Compare that to your average grocery bill these days, and that seems like a pretty good deal to me. At the same time, reading other people's testimonies and reviews of the Nutrisystem diet was encouraging and inspiring, too. These weight loss menus have been tried and tested with a great deal of positive outcomes. My call is being reviewed now sure it is but, we all know how this is going to end. You have a lot of good info here. Big hope very disappointed. 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.

A lot of research has been carried out on the effectiveness of there meals in the past. I went through two of the major studies and tests. A study pushed in the journal Postgraduate Medicine in was done on 69 obese type 2 diabetic participants.
The results of this 12 week study spoke volumes with participants that ate meals based on nutrisystem lost up to 18 pounds while the participants in the control group lost 1 pound, who attended diabetes management educational sessions.
After 12 more weeks participants on Nutrisystem lost another 24 pounds while the controls who were introduced to Nutrisystem had lost 13 pounds. In a study published in the New England Journal examined diet based on glycemic index like Nutrisystem compared to other types of diets. Results after 26 weeks showed that the high glycemic index dieters had gained 2 pounds on average than the other group on high glycemic diet.
Another similar study in done by Cochrane Collaboration group on half a dozen randomised controlled trials of low glycemic index dieters over a period of a year. The results showed that participants on low glycemic diets lost 2 more pounds on average than participants on high glycemic diets. In the same year they tested Diabetes plan, 50 participants on the diet lost 22 pounds over a period of 6 months.
This is compared to a control group who lost 5 pound loss. In a study in the Annals of Medicine sought to compare various commercial weight loss programs. Results indicated that Nutrisystem participants lost at least 3. The research also uncovered the importance of intake of fibres and their role in weight loss.
As such they encourages the consumption of fruits and veggies to boost their daily fibre intakes. The company also funded a study based on customers who commenced the program between and Through an online tracking tool, Numi a digital product that integrates with wearables to track their progress especially if you are on the do-it-yourself program. Researchers studied weight diaries of more than , overweight and obese participants.
By the time 24 weeks some participant had stopped tracking their progress using the online tool. Results of the trial showed that dieters lost approximately an average of 8.

Follows the USDA's recommended daily intake of mg sodium or less for the general population Dietary Guidelines for Americans, All plans have naturally different sodium levels, and may vary based on which you choose as well as the corresponding which grocery food items included in the your meal plan.
However it is important to note that some folks might have to reduce their sodium intake to mg daily. As with any weight loss, results vary based on adherence to the diet program. It is important for people to understand that weight loss needs dedication and work. Introduction of the Turbo10 reduces up to 10 pounds, shedding off over 5 inches from the weight within the first month. Nutrisystem allows the dieter to choose what they want to achieve through the program with the various plans available.
I was always a few pounds overweight, but that never really seemed to bother me until one embarrassing moment during a vacation. I got stuck on a water slide. It was just for a few minutes but it was enough to draw out a lot of laughs. Later on after I went home, I decided to look up some statistics on weight related issue. Then I decided to look at some of the best weight loss programs and came across this particular programme.
Later on the rate of weight loss became slower after losing 55lbs. After the first few months of eating these healthy meals I was still losing an average of 6 lbs every month. The weight loss program is healthy and my body adjusted to the minimum nutrient intakes recommended.
Cardio and strength training guides are provided and they help to reduce weight and shed off fat faster. Both diet programs incorporate pre-packed foods along with meal-management. Jenny Craig at Home follows a 12 days ready-to-go food with 16 days of Frozen food while Nutrisystem has different meal options. Jenny Craig prices are higher.. Another distinction between the two is when it comes to shipping. Jenny Craig offers both telephone and in-person support while Nutrisystem offers telephone support.

How long does it take to lose weight? We are so happy to hear how well the program is working for you. Remember to use those unlimited non-starchy veggies. They can be a big help with hunger especially in your first couple weeks on the plan.
You can also reach out to a counselor at press option two. They would be happy to go over more tips if needed. Please let us know if there is anything else we can do for you. Hope you have a wonderful day and congrats on your weight loss! Tomorrow is my last day on turbo take off.
I was advised earlier this week to call back toward the end of my first week to speak with a counselor. If I could speak with William every time I called that would be fantastic. Thank you so much for your review. We are so happy to hear you were pleased with your experience when speaking with William. Hope you have a wonderful day and welcome to the program!
I would like to say for the first couple of days I found this a bit difficult but only because it was such a lifestyle change for me. Now I love it. 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. When I called the customer service lady was very rude, basically stated I was lying and wouldn't allow me to speak to a supervisor. I'm very disappointed with the service I receive so I will take my business to a place that has better customer service.
Went thru a few months of products. Following it closely and exercised Sent email to customer support and I was told to think of it as not wasted but I received nutritional food with fiber Now I know why it only got one star. Weight loss system worksstale product and no one to answer to except counselors with no control.
I emailed three correspondences to FIVE different departments only to receive a notice that they don't reply to emails because they were too busy. I also included to them pictures of the moldy carrot cake, along with the packaging that states the date is still okay. The oatmeal is so stale it sticks to the side of the package and had to pour hot water in the bag to get the product out. Chocolate covered pretzels are stale.
We did call and the rep was very nice and stated that she couldn't do anything except replace our stale food. How many packages were bad? I honestly didn't count how many items I threw awayat their prices ANY wasted product is too many! Doesn't anyone there want to see a photo of the stale food? Does anyone there care? VERY poor about keeping the customer happy, however, are not timid about selling you the program. Shame on you, Nutrisystem.
We are sorry to hear about the spoiled and stale items you received. We will be reviewing your account and reaching out soon. I am not sure why in today's time of electronics that it takes so long to get the information. We are sorry to hear that it took you so long to receive the information you needed for the program.
We will be reaching out shortly. Pleased with the conversation with my counselor. I feel I have a better handle on what I should be doing. I am looking forward to losing the weight I have set my goal for. Thank you very much for your help. We are happy to hear that you feel like you understand the program better after speaking with one of our counselors.
Please let us know if there is anything else we can do to help! I wrote in with a few complaints about some of the food I received; some broken food, bags not sealed and crushed muffins. Allison was very helpful and courteous and was able to change my mood.
Thank you Allison for being pleasant and helpful. Thank you for the kind words! We will be sure to pass this compliment onto Allison. Keep up the excellent work on the program, Chris! I didn't know this when I originally call to cancel my account. Not that I like it, I understand that it was to be paid now.
I was on hold for several minutes and when he finally came back he proceeded to tell me that his supervisor was at lunch and would called me back when she returned, "Oh and by the way here's your confirmation for your cancellation". At that time I received an email from my PayPal account, advising me that I just made a payment to Nutrisystem.
The man had the nerve to charge my account while he had me on hold. I have called every day, each rep has told me what he did was ok.
