From Size 24 to Size 4: My Nutrisystem Review and Success Story
I never created any 2nd account, I only updated my credit card information which I regret. I got a taste for apple pie and cream and it wasn't too long before my weight spiralled out of control and I just didn't have it in me to do any exercise. Comments are moderated to prevent spam. I also must admit that I allow myself one cheat meal a week as well. I just signed up for my first order. That's 14 pounds in one month. Sure the muffin isn't fluffy and the foods are processed but they take the challenge out of calorie counting and preparing.

I usually approve valid ones inside 48 hours. I started Nutrisystem 7 weeks ago and am down The food is not nearly as bad as everyone claims it is. It has taught me portion control which is what I needed. I have 15 to go but am confident I will get there.

My only complaint is that their Customer Service and Weight Loss counselors are horrible — not rude but not at all helpful. I am the type who will post a great review if the service is great but will do the same when it is horrible. I won't go in to detail but if you are having issues losing the first few weeks, do not bother with the counselors — they read from a script. Just tweek the program a bit for you which is what I did.

I have eaten out for business dinners and it has taught me how to do that and still lose weight. Hey Cory, congrats on your success. That's an impressive load of weight to lose in just under 4 months, you must feel so proud. Thanks for sharing your experience with us here and good luck for the future! That was a good deal! The first month was wild. At first I hated the small meals, like two bites and they're gone at least for my way of eating.

After a few days, it hit me why I got so big. I was eating like a hog and no wonder I looked like one! I took your advice and drank a big glass of water before every meal and it helped a lot. I can't believe it happened, but I got used to the tiny meals and the food actually tastes OK!

I lost 16 pounds in September and that really fired me up to continue. In October I lost 14 pounds, making it all nice and easy November I slowed and only lost 10lbs.

I was going to quit after 3 months, but with only 10 to go to hit my target, I didn't cancel and package number 4 arrived end of November. I'll complete the final week of food before Christmas then I'll definitely cancel.

I know Christmas is a big feasting time, but I do believe I'll be keeping to small plates and not many of them this year. I like how I feel now without all that food rolling around inside of me like I used to, so there's no going back to being that old hog anymore!

Thanks for your review and all your advice, Dr Johnathan. It certainly worked for me and I'd tell anyone that needs it to do what I did!

Hey Liz, apologies for not approving this right away when it came in. I thought I had done, but technology got the better of me this time! Anyway, it's a great comment and really motivating for anyone else who is in the early stages of this diet. Congrats on losing 14 pounds so far! Today marks the one month point in my NS weight loss journey and I could not be more thrilled with the results!

This morning I weighed in at That's 14 pounds in one month. I am finally motivated in a way I haven't been in years. My goal is around and I plan to leave nothing to chance and will stay the course until I reach it.

How did I do it? Well let me admit at the top that I did it without exercise. I am not proud of the fact I really hate exercise. It isn't the exercise itself that I despise, it's the breaking away from the crazy, hectic, busyness of my full life and adherence to my never ending to-do list which never leaves space for exercise.

I know it's a problem. I will address this in month two as I fear I will plateau without it so I am prepared to tackle this in a big way. Turbo week I lost 7 pounds. I did not feel great or energetic but I gutted it out without a single cheat! Huge victory for my undisciplined self. I did not consume every single veggie allotted but I came close.

Four cups of veggies a day is a lot. I really craved some comfort food and some of the meals in the Turbo kit I will never order again. The shakes and Nutricrush bars were fine. The meal portions were pretty shocking but surprisingly satisfying with all the protein inserted into the meals and detox from my usual sugar rollercoaster.

I did experience some headaches probably from the reduction in sugar similar to a caffeine withdrawal. One indulgence I cannot live without is my one strong morning coffee and creamer, so I guess I did cheat with 1 Tbs.

As I moved into week two, the meals were ones that I had chosen and I learned that there are plenty of tasty choices. The simplicity and convenience has been so worth every penny. It just takes the guess work out of the mix and I needed that support to make it happen. Lunches are less exciting but the bars are so easy for days that I am stuck in my car. The frozen melts, soups, and cheesy noodle choices are my faves.

The ice cream sandwich is my favorite snack item for sure. There are lots of sweet and salty choices and I do look forward to those. The pizzas are the worst by far. The chili runs a close second-nasty! So, bottom line, I totally reccomend this to anyone that is just overwhelmed by the daunting task of low cal meal planning. Like many women, I am still responsible for preparing meals for my family.

I am trying to keep it as simple as possible and no one is complaining. They are supportive of my weight loss plan and they see how happy I am. You know what they say After 8 weeks I have only lost ten pounds but several inches which ain't a bad thing. Called nutrient emus about not dropping pounds and they say I am eating too little?

Should have been around and was closer to per day. Easy to do because guys like me won't read the instructions. Hoping to get myself eating to burn fat instead of storing. I needed to lose weight as I was on a fast track for physical problems. At 6 ft tall and Watching the commercials, I finally decided that NS seemed my best bet.

