Nutrisystem Reviews (UPDATED 2017) : The Best Meal Replacement Option?

There’s no denying that Nutrisystem is one of the most popular (and advanced) weight loss systems on the market right now. During our time in the weight loss industry, we have come across countless (professional and anecdotal) reviews that almost always seem to be highly positive.

In this report, we are going to be looking impartially at all aspects of Nutrisystem to identify its strengths and expose any weaknesses.

nutrisystemWhat Is Nutrisystem?

Nutrisystem is a complete diet plan that achieves success by entirely removing the calorie counting and meal planning aspect of weight loss. The system revolves around you ordering and eating complete meals from Nutrisystem which seamlessly integrate with their diet plans.

There is no limit to the amount of time you can use a Nutrisystem diet plan (until you meet your target weight) but their plans generally run for 28 days at a time.

What Are Turbo 10 and Lean 13?

The two most popular versions of Nutrisystem are Turbo 10 and Lean 13 – both of which revolve around providing meals from the Nutrisystem menu delivered to your door.

Turbo 10

Turbo 10 is the cheapest version of the Nutrisystem plan (it’s also one of the most popular). Meal selection is taken care of for you unless you use the “Uniquely yours” option for an additional premium.

Lean 13

Lean 13 is a new and improved version of the original Turbo 10 plan and was released in 2016. It follows a similar format and guarantees that you will lose 13 pounds and 7 inches in your first month.

Who Makes Nutrisystem?

Nutrisystem is a US based company with their head offices located in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. They are one of the longest-running and most respected organizations in the weight loss industry (they were founded in 1972).

How Does Nutrisystem Work?

The concept behind Nutrisystem is reasonably simple, and while there is nothing groundbreaking about their methodology – they have certainly perfected the system.

The process starts when you sign up to one of their many plans (which provide the framework for your weight loss). There are plans for people of all shapes, sizes, and genders, which allows you to be reasonably specific with your needs.

Once you’ve picked your plan you then order all your food directly from their website which is delivered to your door. Each of the meals on their site corresponds to a part of your plan, so instead of counting calories, you just pick a pre-prepared meal from the menu.

As you would expect, the menus that are part of each plan are strictly calorie controlled to encourage healthy, safe, and fast weight loss.

Is Nutrisystem For Men Or Women?

According to our research, Nutrisystem is predominantly used by women. However, despite this, there is no shortage of men using the system either. There are several plans specifically designed for male calorific intake levels that anecdotally achieve excellent results.

What’s The Leaf and NuMi?

The Leaf is Nutrisystem’s long-established (and well respected) weight loss blog that forms the backbone of inspiration and support for people all over the world using the plan. This is something that not many other diet plans provide (at least not to such a high quality). We anecdotally hear that this is excellent for willpower for people on the plan.

NuMi is an all in one calorie counter, meal diary, and fitness tracker that can be accessed by anyone on a Nutrisystem plan. It’s anecdotally an excellent motivational tool that is almost unanimously well received. People often comment positively about the daily motivation feed on the platform (that is written by the Nutrisystem team).

What’s In Nutrisystem’s Products?

Nutrisystem is anecdotally well known for the quality of the ingredients they use in their products. They have one of the largest menus we have ever come across while reviewing diet plans.

All of their products use natural ingredients without any artificial colorings, flavorings, or preservatives. They also have a wide range of food options available that are suitable for vegans, vegetarians, and people who suffer from common allergies.

Is Nutrisystem Safe?

Nutrisystem has been running for over 40 years and during this time they have amassed a reputation for impeccable food safety standards. All their ingredients are FDA certified as safe and are prepared under strict hygienic conditions.

Many of Nutrisystem’s main plans are not suitable people with type 2 diabetes. After listening to customer feedback, they released “Nutrisystem D”. This is a plan that has been specifically formulated to address the needs of diabetics (and has been very well received).

Are There Any Nutrisystem Reviews?

There are a large number of impartial Nutrisystem reviews that can be easily found online. They are generally overwhelmingly positive in nature. During our research for this report, we noticed a few recurring themes within them.

The simplicity of the system was also regularly praised in many customer reviews we found. Several people enjoyed the stress-free “a la carte” style of dining it permitted without having to calculate every little detail.

nutrisystem reviewsDoes Nutrisystem Work? (Or Is It A Scam?)

We can confidently say that Nutrisystem is a viable and effective way to achieve rapid weight loss. The meal plans are comprehensive and their food is anecdotally reviewed as being very enjoyable. The calorific content of their products is impressively low, especially in their dessert options.

By sticking to the Nutrisystem plan, rapid weight loss is literally guaranteed.

Do We Recommend Nutrisystem?

We highly recommend Nutrisystem for several reasons.

One of the biggest issues with diet plans like this is that they often provide the consumer with limited meal options. Nutrisystem has a vast array of items on their menu which ensures that “burn out” (aka boredom) is highly unlikely.

We are also very impressed with the quality of their food (which is another common issue for diet plans like this). It’s clear to us from anecdotal reviews that they have invested a large amount of time and effort into creating the perfect balance between calorific content and flavor.

(Note: To put it bluntly, this is the most important part of a good diet plan. If it doesn’t have great tasting food, consumers are much less likely to stick to it and achieve their target weight.)

We also highly regard the structure of the diet plan itself. It’s one of the most straightforward system designs we have ever come across and requires minimal effort to become accustomed to.

Where Can I Buy Nutrisystem’s Products?

The best place to buy Nutrisystem’s products (and join their plans) is through their website. You may be able to find their products on Amazon and other online retailers, but on third-party sites, the selection is limited. We highly recommend you buy directly from the organization itself.

Are There Guarantees Or Free Trials?

Nutrisystem has a comprehensive money back weight loss guarantee. If you’re unhappy with your progress you can simply return any unused products for a full refund. Anecdotally we hear very good things about Nutrisystem’s customer service and believe this process to be as quick and simple as the organization claims.

Conclusion

As you may know from our other reviews, we are generally very reserved with our recommendations and don’t like risking our hard earned reputation needlessly. So it’s rare that we feel that we are able to recommend a product as strongly as we recommend Nutrisystem.

We are highly confident in the efficacy and quality of Nutrisystem and the results it can provide. It’s one of the safest, quickest, and most effective diet plans we have ever come across.

When we combine all the benefits we have listed above with the systems very reasonable price tag – it’s very easy for us to wholeheartedly recommend it.

It is more than worthy of your consideration.
