The owners of the Nutri-System diet center franchise for Orange County are expanding and are also reopening some centers in the greater Los Angeles area that were closed in May. Parent company Nutri-System Inc., based in Blue Bell, Pa., shut down 283 company-owned diet centers across the nation after creditors pushed the company into involuntary bankruptcy proceedings. Last week, however, a U.S.

Nutrisystem is pretty wonderful in one aspect, may favorite: Portion size control. I realize that I had be programed to expect too much food. We’re eating too much food, period. On my first morning (this round) of Nutrisystem I opened the granola cereal packet and dumped it in a bowl. I thought “This ain’t enough”. But, guess what, it was. I was comfortable. The process of re-programing myself took a couple of weeks, maybe that entire month to really get used to portion control. But, now I have gotten used to it I like it. Now when I go to a restaurant and see how much food they put on a plate it just gets me. No wonder Americans can’t control their weight. We are programmed to think that we need way more food than we do. Also, now I really enjoy food so much more. My taste buds must be working better but, I enjoy food more while eating far less and no cheap, junk foods.
Just started my 6th week of NS, 25 lbs. down and enough inches decreased that I can fit in my “skinny” clothes again. Now I plan to keep going for 2 more months until our anniversary Cancun vacation. Feels great. And painless.
Don’t get discouraged on this or any diet. I asked the Wellness Director at work why I wasn’t losing weight, but my clothes were getting looser. I was also going to Planet Fitness with a friend a few tines a week. She said that what was happening was that I was building muscle, and redistributing my weight bc of exercise.
My roommates and I just started Nutrisystem. I want to lose 20 lbs. They need to lose 40. I’d just crossed the threshold into overweight, and wanted to get back down to where my pants fit instead of going out and buying a new wardrobe (Its actually cheaper to do Nutrisystem). We just finished the Fast5. My roommates dropped 2.5 pounds after 3 days. I actually gained a pound after three days (but I’m blaming hormones and mother nature). But, sure enough, after the week was over I’d lost 6 pounds! You have to fill in the gaps between meals with healthy vegetable snacks, and you have to get used to being hungry. Nutrisystem is cutting down the big portioned meals we are all used to, so your stomach at first is really confused and wanting to be full. It takes will power not to eat when you are feeling hungry, but if you are, just snack on something like carrots. It really gets you used to eating smaller meals, and eating more vegetables. We’ve also started going to the gym 2-3 times a week.
The big advantage of the more traditional plans, like Nutrisystem and Weight Watchers is that, unlike the two-shakes-a-day plans, they can help you learn good eating habits and adjust your appetite to match the reduced calories demanded by a modern, mostly sedentary lifestyle.
With this one-of-a-kind kit, they guarantee that you’ll shed five pounds plus an inch from your waist during your first week on the plan. All of this included with your first 4-week order, plus you get access to their team of experts who can give you the best advice for losing weight.
Well, as with any diet or weight loss program, you need to consider whether or not it’s a viable choice for you. As for Nutrisystem Lean 13, this system involves eating a lot of prepackaged meals, shakes, and bars. This is not for everyone. Just take a look at some of the Nutrisystem reviews posted around the web. Many people get very tired of the food options quickly.
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.
The second day I woke up with a slight headache but it soon subsided after I had a glass of water and breakfast. I added healthy snacks between my meals such as fresh avocado, yogurt and mixed nuts. The days got easier. By the third day of sticking to the plan (which was a big accomplishment for me), I was already feeling more energy and less bloating.
Nutrisystem Silver Basic – This is the cheapest option in the lot costing just a $8 for one day meals. It includes discounts if ordered through auto delivery process. Healthy supplements are also provided along with the meals to keep the heart healthy.
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.

There are also celebrity testimonials, one of which is Marie Osmond, the spokesperson for this company, who lost 50 pounds.
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!
But have you ever been really excited to start a diet? Like the time you saw an advertisement and said to yourself, “That sounds amazing” and you had to try it… and you did! As you read through this review and get more and more excited, your heart beats faster and you can see yourself succeeding with this amazing, easy and convenient dieting system.
I’m at the end of my 2 months and haven’t lost any more weight. I lost 10 pounds after the first week. was very excited and I’ve been very serious about losing weight. My goal was to lose 30 pounds and after following the diet strictly I never lost one more pound. I followed the daily tracker booklet every day. I don’t dare ask for my money back since I didn’t cancel within the first week… Bummer!
My name is Susan, and I am one of the many women who lost weight on Nutrisystem. Before I elaborate on this Nutrisystem review and show you my Nutrisystem before and after photos, let me tell you a little bit about me. I am a 33-year-old woman. I am married. We do not have any children yet. We do have an adorable lab mix named Samantha that we love and cherish. We live in North Florida near Tallahassee. My husband and I moved up here from Gainesville, FL. The move was quite an adjustment. Since moving nearly eight years ago we now have an hour commute to and from work each day.
I do not want any further food shipped to my house. I’ve contacted my credit card to not pay for any further Nutrisystem charges. I will pursue further actions if you continue to send any product to me. I called and the guy said he cancelled my account. This better be the case.
Diet plans such as these can work just like any other diet. As long as you’re burning more calories than you’re eating, the weight will come off. All Nutrisystem does is make it easier for you to eat less.
Okay, well first off NO ONE should go down to 1,000 calories a day. I’m all for losing weight, but I count 1,200 (net after any exercise) as the bare minimum for health. That’s how much a 160 lb person burns lying in bed all day. Much below that — assuming you weigh more than 110ish lbs — and your body goes into starvation mode.
I’ve been on the program for 4 weeks and have lost 13 lbs. I feel so much better in my clothes. I plan to lose another 20 lbs. The first week on the Turbo diet I too experienced gas and bloating. So much so that I had to put a fan on the floor of my cubicle to keep the air clear. I think it’s caused by the shakes and the crush bars. Since I’ve switched over to their food the gas has stopped….except for the chili and the rice and beans, which I won’t order again. Not that they tasted bad but they gave me serious gas.
Note: By accepting a “first month discount” or “free shipping,” you automatically agree to the terms, which is to accept at least two month’s supplies of meals, or two deliveries before you can cancel. If you try to cancel before the second shipment is sent to you, the company will still charge your credit card for the second month. For the majority of customers, this is not a problem because they generally intend to stay on the diet for two months or longer. That’s important to get the full benefit of the diet and achieve the level of weight loss they want.
I exercise 4 days a week and eat all my meals planned by the meal planner. The plan helps me when and if I go out to eat, and since I don’t have anything to count, I feel more comfortable. I have a very healthy diet now, and try to get my friends who need to lose weight to join too. There are so many people I think that could benefit from using the Nutrisystem meal plans, and it is so easy there’s no way to mess up.
