Optifast Review: Does it Work?

What is Take Shape for Life?

Jenny Craig
When entering the fat burning state, you may experience a headache. Progress is monitored during weekly one-on-one and group counseling, to help encourage healthy lifestyle changes. I like the latter better, even though the phone call was a lot more convenient. She is very impressed with the progress I have made losing weight. Hi Sherry, Congrats on your weight loss!

How Much Does Jenny Craig Food Cost in 2018?

The plan is laid out so simply that anyone can follow it. The Nutrisystem plan comes with a money back guarantee. If a person joins the program and does not like it he can receive his money back. The plan is so easy to follow. I have lost 22 pounds on the program while eating things like chocolate cake. Unlike Medifast, the food is delicious. If you are thinking of trying the plan but are afraid that you will not like the food please stop worrying.

The Nutrisystem plan comes with a great menu with foods on the menu that are very delicious. I have lost 32 pounds and finally feel like I may make my goal of losing I wasn't thrilled with the food when I started, but now that I can choose the foods that I really like it is much better.

I love the pizzas loaded with red pepper or onions and pineapple. We've had out of town company and been to many family gatherings, where I used to overeat. I find that when I have my own food that I like and because I am rarely hunger now, that the temptation to cheat is just not there. I also love most of the desserts, but who doesn't: Five years ago I lost 62 lbs on NS, but over the years I gained back 38 lbs.

Now I am back on the system and intend to stay until I reach my goal weight. My co-worker is using Jenny Craig but it was just to cost prohibitive for me. I've tried her meals and honestly didn't think they were as tasty as Nutrisystems are. Just 65 Pounds Left To Go 4 out of 5 stars. I am on my 10th day on Nutrisystem and I absolutely love it! The food is great and a lot better tasting than Jenny Craig.

I have lost 8 pounds so far and am really excited. I have 65 more to go to reach my goal weight. The website is full of good information and tons of motivation which I need and love!! Anyone can do this diet. At 32 years old, I had surpassed pounds and went on a diet with Slimfast Shakes and low fat dinners that I made. I was single at the time and had the time to prepare my own meals and exercise vigorously for about an hour 5 days a week.

Needless to say, I did lose 40 lbs in 3 months, but it was hard work and I was always hungry. I'm now 40 years old now and after several failed starts I decided to give Nutrisystem a go. Being married with 2 children, my time is much more limited now. Nutrisystem is perfect for this reason as I don't have to count calories — it's all done online for me. The meals are reasonably good and you can pretty much choose the meals you want.

The first month I went with the default menu and selected the meals I liked best for the second and third month. I'm following the menu strictly and my caloric intake is around calories a day. All in all, I have been on the diet for 42 days and I have lost 23 lbs and 3 inches off my waist! This program is well worth it! I needed to go on a diet. I had gained 25 pounds over the last year and I could not fit into any of my clothes. I did not want to go buy a whole new wardrobe when I already had a perfectly good one.

With Nutrisystem I have access to a website that allows me to track my weight loss progress. I enjoy logging onto the website and seeing how far I have come. I also get support from the website. I enjoy almost all of the foods Nutrisystem has to offer.

They all taste pretty good. The best part of Nutrisystem is that I have lost weight with a program that is extremely easy to follow. I liked many aspects of the diet; however, I thought the food portions were too small. Maybe I'm too used to supersizing everything? The Nutrisystem plan does work though. When I was using the plan I lost about fifteen pounds.

The plan was also very easy to follow. I did not have to weigh out food. I did not have to count calories. I did not have to figure out which foods to eat to lose weight.

I just had to follow the instructions that came with the plan and eat the food that the plan provided me with. When I joined the Nutrisystem plan I also received 24 hour access to the Nutrisystem web site where I could chat with someone for support daily if I needed to. Haven't used it, but its nice to know its there for me. The food was just as tasty as pre-cooked frozen meals you buy in the grocery store.

I enjoyed many of the foods that Nutrisystem offers. The desserts and snacks were delicious. The dinners are done very nicely with foods that are very tasteful and full of flavor.