The guy in the commercial that says, "You eat the food, you lose the weight". So, I ordered the Lean Started the diet on July 22 and like I mentioned above, my weight was a little over pounds. Today, August 20, I weigh in at pounds. I am very pleased with this product I also have mixed in some free weights, push ups, my treadmill and rowing machine. My goal is to get to by mid December.

I have read some above comments about not being able to cancel. After I ordered the program, I found more out about Keto and Paleo weight loss and decided I wanted to go that way, with all health unprocessed high fat, low carb foods. I was connected to a very nice rep, told him my shipment was on the way and that I didn't want it. Way to handle it correctly Nutri System. He never tried to talk me into not canceling, he did offer a few suggestions on how I could try it, I said no thank you, and that was that.

I do not think this is a healthy way to eat. All the carbs are converted to sugar in your body, you may loose weight over a period of time, but you will put it back on if you don't understand how your body processes and burns calories. Hey Paula, it's great to hear positive comments about this program from people who are really succeeding with what is a really great meal replacement diet program.

I've known this for years and been telling people about it for years I'm sad to hear about your son battling cancer. I pray he comes through and beats it. Thank you for telling us your story and good luck reaching your goal weight! I started on nutrisystem 2 weeks ago and I am so happy with the program. I'm pretty disturbed that there are some people that post comments telling others not to try it!! What do you have to lose?? This is the first time in my life I have been able to lose weight, while eating and being usually satisfied.

I have a family of 8 children and I homeschool. I am busy, busy, busy! Right now, we are in a crisis as one of my children is battling cancer.

I spend so much of my time taking him to doctor appointments and being in the hospital. I was always overweight by about 20 pounds, but have gained an additional 10 from sitting in hospitals and stress eating. I just began the program and have lost 8 pounds. This program has made it easy for me to eat healthy amidst a crazy busy life.

I can't understand the bad reviews about the food. I hate high sodium, processed food. The food in this program tastes pretty good, not great homemade, but does not taste overly processed to me. I cook homemade meals largely organic, fresh almost every night for my family, so I am not a processed food eater usually, and I like the food. Admittedly, I am not a great cook, so most of the meals I make are pretty simple and not perfectly cooked or flavored.

Maybe the food on this program is better tasting than my usual fare? I don't know, but I found it easy to prepare a meal for my family and yet eat my own food because it tastes so good. Quite simply, the program works if you stick to it. I have only been able to lose weight in the past if I did juicing fasts. I have already lost weight and am learning why I have been overweight through this program.

I am confident that I can now eat my own food and keep my weight under control. I have never been able to. I did have to get used to the smaller portions and I now feel satisfied on them.

I learned to fill up on veggies and that I just have always eaten too much and the wrong things. I intend to stay on the program until I reach my goal weight. I am just so happy I gave this a try. I don't have cons for this program. I got what I expected from Nutrisystem. There were no hidden costs or drawbacks. It's working for me and if there are any cons they are far outweighed by that fact.

I will recommend Nutrisystem to anyone who asks! I am on day 11 of the nutrisystem diet, I started with a 5 day kit that came from Walmart and bought my fruit and veggies plus a ninja smoothie blender all at the exact same time. I was totally equipped to do this all right.

I have already lost 6 pounds 24 to go. Since then I purchased another 5 day kit for use while waiting for my a la cart order to arrive from nutrisystem of frozen food.

I found that after just the first bite or two the food does taste better and adding seasoning helps too. For me, the best thing is after cooking for my husband of 30 years- I no longer have to cook! I can pick out my meal and never worry about what my husband will eat. I actually believe the sodium is lower on this plan as I tend to gravitate to salty foods.

By adding fruits and veggies then putting a little effort does make this more enjoyable and I feel more satisfied. I really want to lose weight more than I dislike eating the food and also I'm feeling real good and noticing I have more energy. We have been on Nutrisystem for 2 weeks and I'm already down 17 lbs!!!!!

I know some people will say that's way too fast but I'm sure some was water retention from all of the sodium we consumed before starting but I will take what I can get. I feel so much better. My scrubs fit better and I have a ton of energy. I definitely recommend Nutrisystem to anyone who has struggled with weight and has a hard time with portion control.

Good luck to everyone! Hey Nutrisystem, You might have a good product. I do not know, but I lost 65 pounds all by myself and couldn't be happier. 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.

My husband and I just started Nutrisystem. We talked about it for a month before deciding to order and I have to say, We have no regrets. I am pre-diabetic and I am significantly overweight. My husband only needs to lose a few pounds but everyone needs a diet buddy! After scrolling through bank statements we realized that we would actually save money by ordering for the both of us. I think a huge misconception that I have seen on other review sites is that if someone is overweight then ,obviously, they are lazy.

In my case working extremely long hours as a nurse has taken its toll. I never feel like cooking after 12 hour shifts in a psychiatric ward. It was so easy to grab something on the way home from work. My husband also works 12 hour shifts as a supervisor and my youngest is also a nurse working 12 hour shifts. Once we get home we crash and burn.

