I am a previous customer and I received an email for a PRESIDENT’S DAY SALE for Uniquely yours for $249/month. I called Nutrisystem on and placed an order for this $249 SALE over the telephone, but I was charged $351.98. Nutrisystem took an extra $100 out of my account…
The food it hit or miss, but it is generally not THAT bad. There have only been one or two items (like the doughnut) that were horrible. Most of the food is pretty good and some of it I absolutely love. I haven’t been on the scale, because I don’t think that is a good way for me to track my progress, and it is depressing, and it will take 40+ pounds for me, at my size, to lose a pants size. I can tell you that my size 26 pants are loose and my size 24’s are starting to fit better. My fiance’s pants are fitting her better as well.
The Basic Plan is Nutrisystem’s most cost-effective offering and is a good way to get started if you’re brand new to the program, or your budget is tight. For less than $10 you can get most of your meals for the day, and that also includes their Turbo Takeoff kit to help you get the most from the program.
You can also buy select Nutrisystem food and drinks in several retail locations, including Walmart. Walmart commonly has protein bars, Nutrisystem shakes, or shake mixes available in store or online. A four count of five shake mixes costs around $35, and a six-pack of protein bars costs around $40. Walmart also has a Favorites 5 Day Diet Kit for $59.98.
I have been a chronic skipper of breakfast most of my adult life. No more. After Nutrisystem, I am sold on eating breakfast for weight loss. I absolutely adore their muffins and cereals. I am convinced that these delicious breakfast foods are helping me lose the weight that I have always wanted to lose. The Double Chocolate Muffins are my absolute favorite.
Founded as a diet centered on low-calorie protein drinks in 1972, NutriSystem once had 1,500 weight-loss centers in the U.S. before competition and overexpansion forced it into bankruptcy. Taken over by Chicago-based financier Michael E. Heisley, it began closing centers and shifting to a Web-based model — but with limited success. Hagan heard Heisley was looking to get out and swooped in with an investor group that bought a 58% stake for $10 million in 2002.
I’ve been on Nutrisystem for 19 days and lost 9 lbs. And my goal to lose is 30 lbs. which would put me at 130lbs. I think the food is good. This is a diet people! Eating all that “delicious” food is what got you FAT in the first place. If you didn’t lose weight then you weren’t following the plan. I think it’s actually impossible to not lose weight on this diet! The food comes with a complete book on what else you can eat in addition to the pre-packaged foods. It’s extremely straightforward…. Read it!
Get everything you need as well as nothing you do not agree with delicious dishes and also treats including, a well-balanced nourishment strategy and frequent dishes throughout the day.

Stay satisfied and also healthy consuming every 2-3 hours. And also, mix in your preferred fresh foods throughout the day with help from our Grocery Guide.
After one month the whole diet thing was easier as I was no longer craving foods like before. The cravings were not completely gone but walking away from a piece of cake or pizza was no longer a challenge. I had my own Nutrisystem goodies such as chocolate, pizza, potatoes, muffins and more. I didn’t feel deprived of any of my favorite foods.
Currently, Nutrisystem is promoting its “Lean 13” program (reflecting the 13-pound weight loss claim) that is supposed to kick-start weight loss for the first week you’re on the diet. Dubbed the “Turbo Takeoff,” Nutrisystem says its team of nutrition experts and dietitians design meals with lots of lean protein and fiber, and any carbs are low-glycemic to help keep your blood sugar stabilized. Most of their pre-packaged foods contain no preservatives and all are free of artificial sweeteners or flavors. Nutrisystem believes that consuming several small meals over the course of your day “promotes greater weight loss and maintenance.”
I needed to go on a diet. I had gained 25 pounds over the last year and I could not fit into any of my clothes. I did not want to go buy a whole new wardrobe when I already had a perfectly good one. I decided to try and lose weight but I was stuck, I didn’t know how to go about doing so. Then I found Nutrisystem and I decided to try the men’s basic plan.
Hey Ann and Alan, great to hear you’re so happy with this diet–and for a long time too! I’ll pass your on your question to the guys at NS, but I’m not so sure the newer customers are paying any less. There is a 1st month low-cost deal available for signing up for auto-delivery, but after that first month, subsequent monthly deliveries revert to the regular price depending on the plan.
To say something positive, this food is extremely easy to prepare and there is variety here. Most of it is pretty good. Some of the snacks are really not bad at all. They have a decent fudge bar, chocolate cupcake, ice cream sandwich. The “whole wheat ricotta crepes”, what I’d call manicotti, is really pretty good. I liked the chocolate caramel bar too. None of this stuff is suitable for a diabetic. I think I just told you what their 5 best things are, so if your taste is like mine and you go for Nutrisystem, you need to order a lot of them.
I’m definitely not one of those people who stays up late at night ordering things I see on TV, and honestly I usually skip the commercials, so it was unusual that this particular ad happened to catch my eye in the first place
Research has shown that reducing your daily caloric intake can lead to weight loss. For instance, the average calorie diet plan is 2,000 per day for an adult, so if you reduce this calorie intake by 500, you are sure to lose weight over time. This is because your body has fewer calories to work with.
I used Nutrisystem back in 2010 after I had my first child. I lost 50 lbs in four months and kept the weight off for three years. I just had another baby, and unfortunately gained all the weight back. Now I’m back on nutrisystem, and I lost 7 lbs in the first week. I would recommend this to anyone. Easy to prepare (especially since I’m always on the move), healthy, and never feeling hungry.
That being said, congrats to your husband for his weight loss. I think you, generally speaking, need to find what you’re most comfortable with and works for you. So much of it comes down to cutting down that portion size and learning what works for you. Progress is the real goal, in my opinion, to be able to find some sort of balance. Best of luck on your journey – I know it’ll be a challenge I need to regularly stay on top of.
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.
The confusion surrounding Nutri-System Inc., the debt-ridden chain of weight-loss centers, deepened Monday when its pending sale to a Chicago investment firm ran into unexpected opposition. Nutri-System court-appointed trustee John T. Carroll said Monday that he intends to fight the sale to Chicago-based Heico Acquisitions because it doesn’t cover the debt owed to unsecured creditors. Carroll said the unsecured creditors, a group which includes employees, are owed $8 million to $10 million.

I’ve been on this diet for only 3 days and what I’ve had so far is far from appetizing. I did Weight Watchers before and had much better luck with preparing my own meals and deciding what I wanted to eat each day. The food is just gross. I have called twice now to have the advisors reset my login to get help online and still on day 3 I can’t access the websites member information.
