What's New with Nutrisystem for 2018?
You could blame it on medication if you want. I just started Nutrisystem. Have you ever considered creating an ebook or guest authoring about Nutrisystem on other sites? When I finally decided to sign on with Nutrisystem , my health was not in good shape. Thanks for your review and all your advice, Dr Johnathan. My only complaint is that their Customer Service and Weight Loss counselors are horrible — not rude but not at all helpful.

I have had gas also but that is ok. I am not hungry at all thanks to eating the 6 small meals and also that my stomach doesn't hold that much anyways. I do want to say that the food is actually very good at least all the ones I have had so far have been! I haven't weighed myself yet because I want to be surprised and weigh at the end of the week. This is really easy to follow. I haven't exercised at all but I plan on incorporating it into my schedule. Here is to a New Me in ! I am please with the plan so far.
I lost 8lbs My first week, but I think a lot was fluid from eating so much bad food before. The first days was the hardest but I like the fact that I don't have to cook it and weigh it and count calories and figure all that out. I do not want to have to do a meal plan, I do not have time for that. I can make my family a nice dinner and still have the veggies with them and I heat mine up and we can sit all down together without me having to figure out what can I make for them that I can eat.
I did the QVC deal and got the plan for less than what it would cost me to do smart ones or lean cuisine. This is delivered to my door and for an entire month. I don't even have to shop for it. You can not beat that. The food is not the greatest but what microwave meal is. It is not the worst I have had and I am so excited over this, I feel amazing and look forward to be a long time customer.
I have now lost 8. I love green beans.. I still have 13lbs I am wanting to lose Are you allowed Coffee on Nutrisystem? I use to drink decafe coffee. I did use truvia and skim milk when I used to drink it.. I do not drink any soda at all Just want to lose the lbs.. Thanks for the encouragement, anything that will help me stay on track.
Hey Faye, that was a big drop in weight those first 5 days. A possible answer is that much of that could have been excess water weight, because believe it or not when you start to drink lots of water the body actually releases excess stored water. It all depends on how much water weight you were carrying to begin with as it can vary a lot between people.
But in any case, don't feel discouraged. It's early days into diet and your body is just balancing itself out. The pounds will continue to fall more steadily as you continue with the plan.
Remember, most expert agree you should expect pounds lost per week on a low calorie diet like Nutrisystem and this is a reasonable average. Stay determined and positive and good luck with achieving your goals. I started the program and the first 5 days I lost 7. Hey Dolly, I'm so glad you're succeeding so amazingly well and have such a positive attitude toward the program.
Yes, I changed the ads since Nutrisystem have started their new promotion for already, so I had to include their new offers in my review so new visitors will get the latest information. Congrats and keep on keeping on! Hi Dr Cook, I read this review a month ago and signed up for the core womens plan. I can't thank you enough for pointing me at Nutrisystem! I have already lost 14 pounds and ordered my second month.
The food is much better than I expected from hearing some of the very negative commenters said about it. I felt a bit hungry the first few days, but I told myself it was my body telling me it was using up excess fat to make me smaller and lighter. And it really was! After those first few days, I had no hunger issues at all and felt great.
Better than great — I have so much energy now that I never had before. I really appreciate the depth of information you provide here and I noticed you changed the ads and some of the info from Fast 5 to Turbo 10 since I last looked in. That looks real interesting but you know I will stick with my plan because it works for me and that's all I need. Good luck and best wishes to all the others who are on this diet program! Hey Rebecca, it's always great to hear from folks that are doing this with a positive attitude and real determination to succeed like you guys.
All I can say is you're going the right way and just stick with the plan and you'll be wearing even smaller size pants before you know it! I am one week shy of a month on the program. My fiance and I are doing it together as we have gained weight together over the past two years. We are both in the lbs range.
She loves it and finds it easy to stick with. I have a harder time feeling full, but I am learning to work through that. It is nice to have the food all right there and quick. I can cook, and cook well, however we don't always have the time to cook well. If I got home tired we'd go out. If we hadn't been grocery shopping, we'd go out or grab a quick bag of chips. So having everything quick and easy is a great thing for both of us and makes it easier to behave.
