Nutrisystems Meals Comparison
A Nutrisystems meals comparison will look at one day of meals and
compare them to low glycemic meals that are similar. As stated
on other pages here, I believe in each person being empowered to live
at his or her goal weight by learning how to shop, cook and prepare fresh,
low glycemic foods!
When you buy prepackaged meals what you are
getting is the correct serving size. There is a low glycemic,
nutritious, cheaper alternative.
Rather than buying expensive prepackaged foods you can make
meals that taste great, are nutritious and low glycemic which
is essential for long term weight management. This means they do not
raise your blood sugar and the nutrients support a healthy metabolism.
Please see the glycemic index for understanding how this impacts not only your health but the possibilities of losing fat effectively and permanently.
- Nutrisystems meals - Egg Frittata, 1 oz Canadian bacon, 1 cup of raspberries.
Fat Loss comments: Eggs are good when fresh. According to Consumer
Reports these taste like “dehydrated soup mix.” You need to read the
ingredients label to know where that taste is coming from. Will the ingredients spike your blood sugar?
- Lifetime Fat Loss recommends: Breakfast Burrito,
1 orange in quarters. The taste comparison will be extreme in favor of
the breakfast burrito which also packs in a lot of good nutrition with a
fresh egg, sprouted grain tortilla and green onions. The breakfast
burrito is easy and fast to make.
Nutrisystems meals - Cheesy Homestyle Potatoes, 1 oz. lean beef
sirloin, ½ cup snap peas, ½ cup yellow and green zucchini, 2 teaspoons
- Lifetime comments: Potatoes are high
glycemic. Consumer Reports calls them an “instant mashed potato
impression, with chewy bits of dehydrated onion.” Also what is in that
trans-fat-free spread? Read your ingredient labels! Is it food?
- Lifetime Fat Loss recommends: steak spinach salad ,
2 low glycemic crackers, 1 apple or other low glycemic fruit in season.
When you buy prewashed, organic spinach and use left over steak, this
is put together in a flash and so yummy!
Nutrisystems snack: 1 oz. swiss cheese, 1 pear. Lifetime Fat Loss comments: This is a good low glycemic snack.
- Nutrisystems meals: Meatloaf and Tomato Sauce with Mashed Potatoes, ½
cup green beans, 1 cup raw carrots, 6 unsalted, dry roasted almonds, 1
teaspoon trans-fat-free spread, 1 medium orange.
- Lifetime Fat
Loss comments: More veggies and fruit are good and unsalted nuts too
although they are cheaper and better for you when they are raw.
Again, you have to read the ingredients label for the spread and
potatoes are high glycemic. Consumer Reports calls the meatloaf “…an
old flavor, low flavored and instant style.”
Lifetime Fat Loss recommends: Roasted vegetables with feta cheese, mixed green salad with walnuts and dried cranberries and low calorie salad dressing.
1 glass 8oz of unsweetened chocolate almond milk. This is another tasty meal and pretty quickly put together. When you're too tired to cook, put a garnet yam in the oven at 375 degrees for 40 minutes. It doesn't even need butter.
It is so worth the effort when it comes out of the oven steamy hot and oozing
with yummy flavor!
Nutrisystems meals compare a little better in the nutrition
department than Jenny Craig. That’s not saying a whole lot because it
is still prepackaged food, hard to digest and flavor challenged.
Eating is one of the pleasures of life and it's essential, especially when you're changing your food habits, that your food taste fantastic. When you make it yourself you know what you're getting.
Super taste and super nutrition are key factors in whether you succeed in changing your eating habits and changing your life!
