Reviews by Job Title
Bread is my weakness. Cravings for junk food are diminished and I crave healthier foods. Thanks for the feedback. Pros The schedule was nice minus the working on weekends and having a random Tuesday off in the middle of the week. When I got home and opened my Nutrisystem box, there were a few guidelines to follow to achieve my goal. The core plan includes all this, but more food choices. I have an overall better feeling inside and out.

Loved the people I worked with. Alway provides with an opportunity to move up. Thanks so much for the feedback. We agree, we love the people we work with too: Best of luck in your new role!
Very smart, genuine, and interacts with all employees - Company events are lots of fun: It really depends on which department you're in and who you directly report to. I've been here a little over 1 year and have never had the desire to look elsewhere.
Thanks so much for the feedback! We wish you the best in your role! Coaches care and want to see you do well for the most part.
A polite professional environment. Daily Verbal abuse from members who are upset with the company or the food or policy Customers paying lots of money for moldy food. Decline in your metrics due to situations you cant fix or control Fixing peer errors but getting in trouble or threatened for your own alleged mistakes Constantly told different ways to do your job Forcing yourself to obtain a goal that is unrealistic compared to the standards of the company at the time Condiscending Cuthroat Management.
Pick and choose who they like. More focused on everything you may do wrong on a call Quick to write you up before coaching Undercover Micromanagement quick to fire and get you out the door with no hesistation. Your just another name and number on the computer.
Came to work unhappy Tenure doesnt mean anything for particular department Mentally Stressful and non secure job. Thank you for your feedback. We will review your suggestions and continue to support our employees the best we can! We wish you luck in your current endeavors. Helping people dedicated to improving their diet Over-time is great Staff are very friendly. If you have a background in nutrition, it is difficult to only provide the nutrition information Nutrisystem wants you to provide.
When customer service was busy, clients would call the Weight Loss Counselors to fix problems with their order. Give more appreciation to the counselors and customer service staff - they work their butt off all day even day.
Thanks for the feedback. We hope you addressed any concerns with your Supervisor, since you were here for a year. It's important for us to respond to a few parts of your review.
Those calls will be more detailed in the Nutrition conversation. Since the Counseling team and Customer Service team are joined, the Counseling group is cross-trained to help support service during busier times. Team mentality, lots of training, great compensation, job satisfaction, advancement opportunities within the company.
Better Training to Sales reps to explain the products and commitments to potential customers. Thanks for your feedback! Please note- during our busy season, we must limit the number of representatives out on the same day. Great idea on the sales training, we will share with our Training team!
Descent money and benefits nice people to work with. This motivated me to do another week. Weeks went on and I continued following the Nutrisystem diet. So, how long does Nutrisystem take to work? It works within the first few days. Each day I made sure to drink at least 64 oz of water and light exercise, which usually included twenty minutes of hula hooping.
With the help of my Fitbit, I made a goal to get in at least steps in per day. I used the MyfitnessPal app to keep a log of my daily food and calorie intake. Here I was able to make other friends from a Nutrisystem support group who were reaching for the same goals. The weekends were challenging as we chose to go out to our favorite restaurants.
I ordered off the Lite menu or A La Carte. The hardest part was avoiding the chips and dip at the Mexican restaurant.
This usually resulted in me actually sitting on my hands. Yes the struggle was real here. The second week was easier. I finally set a goal to lose 30 lbs. I really wanted to get into a new Easter outfit. I was still buying Nutrisystem by the week from Walmart. Does Nutrisystem from Walmart or Costco work? It sure did for me. I looked forward to my next meal. I got hungry between meals sometimes. This is when I would snack on foods such as almonds, kale chips or nonfat yogurts. I purchased some Nutrisystem shakes to use between meals also.
They are delicious and will knock out the hungry feelings or cravings. I only lost 2 lbs the second week but it was still a loss. By the third week, I noticed my health was improving. I no longer suffered from heartburn and acid reflux. I felt good and best of all I was losing weight. By now, I knew this was the diet for me and was ready to keep going. I decided to give in and purchase through Nutrisystem. While I was online ordering I chatted with a representative about my plan options and payment concerns.
She was very informative as she helped me make my first purchase. Once I became a member, there were tools on the website that helped me achieve my goal. I entered my height and weight, how many pounds I wanted to lose and it set a calorie goal for me.
I needed calories a day to achieve my desired weight loss goal of 30 lbs. I was able to choose days worth of food from the menu. A couple days later a large box showed up at my door. I stocked my pantry and the journey continued. After one month the whole diet thing was easier as I was no longer craving foods like before.
The cravings were not completely gone but walking away from a piece of cake or pizza was no longer a challenge. I had my own Nutrisystem goodies such as chocolate, pizza, potatoes, muffins and more. I stepped on the scales and smiled as I had lost a total of 11 lbs in one month.