On days off we are very active. We kayak, ride bikes, walk and work outside nonstop. It's so convenient to come home and have food that's ready to go and good for us.

I have already lost weight and feel great! My weight has been an issue for years but was compounded when my Dad passed away.

All I wanted to do was eat. I'm trying to avoid the same issues he dealt with for the majority of his life. He was diabetic and had heart disease. I think every diet has pros and cons but when you start factoring in heart problems and diabetes then it's a no-brainer. Also check nutrition facts for what you normally eat and I would guarantee that the sodium and preservatives in Nutrisystem aren't nearly as bad as most things that we eat.

I lost 30 lbs last summer. I stopped for a while because I work 2 jobs and Christmas is the busy season for me with my home embroidery biz. So I just ordered once again, this time I opted for the Uniquely Yours plan so I can pick my own food. When you get the Basic Plan you do get a lot of soup and stews which I am not really a fan of. If you do this diet there are some things you can do.

I add cut green peppers and tomato onto my pizza with some garlic salt. I add garlic or other seasonings to the food, which really isn't bad.

Myself, I love the ravioli and chili. I'll eat a slice or 2 of cheese with my meal, plus broccoli, green beans or maybe other veggies. I do have my small glass of tea with my supper so I don't feel like i m deprived. You get out what you put in it. If it's gourmet you want, this is not it. If instead you want to kickstart a happier, healthier life, Nutrisystem is the right way.

Good luck to all here! The Nutrisystem diet has a good concept and the food really is not bad. After one month and lost of 8 lbs, I saw how they balanced out the food and decided I could do the this on my own.

The advertising is a little misleading and unclear. The program at a low price includes an AUTO add on shipments. Hey Des, it actually states at the end of my review that I am an affiliate of Nutrisystem. And the presence of two obvious advertisements for the company also kinda gives the game away. Sure I'm guilty of giving them some promotion Including plus and minus points. This website took a lot of working on — and I don't work for nothing.

The small commission I make for referring people to the company is recompense for my work. Hope that clarifies things for you.

You're obviously selling for Nutrisystem. I don't trust you. Troy, sorry to hear you has so much hassle. But one thing you didn't mention was: Did you take a discount with free shipping and did you then accept at least two orders from Nutrisystem? If you did, then fine, you have every reason to be mad. If you had read my review here before purchasing, you'd see I included that information quite clearly.

It's important that everyone knows about this rule because I often hear from folks who thought they could get a cheap deal for a month and then cancel without paying for any more. But that's not how it works and without knowing, those customers get a surprise they didn't expect when the company charges their card for a second month and ships the food. So for anyone who is reading this and is not sure about what to do: When you place your first order and you only want it for one month, make sure you do NOT take the discount or free shipping or "auto-delivery" option.

In that case, it's best to get Nutrisystem on the phone to place your single-month order—don't do online! Beware, you cannot quit Nutrisystem without a lot of hassle. I tried to quit their autodelivery program online and wasn't allowed to. I was given a phone number to call. I got passed around a couple times until I got to the guy that tries to talk you into staying. I told him when I signed up I used a fake number because I didn't want any calls but yet my home phone is being blown up by you guys.

He guarantee'd I would not. Even gave me a confirmation number: On the 11th I get an email saying my order is ready to ship soon. I contacted Nutrisystem right away and they said it's too late, it already shipped. I have several emails to them explaining all of the above plus spoke to a really rude pushy lady on the phone. Then they tried to accuse me of making a 2nd account in November and their representative only cancelled 1 account.

I never created any 2nd account, I only updated my credit card information which I regret. The only thing that should matter anyway is my name and address and the guarantee I was given that all orders were cancelled.

Their only response is to fight it with my credit company. I have done that and the charges were reversed. However I want all of you to know what kind of people you are dealing with. The left doesn't know what the right is doing in this company and their customer service doesn't even deserve 1 star.

I am so sick of seeing Marie Osmond on the Nutrisystem ads. She is either very desperate for attention or owns part of the company. Please replace her in th ads with other normal people and their testimonials. I have only been on the Turbo 10 system for a week. My take on the system Shelf stable meat has never been my favorite so I opted for mostly frozen dinners and I find them every bit as good as Weight Watchers or Lean Cuisine. I have no issues with the food at all. The bars are similar to any other protein bar.

I can honestly say Marie O. They are so gross and I'm so happy I'm past the Turbo 10 part of my first month. I can't stomach the shakes Stay close to the restroom for the first week! Did anyone else have this problem? I will not be adding them to my regular shipments. I'm still ahead of the game. If I lose 30 pounds I'd be at my target weight for age and height.

I like that it tells me exactly what I can add and in what portions. I can add a yogurt to my breakfast and a tablespoon of vinaigrette to my salad.

Little things make all the difference. I'm not one to usually comment in threads, but thought it appropriate to give back since I read the reviews before starting NS and found them very helpful.

First of all, I'd like to congratulate anyone who has lost weight and even taking the first step in doing so and getting on the road to better health. I've officially completed my first month of NS and have lost 11lbs starting on the Uniquely Yours plan and then customizing my food for my second order. I'm a female in my 30's and have been on many diets before some that worked, and some that did not.

