Here are some sample comments: The combination of cheeses, cream sauce, chicken seasoning, and spinach make an irresistible diet entrée. Could have probably lost weigt eating lean cuisines, protein bars etc. I've lost 35 pounds and my blood sugar has come WAY down from mid 's to low 's. Nutrisystem's cheapest plan is called the "Basic Plan.
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? I am currently out of town but want to have the product arrive day if or day after returning so I can hit the ground running.
Thanks ahead for any info. Hi Deb — Thanks for visiting. For the most part, dieters really love the flavor of Nutrisystem foods.
They are either fresh frozen or shelf stable packaged. Even though these packaged entrees do contain some preservatives, the scientists at Nutrisystem have managed to create low glycemic comfort foods that are loaded with nutrients and please the palate. There are a few entrees that get better reviews than most others, so lets have a rundown of what some of those foods are as you begin your journey to weight loss on this unique program.
First, it's worth mentioning that Nutrisystem makes it very easy to order items a la carte online. This means that there's no need to drop hundreds of dollars for a full month's supply. Also, with sites like eBay, you can try some Nutrisystem entrees without any long-term commitment. Also, the available discounts for Nutrisystem make this most inexpensive of diets even more affordable. So if you're looking to dip your toes in the water instead of diving in head first with this diet program, you're going to find it's easier than you ever imagined.
Also keep in mind that when you're doing the full-blown program, you'll be rounding out these meals with extra vegetables, salads and fruits. The recent restyling of many recipes in the Nutrisystem line means not just newer packaging but newer tastes to may of the older items.
The older recipe was too sweet and was difficult to eat. But the new recipe has a smoother, less syrupy taste that lets the chocolate drizzle shine through. A taste of crunchy caramel popcorn was all it needed. The gummy center is also gone.
Full marks for the improved recipe. The Nutrisystem chicken Florentine is a great dish many a chef might try to emulate in their kitchen. The combination of cheeses, cream sauce, chicken seasoning, and spinach make an irresistible diet entrée.
But the taste is still garlicky and delicious from the box. The Nutrisystem chicken Florentine is much more tasty than any frozen meal from any brand. The protein content is consistent with the other meals and it comes in a round flat containers that heats well in a microwave.
Calories are at about Like many dishes from Nutrisystem that come in a box, storing away from heat above 80 degrees is advised. Keep the microwaveable dishes for other meals. Eating a variety of healthy food with proper nutrition and protein results in weight loss over time.
While the Nutrisystem program weights exercise, vitamins, and stretching, it also puts some treats into the mix. The Nutrisystem chocolate chocolate chip pudding can be mixed with water or milk or even yogurt. The Nutrisystem Chocolate cake can be stirred and mixed in a single serving and cooked in one of the rinsed Nutrisystem meal dinner dishes. There are mini chocolate chips that baked in the microwave well.
The cake does not burn but cookes and sets a few minutes to cool. No actual full size chocolate cake enters your home or dwelling. For dieters who feel they will never eat snack foods again, Nutrisystem provides some fresh bakery options than taste like a great coffee break option. This is not a mix and not needed to be heated or cooked. These are great snacks to have when going to a movie or picnic when everyone else is munching goodies.
There are many different meal options available, so take the time to check out all of the Nutrisystem Meal options that are available. Love to cook for my family and experiment with new recipes! Healthy, Organic, and sometimes vegetarian meals are my new passion! Click here to cancel reply.
Great Tasting Low in Calories and Good for You If you have watched the rise of the diet programs with prepackaged foods warily, now may be the time to make diet progress with diet food.
