In the past, this plan only allowed you to get pre-selected meals. I wanted to pull down right after my fourteenth birthday and I went to the gym regularly and I did see a lot of difference. My Blog Designer- Linda. There are definitely some ways to keep the costs down though. About Me Lisa "Hi! This is one thing I want everyone to take home with them.
I do work out times a week and try to watch what I eat during the week but weekends for me are very hard. I figure this portion control meals is the way to go since there is no measuring, weighing or anything like that.
I should get the food in a couple of days. I am hoping to to lose 25 lbs within the next 2 months following this plan and exercising religiously! If you have tried this plan recently please let me know your thoughts. Is it possible to lose 3 lbs a week on this with exercise?
How much did you lose and how long were you on this program to lose it? I can only afford this for about 2 months. Anybody on Nutri System now or tried it recently???? All the posts that I found on here regarding Nutrisystem are very old. I want to get a recent opinion on the food and success on this diet.
I've never tried nutrisystem, but I was on Jenny Craig and that's the same thing. I understand the ease of having portion sizes already measured out for you because that's why I signed up, too. Not having to prepare my own meals was another bonus because I'm lazy and I am a terrible cook, so that part was good.
However, my problem with any of these programs that force you to eat prepackaged foods is that it doesn't teach you how to choose and measure your own food. So, you might do really well and lose the weight on nutrisystem, but as soon as you go off, you'll gain it all back again. Not only that but, at least with Jenny Craig, the food messed up my digestive system so badly that I couldn't eat real food for a while.
I stupidly went back on it again like 15 years later and thankfully I got sick right away from the food so I was able to cancel before I got in too deep. But these prepackaged foods are so filled with preservatives, sodium, chemicals, soy and all sorts of unnatural crap that your body will not be happy about, I think it's just not a good idea. I have major problems with soy because it's an estrogenic.
Most overweight women have overabundance of estrogen so they should be staying as far away from soy as possible if they know what's good for them. As annoying as it is to have to watch what you eat, really South Beach diet and Weight Watchers are two of the best and healthiest lifestyles out there.
It's hard to put in that effort to really pay attention to what you're eating, believe me I know because I'm extremely busy between work full time and grad school part time. But honestly, the only methods that will truly help you in the long run are those that teach you how to eat healthy on your own so you're not depending on their food to either continue losing weight or to maintain your weight loss.
That's my two cents. You can try it but I'm just saying, think about what you'll do when you've done your 2 months. What are you going to do about food? How are you going to prepare your own meals and how will you cope when you don't have the prepackaged stuff anymore? That's all stuff you need to think about. NutriSystem - Results - Good or Bad? Kszan; Thanks for you input!
I do appreciate it. I have been on NS for about 5 days and I really can't complain about anything yet. Haven't had any problems with the food at all. I actually have alot more energy and feel better than when I started. I have tried WW before Didn't really do anything for me. I am doing this for a couple of months, possibly 3 because I want to lose about 35 lbs.
I believe it is teaching portion size by eating the meals. I do know what I have to do once I get there to keep from gaining it back.
I am going to the gym everyday which I have always done anyway but plan to keep up with for the rest of my life. I just need a jump start because believe me I have tried everything. I think spending the money also gives me more of a incentive to really keep going. I won't screw up and waste my money. I haven't had any digestive problems as of yet so keeping my fingers crossed. I will post about my progress as time goes on.
Thanks again for the input I will keep that in mind!! Last edited by mod-anon; at Please use the Quick Reply button instead of Quote Reply. Well I have to say that I have been on NS for a week now and I really am feeling quite good about it! I like the food so far and haven't had any issues. I want to lose 40 lbs and I weighed in Monday and I lost 7!! It is so easy to do this plan I only wish I would have done it sooner. I know some of the weight is probably water but I'll take it!
I have been working out about x week drinking lots of water, eating my meals, lots of fruits and veggies. Feeling really good overall. This is really teaching me portion control. I was def eating way to big portions before. I will keep you posted on next weeks weigh in! Ok, here's my input: I have tried every diet out there-seriously. Nutrisystem was horrible for me.
I didn't like the food I rememeber one soup smelled exactly like dog food. I stuck to it for 2 weeks tho and didn't lose anything. I knew that I could not rely on pre-packaged foods and the only way I would be happy and get my healthy foods in would be WW. It has the highest success rate for people losing and keeping it off, plus it's one that doctors will always recommend.
I started in January and down 35lbs already. I can eat and drink what I want-which is the reality of life anyway, not eating pre-packaged foods! My opinion is if you try WW and it does nothing for you, then you din't follow the program exactly how you are supposed to. Lastly, to lose healthy you should lose no more than 2 lbs a week.
Slow but steady winds the race! You can lose fast other ways but it WILL come back. I have lost 7 lbs so far. I did a typo in my previous message of I am happy with this program. I like the idea of no measuring food out. As far as I know, the Nutrisystem kits and other menu items have to be purchased online, but you can have them shipped directly to your home or to your nearest Walmart store. Obviously, these kits are going to include more food than the 5-day versions, but just like the other kits, you get full access to the Nutrisystem counseling program.
To buy these kits you can buy a special card from Walmart, and then they can be redeemed on the official Nutrisystem website. They typically arrive at your home within about 4 to 10 days after you make the purchase. With all of this in mind, I personally think the best and easiest route to go is to sign up for a plan directly through Nutrisystem — especially if you have more than 10 pounds to lose.
As of today, Nutrisystem is offering some amazing discounts for TheDietDynamo. Does it actually work? The 5 Day Nutrisystem Kits sold at Walmart offer a quick an easy solution for proven weight loss.
They are also a great option for people to try Nutrisystem without committing to a full month's worth of food. Notify me of new posts by email. Leave this field empty. The 14 Day Starter Kit. Review Walmart Nutrisystem Kits.
