In my opinon the Zone and Atkins are too strict. Real woman have curves: The foods are healthy, low cholesterol, low fat, whatever, I knew that I was getting proper nutrition with Nutrisystem but damn,the weight loss took forever!
Or more like, never. I lost 9 lbs in 12 weeks and am trying to learn how to prepare healthy meals on my own, and exercise more.
So I guess I learned from the program? Not worth the money, for me. Well, now I am mortified…. Who cares about Marie Osmond, or Valerie Bertinelli or anyone who gets paid to say they lost weight with the program? In name, not personal accounts. It was familiar and I joined. Or I you stuck with it for a long time? Are Nutrisystem meals high in sodium, does anybody know? And it came back. So I went back on, lost more. It still had the same yo-yo effect that I was trying to get away from.
It took awhile but i learned my lesson. I think thats bad if your pregnant or breastfeeding, btw. Ok, this is for all of you who want an honest opinion of Nutrisystem. I purchased this because of all the skinny girls on the commercial.
I figured I had nothing to lose. I had previously checked the company out and found out they had many complaints regarding orders not being filled with requests and addressed this with the sales person.
She assured me this was a past issue which had been cleared up. I told her exactly what I wanted in my order. They want you to add fruits and veggies so prep was longer. The food itself scaled from just ok eatable to really not worth eating. Very plain untasty food.
Funny, almost all the italian type foods tasted exactly the same. I think they may use the same sauce on all of it. Some of the bars were good. I liked the cookies, of course. I hated the pizza, cheeseburger and chicken sandwich.
It was a sad lesson, one I wished I would have believed after reading so many complaints about the taste of the food. I did not lose, and luckily I did not gain any weight. I was on Jenny Craig and gained 7 lbs, previously. The company did return my money after I sent back the box.
Keep all your shipping material, especially the huge box it comes it. It will help you return it, if needed. Good luck, whatever you choose. Laura of Fair Oaks. I tried Nutrisystem on and off for a few years.
I intend to do it again right after the holidays which are coming up. THe portions are too small, so you are just setting yourself up for failure. THe food all tastes the same and it got very boring for me. I lost an amazing amount of weight on the program when they had centers in various towns. I liked the food and found it very simple and easy to prepare my meals.
The best part of the system was the wonderful iced tea mix they used to have. Oh and also the frozen yoghurt I made myself each evening. Anyway, I was going to go with the program again but after reading about comments on how horrible the food is, and the lack of customer service, especially to credit card paying customers I am going to pass—dog food does not appeal to me!!!! After hearing from some of you that havnt lost anything, I guess 10 s a month isnt nothing to gripe about. I tend to have a very hard time losing weight being over 40 and having polysystic ovarian syndrome really hinder weight loss.
I dont follow the diet to the letter. I usually just eat the breakfast lunch and dinner entrees plus a salad with dinner. Probably not so healthy but it is working. I was reading another article earlier about the NS diet written by a Dr. They suggested doing the weight watchers diet. WW being a cheaper plan and you can buy it at the grocery store.
A lot of people have had GI problems with NS and headaches. So if the nutrisystem diet is giving you problems consider weight watchers. It gives you the same convenience of boxed portion controlled foods without the side effects and the very high sodium content.
Good luck to everyone. This program is not any good. The pictures look good, but the food was so bland. I was always hungry after eating. I love chocolate, but what they send you is not chocolate!!! You need to find time in your busy day to work out even if for twenty minutes a day.
The only way you are going to lose weight is to get your body moving! I work as much as 80 hours per week and still find time to raise my child, have a life and workout! You are never to busy if you want to do it! It is not a fix all and I was thinking about trying it but have decided my wil power has helped and will get me losing the weight that I would like not need to lose.
I think the issue here is, whether or not Nutrisystem is a viable diet plan. And, the food is just not edible. I gave it a go for a month, and felt lighter, but nothing significant. IT just is Not a good diet.
I tried Nutrisystem almost 2 years ago wanting to lose 30 lbs. I stayed on the plan about 9 months. The food was okay, but at the time I was very motivated due to being close to my delivery weight with my first child. However, I truely believe that this soy base system messed with my menstral cycle. All but 10 lbs are back, and and my cycle is back to normal.
I did NS faithfully for 2months and did loose 20 lbs. It helps you determine food portions very well, if you are an overeater. The food I feel is pretty good and convientant but not something I could live on for a long period of time. The downfall I found was a lot of flatulence. So it works but not fast. Being disabled and elderly I thought this would be great. Heavy on tomato usage in most if not all meals. Would not recommend it. Did not lose weight.
Weight loss, no matter what kind, takes alot of hard work! So it was really just a failure for me. I have lost 17 of the 30 lbs i need to lose and i feel great.
I have been on Nurtisystem for 3 months and have lost 40 lbs. It does work if you follow the plan. Also drinking water is key in losing the weight. I am glad I started this program.
I like the convience of it. The trouble is, NutriSystem is a portion control diet and once you are off of it you dont really learn how to choose portions sizes. And also because the food is so terrible you end up wanting to eat a LOT.
