The website FAQ admits that alcohol is detrimental to any weight loss goal. Alcoholic drinks are extremely high in calories and fat, sodium and cholesterol. The system says that you should limit your use of alcohol if you want to optimize your results on the program. Nutrisystem also says that alcoholic intake may be a bit more lenient in the Transition and Maintenance parts of the program.
I will say though with my activity level I was very hungry at first until I talked to a NS councelor whom was very professional and helped me to insure I was getting enough callories due to my workouts, He went through every meal of the day with me and told me to include two salads ‘ lunch and dinner’ and a extra ‘ smartcarb’ THIS did the trick and I am no longer starving!
Jokes aside, what I really like about Nutrisystem is they reset your mind to look at eating in a more balanced way. You eat what you need. No more, no less. Honestly, at first, this was a literal shock to my system. I went from the 4,000 calorie a day consumption to 1,000 calories per day – for the first week.
I have needed to lose weight for quite awhile and am just glad that I’m finally doing something about it. I have lost 14 pounds so far with the Nutrisystem men’s basic plan and I am very satisfied with the program and my progress.
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:
Hi Jonni – I’ve added some information about the cancellation policy in my auto-delivery section up above, but basically you have to be on Nutrisystem for 2 months to avoid paying the $99 early termination fee. If after your first month you have decided you don’t want to eat the food any longer, you can switch to just the shakes for the second month, which costs about $79 and then cancel your plan after your order of shakes ship.
Support: Medifast’s “Take Shape for Life” program provides free access to a personal health coach. You also have free online access to food journals, nutrition guides, a weight-loss blog, and chat rooms.
It’s been a while since NutriSystem felt that sexy, too. The veteran diet-industry player was bankrupt a decade ago, then reinvented itself as an Internet distributor in 1999, struggling to sell its prepackaged meals through banner ads on Web sites. It took Net entrepreneur Michael J. Hagan to turn things around, ironically by shifting NutriSystem’s ad budget from the Web to traditional media.
I really do like a lot of the food they deliver. I’m really happy with all of the pasta dishes. The Chicken Pasta Parmesan is my favorite dinner meal so far. I like the BBQ Sauce over Beef, but the BBQ Sauce with Pork Wrap tastes a little too spicy to me. I do not like the Grilled Chicken Breast at all, and I wasn’t real thrilled with the Flame Broiled Beef Patty – I’ve been spoiled by Wendy’s.
The WalMart Nutrisystem product line is huge. The highest-rated is Nutrisystem Members’ Favorites 5-Day Diet Kit. Of more than 100 reviews, this particular Nutrisystem meal kit earned 4.6 out of 5 stars. More than 70 reviewers gave it five stars.
I don’t have to tell you how much weight you could lose by choosing Nutrisystem as your diet program, since it’s reputation precedes it with thousands and thousands of successful customers who can back up their promise to you.
Examples of the types of vegetables that you will find on the list include tomatoes, kale, zucchini and broccoli. This is a great opportunity to broaden your dietary horizons and to find veggies that you can nosh on whenever you feel cravings strike.
I have to admit that I was skeptical at first. I thought it sounded too good to be true. Nutrisystem commercials seem like the program would be very simple and easy to follow. I never understood how someone with so much weight to lose like I had could eat the same things as someone with just a few pounds to lose. It seemed to me that we would need different programs but with Nutrisystem we can both use the same program and still be successful. Also,I thought that it would be expensive but it’s really less than I used to spend on eating lunch before I started the program. A typical lunch out costs at least $10 and that’s just one meal. Nutrisystem costs around $10 a day. Cutting back on eating out and choosing Nutrisystem instead saved me money.
Another study, also funded by Nutrisystem but designed and conducted independently, compared weight lost by dieters in an unnamed internet weight-loss program (the control group) and by dieters in the internet program with Nutrisystem meals. At 12 weeks, 22 Nutrisystem dieters lost an average of about 14 pounds while the 25 control dieters lost an average of about 9.
“I’m not convinced that the glycemic index is the be-all and end-all for weight loss,” says registered dietitian Leslie Bonci, director of sports-medicine nutrition at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. In fact, Bonci thinks it’s probably the low-calorie nature of this diet that’s helping dieters shed pounds. “These portions are very small,” she says of the daily meal plans. “Two ounces of turkey, some sliced cucumber, and wheat bread is not a lot of food.” And she worries that the calorie count may be too low for some people.
Not a problem at all Debbie. I looked at those programs and pulled the trigger on NutriSystem as a family member used them & had success. I think you’d be surprised just how much of it does come down to portion sizes – I eat a lot less than I used to and it all came as a result of NutriSystem.
The following is a blog documenting two Los Angeles Times editors’ attempts to lose weight. It all began on Jan. 10 . My weight-loss partner, Tony, is turning into Elvis Presley. Well, he’s going to Vegas. And he’ll probably have a few dozen grilled peanut butter and banana sandwiches. You can see it a mile away. He just quit something called the Cookie Diet (after being on it for about 10 days), ate an entire box of chocolates yesterday and is now heading to Las Vegas for a long weekend.
Medifast could also be good for someone with high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and heart disease. Weight loss helps each of these conditions and may even reduce the need for medicine. Talk to your doctor before making any changes to your medicine.
The price of the prepackaged diet meals of this dietary program is expensive. As of now, the standard price of the prepackaged meals from Nutrisystem is already $350. The prepackaged diet meals that are covered by this price are already good for 28 days. However, the members of this dietary program will be required also to purchase a wide variety of fruits and vegetables that will support the effects of the prepackage meals that Nutrisystem will provide to them. That’s why it will become more expensive.
Hey Nikki: So you didn’t much like the food then? When you get around to taking the “cat food challenge,” maybe you can come back and tell us all how it really compares. But get someone else to buy you that cat food first or it won’t be fair.

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.
The taste of the food seems to be… well… a matter of taste. Some people are happy with it, while other (typically more vocal customers) do not think much of the taste.To be honest, given the price of the food, be aware of how high you set your expectations. Other popular food delivery programs start at $675 per month!
