My question is What do you think about Nutrisystem? Hoping for any answer. My 2nd question... Okay, when I got my box of Foods and started sorting them out as to Breakfast, Lunch, dinners and Snacks or rather they are labeled as Deserts....

I find that some of the items such as the Chips and pretzels are designated as Deserts but I find I'm using them more as a side to my soups for my Lunches instead.

... I mean it's not really a desert to me, it's a side like having Chips or Crakers with you soup or other entree'. So why didn't they give me more of those so called Soy /rice chips to have as a side food item? So in the end I'm finding I'm eating up my Chips and Pretzel's and deserts faster?.

I dont' think they did a very good job of food packaging and labeling because we all think of choosing and eating our meals differently. I understand of couse that when you order for the first time you get a general mix of random item. but maybe we should of been asked in a questioniare in what kinds of foods we perfere....

So that I wouldn't have got alot of stuff that I really don't like...example I don't like the Instant soups especially pea soup...Yuck, and I don't like Oriental entree's...

Hmm... I need to find out myself. I don't know what is the answer. I'll do some poking around and get back to you if I find an useful answer. You should email the people at Nutrisystem as they probably could answer your Nutrisystem question..

Customize your order so you only get what you want..

Click on My account (All the way up top left)..

Log in..

Click on manage my Auto Delivery..

Click on Nutrisystem Auto Delivery Details..

Your order will display on the screen..

Remember if you are eating your Desert/Snack with your meal you need to check that off in the meal planner. You don't get to have another one during snack time. Personally I would rather save mine for the in between meal snack and make sure I am eating something every 2-3 hours, than have it with my meal..

Click edit on each meal section you want to edit. Remove what you don't want and select the items you do want...

The items are all clearly marked and it really doesn't matter what you call them as long as you eat one of each category per day. How could it be any simpler? I think a monkey could follow this program. Feel free to call it a snack, treat, chip or whatever. Although you can eat the items in any order at any time of day, it isn't the best approach to eat your lunch and dessert entree together..

Regarding the initial order ... if you made it through NS, you had the option to pick whatever items you wanted. No questionnaire is required, and it would only openNutrisystemup to more complaints. You can exchange any of the items you don't like within 30 days. I picked all my items for the first BBB and still made quite a few exchanges. Now, I am in a groove on my way to goal...

I didn't sign up for Auto delivery, I don't want to keep getting charged for more orders!!!! Also I'm not sure if I want to continue... this was a trial order...So each day I start to wonder that I can do this with out all the expense.. there's just not enough of the foods that I like...Plus it was still.

A bit expensive for me. I dont' think can afford it...

Comment #4

Aren't you following your menu planner that came in the box, or logging your food online? And are you eating just 5 of the packagedNutrisystemfoods per dayhowever you spread them out? If you're eating more theNutrisystemfood than you should each day, yes, it would be hard to afford it!.

I hope that you work out something with theNutrisystemplan or another plan, since you posted that you are pre-diabetic a few days ago. Many people have been helped with NS, I've read, who are pre-d and diabetic. My best to you!..

Comment #5

I'm Pre Diabetic. I'm using the online logging. and I can't understand if it's for Diabetic people why are there so many items that I got I consider Sweet? there seems to be more stuff like Muffins, scones with apples or Chocolate chips, Breakfast bar's, Then I got about 8 lunch Bar's which to me are more like the high cal Energy bars... Most of my dinners contain Pasta which to me is eating alot too many of Carbs? So in a way, it's not really working out for me if I'm not loosing weight... I'm getting not very happy about this because I'm suppose to be loosing weight and I actually gained weight Arrrrr! So I guess I wont' be ordering any more of it. I guess I will have to go to Weight watcher's instead afterall...

Comment #6

Did you call a counselor? They're there to help. This is just my fourth day on the program, so I'm no expert, but it sounds like you're not following the program correctly..

Good luck!..

