Final Nutrisystem Review

The Nutrisystem Diet

If I were Marie Osmond, I wouldn't want to be known as a spokesperson for a company that has such bad reviews. BBB alone has 99 bad reviews and I am getting ready to add another. I guess that wasn't necessary to be said. We are sad to hear about the way you were treated when calling.

This is NOT okay. After the 3rd call to NutriSystem about a late order, Beth finally came online and made a return customer — yet again — out of me. We are so happy to hear that Beth was able to straighten things out for you. We wish you continued success on and off the program.

Rachel was very helpful in helping me to better understand my needs while on the plan and I am very thankful for her professionalism. So far I am enjoying being on Nutrisystem. All of the food does taste very good. The only negative thing is that when I first order they did not tell me that there was so much chocolate in the turbo box. I specifically requested no chocolate.

Maybe training is advisable for people helping people to order food. Thank you very much. We are so happy that Rachel was able to help you get started on the program. We are sorry that you received so much chocolate after requesting no chocolate. We will be sure to pass this along for coaching.

Best wishes as you continue on the program. I have been overcharged. Counselors at Nutrisystem keep telling me the issue has been addressed but I do not receive a refund.

This is very upsetting and seems to me to be a bit fraudulent. Please refund my money! We are sorry to hear the NuMi promotion fell off after placing the order. I have been on the Women's Uniquely Yours Program for 13 months, and have lost over 90 pounds. The frozen food is amazing, and I was never hungry or felt deprived. The delicious snacks and double chocolate muffins have kept me satisfied and I never felt deprived. Thank you for the kind words and keep up the awesome work!

Canadian turkey bacon egg and cheese muffin missing cheese - Thank you for the response. I did not to think to take a picture of the back with the information. If this occurs on the next I will. The cheese was missing on two of the sandwiches out of four on this order. I was trying to explain to the last counselor that I spoke to what was happening to me with eating the food and that it was making me sick.

This is not in regards to Kim in returns. Kim was helpful and very nice to me. Anyway, the last counselor I spoke to was so rude and talked over me and would not let me finish my sentence. It's really upsetting that I did not write her name down.

It would be the counselor that I spoke to before I spoke to Kim. We are so sorry that you had such a poor experience. We will definitely be looking into this and reaching out soon. I had a question about my food. Chat with your counselor. Very helpful but our chat was interrupted. I need to know how to continue after the first week. I am still confused on how to continue after the first week.

Thank you for reaching out. We will be assigning this to a member of the Consumer Experience team to reach out and assist you. The quality of food was pretty good with several options to choose from. Unfortunately when they were out of stock they substituted other food! Changing your plan such as delivery frequency was very difficult and why I left.

Thank you for the feedback. We are sorry that you left for those reason. We will be reaching out to get further information. Have a good one! Over the last several months, I have tried over and over to resolve an ongoing problem with order fulfillment. Customer service refused to help and refused my repeated requests to escalate the issue and finally Nutrisystem decided to dump me.

Even in my last e-mail communication with Nutrisystem where I yet again outlined the problem, the reply back from Nutrisystem completely ignored the majority of what I wrote. It looks like if Nutrisystem doesn't say anything about the problem, then it magically doesn't exist somehow.

This shows that Nutrisystem has drastically fallen in terms of focusing on customer needs and flat out refuses to deal ethically with the customer.

We sincerely apologize for your experience. We certainly do not want a long-time member to feel such a way.

We will be investigating this and reaching out soon. I have had a couple questions for your people there and I emailed them for a answer.

First reply was very fast, second was a bit slower but they explained to me the reason why. I have been very satisfied with everything from Nutrisystem!!! Thank you for your patience and understanding. We are happy to hear you got the answers you needed. We wish you the best of luck on the program! This is the 2nd time I've been on the NutriSystem plan. First time was a hit. Lost almost all my weight and kept it off for over a year.

Just a little more weight to lose so I ordered again for 2 months. First shipment arrived on time and the food was terrific. Second shipment has the frozen food arrive a couple days late. The 2nd shipment of non frozen food is still not here after being over a week, now almost a week and a half late. How am I to stay on the regiment with half the menu missing for over a week? My assistant called NS as she ordered for me and asked for help—reimbursement— compensation of some sort.

The reply from Nutri system? I even referred you to my sister and brother in law— who both signed up. We apologize that your 2nd order took longer than expected to get to you.

We completely understand how this can throw someone off. We will be looking into this and reaching out. I sincerely appreciate all the help that Sheila offered. I won't hesitate to contact your Team Rep should I have other questions.

See three emails I've previously sent. You don't honor your own company's policies. Food was extremely poorly packed, melted and opened packaging. We are sorry that you had such a poor experience with us. We will be taking a look at your account and reaching out shortly. Customers can benefit from an online health tracking platform and individualized counseling from dieticians and weight loss coaches.

