I drink fresh milk, but I like to use stronger milk as a sweetener. How about you take some responsibility about the matter? I enjoyed how this diet actually taught me how to eat healthy. I am 40 and never heard of it till my daughter had soy sensativities! Normal intake of soy is about 25 grams, but as I get older and my natural ability to produce T decreases, I have reduced the amount of soy intake.

Nutrisystem Turbo 13 and Turbo Takeoff Week

The portion-controlled diet program is very simple and easy to follow. Nutrisystem program has several plans as listed below. All plans comes with Turbo 13 kit which is the latest addition for Nutrisystem plans for women has three sub plans namely Basic, Core and Uniquely Yours.

In basic plan, foods are preselected for you. In Core plan, you can choose your own food and you also have free access to dietitians and counselors.

You also get free access to dietitians and counselors. Fitness and nutritional needs vary for both men and women. Considering this fact, NutriSystem has designed individual plans for men and women separately. This helps the men in losing weight healthily without facing those hunger pangs. This is a specially designed plan for vegetarians. All the meals and snacks of this plan include good carbohydrates and protein. I was lied to and that is unjust. I requested a full refund and cancellation, how dare they say I did not go in periodically as requested and I returned their products unopened.

I was not allowed to start until I gave them my money. Once I finally did, I found out all the lies I was told and how I was taken advantage of! I am the victim of discrimination against the overweight. Because of my condition this company is attempting to steal my money and defame my character.

I received an offer for weight loss supplements when I ordered a piece of exercise equipment. I noticed that my debit card has been charged for I have contacted my bank to stop further payments to this company.

I also went to a quick weight loss center and they tried to bully me into signing their papers. I had been warned by a friend beforehand so I knew what to expect. When I made my appointment over the phone, I explained that I only wanted information on their program as I was also checking out other programs in the area. They seemed to understand and wanted me to come in. They gave me the usual talk up about how their program is great and I could lose my weight with them.

They seemed lost when I asked questions about the weekly cost of supplements and protein they need me to take to "guarantee" the weight loss. Then the nice lady went to 'ask' her manager about lowering the price. She had asked that if the program was free would I sign up Then in came the no-so-nice lady Then, to herself she said, "Don't you make your own money? I wouldn't want my husband to spend that kind of money without talking to me first.

Then she told me that money wasn't the issue. I didn't know she worked at my bank and paid my bills! And that mentally I wasn't ready to loose the weight. She also said, "Obesity is a disease of procrastination. Then she wanted me to hurry home and talk to him so I could call by 7pm and give them my credit card number over the phone. After 7pm the "great deal" they were giving me would no longer be valid. I could definitly see how they take advantage of people in a weak moment. I'm not a person who can be bullied but they don't know me and I had been told about the pressure sale before I went.

They're criminal to prey on people that way. I would never suggest even stepping foot in that place! Jovigirl53 Oh how I wish I had looked into reviews before I went there. They never even asked to be in touch with my doctor first. I got very sick on their diet and they did not care one bit.

I even returned all the unopened boxes of everything. They said we cannot take this back but as soon as I said I will donate to whoever wants it because I cannot use it. They grabbed those bags so fast I could not believe it.

But they kept all my money and it was over And it was not even a full 2 weeks I was with them. I am older and just trusted them. I would tell everyone not to go to any of their places. I joined Quick Weight Loss Center years ago.

I lost 80 LBs in 16 weeks. I am a member on the maintenance plan. The maintenance plan helps you keep the weight off. I had dental surgery and was away from the center for a year and gained a lot of weight back My membership was still active, I did have to purchase extra weeks but they gave me a great deal and all I needed were some of the products.

I am lossing now. This program is difficult at first but when you get into the swing of things When I went back in, I talked with a guy that had lost weight then got off the program and gained it back so he went and got the gastric band. He had the band removed and came back to QWLC because he knew it worked for him.

They will tell you exactly what to do and will stick with you through it. You will be weighed and measured two to three times a week and have your blood pressure taken.

