Nutrisystem Diet Review
Emails were only to sell more. Hope it goes well! Nutrisystem Turbo 13 Review. 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. She was very informative as she helped me make my first purchase. Nutrisystem aims to simplify weight loss. At that time I received an email from my PayPal account, advising me that I just made a payment to Nutrisystem.
I just love Nutrisystem! Follow their simple plan and you will lose weight. I lost 6 pounds in week 1. Remember to do your part This plan works if you work it. I am only on day one and wondering if I'll be able to continue on this plan. I don't consider muffins and bars valid substitutions for a meal not to mention the taste of the aforementioned items. Marie, please check out the taste of this food. I have been on NS for 11 months and have lost 41 lbs.
Yes, that is slow, but it is working for me and my son just recently joined this month. Love most of food, especially the breakfast waffles. Very bad, read small print everywhere on each page of very confusing terms and conditions, continue to be charged even though i stopped my order.
Honestly the food is ok but I already lost 10 pounds in two weeks. There is just something great about the convenience and calorie control.
I def recommend trying it. I'm having a hard time with the taste of the food but I'm going to move forward and do the best I can. I was really excited to try this out after I ordered it.
The food that I ordered actually liked. Also, they did not tell me what to eat. The first week was really difficult for me because of the portions but I though, this is what I'm supposed to eat. The taste of the food tasted okay. What really got to me is when one of my coworkers informed me that you could but their products in Walmart and Dollar Tree. That really up-set me.
I wasted so much money and you could have bought this for cheaper. Additionally, after the first week all my food started tasting the same. Even if I had a meal that consisted of just cheese, it all tasted like tomato. I made a mistake when I first received the box of food and did not look at my order list. I discovered that I ordered different things and they substituted most of those foods. I have lost two pounds in one week. I still have a 3 more weeks to go and I'm dreading it.
I'm sticking to it only because I wasted so much money. I would not recommend this product to anyone. I would rather buy Jenny Craig!! I am 5 days in and haven't lost an ounce. Am following program to the letter The 1st month it was great. I lost 11 lbs.
Still walking , steps per day and eating Nutrisystem. Not pleased so far this month. Not working, Good luck. I have reached my weight loss goals! I tried the program and stayed with it for two months.
I did lose weight, but I found the meals for the most part were not tasty and I was always hungry. I would not do this program again. The food is really bad. I found very few of the items to be edible. For the cost you could easily do your own food. Which is what I didn't want to do. I only lost 3 lbs in 2 weeks following the plan. I felt the return program was deceptive.
Selections were great but out of 3 orders each had shipping issues of damaged product which they were quick to make right. The final straw was items found to have mold in some of the items. Lost weight up to that point. Nutrisystem is one of the most recognizable names in weight loss and has rightly earned its place among the top diets. Founded in , Nutrisystem has helped millions of people lose weight on its convenient portion-controlled meals.
This program takes the guesswork out of dieting and many people find it to be an easy approach to healthy weight loss. The brand is one of the first diets to earn its marks by offering a hassle-free way to lose weight with its meal delivery service. The diet plan takes care of the majority of grocery shopping, cooking and portioning by delivering meals and snacks that are calorie-controlled and pre-prepared. All you have to do is heat and enjoy, supplementing with a few fresh grocery store items.
Nutrisystem originally offered only pantry-ready foods, but in added a frozen line of meals; combined the two lines offer more than menu options. All new Nutrisystem customers will be enrolled in this personalized program, which calculates a person's metabolic rate by taking into account a variety of factors including age, sex, weight, and level of physical activity. Prior to this program, the diet had two levels—one for men and one for women.
These results were confirmed in a clinical study. In January , Nutrisystem launched Turbo10, a clinically tested program that promises up to a pound weight loss and an overall reduction of five inches from the waist, hips, thighs, chest, and arms in just the first month. In a clinical study sponsored by Nutrisystem, those who followed Turbo10 lost 3x more weight, 3x more total body inches and 3x more body fat in the first month compared to those who followed a do-it-yourself weight loss plan.
In addition to weight loss, those on Turbo 10 also significantly reduced their systolic blood pressure after the first month. The Nutrisystem diet is personalized to meet individual health goals and consistent with national guidelines for dietary intake meeting targets for fat, sodium, sugar, cholesterol and fiber as well as national guidelines for physical activity. All the foods are portion controlled and rely on a balanced approach by offering low glycemic index eating, to control blood sugar, that is high in protein and fiber, for satiety.
There are a range of plans at varying price points that are tailored to suit different nutritional needs, with those specifically for men, women, teens, people with diabetes and vegetarians.
Plans and meals are selected and ordered from Nutrisystem's website or by phone. You'll receive 28 days worth of food that comes in pantry-ready and or frozen containers that you simply heat before eating. Some grocery purchases will need to be made for items like fresh fruits and vegetables, nuts, whole grain bread, fish, and more.
