What Makes Nutrisystem Different
In addition, to make it even tastier, you can add your choice of cereals and muffins, as well as oatmeal to the meals. People can bad mouth NS all they want, not going to change my plan unless it harms me physically. You can avoid all animal products and still lose weight with Nutrisystem, with over 90 vegetarian options. As with any major change to your diet, application of a new diet plan, or exercise regimen, you should seek the advice of your doctor. I keep my food logs and use the tools as needed. I have quit most of the diets I began before I was even on the diet for a month. I lost twenty pounds in two months.
How Nutrisystem Works
The email was courteous, professional, and apologetic for the experience I had. The rep went on to offer replacement of the damaged food items I had received and encouraged me to give their company another try. In light of this swift response and their sincere desire to ensure that I was happy with their product and service, I am revising my review.
I accepted a ready-made menu that containing some items that I did not enjoy. In the future, I will make a point to select food items that I now know to be more to my liking than others. I am very pleased and heartened by Nutrisystem's timely reply and concern for my purchase. They deserve a second chance. I ordered my month's supply of diet food from Nutrisystem with high hopes.
When the food shipment arrived, most of the frozen breakfast items were broken into small bits; when I opened the packages, the bits fell out. Then I tried the frozen lunches. Since I take these to work, the only heating option is microwave. Anything with bread or chicken comes out chewy, gooey, and icy cold in the center. It actually made me gag and lose my appetite, which wasn't the diet plan I expected.
I am very careful when reading agreements, and for this item to be overlooked was no easy feat. Fineprint at the end will do that to you. To add insult to injury, the obnoxious customer service person on the phone refused to accept my cancellation until she badgered me with questions and hard sell tactics in a desperate attempt to keep me buying their awful food.
Overall, this was a horrible experience. I will never use or recommend Nutrisystem again. We are so sorry to hear about your poor experience with the delivery of your foods, the food itself, and the representative you dealt with.
We will be taking a peek at your account and reaching out soon. Was not satisfied with the taste of most of the foods, had to throw it away and buy something else, and most of the desserts had an ok flavor, And a lot of meals with cheese. I was not happy with that. My first order included items I didn't order and one that I'm allergic to its ingredients. I was told by one person the items were probably substitutions and when ready they would be replaced.
When I called the customer service lady was very rude, basically stated I was lying and wouldn't allow me to speak to a supervisor. I'm very disappointed with the service I receive so I will take my business to a place that has better customer service. Went thru a few months of products. Following it closely and exercised Sent email to customer support and I was told to think of it as not wasted but I received nutritional food with fiber Now I know why it only got one star.
Weight loss system worksstale product and no one to answer to except counselors with no control. I emailed three correspondences to FIVE different departments only to receive a notice that they don't reply to emails because they were too busy. I also included to them pictures of the moldy carrot cake, along with the packaging that states the date is still okay.
The oatmeal is so stale it sticks to the side of the package and had to pour hot water in the bag to get the product out. Chocolate covered pretzels are stale. We did call and the rep was very nice and stated that she couldn't do anything except replace our stale food. How many packages were bad? I honestly didn't count how many items I threw awayat their prices ANY wasted product is too many!
Doesn't anyone there want to see a photo of the stale food? Does anyone there care? VERY poor about keeping the customer happy, however, are not timid about selling you the program. Shame on you, Nutrisystem. We are sorry to hear about the spoiled and stale items you received. We will be reviewing your account and reaching out soon.
I am not sure why in today's time of electronics that it takes so long to get the information. We are sorry to hear that it took you so long to receive the information you needed for the program.
We will be reaching out shortly. Pleased with the conversation with my counselor. I feel I have a better handle on what I should be doing.
I am looking forward to losing the weight I have set my goal for. Thank you very much for your help. We are happy to hear that you feel like you understand the program better after speaking with one of our counselors. Please let us know if there is anything else we can do to help! I wrote in with a few complaints about some of the food I received; some broken food, bags not sealed and crushed muffins. Allison was very helpful and courteous and was able to change my mood. Thank you Allison for being pleasant and helpful.
Thank you for the kind words! We will be sure to pass this compliment onto Allison. Keep up the excellent work on the program, Chris! I didn't know this when I originally call to cancel my account. Not that I like it, I understand that it was to be paid now. I was on hold for several minutes and when he finally came back he proceeded to tell me that his supervisor was at lunch and would called me back when she returned, "Oh and by the way here's your confirmation for your cancellation".
At that time I received an email from my PayPal account, advising me that I just made a payment to Nutrisystem. The man had the nerve to charge my account while he had me on hold.
