Ghrelin is a hormone that tells us to eat. The important thing to remember that we would need studies to know if the NutriSystem shake did any of this. So how much fructose is too much? Well, according to this paper titled Fructose: To say fructose and high fructose corn syrup is controversial is an understatement and that's why I wanted to calmly present some of the evidence here. This is not all of the research on fructose and that's why I feel it's best discussed with someone who knows about what you might be eating to make a more personalized assessment.
Registered dietitians RDs are very good at this and you can find one in your area by going to their website — EatRight.
Is the fructose in the Nutrisystem shake too much? Is the effect of fructose blunted because of the fiber that is also in the shake? I don't know the answers to these questions. While I think most people on NutriSystem might probably be consuming less fructose than the average person, I would not be surprised if fructose is eventually removed from the ingredients.
For more on fructose, see this video from NutritionFacts. I am not sure why. This sweetener is also known as lo han or lo han guo. It has zero calories and is over times sweater than sugar. For a run down of various natural and artificial sweeteners, see this article from Nutrition Action. I used chocolate flavor for my taste test, although Nutrisystem also has coffee and vanilla flavors. When you tear open the packet, I could smell the chocolate when I brought it close to my nose.
I did as directed — except I mixed the contents for 10 seconds using my Vitamix. My opinion is that I liked the taste. The shake was not thick or watery. It was not gritty either. It had a light chocolate taste that I thought was pretty tasty. When I drank all of the shake, there was no significant product left at the bottom of the glass either.
The picture to the right shows what it looked like when I made it. I also used the glass that was included when I purchased the shakes. I think it did for about minutes or so. I believe the effect was greater when I mixed it with 10 oz of water. It still tasted good when I mixed it with 10 oz of cold water. I believe the appetite reducing effects of the shake are the result of the volume of liquid used, along with the fibers and protein mentioned above.
Do you have to mix it with water? One could mix it with milk, almond milk, flax-seeds, etc. While this can adjust the taste, just remember that this will also increase the calories of the Nutrisystem shake. The same shake can be used by both men and women. While there may be differences in how men and women metabolize supplements, I am not aware of any evidence that the shake works differently in men. I expect it to work the same in both genders. While I'm not aware of any studies comparing weight loss in those who only used the NutrisiSystem shakes verses those using the shakes in addition to the whole Nutrisystem program, my guess is that in those who ate fewer calories, drinking the shakes alone could lead to some weight loss.
Keep in mind that this is the same logic with any weight loss shake too. The shakes help by substituting a lower calorie meal for a higher calorie meal we might normally eat. Yes, the ingredients list above mentions soy protein isolate. This makes up some of the protein in the shake. There is no caffeine in the Nutrisystem shake. That's good especially those who are sensitive to caffeine.
There are many ingredients in the NutriSystem shake but as far as I can tell, 3 ingredients appear to have the most evidence to help weight loss. I present these for those who are on a budget and want to do a little bit of experimenting to try to make their own homemade weight loss shake. Another option is to try using a ready made fiber supplement like Metamucil. See my Metamucil review for more on that. I believe the Nutrisystem shake is safe especially if it's used in addition to eating real food.
In other words, I feel it's safe as long as people don't just use the shakes to replace all the food they eat. Overall, I don't see the shakes causing problems in the vast majority of people use use them.
That said, it's wise to consult ones primary care doctor first in cases of:. Nutrisystem also warns not to use the shakes in conjunction with a very low calorie diet whcih they define as calories per day unless supervised by your doctor.
This is likely because this low amount of calories likely stops people from getting enough nutrients and is not safe for most people. In those who try to make their own homemade weight loss shake, I prefer konjac powder over the capsules. Konjac fiber swells in size when it comes in contact with liquid.
This could increase the risk of choking. I also think people with type II diabetes should speak to their doctor, registered dietitian or pharmacist. This is because of the of the fructose in the shake. Does it raise triglyceride levels? I bring this up not to bash the product or be controversial, but just to be safe. If the shake helps diabetes lose weight, then this, in turn would be expected to reduce triglyceride levels -and improve diabetes. Their corporate number is According to this Bloomberg article , the company began in , under another name, Shape-Up.
NutriSystem has been a BBB accredited business since See their BBB file for updates and more information. If, on the other hand, people use the shakes and modify their eating — whether on their own or by using NutriSystem products — then I feel weight loss will occur.
At the end of the day, it really does mostly come down to calories. You have any advice for a hopeful woman just trying to make it through 1 more diet before resorting to surgery?
Hi Roxanne, congrats on losing 13 pounds! That is a lot of money to pay for the shakes.
