At first I thought my gosh i'll starve on this but I tried this kit first to see if i could do it and i noticed as the days went by my hunger was gone and i peed like crazy so it has something that is to curb the appetite and some kind of duretic sorry for the miss spelled words i did get full with what i ate and you add some of your own groceries to this kit like low fat milk and low fat cottage cheese vegetables bagged lettuce and i wasn't munching on stuff during the day i ordered to more larger kits I start the turbo today.

I didn't weigh myself at the start i want to feel it come off when i put on my clothes not to be stuck looking at the scale i give it a yes but don't eat the items to close to each other only eat the one item from them it asks for and drink a lot of water after you eat even with the bars have one with a glass of water and it makes you move more you should see my ktichen..

Thanks for selling this product. Great weight loss kit. It's easy to follow and comes with all the information you need, including a shopping list. I lost weight on my first week. Jeanette, July 12, I already lost 4 pounds. I was not expecting much from the 5-day Nutrisystem box, however I was pleasantly surprised by my results. I completely forgot to measure to see how many inches I lose, but I definitely lost 4 pounds.

Definitely Worth the Buy. And the boxed kits I bought from the store have my favorite meals, so no food is wasted some of the not-so-great meals I got via the official program are still sitting in my pantry, uneaten. I still use Nutrisystem's "Numi" app, I'm still following the program, and I'm still losing weight. I would definitely recommend purchasing the food this way, unless you really need the extra hand-holding that Nutrisystems provides call-in and chat support, etc.

I didn't like the fact that every dinner had red sauce because it is not preferably what I like. But, other than that the food is delicious and very convienent for on-the-go meals. Allows you to realize what correct portion sizes should be.

Added banana, spinach and apple to chocolate shake. Nicecarpoorservice, January 18,
