The food they sent me was food I could not eat, such as sea food, etc. That's quite a weight loss in a short period of time. Message 9 of 10 Views. Try it, you will like it, especially with Marie putting the foods together. I have always stayed in shape following my own eating plan which is all fresh foods. She lost the weight when she was on Dancing With the Stars not from eating NutriSystem garbage food. I'm tired of seeing it every time I switch over to QVC.
There is nothing healthy about this food. Some of it is high in sodium and truly healthy food is as close to natural, off the vine as you can get. Nutrisystem packaged food is not that, or even close. As someone who has struggled with weight for a lifetime, I won't discourage anyone from taking a step toward taking control of their weight or eating habits. And if this program gives you the boost you need to get started, so be it and I wish you success.
But I think a lot of people start some program like this, and think they are eating 'healthy'. You will have to learn to control your own portions and not open a box designated as the 'right' amount for a serving. I had a friend do this. The food they send isn't great tasting or nutritionally great. She spent hours everyday cutting up the gallons of salad and veggies she needed to add. This isn't worth it. If you aren't willing to do all the extra work, this plan probably isn't for you.
No matter what route you go, best of luck eating healthy. From my own experience, you can lose weight by eating normal non diet plan foods that you like, but drastically cutting the caloric intake of those foods. Rather than do this, I'd check out the Atkins frozen breakfasts and dinners. I am a diabetic that must cut carbs. When I don't feel like cooking, the Atkins frozen meals are my "go to foods". The dinners are tasty and low carb. I add a kale salad or some brussel sprouts or broccoli.
I tried a few Nutrisystem foods that I bought at Big Lots a few years ago, for days when I didn't have time to cook. They were awful and certainly not "healthy" and for me they were really too high in carbs. I find it hard to believe any celebrities actually eat Nutrisystem foods. I am quite sure they have personal chefs that prepare their food. They can certainly afford to do that. If you do decide to order it, good luck to you and I hope you like the food.
When you purchase straight from the company I think you get to choose your foods. I need to do something to lose, as I have a number of health problems and need to lose as well.
Try it, you will like it, especially with Marie putting the foods together. I hear it is beyond horrible. Shame on Marie for peddling this unhealthy product that most people can not even get down. I lost 25 pounds 2 different times on it in the 80's. I do remember it is very salty and couldn't do it now for that reason. If you order it from Nutrisystem you can get the My Way Program where you select your own food. It does cost more when you choose your own food but that's so much better than taking whatever they decide to send you.
I think the food is good and I didn't think it was overly salty. It IS a diet, so the portions are small, but it's good and you won't go hungry. In fact you'll be eating frequently. If you remember that it's a diet and not a five star restaurant I think you'll be pleased. If you decide to try it, best of luck! As with all weight loss programs A few years back I lost 60 lbs by doing just that I put it back on If you do a little research, and are willing to put in a little extra time in the kitchen, you can make your own "nutrisystem" meals My sister and two of my friends tried it and none of them could get past the horrible food.
If you order from their website I think they have two versions: They contain different foods with the ""fresh"" being more pleasant though still bad. I have always stayed in shape following my own eating plan which is all fresh foods. I would never eat such unhealthy food with additives such as Nuti System and Jenny Craig. My suggestion to you is Weight Watchers.
All you foods are fresh not frozen and much healthier. No way would I be a slave to some company's frozen prepackaged foods. I don't really need it that bad to subject myself to all the additives and expense, but I was wondering if it worked as well and as easy as they claim.
I did do some googling to find out what others who have tried it thought, and the reviews were about half and half. Thank you, Circles, for the Wal-Mart info, that's something to keep in mind, and thank you Gemmy for the buddy bucks offer, so nice of you! I think you may be right, Desertdi, that you could possibly create your own meals at home, and probably a lot healthier without the additives, which kinda scare me. Marie looks great, but I've always wondered how Dolly lost all her weight and has stayed so thin!
I ordered a big box of Nutrisystem from Q one time. Tried one snack item and sent it all back as I found the snack dry and tasteless. You still have to buy groceries to be on the program, fruits, veggies, etc. Also, something about the unrefrigerated entres seemed a little gross to me.
Bulk them up with some non-starchy vegetables or a salad and you have a huge plate of food for lunch or dinner and very few calories. Add some daily fruit, light yogurt, some well-chosen treats, lots of water, keep a daily food diary to monitor your calories and stay within your allotment and viola!
There are lots of blogs, vlogs and youtubers that offer food finds and hints for success to help you along the way. You can try myfitnesspal.
