Take Shape for Life, or Optavia as it is now known, helps you realize a Lifelong Transformation with an approach that is different from other weight loss programs. However, I was completely wrong, the Nutrisystem food is delicious. With Nutrisystem the food portions are designed to be just right so a person gets the nutrition he needs and still loses weight. Send me a message if you are interested in this program. The kit consists of a specially designed daily tracker.

Costco doesn't sell Nutrisystem products. This is the cheapest way to buy Nutrisystem. You pick the plan that fits your lifestyle and you place your order. You will receive your food in business days. The food, which will arrive in styrofoam boxes, will last for four weeks.
That's 28 breakfasts, 28 lunches, 28 dinners, and 28 snacks. If you are on the Dinners my Way plan you won't receive dinners. Cederquist who has over 20 years of clinical experience in weight management. Meals are chef-prepared fresh with no preservatives, MSG or aspartame. The diet itself focuses on portion control with an emphasis on lean protein and complex carbohydrate.
You can also choose how many days you want your meals — all 7 days or 5 days in case you want to take weekends off. One of only about doctors nationwide to have achieved board certification in bariatrics—the specialty of medical weight management. Over different menu items to choose from. I purchased 4 of these. After two weeks I am down 8. The food is actually tasty and seemingly nutritious. Most everything if not everything is high in fiber, protein, and healthy fats.
If you can stick to the program, you can lose weight. Large variety of products--you're sure to find numerous things that you'll actually enjoy eating. I did not gain weight while on the system, and was probably eating pretty healthily most of the time. Eating too many snacks will make you gassy, but that's probably not the program's fault, as you're not supposed to overindulge.
The food is actually too delicious, as I was finding myself eating snack after delicious snack. Unfortunately, this does not help you lose weight. Although the snacks don't get boring quickly, the lunches and dinners do get old after a while. I, personally, have a ton of lunches and dinners left over, but most of the snacks are long gone. The absolute biggest con, however, and the reason I'm writing a negative review, has nothing to do with the actual food. It's the cancellation process. Once you sign up for their monthly subscription, there's no way to cancel online--you are forced to call them.
Calling them means you have to wait on the phone for at least 10 minutes to speak to an agent, who will then try their best to talk you out of cancelling their program.
They will only allow you to delay your order for up to 60 days online, and not stop it all together. This is an otherwise great program that works for some people, but I do not like the shady business practices they employ, and it did not work for me. I'm very impressed by this system. I was as skeptical as a person could possibly be having avoided these "preserved" diets for at least seven years for fear that the ingestion of artificial foods would be ultimately unhealthy. I have carefully studied the labels and I still can't figure out how the formulation so successfully incorporates protein and fiber at ideal rates to curb hunger, but it's truly amazing.
And somehow there aren't preservatives, so that's incredible too. It might be some kind of magic--I'm still not sure. I thought I would be outright starving based on the portion sizes, but I found myself less hungry than I have been I years despite tripling my exercise routine.
I lost one pound per day, and my BMI was already in healthy range so I didn't expect this rate of ketogenesis at all. I'm surprised, impressed and optimistic. Most of the foods are delicious, and it's nice to feel like a human again and eat a blessed cookie once in a while with 8g of protein, how do they do it! Also, the convenience of throwing these things into my purse or travel bag or car truly cannot be beat.
Very well done, Nutrisystem! This diet is great and not. You could seriously make your own low calorie food that would taste better. However, if you struggle with starting a diet or struggle with coming up with low calorie meals this is very helpful. I like the food in this box better than the home style box. The breakfasts, snacks, and lunches i like enough. I do not like the dinners in these boxes. I bought this box just to make things easy for me because I struggle with dieting and my friend lost a lot of weight on this diet.
I lost on this and it made it easier for me to stick to a low calorie diet on my own after a week on this. I would recommend this if you struggle with dieting and especially if you struggle with getting started or if you need to just drop a few pounds in a week. For the life of me I can't understand Marie Osmond living on that stuff for 6 months. I couldn't live on it for 1 week. I know why you lose 7 pounds in 2 weeks, you'd rather starve yourself than have the Nutrisystem food.
Lots of sodium also and since I am on a salt restricted program, they were not good for me. Maybe it just takes a stronger willed woman than I? Lost 10 pounds in the 5 days.
