Everything You Need to Know About Your Turbo Takeoff WeekArticle posted in: Turbo13
Reaching your weight loss goal isn’t a sprint—it’s a steady jog, that brings you across the finish line at your own pace. But, when you start the journey, you want to know right away that you’re making progress with your smart choices. Waiting weeks or even months to see a difference can be very discouraging. According to Courtney McCormick, MPH, RDN, LDN, Nutrisystem Corporate Dietitian, “studies have shown that early weight loss is a predictor of long-term success.”
With Nutrisystem’s Turbo13 program and Turbo Takeoff, you move right into the fast lane and begin passing milestones immediately.
Turbo13 is a quick-start weight loss plan, designed to help speed up your results from the outset. In a clinical study, subjects lost up to 13 pounds and eight inches overall in their first month on the Turbo13 plan. This is two times the weight lost by subjects dieting on their own with DASH. You can expect to lose about one to two pounds per week, after the first month of Turbo13.
The key to the power of Turbo13 is the boost you get from the Turbo Takeoff kit when you begin the program. The Turbo Takeoff is entirely unique from the rest of your Nutrisystem program.
This week is a higher-intensity, kick-start, in which you are set up with just about everything you need to make your weight loss plan “take off,” including:
7 days of specially selected breakfasts, lunches and dinners.
Be sure to keep the meals you receive in your Turbo Takeoff box separate from the rest of your food, since these items were specially selected by our team of experts to cover all of your needs in the first week, while also encouraging fast weight loss.
7 Chocolate TurboShakes™ (for women) or 7 Nutri-Pro Shakes™ (for men) packed with protein and probiotics to support digestive health and help bust belly bloat.
Say goodbye to milkshakes and say hello to deliciously creamy TurboShakes that are high in protein and fiber to help fight hunger. These decadent drinks aren’t just a sweet and tasty way to fill up a grumbling stomach, they also provide probiotics to give your tummy a total reboot. Probiotics support the digestive system and reduce that bloated belly.
7 Peanut Butter Chocolate NutriCurb® bars that crush hunger with the protein and fiber you need to stay satisfied between meals.
Featuring the smooth and creamy goodness of pulverized peanuts, the crunchy delight of crispy rice and the sweet decadence of chocolate, this bar will have you questioning if you really are on a diet! Drizzled with peanut butter and just a dash of sea salt, this yummy chocolate bar has 13 grams of protein and five grams of fiber to help crush that hunger. So you’ll stay covered between meals.
With the Turbo Takeoff week, you get seven days of flavorful, specially selected meals plus scrumptious shakes and bars, all of which make results attainable, with little to no thought. But remember: You’ll also want to supplement your foods with at least four servings of non-starchy veggies. Other than at least 64 ounces of water, that’s the only thing you need to add in during your first week on Nutrisystem. No need to add in PowerFuels (like nuts and nut butters, lean meats and dairy), SmartCarbs (like fruits, whole grains and bread) and Extras (like salad dressings or coffee creamer) just yet. You’ll be adding those in once you’re finished your first week.
The Turbo Takeoff may not be easy; as with everything, change can be a bit challenging. But don’t worry. We’ve got you covered. You get a specially designed Daily Tracker log and access to our FREE food tracking app, Numi, which makes tracking your food, water, activity and weight easy. Plus, along the way, you’ll have a professional support team, with comprehensive counseling from trained weight loss counselors available seven days a week. Your Daily Tracker log, Numi account and expert help, will all remain vital pieces of your weight loss plan, long after you’ve completed the Turbo Takeoff week.
After completing your first week and the Turbo Takeoff week, you’ll move on to your regular Nutrisystem® meal plan. Click here for everything you need to know about what comes next >
