What You Can Eat and What You Can't

Nutrisystem

I would just take the easy way out and not worry about the effects it was having on my weight and health. The moment I realized that I wanted to lose weight was when my friends and I were on a camping trip. We went tubing and I could not get myself into the tube.

My friends and my husband all tried to help me get up on the tube but it was impossible because of my size and lack of upper body strength. I felt so embarrassed and ashamed that I had let myself get to be so heavy and unable to do the things that I used to enjoy. Being overweight for such a long period of time left me feeling defeated. I always knew that if I would just eat less and move more I would lose weight but I never felt motivated to do it.

In December of I decided to start using Nutrisystem to lose weight. Up until that point I had been overweight nearly all of my adult life and much of my childhood too. I was average weight for about a year in my early twenties when I met my husband. Once we started dating and we were happy, then the weight crept back up and reached its peak almost a year before I began my weight loss journey with Nutrisystem.

At one point I was over pounds. I did some dieting and exercise and got down to pounds which was my starting weight for Nutrisystem. Before receiving my first month of food I began to walk with my husband on the weekends.

At first it was quite a struggle to keep a good pace for an hour. We worked at it and I got more endurance and strength. I worked up to walking miles and miles without any trouble at all now. I also got some workout DVDs and some hand weights to use at home. When I signed up for Nutrisystem I committed to changing my life once and for all.

Nutrisystem is the only weight loss program I have ever participated in. I have tried counting calories and that does work for me. I just never stuck to it long enough to see any significant results. I have an addictive personality. Food has been my drug for a long time.

I knew it was going to be difficult to kick the habit but Nutrisystem gave me the tools I needed to be successful. Some people prefer to have one final binge but I did not. I got my first order just before the Christmas holidays. Some people are able to allow some planned indulgences but I am not one of those people. One thing I want to emphasize in this Nutrisystem review, is that before Nutrisystem I felt sluggish and tired most of the time.

I do have a very busy schedule and get up super early but there is no reason for me to be tired all the time. Nutrisystem helped me to increase my fruit and vegetable intake. I hardly ate any of them before.

Now I have four servings of veggies and at least 2 fruits each day. I am able to make it through the day without feeling sleepy at all. I am always able to keep up with friends and family. I do not get out of breath or tired when we are doing physical activity now. A few months into my weightloss journey I started to get a lot of compliments.

Everyone was noticing the improvement and letting me know that I was looking good. I was encouraged to keep going with the compliments. I kept telling people to just wait and see what I looked like when I finally reached my goals. How Successful is Nutrisystem? Actually I continued with that trend all the way through to the end when I reached my goal.

I could lose more weight now if I chose to by following the same plan. Nutrisystem really does make it easy for you. They have it all planned out and show you how to be successful when trying to lose weight. Nutrisystem suggests you work out each day for 30 minutes. I have followed those guidelines. I do a DVD each morning before work. The DVD is anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour. I like to vary my workout so that I do not get bored doing the same things over and over.

I have some stress in my life and exercise is my stress relief. I lost over pounds — Nutrisystem Results. I lost over pounds using Nutrisystem and surprisingly I do not have a lot of hanging extra skin. My Nutrisystem before and after photo proves that.

I attribute that success to my exercise. I know that the exercise has given me the shape that I have now and the muscles that keep me energetic and healthy. I have read a number of Nutrisystem reviews where people say that Nutrisystem is hard. Honestly it was never hard for me to stick to the Nutrisystem plan. I believe that it was easy for me because of the results that I was seeing. You are able to customize the plan to your personal likings and tastes.

I am pleased with the amount of flexibility that Nutrisytem provides. I like to eat a variety of foods and with Nutrisystem I am able to do that and still lose the weight. I am an all or nothing person so I was all in with this program and it provided me with the results that kept me motivated to stick with it until I reached my goal and even beyond into maintenance. From Size 24 to Size 4 — Is Nutrisystem worth the money? I started out wearing a size 24 and now I have shorts as small as a 4.

Nutrisystem is worth it. Each week when I stepped on that scale and noted another loss in weight I felt proud. Having success is very motivational. I did hit some bumps in the road. Sometimes life throws us curve balls.

So no matter what happened in my life or at work, I just kept on keeping on. I like the structure that Nutrisystem provides. I like eating on schedule.

I am working with adjusting to everyday food lifestyle. But yet, I do not want to give up my program. I believe this will keep me on track with keeping my weight under control. Thank you for my delays in my order. I tried Nutrisystem and found out I am allergic. I tried returning the items as they indicated there was a full refund policy, and they told me I couldn't.

I called over seven times during the next 30 days and they were not cooperative or helpful at all. I got transferred around many times, and never had any help at all. I ended up moving, and canceled my card. Two months after that they tried charging my credit card and claim they shipped product, which I didn't order.

I never received product because I had moved. Very poor customer service! They try and snag you in and force you to keep buying, even if you don't like the product and even if you are allergic to it! I have told a lot of people about this horrifying experience and they are all appalled and said there are much better programs out there!

We are sorry to hear that you are unable to eat our food and we apologize for the poor service you've received. We will be looking into this and reaching out soon. I have spoken with Chanta in her role as counselor. I was impressed with the interest and patience she posses. I am now able to form a more comprehensive plan moving forward with my required personal participation with the Nutrisystem to reach my weight loss goal. I am enthusiastically encouraged with my decision to take on this venture for my future.

