Nutrisystem Men's Silver Plan Reviews


Good Nutrition For Older People

(4 out of 5 stars)

I am an older gentleman, but I do like to keep myself fit. I am active; I walk everyday and enjoy playing with my grandchildren. When I noticed that I was putting on a little weight recently, the first thing I did was purchase a Nutrisystem Silver Plan after I saw a commercial for it on TV.


The cost was decent, considering all of the food that I was getting. I was able to choose which foods I wanted that fit into the plan. Needless to say, I was not disappointed. Nutrisystem offers quality food at a decent price, and I lost the weight very quickly. The food was delicious, especially the Double Chocolate Muffin. I ate that and a banana for breakfast with black coffee.


The food arrived quickly in small packages that were easy to store in the cupboard and the freezer. The only thing I would like is if the Silver plan came with more fruit options, but I understand that most of the fruit has to be dried in order to transport it. I have recommend this diet to my friends and encourage them to eat that delicious Double Chocolate Muffin.


New Year is Time for a Healthy Diet

(3 out of 5 stars)

My New Year’s resolution was to get in shape. I have tried many diets, but they just don’t fill me up. I like to eat hearty foods, so I wanted something filling that was still healthy. My friend recommended that I try Nutrisystem. The plan that fit me the best was the Silver plan but I talked to my doctor first. We looked over the meal plan and the foods. He gave me the go ahead right away, saying that he thought the meal plan would work very well for me. Once I ordered the food, it was shipped very quickly. Being a single man, the individual packages were easy to make since I don’t do a lot of cooking.


Most of the food was good, some was just okay. I liked the dinners. They were filling and tasted good. I do not eat pork, and there were a lot of other options to choose from that didn’t include pork products. My favorite dinner item was the Buffalo Chicken Wrap. It wasn’t too spicy but had a good kick to it. Some of the snacks were dry except for the ones with chocolate coating.



Give me More!

(5 out of 5 stars)

I tried the Nutrisystem Silver plan for men of a certain age after my wife started her Nutrisystem plan in February. She lost over thirty pounds in a few months. She looked great, and I couldn’t believe how much younger that lost weight made her look! So, not wanting to be outdone, I signed up on the website for my own plan. It arrived in small packages just like my wife’s.


Prior to signing up for the diet, I had sampled a few of the menu items from my wife’s meal plan. I found the food to be very delicious. Some of the menu items in my plan were similar or exactly the same as the ones in her diet. The differences in our meal plans were portion sizes, amount of meals we could eat, and some of the food choices. I could eat Nutrisystem foods and snacks everyday for the rest of my life and never tire of them. I really love all of the meaty dishes, such as the Sloppy Joe sandwich. While the portion sizes were bigger than my wife’s, I still found myself hungry sometimes. So, I started drinking more water, and that filled me right up. Good way to hydrate myself and feel full while still losing weight.



Needs More Vegetarian Choices

(3.5 out of 5 stars)

I’ve been on the Nutrisystem Silver plan diet for over three months now. I wish I could say that I loved it, but sadly I'm not as ecstatic about it as some people are. My doctor recommended this diet when I told him that I wanted to eat healthier by becoming a vegetarian. He said that most people who plan their own vegetarian diets usually miss a few key vitamins and minerals, and may even get sick because of this. With the Nutrisystem Silver diet, all of the key nutrients are represented while still maintaining a vegetarian friendly menu.


I signed up and received the food promptly. While there are sadly no fresh fruits or vegetables in the actual meal plan, the diet does allow the addition of these items to any meal. The vegetarian options are definitely tasty, but there simply aren’t enough of them to satisfy me. I found myself eating the same, admittedly good, food over and over, which got rather boring. I am aware that there is also a vegetarian plan, so I will speak to my doctor and ask whether switching would be the right option for me.



Made me Love Breakfast

(4 out of 5 stars)

After putting on some weight over the past couple of years, I was up for a promotion and wanted to look my best. I began exercising more, but that was not really taking the weight off. In order to shed pounds faster and more effectively, I signed up with the Silver diet plan for men on Nutrisystem’s website.


As soon as I began the program, the weight came off. One thing I hadn’t been doing before starting the diet plan was eating breakfast. With all of the delicious options and the diet guide explaining the importance of breakfast, I began to eat three meals a day with snacks. I found myself eating less naturally, and not experiencing hunger at all throughout the day. Did I mention that the breakfast choices are delicious? There are strudels and muffins and scones of many flavors and varieties to satisfy even a picky palette.


