You CAN do it. You just have to order carefully. I wish you luck. You can do, I know you can. It is so nice to read a positive article about Nutrisystem.

You are so right about your body becoming used to the smaller portions. Like anything, your body goes through an adjustment period, but after a few days, it is quite easy. With frequent snacks between meals, as well as plenty of fluids, you are eating pretty much whenever you feel hungry. Hi, thanks for the great review! Thanks for the nice comment: Excited to hear how Nutrisystem goes for you — let us know! Hi Ellen — You definitely need to talk with your doctor before trying Nutrisystem or any weight loss plan with your health issues, but they do offer a plan for people with diabetes.

I would recommend checking out their site to learn more about the different plans they offer. They also offer snacks and shakes as options over the course of the day, so that helps with the extra cravings too. Hope that helps, and best of luck with your weight loss journey! Someone in my Myspace group shared this website with us so I came to give it a look.

Exceptional blog and brilliant design and style. Thanks for the kind words and for visiting the site — let me know your Twitter handle so I can return the favor! Those first 2 weeks i dropped 13 lbs, but that third week i lost maybe 1 lb.

I was only eating the provided meals the first two weeks usually around only calories per day obviously that was unhealthy, so i added in a few snacks to put me right around calories per day. But unfortunately that has resulted in minimal weight loss. Did you have plateaus like this? And how did you over come these stalls?

I did just purchase an elliptical and also a stationary bike, but only on day 2 with those. Your review was wonderful and very well written, so thank you!

Hi Julie- Thank you so much for sharing your story, and way to go for making it through your first month! I think the calorie restriction is the hardest part about Nutrisystem, and why now I typically only do the diet for a month or two and then really focus on just eating right and getting enough exercise after that.

For me, the approach after Nutrisystem has been intermittent fasting IF. That said, I have had a lot of success with it, and find that I can maintain a healthy weight for long stretches of time when using it. I started with the turbo charge and continued now for almost 3 weeks.

I have only lost 3 lbs. When I emailed a counselor they said that was normal and I was doing well. Big hope very disappointed. In any case, hope the rest of your month goes well, and best of luck moving forward. I just started Nutrisystem.

I always lost weight on the low carb diet when I was younger. But the fat intake was not good. Just to avoid all the carbs… Did you or anyone else have a issue with how many carbs are in each meal?

Is this ok lol… Please someone assure me all the carbs are ok! Thanks for visting, and best of luck with your first month! Thanks for the excellent review and videos. Excited to see what kind of progress I can make. Hi Krystal — thanks for visiting the site, and taking the time to read my review and watch the videos. Always happy to hear that it helped!

Thanks for the great info and for sharing your story! Thanks for the kind words, June! Congrats on taking the first step and best of luck with Nutrisystem — hope it goes well! I mastered more new things on this fat reduction issue. An enormous reduction in junk food, sugary foods, fried foods, sugary foods, beef, and white flour products may perhaps be necessary. Holding wastes unwanted organisms, and wastes may prevent ambitions for fat-loss.

While specific drugs for the short term solve the situation, the unpleasant side effects are certainly not worth it, plus they never present more than a short-term solution. Many thanks sharing your thinking on this weblog.

Thanks for the input Saul. Have you ever considered creating an ebook or guest authoring about Nutrisystem on other sites? I know my readers would appreciate your work. If you are even remotely interested, feel free to send me an email. Hi Lance — I actually do have an eBook in the works, so stay tuned for that!

I just wanted to say that this post is awesome, well written and lots of useful Nutrisystem info. Looking forward to my first shipment. Hi Corburt — Thanks for the kind words, and best of luck with your first month — hope it goes well! I just wanted to offer you a huge thumbs up for the great information you have right here on this post. I will be returning to your site for more soon! This blog looks exactly like my old one!

Great choice of colors! Really inspired by your story — thanks for sharing! I am planning to start Nutrisystem after the New Year. Hi Erin — Thanks so much for the positive feedback. The first time I ever used Nutrisytem, which was many years ago at this point, I think I was one it for 4 months. I had a lot more weight to lose then; now when I sign up, I usually use it for a month, maybe two at the most.

To lock in the auto delivery deal, you have to commit to two months, so if you hit your weight loss goals after month 1, I recommend switching your order to just the Turbo Shakes — that will ensure you lock in the most savings, and also helps to keep you on track once you start transitioning off the program. As I have said before, you have to be committed to the program to get results, but as long as you follow their plan you will lose weight!

Anyways, best of luck and please let us know how it goes: Thanks for sharing your story. Drinking over ounces and eating tons of leafy greens. I did NS about 4 years ago lost almost This past July was told my chloerstral and blood pressure was too high for 28 year old.

So black Friday I ordered when prices decreased. Hi Amanda — Thanks for visiting and reading my story. Hope it goes as well this time around. Thanks for sharing your superb review. You have a lot of good info here. I am looking for a diet to try just after the new year, and this might be the one.

