Discount Code Offer


I have been on many programs before with little success. Major plateau and very discouraging. First, take the time to put the food on a plate like you would normally eat. This may not sound big at ALL to a lot of you, but trust me, if I wore a tight shirt and let's be honest, I'm 28 so I want to I know i will be on the program for a few months but, I really feel like I need the structure of this program right now.

What's New with Nutrisystem for 2018?


I'd appreciate any advice. Hey Lynette, that's an amazing story, congrats! You're right, it's all about achieving the body size you are meant to be—and can be through getting into the simple habit of right eating and sufficient exercise each day. Just reading these comments and had to put my 2 cents: Keep going girl, you already lost 5 pounds you can lose another 5 and more.

Just don't quit and do believe in yourself! I looked back at your comments and gotta say, your killing it girl woo yeah! Baggy clothes are the coolest by-product of this diet! When I hear folks say they lost this or that pounds, I think to myself, that's cool. That's what we're doing this for. For US not for the bathroom scales! I love to hear people winning with their diet. I finished 3 months on Nutrisystem just before Christmas after I shrunk from a size 18 to a size 10!

All that fat was gone baby and my old clothes all looked like they were made for an elephant. I was so happy I threw a party for my friends to burn my old clothes in the yard and it was so amazing. It cost me all my meager savings to buy new clothes for this new small size body but I'm the happiest girl on my block for sure!

Oh yeah, one month later I'm still the same size and weight. I eat only fresh food that tastes great and drink plain water or herbal tea now. No more junk or soda and I feel and look totally amazing! I am on day Lost 5 lbs first several days and have not lost anything since.

Major plateau and very discouraging. I am going to stick with it another month. New delivery should be today. I have stuck to the plan. Not understanding how I'm not dropping weight. My breakfast used to be calories.

Now I don't go over for the entire day for 1 month? Why am I not losing? Hope someone can please answer me. Hi Dr Cook, Thank you so much for your words of encouragement they are appreciated.

I posted it twice because I thought the first one wouldn't go through because my email address was wrong! Thanks for posting it! I am on day 4 and no soda at all! I haven't cheated once and I feel great! I can't wait to see how much weight I have lost at the end of the week! Hey Lisa, great to hear from you that you're starting with such a positive and determined attitude which is sure to get you to where you want to be.

I just saw you posted the same comment twice—I published the first one as you can see but the second is a duplicate and the system won't publish it I have safeguards to stop me accidentally publishing duplicate content to this blog. Anyway, good luck to you too and I wish you success! Hi, Sorry I just realized my email address was wrong when I sent my first reply. This is the correct one! Hi, First let me began by saying I am 45, 5'9 and weigh lbs. I had weight loss surgery 3 years ago where my heaviest I weighed lbs and my lowest lbs.

So after the surgery, 3 years later I have gained back a total of 30 lbs. I am addicted to McDonalds Cokes, I buy at least a day! Needless to say I am tired of being sluggish, overweight, jittery and grumpy! I knew I needed to first stop the soda period! So I did that and on the same day went to Walmart and purchased 2 of the Homestyle packs so I can try it for 10 days.

I just started on NS. I thought that I would have total withdrawals from having quit Soda cold turkey on day 1 but I have only had an occasional headache. I have had gas also but that is ok. I am not hungry at all thanks to eating the 6 small meals and also that my stomach doesn't hold that much anyways.

I do want to say that the food is actually very good at least all the ones I have had so far have been! I haven't weighed myself yet because I want to be surprised and weigh at the end of the week. This is really easy to follow. I haven't exercised at all but I plan on incorporating it into my schedule. Here is to a New Me in ! I am please with the plan so far. I lost 8lbs My first week, but I think a lot was fluid from eating so much bad food before.

The first days was the hardest but I like the fact that I don't have to cook it and weigh it and count calories and figure all that out. I do not want to have to do a meal plan, I do not have time for that. I can make my family a nice dinner and still have the veggies with them and I heat mine up and we can sit all down together without me having to figure out what can I make for them that I can eat. I did the QVC deal and got the plan for less than what it would cost me to do smart ones or lean cuisine.

This is delivered to my door and for an entire month. I don't even have to shop for it. You can not beat that. The food is not the greatest but what microwave meal is. It is not the worst I have had and I am so excited over this, I feel amazing and look forward to be a long time customer.