The food it hit or miss, but it is generally not THAT bad. There have only been one or two items like the doughnut that were horrible. Most of the food is pretty good and some of it I absolutely love.
I can tell you that my size 26 pants are loose and my size 24's are starting to fit better. My fiance's pants are fitting her better as well. So far, we love it. We buy canned veggies on sale to add to the dinners. The cost is high, but compared to our previous eating out, we are still saving money. We will definitely continue, probably for 6 months to a year. We have a lot of weight to lose.
I hear many saying that this program is not teaching you how to eat right, but it IS. Portion control is one of my biggest problems. My body is learning the full triggers and eating 6 times a day helps my body process things. Gaining weight off program will happen if I do not keep the portions down and frequent. You cannot go back to eating three large meals a day.
Love the hunger feeling But I have only lost 2. I will give it a couple more days. If I don't lose any more. I will return all their food and want my money back. I hope they don't give me a hard time for that. My goal was to lose 15 lbs. This is my 4th time. It has come a long way from the 80s when you used to have to go to a weekly meeting and talk with a counselor and listen to speeches and pick your food out from racks in a warehouse like setting.
Each time I've done it, I lost successfully except the last year but that was my fault. I only did a 5 day plan and then went whole-hog on the weekends. I'm back on it and now sticking to it on most weekends, not all. It'll just take me more time to lose, but that's fine with me. I'd rather live and enjoy myself when I go out and not worry about dieting cause I know I'll get back to it when I can.
The food now is fantastic compared to what it used to be, especially the frozen. I don't find much of anything I don't like. And if I do, I just don't order it again. If you are a picky eater to start with, well then, yah, you'll have a hard time with it. So far all I lost was 5 pounds, but its so amazing how different I feel. I don't care what I look like. I care about how I feel! Bending over trying to put shoes on isn't a chore anymore with a fat belly in the way. Just want to say — this was the easiest, fastest way I ever tried to lose weight!
Just as the commercial says "eat the food, lose the weight! As you diet, you begin to relearn how to eat, so I did not even need the transition info. I still buy the shake because they are great mid-morning to squash hunger until lunch.
And the payoff is amazing! I have received so many compliments and queries about the program, and I can't say enough good about it!! I'm 58 years old and 5'2". I have never been one to lose weight very fast and as such, I usually get discouraged and get the ol "I don't care" attitude. Especially after losing quite a bit of weight and then struggling up and down with the same poundage for the past several years. But the convenience of NS has been a life changer for me as it gain me the extra something something I needed to stick it out.
I have currently lost The nice thing about NS, if you don't like a item, just don't order it the next month. My husband says this is the first time he has seen me stick to something for this long.
I've got about 30 pounds to go! It's so good to hear from someone that knows the truth and isn't afraid to write it down! I have to try and be diplomatic when answering some of the worst complainers since this is my site. But it can be frustrating at times when you get people that really just don't get it that they're the ones with the problem, not the diet. Congrats on going into this with the right attitude and proving to the naysayers that it works It's always good to hear! My mom did the Nutrisystem diet back in the late 80s, after giving birth to me a few years prior, and lost all of her baby weight.
She did it for 3 months. She told me that the first month was "okay" but that by the end of her 2nd month, she had lost almost all of her baby weight but also had so much more energy, which gave her the motivation to start running again. I wish I could post a screen cap of her text saying this so people would know it's real lol.
By the end of her 3rd month, she said she had lost ALL of her baby weight plus a few more pounds. She recommended it to me when I started talking about wanting to lose some weight, so we both decided to do it.
She's been on it for a month and has lost 8 lbs. I've been on it for 3 weeks I started a week later so my bf and I could start together— I convinced him after I had already ordered with her , and I've lost 6 lbs. I am 28 years old, 5'4" and was lbs when I started. This may not sound big at ALL to a lot of you, but trust me, if I wore a tight shirt and let's be honest, I'm 28 so I want to I have a VERY short upper torso so adding just a few tiny extra pounds shows up fast on me.
