The Costco purchased gift cards can definitely be used and there is a space at checkout to put them in. You will just have to make sure you put the gift card in a few days before the processing date for additional deliveries. They will still need to have a credit card on file with your order, even if it was 100% paid with gift cards. I just went through this whole process and received my order today.
Friends and people who read this testimony say that this is one of the most interesting Nutrisystem weight loss stories they have read. But let me tell you how it all started and about my Nutrisystem results.
I thought it was okay… not gourmet food by a long way, but it was pretty good overall. I stuck to the diet and only added broccoli and kale to the main meals and ate an apple every day cause I heard that they keep the doctor away hehe… Well, I lost 11 pounds over four weeks and to be honest, i never lost anything before on other diets so I was pretty delighted, to say the least.
If you can stick to the prepackaged meals and add only healthy foods, research to support the program suggests you will lose weight. The meals you’ll eat are good for you, nutrition-wise. 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.
I’m just finishing week one and I love the program. I don’t have any frozen items, just pantry meals. So far everything has been pretty good, no complaints. I’m not a big fan of anything chocolate, and there are a lot of chocolate items for breakfast, lunch, and dessert, so I’ll be changing that up on my next shipment, but otherwise – no complaints! While the plan is a little expensive ($280-$350), I’m actually saving a little money. I was spending that much on groceries each month anyway, plus all of the fast food lunches, eating out with friends, etc…so this is actually a win-win in my book. The days are super easy to plan and adding veggies and diary is a snap. I actually enjoy putting my menus together every few days. The only thing I caution people on is the sodium intake – it can get a little high with all the packaged food. I’ve stuck to the plan pretty strictly, with one dinner exception (where I ate fish and veggies from a restaurant), and I don’t find it difficult at all. Looking forward to the weeks to come!
As I moved into week two, the meals were ones that I had chosen and I learned that there are plenty of tasty choices. The simplicity and convenience has been so worth every penny. It just takes the guess work out of the mix and I needed that support to make it happen. Among my favorite breakfast choices are the Turkey Sausage & Egg Muffin, the Baked Blueberry Oatmeal and any muffins or omelets. Lunches are less exciting but the bars are so easy for days that I am stuck in my car. The frozen melts, soups, and cheesy noodle choices are my faves. Dinner favorites include the stuffed chicken breasts, mashed potato and turkey medallions, and some of the frozen Italian tomato sauce/pasta entrees. The ice cream sandwich is my favorite snack item for sure. There are lots of sweet and salty choices and I do look forward to those. The pizzas are the worst by far. The chili runs a close second-nasty! Uniquely Yours would allow me to order 20 TurkeyMashed Potato meals if I wanted to and I just might!
Due to unusually high demand for our weight loss program, we are experiencing temporary shortages of some of our food products. Because of this, we may have had to substitute some items which you ordered that were out of stock with others of comparable value. We apologize for this temporary inconvenience, and thank you for your understanding in this matter.
Jenny Craig and Nutrisystem are both available online, but Nutrisystem has several key advantages many customers prefer. They don’t require you to sign a contract for how long you’ll use the service, whereas Jenny Craig does. Nutrisystem also has more customizable and specialized plans. The Jenny Craig diet has different plans for men and women and for different age groups, but they don’t have vegetarian or diabetic meal plans.
Some of the food is quite bland in taste, but this is only my personal opinion. I am a very picky eater and am used to especially spicy foods with lots of flavor, like Thai food. The chicken and pasta in cacciatore sauce was not to my liking, as it just tasted so bland to me. But, to my great relief, there are other meals like the sweet and sour chicken with noodles that is to die for. I am going to complete my 7 day program until I reach my ideal weight. At this rate, it won’t take me long.
The 2018 advertising campaigns are multi-dimensional and utilize our brand ambassadors, social influencers and customer success stories.

The Nutrisystem Plan for women gives you a great way to lose weight and transform your body! It includes a meal plan that allows you to choose from many great-tasting prepackaged meals and desserts online 24 hours a day.
The specialist Uniquely Yours plans provide you with a large collection of high quality fresh frozen meals to choose from. All the above plans are specially tailored to the needs of each group as we all have slightly different nutritional requirements.
The plan is not for pregnant women, people with chronic kidney disease, or anyone with certain allergies or diet needs. It’s not for children under 14, though Nutrisystem offers programs for teens ages 14 to 17.
Their customer service is terrible. I called to cancel as I first used the Turbo ten and very diligently, but lost 0 pounds. Then I started the food and nothing. The food is awful and the tastes like sawdust. I wish I had gone with my first instinct and chosen Weight watchers. But my problem came when I called to cancel. I was not willing to pay another 99.00 over the 350.00 already spent! I was telling the rep about how I did not lose any weight, she insisted I would have to pay the 99.00 I owed before I could cancel. I said no and that they should give me my 350 back as well. So she said she would cancel and send me an email. This morning I looked at my credit card statement and there was a charge from Nutrisystem! So no they DO Not refund your money! It is a tactic to lure you in!
Nutrisystem is going to be fewer calories than you’ve been eating. If it weren’t, you wouldn’t lose any weight. At first, the portions seem pretty small. But they actually fill you up. So I guess the answer is that it’s definitely enough food to be full, but it isn’t as much as you’re probably used to eating. For me, that was actually great, because I feel like it taught me how proper portioning works.
Nutrisystem for Women helps you lose weight using a scientific system based on calorie and portion control. You can exercise all you like – but if you’re not eating the right food, and if you’re eating more calories than you’re spending, then you’re never going to lose weight. Weight loss is that simple.
I have to say, I really do love the lunch, dinner, desserts and snacks that I’ve tried so far. It is the breakfast that I’m having trouble with. I do not like the taste of the cereal at all. It is hard to describe. I kind of think it tastes like cardboard. I haven’t tried all of them yet, but that is my general feeling about the cereal during the first three weeks of the plan. I’m happy with the muffins and the granola bars, so I’ll probably need to stick with those choices for breakfast.
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).
I’ve just added a little salt & pepper to a few of the items. But so far, My future Mother In Law’s pre wedding gift to me has already got me re-motivated, feeling better & back to losing weight again! 🙂