I have now lost 8. I love green beans.. I still have 13lbs I am wanting to lose Are you allowed Coffee on Nutrisystem? I use to drink decafe coffee. I did use truvia and skim milk when I used to drink it.. I do not drink any soda at all Just want to lose the lbs.. Thanks for the encouragement, anything that will help me stay on track. Hey Faye, that was a big drop in weight those first 5 days.

A possible answer is that much of that could have been excess water weight, because believe it or not when you start to drink lots of water the body actually releases excess stored water. It all depends on how much water weight you were carrying to begin with as it can vary a lot between people. But in any case, don't feel discouraged. It's early days into diet and your body is just balancing itself out. The pounds will continue to fall more steadily as you continue with the plan.

Remember, most expert agree you should expect pounds lost per week on a low calorie diet like Nutrisystem and this is a reasonable average. Stay determined and positive and good luck with achieving your goals. I started the program and the first 5 days I lost 7. Hey Dolly, I'm so glad you're succeeding so amazingly well and have such a positive attitude toward the program.

Yes, I changed the ads since Nutrisystem have started their new promotion for already, so I had to include their new offers in my review so new visitors will get the latest information. Congrats and keep on keeping on!

Hi Dr Cook, I read this review a month ago and signed up for the core womens plan. I can't thank you enough for pointing me at Nutrisystem! I have already lost 14 pounds and ordered my second month.

The food is much better than I expected from hearing some of the very negative commenters said about it. I felt a bit hungry the first few days, but I told myself it was my body telling me it was using up excess fat to make me smaller and lighter. And it really was! After those first few days, I had no hunger issues at all and felt great.

Better than great — I have so much energy now that I never had before. I really appreciate the depth of information you provide here and I noticed you changed the ads and some of the info from Fast 5 to Turbo 10 since I last looked in. That looks real interesting but you know I will stick with my plan because it works for me and that's all I need.

Good luck and best wishes to all the others who are on this diet program! Hey Rebecca, it's always great to hear from folks that are doing this with a positive attitude and real determination to succeed like you guys. All I can say is you're going the right way and just stick with the plan and you'll be wearing even smaller size pants before you know it! I am one week shy of a month on the program.

My fiance and I are doing it together as we have gained weight together over the past two years. We are both in the lbs range. She loves it and finds it easy to stick with. I have a harder time feeling full, but I am learning to work through that. It is nice to have the food all right there and quick.

I can cook, and cook well, however we don't always have the time to cook well. If I got home tired we'd go out. If we hadn't been grocery shopping, we'd go out or grab a quick bag of chips.

So having everything quick and easy is a great thing for both of us and makes it easier to behave. The food it hit or miss, but it is generally not THAT bad. There have only been one or two items like the doughnut that were horrible.

Most of the food is pretty good and some of it I absolutely love. I can tell you that my size 26 pants are loose and my size 24's are starting to fit better. My fiance's pants are fitting her better as well. So far, we love it. We buy canned veggies on sale to add to the dinners.

The cost is high, but compared to our previous eating out, we are still saving money. We will definitely continue, probably for 6 months to a year. We have a lot of weight to lose. I hear many saying that this program is not teaching you how to eat right, but it IS. Portion control is one of my biggest problems. My body is learning the full triggers and eating 6 times a day helps my body process things. Gaining weight off program will happen if I do not keep the portions down and frequent.

You cannot go back to eating three large meals a day. Love the hunger feeling But I have only lost 2. I will give it a couple more days. If I don't lose any more. I will return all their food and want my money back. I hope they don't give me a hard time for that.

My goal was to lose 15 lbs. This is my 4th time. It has come a long way from the 80s when you used to have to go to a weekly meeting and talk with a counselor and listen to speeches and pick your food out from racks in a warehouse like setting. Each time I've done it, I lost successfully except the last year but that was my fault. I only did a 5 day plan and then went whole-hog on the weekends. I'm back on it and now sticking to it on most weekends, not all.

It'll just take me more time to lose, but that's fine with me. I'd rather live and enjoy myself when I go out and not worry about dieting cause I know I'll get back to it when I can. The food now is fantastic compared to what it used to be, especially the frozen. I don't find much of anything I don't like. And if I do, I just don't order it again. If you are a picky eater to start with, well then, yah, you'll have a hard time with it. So far all I lost was 5 pounds, but its so amazing how different I feel.

