How Much Protein Do You Take In Or Eat Each Day On The Nutrisystem Diet?
Some people who contact me about Nutrisystem know (or have read) that it's a diet that consists of a relatively high amount of protein and a relatively low amount of carbs. This is true even when you get to eat comfort and snack foods as well as sweet tasting desserts. So, some people are skeptical of these ratios and claims and want to know how much protein you really take in or eat each day on Nutrisystem.
This is going to vary depending on the Nutrisystem foods that you chose as well as which side items you chose to add in on your own. But, I can give you some idea of this by taking three random days of the diet's meals and averaging the daily protein amount. I will do this below.
Day One Protein Example: To keep things simple, I will place the amount of protein for each meal in parenthesis after that meal. For breakfast, I've chosen the very popular and highly rated blueberry pancakes (5 grams of protein,) the roasted vegetable pizza for lunch (8,) and the roast turkey for dinner (18.) You are asked to have a Nutrisystem snack and dessert each day so I've chosen the buttered popcorn (4) and the carrot cake (5.) My grand total of protein (before I add in any side items) is 40 grams. However, they ask you to add in a healthy side for each meal. So I might add milk to breakfast, carrots to lunch, and tomatoes for dinner. This would likely give me a good amount of additional protein on that day.
Day Two Protein Example: For the next day, I'll choose a ham and cheese omelet for breakfast (13,) a turkey hotdog for lunch (5,) and the chicken enchilada for dinner (17.) I'll choose the herb snack mix for my snack (6) and the peppermint cookie patty for dessert (6.) This gives me a total of 46 grams of protein for the day - but that is before I add in my sides for each meal. So I might add in fruit for breakfast, raisins for lunch, and a salad for dinner. These sides would bump up my protein total.
Day Three Example: For day 3, I'll pick apple cinnamon oatmeal (4) for breakfast, a meatball melt for lunch (11,) and meat lasagna for dinner (18.) My snack will be cheese puffs (8) and my dessert will be a frozen caramel sundae (3.) My total grams of protein on this day before I add in my sides is 44.
The Three Day Average: So my daily average of protein over these three days (without factoring in the sides) was 43 grams. Now as I said, this isn't a complete number because you would be taking in more protein and the amount would depend upon the sides that you chose. But it's probably safe to say that you'd likely be taking in at least 9 -15 more grams of protein or more per day, again depending on what you chose.
How Much Protein Is Recommended For Weight Loss? Is This A Healthy Or Advisable Amount?: The Institute of Health's dietary reference intake recommendations allow for a protein intake from 10 - 35% of the calories that you take in and many believe that taking in high amounts of protein contribute to weight loss. Considering that most people take in around 1200 -1500 calories per day on Nutrisystem, these protein levels are right in line with the higher end of that range. Some very stringent high protein diets include even more or higher amounts, but I personally feel that Nutrisystem keeps their ratios safe but effective.
