My favorite food is the cheese ravioli and the meatloaf with the mashed potatoes. I feel full when I’m done eating, and I get the energy I need to exercise and go about my daily business. So far I have lost 31 pounds and still counting.
Nineteen dieters have filed lawsuits claiming the Nutri-System weight-loss program led to gallbladder disease and accusing the company of fraud and negligence. The plaintiffs are women from the Miami and Ft. Lauderdale areas ranging in age from 17 to 60, one of their attorneys, Robert J. Fiore, said today. They filed separate lawsuits seeking unspecified damages Monday in Dade County Circuit Court.
One of the things I think is absolutely great about Nutrisystem is the literature they provide with your 1st order. I received a restaurant guide (used it twice already) and a menu book that includes approved foods you can use to supplement your menu at the grocery store. I am doing the 5 day flex plan, but am contemplating upgrading to the full 7-day program as it really is a no brainer and I am concerned about having the liberty to choose my own meals on the weekends (that has proven to be very dangerous!).
Norman, you seem to know the NS diet very well. I have been on this diet around 7 years ago and I see a few new changes this time. My order has arrived and I unpacked my Turbo Box yet did not keep that food separate, and now i am really unsure of what was in it for my first week….any help?
I started with NS about five weeks ago. I went into this program in wanting to loose at least 15-20pds to get to my goal weight. I have lost 5pds so far and I try to exercise on my treadmill at least three times a week. I feel great since I started on NS. I use to have alot of bloating and swelling all over and in my hands. Since I have been on NS I no longer have that issue. Regular foods are so high in sodium that NS provides the best food contents of sodium, sugar, carbs, calories necessary for this diet and for your health. Now when I eat regular foods, I can’t tolerate the salty taste in them. When I first tried NS, some of the foods I didn’t like but I didn’t order them on my next shipment. Most of the food was pretty good. Most people are use to the sodium and seasoning in regular foods. You have to get use to some of the bland tastes for NS eliminates alot of the salt. I recommend NS for someone who is seriously wanting to loose weight. It does work. I tried other diets and never was successful in loosing a pound.
Also, if you use Nutrisystem for one month, and then decide you want to cancel after that, there are other routes you can go to avoid paying the early termination fee. For example, you can switch your order to just Turbo Shakes for your second month, which costs about $79.
I am so glad to hear you say that! How can anybody eat this stuff. It is foul! Most of it has no taste at all. I am not a picky eater but I could not eat this stuff. I actually threw all away. It was the biggest waste of money. If you want to loose weight, you need to get real, exercise, eat healthy foods and reduce your portions. It is about learning how to eat and being healthy for once and for all.
One of the biggest issues with diet plans like this is that they often provide the consumer with limited meal options. Nutrisystem has a vast array of items on their menu which ensures that “burn out” (aka boredom) is highly unlikely.
NutriSystem is a well-respected weight loss program that has helped many lose weight. Its three tailored women’s programs combine the success of the NutriSystem plans with dietary requirements specific to meeting the weight loss goals of women. Since it does all the cooking, measuring and calorie-counting for you, the NutriSystem weight loss programs do not teach you long-term healthy eating behaviors.
In 2017, Nutrisystem successfully tested the Lean 13 Program, a diet plan for even better results than the previous flagship of the company, the Turbo 10 program. Lean 13 delivers what the title says: up to 13 pounds of weight loss and 7 inches of “waist loss” within the first month of starting the program. Lean 13 is a dietitian approved mix of high protein and low carbohydrate foods that can help you to retain muscle mass while reducing your fat intake. Nutrisystem says they has experimented behind the scenes with different combinations of meals to optimize this plan. All of the meal choices within Lean 13 correspond with the top findings in the experiments, claims the company. On Lean 13, Nutrisystem claims that you get meals and snacks to ensure that you never go hungry. NutriCrush® bars and TurboShakes™ are meant to support your digestive health with good probiotic bacteria, reduce belly bloat, and create an even more effective, tasty weight loss program. Aside from the special snacks and meals, you also get comprehensive support from weight loss coaches, certified diabetes educators and registered dietitians seven days a week.
I just completed my first two weeks and I’ve lost 9LBS the first week and another 4LBS in week two for a total of 13LBS. I have been very pleased with the food (personalized my plan selections) and the only negative was I was very gassy and some pretty painful stomach pains for a couple days during my second week. I did experience constipation for the first week and very well could have made a mistake by eating more meals with higher fiber content to combat this which may have created the stomach pain. I did take GasX which has solved the problem. My advice would be to stay strong, adhere to the plan and drink 8 to 10 16oz bottles of water per day. The results thus far have been amazing and I am well on my way to achieving my goals by the summer. VERY EXITED!
