The most important question – does it work?
Most dieters on this plan find they lose around 1-2 pounds a week after a slightly higher loss their first week on the plan (possibly due to water weight). This is a very healthy rate of weight loss and more likely to be maintained. Most report weight loss in the 10-25 pound range though some have lost considerably more weight.
The best thing about Nutrisystem is that after you’ve been on it for a month or two, you begin to change your lifestyle and that’s what it’s all about. Changing your lifestyle and eating habits will usually result in a happier, healthier, and slimmer you.
