Sometimes I hear from people wondering how the Nutrisystem diet will fit into their busy lifestyles that involve many trips. Many are worried that they will not be able to stay in compliance when traveling. And some travel long enough for work or as part of their lifestyle. I heard someone say, "I travel 2 weeks every month for my job. I really want to try Nutrisystem but I'm not sure if it will be possible with all my trips. If I have to go out of diet when I'm traveling, I'm not sure if I lose weight. "
I really do believe that you might lose some weight if you did get out of the diet. After all, people on the flexible plan take off two days out of every week and many of them do very well with their weight loss. However, I also believe that you can stay in the diet and comply, even if you have to travel or even if you want to go on holiday. The reason is that many of the meals do not require preparation. And those that sometimes only need hot water, which is usually readily available. Most Nutrisystem foods are packaged so that they do not take up too much space or can be found flat. So it would not be too difficult to travel with your food.
To show what I mean, I'll look at one day's meals and what it will take to prepare them. For breakfast, you could have the chocolate worm that does not require preparation. Lunch could be fettuccine alfredo which requires nothing more than a little warm water. A good snack may be the buns that only require the wrapper to be removed. Dinner could be mac and cheese with beef that also requires only water. An example of a good dessert might be a peanut butter cookie that has already been made for you.
In short, it wouldn't be too difficult to plan and then pack enough food for the whole trip. If you choose carefully prepared meals, you should not need more than access to hot water to prepare your meals. Many parts have water coolers that provide both hot and cold water. And access to a microwave is often quite easy in most travel hotels. In short, traveling or staying on a holiday with nutrisystem is not really that difficult in my opinion and experience. Alternatively, some people will adopt a program similar to the flex plan, where they allow themselves to take a few meals away while traveling to give themselves some flexibility.
