Nutrisystem Women's Basic Plan Reviews

I love the program, but I’m still struggling with willpower

(4.5 out of 5 stars)

After my sister lost ten pounds on the Nutrisystem’s Women’s Basic Plan, I decided to give it a try. She had such an easy time losing those first ten pounds, and she has not stopped raving about the program. Now I can see why.


I really like how easy it is to eat the right amount of food because it is all measured out for me. The Basic plan really makes it easy to keep track of my exercise and water consumption because I just enter it all in on the computer. I like being able to see what I’ve accomplished to reach my weight loss goals.


I have tried a lot of weight loss programs, and what I realizing is that this is the best one I’ve found. I am a little surprised as to how hard it is not stick to the food, but I know that is my own struggle with willpower, and I also know that particular struggle will get better as the time progresses. I’m happy with the plan, and I think it is definitely worth the investment of money because I can tell it is really going to help me lose the weight that I need to lose.


This program is great, but the portions sizes are smaller than I thought they would be

(3 out of 5 stars)

I have struggled with weight loss since I was a teenager. Now in my 40’s, I’m desperate to find a weight loss program that will help me to lose the weight so that I can live a healthy, long life. I’m great at exercising, but terrible at controlling my portions. Because of that struggle, I decided to try Nutrisystem because I need help with cutting down on the amount of food I am eating.


Nutrisystem has really helped with portion control. However, the portions seem a lot smaller than I thought they were going to be.  If I stick to their food, I’ll be certain to lose weight! The food tastes really good, but I wish there was more of it. I need to get used to how little I’m able to eat. I’m only a few days into the program, so hopefully I’ll get used to it soon.


One of the parts of this program that I really like is the Restaurant Guide. We love to eat out on the weekends, and I know this Restaurant Guide is going to help me a lot. I am happy so far with the plan, and I hope I’m finally on the way to getting to the weight I’ve always wanted to be.



Nutrisystem is like having my own dietician!

(5 out of 5 stars)

I just finished my 28th day on the Nutrisystem Women’s Basic Plan and I couldn’t be happier. I have lost ten pounds by sticking to their meals and tracking my exercise. I feel like this Nutrisystem Plan has given me a personal dietician in my own home.


I have such a hard time staying away from carbohydrates. The Nutrisystem Plan helps me get the right balance of carbohydrates and proteins without feeling like I am missing out on anything. I am fully satisfied after I eat these meals, and I have not been tempted to go off and eat other things. I love that I can eat three times a day with snacks, and I have such a nice variety of foods to eat. My favorite things are the muffins; I always tried to stay away from them before Nutrisystem, but now I can eat a Nutrisystem muffin without any guilt :-)


The other reason this program is so great is that now that I can control my food intake, I can also start working on my exercise routine. I love being able to track it online after each time I go for a walk or go to an aerobics class. 


I have already ordered another month’s worth of food, and I plan on continuing until I get to the weight I deserve to be.



I love the breakfasts and lunches, but have trouble with some of their dinner entrées

(3 out of 5 stars)

I have been using Nutrisystem for three weeks now and have lost a total of seven pounds, which is something that I am really proud of. Nutrisystem has definitely helped me with eating the right kinds of food and controlling how much I eat. I love the food at breakfast and lunch, but dinner is a little tough.


The cereals and muffins that I can get for breakfast are great. I love the taste, and I’ve not had anything that I dislike yet. The soups for lunch are fabulous, as are the pasta dishes. 


However, dinner is another story. I’m having trouble liking the dishes with meat, especially the ones with beef. The Homestyle Beef has been my least favorite so far. I don’t know if it is just me or not, but the beef tastes kind of chewy.


Since I’m losing weight, I plan on continuing with the Basic Plan, but I’m going to switch up what I choose for the dinner choices. I guess that is what is so good about the plan; I can change what I eat if I find something that I really dislike. Even though I don’t like some of the dinner food, this really is the best weight loss plan I’ve tried.



