Re: medifast or nutrisystem???????

I began Nutrisystem on 2/12. I need to lose about 100 lbs. I dropped 20 lbs in the first 2 weeks. The food is really pretty good, it is tough the first 2-3 days as you adjust to the reduced amount of food...approx. 1200 calories a day. After that, it is just fine. They are running a special right now at their website which will give you 1 weeks food free if you join and use their autoship plan. Also on the site they offer an additional $15 off your first order.

Re: medifast or nutrisystem???????

1200 calories a day seems like a lot.. for some reason i dont lose unless im at 1000 or under.. i know medifast is around 800 and they are offering the same deal.. i think i might go with medifast but wanted feedback before deciding. thanks and good luck!!

My sister and her husband were both on nutrisystem any weight they lost they gained right back after they stopped eating the food. I was thinking about it but I think its to expensive and I have tried the food and I think it's yucky..
Good luck with whatever you choose.

Re: medifast or nutrisystem???????

all these "diets" work as long as you are on them. the main problem with the shakes, optifast and medifast, are that they don't teach you good life long eating habits or portion control. most people, once they go off the shakes, gain their weight back. better to take the effort and cash and take some healthy cooking classes and learn how to incorporate a healthy lifestyle that you can keep up for the long term.
good luck!
