Great share too — appreciate your input and feedback. Its meals are heart-healthy, they have limited sodium content, they are low in added sugars, and they are free from artificial colors and flavors. But for me, cucumbers, tomatoes, etc. I started the program today, January 1st. This means, I only needed to use Nutrisystem for 1 month, and then switched to their Turbo Shakes for my second month, along with a healthy diet and exercise plan.
How Diet-to-Go Works
South Beach Diet is not developed just to help you shed pounds. The program focuses on lean protein, nutritious veggies, and healthy fat.
It is less restrictive than the Atkins diet and allows you to enjoy some of the good, unrefined carbs. During the first 2 weeks, most dieters lose around 7 pounds on average. With the South Beach Diet meal delivery service, you have all your meals prepared by professional chefs.
You get to enjoy healthy breakfasts, lunches, and dinners, as well as guilt-free snacks. You can opt for one of the 3 meal plans — Silver, Gold, and Platinum — depending on how much money you want to spend, how much you value menu variety, and whether you want to receive snacks and protein shakes in your deliveries. Keep reading this South Beach Diet review to find out more about the program and available meal plans.
First of all, unlike most weight loss solutions, South Beach Diet does not make you feel hungry and irritable all the time. It allows you to eat delicious food 6 times a day, so you can have a meal or a snack every hours. Second, it does not just help you get fit but also helps you stay fit.
It does not merely provide meals and snacks you should eat while on the program but also offers expert guidance and handy tools, trackers, guides, and other useful resources.
It does not simply eliminate everything you love from your diet but differentiates between good and bad carbs and good and bad fats. Furthermore, it makes sure that all of its meals and snacks are genuinely good for you. Its meals are heart-healthy, they have limited sodium content, they are low in added sugars, and they are free from artificial colors and flavors. They are made of wholesome food that has great health benefits.
Finally, if you are familiar with the original South Beach Diet, there are a couple of facts you need to know about this version of the diet. Namely, all the basic principles are the same, with two minor alterations made in accordance with recent medical findings. I did feel healthier at which I managed to maintain for 20 something years. In 3 years I graduated a size I weighed when I graduated. I still weigh 10 years later and feel awful.
I too started to eat out and drink wine. I only hope I have the will power to succeed this time. I feel I have to become a hermit and say no to going out with my friends, neighbors and family. But now I am older and I dread the fact it may take me years to lose all this fat. But I have only myself to blame. Reading your story has given me some inspiration. I am going to make 10 weight loss increments only as to not get discouraged.
Thank you for sharing your story. Hi Cheryl- Thanks for reading, and sharing…What an inspiring story! I still have a drink occasionally, but try to keep it limited to social gatherings and not an everyday thing. In any case, best of luck with your weight loss journey! Norman, you seem to know the NS diet very well. I have been on this diet around 7 years ago and I see a few new changes this time. My order has arrived and I unpacked my Turbo Box yet did not keep that food separate, and now i am really unsure of what was in it for my first week….
Best of luck with the program. Hope that helps -NS. You want to be at your goal weight then, not wishing you did something about it yrs ago. No, you cannot pound them back, but I am not sure why you would want to anyway. Co-workers always ask me to go out for a drink and they order whatever and I order a diet coke.
You could blame it on medication if you want. When I go out to eat or go to cookouts, etc. I order a meat and a vegetable with a diet soda. No potato or anything.
At a cookout it would be a burger or chicken with no bread, and a tossed salad or veggie. You CAN do it. You just have to order carefully. I wish you luck. You can do, I know you can.
It is so nice to read a positive article about Nutrisystem. You are so right about your body becoming used to the smaller portions. Like anything, your body goes through an adjustment period, but after a few days, it is quite easy. With frequent snacks between meals, as well as plenty of fluids, you are eating pretty much whenever you feel hungry.
Hi, thanks for the great review! Thanks for the nice comment: Excited to hear how Nutrisystem goes for you — let us know!
Hi Ellen — You definitely need to talk with your doctor before trying Nutrisystem or any weight loss plan with your health issues, but they do offer a plan for people with diabetes. I would recommend checking out their site to learn more about the different plans they offer. They also offer snacks and shakes as options over the course of the day, so that helps with the extra cravings too. Hope that helps, and best of luck with your weight loss journey! Someone in my Myspace group shared this website with us so I came to give it a look.
Exceptional blog and brilliant design and style. Thanks for the kind words and for visiting the site — let me know your Twitter handle so I can return the favor!
Those first 2 weeks i dropped 13 lbs, but that third week i lost maybe 1 lb. I was only eating the provided meals the first two weeks usually around only calories per day obviously that was unhealthy, so i added in a few snacks to put me right around calories per day. But unfortunately that has resulted in minimal weight loss. Did you have plateaus like this? And how did you over come these stalls? I did just purchase an elliptical and also a stationary bike, but only on day 2 with those.
