This aspect is another benefit of using MWLC meal plans. Best of luck if you decide to try it! There's no reason to be afraid of eating fats—as long as they're the right fats. Little touches like jalapeno and cilantro add loads of flavor to this skillet supper. A high-fiber, high-flavor soup recipe is the perfect fuel on a chilly night. You will not loose weight if you do not take these supplements.
Dan Marino , the legendary Miami Dolphins Quarterback, was talking about how he had lost more than 20 pounds on Nutrisystem, and for some reason, his words stuck with me see the commercial below. Marino was one of the biggest names in the NFL as a kid, and here he was on TV talking about a diet plan that had worked for him, and he actually seemed genuine and believable. Whatever the reason, I was convinced it was what I needed.
During my research, I found a lot of positive reviews about Nutrisystem, and I knew it was time to give it a try! My family and I. I was able to lose 30 pounds with Nutrisystem, and have been able to keep it off by making simple lifestyle changes.
It was affordable, convenient, tons of people reported great results online, and they guaranteed the weight loss. After doing a little research, I decided it was right for me and decided to sign up. I was probably around pounds when I finally decided to jump on the bandwagon, and my weight was going nowhere but up at that point. Nowadays, I try to stay as close to as possible, and I am usually able to maintain that goal, give or take a pound or two.
That being said, I still utilize diets like Nutrisystem from time-to-time, when I feel like I need a re-charge, or to quickly burn off some extra weight. After reaching my goal, I transitioned to a plan that includes their Turbo Shakes, healthy foods that I prepare on my own, and a regular exercise routine. While their Basic plan worked for me for me, they have several options to choose from.
The big takeaway here: Pick a plan that fits your budget and dietary needs they have specialty plans for vegetarians and diabetics , and know that ALL of their plans are going to help you lose weight when used correctly. There is a ton of variety, the meals are quick and easy to make, and they even have frozen options that take the quality up another notch.
You can view their full menu at the official Nutrisystem website. Ultimately, I wanted to make a goal of losing about 10 pounds per month. For me, this was very doable following their diet plan. The results are going to be different for everyone, but if you have 20, 30 lbs, or more to lose, then I would expect to be on the diet for at least two months. In my case, once I reached my weight loss goal, I had established a routine for how much I needed to eat each day, so I was comfortable developing a plan of my own.
As someone who has lost more than 30 pounds using the Nutrisystem program, I can tell you that it absolutely works. I highly recommend it to anyone who has 10 or pounds to lose. Nutrisystem Turbo 13 is one of the most effective ways to lose weight, and is a great fit for anyone who wants an easy plan to follow. I've used their plan now several times over the years, and it's one of our highest rated weight loss products here on the site. I really liked your story. I am in day 2 of my Turbo Program.
My history with NS is in I had my 3rd child, 12 months and one day after my 2nd. My weight on delivery date was My normal weight was I went down to Lowest in my life, and I felt good. I did feel healthier at which I managed to maintain for 20 something years. In 3 years I graduated a size I weighed when I graduated. I still weigh 10 years later and feel awful. I too started to eat out and drink wine.
I only hope I have the will power to succeed this time. I feel I have to become a hermit and say no to going out with my friends, neighbors and family. But now I am older and I dread the fact it may take me years to lose all this fat. But I have only myself to blame. Reading your story has given me some inspiration. I am going to make 10 weight loss increments only as to not get discouraged.
Thank you for sharing your story. Hi Cheryl- Thanks for reading, and sharing…What an inspiring story! I still have a drink occasionally, but try to keep it limited to social gatherings and not an everyday thing. In any case, best of luck with your weight loss journey! Norman, you seem to know the NS diet very well. I have been on this diet around 7 years ago and I see a few new changes this time. My order has arrived and I unpacked my Turbo Box yet did not keep that food separate, and now i am really unsure of what was in it for my first week….
Best of luck with the program. Hope that helps -NS. You want to be at your goal weight then, not wishing you did something about it yrs ago. No, you cannot pound them back, but I am not sure why you would want to anyway.