Comment #7

I don't think any question is a silly question and I don't think a monkey could figure this plan out. It took me a bit of time to get comfortable with the plan and a lot of reading the helpful hints on this forum..

Pegruns - your question is valid - don't worry about people who answer posts harshly - there are so many of us here to help and support !!..

Comment #8

Welcome!! It took me awhile to get used to not having chips with lunch. The plan helps remind us what a good healthy meal looks like and what bad habits we may have to leave behind..

I prefer the salty snacks to the sweet in general. So I order pretzles and chips for my 'dessert.' Follow the book, add in your fruits, veggies and proteins as the book lists and you WILL lose weight. And you probably will learn a great deal about how to eat. Enjoy the plan - it works!!..

Comment #9

I really think we complicate the program by over thinking it and expecting Biggest Loser results. It really is simple if we break it down to it's smallest parts. For example, breakfast entree, hard boiled egg, banana ... done! I wasn't intending to be harsh...

Comment #10

Thank's autthelma,.

I am using the online logging so that I can pick and choose what I want to eat because it seemed alot simplier to type it in than to write it down in a booklet. Yes I am following it as closely as I can....

Now I'm getting some adominal cramping, and some bloating right after I eat some of the meals? not sure what that's all about...but I'm gettint the impression that the meals aren't agreeing with me. I hate having alot of gass and bloating and cramping during work!.

So more and more it tells me that this plan is not going to work with me...

Part of what you are experiencing is normal as your body adjusts to the added fiber from the foods, fruits and vegetables. Chances are that you will experience that on any diet you start. You need to give it a few weeks until you adjust to the plan. Some people have issues with the sugar alcohol in some of the foods and avoid them. Most adjust to it within a week or two..

These are some of the FAQ posted in the.

Dietitian's Corner.


Q: I have been experiencing gas since starting the program. What is causing it?.

A: Sometimes people experience gastrointestinal discomfort when changing their eating habits. The Nutrisystem meal plan has approximately 33-39 grams of fiber which follows the recommended amount, but an increase in fiber in your diet can cause gas and bloating. To help minimize these problems, you could eat cooked vegetables instead of raw. You should also eliminate gas-producing vegetables like legumes and the cabbage family of vegetables. High-fiber fruit can be replaced with juices or canned fruits. You can gradually increase the fiber back into your diet as tolerated as your body adapts.

If you notice a problem after eating foods with these ingredients, a counselor can give you a list of foods that contain sugar alcohols..

Q: I have developed constipation. What can I do?.

A: When you're on a weight loss program, bowel movements may become smaller and less frequent because less food is being consumed. If you feel constipated, be sure that you are eating high-fiber fruit and vegetables. Prunes are a good natural laxative to help with constipation (three prunes equal one fruit serving). Water is also helpful; in general, 6 to 8 - eight ounce glasses or 48-64 ounces of water daily is recommended. General aerobic exercise like walking is also stimulating to the bowel. Additionally, two tablespoons of wheat bran can be added to the meal plan to help relieve constipation.

For use of any over-the-counter medications or fiber supplements, you should consult your physician..

Q: I am experiencing diarrhea. What is the cause?.

A: Some individuals who suffer from diarrhea may have a common intolerance to milk called lactose intolerance. If you are lactose intolerant, Lactaid milk may be beneficial. Also, choosing more low-fat protein choices (instead of dairy choices) will be helpful in this situation. Diarrhea can also result from a sudden increase in fiber. To help minimize these problems, you can use cooked vegetables instead of raw. The cooking process will help eliminate some of the fiber content.

If the problem persists, please contact your physician..

Please don't be so quick to throw in the towel. Any new diet will take a period of adjustment. Making excuses and giving up is something we all have done and in the long run doesn't help...

I will probaby finish out the Months worth of Food. and see how things go. I looked at my finances, and I can't afford to buy any more Months on it. I just wanted to try it again and see if it will work for me the 2nd time around? But it's just going to be too expensive to keep it up...
