The Nutrisystem Diet Program

The NutriSystem diet program is an online weight loss system where dieters consume prepared, pre-packaged meals that are ordered online and delivered to your doorstep. The NutriSystem diet program offers seven diet options which include programs for non vegetarian and vegetarian men and women, senior men and women and diabetics. You can order your packaged meals from a menu consisting of more than 120 meal options.

A 5 week supply of the NutriSystem diet program food will cost you somewhere around $300 to $350, where you pay for 4 weeks worth of food and get a week’s supply free. Apart from 5 pre-packaged meals every day, the NutriSystem diet program provides you with a daily meal planner, exercise DVDs, online and phone weight loss counseling and online support. A 12-week, "Mindset Makeover" behavioral guide, which is aimed at making dieters switch to a permanently healthy lifestyle, is also included.

How Does The NutriSystem Diet Program Work

The NutriSystem weight loss program is based on a diet that comprises 3 meals and 2 snacks with a total calorific count of 1200 for women and 1500 for men. The total calorie intake comes from a combination of 55% carbohydrates, 25% protein and 20% fats. The pre-planned, cooked, portioned meals are made out of healthy or low glycemic index carbs, which reduce food cravings and provide sufficient energy.

The diet aims to lower a user’s body weight by providing limited calories in the form of low glycemic index, low fat, lean protein and fiber rich cooked meals. When combined with suggested exercises, users of the NutriSystem weight loss program lose 30% more weight than people using other weight loss methods in the same time.

The major benefit that the NutriSystem diet program comes with is that dieters do not have to worry at all about meal planning, cooking, portion sizes or buying food. Weight loss is more or less ensured with the NutriSystem diet program because lower calorie intake naturally leads to fat burning. With dieters getting to eat turkey, beef stroganoff with noodles, tuna casseroles and other tasty preparations, and with ready cooked food being delivered at the doorstep, the inclination to go off the diet is very little.

The main disadvantage of the NutriSystem diet program is that while the program may make you lose weight while you are on it, you may find yourself at a loss at how to maintain healthy eating habits and lifestyle once you go off the weight loss plan. It is common for NutriSystem diet program followers to get back into unhealthy eating habits and gain weight the moment they get off the plan.  Another disadvantage is that small portion sizes with low calorific counts may make many users crave more food throughout the day. Costing more than $300 per month, the plan may also seem costly to some.


The NutriSystem diet program is good as a short term weight loss solution and is perfect for people who either want to lose suddenly put on weight fast and for those who do not have the time or the motivation to shop for and prepare healthy meals. The NutriSystem diet program can also prove to be a useful aid for self motivated dieters who follow and implement the lifestyle changes recommended by the program in order to lead healthy, obesity free lives.