Co-workers always ask me to go out for a drink and they order whatever and I order a diet coke. You could blame it on medication if you want. When I go out to eat or go to cookouts, etc. I order a meat and a vegetable with a diet soda. No potato or anything. At a cookout it would be a burger or chicken with no bread, and a tossed salad or veggie. You CAN do it. You just have to order carefully. I wish you luck. You can do, I know you can.
It is so nice to read a positive article about Nutrisystem. You are so right about your body becoming used to the smaller portions. Like anything, your body goes through an adjustment period, but after a few days, it is quite easy. With frequent snacks between meals, as well as plenty of fluids, you are eating pretty much whenever you feel hungry. Hi, thanks for the great review! Thanks for the nice comment: Excited to hear how Nutrisystem goes for you — let us know!
Hi Ellen — You definitely need to talk with your doctor before trying Nutrisystem or any weight loss plan with your health issues, but they do offer a plan for people with diabetes. I would recommend checking out their site to learn more about the different plans they offer. They also offer snacks and shakes as options over the course of the day, so that helps with the extra cravings too. Hope that helps, and best of luck with your weight loss journey!
Someone in my Myspace group shared this website with us so I came to give it a look. Exceptional blog and brilliant design and style. Thanks for the kind words and for visiting the site — let me know your Twitter handle so I can return the favor! Those first 2 weeks i dropped 13 lbs, but that third week i lost maybe 1 lb.
I was only eating the provided meals the first two weeks usually around only calories per day obviously that was unhealthy, so i added in a few snacks to put me right around calories per day. But unfortunately that has resulted in minimal weight loss. Did you have plateaus like this? And how did you over come these stalls?
I did just purchase an elliptical and also a stationary bike, but only on day 2 with those. Your review was wonderful and very well written, so thank you!
Hi Julie- Thank you so much for sharing your story, and way to go for making it through your first month! I think the calorie restriction is the hardest part about Nutrisystem, and why now I typically only do the diet for a month or two and then really focus on just eating right and getting enough exercise after that.
For me, the approach after Nutrisystem has been intermittent fasting IF. That said, I have had a lot of success with it, and find that I can maintain a healthy weight for long stretches of time when using it.
I started with the turbo charge and continued now for almost 3 weeks. I have only lost 3 lbs. When I emailed a counselor they said that was normal and I was doing well.
Big hope very disappointed. In any case, hope the rest of your month goes well, and best of luck moving forward. I just started Nutrisystem. I always lost weight on the low carb diet when I was younger. But the fat intake was not good. Just to avoid all the carbs… Did you or anyone else have a issue with how many carbs are in each meal?
Is this ok lol… Please someone assure me all the carbs are ok! Thanks for visting, and best of luck with your first month! Thanks for the excellent review and videos. Excited to see what kind of progress I can make. Hi Krystal — thanks for visiting the site, and taking the time to read my review and watch the videos.
Always happy to hear that it helped! Thanks for the great info and for sharing your story! Thanks for the kind words, June! Congrats on taking the first step and best of luck with Nutrisystem — hope it goes well!
I mastered more new things on this fat reduction issue. An enormous reduction in junk food, sugary foods, fried foods, sugary foods, beef, and white flour products may perhaps be necessary. Holding wastes unwanted organisms, and wastes may prevent ambitions for fat-loss. While specific drugs for the short term solve the situation, the unpleasant side effects are certainly not worth it, plus they never present more than a short-term solution.
Many thanks sharing your thinking on this weblog. Thanks for the input Saul. Have you ever considered creating an ebook or guest authoring about Nutrisystem on other sites? I know my readers would appreciate your work. If you are even remotely interested, feel free to send me an email. Hi Lance — I actually do have an eBook in the works, so stay tuned for that! I just wanted to say that this post is awesome, well written and lots of useful Nutrisystem info.
Looking forward to my first shipment. Hi Corburt — Thanks for the kind words, and best of luck with your first month — hope it goes well! I just wanted to offer you a huge thumbs up for the great information you have right here on this post.