When you sign up with Nutrisystem, you'll also receive access to a Mindset Makeover behavioral guide, a week online plan to help you better understand your relationship with food. It provides steps for taking control of your eating habits. Nutrisystem customers also have online access to health information, community support, weekly newsletters, smart phone applications, and tracking tools. Additionally, you receive complimentary, optional counseling from trained weight-loss coaches, registered dietitians and certified diabetes educators.

I've been on NS, the diabetic program, for 3 months. I've lost 35 pounds and my blood sugar has come WAY down from mid 's to low 's.
And I don't find the food unpalatable at all. You can customize your order, so anything I don't like I just don't order again, and anything I like I order more off on the next shipment. Customer service has been excellent, and there is a huge member support that is extremely helpful. Plus, I AM learning how to eat properly to keep the weight off when I reach goal. It is easy to follow as well, but the food is horrible!!!
There are only a few things that are tolerable, and even if you customize your order you will get extremely tired of eating those same things over and over. They have a plan where you get these other foods added that are frozen. You can see my nutrisystem diet plan review and how it helped me.
Through this diet I lost 10 pounds with drastic reduction on the fat around my waist, hips, chest and flabby arms. They provides a comprehensive daily meal plan which reduces calorie intake through controlled portion-controlled plans. I came across different plans for men and women. Each is geared at weight loss, daily calorie allowances are clearly outlined in a simple and convenient language. Emphasis is placed on the unique dietary needs of individuals and based on that I was able to pick the one that nest suited me.
Here are some of the dietary plans. For the 4 week plan Women are restricted to 4 meals a day including breakfast, lunch, dinner and a snack. Men on the other hand are limited to breakfast, lunch, dinner and two snacks during the day. Additionally you are able to enjoy fresh groceries each day as well as one lunch and dinner per week.

This popular assortment of foods encompasses all meal occasions; breakfast, lunch and dinner. Below is the day Favorites pack includes the following food assortment. Turbo 10 is a primarily clinically tested program which was launched in early January This program delivers up to 10 pound weight loss in the first month. The Turbo10 works like a catalyst helping the body lose fat faster. Through a clinical test endorsed by the company, weight loss with Turb10 was compared the do it yourself program, with results showing the Turbo10 exhibited superior results.
Turbo10 works three times faster than the DIY program in reducing body weight, body fat as well as loss of total. Through the Turboshakes component, they provides a line of 7 shakes and priobitics. Turbo10 plan includes 21 scrumptious meals and 7 turboshakes which I found quite helpful when hunger pangs hit. The Turboshakes enhance the digestive system and immune system while reducing the midsection belly bloat.
One of the priobotics, GanedenBc a protein helps the body adjust to the new meal structuring. Turbo10 not only works with weight loss issues but reduces systolic blood pressure after the first month. The Turbo10 takeoff plan is comprise of the three basic meals; breakfast, lunch and supper with two shakes daily during the first seven days of the program.
In my first week of my Basic Plan, I was started off with the Turbo10 which is given to every new customer except those in the Diabetes Plan. I have tried many diet plans in the past, I have had a taste of the good, bad and utterly disgusting. From drinking raw kale juice, to blended herb concoctions, I have gone through a lot of diets that have left my tummy sore, rushing to the bathroom after every few hours. Nutrisystem not only deviates from unpleasant menus but provides over popular food items.
Some examples of these popular foods include; cookies, chocolates, lasagna, muffins, cereals and cheese, quite yummy selection for a diet plan! The meals are carefully planned through various meal plans to ensure weight loss and overall help goals are attained.
They provides nutrient-rich foods, establishing the right combination of calories, carbs, proteins and vegetables that help keep my strength up while keeping my focus on what is important is my life.
The meal plans space out the meals, discouraging binge eating and hunger periods that might lead to deviation of the diet. Smaller frequent meals help curb the cravings, provide fuel for the body and shed more weight.
The auto delivery program is an optional feature in each of the diet plans. Thanks in advance …. Hi Tami — Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to comment! I always add extra veggies to my greens and have found the only thing you really need to watch out for is the salad dressing.
But for me, cucumbers, tomatoes, etc. I usually have my TurboShake midday — around 2: That said, I would definitely suggest using the Nutrisystem counseling service for full clarification, though — especially for questions 2 and 3. Best of luck if you decide to try the full program! I wanted to say that this article is nicely written and included almost all the vital info I needed.
Thanks for the review. I second your recommendation for Nutrisystem. Their service helped me significantly a few years ago. Hoping for the same results! Hi Maria — thanks for commenting! Hope it goes well again if you decide to give it another try. Have you found that Nutrisystem is a good way for keeping the weight off over the long term? How long do you really have to be on Nutrisystem before you starting seeing results? Just finished month 1 and lost about 9 pounds! This post could not be written any better!