But I don't see any problem with wanting to look better as long as I'm doing it in a healthy manner I've been exercising and eating all the meals the way they tell you to, and I now weigh ish and feel awesome in both my work clothes and going-out clothes.
An inch off my waist and a few less pounds is all I really needed and that's exactly what I got. I don't need to lose too much more weight so if the weight loss starts declining a little bit, for ME, that's actually a good thing. Obviously, for some others, I can see why they might get frustrated. This diet isn't for everyone, but that's no reason to rag on it. They'd say things like "UGH It doesn't actually affect our ability to judge it as a whole.
I can clearly see that this is exactly what's happening with the food from nutrisystem. They might as well all be the same person writing a different review. Just listen to how they talk. Yes, the food from nutrisystem is more bland than a steak dinner from Outback oh dear GOD, i bet some of you are already thinking about how "terrible" Outback is instead of understanding my point And to those of you who say "No i'm not expecting gourmet, but I wouldn't even feed this to my dog" I know what point you're trying to make, but these foods are not THAT bad to where a dang dog who eats his own throw up wouldn't eat it.
Not even close, you overly picky eater. And nonetheless, there are starving people out there who would take a frozen salisbury steak without complaining. A point that should be more than taken into consideration! I was eating Chick-Fil-A sandwiches and french fries before this diet, so yeah I felt the change in taste!
But if I cared more about the taste of food than losing the weight which thousands and thousands of people have said they've lost the weight , then I'd still be unhappy with my weight! It's not SO bad to where I can't endure it for a better cause, which is looking and feeling better. I will stay on nutrisystem for my 2nd month and see what happens after that. So sorry for this being so long but I had to say something because reading all the comments from complainers was the most aggravating thing I've seen in months.
Hi June, congrats on your success! And getting into the right frame of mind comes from re-learning how to eat the right way so the body doesn't gain weight. Once the mind has learned the right way to eat, the body does what it's told! I've been using the Nutrisystem diet plan since January of I've lost 48 pounds.
I started at about pounds and I was a size 16 and today I'm about pounds and a size The plan works but the issue is that some people don't understand it's not just about the food. It's about portion control and changing your lifestyle to eat more but smaller meals. I've done without their food for quite some time, although I will say that not starting with it wouldn't have worked.
It's just that I prefer to cook my own chicken or fish and I'm cooking for two very hungry men. I needed the food for a while to train myself as I lost my first 15 pounds. The portions get so much easier after the first few weeks and I found myself feeling uncomfortable if I cheated because my body was getting used to healthy eating.
I'm in my 50s and this is the first time I have ever found something that worked for me. But all the focus here is on the food and I didn't think that was the biggest challenge. Thanks so much for the prompt reply! It's sometimes difficult to weed out the legit complaints so thanks for helping clear that up!
I agree completely that it's going to take a couple of months anyway to retrain your habits and see some results! I am so excited at the hopes of this working! I have enjoyed everything I've tried so far! I can't wait to continue! Thanks again so much for your time! Hey Kathi, The complaints about auto shipping revolve mostly around people who signed up for the first month and got the discount, then tried to cancel before the second shipment and got a nasty shock because they didn't read the information on the Nutrisystem homepage about their obligation.
If you intend signing up for more than one month, then you will have no problems canceling anytime after you have received at least 2 monthly shipments from the company. There is a pretty obvious reason Nutrisystem are strict about early cancellation. They're giving a pretty big discount to attract customers to signup for auto-delivery because that way they sell at least a second month of food, which is better for business than just selling a single month's shipment. Most customers take the time to read the disclaimer and are aware of the obligation.
So they either wave the discount and pay full price for the first month then can cancel anytime without penalty or they commit to at least two months and take the discount. When you think about it it's sensible to do that because it usually takes at least two months to see real results from a diet and to train your body to get used to eating less food. Hope that answers your question. I know this post is rather old but I wondered if I might explore the complaint about NS Customer Service and cancelling autoship.
