    I tried Nutrisystem for diabetics.... ew ew ew ew
  • I tried both and yep, lost weight but guess what? As soon as you stop eating their food...the weight comes back...and then some.

    Of course, it's completely up to you, but you'd fare much better to make eating healthy and regular exercise a part of a new lifestyle.

    Good luck in whatever you choose! :happy:

    This. My dad did Nutrisystem twice, and yes, he lost all his weight, but as soon as he started eating regular foods again, he gained it all back. It's much better to learn about portion control of the things that you currently eat, so that you maintain the weight that you end up at.

    I did NS hardcore last year for about 5 months and dropped 30 lbs. I have been doing it about 30% of the time now and have lost an additional 8 lbs and have kept it ALL off.

    I LOVE about 75% of the food and it has helped me transition into liking healthier food (as you supplement in a ton of veggies, lean proteins, etc)
