Nutrisystem Basic Plan Reviews
My favorite meal of the day is breakfast. I still lost weight! The other reason this program is so great is that now that I can control my food intake, I can also start working on my exercise routine. We love to eat out on the weekends, and I know this Restaurant Guide is going to help me a lot. I have lost 22 pounds on the program while eating things like chocolate cake.
What You Can Eat and What You Can't
But some items that you buy from the grocery store, like vegetables and fish, may involve more preparation. Nutrisystem suggests you get at least 30 minutes of physical activity daily. You can break this up into three minute periods throughout the day.
There are meal plans for vegetarians and people with diabetes. But the program does not have plans for people following a vegan diet.
And it doesn't allow for certain food allergies including soy or peanut allergies , and it's not gluten-free. The cost varies based on things like the plan you choose -- such as for women or men, vegetarians, older adults, or people with diabetes. The program has an online community and web-based tools, as well as help by phone. You may face a challenge when you go off the program and have to make more food choices on your own. The program provides information on how to do this. Controlling calories and portions and eating regular meals is a healthy formula that should result in weight loss while on the plan.
It can be harder to make the transition to eating "real food" when you get closer to your weight-loss goal and don't rely on meals already made for you. Overall the diet is healthy for people with conditions like heart disease , high blood pressure , high cholesterol , and diabetes. Meals are low in sodium, saturated fats , and trans fats , and include high-fiber whole grains, smart carbs, healthy fats , lean protein, and a wide variety of foods.
The Nutrisystem diet is the ultimate in convenience. The real question is whether you can continue to lose weight or maintain your weight when you are no longer relying on the prepackaged foods.
The Promise Nutrisystem aims to simplify weight loss. You're discouraged from eating out, and advised to mostly avoid alcohol. For desserts and snacks, you might have brownies, cake, or cookies. Overall, the foods and meal plans focus on: Packaged foods or meals: Is It Good for Certain Conditions?
If you have a medical condition, be sure to talk to your doctor before starting the program. The Double Chocolate Muffins are my absolute favorite.
The other really great thing about this plan is the Restaurant Guide. I've been on it for over a year and only lost 45 pounds. My support group keeps telling me to stick with it longer, claiming that if you stick with the plan you will lose all the weight you want. I've read on the NS support forums that 45 pounds is great, but I had hoped that I woul dhave lost pounds by now.
Maybe I'll need to start excercising afterall. I have lost a total of 25 pounds on the Nutrisystem diet. I know that should make me give them 5 stars, but I have to be honest.
I do not like the snacks that I have tried, especially the soy chips. I think they taste like paper. That said, I do really like the meals, especially the breakfast choices. The muffins and granola bars taste really good. So do the cereals. The lunches are pretty good, but I absolutely love the pasta dishes for dinner.
I am really happy with the weight loss, and this plan has, by far, been the easiest plan to implement. I feel full after I eat, and this is the first weight loss program where I have felt like that. I have lost 32 pounds and finally feel like I may make my goal of losing I wasn't thrilled with the food when I started, but now that I can choose the foods that I really like it is much better. I love the pizzas loaded with red pepper or onions and pineapple.
We've had out of town company and been to many family gatherings, where I used to overeat. I find that when I have my own food that I like and because I am rarely hunger now, that the temptation to cheat is just not there. I also love most of the desserts, but who doesn't: I am not one for exercise, so the weight loss plans where they say you have to exercise 5 times a week really turn me off.
I know that Nutrisystem encourages exercise, but in two weeks I have lost 5 pounds without exercising at all. The food plan is so incredibly easy. I love that I just open up the boxes, and there is my food, ready for me to eat without having to cook or shop.
I am so happy to have someone else decide the details of what I should eat, but that I still have choices. I also am thrilled that I am losing weight without having to exercise at all.
Nutrisystem is the easiest weight loss system out there. I am so happy with how it is working for me. I think I can really meet that initial goal that I set for myself. Five years ago I lost 62 lbs on NS, but over the years I gained back 38 lbs. Now I am back on the system and intend to stay until I reach my goal weight. My co-worker is using Jenny Craig but it was just to cost prohibitive for me. I've tried her meals and honestly didn't think they were as tasty as Nutrisystems are.
