Thanks Harland, appreciate you spreading the word and glad you found the information useful. I found this article to be very interesting as I have recently been researching reverse dieting. Eat cereal for breakfast five days a week. Could you take a walk? What in the world am i doing wrong….. I am now trying a 4th way of changing my eating to lose weight. I read online that you can loose up to pounds in 5 days by drinking like a gallon or 2 gallons of water a day, no salt, sugar or starches and to use the sauna.

After that you can go in calorie jumps to give your metabolism a chance to adapt. Do you recommend adding the to total of or adding it to the making it ? Should I listen to hunger signals? It just represents a certain amount of food to increase by, on average.
Just consciously a little more. During reverse dieting it can be useful to break out the scale and calorie counting tools. But tape measurements, progress pics, and paying attention to how your clothes are fitting are also ways to monitor external changes. All this information is great. But I am still a little confused. I have been on Nutrisystem and am currently on Jenny. Both seem to work the same way. I am about lb and looking to get to or They both put me on a calorie day with food.
But where I get lost is the amount of exercise I need to do per week with this intake. I was told that I need to do enough exercise to burn the I eat plus more calories to loose weight. I have been doing 1 hour of a treadmill 5 days a week. I guess where I am confused is what is the target calorie burn you need based on the calorie intake? Those two programs you mentioned are notorious for their calorie diets. In my opinion they cause more harm than good, although some lives have definitely been changed from them.
Exercise is one very small part of your energy expenditure. The goal is to get in a modest energy deficit. You take that feedback and adjust your energy balance. Hi Gina, I would just continue doing the things that helped you lose 9lbs. The weight gain when you started exercising is very common and is simply energy stores within the muscle increasing muscle glycogen. This is very discouraging. Hard to say, Lisa. Double check your calorie tracking. That has a different set of circumstances to it.
I could really use your input! I had a son in January. For 5 months now o have not lost a single lb. I have a wedding in November and a dress fitting in July. She has info pertaining specifically to your situation, in addition to a calorie calculator you can use.
Hi Tony, I am cm tall female, I weigh 48Kg, I have recently been diagnosed with hypothyroidism and take 25mg. I did not have hypothyroidism last year, its come about recently. I have suffered from Bulimia in the past more than 3 years ago. Today I am fit and pretty strong i have been lifting weights for 3 years, I workout using heavy weights x4 weekly and I also do some cardio in my rest days. I can deadlift 80kg for a few reps. I track my macro-nutrients diligently, I eat daily g Protein, g carbs and 30g Fat calories.
My diet includes lots of water, veg and fruit, along with lean meats. My fats come from healthy sources like avocados, coconut, nuts and seeds. My problem is that I cannot seem to eat more than without gaining fat.
Do you think my hypothyroidism is due to low long periods of low calorie intake? I have also had a couple of missed periods recently. If I select high fibre nutritious food then will leave me reasonably satisfied but there is no margin for even biscuits as a treat. Shall I increase my calories slowly reverse diet and accept extra fat and hopefully muscle? But none of that really matters. At your current stats you are going to be hard pressed to lose any more weight, as your weight is already so low.
What I would advise is to hang out at maintenance calories and push the strength training. Focus less on your weight, regardless of whether it goes up or not, and more on your body composition.
With more food will likely come more weight, but the fat gain should be minimal if any so long as you continue getting stronger and you take the calorie rise slowly. I had knee surgery 4 years ago and was told I could never jog again. I really enjoyed running so I got depressed and gained over 30 pounds, to a whopping lbs! For the past 5 weeks, my total weight loss was 11 pounds. I track my calories. I eat , depending on how much I burn with exercise. I started lifting lb weights with my legs.
Why am I losing so slow? This week, I lost 0. When I was 9 months pregnant, I weighed lbs. How did I get here? Your advice is so helpful. I look forward to your response.
Oops, I forgot to say that I exercise daily, alternating cardio and cardio plus weight lifting every other day. Hi Cynthia, 11lbs in 5 weeks is actually really good. It takes time for the weight to come off. A pound a week for a year is 52lbs. Would you be happy with that? Thank you for responding to my question! I will use this time to work concurrently on my body image, as you suggested.
It is very kind of you to take the time to help those struggling with weight. Hi, I am sitting at lb and 5ft 7. I have just recently started training and counting calories, averaging about a day. I train for 45 mins twice a week, bootcamp stuff, cardio and weights etc.
Any advise would be appreciated. Check out this explanation — https: Should I cut back calories even further? How best to make this last 6 disappear? Not much though — a 50 calorie cut, whether via diet or exercise should get things going. The lowest with hours of killing myself days a week doing cardio and lifting was lbs. I had to stop that as it just became too time consuming and honestly to discouraging.
