpful tips and healthy recipes! I also added some exercise to my schedule—a 30-minute walk each day.

A month later and I can't believe how well Nutrisystem worked for me. I've lost my quarantine weight*, plus my eating habits are so much better. I've learned what the right portions sizes are and I'm back in a healthy routine again.

Nutrisystem ticked every box for me: I can eat my favorite foods, avoid the grocery store, skip meal prep and still lose weight. If you'd like to improve your eating habits, lose some weight and get into a healthy routine, I'd highly recommend Nutrisystem. It's super convenient and makes everything foolproof. Now I won't feel so guilty when I eat a little too much stuffing or a small slice of pumpkin pie. I know Nutrisystem will be there to help me get my eating habits back in check!