Like many, I'm using NS to learn about portion control, moderation and healthy choices. I've purchased several starter boxes at Walmart but I'd like to "join" for a few months to further my jump start and until I feel I'm ready to go it alone.
I hesitate only because of what I've read about the autoship. I don't mind paying their prices at all, but when I'm ready to stop; I don't think anyone has the right to interfere with that decision.
Has anyone heard anything more recently on this subject? Thanks so much for this post Customer service was no help, trying to convince me to take another delivery, are you kidding me! I've had hormone tests and blood work done and nothing seems amiss so at this point it's a mystery — so now we're into a heatwave and nothing I own fits me anymore.
I am glad that so many women can find success with NS; unfortunately I have to keep searching for mine. I just started the 5 day trial.. I did purchase the D plan for diabetic because this is what was available at Walmart at the time. The prepared foods makes it so much earier and as much as I have read horrible stories on the taste, I have to disagree.
Sure the muffin isn't fluffy and the foods are processed but they take the challenge out of calorie counting and preparing. I so far actually have not had anything I would call awful. It's pretty darn good.
Portions may be small but you eat all day on this plan. Also, keep in mind your great food and large portions is why you are now purchasing this product. Going into my 3rd day I recommend this product and will be purchasing more. I also kicked my exercise routine into gear. The diet was easy and taught me how to budget my eating and to discipline myself so that I went on to lose another 10 lbs the next month without NS just by keeping my good habits and exercise. I stayed at my target weight for 8 months, but then I fell in love probably 'cause I looked so good: I've recommended it to friends and family and enjoyed watching their success.
Hey Lidia, I'm sorry it didn't work out for you. But its certainly not "a bunch of crap" as the thousands that managed to get on with just fine will testify to.
Oh boy, where do I start? It's a "D-I-E-T" so the portions are small. What else did you expect? My review clearly states you have the option of adding grocery items to the meals, but really it's not absolutely necessary.
To lose weight, you must get into the trend of eating LESS! You simply cannot continue eating all you want and expect to become slim. That's not how it works! You are wrong about shipping. It is free when you pay full price for the plan, but if you take the discount then it is deducted from any refund if you cancel before taking delivery of at least two months worth of food. That is also clearly stated.
Customer service is great. I'm sorry if you had a bad experience, but did the the counselor "yell" or "pretty much yell"? There's a big difference. I'm guessing you're just venting your frustration here, so making it sound a whole load worse than it really was is normal for folks who didn't get what they wanted or expected.
I published your complaint in the spirit of fairness as everyone's entitled to their opinion. I had high hopes for this program and it's a bunch of crap. Meaning, in order to not stay hungry all day, you will have to add more foods other then veggies and fruits. They actually say you need 3 power fuels, 2 smart carbs, 4 servings of veggies and so on to feel full. Means you buying a ton of groceries on the side! In addition to low fat or fat free milk for cereal and everything has to be wheat, low fat or fat free, and if family doesn't eat that It adds up fast!
It's included in the cost which means you won't get it back if you return the food. I talked to a counselor before I quit and he pretty much yelled at me and said to add even MORE food to my diet!! I'm trying to lose weight not eat more! Then when I cancelled, the first rep was insanely rude and hung up on me, refused to tell me how to ship my food back to ensure a proper refund, and then hung up in my face.
It's a complicated diet and I don't need the rudeness or my bank acct drained. You said you your problem was "not eating enough" which might have most of the folks reading this thinking you were underweight to start with—and by eating more you'd naturally gain and not lose weight.
Maybe you could clear that part up so we can understand your personal situation better. Hey Suelesh I removed your email to preserve your privacy , A lot of the process for losing weight is mental as it is physical and those foods are a big problem for diabetics, but many still crave them.
