Nutrisystem also shows me how to plan what to eat for the day. The F ood E xchange L ist has all the food groups and portion sizes for each individual food on the list. Hi Sam — Thanks for the positive feedback. I've been on it for over a year and only lost 45 pounds. The food with Nutrisystem tastes great. Thanks for your visit, Marsha. It actually made me gag and lose my appetite, which wasn't the diet plan I expected.

The results of the visit came as a shock, to say the least. It was the middle of winter, and I was laying on the couch late one night when a Nutrisystem commercial came on TV. Dan Marino , the legendary Miami Dolphins Quarterback, was talking about how he had lost more than 20 pounds on Nutrisystem, and for some reason, his words stuck with me see the commercial below.
Marino was one of the biggest names in the NFL as a kid, and here he was on TV talking about a diet plan that had worked for him, and he actually seemed genuine and believable. 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. You will need to supplement Lunch and Dinner with either 2 cups of raw veggies or 1 cup of cooked veggies! I happen to be a big fan of zucchini, cauliflower, broccoli and squash so this isn't a problem for me but, it is something to keep in mind. Breakfast was the maple oatmeal which was a little sweet and supposed to be cooked with fat free milk.
I didn't have that so, it was cooked with water. It might be less sweet with milk? For lunch, I had the tuna salad over chopped romaine with cucumbers. It was really tasty and I loved the water chestnuts in the package.
I was really hungry by 3PM, but I remembered to make the Turboshake and was ok. Dinner was the meat ravioli with zucchini. I really was not a fan, but I didn't feel hungry after so that was good. Breakfast was the biscotti bites, which I felt like were nice as a snack but maybe would not be satisfying for everyone.
They were sweet and crunchy, but I could tell they had packed some protein powder in them. I was really under calories yesterday, so I had a soft boiled egg a little after.
Lunch was the loaded mashed potatoes, that I mixed in a cup of steamed broccoli. I used to eat instant mashed potatoes as a very poor college student during cram sessions; these are worse. My favorite part was the broccoli. The whole thing had a very odd powdered cheese taste and the 'bacon bits' were super hard.
I'm glad I got that one out of the way. Dinner was the Hearty Beef Stew. It took a little longer than the 90 seconds-ish to heat up but ended up not being too bad for canned soup.
Breakfast was the Cinnamon Raisin Baked Bar. Very strong protein bar taste. Not too sweet though. Lunch was broccoli cheese rice. Honestly, I was looking forward to this and I think I just can't get over the powdered cheese that keeps popping up. I ended up mixing in my broccoli and squash to help the taste.
I was super hungry at that point so it did not feel like enough. Dinner was the pasta fagioli, which I honestly thought was really good! I added a dash of garlic powder, but really enjoyed it overall. I had the rest of my steamed broccoli and squash from lunch with it. Breakfast is the Apple Strudel Bar-this is the best bar so far. I wish I had another one. Its sweet but exactly what I was craving this morning! Lunch was my favorite so far too- white cheddar mac and cheese.
Wish I was looking forward to another of these tomorrow instead of the chocolate fudge bar. I also figured out that I like the Turboshake much better when I have blended it with the ice and water instead of just shaking it.
It turned out light and fluffy! I had the meatballs 4 with marinara over some zoodles and chopped red pepper. Side of broccoli slaw topped with salsa. It could have used more sauce and the meatballs were very soft. Day 5 Final Day: Peanut butter granola bar for breakfast was TINY and very sweet. Do I sound upset? A bar and a salad is not my favorite lunch ever. Dinner was the chicken pasta parmesan which was surprisingly good!
Big squares of chicken and the sauce tasted like real cheese. Anyway, this was my very long and in depth review. I hope it was helpful and gives you an idea of what the food is like. I would do it again but will probably give myself a break at this point. I didn't have a lot of social commitments during the week, but this would be hard to sustain had I been more active or coming and going through the week. I liked the portion control and didn't often feel hungry when I went to bed, but I just got tired of breakfast bars and processed cheese.
It was great to have veggies as sides at least. I also don't have a scale so, I have no idea if I lost any weight. It was just 5 days so, how much could it really be? I feel a little less puffy? The total loss I have is 9 lbs. I then ordered another 2 frozen kits and no loss last week. Has my body adjusted to the food in the frozen kit?
I have decided to go back to the high protein kit this week and will write another review with my new results. I'll then go back to the frozen I have. I'll see if I have any loss this week and update my review. Maybe the trick is to go back and forth? I have 15 pounds to lose FrancieAZ, October 9, You wanted to know exactly which foods are included in the 5 day Frozen Meal Box?
