Gift cards for clothing or iTunes is nothing new in the world of holiday presents, but gift cards for healthy living? Now that’s a novel and refreshing gift idea.
Weight loss giant NutriSystem has just launched NutriSystem gift cards, a perfect and healthy way to encourage someone you love to lead a healthy lifestyle.
Here is how NutriSystem gift cards work: Purchase a gift card in any dollar amount from $10 to $500 and give it to someone who is new to NutriSystem, an existing member or someone who simply wants to sample the NutriSystem line of portion-controlled meals and snacks. Unlike most gift cards, which expire after a certain amount of time, these gift cards have no expiration date and they don’t contain any hidden fees or service charges. Chances are, when you give the gift of health, especially around the New Year, a NutriSystem gift card is likely to get cashed in pretty quickly. (more…)
So we’re just a bit over a week into 2008 and for many of you, maybe you are still trying to choose the right nutrition plan that will suit your lifestyle needs while it helps you to shed those extra pounds. One of the latest diets that is receiving a lot of attention this new year is The NEW NutriSystem Advanced program. It’s similar to its older sister, the standard NutriSystem program, in that you have a few different plans to choose from, you’ll receive a supply of NutriSystem food each month and you are required to clock in some exercise hours.
The difference in the Advanced plan is the inclusion of adding omega-3 fatty acids and natural fibers to its meals and snacks. The omega-3 fatty acids have been garnering attention in the medical world for its supposed protective heart healthy benefits and fiber helps us feel full longer and keeps our digestive tract working effectively.
The nice thing about the Advanced program is that it doesn’t require that you fast on some liquid concoction for 8 days and it doesn’t make you swallow a handful of caffeine-filled pills each morning in an effort to ward off hunger. The program is built on a practical common sense approach to weight loss: Eat meals and snacks throughout the day that are moderately proportioned and balanced in their caloric and fat contents. Add in some heart-pumping exercise on most days of the week and you’ll hopefully see that number on the scale start to dip.