To answer your question, according to Nutrisystem: These nutrients help your body digest glucose slowly, and this prevents spikes in blood sugar while keeping you satisfied. Both my husband and I did Nutrisystem for 2 months. I wanted to lose weight and he did it in solidarity — He lost 15 pounds and I can no longer fit into my jeans. Really, I am wider and a few pounds heavier than I was only 2 months ago. Perhaps it's because my issue was not eating junk or over eating; Mine was not eating enough and I thought by spending the money on the food I would be more inclined to eat properly in regular intervals.
I had, like all of us, seen those commercials where overweight women looked so amazing after doing Nutrisystem so you can imagine my dismay when my own body took a turn for the worse after trying it. I also stepped up my activity and had no problem with the food itself in terms of taste. We live within walking distance of an organic produce store so we had lots of fresh stuff to dress the food up with.
Good luck to those who give it a shot — it did not work for me, but that certainly doesn't mean it won't for you. I just started on nutrisystem d,its not that bad,but I cant understand why they have cake, cookies and candy bars in it, can anyone tell me why? Hi Camilla, I'm so glad you're doing well on the diet and the gas problem was short-lived for you. The way to real success with this program comes after you complete it and return to normal meals: You need to keep eating healthily and in small portions and never return to eating junk food or you'll just put all the weight back that you lost.
You can do it, I'm sure! Hi, I'm on day 10 started with fast5 and lost 6 so far, so real pleased. I got gas on day 2 it lasted 2 days then vanished and hasnt come back.
I admit I was thinking on quitting if it hadnt of stopped when it did. I wasn't like the other commenter Cindy having home cooked food before. I ate a load of junk always Mcdonalds or pizza or takeout so my diet wasnt ever good. The food on Nutrisystem is pretty good so I was a bit shocked at the gas but now its gone, I'm real happy with the diet so far. I love the shakes! Hey Cindy, good to hear you and your husband are doing great with the weight coming off, but not so good to hear you have the gas problem that some folks get.
Is your husband getting the same problem? I hear of it happening when folks try Nutrisystem instead of eating healthy home cooked meals, so its likely down to the big adjustment the body needs to make with a very different menu it's not used to.
You're accustomed to healthy meals that I assume you cook with all fresh ingredients and now your eating processed foods—it's a big change in diet that can be problematic for some folks. If the problem persists I'd recommend you talk to customer support and even your doctor if the pain is bad.
I am on my 4th day of the fast 5. I have lost 2 lbs so far, my husband 7lbs. I understand that our metabolisms are different. Before NS I cooked very healthy, clean meals but portion size and eating too few meals a day left us both about 20 lbs over what we wanted to be. We both work out regularly so we felt that learning to eat tegular small meals would be worth a try. Now for my problem. I have been bloated and have horrible gas and sm extremely uncomfortable every hour if the day since starting NS.
Anyone have advice for me? I saw a response that said that the person was obviously not used to healthy food. Well that is absolutely not the case with me. I don't want to give up, but this is bad and even affects my sleep as I wake up in the early morning hours with heartburn.
Thanks in advance for any thoughts or ideas you may have for me. Hey Tara, sorry it didn't work out for you. Actually, 5lbs in 3 weeks is pretty good considering experts agree the safe and preferred rate of weight loss is lbs per week. You were well within that, but I guess you were expecting more.
We all have different metabolisms and so lose weight at different rates so don't feel bad. If you bought the first month at a discount rate with auto-delivery, there is a charge for early cancellation which I point out in my review and its clearly explained in the terms on the Nutrisystem website home page.
It's not the fault of customer service which is generally pretty good. I did not lose much weight on Nutrisystem- Only 5 lbs in 3 weeks. I will never go back to them no matter how desperate I get. Hey Vicki, sorry to hear you failed and gave up on the diet so soon.
Two weeks is never enough to know when a diet is working or not but if you felt it wasn't for you, then its better to stop before the second month gets shipped. Thanks for making people aware of this. I want to add for other people reading this that everyone will lose weight at their own pace and some will lose it faster than others. If you're not overweight and try to diet to lose some, you probably should not expect to lose much.