NS has been great so far! It's convenient for those with hectic schedules that don't have the time to constantly measure and prepare food. The only preparation that I need to do is for my additions of fruits and vegetables and my powerfuels proteins. I've done a 1, calorie diet before on my own and was successful, but was always hungry and ended up gaining the weight back because I literally counted every calorie, including my vegetables.

What I like about NS is that they give you a set calorie count to stick to mine is 1, PD , but your non-starchy vegetables are unlimited. This keeps me satiated throughout the day and allows me to go about my day without being hungry, tried and dizzy.

I'm also able to do my workouts days a week with full energy. NS has really re-trained me how to eat again with proper portion control. It's not about eating tiny meals and staying hungry, it's about knowing to eat a small main meal portion and adding healthy vegetables to each meal and snack. The NS meals are not bad tasting either and the desserts are pretty good.

The Flex Meals and eating guides are also very helpful when you have those lunches or dinners that you cannot avoid going to. I also must admit that I allow myself one cheat meal a week as well. Maybe if I was really strict, then I would have lost more weight.

I still have 30lbs to go to hit my goal weight, but I'm going strong and confident that I can do it because the plan's flexibility makes is easy to stick to. Wishing everyone good luck on their weight loss journey! Do you recommend the program for 7 days a week I got the box from Walmart and I like it But it is only for 5 days at a time I've followed Nutrisystem for 8 days now. I bought the 5 day Home-style kit from Walmart while waiting on my 7 day trial kit from NS. The 5 day kit has a slightly different plan than what I take is Nutrisystem's new plan that allowed me a morning plus afternoon snack of one smartcarb plus a powerfuel.

Now it wants me to have a powerfuel with breakfast and for a snack and only one smartcarb. At this point I'm sticking with the original as I have lost 8 lbs. I have 17 total to lose so I am not excessively overweight. I just let things get away the past few months. I'm extremely active and may need to add in some calories if i don't see the weight loss slow down or if i have trouble with my activities.

I bike single track kind of like HIT 1. I am a professional ski instructor and always gain weight in the off season even with the exercise I do. Enough about me and more about the plan. I have done every diet around and follow strict food guidelines to get in shape and maintain normally. I wanted something easy for a change where I didn't have to cook i get so tired of cooking and could still lose weight.

So far I'm thrilled it's working and most food is edible and okay, I have had no issues with my heavy work out schedule or being weak. I eat my small nutrisystem breakfast before going and have the smartcarb and Powerfuel snack when i get back, then lunch an hour later. I want my mother to go on the plan as a way to eat healthier.

She's a senior 82 and won't cook much so eats what ever she can grab from the fridge and it's a very unbalanced diet. After tying it I think it will be awesome for her. To people like " 15 Shirley Says" who said she only lost 3. Imagine if you had stayed with it for 6 months to a year.

In 6 moths there is 26 weeks. You lost over a pound a week. You would weight 26lbs less. In a year you would have lost 50 lbs. Just because you don't see a big drop as you can't exercise at the start, sticking with it will make a huge difference. This was a success story waiting to be written. Try the pick your own food plan which is currently It's not so much when it works and saves you so much time and you won't be going out to eat, stopping at a drive through out of laziness to cook or ordering in food that is very costly.

So far I'm very pleased with the plan and considering ordering it to take to the ski hill with me in the winter where staff accommodation rooms mean a shared fridge and stove which can be difficult to get access and space in.

This would be so nice to keep in a closet! Just need my veggies and fruits in a fridge. 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.

Hey Wilson, I get your point. Hey Alan, good counterpoints. The bottom line is Alan's last paragraph and I can't agree more. In response to Wilson's comment, let's really clear something up. Most Americans spend more per day on feeding their ever expanding bodies with too much junk and additive laden convenience foods. When you're trying to lose weight, you don't buy liquids to drink.

You drink water from your tap because its the best thing to drink. Anything else that comes from the store is packed full of sugar and is just money down the drain and inches on your waist. Yeah, the meals are small. You're on a freakin' diet and teaching your body to get used to eating smaller meals for heaven's sake!

Losing weight is not just about calories. Just read any of the latest articles on news sites and the top diet experts now tell you not all calories are equal. Its the SUGAR and HFCS you need to eliminate from your diet, Then artificial additives, pesticides which you'll find in most non-organic store food , phyto-estrogens non-organic dairy, meat, grains high GI carbs bread, pasta, cookies, cakes, candy etc The food industry is a scary place. OK, Nutrisystem is not the perfect diet, by any stretch of the imagination, I'll grant you.

But it's a good way to get started for many folks that don't want to go counting calories or see a dietitian. Their small, nutritionally balanced meals teach your body to get used to eating smaller meals and to stop eating junk.

The next step is up to the individual to carry that on once the finish the diet. By watching what they eat and drink—and reading the labels on all food produce they buy to avoid the worst offending ingredients. I agree you can lose weight without doing any commercial diet program. Common sense is a pretty powerful thing when it's used. A person's body is their responsibility and if they gain weight, its up to them to actively work of getting back in shape.

