My hubby and i started on friday a 30 day cleanse. I did not want to go buy a whole new wardrobe when I already had a perfectly good one. Hey, just wanted to let you know that I read all the reviews and decided to give Nutrisystem a chance. Shame on you, Nutrisystem. We are happy to hear that you feel like you understand the program better after speaking with one of our counselors. Nutrisystem is a simple way to lose weight. I liked many aspects of the diet; however, I thought the food portions were too small.
Who Makes Isagenix?
Nutrisystem Turbo13 is based on 3 powerful strategies that guarantee its effectiveness. Losing weight is first and foremost an issue of eating the right amount of calories energy. This is why before starting a weight loss program, doctors and dietitians will always calculate your metabolic rate--the energy you expend throughout the day. Without knowing the number of calories your body burns, there is no way you can know how much food you are allowed to eat each day in order to reach your weight loss goal.
And so losing weight becomes a gambling game. Nutrisystem's first concern when you join their program is to estimate your metabolic rate. They do this by means of a questionnaire that let's them know your gender, age, height, weight, and your level of physical activity. Based on this data, they craft a weight loss plan specifically for you. This plan has the right range of calories each day allowing you to lose pounds a week.
Therefore, with Nutrisystem you are not on a "hit or miss" endeavor. Weight loss is inevitable if you stick to the program. Consuming the right amount of calories is one part of a successful weight loss regime. Making sure you give your body the right nutrients is the other part. Certainly, you will lose weight if you reduce the calories you eat. It contains a variety of different products, some of which are aimed at cleansing and hydrating.
By doing so it means you can lose weight without having to eat low-calorie foods for the other two meals of your day. For the sake of brevity, we cannot go into specific detail about all of the ingredients in all of the products in the day system. However, we can confidently tell you that there is nothing to be alarmed about. We looked at all their products and found no artificial compounds, flavorings, or chemicals in them.
The traditional day system includes dairy, which can be a problem for lactose intolerant people or vegans. However, there is a dairy-free version of the day system available which has very similar results anecdotally. They are all manufactured in the US with FDA certified ingredients and the company itself has a long-established reputation for safety. One of the most frequently reported side effects encountered by people on the day system is a headache.
We were unable to ascertain how common this issue is or the reasoning behind it. However, Isagenix state on their website that it could be a sign of dehydration and that anyone experiencing headaches should drink more water.
Isagenix has been operating for quite some time now, and as such there are plenty of professional and customer reviews that we were able to analyze. We were slightly surprised to hear about two negative recurring themes from many different reviewers. Several reviews negatively commented on the taste of the meal replacement shakes. Claims of bitterness and slightly sour tones were encountered too often for us to put it down to personal preference.
There certainly seemed to be a strong enough correlation for it to at least be considered as a potential legitimate issue. Additionally, the price of the products was commented on by many reviewers. We believe that if a product works it is worth paying for, but Isagenix is significantly more expensive than the competition. The system is not particularly novel or clever compared to any other meal replacement system. They use several marketing buzzwords and nice bottles to describe their products and make them sound advanced.
However, there is no denying that their products are low calorie. If you can stick to the plan we have no reason to think you will not lose weight providing your diet is reasonable. The amount of anecdotal evidence we found suggesting that the meal replacement shakes did not taste as good as expected was concerning. We feel there is enough evidence to suggest that this is a genuine issue. Meal replacement systems are not particularly complicated.
All they need to do is taste decent and stave off hunger until your next meal. If they are not appetizing enough for you to look forward to consuming them, the chances of you sticking to the plan and achieving your target weight are dramatically reduced.
When this taste issue is combined with the exorbitant price tag that is in our opinion unjustified , we can see no reason why would recommend Isagenix. They have a reasonably generous no questions asked day refund policy.
We were unable to verify the difficulty of the refund process, but as Isagenix is a large and reputable organization we see no reason to doubt it.
