I have been using My Fitness Pal to track my food and am eating about calories a day. In 3 years I graduated a size Can you tell me where it is, please? The combination of veggies, angel hair pasta, and high-protein chicken covers all the bases at dinnertime. We did go to the Naturally Slim program and in 8 weeks I lost

I get to eat three meals a day plus a snack and a dessert. As soon as I start to feel hungry I get to eat again. With Nutrisystem I get access to the Nutrisystem website tools too. The website is wonderful. I can log on and talk to other people from all over the world who are trying to lose weight. The other people on the website inspire me to want to lose more weight and become even healthier. The people on the website inspire to me to stick with the plan until I reach my goal. It's a great support group.
The Nutrisystem website also provides me with access to a counselor who is available 24 hours a day to chat with if I have any questions. It's working for me and I know it will work for you too. Now if I can only get my wife on it. I need more support!
I have been using Nutrisystem's plan for about two months now. I thought for sure when I started the plan that I would probably have at least one thing to complain about it; however, I was wrong. Nutrisystem truly is a great plan. Any problems that you may read about online are obviously one off items and not a consistent trend.
The basic plan is extremely easy to follow. It comes with specific instructions on how to follow it. It also comes with some great dieting tools. The best part of the plan is that it comes with healthy foods that are already prepared for me to eat. Food wise, I love the vegetable beef soup; it is one of my favorite things to eat for lunch. I love to eat the chili with beans for dinner.
So far, I love all of the foods I've tried. I haven't found one that wasn't edible. Even the desserts and snacks taste darn good.
And unlike other diets, with Nutrisystem I don't crave junk food because I get a treat everyday in the meal plan: I have needed to lose weight for quite awhile and am just glad that I'm finally doing something about it. I am very satisfied with the basic plan. Like most guys I know, I love to eat! I was always afraid of going on a hard core diet plan because I did not want to give up great tasting foods.
With the Nutrisystem plan I have not had to give up any of my usual great tasting foods. Hats off to Nutrisystem for figuring out how to get great tasting food in a small package that is so easy to prepare - just stick it in the microwave and you're eating in 5 minutes.
So far, my favorite is the mushroom risotto, the chicken with dumplings, and the chili with beans, the flame broiled beef patty, the barbecue sauce pork wrap, the chocolate chocolate chip pudding, the chocolate crunch bar, the chocolate chip cookie, the creamy tomato sauce, the blueberry pancakes and the blueberry muffins. I could go on and on about the rest of Nutrisystem's dishes but I'm making myself hungry ;- I enjoy eating all of Nutrisystem's foods.
I do not think I have found a food that I did not like yet. Do not be afraid of having to give up eating great food because you're still going to get great food with Nutrisystem. Nutrisystem is a great diet plan for anyone - especially men. I get to eat great food that is already prepared for me everyday. All I have to do is follow the basic directions for following the plan and eat the Nutrisystem foods.
The best part about the Nutrisystem plan is that I lost seven pounds since I started it a month ago. Nutrisystem also supplies its members with a member website. The website helps individuals on the plan stay motivated. The website is a place where anyone who is on the plan can go for support. I enjoy logging onto the website and seeing the progress that I have made. I also enjoy reading inspiring stories from others on the Nutrisystem plan that have lost weight.
Luckily though, Nutrisystem offers many different foods to choose from. Nutrisystem is also adding new food items to the menu all of the time. Always good to keep the variety up. The Nutrisystem plans foods are also healthy.
Nutrisystem has empowered me to lose weight and maintain a healthy lifestyle. As an added bonus, I now do all the cooking for my girlfriend, which has really helped our love life. After all, who can't throw an extra dish in the microwave for 5 minutes? Give it a try guys and I expect your girlfriend will be just as happy as mine is. I have lost 20 pounds in three months and haven't been exercising at all.
Just like their marketing says, the plan really does allow you to eat healthy while losing weight. The foods are very easy to clean up when I am finished also. Just throw the microwave safe container in the trash. What more could you ask for? I take my frozen lunch with me to work and I can get more work done while losing weight!
The plan is also very simple to follow, just follow their instructions. Don't deviate by eating snickers bars, okay?! Stay away from those evil vending machines too! If you drink coffee, stop using creamer as I discovered I was drinking an extra calories a day in coffee creamer! The Nutrisystem plan is great for men who do not know how to cook and want to lose weight, feel healthier and eat healthier. Since starting the diet, I've lost 20 pounds and have started feeling good about my body again, which has helped my love life significantly.
My girlfriend can't keep her hands off of my new slimmer waist ;- She is so proud of me and she thinks I look great. Who would have thought I could eat healthy food that I do not have to prepare that I actually like? I am a married man who needed to lose weight. My wife told me I should try Nutrisystem because I could lose weight while eating good tasting food. She also thought the plan sounded good because she would not have to cook special foods for me while I was dieting.
