The Nutrisystem Diet

Nutrisystem Women's Basic Plan Reviews


I'm happy and so is my doctor who was telling me I needed to lose weight. Nutrisystem has helped me so much with the eating part of that. I love some of them, like most of them and only disliked one or two items out of the whole menu. The foods are not drab and boring like with Medifast which I tried last year. I have 65 more to go to reach my goal weight. It comes with diet tools that are easy to use and awesome tasting foods albiet frozen.

The Promise


You can break this up into three minute periods throughout the day. There are meal plans for vegetarians and people with diabetes. But the program does not have plans for people following a vegan diet. And it doesn't allow for certain food allergies including soy or peanut allergies , and it's not gluten-free. The cost varies based on things like the plan you choose -- such as for women or men, vegetarians, older adults, or people with diabetes.

The program has an online community and web-based tools, as well as help by phone. You may face a challenge when you go off the program and have to make more food choices on your own. The program provides information on how to do this. Controlling calories and portions and eating regular meals is a healthy formula that should result in weight loss while on the plan.

It can be harder to make the transition to eating "real food" when you get closer to your weight-loss goal and don't rely on meals already made for you. Overall the diet is healthy for people with conditions like heart disease , high blood pressure , high cholesterol , and diabetes. Meals are low in sodium, saturated fats , and trans fats , and include high-fiber whole grains, smart carbs, healthy fats , lean protein, and a wide variety of foods.

The Nutrisystem diet is the ultimate in convenience. The real question is whether you can continue to lose weight or maintain your weight when you are no longer relying on the prepackaged foods.

The Promise Nutrisystem aims to simplify weight loss. You're discouraged from eating out, and advised to mostly avoid alcohol. For desserts and snacks, you might have brownies, cake, or cookies. Overall, the foods and meal plans focus on: Packaged foods or meals: Is It Good for Certain Conditions?

If you have a medical condition, be sure to talk to your doctor before starting the program. The Final Word The Nutrisystem diet is the ultimate in convenience. If you like to cook or eat out, or you have a tight food budget, this plan is not for you. I love that I can eat three times a day with snacks, and I have such a nice variety of foods to eat. My favorite things are the muffins; I always tried to stay away from them before Nutrisystem, but now I can eat a Nutrisystem muffin without any guilt: The other reason this program is so great is that now that I can control my food intake, I can also start working on my exercise routine.

I love being able to track it online after each time I go for a walk or go to an aerobics class. I love the breakfasts and lunches, but have trouble with some of their dinner entrées.

I have been using Nutrisystem for three weeks now and have lost a total of seven pounds, which is something that I am really proud of. Nutrisystem has definitely helped me with eating the right kinds of food and controlling how much I eat.

I love the food at breakfast and lunch, but dinner is a little tough. The cereals and muffins that I can get for breakfast are great. The soups for lunch are fabulous, as are the pasta dishes. However, dinner is another story. The Homestyle Beef has been my least favorite so far. I guess that is what is so good about the plan; I can change what I eat if I find something that I really dislike. Nutrisystem has helped me so much with the eating part of that. The food tastes really great, and never once have I felt like I needed to eat something else after I have finished one of their entrées.

I especially love the pasta dinner dishes. I feel like I can now eat pasta without feeling guilty; which is a nice change. That really has helped me a lot. The part I wish were different with Nutrisystem is the exercise portion. I know that I can enter my exercise online, but I wish there were some more specific guidelines as to how much I need to exercise.

In the past, I always stayed away from things like muffins, granola bars, and pasta because I figured it would be too many calories. With Nutrisystem, I can have ravioli for dinner and feel like I had a real treat. I feel like the Nutrisystem meals are a splurge enough! This has been really helpful in keeping me on track when my family goes out to eat.

As a working mom, sometimes fast food is the only way dinner is going to happen, and the Nutrisystem Restaurant Guide has kept me on track on those nights. I have been a chronic skipper of breakfast most of my adult life. After Nutrisystem, I am sold on eating breakfast for weight loss. I absolutely adore their muffins and cereals. I am convinced that these delicious breakfast foods are helping me lose the weight that I have always wanted to lose.

The Double Chocolate Muffins are my absolute favorite. The other really great thing about this plan is the Restaurant Guide. I have lost a total of 25 pounds on the Nutrisystem diet. I know that should make me give them 5 stars, but I have to be honest. I do not like the snacks that I have tried, especially the soy chips. I think they taste like paper. That said, I do really like the meals, especially the breakfast choices. The muffins and granola bars taste really good.

So do the cereals. The lunches are pretty good, but I absolutely love the pasta dishes for dinner. I am really happy with the weight loss, and this plan has, by far, been the easiest plan to implement. I feel full after I eat, and this is the first weight loss program where I have felt like that.

I am not one for exercise, so the weight loss plans where they say you have to exercise 5 times a week really turn me off. I know that Nutrisystem encourages exercise, but in two weeks I have lost 5 pounds without exercising at all.

The food plan is so incredibly easy. I love that I just open up the boxes, and there is my food, ready for me to eat without having to cook or shop. I am so happy to have someone else decide the details of what I should eat, but that I still have choices. I also am thrilled that I am losing weight without having to exercise at all. Nutrisystem is the easiest weight loss system out there. I am so happy with how it is working for me.

I think I can really meet that initial goal that I set for myself. I ordered my first round of Nutrisystem meals so that I could get them and start on January 1st. I am so happy with the results, because only two week into the plan, I have already lost six pounds. I am single, and it is much easier to just go through a drive-thru window for fast food than it is to cook for one person. The lunches and dinners are the very best thing about this plan.

The food tastes so great. I absolutely love the Hearty Beef Stew because it reminds me of the stew my mom used to make for me when I was a kid. And I adore the Macaroni and Cheese as well. I have lost three pounds, which I am thrilled about. However, I walk around really hungry! The problem is, it tastes so good that I want more of it. The Thick Crust Pizza tastes amazing. So does the Sweet and Sour Chicken. I am told that this will get easier soon because eating less than I am used to eating will make my stomach shrink.

I think the Restaurant Guide will be helpful once I get over my portion control issue. I guess part of losing weight is feeling hungry, but that is not something I am used to. I still lost weight! I have lost about ten pounds so far. I feel like it should be a little more than that, but have you ever heard of someone losing ten pounds during the holidays? And honestly, I probably ate too much on my free days. I am a true Nutrisystem fan!

I have been doing Weight Watchers for years with my friend. As she says, once all of your points are gone on Weight Watchers, you get to eat your spit for dinner! Well, my friend got really sick of doing the point thing, so she switched to Nutrisystem.

My friend lost four pounds the first week and three pounds the second week on Nutrisystem. Once I heard about her success, I decided to switch, too. I am so excited! I feel like a new person and I get compliments on how I look all of the time.

I get all of my meals prepared for me, planned for me, and best of all, they taste great. Nutrisystem has that all figured out for you. Nutrisystem is giving me time back because everything is completely planned out.

I have around 50 pounds to lose, so I figure two pounds a week is a pretty good rate. I really do like a lot of the food they deliver. The Chicken Pasta Parmesan is my favorite dinner meal so far.

All of the soups are great, but I really love the Chicken Salad. I also think that the breakfast choices and dessert options are really helping me to stick to the diet. I just finished two weeks on Nutrisystem. Nutrisystem was my last resort! I figured if I spent the money for the food, maybe I would actually stick to the plan and lose some weight. Maybe I can get a sandwich at a restaurant next week!
