Nutrisystem week 1 review

Hey guys, it's been a while since I've been on here. I thought it would be a great time to talk about my journey on Nutrisystem.Before I get started I would just like to say, I am not being sponsored for my review. I had purchased this program on my own.

Almost everyone puts on love chub. However in 2.5 years after meeting my fiancé, I had put on 40 pounds. I was starting my nutrisystem journey at 169.4 pounds. My chest was 41 inches. My waist was 31 inches. My hips were 46 inches. And one of my thighs was 27 inches. My goal weight would be 150. Not my previous weight, however I want to be able to keep the weight off.

My first week of nutrisystem went very well. If you are someone who is an emotional eater, then you are someone like me. I would be good all day and binge out at night. This program is helping me realize what a portion size should look like. As well as tracking the calories on everything. I have downloaded the numi app, but if you don't have that option there is a booklet included with each order so that you can track all your meals, exercise, water, and vegetable intake. Now I did feel hungry for the first 4 days. It took a few days for me to adjust to nutrisystems portions. When I felt hungry  I would eat more vegetables or drink more water. As far as how good the food tastes, I personally love the breakfasts and desserts. The only dessert that I didn't like we're the cheese puffs. The lunches are overall good. I love the lunch bars, as well as the mac and cheese. As far as dinners go I am a little more picky. I love the thick crust pizza as well as the Italian herb flatbread. Nutrisystem does offer frozen foods, however I did not choose that plan. I decided on the core package, where I could choose the shelf stable foods.

With the nutrisystem program, it's recommended to do at least 30 minutes of exercise. I personally know that if I was to go to the gym everyday for the first week, I would not keep up with it and eventually quit exercising altogether. Instead of going to the gym, I use the Leslie sanstone at home walking DVDs. There are multiple different ones, and I will alternate working out for 20-45 minutes each day. I have also been doing Pilates DVDs on the days that I do a shorter walk. The Leslie sansone workouts are great for people who are not currently in a workout regimen, people who have excess weight that hinders their workout performance, as well as people with bad joints.

So my progress on nutrisystem for one week was 3.4 pounds lost. I was very excited and relieved that I had lost that much weight. This program really does work as long as you stick to all of the guidelines. Overall I have to say I am impressed and excited to see how far I can go with this program. Stay tuned for week 2's progress.

Sheamoisture raw Shea butter deep treatment masque

I had recently changed my hair care routine about a month or so ago. I had purchased a new conditioner, new styling products and a new treatment mask. This was the mask that I decided to purchase. I wanted a product that didn't have an assortment of ingredients. Ingredients like: fragrance,
Propylene glycol, any kind of chlorides, etc. I have read that these have damaging effects on the hairs structure. This is the product that I had found that doesn't contain any of these ingredients.

This hair mask is one of the best I have tried. All other masks make my hair feel great the first day but left it dry the next day. This mask put moisture in my hair and left it in there. This is used once to twice a week depending on your hair. I find that it works best on wet hair. I take a shower and wash my hair. After I shampoo I step out of the shower and towel dry my hair. I put in a generous amount of this product to the ends of my hair and I put on a shower cap. I usually put on a face mask while it sits. I leave my mask on for around an hour. After the hour I take off the shower cap and rinse my hair. I apply my conditioner after I rinse off my mask. I have noticed a difference in my frizziness, the dry ends, and the tangling. I do believe it is because of this product.

Overall this product is my absolute favorite. This makes my hair so much more manageable, more soft, it improves the look of my hair. This product is the reason why my hair looks smooth. This has been a huge change in my haircare routine and I have nothing but good things to say about it. This product is $11 and you can purchase it at ulta, target", and online.


Nutrisystem 5 day program review

This was a great program. This was the most easiest weight loss program that I have ever tried. This has a lot of really good food. Although the portions are small you can supplement them with vegetables. You get smart carbs and powerfuels throughout the day. I would highly recommend this program for people with a busy life. And people that find it difficult to stay on diets. I found this one of the most effective diet plans out there. I would love to buy a months plan and show you guys what's in the 28 day meal plan. But if you want to do a test drive before you spend the money. Definitely try this, you won't be sorry.

On this I had lost 3 pounds. I have about 15-20 pounds to lose I wanted to try this out and see if it worked. This will definitely help people with portion control issues and for people who have a quick and busy lifestyle.

Nutrisystem day 5/5

Today is he last day on the 5 day nutrisystem program. I really enjoyed it. So my last days meals were.

For breakfast I had the peanut butter bar. It tasted good. It wasn't very filling. It tasted like peanut butter. I would give this a 7.

For lunch I had the red beans and rice. This was very delicious. It was so filling and it tasted amazing.   It had some sausage in it to which was a surprising kick. I would give this a 9.



For dinner I had the Italian herb flatbread pizza. This was very delicious. I personally didn't care for the sauce but everything together tasted good. This was about the size of a slice of pizza. I would give this an 8.

For dessert I had the peppermint patty. This didn't taste like the candy you get at the store. This is very chewy. It had some crunchy chocolate pieces in it. I did like this but it was small and it was very chewy I would give this a 6.

Nutrisystem day 4/5

For breakfast I had the granola cereal. It tasted good but it was very small. And not filling at all. I would give this a 7 just because of the amount you get. I think you get more with a serving of Cheerios then this.

For lunch I had the chicken noodle soup. This was very good. If you are going to be on this plan you do need to eat a lot of vegetables just so you won't be hungry. I didn't eat any with this and I was so hungry shortly after. I would give this a 7 just because it's not too filling. But it did taste really good.


For dinner I had the meat lasagna. This was delicious. It had a great flavor. And it was filling. I would give this an 8.


For dessert I had the chocolate covered pretzels. These were delicious. They tasted like normal chocolate covered pretzels. You don't get a lot but it was really good. I would give this a 9.

Nutrisystem 3/5

For breakfast: I had the honey wheat bagel with a tbs. of peanut butter. This breakfast is filling and tastes good. I would love to have it more often it was the perfect size. I had felt hungry at 11 and then ate my lunch at 12:33. I would give this a 9, it was very good.


For lunch I had the fudge graham bar. This is so good. It's sweet and tastes like a chocolatey graham cracker. I would give this an 8 just because it wasn't very filling.


For dinner I had the chicken pot pie. This was good. I loved the crust. I didn't love the filling but it didn't taste bad. The crust was flaky and really good. I would give this a 7. I didn't care for the filling that much.



For dessert I had the cheesecake bar. This was alright. It doesn't really taste like cheesecake and it's really small. I would give this a 6 just because i didn't care much for it.

Nutrisystem day 2/5

Hello everyone, to day is the 2nd day on this program. Yesterday I was very hungry after my snack, I didn't eat anything else though. Hopefully today will be a better less hungry day.

For breakfast I had the double chocolate muffin. This tasted good. It wasn't your typical chocolatey taste. It was good though. I had that with string cheese. I ate that around 9 I did feel hungry at 11:30.  I would give this an 8 it tastes good.



For lunch: I had the loaded baked potato. This was not that great. It had a different texture than regular instant mashed potatoes. I had a yogurt with it and I wasn't hungry later on. There was a decent amount of the instant mashed potatoes. But it tasted bad. I would give it a 3.



For dinner I had rotini and meatballs. This wasn't bad I'm not a fan of the meatballs but the pasta was good. There is a lot of sauce. I would give this a 7



For dessert I had the chocolate chip cookies. These were delicious. These taste better in my opinion than chips ahoy cookies. I would give this food a 10.
