Re: Nutrisystem TSV
Message 7 of 10 Views. Personally, I would not want to have to eat Nutrisystem or Jenny exclusively in order to lose or maintain my weight. Sometimes the 'm' is silent. QVC is not responsible for the availability, content, security, policies, or practices of the above referenced third-party linked sites nor liable for statements, claims, opinions, or representations contained therein. I would rather choose my own food tastes. Message 10 of 10 Views.
I tried Nutrisystem and did lose weight, but the shakes for belly bloat made me feel bloated and "gassy". They did nothing to "flatten" my stomach at all. Some of the food is ok but alot of it is hard to take. Also you can order directly from Nutrisystem and get free shipping and they do split the payments in two and they are cheaper than QVC. Marie also bought the company for that one fitness item.
I cant remember the name of it. She does train and I think she is more diligent since she is speaking for Nutrisystem and doesn't want to gain any of the weight back. Just like Oprah buying stock in Weight Watchers. She said she lost 40 lbs, but she still looks on the heavy side when I just saw an ad for WW the other day. We have to do what is best for us as far as being healthy. QVC is shoving this down our throats today. I like Marie Osmond - but I'm so sick of her doing endless commercials.
She lost the weight when she was on Dancing With the Stars not from eating NutriSystem garbage food. Then I went travelling - and I gained back more than I lost. It's NOT a good way to lose weight - because u gain it back and more once u eat regular food. It's also VERY expensive. Thank goodness I do not need to lose weight because I cannot stand looking at that awful Nutrisystem food and I have heard it tastes terrible.
All you foods are fresh not frozen and much healthier. No way would I be a slave to some company's frozen prepackaged foods. I don't really need it that bad to subject myself to all the additives and expense, but I was wondering if it worked as well and as easy as they claim.
I did do some googling to find out what others who have tried it thought, and the reviews were about half and half. Thank you, Circles, for the Wal-Mart info, that's something to keep in mind, and thank you Gemmy for the buddy bucks offer, so nice of you! I think you may be right, Desertdi, that you could possibly create your own meals at home, and probably a lot healthier without the additives, which kinda scare me.
Marie looks great, but I've always wondered how Dolly lost all her weight and has stayed so thin! I ordered a big box of Nutrisystem from Q one time. Tried one snack item and sent it all back as I found the snack dry and tasteless. You still have to buy groceries to be on the program, fruits, veggies, etc. Also, something about the unrefrigerated entres seemed a little gross to me. Bulk them up with some non-starchy vegetables or a salad and you have a huge plate of food for lunch or dinner and very few calories.
Add some daily fruit, light yogurt, some well-chosen treats, lots of water, keep a daily food diary to monitor your calories and stay within your allotment and viola! There are lots of blogs, vlogs and youtubers that offer food finds and hints for success to help you along the way. You can try myfitnesspal. You can plan your whole day in advance and adjust accordingly or enter foods as you eat them. There are lots of helpful tools and is a very active community that is very helpful.
I ordered a WW At Home kit online from their site years ago. I've never been to a meeting. This is not the first time I have been on the program and lost a good deal of weight, but did not maintain it because I never accepted that it is a permanent lifestyle change until now. I realize that I am not really capable of guesstimating how much I am eating without keeping a food diary. Once you get the hang of it, it's like second nature.
This isn't worth it. If you aren't willing to do all the extra work, this plan probably isn't for you. No matter what route you go, best of luck eating healthy. From my own experience, you can lose weight by eating normal non diet plan foods that you like, but drastically cutting the caloric intake of those foods.
Rather than do this, I'd check out the Atkins frozen breakfasts and dinners. I am a diabetic that must cut carbs. When I don't feel like cooking, the Atkins frozen meals are my "go to foods".
The dinners are tasty and low carb. I add a kale salad or some brussel sprouts or broccoli. I tried a few Nutrisystem foods that I bought at Big Lots a few years ago, for days when I didn't have time to cook. They were awful and certainly not "healthy" and for me they were really too high in carbs.
