3123 Nutrisystem Consumer Reviews and Complaints
Archived from the original on August 17, Archived from the original on March 8, I will be returning to your site for more soon! I'm very disappointed with the service I receive so I will take my business to a place that has better customer service. I've found it really helpful in keeping my protein levels up when I'm working out regularly - while still keeping calories down.
During the lunges, the arms and back rest, while the legs rest during the pull-ups. Jack uses such exercise pairings to do escalating density training, an interval protocol with a built-in challenge.
To try this challenge: Choose two exercises that use opposite movements or work completely different muscles -- pair a pushing exercise with a pulling exercise or a lower body move with an upper body move.
As an example, consider a dumbbell bench press and an inverted row. For each exercise, choose a weight with which you can perform 10 reps. Alternate between the exercises, performing just five reps of each move, with the rep weight, in each set. Rest as needed between sets and pairs so that you can complete each set of five without failing.
As with cardio intervals, strength intervals like these won't work if your reps aren't high-intensity. Continue alternating between the exercises for a set time -- 10 or 15 minutes, for example -- keeping track of how many total sets you can do. In following sessions, try to beat your score by finishing more sets in that time or by finishing the same number of sets but with tougher weights. Density training sessions are great to add to the end of a traditional strength training workout, Jack says.
For a complete density training workout, he suggests performing multiple time blocks in the same session, using new exercise pairings for each.
Other pairs he recommends include a goblet squat with a single-arm dumbbell row, a reverse lunge with pushups or pulldowns, deadlifts with dumbbell overhead presses or split squats with a rowing exercise. Countdown workouts also use exercise pairs and are a motivating way to finish a workout, says Mike Wunsch, performance director at Results Fitness in Santa Clarita, California.
With each round of the exercise pair, the workout involves one fewer rep of each move -- moving from sets of six to five to four, and so forth, until the count reaches zero. That finish-line mentality can keep you going. As with density training, Wunsch recommends pairing opposing exercises for countdowns, but also suggests picking moves that have a rhythm. Moves like the kettlebell swing, squat thrusts and pushups work well. Wunsch says stress-busting med ball slams and throws can add to the fun.
Moves like these, he explains, can result in injury if your form falters while performing exercises at a fast pace. For the same reason, he also advises avoiding overhead-pressing moves like dumbbell thrusters. To try your own countdown, choose a pair of exercises from Wunsch's following list. Start by performing six reps of the first exercise, then six of the other move.
Return to the first exercise and perform five reps, then do five reps of the second exercise. Continue alternating in this way until you reach zero. In each workout after that, add one rep to every exercise, Wunsch says. If one countdown isn't enough, choose a second pair from the list of exercises or create your own pair of opposing moves. To combat boredom and train faster and harder, Rooney designed a workout protocol around that's kept him lean: He calls this workout "the hurricane.
Each hurricane is broken into three groups of three exercises, called rounds. This design allows users to build muscle and keep their heart rates up throughout the workout, which usually lasts between 16 and 22 minutes.

Comments for Nutrisystem 1 Add Your Comment. I decided to try Nutrisystem because of the fact that I did not have to learn how to cook to lose weight.
I also liked the fact that I did not need to count calories or weigh portions. The food with Nutrisystem tastes great. I have lost 14 pounds with Nutrisystem and I am still losing weight. I feel healthier than I have felt in a long time. I love the results I am seeing. I feel much more confident about myself. Nutrisystem is hassle free.
The biggest thing I have to worry about with Nutrisystem is which delicious food I feel like eating for dinner tonight.
Building Good Habits 4 out of 5 stars. I think Nutrisystem builds good habits - portion control and good website for good support. I lost almost 40 lbs since April it's now December with absolutely no exercise. I finally quit my gym membership after 4 months. They were quite supportive and worked with me the whole time. I'll return to Nutrisystem if the weight returns, but so far so good, and it's holiday overeating time! Next time I go veggie 4 out of 5 stars.
I tried Nutri System almost two years ago and lost 22 pounds pretty quickly. If I need it again, I'll try the vegetarian meals as I hear they're just as tasty and easy to prepare as the Basic Plan. I gave the Basic Plan 4 stars because one shipment of food I received was missing two snack bars. Be sure to count your food when you get it to ensure everything is there. Easy As Pie 5 out of 5 stars. I just started Nutrisystem about a week ago and I absolutely love it! I am a very picky eater, so I thought the food was going to be questionable, but it is surprisingly good.
I really like that I don't need to count calories or spend a lot of time preparing meals. I have been pretty good about completing the daily logs online exercise, meals, water, etc. They help me keep on track. One of the things I think is absolutely great about Nutrisystem is the literature they provide with your 1st order. I received a restaurant guide used it twice already and a menu book that includes approved foods you can use to supplement your menu at the grocery store.
