Combining Nutrisystem with your Own Foods
To understand whether the program organizers are honest with us, let us have a look at the users' testimonials in the next part of our review. She also thought the plan sounded good because she would not have to cook special foods for me while I was dieting. I did not have to count calories. I love this plan. Diet-to-Go has some really good plans that sound like they could work for you.
A Review of Nutrisystem Benefits
Still, individuals should build their own support system that consists of family and friends. They can also utilize the self-monitoring tools, counseling, behavior modification guide, peer support and other resources offered through this company site. This can be of great benefit to those who are feeling overwhelmed by the process. The website for the company has everything a person might need to carry out this program.
This site is where people can also look at what all is offered, including the details of women, men and diabetes plans. Nutrisystem makes it possible for customers to customize their plans to better match their personal metabolism as well. Success stories can be found directly on the website. These might offer inspiration to people during times of relapse or discouragement. The frequently asked questions page has plenty of information on it, as well as the other areas of the website that include details on the company itself and the program it offers.
These are good resources for people with concerns or questions related to the process. Overall, the program starts by selecting a plan. A common option is the standard plan, but those interested in personalizing the program can answer a few questions and receive a more tailored plan. Users will be involved with the process of customizing menu packages.
This is the time when they select meals, which might be frozen or ready-to-go dishes that are sent to them. Once orders are placed, they should arrive between four and ten days later.
The auto-delivery service is suggested for added savings. People can join the online community by creating a profile. Thanks so much for the review — definitely gives me hope!
Hi Kris — congrats on signing up — while results will vary for everyone, I truly believe that you will lose a lot of weight if you follow the program — so stick with it, and let us know how it goes. They try to rip you off when quit their auto delivery program. Very very unpleasant people to deal with. They shipped me stuff 3 days after I had already cancelled and had a confirmation number stating I cancelled. They refused to turn the shipment around or to take it back and are trying to create some kind of lie that I created a 2nd account in November and they only cancelled one account.
The only thing I did in November was update my credit card expiration date which I regret. If I guaranteed no more shipments are coming to my name or my address that should be the end of the story, not with them! I am fighting them through my credit card company but please be aware of whatever traps they have in store for any of you.
Hi Troy — Sorry to hear that that was your experience. It was actually a customer service rep who told me I could switch from the meal delivery to just the Turbo Shakes after my first month on the program to lock in the auto-delivery savings without having to commit to another month of food.
In any case, I hope you are able to get things resolved! I started the program today, January 1st. My resolution is to feel better about myself, but do it in a healthy way that had structure. How much and when I should be eating vegetables, and ideas on what to eat if you have to attend a social function or business based meeting that involves food. Thanks for posting a well written, and information overview of this program. I have three questions and maybe one is a question for a NS counselor… 1.
Or can tomatoes, cukes, etc. Also, plain or with some sort of dressing? How many turbo shakes can you have per week… and when can they be consumed? Thanks in advance …. Hi Tami — Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to comment! I always add extra veggies to my greens and have found the only thing you really need to watch out for is the salad dressing.
But for me, cucumbers, tomatoes, etc. I usually have my TurboShake midday — around 2: That said, I would definitely suggest using the Nutrisystem counseling service for full clarification, though — especially for questions 2 and 3. Best of luck if you decide to try the full program!
I wanted to say that this article is nicely written and included almost all the vital info I needed. Thanks for the review. I second your recommendation for Nutrisystem. Their service helped me significantly a few years ago. Hoping for the same results! Hi Maria — thanks for commenting! Hope it goes well again if you decide to give it another try. Have you found that Nutrisystem is a good way for keeping the weight off over the long term?
How long do you really have to be on Nutrisystem before you starting seeing results? Just finished month 1 and lost about 9 pounds! This post could not be written any better! Reading this post reminds me of my good old room mate! He was always trying new weight loss products. I will forward this page to him. Fairly certain he will have a good read.
Thank you for sharing! I just read this well written post. I have a handicapped daughter who has gained so much weight. We have tried everything with very little success. After taking to her doctors we decided to give NS a try. She started the program on February 16, She is loving the food and the program. She has already dropped three pounds. Her beginning weight was So she has a long way to go. But the support and your post will definitely help her obtain her goals for healthier lifestyle.
We will keep you informed on her progress. Thank you so much. Hi Shirley — What an inspirational story — really hoping she has success! Thanks for keeping us posted, and wishing your daughter all the best. I suppose its ok to use some of your ideas!! I have been on Nutrisystem for about 5 weeks now. I lost 15 pounds the first month and have been following it to a T. The food tastes fine and it is very easy to just grab something pop it in the microwave if necessary and go.
