What You Get For Your Money
I called a Nutrisystem counselor again. I had my own Nutrisystem goodies such as chocolate, pizza, potatoes, muffins and more. Here I was able to make other friends from a Nutrisystem support group who were reaching for the same goals. Great choice of colors! However to make this plan work you still have to provide most of the food yourself.
Nutrisystem Meal Plans
I found some items that I was not a huge fan of and opted to just not order them the second time around. However, even with adding in fresh fruits and vegetables and dairy products as suggested, my monthly finances for food are really NOT that much different than before when I sat down and really calculated it out. Different programs work better for some people more than others. I think the real key to success here is making the decision that you really are ready for a LIFE change and sticking to it!
Good luck to those of you who do decide Nutrisystem is the prgram for you. I had bad gas for the first week. That went away the second week. I would NOT recommend this diet food to anyone. Way too expensive, food is bad, causes bad gas and cramps and too much fine print. I was on this diet along with my mom, my dad, and later my brother before he moved out.
All 4 of us lost weight on it. We followed the meal plans for daily intake and ate out every saturday night just making better decisions then we did before. For the first 2 weeks i actually had to force myself to finish my meals, not because they tasted bad but because i was full.
After the first 2 weeks I was great with the amount of food, eating more then normal and losing weight. Since i have been off the nutrisystem for about 4 years i have gained the 15lbs back but now that i have been given the tools to succeed i know now that i can do it on my own when i want too without nutrisystem.
I hated this diet. If you want the portion control that Nutrisystem offers, save yourself the trouble and buy some LeanCuisines at the grocery store. Some things are better than others. I personally like the egg fritatta for breakfast, but the wedge potatoes and beef steak is basically bland crockpot food. And the hamburger patty was practically inedible but the nutrichocolates are yummy. I did Weight Watchers before and had much better luck with preparing my own meals and deciding what I wanted to eat each day.
The food is just gross. The NS diet does work. Anyone who says they are gaining weight are NOT following the diet. If you do some research, you will see that the sodium levels are less than the daily recommended levels. I have been on the diet for 2 weeks and lost 4 each week. You have to exercise with the program, just like any other diet. I have been on Nutrisystem for 3 months and have lost 26lbs, i like the food and it is very convenient to take to work, the diet does not work without the excerise along with it.
I have been on Ntrisystem now for 11 days. The first week I was hungry but I expected that. If you expect to lose weight you will have to cut down the number of calories you consume. I know I was consuming way to many. As you get older you need to consume even less and also increase your exercise.
The food quality varies but I have not had prolems eating anything. It is very convenient. I follow the program exactly and add in all of the foods they recommend. I have even eaten out 2 times! So far so good for me and I will continue as I have over 50 to lose.. Unless you plan on eating this food for the rest of your life!!! And my goal to lose is 30 lbs.
I think the food is good. This is a diet people! The food comes with a complete book on what else you can eat in addition to the pre-packaged foods. I just started this diet 1 week ago.
I was on the Medi-Fast Diet and they give you a book on the program. There were instructions on how to substitute food, exercise and how to go off the diet successfully. I decided to try Nutrisystem as I got tired of the same Medi-Fast food.
Nutrisystem needs to do the same. Give us a book of instructions!. So far I have only gained weight. The Nutrisystem seemed a program I could follow, so I joined. In 3 weeks, I have lost over 20 , although hungry, my physical condition is improving, and my leg swelling has almost returned to normal. I will continue to reach a goal of , and hopefully, beyond for the remainder of my life. Thank you so much for your review and sharing your story. We are so happy to hear how well the program is working for you.
Remember to use those unlimited non-starchy veggies. They can be a big help with hunger especially in your first couple weeks on the plan. You can also reach out to a counselor at press option two. They would be happy to go over more tips if needed. Please let us know if there is anything else we can do for you. Hope you have a wonderful day and congrats on your weight loss! Tomorrow is my last day on turbo take off. I was advised earlier this week to call back toward the end of my first week to speak with a counselor.
If I could speak with William every time I called that would be fantastic. Thank you so much for your review. We are so happy to hear you were pleased with your experience when speaking with William. Hope you have a wonderful day and welcome to the program! I would like to say for the first couple of days I found this a bit difficult but only because it was such a lifestyle change for me. Now I love it. I have lost 7.
No longer on blood pressure pills and I have more energy. Thank you so much for making my life happier. Thanks so much for sharing your review with us today. Congratulations on your success so far on the plan! We're happy to hear that you are finding the plan easy to follow.
If you ever have any questions, please let us know. The most important thing for me is that it is working. On the road to lose 80 lbs. I've lost 28 after only 6 weeks. The food is not fine dining but it is good enough and with enough variety to not be boring.
Some of the food is quite tasty and others only rate around good but, for me, that is not the point. The point is that now most of the time I am not hungry and I am losing weight without having to make major alterations to my life. Surely, there are times when I just want to get a pizza delivered and munch out but Nutrisystem provides ways to deal with that.
I'm not going to blow smoke, some self-control will be required. The few times I have some real cravings, I just pull up the weight chart and see that nice downward trend of weight and remind myself why I am doing this. The quick start program, for me, was the most difficult portion to get through but it surely did as it described.
My weight loss started quickly and tapered a bit, as expected, once I got on the regular weekly plan. I am still losing around 3 to 4 lbs a week which might be a little atypical but I'm not complaining.
