Re: Losing Weight...
I just finished my first month (28 days) on Nutrisystem. I lost 10 pounds.
I'm continuing for another month.
Overall, I'm satisfied. Sure, the food is not great, but there's not a lot to expect from ready to go and frozen meals. I took their standard package for the first month, but now I've eliminated the stuff I didn't like and included more of my favorites for the second month (you can customize). And I didn't get overweight by eating gourmet food (well, some). I've eaten my share of junk over the years.
The best thing is it's structured. You know what you are going to eat and the routine takes care of itself. Sometimes you do get hungry, but no real suffering. It helps if you bunch your meals closer (later breakfast, earlier dinner). You get snacks at mid-morning and mid-afternoon and an after-dinner dessert. It's all about portion control and keeping you under about 1500 cal/day.
During the month, I passed a kidney stone. I'm pretty sure it was because of the change in diet and all the water I drank (the passingm that is not the stone formation; the stone has been there for a while). Very painful.
