When I was using the plan I lost about fifteen pounds.

Thanks, glad you find it helpful!

The most important thing, when it comes to lasting weight loss, is the big picture of what you eat, not specific foods. Delicious foods that help you diet? It sounds too good to be true. So take this list when you go to the supermarket: Beans Inexpensive, filling, and versatile, beans are a great source of protein. Soup Start a meal with a cup of soup, and you may end up eating less. Dark Chocolate Want to enjoy chocolate between meals? Eggs and Sausage A protein-rich breakfast may help you resist snack attacks throughout the day.
Nuts For a great snack on the run, take a small handful of almonds, peanuts, walnuts, or pecans. Apples Skip the apple juice and the applesauce and opt instead for a crunchy apple.
Yogurt Whether you prefer Greek or traditional, yogurt can be good for your waistline. That doesn't prove that yogurt caused weight loss, but it stood out among other foods. I live in Ottawa Ontario Canada. Where in Canada can I join.
Are the costs of the meals increased to take in the difference between the American and Canadian do. Also what about duty and taxes, as well as shipping fees. I am a woman ,77 yrs old and need to lose at least 25 lbs.
Please try to enlighten me. Thank you very much for your assistance. What exactly is in the Turbo Shakes? Are the ingredients identified on the package? Best of luck — Norm. Hi Obie — I added a picture of the nutrition fact label on our Nutrisystem Shake page. I have limited freezer space and feel that the frozen foods would be the way for me to start and continue a controlled size appropriate diet.
Does anyone offer three or four shipments monthly? If you get the Basic plan none of the foods are frozen, so that may be another option you could consider. Diet-to-Go has a weekly shipment option — we have a review about them here: Hope that helps — NS. I have used your plan several years ago and did loose weight, but have gained some back. I am 81 yrs old and on a fixed income now. Having to buy extra food is not feasible me. Any suggestions how I can use your plan without extra purchases?

No money buy food I have. 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.