I have called every day, each rep has told me what he did was ok. This is so sad, that he could do this behind my back and it be ok. My call is being reviewed now sure it is but, we all know how this is going to end. I will continue to call each day until I get a callback. He knew what he was doing was wrong, why else would he have to sneak and charge me.
I want an apology and someone to tell me what he did was wrong! 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.
I wanted to lose 25 pounds and did not know how to start. I am busy all the time and knew I did not have time to cook homemade super healthy meals. I also knew I did not have time to attend meetings about weight loss. Nutrisystem worked perfect for me. Pretty soon I was losing weight. Who would have guessed it could be this easy? I also receive support and motivation from the website whenever I needed it, unlike with support groups that are only once a week.
For me, the best part of Nutrisystem is that I did not have to worry about what to cook to stay healthy, because Nutrisystem provided all the meals I eat already cooked. Also when you want to eat out, you just follow the Nutrisystem approved list of what to eat so that you do not eat the wrong things. I have lost the 25 pounds I wanted to lose and now I know how to eat better.
Since we have been married over thirty years, you can imagine just how much weight I have put on over the years. We decided to book a vacation over the summer to a tropical paradise.
There was just one problem. None of my swimming trunks fit anymore. So, I tried the Nutrisystem diet for older men, the Silver plan. I was surprised by how good the food tasted. It was easy to prepare. The only downside was slow shipping, but that could be because we live out in the middle of nowhere.
I just wish it was coming off faster. Anyway, Nutrisystem's program is extremely easy to follow. There are not any meetings to attend with the program, but you do have 24 hour support via their website. All in all, it is good program. I love the restaurant guide that Nutrisystem provided. It allows me to go out to eat and still stay on the diet.
I also like the fact that if I want I can add things from the grocery store to supplement my menu. Good for getting the fresh veggies I crave. Because all the food is already prepared I was very afraid I would not like any of the foods. I like almost all of the food I have tried so far.
However, the portions of food seem a bit small. At first I was pretty hungry on the program; however, my body has adjusted to eating right and I no longer feel hungry. My favorite food from the program is the fudge brownie. It is delicious and I am glad that I can still eat a brownie now and then. I think having healthy deserts in their plans helps you keep from breaking the diet and binging on sugar snacks.
I lost twenty pounds in two months. Combined with drinking plenty of water and exercise, I really feel that anyone can lose the weight. Replacing those unhealthy snacks with the approved Nutrisystem snacks helped curb my cravings throughout the day. I am a fifty-five year old man, so I signed up for the Silver plan, which has a lot of great foods to choose from. Those two dinners I could eat everyday, and they were really easy to make.
My cupboards were full, so that was a really good thing to see. My stomach was also full. I always had enough to eat and never felt hungry. I cannot complain too much about the Nutrisystem program. Overall it is a good program. I needed to lose weight for health reasons and the Nutrisystem vegetarian plan has helped me lose 15 pounds so far.
So far the program has been very easy to follow and very helpful. I do not like all of Nutrisystem's foods, which is the one grip I have. I have tried a few of them that I did not like at all such as the red beans and rice. However, a person is only required to pay for the food he eats so I only order the foods I know I am going to like. The mushroom risotto is very good.
The pancakes are good and the vegetable fajita is delicious. I would recommend the program to any veggie trying to lose weight. I am a construction worker. I wanted to slim down, even though I get regular exercise. My co-worker suggested I sign up with the Silver plan on Nutrisystem. He thought I might be able to lose weight but not feel hungry. Well, I did lose weight, but I was also kind of hungry most days.
They were kind of dry and chewy. The lunch and dinners were really good. I wish I could have gotten more of them, but I doubt I would have lost weight if I ate those all day.
Overall, I would continue this diet if I liked the snacks better. I only knew I wanted to lose weight and eat healthier. I knew cutting meat out of my diet would allow me to be a healthier person. Although I knew I wanted to cut meat out of my diet and lose weight I had no idea of how to do that.
The meals are already prepared, which makes it a really easy diet to follow. The whole program is laid out for you, so all you have to do is follow it. So far the program has worked well for me. I can eat foods that taste great without having to worry about over eating.
Most of the food tastes great. I love eating salty, starchy foods and with the Nutrisystem program I even get to eat cheese puffs. I really enjoy eating and with Nutrisystem I do not have to give up eating foods that taste good. With the vegetarian plan I can even go to a restaurant and use the restaurant guide that Nutrisystem provides to help you eat right. Their food is delicious, and I would eat it as often as possible. I work in an office, and I used to find myself snacking on chips and fattening snacks.
