Already pleased with brands legion of repeat customers, Zier felt Nutrisystem still needed to widen its audience. Alex May 2, at 4: I really was not into the food which made me want to eat other things. Shannon Graley October 17, at 7: I think the rotini was decent. As far as I know, the Nutrisystem kits and other menu items have to be purchased online, but you can have them shipped directly to your home or to your nearest Walmart store. I will definitely do that as well.
It mainly comes down to calorie control and self-control. I feel like she gave me more food than this. Congrats on the weight loss though! I actually purchased this, this weekend to give it a try. I much prefer the frozen foods and wish they had the same package in frozen.
I have no diet advice because I struggle with it myself. I had a hard time with this diet. I really was not into the food which made me want to eat other things. Food is just so darn hard. Congrats on losing 5. Congratulations on your weight loss! My diet advice is eat clean nothing that comes out of a bag, box or carton. This was a great overview. I have always wondered if people really stuck to this plan, it just seems like so little to eat. I think it is definitely something you could put together on your own with calorie counting.
Hey Lynda, Nice work getting through the 5th day. The weight loss is great. Your comments throughout this last day are quite telling about whether this is a diet that could actually work for you. It was only 5 days and yet this final day sounds awful. Your email address will not be published. Notify me of followup comments via e-mail.

Congrats on the 5. I would be starving too! Just eat healthy and exercise…. Oh man, I forgot about those cinnamon bun bars.
They are SO good! That was surprising to me. I think it probably was the best thing on their plan that I ate. I have zero advice for dieting. If you've been on other diets, you can expect much of the same with this Nutrisystem 5-day plan. It's easy enough to add in some protein and veggies, the food isn't bad, and I wasn't hungry between meals.
The bars taste like all the other bars, the dinners were okay Smelled bad, looked bad, tasted bad. Haven't had the Rotini yet, and after last night, I'm a little afraid. I was disappointed to find, however, that the Nutrisystem D 5-day plan marketed to diabetics contained all but two of the same meal choices. I bought the Diabetic plan to try next week, hoping there would be different meals with lower carb content more like Atkins bars and meals.
In any case, it's a great jump start to get your eating under control, and I will do it next week, but skip the Chicken Alfredo!
LifetimeDieter, September 13, Highly Recommend this Starter Program!! This five-day starter box was a great start to a great program. As with any diet, the first couple days are the hardest, but the meals are packaged wonderfully and are very convenient. The five-day starter box has a variety of different food types to give an idea of the tastes.
After completing my five-day starter program, I decided to order a month supply directly from Nutrisystem. If you have never tried Nutrisystem, I think the starter box is a great way to get introduced. However, if you try the box and like some but not all the foods, then keep going and sign up for the service on-line to customize your food.
Everyone's tastes are different so being able to customize what foods you want is a very nice feature of ordering on-line after you've tried the starter program. This program has taught me portion control and I'm losing weight and feeling better. I would highly recommend this program to everyone! Fluffyissofluffy, July 25, I have purchased this packet for 3 weeks. I have followed it almost to the letter.
There have been a few slip ups and I have swapped out a vegetable they recommend for one I love. I have lost That is also buying it, using it for 5 days then my own food for 2 days then back on for the next 5, etc. I am pleased with the food. The only one I could live without and am not too fond of is the chicken alfredo.
I do add a tad bit of garlic powder to it and that makes a world of difference. The rest of the food is pretty darn good. I'm so thrilled with my overall outcome of this sample packet, I'm biting the bullet and joining NutriSystem next week. Good luck to everyone. I know what a battle this is and I'm excited about this. Thanks WalMart and NutriSystem for giving us the opportunity to try it before we buy it. Bearskin, July 28,
