Nutrisystem Weight Loss Review
While NutriSystem's meals are healthy and well-balanced, they are all pre-packaged and have mammoth ingredient lists that contain countless unpronounceables. While many of those strange ingredients are no doubt used to keep the unfrozen foods from spoiling, they don't appear to be doing much in the freshness department.
I should also note that this diet is not very ecologically friendly. Because everything comes in wrappers and handy plastic and cardboard containers, my trash output for the last month easily tripled. As many readers have complained, NutriSystem often swaps meals in their orders. Because people are surely going to hate some of NutriSystem's foods, this can be very annoying.
But Jamie said that if anything is swapped and you don't like NutriSystem's replacement, to call your counselor and NutriSystem will send it to you free of charge, and even let you keep the food you didn't order. She said she had one customer who had all 54 of her monthly desserts swapped because she wanted just one every day of the diet and the warehouse happened to be out of it.
Jamie said NutriSystem sent her a box of 54 of the desserts she had originally requested. Overall, the diet definitely works. I surpassed my weight loss goal and I feel good. If one follows this diet closely, they will be eating healthy and surely lose significant weight.
The diet also taught me a lot about eating healthy, portion control and good kinds of calories versus bad. For the right people, I would suggest this diet. First, you need fairly deep pockets since it costs so much. You also have to be committed, which I suppose the payment for the plan already indicates. Finally, you have to be willing to cut out alcohol and dining which in my case meant much of my social life.
The diet would probably also be good for people who have shown prior commitment to diets but because of no real boundaries, didn't achieve their goals. With NutriSystem, your daily calorie intake fluctuates very little and as long as you follow their strictly defined daily planner, you're sure to burn off some calories.
However, because the diet is so strict, there's almost no adjustment for different lifestyles. Being young and automobile-less, I have a very active lifestyle. I walk at least four miles everyday, jog regularly throughout the week and am rarely sedentary. I am sure I am a more active dieter than many others, yet regardless, I was taking in the same daily calories like all the other men in the diet. My counselor said that if a customer is pounds overweight, he or she should add a few more daily servings.
But other than that, there is little room for flexibility. However, my personal example helps make the case for NutriSystem's strict diet. Despite my very active life, I was rarely hungry and sometimes wouldn't even need my final dessert or other serving.
