Dietitians comments about the Nutrisystem Diet
Nutrisystem offers online support and tools that can be used by
all members, but the actual diet plan and menus are designed to sell
their prepackaged foods, which are expensive for what you get, just
like any other packaged food based diet plan. These types of diets can
isolate the dieter from the rest of the family because they have to
eat differently than family members. Rigid menu plans and packaged
foods take the thinking out of dieting, so you still have to learn how
to eat in the real world to keep the weight off. Why not learn this
while you lose weight without having to buy expensive diet foods?
