NutriSystem Diet Review

You won't find an honest Nutrisystem diet review that doesn't bring up the fact that Nutrisystem Inc makes their money off the fact that the vast majority of people on this program only last on this program for 10 weeks.

They lose the weight they wanted, and then come back in less than a year to lose the weight all over again.

Sure, some people become completely disillusioned with the concept of losing weight by eating pre-packaged foods with questionable amounts of salt and unnaturally produced fat substitutes and proteins. But that is not where the money is.

The Nutrisystem diet is comprised of 3 shelf stable beginnings of a meal and 2 snacks per day.
You will have to supply your own fresh ingredients to round out these starter nutrisystem meals.

Nutrisystem Inc, has been around since the 1970's when they got started selling diet shakes. They moved on to creating Nutrisystem Meals that were sold through diet centers that operated very much like Jenny Craig, since that is where the founder came from. In the 90's Nutrisystem Inc declared bankruptcy and majority control was purchased by an investment group that put Nutrisystem Inc on a diet of its own. They closed down all of the weight loss centers and started up a direct shipping company that ran on the internet using call centers to handle customer coaching.

But that is really outside of my Nutrisystem diet review.

Today Nutrisystem Inc, is really Nutrisystem online.
It is a system based around getting dieters to eat Nutrisystem Diet Food for 3 meals and 2 snacks a day.
Depending on which plan you chose, you will be consuming between 1200 and 1500 calories at around a cost of $300 per month, Plus the cost of the fruits and vegetables you will need to add to the nutrisystem meals to actually get your proper nutrition.

The Big Marketing words you will here today are about the Nutrisystem Glycemic Index foods. This is a a great set of Buzz words, telling you that you will be getting 55% of your calories from carbohydrates that are better for you.
Besides, it sounds really good, doesn't it?

Nutrisystem Glycemic Index

I really like the ring of that.

In my Nutrisystem Diet Review, I can't say that you won't lose weight on this program.
Nor can I say that it is not based around realistic scientific principles.

Because, in preparing for this Nutrisystem Diet Review...
I found that, in General, this program sticks to the 7 Habits of Weight loss. And if you concentrate on them while putting yourself through eating boxed meals 3 times a day, You will lose weight.

But what are you going to do when you've met your weight loss goals?
How are you going to keep that weight off?
Can you eat Nutrisystem Diet food forever?

You need to learn the proper portion control that this system teaches you.
You need to learn to eat a well balanced nutritional set of meals multiple times a day so that you don't get hungry and binge.

So, I can't make this Nutrisystem diet review completely negative.
It will work for some people who can stick to it. But to make it permanent, it is just not enough.