All that time and not the desired results. This was done for a period of a min 2 years. My calculator indicates I should be eating 1,ish calories a day to lose 2lbs a week. Bowflex Max trainer mins during cal or more min times a week Walking normal hours a week. Mild Lifting nothing extreme. Calories from food range from 1, — ish.
What in the world am i doing wrong….. The inches are not falling off the gut and the scale is not budging. I sometimes really have to fight myself to do a workout which really is not the norm for me.
I usually am super energetic. ANY tips, advice, are more than welcomed as this not fun anymore and getting that much older, having extra weight I also know can start to play a role on overall health. Muscle and fat are 2 different things. Otherwise, you will lose size even if you put on muscle, as muscle is denser than fat on a lb for lb basis. Point being, your goal should be to put on muscle.
Toning is just a matter of reducing body fat. Just worry about getting your weight trending in the right direction eating as many calories as you can. Fuel the fat loss. Check out this article — https: Great article and solid advice!
I have lost 45 pounds over the past 8 months. My weight loss has always been very difficult except when I was doing gymnastics four hours a day. I ate calories a day to drop the weight low carb keto diet. However I plateaued at the beginning of September. I decided to bump my calories up to a day, because I figured my body had adapted to the calories. I have put back on six pounds not water weight — I am still on the keto plan.
How long does it take the body to reset? Thanks for any tips! A calorie bump overnight is a big one and very well could be too many calories for you depending on your stats. Thanks for the article! I am the person who left a question about greek yogurt a week ago. Thanks to your advice, my sleep quality has been perfect! However, now I am in a dilemma.
Just to recap, I am 5ft2in, Ib, and 18 yr old. I do have a history of yo-yo dieting for 3 yrs due to the lack of knowledge on metabolism silly me. Fortunately, my T2D is now reversed!
I do have signs of suppressed metabolism, such as crankier mood, low body temp, significantly lighter period although it still occurs once a month and feeling weaker during strength training, and that really concerns me because my goal is to take care of my health. My weight loss has slowed down a lot since I have started strength training I only lost 1Ib in three weeks , but my major concern is the intense hunger signal and starvation symptoms.
Also, since I had T2D, I am now on a ketogenic diet. It has been working really well for me, and I would like to stick with it even during the reverse diet phase so no carb increase.
Thank you so much for reading this long post! You might need calories. Maybe start with and see if those feelings go away in a few days.
If not you can always increase more. I have to raise myself to , as with my short height and being lb, calculators tell me to go around calories! But the goal of the article is to encourage people to start higher and only get to that number if you have to.
Since August I have been watching what I eat and on a plan with a nutritionist eating roughly calories a day however i would have lots of cheat days and went from to the I just reimplemented physical activity and am doing 5 miles a day at 3.
I have now been stuck at Should I eat a little more or do a little less of physical activity, seeing the number not change and doing the pa is discouraging. Take a look at this article — https: I have been consuming calories per day and I have been gaining. I do workout almost everyday, burning around calories per day.
Overall, I guess that would be calories consumed during the week. But, on the weekends I am not as strict. I figure the additional calories I consume that weekend evens out the week.
Is it that I am eating too much or too little? If I consume mon-fri with calories burned per day so cals consumed , but sat-sun I most likely consume more with exercise of cals burned — is my amount per day still too little or too much?
Is it wrong to make the weekend even out my week? Just to avoid all the carbs… Did you or anyone else have a issue with how many carbs are in each meal? Is this ok lol… Please someone assure me all the carbs are ok! Thanks for visting, and best of luck with your first month! Thanks for the excellent review and videos. Excited to see what kind of progress I can make.
Hi Krystal — thanks for visiting the site, and taking the time to read my review and watch the videos. Always happy to hear that it helped! Thanks for the great info and for sharing your story! Thanks for the kind words, June! Congrats on taking the first step and best of luck with Nutrisystem — hope it goes well!
I mastered more new things on this fat reduction issue. An enormous reduction in junk food, sugary foods, fried foods, sugary foods, beef, and white flour products may perhaps be necessary. Holding wastes unwanted organisms, and wastes may prevent ambitions for fat-loss. While specific drugs for the short term solve the situation, the unpleasant side effects are certainly not worth it, plus they never present more than a short-term solution. Many thanks sharing your thinking on this weblog.
Thanks for the input Saul. Have you ever considered creating an ebook or guest authoring about Nutrisystem on other sites? I know my readers would appreciate your work. If you are even remotely interested, feel free to send me an email.