I ordered my first round of Nutrisystem meals so that I could get them and start on January 1st. I am so happy with the results, because only two week into the plan, I have already lost six pounds. I am single, and it is much easier to just go through a drive-thru window for fast food than it is to cook for one person. The lunches and dinners are the very best thing about this plan.
The food tastes so great. I absolutely love the Hearty Beef Stew because it reminds me of the stew my mom used to make for me when I was a kid. And I adore the Macaroni and Cheese as well.
When I started the program I did not know if I would stick with it. Diets can be hard to stick with sometimes. However, the Nutrisystem plan is not hard to stick with. The plan is laid out so simply that anyone can follow it. The Nutrisystem plan comes with a money back guarantee. If a person joins the program and does not like it he can receive his money back. The plan is so easy to follow.
I have lost 22 pounds on the program while eating things like chocolate cake. Unlike Medifast, the food is delicious. If you are thinking of trying the plan but are afraid that you will not like the food please stop worrying.
The Nutrisystem plan comes with a great menu with foods on the menu that are very delicious. I have lost three pounds, which I am thrilled about. However, I walk around really hungry! The problem is, it tastes so good that I want more of it. The Thick Crust Pizza tastes amazing. So does the Sweet and Sour Chicken. I am told that this will get easier soon because eating less than I am used to eating will make my stomach shrink.
I think the Restaurant Guide will be helpful once I get over my portion control issue. I guess part of losing weight is feeling hungry, but that is not something I am used to. Just 65 Pounds Left To Go 4 out of 5 stars. I am on my 10th day on Nutrisystem and I absolutely love it! The food is great and a lot better tasting than Jenny Craig. I have lost 8 pounds so far and am really excited. I have 65 more to go to reach my goal weight.
The website is full of good information and tons of motivation which I need and love!! Anyone can do this diet. I still lost weight! I have lost about ten pounds so far. I feel like it should be a little more than that, but have you ever heard of someone losing ten pounds during the holidays?
And honestly, I probably ate too much on my free days. I am a true Nutrisystem fan! The best part of Nutrisystem is that I have lost weight with a program that is extremely easy to follow. 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. I am so excited! I feel like a new person and I get compliments on how I look all of the time.
I get all of my meals prepared for me, planned for me, and best of all, they taste great. Nutrisystem has that all figured out for you.
Nutrisystem is giving me time back because everything is completely planned out. At 32 years old, I had surpassed pounds and went on a diet with Slimfast Shakes and low fat dinners that I made.
I was single at the time and had the time to prepare my own meals and exercise vigorously for about an hour 5 days a week. Needless to say, I did lose 40 lbs in 3 months, but it was hard work and I was always hungry. I'm now 40 years old now and after several failed starts I decided to give Nutrisystem a go. Being married with 2 children, my time is much more limited now.
Nutrisystem is perfect for this reason as I don't have to count calories — it's all done online for me. The meals are reasonably good and you can pretty much choose the meals you want. The first month I went with the default menu and selected the meals I liked best for the second and third month. I'm following the menu strictly and my caloric intake is around calories a day.
All in all, I have been on the diet for 42 days and I have lost 23 lbs and 3 inches off my waist! This program is well worth it! I have around 50 pounds to lose, so I figure two pounds a week is a pretty good rate. I really do like a lot of the food they deliver. The Chicken Pasta Parmesan is my favorite dinner meal so far. All of the soups are great, but I really love the Chicken Salad. I also think that the breakfast choices and dessert options are really helping me to stick to the diet.
I liked many aspects of the diet; however, I thought the food portions were too small. Maybe I'm too used to supersizing everything? The Nutrisystem plan does work though. When I was using the plan I lost about fifteen pounds. The plan was also very easy to follow. I did not have to weigh out food. I did not have to count calories. I did not have to figure out which foods to eat to lose weight.
I just had to follow the instructions that came with the plan and eat the food that the plan provided me with. When I joined the Nutrisystem plan I also received 24 hour access to the Nutrisystem web site where I could chat with someone for support daily if I needed to. Haven't used it, but its nice to know its there for me. The food was just as tasty as pre-cooked frozen meals you buy in the grocery store.