Your review was wonderful and very well written, so thank you! Hi Julie- Thank you so much for sharing your story, and way to go for making it through your first month! I think the calorie restriction is the hardest part about Nutrisystem, and why now I typically only do the diet for a month or two and then really focus on just eating right and getting enough exercise after that.
For me, the approach after Nutrisystem has been intermittent fasting IF. That said, I have had a lot of success with it, and find that I can maintain a healthy weight for long stretches of time when using it.
I started with the turbo charge and continued now for almost 3 weeks. I have only lost 3 lbs. When I emailed a counselor they said that was normal and I was doing well. Big hope very disappointed.
In any case, hope the rest of your month goes well, and best of luck moving forward. I just started Nutrisystem. I always lost weight on the low carb diet when I was younger. But the fat intake was not good.
Just to avoid all the carbs… Did you or anyone else have a issue with how many carbs are in each meal? Is this ok lol… Please someone assure me all the carbs are ok! Thanks for visting, and best of luck with your first month! Thanks for the excellent review and videos. Excited to see what kind of progress I can make. Hi Krystal — thanks for visiting the site, and taking the time to read my review and watch the videos.
Always happy to hear that it helped! Thanks for the great info and for sharing your story! Thanks for the kind words, June! Congrats on taking the first step and best of luck with Nutrisystem — hope it goes well! I mastered more new things on this fat reduction issue. An enormous reduction in junk food, sugary foods, fried foods, sugary foods, beef, and white flour products may perhaps be necessary.
Holding wastes unwanted organisms, and wastes may prevent ambitions for fat-loss. While specific drugs for the short term solve the situation, the unpleasant side effects are certainly not worth it, plus they never present more than a short-term solution. Many thanks sharing your thinking on this weblog. Thanks for the input Saul. Have you ever considered creating an ebook or guest authoring about Nutrisystem on other sites? I know my readers would appreciate your work.
If you are even remotely interested, feel free to send me an email. Hi Lance — I actually do have an eBook in the works, so stay tuned for that! I just wanted to say that this post is awesome, well written and lots of useful Nutrisystem info.
Looking forward to my first shipment. Hi Corburt — Thanks for the kind words, and best of luck with your first month — hope it goes well! I just wanted to offer you a huge thumbs up for the great information you have right here on this post. I will be returning to your site for more soon! This blog looks exactly like my old one! Great choice of colors! Really inspired by your story — thanks for sharing!
I am planning to start Nutrisystem after the New Year. Hi Erin — Thanks so much for the positive feedback. The first time I ever used Nutrisytem, which was many years ago at this point, I think I was one it for 4 months. I had a lot more weight to lose then; now when I sign up, I usually use it for a month, maybe two at the most. To lock in the auto delivery deal, you have to commit to two months, so if you hit your weight loss goals after month 1, I recommend switching your order to just the Turbo Shakes — that will ensure you lock in the most savings, and also helps to keep you on track once you start transitioning off the program.
As I have said before, you have to be committed to the program to get results, but as long as you follow their plan you will lose weight! Anyways, best of luck and please let us know how it goes: Thanks for sharing your story.
Drinking over ounces and eating tons of leafy greens. I did NS about 4 years ago lost almost This past July was told my chloerstral and blood pressure was too high for 28 year old. So black Friday I ordered when prices decreased. Hi Amanda — Thanks for visiting and reading my story. Hope it goes as well this time around. Thanks for sharing your superb review. You have a lot of good info here. I am looking for a diet to try just after the new year, and this might be the one.
Either way, appreciate all of the details you shared. Thanks, just what I was looking for. I have about 20 pounds to lose — is this doable in a month or two? Hi Sam — Thanks for the positive feedback. Losing 20 pounds is definitely doable with Nutrisystem, but I would budget at least two months. With Nutrisystem, they get rid of any of the guesswork that comes with dieting by giving you perfectly portion-controlled breakfasts, lunches, dinners, and snacks to eat.
Nutrisystem has designed a program, that is both safe and effective at helping you lose weight. With the Nutrisystem plan, you will eat every 2 to 3 hours, for six meals or snacks per day. You do eat some carbs on Nutrisystem, which would be the difference between it and Keto. As of today, Nutrisystem is offering some pretty amazing discounts for TheDietDynamo. I have been following the keto diet for the last several months, and the weight definitely falls off if you stick with the program.
Keto is much different from Nutrisystem, mostly from the carbohydrate and sugar standpoint. On top of that, you also limit your carbs to grams per day — I have seen different numbers thrown out there for how many carbs you need to hit ketosis, but the most common number I see is about 20 grams.
The idea with keto is that once you limit your carbs to about 20 grams per day, eliminate sugar, and follow a higher fat diet, you should enter a state known as ketosis.
