Kara Cline: Lost 95 Lbs.
Hi Obie — I added a picture of the nutrition fact label on our Nutrisystem Shake page. When I joined Nutrisystem I was afraid the food would taste terrible as I had read a review online saying so. No wonder Americans can't control their weight. I also ate some chocolate cake and some cheese puffs. Nutrisystem says they deliver a simple program with great tasting foods to help you lose weight. Best of luck with reaching your goals!
And that's what a regular guys week looks like on Nutrisystem. I have no kitchen skills so preparing complex and healthy meals can't happen. Therefore, Nutrisystem works for me. I basically have two choices, low carb or Nutrisystem. Low carb works for me but, it can be pretty brutal and it's too much meat for my taste. BTW, Nutrisystem offers a vegetarian plan. My Nutrisystem weekends on your own looks like this: Mornings I eat cereal.
I like one bowl of Special K redberries with fat free skim milk and my two cups of coffee, sweetner no cream. Lunch on Satuardy, if I'm at home is a salad and maybe some watermelon. Dinner is usually at a restaurant. I like salads and I have had some awesome salads. We went to a steak house last Saturday and I had the small grilled Salmon, a baked sweet potato and a salad. If we go Thai I get fresh salad rolls, I love em. We keep sugar free jello cups in the fridge all the time as a snack.
It's a free food so.. Anyway, maybe this information will help someone. I know for me my healthy lifestyle fell apart at the grocery store. Nutrisystem takes care of that for you. I go to the grocery store a lot these days but, it's all small purchases. There's four grocery stores between work and home so I don't mind. I don't buy foods with a shelf life for the most part. I would say that we actually save money on Nutrisystem because during the week we don't eat out at all and we don't buy very much from the grocery store.
Our monthly expenditure is either cheaper or a wash but, Nutrisystem isn't costing us anymore than we were spending a month anyway. I have a new un-opened box ready to go. I have three days from the last order. After the next box is done I may try to go off Nutrisystem. That would be 16 weeks on Nutrisystem. I think I know how to eat now. If I start to slide I'll order a card and get a new box of Nutrisystem.
By Kathy on June 21, I bought this thru Amazon, sold by Charity Books. I received the card to order the food. This is a total scam and Amazon should not even sell this if you can't get you're money's worth.. Top rated Most recent Top rated.

By Peg on January 20, I was under the impression that when I ordered this from La Leela that I would be receiving the product not a card with a code for the Nutritsystem web site. The charge for mailing a card was overpriced. It should be stated in the information somewhere that they are just selling a card!
And that you have to go to a web site and then sign up to get your product. I would not have bought this after seeing that I could get it cheaper on the Nutrisystem web site. We had dieted together before, but he was just in awe of my progress. I quickly learned to adapt our busy lifestyles to healthier patterns. My husband and I went to one of our regular restaurants, and a waitress came up to us, totally surprised, thinking my husband was there with another woman!
And what that kind of response does to your own mental state is just unbelievable. Before, my cholesterol was dangerously high, but my doctor has been really impressed with my results in just a few months. I was perimenopausal when I had kids, so menopause was very difficult for me.
I just love that this program is so holistic—as you see improvement in one thing, you see ripple effect benefits in other areas. For people struggling with the same kinds of challenges I had, this is a battle for life. You have to just bite the bullet and go for it. You need to make this decision for yourself and stick with it, and you will have success. I lost 25 pounds the first time, and was really pleased with my progress.
People laugh, but I tell them it was like liposuction in a bottle. At this point in my life, approaching 60, I want to make the most of what I have. I want to live full of health for the next years. I had been having mood swings and was waking up at 3: My hot flashes meant I could be drenched in sweat in the middle of the day. I really love that the support system is there. These people cared about me, gave great advice, and knew how to help if I fell off the wagon.
They put so much emphasis on educating me, teaching me how to make it practical for everyday life. When you lose that kind of weight, you have more confidence, healthier self-esteem, and you like yourself. I just feel really good. I love life and being around people, and when you feel this great about yourself, you can focus more on the people around you. I have to admit, too, that I was a tremendous skeptic in the beginning. I learned to be suspicious of the promises of diet plans because I had tried them all.
What I love about the program is the way the BeBalanced staff are supportive and available every step of the way. They answered my questions, gave me direction, and cheered me on across the finish line.
I appreciate how they patiently and thoroughly explained the science behind the program in a way that made sense to me. That knowledge really encouraged me to give it a try. I took my year-old daughter on a trip to Italy several years ago, and when I came home, I deleted all my pictures.
The person I saw in the photos was not the person I wanted to be. I had gone through an early menopause, adopted a third child, and experienced a lot of stress raising a child with special needs.
I was having trouble sleeping, experiencing hot flashes, and had this emotional, drowning feeling. I had been thin growing up—a size 4 or 6—but had experienced weight gain over the years to the point where I was a size 16 to When I started the program, my goal was to get to a size When I learned what was really impacting my body, it was so freeing, and I could let myself off the hook a bit.
Finally, I felt educated. I know what fuels my body, and I know that denying myself food is not the key. I was 46 when I first did the BeBalanced program, and I did it because I wanted to feel healthy and feel better about myself.
Now, as I approach 50, this is who I want to be. I love the feeling that my daughters are proud of me. 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.
