I have read almost all of your comments and have found both the positives and the negatives to be informative. I have not tried NS before but I have decided to jump in the pond. I received my shipment today and I will start my plan tomorrow. I am excited and hope to send you a success e-mail in a few weeks!
I am not one for exercise, so the weight loss plans where they say you have to exercise 5 times a week really turn me off. I know that Nutrisystem encourages exercise, but in two weeks I have lost 5 pounds without exercising at all.
Nutrisystem, headquartered in Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, is a commercial provider of weight loss products and services. Initially, the company offered weight loss counseling and products in brick and mortar centers. In 1999, the company moved to a direct-to-consumer business model, selling its products and programs on the Internet and through a call center via 1-800 numbers.
I joined the Nutrisystem men’s basic plan. The plan is easy to follow and comes with instructions on how to do so. I don’t have to prepare my food I just have to decide what I want to eat off of Nutrisystem’s menu and plan my food for the day accordingly, which is easy to do because the Nutrisystem plan comes with a planner that teaches you how to plan meals for the day.
Look, I’ll be the first to admit that the Nutrisystem diet isn’t easy…at first, that is. If you’re used to eating large meals or feasting on McDonalds and Taco Bell regularly, yeah, the Nutrisystem meal plan is going to be an adjustment. But, if you stick with it for about a week, your body should adjust, and this new way of eating will gradually get easier and easier. You’re going to have to make this adjustment if you truly want to make a change, so why not let a proven system like Nutrisystem help you get there?
I delayed trying Nutrisystem because everyone here said it tastes so bad. However, so far, I find this to not be the truth. I joined in the 40% off special they were having for at least 2 months auto-ship. Also, if you get this diet you might want to get some non-fat powder milk, Stevia, natural peanut butter, and frozen veggies and fruits (without sugar). Thatis, if you want to not have to keep going to the store. They recommend eating veggies and fruits with their program, plus Nutrisystem’s customer service and counselors are awesome. Apparently this seller is just selling a card, and I don’t know that this is such a bad thing. THE PRODUCTS DO NOT TASTE THAT BAD AT ALL FOR DIET FOOD, AND EVERYTHING IS IMPROVING IN TASTE, OR IS NOT NEAR AS BAD AS REVIEWERS MENTIONED THROUGHOUT THE INTERNET! Also their menu in the Core program offers a customized menu. After your first shipment you know what you like and don’t like, but just stick with the program. I’ve heard and seen one too many people lose weight on this diet. Will try to keep you posted on my results. It’s not just about a diet, it is about livelihood and well-being. If you do not see an update from me in a few months, please remind me, and I will tell you whatever will help or how good it worked.
Each plan comes with food chosen to supply the right combinations of nutrients and keep you healthy while you lose weight and fuel your body. Each item will have different ingredients to accomplish this. Some highlights of what the meals focus on are:
I would have given NS 5 stars, but I was overcharged $10 one month. I called up customer support and they corrected the bill and gave me a $100 voucher to make up for it, which was nice, but a mistake is a mistake, so no 5 stars for NS.
That said, some of the most common bad Nutrisystem reviews revolve around the difficulty of the system. Basically, people can’t customize their orders according to their taste. Even though the option is there, they can’t make it work for them.
An active athlete (21 years a collegiate soccer referee), 13 years ago I contacted Parkinson’s Disease. About 2 years ago, the PD got worse and affected my gait and balance. The limited mobility helped my weight increase from 220# to 280#. The weight has caused heart problems, and leg swelling, which I could not correct. The Nutrisystem seemed a program I could follow, so I joined. In 3 weeks, I have lost over 20#, although hungry, my physical condition is improving, and my leg swelling has almost returned to normal. I will continue to reach a goal of 230#, and hopefully, beyond for the remainder of my life.
“I used the products successfully for roughly 10 months and lost 43 pounds. However, I developed a serious allergy to soy and began menopause a bit sooner than was expected with some adverse symptoms,” said Kim of Long Beach, Calif., in a ConsumerAffairs review.
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.
It is hard to imagine that anyone could stick to this diet, though if one had the willpower to empty their fridge, their pantry and all other food storage areas and kept nothing but NutriSystem at home, I am sure he or she would lose weight. But starvation is not a good idea and one would need to starve because eating this putrid junk is probably not an option. Don’t get me wrong, I understand that diet food is not necessarily gourmet food, but I have eaten pretty much every dish available from Lean Cuisine and 90% of them tasted good! So my expectation for NutriSystem was similar… And I was extremely disappointed. I’ve never in my life had food that tasted as revolting.

I made sure I was wearing my glasses so I didn’t accidentally open a packet of my cat’s food and put it in the microwave for my dinner. That would have been pretty silly. I don’t think my cat needs to lose any weight, so it probably wouldn’t be a good idea to be swapping our meals anytime.
The theory behind the diet is not the reason you will lose weight if you follow this plan. Weight loss can only occur when you consume fewer calories than your body needs. In the introduction chapter the author makes numerous claims that you do not need to limit the quantity of food that you consume and then provides portion restrictions on many high calorie foods, such as nuts. It’s appealing to hear you can eat unlimited quantities, but weight loss will not be achieved without limitations.
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.
