There's no face-to-face support, but you get support through online message boards and a mentor program that connects newbies with an experienced member. I bought this thru Amazon, sold by Charity Books. The TV ads, filled with celebrity endorsers and regular people holding out their enormous "old jeans" make the diet plans sound terribly tempting.

Enter, the Turbo Jumpstart Box. First off, delivery was super quick and everything comes in the box pictured. I didn't experience any missing items. You will need to supplement Lunch and Dinner with either 2 cups of raw veggies or 1 cup of cooked veggies! I happen to be a big fan of zucchini, cauliflower, broccoli and squash so this isn't a problem for me but, it is something to keep in mind.
Breakfast was the maple oatmeal which was a little sweet and supposed to be cooked with fat free milk. I didn't have that so, it was cooked with water. It might be less sweet with milk? For lunch, I had the tuna salad over chopped romaine with cucumbers. It was really tasty and I loved the water chestnuts in the package.
I was really hungry by 3PM, but I remembered to make the Turboshake and was ok. Dinner was the meat ravioli with zucchini. I really was not a fan, but I didn't feel hungry after so that was good. Breakfast was the biscotti bites, which I felt like were nice as a snack but maybe would not be satisfying for everyone.
They were sweet and crunchy, but I could tell they had packed some protein powder in them. I was really under calories yesterday, so I had a soft boiled egg a little after. Lunch was the loaded mashed potatoes, that I mixed in a cup of steamed broccoli.
I used to eat instant mashed potatoes as a very poor college student during cram sessions; these are worse. My favorite part was the broccoli. The whole thing had a very odd powdered cheese taste and the 'bacon bits' were super hard.
I'm glad I got that one out of the way. Dinner was the Hearty Beef Stew. It took a little longer than the 90 seconds-ish to heat up but ended up not being too bad for canned soup. Breakfast was the Cinnamon Raisin Baked Bar.
Very strong protein bar taste. Not too sweet though. Lunch was broccoli cheese rice. Honestly, I was looking forward to this and I think I just can't get over the powdered cheese that keeps popping up. I ended up mixing in my broccoli and squash to help the taste. I was super hungry at that point so it did not feel like enough. Dinner was the pasta fagioli, which I honestly thought was really good! I added a dash of garlic powder, but really enjoyed it overall.
I had the rest of my steamed broccoli and squash from lunch with it. Breakfast is the Apple Strudel Bar-this is the best bar so far.
I wish I had another one. Its sweet but exactly what I was craving this morning! Lunch was my favorite so far too- white cheddar mac and cheese. Wish I was looking forward to another of these tomorrow instead of the chocolate fudge bar. I also figured out that I like the Turboshake much better when I have blended it with the ice and water instead of just shaking it. It turned out light and fluffy! I had the meatballs 4 with marinara over some zoodles and chopped red pepper.
Side of broccoli slaw topped with salsa. It could have used more sauce and the meatballs were very soft. Day 5 Final Day: Peanut butter granola bar for breakfast was TINY and very sweet.
Do I sound upset? A bar and a salad is not my favorite lunch ever. Dinner was the chicken pasta parmesan which was surprisingly good! Big squares of chicken and the sauce tasted like real cheese. Anyway, this was my very long and in depth review. I hope it was helpful and gives you an idea of what the food is like. I would do it again but will probably give myself a break at this point.
I didn't have a lot of social commitments during the week, but this would be hard to sustain had I been more active or coming and going through the week. I liked the portion control and didn't often feel hungry when I went to bed, but I just got tired of breakfast bars and processed cheese.
It was great to have veggies as sides at least. You eat three Jenny Craig meals plus a snack per day, and supplement with fruit, vegetables and dairy. Once a week, you get a weigh-in and pep talk with a consultant - who is not a dietician and who earns commissions from selling you products. There's also round-the-clock phone support.
Jenny Craig has a good track record for short-term weight loss up to one year. In a UC San Diego clinical trial of dieters funded by Jenny Craig , Jenny Craig clients lost 11 percent of their initial weight after 12 months, compared with 3 percent weight loss by those who were dieting on their own.
The "doctor-designed" Bistro M. The price is a cut above the competition, too. The plan tries to help you avoid a weight-loss stall out by varying the daily calorie intake between 1, and 1, By eating a little more some days and a little less on others, you'll supposedly prevent your body from becoming used to the same number of calories every day.
While no university studies support the theory that varying caloric intake aids weight loss, the high quality of the food and the relatively large portion sizes have been praised by Health magazine, Dr. Phil and The New York Times. Some plan users have complained of a lack of choices and menu flexibility compared to other plans, but a company spokesman says they offer more than entrees and can make substitutions to accommodate allergies and food preferences.
It's a reasonable price for well-made food with slightly faster average weight loss than with Jenny Craig. This meal-delivery service, endorsed by Marie Osmond and Dan Marino, emphasizes foods with a low glycemic index. The underlying premise is that controlling blood sugar levels leads to weight loss. The heat-and-eat prepared meals and snacks contain roughly 55 percent "good" carbs, 25 percent protein, and 20 percent fats; like Jenny Craig, you add fruits, vegetables and dairy.
Support is available through phone counseling and online chat rooms. There's plenty of research showing that following a diet of 1, to 1, calories a day, such as Nutrisystem, can cause weight loss. For example, a study by the Obesity Research Center at St.
Luke's Roosevelt Hospital in New York found that postmenopausal women who followed a 1,calorie plan for 16 weeks lost an average of 21 pounds.
For a meal-delivery diet system, Nutrisystem is more economical than Jenny Craig. Although today's program is not as stringent as the original liquid fast Medifast launched decades ago, the low-fat, relatively low-carb plan is designed to bring about rapid weight loss by coaxing your body into a "fat-burning state" known as ketosis.
The 70 meal replacement choices include shakes, bars, soups, pudding, oatmeal, chili, pretzel sticks, cheese puffs, and scrambled eggs. If you can stick with it, a diet of 1, calories a day can certainly induce rapid weight loss.
A common concern with such low-calorie diets is that you'll quickly regain the weight, but in a small clinical trial recently published in the journal Experimental Biology , after 10 months, only about one in five people regained all the weight they had lost. Choose this more extreme plan only if quick weight loss is your priority.

By Peg on January 20, I was under the impression that when I ordered this from La Leela that I would be receiving the product not a card with a code for the Nutritsystem web site.
The charge for mailing a card was overpriced. It should be stated in the information somewhere that they are just selling a card! And that you have to go to a web site and then sign up to get your product. I would not have bought this after seeing that I could get it cheaper on the Nutrisystem web site.
