I have been on Nutrisystem for about 5 weeks now. I lost 15 pounds the first month and have been following it to a T. I went out to eat for 1 meal in that month and it didn’t affect my weight loss at all. The food tastes fine and it is very easy to just grab something pop it in the microwave if necessary and go. I have been using My Fitness Pal to track my food and am eating about 1000-1100 calories a day.
I am on my first week of NS….the turbo week. 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 2000 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…living alone and hard to cook for just one. 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…which is I need right now! Thank you NS! 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…but it is worth my health if this works. Way less expensive than medication, procedures, etc, if your health goes downhill!
I have nothing but problems with the company. Stemming back to when I ordered in phone and couldn’t speak to anyone because due to weather no one in office. I understand that Acts if God is no ones fault but the things since then are NOT acceptable. Still waiting for…
According to WebMD, a typical Nutrisystem meal is half “smart” carbs—ones that don’t raise blood sugar—with the other half equal parts protein and good fats. Nutrisystem also limits sodium (salt) to about 2,000 milligrams a day. 
Nutrisystem’s weight loss plan ensures special attention to the meals included in it so that they are protein rich as with ageing the cellular and muscle damage occurs to a greater extent and body need a lot of protein to cope up with that. Lower amounts of sodium are included in the food preparation for senior citizens as it helps regulate their blood pressure. Reduced cholesterol and high fiber content is ensured in the food and inclusion of Omega 3 fatty acids is a newer feature. In addition, gluten-free diets among older adults are becoming more popular and this is another great feature of Nutrisystem Silver.
So far, my favorite is the mushroom risotto, the chicken with dumplings, and the chili with beans, the flame broiled beef patty, the barbecue sauce pork wrap, the chocolate chocolate chip pudding, the chocolate crunch bar, the chocolate chip cookie, the creamy tomato sauce, the blueberry pancakes and the blueberry muffins. I could go on and on about the rest of Nutrisystem’s dishes but I’m making myself hungry 😉 I enjoy eating all of Nutrisystem’s foods. I do not think I have found a food that I did not like yet.
In recent years there has been considerable improvement in food quality. None of the meals have any trans-fat or high fructose corn syrup. Nutrisystem have been criticized for the amount of sodium in their food. They have addressed this in recent years and customers can expect around 2000mg/day sodium if on a Nutrisystem plan. This is consistent with current dietary guidelines that suggest a maximum of 2300mg/day.

If you have trouble coming up with new menu items, or don’t know what a balanced meal is supposed to look like, then signing up for Nutrisiystem for a month is a good idea. This way you can see the sort of meals you can make, the portion sizes, and the different food combinations that work for you.
Although Nutrisystem has programs for “meat eaters” as well, the company recognizes the discipline that it takes to be a vegetarian. The vegetarian program has just as many meal options (100+) as the other programs. Here are a few of them:

