Nutrisystem

I have lost 7. No longer on blood pressure pills and I have more energy. Thank you so much for making my life happier. Thanks so much for sharing your review with us today. Congratulations on your success so far on the plan!

We're happy to hear that you are finding the plan easy to follow. If you ever have any questions, please let us know. The most important thing for me is that it is working. On the road to lose 80 lbs. I've lost 28 after only 6 weeks. The food is not fine dining but it is good enough and with enough variety to not be boring. Some of the food is quite tasty and others only rate around good but, for me, that is not the point. The point is that now most of the time I am not hungry and I am losing weight without having to make major alterations to my life.

Surely, there are times when I just want to get a pizza delivered and munch out but Nutrisystem provides ways to deal with that. I'm not going to blow smoke, some self-control will be required. The few times I have some real cravings, I just pull up the weight chart and see that nice downward trend of weight and remind myself why I am doing this. The quick start program, for me, was the most difficult portion to get through but it surely did as it described.

My weight loss started quickly and tapered a bit, as expected, once I got on the regular weekly plan. I am still losing around 3 to 4 lbs a week which might be a little atypical but I'm not complaining. This meal plan was exactly what I needed. Previously I ate healthy but I just ate too much. Comparing then to now, I realized I was eating roughly double what I should have been. So not only has this plan allowed me to lose weight but it has provided me with an idea of what meal sizes should be if I ever decide to stop with Nutrisystem.

I personally think the frozen meals are a very good add-on as they provide more variety and tend to be a bit more tasty and satisfying. I really do appreciate that this program exists. I just turned 50 not too long ago and was starting to have more concerns about my weight which has always been above 'normal'.

Nutrisystem not only seems to be dealing with my weight but it also helped me ease my mind about my future health. I'm also a workaholic which means that previous diets I tried had, what I feel was, a significant impact on my lifestyle. Which is probably the main reason they all failed. Nutrisystem is very simple. Take their base plan, modify the meal times to fit your current schedule, keep the intervals between meals roughly the same, and in no time it just becomes part of your day.

The food for the most part is portable as well which is rather convenient. Again, Thank You for providing this product.

Before I was skeptical about ever seeing what I consider a healthy weight but this product and changed that skepticism into hope and has provided exactly what the proverbial doctor ordered.

Plastic found in a dinner entree. It was very nice to see! I can't remember when this happened, maybe weeks ago. I thought the response took longer than it should have. Really tho', I've had great customer service every time I needed them. Wait times when phoning are awful. I am very happy with the 30 pounds that I have lost. I love your food and do not want to totally stop my program.

I am working with adjusting to everyday food lifestyle. But yet, I do not want to give up my program. I believe this will keep me on track with keeping my weight under control. Thank you for my delays in my order. I tried Nutrisystem and found out I am allergic. I tried returning the items as they indicated there was a full refund policy, and they told me I couldn't. I called over seven times during the next 30 days and they were not cooperative or helpful at all.

I got transferred around many times, and never had any help at all. I ended up moving, and canceled my card. Two months after that they tried charging my credit card and claim they shipped product, which I didn't order. I never received product because I had moved. Very poor customer service! They try and snag you in and force you to keep buying, even if you don't like the product and even if you are allergic to it!

I have told a lot of people about this horrifying experience and they are all appalled and said there are much better programs out there! We are sorry to hear that you are unable to eat our food and we apologize for the poor service you've received. We will be looking into this and reaching out soon. I have spoken with Chanta in her role as counselor. I was impressed with the interest and patience she posses.

I am now able to form a more comprehensive plan moving forward with my required personal participation with the Nutrisystem to reach my weight loss goal. I am enthusiastically encouraged with my decision to take on this venture for my future.

We are so happy to hear that Chanta was able to help you gain a better understanding of the program! For more information about reviews on ConsumerAffairs. My NuMi bottle issue was already taken care of. He therefore missed the window to order the bottle in time for the 2nd month shipment.

We would like to have it delivered with the order that is coming up for the 3rd month - we get auto delivery, so it is already set up. We are happy to hear that your water bottle issue has been handled but are sad to hear that your husband is still having issues.

We will be assigning this to a member of the Consumer Experience Team who will be reaching out soon. I am very disappointed with the food. Most of it tastes the same to me and actually upsets my stomach. I did not realize I only had two weeks to cancel and much of that was mostly drinks. Then you keep trying different food thinking something will be edible. I know there is plenty of fine print in contracts that should be read. I do not recall being verbally told about these conditions.

This was a lesson that left a very bad taste in my mouth. We are sorry that the foods upset your stomach and that you were unaware of the auto-delivery nature of the program. Not clear when I ordered that it would be on automatic order. Food is not good, not good instructions, dinners were bland. Too many entrees with spicy tomato sauce and cheese, dinners are bland. Shakes made me sick. Emails were only to sell more.

Thank you for writing this review. We are sad to hear the foods were not to your liking and that the deliveries would be automatic. We will be looking into your account and reaching out soon. This is a follow-up to the review I posted on September 5. Soon after I posted my first review, a rep from Nutrisystem contacted me via email.

The email was courteous, professional, and apologetic for the experience I had. The rep went on to offer replacement of the damaged food items I had received and encouraged me to give their company another try. In light of this swift response and their sincere desire to ensure that I was happy with their product and service, I am revising my review.