I will be returning to your site for more soon! This blog looks exactly like my old one! Great choice of colors! Really inspired by your story — thanks for sharing! I am planning to start Nutrisystem after the New Year. Hi Erin — Thanks so much for the positive feedback. The first time I ever used Nutrisytem, which was many years ago at this point, I think I was one it for 4 months.
I had a lot more weight to lose then; now when I sign up, I usually use it for a month, maybe two at the most. To lock in the auto delivery deal, you have to commit to two months, so if you hit your weight loss goals after month 1, I recommend switching your order to just the Turbo Shakes — that will ensure you lock in the most savings, and also helps to keep you on track once you start transitioning off the program.
As I have said before, you have to be committed to the program to get results, but as long as you follow their plan you will lose weight! Anyways, best of luck and please let us know how it goes: Thanks for sharing your story. Drinking over ounces and eating tons of leafy greens. I did NS about 4 years ago lost almost This past July was told my chloerstral and blood pressure was too high for 28 year old.
So black Friday I ordered when prices decreased. Hi Amanda — Thanks for visiting and reading my story. Hope it goes as well this time around. Thanks for sharing your superb review. You have a lot of good info here. I am looking for a diet to try just after the new year, and this might be the one.
Either way, appreciate all of the details you shared. Thanks, just what I was looking for. I have about 20 pounds to lose — is this doable in a month or two? Hi Sam — Thanks for the positive feedback. Losing 20 pounds is definitely doable with Nutrisystem, but I would budget at least two months.
I signed up for Nutrisystem this week, and I am really hoping that I have the same results. I think my first shipment should arrive just before Christmas, so think I will get started right after the holiday. Thanks so much for the review — definitely gives me hope!
Hi Kris — congrats on signing up — while results will vary for everyone, I truly believe that you will lose a lot of weight if you follow the program — so stick with it, and let us know how it goes. They try to rip you off when quit their auto delivery program. Very very unpleasant people to deal with. They shipped me stuff 3 days after I had already cancelled and had a confirmation number stating I cancelled. They refused to turn the shipment around or to take it back and are trying to create some kind of lie that I created a 2nd account in November and they only cancelled one account.
The only thing I did in November was update my credit card expiration date which I regret. If I guaranteed no more shipments are coming to my name or my address that should be the end of the story, not with them!
I am fighting them through my credit card company but please be aware of whatever traps they have in store for any of you. Hi Troy — Sorry to hear that that was your experience. It was actually a customer service rep who told me I could switch from the meal delivery to just the Turbo Shakes after my first month on the program to lock in the auto-delivery savings without having to commit to another month of food.
In any case, I hope you are able to get things resolved! I started the program today, January 1st. My resolution is to feel better about myself, but do it in a healthy way that had structure. How much and when I should be eating vegetables, and ideas on what to eat if you have to attend a social function or business based meeting that involves food.
Thanks for posting a well written, and information overview of this program. I have three questions and maybe one is a question for a NS counselor… 1. Or can tomatoes, cukes, etc. Also, plain or with some sort of dressing? How many turbo shakes can you have per week… and when can they be consumed? Thanks in advance …. Hi Tami — Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to comment! I always add extra veggies to my greens and have found the only thing you really need to watch out for is the salad dressing.
But for me, cucumbers, tomatoes, etc. If Medical Weight Loss Clinic determines that a 1, calorie per day diet is right for you, this is a sample menu: This question is asked for each meal plan and nutritional supplement that you will find on the market. The answers to this question may be given by customers who have used MWLC weight management programs or their products. Based on the success stories that you can find on the company website, MWLC diet programs are excellent and provide immediate results.
To avoid subjectivity, you may search for other reviews and opinions regarding MWLC meal plans on different website specialized in weight management products and meals. On third-party websites, most of the MWLC reviews are not positive. According to these negative comments and complaints, MWLC meal plans do not bring anything new. Even though MWLC claims that their diets should help in weight loss programs, they have indulgent recipes such Shrimp and Broccoli Fettuccine.
One of the benefits is represented by the customized meal plans that are designed to satisfy the need for each client. Another benefit speaks to the fact that you may prepare your meals based on their recipes. Since you buy the ingredients for those recipes, then you know the source of the ingredients.