I don't care what I look like. I care about how I feel! Bending over trying to put shoes on isn't a chore anymore with a fat belly in the way. Just want to say — this was the easiest, fastest way I ever tried to lose weight! Just as the commercial says "eat the food, lose the weight! As you diet, you begin to relearn how to eat, so I did not even need the transition info.

I still buy the shake because they are great mid-morning to squash hunger until lunch. And the payoff is amazing! I have received so many compliments and queries about the program, and I can't say enough good about it!! I'm 58 years old and 5'2". I have never been one to lose weight very fast and as such, I usually get discouraged and get the ol "I don't care" attitude.

Especially after losing quite a bit of weight and then struggling up and down with the same poundage for the past several years. But the convenience of NS has been a life changer for me as it gain me the extra something something I needed to stick it out. I have currently lost The nice thing about NS, if you don't like a item, just don't order it the next month. My husband says this is the first time he has seen me stick to something for this long. I've got about 30 pounds to go!

It's so good to hear from someone that knows the truth and isn't afraid to write it down! I have to try and be diplomatic when answering some of the worst complainers since this is my site. But it can be frustrating at times when you get people that really just don't get it that they're the ones with the problem, not the diet. Congrats on going into this with the right attitude and proving to the naysayers that it works It's always good to hear!

My mom did the Nutrisystem diet back in the late 80s, after giving birth to me a few years prior, and lost all of her baby weight. She did it for 3 months.

She told me that the first month was "okay" but that by the end of her 2nd month, she had lost almost all of her baby weight but also had so much more energy, which gave her the motivation to start running again.

I wish I could post a screen cap of her text saying this so people would know it's real lol. By the end of her 3rd month, she said she had lost ALL of her baby weight plus a few more pounds. She recommended it to me when I started talking about wanting to lose some weight, so we both decided to do it. She's been on it for a month and has lost 8 lbs. I've been on it for 3 weeks I started a week later so my bf and I could start together— I convinced him after I had already ordered with her , and I've lost 6 lbs.

I am 28 years old, 5'4" and was lbs when I started. This may not sound big at ALL to a lot of you, but trust me, if I wore a tight shirt and let's be honest, I'm 28 so I want to I have a VERY short upper torso so adding just a few tiny extra pounds shows up fast on me.

But I don't see any problem with wanting to look better as long as I'm doing it in a healthy manner I've been exercising and eating all the meals the way they tell you to, and I now weigh ish and feel awesome in both my work clothes and going-out clothes. An inch off my waist and a few less pounds is all I really needed and that's exactly what I got. I don't need to lose too much more weight so if the weight loss starts declining a little bit, for ME, that's actually a good thing.

Obviously, for some others, I can see why they might get frustrated. This diet isn't for everyone, but that's no reason to rag on it. They'd say things like "UGH It doesn't actually affect our ability to judge it as a whole. I can clearly see that this is exactly what's happening with the food from nutrisystem.

They might as well all be the same person writing a different review. Just listen to how they talk. Yes, the food from nutrisystem is more bland than a steak dinner from Outback oh dear GOD, i bet some of you are already thinking about how "terrible" Outback is instead of understanding my point And to those of you who say "No i'm not expecting gourmet, but I wouldn't even feed this to my dog" I know what point you're trying to make, but these foods are not THAT bad to where a dang dog who eats his own throw up wouldn't eat it.

Not even close, you overly picky eater. And nonetheless, there are starving people out there who would take a frozen salisbury steak without complaining. A point that should be more than taken into consideration!

I was eating Chick-Fil-A sandwiches and french fries before this diet, so yeah I felt the change in taste! But if I cared more about the taste of food than losing the weight which thousands and thousands of people have said they've lost the weight , then I'd still be unhappy with my weight! It's not SO bad to where I can't endure it for a better cause, which is looking and feeling better.

I will stay on nutrisystem for my 2nd month and see what happens after that. So sorry for this being so long but I had to say something because reading all the comments from complainers was the most aggravating thing I've seen in months. Hi June, congrats on your success! And getting into the right frame of mind comes from re-learning how to eat the right way so the body doesn't gain weight.

Once the mind has learned the right way to eat, the body does what it's told! I've been using the Nutrisystem diet plan since January of I've lost 48 pounds. I started at about pounds and I was a size 16 and today I'm about pounds and a size The plan works but the issue is that some people don't understand it's not just about the food.

