What is Nutrisystem?
I just started on NS. It limits total fat, saturated fat and cholesterol, and provides plenty of fiber, potassium, calcium and magnesium. You will save a good amount of money. Did anyone else have this problem? After one month and lost of 8 lbs, I saw how they balanced out the food and decided I could do the this on my own. It has taught me portion control which is what I needed.
Nutrisystem Reviews, Tips, Promotions
Shows that there was real lifestyle change for you guys! Very awesome and congrats! You have done such an amazing job on this diet. I want to lose about 20 pounds and you have me really wanting to try this diet. I gained probably 15 to 20 pounds over the past 3 or 4 months thanks to a trifecta of mega stress.
As your stomach has shrunk to help you… mine has grown to welcome way more food than is necessary. I think you guys learned a lifetime of lessons in that journey!
Way to conquer the transition! Your journey has been a joy to watch. Your email address will not be published. You may use these HTML tags and attributes: Here is our post-program update for month 2, including our weigh-in and thoughts: Still a way to go. But unfortunately that has resulted in minimal weight loss. Did you have plateaus like this? And how did you over come these stalls? I did just purchase an elliptical and also a stationary bike, but only on day 2 with those.
Your review was wonderful and very well written, so thank you! Hi Julie- Thank you so much for sharing your story, and way to go for making it through your first month! I think the calorie restriction is the hardest part about Nutrisystem, and why now I typically only do the diet for a month or two and then really focus on just eating right and getting enough exercise after that. For me, the approach after Nutrisystem has been intermittent fasting IF.
That said, I have had a lot of success with it, and find that I can maintain a healthy weight for long stretches of time when using it. I started with the turbo charge and continued now for almost 3 weeks. I have only lost 3 lbs. When I emailed a counselor they said that was normal and I was doing well. Big hope very disappointed. In any case, hope the rest of your month goes well, and best of luck moving forward. I just started Nutrisystem. I always lost weight on the low carb diet when I was younger.
But the fat intake was not good. Just to avoid all the carbs… Did you or anyone else have a issue with how many carbs are in each meal? Is this ok lol… Please someone assure me all the carbs are ok! Thanks for visting, and best of luck with your first month! Thanks for the excellent review and videos. Excited to see what kind of progress I can make. Hi Krystal — thanks for visiting the site, and taking the time to read my review and watch the videos.
Always happy to hear that it helped! Thanks for the great info and for sharing your story! Thanks for the kind words, June! Congrats on taking the first step and best of luck with Nutrisystem — hope it goes well!
I mastered more new things on this fat reduction issue. An enormous reduction in junk food, sugary foods, fried foods, sugary foods, beef, and white flour products may perhaps be necessary.
Holding wastes unwanted organisms, and wastes may prevent ambitions for fat-loss. While specific drugs for the short term solve the situation, the unpleasant side effects are certainly not worth it, plus they never present more than a short-term solution.
Many thanks sharing your thinking on this weblog. Thanks for the input Saul. Have you ever considered creating an ebook or guest authoring about Nutrisystem on other sites? I know my readers would appreciate your work. If you are even remotely interested, feel free to send me an email. Hi Lance — I actually do have an eBook in the works, so stay tuned for that! I just wanted to say that this post is awesome, well written and lots of useful Nutrisystem info. Looking forward to my first shipment.
Hi Corburt — Thanks for the kind words, and best of luck with your first month — hope it goes well! I just wanted to offer you a huge thumbs up for the great information you have right here on this post. I will be returning to your site for more soon! This blog looks exactly like my old one!
Great choice of colors! Really inspired by your story — thanks for sharing! I am planning to start Nutrisystem after the New Year. Hi Erin — Thanks so much for the positive feedback. The first time I ever used Nutrisytem, which was many years ago at this point, I think I was one it for 4 months. I had a lot more weight to lose then; now when I sign up, I usually use it for a month, maybe two at the most.
To lock in the auto delivery deal, you have to commit to two months, so if you hit your weight loss goals after month 1, I recommend switching your order to just the Turbo Shakes — that will ensure you lock in the most savings, and also helps to keep you on track once you start transitioning off the program. As I have said before, you have to be committed to the program to get results, but as long as you follow their plan you will lose weight!
