Hi! Just started today and I'm looking to get tips from other people who are constantly on the go..

A little about my life. I'm kind of a Jekyll & Hyde by day a quite mild mannered office manager and by night I own/run a night club. I'm also the mother of a teenage boy and the wife of a man who often acts like a teenage boy!.

Thankfully the office job is part time so that helps a little but most days I'm in bed at 3 AM and up by 6:30 or 7 AM. This is the only time in my life that I've been thankful for insomnia..

Getting to my point, my eating times have always been what most would consider odd hours. I'm more of a grazer since my days tend to be so long I've always nibbled through out the day and often very late at night..

Basically, anyone have any advice or input about obstacles they've had to overcome in such scenarios?.

Your question was: Tips on doing Nutrisystem diet for busy people?.

You can spread your foods out throughout the day (for example eat the breakfast entree after you get up and then the protein and fruit an hour or two later). The only hard and fast rule here is that you have to eat all the food (including add-ins) that is listed for your meal plan. It's also a good idea to eat fruit with a protein/dairy to avoid a jump in blood sugar (and insulin)...

I agree with the grazing. I travel a lot for work and work long hours. I eat pretty much all day long. I start with my Nutrisystem breakfast and a fruit. About an hour to 2 later I'll have my protein. Then in another hour I start in on 1 cup of baby carrots, etc., etc.

Don't forget to fit in your water too..

Another thing you can do is keep a bar with you in your bag in case you can't get to your add ins. You can move your food around throughout the day to work with your schedule..

And if you get in a jam (and I wouldn't do this often) my Nutrisystem counselor told me you can replace your afternoon snack with a Nutrisystem dessert/snack. You'll have extra calories but if you are in a jam this might help..

Good luck! With a bit of planning you CAN make this work...

Thanks for the input On day 3 and so far I've had a little trouble fitting in all the food but I'm managing. I'm sure (hope) that with time it will get easier..

Jenni: I do the same thing using a soft side cooler I got at WalMart. I pack it the night before with an ice pack; change out the pack in the morning and off to work I go. When I run out of food, I am done eating for the day. Mostly I have trouble eating all the food for the day..

You CAN do it!.