No one else can do that for you! Let's clear up a couple of things and make them perfectly clear: Second, the "meals" are microscopic.

Go to any nutrition or calorie count site and plug in Nutrisystem Meals. When the calories in a meal are in the — range, you're not going to have to chew very long to devour the whole thing. Cut your calories to per day. If you can read and if you can add, then it' simple to do and it's a helleva lot cheaper than Nutrisystem or any other diet program.

I actually like the food. Before NS, I would just have a coffee, ladled with creamer for breakfast, eat a nice oversized lunch and probably not eat dinner, but sometimes snack on chips, pretzels, cereal, whatever, while watching TV.

This is teaching me to eat small portions throughout the day. I have always worked really hard to try to be thin, but, have gained 10 lbs over the past few months that will NOT come off. So, I'm using this as a kick-starter to making smarter choices. I look at our metabolism as a fire burning.

If you put one big log on a fire that is almost burned out, it will choke it out; however, if you put kindling, or a few small twigs on it, it will build it back up.

Think of your metabolism in the same way. If you eat smaller meals, more frequently, you are feeding your metabolism, but those big meals that restaurants serve and we, in turn, create, at home , those meals will completely stifle your metabolism and leave you feeing tired and lethargic. Keep up the great work everyone. Hey Nellie, good question. As long as you keep eating small portions, keep your daily calorie count to the same as while you're on the diet and do not return to old bad eating habits like eating junk food or foods high in sugar, drinking soda etc you should not gain weight.

This diet is not just made to make you lose weight, it's designed to teach your body to get used to eating less and to teach your brain to be aware of what you're eating all the time — even when you're not dieting. Bottom line is it's all on you from start to finish whether or not you lose weight and keep it off.

Only you can choose what you eat and drink. Choose wisely and you'll surprise yourself in a nice way! Hey Candie, it's great to hear you're doing really well—32lbs in 2 months is awesome! And that you like the diet and you're fired up to maintain it to lose even more is really inspiring. Come back and give us an update sometime soon, please! Had a very serious health issue and in ICU for 5 days. EVERY physician gave me the same comment—loose weight. I have been on many programs before with little success.

Was up late one night and saw Marie O who looked super—so this fat boomer decided to give the program a try. Have been on program for about 2 months or so. Down from to today. I love the food—of course have some faves, but it works for me and hopefully will continue to on my road to loose another 50 pounds.

Hopefully I won't look like a prune but I will certainly be healthier! Hi Kavitha, thank you for your inquiry. This diet program only ships to United States addresses at present. I'm sorry it is not available internationally but I believe the additional shipping costs would make it very expensive and therefore not attractive to dieters in other countries around the world.

If I may offer some advice: I know that it can take some will power to follow a stricter eating regime, but when you firmly decide for yourself that you will do it because you want to do it, you can surprise yourself at what you are capable of! I live in Kuwait. How do I get this product would like to know how much it cost to loose 20kg. Hey Marilyn, it's great to hear from you that you're off to such a great start.

I agree that adding spices and herbs to the meals can improve the taste and tailor it to what you like to taste even! And yes, yes, yes My husband and I both started this diet, he needs to lose 40 pounds I need to lose ! Our first week he lost 12 pounds and I lost When hungry eat salad is what I tell my husband. He gets more snacks than I do but this to me is a very easy diet to follow. We planted a garden and makes it more fun to grow your own salads!

I think the trick is once you lose your weight to keep it off. But I hope we get to that problem! I talked my husband into doing the diet with me and to tell you the truth, I think it helps him to understand the struggle of sitting next to someone eating foods that you can't have when only one person is on a diet.

No matter what you do in life Hey Liz, Great to hear you're getting on with the diet so well, but gaining 7lbs in just over a week sure sounds strange. My first thought is water retention, which if that's the case could be caused by a sudden change in diet and usually dissipates after several days. It can be caused by increased fiber from the food holding fluid in the digestive tract which is released soon enough as the body gets used to the additional fiber in the diet.

Although it sounds odd, the best way to deal with water retention is to drink MORE water—at least eight or more 8oz glasses per day throughout the day ie not all at once. It helps flush the system and helps with digestion too. If you don't start seeing a drop in weight after another week, my advice is to get in contact with a Nutrisystem counselor and talk it through with them.

They have experts in-house that can help you, so DO make use if that service. You're paying for it as part of the program, after all! Good luck with your progress and I hope things go real well for you. I can say I love it.. I'm on the Diabetic Plan. In the 4 days I've been on the plan I've gained 7 pounds. Please let me know whyyyyyyyyy I gained? Hey Beth, all comments are published, positive or negative as long as they are helpful in some way.

You're doing the right thing in talking to the counselor over any concerns—they're there to help after all! I'd add that you need to drink lots of water every day. Not just for this program, but for your health in any case, because it hydrates you and actually helps with healthy digestion and elimination as well as helping to normalize blood pressure. About 8oz glasses per day is about right.