I am doing the 5 day flex plan, but am contemplating upgrading to the full 7-day program as it really is a no brainer and I am concerned about having the liberty to choose my own meals on the weekends that has proven to be very dangerous! The program is really simple to follow and my carb, sugar and salt cravings are gone. Today my wife came home with a cookie for my son she bought at Starbucks.
It looked so good, so I decided to have the NS chocolate chip cookie for my dessert and it was very satisfying. I love this program! I have been on Nutrisystem for 6 months and I have lost just over 35 lbs. I also joined a local gym and have a personal trainer which of course helps. My goal is to look as good as the day I graduated from High School when I go to my 50th class reunion in By the way, I already think I look better than the day I graduated!
I know, wishful thinking, right? I've been on it for over a year and only lost 45 pounds. My support group keeps telling me to stick with it longer, claiming that if you stick with the plan you will lose all the weight you want. I've read on the NS support forums that 45 pounds is great, but I had hoped that I would have lost pounds by now. Maybe I'll need to start exercising after all.
When I started the program I did not know if I would stick with it. Diets can be hard to stick with sometimes. However, the Nutrisystem plan is not hard to stick with. The plan is laid out so simply that anyone can follow it. The Nutrisystem plan comes with a money back guarantee. If a person joins the program and does not like it he can receive his money back. The plan is so easy to follow. I have lost 22 pounds on the program while eating things like chocolate cake. Unlike Medifast, the food is delicious.
If you are thinking of trying the plan but are afraid that you will not like the food please stop worrying. The Nutrisystem plan comes with a great menu with foods on the menu that are very delicious.
I have lost 32 pounds and finally feel like I may make my goal of losing I wasn't thrilled with the food when I started, but now that I can choose the foods that I really like it is much better. I love the pizzas loaded with red pepper or onions and pineapple.
We've had out of town company and been to many family gatherings, where I used to overeat. I find that when I have my own food that I like and because I am rarely hunger now, that the temptation to cheat is just not there.
I also love most of the desserts, but who doesn't: Five years ago I lost 62 lbs on NS, but over the years I gained back 38 lbs. Now I am back on the system and intend to stay until I reach my goal weight. My co-worker is using Jenny Craig but it was just to cost prohibitive for me.
I've tried her meals and honestly didn't think they were as tasty as Nutrisystems are. Just 65 Pounds Left To Go 4 out of 5 stars. I am on my 10th day on Nutrisystem and I absolutely love it! The food is great and a lot better tasting than Jenny Craig. I have lost 8 pounds so far and am really excited. I have 65 more to go to reach my goal weight. The website is full of good information and tons of motivation which I need and love!!
Anyone can do this diet. At 32 years old, I had surpassed pounds and went on a diet with Slimfast Shakes and low fat dinners that I made. I was single at the time and had the time to prepare my own meals and exercise vigorously for about an hour 5 days a week.
Needless to say, I did lose 40 lbs in 3 months, but it was hard work and I was always hungry. I'm now 40 years old now and after several failed starts I decided to give Nutrisystem a go. Being married with 2 children, my time is much more limited now. Nutrisystem is perfect for this reason as I don't have to count calories — it's all done online for me. The meals are reasonably good and you can pretty much choose the meals you want.
The first month I went with the default menu and selected the meals I liked best for the second and third month. I'm following the menu strictly and my caloric intake is around calories a day. All in all, I have been on the diet for 42 days and I have lost 23 lbs and 3 inches off my waist! This program is well worth it! I needed to go on a diet. I had gained 25 pounds over the last year and I could not fit into any of my clothes.
I did not want to go buy a whole new wardrobe when I already had a perfectly good one. With Nutrisystem I have access to a website that allows me to track my weight loss progress. I enjoy logging onto the website and seeing how far I have come. I also get support from the website. I enjoy almost all of the foods Nutrisystem has to offer. They all taste pretty good. The best part of Nutrisystem is that I have lost weight with a program that is extremely easy to follow.
I liked many aspects of the diet; however, I thought the food portions were too small. Maybe I'm too used to supersizing everything? The Nutrisystem plan does work though. When I was using the plan I lost about fifteen pounds. The plan was also very easy to follow. I did not have to weigh out food. I did not have to count calories. I did not have to figure out which foods to eat to lose weight.
I just had to follow the instructions that came with the plan and eat the food that the plan provided me with. When I joined the Nutrisystem plan I also received 24 hour access to the Nutrisystem web site where I could chat with someone for support daily if I needed to.
Haven't used it, but its nice to know its there for me. The food was just as tasty as pre-cooked frozen meals you buy in the grocery store. I enjoyed many of the foods that Nutrisystem offers. The desserts and snacks were delicious. The dinners are done very nicely with foods that are very tasteful and full of flavor. The breakfasts were good I especially liked the pancakes. The lunches were also good. The thing I did not like about Nutrisystem was that the portions of foods they provided were too small.
The program is extremely easy to use.
