Then mid-morning I would have what they call a power fuel and a smart carb, which is some greek yogurt or cottage cheese with fresh fruit. Next I would have my lunch in a few hours. For lunch I would have a big salad with lots of veggies and a low-fat low-calorie dressing. My favorite dressings are Greek yogurt based and considered a limited extra on the Nutrisystem plan because they are 35 calories per serving. You can have up to 3 limited extras throughout the day.
I like the whole idea of Nutrisystem because with the plan you are still eating regular foods. You are given the tools you need to succeed and transition back into eating regular foods again once you have reached your goal.
#3…customer service is horrible. I talked to a counselor before I quit and he pretty much yelled at me and said to add even MORE food to my diet!! I’m trying to lose weight not eat more! Then when I cancelled, the first rep was insanely rude and hung up on me, refused to tell me how to ship my food back to ensure a proper refund, and then hung up in my face.
I have struggled with weight loss since I was a teenager. Now in my 40’s, I’m desperate to find a weight loss program that will help me to lose the weight so that I can live a healthy, long life. I’m great at exercising, but terrible at controlling my portions. Because of that struggle, I decided to try Nutrisystem because I need help with cutting down on the amount of food I am eating.

I allowed for two final snacks to finish my night a zesty Chex Mix rendition and about a dozen peanuts. The NutriSystem Zesty Herb Mix did absolutely nothing for me, forcing me to have my peanuts much earlier than I planned. Luckily, the peanuts, combined with about three glasses of water, held me over the rest of the night.
To make it easier for you to get your PowerFuel serving each day, Nutrisystem offers optional protein shakes that contain 15 grams of protein per serving and count as one PowerFuel. For other examples of PowerFuels, watch this quick video:
I tried this diet. It did work and it was convenient and I was not hungry. The bad part is that it gave me the worst stomach cramps and gas pains so I had to stop eating the food. I took all of my left over food to my place of employment to share with my co-workers.
“I subscribed to Right Size Smoothies for Monthly delivery. I really loved the stuff but had one huge complaint,” said Deborah of Fountain Inn, S.C., in a ConsumerAffairs review. “I subscribed at their website, the price was $10.00, not bad, but to my surprise it cost $20.00 shipping and handling. Total was $30.00.”
The size of the meals is considered by some as being on the small side. This is especially when compared with an overweight person’s regular meals. But you may have noticed that overweight people generally tend to eat more than they should. That means the regular meal size is larger than a thin person’s regular meal size.
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.
In this article, we’ll take a quick look at what the Nutrisystem diet entails, and the five most common complaints connected to it. So, if you thought about trying it, read these Nutrisystem bad review first, then make a decision.
Nutrisystem works for some people, though it doesn’t always work for everyone due to a variety of reasons including personal taste or allergy restrictions. Because they offer a refund, it’s possible to try the items with less risk to see if the diet would be right for you.
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.
There are a large number of impartial Nutrisystem reviews that can be easily found online. They are generally overwhelmingly positive in nature. During our research for this report, we noticed a few recurring themes within them.
Hello and welcome to TheDietDynamo.com. I’m Norman Schmidt, founder, and head reviewer for the site. Here you will find real reviews and information about some of the best diets, supplements, and health products on the market today. Learn more about me & our mission on our About Us page.
Here’s something I think everyone should know before they get into a nutria system plan. I’m on my second week and here is what I’ve figured out. They only give you about 65% of the food you will be eating. So after paying the $300 plus you still have to buy 4 servings of vegetables every day. Buy food to supplement 2 of their meals and one snack every day. Oh and supply the food for 2 flex meals each week. So if you have the time and know how to make healthy meals and portions I’d suggest just buying the ingredients yourself and making your own meals. You will save a good amount of money. I’m only going to do this one month I’ve already received because I’m fairly certain I can save between $150-$250 dollars doing it myself next month. Pus the food will taste better.
Both my husband and I did Nutrisystem for 2 months. I wanted to lose weight and he did it in solidarity – He lost 15 pounds and I can no longer fit into my jeans. Really, I am wider and a few pounds heavier than I was only 2 months ago. Perhaps it’s because my issue was not eating junk or over eating; Mine was not eating enough and I thought by spending the money on the food I would be more inclined to eat properly in regular intervals. I had, like all of us, seen those commercials where overweight women looked so amazing after doing Nutrisystem so you can imagine my dismay when my own body took a turn for the worse after trying it. As an fyi: I also stepped up my activity and had no problem with the food itself in terms of taste.We live within walking distance of an organic produce store so we had lots of fresh stuff to dress the food up with. Good luck to those who give it a shot – it did not work for me, but that certainly doesn’t mean it won’t for you.
