Some folks want to take full advantage of this and they wonder if they can eat an unlimited amounts of fruits. I find that not surprisingly, more people ask about eating the fruits than the vegetables. I heard from someone who said: But I am wondering if I will be able to eat a lot of fruits. But I am wondering if there are going to be limitations on how much I am able to eat. I find that there is sometimes confusion about unlimited fruits and vegetables on this diet.
Many non starchy vegetables ARE unlimited, but only those that are low on the glycemic index. Examples are tomatoes, asparagus, and broccoli.
You may already know this, but nutrisystem encourages and provides foods that are glycemic friendly, meaning that they are lower in starches and carbohydrates in order to keep you feeling full and to keep your blood sugar steady. You are encouraged to eat more foods that are glycemic friendly and less foods that are not. That is why fruits are not unlimited.
They tend to be higher in natural sugars. For example, an apple can have over 25 grams of sugars, although these sugars are more beneficial than the processed kind because they are easily converted to energy. I heard from someone who said: I love sweet peas. I freeze them and pop them in my mouth like candy. Is this going to be allowed on this diet? That is what they are they for and they are more than happy to help.
They are classified as starchy and non starchy. And you are asked to consume 2 smart carbs per day. And, if you look at the grocery guidelines, you will see that they also tell you the serving size of each.
For example, both black and white beans fall under this category and the suggested serving size is one half cup each. So if this woman was a huge fan of these type of beans, in an ideal world, she would limit herself to that amount twice per day. However, looking at that non starchy vegetable list, sweet peas are on this list. So, they are considered to be a true vegetable rather than a carbohydrate.
The minimum amount of vegetable servings that they want for you to have is four per day. Most people will eat two at lunch and two at dinner.
Now, right on the guidelines, it says that many vegetables are unlimited.
