The Crazy Suburban Mom: Second to the last how I got to Nutrisystem...

Second to the last how I got to Nutrisystem...

Sadly, I spent only 4 months on the old Nutrisystem plan.  While it was great for losing weight there was a flaw in the old program; one that is common in low carb diets.  The majority of fiber in the diet wasn't contained in the food, but in the boxes around the food.

*I want to jump ot the current version of Nutrisystem which is amazingly loaded with with fiber. Fibertasic, even.*

After four months on the old Nutrisystem diet I'd lost 40 plus pounds.  I have pictures of myself somewhere with both  legs down one side of pre-Nutrisystem pants.  (The pants I was told not to wear to work anymore.)

The lack of fiber wasn't just inconvenient for me though, it was a major hoopla - I kid you not - Think: Mega-Hemorrhoids.  And surgery.  But not a little out patient rubber band falala.  Think full-on several days inpatient, face down on an operation room table,  8 weeks out of work and many more sitting on a doughnut. 

I had to quit Nutrisystem because I needed more fiber in my diet during recovery (and forever).   I was scared to death that I was going to gain everything back but a funny thing happened.

owie! That is awful! I wonder if they encouraged you to drink metamucil or anything? I used to work for Nutrisystem and we had nurses there for weigh-ins--didn't they help you at all for that?? I'm sure you weren't the only one, right?

I certainly hope they have fixed that part of the diet!
