Hey Cory, congrats on your success. That’s an impressive load of weight to lose in just under 4 months, you must feel so proud. Thanks for sharing your experience with us here and good luck for the future!
Unfortunately, when it comes to helping patients lose weight, many physicians don’t do much beyond nagging. If you’re lucky, yours may outline a regimen, refer you to a dietitian nutritionist or recommend a local program. If not, you’ll be on own.
Nutrisystem is well hyped because of all the celebrity endorsements they’ve managed to line up, as well as the extensive amount of advertising they do. It is probably the best recognized, and most used diet delivery program on the market today.
Thanks for the comment, Heather…It definitely works when you follow the program correctly. $300 is a commitment, so just make sure you’re ready to follow through and stick with the program for at least a month or two. Best of luck if you decide to try it!
I bought the Nutrisystem Homestyle box and absolutely loved it. The convenience of all the meals apart from the extras is a huge plus for me. I like simplicity and eliminating guess work when I’m dieting. I lost 5 lbs in 5 days. I bought a second box and look forward to see how much more I have lost. I have tried every diet you can name. Name it, I have done it. The tastes of these meals were just fine for me. I only have 10 more lbs to lose, so I will probably just keep buying from Walmart, until I reach my goal. This was a great idea for those who have been wanting to give NutriSystem a try.

Our diets are meant to have a balance of protein, carbohydrates, and fat. When you consume too little of one of these nutrients it means you are consuming too much of another nutrient. Most people who follow a very low-fat diet end up consuming an excess amount of carbohydrates. Too much of any nutrient can cause health problems. The Dietary Reference Intake (DRI) established the need for each one of these nutrients based on research for optimal health and weight. The DRI set the dietary goals at 45% to 65% from carbohydrates, 20% to 35% from fat, and 10% to 35% from protein. If you follow the Pritikin Principle it would be best to adjust your intake to meet the DRI guidelines.
The app also offers daily tips and inspirational quotes from the Nutrisystem team, along with activity suggestions. As well, it syncs with Fitbit, Jawbone, and Apple Health so you can get a full and comprehensive look at your weight loss plan and how you’re doing.
It took a lot of dedication, determination and discipline to get where I am. It helps when you have support. Again, my husband has been my biggest support. Between my Husband and Nutrisystem, it’s like having my own personal coach and chef. I feel so much healthier already and I’m ready to face what’s ahead with a new outlook. I have had a lot of positive effects from my weight loss so far.
So a typical day on Nutrisystem would go like this. I get up and exercise for 30 minutes to an hour. I drink coffee and water after my workout to get my body moving. Then after a shower I get ready for work and when I get to work I have breakfast. Breakfast is a protein shake and a breakfast entrée. Most mornings I would have a muffin with a protein shake. Super yummy and it doesn’t feel like a diet at all.
I have to echo what other posters have said. I’m not going to say I *never* feel hungry on this diet, just that the munchies are much more subdued than they were when I was skipping breakfast and lunch to lose weight (bad idea). I also have to say that three days into this diet and I already feel like I have more energy, probably because I’m eating through the day and not skipping meals, and my muscles aren’t protesting all the crap I was eating before.
One specialty diet that Nutrisystem doesn’t currently offer is a plan for those who are gluten-free. They don’t offer any gluten-free certified foods at this time. While they do offer several items that don’t contain gluten and can theoretically create a wheat-free menu, the chance of cross-contamination is too high until they verify this with an official gluten-free certification. Those with other severe allergies — or particular diets for medical reasons — should be mindful of this as well.
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 Zone diet promotes eating a balance of each nutrient, without severely restricting calories. Protein increases your feeling of fullness, helping you to avoid eating between meals, and there is a guide to what kind of fat you can consume. Healthy fats are encouraged in place of the saturated and trans fats. The calorie restriction will help you lose weight.
And to keep the weight off, you’ll need to transition successfully into the maintenance phase. While limitations ease up at that point, you will need to learn to live with and accept some restrictions in your diet to make it work for the long-term.
Hey Candie, it’s great to hear you’re doing really well–32lbs in 2 months is awesome! And that you like the diet and you’re fired up to maintain it to lose even more is really inspiring. Come back and give us an update sometime soon, please!
