I spent the next couple of weeks feeling depressed and embarrassed, which I masked by eating and drinking even more. It was the middle of winter, and I was laying on the couch late one night when a Nutrisystem commercial came on TV. Dan Marino, the legendary Miami Dolphins Quarterback, was talking about how he had lost more than 20 pounds on Nutrisystem, and for some reason, his words stuck with me (see the commercial below).
Thanks for the comment, Heather…It definitely works when you follow the program correctly. $300 is a commitment, so just make sure you’re ready to follow and stick with the program for at least a month or two. Best of luck if you decide to try it!
The Nutrisystem men’s basic plan is very convenient to use too. I take my frozen lunch with me to work and I can get more work done while losing weight! The plan is also very simple to follow, just follow their instructions. Don’t deviate by eating snickers bars, okay?! Stay away from those evil vending machines too! If you drink coffee, stop using creamer as I discovered I was drinking an extra 300 calories a day in coffee creamer!
A Chicago firm that invests in distressed companies agreed on Friday to buy debt-ridden Nutri-System Inc., bringing closer to resolution a financial crisis that forced the closing of 282 company-owned weight-loss centers last week. John Gough, an attorney for Nutri-System franchisees, identified the buyer as Heico Acquisitions. A representative of Heico could not be reached.
The diet is reduced calories, and clinical trials undertaken by Nutrisystem have shown significant weight loss. On of the more recent studies of Lean 13 show an average 11.63 lb weight loss over the first four weeks.
I love the taste of the Nutrisystem Women’s Plan food. The problem is, it tastes so good that I want more of it. The Thick Crust Pizza tastes amazing. So does the Sweet and Sour Chicken. I try to make myself slow down when I’m eating, but I still always want more when I’m done with what is on my plate. I am told that this will get easier soon because eating less than I am used to eating will make my stomach shrink. Of course, I shouldn’t complain because I am actually losing weight. Nonetheless, I’m hoping this hunger problem gets better soon.

In a Nutrisystem-funded study of 69 obese Type 2 diabetics, published in the journal Postgraduate Medicine in 2009, researchers reported that those assigned to eat meals on the Nutrisystem D diabetic track lost an average of 18 pounds after three months compared with 1 pound for the control group, who attended educational sessions on diabetes management and nutrition. At six months, the Nutrisystem dieters were down an average of 24 pounds, while the controls – who were switched to Nutrisystem meals halfway through the six-month study – were down 13 pounds. In a similar study published in 2013 in Nutrition Diabetes, 50 Nutrisystem dieters lost an average of about 22 pounds in six months, while the 50 control dieters lost only about 5.

The diets work because they’re simple: if you eat whatever food the company sends you, and you don’t cheat on those foods, then you’re going to lose weight based on your calorie intake alone (don’t forget you need to purchase 40% of your daily calories from the grocery store yourself).
I was not thrilled with the taste of most of the food. I found myself resenting eating the food and was even turned off by the packaging of each item. In addition, I still had to purchase fruit and veggies which added to the cost of the program.
I have been on Nutrisystem since March of this year and I have lost 50 lbs. My only complaint is the price, however right now it is not a strain on me and I am pleased with the results. Some folks hate the food, but I actually enjoy it. You do still have to buy food to add in, but you get to eat basically all day long. I like the fact that I do get to eat pancakes, waffles, muffins, chococate cake, brownies, cake, cookies so I do not feel like I am missing out on anything and I have no reason to go out and binge on things I used to binge on.
Halfway through touring the exhibits, I began to run low on energy. The hunger I felt as I moseyed back to my apartment Sunday afternoon is only topped in my life by the time I went on a 36-hour fast in high school to raise money for Sudan relief.
Sorry I missed reporting…I’ve made it into August. I’m doing the plan, I’m exercising,eating the food ect. But from8/1 til today nothing. Scale is not moving. I called in and got some instructions, but not too say, I’m feeling little down. I was down and went up 1 lb. Now its not moving. Yikes, this part is frustrating. Any ideas????
Hagan eats NutriSystem food at the office, but he’s no zealot. He bought NutriSystem because he saw a valuable but underutilized brand. Hagan’s not completely against brick-and-mortar assets, either. He recently purchased the 120-unit Slim & Tone fitness-center franchise and plans to expand it in part as a way to cross-sell the NutriSystem plan. After all, you can’t run on a treadmill online.
Starting day 5 on fast five plan. Day 4 was terrible with constant stomach pain, not gas pain. The pain was present most of the day and through the night and I’m still uncomfortable this morning. Did not vary from the plan at all so far. I’m 68, 5′-9″, 171 lbs. Accumulate fat from chest to pelvis, man boobs, muffin top. Pre N.S. diet was fairly healthy, no packaged meals, mostly homemade, just guilty of overeating and eating late. Now I’m concerned about this stomach pain and wondering if I should continue with this diet.
The following review examines the advantages and disadvantages of several popular diet plans. Many of the diets emphasize the restriction of one nutrient as the basis for their plan. The other food groups and nutrients are allowed in limited or unlimited quantities, depending on the plan. Weight loss is impossible without a calorie restriction, so each diet has to provide fewer calories than your body needs to maintain your weight. Any diet that claims otherwise can end up causing weight gain. Various diet plans are summarized below to help you learn to review them for safety and effectiveness.
I’ve been on Nutrisystem for 4 days and have followed it to the T, and I’ve lost 11 pounds. 11 POUNDS!! I know it’s still very early for me, but frankly, I think the food tastes pretty good (although the portions are laughably small), and yes, it is expensive. But, when you really look at what you used to spend on food….groceries, going out to dinner, running to the store here and there just to pick up a few things, the plan isn’t THAT expensive. $340/4 weeks = $85 per week, plus you are probably spending $20 on extras. So $105 per week….I think we used to spend more than that before, going out to dinner, etc. I am finding that the shakes are AMAZING at curbing appetite, and drinking enough water is CRITICAL in not only helping to curb hunger, but also in digestion. I think I am getting A LOT more fiber (and protein) than I used to, and the water helps in processing that extra fiber. I’ve tried Weight Watchers in the past, and lost about 20 pounds then stopped (weight loss stopped…got stuck). Trying on my own has been very unsuccessful. I have a long way to go (over 100 lbs.), but so far I’ve been quite happy with Nutrisystem. I feel I have more energy and ‘bloat’ feeling I used to feel is GONE. I guess it’s all about priorities….how bad do you want to lose the weight? I will add though that if you have any kind of issue (IBS, digestion issues), then you should definitely check with your doctor before starting any weight loss plan. Good luck everyone!!
They also encourage you to eat fruits and vegetables with the packaged meals, and if you have read the work of Dr. Joel Fuhrman you understand clearly the association if fruits and vegetables to long term weight loss.
I have tried the Nutrisystem diet recently and for me it worked extremely well. I was overweight to the tune of 40 pounds and in one month on their diet I actually lost 28 pounds. I waited a while until I saved up some more money and I will get another month soon and I’m sure I will lose the rest.

