And to those of you who say "No i'm not expecting gourmet, but I wouldn't even feed this to my dog" Finally I would have my dinner with some more veggies and a dessert right before bed. Just listen to how they talk. Admittedly, I am not a great cook, so most of the meals I make are pretty simple and not perfectly cooked or flavored. Nutrisystem offers a wide variety of meals choices and snack options to choose from. I'd appreciate any advice.
What is Nutrisystem?
Rather than driving to weight-loss centers in strip malls for face-to-face advice, dieters chat with counselors and order foods online. The same program is also outlined in the book NutriSystem Nourish: Variations are available for women, men, vegetarians, and people with type 2 diabetes. There's a single-serve sloppy joe mix that you reconstitute with water and heat. Spaghetti with sauce pours out of a nonrefrigerated foil pouch.
Asian noodles come in a cardboard soup bowl; just add boiling water. If it sounds a little like military rations, that's pretty close to the mark.
And chances are many dieters will be bored with eating the same not-so-great-tasting foods meal after meal. Yet for other folks, the convenience might outweigh the blandness, and the low-calorie program does help peel off pounds. The big concern among health professionals: Once you're no longer relying on prepackaged foods to count calories and measure portions for you, can you maintain your weight in the real world?
Dieters learn to make weight loss their number-one priority. That's because they maintain normal blood sugar and insulin levels, resulting in less hunger and fat storage.
Low-fat proteins such as lean meats, fish, and calcium-rich dairy products are also OK. Bad carbs-such as those found in sodas and processed white bread-send blood sugar levels into the stratosphere and are strictly taboo.
The program includes advice about keeping active, reducing stress, and mentally visualizing success. Forget counting calories, or even worrying about the glycemic index. Dieters who buy the company's prepared foods automatically receive correct portions in the form of low-G. The plan adds up to one low-fat protein at each meal, three daily servings of vegetables, two to three fruits, two to three dairy products, two to four whole grains, and one to two servings of heart-healthy fats.
I have a girlfriend who just lost 80 pounds over the last nine months using Arbonne 30 days to fit plan which she did 9 consecutive times. I do think that when dealing with cancer it is more important to assure good, clean nutrition from unprocessed sources than it is to lose weight quickly.
Good luck on your health journey! Having always had to struggle with weight, before breast cancer I was always using a system to lose and keep weight off. I did both Nutrisystem and Jenny Craig. My concern about using this product is that the food is very processed and not very healthy nutritionally.

But, what has worked is eating all whole foods Make sure you have more protein and fresh veggies than carbs. Then find a cardio exercise that you like.
I find doing Zumba at least 3x a week sometimes more has done wonders for me. It's fun, you can modify to your fitness level and you sweat. If you wear a Fitbit you will see it easily get to , steps in just one class! Then just add a light weight bearing workout for toning arms Has really helped me lose what I'd gained and keep it off with ease. Now if you feel you have to rely on a program, my oncologist has reviewed the nutrition in Isogenics and that is fine.
But, I'd only do shakes in am and lunch, then eat a well balanced dinner. NO fast food ever by the way I would absolutely not pursue NutriSystem The point debco made about the soy content is also germane.
What I would recommend is that you make an appointment with a licensed nutritionist or dietitian who has specific experience in working with cancer patients to help you work out a safe, sane nutritional and exercise plan that will get you the results you want without spending unnecessary funds or eating foods that are not appropriate for your situation.
Your hospital or treatment center can help you make that connection, or you might want to ask your oncologist.
