Nutrisystem Review – Day Three

Sharing is caring!

Nutrisystem Diet Review - Day ThreeDay Three’s Food from Nutrisystem – Doesn’t look like much, does it?

Only two days on the diet and I am down a total of 3.5 pounds.  I have been hungry and cranky (sorry, honey).  Is it worth it?  Well, so far I am feeling a bit smaller, I don’t feel bloated, and I am about half way through.  I really hope to make it through all of the way.  I needed a catalyst to help me get back to a healthier weight.

I am owning up to the fact that it is my fault for being in the position that I am in.  Nobody has forced me to over-eat.  Sure, I may blog about food, but that is not a reason to overdo it.

The Nutrisystem box has the line “Jumpstart Your Weight Loss.”  That is my hope for this little experiment.

Breakfast
Nutrisystem Chewy Chocolate Chip Granola Bar
1 cup low-fat yogurt

Morning Snack
1 oz. low-fat string cheese

Lunch
Nutrisystem Chicken Noodle Soup
1/4 cup low-fat parmesan cheese
2 cups side salad

Nutrisystem Review - Day Three

I didn’t have low-fat parmesan cheese, so I added 1/4 cup Italian blend (not pictured).

Afternoon Snack
2-5 whole-grain crackers
1/2 cup 100% vegetable juice

Nutrisystem Review - Day Three

The can of V-8 is 5.5 ounces which makes it 1.5 ounces over 1/2 a cup.  Being that the whole container was only 30 calories, I went ahead and drank it all.

Dinner
Nutrisystem Homestyle Beef & Mashed Potatoes
1/2 cup cooked corn
1/2 cup grilled asparagus
1/2 cup grilled pepper strips

Nutrisystem Review - Day Three

Two words came to mind when I was eating the Beef & Mashed Potatoes – DOG FOOD.  Not that I have eaten dog food, but the beef seemed to be poor quality and really did smell like something that I would feed my dogs.

My family ate hot dogs.  I *gasp* used my hands when I prepared my son’s hot dog.  Then I licked my fingers.  Yes, I admit it – I licked them.  I was HUNGRY.

Dessert
Nutrisystem Coconut Almond Bar

Nutrisystem Review - Day Three

The coconut bar was okay.  It looks like it had melted or something.  I ate it anyway.  I was HUNGRY.

For the record, I cheated a little on dinner, too.  I bought a small can of asparagus tips that was the equivalent of one cup.  I ate the whole thing.  I think it was an extra 20 calories.  Maybe it helps that I didn’t eat the grilled pepper strips since I did not have any.

What are your biggest weight loss hurdles?

Good luck! Seems like a little amount of food but I would think your stomach will shrink a little bit after awhile and you won't feel that hungry all the time.

Well, for anyone who has ever opened a can of dog food I think they can relate. Sorry you are having a hard time. That melted bar looked unappetizing also.

It really is plenty when you add in all those great salads and veggies.

You are doing great and if all you did was add some asparagus to help with that dinner then you really deserve a gold star today.
