Video of the Day
I have lost 10 lbs. I am going to make 10 weight loss increments only as to not get discouraged. Cheaper than in Nutrisystem! Wish I could add "malted" mix. Plus, they show you the exact system to follow to reach your weight loss goals — follow the plan they send, and you will lose weight.
What Is Weight Watchers?
If you prefer, you can accept the default menu that Nutrisystem suggests when you sign up for the program. Medifast and Nutrisystem require you to purchase other foods in addition to the diet products. The Medifast Lean and Green Meal includes 6 to 8 ounces of lean protein, vegetables and up to two servings of healthy fats.
You can also have two small servings of low-calorie condiments each day. On Nutrisystem, you eat healthy foods from the grocery store to supplement your Nutrisystem meals and snacks. You can have fruits, vegetables, healthy carbohydrates, reduced fat dairy and lean protein. Both Medifast and Nutrisystem offer options for men, women, people with diabetes, older adults and vegetarians.
If you do not have as much weight to lose, Nutrisystem might be a better choice because it offers a slower rate of weight loss that agrees with recommendations in the Dietary Guidelines from the U. The only source of carbohydrate was the pomegranate juice with Keto1 for a total of 57 grams of carbohydrate daily. I don't have a ketone meter, but this product is by far the tastiest exogenous ketones I have ever had! I have had all brands zhou, perfect keto, etc..
I use it twice a day, one scoop before workouts in the morning, I fast until around 2pm in the afternoon, and it keeps the hunger pains away. I usually will have a second scoop before dinner too. I have noticed major differences in my body fat, my mood and my mental clarity ever since I switched to the keto diet.
This is a drink that kickstarts you into ketogenesis where you begin to use body fat as fuel rather than carbs.
It's not for everyone, some would find it difficult to sustain for months or years on end. I have been at it for a month and week now and my body fat has decreased from double to single digits and I am continuing to add lean muscle mass from a diet high in protein and fats.
Tastes kinda different at first but not bad, you get used to it. Update, June 16, This stuff is an amazing tool. I don't know if it's directly responsible for my success, but it IS working like it says it should. It says to use 2 tbs per shake for "essential fatty acids". I usually don't and that cuts a lot of calories.
But the olive oil adds a wonderful smoothness to the shake. The graininess practically disappeared. Be sure to use a light tasting olive oil. I haven't actually done the 3-a-day plan yet. When I do, I'll probably use the oil. That would put your calories for the shakes at about a day. Good to not dip too far below that.
At first, I was "worried" about not eating solids. I thought I would be hungry. Use if your love affair with food is over This product works. It works especially well if your battle with food is due to poor choices and high caloric intake.
I used the three shakes per day for three days to start and found the first day the most difficult. The taste is gritty but not unbearably so. I had to deal with my constant thoughts of eating by distracting myself with other tasks. By the third day I did not feel deprived and felt confident continuing forward with the plan.
I started on June 3 and after 23 days I have lost 25 pounds. I noticed a change in my energy level and also some much needed room in my waistband. I have switched to healthy snacks like almonds, cashews and fresh fruit. I make sure I eat fresh vegetables in some form each day and rarely have bread, but when I do it is whole grain. It Does Work Been on the diet for 2 weeks now.
I did the 3 shakes per day for 4 days then I changed to 2 shakes per day and 1 meal. I really do not follow to the letter on the weekends. I am better with this during the week while at work. Drink does take a bit to get used to but now I look forward to it. I do a shake at home in the morning and one at lunch at work. I drink the vegetable broth Seitenbacher Vegetable Broth and Seasoning bought from Amazon twice a day in between the shakes.
My recipe is the same each time and it works for me. I mix 5 to 6 tablespoons to oz of water in a shaker bottle with crushed ice. Easy to stay on shakes - 20 days, 13 lbs. After a friend lost 65 lbs and has kept it off for 3 years, I decided to give this a try.