The New England Journal of Medicine concluded in 2013 that a portion-controlled and calorie-restricted diet is pretty tried and true. And while it does not comment specifically on Nutrisystem, the point is made. 
I am on day 4 of the 5 day plan, and I have followed the plan to a tee. The first day was the hardest (very hungry in the afternoon), but I have since been fine. The program works by giving you a base meal, and you add additional items. Typically, you add in 2 proteins, 3 veggies, and 2 carbs a day. So here is an example of my day: Breakfast: provided meal and Greek yogurt – protein #1 Snack: an apple – carb #1 Lunch: provided meal with a salad containing chicken or hard boiled egg, mushrooms, tomatoes, and a light vinaigrette dressing – veggie #1 and protein #2, Snack: carrots and celery – veggie #2, Dinner: provided dinner, and add canned pineapple and steamed broccoli – carb #2 and veggie #3 There is also a dessert, which I have only eaten once because I haven’t been hungry after dinner and I forget about it. Is the food good? Some is and some isn’t. It’s a diet! Last I checked, diet food is a always a compromise. I was not a big fan of the lasagna, but I could eat it. The beef and potatoes is gross, but I added S&P, and it was tolerable. I thought the pizza was pretty good for microwaved pizza. The rest of the meals so far are fine. Since I add a salad with chicken or an egg, I don’t miss a “meal” when the provided lunch is a meal bar. And I’m not hungry! I was SURE I was going to be starving on this plan. I’m not. I just picked up another 5 day pack to continue with the plan for another few days before deciding whether to sign up for the regular Nutrisystem plan. I am leaning towards doing it. I’ve lost 2 lbs. in 3 days, and my weight doesn’t typically fluctuate, so I know it is real weight loss. For ease of use compared to other diets I’ve done, this is definitely worth it. If I could spend hours planning and prepping my own food, I’d skip this. But even with the prep time needed for the food like chopping veggies, cooking chicken/eggs, etc., it is worth it for me to use the plan. I’d recommend trying it. The worst you could lose is the money spent on the meal plan. Or, you might lose some weight!
I just started the 5 day trial .. I did purchase the D plan for diabetic because this is what was available at Walmart at the time. The prepared foods makes it so much earier and as much as I have read horrible stories on the taste, I have to disagree. Sure the muffin isn’t fluffy and the foods are processed but they take the challenge out of calorie counting and preparing. I so far actually have not had anything I would call awful. It’s pretty darn good. Portions may be small but you eat all day on this plan. Also, keep in mind your great food and large portions is why you are now purchasing this product. Going into my 3rd day… haven’t weighed again but feel great and body feels lighter and happier … I recommend this product and will be purchasing more.
The Nutrisystem plan comes with a money back guarantee. If a person joins the program and does not like it he can receive his money back. That’s why I decided to try Nutrisystem, because it looked simple and I knew I could get my money back if I didn’t like it.
I have been on the Nutrisystem for 5 days and the food is horrible. It tastes like ‘dog’ food on certain items there is a plastic preservative pack with ‘do not eat’ and stuck to the food I mean on the food! The food is full of sodium. The food gave me gas, bloated stomach, frequent bowel movements and constipation to…
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).
Good luck with yours Henry. You sound to me like you already achieved your goal in your mind. And it’s only a matter of time and of course with determination and perseverance that you’ll see it come about for real!
This meal diet is said to work well and fast in enhancing* weight loss*. It’s a meal program that offers different meals, produced from natural ingredients that help in weight loss*. It delivers long lasting result and its said to have no adverse side effects.
Lean meat, fresh or frozen vegetables, fruits, nuts, bread and pasta will keep you going a long time. A diet program like those we’ve looked at can get you started. After you’ve learned how much better you look and feel minus those extra pounds, maybe you’ll even be motivated to find that dietitian we talked about earlier.
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!

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. When talking to someone at Nutrisystem about this was told that even though I paid for my first month of food i would be charged another $99 to keep the food I already paid for, but could get a full refund and return the dry food. 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.