Nutrisystem worked for me. I never lost my pregnancy weight. In 4 months, I lost 30 pounds with daily walking and ounces of water a day. I went from pounds to pounds. The first two weeks were horrible. My body was detoxing from everything bad I was putting into my body and portion sizes that were for someone ten times my size. After the first month I lost 10 pounds and I knew I was on my way to a healthier lifestyle. This diet worked for me. I was running marathons, going to the gym five days a week and watching my diet before Nutrisystem and I was only able to maintain my weight.
I tried it because I read a blog just like this one too. I told myself that if it worked, then I would blog it everywhere. So i do have to agree with Amanda;s post that NutriSystem is good for teaching portion control, but so is Weight Watchers. Once I learned what a normal healthy portion size looked like, I took it from there, added some Hoodia Bites and the weight continued to come off. The craptastic food that made you fat is bad. And you can learn portion control while on the program.
All you have to do is pay attention to the size of the portions that you are eating while on the program. That means using your eyes, something that you have with you all the time. How do I know this? I lost over 70 pounds on the program and have maintained my weight loss for over a year.
I too thought the food was really bad, maybe the worse I have even had. You have to really get used to the taste of the foods, and some of the deserts were tolerable. My biggest issue with the Nutri System food was that it would give me headaches. During the first week I used the product, I started getting headaches, and was told it just might be that my body has to get use to the change in my diet.
I tried the food for a few more weeks, and still thing happened but at this time I had severe headaches, were I could not function for the rest of the day. Has anyone else been receiving headaches with the Nutri System meals? I had to finally give up on this product. Alot of people complain about this being very expensive.
What do they say about exercise? No pain no gain. So it hurts your pocketbook for a few months. If you are not willing to spend any money on making yourself a thinner, happier or healthier person then obviously you want to stay heavy the rest of your life. How much did it cost you to get fat in the first place? No more fat jeans for me!! I feel it is very affordable if you weigh the facts.
Now factor in what it would cost you for a membership at the gym. You get a free exercise video with your first order from nutrisystem. There is no measuring or counting of anything you just grab a container, pop it in the microwave and eat. If you work, thats much easier than packing a lunch daily or cheaper than the cost of eating lunch out. How much easier can it be? Where have you people been eating, at five star restaurants? The food is not bad at all.
It may not taste like the food you cook at home but the food you cook makes you fat. After all the lay-offs that hav occurred in my company lately, I;m more worried about being able to pay hte mortgage, so Nutri-System is out.
I have been very pleased so far with Nutrisystem. So far, so good! I like it OK. It works for me. Is the food the best I have ever had.. I have found I like the soups the most. Today is January 6 and I am just beginning the program. I love to cook and love to eat, and that was my problem with losing weight. While cooking I would sample this and that, and when it came down to eating with the family, I would add a second serving and a 3rd enjoying the good food and conversation, always justifying it to my family that a little more was ok and hey, healthy and organic if that was an ingredient I used.
Or, that I was rushed or tired and had to eat a bit more to feel better and fill up my hunger. I really like Nutrisystem. I am not sampling what I cook, not munching on goodies around the house, because I know what I have waiting for me for each meal and what I am allowed to have for snacks and dessert. I needed that control and that accountability.
Its already prepared and waiting for me. Its not gourmet food, but its good and filling. If it were gourmet, there would be no stopping me from finishing it up and then some. I have tried every other diet known to man and woman, and I feel this is a good start to relearning how to eat and to control ourselves.
I found nutrisystem to be too severe and the foods to be not very good. I feel very hungry and deprived most of the time.
I think about pizza and cheese fries all the time. I think i need to switch to a more moderate diet or else I am going to blow it. I think i might try the Five Factor diet bcs they let you cheat every so often. I am looking for a Real diet now, and i just wanted to stop on here and tell yall that this is not any permannent answer.
Most of you people on this blog, all you do is complaining. Nutrisystem works, it is the cheapest delivery program out there, add it up, you eat for under 10 bux a day! Get a hobby, start exercising. My input for you all big complainers. It works, get off your lazy butts! About 2 years ago, I had very little tolerance for anyone who lacked the discipline to stick to Nutrisystem. For me, it was easy. All i had to do was follow the instructions, and i would see resuults.
Nutrisystem sent me the food, the portions were determined, I knew exactly what i had to eat, and when. In some ways, it was the easiest thing ever. By the time i finished the program, i had lost 34 lbs. In the beginning of my transition back to regular food, i did well. I measured out all of my portions so that they would be as small as the pre-packaged meals.
But then over the next year, my habits began to slowly slip. Soon, those friends of mine who i had judged before, had sympathy in their eyes for me turns out they were more compassionate toward me than i ever was to them, and for that i am grateful. For the people that have issues with they lack of weight loss…What kind of work out plan are you on? A special meal plan will not do all the work for you, you still need to get out there and be active, it is still food and you should be doing a little extra to help yourself too!
Nutrisystem is healthy meals and very convenient. After bein on the program for 3 mos, however, I founf that I only lost about 6 lbs. I am needing to loose close to 60lbs still and was expecting,to doit with this program.
