When it comes to weight loss, both Nutrisystem and the ketogenic diet are about the hottest things going right now.

Does Nutrisystem Diet Work? My Review – My Story

The cost varies based on things like the plan you choose -- such as for women or men, vegetarians, older adults, or people with diabetes. The program has an online community and web-based tools, as well as help by phone. You may face a challenge when you go off the program and have to make more food choices on your own.

The program provides information on how to do this. Controlling calories and portions and eating regular meals is a healthy formula that should result in weight loss while on the plan.

It can be harder to make the transition to eating "real food" when you get closer to your weight-loss goal and don't rely on meals already made for you. Overall the diet is healthy for people with conditions like heart disease , high blood pressure , high cholesterol , and diabetes. Meals are low in sodium, saturated fats , and trans fats , and include high-fiber whole grains, smart carbs, healthy fats , lean protein, and a wide variety of foods.

The Nutrisystem diet is the ultimate in convenience. The real question is whether you can continue to lose weight or maintain your weight when you are no longer relying on the prepackaged foods.

The Promise Nutrisystem aims to simplify weight loss. You're discouraged from eating out, and advised to mostly avoid alcohol. For desserts and snacks, you might have brownies, cake, or cookies. Overall, the foods and meal plans focus on: Packaged foods or meals: This makes you excited to try new things, and you also get a chance to figure out which things you like best.

But keep track of what you like best, because after that you should… Stick with what you like. There was a whole month where I had only two lunch options, and it worked out great. Those days never went as well as the days I ate breakfast. Keep your lunch meals at work. If you work out of the home and your office has space, keep your lunch meals at work. Spice up the protein shakes. The protein shakes were one of my favorite things, but I liked them even more when I added little flavor extras to them.

A couple frozen strawberries or some lemon juice to the strawberry flavor. Some espresso or a little vanilla extract to the coffee flavor, or some cinnamon to the chocolate flavor.

We will keep you informed on her progress. Thank you so much. Hi Shirley — What an inspirational story — really hoping she has success! 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. My doctor is on the program, her husband and son! Notify me of new posts by email.