Either way, appreciate all of the details you shared. Thanks, just what I was looking for. I have about 20 pounds to lose — is this doable in a month or two? Hi Sam — Thanks for the positive feedback. Losing 20 pounds is definitely doable with Nutrisystem, but I would budget at least two months. I signed up for Nutrisystem this week, and I am really hoping that I have the same results. I think my first shipment should arrive just before Christmas, so think I will get started right after the holiday.

Thanks so much for the review — definitely gives me hope! Hi Kris — congrats on signing up — while results will vary for everyone, I truly believe that you will lose a lot of weight if you follow the program — so stick with it, and let us know how it goes.

They try to rip you off when quit their auto delivery program. Very very unpleasant people to deal with. They shipped me stuff 3 days after I had already cancelled and had a confirmation number stating I cancelled.

They refused to turn the shipment around or to take it back and are trying to create some kind of lie that I created a 2nd account in November and they only cancelled one account. The only thing I did in November was update my credit card expiration date which I regret.

If I guaranteed no more shipments are coming to my name or my address that should be the end of the story, not with them! I am fighting them through my credit card company but please be aware of whatever traps they have in store for any of you. Hi Troy — Sorry to hear that that was your experience.

It was actually a customer service rep who told me I could switch from the meal delivery to just the Turbo Shakes after my first month on the program to lock in the auto-delivery savings without having to commit to another month of food.

In any case, I hope you are able to get things resolved! I started the program today, January 1st. My resolution is to feel better about myself, but do it in a healthy way that had structure. How much and when I should be eating vegetables, and ideas on what to eat if you have to attend a social function or business based meeting that involves food.

Thanks for posting a well written, and information overview of this program. I have three questions and maybe one is a question for a NS counselor… 1. Or can tomatoes, cukes, etc. Also, plain or with some sort of dressing? How many turbo shakes can you have per week… and when can they be consumed? Thanks in advance …. Hi Tami — Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to comment! I always add extra veggies to my greens and have found the only thing you really need to watch out for is the salad dressing.

But for me, cucumbers, tomatoes, etc. I usually have my TurboShake midday — around 2: That said, I would definitely suggest using the Nutrisystem counseling service for full clarification, though — especially for questions 2 and 3. Best of luck if you decide to try the full program! I wanted to say that this article is nicely written and included almost all the vital info I needed.

Thanks for the review. I second your recommendation for Nutrisystem. Their service helped me significantly a few years ago. Hoping for the same results! Hi Maria — thanks for commenting!

Hope it goes well again if you decide to give it another try. Have you found that Nutrisystem is a good way for keeping the weight off over the long term? How long do you really have to be on Nutrisystem before you starting seeing results? Just finished month 1 and lost about 9 pounds! This post could not be written any better! Reading this post reminds me of my good old room mate!

He was always trying new weight loss products. I will forward this page to him. Fairly certain he will have a good read. Thank you for sharing! I just read this well written post. I have a handicapped daughter who has gained so much weight. We have tried everything with very little success. After taking to her doctors we decided to give NS a try. She started the program on February 16, She is loving the food and the program. She has already dropped three pounds. Her beginning weight was So she has a long way to go.

But the support and your post will definitely help her obtain her goals for healthier lifestyle. We will keep you informed on her progress. Thank you so much. Hi Shirley — What an inspirational story — really hoping she has success! Thanks for keeping us posted, and wishing your daughter all the best. I suppose its ok to use some of your ideas!! I have been on Nutrisystem for about 5 weeks now.

I lost 15 pounds the first month and have been following it to a T. The food tastes fine and it is very easy to just grab something pop it in the microwave if necessary and go. I have been using My Fitness Pal to track my food and am eating about calories a day.

The first week was really tough and I had a hard time, but I stuck to it. Now I m satisfied and use to it. Planning on finishing up the second month and then on the 3rd month working in more home cooked meals and tracking to stay at the same calorie level. Then will switch over to the auto ship of Turbo shakes for my 4th month. I have about 40 pounds to lose and feel like I am making some good headway with the Nutrisystem plan. Good job on the review, very well written.

Wow, nice job Carolyn! Thanks for sharing your story, and best of luck with the rest of your diet. I was very happy to find this website. Just wanted to thank for your time for this wonderful read, and inspirational review!! Hi Kelly — sorry to hear that! Have you tried connecting with the Nutrisystem counseling service?

We had to take Nutrisystem program for 8 weeks because we got it at a discount thru our insurance company. My goal was to loose 30 lbs. At the end of the 8 weeks I had lost only 3 lbs. We did not care for the cardboard like food and did not get anywhere close to our goals. This program obviously works for lots of folks, but not for us. We did go to the Naturally Slim program and in 8 weeks I lost Naturally Slim is based on not what you eat but when and how you eat and you eat your own real food and got real results.