Love the food; need more help with exercise

(4 out of 5 stars)

For so many years, I’ve tried to lose 20 pounds. Sometimes I’ve tried to do it with exercise, other times I’ve tried to do it by not eating. I’ve finally realized that the experts are right; the only way to really lose weight is with both diet and exercise. 


Nutrisystem has helped me so much with the eating part of that.  Because the food is already made and correctly portioned, I don’t worry about eating too much. The food tastes really great, and never once have I felt like I needed to eat something else after I have finished one of their entrées.  I especially love the pasta dinner dishes. I feel like I can now eat pasta without feeling guilty; which is a nice change. Plus, I know that spending the money on the plan is helping me stick to it because I don’t want the money to go to waste. That really has helped me a lot.


The part I wish were different with Nutrisystem is the exercise portion. I know that I can enter my exercise online, but I wish there were some more specific guidelines as to how much I need to exercise. I know that Nutrisystem does not market themselves as a company that helps with exercise, but I’d sure love a little more help in that area.



This is the best weight loss plan I’ve ever been on

(5 out of 5 stars)

I have done Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig, and Atkins and I lost weight initially, but then I gained it all right back. I’ve been on Nutrisystem for three months, and I have not gained back any of the 20 pounds that I’ve lost while the diet plan. 


I think the reason that I’ve done so well on Nutrisystem is because I really like the food.  In the past, I always stayed away from things like muffins, granola bars, and pasta because I figured it would be too many calories. But then, after passing up on those things, I’d purge on junk food later. With Nutrisystem, I can have ravioli for dinner and feel like I had a real treat.  I think because I don’t feel like I am depriving myself of the food I really want to eat, I’m able to stick to the Nutrisystem meals and not splurge on junk food. I feel like the Nutrisystem meals are a splurge enough!


The other amazingly helpful part of the Nutrisystem Women’s Basic Plan is the Restaurant Guide. This has been really helpful in keeping me on track when my family goes out to eat. As a working mom, sometimes fast food is the only way dinner is going to happen, and the Nutrisystem Restaurant Guide has kept me on track on those nights.



I will never skip breakfast again!

(4 out of 5 stars)

I have been a chronic skipper of breakfast most of my adult life. No more. After Nutrisystem, I am sold on eating breakfast for weight loss. I absolutely adore their muffins and cereals. I am convinced that these delicious breakfast foods are helping me lose the weight that I have always wanted to lose. The Double Chocolate Muffins are my absolute favorite. 


Since being on Nutrisystem, I’ve learned how to eat healthy, correctly portioned meals. Eating breakfast helps me to stay full to lunch so that I’m not binging because I’m starving once lunchtime rolls around. I never feel guilty any more eating things like muffins because I’ve seen that while eating the Nutrisystem food I can lose weight. I’ve lost a total of eight pounds in four weeks on this plan and I could not be more thrilled. Now that the first eight pounds are off, I’m even more motivated to stick to the plan.


The other really great thing about this plan is the Restaurant Guide. I have to go out to lunch a lot with my clients, so having the Restaurant Guide at my disposal is extremely helpful because I can still take my clients out to lunch without worrying that I’m going off of my diet plan.



I like the food, but the snacks could be better

(3.5 out of 5 stars)

I have lost a total of 25 pounds on the Nutrisystem diet. I know that should make me give them 5 stars, but I have to be honest. I do not like the snacks that I have tried, especially the soy chips. I think they taste like paper. Of course, that’s probably why I’ve lost weight! The biscotti also isn’t that great. In my next order, I’m going to try some of the other snacks. 


That said, I do really like the meals, especially the breakfast choices. The muffins and granola bars taste really good.  So do the cereals. The lunches are pretty good, but I absolutely love the pasta dishes for dinner.


The Nutrisystem Women’s Plan is obviously working for me because, like I said, I’ve lost 25 pounds, and it has only taken me two months to do that. I am really happy with the weight loss, and this plan has, by far, been the easiest plan to implement. I like that I don’t have to cook the food or worry about counting calories, fat, or carbohydrates. I feel full after I eat, and this is the first weight loss program where I have felt like that. Overall, I’m happy with it.