Anyways, best of luck and please let us know how it goes: Thanks for sharing your story. Drinking over ounces and eating tons of leafy greens.
I did NS about 4 years ago lost almost This past July was told my chloerstral and blood pressure was too high for 28 year old. So black Friday I ordered when prices decreased. Hi Amanda — Thanks for visiting and reading my story. Hope it goes as well this time around.
Thanks for sharing your superb review. You have a lot of good info here. I am looking for a diet to try just after the new year, and this might be the one. Either way, appreciate all of the details you shared. Thanks, just what I was looking for. I have about 20 pounds to lose — is this doable in a month or two? Hi Sam — Thanks for the positive feedback. Losing 20 pounds is definitely doable with Nutrisystem, but I would budget at least two months.
I signed up for Nutrisystem this week, and I am really hoping that I have the same results. I think my first shipment should arrive just before Christmas, so think I will get started right after the holiday. Thanks so much for the review — definitely gives me hope!
Hi Kris — congrats on signing up — while results will vary for everyone, I truly believe that you will lose a lot of weight if you follow the program — so stick with it, and let us know how it goes. They try to rip you off when quit their auto delivery program. Very very unpleasant people to deal with. They shipped me stuff 3 days after I had already cancelled and had a confirmation number stating I cancelled.
They refused to turn the shipment around or to take it back and are trying to create some kind of lie that I created a 2nd account in November and they only cancelled one account.
The only thing I did in November was update my credit card expiration date which I regret. If I guaranteed no more shipments are coming to my name or my address that should be the end of the story, not with them! I am fighting them through my credit card company but please be aware of whatever traps they have in store for any of you.
Hi Troy — Sorry to hear that that was your experience. It was actually a customer service rep who told me I could switch from the meal delivery to just the Turbo Shakes after my first month on the program to lock in the auto-delivery savings without having to commit to another month of food.
In any case, I hope you are able to get things resolved! I started the program today, January 1st. My resolution is to feel better about myself, but do it in a healthy way that had structure. How much and when I should be eating vegetables, and ideas on what to eat if you have to attend a social function or business based meeting that involves food. Thanks for posting a well written, and information overview of this program. I have three questions and maybe one is a question for a NS counselor… 1.
Or can tomatoes, cukes, etc. Also, plain or with some sort of dressing? How many turbo shakes can you have per week… and when can they be consumed?
Thanks in advance …. Hi Tami — Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to comment! I always add extra veggies to my greens and have found the only thing you really need to watch out for is the salad dressing.
But for me, cucumbers, tomatoes, etc. I usually have my TurboShake midday — around 2: That said, I would definitely suggest using the Nutrisystem counseling service for full clarification, though — especially for questions 2 and 3. Best of luck if you decide to try the full program!
I wanted to say that this article is nicely written and included almost all the vital info I needed. Thanks for the review. I second your recommendation for Nutrisystem. Their service helped me significantly a few years ago. Hoping for the same results! Hi Maria — thanks for commenting! Hope it goes well again if you decide to give it another try. Have you found that Nutrisystem is a good way for keeping the weight off over the long term? How long do you really have to be on Nutrisystem before you starting seeing results?
Just finished month 1 and lost about 9 pounds! This post could not be written any better! Reading this post reminds me of my good old room mate! He was always trying new weight loss products. I will forward this page to him. Fairly certain he will have a good read. Thank you for sharing! I just read this well written post. I have a handicapped daughter who has gained so much weight.
We have tried everything with very little success. Think of your metabolism in the same way. If you eat smaller meals, more frequently, you are feeding your metabolism, but those big meals that restaurants serve and we, in turn, create, at home , those meals will completely stifle your metabolism and leave you feeing tired and lethargic.
Keep up the great work everyone. Hey Nellie, good question. As long as you keep eating small portions, keep your daily calorie count to the same as while you're on the diet and do not return to old bad eating habits like eating junk food or foods high in sugar, drinking soda etc you should not gain weight.
This diet is not just made to make you lose weight, it's designed to teach your body to get used to eating less and to teach your brain to be aware of what you're eating all the time — even when you're not dieting.