The only reason I didn’t give this review a five star rating is because I couldn’t get through on the phone to order my Nutrisystem plan. I don’t know if they were busy filling New Year’s orders or what, so I just ordered online.



Women Aren’t the Only Ones Getting Ready for Swimsuits

(4.5 out of 5 stars)

I’ve never been a fan of diets, and especially not diet foods. I don’t cook much, but my wife makes some really good food that has unfortunately put some extra pounds on me since we have been married. Since we have been married over thirty years, you can imagine just how much weight I have put on over the years. She hasn’t gained a pound and looks just as good now as she ever has. Go figure.


We decided to book a vacation over the summer to a tropical paradise. There was just one problem. None of my swimming trunks fit anymore. It had been a while since I had used them, but I couldn’t even get them up. So, I tried the Nutrisystem diet for older men, the Silver plan. I was surprised by how good the food tasted. It was easy to prepare. My wife continued to eat the same food we have eaten for years, but I wasn’t jealous. I was too busy enjoying my pre-packaged portions of Tender Beef with Vegetables, or Chicken Fettuccini Alfredo. The only downside was slow shipping, but that could be because we live out in the middle of nowhere.



I lost weight!

(5 out of 5 stars)

There’s nothing I can really say about the Nutrisystem plan apart from the fact that it worked for me. I lost twenty pounds in two months! Combined with drinking plenty of water, green tea and exercise, I really feel that anyone can lose the weight. I used to sit around all day at my job, so I would snack all day on things that weren’t so good for me. Replacing those unhealthy snacks with the approved Nutrisystem snacks helped curb my cravings throughout the day.


I am a fifty-five year old man, so I signed up for the Silver plan, which has a lot of great foods to choose from. I was a particular fan of the BBQ Pork Wrap and the Chicken Pasta Parmesan. Those two dinners I could eat everyday, and they were really easy to make. My wife even snuck bites of my meals when she thought I wasn’t looking!


I wish the plan didn’t cost as much, but I understand that I’m buying food for months at a time. My cupboards were full, so that was a really good thing to see. My stomach was also full. I always had enough to eat and never felt hungry.



Desk Job Foods, Not Much Else

(3 out of 5 stars)

I am a construction worker. I wanted to slim down, even though I get regular exercise. I’ve always eaten bad foods such as huge sub sandwiches and fast food. Lately, my metabolism has slowed down significantly, and I’ve been putting on weight around my midsection. I cal it my pony keg. My co-worker suggested I sign up with the Silver plan on Nutrisystem. He thought I might be able to lose weight and not feel hungry all the time.


Well, I did lose weight, but I was also kind of hungry most days. I think this is because I didn’t really like the snacks they provided. They were kind of dry and chewy. The lunch and dinners were really good though. I wish I could have gotten more of them, but I doubt I would have lost weight if I ate those all day.


My friend told me that I could have eaten fresh fruits and vegetables in place of the snacks that were provided, but I don’t care for vegetables much. Overall, I would continue this diet if I liked the snacks better. I really enjoy the meals so I don’t regret signing up.



I wasn’t hungry, not for one day!

(4 out of 5 stars)

I love the Nutrisystem diet, and I’m not ashamed to say it. Their food is delicious, and I would eat it as often as possible. I work in an office, and I used to find myself snacking on chips and Snicker bars. The snacks that Nutrisystem Silver provides, such as the Cheese Puffs, and the Honey Mustard Pretzel Sticks, made me feel like I was indulging, not like I was on a diet. My co-workers would come up to my desk and ask for a few bites it was so good.


The meals were good, too. I love cooking, so I was able to make some really great meals by adding fresh fruits and vegetables. I would make the main dish, like the Homestyle Beef and Mashed Potatoes, and also add blanched asparagus or snap peas, and make a side salad with light dressing.


Since starting the diet, I have lost quite a bit of weight, and have felt more confident to start dating again. My new girlfriend loves coming over so I can cook for her, but I never feel tempted to eat her food, only my Nutrisystem meals that I have doctored up a bit.



Okay Food. Nothing Special, But I Lost Weight.

(3.5 out of 5 stars)

The Nutrisystem Silver plan is good for someone who can’t cook. I read some reviews before I purchased the plan because I actually enjoy cooking, so I wasn’t sure that I would like the food. I used to make very fattening food, so I knew cooking myself had to stop if I wanted to lose weight.


