Nutrisystem is a meal-plan system that’s designed to enable weight loss. The company behind this system provides all the food you’ll need for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, delivering the food right to your door.

It’s because your body will try to keep itself stabilized as best it can by taking whatever calories you’re putting into it and storing them as fat. It does that so it can cope with a potential long haul of calorie restriction. In this circumstance, you need to exercise as well.
A second benefit to the Nutrisystem program is that there are avenues of support for its members. There is an online community of others using the plan that can become a significant support group and means of encouragement as you adjust to the diet or experience any stumbling blocks or setbacks.
If you order the food, Nutrisystem takes care of the rest. You just eat what they tell you to eat when they tell you to eat it. All of the nutrition facts are posted on the food labels, so you know what you’re getting. This system works similarly to other diets such as Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig, and South Beach Diet.
You have to remember, this is a company that has been a leader in the weight loss diet meal replacement business for over 40 years. So I’m sure you can sort of trust they know a thing or two about dieting!

Lucky me I recently found Nutrisystem and started with the Fast 5 plan and couldn’t believe what I was seeing on the scales after just 5 days. I had lost 6 pounds! I’ve never lost weight before on a diet and was totally floored as you can imagine. I’m now two weeks into the womens standard plan and so far have lost an additional 4 pounds. The food is much better than I thought it would be and those little snack bars are what saved me from my habit of snacking between meals. I think if it didn’t have that small detail I would of caved. But I haven’t so far and I think its getting easier to eat the smaller meals and still not crave more snacks. I am on autodelivery and will definitely be continuing for another month, maybe two. I need to lose 50 pounds in all and I think this diet will help me do that. My only worry was what happens after the diet ends, but I’ve been reading some of the other comments here and I’m reassured I can continue eating better food in smaller portions and not revert to my old snacking habits. Only time will tell. Thanks for the writeup and the encouragement your words and these comments have given me already.
“I expected dry cardboard flavored food but was so pleasantly surprised. The food (at least what I ordered) was delicious! The chocolate muffins, A+, Pasta Items A++. Unfortunately, it wasn’t agreeing with my body so I had to stop the program. Customer Service provided me with a full refund, no hassles. My experience with Nutrisystem has been a great one!”

I didn’t realize the difference a few pounds can make until I put the photos side by side. This put me in the mood to clean out my closet and toss out all the size 12’s and large clothes. My size 10’s were now too loose.
If you get Nutrisystem from Costco.com, often times they have a sale and you get $100.00 worth Nutrisystem gift cards for $59.00. I used one of these each month to supplement my Nutrisystem order. That saved me $80.00.
So, basically no veggies, basically no fruit. This is not a healthy and complete diet. And the way you are going to lose weight is by hardly eating, by limiting yourself to very small portions. You’re not going to do that for long. So what if you lose some weight in two months? You will gain it right back when you start eating normally.
That being said, I’d have to disagree with you on the portion sizing. I think they were just fine and when you add in foods they allow you to add in it really is a lot of food – just the right food. I would also add that a big key to leaving the plan is continuing to live out what you learned as you go back to “real” food. If you don’t, you’re leaving yourself open to adding the weight back on.
Nutrisystem makes sure to put all of its deliveries in recyclable containers. All containers will either be 100% fully recyclable or 75% recyclable using expanded polystyrene. The company recommends that clients go to http://www.reuseps.com for lists of drop off locations for recyclable items.
If you just want to try it for a month you’ll have to pay more. Their month-by-month program is $386, over $120 more than the auto-ship price. Obviously they want to make their money by repeat purchases, but this seems like a rather excessive surcharge just to avoid getting automatic shipments.
Good afternoon! I started the program today, January 1st. My resolution is to feel better about myself, but do it in a healthy way that had structure. I was alittle disappointed that they didn’t include a booklet with ideas on what a typical day should look like. How much and when I should be eating vegetables, and ideas on what to eat if you have to attend a social function or business based meeting that involves food. I printed out everything I could find, but I’ll make it work. Thanks for posting a well written, and information overview of this program. I’m ready to start losing!! Thanks Norm!
We had to take Nutrisystem program for 8 weeks because we got it at a discount thru our insurance company. My goal was to loose 30 lbs. and my wife’s goal was to loose 10 lbs. At the end of the 8 weeks I had lost only 3 lbs. and my wife only lost 1 lb. We did not care for the cardboard like food and did not get anywhere close to our goals. This program obviously works for lots of folks, but not for us. We did go to the Naturally Slim program and in 8 weeks I lost 18.5 lbs. and my wife lost 10 lbs. Naturally Slim is based on not what you eat but when and how you eat and you eat your own real food and got real results. We will stay with our new habits learned with Naturally Slim and will not have any good words from our Nutrisystem experience.
I have a handicapped daughter who has gained so much weight. We have tried everything with very little success. After taking to her doctors we decided to give NS a try. She started the program on February 16, 2017. She is loving the food and the program. Although it’s been four days on the turbo 10. She has already dropped three pounds. She feels great. Her beginning weight was 356. So she has a long way to go. But the support and your post will definitely help her obtain her goals for healthier lifestyle. We will keep you informed on her progress.
The NutriSystem meal program is basically a delivery diet service — complete with the burgers, desserts and other foods you love. Everything comes in prepackaged portions, meaning you’ll eat enough to sustain your body’s dietary needs and avoid overeating. You even get to eat five times a day, which should help squelch those between-meal cravings.
NOTE: This is a blog about two guys attempting to lose weight over a six-week period. Jimmy Orr is trying Nutrisystem. Tony Pierce is freelancing. They began on Jan. 10. I found myself saying ‘Hello children’ numerous times in the voice of “South Park’s” Chef; as I pulled out a Nutrisystem Salisbury steak TV dinner on Thursday night. Chef, as voiced by the late Isaac Hayes, frequently had Salisbury steak on the school lunch menu and would offer to serve it up to the South Park kids right before some disaster would inevitably strike.
Among the best products we’ve seen is Burn HD. We like that each of the four ingredients have clinical testing showing a direct, or indirect, benefit to people losing weight. It’s also satisfying to see all the positive user reviews.
Weight Watchers has been around for what seems like forever and has a large band of loyal followers. It once relied on support groups and face-to-face counseling to help dieters stay on course. Those options are still available but online and mobile app support has displaced a lot of facetime.
The downside is that variety can be limited. Sometimes popular choices are sold out in which case you’ll be sent an alternative that might not taste as good. When you cook your own food, you can customize it anyway you want to. With Nutrisystem you’re stuck with what they give you.
Nutrisystem provides food for me to eat so I don’t have to worry about what to eat or how much to eat. I pick the food I want to eat from the menu that Nutrisystem provides. Nutrisystem also shows me how to plan what to eat for the day.
