Celebrity Style – Getting In Shape For Summer!

Continuing our new article series on getting you ready for summer and looking like a celeb, FanBolt recently had the opportunity to review the NutriSystem program.

I, Liz Bailey, am really excited about this program as I’ve heard so many wonderful things about it, and there have been a number of celebrities that have lost a notable amount of weight from it – including Marie Osmond and Jillian Barberie Reynolds.

So for this next month, I’ll be sticking to the woman’s plan that NutriSystem offers, and I’ll also be exercising on an every other day basis. I’ll document the foods I eat (any breaks from the routine that occur), as well as my exercise program. This has been a program that has been proven to work for not only celebrities but also for the everyday guy and gal. So we’ll see how it goes!

Week 1 of 4 – I just got a gigantic box in the mail with 4 weeks worth of food. It was exercise just getting it to my apartment! I’m waiting just a couple days to start so it can be at the beginning of week.

The package also came with a kit that included a meal planner (This allows me to document everything I eat, the glasses of water I drink, the exercising I do and for how long I do it, and my current weight. It also comes with a grocery guide, so I know what I can and can’t buy from the store.), a resource guide that better explains the program and how to manage my account (so I can track things online), an on-the-go meal planner (If you’re eating out one night this tells you what you can and can’t eat.), and lastly a Woman’s Walk DVD designed to help you loose weight at home.

Each day I will rate how much like the food on a 1-10 scale for each meal, so you can get a better idea of what foods are yummy and which ones aren’t so much.

NutriSystem: Ravioli Formaggio

End of Week Weight: 144 (Lost 3 pounds!)

Thoughts thus far: The foods aren’t too bad. Lunch is my least favorite, but all the other meals are quite good. One thing I’ve noticed is that a lot of the meals are really high in sodium, so you have to make sure that you drink a lot of water on this diet, otherwise you’re going to retain water weight and you’ll think this diet isn’t working.

Another thing that is really great about this program is how easy it is. I don’t have to worry about going to the store and picking out all these meals that fit into a certain plan. They’re all supplied for me, and I don’t have to worry about a thing other than opening a box and popping it into the microwave or oven.

I feel like I have a good routine down though and I feel like I definitely see progress in week one, so I’m excited to see where week 2 will lead me!
