Thank you for the review. Since you are still a current employee, I would encourage you to share your specific feedback with your supervisor or a member of the HR team to ensure we are aware of the challenges as well as some ways that we can improve to make things even better…. MoreLess
I continued enjoying the Nutrisystem foods and never got tired of them. I found ways to apply my vegetables to my meals in creative ways such as adding spinach or olives to my Nutrisystem pizza or adding spaghetti squash to my Nutrisystem meatballs. The options are never ending.
Let me start by saying that I buy my cards through Costco for $199.00. This is actually a good plan because you get the card and then you go on Nutrisystem’s web site. The Nutrisystem website offers ratings on the food items. Trust me, you don’t want them telling you what you’re going to be eating. This plan is weekdays only. So, weekends are on your own. I way prefer this. Years ago my wife and I did the full plan and the auto-ship thing. We ended up with a ton of uneaten, expensive food. On this plan I can accomplish several goals. On this, I order food when I’m ready so, if we go on vacation I don’t have a shipment sitting on my front porch in the rain for a week and I’m not accumulating a lot of expensive food I can’t eat. I know I have two days a week to plan out potential restaurant trips. The weekends on your own works far better for me. This plan teaches me to eat right even when not eating Nutrisystem’s food and I’m getting better at it.
I had a friend who tried NS for a couple of weeks and while she claimed she stuck to the diet but actually put on a couple of pounds instead of losing. Granted she failed to exercise but she didn’t like the meals either. I can’t afford a weight loss program so I turned to Sparkpeople.com which is free. I’ve lost 30 pounds in 4 mo without the cost. I’m good with that.
Vegetarian & Diabetic Same as above plans. The daily and monthly prices for the Vegetarian and Diabetic meal plans from Nutrisystem are the same as for those listed above. That is, customers will not be charged more or less for choosing a Vegetarian or Diabetic meal plan option. All of the other three plans listed above offer a diabetic-friendly option.
Choosing the right product is the #1 question asked by DietSpotlight readers. We recommend trying any product before buying it and know that finding a product with a sample offer is near impossible – so we created our own product, Burn HD, with scientifically backed ingredients.
When I started the diet, I hoped to drop below 180 pounds. Seeing as how I’m only a pound away from that with two weeks left to go, I’ve decided to set a new goal. I now hope to lose another eight pounds and drop to 172 my weight when I was in college.
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. 
With the holidays over, you may be looking down at the bulging evidence of too much merriment around your waistline. If you’ve resolved to lose weight in 2010, you might be considering signing up for a commercial diet plan, such as Weight Watchers, Nutrisystem, or Jenny Craig.

As we try to live frugally I instantly wanted to find a way to save money on the Nutrisystem meal plan. Thankfully, there are a number of ways to do just that. Nutrisystem constantly runs different deals, especially at the beginning of the year. Often times they’ll allow you to try the first week or two for free and offer different customizable savings options.
We are fairly busy with working full time and the commute. Being busy and working so much led to eating a lot of fast food. We almost always got something from a drive thru on the way home from work. After getting home neither of us really felt like cooking something for dinner. So we took the easy way out and got something that was bad for us instead of preparing a healthy meal. I also ordered a fattening lunch most days too. I would just take the easy way out and not worry about the effects it was having on my weight and health.
I am 5’2 and 155 lbs. I want to try NS, but after reading all the comments, questions, praises, and complaunts, I’m afraid that I’ll gain weight instead of losing it. I don’t have any major health issues except for the fact that I am overweight. I want to lose at least 30 lbs, fast.Does anyone think it will work, or should I just try something by Dr. Ian Smith? I don’t want to throw my money in the trash… oh, did I mention that I have a hard time eating, smelling, or cooking chicken… it literally makes me sick to my stomach… would that really affect me?
Hi Amanda – Thanks for visiting and reading my story. Sounds like you’re well on your way to some pretty great results! Wow – 50 pounds – that’s impressive! Hope it goes as well this time around. Pairing the leafy greens with the lunches and dinners helps make it seem more like a “meal,” so I’ve found that helpful as well. Best of luck!
Taste: Nutrisystem products should be palatable for most. A 2011 Consumer Reports taste test that pitted Nutrisystem’s packaged meals against those of its rival, Jenny Craig, deemed Jenny the winner by a slight margin. While Jenny’s meals were slightly tastier, Nutrisystem’s fare was rated “good” overall. (A side test of frozen Nutrisystem entrees did much better than pantry ones, according to the review.) A company survey of 3,500 customers conducted in 2010 found that nine out of every 10 were happy with the quality and taste of their food. In 2014, Nutrisystem introduced 40 new items and reformulated another 32 products to remove artificial flavors and sweeteners. It also phased out 19 products based on customer feedback. It now has almost no artificial sweeteners, colors or flavors.
Nutrisystem is different than the other programs out there before they make it simple. You just follow their plan and eat their food along with some additional add-ins that you purchase at the grocery store and watch the weight come flying off. On Nutrisystem you are eating several times a day. You don’t feel hungry. You don’t feel deprived.
In a Nutrisystem-funded study of 69 obese Type 2 diabetics, published in the journal Postgraduate Medicine in 2009, researchers reported that those assigned to eat meals on the Nutrisystem D diabetic track lost an average of 18 pounds after three months compared with 1 pound for the control group, who attended educational sessions on diabetes management and nutrition. At six months, the Nutrisystem dieters were down an average of 24 pounds, while the controls – who were switched to Nutrisystem meals halfway through the six-month study – were down 13 pounds. In a similar study published in 2013 in Nutrition Diabetes, 50 Nutrisystem dieters lost an average of about 22 pounds in six months, while the 50 control dieters lost only about 5.

