About This Item
See questions and answers. I'm glad I got that one out of the way. It's a duplicate by the same member or copied text. East Dane Designer Men's Fashion. There is a potential effect on how, what, and where products may appear. The typical Nutrisystem program is 28 days long, and the new 5-Day Jumpstart Kit is designed to ease dieters in with a simple and easy plan. I also figured out that I like the Turboshake much better when I have blended it with the ice and water instead of just shaking it.
I did substitute Slim Fast shakes, when I ran out of Nutrisystem shakes. I still just added water instead of milk. They were still good. I will continue to buy this, as long as I am losing weight and feeling better with no indigestion. This is just so much easier than trying to figure out what to eat every day.
Better than a kick in the face with a golf shoe. Actually, this really isn't bad, as far as taste. It's DIET food - so keep that in mind. You're not going to experience euphoric bliss when eating it. You won't find a thick steak or gourmet pasta in this box. But neither will you find the fat and calories that are stuffed into these kinds of meals - so it's a trade-off. Fact is, you can eat this food, and if you follow the program, the weight melts away like ice cream in your hand.
I'm just under two weeks in, and I've lost 8 lbs. Bottom line - if you're finding yourself at a crossroads, where slimming down trumps fine dining, it can't hurt to try this out.
CarnivoreASaurus, July 21, Lost 9 pounds in less than 2 weeks. I ordered a kit for me and one for hubby, then went to Walmart for supplemental groceries. I am down 2 sizes and 9 pounds. We both lost inches, too! I ordered 4 more kits - cheaper from Walmart than at the N. Plan to continue to order this particular kit from WM until Christmas. Then, maybe 2x a month through spring. I didn't think I could lose weight at 80 years old, but it is happening! NelliefromTexas, October 5, This is a good way to try Nutrisystem out before committing to hundreds of dollars.
I felt better while on this. You'll get a number of pre-packaged foods that can be heated up or eaten cold out of the pouch or can. They all taste delicious, but are very small. The soup for example is about a cup. I didn't experience any missing items.
You will need to supplement Lunch and Dinner with either 2 cups of raw veggies or 1 cup of cooked veggies! I happen to be a big fan of zucchini, cauliflower, broccoli and squash so this isn't a problem for me but, it is something to keep in mind.
Breakfast was the maple oatmeal which was a little sweet and supposed to be cooked with fat free milk. I didn't have that so, it was cooked with water.
It might be less sweet with milk? For lunch, I had the tuna salad over chopped romaine with cucumbers. It was really tasty and I loved the water chestnuts in the package. I was really hungry by 3PM, but I remembered to make the Turboshake and was ok.
Dinner was the meat ravioli with zucchini. I really was not a fan, but I didn't feel hungry after so that was good. Breakfast was the biscotti bites, which I felt like were nice as a snack but maybe would not be satisfying for everyone.
They were sweet and crunchy, but I could tell they had packed some protein powder in them. I was really under calories yesterday, so I had a soft boiled egg a little after.
Lunch was the loaded mashed potatoes, that I mixed in a cup of steamed broccoli. I used to eat instant mashed potatoes as a very poor college student during cram sessions; these are worse. My favorite part was the broccoli. The whole thing had a very odd powdered cheese taste and the 'bacon bits' were super hard. I'm glad I got that one out of the way. Dinner was the Hearty Beef Stew. It took a little longer than the 90 seconds-ish to heat up but ended up not being too bad for canned soup. Breakfast was the Cinnamon Raisin Baked Bar.
Very strong protein bar taste. Not too sweet though. Lunch was broccoli cheese rice. Honestly, I was looking forward to this and I think I just can't get over the powdered cheese that keeps popping up. I ended up mixing in my broccoli and squash to help the taste. I was super hungry at that point so it did not feel like enough.
Dinner was the pasta fagioli, which I honestly thought was really good! I added a dash of garlic powder, but really enjoyed it overall. I had the rest of my steamed broccoli and squash from lunch with it. Breakfast is the Apple Strudel Bar-this is the best bar so far. I wish I had another one.
Its sweet but exactly what I was craving this morning! Lunch was my favorite so far too- white cheddar mac and cheese. Wish I was looking forward to another of these tomorrow instead of the chocolate fudge bar.
I also figured out that I like the Turboshake much better when I have blended it with the ice and water instead of just shaking it. It turned out light and fluffy!
I had the meatballs 4 with marinara over some zoodles and chopped red pepper. Side of broccoli slaw topped with salsa. It could have used more sauce and the meatballs were very soft. Day 5 Final Day: Peanut butter granola bar for breakfast was TINY and very sweet. Do I sound upset? A bar and a salad is not my favorite lunch ever. Dinner was the chicken pasta parmesan which was surprisingly good! Big squares of chicken and the sauce tasted like real cheese.
Anyway, this was my very long and in depth review. I hope it was helpful and gives you an idea of what the food is like. I would do it again but will probably give myself a break at this point. I didn't have a lot of social commitments during the week, but this would be hard to sustain had I been more active or coming and going through the week. I liked the portion control and didn't often feel hungry when I went to bed, but I just got tired of breakfast bars and processed cheese.
It was great to have veggies as sides at least. I also don't have a scale so, I have no idea if I lost any weight. It was just 5 days so, how much could it really be? I feel a little less puffy? Anyway, it was convenient and not very expensive. Would recommend for a quick reset, but you'll be burnt out by the end of the week probably. The tuna was disgusting, the beef stew looked like cat food and tasted horrible! It did help me understand that portion control is key as most of us I think tend to eat nearly 3 x what an average portion should be.
I really like not having to think about cooking and you do seem to be eating all the time I'm glad I did it but int he future I would have to buy the food separately because man some of it was really bad! I wanted to lose 10 pounds and try the Nutrisystem products and this was the perfect solution! The food was delicious and I lost 8 pounds!
I ordered a second week to lose the rest of my weight! This is my favorite of the Amazon available Nutrisystem 5 day system. This is a great way to try the Nutrisystem program before you commit to the entire program. It is easy to follow and all you need is to buy vegetables to add to your dinner.
Just received today, already perturbed. This is marketed as a complete Jumpstart. None of the above descriptions include information about this Nutrucrush shake. Obviously now I have to start without it and will not have maximum results. It works well if you stick to it. Food tastes good to me. See all 48 reviews. See all customer images.