It's about portion control and changing your lifestyle to eat more but smaller meals. I've done without their food for quite some time, although I will say that not starting with it wouldn't have worked. It's just that I prefer to cook my own chicken or fish and I'm cooking for two very hungry men.

I needed the food for a while to train myself as I lost my first 15 pounds. The portions get so much easier after the first few weeks and I found myself feeling uncomfortable if I cheated because my body was getting used to healthy eating. I'm in my 50s and this is the first time I have ever found something that worked for me. But all the focus here is on the food and I didn't think that was the biggest challenge. Thanks so much for the prompt reply! It's sometimes difficult to weed out the legit complaints so thanks for helping clear that up!

I agree completely that it's going to take a couple of months anyway to retrain your habits and see some results! I am so excited at the hopes of this working! I have enjoyed everything I've tried so far! I can't wait to continue! Thanks again so much for your time! Hey Kathi, The complaints about auto shipping revolve mostly around people who signed up for the first month and got the discount, then tried to cancel before the second shipment and got a nasty shock because they didn't read the information on the Nutrisystem homepage about their obligation.

If you intend signing up for more than one month, then you will have no problems canceling anytime after you have received at least 2 monthly shipments from the company.

There is a pretty obvious reason Nutrisystem are strict about early cancellation. They're giving a pretty big discount to attract customers to signup for auto-delivery because that way they sell at least a second month of food, which is better for business than just selling a single month's shipment. Most customers take the time to read the disclaimer and are aware of the obligation. So they either wave the discount and pay full price for the first month then can cancel anytime without penalty or they commit to at least two months and take the discount.

When you think about it it's sensible to do that because it usually takes at least two months to see real results from a diet and to train your body to get used to eating less food. Hope that answers your question. I know this post is rather old but I wondered if I might explore the complaint about NS Customer Service and cancelling autoship. Like many, I'm using NS to learn about portion control, moderation and healthy choices.

I've purchased several starter boxes at Walmart but I'd like to "join" for a few months to further my jump start and until I feel I'm ready to go it alone. I hesitate only because of what I've read about the autoship. I don't mind paying their prices at all, but when I'm ready to stop; I don't think anyone has the right to interfere with that decision.

Has anyone heard anything more recently on this subject? Thanks so much for this post Customer service was no help, trying to convince me to take another delivery, are you kidding me! I've had hormone tests and blood work done and nothing seems amiss so at this point it's a mystery — so now we're into a heatwave and nothing I own fits me anymore.

I am glad that so many women can find success with NS; unfortunately I have to keep searching for mine. I just started the 5 day trial.. I did purchase the D plan for diabetic because this is what was available at Walmart at the time.

The prepared foods makes it so much earier and as much as I have read horrible stories on the taste, I have to disagree.

Sure the muffin isn't fluffy and the foods are processed but they take the challenge out of calorie counting and preparing. I so far actually have not had anything I would call awful.

It's pretty darn good. Portions may be small but you eat all day on this plan. Also, keep in mind your great food and large portions is why you are now purchasing this product. Going into my 3rd day I recommend this product and will be purchasing more.

I also kicked my exercise routine into gear. The diet was easy and taught me how to budget my eating and to discipline myself so that I went on to lose another 10 lbs the next month without NS just by keeping my good habits and exercise. I stayed at my target weight for 8 months, but then I fell in love probably 'cause I looked so good: I've recommended it to friends and family and enjoyed watching their success.

Hey Lidia, I'm sorry it didn't work out for you. But its certainly not "a bunch of crap" as the thousands that managed to get on with just fine will testify to.

Oh boy, where do I start? It's a "D-I-E-T" so the portions are small. What else did you expect? My review clearly states you have the option of adding grocery items to the meals, but really it's not absolutely necessary. To lose weight, you must get into the trend of eating LESS! You simply cannot continue eating all you want and expect to become slim. That's not how it works! You are wrong about shipping. It is free when you pay full price for the plan, but if you take the discount then it is deducted from any refund if you cancel before taking delivery of at least two months worth of food.

That is also clearly stated. Customer service is great. I'm sorry if you had a bad experience, but did the the counselor "yell" or "pretty much yell"? There's a big difference. I'm guessing you're just venting your frustration here, so making it sound a whole load worse than it really was is normal for folks who didn't get what they wanted or expected.