My co-workers would come up to my desk and ask for a few bites it was so good. The meals were good, too. I love cooking, so I was able to make some really great meals by adding fresh fruits and vegetables.
I would make the main dish, like the Homestyle Beef and Mashed Potatoes, and also add blanched asparagus or snap peas, and make a side salad with light dressing. Since starting the diet, I have lost quite a bit of weight, and have felt more confident to start dating again. My new girlfriend loves coming over so I can cook for her, but I never feel tempted to eat her food, only my Nutrisystem meals that I have doctored up a bit. If you want to start a diet program, but are afraid to start one because you have already tried many diet programs and failed at them all, then Nutrisystem might be for you.
One great thing about Nutrisystem is that they offer a seven day money back guarantee. The guarantee means that if you decide the program is not going to work for you, Nutrisystem will give you your money back.
No questions asked and no push back from the customer service people. I was correct because I have lost nothing but weight. I started the program two months ago and I have lost 18 pounds. Losing weight and being able to keep it off feels great. Fitting into old jeans feels great too.
I feel much healthier than I did before I started the Nutrisystem program. Some of the foods on the menu that I think are delicious are the apple cinnamon oatmeal, the honey mustard pretzel sticks, the hearty minestrone soup, the Italian herb flatbread pizza, the vegetarian chili, the blueberry muffins and of course their version of the snickers bar: If you have tried other diets that did not work and still want to lose weight I recommend Nutrisystem.
I used to make very fattening food, so I knew cooking myself had to stop if I wanted to lose weight. The meals arrived in little containers that were easy to store. Whenever I was really hungry, I would fill up my water bottle, grab one of the Chocolate Bar snacks or a piece of fruit, and go for a walk.
I ate the meals and the snacks, but I also wanted fresh produce. I liked some of the meals, but I usually cooked them with lots of vegetables and had a glass of wine with dinner. All in all, I will be continuing the Nutrisystem Silver plan because I like the convenience and I am still allowed to cook in addition to the packaged meals.
The snacks are excellent and portable, which is great for exercising on the go. I love seeing people who are used to seeing me heavier see me for the first time in awhile. There first reaction is wow you look good. The Nutrisystem diet plan comes with a money back guarantee and teaches you how to eat properly. The program allows online access to the Nutrisystem website so that I can track my progress and chat with others who are also on the diet.
My mom was on NS a couple of years ago and she lost 40 pounds, so I knew if she could do it, so could I. This is the part my mom kept harping on about and now I see why. After the first few weeks of being on the Nutrisystem Silver diet plan, I really started to notice the weight coming off. My day was planned out perfectly using the online diet planner.
I could get up in the morning, go for my morning jog, come back and have black coffee and a breakfast bar or the Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal, pack my lunch for work plus a snack and an apple, come home from work and do twenty minutes of yoga, and then do whatever family things needed to be done.
My wife was kind enough to make the family meal while I made my own dinners. After dinner, I could have chocolate for dessert! I rarely felt hungry. My kids are in high school, and they love that I am getting healthier and in shape. My wife has been getting up in the mornings and going for jogs with me. With our busy lifestyle, it has been nice to be able to find time to spend with her, and still be able to do something good for my body.
When I thought about joining Nutrisystem, I decided to create an account and then see if they emailed me any discounts.
I feel like I have a mom somewhere baking meals for me and then delivering them to me - such a nice feeling: I hate attending meetings when I am on a diet. Instead I feel judged. I hate having to weigh in on a scale in front of someone else. With the Nutrisystem program, instead of going to a meeting, I can track my progress online. I can also get support and chat with others who are using Nutrisystem online. Every time I have a weak moment, I can log on and get instant support to stay the course.
My favorite part is that the program offers an affordable way for someone to go vegetarian and lose weight without a lot of thinking involved. I was worried that I would be starving when I joined the program.
I was also worried that I would not like any of the foods they had to offer. Nutrisystem has great food. With something like 70 different menu options, there are plenty of other dishes to try. So, I sign up during the winter to keep the weight off, and then go back to my normal diet during the summer.
However, this year, I decided to stay on the Nutrisystem plan all year because I was starting to miss the food! There was only one problem I had, and that was on a three month order. I only received one box when I should have received two. They were very helpful and though they were unable to locate the second box, they did replace my order for free.
They even threw in a few free meals since I was such a loyal customer! I am really glad that I signed up for this plan. The tools such as the menu, diary, restaurant guide and the website were all extremely helpful. I enjoyed being able to track my progress on the website.
