Family Meals: Never Be Left Out

Article posted in: Lifestyle

Your family orders Friday night pizza, but you heat up Nutrisystem meatloaf and mashed potatoes and make yourself a salad instead of succumbing to temptation. And then you feel really sorry for yourself. When you’re trying to lose weight, chances are you’ve experienced moments like this. It’s just human nature.

Actually, this particular pity party is a really easy thing to leave. Just coordinate your Nutrisystem entrée with whatever the family is eating. If they’re ordering pizza, you should plan on having a Nutrisystem pizza for dinner. Doctor it up by adding a little fresh spinach, some mushrooms or a little turkey pepperoni. Or if the family’s grilling burgers, you can join them by throwing your Nutrisystem burger on the grill for a minute or two, then piling the bun with extras you love, like lettuce, tomato, a little sautéed onion or some pickles.

Actually, with all the entrees Nutrisystem offers, it’s pretty easy to match anything your family is eating. All it takes is some coordination and advanced planning on your part. If you think about it, chances are that when your family sees you eating your Nutrisystem cookie, they’ll be dying for one of their own.