Bottom line is it's all on you from start to finish whether or not you lose weight and keep it off. Only you can choose what you eat and drink. Choose wisely and you'll surprise yourself in a nice way! Hey Candie, it's great to hear you're doing really well—32lbs in 2 months is awesome! And that you like the diet and you're fired up to maintain it to lose even more is really inspiring. Come back and give us an update sometime soon, please!
Had a very serious health issue and in ICU for 5 days. EVERY physician gave me the same comment—loose weight. I have been on many programs before with little success. Was up late one night and saw Marie O who looked super—so this fat boomer decided to give the program a try. Have been on program for about 2 months or so. Down from to today. I love the food—of course have some faves, but it works for me and hopefully will continue to on my road to loose another 50 pounds.
Hopefully I won't look like a prune but I will certainly be healthier! Hi Kavitha, thank you for your inquiry. This diet program only ships to United States addresses at present. I'm sorry it is not available internationally but I believe the additional shipping costs would make it very expensive and therefore not attractive to dieters in other countries around the world.
If I may offer some advice: I know that it can take some will power to follow a stricter eating regime, but when you firmly decide for yourself that you will do it because you want to do it, you can surprise yourself at what you are capable of!
I live in Kuwait. How do I get this product would like to know how much it cost to loose 20kg. Hey Marilyn, it's great to hear from you that you're off to such a great start. I agree that adding spices and herbs to the meals can improve the taste and tailor it to what you like to taste even! And yes, yes, yes My husband and I both started this diet, he needs to lose 40 pounds I need to lose !
Our first week he lost 12 pounds and I lost When hungry eat salad is what I tell my husband. He gets more snacks than I do but this to me is a very easy diet to follow. We planted a garden and makes it more fun to grow your own salads!
I think the trick is once you lose your weight to keep it off. But I hope we get to that problem! I talked my husband into doing the diet with me and to tell you the truth, I think it helps him to understand the struggle of sitting next to someone eating foods that you can't have when only one person is on a diet.
No matter what you do in life Hey Liz, Great to hear you're getting on with the diet so well, but gaining 7lbs in just over a week sure sounds strange. My first thought is water retention, which if that's the case could be caused by a sudden change in diet and usually dissipates after several days. It can be caused by increased fiber from the food holding fluid in the digestive tract which is released soon enough as the body gets used to the additional fiber in the diet.
Although it sounds odd, the best way to deal with water retention is to drink MORE water—at least eight or more 8oz glasses per day throughout the day ie not all at once. It helps flush the system and helps with digestion too.
If you don't start seeing a drop in weight after another week, my advice is to get in contact with a Nutrisystem counselor and talk it through with them. They have experts in-house that can help you, so DO make use if that service. You're paying for it as part of the program, after all! Good luck with your progress and I hope things go real well for you. I can say I love it.. I'm on the Diabetic Plan.
In the 4 days I've been on the plan I've gained 7 pounds. Please let me know whyyyyyyyyy I gained? Hey Beth, all comments are published, positive or negative as long as they are helpful in some way.
You're doing the right thing in talking to the counselor over any concerns—they're there to help after all! I'd add that you need to drink lots of water every day. Not just for this program, but for your health in any case, because it hydrates you and actually helps with healthy digestion and elimination as well as helping to normalize blood pressure.
About 8oz glasses per day is about right. Good luck and best wishes with your diet for a successful and happy outcome! This will absolutely be a lifesaver for me!
I love all these comments and I will be coming back here to read more! I am on my first week of NS This is my 3rd day. I felt really tired yesterday and chatted to the counselor today who added a couple things for me. I have not cheated at all but my blood pressure is going up some now which has me worried.
I saw where the program is under mg Sodium per day which should be ok. I will be talking to them more if this continues to be a problem. This program is helpful to me I am a comfort eater and eat with my computer or TV so I don't even think about how much I eat. This program thinks for me I am on the woman's basic vegetarian plan and have liked everything so far. I was sent some meat products accidentally in my first shipment but they corrected that quickly and I am being sent other products now.