Most of the food that is listed on MWLC website is based on fresh food. This aspect is another benefit of using MWLC meal plans. Searching on the Internet, you will find numerous opinions and comments related to the results provided by MWLC meal plans.
Besides the positive success stories that can be found on the company website, you can also find several negative reviews and comments about these diet programs. In fact, they say that the length of the program is determined by each client based on the amount of weight you need to lose and how quickly you want to lose it. They say that weight loss amounts vary with each client and depends on many factors, including how strictly you follow the Medical Weight Loss Clinic meal plan as well as other factors that could delay or increase weight loss.
Medical Weight Loss Clinic 3-day cleanse plan represents a program for 3 days with meals that include 3 oranges, salad and red meat during. The aim of this diet is to cleanse your body. Since MWLC programs are based on both health food meals and nutritional supplements, you may choose to add to your food any supplement that may help you with your diet.
Besides real food and nutritional supplements, MWLC programs include also medically supervised programs. These medically supervised programs are implemented by experts that work for MWLC.
These medical consultants should help you with a custom plan according to your needs to reduce your body weight.
Medical Weight Loss Clinic nutrition plans are recommended after a consultation with each patient. This is since each person needs a different diet plan to reduce their weight. The ingredients that are included in nutritional supplements are not mentioned.
Only after you decide to order some of their nutritional supplements, you may then find out the ingredients in the supplements.
Using Medical Clinic weight loss diets should be very easy, since you have to use some meals based on real food and nutritional supplements. Recipes are presented on the company website. To prepare them, you just must buy the necessary ingredients and follow the preparation suggestions. MWLC programs also include nutritional supplements that should be taken based on suggestion use.
As far as the diet and exercise plan offered by Medical Weight Loss Clinic, there are no real side effects. You make and eat your meals with food you purchase at the local grocery store. Nutrisystem has a similar program, although it does require you to use pre-packaged food that you purchase from the company.
They offer group meetings on a weekly basis where you weigh-in and are provided group as well as individual counseling to help you meet your weight loss goals. You are also able to pay extra for access to an online program that helps you track your food and exercise. However, because there is so little information on what is in the Medical Weight Loss Clinic supplements, it is impossible to adequately compare it to other supplements. There are no prices available for clinic visits and there is no information regarding the cost of supplements or food items each month.
We found one lawsuit against the company bought by U. This employee suffered from bipolar disorder. If you search for product warnings regarding MWLC products and diet plans, you will discover that product warnings are missing, too. But in case you are suffering from any chronic disease or you are under medication, you may ask your physician before use MWLC products. The program simply provides you with a Medical Weight Loss Clinic diet plan and allows you to work with a personal trainer to create an exercise program.
There are supplements that are recommended as part of the program, but no information is available regarding what the supplements are or what they cost. The supplements are to be taken three times each day and contain calcium caseinate and soy protein isolate.
This provides your body with a sustained release of amino acids. Soy protein isolate has been linked to lowered risks of heart disease. There has been some research that shows that soy protein isolate may not be as beneficial to health as natural soy, however. The staff is really helpful in fully understanding the program and the reasoning behind it.
You do this by visiting the center at least three days a week every day for the first two weeks rather than doing it all on-line. This makes the nutritionists your accountability partners…I think I can put up with a limiting diet, no eating out, no alcohol for 15 weeks to take off the 60 lbs they have guaranteed my doctor thinks so too!
So, should you spend your money on the Medical Weight Loss Clinic? Well, we like that they offer a virtual program and that we found some positive customer comments. On the other hand, we also like that the program is supervised by medical professionals. One of the products we like the most is Burn TS.
The formula contains four clinically-tested ingredients, that have been shown to promote weight-loss by accelerating metabolism and igniting fat loss. Choosing the right weight-loss system can be confusing and often times frustrating.
Let us know a little more about you and your goals. Medical weight loss is based on scientific studies which prove that lifelong weight management is effective only when the behaviors that cause obesity are addressed.
The features with Medical Weight Loss Clinic include initial assessment, individual counseling, BMI calculations, community support, nutritional guides and eating plans and supplements.
