You've all seen the ads, "Just Eat the Food and Loose the Weight." It was time. We have each put on at least 5 pounds since we arrived in Arizona in September and even more over the years since our last serious diet. So we decided to give Nutrisystem a try. The food was delivered in November--when we decided on this path we didn't want to change our minds so we ordered food for a month.
Most of the food came in boxes that can be stored about anywhere. We kept those in the covered bed of our truck while Eric and his family were here. Then we moved back into our house and put the food in the trailer. Some of the food is frozen. That picture is further below.
We are in the first week of the diet. This is one day's food for one person. Breakfast, morning turbo shake snack, lunch, afternoon Nutricrush snack, and dinner. We add at least 4 servings of vegetables to round out lunch and dinner. Our daily allotment of food will increase for the next 3 weeks.
Here is John's scrumptious lunch for today. Actually it is pretty tasty. Many items are flavored with chocolate which makes us feel we aren't being deprived. Do you know how long it takes to chew 2 celery sticks?
Here are most of the dinners for the next 3 weeks.
We don't know why, but John's food includes frozen items--dinners
We are hoping for good results by the end of our first month. During "boot camp" we have each lost almost 5 pounds. Hope to keep it up, though at a slower pace.