Since the program is primarily focused on diet, the website offers few fitness features. There is an exercise log where you can track your daily physical activity, though. We particularly like that the log displays how many calories you burned when you input an exercise or activity. You can access this journal either through the Nutrisystem website or via the app, which is convenient for logging exercise activity while you’re out. You will have to find the motivation to work out on your own because, other than a few tips, there isn’t any real exercise program with this service, such as suggested exercises for your body type, workout videos or tutorials, which you’d find with higher-ranked weight loss plans like Diet.com.
I’ll be totally honest too – when that first shipment of meals came and I actually began following the plan, things were not easy. I had become accustomed to overeating at every meal, while also eating anything I wanted – lots of McDonald’s, Pizza Hut, and pretty much any other fast food option you can think of.
With all the different diets out there, I think there are too few options when it comes to what you can and cannot do. The Nutrisystem Silver plan lets me eat things I enjoy, and even came with a meal planner. For women like me who never did much cooking, the meals that come are easy to make and it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure them out. I don’t have to worry about the carbohydrates or any kind of points. And since there are no meetings, I don’t have to worry about what other people think about my weight.
A key difference is simply in the calories allowed. Women eat roughly 1500 calories on the diet and women are allowed 1200. The other difference is simply focus. It takes into account that a lot of guys eat hearty meals, like to feel full and basically don’t want to eat tofu. But they balance these hearty foods with healthy stuff like salad and broccoli. This blended combination seems to work.
The Nutrisystem plan does work though. When I was using the plan I lost about fifteen pounds. The plan was also very easy to follow. I did not have to weigh out food. I did not have to count calories. I did not have to figure out which foods to eat to lose weight. I just had to follow the instructions that came with the plan and eat the food that the plan provided me with.
The results of the visit came as a shock, to say the least. In no particular order I found out that I was now tipping the scales at more than 200 pounds (this after staying within about 165-170 lbs. for most of my college days), had high blood pressure, my cholesterol was through the roof, and some of the other markers on my blood test came back as “abnormal.”
Nutri-System Inc. was said to be negotiating with potential buyers Thursday as it sought a way out of the financial mess that forced it to abruptly close 280 company-owned diet centers across the country, including about 40 in the greater Los Angeles area. The company was thrown into corporate chaos late Wednesday when its bankers seized the troubled company’s cash and took control of its bank accounts. The company immediately sent its 1,800 employees home indefinitely.
I looked for so long for a diet plan that would help me to lose weight. After trying so many things that were meant for younger women with more resilient metabolisms, a friend of mine asked me what I knew about the Silver plan from Nutrisystem. I decided I would research it a little, because let’s face it, I’m not getting any younger.
One important feature Nutrisystem does have is trained weight loss counselors. These individuals are available to provide you with constant support as you strive to lose weight, and they can offer useful tips and guidance as you move back to eating normal food.
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.
Since they recommend that you combine their food with store-bought food, they are opening the door for user error as well as cheating. It is not a self-contained system where you won’t have to go to the grocery store. Many people think that by signing up for Nutrisystem you’ll be able to feed off of their food exclusively and be off the grid as far as restaurants, fast food places, and grocery shopping.
Every 28 days, your NutriSystem meals are delivered to your door. All of the meals now contain omega-3 fatty acids and soluble fiber to help promote heart health and regular digestion. The meals do not require refrigeration and can be heated up in just a few minutes by a microwave. You will also purchase a few grocery-store food items like fresh fruits and vegetables.
I exercise 4 days a week and eat all my meals planned by the meal planner. The plan helps me when and if I go out to eat, and since I don’t have anything to count, I feel more comfortable. I have a very healthy diet now, and try to get my friends who need to lose weight to join too. There are so many people I think that could benefit from using the Nutrisystem meal plans, and it is so easy there’s no way to mess up.
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.
I’m not one to usually comment in threads, but thought it appropriate to give back since I read the reviews before starting NS and found them very helpful. First of all, I’d like to congratulate anyone who has lost weight and even taking the first step in doing so and getting on the road to better health.
My husband is an extremely picky eater, and he absolutely adores this food. One of the greatest things about this is that I don’t have to spend time cooking or doing dishes. Eating the Nutrisystem prepared food has given me my evenings back. While I love the taste of the food, it is the convenience that is so appealing to me. I feel like we are eating restaurant quality food every single day, three meals a day. It is amazing!
