When people write to me asking for information about the “Nutrisystem products,” few seem to realize that there are so many choices available. There are several options for both men and women. And there are several specialty or deluxe options too. I will discuss the many choices that you have on this diet in the following article.
Nutrisystem Products For Women: With in the women’s category, you can chose from several packages. There is the basic women’s (which I believe is the most popular.) This diet runs around $ 299 per month (but there are always coupons) and has you eating five times per day. You will eat three meals and a snack plus a dessert. You are eating the food that the company provides, although you are asked to add in healthful, fresh sides.
There is also a vegetarian option (it’s the same idea as the basic plan but the foods are only made up of meatless options like veggie lasagna, veggie fajitas, etc.) Additionally, there is what is called “silver” for women over sixty. Finally there is a diabetic plan which provides a package which is “glycemic friendly” and meant for folks with type two diabetic (it’s called the “D” program.)
Nutrisystem Products For Men: I’m not sure why, but the men’s programs don’t seem to enjoy as much advertising as the women’s. We all know that Jillian Barberie is the women’s spokesperson, but the guy celebrities like Dan Marino, Don Shula, and Chris Berman just don’t get as much attention.
However, there is a men’s line. And it basically runs a lot like the women’s but the packages provide a touch more calories and protein. As with the women’s, under the men’s umbrella we have the basic, vegetarian, silver, and diabetic. (Note: You can chose your own foods within any of these programs by placing a custom order. This doesn’t cost extra and this is also true of all the women’s programs too.)
Nutrisystem Flex: This is really a new line and it’s been very well received. The flex plan is the lowest priced plan at just over $ 200, but the reason for this is that it’s sort of a part time plan. You take two days every week off. The foods are basically the same, but you don’t need as many of them. You can take any two days off, although most people will take advantage of this on the weekend.
The Select Plan: There’s another plan that works for both men and women and it’s called “the select” plan because the foods are frozen and are touted as being restaurant quality. This package is a bit more expensive, but some of the foods are exceptionally good. Some people think it’s worth it to pay the extra for this and some will just order some of their favorite select foods individually with their regular order.
Other Nutrisystem Products: Vitamins, Exercise Equipment, Mind Set Makeover, Etc.: The company doesn’t limit itself to just food. If you go to the a la carte section of the site, you’ll see that they also sell vitamins, work out videos, recipe books, excise bands and equipment.
One product that I can really recommend is the “mindset guide.” This is sort of a behavioral / psychological guide that takes you week by week and offers support and questions to help you determine (and then change) your sabotaging behaviors and beliefs. Weight loss is not all about calories. It’s psychological tool and I found this resource to be very helpful. The company does offer free counseling, but the mind set book is a good resource to use in addition to this because you can pick it up and come back to it when you need to. I’ve also seen it offered for free sometimes.