I must say I am impressed with the Nutrisystem plan. Nutrisystem says they deliver a simple program with great tasting foods to help you lose weight. Nutrisystem is not lying when they say this. Nutrisystem's foods are delectable. I have never eaten healthy foods that tasted so good in all my life.
There are foods like buffalo wing pretzels, pulled pork wraps, cinnamon buns, pancakes and many other great tasting foods. The foods are not drab and boring like with Medifast which I tried last year. The foods are flavorful and delightful. I feel great and I am beginning to look great. My wife is enjoying the smaller me and I am enjoying the attention.
Nutrisystem is a simple way to lose weight. Fingers crossed I can keep it off when I go off of Nutrisystem.
Nutrisystem is diet plan that allows a person to lose weight without having to think too much about it. I haven't tried any of the other plans, but I can tell you this, the basic plan is super easy to follow. It comes with diet tools that are easy to use and awesome tasting foods albeit frozen. As they say in the support forum, it's all about taking it one day at a time and doing your best to stick with the meal plans and not deviate, which is hard to do if you have co-workers that want to eat out for lunch all the time.
The plan has helped me look better and feel great about myself. Losing weight has given me confidence that I had been lacking for awhile. I now feel confident at work and am ready for a career change. I have more confidence to ask women out on dates too. Well, at least online anyway. I owe my confidence to my weight loss and I owe my weight loss to Nutrisystem. If you're thinking about joining Nutrisystem, see if you can get your hands on one of their chocolate puddings. It's hard to believe that something that tastes this good can help you lose weight.
Hey, just wanted to let you know that I read all the reviews and decided to give Nutrisystem a chance. Turns out that its true The plan is extremely easy to follow and I have found it to be cheaper than buying food at the grocery store. I mainly shop at Whole Foods aka Whole Paycheck though.
The plan comes with easy to understand instructions on how to lose weight. It also comes with access to a very useful website, daily menu planner and diary that are helpful for losing weight and keeping it off.
IMHO, the best part of Nutrisystem is the food. I have really enjoyed the plentiful food options available on the basic plan. Lots of variety and deserts. The breakfasts are my favorite part of the meal plan; they keep me going until lunch time. The lunches are also very good. The dinners, snacks and desserts are also phenom. Great deal for the money! Yesterday I got up and ate blueberry pancakes, which tasted delicious.
Later for lunch I ate creamy tomato soup which was also very tasty. Staying hydrated means "I can exercise more, and longer, than if I don't drink water. With the massive meals served at so many American restaurants, it's easy to go Dutch -- with the dinner plate. That way, we don't feel stuffed, and we save some money.
You can share more than just a meal out. Why not double up on a bicycle built for two? Go halves on the cost of a personal trainer? Maybe split a gym membership?
The American Heart Association knows what we love: And they also know we need to get more exercise. So why not combine the two, they ask? Try dancing to the music when you tune into your favorite music show, or practice some stress-relieving cardio boxing when your least favorite reality contestant is on camera.
During commercials pedal your stationery bike, walk the treadmill, or slip in a little strength training doing bicep curls with cans of your favorite fizzy beverage as weights.
Or get inspired to really focus: Put in a high-energy exercise DVD and get motivated by the pros onscreen. It doesn't matter exactly what you do, so long as you're up and active. Aim for at least 15 minutes, says the AHA.
If you get really engrossed, you just might outlast the last survivor. That's because while a small portion served on a large plate can leave you craving more, a smaller plate gives the visual signal that you already have more. We know we've had enough because we see the bottom of our bowl or plate. And don't forget smaller bowls, cups, and spoons.
For example, try savoring a bowl of ice cream with a baby spoon. Not only does the pleasure last longer, but your body has time to register the food you've eaten. When your weight loss efforts lead to boredom or too much self-focus, get occupied with something else. So take a break from the siren-call of the tube, and get occupied with things that have nothing to do with food.
For some, that might mean becoming involved with local politics, discovering yoga, or enjoying painting. Or maybe you want to help a child with a science project, repaint the bedroom, or take a class. Have a life outside of weight loss. Then at least eat your meals at the table. While cultivating that virtue isn't exactly painless, it may help to know that keeping weight off generally gets easier over time.
That's the result of a study published in Obesity Research, where researchers found that for people who had lost at least 30 pounds -- and kept it off for at least two years -- maintaining that weight loss required less effort as time went on. So if you crave the results reported by successful "losers" like these -- improved self-confidence, a boost in mood, and better health -- cultivate patience.

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. If I remember correctly, the last time I ordered it only took 3 or 4 days to get my shipment. Thanks for the review! This was helpful in determining which program to start! I also appreciate your thoroughness and videos. I hope to get fit during my weight loss journey and obtain my goal by next year.
Hi Rose — Glad you liked it, and best of luck with your weight loss journey! Is it possible to melt away one to two pounds of stubborn body fat every single day?
It sounds insane, but according to the scientific proof — and the thousands who have already done it themselves using this secret — the answer is YES. I have tried every diet on the market. This was my last resort. In fact, I have to remind myself to get everything in.