The meals arrived in little containers that were easy to store. Whenever I was really hungry, I would fill up my water bottle, grab one of the Chocolate Bar snacks or a piece of fruit, and go for a walk. I admit that I lost a lot of weight this way, but I can’t say that I stuck to the meal plans that much. I ate the meals and the snacks, but I also wanted fresh produce.


I liked some of the meals, but I usually cooked them with lots of vegetables and had a glass of wine with dinner. All in all, I will be continuing the Nutrisystem Silver plan because I like the convenience and I am still allowed to cook in addition to the packaged meals. The snacks are excellent and portable, which is great for exercising on the go.



Love the Food, Great Customer Service

(5 out of 5 stars)

After the first few weeks of being on the Nutrisystem Silver diet plan, I really started to notice the weight coming off. My day was planned out perfectly using the online diet planner. I could get up in the morning, go for my morning jog, come back and have black coffee and a breakfast bar or the Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal, pack my lunch for work plus a snack and an apple, come home from work and do twenty minutes of yoga, and then do whatever family things needed to be done. My wife was kind enough to make the family meal while I made my own dinners. After dinner, I could have chocolate for dessert! I rarely felt hungry.


My kids are in high school, and they love that I am getting healthier and in shape. My wife has been getting up in the mornings and going for jogs with me. With our busy lifestyle, it has been nice to be able to find time to spend with her, and still be able to do something good for my body.



Loved the Food, Good Customer Service Experience

(4.5 out of 5 stars)

I put on lots of weight over the winter as I don’t get to go out and do the outdoors stuff that I usually like to do. So, I sign up during the winter to keep the weight off, and then go back to my normal diet during the summer. However, this year, I decided to stay on the Nutrisystem plan all year because I was starting to miss the food!


There was only one problem I had, and that was on a three month order. I only received one box when I should have received two. I don’t think that was the fault of Nutrisystem, so I called them. They were very helpful and though they were unable to locate the second box, they did replace my order for free. They even threw in a few free meals since I was such a loyal customer! I am really glad that I signed up for this plan.



Review of the Food: That’s What People Care About!

(5 out of 5 stars)

The customer service and everything were great, but here is a review of my favorite foods in the Nutrisystem Silver plan. That’s what people really want to read, right? The breakfast foods that I loved were the Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal, the Cinnamon Bun Bar, and the Peanut Butter Granola Bar. As you can tell, I really like cinnamon, but there were also some really great fruity flavored options.


Lunches were great, too. I liked the Buffalo Chicken Wrap, the Black Bean Tortilla Soup, and the Sausage Red Beans and Rice. They were all light, but yet didn’t leave me feeling hungry. Plus, I could eat snack bars throughout the day so that I didn’t eat too much.


Dinner was my favorite meal of the day. I was able to eat lots of hearty foods and add my favorite cooked vegetables according to my plan. My favorite food was the Lasagna and the Meatloaf. I loved the meaty textures and the tastes. Don’t even get me started on the desserts! They were really good too, and I couldn’t even begin to list all the ones I liked.



Great Program for Older Men
(4 out of 5 stars)

I just started the Nutrisystem Silver plan about a week ago and I’m finding it very easy to follow. I’m kind of a picky eater, but the food was actually really good. It was fast to make, perfectly portioned, and very tasty. I never felt hungry and the food was easy to make.

I like that it’s not necessary to spend time making my food or counting calories. I also love the literature and online tools available to help me track my calories, and keep my exercise routine in place. The cost for food comes to about ten dollars a day for three meals plus snacks that keep me full all day. So the cost is no problem. I used to spend much more every day for food.

I used to be a cookie addict. I’d eat half a package at a time! Now, I can have a chocolate chip cookie and a glass of milk before bed and I’m done. I don’t even need to eat more than one. My family is very proud of me for keeping my cookie cravings in check.



Helped Get Me Back on Track
(4 out of 5 stars)

I have been on diets before, especially in my forties. I have tried almost every diet out there, including those gritty shakes that taste awful and don’t fill you up. Now that I’m in my sixties, I need real food that’s easy to make and fits my lifestyle.

What I like about the Nurtrisystem Silver meal plan is that I don’t have to spare taste and food in favor of losing weight. Now I can eat real food that is easy to make and tastes really good. I also like the online meal planner and calorie counter. They’re very convenient to use.

I’ve lost over thirty pounds since I began the diet. My pants from my forties fit great, and my wife is really impressed with how well I’m doing. She has been exercizing too so we can prepare for our retirement to Florida in the summer. I think we will both be bathing suit ready by spring. I can’t wait to go golfing or sit by the pool with my beautiful wife.



