Kara Cline: Lost 95 Lbs.
I am also single. You take that feedback and adjust your energy balance. It's hard to believe that something that tastes this good can help you lose wieght. It is important to stick to healthy carb sources like oats, rice, quinoa, potatoes, sweet potatoes, fruit, etc. Our bodies do a great job of self-regulating how much to eat if you let it. Maybe I'll need to start exercising after all.
Dr. Kevin Gendreau: Lost 125 Lbs.
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. With Nutrisystem all I have to do is follow the instructions and eat the foods Nutrisystem supplies. When I joined Nutrisystem I was afraid the food would taste terrible as I had read a review online saying so. Of course there are a few foods that do not suit my taste such as the eggs frittata; however, most of the foods are delicious.
For breakfast I can eat pancakes, blueberry pancakes, cinnamon buns or oatmeal. There are many other breakfast foods to choose from also. For lunch I can eat hearty minestrone soup or choose from many other menu items. Nutrisystem also offers great dinners, snacks and desserts. Following the Nutrisystem plan is easy and I am seeing results. I wish the weight melted off easier, but it took a while putting it on and so I expect it'll take time getting it off too.
I had tried losing weight on my own a few times but it was too hard to count calories and weigh out all of my food what a time sucker! I always got discouraged about losing the weight. With Nutrisystem I have not became discouraged because Nutrisystem makes the plan so simple to follow. While it's not fresh food the meals are frozen , it still just as great tasting. Speaking frankly, I was really afraid that I would hate the Nutrisystem food. I gave the food a try thinking it would taste like cardboard.
However, I was completely wrong, the Nutrisystem food is delicious. Breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert and all my snacks provided by Nutrisystem are tasty. My wife loves me being on the Nutrisystem diet too. She is very impressed with the progress I have made losing weight.
She just makes dinner for the family and I eat my Nutrisystem meal. Nutrisystem is a great diet plan that I personally think can help anyone lose weight. Let's be honest here, does any man like to cook? Not only do I not like to cook, I just don't have the time to cook.
That's why Nutrisystem really appealed to me when my doctor recommended it. I am a busy man who works 80 hours a week. I am also single. I just don't know how to cook, so I eat fast food quite often. I also eat at restaurants often too. The reason I go out to eat so often is because I am single, busy and do not know how to cook. Going out to eat is just easier than learning how to cook. But eating out is expensive and has caused me to quickly add on 30 pounds that I no longer wanted.
I thought if I pay to go out to eat everyday I might as well pay to eat this healthy food and lose some weight. The best part of the Nutrisystem plan is that I do not have to prepare the food and it still tastes great. I am losing weight eating healthy delicious foods. I'm happy and so is my doctor who was telling me I needed to lose weight.
I have lost nine pounds since I started the diet. With Nutrisystem you get to chose from many foods that are already prepared for you. You also get a daily menu planner and a diary to log your success in. Nutrisystem also provides a website that includes articles, weight loss stories, blogs, chat rooms and a live counselor who is available 24 hours a day for support.
With the Nutrisystem plan I go online everyday and log onto Nutrisystem's website to see my progress. I also check the discussion group forums and talk to other men who are trying to lose weight. I enjoy using the Nutrisystem web site. The Nutrisystem plan is so simple to follow. I really can not think of any other diet plan that is as simple to use as Nutrisystem. The food Nutrisystem offers is also excellent. My favorite food from Nutrisystem is the beef stew.
I love beef stew and I would not want to give it up for a diet. However, with Nutrisystem I do not have to give up beef stew because Nutrisystem offers a beef stew dinner. I have been on the plan for about one month now and have already lost seven pounds which wasn't happening with Bistro MD. I'm happy to say that losing weight has never been easier. The Nutrisystem plan is very easy to follow and simple to understand. I get to eat three meals a day plus a snack and a dessert.
As soon as I start to feel hungry I get to eat again. With Nutrisystem I get access to the Nutrisystem website tools too.
The website is wonderful. I can log on and talk to other people from all over the world who are trying to lose weight. The other people on the website inspire me to want to lose more weight and become even healthier. The people on the website inspire to me to stick with the plan until I reach my goal.
It's a great support group. The Nutrisystem website also provides me with access to a counselor who is available 24 hours a day to chat with if I have any questions. It's working for me and I know it will work for you too. Now if I can only get my wife on it.
I need more support! I have been using Nutrisystem's plan for about two months now. I thought for sure when I started the plan that I would probably have at least one thing to complain about it; however, I was wrong. Nutrisystem truly is a great plan. Any problems that you may read about online are obviously one off items and not a consistent trend. The basic plan is extremely easy to follow. It comes with specific instructions on how to follow it. It also comes with some great dieting tools.
