Nutrisystem – Before & After

Disclosure: I received three months of Nutrisystem in exchange for my unbiased, honest review. All opinions expressed are 100% my own.

I am so sad to see my Nutrisystem NSNation experience come to a close. Nutrisystem has really helped me get my weight back on track. It has been a long road filled with ups and downs but as of yesterday, I hit my goal of 135 lbs – that is a weight loss of 21 lbs in just 3 months. That may not sound like much, but I had already lost over 50 lbs. My doctor has told me she absolutely does not want to see me at less than 135 lbs and that is fine with me. I am 5’7 so I am on the tall side for a woman. I think that 135 is a great weight for me – now I just need to work on toning up a bit more. The workouts were the hardest for me to get to because – if I am being totally honest – I have been really busy with this blog. If I have free time, I am trying to get a post or two done rather than spend 30 minutes working out. However, with the weather getting warmer, I will be going outside for walks with my girls and getting much more exercise.

I highly recommend Nutrisystem for any one who has issues with portion control and healthy foods. For me, finding time to make myself something heathly was hard. By the time I fed the girls, half the time I would skip lunch and binge eat later. That is not good at all. I am thrilled that I have about 1.5 weeks left of foods because of receiving the new foods to try part way through last month and because of a vacation I took. So I will continue to eat those and I may be ordering some breakfasts and lunches out of my own pocket. There were a lot that I loved and it would be great to have on hand for busy days. I am even toying with the idea of purchasing another Fast 5+ box. I LOVED those shakes.

The Nutrisystem food has been delicious. I was so pleased with almost every single meal I tried. The food gets delivered right to your door which makes life easy! Think about it, all your meals, portioned out, delivered to your door. All you have to go out and purchase are fresh veggies. Below are my absolute favorite Nutrisystem foods. It was hard to choose just one from each category, but I did it! These are my recommendations if you go ahead and sign up (which I totally think you should).

 cinnamon roll

Favorite Breakfast Meal: Cinnamon bun – This is a frozen meal and it takes just seconds to prepare in the microwave. You eat it warm and it just melts in your mouth. It tastes amazing. Do yourself a favor, and have it with a nice cup of coffee! Yum!

Chicken Quesadilla Lunch

Favorite Lunch Meal: Chicken & Cheese Quesadilla –  It takes about 15 minutes to prepare in the oven and is so delicious. It is cheesy and the flavors are amazing. I was so bummed when I did not receive any for month 3. If I do purchase some lunches, I will be grabbing a ton of these!

Nutrisystem Pizza

Favorite Dinner Meal: Italian Sausage & Turkey Pizza – I am a sucker for pizza. I love it. I could eat it every single day. This pizza was delicious. I really enjoyed the flavors of the meats. Hand down, one of the best pizzas I have ever had!

Fudge Brownie Dessert

Favorite DessertFudge Brownie – I have said before how much I love chocolate and sweets so this was an obvious favorite for me. It tasted like it was so bad for me – which is awesome.

My good blogging buddy Joyce over at Women and Their Pretties starts her journey today –

so read about her experience on her blog here.


I was so excited that I hit my goal! I feel so much healthier now and I know I have learned a lot about portion control and what foods are better to eat than others. I feel like I can really see a difference in my face. I started at 156 lbs and am now 135. I feel amazing! Thank you Nutrisystem!

You have done really well with that amount in that short of an amount of time, it is always probably healthier to loose slowly and start new eating habits over time and not too quickly. Looking good!

I believe for 3 months a weight loss of 21 pounds is a good healthy amount. One you won't gain right back. The food looks awesome and if it tastes as good as you say that wouldn't be a problem for me. The portion control is what would help me the most. A portion to me is how ever much fills me, usually I end up way to full once it has settled. Good luck with your toning, my daughter says exercise is very addicting.

I'm happy to see a review for Nutrisystems. I've consider it, but always wonder if it works and if the food is any good
