Nutrisystem Allows You to Enjoy Regular Food

For 16 weeks, Lori Jackson, a mom of three and grandmother to two, will be checking in with DietsInReview.com to share her personal experience with Nutrisystem. The good, the bad, and everything in between, see first-hand how the Nutrisystem program works.

Nutrisystem Week 7

Hope your week has been as wonderful as mine.  Had a birthday this week and finally got most of the new place unpacked. And got to spend time with my two daughters, two granddaughters, my mother and my great son-in-law. That is all I need for a birthday. My daughter made a wonderful dinner for me of salmon, asparagus, and roasted sweet potatoes. I love that with the Nutrisystem meal plan we are not strapped to our micro dinners all the time, that we can step out and eat regular foods and still stay in the realm of the plan.

Working Out as Important as Meals with Nutrisystem Meal Plan

Nutrisystem Week 6

Hope you all had a great week, because I sure did. The scale is moving, the body is changing, and the weather has cooled off. That is a trifecta if I ever saw one.

I work in a warehouse where it’s typically very hot, which means I get a pretty generous workout during my work day. Since it is cooling off, that means my “at work” workout is not going to get me as far. I’m still walking 8-10 miles every day (per my pedometer) but in cooler conditions, so I will have to start my regular workouts on the Wii again, like the Wii Sports boxing that is a lot of fun… and a huge workout!

Nutrisystem Week 5

Hi everyone! I Hope your week has been a good one. With the heat all around the country I hope you are all staying well hydrated. Not sure how? Check out How to Stay Hydrated in the Summer.

I had a few challenges this week because I moved over the weekend. So with that you have the packing, loading, unloading and unpacking, arranging all the rooms the way you want them, and you get too tired and don’t eat when you should. This was the problem for me this week. I am still unpacking but I have started paying more attention to what I’m doing.

It is so easy to fall back into the habits of running down the street to grab something that is made than to get the micowave ready and find the box with my meals in it. While also trying to decide what sounds good, when nothing does. As a result, no weight loss this week – but also no weight gain either. (more…)

Nutrisystem Week 4

Hi everyone! This week I was over at the Nutrisystem Facebook page and was reading all the comments. I ran across this one girl who is having a bit of the same problem as I am. I can see and feel dramatic changes in the way I feel and the way my body looks. Clothes are fitting differently, I have more energy, and there’s just an overall change I see when looking in the mirror. But the downside to this is the weight is not really matching up with the changes. This morning I weighed in at 166 pounds (down from 175 pounds, -9 pounds, in four weeks); so the weight is going, but I figured the weight would catch up with the reflection I am seeing in the mirror. I am just so excited about this program! It is really giving me the jump-start on reaching my goal in a healthy and great tasting meal plan.

Speaking of great tasting… I have now been on the Nutrisystem meal plan for four weeks and would like to review the best and worst meals. My favorite meals so far have been the lunch items: (more…)

Nutrisystem Week 3

Hi everyone…  Hope your week has been a good one. I am still trying all the different choices that Nutrisystem has provided for me, and still I am able to say that most of the meals have been very good. There are a couple that I could not eat, but it is a very good percentage of meals that taste great. The crispy rice cereal was very pasty tasting, and I am not a big Chinese food eater, but decided to try the orange chicken with rice and veggies… I just could not do it.  I am sure that someone that likes orange chicken would have loved it.  It looked really good, but didn’t suit me.

An Honest Look at the Nutrisystem Meal Plan

Hi everyone…  Everything is going well with my Nutrisystem meal plan. I am going to go over a couple of the dinners and the snacks this week.

The Italian meals… pizza, lasagna and rotini with meatballs… were all really good. I had the chicken with Alfredo sauce last night and that was really tasty. The meals are not very big like the breakfast and lunch items, but eaten with the salad and fresh veggies that are recommended your meal is very satisfying.

I have had a couple problems with the flavor of a few things. The hamburger was not very appetizing and really the meatloaf was about the same. The hamburger comes very dehydrated and to cook it you add hot water. But every time you touch the burger (even getting it out of the package) it just crumbled into a quite a few pieces. It was really difficult to eat. The meatloaf was kinda hard and didn’t really have much flavor. But the potatoes that came with it were really good. (more…)

Nutrisystem’s Hot Dog in a Box Not as Bad as it Sounds

Hi everyone! My name is Lori Jackson and I am super excited to share my experiences with you about the Nutrisystem meal plan. I don’t want to call it a diet, I have always hated that word, as most of us have. This is the springboard for a healthier lifestyle for me. I will be sharing my experience with Nutrisystem for the next 16 weeks, right here at DietsInReview.com.

Watch now as I introduce myself and talk a bit about what my first week on Nutrisystem was like. Then, keep reading to learn more, and hear about the hot dog in a box!

Carnie Wilson Partners with The Fresh Diet and Dr. Oz

UPDATE 12/02/10: Carnie Wilson was fired as spokesperson for The Fresh Diet due to weight gain and promoting her own cheesecake business.

Carnie Wilson, daughter of beloved Beach Boys singer Brian Wilson, is a mom of two daughters. In the spotlight from a young age, her weight has been a much commented upon subject. The star of the GSN show Carnie Wilson: Unstapled, Wilson had gastric bypass in the 1990s when she was over 300 pounds. Her weight fluctuated since, hindered by a 70-pound weight gain in her first pregnancy and 60 pounds in her second. Describing herself as a life-long sugar addict, she says that she never learned to eat correctly and used her pregnancies as a convenient excuse to eat the foods she wanted.

Now she’s partnering with Dr. Oz and Fresh Diet, a food delivery company, to lose the extra weight in a healthy manner. Wilson says that she’s struggled her entire life with good diet choices. (more…)

Fresh Diet Takes Up Michelle Obama’s Childhood Obesity Cause

Call it brilliant marketing and timing, but the makers of The Fresh Diet are bringing their delivery services to the nation’s capital at a time when Michelle Obama is taking a high-profile stance against childhood obesity, thanks to her new organization Let’s Move.

The marketing brilliance not only comes with how the company has timed the move to expand their services to Washington, D.C. as a way to hop on board with first lady Michelle Obama’s initiative, but the press release announcing the move cleverly states that the gourmet delivery service “unites” with the First Lady’s battle against obesity. No, they aren’t tied to Mrs. Obama’s efforts in any formal way, but both parties share a common and noble goal.

“It seemed like the perfect time to do this, particularly as the First Lady has made obesity – especially among our children, a key issue during her tenure in the White House,” says Zalmi Duchman, CEO of The Fresh Diet. (more…)
