From NS to Medifast
So last fall I went on nutrisystem and it was a really good plan that I got my kick start off to weight loss. However, I got sick of the food really fast - specifically the lunches. The other meals were fine, but the lunches disgusted me. I physically would gag as I ate them. I'm thankful that nutrisystem showed me I CAN lose weight, but, it was just too expensive and not too palatable for me at the time. Buying all the NS food plus the add-ins really cost a lot too. I ended up selling months of food I recently collected on craigslist (after my first few weeks of success I went gaga for the stuff) back on craigslist because I just couldn't stomach a lot of the entrees anymore.
My weight loss has definitely slowed since I went back to doing it on my own buying NS comparable and the like, so I ordered 2 weeks of medifast. It seems like food I will tire of less easily - close favorites of bars, shakes, etc. Plus I eat fish and salad for dinner almost every night, sounds great. I learned from the mistakes of NS and only ordered those 2 weeks so I didn't get stuck with boxes of food I hated. Considering it's what, 800-1000 cal/day, I'm definitely thinking this is going to be temporary!
There was a brief transition into a low carb Atkins lifestyle but I don't really like to eat a lot of meat except sea food so it was difficult to maintain without getting bored. Guess I just didn't get "good" at it. SO the medifast approach to a lower carb life style intrigues me.
