My question is Which is less damaging to a Nutrisystem diet? Thanks for any response. Another question... Hi to all and.....

SEASONS GREETINGS!.

Today is my 53rd day on Nutrisystem and I seem to be going no.

Where fast....let me explain....

I started on October 31st and have been following the NS.

Regimen and have not cheated or eaten any other foods.

Other than those provided by Nutrisystem or the additional food.

Items that supplement the program..

At the end of the first Nutrisystem box, I had lost 13 lbs., but since.

Then have not lost any more. I have, however, lost lots of.

Inches which is very satisfying....example: I've gone from.

A size 44 or 46 pants to a size 39 which is now slightly.

Loose..

I tell you, I certainly don't mind, nor will I ever.

Complain about the extra expenses I'm having due to the.

Frequent alterations.....

But, the pounds are no longer being lost....and I seem to.

Be stuck at the 13 lb lost and at the 197 lb. mark..

Also,.

I can weigh one morning and I am 197 lb. and the.

NEXT morning I am 2 lbs+ HIGHER....then the NEXT.

Morning it will be LOWER again..

IS THIS NORMAL?.

I always weigh at the same time of morning (after my.

Bathroom duties and before showering) and before I eat.

My breakfast..

I have fluxuated as much as 3 lbs from.

Morning to morning..

But, I never go below that 197lb mark, which is not only.

Disappointing, but very frustrating!.

I bought a new.

Scale (Omrom, HBF-500 Body composition Monitor with.

Scale) , suggested by one of the members, and it seems.

To be very accurate since I took it with me and checked it.

Against my doctor's scale last Friday..

I am excercising by walking about 2 miles a day, plus I.

Have an exercise program at home and also swim at the.

Gym a minimum of 2 times a week..

WHAT AM I DOING WRONG?.

Since I am not losing pounds, all suggestions will be.

Greatly appreciated..

Thanks,.

Silver.

Again......Best Wishes to all for a.....

Happy & Wonderful.

Holiday Season.....

And a.

Happy, Healthy, & Prosperous New Year!!!..

Hmm... I need to find out myself. I don't know what is the answer. I'll do some research in Google and get back to you if I bump into an useful answer. You should email the people at Nutrisystem as they probably could answer your Nutrisystem question..

It is hard to drink the 8 glasses of water during the winter but are you drinking all the water? Water is important for losing weight..

I would check with the nutritionist at Nutrisystem to see if they want you to increase your calorie intake because of the exercise schedule you are keeping..

Those are the 2 items I would look at first. Other than that keep with the program and give your body some more time to adjust to the new lifestyle..

You haven't said anything about your height/weight ratio or your age. Maybe you were carrying good muscle mass to begin with at 210 and are doing more sculpting than fat loss. Or maybe not. I agree with the others. Call a counselor and be ready to answer all those questions, including measurements. You'll see from the charts that when many of us near our goal weights our weight loss levels off, but measurements continue to change.

From what you've said, everything is good, the initial momentum has just slowed. I think that's normal...

Your waist size changes are nothing short of phenominal! Take it as a WIN! Obviously, your body is re-sculpting itself and maybe wants to hang on to all that new muscle. Not a bad thing a'tall!.

Thanks Howard....did you also have as much as 3 lbs.

Variance from day to day?.

I have a doctor friend (not my personal doctor) who.

Lives near my home and he was kind enough to humor.

Me last Friday. He allowed me to test my new scale,.

Even though I was not there for any of his professional services..

I weighed myself, 4 of his nurses, and then the doctor.

Himself....each on his scale and then mine. The weight.

Of each person (all 5 of us) was the same on BOTH scales..

So, I figured there was no problem with my new scale.

Providing a correct weight..

I haven't figured out all the bells and whistles...ie. body fat,.

BMI, etc....so, I'm only using it for weighing for now..

I will do as you suggest and contact a counselor..

Btw...I just read your profile...and you are someone for me to.

Emulate.......

Before NS), so I am sure that I am getting the 8 glasses that I need..

And, yes I will check with the Nutrisystem nutritionist..

I have that scale too, also took it to my Dr.

And it weighed the same as well..

I have started watching my body fat% on that.

Scale. Even though I have only been losing about.

1 pound a week. I have gone from 25.4% to 21.2%.

In about a month. I am not seeing the scale move.

As much as I would still like too, but to see the BF%.

Move that much as well as all the other numbers.

On that scale are moving as well. For instance,.

The scale will give you the caloric intake that you.

Need to maintain your current weight. That has.

Gone from over 1900 a day to below 1700 now..

I LIKE THAT, A LOT!.

I have lost about 4 pounds in a month, but have lost.

2 1/2 inches on my waist and 3 inches around the.

Ol' moobs..

All that to say, Call a counselor and drink more water...

First off, Congratulations on the inches lost..

