When I fold my clothes I have a hard time believing how small my clothes are now. I wear a Medium size shirt and 6-8 in pants. I have some small dresses and shorts. I don’t have to shop in the plus size department anymore. I can wear clothes for nearly any store. I used to be limited in where I could shop, but not anymore.
U.S. News & World Report’s “Best Diets of 2017” has Nutrisystem ranked 16th, or “in the middle of the pack.” The Nutrisystem review rin “Best Overall Ditsates it a 3.3 on a scale of 5. The biggest problem with the diet, according to the best diets list, is it scores too low on long-term weight loss—it’s rated a weak 2.6. Though U.S. News & World Report does say you’ll “probably” lose weight. 
I’ve been curious about Nutrisystem for awhile now and wanted to try it. So far I’ve tried both the Jumpstart and Home Style kits sold at Wal-Mart. I did lose weight on it. The food is easy too prepare and tastes OK… the worst foods items are the meatloaf and potatoes meal and the turkey and stuffing meal. Most of the other food is good. I want to sign up on a Nutrisystem plan now because I have a lot of weight to lose and want more variety. The kits at Wal-Mart is a good way to introduce yourself to the products and see if the diet will work for you.
Thank you Norman! Only 2 days in and I’m down 3.5 lbs. It seems as soon as I get hungry it’s time for another meal or snack so that’s working well too AND….. I haven’t yet tried a food item I don’t like (that’s probably my problem, LOL) Loving it so far! Thanks again.
If you bought the first month at a discount rate with auto-delivery, there is a charge for early cancellation which I point out in my review and its clearly explained in the terms on the Nutrisystem website home page. It’s not the fault of customer service which is generally pretty good.

Anne – Your comment about finally losing 5 lbs in your third week makes me feel much better! I just ended my first week on NS Lean13 yesterday and have lost no more than 1 lb so far, but I suspect it’s because I quit drinking Pepsi and did juicing for 19 days a month ago, when I lost 5 lbs in the first week. Have 29 more lbs to lose, and I plan on sticking with Nutrisystem for several months. I really like the food, except for the Alfredo entree and possibly all the chocolate bars, but I like that I can choose the foods I want in my 2nd month’s shipment.
Nutrisystem is a diet plan that promotes portion control and low glycemic index foods. It has an official website in the internet at the present time where people can purchase prepackaged diet meals at affordable prices. The dieters who will register in the dietary program of Nutrisystem will be required to eat five nutritious meals every day. Five supplements with six servings of vegetables and fruits are included in the diet plan of this organization for its new members that are aiming to achieve gradual and effective weight loss benefits in their bodies.
Nutrisystem is built around portion control and meal planning. A feature of the diet is the glycemic index, a measure of how various carbs affect your blood sugar. The program is high in protein and emphasizes “good” carbs, such as many veggies and whole grains that are digested slowly. That keeps you feeling full longer and your blood sugar and metabolism from going out of whack.
Just to be clear, not all dieters will experience unwanted side effects with Nutrisystem Lean 13 meals and snacks. It just depends on how your body responds to these bars and shakes. While some customers mention no adverse effects, others say they have gas and bloating all the time while on the Nutrisystem diet.
I was commonly asked what you can eat while on Nutrisystem. When you’re on the Nutrisystem meal plan you get your three meals plus two snacks per day. They allow you supplement that with a variety of items.
I want to start by saying I’m 26, 5 ft 4in and weighed 140 lbs at the start of January this year. Now to a lot of people that might sound like I don’t need to lose any weight, but I feel fat and I just don’t look good in tight fitting clothes. I want to go out with my friends and dress to kill like they do, but I feel too self conscious, so I decided to start a diet and I chose Nutrisystem. I thought if I could lose an inch off my waist and 5 lbs in a week like they say, who knows how great I could look in a month, right? Well I was skeptical at first and when the package arrived and I started going through what was in there, I thought I made a big mistake. No way could I eat that stuff, it looked awful! But I already paid for it and they said I could get my money back if it didn’t work so I started the plan. The first few days were not as bad as I thought they would be. Food was better on the plate than it looked in the packets, but the meals were so small! I took advise and drank lots of water and added grocery items so I wouldn’t feel hungry and I just kept with it. I weighed in after 7 days and nearly fell off the scales. 134lbs. No way! I got out my tape and yeah, my waist was just over an inch smaller! No way!! I kept going even though there were some meals I didn’t like at all. I ate them anyway cause I was too shocked to quit. Well, the next 3 weeks my weight only dropped another 4 lbs and I ended the month at 131. I was worried I wasn’t going to lose any more, but when I spoke to a nice lady in support, she told me it was normal to slow down after a fast start and if I wanted to go another month I could expect another 4-8 lbs loss, so I ordered a second month. I figured even another 4 lbs would be great because I was already looking good in tighter clothes like my friends. I’m 2 weeks in and sure enough only lost another 2lbs so far. I don’t want to put anyone off doing this because its working for me, just slower than the ads make out. But second time around I ordered the select program that cost more but the meals are tons better. They’re frozen meals I think they come from Schwanns but it was worth the extra cost to at least sort of enjoy the food more than the packet stuff. Sorry this is so long, I typed it out in MS Word first so I have a copy in case it doesn’t get published or something. Hope it does! – Jeannie.