The best part of the plan is that it comes with healthy foods that are already prepared for me to eat. Food wise, I love the vegetable beef soup; it is one of my favorite things to eat for lunch. I love to eat the chili with beans for dinner. So far, I love all of the foods I've tried. I haven't found one that wasn't edible. Even the desserts and snacks taste darn good. And unlike other diets, with Nutrisystem I don't crave junk food because I get a treat everyday in the meal plan: I have needed to lose weight for quite awhile and am just glad that I'm finally doing something about it.
I am very satisfied with the basic plan. Like most guys I know, I love to eat! I was always afraid of going on a hard core diet plan because I did not want to give up great tasting foods. With the Nutrisystem plan I have not had to give up any of my usual great tasting foods.
Hats off to Nutrisystem for figuring out how to get great tasting food in a small package that is so easy to prepare - just stick it in the microwave and you're eating in 5 minutes. So far, my favorite is the mushroom risotto, the chicken with dumplings, and the chili with beans, the flame broiled beef patty, the barbecue sauce pork wrap, the chocolate chocolate chip pudding, the chocolate crunch bar, the chocolate chip cookie, the creamy tomato sauce, the blueberry pancakes and the blueberry muffins.
I could go on and on about the rest of Nutrisystem's dishes but I'm making myself hungry ;- I enjoy eating all of Nutrisystem's foods. I do not think I have found a food that I did not like yet.
Do not be afraid of having to give up eating great food because you're still going to get great food with Nutrisystem. Nutrisystem is a great diet plan for anyone - especially men. I get to eat great food that is already prepared for me everyday.
All I have to do is follow the basic directions for following the plan and eat the Nutrisystem foods. The best part about the Nutrisystem plan is that I lost seven pounds since I started it a month ago.
My weight loss has always been very difficult except when I was doing gymnastics four hours a day. I ate calories a day to drop the weight low carb keto diet.
However I plateaued at the beginning of September. I decided to bump my calories up to a day, because I figured my body had adapted to the calories. I have put back on six pounds not water weight — I am still on the keto plan.
How long does it take the body to reset? Thanks for any tips! A calorie bump overnight is a big one and very well could be too many calories for you depending on your stats. Thanks for the article! I am the person who left a question about greek yogurt a week ago. Thanks to your advice, my sleep quality has been perfect! However, now I am in a dilemma. Just to recap, I am 5ft2in, Ib, and 18 yr old. I do have a history of yo-yo dieting for 3 yrs due to the lack of knowledge on metabolism silly me.
Fortunately, my T2D is now reversed! I do have signs of suppressed metabolism, such as crankier mood, low body temp, significantly lighter period although it still occurs once a month and feeling weaker during strength training, and that really concerns me because my goal is to take care of my health. My weight loss has slowed down a lot since I have started strength training I only lost 1Ib in three weeks , but my major concern is the intense hunger signal and starvation symptoms.
Also, since I had T2D, I am now on a ketogenic diet. It has been working really well for me, and I would like to stick with it even during the reverse diet phase so no carb increase.
Thank you so much for reading this long post! You might need calories. Maybe start with and see if those feelings go away in a few days. If not you can always increase more. I have to raise myself to , as with my short height and being lb, calculators tell me to go around calories!
But the goal of the article is to encourage people to start higher and only get to that number if you have to. Since August I have been watching what I eat and on a plan with a nutritionist eating roughly calories a day however i would have lots of cheat days and went from to the I just reimplemented physical activity and am doing 5 miles a day at 3. I have now been stuck at Should I eat a little more or do a little less of physical activity, seeing the number not change and doing the pa is discouraging.
Take a look at this article — https: I have been consuming calories per day and I have been gaining. I do workout almost everyday, burning around calories per day. Overall, I guess that would be calories consumed during the week. But, on the weekends I am not as strict. I figure the additional calories I consume that weekend evens out the week. Is it that I am eating too much or too little? If I consume mon-fri with calories burned per day so cals consumed , but sat-sun I most likely consume more with exercise of cals burned — is my amount per day still too little or too much?
Is it wrong to make the weekend even out my week? Hopefully that makes sense! I am just trying to figure out why I have gained weight. If so, there could be something else at play. I am now trying a 4th way of changing my eating to lose weight.