I published your complaint in the spirit of fairness as everyone's entitled to their opinion. I had high hopes for this program and it's a bunch of crap. Meaning, in order to not stay hungry all day, you will have to add more foods other then veggies and fruits. They actually say you need 3 power fuels, 2 smart carbs, 4 servings of veggies and so on to feel full. Means you buying a ton of groceries on the side! In addition to low fat or fat free milk for cereal and everything has to be wheat, low fat or fat free, and if family doesn't eat that It adds up fast!

It's included in the cost which means you won't get it back if you return the food. I talked to a counselor before I quit and he pretty much yelled at me and said to add even MORE food to my diet!! I'm trying to lose weight not eat more! Then when I cancelled, the first rep was insanely rude and hung up on me, refused to tell me how to ship my food back to ensure a proper refund, and then hung up in my face.

It's a complicated diet and I don't need the rudeness or my bank acct drained. You said you your problem was "not eating enough" which might have most of the folks reading this thinking you were underweight to start with—and by eating more you'd naturally gain and not lose weight.

Maybe you could clear that part up so we can understand your personal situation better. Hey Suelesh I removed your email to preserve your privacy , A lot of the process for losing weight is mental as it is physical and those foods are a big problem for diabetics, but many still crave them.

To answer your question, according to Nutrisystem: These nutrients help your body digest glucose slowly, and this prevents spikes in blood sugar while keeping you satisfied. Both my husband and I did Nutrisystem for 2 months. I wanted to lose weight and he did it in solidarity — He lost 15 pounds and I can no longer fit into my jeans. Really, I am wider and a few pounds heavier than I was only 2 months ago.

Perhaps it's because my issue was not eating junk or over eating; Mine was not eating enough and I thought by spending the money on the food I would be more inclined to eat properly in regular intervals. I had, like all of us, seen those commercials where overweight women looked so amazing after doing Nutrisystem so you can imagine my dismay when my own body took a turn for the worse after trying it. I also stepped up my activity and had no problem with the food itself in terms of taste.

We live within walking distance of an organic produce store so we had lots of fresh stuff to dress the food up with. Good luck to those who give it a shot — it did not work for me, but that certainly doesn't mean it won't for you.

I just started on nutrisystem d,its not that bad,but I cant understand why they have cake, cookies and candy bars in it, can anyone tell me why? Hi Camilla, I'm so glad you're doing well on the diet and the gas problem was short-lived for you.

The way to real success with this program comes after you complete it and return to normal meals: You need to keep eating healthily and in small portions and never return to eating junk food or you'll just put all the weight back that you lost. You can do it, I'm sure! Hi, I'm on day 10 started with fast5 and lost 6 so far, so real pleased. I got gas on day 2 it lasted 2 days then vanished and hasnt come back.

I admit I was thinking on quitting if it hadnt of stopped when it did. I wasn't like the other commenter Cindy having home cooked food before. I ate a load of junk always Mcdonalds or pizza or takeout so my diet wasnt ever good. The food on Nutrisystem is pretty good so I was a bit shocked at the gas but now its gone, I'm real happy with the diet so far. I love the shakes! Hey Cindy, good to hear you and your husband are doing great with the weight coming off, but not so good to hear you have the gas problem that some folks get.

Is your husband getting the same problem? I hear of it happening when folks try Nutrisystem instead of eating healthy home cooked meals, so its likely down to the big adjustment the body needs to make with a very different menu it's not used to.

You're accustomed to healthy meals that I assume you cook with all fresh ingredients and now your eating processed foods—it's a big change in diet that can be problematic for some folks. If the problem persists I'd recommend you talk to customer support and even your doctor if the pain is bad.

I am on my 4th day of the fast 5. I have lost 2 lbs so far, my husband 7lbs. I understand that our metabolisms are different. Before NS I cooked very healthy, clean meals but portion size and eating too few meals a day left us both about 20 lbs over what we wanted to be. We both work out regularly so we felt that learning to eat tegular small meals would be worth a try. Now for my problem. I have been bloated and have horrible gas and sm extremely uncomfortable every hour if the day since starting NS.

