From Size 24 to Size 4: My Nutrisystem Review and Success Story

I just need a jump start because believe me I have tried everything. I think spending the money also gives me more of a incentive to really keep going. I won't screw up and waste my money. I haven't had any digestive problems as of yet so keeping my fingers crossed. I will post about my progress as time goes on. Thanks again for the input I will keep that in mind!!

I like the food so far and haven't had any issues. I want to lose 40 lbs and I weighed in Monday and I lost 7!! It is so easy to do this plan I only wish I would have done it sooner.

I know some of the weight is probably water but I'll take it! I have been working out about x week drinking lots of water, eating my meals, lots of fruits and veggies.

Feeling really good overall. This is really teaching me portion control. I was def eating way to big portions before. I will keep you posted on next weeks weigh in! Ok, here's my input: I have tried every diet out there-seriously.

Nutrisystem was horrible for me. I didn't like the food I rememeber one soup smelled exactly like dog food. I stuck to it for 2 weeks tho and didn't lose anything. I knew that I could not rely on pre-packaged foods and the only way I would be happy and get my healthy foods in would be WW.

It has the highest success rate for people losing and keeping it off, plus it's one that doctors will always recommend. I started in January and down 35lbs already. I can eat and drink what I want-which is the reality of life anyway, not eating pre-packaged foods! My opinion is if you try WW and it does nothing for you, then you din't follow the program exactly how you are supposed to. Lastly, to lose healthy you should lose no more than 2 lbs a week.

Slow but steady winds the race! You can lose fast other ways but it WILL come back. I have lost 7 lbs so far. I did a typo in my previous message of I am happy with this program.

I like the idea of no measuring food out. I know exactly what to eat to get my calories in. I really think this program teaches you portion control so when you do go back to eating the regular foods you know how much you should eat. I have been eating very healthy I also feel very good.

I have tried WW before and it didn't work for me. Not to say other people wouldn't have success For me though I think this is the way to go right now. I am doing it for 3 months and then going on maintenenance. Actually NS has lots of recipes and stuff for when you do maintenance to keep you within the calorie limits also. So far this is the only thing I have tried where I actually am losing every week and at a healthy loss of about 2 lbs a week! Good luck to you! Last edited by lam; at Iam, I'm not surprised that you're happy with NutriSystem.

What's not to be happy about? It's something new and exciting and you're losing weight! It's probably like a vacation too, from having to fix a meal from scratch. Here comes the big however. The truly important thing is the long term result. I remember when Oprah Winfrey was on NutriSystem. It was played up as the greatest thing going. After being on it for a long time, she came out on stage one day looking really great thin waistline etc. But what does she look like today?

I no longer watch TV but from magazine pictures she appears to be quite large again. In my opinion, it falls under the heading of "fad diet" and fad diets don't work in the long run. That doesn't mean that you shouldn't enjoy it for the time being. Just be cautious in what you expect for the long run. Your post caught my eye. I have been on Nutrisystem for almost three weeks and have lost a little over 5 pounds. I am only planning on being on the plan for 28 days with a goal of losing a total of 10 pounds.

It has taught me to look at portion sizes in a whole new light. I have become a fan of sugerfree gelatin and drink mixes. The big thing for me is the mixing of protein, fruit and vegetables in a certain order. I also plan to use prepackaged foods available in the supermarket to replace the Nutrisystem entrees later. I hope I can mention this on this board because something else has become a huge help in logging my weight daily. I have an iPhone and there is a free app that is wonderful in entering foods I eat daily, logging exercise and setting a weight loss goal.

It tells you how many more calories are available after logging lunch or your snacks, etc. It is easy to use and helped me get past a weight plateau this week. The reviews have been glowing for Lose It! That's great to hear! I am at a 10 lb loss now. I am very happy with NS! The third and final phase is said to allow adherents to be able to maintain a balance between food intake and calories burned. One panelist voiced these concerns: I also don't favor a very low-calorie approach for everyone.

Claiming to be as easy as , the Curves Complete program focuses on fitness, meal plans, and coaching to help dieters reach their goal weight. Curves began in as a fitness center designed specifically for women and evolved into a total weight loss program over the years.

Though the company divides its plan into three phases, each of phase in turn has phases, specially the meal program. The Atkins diet , officially the Atkins Nutritional Approach, is based on the theory that weight can be managed effectively with a low-carb, high-protein diet.

The program works in four phases. The induction stage which is commonly thought of as the overall basis of the diet is the strictest, aimed at discovering the maximum number of grams of carbs known as the personal carb balance the dieter can eat in order to lose weight.

Atkins considers the final phase to be your lifestyle change, a permanent phase in which the dieter can successfully sustain the changes he or she has been gradually working toward. Overall, this diet was by far the most controversial amongst our panelists, resulting in an approval range split almost 50— I am also concerned that some folks who are predisposed to kidney stone formation or kidney disease [might, with] such high-protein diets and not drink[ing] enough water…have complications.

Essentially Nutrisystem revolves around the idea that perfectly portioned prepared meals will help you lose and keep weight off. Dieters begin by choosing a meal plan that works best for their lifestyle and situation by answering a few survey questions. Dieters then handpick the entire menu, with meals delivered via standard shipping. After spending time eating Nutrisystem products, dieters go into a transition period where they are mixing their own food with the company's offerings.

There are also options for tailored exercise plans and online community support to help keep the dieter on track. The program is backed by dieticians and a medical advisory board who claim to have made Craig products as healthy as possible. The entire program is based on a dietary volumetrics approach, which basically states that dieters eat higher amounts of low calorie food to help them feel fuller longer.

Based on real food and not promoting any specific products or supplements, the DASH Diet helps dieters plan out their meals without the hassle of counting calories. After signing up and entering personal information that indicates that they wish to lose weight, DASH program followers will get a personally calculated calorie intake count that allows them to lose one to two pounds a week. The idea is that one just has to eat the correct numbers and sizes of servings that they recommend and not have to track every detail.

Tom Moore says that not only will this diet help you change the way you eat and lose weight, it will help you lower blood pressure as well.