This is the easiest weight loss plan!

(5 out of 5 stars)

I am not one for exercise, so the weight loss plans where they say you have to exercise 5 times a week really turn me off.  I know that Nutrisystem encourages exercise, but in two weeks I have lost 5 pounds without exercising at all. 


The food plan is so incredibly easy. I love that I just open up the boxes, and there is my food, ready for me to eat without having to cook or shop. I am so happy to have someone else decide the details of what I should eat, but that I still have choices. I also am thrilled that I am losing weight without having to exercise at all. I figure once I get more weight off I’ll feel more confident and maybe I’ll actually want to get to the gym and do some of that exercise I’m supposed to be doing.


I got so tired of having to try and figure out what I should cook eat night, not to mention what I should be eating at lunchtime so that I wouldn’t be running to the vending machine at 3:00 because I was so hungry. Nutrisystem is the easiest weight loss system out there. I am so happy with how it is working for me. I think I can really meet that initial goal that I set for myself.



Lunch and dinners are great!

(4 out of 5 stars)

I ordered my first round of Nutrisystem meals so that I could get them and start on January 1st. I am so happy with the results, because only two week into the plan, I have already lost six pounds.


I’m sure that this is because I don’t have to cook lunch and dinner. I can’t stand cooking, so I usually eat out. I am single, and it is much easier to just go through a drive-thru window for fast food than it is to cook for one person. Because I’m prone to do that, I’ve gained about 30 pounds that I shouldn’t be carrying. Now with Nutrisystem, I’m able to have my prepared meals ready to go at work and at home. The lunches and dinners are the very best thing about this plan. The food tastes so great. I absolutely love the Hearty Beef Stew because it reminds me of the stew my mom used to make for me when I was a kid. And I adore the Macaroni and Cheese as well.


The breakfasts are a little harder for me to get used to, as I’d love to sink my teeth into a huge bagel. I’m sure as time goes on, I’ll get more used to their breakfast choices.



I’m losing weight but I’m really hungry

(3 out of 5 stars)

I’ve been doing Nutrisystem for two weeks. I have lost three pounds, which I am thrilled about. However, I walk around really hungry!


I love the taste of the Nutrisystem Women’s Plan food. The problem is, it tastes so good that I want more of it. The Thick Crust Pizza tastes amazing.  So does the Sweet and Sour Chicken. I try to make myself slow down when I’m eating, but I still always want more when I’m done with what is on my plate. I am told that this will get easier soon because eating less than I am used to eating will make my stomach shrink. Of course, I shouldn’t complain because I am actually losing weight.  Nonetheless, I’m hoping this hunger problem gets better soon.


I think the Restaurant Guide will be helpful once I get over my portion control issue.  Until then, I can’t even go into my favorite restaurants because I would never be able to eat the small amounts of food that the guide suggests. 


I guess part of losing weight is feeling hungry, but that is not something I am used to. I’m trying it, and Nutrisystem seems to be working and helping me through it.



Nutrisystem even works around the holidays!

(4 out of 5 stars)

I started Nutrisystem right before the holidays, and I can’t believe how well it worked. I knew that waiting until the New Year to start the Women’s Basic Plan wasn’t going to work because I could not wait one more day to try and start losing weight. So, I ordered my food on the Basic Plan and scheduled my “free days” for Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day, and New Year’s Day. I still lost weight! Incredible! I made sure to that there weren’t going to be a lot of leftovers so that I could go back to my Nutrisystem meals the day after the holidays without being tempted by the fatty holiday foods.


I have lost about ten pounds so far. I feel like it should be a little more than that, but have you ever heard of someone losing ten pounds during the holidays? And honestly, I probably ate too much on my free days. I’m going to work on that over the next round of meals to see if that increases the weight loss. Also, I haven’t been exercising. I’m going to try and get in a noon walk each day to see if that will help. I am a true Nutrisystem fan!



I’ll never go back to Weight Watchers again!

