The Nutrisystem Diet

The Promise


This program is great, but the portions sizes are smaller than I thought they would be. Now I can see why. I am so happy. I am convinced that these delicious breakfast foods are helping me lose the weight that I have always wanted to lose. I have lost 20 pounds in three months and haven't been exercising at all.

Nutrisystem Women's Basic Plan Reviews


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! I love the breakfasts and lunches, but have trouble with some of their dinner entrées. I have been using Nutrisystem for three weeks now and have lost a total of seven pounds, which is something that I am really proud of.

Nutrisystem has definitely helped me with eating the right kinds of food and controlling how much I eat. I love the food at breakfast and lunch, but dinner is a little tough. The cereals and muffins that I can get for breakfast are great. The soups for lunch are fabulous, as are the pasta dishes. However, dinner is another story. The Homestyle Beef has been my least favorite so far. I guess that is what is so good about the plan; I can change what I eat if I find something that I really dislike.

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! Nutrisystem has helped me so much with the eating part of that. The food tastes really great, and never once have I felt like I needed to eat something else after I have finished one of their entrées. I especially love the pasta dinner dishes. I feel like I can now eat pasta without feeling guilty; which is a nice change. That really has helped me a lot. The part I wish were different with Nutrisystem is the exercise portion.

I know that I can enter my exercise online, but I wish there were some more specific guidelines as to how much I need to exercise. 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? In the past, I always stayed away from things like muffins, granola bars, and pasta because I figured it would be too many calories. With Nutrisystem, I can have ravioli for dinner and feel like I had a real treat.

I feel like the Nutrisystem meals are a splurge enough! This has been really helpful in keeping me on track when my family goes out to eat. As a working mom, sometimes fast food is the only way dinner is going to happen, and the Nutrisystem Restaurant Guide has kept me on track on those nights. 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. I have been a chronic skipper of breakfast most of my adult life.

After Nutrisystem, I am sold on eating breakfast for weight loss. I absolutely adore their muffins and cereals. I am convinced that these delicious breakfast foods are helping me lose the weight that I have always wanted to lose. The Double Chocolate Muffins are my absolute favorite. The other really great thing about this plan is the Restaurant Guide. 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 woul dhave lost pounds by now. Maybe I'll need to start excercising afterall. I have lost a total of 25 pounds on the Nutrisystem diet. I know that should make me give them 5 stars, but I have to be honest. I do not like the snacks that I have tried, especially the soy chips.

I think they taste like paper. That said, I do really like the meals, especially the breakfast choices. The muffins and granola bars taste really good.

So do the cereals. The lunches are pretty good, but I absolutely love the pasta dishes for dinner. I am really happy with the weight loss, and this plan has, by far, been the easiest plan to implement.

I feel full after I eat, and this is the first weight loss program where I have felt like that. 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: I am not one for exercise, so the weight loss plans where they say you have to exercise 5 times a week really turn me off.

I know that Nutrisystem encourages exercise, but in two weeks I have lost 5 pounds without exercising at all. The food plan is so incredibly easy. I love that I just open up the boxes, and there is my food, ready for me to eat without having to cook or shop.

I am so happy to have someone else decide the details of what I should eat, but that I still have choices. I also am thrilled that I am losing weight without having to exercise at all. Nutrisystem is the easiest weight loss system out there. I am so happy with how it is working for me. I think I can really meet that initial goal that I set for myself. 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. I ordered my first round of Nutrisystem meals so that I could get them and start on January 1st. I am so happy with the results, because only two week into the plan, I have already lost six pounds. I am single, and it is much easier to just go through a drive-thru window for fast food than it is to cook for one person.

The lunches and dinners are the very best thing about this plan. The food tastes so great. I absolutely love the Hearty Beef Stew because it reminds me of the stew my mom used to make for me when I was a kid.

And I adore the Macaroni and Cheese as well. 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 three pounds, which I am thrilled about. However, I walk around really hungry! The problem is, it tastes so good that I want more of it. The Thick Crust Pizza tastes amazing. So does the Sweet and Sour Chicken. I am told that this will get easier soon because eating less than I am used to eating will make my stomach shrink.

I think the Restaurant Guide will be helpful once I get over my portion control issue. I guess part of losing weight is feeling hungry, but that is not something I am used to. 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. I still lost weight! I have lost about ten pounds so far. I feel like it should be a little more than that, but have you ever heard of someone losing ten pounds during the holidays? And honestly, I probably ate too much on my free days.

I am a true Nutrisystem fan! The best part of Nutrisystem is that I have lost weight with a program that is extremely easy to follow. I have been doing Weight Watchers for years with my friend. As she says, once all of your points are gone on Weight Watchers, you get to eat your spit for dinner!

Well, my friend got really sick of doing the point thing, so she switched to Nutrisystem. My friend lost four pounds the first week and three pounds the second week on Nutrisystem. Once I heard about her success, I decided to switch, too. I am so excited! I feel like a new person and I get compliments on how I look all of the time.

I get all of my meals prepared for me, planned for me, and best of all, they taste great. Nutrisystem has that all figured out for you. Nutrisystem is giving me time back because everything is completely planned out. 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 have around 50 pounds to lose, so I figure two pounds a week is a pretty good rate.

I really do like a lot of the food they deliver. The Chicken Pasta Parmesan is my favorite dinner meal so far. All of the soups are great, but I really love the Chicken Salad. I also think that the breakfast choices and dessert options are really helping me to stick to the diet.

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. But some items that you buy from the grocery store, like vegetables and fish, may involve more preparation.

Nutrisystem suggests you get at least 30 minutes of physical activity daily. You can break this up into three minute periods throughout the day. There are meal plans for vegetarians and people with diabetes. But the program does not have plans for people following a vegan diet. And it doesn't allow for certain food allergies including soy or peanut allergies , and it's not gluten-free.

The cost varies based on things like the plan you choose -- such as for women or men, vegetarians, older adults, or people with diabetes. The program has an online community and web-based tools, as well as help by phone.

You may face a challenge when you go off the program and have to make more food choices on your own. The program provides information on how to do this. Controlling calories and portions and eating regular meals is a healthy formula that should result in weight loss while on the plan.

It can be harder to make the transition to eating "real food" when you get closer to your weight-loss goal and don't rely on meals already made for you. Overall the diet is healthy for people with conditions like heart disease , high blood pressure , high cholesterol , and diabetes. Meals are low in sodium, saturated fats , and trans fats , and include high-fiber whole grains, smart carbs, healthy fats , lean protein, and a wide variety of foods.

The Nutrisystem diet is the ultimate in convenience. The food plan is so incredibly easy. I love that I just open up the boxes, and there is my food, ready for me to eat without having to cook or shop. I am so happy to have someone else decide the details of what I should eat, but that I still have choices.

I just finished two weeks on Nutrisystem. Nutrisystem was my last resort! I figured if I spent the money for the food, maybe I would actually stick to the plan and lose some weight. Maybe I can get a sandwich at a restaurant next week! My pants even feel a little loose!

This eating plan is so easy that I barely think about it. I can see this becoming a normal way of eating for me. Hopefully Nutrisystem is the answer to my weight loss problems. I am so happy with it that I am encouraging all of my friends to try it. After my three months of sticking to their regimen strictly, I have lost 21 pounds.

It is working so well. I love the way the food tastes. Pasta, chocolate, muffins, mashed potatoes! You name it, I can eat it! The choices are amazing. Every entrée tastes so different that I never get sick of eating the same thing. The Red Beans and Rice with Sausage is so good!
