Hey Linda, 7 pounds in 7 days is pretty amazing, congrats! I think most people are thinking they could just as easily go prepare and cook their own meals, but you’re right that unless they have detailed nutritional knowledge and accurate measuring/weighing equipment in their kitchen, they’re going to be hard pressed to match the diet meals provided by Nutrisystem, even though what they make themselves will almost certainly taste better, but be higher in calories.
a woman i know was doin it and either she didn’t have the will power or the food jus wasn’t enough, but she’d often eat more food than what was given to her. a girlfriend of mine told me about medifast, it’s like nutrisystem only much older and not as hyped up as nutrisystem. she told me that the only hard part about it was not drinkin alcohol when her other friends wanted to party. she’s been on it for weeks and has lost 20lbs. whatever you do read into it as much as you can. i hope the links below are helpful. good luck to you~!
Nutrisystem claims that if you eat their food you’ll lose weight. The way they go about it is by providing foods that are low on the Glycemic Index, have smaller portion sizes, and they encourage you to eat frequently throughout the day.
If you get Nutrisystem from Costco.com, often times they have a sale and you get $100.00 worth Nutrisystem gift cards for $59.00. I used one of these each month to supplement my Nutrisystem order. That saved me $80.00.
Hey Beth, all comments are published, positive or negative as long as they are helpful in some way. You’re doing the right thing in talking to the counselor over any concerns–they’re there to help after all!
It’s been a while since NutriSystem felt that sexy, too. The veteran diet-industry player was bankrupt a decade ago, then reinvented itself as an Internet distributor in 1999, struggling to sell its prepackaged meals through banner ads on Web sites. It took Net entrepreneur Michael J. Hagan to turn things around, ironically by shifting NutriSystem’s ad budget from the Web to traditional media.
I have just finished my 2nd week of ns and have lost 8 pounds. I love everything about this program. The food is pretty good. There are a couple things that haven’t tasted so great but all in all I love ns.
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!).
Then there was a trip to the beach. Now, when I’m sitting out on the beach, I love to snack. It’s usually chips or cookies but not this time. I snacked on lots of fruit and veggies. I felt good about myself.
The Core Plan is based on the science of energy density. Energy density refers to the amount of calories in a given weight of food. Foods that are considered low energy dense foods have a small amount of calories for a large volume of food (for example, vegetable soups, vegetables, and fruit). High energy dense foods provide a lot of calories for a small amount of food (for example, oils, butter, cream sauce). The Core Plan provides a “balanced diet by centering on a list of healthy foods that keep you full longer.”
After being on Nutrisystem for 6 months, I decided to change my plan to the “weekends on my own” plan, also known as “weekends off”. Does Nutrisystem weekends off work? Yes, it does work. With this plan, I picked 20 days of meals instead of 28 which left me to defend for myself two days a week. To transition off of Nutrisystem, I needed to learn to apply my own foods to my diet that are equivalent to Nutrisystem meals.

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’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.