Good luck and best wishes with your diet for a successful and happy outcome! This will absolutely be a lifesaver for me! I love all these comments and I will be coming back here to read more! I am on my first week of NS This is my 3rd day. I felt really tired yesterday and chatted to the counselor today who added a couple things for me.

I have not cheated at all but my blood pressure is going up some now which has me worried. I saw where the program is under mg Sodium per day which should be ok.

I will be talking to them more if this continues to be a problem. This program is helpful to me I am a comfort eater and eat with my computer or TV so I don't even think about how much I eat. This program thinks for me I am on the woman's basic vegetarian plan and have liked everything so far. I was sent some meat products accidentally in my first shipment but they corrected that quickly and I am being sent other products now.

The cost is high Way less expensive than medication, procedures, etc, if your health goes downhill! 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. Just started my 6th week of NS, 25 lbs. Now I plan to keep going for 2 more months until our anniversary Cancun vacation. NS has a program that allows me to pick and choose my favorites so I want to enjoy the food I like at smaller portions and learn to snack well. Hopefully, I'll take better habits with me when I start buying replacement meals and home cooking with a newer portion-controlled mindset.

Nutrisystem works for me. At times, I'm fully aware of my increased energy and motivation. Losing the desire to junk snack at night is a huge improvement. It is worth the money to spend a few months eating NS to lose weight and change my eating habits. The good news is that I still go out times per week to our favorite bars and restaurants. Love a dirty martini, small appetizer, and seafood or salad combo much more than I did the fatty meals that were NOT worth the money!

Hey Gail, don't feel discouraged—since Feb 15 its only just over 3 weeks and at the recommended rate of weight loss at 2lbs per week, you're actually right on track! I know it's easy to get caught up in the big claims by some of the TV ad featured dieters of 30lbs or more, but the reality is those big numbers take several months to achieve in most cases.

You could and should double that figure inside of two months if you stick with it and stay determined to succeed! I started the NS plan on February I haven't added veggies. I don't feel super deprived likely because of my few side trips but I can't help but feel that I should have lost more weight.

I should probably add that I am 48 and post menopausal — I do work out most days for min either a treadmill or Beach Body videos and I have three labradors who I walk most days they're not strollers! Just feeling a little discouraged but I intend to finish out my second month. Hey RockyRose, it's great to hear you're enjoying the diet and having great success with it.

In my experience, the people who always lost the most weight and kept it off are those that stuck stubbornly to their diet plan while politely but firmly ignoring any conflicting "advice" from friends or family. Everyone naturally has an opinion and often its the wrong ones that derail people from their weight goals if they listen to and take them to heart.

It's always the plan that get results when you stick with it, not those opinions! I've been on Nutrisystem for about two weeks, I'm down ten pounds. I love the program and I love that I'm sticking to it. I think the food is really good, there are a few items that I don't like so I just don't order them. I hope I have good results with this program.

I think the most important thing is making sure I stick to it. You should contact NS customer support for these kind of questions as they'll have the most accurate and correct answers rather than take someone else's opinion whether right or wrong. Can you drink coffee on Nutrisystem? When starting with the Turbo shakes, is it strictly shakes for the first week or using shake as 1 or 2 meal replacements?

Hey Lisa, thanks for the update. It's always real great to hear from you because you have such a great, positive attitude and you're proof that a can-do attitude brings success! Just wanted to give an update! As for the meals, I think they taste great, all except 1 wasn't to my liking! I finished half of it and gave the rest to my unpicky dog!

You do have to add in vegetables but that is fine I feel fuller! I absolutely love the turbo shakes and the nutricrush shakes wish I could drink those all day long! Thanks for having this forum! And good luck to everyone! The Nutrisystem program i think is founded in good ideas. However i have a few complaints. The food is mostly bland and has no real flavor. While portioned well, i still felt like i was lacking something I work out about times a week including playing hockey and it left me hungry.

However the biggest and most annoying thing that really got on my nerves was after paying for the first month, i came to the determination that it was too expensive to continue.

I'm sorry but that's completely absured! Yes i got a discounted price Which is the reason i would be charged but that's no excuse. Thanks but no thanks. I'm very upset that they would treat their customers like this Additionally to cancel, i've been on hold And on the phone as i'm typing this waiting to talk to someone for nearly 30 minutes already Are they purposely trying to make it impossible for you to cancel?

Going back to Weight Watchers so i can eat food that tastes like food, and a system that I have had success with in the past. Hey guys, I get it you have differences of opinion and I'm a believer in everyone gets to say their piece. But unless you really have a genuine grievance with Nutrisystem itself, I don't want to read angry or hateful comments or arguments especially over what you see or don't see on TV.

This is my site and while I let a lot of stuff go, I don't want it to turn into a free-for-all mud-throwing match. Any future hateful or angry comments will get deleted.

