Losing weight is first and foremost an issue of eating the right amount of calories energy. This is why before starting a weight loss program, doctors and dietitians will always calculate your metabolic rate--the energy you expend throughout the day. Without knowing the number of calories your body burns, there is no way you can know how much food you are allowed to eat each day in order to reach your weight loss goal.
And so losing weight becomes a gambling game. Nutrisystem's first concern when you join their program is to estimate your metabolic rate. They do this by means of a questionnaire that let's them know your gender, age, height, weight, and your level of physical activity. Based on this data, they craft a weight loss plan specifically for you. You can choose five Medifast meals every day, and possibilities include pretzels, scrambled eggs, oatmeal, brownies and soups.
If you prefer, you can accept the default menu that Nutrisystem suggests when you sign up for the program. Medifast and Nutrisystem require you to purchase other foods in addition to the diet products. The Medifast Lean and Green Meal includes 6 to 8 ounces of lean protein, vegetables and up to two servings of healthy fats.
You can also have two small servings of low-calorie condiments each day. On Nutrisystem, you eat healthy foods from the grocery store to supplement your Nutrisystem meals and snacks.
You can have fruits, vegetables, healthy carbohydrates, reduced fat dairy and lean protein. Both Medifast and Nutrisystem offer options for men, women, people with diabetes, older adults and vegetarians. All such information is used with permission.

Because the program may be too expensive for certain people, ideas for less expensive alternatives to NutriSystem are provided on this page. Some prepackaged meals that you buy in the supermarket or online are better than what I was eating when on NutriSystem. Personally, I can no longer eat their foods because there are too many things in them that I am sensitive too now I also am not thrilled with how much sodium is in prepared foods.
Perhaps one day changes will be made to accommodat e those of us who have food sensitivities. If this were to happen I may try their program ag ain. The most important aspect of any weight loss program is having an organized plan to follow, so I am attempting to put one together here, for myself and anyone else that might be interested.
