Nutrisystem was born in the 70s in Philadelphia by a guy (Harold Katz) who opened weight loss centers inspired by the problems his mother was having losing weight. His concept was to make it easy for people to lose weight by preparing for them the meals and portions and have them just re-heating the food to eat it.
By balancing the calories and making sure even snacks would be included to prevent cravings, the person on the diet could focus on other things in their daily life and not be consumed by making sure their food intake was properly balanced.
The theory behind their method is to have an emphasis in foods with lean protein and carbohydrates with a low glycemic index.
Today the program has several variants, going from plans for men and women to plans for vegetarians and people with type 2 diabetes.
Their plans are divided in 4:
- Basic (starts at $8.57 per day)
- Uniquely Yours (starts at $10.36 per day)
- Uniquely Yours Ultimate (starts at $12.50 per day)
- Vegetarian (starts at $10.36 per day)
- Basic (starts at $10 per day)
- Uniquely Yours (starts at $11.79 per day)
- Uniquely Yours Ultimate (starts at $13.93 per day)
The plans have 3 meals per day and 1 snack per day for women and 2 snacks for men.
In either one of the plans, you can have the food chosen by you or have a Chef choose it for you.
You can personalize your meal choices based on your body type, goals and food preferences.
During the first week, you have to consume only the foods and shakes from the program, after the first week you will be able to incorporate to your diet a couple of meals of your choosing from either restaurants or you cooking them using ingredients you purchase at the grocery store.
Food will be regularly delivered to you. You will have the choice to subscribe to have it auto-delivered regularly.