It sounds like you may be getting to know your tailor on a first name basis..

From what you wrote, you look to be doing everything perfectly. I think better-40 may have hit it....you are doing the body sculpting and not the weight loss at the moment..

I have found that it is definitely normal for the scale to vary throughout the day as well as from day to day. There's actually been a few threads stating the same..

I agree with the above posters to check with a counselor. When I stalled they had me switch up my lunch and dinners. It worked like a charm. I have also seen posts by those who were engaging in lots of exercise (the Nutrisystem program calls for 3 times a week) and the counselors had them add a fruit or a protein. They will be able to guide you best in this area..

Keep up the great work...

Well, I'm 5'6" and almost 77 y/o (only 18 inside, though) and two years ago I weighed in at 241 lbs. with a huge.

Waist line.....

At that time, my doctor scared me into cutting back (due to being a borderline Type II Diabetic) and so I cut back on my food intake, began excercising more, watching my weight, and lost 31 lbs over the next two years. At the time I joined Nutrisystem I was 210lbs. lighter..

But, I still had that huge belly..that I wanted to get rid of,.

Just so you know, the caloric content of the Men's program is set for men to lose weight at a slow and steady pace who have a very sedentary lifestyle to very little exercise. If you are doing more than minimal daily exercise, which it sounds like you are, you will probably have to increase your daily calories in order to get that scale needle to move downwards. Try adding about 300 extra calories to your daily diet and report back in a week. I think you'll like the results. Of course this will be a more difficult week than most with Christmas and everything...

All of you are making me feel better about what I have.

Actually accomplished in so short a time. I guess it was just the holiday blues that started me on this rant..

It's a bit stupid, I guess, for me to worry too much about not losing the weight, since I am actually VERY pleased about the loss in inches on my waist..

EVERYONE is commenting about my new, smaller waist and that makes me feel really good! AND I LOOK BETTER!.

It was just that I couldn't understand the huge fluctuation.

In my weight from one day to another which realy got me started today.....

Yeah, I had some pants taken up (waist) last week and.

On Saturday I went back with them again. He thought.

He had not done it right, but that was not it. I've lost so.

Much in the thighs (4-1/2"), and the butt (6-3/4") now,.

That my pants are hanging down in the back and I am walking all over the cuffs in the back...and when I walked up stairs my heel would get caught in the leg..

He has now said that nothing can be done any longer to.

My old pants and suggested that I buy new pants....with slimmer legs rather than the full/relaxed cut. I will do that later today...

Silver, varying weights of 3-5 pounds a day and even throughout the day is normal, do not worry yourself about that. That is why many suggest to weight yourself just once a week so you don't get frustrated at the variance..

As many have stated above, muscle mass weighs more than fat mass so make sure you're looking at BMI and %fat on your scale..

The fact that your measurements (waist size) are decreasing is fantastic. Seeing as how you aren't losing weight may mean that your muscle mass is just increasing. Do you weight lift a lot?.

As stated, please contact a counselor and make sure you're getting the appropriate intake of calories based on your height, age, and daily activity..

Edit: oh and of course DRINK TONS OF WATER! It is recommended to drink 8-10 glasses of 8oz per day and another +1 8oz per every 25plbs overweight. However, the more the better. Also, if you are weight lifting quite a bit as I have stated, be patient with your weight loss. For many it takes a while for that metabolism to finally kick in and get past that plateau...

Now that the weather is getting colder and there is snow and ice, and all of that mushy stuff in NYC....I may not be doing the walking as I have been doing....but I will give that infor the counselor when I contact them..

I have no family in NYC and I want to stick with Nutrisystem and.

Not mess it up by eating out. So, I have advised the friends, whom had asked me to share their Christmas dinner, that I need their help. I told the truth, that I did not want to be tempted, so soon into the program, and they understood. So, I will take my own entree and share.

Some salad and vegetables, but only the amount that I am allowed, which she has said she will portionb out and serve to me separately. But, the turkey, stuffing, and all the NO!.

I will take your advice and weigh in once a week...say on Mondays. I think all the weight fluctuation from day to day really got me in the dumps. So, I am glad to hear so many others say it is normal..

I guess I am just going to have to sit down and figure out all that stuff my new scale does. I haven't done it so far because I have a problem seeing and the print is so small that it is difficult for me to read, and it strains my one good eye. But, I can see it IS important to know about the BMI and % of fat, calories, etc....so I will do it. The main thing that I bought the scale for was that I could pull up the bar and see the numbers clearly.....before my stomach got in the way and the numbers at my feet were to far away to see.....

No, I had to stop weight lifting years ago because of my.

Bad back and arthritic hands....can't hold onto them any longer without worrying about dropping things..

My main excercise is walking...I walk everywhere in NYC.