You should know that the meals are not gourmet feasts that you would get in top restaurants. They’re not comparable to the great home cooked meals your grandmother used to make. They are processed and pre-packed meals that are of reasonable quality for that type of meal. We mentioned this at length in our own reviews of Nutrisystem.
In the study, “Effects of Diet and/or Low-Intensity Resistance Exercise Training on Arterial Stiffness, Adiposity and Lean Mass In Obese Postmenopausal Women,” Figueroa and his colleagues were able to demonstrate that a hypocaloric diet may be recommended to reduce the increase in arterial stiffness associated with menopause and obesity. The study was published Jan. 7 in the American Journal of Hypertension.

One aspect of the Nutrisystem for Men plans that men enjoy is the frequency of meals – the plan calls for five meals a day. There is also room for flex meals. Flex meals are basically meals that you make yourself with a minimum of direction. The company claims that men can lose up to two pounds a week while remaining healthy, and they also deliver meals directly to clients.
When I joined Nutrisystem I was afraid the food would taste terrible as I had read a review online saying so. Of course there are a few foods that do not suit my taste such as the eggs frittata; however, most of the foods are delicious.

Nutrisystem will not let you cancel. You are unable to cancel online or by e-mail “to ensure the best service” (though you are able to enroll online – apparently service is not an issue if you are enrolling). Every time I try to cancel my auto-enrollment I am put on hold for 20+ minutes. The only way to speak to an actual person is to call to order and those people they can only process orders and will not help you cancel. I have spoken to several people that have heard me say I cannot get through on the cancellation line and each one has essentially said, “too bad”. They are trained to reject anyone who wants to cancel. I have even had one rep named Cheryl hang up on me!! I am appalled by this poor customer service. DO NOT use Nutrisystem.
If you’re on a program that includes flex meals, you’ll get to add in even more SmartCarbs! Click here for a full run-down of what your flex meals should look like. Or, check out this quick overview of what your Flex meals should look contain:

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.
New for 2018 is the 7-Day Body Reboot, the one-week Phase 1 jumpstart that helps break the sugar habit and delivers fast results. In Phase 2, designed for steady weight loss, customers choose from an expanded menu and start adding in good carbs like fruits and whole grains. Phase 3 helps customers learn how to maintain a healthy weight, without hunger or deprivation.
Nutrisystem also has more than 150 foods, many of which are “every day” foods. Jenny Craig has about 80 items to choose from, many of which aren’t “every day” foods. Jenny Craig is also much more expensive all the way around. They require a membership fee and charge for delivery in most cases, while Nutrisystem doesn’t. They also don’t offer a risk-free guarantee, while Nutrisystem does.
Yesterday and today, so far, have been much easier. Yesterday, I even skipped one of my two allowed desserts. It’s hard to imagine any real transformation in my body’s operations in so few days after years of uncalculated feeding, but I hope that’s what’s happening. I’m not sure I can handle many more hunger pangs like those I had Sunday.
The other really great thing about this plan is the Restaurant Guide. I have to go out to lunch a lot with my clients, so having the Restaurant Guide at my disposal is extremely helpful because I can still take my clients out to lunch without worrying that I’m going off of my diet plan.
