I had mentioned previously that I was trying to lose some weight by working with Nutrisystem Nation Blogger. I started off with the Nutrisystem Fast 5 starting on January 13th and have made some progress so far.
The Nutrisystem Fast 5 is a one week jump-start kit that gets you started to quickly lose weight. I don’t know about other people, but my biggest problem with any diet regimen is the lack of motivation. Any jump start helps keep me motivated. The Fast 5 kit is supposed to help me lose 5 pounds within my first week!
Included is a one-week meal plan that features 7 breakfasts, lunches and dinners that were specially selected to help the weight loss jump-start. Included is also new shakes that were specially formulated to fight off hunger and boost metabolism. After the Fast 5 week, I transition into the regular monthly program.
And how has this worked out for me so far? I unfortunately cheated and had a few too many drinks once or twice, but I have followed the guidelines for the most part and eaten a lot cleaner. I didn’t lose 5 pounds within my first week, but I loss a total of 3! For all the good meals and some inappropriate cheats along the way, I am absolutely thrilled with the results. It is definitely a great motivation for me. I anticipate easily losing another 10 pounds within the next two months as long as I stick with Nutrisystem.
Expect some before after pictures sometime in the future!
Some tricks my Nutrisystem counselor taught me to help get through the first week:
- Drinking non-calorie beverages around like diet soda, crystal light and water to stay hydrated and feel full.
- Eating plenty of veggies prepared and cut up and then some cooked and ready to reheat.
