Ok first of all… Come on people with the bad reviews its a DIET… Its not suppose to taste amazing… It does taste fairly good thou. I loved the breakfast and lunch bars so far I was worried it wouldnt fill me but it was ok. I thought I would hate the beans and rice lunch but it was actually pretty good. I had the alfredo noodle dinner tonight and added some seasonings to it to help the taste.. I didnt like it but it was edible… Im alittle worried about the pizza… I think im going to put my pineapple on the pizza and some red onions… and bake it instead for nooking it. Over all Im very happy with this. I love that its a 5 day kit so i can do my diet during the week and just watch what i eat on weekends with my family. 🙂 I really do recommend this!
The most controversial part of this diet is the severe fat restriction. The American Heart Association recommends a diet with 25% to 35% of your calories from fat. The Pritikin Principle requires you consume less than 10% of your calories from fat. Besides providing taste to your diet, dietary fat has other functions, and 10% may be too low to meet your needs. There has been a considerable amount of research showing the health benefits of omega-3 fats, including protecting your heart. The American Heart Association now recommends that people without coronary heart disease eat a variety of omega-3 fat-containing fish at least twice a week and that those with coronary heart disease consume one gram of omega-3 fats per day. Dietary fat is also needed to transport the fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E, and K. Without fat to transport them, they will not be able to serve their functions in your body.
Well, i hve only been on nutrisystem for oe week i finished it tonight. The oly meal I could eat without gettingsick was any meal tat was jut a little chocolat bar. and even then it wasnt filling. Ths plan is not quick and easy, unless you are countng calories and adding t very meal you are not getting proper nurtition at a minimum we shold eat 1000 clories a ay and you eat near 700 on a good dy some times 500 if you were to add anything. busy o the g people in a hurr are not gingto be satisfied with the lack of food. just poping in a persrvitave filled dish into te microwave wont do anything to fullfill your hunger. It maks me gassy sick t my stomach and have irregular bowel movements. Nutrisystem is a NO GO!
One day while exercising and listening to music, I began to get emotional and felt alone. I felt like everyone had abandoned me. I was even snubbed by some of my overweight friends and family. It was not always positive comments I’d hear. Some of the people I work with picked on me. They would make comments that I was not eating enough as they would literally bring me biscuits and Cinnamon rolls while saying “you know you want this” or “come on, one will not hurt you”. I would just toss it in the trash and carry on with my day.
I know it’s a challenge to spend money to lose weight, especially when the food isn’t always the best. I dealt with that. I used the money we spent as a motivation to continue. I knew if I went off the plan that I might as well be throwing money in the trashcan. That’s the last thing I wanted. That being said, if you’re committed and work at it the Nutrisystem diet plan is a good way to try and accomplish your weight loss goals.
my daughter went from a size 24 to a size 8 in an 2 year period she is 5′ 10″ and looks great, my son decided to do this diet and went from 230 to 190 he is 6′ 3″ lost it in 6 months. they stuck to the plan, told me it wasnt the best but it worked. they both modified their diets and are still at this weight 1 year later for both
Hey Cathleen, you’re doing just great with a weekly average of 1lb/week. That’s about the norm and a healthy rate of weight loss. Sure, exercising will help boost your metabolism some, so get regular with it and do as much as you can. You should see a gradual increase in fat loss as your body gets slimmer and firms up. Diet plus exercise is absolutely the best way to do this!
My current plan is to increase movement (with my trusty Fitbit egging me on) and decrease food intake. My husband’s lost about 60 pounds over the last 5 years by cutting out a lot of sugar and drastically reducing his portion size of regular foods. So now I do things like split a beer with him at night, or split a hot dog. It’s slow, but I’m seeing progress.
Nutrisystem has helped me so much with the eating part of that. Because the food is already made and correctly portioned, I don’t worry about eating too much. The food tastes really great, and never once have I felt like I needed to eat something else after I have finished one of their entrées. I especially love the pasta dinner dishes. I feel like I can now eat pasta without feeling guilty; which is a nice change. Plus, I know that spending the money on the plan is helping me stick to it because I don’t want the money to go to waste. That really has helped me a lot.
You can lose weight on Nutrisystem since the whole premise is calorie restriction and portion control. The recipe for any successful weight loss program is to eat fewer calories than you burn. As you burn more calories than you consume, your body will start to shed excess pounds so you can reach your goal weight. By providing already portioned meals and snacks, the idea is that you will restrict your caloric intake by eating the foods provided by Nutrisystem. In addition to the food Nutrisystem provides, you’re responsible for supplementing it with fruits and vegetables, however, so it’s important to make low-calorie choices.
But, I’m happy to reassure you and give you some facts. First, lets talk about the ingredients. will not give you the list of all the ingredients (only 2) if you want to know more – here’s the link for the detailed Nutrisystem Diet Review 2017
I am very pleased with my food and the staff. Very friendly and knowledgeable. Always willing to help. I had a question that I emailed and someone got right back to me within a very short time, I did not have to wait 1-2 days.
