Wondering about the Nutrisystem diet?

Nutrisystem is one of the most well-known weight loss plans on the market right now. It gets a lot of press probably due to the many commercials and infomercials.

Is it the right fit for your lifestyle? Here's a few thing to know about the Nutrisystem diet before you try it.

First of all, Nutrisystem has been around for over 35 years and was one of the first weight loss programs to move primarily to the internet, offering online and phone counselling instead of group visits at a traditional brick-and-mortar weight loss center.

This allowed people to lose weight in the privacy of their own homes, which many people prefer because it also saves them the embarassment of a weekly weigh-in.

How it works:

Nutrisystem is a diet meal delivery service that sends their meals directly to your home. You get breakfast, lunch and dinner every day plus a snack. You can also add your own fruit and vegetables if you want.

There are over 170 meals on their menu to choose from and you can even customize your menu, by selecting the meals you prefer from their list of options. You can also just choose to order their Favorites menu and they'll put the most popular meals in for you.

You order a months worth of food at one time. Meals come with preparation instructions. Most of them can be ready in 5 - 10 minutes, which makes this diet very convenient - since there's no waiting or long preparation times for your meals.

The meals emphasize low-glycemic foods ("good carbs"). These foods help keep your blood sugar stable and avoid insulin spikes (which can make you hungry). Plus because of the fibre in the meals, you also feel fuller for longer - so you don't get hungry as fast.

The Meals:

The meals aren't as 'gourmet' as other diet meal delivery services. However you do get a lot of variety to choose from.

Plus there is an emphasis on comfort foods with this diet, from chocolate chip cookies to cinnamon buns to sloppy joes to lasagna.

Nutrisystem also has special diet meal plans suitable for vegetarians and type 2 diabetics.

The Cost:

In general, the Nutrisystem diet costs around $11 -$13 a day. You can save money by choosing to have the food auto-shipped to you every month.

Nutrisystem is actually much more affordable than most other diet delivery plans that run about $20-$25 a day. It's also less than what most people spend on food each day. So you can actually save money while slimming down.


If searching for an easy way to lose weight that includes both your food and support, you may want to consider Nutrisystem. has worked for thousands of people - including several famous stars.

Plus you can choose your own menu and you also get online support including weight loss coaching. All this for around $11 a day which is much more affordable than many other diet delivery services.
