There are definitely some ways to keep the costs down though. I want my free account. I have tried every diet out there-seriously. That's my two cents. But all the muffins are amazing especially the double chocolate ones and I really like the waffles or french toast with an egg on top. Before and after photos showcase people slimming down. Keep the posts coming.
Thanks for the pricing info. Has anyone else been able to do this? Hi Cindy — Thanks for visiting, and happy to hear the pricing info helped! I think 5 to 10 pounds is totally doable, especially if you commit to the full 2 months!
Remember, Nutrisystem does offer counselors to help keep you on track, and as long as you stick to the program, you should see a significant amount of weight loss during that time period! That has definitely been a key to success for me over the years. In any case, best of luck — let us know how it goes! I was pretty pleased to find this web site and your cost breakdown is very detailed.
Thanks for all of the information — it makes my decision a lot easier. Hopefully can report back with some great results. Thanks for all of the information. Makes my decision a lot easier knowing exactly what things are going to cost! Need to loose about 59 pounds.
Thank you for the sensible critique and cost info. Mostly fish and vegetables. Sometimes chicken or turkey but not all the time! Is there a plan to start me on this regiment? Can you send some ideas and pricing plans? I tried turbo shakes with other companies and they gave me lots of gas…lol Thanks if this gets to you.
Hi Jim — sorry, I missed this comment at the time you posted it. I would also recommend looking at BistroMD https: Diet-to-Go has some really good plans that sound like they could work for you.
Both are going to be a bit more pricey than Nutrisystem, but sound like they could be a better fit. My husband and I are considering NS. We also do not want to purchase ANY other food if possible. Hi Lynn — I replied to Ray with a couple of other options BistroMD and Diet-to-Go …I would recommend checking out those reviews if you think they may be something that would work for you and your husband.
There are definitely some ways to keep the costs down though. You will definitely want to incorporate fresh produce, though, as I think you would get tired of only eating their pre-made meals, and you will want to mix in a salad or something on most days just to get the health benefits from the fresh produce if nothing else. Hi Pete — the frozen food is an additional charge, but can be included in your 4-week order or as an ala carte item.
Many are on a fixed income and I am one of them … an older woman, a widow, and on a very fixed income. With the profit your company surely must realize, might you consider offering your program free to a few deserving people men and women who would benefit from it as well?
Just something you might consider … it just might be of benefit to your company in another way … good will! The Costco purchased gift cards can definitely be used and there is a space at checkout to put them in. You will just have to make sure you put the gift card in a few days before the processing date for additional deliveries. I just went through this whole process and received my order today.
Thanks for the very thorough cost information. Helped make my decision a lot easier. I agree, too, the frozen meals are definitely a nice bonus — especially the desserts! There are some costs with buying your own fruits or vegetables to consider too, but overall it seems fairly affordable. Anyways, thanks for the detailed pricing breakdown, really appreciate it. Is it organic or are there a lot of preservatives in It. Hi Isabel — Thanks for visiting. Hi Arlene — Thanks for visiting. I have always found it to be very easy to opt out.
As long as you stay on the program for at least two months, you should be able to cancel without paying any type of penalty if you need to cancel after month 1 I mention one way to avoid the penalty in the review above , and customer service has always been very easy to deal with when I have needed to call them.
I live in Ottawa Ontario Canada. Where in Canada can I join. Are the costs of the meals increased to take in the difference between the American and Canadian do. Also what about duty and taxes, as well as shipping fees. I am a woman ,77 yrs old and need to lose at least 25 lbs. Please try to enlighten me. Thank you very much for your assistance. What exactly is in the Turbo Shakes?
Are the ingredients identified on the package? Best of luck — Norm. Hi Obie — I added a picture of the nutrition fact label on our Nutrisystem Shake page. I have limited freezer space and feel that the frozen foods would be the way for me to start and continue a controlled size appropriate diet.
Does anyone offer three or four shipments monthly? If you get the Basic plan none of the foods are frozen, so that may be another option you could consider.
Diet-to-Go has a weekly shipment option — we have a review about them here: Hope that helps — NS. I have used your plan several years ago and did loose weight, but have gained some back. I am 81 yrs old and on a fixed income now.
Having to buy extra food is not feasible me. Any suggestions how I can use your plan without extra purchases? Notify me of new posts by email. Leave this field empty. Happy to help Tod…Thanks for reading! I adore this site — its so usefull and helpful! Thanks, glad you find it helpful! We can all relate to that -- because once the day gets going, it's hard to get off the treadmill called life. Research suggests that morning exercise improves sleep , a benefit that could also promote weight loss, Bryant tells WebMD.
One study of overweight women between the ages of 50 to 75 showed that those who engaged in consistent morning exercise about four hours a week slept better than those who exercised less. The evening exercisers had more trouble falling asleep - even if they fit in the four hours a week. Bryant explains the connection of sleep and weight loss: It is possible that by exercising in the morning -- instead of evening - the exercise affects the body's circadian rhythm your internal body clock so you get better-quality sleep.
Good sleep helps control the hormonal balance that helps control appetite. Brisk exercise an hour or more daily has helped more than 4, "successful losers" in The National Weight Control Registry -- they've all lost 30 pounds or more and kept it off for a year or longer. Many of them break up their exercise into shorter spurts throughout the day instead of doing a single, marathon workout session. But if you're overweight , you're at risk for a heart attack.
If you don't do something about your weight, it's indirect self-destructive behavior. It's the same as smoking a pack of cigarettes daily. This has got to be the highest priority because it's your health. One way to make exercise a daily habit is to integrate your workout into your regular life, says Walter Thompson, PhD, professor of exercise physiology at Georgia State University in Atlanta. Physical activity - not just exercise per se -- can become part of your daily routine, Thompson tells WebMD.
I talk more about integrating physical activity into your daily lifestyle. Take the stairs rather than the elevator. These are habits you can get used to. They will become common practice.
Structured physical activity is also important. Walking, yoga , lifting weights, biking, running, and swimming - could all be a morning exercise choice. Here's an estimate of the average calorie-burn potential from 30 minutes of exercise:. Moderate Exercise Walking 3. One recent study noted that yoga - a popular morning activity - can help prevent the dreaded middle-age spread and even help shed unwanted pounds.
Researchers looked at normal and overweight men and women who practiced yoga regularly at least one session of 30 minutes or more per week for four years or more.
It compared their weight with the weight of people who didn't do yoga. Normal-weight people who practiced yoga gained less than those who didn't practice yoga. Overweight people who practiced yoga lost an average of 5 pounds; those who didn't practice gained about 14 pounds. Yoga's effect may have more to do with body awareness than the actual calories burned during the average session, researchers say.
During yoga practice, you are more aware of your body - which can prompt you to quit eating when you're full. If you're really trying to lose weight and keep it off, work toward a goal of 60 to 90 minutes of exercise most days of the week.
