The Problem With Popular Weight Loss Programs

It is still the beginning of the year and many of you are still enthusiastic about living a healthy lifestyle.  Whether your New Year’s Resolution is to drink less coffee and alcohol, exercise more, be less stressed, eat healthier or lose weight.  Losing weight and eating healthier are the most popular resolutions and many people turn to Jenny Craig, Weight Watchers and Nutri-System to help them with their goals.

Sorry to say it, but Weight Watcher’s, Jenny Craig and Nutri-System are just like a fad diet, you go on them, lose weight and as soon as you stop you gain the weight back.  They do not promote healthy eating, they count calories.  It doesn’t matter what the calorie is because a calorie is a calorie to them.  Do you know that Weight Watcher’s promotes McDonald’s food?  They will soon have their logo on certain items.  It’s okay to eat that Fish Filet or box of Chicken McNuggets and wash it down with a Diet Coke because it only counts as a certain number of points.  If you are under your allotted number of points for the day, you are doing great (according to WW)!

Nutri-System food is extremely processed.  The food choices and the ingredients in these foods are appalling.  Breakfast choices include donuts, muffins, cinnamon buns, scones, french toast, granola bars, and pancakes.  The blueberry muffin ingredients alone is almost half the length of this blog.  They do have 4 egg choices, but after looking at  the ingredients, can you really call it an egg?

Jenny Craig had a recent poll on their facebook page, what is your favorite ‘Jenny Snack’.  The top picks were: Triple Chocolate Cheesecake, Key Lime Pie and Brownies.  Enough said.

Nourishing Self can help stop the yo-yo dieting and weight fluctuation that goes along with these diets.  Nourishing Self doesn’t believe in counting calories, doesn’t put clients on a low calorie diet and doesn’t think that all calories are created equal.  Nourishing Self does believe in helping clients by incorporating healthy whole foods and making lifestyle changes that they can use now and throughout their life.

If you are thinking about joining Jenny Craig, Nutri-System, Weight Watchers or have belonged in the past and not seen the results you would like, call for a free 15 minute phone or in person consultation.  Why waste your money on something that is not going to help you out in the long run.  Nourishing Self can help you reach your goals and make changes that will positively effect the rest of your life.
