Nutrisystem for men feedback???
Well, a coworker/friend of mine just finished 5 weeks on the nutrisystem for men program and lost 25 lbs of almost ALL FAT. I have seen and sampled the food and it's nothing special but much easier to eat than most diet food.
I am considering doing this with about 100 grams of protein added in there each day to help lose about 20 lbs of bodyfat and hold on to most of my muscle.
Has anyone on here ever used this program and if so, what are your experiences? My friend is the only guy I know that has run it and he really was happy with it overall.
In a nutshell it is a glycemic index program. Thanks and Karma for any feedback you all can provide.

Let me just ask this: how much??
I ask because I'm betting you will get BETTER results with Bobo's deluxe weight loss program and it will probably be cheaper than Nutrisystem.
Go to flanutriton.com and contact us to see if he's taking clients if you are interested.

Good point and I might of failed to mention that it's not costing me anything because of someone I know that works for them. So I may pay my friend a small amount to them as a favor fee, but I'm not having to pay the $289 fee the program normally costs. The thing that is appealing about this setup is that the food is very easy to make and portable. I will look at the other plan however and thanks for your reply.

That is cool.
The thing with Bobo is that he also does your workout plan and is available (via email) for help at seemingly any time.
I doubt NS has any sort of workout system.
AND he'll revise your meal plan as needed to keep you moving along with your goals.
When I used him, he'd reply in like 5 mins. or less.
He may be a bit more busy now, but still the "tech. support" aspect is top notch.

Pure fat loss of more than 2-3lbs per week is unusual. Fat loss while minimizing muscle loss is more of a long term thing.
My point is there are better ways to reach the goal you're trying to attain...plus you'll come out better in the long run.

yeah but then I can't have a good excuse to use gear.

If your serious about training and want a "lifestyle change" diet along with training go with Bobo - very strict, no cheating for optimal results - gauranteed better results than any "diet system"
Nutrisystem works for weight loss for sure - with the lower gi foods and smaller portions your on your way to healthier eating coupled with minimal excercise and "most" clients being out of shape and overweight will have great results just like your friend - but I would only do this is your after thin vs. fat compared to bobos where your fat to jacked with a little dedication and patience
no more is the hard part but worth it in the end

I have used it and had great results. I avg lost 3-4 pounds a week but I also was taking meltdown. The food taste great and if you are on the go alot the food is very quick and easy to make. Instead of the 5 meals a day that you get from them. I was eating 7 because I added a morning protein drink and one before bed. I never was hunger on the diet which is a plus. So far I lost 25.2 pounds and 5 inchs.

i didn't bother to read all of the replies, but nutrisystem is basically just them couting calories for you.
they give you meals that, for which they know the amount of calories, and tell you to each that amount of calories for x amount of time- and you lose weight.
its basically a clean diet for those too lazy to count calories themselves.
For me, the action IS the juice.

I agree, this can be done cheaper by just purchasing and preparing the rite foods yourself..