Hey John, congrats on losing 20 lbs by the way. That's the kinda thing I enjoy hearing about! Congrats to Nick S and Matt G too — that's some great going guys! Wow, Martin you're some kinda troll. If you see so much of Marie's face on the network, man you're watching too much TV! As for me, I'm glad Marie's still doing it for Nutrisystem. You CAN do it. You just have to order carefully. I wish you luck. You can do, I know you can. It is so nice to read a positive article about Nutrisystem.

You are so right about your body becoming used to the smaller portions. Like anything, your body goes through an adjustment period, but after a few days, it is quite easy. With frequent snacks between meals, as well as plenty of fluids, you are eating pretty much whenever you feel hungry. Hi, thanks for the great review!

Thanks for the nice comment: Excited to hear how Nutrisystem goes for you — let us know! Hi Ellen — You definitely need to talk with your doctor before trying Nutrisystem or any weight loss plan with your health issues, but they do offer a plan for people with diabetes. I would recommend checking out their site to learn more about the different plans they offer. They also offer snacks and shakes as options over the course of the day, so that helps with the extra cravings too.

Hope that helps, and best of luck with your weight loss journey! Someone in my Myspace group shared this website with us so I came to give it a look. Exceptional blog and brilliant design and style. Thanks for the kind words and for visiting the site — let me know your Twitter handle so I can return the favor!

Those first 2 weeks i dropped 13 lbs, but that third week i lost maybe 1 lb. I was only eating the provided meals the first two weeks usually around only calories per day obviously that was unhealthy, so i added in a few snacks to put me right around calories per day. But unfortunately that has resulted in minimal weight loss.

Did you have plateaus like this? And how did you over come these stalls? I did just purchase an elliptical and also a stationary bike, but only on day 2 with those. Your review was wonderful and very well written, so thank you! Hi Julie- Thank you so much for sharing your story, and way to go for making it through your first month! I think the calorie restriction is the hardest part about Nutrisystem, and why now I typically only do the diet for a month or two and then really focus on just eating right and getting enough exercise after that.

For me, the approach after Nutrisystem has been intermittent fasting IF. That said, I have had a lot of success with it, and find that I can maintain a healthy weight for long stretches of time when using it. I started with the turbo charge and continued now for almost 3 weeks. I have only lost 3 lbs. When I emailed a counselor they said that was normal and I was doing well. Big hope very disappointed.

In any case, hope the rest of your month goes well, and best of luck moving forward. I just started Nutrisystem. I always lost weight on the low carb diet when I was younger. But the fat intake was not good. Just to avoid all the carbs… Did you or anyone else have a issue with how many carbs are in each meal?

Is this ok lol… Please someone assure me all the carbs are ok! Thanks for visting, and best of luck with your first month! Thanks for the excellent review and videos. Excited to see what kind of progress I can make. Hi Krystal — thanks for visiting the site, and taking the time to read my review and watch the videos. Always happy to hear that it helped! Thanks for the great info and for sharing your story! Thanks for the kind words, June!

Congrats on taking the first step and best of luck with Nutrisystem — hope it goes well! I mastered more new things on this fat reduction issue. An enormous reduction in junk food, sugary foods, fried foods, sugary foods, beef, and white flour products may perhaps be necessary. Holding wastes unwanted organisms, and wastes may prevent ambitions for fat-loss. While specific drugs for the short term solve the situation, the unpleasant side effects are certainly not worth it, plus they never present more than a short-term solution.

Many thanks sharing your thinking on this weblog. Thanks for the input Saul. Have you ever considered creating an ebook or guest authoring about Nutrisystem on other sites? I know my readers would appreciate your work. If you are even remotely interested, feel free to send me an email. Hi Lance — I actually do have an eBook in the works, so stay tuned for that! I just wanted to say that this post is awesome, well written and lots of useful Nutrisystem info. Looking forward to my first shipment.

Hi Corburt — Thanks for the kind words, and best of luck with your first month — hope it goes well! I just wanted to offer you a huge thumbs up for the great information you have right here on this post. I will be returning to your site for more soon! This blog looks exactly like my old one! Great choice of colors! Really inspired by your story — thanks for sharing! I am planning to start Nutrisystem after the New Year.

Hi Erin — Thanks so much for the positive feedback. The first time I ever used Nutrisytem, which was many years ago at this point, I think I was one it for 4 months. I had a lot more weight to lose then; now when I sign up, I usually use it for a month, maybe two at the most. To lock in the auto delivery deal, you have to commit to two months, so if you hit your weight loss goals after month 1, I recommend switching your order to just the Turbo Shakes — that will ensure you lock in the most savings, and also helps to keep you on track once you start transitioning off the program.

As I have said before, you have to be committed to the program to get results, but as long as you follow their plan you will lose weight! Anyways, best of luck and please let us know how it goes: Thanks for sharing your story. Drinking over ounces and eating tons of leafy greens. I did NS about 4 years ago lost almost This past July was told my chloerstral and blood pressure was too high for 28 year old.

So black Friday I ordered when prices decreased. Hi Amanda — Thanks for visiting and reading my story. Hope it goes as well this time around. Thanks for sharing your superb review. You have a lot of good info here. I am looking for a diet to try just after the new year, and this might be the one.

