Lisa’s story – one woman’s weight loss journey with Nutrisystem

In January 2015, Lisa, a 47-year-old office manager, was feeling depressed. Underweight as a child and even into her thirties, she had seen the pounds pile on after her daughter left for college, and, at 168 pounds her health was beginning to suffer – joint problems, acid reflux, chest pains and poor circulation. She was also suffering from low self-esteem. Although she knew that she needed to lose weight, her previous attempts at dieting had all failed. The diet plans were too boring, and there was no evidence they worked.

In desperation, she decided to try the Nutrisystem diet. She and her husband got into the car, headed to their local Walmart, and she bought a Nutrisystem five day weight loss kit.

Fast forward a year and Lisa is now a new woman – or half of one! She has lost more than 50 pounds in weight, and her dress size has shrunk from a size 12 to a size 4. Not only has her weight fallen. She is now healthier her self-confidence has soared. Lisa’s story is not unique. Nutrisystem’s website has similar success stories from many other women, and men, who have lost similar weight to Lisa, or even more.

Apparently, some people firmly believe that Nutrisystem has helped them shed the pounds.

Does Nutrisystem actually work?

Certainly! controlling calories and portion sizes, and eating regular meals should result in weight loss if you stick to the program. The meals provided are good for you “nutrition-wise”, and if you keep to the pre-packaged foods and only supplement them with healthy sides like fresh fruit and vegetables, then the pounds should come off.

However, there can be issues when transitioning back to real food and, despite the promotional offers, these plans are still relatively expensive. Finally, while the diet is suitable for people with heart disease, high blood pressure, and diabetes, anybody with an underlying medical condition should always consult their doctor before starting on the program.
