More than just being fuel for his body, food had become a substitute for the things that Jason had lost: As someone who experienced the same issues, I know firsthand that leading a sedentary lifestyle leads to relying on food as a way to curb stress and depression. But now that Jason had a second child on the way he knew that he had to change his eating habits once and for all. Jason looked through different diet systems until he finally found Nutrisystem, which promised results while still allowing him to enjoy his favorite foods.
As someone who has tried over half-a-dozen different diets, I know how hard it is to stop eating what we like because diet food tastes…well, like diet food! Now instead of eating more than 5, calories a day, he found himself reducing that amount to just 1, calories a day.
Slowly but surely he started exercising again and, even though at the beginning he could barely walk, he started seeing improvements even before most of the weight came off. In my case, I went through several popular diets before I finally found a program that did the job. Jason, however, found a tried and tested system and stuck with it until the end.
Jason says that what made this journey easier than previous attempts was having a plan that would walk him through it, step by step, from beginning to end. Nutrisystem gave Jason the structure he needed to be successful long term. The system told him exactly what to eat, when to do it, and even included food which was easy to prepare, tasty, and nutritious.
No more trips to the supermarket, where endless shelves of snacks and prepared foods could tempt him. Luckily for Jason, he always loved to keep himself active in his younger years, and his newfound body allowed him to retake his old hobbies again.
Not only did he start playing golf and other sports again, but he even had the energy to take new challenges, such as running his first 5K race! In the end, Jason lost an outstanding lbs and in his late 30s is now fitter than ever. This radical change gave him all the confidence he needed to try new things and indulge in what matters the most to him, his family, and not just on food.
Now the father of two, Jason feels happier and healthier, which in turn has made him into a better father and husband. Despite being so successful, I found that Jason struggled with the same ups and downs as I did.

Any vegetable juice that does not have a lot of added sugar, corn syrup, etc. In fact you may want to learn to juice or liquefy your own vegetables using a juicer or NutriBullet or Ninja. I have used NutriBullet and am not using the Ninja, I like to have the pulp of the fruit or vegetables with my drink. Thanks for all the great info!
I don't see "desserts" on the diabetes list and would rather not use the calorie packs; can you tell me what makes up a mid-afternoon meal? Yes, you can do the same thing as the mid-morning snack. I just provide a dessert option for those who enjoy their sweets to show that you can still eat them in moderation and lose weight.
I don't eat dairy other than yogurt which I'm including in my meal paln; is there a dairy substitute when it calls for 1 dairy? The only option that comes to mind right now is soy yogurt. I drink almond milk as well Sometimes it is better. I am lactose intolerant, so always look for dairy that is lactose free.
This is easier to do with cheese, especially appreciate the cheeses made by Cabot, almost all if not all are marked lactose free. Kraft shredded Mozzarella is also lactose free.
I followed the diet with some protein as suggested. It is really like magic! Give a try on this, this diet plan clearly works. Is this good for someone who wants to lose more than pounds?
I would like to try this, but it seems like I would be eating more calories. I will try this when my nutrisystem ends though. Depending upon your age and how much you have to lose, it may actually be beneficial to start out eating what seems like more, I would try the suggested amounts, and depending upon how things go for a week, adjust accordingly.
