Let's Talk Weight Loss Snacks - Part 3


I hope that these posts have helped you along your weight-loss journey. Unfortunately, so many people are so desperate to lose weight quickly that they buy into the easy fixes that the weight-loss industry pushes. The downside to this is that, yes clients might be losing weight, but they are also experiencing other health issues because of either the ingredients in the weight-loss foods or because they are not properly adjusting their diets/lifestyle for the long-term results they want.

Losing weight is more than eating right. It is about eating healthy, organic foods that are high in natural vitamins, antioxidants, protein, and fiber, exercising the right way to increase endurance, strength, metabolism, and circulation, and avoiding high amounts of stress. When you embark on a weight-loss program, patience is the number one thing you need to remember. It will take time, there is no easy fix-all for your health.

If you are finding that you are not losing weight even though you are following a great program, you may have some other issues that need to be dealt with such as stress, vitamin and mineral deficiencies (hair analysis can determine this), imbalanced hormones, etc. Check with your doctor or health specialist to see what you can do to remove these road blocks.


With that out of the way, let's get into the post!

Today I wanted to focus on Nutrisystem because it is very popular. Although their foods aren't as bad as SlimFast, they still have issues and I intend on making them clear.

The goals of Nutrisystem are to portion control, fuel the body with necessary nutrients, and to eat frequent meals. This is all good, however, you need to eat the right foods. I love that they encourage the client to avoid counting calories and just eat. Overall, I think they are on the right track. Let's dig a little deeper into the ingredients, shall we?
