Your question was: Do you count calories while on Nutrisystem?.
Sounds like you are referring to erroneous/outdated info.
Which plan are you on?..
No one ever got overweight from eating an apple that was a little too big You're losing, relax and enjoy it...
If you are following the plan you don't need to count calories. On the other hand counting calories comes in very handy when you get to maintenace so if you are use to doing it I would continue since you do not have that much weight to lose!.
Check out www.thedailyplate.com to keep track of your calories. They have a large database of foods (NS foods too)!..
I feel too like the calories are unbalanced.....i have increased my exercise to 3-5 miles of walking/day and am eating the food appropriately but have not lost the 1-2#/week they say I will.....i don't worry too much about the veggie calories because all of the ones I eat have a very low or 0 Glycemic Index. and the fruits I eat also have a low GI, bananas have the highest with a 12. if you look at the packaged meals the %protein and number of calories really varies so I guess one has to select the meals in a way to keep the daily calorie count lower. but with all the exercise I am getting, I have not felt that is necessary and yet, since I started on 16 April I have lost only 4#..
4 pounds in three weeks IS between 1 - 2 pounds a week..
Don't worry, you're doing fine. The loss happens at your pace. Follow the plan and it works...
Thanks everyone. I think you're right, I need to chill out a little and not worry too much about a few extra baby carrots or the size of my apple.
When you enter food intake on the Nutrisystem calorie intake log, a cup of raw carrots is 25 calories...
If you're worried about calories in fruits and veggies, use a site like calorieking.com to find the calories by weight and weigh what you're eating..
However, if you're losing, don't sweat it...
