**a guest post from my mom who is working on a weight loss program with Nutrisystem!**
There are several new announcements from @Nutrisystem and I am lucky enough to be a part of it! No, I have not started the program yet, but pretty soon! They have announced that Janet Jackson is the new spokesperson along with a brand new program called SUCCESS. I can’t wait to read all about it and to have support from Janet by reading about her weight loss success! Also, Nutrisystem and Ms. Jackson have created NutriBank which is a program to help raise food and funds for those in need. For every pound lost on Nutrisystem in 2012, the company will match it with one dollar’s worth of Nutrisystem® food. How wonderful! I am going to be able to lose weight AND help contribute dollars to help meet the goal! From what I hear, she will be very open and up front about her struggles with weight in order to help women like us who are learning a new way of healthy eating.
Now about the SUCCESS program!
I had the chance to try the brand new Chef’s Table meals before I even start the program. The new Chef’s Table Dinner Collection Meals are part of the launch of the SUCCESS program, the Company’s most comprehensive weight loss program. These meals all use a “steam and serve” microwave cooking method. I have tried all three! My favorite was the Whole Wheat Ricotta Crepes. I love ricotta cheese and figured it would be great. The tomato sauce was delicious with all the right seasonings. I will definitely put this in my next order. The others I got to try were Moroccan Inspired Chicken and Citrus Barbeque Glazed Pork. The chicken was pretty good and I am a very picky eater. I wasn’t as crazy about this meal as the Crepes, but still enjoyed it. The pork sounded and looked like something I would really like. However, it was rather spicy and being a Norwegian who is used to pretty bland food, this was a bit much for me. I am sure many others would really like this because it was quite flavorful!
I am really looking forward to starting this program. Plus, now I even get to try out the new SUCCESS program which includes more fresh frozen foods and new chocolate, vanilla, strawberry, and coffee advanced protein shakes, YUMMMM! The Nutrisystem® SUCCESS™ approach will help take the weight off and keep it off through frequent, portion-controlled, balanced nutrition and low Glycemic Index eating. I am tired of being overweight and I plan on putting together an exercise program too. I joined the local YMCA and also LOVE to work out to Tae Bo tapes. Once I start (hard part is day 1!) I find it quite rewarding and look forward to my daily work-outs. Countdown: 9 MORE DAYS…I START DECEMBER 26TH. I wasn’t as brave as some others who started last week! Good for them!