I also enjoyed being able to chat live with counselors if I was having problems. I also liked the idea that I could talk to other individuals on the program for extra support on website if I ever needed it. The only problem I had with the program was that I did not enjoy the foods very much as they are almost all frozen meals.
Nutrisystem does offer some that are not frozen, like the snacks and deserts, however the majority of the meals are indeed pre-packaged and frozen. The foods are prepared well and others might actually enjoy eating them. However, I have just never cared for frozen food. The customer service and everything were great, but here is a review of my favorite foods in the Nutrisystem Silver plan.
As you can tell, I really like cinnamon, but there were also some really great fruity flavored options. Lunches were great, too. Dinner was my favorite meal of the day. I was able to eat lots of hearty foods and add my favorite cooked vegetables according to my plan.
My favorite food was the Lasagna and the Meatloaf. I loved the meaty textures and the tastes. I enjoy the website. I enjoy chatting with others who are also on the Nutrisystem program. And most importantly, I enjoy tracking my progress on the website. One of my favorite things about the Nutrisystem program is that they included a restaurant guide.
I am a working women and my job includes going out to lunch with clients. With other diets it is impossible to lose weight because of the fact that I must go out to eat. The food I eat at home through the Nutrisystem program is very good.
It is full of flavor and it tastes great. My favorites are the pasta parmesan with broccoli, the vegetable fajita, the vegetarian chili is delicious and the split pea soup is pretty good too.
Also with the Nutrisystem program I get to eat things like cheese puffs and deserts like the chocolaty nougat bar with peanuts and caramel. Great Program for Older Men 4 out of 5 stars. It was fast to make, perfectly portioned, and very tasty. I never felt hungry and the food was easy to make. I also love the literature and online tools available to help me track my calories, and keep my exercise routine in place. The cost for food comes to about ten dollars a day for three meals plus snacks that keep me full all day.
So the cost is no problem. I used to spend much more every day for food. I used to be a cookie addict. My family is very proud of me for keeping my cookie cravings in check. I am a busy working woman. My hectic work schedule was beginning to catch up with me. I was beginning to pack on the pounds. I was busy working all of the time. When I was at home I did not feel like cooking a good meal after working all day. Therefore, I was eating unhealthy and gaining weight.
I decided to try a diet. I knew I needed a diet that was going to be easy to follow. It seemed like exactly what I needed to lose weight. I have been on the plan for two months and have lost 15 pounds. I am very pleased with the weight I have lost. I am very happy that I can fit into clothes that I could not fit into for the past year.
I feel very proud of myself and I owe it all to Nutrisystem. I love that I do not have to count calories or weigh out portions. I also like most of the food that nutrisystem offers. Helped Get Me Back on Track 4 out of 5 stars. I have been on diets before, especially in my forties. Now I can eat real food that is easy to make and tastes really good. I also like the online meal planner and calorie counter. She has been exercizing too so we can prepare for our retirement to Florida in the summer.
I think we will both be bathing suit ready by spring. The plan has inspired me to work out and become as healthy as I can be. When I first started seeing weight loss results with Nutrisystem I was so excited. I began to feel good about myself again. Because of how great I was feeling I decided to start exercising daily. I feel better than I have felt in years and I owe it all to Nutrisystem. After having four children I was overweight and depressed. I did not feel healthy and I did not feel good about myself.
Today I am losing weight and I am no longer depressed. I know I am working towards a sexy and healthy body. Nutrisystem's foods are delicious. If I am craving sweets I can eat a fudge brownie or apple strudel bar. If I am craving starch I can eat cheese puffs or nachos. Since I have been eating healthy I do not crave starch or sugar very often. I just eat what I am supposed to eat and it tastes delicious.
The dinners are delicious. For dinner I can have Italian herb flatbread pizza or pasta parmesan. I can chose from many other dishes and they all taste great. That would be helpful so I can see what my daily calorie intake is.
Thank goodness I have automatic refills on my Nutrisystem food, or I would be out of luck. My favorites are definitely the dinners. I used to sit up and watch late night talk shows and just eat. Then again, I never liked meatloaf. Everyone I see tells me how great I am looking.
I am a busy women and I enjoy eating. When I cook I love the food so I overeat. With Nutrisystem I do not have to cook but the food still tastes great. All the food portions are already measured out and I do not have to count calories. I just eat the food, enjoy the taste and lose weight. For breakfast I can eat things like cinnamon buns or egg frittata.
