Does Nutrisystem Diet Work? My Review – My Story

Thank you for changing my life! Just wanted to say thanks. I've been overweight for about 15 years. I've tried exercise plans and low-carb dieting, miracle pills, shake meal plans, nutrisystem, portion control, etc Of course nothing worked-and if it did 10 lbs max , the weight never stayed off. I had to dig up a before pic because I didn't take one. I honestly didn't think this program would work.

I'm down 40 pounds and maintaining finally-using the hcg protocol and your drops. I never had time to go to the gym so I decided to buy HCG diet drops. The first month I lost 32 pounds! I decided to do it for 2 more months and lost another 43 pounds! I have gained my confidence back and feel amazing.

I would strongly recommend trying HCG diet drops, you will see great results! We founded Nutra Pure HCG in and we our entering our 8th year of offering the only diet product you will ever need.

Homeopathic remedies are not well understood by consumers in the US but they are very commonplace in Europe. We learned about homeopathy in when we used this particular homeopathic product to lose weight ourselves.

My wife lost 60 lbs. She was a bit more dedicated than me and I could have lost more weight. It was after our own personal weight loss experience that we teamed up with Dr. DL Hansen, the physician who formulated our unique brand of HCG, and began offering this great product exclusively on our website. As you read more about the Nutra Pure product you will easily see and understand the scientific basis for its effectiveness and unique qualities of our brand. Be sure to read the next two articles to learn more about Nutra Pure and to view our Quick Start Guide: Always seek the advice of a physician or other qualified health provider with any questions you may have regarding a medical condition.

Berg Nutritionals and Dr. In ketosis, glucose is not being used by the brain so it goes directly to your muscles. Due to the minimal amount of carbs consumed, some of the protein you consume is converted to glycogen via gluconeogenesis.

We will assume for the following discussion that liver glycogen has been depleted, ketosis established, and that the only source of glucose is from endogenous fuel stores i. The kidney also produces glucose as starvation proceeds. Note that athletes, even on a low carbohydrate diet, your body accumulates some glycogen from protein molecules, and they use it when they exercise and then rebuilt it the next day or two.

On test day, athletes ran for 3 hours. They then pieced everything together to better understand what each group was burning for fuel, and how hard they had to work. In one study, looking at well-trained cyclists, the rate of glycogen used by keto dieters was cut by a factor of 4. The study took bits of muscle out of their thigh muscles and measured muscle and measured glycogen before and after.

On the same duration of riding and the same intensity, their rate of glycogen use was one-fourth as much. Mike Davis — took a couple of racing sled dogs up in the Yukon and raced them miles a day for five days in a row.

They did a half Iditarod distance, going around the same mile loop every day for five days in a row. He fed the dogs a high fat, moderate protein, low carb diet. He measured muscle glycogen in the dogs before they started. At the end of five days, he did muscle biopsies on the dogs again. At the end of five days, they had more glycogen in their muscles than they did when they started. Their muscle cells were sucking up every little bit of what they could find and putting it right back in the muscle as glycogen.

And doing it much more efficiently than when they were fed a high carb diet. Rice, potatoes, sweet potatoes, pumpkin or other starchy vegetables are preferable — Proteoglycans are essential for forming cartilage and bone and are a combination of protein and glucose.

So starch and protein are essential for good bone formation. Remember to track everything! 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 just wanted to say that this post is awesome, well written and lots of useful Nutrisystem info.

Looking forward to my first shipment. Hi Corburt — Thanks for the kind words, and best of luck with your first month — hope it goes well! I just wanted to offer you a huge thumbs up for the great information you have right here on this post. I will be returning to your site for more soon! This blog looks exactly like my old one! Great choice of colors!
