the plan has been added to_I think the silver plan is probably the least carbs and doesn’t give me hot flashes_the advanced plan has potatoes and other stuff which contributes negatively to my situation
A 2015 study in the Annals of Internal Medicine comparing various commercial weight-loss programs found that Nutrisystem participants lost at least 3.8 percent more weight after three months on the program than a control group that received education and counseling. The authors call diets like Nutrisystem “promising,” but say more research is needed on their long-term outcomes.
Nutrisystem has been around for a long time, and there’s a reason for that: the program has worked for millions of people over the years. Their commercials are very appealing and make you want to try their plan because you hear the testimonies from real people who have lost weight with Nutrisystem.
A carrot cake snack I received was moldy. I am a long-term customer and have never had a problem with a meal before this. I emailed and CSR responded quickly. Promised to look into it, and ordered me a replacement snack free of charge, thanks!
I was not in the mind set to plan every meal I ate, with Nutrisystem it\\\’s planned for you. … with diets so i don’t really have anything to compare it to, but it does work. … It isn’t the cheapest diet out there but it does work. …
Other company data shows decreased blood pressure, total and bad LDL cholesterol levels, and triglycerides, a fatty substance that in excess has been linked to heart disease, for some dieters on the program. If you’re overweight or obese and shed some pounds on Nutrisystem, you’ll undoubtedly do your heart a favor – weight loss is commonly associated with decreased blood pressure, cholesterol and risk of heart disease.

My NutriSystem counselor told me most men in the program lose 1 to 2 pounds per week. At that estimate, I should be four to eight pounds lighter 28 days from now. If the food is as revolting as its severest critics claim, I may lose more than that.
Once you choose and customize your plan, you order a month’s worth of food. Ordering is easy and convenient since you can pick and choose what you like and order it from the comfort of your own home. The food available is chosen by your plan choice and come prepared for you. No need for counting calories and carbs and there are no points to keep track of.
I started with Bistro MD, but after losing my job I couldn’t afford it any more so I over to Nutrisystem men’s basic plan. I have been on the plan for about one month now and have already lost seven pounds (which wasn’t happening with Bistro MD). I’m happy to say that losing weight has never been easier. The Nutrisystem plan is very easy to follow and simple to understand.
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.
I’ve been on NS now for 3 weeks. The food is absolutely TERRIBLE! I had bad gas for the first week. That went away the second week. Now the third week I’ve got bad stomach cramps every time I eat the food that comes in the tins. I think they use Fiber as the filler/thickener for all their foods. When I signed up, there was some small sneaky wording about “auto-renew”, meaning after one month of food, they will automatically ship you another month’s worth. I luckily found this out and had to call to cancel the ‘autorenew’. Unfortunately, they charged me another $57.00 to cancel the autorenew. I would NOT recommend this diet food to anyone. Way too expensive, food is bad, causes bad gas and cramps and too much fine print.
Everyone’s body is different and most people will have a metabolism that actually will try to adjust for weightloss – especially if you were taking in a lot of calories prior to a low calorie diet. Your body will go into “starvation mode” which means it will actually work harder to store the food thinking you are starting to actually starve. That is why if you cut back on food and exercise more it will general take 1-3 months to change your metabolic rate. FYI.
Staphylococcus or Staph is a group of bacteria that can cause a multitude of diseases. Staph infections can cause illness directly by infection or indirectly by the toxins they produce. Symptoms and signs of a Staph infection include redness, swelling, pain, and drainage of pus. Minor skin infections are treated with an antibiotic ointment, while more serious infections are treated with intravenous antibiotics.
Nutrisystem meals are pre-made and engineered to deliver only a certain amount of calories per day based on your sex and age. Carbohydrates, which make up most of the diet, are low-glycemic. That means they are the type of carbohydrates that break down slowly and help control your appetite. Since everything is done for you, all you need to do is stick to the plan and you will lose weight.
Just want to say – this was the easiest, fastest way I ever tried to lose weight! Just as the commercial says “eat the food, lose the weight!” The food was actually good, just not much of it, and I WAS NEVER HUNGRY! I HAVE LOST 40 POUNDS IN 3 MONTHS!! As you diet, you begin to relearn how to eat, so I did not even need the transition info. I still buy the shake because they are great mid-morning to squash hunger until lunch.If you are thinking of doing this DO NOT HESITATE. It works! And the payoff is amazing! I have received so many compliments and queries about the program, and I can’t say enough good about it!!