This meal plan was exactly what I needed. Previously I ate healthy but I just ate too much. Comparing then to now, I realized I was eating roughly double what I should have been. So not only has this plan allowed me to lose weight but it has provided me with an idea of what meal sizes should be if I ever decide to stop with Nutrisystem. I personally think the frozen meals are a very good add-on as they provide more variety and tend to be a bit more tasty and satisfying.
I really do appreciate that this program exists. I just turned 50 not too long ago and was starting to have more concerns about my weight which has always been above 'normal'. Nutrisystem not only seems to be dealing with my weight but it also helped me ease my mind about my future health. I'm also a workaholic which means that previous diets I tried had, what I feel was, a significant impact on my lifestyle.
Which is probably the main reason they all failed. Nutrisystem is very simple. Take their base plan, modify the meal times to fit your current schedule, keep the intervals between meals roughly the same, and in no time it just becomes part of your day. The food for the most part is portable as well which is rather convenient. Again, Thank You for providing this product. Before I was skeptical about ever seeing what I consider a healthy weight but this product and changed that skepticism into hope and has provided exactly what the proverbial doctor ordered.
Plastic found in a dinner entree. It was very nice to see! I can't remember when this happened, maybe weeks ago. I thought the response took longer than it should have. Really tho', I've had great customer service every time I needed them. Wait times when phoning are awful. I am very happy with the 30 pounds that I have lost.
I love your food and do not want to totally stop my program. I am working with adjusting to everyday food lifestyle. But yet, I do not want to give up my program. I believe this will keep me on track with keeping my weight under control. Thank you for my delays in my order. I tried Nutrisystem and found out I am allergic. I tried returning the items as they indicated there was a full refund policy, and they told me I couldn't.
I called over seven times during the next 30 days and they were not cooperative or helpful at all. I got transferred around many times, and never had any help at all. I ended up moving, and canceled my card. Two months after that they tried charging my credit card and claim they shipped product, which I didn't order.
I never received product because I had moved. Very poor customer service! They try and snag you in and force you to keep buying, even if you don't like the product and even if you are allergic to it! I have told a lot of people about this horrifying experience and they are all appalled and said there are much better programs out there! We are sorry to hear that you are unable to eat our food and we apologize for the poor service you've received.
We will be looking into this and reaching out soon. I have spoken with Chanta in her role as counselor. I was impressed with the interest and patience she posses. I am now able to form a more comprehensive plan moving forward with my required personal participation with the Nutrisystem to reach my weight loss goal.
I am enthusiastically encouraged with my decision to take on this venture for my future. We are so happy to hear that Chanta was able to help you gain a better understanding of the program! For more information about reviews on ConsumerAffairs. My NuMi bottle issue was already taken care of. He therefore missed the window to order the bottle in time for the 2nd month shipment. We would like to have it delivered with the order that is coming up for the 3rd month - we get auto delivery, so it is already set up.
We are happy to hear that your water bottle issue has been handled but are sad to hear that your husband is still having issues. We will be assigning this to a member of the Consumer Experience Team who will be reaching out soon. I am very disappointed with the food. Most of it tastes the same to me and actually upsets my stomach. I did not realize I only had two weeks to cancel and much of that was mostly drinks. Then you keep trying different food thinking something will be edible.
I know there is plenty of fine print in contracts that should be read. I do not recall being verbally told about these conditions. This was a lesson that left a very bad taste in my mouth. We are sorry that the foods upset your stomach and that you were unaware of the auto-delivery nature of the program.
Not clear when I ordered that it would be on automatic order. Food is not good, not good instructions, dinners were bland. Too many entrees with spicy tomato sauce and cheese, dinners are bland. Shakes made me sick. Emails were only to sell more. Thank you for writing this review. We are sad to hear the foods were not to your liking and that the deliveries would be automatic. We will be looking into your account and reaching out soon.
This is a follow-up to the review I posted on September 5. Soon after I posted my first review, a rep from Nutrisystem contacted me via email. The email was courteous, professional, and apologetic for the experience I had. The rep went on to offer replacement of the damaged food items I had received and encouraged me to give their company another try. In light of this swift response and their sincere desire to ensure that I was happy with their product and service, I am revising my review.
I accepted a ready-made menu that containing some items that I did not enjoy. In the future, I will make a point to select food items that I now know to be more to my liking than others. I called on April 27, to cancel and spoke with a guy named Anton sp?
Anton gave me a really hard time. He asked a lot of questions, and I answered them. Anton said he had to ask the questions and that I should call back when I had more time to answer his questions. I said no and that I wanted to cancel now. He got nasty and said I wasn't listening to him. So he asked another question. He said your program is cancelled. Then the phone went silent. There was about 2 minutes of silence. I feel like Anton was extremely unprofessional, rude, and deceptive.
So Anton has made me not want to use Nutrisystem again. I've lost twenty pounds and more to go. It's an easy program to follow if you have the food. The company needs to send your full order at once or even a day or two apart to be able to follow their program. They send frozen first and your lucky to get your packaged products 5 or 6 days later.
Separate warehouses or not, each part of your order should ship around the same time. Lost ten pounds so far. I love the ease and convenience of it. I recommend going for the highest level option and getting the frozen foods. The shelf stable breakfasts and lunches are good, but the shelf stable dinners are mostly inedible, mushy pasta in pouches and pizzas resembling lunchables.
The program is costly enough, so go the extra and get the frozen stuff. Nutrisystem has helped me to lose 40 lbs, still have 40 more to lose. It is such a blessing to have the food prepared and quick to cook, especially when I am struggling with a craving or emotional eating. More than weight loss it is teaching me about myself and how to eat for my body.
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.