Nutrisystem generally conforms to the federal government’s 2015 Dietary Guidelines, though it received a below-average nutrition score. Some nutrient information, like the amount of potassium and vitamins B-12 and D you get on the diet, weren’t available for analysis.
My size twelves were getting too big. Though I was actually enjoying wearing them loose, I knew at this rate I would need some new clothes. Grabbing a few pairs of jeans in a size 10, and one in a size 8 just for fun, I dashed into the dressing room. I’m pretty sure I did a little squeal as I squeezed into the size eights! They were a little snug but I was still a comfortable ten. I didn’t buy any jeans that day, I knew I had a smaller pair of pants in my closet at home. You know, that pair you keep around “just in case”? However, I did buy a pair of yoga pants to walk in. Guess what?
A calorie is a calorie, the advice goes. Eat too many … gain weight. Eat fewer … lose weight. But many believe weight loss is more than a calorie equation, with so-called new-and-improved ways to lose weight being ever popular. Americans spend an estimated $42 billion annually on weight loss foods, products, and services. With that much money at stake, it’s no surprise there are an overwhelming number of “fad” diets and other weight-loss products on the market.
I’ve just completed my first month and starting on my second delivery of food today. So far I lost 16 pounds with the first 6 disappearing in the first week. I’m really stoked to continue with this program cause its totaly working for me. I really agree with what Dolly said about the hassle being taken out of the diet is what makes it so doable for me too. The food is pretty Ok I guess. Nothing to get excited about but its all been perfectly OK to eat so far and I haven’t had any meal I really hated. I guess its personal taste and maybe its not for everyone but its just fine for me. here’s looking forward to losing the next 16!
I’m diabetic, have high blood pressure, high cholstrol, I’m 68 years old, BMI is over 34, 5’2″, 186 lbs…..been pondering this for a long time….what worries me is that this food plan will not satisfy me and I will not follow the plan….but would like to see what I can do in a 6 month period, just worried I would be wasting my money….??
Lap band (gastric banding) surgery, also referred to as laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding (LAGB) is a surgical procedure in which an adjustable belt is placed around the upper portion of the stomach. Candidates for lap band surgery are generally individuals with a body mass index over 40 kg/m2, or are more than 45 kilograms over their ideal body weight. Side effects, risks, and complications from lap band surgery should be discussed with a surgeon or physician prior to the operation.
The best place to start is with your doctor, who may already be nagging you about your weight, your cholesterol reading, your blood pressure and your impending metabolic disease. You need to be sure you don’t have a condition that requires a special diet before you embark on a major change in your eating habits.
I just ordered my first 28 days worth of NS food and I must say I am extremely dissapointed. I read TONS of review on the net and found that a huge portion was positive feedback. I have only tried the double chocolate muffin, chocolate chip scone, chocolate cake and black bean soup, I know its a lot of chocolate, but i haven’t even been wanting to try anything else since that stuff was so gross. It tastes like preservatives and chemicals and it’s very dry. Maybe the lunch and dinners aren’t as bad but for the breakfasts and deserts I have ordered it is disgusting.