The breakfasts were good I especially liked the pancakes. The lunches were also good. The thing I did not like about Nutrisystem was that the portions of foods they provided were too small. The program is extremely easy to use. Any man can join the program and expect to lose weight easily.

I joined the plan and Nutrisystem sent me dieting tools, instructions on how to use the plan and great tasting foods. I also have access to Nutrisystems website.

The website includes chat rooms, blogs, and group discussions about dieting. The website is a great place for me to go to receive support. I have not felt this energetic in awhile. I now have the energy to get through the day without feeling so tired. I even have enough energy to work out. Without the Nutrisystem plan I would still be overweight, unhealthy and unhappy.

Without Nutrisystem I would still be eating unhealthy and gaining weight instead of losing weight. I joined Nutrisystem two and a half months ago. When I first started the program it was an adjustment I had to get used to. I was used to overeating all of the time. With Nutrisystem the food portions are designed to be just right so a person gets the nutrition he needs and still loses weight.

I had to get used to eating the right sized portion instead of overeating. Once I adjusted to eating differently the plan started to really work. The plan is easy to follow and comes with instructions on how to do so.

I am losing weight easily. I am feeling healthier every day. I am enjoying the foods I am eating, and I am enjoying the compliments I am receiving on my weight loss. I joined the Nutrisystem plan because I knew I was headed in the wrong direction with my body weight. I decided to start going to a gym. However, I did not know how to start eating right.

I pick the food I want to eat from the menu that Nutrisystem provides. Nutrisystem also shows me how to plan what to eat for the day. The foods are really good. I love some of them, like most of them and only disliked one or two items out of the whole menu.

One of my favorite foods from Nutrisystem is their Mexican style tortilla soup, it's great. As far as diets go Nutrisystem is a great plan. When I was on the Nutrisystem plan it worked for me. I lost weight, learned to eat healthier and felt great. Nutrisystem is also extremely easy to follow. The plan comes with easy to follow instructions on how to use the program to work for you. When I was on the plan my wife and children would eat their food while I ate my Nutrisystem food.

Her food was hard to resist; however, I stuck to the Nutrisystem plan because their food also tastes good. I ate good food every day. Foods such as blueberry pancakes, blueberry muffins, honey mustard pretzel sticks, beef stew and broiled beef patties. Nutrisystem truly does go to great lengths to help make losing weight easy. I wanted to lose 20 pounds, but ended up shaving off 30 pounds thanks to Nutrisystem.

Nutrisystem is the best diet plan I have ever tried. I have tried to diet a few other times in my life but I could not stick to the diet. With Nutrisystem I do not have to learn recipes. I do not have to learn to eat better foods. I do not have to count calories. I do not have to weigh food. In order to help you choose the best meal plan for you, Nutrisystem provides a free diet analysis and plan recommendations, primarily based on your BMI Body Mass Index.

In addition to meal plans, Nutrisystem offers a diverse a la carte menu. With a la carte ordering, you can freely choose the meals in your order, get as much food as you need, and order as frequently as you want.

What makes Nutrisystem one of the best weight loss meal delivery services is its unique weight loss philosophy that has already helped millions of dieters of all shapes and sizes reach their weight goals.

The program is designed to help you get in the best shape of your life, regardless of your potential dietary requirements and restrictions and how many pounds your need or want to shed. However, there are three major problems with these types of regimes. First, if you are starving, you are not happy.

Second, if you lose weight by starving, the yo-yo effect is inevitable. Third, highly restrictive diets are bad for your health. Nutrisystem is the complete opposite of starvation diets. It allows you to eat 5 or 6 times a day and never feel hungry. If you are not hungry all the time, you do not feel like you are dieting at all and it is easier to stick to the regime and get in the desired shape. Plus, all the meals are healthy and balanced, so you can improve your overall health and well-being while shedding pounds.

They are rich in protein and fiber and contain low-glycemic carbs, which help keep your blood sugar in balance and reduce those nasty cravings. However, Nutrisystem provides more than just meals. Along with your regular deliveries of tasty food, you get handy grocery guides that help you eat properly outside the program, plenty of extra information that can help you better understand the weight loss programs, and expert guidance from counselors and dietitians, as well as helpful tools and trackers.