I enjoyed many of the foods that Nutrisystem offers. The desserts and snacks were delicious. The dinners are done very nicely with foods that are very tasteful and full of flavor.
The breakfasts were good I especially liked the pancakes. The lunches were also good. The thing I did not like about Nutrisystem was that the portions of foods they provided were too small. I just finished two weeks on Nutrisystem. Nutrisystem was my last resort! I figured if I spent the money for the food, maybe I would actually stick to the plan and lose some weight. Maybe I can get a sandwich at a restaurant next week! My pants even feel a little loose!
This eating plan is so easy that I barely think about it. I can see this becoming a normal way of eating for me. Hopefully Nutrisystem is the answer to my weight loss problems. Without the Nutrisystem plan I would still be overweight, unhealthy and unhappy. Without Nutrisystem I would still be eating unhealthy and gaining weight instead of losing weight.
I joined Nutrisystem two and a half months ago. When I first started the program it was an adjustment I had to get used to. I was used to overeating all of the time. With Nutrisystem the food portions are designed to be just right so a person gets the nutrition he needs and still loses weight. I had to get used to eating the right sized portion instead of overeating.
Once I adjusted to eating differently the plan started to really work. The plan is easy to follow and comes with instructions on how to do so. I am so happy with it that I am encouraging all of my friends to try it. After my three months of sticking to their regimen strictly, I have lost 21 pounds.
It is working so well. I love the way the food tastes. Pasta, chocolate, muffins, mashed potatoes! You name it, I can eat it! The choices are amazing. Every entrée tastes so different that I never get sick of eating the same thing. The Red Beans and Rice with Sausage is so good! The chocolate choices are outstanding as well. The peppermint cookie patty is to die for! I also love that I can still go out to eat and stay on the plan.
The Restaurant Guide keeps me on track for my weight loss goals without having to miss out of the social aspect of going out to eat with my friends.
Nutrisystem is my long-term solution for losing weight. The program is extremely easy to use. Any man can join the program and expect to lose weight easily. I joined the plan and Nutrisystem sent me dieting tools, instructions on how to use the plan and great tasting foods. I also have access to Nutrisystems website. The website includes chat rooms, blogs, and group discussions about dieting. The website is a great place for me to go to receive support.
I have not felt this energetic in awhile. I now have the energy to get through the day without feeling so tired. I even have enough energy to work out. I am a married man who needed to lose weight. My wife told me I should try Nutrisystem because I could lose weight while eating good tasting food. She also thought the plan sounded good because she would not have to cook special foods for me while I was dieting. I must say I am impressed with the Nutrisystem plan. Nutrisystem says they deliver a simple program with great tasting foods to help you lose weight.
Nutrisystem is not lying when they say this. Nutrisystems foods are delectable. I have never eaten healthy foods that tasted so good in all my life. There are foods like buffalo wing pretzels, pulled pork wraps, cinnamon buns, pancakes and many other great tasting foods. The foods are not drab and boring like with Medifast which I tried last year. The foods are flavorful and delightful. I feel great and I am beginning to look great. My wife is enjoying the smaller me and I am enjoying the attention.
Nutrisystem is a simple way to lose weight. Fingers crossed I can keep it off when I go off of Nutrisystem. I have struggled for so long to lose weight after having three kids. One of my greatest struggles is snacking with my kids. They love the cookies and the chips and the goldfish, and it is so easy for me to just grab handfuls of their snacks while I am sitting around talking to them.
All this snacking has been keeping me from losing weight. When they eat their cheese puffs, I can get my Nutrisystem Cheese Puffs out. When they eat a brownie, I can eat my Nutrisystem Fudge Brownie. When they get a candy bar, I can eat a Nutrisystem candy bar. It is so freeing! Losing weight has never been so much fun. So far, after six months on Nutrisystem, I have lost 20 pounds. I am so happy. I am now confident enough to add in exercise and I know that will increase the rate at which I am losing weight.
Hey, just wanted to let you know that I read all the reviews and decided to give Nutrisystem a chance. Turns out that its true The plan is extremely easy to follow and I have found it to be cheaper than buying food at the grocery store. I mainly shop at Whole Foods aka Whole Paycheck though. The plan comes with easy to understand instructions on how to lose weight.
