Nutrisystem Review: The Good, The Bad & The Hangry
You have a lot of good info here. I can buy my clothes from the Junior department. My husband continued complementing me on how good I look and how proud he is of me. I tried Nutrisystem and found out I am allergic. I have lost 7. I had lost a total of 15 lbs now and lost 2 inches off my waist. I even referred you to my sister and brother in law— who both signed up.
What is Nutrisystem?
It contains clinically researched ingredients, which we like. The program can achieve this by providing portion control, reduced fat, and fewer calories.

It is fairly good though and I lost 30 lbs. Just need to get back on it and lose some more. OH, also, my colesterol dropped to normal on this plan. I stayed on the program for quite a few months. Lost weight right away then leveled off. Just a main dish. The packaging caused some items to be damaged in shipping. You have to call in to cancel the automatic shipments. Can not cancel on the website. For detailed product ingredients please refer to the official nutrisystem website or product label for more information.
I have high blood pressure and am on two meds, I think I going to have to layoff ns. For product ordering inquiries, please refer to the nutrisystem official website for more information.
I and my husband started it a week ago! He has lost 8lbs. We, too have two full months on it and the meals most of them are great……Hang in there and good luck to you all……. I have lost 43 lbs and plan on staying with the plan untill i loose lbs total.
I was on this deit back 10 years ago. I am a type 2 diabetic and it helped me get my blood sugars under control.
I am ready to get back on this diet and I plan to get back into the readings on my blood sugars. I plan to receive my first month supply on Monday. You will loose your desired wieght just stick to it no matter what!. For product inquiries please refer to the nutrisystem official website for more information. I used Nutrisystem for two months and lost 40 pounds.
It worked for me and will use it again if I need too. My brother and I both bought it and threw it out. No wonder people lose weight. Wonder if their spokespeople get better food than ordinary people do. I am about to go on the diet, worried about all the money. Tell me some encouraging stories. Me and my buddy did the diet! He lost 70 lbs! I lost 30 lbs in about 6 wks! I was not even that big! Though I did excercise every day!
This weight has come off effortlessly with just daily walks through my neighborhood. You do have to do some sort of exercise. Do they taste like ones bought from Duncan Donuts?? I know of 2 other people who tried NS and had amazing results, I was at the end of my rope and was feeling desperate to lose the weight. My old habits are now broken and I feel awesome. As far as the money, sure it sounds like alot. So good luck to, stick with it and you will lose! I was wondering how you work the nutrisystem into your schedule.
I work 10p-8am Thur thru Sun with Mon-Wed off. Thank you in advance if you or anyone can provide any assistance. Make sure you customize your meals. Hi, yes I tried nutrisystem. Beef does not tast like that, Hey, wheres the cat!! Foods are good enough for me, most of them. And I have been finding creative ways to augment entrees while keeping within the program.
Folks complain about price. If I want to switch to other NS programs I can. I keep my food logs and use the tools as needed. I am proactive instead of sitting around waiting for something to happen.
People can bad mouth NS all they want, not going to change my plan unless it harms me physically. Wonder if there is a better option, jenny craig weight watchers? For more information, see our full Advertising Disclosure.
Overview Ingredients Does It Work? Thank you so much for your review and sharing your story. We are so happy to hear how well the program is working for you. Remember to use those unlimited non-starchy veggies. They can be a big help with hunger especially in your first couple weeks on the plan. You can also reach out to a counselor at press option two. They would be happy to go over more tips if needed.
Please let us know if there is anything else we can do for you. Hope you have a wonderful day and congrats on your weight loss! Tomorrow is my last day on turbo take off. I was advised earlier this week to call back toward the end of my first week to speak with a counselor. If I could speak with William every time I called that would be fantastic.
Thank you so much for your review. We are so happy to hear you were pleased with your experience when speaking with William. Hope you have a wonderful day and welcome to the program!
I would like to say for the first couple of days I found this a bit difficult but only because it was such a lifestyle change for me.
Now I love it. I have lost 7. No longer on blood pressure pills and I have more energy. Thank you so much for making my life happier. Thanks so much for sharing your review with us today. Congratulations on your success so far on the plan! We're happy to hear that you are finding the plan easy to follow.
If you ever have any questions, please let us know. The most important thing for me is that it is working. On the road to lose 80 lbs. I've lost 28 after only 6 weeks. The food is not fine dining but it is good enough and with enough variety to not be boring. Some of the food is quite tasty and others only rate around good but, for me, that is not the point.
The point is that now most of the time I am not hungry and I am losing weight without having to make major alterations to my life. Surely, there are times when I just want to get a pizza delivered and munch out but Nutrisystem provides ways to deal with that. I'm not going to blow smoke, some self-control will be required.
The few times I have some real cravings, I just pull up the weight chart and see that nice downward trend of weight and remind myself why I am doing this. The quick start program, for me, was the most difficult portion to get through but it surely did as it described. My weight loss started quickly and tapered a bit, as expected, once I got on the regular weekly plan.
I am still losing around 3 to 4 lbs a week which might be a little atypical but I'm not complaining. This meal plan was exactly what I needed.