(5 out of 5 stars)

I have been doing Weight Watchers for years with my friend. As she says, once all of your points are gone on Weight Watchers, you get to eat your spit for dinner! Well, my friend got really sick of doing the point thing, so she switched to Nutrisystem. My friend lost four pounds the first week and three pounds the second week on Nutrisystem. Once I heard about her success, I decided to switch, too.


I’ve now been on Nutrisystem for three months and I have lost 28 pounds! I am so excited! I feel like a new person and I get compliments on how I look all of the time. I get all of my meals prepared for me, planned for me, and best of all, they taste great. But the greatest thing about the Nutrisystem plan is that I don’t have to count points anymore! You have no idea how much easier it is to lose weight when you aren’t stressing about how many points you are eating. Nutrisystem has that all figured out for you. I also love that I don’t have to go to meetings. Nutrisystem is giving me time back because everything is completely planned out. Good-bye Weight Watchers!  Hello Nutrisystem!



Some of the food is great, but some of it isn’t so great

(3.5 out of 5 stars)

I just finished the first week of the Nutrisystem Women’s Basic Plan and I lost two pounds. I’m pretty happy about that. It seems kind of slow, but I haven’t been able to lose two pounds on any of the other weight loss programs that I have tried over the years. I have around 50 pounds to lose, so I figure two pounds a week is a pretty good rate.


I really do like a lot of the food they deliver. I’m really happy with all of the pasta dishes. The Chicken Pasta Parmesan is my favorite dinner meal so far. I like the BBQ Sauce over Beef, but the BBQ Sauce with Pork Wrap tastes a little too spicy to me. I do not like the Grilled Chicken Breast at all, and I wasn’t real thrilled with the Flame Broiled Beef Patty - I’ve been spoiled by Wendy’s.


I’m happier with the lunch choices though. All of the soups are great, but I really love the Chicken Salad. I also think that the breakfast choices and dessert options are really helping me to stick to the diet.


My solution to the foods that I don’t like is that I’m tracking which ones I do like. That way, I don’t order the dinners that I didn’t like again. Overall, I’m fairly happy with this diet plan.



I’m dying for a sandwich

(4 out of 5 stars)

I just finished two weeks on Nutrisystem. I’m desperately trying to lose 30 pounds, and I’ve been desperately trying to do that for five years! I’ve tried every weight loss program out there. You name it, I’ve done it!  Nutrisystem was my last resort! I figured if I spent the money for the food, maybe I would actually stick to the plan and lose some weight.


I think all of the food tastes really good, but I’m generally not a picky eater! I’m just thrilled that I don’t have to prepare it, cook it, or count calories! The only think that I really don’t like is the Turkey Hot Dog. I would love to have a sandwich option for lunch, as I’m dying for a ham and cheese sandwich!  Maybe someday they’ll make one. I haven’t looked at the Restaurant Guide yet. Maybe I can get a sandwich at a restaurant next week!


So far, I’ve lost six pounds eating Nutrisystem. My pants even feel a little loose! I couldn’t be happier. This eating plan is so easy that I barely think about it. I can see this becoming a normal way of eating for me. Hopefully Nutrisystem is the answer to my weight loss problems.



This food is delicious!

(5 out of 5 stars)

I’ve been on Nutrisystem for three months. I am so happy with it that I am encouraging all of my friends to try it.  After my three months of sticking to their regimen strictly, I have lost 21 pounds. I am psyched! I have never been able to lose weight easily, and I know I have found the magic plan in the Nutrisystem Women’s Basic Plan. It is working so well.


I love the way the food tastes. I don’t feel like I am missing out on anything! Pasta, chocolate, muffins, mashed potatoes!  You name it, I can eat it! The choices are amazing.  Every entrée tastes so different that I never get sick of eating the same thing. The Red Beans and Rice with Sausage is so good!  It tastes like my grandma’s! The chocolate choices are outstanding as well. The peppermint cookie patty is to die for!


I also love that I can still go out to eat and stay on the plan. The Restaurant Guide keeps me on track for my weight loss goals without having to miss out of the social aspect of going out to eat with my friends. Nutrisystem is my long-term solution for losing weight.