I have tried low-carb, Trim Healthy Mama, intermittent fasting with 2 mi. I have 70lbs to lose. Each and every diet I have been on I gain and lose the same 1lb for the 4 weeks I have tried each of them. I am so discouraged and frustrated. I stop a diet, discouraged and go back to my bad way of eating and then gain several lbs a week for my trouble. I would be better off if I never tried! I am being very conscious of all I eat when following a plan. I used to eat horribly bad, thus the weight gain.
I have cut out all sodas, added sugars, mochas, fast food. What else can I do? I had my thyroid checked a year ago and was borderline so doctor said that is not it. I have the will and motivation, but nothing is working!!
What do you recommend I do to find out what is wrong?? If you do that you end up getting stuck in the yoyo dieting cycle. Instead, do it because it makes you feel your best. Eating whole foods and moving your body gives you more energy, mental clarity, improves health, strength, and is fun. Get consistent with your eating and look to make small improvements to your eating, exercise, and mindset over time.
There is no magic diet. I take two workout classes per week and eat exactly calories per day. I cannot get the scale to budge.
Do you think calories sounds like a good number for me? Just take that and subtract a couple hundred calories to start. See if your weight starts trending down.
If not, cut calories every couple of weeks until it is. Did you start there? Is it based on something? Have you come down to that level over time? I went to a store and had my BMR read. It says that my body burns calories a day. I have recently started working out CrossFit 4 times a week. I usually burn anywhere from calories during my workout. My Fitbit says I burn around a day. I have also started eating a high protein diet with veggies with low sugars.
I am having a hard time getting more than calories a day while eating 6 times a day. I am scared that I am going to shut down my metabolism. I eat when I am hungry but again high protein, veggies, staying around 32g of sugar.
Will I see weight loss? How many calories should I actually get? I need to lose 30 lbs to be at a healthy weight for my height. Have you considered adding in some starches or healthy fats? Take a look at this article for how many calories to eat — https: Hi Tony, so glad I found your site. Been reading my brains out all morning. What you say makes perfect sense. I am using a calorie counter and staying around calories a day. So careful about what I eat.
Small meals all the time. I gag when I try. I went on weight watchers for 3 weeks and gained 2 pounds. Thanks Tony for this site and all your great information.
Hi Susan, I would work towards getting over your fear of food. Food is your friend, not your enemy. Will you gain weight? Already started that a few days ago since I read all you had to say here.
But am not losing weight should I be eating more calories to lose weight? I eat very clean and have tried everything from cal to eating 6 small meals a day no carbs after 10 am And I can not lose.. I could really use some help, because everyone suggests me different ideas to lose weight and i try to incorporate all, but nothing seems to work. Initially I used to do about an hour of cardio along with a healthy diet i am a vegetarian so i used to incorporate a lot of green vegetables.
This went for almost an year with no result. Then I started doing mins cardio and 30 min weight training along with limiting my diet to calories and currently i am down to almost a calories a day.
And yet I see no result. My protein intake is a little less around gms. What am I possibly doing wrong? I have quite an active lifestyle too as i am in college.
Get those up to more effective levels and be consistent with your eating day to day for at least a couple of months.
I recently started eating healthy in an effort to get to my goal weight of I started about a five weeks ago and logging my daily intake.
When I started logging I was only eating around a day. That was my normal day and just what I was used to eating. Being so low I actually tried to add about calories a day from fruits vegetables protein etc. I have yet to lose any lbs but have seen a reduction in my waist and hips and have noticed a big change in my energy.
I just started excercising again as I was afraid to start when I was eating so little so now I am at around and excercising at least 4 times a week mixing cardio and strength. The scale not budging has to be the biggest annoyance in this whole process but im hoping to slowly keep seeing some changes. There is definitely a downside is eating too few calories and not fueling your body.
It can definitely be frustrating. But how does it actually do that? Please help im 13 stone and 5ft 5inch tall. Get Fit For Life is the ultimate end goal. I think most people would do well in it.
If it were me I would just eat at calories for a while and assess the feedback. Thank you…I appreciate your input!! Will do as you advise!!
Wishing you luck going forward! Thanks for the reply, I really do appreciate it. Establish good habits first. Then make adjustments to those habits. There is a direct correlation between how much you eat and thyroid levels in most cases. Hi Tony, I had knee surgery 4 years ago and was told I could never jog again. I over the years have been struggling to get down in weight which I currently stand at lbs. I am by far where I would like to be, toned with very little fat.
Hi Steve, a few things: Hello, I have been consuming calories per day and I have been gaining. Hi Nicole, did you have a specific question? I would love to get to , but have hit a plateau. Sorry to hear that, Cindy. Did you have a question? Hi This is a great article and gives me hope! With Nutrisystem I get access to the Nutrisystem website tools too. The website is wonderful.