ITs back to the drwaing board now. It was a pretty good start for me, for learning portion control however, I did not find Nutrisystem be quite a comprehensive enought program for me. Maybe its bcs I push myself so hard now, exerciseing, but the weights coming off faster and I actually am enjoying the process. Well I am only in my third week of Nutrisystem and literally felt like i was being starved to death. After 2 months,I just had enough NutriSystem foods to last a lifetime.
They just got old, esp. Its more toleralbe this way, to diet. Trying to lose a few: The first was for six months or so, and during that time I was able to lose 40 pounds. I did it without eating all of the extra fruit, vegetables and water that they recommend. I went off of the diet and began comfort food and stress food eating again, gaining all of the weight back. Until my system got used to the food over several weeks, it was an unpleasant experience.
The diet will work if you apply yourself to it and can manage to find something you like and stick to it. My hubby and I do not mind the food — add in fruits , veggies, yogurt as recommended and its not so bad, BUT the gas NutriSystem produces is horrible! We avoid being in public places sometimes because it is so bad! I have fewer problems with nutrisystem than I do my own willpower. I used it for three months and lost 15 lbs. Then I went back to eating less health and some of the weight has returned.
Eat the fruit and veggies you get from the store to supplement. I sometimes add the veggies to the dinner. Plus I seldom feel hungry. The basic principles are solid for the nutrisystem diet.
Whatever you decide to do, make sure you continue to eat the fruits and veggies and salad and the eight glasses of water.
Lost 2 lbs so far so, gonna stick with it and hope i lose about 8 times that next month. The NutriSystem customer service dept lies too much,i am disapointed with the program.
I have just completed week 1 of Nutrisystem and I have to say, I am surprised by how the food tastes. Honestly, if you can eat a Lean Cuisine or a Weight Watchers meal, you can eat this. I drink all my water and walk for 25 mins, 3x a week and have lost 5lbs. Just weighed in at a total of 27 lbs lost, this morning, after 2 mos of doing this my own way! If you think your going to get gourmet meals.
This is not for you. Some of the food is quite good. Cheesy nachos and the super sized fries, are how we got fat. If you want to eat a lot of food, you are going to stay fat.
Cutting calories if the only way. Sorry, I love food too, but its our choice stay fat or eat less. I recently started buying some South Beach Diet meals and i enjoy the flavor of them a lot better…and for extra support i signed up for the South Beach Diet online. I went on the NS program in and lost 40 pounds in about 3 and half months. I have manaed to keep the weight off. The first week was the worst for me because i was used to eating what i wanted when i wanted.
So eating those portion controlled meals stil made me hungry. I lost 6 pounds the first week and that was my motivation to stay on the diet. The second week my stomach got used to the smaller portions. The food tasted ok. Most of it was edible. The second month i customnized my order. However I did have a problem with a few of the items I ordered not being in stock. I exercised five days a week and sheded 3 to 4 pounds a week. The NS plan was successful for me.
I went from a size to a I have been using Nutrisystem for 2 months now and have gained 2 pounds. I have been on the program now for 5 days. I am not having a problem with the taste, or dealing with hunger. The fresh vegetables, fruit,dairy, and protein I add during meal time,and snack time keeps me totally satisfied. My problam is the bloat, and gas. Does anyone know why this is happening,and if it eventually subsides.
I work in the retail industry,out in the public, so at times it is very uncomfortable. Is anyone else experiencing this, and do you know what it is from? You have to try a lot of different foods until you find the ones you like — just like any new food! How many of you that are giving this negative feedback actually supplemented this with regular exercise and I mean actually breaking a sweat, not just walking?
It seems like almost every negative post makes absolutely no mention of physical exercise. Can someone please reply that actually exercised regularly along with this and let me know your results?
It sounds like all the negativity is coming from people looking for an excuse to not loose weight. I have not had any problem following the diet and sticking to it.
I have been making an effort to walk in the morning and in the evening to make sure I help boost my dead metabolism. Here is my take on Nutrisystem. I have been on it for a bit and I am mostly pleased. Certainly anyone could go to the store and buy food to equal calories a day for women and lose the weight. So far, so good. As for maintenance, you do wean yourself off of the NS food and learn portion control as you go. It is all in how you choose to live your life.
Although portions are small, I am not starving. The food is actually better than expected, especially after reading the above reviews. Boy was I scared!!! LOL Anyway…I was wondering does it matter if you eat all the food suggested or not?
I tried Nutisystem before my wedding and followed it to a T. I lost 8 pounds in one month. I really like the system, food comes to you, just grab and go for work. Lost 20 pounds, plan on loosing 20 more. My mom is signing up this week.
I even eat the dinners for lunch and lunch for dinners because the dinners have more calories and I can burn off the higher calories during work. My snacks of course are all the chocolate items. No complaints from me. I am not sure how you people stand it, the food is just horrible!
I grew up in a farm where we cook everything from scratch, I love food, some people even call me foodie, there is no way on earth I could last on the Nutrisystem. I am just gonna join a gym and and making watch my sugar and carb.
