Nutrisystem and the Importance of Water!


Hey Neighbors!

Now that my husband is on Nutrisystem with me, we have had some very interesting experiences.  Like, I don't go grocery shopping with him when he hasn't eaten recently.  He is so funny!  He walks through the store saying things like, "Isn't pizza a power fuel?", "Are you sure hot dogs aren't included?".  The children went to Sonic the other day with him, it was half price and they wanted a flavored soda, and he joked and asked them to order him a burger or two along with a hot dog with everything!  Really he is doing great!  It did take a little adjustment to the system, but overall he has seen the benefit of eating better and eating less. Now, I can't share any weight loss this time because we are on the road again and don't have the scale, so we won't weigh in until Monday, but perhaps I can give a quick update then.



His biggest change has been drinking lots of water.  The first day he did great.  The second day he realized in the late afternoon, that he still had a whole bottle of water to go!  Now, he makes sure he is done with his first bottle of water by lunch.  Nutrisystem sends you a 32 oz. water bottle so you can track your intake.  Each evening we can fill our water bottles and place them in the refrigerator and they are nice and cold and ready to go in the morning.  I don't have a hard time with the water, but that is because I keep a water beside me all day.  Water is so important to your body whether you are dieting or not.  I find by drinking plenty of water, I do not get as hungry.


He also likes the Protein Shakes you can have for breakfast.  They come in Chocolate, Vanilla, Strawberry, and Coffee flavor.  you mix them up in your Nutrisystem shaker with water and ice and you have a foaming cold shake.  I think the chocolate is his favorite, but he said the coffee tastes like iced coffees he has had before.

A quick note on my Nutrisystem D journey!  I am finding myself full quite a bit faster.  I feel better, and have been able to do longer and faster times on the treadmill.  I still have to be careful because of the previous back injury, but I am definitely seeing improvement.

That's all for now!  I'll give another update later!  If you are interested in Nutrisystem check out the information below.