The cost is high Way less expensive than medication, procedures, etc, if your health goes downhill! Thank you for this review and all of the comments that have followed. I am 85 pounds overweight and grieving the murder of my daughter has led me to 30 pounds of weight gain over the last 7 months.
I am hopeful that NS will be the answer that I have been looking for to increase my energy, self control and self confidence. Just started my 6th week of NS, 25 lbs. Now I plan to keep going for 2 more months until our anniversary Cancun vacation. NS has a program that allows me to pick and choose my favorites so I want to enjoy the food I like at smaller portions and learn to snack well.
Hopefully, I'll take better habits with me when I start buying replacement meals and home cooking with a newer portion-controlled mindset. Nutrisystem works for me. At times, I'm fully aware of my increased energy and motivation. Losing the desire to junk snack at night is a huge improvement. It is worth the money to spend a few months eating NS to lose weight and change my eating habits. The good news is that I still go out times per week to our favorite bars and restaurants.
Love a dirty martini, small appetizer, and seafood or salad combo much more than I did the fatty meals that were NOT worth the money! Hey Gail, don't feel discouraged—since Feb 15 its only just over 3 weeks and at the recommended rate of weight loss at 2lbs per week, you're actually right on track!
I know it's easy to get caught up in the big claims by some of the TV ad featured dieters of 30lbs or more, but the reality is those big numbers take several months to achieve in most cases. You could and should double that figure inside of two months if you stick with it and stay determined to succeed! I started the NS plan on February I haven't added veggies.
I don't feel super deprived likely because of my few side trips but I can't help but feel that I should have lost more weight. I should probably add that I am 48 and post menopausal — I do work out most days for min either a treadmill or Beach Body videos and I have three labradors who I walk most days they're not strollers!
Just feeling a little discouraged but I intend to finish out my second month. Hey RockyRose, it's great to hear you're enjoying the diet and having great success with it. In my experience, the people who always lost the most weight and kept it off are those that stuck stubbornly to their diet plan while politely but firmly ignoring any conflicting "advice" from friends or family.
Everyone naturally has an opinion and often its the wrong ones that derail people from their weight goals if they listen to and take them to heart. It's always the plan that get results when you stick with it, not those opinions! I've been on Nutrisystem for about two weeks, I'm down ten pounds. I love the program and I love that I'm sticking to it. I think the food is really good, there are a few items that I don't like so I just don't order them.
I hope I have good results with this program. I think the most important thing is making sure I stick to it. You should contact NS customer support for these kind of questions as they'll have the most accurate and correct answers rather than take someone else's opinion whether right or wrong. Can you drink coffee on Nutrisystem? When starting with the Turbo shakes, is it strictly shakes for the first week or using shake as 1 or 2 meal replacements?
Hey Lisa, thanks for the update. It's always real great to hear from you because you have such a great, positive attitude and you're proof that a can-do attitude brings success!
Just wanted to give an update! As for the meals, I think they taste great, all except 1 wasn't to my liking! I finished half of it and gave the rest to my unpicky dog! You do have to add in vegetables but that is fine I feel fuller! I absolutely love the turbo shakes and the nutricrush shakes wish I could drink those all day long!
Thanks for having this forum! And good luck to everyone! The Nutrisystem program i think is founded in good ideas. However i have a few complaints.
The food is mostly bland and has no real flavor. While portioned well, i still felt like i was lacking something I work out about times a week including playing hockey and it left me hungry. However the biggest and most annoying thing that really got on my nerves was after paying for the first month, i came to the determination that it was too expensive to continue. I'm sorry but that's completely absured! Yes i got a discounted price Which is the reason i would be charged but that's no excuse.
Thanks but no thanks. I'm very upset that they would treat their customers like this Additionally to cancel, i've been on hold And on the phone as i'm typing this waiting to talk to someone for nearly 30 minutes already Are they purposely trying to make it impossible for you to cancel?
Going back to Weight Watchers so i can eat food that tastes like food, and a system that I have had success with in the past. Hey guys, I get it you have differences of opinion and I'm a believer in everyone gets to say their piece. But unless you really have a genuine grievance with Nutrisystem itself, I don't want to read angry or hateful comments or arguments especially over what you see or don't see on TV. This is my site and while I let a lot of stuff go, I don't want it to turn into a free-for-all mud-throwing match.
