Just curious if anyone saw results and if they lasted. Thanks!

I have years ago. It worked but you really don't learn how to cook/prepare meals etc. All diets work but it is a life style change that will make it stick.

I did years ago and its effectively all soy and made me ill.

I did it about 17 years ago. I lost 100 pounds in a year, and then put it all back on the following year. ANd then more in the years following that! I thought the food was decent, but that was so long ago that I'm sure they've changed since then.

I think if you use it to teach yourself portion control it can work. But at some point you have to learn to buy, prepare and eat normal food.

I did a few years ago and was successful with weight loss. However, the program doesn't teach you portion control or how to prepare healthy meals. Plus, I found the nutrisystem food to be pretty gross and I'm not a picky eater. It does work and possibly worth a shot if you feel it will help you get started on your weight loss.

I looked at the food on their website and it looked repulsive - couldn't bring myself to even consider trying it.

I tried it. I lost the weight, got an ulcer from it, and since I had no idea how to eat to maintain it once off their special foods, I gained it all back. And it was expensive. Not a fan. MFP, with a 40, 30, 30 macro split, and trying to eat most carbs from fruits, veggies, and whole grains works better in my opinion -- and it's free!

I tried nutrisystem back in 2010. It was okay, but really expensive. I lost 5 pounds I think in that month.
In my opinion, it is waaaaay smarter to buy your own food. Chicken breasts, veggies, whole wheat pasta/rice, eggs, fruits, nuts. You can eat way better without it.
Butttttt if it's the only way for a person to stick to it then it is worth it.
