i just gotmy box of food for the month, 1st time with NutriSystem. i will be sending it all back and have to do my own thing. BUMMER!
i wanted to use their program cuz i needed help with portion sizes but mostly because i don't cook or pre-plan or grocery shop well at all. their food was supposed to be easy to prep and brainless.
BUT NOOOOO.... i still need to add salads, protein, yogurt, cheese, fruits- and all specific sizes and portions- so the no-brainer kick i needed isn't what it was cracked up to be. if i have to do all that, i may as well make my own portions and eat food that tastes good since i have to do so much work anyway.
I FINALLY DECIDED TO GET HELP, COMMITTED TO A PRETTY PRICEY PLAN (big deal for me) AND IT BIT ME IN THE A$$. NOW I HAVE TO PAY TO SHIP IT ALL BACK. silver lining: i don't still pay the food costs of $300+ / month x 2 months minimum.
TOMORROW: week's food sked, grocery shop, organize.