We will stay with our new habits learned with Naturally Slim and will not have any good words from our Nutrisystem experience. Hi John — thanks for sharing your experience. Thanks so much for sharing your story. Funny to me cause most people actually argue in favor of the scout without knowing it.

Which is the whole point in the first place, one rifle that can do a little bit of everything. Look at how many used firearms on Gunbroker are not getting any bids because of this. Typical of my local conditions. Somebody wants to buy a used something, they want you to basically give it to them.

That same somebody wants sell that same used something, well, it has appreciated in value rather than depreciated. Case in point, last gun show I went to why bother at this point there was a decent Zastava M88, probably about 25 years old, complete with holster wear and Interarms stamp.

People got scared and maxxed out their credit cards thinking hillary was going to win. This is a good time to buy a new gun if you need one. According to Jeff Cooper a Scout rifle should also strive to be light. This Ruger is over 7 pounds empty. One of my very favorites for ridiculously hilarious reviews is the can of uranium ore: I thought I was going to have a seizure. That is some funny stuff there! This was one of the reasons for the forward mounted scope.

My Norinco M14, with It uses removable box magazines so it sort of cancels out the need for stripper clips. Double stack mags have the advantage of more capacity for a given mag length but using the single stack one allows the controlled round feed action and often a slimmer receiver and more direct-into-the-chamber feeding and such. Nailed a big warthog running full out at yards. And exactly what Cooper intended it for.

People in the field needing a practical, dependable and capable rifle that can take most any game out they come across. I use this as my primary hunting rifle for the Coast range. Usually with iron sights, I rarely use the optic. With the scope off a bench I can get a.

The laminate stock weighs more. You could eliminate some weight off this rifle with a different stock and some changes in the metal work. For example, why have a brake or flash hider? Hollow out the bolt handle, make some lightening cuts on the receiver, flute the barrel.

It can be done. For many shooters, a rifle under 7. Sheep hunters seem to be the market for these punishing rifles. Really, if you want to see a modern and thoroughly ridiculous concept for a cartridge, look no further than things like the. Alas, some nations in Africa set an arbitrary standard for required rifle chambering at a minimum of 0.

It was with this restriction in mind that Steyr came out with the. This is why Steyr and Cooper thought. The 7mm08 wins every time. The ultralight magnum craze is pure foolishness. And to compensate for the ludicrous recoil, an equally ludicrous muzzle break is attached, making the entire experience of shooting horrible for the shooter and doubly horrible for anyone around the shooter.

Has no one ever heard of a biathlon sling? An extra 2lbs on the rifle will feel a whole hell of a lot better on the shoulder, improve your shooting, and slung up right you will never feel it on your back. It makes my heat sing to hear someone whos opiniom I hold in such high regard referring to one of my favorite pet calibers. My FS in 9. Had a full Mannlicher stock on it and the wood was great.

They actually have at least two s in stock in 9. I run a vx3I- 1. My Ruger American in. Not sure of what the point is for this rifle other than for those that like short barrels.

I mounted a x scope to see what it was truly capable of. Not a scout fan. I did purchase a Springfield scout squad, removed the rail, and put a standard hand guard. Then had it cerakoted in a nice tiger strip cammo. Love the size, and some of the best iron sight out there. I think it could fill the roll of a scout rifle if needed minus the scope.

Now I just need to swap out that loud a muzzle brake for a good flash hider. I like the idea that it uses M or M1A magazines that are lots cheaper than the proprietary Ruger mags.

I did a water transfer blue and grey USN pattern cameo on the stock and it looks pretty cool. Great gun and easy for a smaller person to manage. Seeing AR height optic mounts on a bolt gun makes my eyes bleed. Do you really not know any better? Did you guys even test it in any kind of realistic field positions? Those were the only things I had when it came to taking photos!

I joked about it in the text of the review, but perhaps you skipped the words? Just here for the photos? The mount does appear to have a see-through hole that might, in theory, allow to use irons.

Moot point, though, because rear peep signt is removed. Get a 94 Swedish Mauser carbine, put it in a lighter stock, equip it with a good set of peep sights and call it good. I followed the link to guns in hope that they had a good price on the Tikka T3X CTR which is a comparable to this rifle , but no joy.

Thankfully my inability to commit on willingness to spend between the Steyr and the Ruger has kept my from buying one at all… so far. My family has shot many Wyoming deer and antelope with it, mostly one shot kills, including a yard one shot affair. A touch heavy, but plenty accurate.

Save for forward rail, iron sight no one bothers to use and round box, is there any benefit of this rifle over, say, another Ruger like American Rifle with compact 4x scope? Just a slight qualm with the article, if I remember correctly Mr. Cooper wanted a semi-automatic action in the Scout rifle. He opined that that would add too much weight, so it was never made a huge priority in the rifle. Importantly, this group was shot from a cold barrel.

Once experimentation moved to higher round counts, barrel heating started to play havoc with paper target accuracy.
