Nutrisystem Advanced 14 Day Customized Meal Plan
not for me
I thought this would be good for me since I got to pick out the food, but when I received it, nutrisystem substituted food. I think they should tell you berfore they ship it. Back it went. I love everything from qvc, but this was terrible.
Do Your Research!
For those folks that found this item confusing, this is NOT a starter package. The starter packages have all the information on how to eat on the program. Also, all the tools are available online.
too many substitutes
I agree with other posters - I like Nutrisystem, it works. But there were way way too many substitutes. QVC has such good customer service, I don't know why they couldn't call or email saying we have to substitute, do you want this or that, rather than making the decision for you.
Because I ordered one custom package for me and one for my hubby, I know have 4 of our least favorite food - as a substitute. Ugh. It's not worth sending back, just for that, but I will probably be throwing these 4 items away or trying to find a food pantry to give them to.
Do not do this one
Purchased the regular 4 WK plan and liked it so we thought we would do this one so we could get the foods we liked and leave out the ones we didn't care for. Came today and they substituted so much that it was more than half what we did not want. Going back tomorrow morning.
Watch out for substitutes
It is supposed to be custom, only what you want, well Nutisystem substitued 6 out of 14 dinners. 4 of which, the chicken pasta alfrado are not ebible, the sauce is like clay. Really should not substitue a custom order. Foolish move for sales. You will need to contact Nutrsystem to try to get it resolved as they, not QVC make the changes. Some of the things are good ( like what I actually ordered) But if you don't know what you are going to get, you don't feel like oredering more.
Alright, so the food wasn't the greatest but it wasn't that bad either. You just have to figure out how to make it taste better by adding your own vegetables (of which you can add lots and lots!). I lost about 20 pounds in 3 months. It took a while but I didn't stick to the plan on weekends. I also exercised. The one meal I could definitely do without was the chicken and dumplings YUCK! Nasty! Everything else was fine. It helped me learn how to controle the portions and choose foods that are healthier. The desserts were pretty good and like someone else said, I was rarely hungry.
One thing I think buyers need to know is that it isn't as easy as they make it sound. It does take some meal planning in order to supplement the prepackaged food. You need to include your own vegetables, salads, dressings, etc. Once you get the hang of it, it's not a big deal.
I bought the 14 day plan to loose a few pounds. I picked all my food and most of it was pretty good. I don't eat red meat so I bought mostly the non meat items. I know the taste in the food has improved because I had to send a plan I bought back a few years ago because the food was so bad. I loved the vegeterian chili and the fettuccini and the blueberry muffin was awesome. I did not like the chocolate chip cookie at all. If you need to loose a few pounds this is the best plan for you because you get to pick your meals.
I have used Nutri-system in the past with great results.Gained a few pounds so decided I would order again to get back on track. Decided to use the customized meal plan because I rather not have bars for lunch and don't like the tukey hot dogs or faijtas that come with some of the other packages. Well due to what my order sheet says was low inventory some of the items I chose were subsituted for, the choices that were picked were not to my liking. So I now paid more for a plan that was not customized at all. Disappointed that I was not advised about low inventory nor that I was gven the choice of making my own substitutions. Cheaper to order the other packages and chuck what you don't like.
