It’s that time again—the time when I start to consider a weight loss program.
With so many options out there, I usually get bogged down in my search and ultimately decide, “well, maybe I’ll wait a bit.” The wait has turned into years and I’m finally ready to get serious and commit.
I came across all the typical big names in my research. However, the one that really surprised me was Nutrisystem. Everyone knows the famous meal-delivery service and weight loss program, but it looks like they’ve made some changes. I came across a variety of plans for women, men, partners and people with diabetes, but I was most intrigued by their new Uniquely Yours Max+ plan, which customers had been raving about—allegedly touting Nutrisystem’s best menu ever.
My biggest hesitation before starting any weight loss program was always the possibility of horrible and dragging hunger-pangs. I never thought I could get through a weight loss program without my hangry-side showing due to the lower calories and smaller portions. The Nutrisystem Uniquely Yours Max+ plan seemed different, promoting a protein-powered approach with premium meal choices and personalized nutrition.
If I was ever going to try a weight loss plan, this was it. I decided to give it a shot.
The four-week plan comes with meals and snacks on your schedule—enjoy Nutrisystem food five or seven days a week. There are over 160 menu choices, so I wasn’t worried about a lack of variety. I went with the Chef’s Choice menu that was recommended for first-timers so I could try the most popular dishes. Not only did I fall in love with the convenience, but also the meals themselves.
In my first few days, I enjoyed some of their Restaurant Faves like Bistro-Style Toasted Ravioli, Beef, Bean & Cheese Burrito, Café-Style Creamy Tomato Soup, and even their Grain-Crusted Fish with Vegetables—which, to my surprise, was actually incredible! There’s barely any meal prep or cooking involved. You just toss the meals in a microwave or skillet, heat, and eat. There is no other program out there like it. I can even add in some of my favorite healthy grocery additions, like yogurt, veggies and fresh fruit.
Hunger never crossed my mind with their Hearty Inspirations™ dinners, which provide up to 30 grams of protein in each meal. Plus, the food was delicious! I can’t believe I went through all the work of meal-prepping bland chicken and veggies when Nutrisystem was an option.
I was also impressed by their free NuMi® smart app. It helps me monitor food, water and activity while also providing daily motivators and free healthy recipes (in case I want to try making healthy meals on my own). Because I chose the Uniquely Yours Max+ Plan, the app also personalized my meal plan to keep me feeling full and satisfied while losing weight.
I thought that would be all the support I’d get, but Nutrisystem also allows me to chat on-demand with their trained Weight Loss Coaches by phone or online, seven days a week!
Nutrisystem is clinically proven to work, helping you shed one to two pounds per week. But I have to admit it: For my first few days on the program, I was reluctant to believe that I would really lose any weight because the food was so filling and tasty—but it’s actually working! Since starting my plan, I’ve felt less stressed and can visibly see myself getting closer to my weight loss goal.
I’m so glad I finally took a chance on a weight loss plan from Nutrisystem. If you’re hesitant like I was, the Nutrisystem Uniquely Yours Max+ plan is definitely the way to go. It’s backed by a 14-day money back guarantee so there’s no reason not to give it a shot!