Reading this post reminds me of my good old room mate! He was always trying new weight loss products. I will forward this page to him. Fairly certain he will have a good read. Thank you for sharing! I just read this well written post. I have a handicapped daughter who has gained so much weight. We have tried everything with very little success. After taking to her doctors we decided to give NS a try.
She started the program on February 16, She is loving the food and the program. She has already dropped three pounds. Her beginning weight was So she has a long way to go. But the support and your post will definitely help her obtain her goals for healthier lifestyle. We will keep you informed on her progress. Thank you so much.
Hi Shirley — What an inspirational story — really hoping she has success! Thanks for keeping us posted, and wishing your daughter all the best. I suppose its ok to use some of your ideas!! I have been on Nutrisystem for about 5 weeks now. I lost 15 pounds the first month and have been following it to a T. The food tastes fine and it is very easy to just grab something pop it in the microwave if necessary and go.
I have been using My Fitness Pal to track my food and am eating about calories a day. The first week was really tough and I had a hard time, but I stuck to it. Now I m satisfied and use to it.
Planning on finishing up the second month and then on the 3rd month working in more home cooked meals and tracking to stay at the same calorie level. Then will switch over to the auto ship of Turbo shakes for my 4th month. I have about 40 pounds to lose and feel like I am making some good headway with the Nutrisystem plan.
Good job on the review, very well written. Wow, nice job Carolyn! Thanks for sharing your story, and best of luck with the rest of your diet. I was very happy to find this website. Just wanted to thank for your time for this wonderful read, and inspirational review!! Hi Kelly — sorry to hear that! Have you tried connecting with the Nutrisystem counseling service? We had to take Nutrisystem program for 8 weeks because we got it at a discount thru our insurance company.
My goal was to loose 30 lbs. At the end of the 8 weeks I had lost only 3 lbs. We did not care for the cardboard like food and did not get anywhere close to our goals. This program obviously works for lots of folks, but not for us. We did go to the Naturally Slim program and in 8 weeks I lost Naturally Slim is based on not what you eat but when and how you eat and you eat your own real food and got real results. We will stay with our new habits learned with Naturally Slim and will not have any good words from our Nutrisystem experience.
Hi John — thanks for sharing your experience. Thanks so much for sharing your story. It was encouraging and helpful. I am only on my second day of Lean 13 and after comparing the Turbo Shakes with the protein powder I was using before, I noticed that mine was lower in calories, fat, sugar, and carbs and higher in protein by quite a lot. Thanks again for your review! Hi Peggy — I think you should be fine using your own protein shake.
Just to be safe you may want to talk to a Nutrisystem counselor, and they can let you know for sure. The biggest issue would probably be the calorie count of your shake vs. Best of luck with your two weeks. I made some raspberry coffee and chilled it. Thought that might be a nice tip for someone else. Just finished day 1 of the Turbo Takeoff… I was down 2 lbs this morning!!! Yay… only 58 more lbs to go!!!
I am so determined and my mind is in the right place to really do this, this time.. I am very excited for the results.. I know i will be on the program for a few months but, I really feel like I need the structure of this program right now.
I have been feeling a lot of emotions from having gone through breast cancer and several surgeries the last 3 years… I just kinda let myself go… but, I am so ready for this change!!!
Thanks for sharing, Lynn! Best of luck with reaching your goals! Very thorough review…thanks for making the decision easier! I just signed up for my first order.
Went with the Core, and really hoping to least a good 20 pounds. Just finished month 1. Does this stuff really work? Thanks for the comment, Heather…It definitely works when you follow the program correctly. Best of luck if you decide to try it! First, take the time to put the food on a plate like you would normally eat. Focus on the journey.
Take the time to praise yourself for the positive change. I started on Nutrisystem exactly 2 months ago with a week lapse. I only wish I had started months before. Question first great info as I really need something kind of no Brainerd and ready.
How long in your experience would you say orders take to turn around? I am currently out of town but want to have the product arrive day if or day after returning so I can hit the ground running. Thanks ahead for any info. Hi Deb — Thanks for visiting. If I remember correctly, the last time I ordered it only took 3 or 4 days to get my shipment. Thanks for the review! This was helpful in determining which program to start!
I also appreciate your thoroughness and videos. I hope to get fit during my weight loss journey and obtain my goal by next year. Hi Rose — Glad you liked it, and best of luck with your weight loss journey! Is it possible to melt away one to two pounds of stubborn body fat every single day?
It sounds insane, but according to the scientific proof — and the thousands who have already done it themselves using this secret — the answer is YES. I have tried every diet on the market. This was my last resort.
In fact, I have to remind myself to get everything in. My doctor is on the program, her husband and son! Notify me of new posts by email. Leave this field empty. How I Lost 30 Pounds 1. Trust the Process, Nutrisystem Works. A Journey to Better Health 1.