Have you ever considered creating an ebook or guest authoring about Nutrisystem on other sites? I have a blog based upon on the same ideas you discuss and would love to have you share some stories/information. I know my readers would appreciate your work. If you are even remotely interested, feel free to send me an email.
But you may still harbor doubts because an ad will not always tell you the whole story about a product pr service. It will tell you all the great things about it and none of the not so great things. So does the Nutrisystem diet program really work?
The Medifast meal plan can be more customizable, like Nutrisystem’s. The company also has plans for men, women, vegetarians, and those with diabetes. And they offer special shakes, like those designed for joint health or coronary health. Both programs, however, will encourage you to supplement the meal plans with fresh food from the grocery store, like fruits or salads, as a snack.
The other reason this program is so great is that now that I can control my food intake, I can also start working on my exercise routine. I love being able to track it online after each time I go for a walk or go to an aerobics class.
Hey Vicki, sorry to hear you failed and gave up on the diet so soon. Two weeks is never enough to know when a diet is working or not but if you felt it wasn’t for you, then its better to stop before the second month gets shipped. Sure, if you need to cancel you must act decisively within the first 14 days to stay within the Fast 5+ guarantee terms. Thanks for making people aware of this.
I followed the program without exception. Although I lost some bulk the first week, at the end, I never actually lost weight. I gained 1 lb. and that was disappointing although I enjoyed the food. I called and spoke with a counselor. He said that I was doing everything the right way but that I should cut back on the diet soda, which I did but it did not change anything.
In 2014, Nutrisystem created new programs, including NuMi, a digital product for do-it-yourself dieters that integrates with wearable fitness devices and health platforms, such as the Fitbit and Apple Health. It also runs a website called The Leaf, which provides recipes, tips on jazzing up Nutrisystem meals, fitness tips and more. Counselors are available by phone, chat or via NuMi from 7 a.m. to midnight, seven days a week.
Thus, I turned to Nutrisystem. This was not a financial decision, per se, as you’ll see they can be relatively expensive – though there are hacks you can use to save significant money on the plan. Rather, it was a life decision. There was no real reason why I chose Nutrisystem.
it really is non-edible. My brother and I both bought it and threw it out. I think it was the nastiest thing I’ve ever tried–I’d rather not eat a thing than eat that. No wonder people lose weight. Wonder if their spokespeople get better food than ordinary people do. Or, they wouldn’t promote it as being good.
I purchased the 5 day plan from walmart the homestyle one. It gave me a chance to try the plan. I bought my produce and a smoothy blender for the shakes. The food is okay to tasty- I lost 5 pounds by the end of 5 days so I ordered ala cart frozen food and some other choices from nutrisystem. I had to pick up another 5 day kit while I waited for my nutrisystem order to come. The frozen food is really good, you just have to buy quite a bit to get free shipping. I did not do the auto ship or monthly plan as it seems many have complained about problems cancelling.
I wish I could say all the nice things I am reading. I’ve been on the program for 2 weeks now and have not lost a pound! I followed the first week strictly and was expecting some great results and I only lost 2 pounds. The first week was difficult but I stuck it through. I was disappointed but still encourage. After my second, when I started eating more calories, and working out even more, I gained the 2lbs right back! Very discourage at the moment but I am going to stick with the for the rest of the month. Although I am not losing weight, I am loving my new eating habits. I eat at least 4cups of veggies a day, I stopped eating candies and drinking soda. I used to eat peanut M&Ms everyday and now I don’t even pass by the vending machine. lol I was told by a counselor to increase my calories intake because I workout a lot so hopefully, week 3 and 4 give me some happy results
Earlier this week, on day 11, I bickered about having so many tiny portions of so many types of food throughout the day. I still think it’s a huge hassle, but I believe all the extra fruits, vegetables, healthy fats and protein content in my daily diet has given me a boost of energy. I have never had as balanced of diet in my life.
Very, very slow during the summer months. It does feel like you’re chained to the desk all day. Often times sales reps were taking mostly retention calls rather than sales calls. Call center was required to work on holidays except Christmas
Anyone who thinks NS food is good, or even OK, must have been eating some really ghastly stuff before! I run my own business and get absolutely tired of grocery shopping and cooking. The doctor ordered me to lose weight. I was willing to eat ANYTHING for meals that was easy. Why does NS call this stuff “meals?” I still had to shop, cook and supply most of what I ate, in addition to their “meal.” The stuff has so many awful ingredients! And it tastes awful! Cardboard “meat” patties covered with brownish, gellantinous goo. Good diet food can still offer a lot of interesting tastes. Not NS food. After 10 days on this diet I got so depressed I put it all back in the box and returned it. They should have refunded about $250 – they gave me a credit of $7.95 – they said I had returned one dessert. Liars! I tried for months and never got any more money from them. Customer NOService.
A diet made of convenience begs the question: Isn’t dieting about getting off the couch and working hard to lose weight? NutriSystem, a diet program based on prepackaged meals that contain all the calories and nutrients you need, seems to subtract the hard work from the weight-loss equation. You’ll still have to hit the grocery store for fruits, veggies and the like — which means you’ll have to resist the lure of the candy aisle — but most of the food-preparation work is done for you.

NOTE: This is a blog about two guys attempting to lose weight over a six-week period. They kicked off their weight loss “strategies” on Jan 10. ‘So easy, a caveman can do it.’ Not only one of the greatest slogans when the ads first came out a few years ago, but also my new motto on my quest to lose 25 pounds in 12 weeks. I don’t want to think. Many people think I’ve achieved that goal already (long ago). But when it comes to dieting, I don’t want to guess.