If you want to add more fruits and vegetables to the foods that are delivered the company just launched the NutriSystem Select program where fresh frozen foods are delivered to your house. This program expands the food choices and also improves the overall health profile of the food. We would observe that going with the Select option is the best one for long term health and long term weight loss success.
Reviewer “Angela” said she decided to order one kit, check it out and if it worked, she’d sign up on the Nutrisystem website. “I ended up losing 11.1 pounds in the first month using various boxes purchased at Walmart and without excercise.[sic] I just signed up for nutrisystem on their website a little over a week ago and received my first month of food a few days later. Good luck if you decide to try this. So far it has worked for me!” 
Once you reach your goal weight, you gradually add calories over a 6-week transition period. Medifast encourages following its “3 & 3 Plan” (three meals plus three meal replacements) indefinitely to keep off the weight.
My favorite meal of the day is breakfast. I love to sink my teeth into a big bagel or English muffin in the morning. I also love cereal. But, I know I need to lose weight, which is why I decided to try Nutrisystem. Not one to want to spend much time in the kitchen, this plan seemed to be the most practical one for me.
They also encourage you to eat fruits and vegetables with the packaged meals, and if you have read the work of Dr. Joel Fuhrman you understand clearly the association if fruits and vegetables to long term weight loss.
They try to rip you off when quit their auto delivery program. Very very unpleasant people to deal with. They shipped me stuff 3 days after I had already cancelled and had a confirmation number stating I cancelled. They refused to turn the shipment around or to take it back and are trying to create some kind of lie that I created a 2nd account in November and they only cancelled one account. The only thing I did in November was update my credit card expiration date (which I regret). Now they are trying to scam me out of an extra $375. If I guaranteed no more shipments are coming to my name or my address that should be the end of the story, not with them! I am fighting them through my credit card company but please be aware of whatever traps they have in store for any of you.
NutriSystem has tapped into the mindset of the constant dieter. Not many want to spend time in group therapy or even be counseled one-on-one. Counselors are available by phone or online chat, but less than 20% of clients use them. Most seek support on the message boards of the company’s Web site. Dieters on portion-control plans like NutriSystem’s lose 5% of body weight after one year if they stick to it, according to many studies.
When you’re following the Nutrisystem program, you can expect to eat between 1200 and 1500 calories per day. They stick to this range because research has shown that this is a healthy way to lose between 1 and 2 pounds each week.
According to our research, Nutrisystem is predominantly used by women. However, despite this, there is no shortage of men using the system either. There are several plans specifically designed for male calorific intake levels that anecdotally achieve excellent results.
To get it in the right perspective, all you need to do is look at the total price you’re paying for the diet. Then deduct from that what you’d normally spend on the total amount of food you would eat for 28 days.
Some of the food is quite bland in taste, but this is only my personal opinion. I am a very picky eater and am used to especially spicy foods with lots of flavor, like Thai food. The chicken and pasta in cacciatore sauce was not to my liking, as it just tasted so bland to me. But, to my great relief, there are other meals like the sweet and sour chicken with noodles that is to die for. I am going to complete my 7 day program until I reach my ideal weight. At this rate, it won’t take me long.
Hey Mary, its best not to worry over a temporary stall. The more you stress over it the harder to will seem to get back on track. So many people quit when they hit a plateau when they should’ve persevered and gone past it to success!
One complaint that many dieters-to-be have is that they don’t have the time or the knowledge of what to cook for themselves in order to lose weight. What a diet food delivery service does is fill that gap by providing high quality health foods to your door that you just have to heat up and eat.
In 1972, it was maxi-dresses, Easy Bake Ovens, Watergate, half a dollar for a gallon of gas, and Nutrisystem was born. Then a weight loss counseling service in brick-and-mortar centers in Pennsylvania, it was successful from the start.
Extras are also add-ons you might use to add some flavor to your foods. Extras, however, contain between 11 and 35 calories per serving. To avoid loading up on too many added calories, we recommend limiting your Extras to three servings per day.
Nutrisystem is the only weight loss program I have ever participated in. I have tried counting calories and that does work for me. I just never stuck to it long enough to see any significant results. I have an addictive personality. Food has been my drug for a long time. I knew it was going to be difficult to kick the habit but Nutrisystem gave me the tools I needed to be successful.