It also comes with access to a very useful website, daily menu planner and diary that are helpful for losing weight and keeping it off. IMHO, the best part of Nutrisystem is the food. I have really enjoyed the plentiful food options available on the basic plan. Lots of variety and deserts. The breakfasts are my favorite part of the meal plan; they keep me going until lunch time.
The lunches are also very good. The dinners, snacks and desserts are also phenom. Great deal for the money! Yesterday I got up and ate blueberry pancakes, which tasted delicious. Later for lunch I ate creamy tomato soup which was also very tasty. For dinner I had a barbecue sauce with pork wrap. The barbecue sauce with pork wrap was very good; it was my favorite meal of the day.
I also ate some chocolate cake and some cheese puffs. I love this plan. Since I have been using Nutrisystem I have lost 8 pounds. I am losing weight easily.
I am feeling healthier every day. I am enjoying the foods I am eating, and I am enjoying the compliments I am receiving on my weight loss. I joined the Nutrisystem plan because I knew I was headed in the wrong direction with my body weight. I decided to start going to a gym. However, I did not know how to start eating right. I pick the food I want to eat from the menu that Nutrisystem provides. Nutrisystem also shows me how to plan what to eat for the day. The foods are really good.
I love some of them, like most of them and only disliked one or two items out of the whole menu. One of my favorite foods from Nutrisystem is their Mexican style tortilla soup, it's great. Nutrisystem is diet plan that allows a person to lose weight without having to think too much about it. I haven't tried any of the other plans, but I can tell you this, the basic plan is super easy to follow.
It comes with diet tools that are easy to use and awesome tasting foods albiet frozen. As they say in the support forum, it's all about taking it one day at a time and doing your best to stick with the meal plans and not deviate, which is hard to do if you have co-workers that want to eat out for lunch all the time. The plan has helped me look better and feel great about myself.
Losing weight has given me confidence that I had been lacking for awhile. I now feel confident at work and am ready for a career change. I have more confidence to ask women out on dates too. Well, at least online anyway. I owe my confidence to my weight loss and I owe my weight loss to Nutrisystem. If you're thinking about joining Nutrisystem, see if you can get your hands on one of their chocolate puddings.
It's hard to believe that something that tastes this good can help you lose wieght. My sisters and I are really close. There are four of us. All of us love to eat, we love to eat together, and we are all obese. For Christmas, we decided to invest in our bodies instead of on Christmas gifts for one another. Let me tell you, the results are stunning. In the first 28 days, all of us have lost at least five pounds. One of my sisters lost eight pounds, but that is because she started walking three days a week.
Since we are doing it together it is working really well. None of us have jumped the weight loss ship. The food tastes incredible, which is what I like most about it. I can see how Nutrisystem could really help me with portion control and teach me good eating habits for years to come. I have lost 20 pounds in three months and haven't been exercising at all. Just like their marketing says, the plan really does allow you to eat healthy while losing weight.
The foods are very easy to clean up when I am finished also. Just throw the microwave safe container in the trash. What more could you ask for? I take my frozen lunch with me to work and I can get more work done while losing weight! The plan is also very simple to follow, just follow their instructions.
Don't deviate by eating snickers bars, okay?! Stay away from those evil vending machines too! If you drink coffee, stop using creamer as I discovered I was drinking an extra calories a day in coffee creamer! The Nutrisystem plan is great for men who do not know how to cook and want to lose weight, feel healthier and eat healthier. Since starting the diet, I've lost 20 pounds and have started feeling good about my body again, which has helped my love life significantly. My girlfriend can't keep her hands off of my new slimmer waist ;- She is so proud of me and she thinks I look great.
Who would have thought I could eat healthy food that I do not have to prepare that I actually like? I have been using Nutrisystems plan for about two months now. I thought for sure when I started the plan that I would probably have at least one thing to complain about it; however, I was wrong. Nutrisystem truly is a great plan. Any problems that you may read about online are obvioulsy one off items and not a consistent trend.
The basic plan is extremely easy to follow.