Choosing the right product is the 1 question asked by DietSpotlight readers. We recommend trying any product before buying it and know that finding a product with a sample offer is near impossible - so we created our own product, Burn TS, with scientifically backed ingredients. The program was developed and is supervised by physicians. There is science to support reducing caloric intake. If you visit a local office, the cost depends on your individual plan and additional services.
There are two ways to follow Medical Weight Loss Clinic. You can visit one of the offices and follow the custom plan. The other option is to follow at-home program from Medical Weight Loss Clinic. As with any weight management plan, there are concerns.
Women who are pregnant or nursing, those with health conditions, anyone taking prescription medications or under 18 years of age should contact a healthcare professional prior to starting any weight-loss program. The virtual diet from Medical Weight Loss Clinic is a tool used to change existing behaviors toward eating.
Each plan is tailored to the individual. In some instances, your insurance may cover a portion of your Medical Weight Loss Clinic visit. Reach out to your insurance provider for details.

Do Not Send Email Notifications. Spoke with three reps and was given the run around about monthly membership prices and product pricing , reps were quick to transfer me to a clinic to get me to see a consultant all I wanted to know way the membership fee , then the clinic states that each membership fee is customized according to the individual , thank goodness I read the reviews before signing my money away , not trust worthy if you ask me.
Will try something else. I lost 5lbs on their beef and greens 3 day diet and then nothing else. All they did was took my blood pressure and asked if I was eating all the food. And sold me their products. The blood test showed my thyroid off the chart and the Dr. What a waste of money. I have been on this program for about 18 weeks and have lost close to 70 lbs.
My wife signed up at the same time, and she has not lost very much at all. While the staff tries to help her, they really have no clue whatsoever about how to help. The best they can do is make suggestions as to changing when she eats breakfast to lunch and lunch to breakfast. They hit a hurdle and they freeze like a deer in head lights. Yeah I found that there are times when I needed to change when I eat. I actually try to eat all of my food before 3 or 4 p.
Leaving maybe 2 extra vegetable choices in the evenings if I am still really hungry. So I eat at about At least 1 hour, for 1 meal. Something that I found is I have my fruit servings in the morning. I know that they did not adovocate for watermelon on the diet, but I have two cups of watermelon each morning with a flavoured coffee. Usually Vanilla Hazelnut, with sweetener, and a little milk and I find that this curbs my appetite. It seems to be working for me.
Also all of my water and fluids are done before 3: I also bike every day depending on my arthritis. Some days when I am really feeling well, I bike around the track near my home. I have lost 40 lbs already, and I am following the diet on my own, since I lost the weight years ago and completed the maintenance program. I find that journalling every day what I eat, and graphing my results makes a big difference.
Meet with a nutrionist near my home to monitor my success with her. I am currently on the MWLC and have lost 8lbs in 3 weeks. I am happy that I have lost the weight but thought that I would have lost a little more by now.
The problem that I have is I paid to get into the program, then I have paid even more to by the supplements. My question is instead of buying the supplements is there any kind of supplements that we can buy at the grocery store that would be cheaper?
Like Slimfast bars or Special K bars? Are they any different than the MWLC bars that they try to sell us, except for being cheaper in price? Simply truth organic protein bars. The double chocolate have the same calories and protein amount as the bars they sell. Also there is a website called family bariateic that sells the exact products as Mwlc but way cheaper.
They recommend and apparently require three servings a day of their own supplements that are high in protein. If you prefer buying your own, let the staff know.
Just make sure they have similar nutritional information. Staff and customer service is poor , atleast at michigan centers. They have bunch of trainees and they do not know much about the program. Each day you visit and every one of them will say something different. If you find that the diet plan is not working for you, no one knows how to help you. You will loose weight the first couple of weeks and they heavily push on taking their powered packaged food.
They taste bad and never even close to real food. You are forced to take atleast 3 a day as a meal replacements to get their guaranteed weight loss. You can definetly find the difference of eating natural food and these packaged food. You will not loose weight if you do not take these supplements.
