As some of you may know by now, I’ll be starting with Nutrisystem on January 11th. I am now a part of the Nutrisystem Nation bloggers program. I’m very excited to get started. I’m personally not looking to lose weight, but I joined so that I could help maintain my weight and eat healthier. I’m ready to learn about portion size and what’s right for me to eat. I know with Nutrisystem I’ll be able to know what I can eat that is actually healthy, and how much of that I can eat. I’ve already learned a lot from them and I haven’t even started trying anything yet!
I was sent a lot food to start off right. The Turbo 10 is a kit that you start out with for the first week and it contains a one-week jumpstart titled the Turbo Takeoff. The Turbo Takeoff includes seven days of breakfasts, lunches, and dinners, plus two healthy shakes. Turboshakes, all-new and packed with protein plus probiotics, help support digestive health and bust belly bloat, and NutriCrush shakes help crush hunger.
I have already learned that you want to eat 4 non-starchy vegetable servings a day. All of these servings are 1/2 cup cooked or 1 cup raw unless it’s otherwise indicated. Some of these vegetables that are great to eat that I enjoy are: bell peppers, red or green, broccoli, carrots, cauliflower, cucumbers, green beans, kale, lettuce, green or red leaf, lettuce, iceberg, romaine, mixed greens, mixed vegetables (without corn, peas, pasta), snap peas, sugar or yellow, cabbage, onions and spinach. There are many other great vegetables you can eat as well. Those are just some of the ones I enjoy.
They also have some “unlimited extras” which are a great way to spice up your vegetables or add some zest to them. These include: garlic, herbs and spices, lemon or lime juice, maple syrup (sugar-free), mustard, peppers (hot), salsa, salad dressing (calorie-free), sweeteners (calorie-free) and vegetable broth (low-sodium).
Since I already drink water, this shouldn’t be a problem for me. They would like you to drink at least 64 oz of water a day. Water is about the only thing I’ll drink, and I’m glad because of how healthy it is for you.
My package also came with some daily trackers so it’s easier for me to track everything. I’m very glad it came with this so that I can easily track what I’m doing. This makes things a lot more simple.
I can’t wait to get started with my journey with Nutrisystem. I hope that you will follow along and come back to check out my weekly posts. I’m excited to be able to share this with all of my readers. You can subscribe to my blog so that you will get my emails about my journey as well as follow me on my social media. I hope that this will be a great start to a new and healthy me!