Nutrisystem offers separate plans for men and women, with different options and price points customized to your weight loss goals. With meals containing 12 grams or less of sugar, Nutrisystem takes the guesswork out of choosing optimal low-glycemic foods to stabilize blood sugar -- which could be good for people with any degree of insulin resistance.

Any busy person who does not have time to prepare their own meals would benefit from having frozen and other pre-packaged meals and snacks delivered to their home. Nutrisystem will ship all the food you need to your doorstep, with free shipping included. You can also find their products on QVC, at Costco and at several major grocers and mass retailers like Kroger and Walmart. Transition and maintenance plan: This program provides long-term fat loss success rather than just focusing on initial weight loss, which is important for those who need to establish lifelong healthy habits.

While all of the meals offered by Nutrisystem are designed to comply with the USDA's recommendations for a nutritious diet, those who want to stick to a vegetarian diet can especially benefit from Nutrisystem. You can avoid all animal products and still lose weight with Nutrisystem, with over 90 vegetarian options.

Many people fail at diets because their bodies crave snacks to maintain their blood sugar levels throughout the day. Because Nutrisystem allows 6 meals a day, you can avoid a dip in your blood sugar that could lead to cravings.

By eating smaller portions, you can eat more frequently and still reach your weight loss goals.

This review is featured by Nutrisystem. March 11, An active athlete 21 years a collegiate soccer referee , 13 years ago I contacted Parkinson's Disease.

March 12, Nutrisystem response. Hello Willis, Thank you so much for your review and sharing your story. March 9, Tomorrow is my last day on turbo take off.

The program provides information on how to do this. Controlling calories and portions and eating regular meals is a healthy formula that should result in weight loss while on the plan. It can be harder to make the transition to eating "real food" when you get closer to your weight-loss goal and don't rely on meals already made for you. Overall the diet is healthy for people with conditions like heart disease , high blood pressure , high cholesterol , and diabetes. Meals are low in sodium, saturated fats , and trans fats , and include high-fiber whole grains, smart carbs, healthy fats , lean protein, and a wide variety of foods.

The Nutrisystem diet is the ultimate in convenience. The real question is whether you can continue to lose weight or maintain your weight when you are no longer relying on the prepackaged foods. The Promise Nutrisystem aims to simplify weight loss. You're discouraged from eating out, and advised to mostly avoid alcohol.

For desserts and snacks, you might have brownies, cake, or cookies. Overall, the foods and meal plans focus on: Packaged foods or meals: Is It Good for Certain Conditions? If you have a medical condition, be sure to talk to your doctor before starting the program.

The Final Word The Nutrisystem diet is the ultimate in convenience. I grant that Nutrisystem food is not the healthiest because most of it is just like canned food and it does have a pretty high sodium content.

The plan works because the portions are small and because, if you follow it, you are not hungry. The drawbacks are it is expensive, the food gets tiresome over the long haul and you need a lot of add-ins from the grocery store. However, it has been the easiest way I have found to lose weight without feeling neglected and, over time, your body gets used to the smaller portions.

When I went to a restaurant recently, I was amazed at the amount of food the plates were holding. Americans care more about getting the most for their money than about their health, and that is why obesity is becoming so prevalent. Even with all the publicity, super-sizing brings in the customers. Thank goodness for Nutrisystem. I am so unhappy with this program I cannot find words to describe my feelings. This program is a scam. I wanted to return the remainder of my order after 60 days they absolutely refused to take them back even though they are dry food and they have never been opened.

I sent some food back within the allowable time, and never received a refund or credit back to my credit card. I was very frustrated with Nutrisystem. When my first shipment arrived, I had no idea how much cupboard space would be needed to house all of the items.

I was not thrilled with the taste of most of the food. I found myself resenting eating the food and was even turned off by the packaging of each item. In addition, I still had to purchase fruit and veggies which added to the cost of the program. I enrolled in auto-shipment and would find another package at my door before I used up what I already had. At some point I had so much food and was so discouraged that I ended the shipments. If someone has a small amount of weight to lose then the program might work really well.

I think I just felt defeated from the start. It has provided me with ideas on what to have for meals and now I do my own cooking. It also made me wonder how effective it was if you had to constantly microwave everything. Something I could not handle. Not to mention how expensive it is. You could probably do it on your own for a lot cheaper if you know what to look for. A good start is adding more fruits and vegetables to your diet followed by drinking water frequently throughout the day.

While at the same time adding fiber and good fats like nuts and olive oil and doing at least 30 minutes of some sort of exercise a day. But it all comes down to one vital thing which is portion sizes. Learning to control the amount you eat can make a significant difference in the long run. If I could afford Nutrisystem and with the hefty cost, I definitely cannot , I would try it. My mom lost forty pounds so I know it works. She also said the food was really tasty — some were not, but she liked the majority.

The best part is that everything is planned out. The key, as is with any weight loss program, is sticking with it. Most plans tend to work when you follow them.

Like Lynda, I love that everything is planned out already…there is no calorie counting or anything involved. It seems like it would be easier to stick to a plan if all you can eat is already provided for you.

The Promise