Pleasantly surprised at how easy it's been to stay on it for 20 days, losing 13 lbs. No meal-time decisions make it easy to plan my day and make sure I'll have something before I get hungry and need to rely on willpower.
Looking forward to being at my goal weight by the end of summer - down 55 lbs. I'm 60 years young and not into exercise, so watching the numbers on the scale go down is quite exciting for me.
Delicious and Effective I learned about HMR through Peacehealth Hospital and i wanted to try the products on my own to determine if I needed to pay hundreds of dollars a week for the program.
Sure the shakes are kind of expensive but i used to get Starbucks every morning and see this as a fair trade off. Doesn't taste chemical or like something diet I worked for HMR through local hospital and knew this to be a great supplement. I use it for a meal a day to lose weight. Needs a stick mixer to stir up well. I put it in the blender for 15 seconds with 8 oz water and 15 ice cubes - great, almost as good as a chocolate shake.
Add a tsp of instant coffee and you get mocho. Wish I could add "malted" mix. I use this power in my coffee in the mornings. It has replaced all my sugar and cream. One scoop in a large cup of coffee is just right. In comparison, my regular coffee with cream and sugar is 14 grams of carbs and calories.
Tastes great, lots of wakeup power, tastes like a mocha chocolate and coffee flavors First of all this is the king of shaker drinks if you work overnights like I do. It will give you the jitters though if you drink it too fast. I got this as a snack as I have some pretty long shifts and rather not intake a ton of extra calories. So something caffeinated, containing coffee, and that tastes good along with filling you up a bit is a big bonus. I would recommend it for sure.
I basically butcher both coffee and my body by adding in hundreds of empty calories. Rather than go out each morning and buy specialty coffee which tastes good and has fewer calories than my ungodly homebrew , I decided to give Click Coffee Protein a shot.
However, I soon realized Click Coffee was actually a way better deal. First, you don't really need a whole 2 scoops per serving. If you only have a scoop a day, you can easily make a container last close to a month.
Works for me and it tastes great. When it comes to weight loss, there is no magic potion that will cause you to lose weight. But when I took Herbalife I lost 45lbs in 4 months. Herbalife really does curb your hunger. This is just a personal account of my own experience that I should get out there. But it certainly worked for me.
So far I've only tried it mixed in with water so I don't have to deal with the extra calories that come along with milk. Even with water it tastes VERY good. So refreshing and doesn't have a protein shake or your standard meal replacement flavor. Alot of the other flavors have 9 grams of sugar but this has only 5 for two scoops. Unofrtunately, this is only a seasonal flavor, while supplies last.
And that really sucks, because it is that good. Luckily, not too many people know about this flavor so there's still a big chance to buy some more of the Mint Chocolate. I so cannot wait to have this again, which will be for dinner when I have a nutritious lunch. Then this is perfect. A minty chocolate that --amazing--goes pretty well with pretty much any smoothie vegetables, avocadoes, etc.
I wish the product was totally organic, but then for the occasional change it's great and tasty. Like my brand this one is an 8oz bottle and I regularly purchase this product on request for a family member who drinks bottles a day. There are many other drink products available but this particular one is the Only one that is requested and it must be the Rich Chocolate Royale flavor.
The local supermarket does carry this flavor but only has limited supplies and it sells out fast. I even had the store manager order me special case orders but still many of times there are out of stock issues.
I drink another brand only because my doctor suggested for me but did try this one and have to agree the taste of a rich dark chocolate is present.
Like my brand this one is an 11oz bottle and goes down quickly. We use a smaller diameter straws to drink from which gives the impression that the drink last longer. Great Flavor This is the only flavor I will drink and its hard to find in stores anymore!! I replace my morning coffee and breakfast all in one bottle!!
Btw Ive lost 40 pounds with these shakes and vigorous exercise since Nov !! I've been buying this for years and love it for a quick meal I don't know what was changed with the Slim Fast Cappuccino Delight. The bottle is different, and the taste is different. In fact there is little flavor at all.
