If you’ve been obese for a while, you’re probably sick and tired of all the “magical” weight loss plans and schemes. By now, it’s no secret that the vast majority of those programs will either leave you starving or feeling deprived. In my entire adult life, I’ve not found a single weight loss method that I was able to stick with for more than a couple of weeks – until Nutrisystem.
What makes Nutrisystem so different than the other weight loss programs, I hear you asking? For starters, it doesn’t leave you counting carbs or weighing your portion sizes every miserable morning. What you do is buy your meals from Nutrisystem, and the company will ship them to your door. You can have some fresh fruits and vegetables with that, but the Nutrisystem food will be the main dish on your menu. This is not a perfect method. You can’t just eat whatever you want, and alcohol is pretty much a no-no. But as I’ve recently found out, it does actually help you lose weight.
Now, my life story is probably similar to yours. Ever since college, I ate and drank pretty much whatever I felt like, never thinking about the consequences. Even after I graduated, I spent the next six years following that general pattern. As you might imagine, this was not a happy time for me. I was painfully aware that I was too obese for my own good, and I let these bad thoughts completely dominate my life.
About three months back, I met this cute girl who had just moved to my neighborhood. She seemed nice and friendly whenever I talked with her, but I couldn’t help noticing her glancing at my belly every now and then. I might have just been imagining it, but it seemed like she felt sorry for me. That was pretty much the breaking point. After a couple of days, I started following the Nutrisystem program. By the end of the first week, I had already lost 5 lbs. I even started exercising – not because I had to, but because I felt like it!
Marshall Lost 75 Lbs
One Nutrisystem success story which inspired me is that of Marshall J. For many years, J. Marshall was obese and not happy at all with himself. He didn’t have good eating habits. At college, he used to eat and drink whatever he found in the dining halls. From Krispy Kreme doughnuts and cookies to ice-cream and pizza. Like me, Marshall liked a beautiful girl in his neighbor. Unfortunately, the girl was put off by Marshall’s appearance. This was a strong motivation for him to join Nutrisystem and lose 75 lbs. He is now dating every week this gorgeous girl, who is thoroughly impressed by Marshall’s new physique.
Why does Nutrisystem work so well? There are three main reasons:
- Food Philosophy
As Lodlois attests, the Nutrisystem program doesn’t rely on gimmicks. Their diet is high in fiber and protein, and it also contains the so-called “smart” carbs which reduce cravings and keep blood sugar stable. There are no preservatives or trans fats, so there’s no need to worry you’ll eat something you shouldn’t. The meals are frequent, and your typical day will probably have you eating six different dishes. And to top it off, the food itself is absolutely delicious.
You might think having your meals delivered to your home is an expensive proposition, but Nutrisystem is the most affordable diet program of its kind out there. At just $10/day, it puts DiettoGo and BistroMD to shame. The oft-lauded Jenny Craig program costs twice as much! It seems kind of silly to pay less money and get better performance, but here we are.
Finally, you should know that it’s been clinically proven that Nutrisystem helps you lose weight. In a 2015 study ran by the Annals of Internal Medicine, it was discovered that Nutrisystem participants lost over 3.8% more weight than the other control groups. Another study had Nutrisystem customers keep their weight diaries – out of 100,000 people, 79% of them lost at least 5% of their original weight and 33% had lost 10% or more.
As you can see, this is not another weight loss fad. As for myself, I’ve finally built up my confidence and started dating after many years of being single! My family and friends can’t help but be impressed, but the most important thing is that I feel better than ever.