To get it in the right perspective, all you need to do is look at the total price you’re paying for the diet. Then deduct from that what you’d normally spend on the total amount of food you would eat for 28 days.
As I see it, the Nutrisystem meal plan does one thing really well – it teaches you about proper portion size. Prior to going on Nutrisystem I was consuming over 4,000+ calories, as I can best estimate, on a given day. I was eating the amount of food needed to feed a small Russian army. The problem is, I looked like a small Russian army. 🙂
If you start to go off the plan by eating your meals out too much or cheating with an occasional supreme pizza, you are probably not going to see the results you are looking for. By following the plan exactly, you will lose weight. It’s just that simple. Sticking to it is the challenge. The Nutrisystem plan helps by also providing some sweeter options that are low-fat and low-calorie to take care of your sweet tooth in the process.
Alcohol: The Nutrisystem program recommends abstinence from, or limiting, alcohol consumption because “alcoholic […] tend to be high in calories and often contain extensive fat, cholesterol and sodium.”

While mostly revolving around meal delivery, but the company consistently reminds clients of its food philosophy as a way of developing a healthier relationship with food. Again and again, you will be reminded of the importance of small, frequent meals; healthy portion sizes; and balanced nutrition. While you can certainly just eat the meals without giving the matter any extra thought, you should try to learn about what goes into each and why it is healthy. That way, if and when you decide to transition off of the plan, you will know how to keep up your momentum on your own.
There are some success stories posted on the official website. These are before and after photos with names and the amount of weight each person lost. However, these success stories may not apply individually to Nutrisystem Lean 13. There are also celebrity testimonials, one of which is Marie Osmond, the spokesperson for this company, who lost 50 pounds.
Today marks the one month point in my NS weight loss journey and I could not be more thrilled with the results! I am a 54 year old woman with a small frame for my height of 5’7″, and grew to a very unhealthy weight of 183.5. This morning I weighed in at 169.5!!!! That’s 14 pounds in one month. I am finally motivated in a way I haven’t been in years. My goal is around 145 and I plan to leave nothing to chance and will stay the course until I reach it.
In case you were wondering about clinical research or any other medical backup, dieticians do believe it can work. If the candidate is disciplined enough, the foods from Nutrisystem are very healthy and balanced.
People have asked me how do I stick to the diet during holidays or when family decides to go out to eat. “Do you ever cheat?” They will ask. Well, that’s a struggle sometimes. But I can say I now have control. The first holiday I had to concur was Easter weekend as I had to face a sunrise breakfast at church and a big family dinner. I allowed myself to enjoy all the foods that were offered. However, since being on Nutrisystem, I have a pretty good idea on the right foods to stay clear of, and how big of portions I should have. I even enjoyed some bacon, a piece of cheese cake and a peep. The day after that Easter, I was nervous about stepping on the scales. To my surprise, I hadn’t gained a pound, but instead, I actually lost a few ounces.
I enrolled in auto-shipment and would find another package at my door before I used up what I already had. At some point I had so much food and was so discouraged that I ended the shipments. I ate the food once in awhile and most of it ended up as food for my brother’s pigs and chickens!
Nutrisystem also puts much emphasis on the importance of exercise. The company encourages “50 minutes of moderately intense physical activity each week” through its My Daily 3® plan. This focuses on 30 minutes of daily physical activity.
The foods are really good. I love some of them, like most of them and only disliked one or two items out of the whole menu. One of my favorite foods from Nutrisystem is their Mexican style tortilla soup, it’s great.