Anyone have advice for me? I saw a response that said that the person was obviously not used to healthy food. Well that is absolutely not the case with me. I don't want to give up, but this is bad and even affects my sleep as I wake up in the early morning hours with heartburn. Thanks in advance for any thoughts or ideas you may have for me. Hey Tara, sorry it didn't work out for you. Actually, 5lbs in 3 weeks is pretty good considering experts agree the safe and preferred rate of weight loss is lbs per week.

You were well within that, but I guess you were expecting more. We all have different metabolisms and so lose weight at different rates so don't feel bad. If you bought the first month at a discount rate with auto-delivery, there is a charge for early cancellation which I point out in my review and its clearly explained in the terms on the Nutrisystem website home page.

It's not the fault of customer service which is generally pretty good. I did not lose much weight on Nutrisystem- Only 5 lbs in 3 weeks.

I will never go back to them no matter how desperate I get. Whatever the reason, I was convinced it was what I needed. During my research, I found a lot of positive reviews about Nutrisystem, and I knew it was time to give it a try! My family and I. I was able to lose 30 pounds with Nutrisystem, and have been able to keep it off by making simple lifestyle changes. It was affordable, convenient, tons of people reported great results online, and they guaranteed the weight loss.

After doing a little research, I decided it was right for me and decided to sign up. I was probably around pounds when I finally decided to jump on the bandwagon, and my weight was going nowhere but up at that point. Nowadays, I try to stay as close to as possible, and I am usually able to maintain that goal, give or take a pound or two. That being said, I still utilize diets like Nutrisystem from time-to-time, when I feel like I need a re-charge, or to quickly burn off some extra weight.

After reaching my goal, I transitioned to a plan that includes their Turbo Shakes, healthy foods that I prepare on my own, and a regular exercise routine. While their Basic plan worked for me for me, they have several options to choose from. The big takeaway here: Pick a plan that fits your budget and dietary needs they have specialty plans for vegetarians and diabetics , and know that ALL of their plans are going to help you lose weight when used correctly.

There is a ton of variety, the meals are quick and easy to make, and they even have frozen options that take the quality up another notch. You can view their full menu at the official Nutrisystem website. Ultimately, I wanted to make a goal of losing about 10 pounds per month. For me, this was very doable following their diet plan.

The results are going to be different for everyone, but if you have 20, 30 lbs, or more to lose, then I would expect to be on the diet for at least two months. In my case, once I reached my weight loss goal, I had established a routine for how much I needed to eat each day, so I was comfortable developing a plan of my own.

As someone who has lost more than 30 pounds using the Nutrisystem program, I can tell you that it absolutely works. I highly recommend it to anyone who has 10 or pounds to lose. Nutrisystem Turbo 13 is one of the most effective ways to lose weight, and is a great fit for anyone who wants an easy plan to follow.

I've used their plan now several times over the years, and it's one of our highest rated weight loss products here on the site. I really liked your story. I am in day 2 of my Turbo Program. My history with NS is in I had my 3rd child, 12 months and one day after my 2nd. My weight on delivery date was My normal weight was I went down to Lowest in my life, and I felt good. I did feel healthier at which I managed to maintain for 20 something years. In 3 years I graduated a size I weighed when I graduated.

I still weigh 10 years later and feel awful. I too started to eat out and drink wine. I only hope I have the will power to succeed this time. I feel I have to become a hermit and say no to going out with my friends, neighbors and family.

But now I am older and I dread the fact it may take me years to lose all this fat. But I have only myself to blame. Reading your story has given me some inspiration.

I am going to make 10 weight loss increments only as to not get discouraged. Thank you for sharing your story. Hi Cheryl- Thanks for reading, and sharing…What an inspiring story! I still have a drink occasionally, but try to keep it limited to social gatherings and not an everyday thing. In any case, best of luck with your weight loss journey! Norman, you seem to know the NS diet very well. I have been on this diet around 7 years ago and I see a few new changes this time. My order has arrived and I unpacked my Turbo Box yet did not keep that food separate, and now i am really unsure of what was in it for my first week….

Best of luck with the program. Hope that helps -NS. You want to be at your goal weight then, not wishing you did something about it yrs ago. No, you cannot pound them back, but I am not sure why you would want to anyway. Co-workers always ask me to go out for a drink and they order whatever and I order a diet coke. You could blame it on medication if you want. When I go out to eat or go to cookouts, etc.

