Another guide, the Daily Tracker, provides a place where you can log meals, track water consumption and keep notes about your fitness activities. Sometimes, putting pen to paper is more effective than doing everything on a computer, so keep this guide handy.
“The South Beach Diet is well-positioned for growth in 2018. Our launch in 2017 allowed us to gain a deep understanding of what customers are looking for in a low-carb, low-sugar approach and based on their feedback, we have added new elements to the program for 2018 that are resonating well,” said Zier.
While there are some people who are going to complain about the Nutrisystem diet program, their results speak for themselves – if you follow the plan, you will lose weight with their easy-to-follow and effective system.
But because it’s important for you to learn—and practice—healthy eating habits so you can sustain your weight loss for life, in addition to your Nutrisystem foods, you’ll also incorporate fresh grocery foods into your diet. We’ve separated these foods into five simple categories, which will make it easy for you to complete a well-rounded diet, learn healthy habits, and add some variety to your plan!
I agree!! I just finished my first (and last) month on nutrisystem. I lost 1 pound and felt like crap the entire time. It stinks that I spent $270 to lose 1 pound. Granted i am only about 7 pounds overweight but i was expecting to lose around 5 pounds, not 1!! Very very disappointed.
This is the second time I’ve been on the program. It works,folks. The food is DIET food people and can’t be expected to taste like a 4 star restaurant. It is fairly good though and I lost 30 lbs. the first time. Just need to get back on it and lose some more. OH, also, my colesterol dropped to normal on this plan. That’s an added bonus.
In the past 5 years I have gained almost 30 lbs due to hypothyroidism, which has caused depression and isolation. I live alone. Because I am self employed. I go out to do my work and return home immediately. My social life consists of babysitting my grandchildren. I’ve done pills, supplements, plexus (which can be just as expensive if you buy all the different parts). I joined weight watchers. Then I just said..I’m done with all that nonsense and joined nutrisystem. When I set my mind to something I follow through. I do not cook for myself very often. When I do it is usually something quick that has too many carbs. Plus I would only eat at night time. I don’t understand what people are saying about the high sodium. If I have too much sodium. I swell up like a balloon. The key is to drink enough water to counteract the sodium. I’m a very picky eater. I find the food very good. So, instead of eating 1 meal at the end of the day, my meals are picked out for me. I am eating 6 times a day. Yes the first week is hard. It is on anything you do. What makes us fat in the first place is eating all the yummy foods that are loaded with fat, carbs, sugar and other harmful things. Of course this isn’t going to taste like that. Someone said the muffins are so small, yet have 150 calories. Do you know that a muffin you buy at the grocery store has around 500-600 calories per muffin? If you are complaining, you must not be ready to make a lifestyle change. I am pleased that everything is marked. I can grab and go.
Experts will tell you that best way to proceed is to find a dietitian nutritionist who can build a diet specifically suited to you and who will help you stick to that diet. The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics has an online directory that will help you find someone in your city. What you want is a “registered dietitian nutritionist.” This is a certified healthcare specialist, not just someone who decided to hang up a shingle. (The term “nutritionist” is not as rigorously defined).
The Basic, at $275 a month, is good for first-timers; the Basic plan includes pre-selected, ready-to-go meals including burgers, pasta, and chocolate—customer favorites. Nutrisystem says their plan is “affordable guaranteed weight loss.”
I have been on Nutisystem for months. 10 or 11. I do not eat dinners on the program. Only breakfast and lunch. I also only really love the frozen products. I do mix it up occasionally. Then I eat with my husband..my friends.. and I have lost from 143 down to 127 and keeping it off! The dinners are hard for me to eat as I’m not crazy about sauces. But the soups and noodles are great and I even eat lunch foods for dinner. I hope this helps u find your niche foods. Sincerely. Helen
Nutrisystem is a complete diet plan that achieves success by entirely removing the calorie counting and meal planning aspect of weight loss. The system revolves around you ordering and eating complete meals which seamlessly integrate with their diet plans.
I have been eating Nutrisystem for only a week now and have had horrible bloating and gas, which I’m not prone to have. Something in the ingredients or much of the food does not agree with me; perhaps some additive. I’m throwing the rest away and cancelling the next autoshipment. I was on Jenny Craig about 10 years ago and didn’t have these issues, except for one of the JC anytime bars. Otherwise, the taste of most of this food is fine.
I was informed I could cancel my order anytime. Did not get the food I ordered and short 6 snacks. They did not give me a chance to cancel my order within 3 weeks charged my account – argued with Frank customer service for over 30 minutes – he tried to force me to keep…
Losing weight is not rocket science, as Nutrisystem would have you believe. You don’t need them to cook your meals weeks or months prior. Just start adding healthy, fesh foods to your regular diet and ween yourself off of heavy foods that you’ll find at restaurants. This way your body is getting what it really wants and needs, and you aren’t relying on a corporation to provide 100% of your food.

Hey Lynette, that’s an amazing story, congrats! You’re right, it’s all about achieving the body size you are meant to be–and can be through getting into the simple habit of right eating and sufficient exercise each day.
I have been able to keep the weight off by using Nutrisystem’s maintenance program. I no longer get a month’s supply shipped to my door. I have learned to eat the right foods on my own as I still order some of the Nutrisystem foods from their A la Carte menu. This keeps me on track. Besides, like I said before “I love the foods”. I continue to walk every day at least three miles and hula hoop when I have some extra energy to burn.
Our favorite for value and efficacy is Weight Watchers, designed to help you change your eating habits for good. Nutrisystem is the least expensive meal delivery plan we reviewed (Medifast is cheaper, but you have to provide one meal a day on your own). And the silver-spoon award undoubtedly goes to In The Zone Delivery, a white-glove service for people who’ll spare no expense to drop the pounds.
If you just want to try it for a month you’ll have to pay more. Their month-by-month program is $386, over $120 more than the auto-ship price. Obviously they want to make their money by repeat purchases, but this seems like a rather excessive surcharge just to avoid getting automatic shipments.
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.
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.
The best place to buy Nutrisystem’s products (and join their plans) is through their website. You may be able to find their products on Amazon and other online retailers, but on third-party sites, the selection is limited. We highly recommend you buy directly from the organization itself.
Not a problem Renee, happy to share. Sorry to hear about your ups and downs – I’ve dealt with that most of my life. What I do now is stay as active as can be. I exercise six times a week, taking a weekend day off and do a combination of cardio & strength. I also have a standing desk now so I cut down on a lot of the sitting that I have working from home. I combine all that with keeping my portion sizes down, not much more than what I was eating while on the program. If I can keep snack-y type foods out of the house I can usually do fairly well. Best wishes on your continued weight loss!
Well said!!!!!! I am starting my 6th week and have lost 13 lbs. I eat all the time, food is fine, urinate frequently even without 64 oz of water daily. The flatulence is from the finer. I was in the army and ate MRE’s so this is doable. America is FAT and everyone complaining here wants their pizza and ice cream which isn’t healthy. Notice that NS takes your sodium to a healthy 2300 or less mg’s a day which is the daily recommended dose. It’s full of iron, fiber, etc. that fast food doesn’t provide. A plain potato is nasty but one loaded with butter, sour cream, cheese, bacon, etc. tastes wonderful. Food is for survival not pleasure people. NS WORKS!
As with all the plans, the first week of the Basic Plan is Turbo10, an ultra-low-calorie plan that allows you to lose up to 10 pounds and up to five inches right off the bat. Unlike the other plans, custom menus are not an option; you must stick with whatever you receive in the Favorites Pack. Counseling and other services are not included with this plan.
