What is Nutrisystem?
I used one of these each month to supplement my Nutrisystem order. Though I did excercise every day! You can also reach out to a counselor at press option two. Does Nutrisystem Work Long Term? We are happy to hear that you feel like you understand the program better after speaking with one of our counselors. Thanks for the kind words, June!
Final Nutrisystem Review
From all I heard and saw, it appeared that Nutrisystem would be the perfect diet for me. I had to lose about ten pounds after a rather sedentary period in which I packed on some weight. Nutrisystem seemed to be the answer. First, I hate to cook, so one month's set of prepacked meals delivered to my door sounded great. Also I was able to select my food choices from a wide variety of foods. So how come Nutrisystem didn't work for me?
I personally am unable to eat the same types of food for an extended period of time. The choices, although there are many, simply became boring after a while. One finds themselves looking to eat something Unfortunately, often times I did find something else.
The occasional slice of pizza instead of the prepackaged meal and so forth. Soon I was rarely eating the prepacakged meals at all.
I realized that I had totally abandoned the plan when I saw a large quantity of unopened Nutrisystem meals in my freezer way past the time I should have eaten them. Simply put, Nutrisystem made me feel like I was denying myself. And as we all know, one can never succeed on a diet that is denial based. I am sure that Nutrysystem would work for others. For me it was not the answer and turned out to be a waste of money. Not all was lost though, because at least I learned what type of diet would be best for me.
Just click on the image of the book At some point I had so much food and was so discouraged that I ended the shipments. If someone has a small amount of weight to lose then the program might work really well. I think I just felt defeated from the start. It has provided me with ideas on what to have for meals and now I do my own cooking. It also made me wonder how effective it was if you had to constantly microwave everything.
Something I could not handle. Not to mention how expensive it is. You could probably do it on your own for a lot cheaper if you know what to look for. A good start is adding more fruits and vegetables to your diet followed by drinking water frequently throughout the day. While at the same time adding fiber and good fats like nuts and olive oil and doing at least 30 minutes of some sort of exercise a day.
But it all comes down to one vital thing which is portion sizes. Learning to control the amount you eat can make a significant difference in the long run. If I could afford Nutrisystem and with the hefty cost, I definitely cannot , I would try it. My mom lost forty pounds so I know it works. She also said the food was really tasty — some were not, but she liked the majority.
The best part is that everything is planned out. The key, as is with any weight loss program, is sticking with it. Most plans tend to work when you follow them. Like Lynda, I love that everything is planned out already…there is no calorie counting or anything involved.
It seems like it would be easier to stick to a plan if all you can eat is already provided for you. If you really want to try it like I do ; save a little bit of money and go for it.
The food may be prepackaged but compared to the high sodium meals you get when you eat out or junk you buy in the grocery store, it is healthy! I was on it for 2 weeks and lost 10lbs.
I want to lose and hope it will help me. I am not just going to dream about it but actually do it. I signed up for the Nutri System program. I will post my results and opinions once my food arrives and I begin the program. Who wrote this review?
Your body stops digesting the first meal when you start eating the next meal? What kind of psudo-science is that? And, microwaving food kills its nutrients? What fake news website did you get that nugget off of? As for the cost… if you are someone who is overweight, as I was, you likely spend a TON on money eating out, eating fast food, or a ton of money on overpriced processed food and snacks from the grocery store.
For me, I ate out almost every meal. I am saving money. Yes, you do need to suppliment your Nutrisystem diet with some fresh vegetables from the store. Fresh lettuce, green beans, peppers — whatever it is you choose is not all too expensive. But besides all that, you are paying for a service. If you offset the cost you normally pay for a month of food — whatever extra you are paying for Nutrisystem above that is the price you pay for a service. But if you need help — like I did — then pay for that service.
Yes they charge more to not autoship a plan. Again, they are providing a service. If you are willing to commit to two months and have them autoship, they know they have a longer term customer and will give you a discount. Personally I see nothing wrong with that. The prices are all laid out on their website when you order. Different price level and discounts for committing to the two months and auto ship.
The food is good. It is not a five star resturant quality meal. They never claim that it is. But its decently good, some very good. That is all personal preference. As for the diet. I never felt hungry. And I used to be able to put away huge portions of food. If you get a hunger pang you cal always eat as much vegetables as you want. I keep carrot sticks, sugar snap peas, sliced green and red bell peppers on hand and munch on them. If you follow the plan it works.