I have been using My Fitness Pal to track my food and am eating about calories a day. The first week was really tough and I had a hard time, but I stuck to it. Now I m satisfied and use to it. Planning on finishing up the second month and then on the 3rd month working in more home cooked meals and tracking to stay at the same calorie level.
Then will switch over to the auto ship of Turbo shakes for my 4th month. I have about 40 pounds to lose and feel like I am making some good headway with the Nutrisystem plan. Good job on the review, very well written.
Wow, nice job Carolyn! Thanks for sharing your story, and best of luck with the rest of your diet. I was very happy to find this website. Just wanted to thank for your time for this wonderful read, and inspirational review!! Hi Kelly — sorry to hear that! Have you tried connecting with the Nutrisystem counseling service? We had to take Nutrisystem program for 8 weeks because we got it at a discount thru our insurance company. My goal was to loose 30 lbs. At the end of the 8 weeks I had lost only 3 lbs.
We did not care for the cardboard like food and did not get anywhere close to our goals. This program obviously works for lots of folks, but not for us. We did go to the Naturally Slim program and in 8 weeks I lost Naturally Slim is based on not what you eat but when and how you eat and you eat your own real food and got real results.
We will stay with our new habits learned with Naturally Slim and will not have any good words from our Nutrisystem experience. Hi John — thanks for sharing your experience. Thanks so much for sharing your story. It was encouraging and helpful. I am only on my second day of Lean 13 and after comparing the Turbo Shakes with the protein powder I was using before, I noticed that mine was lower in calories, fat, sugar, and carbs and higher in protein by quite a lot.
Thanks again for your review! Hi Peggy — I think you should be fine using your own protein shake. Just to be safe you may want to talk to a Nutrisystem counselor, and they can let you know for sure. The biggest issue would probably be the calorie count of your shake vs. Best of luck with your two weeks. I made some raspberry coffee and chilled it. Thought that might be a nice tip for someone else. Just finished day 1 of the Turbo Takeoff… I was down 2 lbs this morning!!!
Yay… only 58 more lbs to go!!! I am so determined and my mind is in the right place to really do this, this time.. I am very excited for the results.. I know i will be on the program for a few months but, I really feel like I need the structure of this program right now. I have been feeling a lot of emotions from having gone through breast cancer and several surgeries the last 3 years… I just kinda let myself go… but, I am so ready for this change!!!
Thanks for sharing, Lynn! Best of luck with reaching your goals! Very thorough review…thanks for making the decision easier! I just signed up for my first order. Went with the Core, and really hoping to least a good 20 pounds. Just finished month 1. Does this stuff really work? Thanks for the comment, Heather…It definitely works when you follow the program correctly.
Best of luck if you decide to try it! First, take the time to put the food on a plate like you would normally eat. Focus on the journey. Take the time to praise yourself for the positive change. I started on Nutrisystem exactly 2 months ago with a week lapse. I only wish I had started months before. Question first great info as I really need something kind of no Brainerd and ready. How long in your experience would you say orders take to turn around?
My Nutrisystem weekends on your own looks like this: Mornings I eat cereal. I like one bowl of Special K redberries with fat free skim milk and my two cups of coffee, sweetner no cream. Lunch on Satuardy, if I'm at home is a salad and maybe some watermelon. Dinner is usually at a restaurant. I like salads and I have had some awesome salads. We went to a steak house last Saturday and I had the small grilled Salmon, a baked sweet potato and a salad.
If we go Thai I get fresh salad rolls, I love em. We keep sugar free jello cups in the fridge all the time as a snack. It's a free food so.. Anyway, maybe this information will help someone. I know for me my healthy lifestyle fell apart at the grocery store. Nutrisystem takes care of that for you. I go to the grocery store a lot these days but, it's all small purchases. There's four grocery stores between work and home so I don't mind. I don't buy foods with a shelf life for the most part.
I would say that we actually save money on Nutrisystem because during the week we don't eat out at all and we don't buy very much from the grocery store. Our monthly expenditure is either cheaper or a wash but, Nutrisystem isn't costing us anymore than we were spending a month anyway.
I have a new un-opened box ready to go. I have three days from the last order. After the next box is done I may try to go off Nutrisystem. That would be 16 weeks on Nutrisystem. I think I know how to eat now. If I start to slide I'll order a card and get a new box of Nutrisystem. By Kathy on June 21, I bought this thru Amazon, sold by Charity Books. I received the card to order the food. This is a total scam and Amazon should not even sell this if you can't get you're money's worth..

By Peg on January 20, I was under the impression that when I ordered this from La Leela that I would be receiving the product not a card with a code for the Nutritsystem web site. The charge for mailing a card was overpriced. It should be stated in the information somewhere that they are just selling a card! And that you have to go to a web site and then sign up to get your product. I would not have bought this after seeing that I could get it cheaper on the Nutrisystem web site.