Ruined your health? Wow, that’s quite a dramatic statement to make. You had a bladder infection, you weren’t poisoned. LOL! You should have done your research before you ate “so many preservatives”. Know this, Nutrisystem has one of the most robust and advanced Research & Development labs across the food & drug category. I now this because my employer, an executive search firm, placed their SVP, R&D. You should have been drinking at least 64 oz of water BEFORE you even went on NS, if you are concerned about your health. Again, I shake my head at those of you who complain and blame right out of the gate. Good luck!
NOTE: This is a blog about two guys attempting to lose weight over a six-week period. They kicked off their weight loss “strategies” on Jan 10. ‘So easy, a caveman can do it.’ Not only one of the greatest slogans when the ads first came out a few years ago, but also my new motto on my quest to lose 25 pounds in 12 weeks. I don’t want to think. Many people think I’ve achieved that goal already (long ago). But when it comes to dieting, I don’t want to guess.
Fullness: Hunger shouldn’t be a problem. Entrees will likely be smaller than what you’re used to, but you supplement them with protein, fiber-packed produce and veggies (some even in unlimited amounts), which generally keep you feeling fuller longer. Eating at regular intervals throughout the day should also keep tummy growls at bay.
The 2013 study found that obese diabetics on the company’s “D” program reduced their A1C significantly more than dieters assigned to diabetes self-management education. The study also found that 72 percent of the Nutrisystem group met the American Diabetes Association goal of tight blood sugar control – an A1C level of less than 7 percent – at six months, compared with only 44 percent of the control group. What’s more, 28 percent of Nutrisystem dieters reduced the intensity of their diabetes medication regimen at the six-month mark, while only 4 percent of control dieters did.
I am in the same boat as you, 5 ft, 150lbs. Doc told me to eat 1800 cals and exercise 30 min. a day. I’ve been doing that, but staying the same. I’m going to try eating 1600 to 1700 cals and hopefully that will work.
One last point: If you do wish to cancel, you MUST do it done by phone (the phone number is clearly printed on the home page of the official website). You cannot cancel via the website. That’s just a heads up!
This diet offers a great 3-month jump start to get you on the road to weight loss. But the real question is whether you can continue to lose weight when you are no longer relying on the prepackaged foods.
One challenge that you may face is maintaining the diet without all the help you got through the program. However, if you can transition back into eating “normal” food while keeping in mind what you have learned through healthy eating during the program, you should have no problem. Once you reach your body weight goal, you will likely be more apt to maintain healthy habits to keep your healthier appearance and feeling. 
I hated this diet. The food is TERRIBLE. I thought it would save me money because I was eating out at restaurants a lot, but you still need to add fresh fruits & vegetables- which are the most expensive part of grocery shopping. The food is processed and disgusting and can’t be good for you. You will lose weight if you follow it, but you will be miserable watching the people around you eating food that doesn’t taste like it was made at a factory that manufactures pet food. If you want the portion control that Nutrisystem offers, save yourself the trouble and buy some LeanCuisines at the grocery store. It’s just not something that you can stick to for life.
Not good. I have been the program 2 weeks. Started with turo.10. Lost 1 lb. spoke with rep. Also, do not care about food allergies and way too much sodium in food. I was told I can upgrade and pay additional 19.95 to customize plan. Also, if I cancel, I have to pay $99. I told the rep all they are interested in is selling their products and making money. No consideration is made for food allergies. I never ate so much chocolate which I am allergic to milk chocolate and peanuts. Pizza, my Italian mother and grandmother would say, is NOT dinner. I am very disappointed in this program especially since my endocrinologist recommended it. The rep told me that since I was under 5′ tall and wanted to drop 8 lbs. it would take longer and slower. This is not mentioned in the ads nor about the high sodium content nor be aware of food allergies. Not happy. Will not recommend this plan and I told the rep that.

Unfortunately, some people pay for the first month with a nice discount and free shipping, then decide to stop and try to cancel their order without paying for a second month. Now that you’re aware of the way the system works, you can see that doing this can bring all kinds of trouble.