Any future hateful or angry comments will get deleted. Hey John, congrats on losing 20 lbs by the way. That's the kinda thing I enjoy hearing about! Congrats to Nick S and Matt G too — that's some great going guys!
Wow, Martin you're some kinda troll. If you see so much of Marie's face on the network, man you're watching too much TV! As for me, I'm glad Marie's still doing it for Nutrisystem. God bless her, because it really helped me lose the 20 pounds I needed to lose through my previously bad diet not sitting on my lazy fat butt all day watching TV. I lost weight and reached a goal.
Man, unlike that other guy I'm happy, positive and thankful I found something that worked for me! I have been very pleased with the food personalized my plan selections and the only negative was that I was very gassy and some pretty painful stomach pains for a couple days during my second week.
I did experience constipation for the first week and very well could have made a mistake by eating more meals with higher fiber content to combat this which may have created the stomach pain.
I did take GasX which has solved the problem. My advice would be to stay strong, adhere to the plan and drink 8 to 10 16oz bottles of water per day. The results thus far have been amazing and I am well on my way to achieving my goals by the summer.
I've only done the first week and I've already dropped Now I'm a big guy, with a lot of weight to lose, but 13 pounds in one week? They only said I'd lose up to 10 the first month Hey Toni, I get where you're coming from and I say sure, go ahead and eat vegetables. They are super low in calories but high in nutrients that help the weight loss process. That's as long as they are fresh eaten raw is even better and not out of a can or a packet!
As to the hard boiled egg, I'm guessing if you ask Nutrisystem support you CAN and should , they'd say it's outside the plan. But personally, I'm a great believer in natural foods are always better than junk.
So if you're going to slip, it's better to do it with an egg instead of a pack of potato chips or a candy bar! I'm just beginning the Nutrisystem and I love it already. I'm currently on the 4th day of my Turbo 10 but I'm finding it a bit difficult.
I had one major question that I couldn't find the answer to anywhere; I think I know what the answer is but I want to confirm it. While doing the Turbo 10 can I have vegetables and protein when I'm getting hungry? I have been trying to stick whole-heartedly to the Turbo 10 but I have slipped up and had a hard boiled egg considered "powerfuel" and a half a cup of edamame vegetable.
Please let me know what you think. I'd appreciate any advice. Hey Lynette, that's an amazing story, congrats! You're right, it's all about achieving the body size you are meant to be—and can be through getting into the simple habit of right eating and sufficient exercise each day.
Just reading these comments and had to put my 2 cents: Keep going girl, you already lost 5 pounds you can lose another 5 and more. Just don't quit and do believe in yourself! I looked back at your comments and gotta say, your killing it girl woo yeah!
Baggy clothes are the coolest by-product of this diet! When I hear folks say they lost this or that pounds, I think to myself, that's cool. That's what we're doing this for. For US not for the bathroom scales! I love to hear people winning with their diet. I finished 3 months on Nutrisystem just before Christmas after I shrunk from a size 18 to a size 10!
All that fat was gone baby and my old clothes all looked like they were made for an elephant. I was so happy I threw a party for my friends to burn my old clothes in the yard and it was so amazing. It cost me all my meager savings to buy new clothes for this new small size body but I'm the happiest girl on my block for sure!
Oh yeah, one month later I'm still the same size and weight. I eat only fresh food that tastes great and drink plain water or herbal tea now. No more junk or soda and I feel and look totally amazing! I am on day Lost 5 lbs first several days and have not lost anything since.
Major plateau and very discouraging. I am going to stick with it another month. New delivery should be today. I have stuck to the plan. Not understanding how I'm not dropping weight. My breakfast used to be calories. Now I don't go over for the entire day for 1 month? Why am I not losing?
Hope someone can please answer me. Hi Dr Cook, Thank you so much for your words of encouragement they are appreciated. I posted it twice because I thought the first one wouldn't go through because my email address was wrong! Thanks for posting it! I am on day 4 and no soda at all! I haven't cheated once and I feel great! I can't wait to see how much weight I have lost at the end of the week! Hey Lisa, great to hear from you that you're starting with such a positive and determined attitude which is sure to get you to where you want to be.