I can snack with my kids

(4.5 out of 5 stars)

I have struggled for so long to lose weight after having three kids. One of my greatest struggles is snacking with my kids. They love the cookies and the chips and the goldfish, and it is so easy for me to just grab handfuls of their snacks while I am sitting around talking to them. All this snacking has been keeping me from losing weight.


With Nutrisystem, I can snack on healthy substitutes and I don’t feel like I am missing out. When they eat their cheese puffs, I can get my Nutrisystem Cheese Puffs out. When they eat a brownie, I can eat my Nutrisystem Fudge Brownie. When they get a candy bar, I can eat a Nutrisystem candy bar. Now I can have the kids’ snacks in the house without being tempted to eat them. It is so freeing! Losing weight has never been so much fun.


So far, after six months on Nutrisystem, I have lost 20 pounds. I am so happy. I am now confident enough to add in exercise and I know that will increase the rate at which I am losing weight. I have a long way to go, but I know with Nutrisystem’s help, I’ll get there before I know it.



My sisters and I are doing this together

(5 out of 5 stars)

My sisters and I are really close. There are four of us. All of us love to eat, we love to eat together, and we are all obese. For Christmas, we decided to invest in our bodies instead of on Christmas gifts for one another. So, we all bought a 28-day Nutrisystem Women’s Basic Plan. Let me tell you, the results are stunning.


In the first 28 days, all of us have lost at least five pounds. One of my sisters lost eight pounds, but that is because she started walking three days a week. We eat together and look at each other’s meals to see if we would like to try that entrée on a different day. Since we are doing it together it is working really well. None of us have jumped the weight loss ship. It feels good to have the accountability with my sisters, but I know that I couldn’t be doing this without Nutrisystem.


The food tastes incredible, which is what I like most about it. I love not having to count carbohydrates, which is what I’ve spent years doing and it has never worked. I can see how Nutrisystem could really help me with portion control and teach me good eating habits for years to come.



Everything tastes okay except the cereal

(3.5 out of 5 stars)

My favorite meal of the day is breakfast. I love to sink my teeth into a big bagel or English muffin in the morning. I also love cereal. But, I know I need to lose weight, which is why I decided to try Nutrisystem. Not one to want to spend much time in the kitchen, this plan seemed to be the most practical one for me.


I have to say, I really do love the lunch, dinner, desserts and snacks that I’ve tried so far. It is the breakfast that I’m having trouble with. I do not like the taste of the cereal at all. It is hard to describe. I kind of think it tastes like cardboard. I haven’t tried all of them yet, but that is my general feeling about the cereal during the first three weeks of the plan. I’m happy with the muffins and the granola bars, so I’ll probably need to stick with those choices for breakfast.


The desserts are helping me to stick to the plan, I think. If I know I have a dessert to look forward to, I am less likely to eat when I should have stopped. The Chocolate Cake is really awesome. I haven’t tried the Chocolate Chip Pudding yet, but it is on my list for tomorrow.



My husband and I are doing this together

(5 out of 5 stars)

My husband and I made a New Year’s Resolution to lose weight together. We knew that we would never stick to it if we didn’t have a plan.  We looked at all of the weight loss plans out there, and Nutrisystem seemed like the best way to go for us. No meetings, no point counting, no weigh-ins, and flexibility in exercise are the parts of the plan that appealed to us.


My husband is an extremely picky eater, and he absolutely adores this food. One of the greatest things about this is that I don’t have to spend time cooking or doing dishes. Eating the Nutrisystem prepared food has given me my evenings back.  While I love the taste of the food, it is the convenience that is so appealing to me. I feel like we are eating restaurant quality food every single day, three meals a day. It is amazing!


My husband has lost six pound so far, but I have only lost three pounds. I’m okay with that difference because my husband has more to lose than I do. I’m just glad that I have a partner to do this with. In just two weeks we have more energy and enthusiasm for life. It is really great! I’m so happy that we made this decision.
