That said, some of the most common bad Nutrisystem reviews revolve around the difficulty of the system. Basically, people can’t customize their orders according to their taste. Even though the option is there, they can’t make it work for them.
Hey Suelesh (I removed your email to preserve your privacy), A lot of the process for losing weight is mental as it is physical and those foods are a big problem for diabetics, but many still crave them. To answer your question, according to Nutrisystem:
Nutrisystem, Inc. (Nasdaq: NTRI) is a leader in the weight-loss industry, having helped millions of people lose weight over the course of more than 45 years. The Company’s multi-brand approach to weight loss includes multiple plans for 2018. For more information, go to NutrisystemNews.com and Newsroom.SouthBeachDiet.com.
I’m so glad I found this review! I was struggling with how I was going to afford 300 a month to keep going with nutrisystem… and then came your article with the ebay suggestion. Now I’m saving 80 a month and the 218 is well within my normal range for groceries :D. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
It is important to look for a plan that includes strategies for maintaining weight loss. There is nothing worse than regaining the weight that took you an enormous amount of hard work and patience to lose.
Hey EK, as far as I know, coffee is OK. 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).
In fact, the food I purchased for hopefully the duration of the diet cost me $80. It’s not completely accurate for NutriSystem to advertise their plan as a money-saver because they “provide the food.”
Read my comment to Lucy about gaining muscle through exercise–it will go someways to explaining things. You didn’t say if you’ve lost any inches since 8/1. Could be your a little slimmer without any actual pounds lost. Other people tend to notice before you do, by the way. Keep going and keep your goal firmly fixed in your thoughts.
Note: By accepting a “first month discount” or “free shipping,” you automatically agree to the terms, which is to accept at least two month’s supplies of meals, or two deliveries before you can cancel. If you try to cancel before the second shipment is sent to you, the company will still charge your credit card for the second month. For the majority of customers, this is not a problem because they generally intend to stay on the diet for two months or longer. That’s important to get the full benefit of the diet and achieve the level of weight loss they want.
I love Nutrisystem. I signed up for Nutrisystem’s men’s basic plan about three months ago. When I started the program I did not know if I would stick with it. Diets can be hard to stick with sometimes. However, the Nutrisystem plan is not hard to stick with. The plan is laid out so simply that anyone can follow it.
I did not lose much weight on Nutrisystem- Only 5 lbs in 3 weeks. Customer service is HORRIBLE!!! They wanted to charge me $89.99 to cancel! Ridiculous!!!!! I will never go back to them no matter how desperate I get.
I always thought, if I ever became rich and had the money to spare, I’d try out one of these food delivery systems in a heartbeat. Like Lynda, I love that everything is planned out already…there is no calorie counting or anything involved. Plus no cooking is involved, so it’s perfect for people with busy lifestyles. It seems like it would be easier to stick to a plan if all you can eat is already provided for you. To it easier to follow, I wouldn’t keep any other food in the house except for the fruits and vegetables needed to supplement the food provided.
I have been thinking about trying Nutrisystem for a few months now. I finally saw this package and decided to buy it. They where out of the regular package so I got the nutrisystem D package. I was surprised that some of the food is very tasty. My favorites are the potatoes, thin mint bar, rice and beans, and the lasagna. There where a few things that I did not find tasty but it was still edible. I love that you can add some of your own foods. If I get hungry I add a protein shake, low fat yogurt, and/or some fruit and veggies. This is not a starvation diet. In the first 4 days I’ve lost two pounds. That is amazing to me since I’ve tried other programs and have even gained weight instead of lost them. I hope to lose one more by the end of the week for a total of three pounds and feel like it is doable on this program without feeling deprived. It is also teaching me how to eat the proper portion sizes so I can still eat what I want within moderation. I will be buying another pack this weekend and then I’m going to sign up for the program so I make sure I keep getting the foods and don’t run out.
When you embark on the Nutrisystem diet, there are some plans to choose from so that you can pick the one that is right for you. You eliminate the guesswork because you purchase your meals directly from the company from a customizable menu. Each meal is nutritionally balanced, a proper proportion size, and pre-calculated for calories and other factors.
With the Basic plan, they will select a menu for you based on some of their most popular menu items. If you want to have more options, you can customize your menu for an additional fee, but at that point, it might be better to consider one of their other plans.
I love Nutrisystem! Before I would have to go on a 500 calorie diet to lose 1 pound. I like the food and when you follow it you will stay full and lose the weight. I have lost 20 pounds in 13 weeks and I don’t even fill like it is a diet because I take breaks but still eat how they tell you. I will stay on this until I lose 50 more pounds. Also I have more energy and my blood pressure has dropped to a low normal. I am off the blood pressure medicine and my doctor is very happy with the results of Nutrisystem. Some on here have not followed the plan and you need to eat everything, even if you are not hungry.
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. Best of luck with your weight loss- we’re pulling for you :-).
Nutrisystem works. As far as diets go Nutrisystem is a great plan. When I was on the Nutrisystem plan it worked for me. I lost weight, learned to eat healthier and felt great. Nutrisystem is also extremely easy to follow. The plan comes with easy to follow instructions on how to use the program to work for you.
Nutrisystem conducted a trial of 161 people. Dieters lost 8.3 pounds in a month (compared with only 2.8 pounds on a self-directed weight loss diet). A second trial of 84 overweight adults lead to a weight loss of 11.6 pounds in the first month (compared with a 5.9 lb loss on the DASH diet).
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… when you have the support of the person you live with, it truly is easier to succeed on this diet (and indeed anything you put both your minds to)!
One of the things I think is absolutely great about Nutrisystem is the literature they provide with your 1st order. I received a restaurant guide (used it twice already) and a menu book that includes approved foods you can use to supplement your menu at the grocery store. I am doing the 5 day flex plan, but am contemplating upgrading to the full 7-day program as it really is a no brainer and I am concerned about having the liberty to choose my own meals on the weekends (that has proven to be very dangerous!).
Full disclosure first: I have used Nutrisystem on and off since mid-2013 and it has helped me lose the better part of 100 pounds during that time frame. I would receive a full 28 days (4 weeks) worth of food on my doorstep every month for just under $300. As a result, I was able to both lose weight and stay on my strict budget. I definitely thought I hit the jackpot and could not have been happier with the service.