It's because your body will try to keep itself stabilized as best it can by taking whatever calories you're putting into it and storing them as fat. It does that so it can cope with a potential long haul of calorie restriction. In this circumstance, you need to exercise as well. While every circumstance is different, in general I do not recommend trying to lose weight when you do not need to.
If you're out of shape and want your body to look better, the best advice is to get physical and tone up through exercise if the scales are telling you that you're at your correct weight. This will force your body to release those calories before it can store them up, while strengthening your muscles and sculpting your body to appear slimmer. I ordered a week early due to my hectic schedule, and told the representative that I was not going to start for a week.
The first week fast 5 I lost 1 pound. I called and was told that the amount of weight to lose is really a percentage, and because I was not overweight, that was good. After the first week of food, I was told I should eat more, etc. Do not listen to their excuses or they will make you pay for another month of food, even if you told them it was not working within the 14 days!
Hey Annette, amazing story and one that is so motivational it made me feel like I should get down to the gym and do some working out! Congrats on getting back to where you wanted to be. I used to be really fit running every day 10 miles or more and working out at the gym. You could say I was a fitness nut cause I never seemed to slow down. That was until I had the accident and broke both legs. Had me laid up in bed for 3 months and then another 3 months at home trying to get my mobility back.
Problem was, during all that time my motivation went to nothing and I started comfort eating instead. 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. I ate and ate but sat around all day feeling sorry for myself. In 6 months I went from a healthy size 8 to a 14, gained 30 pounds and felt horrible.
My family were supportive and tried to talk me into getting my old self back. I sort of wanted to but if it had been just me, I wouldn't of bothered, but thanks to sis I agreed. The food arrived and I hated it at first. Packets of dried stuff and meals that had to be microwaved and added a load of veggies to in order to make them edible. But I think taking that first step sort of got me going again.
The old determination I used to have when I was training kicked in and I made up my mind I was not going to quit. After the first couple days, I got into the food and actually it tasted better than it looked.
After the first week I was blown away when I weighed in 6 pounds lighter! It was working better on me than my sister who only lost 3 pounds that first week. But we both kept going and by the end of the month, my sis had lost her 10 pounds and I was 16 pounds in the right direction.
I ordered a second month and when that was done, I'd lost another 12 pounds and almost back to where I started. During that month, I started training again slowly to get my strength back and by the end of it, I was running 5 miles a day and back in the gym, just doing less as I building up carefully cause I didn't want to damage my legs. Sorry this is a bit long but I wanted to tell my story for anyone who wants to read it. I hear some complainers making excuses why they can't do it when I know all it takes is determination and maybe a little nudge from someone close to you.
Girls and guys, you can do this. The food isn't so bad as some are making it sound and the structure and support is very good if you have a mind to follow the plan and don't quit before you get to where your aiming at! I was really undecided over trying nutrisystem for myself. I read so many conflicting reports—some say its great—others complain the food tastes terrible—others bitch about hassle getting their money back when they can't hack it.
I showed your review to a friend who did OK om the diet two years ago and he said its right on the button. Good enough for me. So I went for it. Just finished my first two weeks and I'm really surprised in a good way. The food tastes just fine—so much for the complainers! I lost 7lbs already and I'm feeling really great.
You did a great review. I have been messing with nutrisystem for over three years.. Unfortunately I work at two jobs that both have unlimited free food, and i have stopped exercising.. I have blown up to about 70 pounds heavier than my nutrisystem lightest weight of …. I feel like I am going in the right direction and tomorrow I start with the hour of cardio again…great job on your weight loss so far but if you lost 5. Nutrisystem works and it works fast, and once you get going and see results..
Does anyone know which foods to eat in the first 7 days that comein the turbo take off box i got them mixed up please help. Go online to You Tube.
I received my first delivery of NutraSystem this week. My biggest problem will be the water. Thanks in advance for your support! Your email address will not be published. Notify me of follow-up comments by email. Notify me of new posts by email.
Comments Great job this week! What day Is it best to start the turbo on. Whatever day you are ready to make the commitment to lose weight. 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