Yes, it comes with 28 days worth of breakfast, lunch, snacks, and dinner. You get to choose what you want when you order the food. Most of the snacks are good, my favorite is the cookies. The cakes are sort of blah tasting. Muffins for breakfast is good. I didn’t like the meals with the meat in the like meatloaf or any beef, so in my next order I took them out. The burger patty and chicken patty was ok.
My weight loss had slowed down to losing an average on one pound a week. It was better than a gain. I wished to lose more. I called and talked to a Nutrisystem counselor. They told me to just keep doing what I’was doing and make sure I got in all the foods required on the plan. I was eating every three hours. That’s six small meals a day along with the Nutrisystem meals and I was adding four servings of vegetables each day. It seems like a lot of food but the snacks are tiny. It’s like a tablespoon of nuts or a piece of cheese. Small amounts of healthy foods.
I started the plan on the 1/8/2010. So far I lost 10lbs. I like the results. Because I had a baby 7 months ago I can’t make it to the gym. I’m not exercising right now but I do plan on it. The food isn’t that tasty, especially the turkey hot dogs. But the muffins and sweets are very good. Plus, you still have to add on to the diet plan which can be very expensive. I plan on staying on the diet until I lose 30lbs. Overall, It works!
A Chicago investment firm took over management of debt-ridden Nutri-System Inc. on Wednesday after a bankruptcy court judge dismissed a trustee appointed to run the weight-loss company. Heico Acquisitions, a firm that invests in troubled companies, will run Nutri-System Inc. for about a month while deciding whether to buy it, former trustee John T. Carroll said. The move resolves, at least for now, the financial chaos surrounding Blue Bell, Pa.-based Nutri-System.
why after losing 50 lbs do we still have to look at maria osmonds tammi bakers made up face on every network 20 to 30 times a day. doesnt nutri system have any more broke celebrity losers they can replace her pastsy face with . this must be the only work she can get i mean my god go do a lifetime network gig or something. this is why i use jenny craig.
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.
I am in my third month of ordering from NutriSystem,” wrote Cate of St. Louis. “I order online and pay extra for the privilege of ordering the meals I want rather than doing the automatic ship where they choose the meals. For two of the three months I have ordered, they have shipped me substituted items, and I quote here from the letter that arrives with my order:
Another key finding was that the addition of low intensity resistance exercise to a hypocaloric diet can preserve lean mass. The researchers believe they have demonstrated this for the first time. The researchers also confirm the potential therapeutic value of this form of exercise in obese individuals who are unable or unwilling to perform high intensity resistance exercise therapy. Maintaining muscle mass and strength is another import health goal in older women.
If you had read my review here before purchasing, you’d see I included that information quite clearly. It’s important that everyone knows about this rule because I often hear from folks who thought they could get a cheap deal for a month and then cancel without paying for any more. But that’s not how it works and without knowing, those customers get a surprise they didn’t expect when the company charges their card for a second month and ships the food.
Limited calories. The calorie count is designed to help you lose a pound or two each week on this diet program. The exception is the “Lean 13” plan on which women can lose up to 13 pounds and 7 inches in the first month while men can expect to lose 15 pounds and 7 inches..
I tried Nutri System almost two years ago and lost 22 pounds pretty quickly. If I need it again, I’ll try the vegetarian meals as I hear they’re just as tasty and easy to prepare as the Basic Plan. I gave the Basic Plan 4 stars because one shipment of food I received was missing two snack bars. Be sure to count your food when you get it to ensure everything is there.
Hi Kavitha, thank you for your inquiry. This diet program only ships to United States addresses at present. I’m sorry it is not available internationally but I believe the additional shipping costs would make it very expensive and therefore not attractive to dieters in other countries around the world.
The program is really simple to follow and my carb, sugar and salt cravings are gone. Today my wife came home with a cookie for my son she bought at Starbucks. It looked so good, so I decided to have the NS chocolate chip cookie for my dessert and it was very satisfying. I love this program!
If you’ve been on other diets, you can expect much of the same with this Nutrisystem 5-day plan. It’s easy enough to add in some protein and veggies, the food isn’t bad, and I wasn’t hungry between meals. The bars taste like all the other bars, the dinners were okay…except for the Chicken Alfredo. Smelled bad, looked bad, tasted bad. Haven’t had the Rotini yet, and after last night, I’m a little afraid. I was disappointed to find, however, that the Nutrisystem D 5-day plan (marketed to diabetics) contained all but two of the same meal choices. I bought the Diabetic plan to try next week, hoping there would be different meals with lower carb content (more like Atkins bars and meals). Everything was exactly the same except the Chocolate Muffin was exchanged for the Blueberry Muffin, and the Chocolate Peanut Butter Bar was exchanged for the Trail Mix Bar. In any case, it’s a great jump start to get your eating under control, and I will do it next week, but skip the Chicken Alfredo!
The main thing that people worry about when enrolling is that they will get tired of the food. With more than 150 items, that shouldn’t happen right away. If you are on the plan for extended periods of time, though, you may start getting bored. Luckily, you can enhance your meals with extras from the grocery store.