I just saw you posted the same comment twice—I published the first one as you can see but the second is a duplicate and the system won't publish it I have safeguards to stop me accidentally publishing duplicate content to this blog. Anyway, good luck to you too and I wish you success! Hi, Sorry I just realized my email address was wrong when I sent my first reply. This is the correct one! Hi, First let me began by saying I am 45, 5'9 and weigh lbs.
I had weight loss surgery 3 years ago where my heaviest I weighed lbs and my lowest lbs. So after the surgery, 3 years later I have gained back a total of 30 lbs. I am addicted to McDonalds Cokes, I buy at least a day! Needless to say I am tired of being sluggish, overweight, jittery and grumpy! I knew I needed to first stop the soda period! So I did that and on the same day went to Walmart and purchased 2 of the Homestyle packs so I can try it for 10 days.
I just started on NS. I thought that I would have total withdrawals from having quit Soda cold turkey on day 1 but I have only had an occasional headache. I have had gas also but that is ok. I am not hungry at all thanks to eating the 6 small meals and also that my stomach doesn't hold that much anyways.
I do want to say that the food is actually very good at least all the ones I have had so far have been! I haven't weighed myself yet because I want to be surprised and weigh at the end of the week. This is really easy to follow. I haven't exercised at all but I plan on incorporating it into my schedule. Here is to a New Me in ! I am please with the plan so far. I lost 8lbs My first week, but I think a lot was fluid from eating so much bad food before. The first days was the hardest but I like the fact that I don't have to cook it and weigh it and count calories and figure all that out.
I do not want to have to do a meal plan, I do not have time for that. I can make my family a nice dinner and still have the veggies with them and I heat mine up and we can sit all down together without me having to figure out what can I make for them that I can eat.
I did the QVC deal and got the plan for less than what it would cost me to do smart ones or lean cuisine. This is delivered to my door and for an entire month. I don't even have to shop for it. You can not beat that. The food is not the greatest but what microwave meal is. It is not the worst I have had and I am so excited over this, I feel amazing and look forward to be a long time customer.
I have now lost 8. I love green beans.. I still have 13lbs I am wanting to lose Are you allowed Coffee on Nutrisystem?
I use to drink decafe coffee. I did use truvia and skim milk when I used to drink it.. I do not drink any soda at all Just want to lose the lbs.. Thanks for the encouragement, anything that will help me stay on track. Hey Faye, that was a big drop in weight those first 5 days. A possible answer is that much of that could have been excess water weight, because believe it or not when you start to drink lots of water the body actually releases excess stored water.
It all depends on how much water weight you were carrying to begin with as it can vary a lot between people. But in any case, don't feel discouraged.
It's early days into diet and your body is just balancing itself out. The pounds will continue to fall more steadily as you continue with the plan. Remember, most expert agree you should expect pounds lost per week on a low calorie diet like Nutrisystem and this is a reasonable average.
Stay determined and positive and good luck with achieving your goals. I started the program and the first 5 days I lost 7. Hey Dolly, I'm so glad you're succeeding so amazingly well and have such a positive attitude toward the program. Yes, I changed the ads since Nutrisystem have started their new promotion for already, so I had to include their new offers in my review so new visitors will get the latest information. Congrats and keep on keeping on! Hi Dr Cook, I read this review a month ago and signed up for the core womens plan.
I can't thank you enough for pointing me at Nutrisystem! I have already lost 14 pounds and ordered my second month. The food is much better than I expected from hearing some of the very negative commenters said about it. I felt a bit hungry the first few days, but I told myself it was my body telling me it was using up excess fat to make me smaller and lighter.
And it really was! After those first few days, I had no hunger issues at all and felt great. Better than great — I have so much energy now that I never had before. I really appreciate the depth of information you provide here and I noticed you changed the ads and some of the info from Fast 5 to Turbo 10 since I last looked in.
That looks real interesting but you know I will stick with my plan because it works for me and that's all I need. Good luck and best wishes to all the others who are on this diet program!