While researching for this Nutrisystem review, we were happy to see that the company has an excellent referral program. Let us begin with the basics. Nutrisystem menu features more than items. The items on the menu include breakfasts, lunches, dinners, snacks, shakes, and bars. Everything on the menu meets or exceeds the standards set by the US government in the Dietary Guidelines for Americans. Furthermore, all meals and snacks are free from artificial sweeteners, MSG, and trans fats. Most of the flavours are too sweet for me, but the coffee one is nice.

Works really well when you follow the program and have the 3 shakes and veggies only in the intensive period. I also meant to add that when I started the diet.

In the first month I lost 33 pounds and feel great. For me it was tough to follow the diet because I like to eat but I didn't cheat. I plan to go for another 4 weeks, so I will be on the diet for 8 weeks and then move off to eating healthy while continuing to work out. I would highly recommend this diet. It got me results faster than I thought it would.

His suits are impeccable. Name from growing up. I will wake up some and not be so picky cranky. I am starting Optifast today on a part-time basis, mixed with vegetable and fruit, until I get clinical help for a more structured guidance. I have already lost 35 kilos, without Optifast, but by simply eating a lot less, minimizing carbs and doing lots of swimming. I regained 5 kilos recently because I ate more and did a lot less swimming.

I need to loose two dress sizes before April, so I can fit into a coat I am wearing to a Wedding. So, I shall see if blending in Optifast, will help me reach my short term goal, then look at modifying what I do for long term weight maintenance. I would really like to lose another 40 or 45 kilos. I have been on optifast for 16 weeks. I started at and now weight The first two weeks are hard. I have now a total cholorestrol of I am on half blood pressure meds.

I now am in transition to food. Each week I learn so much in this program. Started the program 5 weeks ago. Ive lost 8kgs to date. Shakes are fine tasting, I stick to banana, chocolate, strawberry and caramel.

Others have put in flavour essences in to mix it up e. Soups are ok, I like vegetable best. Recipes for additional allowances are really nice and varied and Optifast Aust Forum members are always posting good food allowance recipes.

Drinking 2 litres of water a day is acheivable by having a water bottle nearby and drinking regularly. I have not cut out my morning coffee with 2SM, it hasnt affected the outcome. Ive been to dinner 3 times in the 5 weeks, I made healthy choices and didnt suffer. I exercise at least hours a week. He walks times per week an hr at a time.

I came into the program via a friend who is kg 6'2. I was 85 5'3. We stated together and post each other our daily weights to keep ourselves motivated and provide support. Both of us at times have had great weeks and slow weeks. We keep reminding each other its a marathon not a sprint. I m happy I started it.

Not hungry, or light headed. Ive stayed active and its working for both of us. I'm really happy I am learning to eat less on Optifast instead of being seduced by mega food company's intense marketing. I like the tastes and my nutritionist recommends the products as very balanced nutritionally. This is contrary to my many former diets. Loved the program and lost 50 lbs in 3 months without excersize.

I have kept it off. The secret is to eat better and often once you lose it. I also work out 3 days a week. I have never felt so good.

Re the entry in the list of 'Pros' for the Optifast program which states "Great tasting meal replacement shakes". I sincerely feel that statement is misleading. I appreciate and recognize that taste is subjective. To this end, I feel that the statement concerning the shakes being 'great tasting' which appears in the list of 'Pros' for the Optifast program should be removed OR come with a disclaimer re the subjectivity of taste OR that my description of my experience of the product tasting like wallpaper paste should be included in the list of 'Cons' for the Optifast program.

As I believe I would benefit from the Optifast program but find the flavour of wallpaper paste to be. As at February 29, I have purchased 24 different flavours of sugar free zero calorie syrup product. I have also purchased at least 20 sugar free zero calorie flavour enhancers, i.

While the latter type of products are less expensive than the former, it has been my experience that the latter products do not mask the taste as well as the former products.

Regardless of whether my suggestion is acted on, I would request that my feedback be posted on the list of feedback for the Optifast program.
