Nutrisystem Diet -- Not A Success

I kept seeing the Nutrisystem commercial over and over, with story after story of success.

Well after spending $100's on every diet on the market I thought I'd try it. What was another $300?

I ordered the months supply of preplanned meals for three months at over $300 per month. There's a lot of food, so be sure to have enough space in your cabinets to put it all away, or else you'll get dizzy bending over the huge box while trying to decide what to eat.

To me Nutrisystem was hard. The meals didn't curb my appetite.

I ate all the snacks before the month was over and had quite a few dinners left that I couldn't force myself to eat.

You were to eat the meals provided, along with a salad you made yourself. There was no exceptions for going out or any special occasion that might come up.

This was like any other preplanned packaged diet, you can only take so much.

I didn't lose any weight, because I didn't follow exactly and didn't exercise, which is a key factor in any dieting. I was looking for a quick fix, again.

If you happen to be one of the successful ones and lose weight, you can't go back to your regular eating habits.

This diet is so expensive the average person can't pay $300 per month the rest of their lives. I guess if you're not a celebrity you're out of luck.

I would not recommend this diet to anyone, save your money and have the LapBand Surgery like I did. I had it November 6, 2006 and weighed 250 lbs and to date have lost 110 lbs, maintaing a healthy weight of 135-140 lbs.

I could have paid cash for this surgery with all the money I've spent trying to lose the weight promised with each new fad. It's all about portion control!

Note from Dr. Dan


You really make some great points.

There are a lot of programs that can help you lose weight temporarily. But long term weight loss is something else.

What are you supposed to do when you stop the prepackaged foods? You go back to your old eating habits and the weight comes back.
