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. It doesn't cost much, but you don't get as much support as with Weight Watchers or eDiets. Best of luck — Norm. It would be a good fit for someone who is familiar with using a computer and prefers the autonomy and anonymity that computer discussions provide for support. Hi Ginny, We are sorry to hear about the spoiled and stale items you received. I honestly didn't count how many items I threw awayat their prices ANY wasted product is too many!
What You Get For Your Money
I personally like the egg fritatta for breakfast, but the wedge potatoes and beef steak is basically bland crockpot food. And the hamburger patty was practically inedible but the nutrichocolates are yummy. I did Weight Watchers before and had much better luck with preparing my own meals and deciding what I wanted to eat each day.
The food is just gross. The NS diet does work. Anyone who says they are gaining weight are NOT following the diet. If you do some research, you will see that the sodium levels are less than the daily recommended levels.
I have been on the diet for 2 weeks and lost 4 each week. You have to exercise with the program, just like any other diet. I have been on Nutrisystem for 3 months and have lost 26lbs, i like the food and it is very convenient to take to work, the diet does not work without the excerise along with it.
I have been on Ntrisystem now for 11 days. The first week I was hungry but I expected that. If you expect to lose weight you will have to cut down the number of calories you consume. I know I was consuming way to many. As you get older you need to consume even less and also increase your exercise.
The food quality varies but I have not had prolems eating anything. It is very convenient. I follow the program exactly and add in all of the foods they recommend. I have even eaten out 2 times! So far so good for me and I will continue as I have over 50 to lose.. Unless you plan on eating this food for the rest of your life!!!
And my goal to lose is 30 lbs. I think the food is good. This is a diet people! The food comes with a complete book on what else you can eat in addition to the pre-packaged foods.
I just started this diet 1 week ago. I was on the Medi-Fast Diet and they give you a book on the program. There were instructions on how to substitute food, exercise and how to go off the diet successfully.
I decided to try Nutrisystem as I got tired of the same Medi-Fast food. Nutrisystem needs to do the same. Give us a book of instructions!. So far I have only gained weight. The food was completely awful. I had horrible stomach cramps and the snacks were overly salty.
Too much soy soy can change estrogen levels in women. Customer service was a joke. I do not recommend this diet at all. Save your money and buy locally grown fresh food. I lost over 50lbs on NutriSystem. The food was not horrible at the time, but it is hard to maintain that weight loss once I was off the program like any diet I guess. I would recommend it for anyone who does not have time to prepare healthy meals for themselves.
I tried to restart the program after I gained some weight back though, and I couldnt bring myself to eat the food again. Eat all the green vegtables and red meat you can. Then add store bought frozen meals and create your own diet. It is cheap and healthy. I did it and lost 32 lbs the first month! This diet is great i love it and it works for me perfectly.
I have been on this diet for 3 weeks and have lost 19 pounds. I lost over 90 pounds on Nutrisystem in less than a year. I am on my second week of NutriSystem and I have to say most of the food is horrible. 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: To be clear, this means that 5 days out of the week, customers stick to Nutrisystem foods and then on the other 2 days, called "flex days," they prepare their own meals. Remember, only the more expensive "Uniquely Yours" plan contains frozen meals one per day.
The other plans are "shelf-stable" food only. The problem with auto-delivery is that if you want to cancel before the second month, you will likely be stuck paying substantial penalties. If you sign up under the Uniquely Yours plan and choose Weekends My Way, then your delivery will include frozen food items as well 28 frozen meals for the 4 week period. Listed below are all the current Nutrisystem plans, along with their prices and what they include. The women's plans are listed first, followed by the men's plans.
Auto-Delivery commits you for more than one month. There is a major penalty for cancellation of Auto Delivery. Scroll to the bottom of this page for details. The Men's plans contain one more snack per day than the Women's Plans. Each of Nutrisystem's plans gives dieters the option of ordering with or without monthly Auto Delivery. The upside of Auto Delivery is that it gives you a discount on the overall price. Nutrisystem has made the discount so large, that most people find they have no choice but to order the Auto Delivery option.
With the auto-delivery option, you have only 2 weeks to ask for a full refund. If you cancel within the first 14 days, you can return the remaining food for a refund, minus the shipping costs.
