Knowing whether a diet will work for you is really one of the most important aspects of starting any program you may be interested in trying. So when faced with the sign-up page of a major company like Nutrisystem, it’s vital that you are confident that it will work for you before you spend your money.

So the question that kicks off this article is: “How well does Nutrisystem work?” We’ll explore that question in depth in this article and come up with our own conclusions rather than those of the sale pitch that everyone else is coming out with. After all, aren’t all those so-called reviews just a bunch of sales pitches designed to get you to buy the product?

Seeing Through the Sales Pitch

Well, for sure there are loads of sales pitches out there all trying to get you to buy this popular home delivery diet system and they all say how great the product is. But they don’t tell you about any of the flaws, or any of the down sides of going on their diet.

They don’t mention any adverse effects anyone experiences by going on the diet. Nor do they mention how successful all the people are who go on the plan.

That’s because they don’t want you to be put off by a bunch of negative statistics or information.

Surprisingly, plenty of people don’t necessarily care about that! There are down sides to going on this program and there are some negative effects that some people get when they go on their diet.

Pros and Cons

So I’m going to tell you what some of them are that I know about. I’m also going to offer some common sense explanations for the complaints that I’m going to tell you about and let you be the judge.

Well, the first and biggest load of complaining I hear is that the meals they provide you with either don’t fill you up enough, of you feel hungry too soon after eating them. But complaints like that don’t tell the whole story. Why do you suppose most people don’t feel full up after eating one of the Nutrisystem meals?

Come on, it’s a no brainer!

A lot of people who go on the diet are used to eating huge meals, which is why they’re overweight in the first place. So when they eat a meal that is the right size for a person who eats normally and is at the correct weight, of course its not enough, because they’re simply not used to eating regular sized meals!

Are You Hungry?

Ok, the complaint about feeling hungry again too soon after eating the meals. See my last explanation! It’s the same thing because most overweight people simply eat so much. It stands to reason a smaller meal will get digested quicker and leave them feeling hungry again well before its time for the next meal.

The solution to the above two complaints, and it’s one recommended by Nutrisystem themselves, is to add some freshly cooked vegetables to the meals to bulk them out with what are low calorie accessories. You know, carrots, peas, beans, broccoli… that’s the green stuff you get from the fresh produce section of the supermarket if you’ve never been there before I suggest you start buying some stuff from there and learning how to prepare and cook it.

It might save your life!

Gas

Another complaint is that the Nutrisystem diet meals give some people gas. Well, yes that’s going to happen when you start eating real food after years of eating garbage. Your digestive system gets a reminder of what its there for and the by product can be gas.

At least for a while until you get used to real food again. Hint, pizza is NOT real food…

The cost of this plan puts some people off. Like it costs around $300 a month more or less depending on the plan you choose. That’s $75 or less a week. What do you normally spend a week on food for yourself? Well, you deduct that from the $75 and whatever is left is what it costs.

If it’s less than $50, then that’s a darn cheap way to get your life back, don’t you think?

Ok, so down to the nitty gritty.

Does it work?

You can read up some more about this aspect of whether this diet works for its customers by reading this great article here: Nutrisystem review The simple answer is that it works if you stick to the plan and don’t cheat. It helps if you do some light daily exercise to give your body a chance to burn off all the stored fat.

If you can do those two simple things, then yes, Nutrisystem works.

If you’re a lazy person and refuse to do any exercise, or you’re going to cheat by sneaking a chocolate cream bun in between meals when no one is looking, then it is not going to work for you. Contact your local undertaker and get yourself measured up for their XXXXXL super-coffin, because your lazy carcass is going to need it pretty soon…

But if you’re determined and really want to get slim, healthy and feel great and want a convenient way of dieting that doesn’t take up any of your valuable free time, then go for it. Because it was made just for you!”