This earned me a Nutribear. Nutrisystem will award a new bear for every 10 lbs. New eating habits were not my only struggle. To accomplish success, this required me to give up food and wine outings with friends.
I turned down invites as this would lead to binge eating and they would not understand. One day while exercising and listening to music, I began to get emotional and felt alone.
I felt like everyone had abandoned me. I was even snubbed by some of my overweight friends and family. Some of the people I work with picked on me. I would just toss it in the trash and carry on with my day. They can be judgmental as well. Calling someone too skinny can be just as painful as calling someone fat. However, my husband and daughter were my biggest fans on this journey. My husband continued complementing me on how good I look and how proud he is of me.
He never complained that we did not go out to eat as much as we used to or that I no longer cooked meals.
He pushed me to exercise and eat healthy. It was definitely an emotional rollercoaster at times. At the same time, reading other people's testimonies and reviews of the Nutrisystem diet was encouraging and inspiring, too. My size twelves were getting too big. Though I was actually enjoying wearing them loose, I knew at this rate I would need some new clothes.
Grabbing a few pairs of jeans in a size 10, and one in a size 8 just for fun, I dashed into the dressing room. They were a little snug but I was still a comfortable ten.
However, I did buy a pair of yoga pants to walk in. When I got home, I put on those jeans I had in my closet and took my first ever mirror selfie. I was half way to my goal and I now had the confidence that I would reach it. By week ten, I was still enjoying all the food and health benefits of Nutrisystem. I still had 10lbs to lose to reach my goal but I started getting discouraged. My weight loss had slowed down. I even gained a pound.
Due to financial struggles, I was afraid I would have to cut back on my Nutrisystem food orders. I was averaging a 1 to 2 lbs weight loss and that was a healthy normal. I decided to measure instead of weigh. Then there was still the money issue.
There were other saving options out there as well, like a Nutrisystem promo code for existing customers. By the 3rd month, I had lost even more weight and people were starting to notice. I was getting a lot of compliments.
I bagged up the clothes and donated them to the local Good Will. The weight loss is real to me now. Let me give you some brief Nutrisystem food reviews. Every month I would log onto my Nutrisystem account. From the menu options, I would pick 28 foods of my choice for each of the four meals which included breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert. The choices were easy as I loved almost everything they offer.
The plan I chose, which is the Core plan, only includes the shelf foods instead of the frozen varieties. I got to have delicious foods such as doughnuts, pancakes, chocolate muffins, pizza, hamburger, chicken and even cake and brownies. With all the choices, it never gets boring. The meats in the shelf items are conveniently packed in a vacuum sealed wrap but were tender and taste like they are right out of the deli.
With so many varieties, I ate something different each day of the week. It was just perfectly pre-portioned meals to keep me on a healthy track. The food contains no trans fats, and it's low in sodium.
And the carbs it contains are of low glycemic index. This is why Nutrisystem food prevents fatique, reduces your appetite, keeps you fuller and energized for longer.
It's safe for diabetics, too. As you will probably read in other Nutrisystem weight loss reviews, the taste is not the only thing great about Nutrisystem foods. Each meal is individually wrapped with cooking instructions which made it easy to toss in my purse and go to work. Some of the meals are easy enough to eat while in the car. Nutrisystem will choose which meals you get. The core plan includes all this, but more food choices.
The custom version of this package costs the same. The app also offers daily tips and inspirational quotes from the Nutrisystem team, along with activity suggestions. The high-protein aspect of the meal plans is ideal for people actively looking to build muscle and lose fat at the same time. The fact that Nutrisystem also has plans specifically for both vegetarians and those with diabetes is a huge advantage. It provides a diet plan to customers who previously would have difficulty finding a solution.
Those with other severe allergies — or particular diets for medical reasons — should be mindful of this as well.
Nutrisystem products include allergens such as egg, wheat, soy, tree nuts, and wheat, so they may not be suitable for people trying to avoid any of these allergens. Over-restriction of calories can be just as unhealthy as overeating. Finding a good balance based on height, weight, and activity level is best. Although the calories are controlled, the quality of the ingredients is low. Nutrisystem includes many preservatives as well as processed and refined sugars.
For those sensitive to these, Nutrisystem may not be a great option. Both Jenny Craig and Medifast have similar business models. Jenny Craig and Nutrisystem are both available online, but Nutrisystem has several key advantages many customers prefer. Nutrisystem also has more customizable and specialized plans. Jenny Craig is also much more expensive all the way around. The company also has plans for men, women, vegetarians, and those with diabetes.
And they offer special shakes, like those designed for joint health or coronary health. Both programs, however, will encourage you to supplement the meal plans with fresh food from the grocery store, like fruits or salads, as a snack. For many people, this accelerated speed of weight loss can be risky, so you should only use Medifast under the supervision of your doctor.
