My question is Information on best Nutrisystem diet programs? Many thanks for any response. Another question on my mind: Yes, it is TRUE!!! Nutrisystem has made me overweight. Of course everyone who's been in these forums for any length of time knows that's a good thing..

I'm no longer obese, I've finally reached the point on my BMI where I'm now considered to be overweight..

I read much more than I post on these forums. I know lots of people are just starting out and looking for support and inspiration as well as advice and tips. These forums are a great place for that. I don't have any tips or tricks, I just followed the plan to the letter. However, if your reading this and wondering if Nutrisystem really works, I'm here to tell you it does..

Here is my Nutrisystem experience so far..

(1/01/2008, Male, Age 44, Height 6'1", Weight 357 pounds).

Last year January 01, 2008 I decided I wanted to lose weight. I didn't have a real diet plan or anything, I just decided to cut out the junk food and eat healthier. Well, that sort of worked, but I only lost 15 pounds in 3 months..

I was hoping for more weight loss. I sat in front of my T.V. eating some popcorn and I saw a commercial with Larry the Cable Guy talking about Nutrisystem. I figured if that ol' boy could do it, then so could I. I ordered my food the first week of April 2008 and started Nutrisystem on April 15, 2008..

(4/15/2008, Male, Age 44, Height 6'1", Weight 342 pounds).

After receiving my food and reading all the provided literature I was ready to do this. Weighing in at 342 pounds I was a little overwhelmed by the amount of weight I had to lose and the long road ahead of me. I decided not to think about the journey itself but the steps I had to take that would bring me on that journey. I said to myself "I will do this one week without cheating", I thought if I didn't cheat, then maybe I would have good results and it would help keep me motivated to do another week. Well, I won't lie that first week was tough on me. I was use to eating much more food, and snacking in the evenings.

I weighed in at the end of that first week and was very pleased with the results. So I did it for another week at 100% no cheating, and again great results. Those weeks turned into months, and after the first 4-5 weeks I was use to the portions and was feeling much better. It took me about 6 weeks to realize I wasn't really on a diet anymore, that I had actually made a lifestyle change by eating more fruits and vegetables as well as learning portion control and making smart food choices..

It doesn't take long to start having NSV's (Nutrisystem Victory). Here are some of mine:.

No more Blood Pressure Medicine.

Cholesterol down from 242 to 174.

Lost 11 inches off my waist, and more shocking I lost 4.5 inches off my neck..

Hip and knee pain completely gone..

Sleep better, no more snoring.

(1/05/2009, Male, Age 45, Height 6'1", Weight 225 pounds).

I still have 30 more pounds to lose until I reach my goal weight. No doubt I'll reach that goal. These forums were a great help and inspiration to me. Especially those first few weeks. I did not and do not interact much on these forums, but I do read them quite a bit. So if you are wondering if Nutrisystem works, yes it does.

I'm yet another one of those success stories in the making. I've lost 117 pounds on Nutrisystem since April 15, 2008..

If you want to lose weight you'll have to work at it. Losing weight is work. Nutrisystem is a tool to help you lose weight, actually Nutrisystem is more like powertools. It makes your work much easier. No one can say anything or do anything to motivate you to lose weight. It has to come from within.

I'm not a success story yet (even though I've already lost more than 100 pounds), but I'm well on my way to becoming one...

Hmm... I need to find out myself. I don't know what is the right answer to your question. I'll do some research and get back to you if I got an answer. You should email the people at Nutrisystem as they probably can help you..

Outstanding story and results. Keep up the great work..

You are totally correct about it not being a diet but a lifestyle change..

People continue to ask when I will be "done with my diet" since I have lost 47 pounds. I tell them that I am not stopping since what I eat now will be what I continue to eat even when I stop ordering Nutrisystem food..

Interesting story is that over the holidays I was away from home for most of the holiday meals, which means I didn't have control over the menus. However I did apply the lessons learned over the last three months and actually continued to lose weight..

Fantastic success! I must admit I feel just like you do - dispite the 100+ pounds, I won't feel successful until I reach my goal. Thank heavens I'm back on track after the holidays and as of this morning just up 1 pound..

Thanks for sharing!..