It's almost like drinking water. It's always been good in the past, but something has changed and not for the better. It's a lot of money for something with no taste. I hope next time I will get the previous version. It arrived a couple days after i ordered it. I got the vanilla, as i figured i could always add unsweetened cocoa powder to it, if i wanted chocolate.
I use it as my breakfast alternative. The taste is great, and it doesn't taste overly, chalky. I add half a banana, a handful of blueberries, a tablespoon or two of yogurt depending on how thick and creamy you want your smoothie , a handful or two of cubed ice, and a teaspoon or tablespoon of unsweetened cocoa powder depends on how chocolatey you want. Blend good, and voila! I only gave 4 stars; because i thought this would keep me a little fuller, until after lunch.
I still think Nutrisystem is fairly priced, and is an excellent resource for people looking to lose weight quickly.
You will get results when following their plan, which is why it can be a great option for a lot of people who have a significant amount of weight to lose. For me, it has been a good way to reset after weight gain, and then I can go back to focusing on eating healthy and preparing meals on my own, sort of like you plan to do.
In any case, hope your month went well, and best of luck with your weight loss journey. You have made some good points, and the pricing info is well-detailed. Thanks Carla, happy to hear you found the information useful — if you decide to try Nutrisystem, I hope it goes well! Thanks for the pricing info.
Has anyone else been able to do this? Hi Cindy — Thanks for visiting, and happy to hear the pricing info helped! I think 5 to 10 pounds is totally doable, especially if you commit to the full 2 months! Remember, Nutrisystem does offer counselors to help keep you on track, and as long as you stick to the program, you should see a significant amount of weight loss during that time period! That has definitely been a key to success for me over the years. In any case, best of luck — let us know how it goes!
I was pretty pleased to find this web site and your cost breakdown is very detailed. Thanks for all of the information — it makes my decision a lot easier. Hopefully can report back with some great results. Thanks for all of the information. Makes my decision a lot easier knowing exactly what things are going to cost! Need to loose about 59 pounds.
Thank you for the sensible critique and cost info. Mostly fish and vegetables. Sometimes chicken or turkey but not all the time!
Is there a plan to start me on this regiment? Can you send some ideas and pricing plans? I tried turbo shakes with other companies and they gave me lots of gas…lol Thanks if this gets to you. Hi Jim — sorry, I missed this comment at the time you posted it. I would also recommend looking at BistroMD https: Diet-to-Go has some really good plans that sound like they could work for you.
Both are going to be a bit more pricey than Nutrisystem, but sound like they could be a better fit. My husband and I are considering NS. We also do not want to purchase ANY other food if possible. Hi Lynn — I replied to Ray with a couple of other options BistroMD and Diet-to-Go …I would recommend checking out those reviews if you think they may be something that would work for you and your husband.
There are definitely some ways to keep the costs down though. You will definitely want to incorporate fresh produce, though, as I think you would get tired of only eating their pre-made meals, and you will want to mix in a salad or something on most days just to get the health benefits from the fresh produce if nothing else.
Hi Pete — the frozen food is an additional charge, but can be included in your 4-week order or as an ala carte item. Many are on a fixed income and I am one of them … an older woman, a widow, and on a very fixed income. With the profit your company surely must realize, might you consider offering your program free to a few deserving people men and women who would benefit from it as well?
Just something you might consider … it just might be of benefit to your company in another way … good will! The Costco purchased gift cards can definitely be used and there is a space at checkout to put them in. You will just have to make sure you put the gift card in a few days before the processing date for additional deliveries.
I just went through this whole process and received my order today. Thanks for the very thorough cost information. Helped make my decision a lot easier. I agree, too, the frozen meals are definitely a nice bonus — especially the desserts!
There are some costs with buying your own fruits or vegetables to consider too, but overall it seems fairly affordable. Anyways, thanks for the detailed pricing breakdown, really appreciate it. Is it organic or are there a lot of preservatives in It.
