5 Reasons Baby Weight is No Match For NutrisystemArticle posted in: Lifestyle
No sleep. No time to cook healthy meals (or even sit down and eat them). Barely time to shop for groceries and getting to an exercise class feels like it may never happen—like ever again. It’s tough to focus on you when there’s a new baby in town. So when your baby weight hits that post-pregnancy plateau, you need a simple and doable plan to help shed those stubborn pounds.
Nutrisystem offers nutrition, hunger control, variety and most importantly for busy moms: Convenience. With four weeks of ready-to-go foods delivered right to your home, it saves you time and effort.
Here are five reasons that Nutrisystem is your solution to baby weight:
1. You’ll see results. Fast.
There’s nothing worse than trying to get dressed after having a baby. You don’t quite fit into your old clothes… but you don’t want to buy new ones since you really are determined to lose weight ASAP. Luckily, with the Nutrisystem program, you can lose up to 18 pounds and 10 inches overall in your first two months.* That’s because with your first shipment, you’ll get a special first week of food designed to help jump start your weight loss (learn more about how this week is different from the rest of your plan here >). Then, once you finish your first week, you’ll transition to losing about one to pounds per week, which is the recommended amount by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Plus, you’ll get access to amazing tools that will help you see better results and reach your goals faster >
2. You get a refresher course in proper portions.
You can’t tell how much you’re actually eating when you grab a handful of pretzels every time you pass the open bag on your counter or munch on your older kid’s leftover lunch while feeding the baby. Nutrisystem foods are perfectly portioned, so we’ll keep you on track when you just don’t have time to measure out your foods. Plus, we’ll help you understand what a healthy serving looks like and how to eat better so you can be more likely to keep the baby weight off long after Nutrisystem.

3. There are plenty of no-prep options.
Every mom knows that convenience is key. While taking hours upon hours to cook healthy meals might sound like a good idea, it usually just isn’t the reality for most moms. Luckily, Nutrisystem has a lots of ready-to-eat meals and snacks on the menu. From Cinnamon Streusel Muffins to Chocolatey Pretzel Bars, Broccoli & Cheese Stuffed Chicken Breast to frozen treats, there is a huge variety of grab-and-go options that make eating while holding a sleeping baby or driving to the pediatrician possible.
4. It helps keep your energy up.
Motherhood isn’t exactly easy. Especially when you’ve got an infant who’d rather cry all night than sleep. If there ever were an important time to eat for energy, it would be now, right? Nutrisystem meals are made with the optimal balance of lean protein, healthy carbs (like filling fiber), and healthy fats. So when mommyhood has you feeling totally depleted, you’ll at least be giving your body the nutrition it needs to fire on all cylinders. Plus, on Nutrisystem you’ll be eating every two to three hours, so you’re never hungry.
5. It can work for some nursing moms.
If you’re still nursing, but anxious to drop the baby weight, we’ve got good news: Nutrisystem can still work for you! Your little one must be at least four months old and eating solid foods before you can consider the program. Plus, you’ll need to follow a special meal plan, take prenatal vitamins and consume more calories than what our regular diet program provides so you can keep up your milk supply while losing weight. But as long as you qualify, we’ve got a meal plan for you! To make sure this plan will work for you if you are nursing, call a Nutrition and Dietary team member at 1-855-934-8729.