Previously I ate healthy but I just ate too much. Comparing then to now, I realized I was eating roughly double what I should have been. So not only has this plan allowed me to lose weight but it has provided me with an idea of what meal sizes should be if I ever decide to stop with Nutrisystem. I personally think the frozen meals are a very good add-on as they provide more variety and tend to be a bit more tasty and satisfying.
I really do appreciate that this program exists. I just turned 50 not too long ago and was starting to have more concerns about my weight which has always been above 'normal'. Nutrisystem not only seems to be dealing with my weight but it also helped me ease my mind about my future health. I'm also a workaholic which means that previous diets I tried had, what I feel was, a significant impact on my lifestyle. Which is probably the main reason they all failed.
Nutrisystem is very simple. Take their base plan, modify the meal times to fit your current schedule, keep the intervals between meals roughly the same, and in no time it just becomes part of your day.
The food for the most part is portable as well which is rather convenient. Again, Thank You for providing this product. Before I was skeptical about ever seeing what I consider a healthy weight but this product and changed that skepticism into hope and has provided exactly what the proverbial doctor ordered.
Plastic found in a dinner entree. It was very nice to see! I can't remember when this happened, maybe weeks ago. I thought the response took longer than it should have. Really tho', I've had great customer service every time I needed them.
Wait times when phoning are awful. I am very happy with the 30 pounds that I have lost. I love your food and do not want to totally stop my program. I am working with adjusting to everyday food lifestyle. But yet, I do not want to give up my program. I believe this will keep me on track with keeping my weight under control.
Thank you for my delays in my order. I tried Nutrisystem and found out I am allergic. I tried returning the items as they indicated there was a full refund policy, and they told me I couldn't. I called over seven times during the next 30 days and they were not cooperative or helpful at all.
I got transferred around many times, and never had any help at all. I ended up moving, and canceled my card. Two months after that they tried charging my credit card and claim they shipped product, which I didn't order. I never received product because I had moved. Very poor customer service! They try and snag you in and force you to keep buying, even if you don't like the product and even if you are allergic to it! I have told a lot of people about this horrifying experience and they are all appalled and said there are much better programs out there!
We are sorry to hear that you are unable to eat our food and we apologize for the poor service you've received. We will be looking into this and reaching out soon. I have spoken with Chanta in her role as counselor. I was impressed with the interest and patience she posses. I am now able to form a more comprehensive plan moving forward with my required personal participation with the Nutrisystem to reach my weight loss goal.
I am enthusiastically encouraged with my decision to take on this venture for my future. We are so happy to hear that Chanta was able to help you gain a better understanding of the program!
For more information about reviews on ConsumerAffairs. My NuMi bottle issue was already taken care of. He therefore missed the window to order the bottle in time for the 2nd month shipment. We would like to have it delivered with the order that is coming up for the 3rd month - we get auto delivery, so it is already set up.
We are happy to hear that your water bottle issue has been handled but are sad to hear that your husband is still having issues. We will be assigning this to a member of the Consumer Experience Team who will be reaching out soon.
I am very disappointed with the food. Most of it tastes the same to me and actually upsets my stomach. I did not realize I only had two weeks to cancel and much of that was mostly drinks. Then you keep trying different food thinking something will be edible.
I know there is plenty of fine print in contracts that should be read. I do not recall being verbally told about these conditions. This was a lesson that left a very bad taste in my mouth. We are sorry that the foods upset your stomach and that you were unaware of the auto-delivery nature of the program.
Not clear when I ordered that it would be on automatic order. Food is not good, not good instructions, dinners were bland. Too many entrees with spicy tomato sauce and cheese, dinners are bland.
Shakes made me sick. Emails were only to sell more. Thank you for writing this review. We are sad to hear the foods were not to your liking and that the deliveries would be automatic.
We will be looking into your account and reaching out soon. This is a follow-up to the review I posted on September 5. Soon after I posted my first review, a rep from Nutrisystem contacted me via email. The email was courteous, professional, and apologetic for the experience I had.
The rep went on to offer replacement of the damaged food items I had received and encouraged me to give their company another try. In light of this swift response and their sincere desire to ensure that I was happy with their product and service, I am revising my review. I accepted a ready-made menu that containing some items that I did not enjoy.
In the future, I will make a point to select food items that I now know to be more to my liking than others. I am very pleased and heartened by Nutrisystem's timely reply and concern for my purchase. They deserve a second chance. I ordered my month's supply of diet food from Nutrisystem with high hopes.
The key, really, is portion control and ingredients. I hope this helps if you are considering Nutrisystem. Definitely pick your own foods and go for the frozen meals as well because so many of them are good! As a member of the Nutrisystem Nation Blogger Program, I am receiving free membership to the program in exchange for blog posts. All opinions are as always still my own! Thanks to Nutrisystem for the opportunity!
Invaluable analysis , I Appreciate the facts. Does anyone know if my company would be able to obtain a sample a form form to fill in?
Starting to do some research on Nutrisystem to decide if I want to try it. Thanks for your insight, suggestions and enthusiasm. Congrats on your success and I look forward to reading more! I already shared my favorite Nutrisystem foods to order and they really are good.
I can stick most of them in my purse. Where I run […].
