Glycemic Index Nutrisystem Meal Plan

The glycemic index diet can be confusing. Just because a food is low on the index doesn't mean it's healthy. And some high glycemic index foods offer a lot of nutrition. Also, the diet doesn't offer advice on non-carb foods. It's up to you to figure out how many calories and how much fat you're getting each day. And eating some foods in combination -- like a high glycemic index carb with protein and fat, for example -- can affect how much your blood sugar rises.

You can shop and cook like you normally would, but you need to use ingredients that are low on the glycemic index. Packaged foods or meals: None are required, but certain programs -- like Nutrisystem -- that follow the glycemic index diet do include packaged meals. Exercise is not part of this diet. You can choose foods you like, but you may need to make substitutions. Your diet needs to be healthy, and that involves more than the glycemic index.

Be wary of diets that recommend extreme approaches, like eating a lot of meat or other foods that are high in saturated fat. How much you spend depends on where you shop for groceries and the foods you buy. If you join a plan, you will have to pay the cost of packaged food. Usually you'll do this program on your own. Each plan comes with 28 breakfast meals, 28 lunch meals and 28 dinner meals.

Most of the meals, with the exception of the fresh frozen meals on the select plan, are portable, which means they do not need to be refrigerated or frozen. The Nutrisystem diet plan does not provide you all the food you need, however; you are required to add fruits, vegetables, lean protein and dairy products, which you must purchase yourself.

While on Nutrisystem, you will eat five to six small meals per day. When you sign up for Nutrisystem, you not only receive the premade meals, but you also gain access to their member community.

Here you can log your starting point, your goals, your weight and your measurements. You will also have access to a grocery guide and a meal planner, which help simplify your shopping.

If you feel as though you are faltering or you just want some support, you can connect with others on the Nutrisystem plan on the discussion boards.

I just learned that recently too. My mom was on a low glycemic kick for a while. We never did get around to making out own meals. I tend to have weird sudden drops in my blood sugar. I know when its coming because I get clammy, shaky, and really out of it. Want to lose weight and get healthy on Nutrisystem?