We are so happy to hear that Chanta was able to help you gain a better understanding of the program! For more information about reviews on ConsumerAffairs. My NuMi bottle issue was already taken care of. He therefore missed the window to order the bottle in time for the 2nd month shipment. We would like to have it delivered with the order that is coming up for the 3rd month - we get auto delivery, so it is already set up. We are happy to hear that your water bottle issue has been handled but are sad to hear that your husband is still having issues.

We will be assigning this to a member of the Consumer Experience Team who will be reaching out soon. I am very disappointed with the food. Most of it tastes the same to me and actually upsets my stomach. I did not realize I only had two weeks to cancel and much of that was mostly drinks. Then you keep trying different food thinking something will be edible. I know there is plenty of fine print in contracts that should be read.

I do not recall being verbally told about these conditions. This was a lesson that left a very bad taste in my mouth. We are sorry that the foods upset your stomach and that you were unaware of the auto-delivery nature of the program.

Not clear when I ordered that it would be on automatic order. Food is not good, not good instructions, dinners were bland. Too many entrees with spicy tomato sauce and cheese, dinners are bland. Shakes made me sick.

Emails were only to sell more. Thank you for writing this review. We are sad to hear the foods were not to your liking and that the deliveries would be automatic. We will be looking into your account and reaching out soon. This is a follow-up to the review I posted on September 5. Soon after I posted my first review, a rep from Nutrisystem contacted me via email.

The email was courteous, professional, and apologetic for the experience I had. The rep went on to offer replacement of the damaged food items I had received and encouraged me to give their company another try. In light of this swift response and their sincere desire to ensure that I was happy with their product and service, I am revising my review.

I accepted a ready-made menu that containing some items that I did not enjoy. In the future, I will make a point to select food items that I now know to be more to my liking than others. I am very pleased and heartened by Nutrisystem's timely reply and concern for my purchase. They deserve a second chance. I ordered my month's supply of diet food from Nutrisystem with high hopes. When the food shipment arrived, most of the frozen breakfast items were broken into small bits; when I opened the packages, the bits fell out.

Then I tried the frozen lunches. Since I take these to work, the only heating option is microwave. Anything with bread or chicken comes out chewy, gooey, and icy cold in the center. It actually made me gag and lose my appetite, which wasn't the diet plan I expected. I am very careful when reading agreements, and for this item to be overlooked was no easy feat. Fineprint at the end will do that to you.

To add insult to injury, the obnoxious customer service person on the phone refused to accept my cancellation until she badgered me with questions and hard sell tactics in a desperate attempt to keep me buying their awful food. Overall, this was a horrible experience. I will never use or recommend Nutrisystem again. We are so sorry to hear about your poor experience with the delivery of your foods, the food itself, and the representative you dealt with.

We will be taking a peek at your account and reaching out soon. Was not satisfied with the taste of most of the foods, had to throw it away and buy something else, and most of the desserts had an ok flavor, And a lot of meals with cheese. I was not happy with that. My first order included items I didn't order and one that I'm allergic to its ingredients. I was told by one person the items were probably substitutions and when ready they would be replaced. When I called the customer service lady was very rude, basically stated I was lying and wouldn't allow me to speak to a supervisor.

I'm very disappointed with the service I receive so I will take my business to a place that has better customer service. Went thru a few months of products. Following it closely and exercised Sent email to customer support and I was told to think of it as not wasted but I received nutritional food with fiber Now I know why it only got one star.

Weight loss system worksstale product and no one to answer to except counselors with no control. I emailed three correspondences to FIVE different departments only to receive a notice that they don't reply to emails because they were too busy.

I also included to them pictures of the moldy carrot cake, along with the packaging that states the date is still okay. The oatmeal is so stale it sticks to the side of the package and had to pour hot water in the bag to get the product out.

Chocolate covered pretzels are stale. We did call and the rep was very nice and stated that she couldn't do anything except replace our stale food. How many packages were bad? I honestly didn't count how many items I threw awayat their prices ANY wasted product is too many! Doesn't anyone there want to see a photo of the stale food? Does anyone there care?

VERY poor about keeping the customer happy, however, are not timid about selling you the program. Shame on you, Nutrisystem.

We are sorry to hear about the spoiled and stale items you received. We will be reviewing your account and reaching out soon. I am not sure why in today's time of electronics that it takes so long to get the information. We are sorry to hear that it took you so long to receive the information you needed for the program.

We will be reaching out shortly. Pleased with the conversation with my counselor. I feel I have a better handle on what I should be doing. I am looking forward to losing the weight I have set my goal for. Thank you very much for your help. We are happy to hear that you feel like you understand the program better after speaking with one of our counselors.

Please let us know if there is anything else we can do to help! I wrote in with a few complaints about some of the food I received; some broken food, bags not sealed and crushed muffins. Allison was very helpful and courteous and was able to change my mood.

Thank you Allison for being pleasant and helpful. Thank you for the kind words! We will be sure to pass this compliment onto Allison. Keep up the excellent work on the program, Chris! I didn't know this when I originally call to cancel my account. Not that I like it, I understand that it was to be paid now. I was on hold for several minutes and when he finally came back he proceeded to tell me that his supervisor was at lunch and would called me back when she returned, "Oh and by the way here's your confirmation for your cancellation".

At that time I received an email from my PayPal account, advising me that I just made a payment to Nutrisystem. The man had the nerve to charge my account while he had me on hold. I have called every day, each rep has told me what he did was ok.