I accepted a ready-made menu that containing some items that I did not enjoy. In the future, I will make a point to select food items that I now know to be more to my liking than others.

I am very pleased and heartened by Nutrisystem's timely reply and concern for my purchase. They deserve a second chance. I ordered my month's supply of diet food from Nutrisystem with high hopes. When the food shipment arrived, most of the frozen breakfast items were broken into small bits; when I opened the packages, the bits fell out. Then I tried the frozen lunches. Since I take these to work, the only heating option is microwave.

Anything with bread or chicken comes out chewy, gooey, and icy cold in the center. It actually made me gag and lose my appetite, which wasn't the diet plan I expected. I am very careful when reading agreements, and for this item to be overlooked was no easy feat. Fineprint at the end will do that to you. To add insult to injury, the obnoxious customer service person on the phone refused to accept my cancellation until she badgered me with questions and hard sell tactics in a desperate attempt to keep me buying their awful food.

Overall, this was a horrible experience. I will never use or recommend Nutrisystem again. We are so sorry to hear about your poor experience with the delivery of your foods, the food itself, and the representative you dealt with.

We will be taking a peek at your account and reaching out soon. Was not satisfied with the taste of most of the foods, had to throw it away and buy something else, and most of the desserts had an ok flavor, And a lot of meals with cheese. I was not happy with that. My first order included items I didn't order and one that I'm allergic to its ingredients. I was told by one person the items were probably substitutions and when ready they would be replaced. To help clients stay within the confines of the diet when steering away from the pre-packaged meals, the shopping guide has placed more than products one can find at a typical grocery store into five food categories , with specific instructions for each one:.

While more and more men are addressing their weight issues with the help of structured diets and meal delivery plans should have an extra appeal for them , there is no big secret that women remain the bulk of clients for companies providing these types of services. This plan consists of standard dishes for the three meals of the day, along with a daily snack.

The problem is, as stated above, you would have to do your own extra-grocery shopping, and if you do not have a taste for a particular dish, then you are out of luck. Furthermore, there are three meals a week one breakfast, one lunch, and one dinner specified to be self-made, or reserved for a meal at a restaurant. To get you on the fast track to weight loss, Nutrisystem offers the option of upgrading your order with the Turbo13 formerly Lean13 option — a combination of shakes, protein bars, and other gimmicks — integrated in the original plan and designed for immediate results: The Core Plan does not differ too much from the entry-level option; it is simply an offer in which the client can customize the frozen food meals, selecting favorites from dishes.

The Turbo13 jumpstart is, again, in place. One could argue that, especially if one is not that fussy about food, these minor differences in pricing and overall services are not worth having two different, yet so similar, plans. Nevertheless, it is well known that Nutrisystem tweaks their programs quite often, and this might be just part of a temporary situation.

The extra option of appointments to Nutrisystem-certified nutritionists in your area may be worth your while, however. This time around, the client can fully customize their menus — including daily snacks and extras — and choose from main courses which now goes beyond frozen food. There is also the small matter of the corresponding Turbo13 scheme. For men, it is called Turbo Takeoff , remaining true to the seven inches of waist evaporation, but upping the ante of total weight to 15 pounds lost in the first month of dieting.

This aspect seems quite logical, as crashing into a whole other diet may have serious side effects for people with a chronic condition. Other than this detail, the three plans — Basic, Core, and Uniquely Yours — remain the same as in the original situation, with prices unchanged for both men and women. We should add that the frozen food menu is slightly smaller, from a numbers point of view than non-diabetic one, yet we could also suppose that designing such a list is also a bit more expensive.

This diet plan was carefully examined in a clinical trial that went from March to March and the result was encouraging to say at least. Nutrisystem has devised a meal delivery diet for vegetarians also, probably at the pressure exerted from similar competing enterprises, as it was not available in the original scheme of things.

The layout is pretty straightforward: Nutrisystem and similar providers of meal delivery dieting programs rely on a simple recipe — small portions, frequent meals, a cap on sodium intake; rational eating , in a nutshell — made attractive by way of convenience.

From an entrepreneurial angle, one must take the proverbial hat off for the company. Nevertheless, a single dieting scheme cannot work for all individuals. There just is no science to back such a statement. As we have stated at the beginning of this article, Nutrisystem is too big a company for their services to fail miserably.

Official testimonials aside and they abound , the problem is not that the Nutrisystem plans do not deliver weight loss, it is what happens after the individual goes off the Nutrisystem nutrition scheme.

A comparable restraint in caloric intake must be exercised when returning to foods that have not been so carefully selected, prepared, and delivered. There truly is an impressive consensus that by adhering to this diet, between one and two pounds per week should disappear momentarily, from the most obscure Internet reviewer to the most trustworthy outlets such as WebMD. It is notoriously difficult to follow, and the seven-inch reference could be construed as a joke.

Even the most dogmatic converts have never managed more than 10 pounds. Brushing against jokes, the same can be said about the scientific study Nutrisystem cites: It has food options for breakfast, lunchtime, and dinner. This plan has a money back guarantee and free shipping to people living in the USA.

However, the exact ration of ingredients contained in each meal is not provided on the official website. There are programs available in the market and that offer exact results.