Unless it is bad weather and then I will take a bus or subway. I also live on the top floor of a 5 floor walkup....(ca. 1840's NY brownstone) which keeps my legs in very good condition. I go up and down them ab out 3 or 4 times a day. I also have a water excercise class in the gym pool 2 or so times a week. It is a shame, but they.

No longer will allow us to do laps, as I used to do. I use the bicycle and the tread mill machine...

Congrats on your progress so far Silver! The amount of inches you have lost is amazing!.

The guys who have replied here have given you some great advice. The only thing that I would add that has worked for me is a weekly meal out. I appreciate what you have said about being 100% and that is commendable, but I've found that you can still be 100% on plan when eating non-NS foods. My experience (and it is different for all of us) is that after a meal out the scale really moves for me. Someone has said that the counselors will sometimes have you change up dinners and lunches. I think one meal out does the same thing..

Keep us posted!..

Why Scales Lie by Renee Cloe, ACE Certified Personal Trainer (reprinted with permission:.

Http://www.naturalphysiques.com/.

).

Weve been told over and over again that daily weighing is unnecessary, yet many of us cant resist peeking at that number every morning. If you just cant bring yourself to toss the scale in the trash, you should definitely familiarize yourself with the factors that influence it's readings. From water retention to glycogen storage and changes in lean body mass, daily weight fluctuations are normal. They are not indicators of your success or failure. Once you understand how these mechanisms work, you can free yourself from the daily battle with the bathroom scale..

Water makes up about 60% of total body mass. Normal fluctuations in the bodys water content can send scale-watchers into a tailspin if they dont understand whats happening. Two factors influencing water retention are water consumption and salt intake. Strange as it sounds, the less water you drink, the more of it your body retains. If you are even slightly dehydrated your body will hang onto it's water supplies with a vengeance, possibly causing the number on the scale to inch upward. The solution is to drink plenty of water..

Excess salt (sodium) can also play a big role in water retention. A single teaspoon of salt contains over 2,000 mg of sodium. Generally, we should only eat between 1,000 and 3,000 mg of sodium a day, so it's easy to go overboard. Sodium is a sneaky substance. You would expect it to be most highly concentrated in salty chips, nuts, and crackers. However, a food doesnt have to taste salty to be loaded with sodium.

The more highly processed a food is, the more likely it is to have a high sodium content. Thats why, when it comes to eating, it's wise to stick mainly to the basics: fruits, vegetables, lean meat, beans, and whole grains. Be sure to read the labels on canned foods, boxed mixes, and frozen dinners..

Women may also retain several pounds of water prior to menstruation. This is very common and the weight will likely disappear as quickly as it arrives. Pre-menstrual water-weight gain can be minimized by drinking plenty of water, maintaining an exercise program, and keeping high-sodium processed foods to a minimum..

Another factor that can influence the scale is glycogen. Think of glycogen as a fuel tank full of stored carbohydrate. Some glycogen is stored in the liver and some is stored the muscles themselves. This energy reserve weighs more than a pound and it's packaged with 3-4 pounds of water when it's stored. Your glycogen supply will shrink during the day if you fail to take in enough carbohydrates. As the glycogen supply shrinks you will experience a small imperceptible increase in appetite and your body will restore this fuel reserve along with it's associated water.

These fluctuations have nothing to do with fat loss, although they can make for some unnecessarily dramatic weigh-ins if youre prone to obsessing over the number on the scale..

Otherwise rational people also tend to forget about the actual weight of the food they eat. For this reason, it's wise to weigh yourself first thing in the morning before youve had anything to eat or drink. Swallowing a bunch of food before you step on the scale is no different than putting a bunch of rocks in your pocket. The 5 pounds that you gain right after a huge dinner is not fat. Its the actual weight of everything youve had to eat and drink. The added weight of the meal will be gone several hours later when youve finished digesting it..

Exercise physiologists tell us that in order to store one pound of fat, you need to eat 3,500 calories more than your body is able to burn. In other words, to actually store the above dinner as 5 pounds of fat, it would have to contain a whopping 17,500 calories. This is not likely, in fact it's not humanly possible. So when the scale goes up 3 or 4 pounds overnight, rest easy, it's likely to be water, glycogen, and the weight of your dinner. Keep in mind that the 3,500 calorie rule works in reverse also. In order to lose one pound of fat you need to burn 3,500 calories more than you take in.

When you follow a very low calorie diet that causes your weight to drop 10 pounds in 7 days, it's physically impossible for all of that to be fat. What youre really losing is water, glycogen, and muscle..

This brings us to the scales sneakiest attribute. It doesnt just weigh fat. It weighs muscle, bone, water, internal organs and all. When you lose "weight," that doesnt necessarily mean that youve lost fat. In fact, the scale has no way of telling you what youve lost (or gained). Losing muscle is nothing to celebrate.

