About This Item
Ajzlab, March 8, Thanks for the kind words and for visiting the site — let me know your Twitter handle so I can return the favor! Your body has been burning carbs for all these years, so it can take time for it to get used to burning fat instead. This has been shown to boost metabolism by 80 to calories per day 6 , 7 , 8. Thanks for the input Saul. Great choice of colors!
Convenient meal tracker and unlimited counseling support included. About This Item Merchandise. Definitely Worth the Buy. And the boxed kits I bought from the store have my favorite meals, so no food is wasted some of the not-so-great meals I got via the official program are still sitting in my pantry, uneaten. I still use Nutrisystem's "Numi" app, I'm still following the program, and I'm still losing weight.
I would definitely recommend purchasing the food this way, unless you really need the extra hand-holding that Nutrisystems provides call-in and chat support, etc. I didn't like the fact that every dinner had red sauce because it is not preferably what I like.
But, other than that the food is delicious and very convienent for on-the-go meals. Allows you to realize what correct portion sizes should be.
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.

Thanks for the effort! Thanks Harland, appreciate you spreading the word and glad you found the information useful. Thanks for the post. You bet, thanks Jack! Thanks for visiting, Carlos. Hope the info helped! If you don't have iron willpower, then hunger will cause you to give up on these plans quickly. When you do that, your hunger levels go down and you end up eating much fewer calories 1.
Another benefit of cutting carbs is that it lowers insulin levels , causing your kidneys to shed excess sodium and water out of your body. This reduces bloat and unnecessary water weight 2 , 3. It is not uncommon to lose up to 10 pounds sometimes more in the first week of eating this way, both body fat and water weight. This is a graph from a study comparing low-carb and low-fat diets in overweight or obese women 4. The low-carb group is eating until fullness, while the low-fat group is calorie-restricted and hungry.
Cut the carbs and you will start to eat fewer calories automatically and without hunger 5. Put simply, cutting carbs puts fat loss on autopilot. Constructing your meals in this way will automatically bring your carb intake into the recommended range of 20—50 grams per day.
The importance of eating plenty of protein cannot be overstated. This has been shown to boost metabolism by 80 to calories per day 6 , 7 , 8. When it comes to losing weight, protein is the king of nutrients.
You can eat massive amounts of them without going over 20—50 net carbs per day. A diet based mostly on meat and vegetables contains all the fiber, vitamins and minerals you need to be healthy.
It will make you feel miserable and abandon the plan. To see how you can assemble your meals, check out this low-carb meal plan and this list of healthy low-carb recipes. By lifting weights, you will burn lots of calories and prevent your metabolism from slowing down, which is a common side effect of losing weight 11 , Studies on low-carb diets show that you can even gain a bit of muscle while losing significant amounts of body fat If lifting weights is not an option for you, then doing some cardio workouts like walking, jogging, running, cycling or swimming will suffice.
It is important to stick to healthy carb sources like oats, rice, quinoa, potatoes, sweet potatoes, fruit, etc.
