Nutrisystem Success Marie's Must-Haves 4 Week Program w/Weekends Off
Won't be reordering
Other than showing me I was eating too much and too many carbs I would not recommend this for 10 - 12 lb weight loss. First week 2.12 lbs and thought that was great, next week 10 ozs, 3rd week 0! I've followed to a tee, worked out so very disappointed! Some of the food is decent but the majority is not good at all and how can you pkg meat in a no need to refrigerate state, it's got to be loaded with preservatives and all those little stay fresh packets they add to the cakes & muffins makes me wonder what the heck is in them. Expensive plus having to add in so much food on your own. Some of what I learned will help me adjust my eating habits, but I won't be reordering.
My quick opinion
I would highly recommend Marie's must-haves to anyone who is serious about sticking to a life changing way of eating. I borrowed an older product book from my aunt and tried to follow the regimen using food from the grocery store. I did lose 10lbs very slowly over 6 months. The sodium isn't that high compared to frozen meals or prepared food you would substitute from the store. I prepared myself for mediocre food for the next 20 days, however I was very pleased with the quality and taste of everything I tried so far! The Ham n Bean soup was the best I ever tried and I live in the heart of home cooking. So far I learned, I didn't eat enough vegetables, drink enough water, and my idea of a portion was way off. In the end I am down 3x as much weight in a quarter of the time I was dieting on my own. My only complaint is that the book I received in my kit wasn't as detailed as the book I borrowed when it came to the "allowed" food lists (i.e. fruit, veggies, starchy foods, snacks, etc)
Great, but only for SERIOUS dieters
This plan is for people who are serious about losing weight and people who are at the point where they are considering extreme measures to lose weight such as bariatric surgery. Not many people who don't fit into this category will be able to tolerate the taste of Nutrisystem food. But for those of us who have tried plans such as Medifast and stuck with it at least for a little while this food is DELICIOUS. Of course their are items in the package that are not great (it's diet food), but the point is that we are learning to Eat to Live and to stop Living to Eat. I have been on the plan for 2 months and have had slow, but consistent weight loss. So far 11 lbs. I am learning to eat smaller portions and not spend so much time thinking about food. I just grab a Nutrisystem breakfast, lunch, dinner or a snack, drink plenty of water eat vegetables and exercise in 10 minute increments daily. I am morbidly obese therefore exercising for more than 5 minutes is extremely difficult for me, but with this plan, there is no pressure. This is the first time I have been able to stick with an exercise and diet regimen at the same time. I love this plan and hope it brings success to many others.
I Was on This Meal Plan Before And I Simply Just Love This Program.The Food Taste, Great And Is Portion Size Just Right. All You Need To Do Is Just Follow The Direction ,And Do The Exercise, and Drink the water and you will start losing the weight and you will see half your size gone and start feeling good about your self. if the food did not cost so much, I would be on the meal plan for the rest of my life.. I Started the first time on the meal plan at 210lbs.i lost 50lbs. then. now my second time I was at 170lbs. and now im at 163lbs. I just love Nutrisystem Thank You, so much, and for coming out with great tasty Food. Keep up with the good work and I will keep working with Nutrisystem. May God Bless You All.. Thank You Again, Again!!!
I just started this a few days ago. After dinner tonight I decieded to write a review because the flat bread pizza is making me sick!! I bought this because I needed the convienience. As it turns out I have to shop and prepare foods that are add ons! I feel I could produce the same results buying "cup of noodles", smart ones, and small package of cereals. I don't find ANYTHING special about this program.
easy to follow take all the work out of it. Just started the good is pretty good
Great diet plan
I have been on the diet for 2 weeks and have lost 4 lbs. The food is not bad at all. I do agree that they should add shakes for the month and not only 7.
It helps you keep your portions in control and get you into the habit of keeping a journal of what you eat.
The food is so bad! It really is not edible. The roast beef and mash potatoes were left a strong after taste. This is not a diet that promotes good eating. This is a diet that serves such bad food it makes one lose your appetite.
I will not buy this again, nor recommend it to anyone.
Food Good But Gave Me Gas
I have been on the nutrisystem for 3 weeks and have already lost 5 pounds. I read a few reviews that comment on how bad the food taste. Since I cut down on my salt years ago, the food to me taste fine. But I will not be ordering this food again unless I am off work for a month or more due to this food gave me gas! I would pass gas in my sleep and pass gas when I didnt know I pass gas. I have about 7 days worth of food left and I am going to eat the food just on the weekend when I'm not around lot of people. I gave nutrisystem 2 stars because of my passing too much gas problem.
Really Love the Plan
I really like the Nutrisystem plan. It has helped me lose 50 pounds, However I wish that the shipments came with a months worth of protein shakes instead of just 7. Or if there was on option to purchase the protein shakes separately.
I knew at the beginning of the year that I would need to lose weight. I bought this thinking it would be a jumping off place. I can't believe it. I ordered at the end of January, received it at the first February and here we are in March and I've already lost 10 lbs. I like everything in the box. It is yummy and it satisfies. Also, I am learning portion control. When I am on my off days on the weekends, I really try to keep to smaller portions. I can't wait until the end of this month. Yippee!