The more muscle you have the more calories your body burns, even when youre just sitting around. Thats one reason why a fit, active person is able to eat considerably more food than the dieter who is unwittingly destroying muscle tissue..

Robin Landis, author of "Body Fueling," compares fat and muscles to feathers and gold. One pound of fat is like a big fluffy, lumpy bunch of feathers, and one pound of muscle is small and valuable like a piece of gold. Obviously, you want to lose the dumpy, bulky feathers and keep the sleek beautiful gold. The problem with the scale is that it doesnt differentiate between the two. It cant tell you how much of your total body weight is lean tissue and how much is fat. There are several other measuring techniques that can accomplish this, although they vary in convenience, accuracy, and cost.



If the thought of being pinched, dunked, or gently zapped just doesnt appeal to you, dont worry. The best measurement tool of all turns out to be your very own eyes. How do you look? How do you feel? How do your clothes fit? Are your rings looser? Do your muscles feel firmer? These are the true measurements of success. If you are exercising and eating right, dont be discouraged by a small gain on the scale. Fluctuations are perfectly normal. Expect them to happen and take them in stride. Its a matter of mind over scale...

I think what you are seeing is VERY common. It's a weight plateau. From what you've said, with your belt size going down, the diet is working. Keep at it and I'm confident that suddenly the weight will start dropping again..

Pam's post says most of this but I'll add that while you might weigh yourself daily, pick 1 day a week as your day of record and track your weight that way. While I'm still weighing myself daily, I track by month now...

Roundtrip.....and for the first time, I really felt that my.

Body was "different." I was walking faster and steadily,.

With no effort at all...which is not exactly the way it has.

Been for a long, long time....and I felt as if I could do.

Another 2 or 3 miles with no effort..

On this route I have a couple of stopping places where I.

Usually rest for a few minutes, but NOT once did I have to.

Stop to rest today....and when I got home I went up the 5.

Flights of stairs in one bound...with no stopping..

Well.....my intentions were good, but my will power was.

Not as good.....

I took my "Christmas" Nutrisystem meal with me to my friends, but.

I ended up eating their food, and I brought the Nutrisystem items.

Back home. I did, however, eat lots less than I normally.

Would have eaten...no 2nd or 3rd helpings and only 1 very.

Small piece of pie. I'm happy that I was able to somewhat.

Control myself from acting like a pig!.

The only problem.

Was, that I had very little excercise during my 2-1/2 day.

Stay, and that I'm afraid not a good thing..

I left NYC at 197lbs.....and this morning I was 201lbs! So,.

I have a big job before me to lose that and get back on track..

BUT........with everyones encouragement.......

I jumped right back in the saddle and didn't weigh.

Again until this morning (Monday)......and, I am now.

I hope that by next Monday....I will have a new, lower.

I just hope and pray that I now have enough will power.

By all means enjoy New Years festivities, but I counsel anyone trying to lose weight that you must give up the libations. At least for the first few months. If you have difficulties giving the spirits a break for 3 or 4 months, then weight-loss is not your most pressing issue. I make NO judgement mind you, just facts....If you drink, you will slow or stop your weight-loss altogether..

I don't drink alcohol any longer, so that's no problem for me during the holidays. I discovered Rusty Nails in 1967, loved the taste, it didn't seem all that strong, and I.

Didn't realize that I was drinking too much too quickly. I over indulged and ended up.

In Philadelphia's Jefferson Hospital with alcohol poisoning. I don't think I've ever been.

Sicker!.

That cured me of anything alcoholic and I've never been able to touch the stuff since!.

I do love unsweetened iced tea and at parties, like New Year's Eve and during games on.

New Year's Day, I usually drink gallons of it....along with dips, cheeses, crackers, chips,.

(plus BBQ, Burgers, blackeyed peas, collard greens and ham hocks, fried chicken, ham.

Salad sandwiches...a tradition of my heritage), and all that good stuff..

No wonder I'm over weight..:shrug:.

But, since I gained so much over Christmas I have to be diligent and not do it this time..

Instead, I will eat raw vegetables with spiced up fat free cottage cheese, and lots of water..

If I do over indulge a bit, then I will just get back up on that saddle on Jan 2, and start.

All over again...

Great attitude! Abstinence works best for me as well, too bad we can't abstain from eating. Fortunately the decision as to what we shove in our pie hole and in what amount, is just that, simply a decision. Make that decision with your brain, not your stomach. This is a great thread...

Never did like rusty nails so that won't help me. But then again getting wasted on tequila didn't stop me from drinking...

Tequila is a most polite drink. It lets you know when you've had the last shot you need. Without fail, if the last shot jumps halfway up my throat and goes back down, I've stopped myself. Others soldiered on and met tequila's other side. I live to drink tequila another day..

Oh, and the more you pay for tequila, the better off you are. Some tequilas are worth sipping from a brandy glass...