Hey Rebecca, it's always great to hear from folks that are doing this with a positive attitude and real determination to succeed like you guys. All I can say is you're going the right way and just stick with the plan and you'll be wearing even smaller size pants before you know it!
I am one week shy of a month on the program. My fiance and I are doing it together as we have gained weight together over the past two years. We are both in the lbs range. She loves it and finds it easy to stick with. I have a harder time feeling full, but I am learning to work through that.
It is nice to have the food all right there and quick. I can cook, and cook well, however we don't always have the time to cook well. If I got home tired we'd go out. If we hadn't been grocery shopping, we'd go out or grab a quick bag of chips. So having everything quick and easy is a great thing for both of us and makes it easier to behave.
The food it hit or miss, but it is generally not THAT bad. There have only been one or two items like the doughnut that were horrible. Most of the food is pretty good and some of it I absolutely love.
I can tell you that my size 26 pants are loose and my size 24's are starting to fit better. My fiance's pants are fitting her better as well. So far, we love it. We buy canned veggies on sale to add to the dinners. The cost is high, but compared to our previous eating out, we are still saving money.
We will definitely continue, probably for 6 months to a year. We have a lot of weight to lose. I hear many saying that this program is not teaching you how to eat right, but it IS. Portion control is one of my biggest problems. My body is learning the full triggers and eating 6 times a day helps my body process things.
Gaining weight off program will happen if I do not keep the portions down and frequent. You cannot go back to eating three large meals a day. Love the hunger feeling But I have only lost 2. I will give it a couple more days. If I don't lose any more. I will return all their food and want my money back. I hope they don't give me a hard time for that.
My goal was to lose 15 lbs. This is my 4th time. It has come a long way from the 80s when you used to have to go to a weekly meeting and talk with a counselor and listen to speeches and pick your food out from racks in a warehouse like setting. Each time I've done it, I lost successfully except the last year but that was my fault. I only did a 5 day plan and then went whole-hog on the weekends. I'm back on it and now sticking to it on most weekends, not all. It'll just take me more time to lose, but that's fine with me.
I'd rather live and enjoy myself when I go out and not worry about dieting cause I know I'll get back to it when I can. The food now is fantastic compared to what it used to be, especially the frozen. I don't find much of anything I don't like.
And if I do, I just don't order it again. If you are a picky eater to start with, well then, yah, you'll have a hard time with it. So far all I lost was 5 pounds, but its so amazing how different I feel.
I don't care what I look like. I care about how I feel! Bending over trying to put shoes on isn't a chore anymore with a fat belly in the way. Just want to say — this was the easiest, fastest way I ever tried to lose weight!
Just as the commercial says "eat the food, lose the weight! As you diet, you begin to relearn how to eat, so I did not even need the transition info. I still buy the shake because they are great mid-morning to squash hunger until lunch.
And the payoff is amazing! I have received so many compliments and queries about the program, and I can't say enough good about it!! I'm 58 years old and 5'2". I have never been one to lose weight very fast and as such, I usually get discouraged and get the ol "I don't care" attitude.
Especially after losing quite a bit of weight and then struggling up and down with the same poundage for the past several years. But the convenience of NS has been a life changer for me as it gain me the extra something something I needed to stick it out.
I have currently lost The nice thing about NS, if you don't like a item, just don't order it the next month. My husband says this is the first time he has seen me stick to something for this long. I've got about 30 pounds to go!
It's so good to hear from someone that knows the truth and isn't afraid to write it down! I have to try and be diplomatic when answering some of the worst complainers since this is my site. But it can be frustrating at times when you get people that really just don't get it that they're the ones with the problem, not the diet. Congrats on going into this with the right attitude and proving to the naysayers that it works It's always good to hear!
My mom did the Nutrisystem diet back in the late 80s, after giving birth to me a few years prior, and lost all of her baby weight. She did it for 3 months. She told me that the first month was "okay" but that by the end of her 2nd month, she had lost almost all of her baby weight but also had so much more energy, which gave her the motivation to start running again. I wish I could post a screen cap of her text saying this so people would know it's real lol.
By the end of her 3rd month, she said she had lost ALL of her baby weight plus a few more pounds.
