By: Ava Alderman: It’s no accident that many folks who are new to nutrisystem are intrigued by and attracted to nutrisystem’s turbo ten plan. Not only has the company deeply discounted the price, but they’ve also selected special foods to enhance your weight loss and to help you shed inches. In addition, they’ve included popular shakes that are pretty expensive to order separately.
But with these additions, some people worry that the plan might take a lot of work or be complicated, especially if you are new to nutrisystem or haven’t researched it extensively. People might wonder how an absolute beginner might approach this accelerated plan? Do you need to keep track of your foods? Is any special shopping involved? Do you need to worry about exercise? How does it all work?And how hard is it to keep track of it all? Is it too much for someone not familiar with the program?
I actually think that turbo ten is a great starting point. Nutrisystem always does most of the work for you. Once you order your food, all you really need to do is choose which of the prepackaged foods to eat that day. Yes, you are asked to add in fresh sides. But the company does a very good job of providing food lists with portion sizes. And we’re not talking about large amounts of food here. You are simply adding a piece of fruit or a serving of vegetables or dairy. These are very small sides that should not require a lot of grocery shopping. The sides are simply meant to enhance the meal with fresh, healthy food. But they are the accompaniment, not the meal.
The shakes (that are included for free in turbo 10) are consumed between meals. You can also have a snack or a dessert and these are included in your package. There is nothing that you have to figure out about any of this. The inital “kick start” foods meant to encourage the weight loss (so that you get results in a short period of time) are included and their use is pretty self explanatory. Basically if you eat anything in your package at the allotted time and add in the appropriate side, then you will be “safe” or in compliance and you don’t really need to think about anything else. You don’t have to count calories or add points or anything like that. These calculations have been done for you.
As far as exercise, the basic requirement is that you move for half an hour per day. They aren’t really picky about this. It can be done all at once or broken down. For example, you can do fifteen minutes twice a day or twenty minutes at one point and ten minutes at another (as long as you’re getting half an hour per day.) You could also do it all at once if you wanted. They aren’t talking about hardcore workouts either and no speciality equipment is required. Brisk walking counts. Biking counts. This is a pretty easy requirement for most people to meet.
In short, turbo ten is not complicated and it offers many freebees and incentives that aren’t always available. The free shakes are usually very popular and the price is very aggressive for an awful lot of food. If you’ve wanted to try nutrisystem but were waiting for the right time, this might be it.