The best part about the Nutrisystem plan is that I lost seven pounds since I started it a month ago. Nutrisystem also supplies its members with a member website. The website helps individuals on the plan stay motivated. The website is a place where anyone who is on the plan can go for support. I enjoy logging onto the website and seeing the progress that I have made. I also enjoy reading inspiring stories from others on the Nutrisystem plan that have lost weight.
Luckily though, Nutrisystem offers many different foods to choose from. Nutrisystem is also adding new food items to the menu all of the time.
Always good to keep the variety up. The Nutrisystem plans foods are also healthy. Nutrisystem has empowered me to lose weight and maintain a healthy lifestyle. As an added bonus, I now do allthe cooking for my girlfriend, which has really helped our love life. After all, who can't throw an extra dish int he microwave for 5 minutes? Give it a try guys and I expect your girlfriend will be just as happy as mine is.
I have lost 20 pounds in three months and haven't been exercising at all. Just like their marketing says, the plan really does allow you to eat healthy while losing weight. The foods are very easy to clean up when I am finished also. Just throw the microwave safe container in the trash.
What more could you ask for? I take my frozen lunch with me to work and I can get more work done while losing weight! The plan is also very simple to follow, just follow their instructions. Don't deviate by eating snickers bars, okay?! Stay away from those evil vending machines too! If you drink coffee, stop using creamer as I discovered I was drinking an extra calories a day in coffee creamer!

Since starting the diet, I've lost 20 pounds and have started feeling good about my body again, which has helped my love life significantly. My girlfriend can't keep her hands off of my new slimmer waist ;- She is so proud of me and she thinks I look great. Who would have thought I could eat healthy food that I do not have to prepare that I actually like?
I am a married man who needed to lose weight. My wife told me I should try Nutrisystem because I could lose weight while eating good tasting food. She also thought the plan sounded good because she would not have to cook special foods for me while I was dieting. I must say I am impressed with the Nutrisystem plan.
Nutrisystem says they deliver a simple program with great tasting foods to help you lose weight. Nutrisystem is not lying when they say this. Nutrisystems foods are delectable. I have never eaten healthy foods that tasted so good in all my life. There are foods like buffalo wing pretzels, pulled pork wraps, cinnamon buns, pancakes and many other great tasting foods.
The foods are not drab and boring like with Medifast which I tried last year. The foods are flavorful and delightful. I feel great and I am beginning to look great. My wife is enjoying the smaller me and I am enjoying the attention.
Nutrisystem is a simple way to lose weight. Fingers crossed I can keep it off when I go off of Nutrisystem. Nutrisystem is diet plan that allows a person to lose weight without having to think too much about it.
I haven't tried any of the other plans, but I can tell you this, the basic plan is super easy to follow. It comes with diet tools that are easy to use and awesome tasting foods albiet frozen. As they say in the support forum, it's all about taking it one day at a time and doing your best to stick with the meal plans and not deviate, which is hard to do if you have co-workers that want to eat out for lunch all the time.
The plan has helped me look better and feel great about myself. Losing weight has given me confidence that I had been lacking for awhile. I now feel confident at work and am ready for a career change. I have more confidence to ask women out on dates too. Well, at least online anyway. I owe my confidence to my weight loss and I owe my weight loss to Nutrisystem.
If you're thinking about joining Nutrisystem, see if you can get your hands on one of their chocolate puddings. It's hard to believe that something that tastes this good can help you lose wieght. Hey, just wanted to let you know that I read all the reviews and decided to give Nutrisystem a chance. Turns out that its true The plan is extremely easy to follow and I have found it to be cheaper than buying food at the grocery store.
I mainly shop at Whole Foods aka Whole Paycheck though. The plan comes with easy to understand instructions on how to lose weight. It also comes with access to a very useful website, daily menu planner and diary that are helpful for losing weight and keeping it off. IMHO, the best part of Nutrisystem is the food. I have really enjoyed the plentiful food options available on the basic plan. Lots of variety and deserts. The breakfasts are my favorite part of the meal plan; they keep me going until lunch time.
The lunches are also very good. The dinners, snacks and desserts are also phenom. Great deal for the money! Yesterday I got up and ate blueberry pancakes, which tasted delicious. Later for lunch I ate creamy tomato soup which was also very tasty. For dinner I had a barbecue sauce with pork wrap. The barbecue sauce with pork wrap was very good; it was my favorite meal of the day.
