Being overweight had me living a life with lots of limits. I am very disappointed with the food. While on the Nutrisystem program I received the shelf stable foods and the fresh frozen foods too. Transition and maintenance plan: I am able to make it through the day without feeling sleepy at all.

I still have a drink occasionally, but try to keep it limited to social gatherings and not an everyday thing. In any case, best of luck with your weight loss journey! Norman, you seem to know the NS diet very well. I have been on this diet around 7 years ago and I see a few new changes this time. My order has arrived and I unpacked my Turbo Box yet did not keep that food separate, and now i am really unsure of what was in it for my first week…. Best of luck with the program. Hope that helps -NS.
You want to be at your goal weight then, not wishing you did something about it yrs ago. No, you cannot pound them back, but I am not sure why you would want to anyway. Co-workers always ask me to go out for a drink and they order whatever and I order a diet coke.
You could blame it on medication if you want. When I go out to eat or go to cookouts, etc. I order a meat and a vegetable with a diet soda. No potato or anything. At a cookout it would be a burger or chicken with no bread, and a tossed salad or veggie. 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! Before receiving my first month of food I began to walk with my husband on the weekends. At first it was quite a struggle to keep a good pace for an hour. We worked at it and I got more endurance and strength. I worked up to walking miles and miles without any trouble at all now. I also got some workout DVDs and some hand weights to use at home.
When I signed up for Nutrisystem I committed to changing my life once and for all. Nutrisystem is the only weight loss program I have ever participated in. I have tried counting calories and that does work for me. I just never stuck to it long enough to see any significant results. I have an addictive personality. Food has been my drug for a long time.
I knew it was going to be difficult to kick the habit but Nutrisystem gave me the tools I needed to be successful. Some people prefer to have one final binge but I did not. I got my first order just before the Christmas holidays. Some people are able to allow some planned indulgences but I am not one of those people. One thing I want to emphasize in this Nutrisystem review, is that before Nutrisystem I felt sluggish and tired most of the time.
I do have a very busy schedule and get up super early but there is no reason for me to be tired all the time. Nutrisystem helped me to increase my fruit and vegetable intake.
I hardly ate any of them before. Now I have four servings of veggies and at least 2 fruits each day. I am able to make it through the day without feeling sleepy at all. I am always able to keep up with friends and family.
I do not get out of breath or tired when we are doing physical activity now. A few months into my weightloss journey I started to get a lot of compliments.
Everyone was noticing the improvement and letting me know that I was looking good. I was encouraged to keep going with the compliments.
I kept telling people to just wait and see what I looked like when I finally reached my goals. How Successful is Nutrisystem? Actually I continued with that trend all the way through to the end when I reached my goal. I could lose more weight now if I chose to by following the same plan.
Nutrisystem really does make it easy for you. They have it all planned out and show you how to be successful when trying to lose weight.
Nutrisystem suggests you work out each day for 30 minutes. I have followed those guidelines. I do a DVD each morning before work. The DVD is anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour. I like to vary my workout so that I do not get bored doing the same things over and over. I have some stress in my life and exercise is my stress relief.
I lost over pounds — Nutrisystem Results. I lost over pounds using Nutrisystem and surprisingly I do not have a lot of hanging extra skin.
My Nutrisystem before and after photo proves that. I attribute that success to my exercise. I know that the exercise has given me the shape that I have now and the muscles that keep me energetic and healthy.
I have read a number of Nutrisystem reviews where people say that Nutrisystem is hard. Honestly it was never hard for me to stick to the Nutrisystem plan. I believe that it was easy for me because of the results that I was seeing. You are able to customize the plan to your personal likings and tastes.
I am pleased with the amount of flexibility that Nutrisytem provides. I like to eat a variety of foods and with Nutrisystem I am able to do that and still lose the weight. I am an all or nothing person so I was all in with this program and it provided me with the results that kept me motivated to stick with it until I reached my goal and even beyond into maintenance.
From Size 24 to Size 4 — Is Nutrisystem worth the money? I started out wearing a size 24 and now I have shorts as small as a 4. Nutrisystem is worth it.
Each week when I stepped on that scale and noted another loss in weight I felt proud. Having success is very motivational. I did hit some bumps in the road. Sometimes life throws us curve balls. So no matter what happened in my life or at work, I just kept on keeping on.
I like the structure that Nutrisystem provides. I like eating on schedule. I like knowing what I am going to eat and when I am going to eat it. Nutrisystem is perfect for me. I have to admit that I was skeptical at first. I thought it sounded too good to be true. Nutrisystem commercials seem like the program would be very simple and easy to follow. I never understood how someone with so much weight to lose like I had could eat the same things as someone with just a few pounds to lose.
It seemed to me that we would need different programs but with Nutrisystem we can both use the same program and still be successful. Cutting back on eating out and choosing Nutrisystem instead saved me money.
As other Nutrisystem reviews attest, you have to follow the plan. You have to exercise. You have to drink your water. You have to avoid alcohol. You have to eat your fruits and veggies. You have to put in the work and you will see the Nutrisystem results. Calories in versus calories burned. I like the whole idea of Nutrisystem because with the plan you are still eating regular foods. You are given the tools you need to succeed and transition back into eating regular foods again once you have reached your goal.
The first few months I had to log what I ate each day. I also logged the amount of exercise that I did. Now I am able to do the logging in my head. I eat more now than I did when I was actively trying to lose weight but I still monitor my weight and if I see it going up I just go back to doing what I did to lose the weight and keep it down where it needs to be.
Weight is going to be a lifelong battle for me. I am always going to have to exercise and watch what I eat but now I know how to do it. I know that if I do find myself gaining weight I can lose it again. I am going to be very attentive to my body and keep watching myself to try and never be overweight again. I fluctuate between and pounds lost now. I went from weighing in at pounds to weighing somewhere around I have been as low as but it seems to stay right around I have been maintaining for nearly a year.
It took me right at a year to reach my goal. I lost pounds a week each week the whole time I was following the plan. I am still amazed at how far I have come.
When I fold my clothes I have a hard time believing how small my clothes are now. I wear a Medium size shirt and in pants. I have some small dresses and shorts.
I can wear clothes for nearly any store. I used to be limited in where I could shop, but not anymore. While I was losing weight my sister also joined Nutrisystem. She lost over 70 pounds and really enjoyed the program as well. She lost her weight a lot quicker than I did.
She was inspired to join because she saw me losing weight. My sister is a little older than me and after having two children she felt as though she would never get the baby weight off.
Nutrisystem made it possible for her to get the baby weight off. Nutrisystem provides counselors to help you with your plan. You can call and talk to them when you hit a plateau.
You can also use the forums on the Nutrisystem website to connect with other people using the program. With Nutrisystem you will never feel as though you are doing this on your own. You have a whole support system. They have been around over 40 years and they are here to stay because they really do know what they are doing.