Hi Lance — I actually do have an eBook in the works, so stay tuned for that! I just wanted to say that this post is awesome, well written and lots of useful Nutrisystem info. Looking forward to my first shipment. Hi Corburt — Thanks for the kind words, and best of luck with your first month — hope it goes well!
I just wanted to offer you a huge thumbs up for the great information you have right here on this post. I will be returning to your site for more soon! This blog looks exactly like my old one! Great choice of colors! Really inspired by your story — thanks for sharing!
I am planning to start Nutrisystem after the New Year. Hi Erin — Thanks so much for the positive feedback. The first time I ever used Nutrisytem, which was many years ago at this point, I think I was one it for 4 months. I had a lot more weight to lose then; now when I sign up, I usually use it for a month, maybe two at the most.
To lock in the auto delivery deal, you have to commit to two months, so if you hit your weight loss goals after month 1, I recommend switching your order to just the Turbo Shakes — that will ensure you lock in the most savings, and also helps to keep you on track once you start transitioning off the program. As I have said before, you have to be committed to the program to get results, but as long as you follow their plan you will lose weight!
Anyways, best of luck and please let us know how it goes: Thanks for sharing your story. Drinking over ounces and eating tons of leafy greens. I did NS about 4 years ago lost almost This past July was told my chloerstral and blood pressure was too high for 28 year old.
So black Friday I ordered when prices decreased. Hi Amanda — Thanks for visiting and reading my story. Hope it goes as well this time around. Thanks for sharing your superb review. You have a lot of good info here. I am looking for a diet to try just after the new year, and this might be the one. Either way, appreciate all of the details you shared. Thanks, just what I was looking for. I have about 20 pounds to lose — is this doable in a month or two?
Hi Sam — Thanks for the positive feedback. Losing 20 pounds is definitely doable with Nutrisystem, but I would budget at least two months. I signed up for Nutrisystem this week, and I am really hoping that I have the same results. I think my first shipment should arrive just before Christmas, so think I will get started right after the holiday. Thanks so much for the review — definitely gives me hope! Hi Kris — congrats on signing up — while results will vary for everyone, I truly believe that you will lose a lot of weight if you follow the program — so stick with it, and let us know how it goes.
They try to rip you off when quit their auto delivery program. Very very unpleasant people to deal with. They shipped me stuff 3 days after I had already cancelled and had a confirmation number stating I cancelled. They refused to turn the shipment around or to take it back and are trying to create some kind of lie that I created a 2nd account in November and they only cancelled one account.
The only thing I did in November was update my credit card expiration date which I regret. If I guaranteed no more shipments are coming to my name or my address that should be the end of the story, not with them! I am fighting them through my credit card company but please be aware of whatever traps they have in store for any of you. Hi Troy — Sorry to hear that that was your experience.
It was actually a customer service rep who told me I could switch from the meal delivery to just the Turbo Shakes after my first month on the program to lock in the auto-delivery savings without having to commit to another month of food.
In any case, I hope you are able to get things resolved! I started the program today, January 1st. My resolution is to feel better about myself, but do it in a healthy way that had structure. How much and when I should be eating vegetables, and ideas on what to eat if you have to attend a social function or business based meeting that involves food.
Thanks for posting a well written, and information overview of this program. I have three questions and maybe one is a question for a NS counselor… 1. Or can tomatoes, cukes, etc. Also, plain or with some sort of dressing? How many turbo shakes can you have per week… and when can they be consumed? Thanks in advance …. Hi Tami — Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to comment! I always add extra veggies to my greens and have found the only thing you really need to watch out for is the salad dressing.
But for me, cucumbers, tomatoes, etc. I usually have my TurboShake midday — around 2: That said, I would definitely suggest using the Nutrisystem counseling service for full clarification, though — especially for questions 2 and 3.
Best of luck if you decide to try the full program! I wanted to say that this article is nicely written and included almost all the vital info I needed. Thanks for the review. I second your recommendation for Nutrisystem. Their service helped me significantly a few years ago.
Hoping for the same results! Hi Maria — thanks for commenting! Hope it goes well again if you decide to give it another try. Have you found that Nutrisystem is a good way for keeping the weight off over the long term? How long do you really have to be on Nutrisystem before you starting seeing results? Just finished month 1 and lost about 9 pounds! This post could not be written any better! Reading this post reminds me of my good old room mate! He was always trying new weight loss products.
I will forward this page to him. Fairly certain he will have a good read. Thank you for sharing! I just read this well written post. I have a handicapped daughter who has gained so much weight. We have tried everything with very little success. After taking to her doctors we decided to give NS a try. She started the program on February 16, She is loving the food and the program.
She has already dropped three pounds. Her beginning weight was So she has a long way to go. But the support and your post will definitely help her obtain her goals for healthier lifestyle.
