The nutrisystems program is a very effective and easy wey to lose weight. If you follow the meal plan as directed you will see the pounds and the inches start to come off rapidly. Like any other diet you have to get used to the foods and the portions. If I hadn't been overeating I wouldn't have needed this program to start with. The food is filling and you can add your own salads, fruits and vegetables according to the plan. There were foods that I really like and some that I didn't but that is true of any time you are eating. It teaches you portion control and how to eat the right combination of foods for a quicker weight loss. I will say it is expensive, but if like me you really need to do something about your weight and for your health it is worth it.
