There are those who will argue that the freshest local food is the healthiest and this may be true but it’s also true that people who have jobs, children and other responsibilities don’t always have time to go to the farmer’s market each day and to then spend an hour peeling the carrots and potatoes. There are also many people who simply don’t like to cook and aren’t very good at it. Nutrisystem is ideal for them. Open the box, pop the ingredients into the microwave and dinner is served.
Strongly agree! If you have a lot of weight to lose and your diet is terrible prior to starting NS, then it likely will help you lose because you will be eating healthier than before. If you’re already eating relatively healthy, but simply lack exercise, don’t expect the same (if any) results because exercise is crucial. I’m 5’7” and went from 270 to 180 on my own through healthy eating and moderate exercise 3 years ago. When I moved last year, I stopped going to the gym, started straying from healthy eating, and started working a desk job. I started NS a few months ago expecting to lose more weight thinking I just wasn’t eating the right food, but discovered it was lack of exercise that was the real culprit.
Personally, I thought the diet lived up to my expectations and for that it was worth every cent I paid for it. Okay, I hijacked your comments you can have them back now, but some things just have to be said. Hope you publish this!

Jenny Craig and Nutrisystem are both available online, but Nutrisystem has several key advantages many customers prefer. They don’t require you to sign a contract for how long you’ll use the service, whereas Jenny Craig does. Nutrisystem also has more customizable and specialized plans. The Jenny Craig diet has different plans for men and women and for different age groups, but they don’t have vegetarian or diabetic meal plans.
I’ve heard other people complain about accidentally over billing or a missing food item from a shipment, but I can not complain about the Nutrisystem men’s basic plan. I have been using Nutrisystem’s plan for about two months now. I thought for sure when I started the plan that I would probably have at least one thing to complain about it; however, I was wrong. Nutrisystem truly is a great plan. Any problems that you may read about online are obviously one off items and not a consistent trend.
Feb. 18, 2015 — Progressive high-impact training improved the patellar cartilage quality of the postmenopausal women who may be at risk of osteoporosis (bone loss) as well as at risk of osteoarthritis. The effects … read more
The NutriSystem diet entails eating mainly prepackaged NutriSystem meals until you reach your desired weight. For around $360-$420, you get 28 days worth of entrees, snacks, and desserts delivered to your home. The average subscriber to this plan loses 2 pounds per week and stays on the program for 10 weeks.
Includes: 4-week plan with meals delivered, shipping, online tracking tools and app, choose your own meals, unlimited access to expert counselors and dietitians, “choose from over 150 foods”, and “delicious frozen foods.”
Nutrisystem is a great option for both men and women looking to lose weight, and anyone who wants to have most of their meals for the month delivered right to their doorstep. It’s safe and effective, and right now they can help you lose up to 13 pounds and 7 inches during your first month on the program.
Ruined your health? Wow, that’s quite a dramatic statement to make. You had a bladder infection, you weren’t poisoned. LOL! You should have done your research before you ate “so many preservatives”. Know this, Nutrisystem has one of the most robust and advanced Research & Development labs across the food & drug category. I now this because my employer, an executive search firm, placed their SVP, R&D. You should have been drinking at least 64 oz of water BEFORE you even went on NS, if you are concerned about your health. Again, I shake my head at those of you who complain and blame right out of the gate. Good luck!
But you may still harbor doubts because an ad will not always tell you the whole story about a product pr service. It will tell you all the great things about it and none of the not so great things. So does the Nutrisystem diet program really work?
I was passing blood, the food is horrible, the meat smells like Dog Food. I lost 14 lbs.no wonder I could not tolerate the food, my Dr. told me to get off this plan but now I am using something else. Having no problems.
The meals they provide are generally really simple to get ready: Take each one out of its packaging (or the freezer if it’s a Uniquely Yours plan with fresh frozen meals) and follow the instructions on the packet. That will be to either eat as it comes, or put them into the microwave to heat up for a hot meal.
Users have praised its ability to target women’s needs for weight loss, and the ease of use which can reduce any complications that can happen. There are simplified explanations offered as to what is needed for one to really lose weight. Their pre-packaged foods are also often described as being satisfying, and easy to modify to combine home cooked meals. See what the NutriSystem For women plan has to offer by visiting the link Below.
When you sign up, you receive a 28-day program of pre-packaged food. Depending on which plan you choose, you will also gain a variety of support tools and other features. We will delve more deeply into the plans later, but they include options for vegetarians and people who have diabetes. Unfortunately, there aren’t options for people with certain allergies, including gluten intolerance. They have also done away with their special plans for seniors.
Some of these might work for some people, some for others. But which one will work for you? And for how long? That’s the 64-pound question. The answer, of course, is whichever program helps you eat fewer calories than you burn. The hard part is finding a program that does that and that you can follow from now until forever.
Convenience: Main entrees can be ordered with the click of a mouse, but restaurant meals are only occasionally allowed. Alcohol is discouraged, but possible since you get up to three extras per day (about 100 calories total) to use as you want. Time spent at the grocery store is limited. When you’re ready to wean yourself off the program, it offers recipes and coaches. Online resources are free and helpful.
Nature has engineered many naturally occurring preservatives, such as honey and citric acid, which prevent its bounty from spoiling before it’s picked or plucked for consumption. But there are hundreds of artificially manufactured preservatives that can be added to foods to help slow the process of decay, mold and spoilage.
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!).
I opted to try the program when a friend introduced me and I received a $50 discount. Even with the discount the cost was $250 for 4 weeks for the Core Program including the Turbo start-up kit. I didn’t notice at the time that I had committed to another 4 weeks via their auto-delivery plan (another $299) as this was in the fine print. I didn’t like that and felt it was somewhat unethical but that’s another story. I am now almost through the second week. The first week was tough to say the least. You have got to really want to do this! The food rather tasteless so you have to really doctor it up. You can eat as many vegetables as you like so I would add some of these and some spices into the dishes. I think the frozen food may be better but I didn’t chose this due to the added on expense. I did buy a few Lean Cuisines and sub’d some of these for meals. They tasted much better than the shelf entrees from Nutrisystem. The shakes do help curb the hunger in between. I am looking for some alternative shakes I can buy from grocers since I ran-out of these. I received an offer for 50% off the Turbo shakes from Nutrisystem but noticed it required another auto-delivery plan to get the reduced price. gggrrrrrr! Won’t fall for that again!
2018 is going to be a great year for dieters looking to shed those unwanted extra pounds! Nutrisystem is in the forefront of the diet industry and they have come out for the New Year with guns blazing.
The menopause affects different people differently but often the imbalance of hormones leads to weight gain. Have you consulted with your doctor about this? There are many very effective treatments that can restore your hormone balance which can help with your weight.
You might have a good product. I do not know, but I lost 65 pounds all by myself and couldn’t be happier. My comment is PLEASE stop so many commercials. I imagine Marie had to have plastic surgery to get rid of the excess skin left after losing so much weight. She is a beautiful woman, I will grant you that but come on one commercial after another is getting to be too much. Your company must be making billions off of the poor overweight people, which is fine with me, but please could you cut back on the commercials. When I see too many commercials on certain products/services I boycott them. I do not need your service and I think you are an honest and reliable service, so PLEASE limit the commercials.
If you prefer the convenience of prepackaged meals delivered to your door over the freshness and flavor of home-cooked meals, this diet may be for you. Having all of your meals prepared for you makes it easy to eat the right type and amount of food. The challenge is that after you go off the program, you are on your own again. So if you do go on this diet, work with the counselors to develop a plan for how you are going to maintain your weight loss when you are eating and cooking on your own again.