Either way, appreciate all of the details you shared. Thanks, just what I was looking for. I have about 20 pounds to lose — is this doable in a month or two? Hi Sam — Thanks for the positive feedback. Losing 20 pounds is definitely doable with Nutrisystem, but I would budget at least two months. I signed up for Nutrisystem this week, and I am really hoping that I have the same results. I think my first shipment should arrive just before Christmas, so think I will get started right after the holiday.

Thanks so much for the review — definitely gives me hope! Hi Kris — congrats on signing up — while results will vary for everyone, I truly believe that you will lose a lot of weight if you follow the program — so stick with it, and let us know how it goes. They try to rip you off when quit their auto delivery program. Very very unpleasant people to deal with. They shipped me stuff 3 days after I had already cancelled and had a confirmation number stating I cancelled. They refused to turn the shipment around or to take it back and are trying to create some kind of lie that I created a 2nd account in November and they only cancelled one account.

The only thing I did in November was update my credit card expiration date which I regret. If I guaranteed no more shipments are coming to my name or my address that should be the end of the story, not with them! I am fighting them through my credit card company but please be aware of whatever traps they have in store for any of you. Hi Troy — Sorry to hear that that was your experience. It was actually a customer service rep who told me I could switch from the meal delivery to just the Turbo Shakes after my first month on the program to lock in the auto-delivery savings without having to commit to another month of food.

In any case, I hope you are able to get things resolved! I started the program today, January 1st. My resolution is to feel better about myself, but do it in a healthy way that had structure. How much and when I should be eating vegetables, and ideas on what to eat if you have to attend a social function or business based meeting that involves food.

Thanks for posting a well written, and information overview of this program. I have three questions and maybe one is a question for a NS counselor… 1. Or can tomatoes, cukes, etc.

Also, plain or with some sort of dressing? How many turbo shakes can you have per week… and when can they be consumed? Thanks in advance …. Hi Tami — Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to comment!

I always add extra veggies to my greens and have found the only thing you really need to watch out for is the salad dressing. But for me, cucumbers, tomatoes, etc. I usually have my TurboShake midday — around 2: That said, I would definitely suggest using the Nutrisystem counseling service for full clarification, though — especially for questions 2 and 3. Best of luck if you decide to try the full program! I wanted to say that this article is nicely written and included almost all the vital info I needed.

Thanks for the review. I second your recommendation for Nutrisystem. Their service helped me significantly a few years ago. Hoping for the same results! Hi Maria — thanks for commenting! Hope it goes well again if you decide to give it another try. Have you found that Nutrisystem is a good way for keeping the weight off over the long term? How long do you really have to be on Nutrisystem before you starting seeing results? Just finished month 1 and lost about 9 pounds!

This post could not be written any better! Reading this post reminds me of my good old room mate! He was always trying new weight loss products.

I will forward this page to him. Fairly certain he will have a good read. Thank you for sharing! I just read this well written post. I have a handicapped daughter who has gained so much weight. We have tried everything with very little success. After taking to her doctors we decided to give NS a try.

She started the program on February 16, She is loving the food and the program. She has already dropped three pounds. Her beginning weight was So she has a long way to go. But the support and your post will definitely help her obtain her goals for healthier lifestyle.

We will keep you informed on her progress. Thank you so much. Hi Shirley — What an inspirational story — really hoping she has success! Thanks for keeping us posted, and wishing your daughter all the best. I suppose its ok to use some of your ideas!! I have been on Nutrisystem for about 5 weeks now. I lost 15 pounds the first month and have been following it to a T. The food tastes fine and it is very easy to just grab something pop it in the microwave if necessary and go.

I have been using My Fitness Pal to track my food and am eating about calories a day. The first week was really tough and I had a hard time, but I stuck to it. Now I m satisfied and use to it. Planning on finishing up the second month and then on the 3rd month working in more home cooked meals and tracking to stay at the same calorie level.

Then will switch over to the auto ship of Turbo shakes for my 4th month. I have about 40 pounds to lose and feel like I am making some good headway with the Nutrisystem plan. Good job on the review, very well written. Wow, nice job Carolyn! Thanks for sharing your story, and best of luck with the rest of your diet. I was very happy to find this website. Just wanted to thank for your time for this wonderful read, and inspirational review!!

Hi Kelly — sorry to hear that! Have you tried connecting with the Nutrisystem counseling service? We had to take Nutrisystem program for 8 weeks because we got it at a discount thru our insurance company. My goal was to loose 30 lbs. At the end of the 8 weeks I had lost only 3 lbs. We did not care for the cardboard like food and did not get anywhere close to our goals. This program obviously works for lots of folks, but not for us.

We did go to the Naturally Slim program and in 8 weeks I lost Naturally Slim is based on not what you eat but when and how you eat and you eat your own real food and got real results. We will stay with our new habits learned with Naturally Slim and will not have any good words from our Nutrisystem experience. Hi John — thanks for sharing your experience.

Thanks so much for sharing your story.