I Wish I could Use the Website!

(3.5 out of 5 stars)

For some reason I can’t seem to use the website. It might be my computer, but I can’t get into my meal planner. That would be helpful so I can see what my daily calorie intake is. The customer service has tried to help, but they say it’s something to do with my computer.


Thank goodness I have automatic refills on my Nutrisystem food, or I would be out of luck. The food is so good, I don’t think I could go more than two days without my fix! My favorites are definitely the dinners. They fill me up and I don’t want to do any more snacking until I go to bed. I used to sit up and watch late night talk shows and just eat. Now I have my dinner, dessert, and I’m set for the night!


The only food I don’t like is the Meatloaf. Then again, I never liked meatloaf. So I can’t be too objective about it.



Not Enough Food, I loved it too Much!

(4 out of 5 stars)

I really, really enjoyed the three months of my Nutrisystem Silver plan. I used the plan to get me down to my goal weight, and have since gone back to cooking my own meals. This time, however, I have started keeping track of calories and eating healthy foods.


The Nutrisystem diet helped me be aware of what I was putting into my body. I knew I had been eating too much food before. Now, I have trained my stomach to feel fuller on smaller portions. By eating light meals and healthy snacks all day long, I find my energy is high and I am able to get through the workday and still find time to exercise in the evenings.


If I had used this diet when I was younger, I probably would have been able to play with my kids and not get so tired. Now they are grown with kids of their own, so it is definitely nice to be able to spend time with my grandchildren and not feel tired out by the time they go home.



Most Energy I Have Had since I was Twenty!

(5 out of 5 stars)

Four months ago I started a Nutrisystem diet plan for older men. I used to feel sleepy most days. I am retired, but liked to volunteer at the local hospital. I had been asking for shorter and shorter shifts because I found myself nodding off during the day.


Since starting Nutrisystem Silver, I am feeling more energy than I have had since I was in my twenties. I get up in the morning with vigor, volunteer for four or five-hour shifts at the hospital, find time to do my afternoon walk, and still have energy in the evening. I don’t think I have felt this good in so many years. I may even start dating again.


The food is excellent and easy to prepare. My wife passed away two years ago, so I sincerely miss her as well as her home cooking. But the Nutrisystem food is good. The lunches and dinners are filling and tasty, just like she used to make. I can eat my meals at home and snack at the hospital. Even my grandkids sneak a chocolate or two. They are so good, and always put a smile on my grandkids’ faces, which puts a smile on my face too.



I’m Still Hungry

(4 out of 5 stars)

I’m a big guy. At 60, I weighed over 300 pounds. My doctor was seriously concerned about my health. I had bad knees, hips, and a back that hurt every day. He suggested I go on a diet immediately or risk developing Type 2 diabetes, heart disease, or a number of other complications.


Within a week I had signed up for Nutrisystem. The next week, I received my food, in addition to the two free weeks that they gave me for signing up. I opened the box, excited for the new diet, only to find small packages of food waiting for me. I was a bit disappointed by the size of the food.


However, my disappointed was lessened when I discovered that the food actually wasn’t bad. My favorite was definitely the chocolate desserts. They did not taste waxy like other diet chocolates.


The first few weeks were a bit difficult for me as I was used to eating VERY BIG meals. I had to train myself and my body to not be hungry throughout the day, and that was tough. I used to not eat breakfast, have fast food for lunch, and a whole pizza for dinner. Now I am able to eat small meals and lots of snacks every day.


Sometimes I want a big slice of pizza, though, so I still have a long way to go.



I Recommend this to All of my Employees

(5 out of 5 stars)

I own my own small business and have several overweight people on my staff. I pay for their health insurance out of my own pocket, so, in order to encourage my employees to be healthier, I started the Nutrisystem challenge. I joined them in the Nutrisystem diet that fit them (mine was the Silver plan), and gave them three months to lose some weight. If it didn’t work for them or they simply didn’t like it, they could end it. However, if they lasted three months and lost weight, I would give them a bonus. The trick was that I had to be on the plan and lose the weight too.


We all encouraged each other and ended up losing a total of 240 pounds altogether in three months! I am really proud of my employees, and our health providers have given us all the go ahead to continue to lose the weight if we want to stay on the plan.


I personally love the food. It’s nice to be able to walk into the office and see my employees munching on healthy Nutrisystem foods instead of junk food or fast food.
