The food was completely awful. I had horrible stomach cramps and the snacks were overly salty. Too much soy (soy can change estrogen levels in women). Customer service was a joke. I do not recommend this diet at all. Save your money and buy locally grown fresh food.
I first signed up for Nutrisystem several years ago and had awesome results using their program. In fact, I lost about 30 pounds the first time I tried it (read the full story below), and since then I’ve been able to maintain my weight loss with a combination of healthy eating and exercise.
The Nutrisystem website offers some supplementary tools beyond basic recipes and simple dieting tips. It has a dining guide to help you stay within your calorie consumption range when you go out to eat. It also has some portion control tools that let you see and compare food options. These tools can help you develop basic guidelines to follow when you return to eating regular food in order to keep the weight you’ve lost off.
I didn’t realize the difference a few pounds can make until I put the photos side by side. This put me in the mood to clean out my closet and toss out all the size 12’s and large clothes. My size 10’s were now too loose.
I have been doing Weight Watchers for years with my friend. As she says, once all of your points are gone on Weight Watchers, you get to eat your spit for dinner! Well, my friend got really sick of doing the point thing, so she switched to Nutrisystem. My friend lost four pounds the first week and three pounds the second week on Nutrisystem. Once I heard about her success, I decided to switch, too.
Grab and Go. They offer “grab and go” snacks to keep you healthy even when you’re on the run. These options include granola bars, mixed nuts, dried fruit, pretzels, and more to take with you when you don’t have time to sit down to eat a real meal. The frozen foods are easy to transport to work. You can bring them along for your lunch break to eat as long as you have an office that offers a microwave in the lunchroom.

A diet made of convenience begs the question: Isn’t dieting about getting off the couch and working hard to lose weight? NutriSystem, a diet program based on prepackaged meals that contain all the calories and nutrients you need, seems to subtract the hard work from the weight-loss equation. You’ll still have to hit the grocery store for fruits, veggies and the like — which means you’ll have to resist the lure of the candy aisle — but most of the food-preparation work is done for you.
I like having a lot of food in the house. You will accomplish that by doing this. I checked that I am diabetic. It is one of the options on the website. It makes no difference though. They offer you the exact same food whether you are diabetic or not. The food has sugar in it. So it’s phony to even ask if you are diabetic on this program. For example, one of their breakfasts has 10 grams of sugar and 29 grams of carbs, and yet it is approved for diabetics. Check with your doctor on that. It is not a low glycemic food.
As you can see, you’re eating throughout the day. You will be hungry many times, but that’s the point. You don’t eat to be full. You eat to be satisfied. Thus, the portion sizing I mentioned earlier. I will also point out that as I got closer to my goal I cut fruit and the protein at lunch to cut down on the calories.

Hi Colleen. All dieters have different weight loss results. Some users loose weight faster/slower than others. To receive optimal results it is advised to follow all the instructions provided with your purchase.
I started Nutrisystem from Walmart one week before having foot surgery. I’m about 25lbs overweight and I want to lose some weight and keep myself from gaining any while I recuperate. The food is fine and fills me up since all I do is sit on my butt all day. I drink a lot of herbal tea and water also. I’m a nurse and also 64 years old so I know if I were just sit around and pig out I would end up fatter,depressed and constipated lol. The food is very doable and full of fiber to help me go. I will not be able to drive for 3months. It is totally up to me to do this right. I know I can and NS I believe will help me do this.thank God also for a wonderful caring boyfriend that is helping and caring for me.????
Most of the meals are grain based. Many are wraps that are thick, tough, and tasteless. I opened them and scraped out a spoonful of filling. There is not nearly enough protein or healthy fat and way to [sic] much carbohydrates. They are convenient. However to make this plan work you still have to provide most of the food yourself. 
Nutrisystem has been around for a long time, and there’s a reason for that: the program has worked for millions of people over the years. Their are very appealing and make you want to try their plan because you hear the testimonies from real people who have lost weight with Nutrisystem.
Thank you for this review and all of the comments that have followed. I am 85 pounds overweight and grieving the murder of my daughter has led me to 30 pounds of weight gain over the last 7 months. I am hopeful that NS will be the answer that I have been looking for to increase my energy, self control and self confidence.
New eating habits were not my only struggle. To accomplish success, this required me to give up food and wine outings with friends. I turned down invites as this would lead to binge eating and they would not understand.
The New England Journal of Medicine concluded in 2013 that a portion-controlled and calorie-restricted diet is pretty tried and true. And while it does not comment specifically on Nutrisystem, the point is made. 
The program also offers Nutrisystem D, a “comprehensive program designed to help people with type 2 diabetes achieve meaningful weight loss.” The program clarifies that “it does not treat or cure diabetes, and is not a substitute for diabetes medications.”
I have been on the Nutrisystem for 5 days and the food is horrible. It tastes like ‘dog’ food on certain items there is a plastic preservative pack with ‘do not eat’ and stuck to the food I mean on the food! The food is full of sodium. The food gave me gas, bloated stomach, frequent bowel movements and constipation to…
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.
“I had phenomenal success with the weight-loss program. If taken according to directions, the product really works! I cannot say the same for the business program that Herbalife offers. I was told that if I would sign up for the business program, I would be able to buy the product at a discount. That was true, but before long, I was being pressured to invest large sums of money and to create a down line of distributors,” Maurice said in a ConsumerAffairs review.
The plan works because the portions are small and because, if you follow it, you are not hungry. The drawbacks are it is expensive, the food gets tiresome over the long haul and you need a lot of add-ins from the grocery store. However, it has been the easiest way I have found to lose weight without feeling neglected and, over time, your body gets used to the smaller portions.
Hey that’s really great news Shana. I’m really stoked when folks leave comments here that are so positive and sharing their success. You’re proof that this diet really does wok when you are determined and stubborn enough to stick with it no matter what. Good luck with your second month and hitting that target!
Nutrisystem is pretty wonderful in one aspect, may favorite: Portion size control. I realize that I had be programed to expect too much food. We’re eating too much food, period. On my first morning (this round) of Nutrisystem I opened the granola cereal packet and dumped it in a bowl. I thought “This ain’t enough”. But, guess what, it was. I was comfortable. The process of re-programing myself took a couple of weeks, maybe that entire month to really get used to portion control. But, now I have gotten used to it I like it. Now when I go to a restaurant and see how much food they put on a plate it just gets me. No wonder Americans can’t control their weight. We are programmed to think that we need way more food than we do. Also, now I really enjoy food so much more. My taste buds must be working better but, I enjoy food more while eating far less and no cheap, junk foods.
I ordered a month’s Nutrisystem. However, when my shipment arrived, there was only food for 25 days. As far as I know, there is no month that contains only 25 days. I am cancelling my subscription immediately. The food is good but I do think this is false advertising and fraud. I plan to report the company to the Better Business Bureau.
There are dozens of Nutrisystem Lean 13 food options to choose from. These foods are broken down into categories such as breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, shakes, and boosters. You can even narrow your food search by selecting frozen or non-frozen. If you have any specific allergies, you can further narrow your selection of foods by ruling out ingredients such as:
The Nutrisystem website also provides me with access to a counselor who is available 24 hours a day to chat with if I have any questions. I highly recommend the Nutrisystem men’s basic plan. It’s working for me and I know it will work for you too. Now if I can only get my wife on it. I need more support!
When I am on Nutrisystem, your service is really good. I can email customer service and get responses back quickly. Customer service is very important. I also like the coupons that are offered and try to take advantage of them. I stopped ordering Nutrisystem a few months back but I suspect I will order again in the future. Recently I did email a question and did not get a response back. That was disappointing.
