Nutrisystem is an economical way of losing weight, with very little time investment. However if the taste of food is not to your liking, be prepared to pay around 2-4 times more for other delivered diets.
I like your review. Smart, intelligent, and not spiteful…yet still covering the “weakness” of the plan, i.e. not the BEST tasting food ever. It is enjoyable to read well organized and constructed reviews; and good spelling is the icing on the cake!
1. Super I have a family of 8 children and I homeschool. I am busy, busy, busy! Right now, we are in a crisis as one of my children is battling cancer. I spend so much of my time taking him to doctor appointments and being in the hospital. I was always overweight by about 20 pounds, but have gained an additional 10 from sitting in hospitals and stress eating. I just began the program and have lost 8 pounds. This program has made it easy for me to eat healthy amidst a crazy busy life.
Thanks for the pricing info. I have tried Nutrisystem a couple of times in years past, and I’m eager to give it another shot. Hoping to lose 5 to 10 pounds, and don’t really want to stay on it for more than month or two at most. Has anyone else been able to do this? Thanks again.
The NutriSystem program has a number of online features, like a food log, weight tracking tools, chat rooms, and blogs. You can also email or call a NutriSystem registered dietitian or weight-loss counselor.
These days I am typically able to maintain a healthy weight just by eating the right foods (for me that’s a diet with a lot of fruits and vegetables) and getting enough exercise, which is also good for things like hypertension and high cholesterol – both of these issues are an absolute must for me.
Beware, you cannot quit Nutrisystem without a lot of hassle. I tried to quit their autodelivery program online and wasn’t allowed to. I was given a phone number to call. I got passed around a couple times until I got to the guy that tries to talk you into staying. So on 12/8/2016 I told him I wanted to quit, I didn’t want anymore deliveries and to remove my credit card information from their system. I told him when I signed up I used a fake number because I didn’t want any calls but yet my home phone is being blown up by you guys. I gave him both those numbers and told him to be 100% sure I wouldn’t get anymore delivers to my name or my address. He guarantee’d I would not. Even gave me a confirmation number: 179550527. On the 11th I get an email saying my order is ready to ship soon. I contacted Nutrisystem right away and they said it’s too late, it already shipped. I have several emails to them explaining all of the above plus spoke to a really rude pushy lady on the phone. They say they can’t take it back and will not refund my $375. Then they tried to accuse me of making a 2nd account in November and their representative only cancelled 1 account. I never created any 2nd account, I only updated my credit card information (which I regret). The only thing that should matter anyway is my name and address and the guarantee I was given that all orders were cancelled. Their only response is to fight it with my credit company. I have done that and the charges were reversed. However I want all of you to know what kind of people you are dealing with. The left doesn’t know what the right is doing in this company and their customer service doesn’t even deserve 1 star.
I soberly watched my friends enjoy limitless flows of beer and food. While entertaining to watch — similar to monkeys chasing each other at the zoo — it didn’t make for a delightful evening. According to Google Maps, I walked about two miles home that night from the bar for my daily exercise.
With Nutrisystem you get to chose from many foods that are already prepared for you. You also get a daily menu planner and a diary to log your success in. Nutrisystem also provides a website that includes articles, weight loss stories, blogs, chat rooms and a live counselor who is available 24 hours a day for support.
Technically, this kit is supposed to be used at the beginning of your weight-loss journey, but it might be handy for times when you feel like your progress has plateaued. It costs $100 and includes seven breakfasts, lunches and dinners as well as 14 weight-loss shakes.