I order a meat and a vegetable with a diet soda. No potato or anything. At a cookout it would be a burger or chicken with no bread, and a tossed salad or veggie. You CAN do it. You just have to order carefully. I wish you luck. You can do, I know you can. It is so nice to read a positive article about Nutrisystem. You are so right about your body becoming used to the smaller portions.

Like anything, your body goes through an adjustment period, but after a few days, it is quite easy. With frequent snacks between meals, as well as plenty of fluids, you are eating pretty much whenever you feel hungry. Hi, thanks for the great review! Thanks for the nice comment: Excited to hear how Nutrisystem goes for you — let us know! Hi Ellen — You definitely need to talk with your doctor before trying Nutrisystem or any weight loss plan with your health issues, but they do offer a plan for people with diabetes.

I would recommend checking out their site to learn more about the different plans they offer. They also offer snacks and shakes as options over the course of the day, so that helps with the extra cravings too. Hope that helps, and best of luck with your weight loss journey! Someone in my Myspace group shared this website with us so I came to give it a look. Exceptional blog and brilliant design and style. Thanks for the kind words and for visiting the site — let me know your Twitter handle so I can return the favor!

Those first 2 weeks i dropped 13 lbs, but that third week i lost maybe 1 lb. I was only eating the provided meals the first two weeks usually around only calories per day obviously that was unhealthy, so i added in a few snacks to put me right around calories per day.

But unfortunately that has resulted in minimal weight loss. Did you have plateaus like this? And how did you over come these stalls? I did just purchase an elliptical and also a stationary bike, but only on day 2 with those. Your review was wonderful and very well written, so thank you!

Hi Julie- Thank you so much for sharing your story, and way to go for making it through your first month!

I think the calorie restriction is the hardest part about Nutrisystem, and why now I typically only do the diet for a month or two and then really focus on just eating right and getting enough exercise after that. For me, the approach after Nutrisystem has been intermittent fasting IF. That said, I have had a lot of success with it, and find that I can maintain a healthy weight for long stretches of time when using it. I started with the turbo charge and continued now for almost 3 weeks. I have only lost 3 lbs.

When I emailed a counselor they said that was normal and I was doing well. Big hope very disappointed. In any case, hope the rest of your month goes well, and best of luck moving forward. I just started Nutrisystem. I always lost weight on the low carb diet when I was younger. But the fat intake was not good. Just to avoid all the carbs… Did you or anyone else have a issue with how many carbs are in each meal? Is this ok lol… Please someone assure me all the carbs are ok! Thanks for visting, and best of luck with your first month!

Thanks for the excellent review and videos. Excited to see what kind of progress I can make. Hi Krystal — thanks for visiting the site, and taking the time to read my review and watch the videos. Always happy to hear that it helped! Thanks for the great info and for sharing your story!

Thanks for the kind words, June! Congrats on taking the first step and best of luck with Nutrisystem — hope it goes well! I mastered more new things on this fat reduction issue. An enormous reduction in junk food, sugary foods, fried foods, sugary foods, beef, and white flour products may perhaps be necessary. Holding wastes unwanted organisms, and wastes may prevent ambitions for fat-loss.

While specific drugs for the short term solve the situation, the unpleasant side effects are certainly not worth it, plus they never present more than a short-term solution. Many thanks sharing your thinking on this weblog. Thanks for the input Saul. Have you ever considered creating an ebook or guest authoring about Nutrisystem on other sites?

I know my readers would appreciate your work. If you are even remotely interested, feel free to send me an email. Hi Lance — I actually do have an eBook in the works, so stay tuned for that! I lost a grand total of 5. This week I think I want to add my fitness video at least 3 times…maybe 5…or at least add an extra walk everyday. Check out the videos on YouTube. Great job this week! That is a lot of weight that you lost!

All of the Nutrisystem food you ate looked pretty good. I hope you have a successful week 2. I thought it came in one week 2. I guess I can add veggies to the dinner meals. I was skeptical too, until I tried it. You did a great review. I have been messing with nutrisystem for over three years.. Unfortunately I work at two jobs that both have unlimited free food, and i have stopped exercising..

I have blown up to about 70 pounds heavier than my nutrisystem lightest weight of …. I feel like I am going in the right direction and tomorrow I start with the hour of cardio again…great job on your weight loss so far but if you lost 5. Nutrisystem works and it works fast, and once you get going and see results.. Does anyone know which foods to eat in the first 7 days that comein the turbo take off box i got them mixed up please help.
