Food Is Fuel for Life Nourish to Flourish

We think about food way too much.
We overthink our daily food choices on a routine basis, making things
increasingly difficult on ourselves. It’s why more than half of us are overweight, and almost all of us struggle to maintain a healthy weight. As a society, our favorite three words seem to be What’s for dinner? while we’re constantly mustering up all the willpower we can to avoid overeating and bingeing.
Your head tells you one thing—that carrot sticks would be a much better choice than that half-gallon of cherry chocolate chip ice cream—but your habits take you down a different path and you’re stuck once again. It seems impossible to find direction, let alone the strength to go on.
I know. I’ve seen this struggle firsthand with my patients, over and over
again. This constant battle with what we eat has turned food into nothing
shy of a four-letter word. But no longer!
Starting today, we’re looking at food as fuel and as a tool to help you lose
weight. We’re going to learn about it and use it to get the best mileage we
can out of life.
The Need for Nutrition
Anytime you consider starting a weight-loss program, the big question is,
What do I get to eat? Pasta? Desserts? Snacks? Wine? You’re probably wondering the same thing about this program, and while it’s tempting to jump ahead and fill you in on the exciting, new NutriSystem Nourish meal plan we’ve put together, let me tell you that you get to eat all those great-tasting things plus a whole lot more.
Food is important to us, especially when we’re trying to lose weight, and
when viewed as fuel, it takes on even more significance in our lives. Questions like what kind of this should I eat and how much of that should I have trouble us every day, and it seems almost weekly there’s some new study unveiling the latest pros and cons about the foods we eat. We’re constantly surrounded by food issues and difficult choices, and sometimes just knowing what to feed ourselves seems nearly impossible.
That’s where the NutriSystem Nourish program comes in. It outlines
exactly what and how much you should be eating, so there’s no more guesswork or risk of making bad choices. We designed it to help eliminate doubt and to ensure that while you’re losing weight, you’re also meeting all of your nutritional needs. It’s intended to create a level of body chemistry excellence that encourages weight loss—up to 6 to 13 pounds in just the first 2 weeks—by fostering hormonal blood sugar balance, which in turn maximizes your metabolism, increases your energy, lowers your stress, and supports your peace of mind. This plan works!
Through this program, you have a choice between cooking your own
dishes (you’ll learn to prepare healthy meals, and we have 75 delicious recipes in this book) and eating great-tasting NutriSystem prepared foods—or even enjoying whatever combination of the two works for you. You’ll find that this program fits beautifully into a busy lifestyle and jump-starts your body so that it starts burning fat more efficiently, which means more weight loss for you.
Your body chemistry is designed to thrive. That’s why successful weight
loss, sustained energy, and optimal well-being can all be attained by getting
the right amounts of vitamins, minerals, and nutrients. By following the
NutriSystem Nourish program that’s centered around good, solid nutrition,
weight loss is the natural progression.
You will learn to change the types of foods you’re eating to include more
whole foods and fewer processed foods. You will monitor your sugars and
unhealthy fats, and you’ll learn to make better carbohydrate choices.
