Nutrisystem ads claim lose 5 pounds in one week. What is actually being lost: fat, water, or muscle tissue?

Nutrisystem ads claim lose 5 pounds in one week.  What is actually being lost: fat, water, or muscle tissue?

Weight loss claims: When one of the thousands of weight loss products puts out an ad claiming a patient will lose 5 or more pounds in one week, a doctor usually thinks "pounds sterling" or "British pounds", as in money.

NoneBestLearnReality: Despite all the commercials, they are not selling health but convenience ; reduced quantities, for a price! none of them have done large clinical trials (exempted by dshea act 1994) to evaluate their efficacy; instead hiring well-paid "celebrities" to sell their wares. While they do occasionally work for some, none have any long term success. Best study issues yourself ; learn what works for you! ...Read more

What are some healthy lunches you can grab from the grocery store besides frozen lean cuisines?

Fresh foods: A good lunch is lean proteins such as fish, turkey or chicken, mixed with greens at the salad bar. Another good choice is a black bean or quinoa salad with added vegetables, or almond butter on apple slices. Salads are healthful when high-fat additions such as cheese and oil are limited.

Will this help me lose weight? Eat 6 small lean cuisines or meals per day.

Will this help me lose weight? Eat 6 small lean cuisines or meals per day.

Depends on calories: Most lean cuisine meals are about 300 calories a piece, so 6 a day would be 1800 calories. Depending on your size, age, and gender you have a resting metabolic rate which burns some calories (for a 150 lb person about 1400 a day) and if you exercise you could end up burning 300 to 400 more so that would mean you would just burn slightly more than you take in. Try myplate.Gov for good advice. ...Read more

Recently ate a recalled lean cuisine the night before the recall for possible glass. How would I know if I unknowingly ingest the glass two days ago?

Bleeding: Blood in the stool if the glass were to injure the GI tract Glass could potentially damage the upper respiratory tract, such as causing a laceration in the throat. That might cause sore throat and coughing up blood. If you are 2 days out with no problems I wouldn't worry. Glass is inert and will not be absorbed by the body. There is no 100% in medicine, but I think you will be fine. ...Read more
