Budget Conscious and Looking to Lose Weight? Nutrisystem Worked For This BachelorArticle posted in: Success Stories - Men
Dieting can involve lots of math: Counting calories, measuring portions in ounces and calculating how many grams of carbs, fats and protein you can eat each day. Before he started a journey that shed 85 pounds* from his frame, Edouard Dorval was worried about his budget and how dollars and cents factored into the equation.
A bachelor, Edouard didn’t cook much, so using a plan with pre-measured, easy-to-prepare foods like Nutrisystem seemed like it would work with his lifestyle —something other diets and exercise programs had failed to do. But he wanted to be sure it worked with his budget, too. Diets like Nutrisystem, where food is delivered pre-prepared, often get labeled as “really expensive.” When Eduoard compared it to his normal eating, the results surprised him.
“Compare the cost to what you are currently spending on food every day,” he says. “The results are likely to come out nearly identical.”
With the plan on budget, Dorval felt free to get started. But it was another math problem that had inspired him in the first place: While at a water park with his then-girlfriend, the couple’s total weight was above the limits for many of the slides. Dorval knew he was the reason.
He’d tried other programs before, but couldn’t make weight loss stick.
“I tried all different things—intense workouts, cleanses, a weight loss program that has motivational meetings—nothing worked,” he says. “Then I tried Nutrisystem.”
The program worked for Eduoard and it gave him more than just a new body. He says he has a new outlook on himself. Losing the weight has taught him “that I am smart, that I am focused,” he says. “I feel good, I look good and I have more energy to do more.”
One of those things he needs to do more is shopping: After 40 pounds of weight loss*, Dorval says a pair of his pants literally fell off because they were too big to wear any longer. Now, he’s got a new look.
“I always liked tailored shirts, but they didn’t make them in my size,” he says.
Now he gets to wear those shirts. And while he had to invest in them (and some new pants), Dorval says those dollars and cents were worth rewarding himself for his hard-earned success.
“Remember how long it took you to put the weight on,” Dorval says to those who want lightning-fast results. “Be fair. Don’t get upset and don’t quit if you don’t lose it all the very first month.”