I speak with lots of other members, some have gotten off injections for diabetes. Many other people on the plan that I have talked to have had medical conditions that have dissapated or at the very least have become more controllable. The person that said how happy they are with the program must be an employee.

I don't think it is a real commit. I went in for my"30"minute app. I too didn't get a direct answer about how much per month this would cost. They do have papers you sign about the products being non-refundable, but when I signed it I didn't realize that was what I was sighning. They are very sneaky that way. If their plan is so good and works so well why don't they stand behind thier products with a money back guarantee if you aren't satisfied.

I too feel like I have been ripped off. THey make sure they are covered, but you are left out standing in the rain holding All your products. They made me feel like I had to spend all this money on their products for the plan, so I said yes, with tears in my eyes because it was SO much money but they said I would loose the weight if I did the plan exactly, which I was prepared to do because I wanted to loose the weight.

The products made me feel very jittery and then I would feel low. It is so restrictive I felt like I was in food prison and that is the last thing someone who is overweight wants to feel. Like they have been cheated, because that just makes you want to eat more! Now I have a cabinet full of stuff I can't use and I am so frustrated!!

I will give you a really good deal I promise, right after you sign something for me. Anyway I have talked to corporate a few times and they just go on and on about how good thier plan is. She even told me I must be sick if the products were making me feel bad. She asked where I buy my vitaimins and mega 3 fish oil and when I told her Wal-Mart she went off on a tangent about how she wouldn't buy ANTHING like that from Wal-Mart and that it was probably their stuff that was making me feel bad, even though I have been taking them for several years now and I've been fine until I started taking their products.

I got so frustrated and stressed talking with her I said I wanted to talk to her boss and she said she would have her call me and I am still waiting here for her call. I can't do this plan it is so hard and they don't tell you this up front. Anyway PLease if you are thinking about this plan be careful very careful before you join. It is tremendously expensive and if it doens't work for you, you are stuck big time.

They hit you with the hard stuff after you have paid. Especially if they are vague about explaining things which they are. I feel pretty dumb right now and broke, and hungry!!

Well, they say you learn something everyday and I have met my qutoa for the year!! Believe it or not it works, just not as fast as they claim. She loses around 1 pound a week.

The good news, my wife has lost 30 Lbs since joining. I have been doing QWL for 14 weeks and am down 52 pounds with 18 more to go. Yes, the supplements and office visits are required but if you know how to use a search engine you can find the exact same products elsewhere for a lot less. But, I feel it has been worth it. The food outside of the suppliments is easy, but limited.

You cam be creative with everything you're allowed to eat but i just stick to a daily meal plan that works for me. I don't really eat the daily fruit that i'm allowed because it seems counter -intuitive. The problem I think that the OP had was that when it says 8oz of grilled chicken, then you only eat 8oz! Portion control folks, portion control.

If you can't lose weight on this program by yourself then you need to see a doctor because there is something else wrong. I believe that almost every diet you go on and stick to you will lose weight.

Anyone with an overweight problem has been there and done that. This diet is the worst one with false advertising that i have ever seen. Well I have faithfully followed this diet and yes I have lost weight however, i lost 11 pounds in 10 weeks, that is not pounds?

The centers put you down and blame everything on you. The diet is expensive and works better for men and very overweight people. When you walk into the center it has a chalk board with the biggest weight losses each week, down 18, down 10, down 6 etc.

The center knew I wanted to loose 19 pounds and they said oh yes, 10 weeks, well they will try and get me for the extra money but i will not fall for their tricks. Go to weight watchers if you want a nice slow weight loss. They are mean and make you feel bad. Buyer beware you have to buy their supplements but can purchase them on other web sites cheaper. If you do purchase them elsewhere you have broken the contract and when your time is over they will not help you I had 70 lbs.

After losing only 10 pounds in 3 weeks, which i thought was fine, my "counselors" kept insisting i must be cheating, and i was not! I had to explain to them that being female and post-menopausal was going to make it slower for me. I had to explain this to them? They are not professionals, not even intelligent or compassionate. Even though my counselor said she was a nurse!

I paid top dollar for their program, but watched while the counselors all woman would fawn all over the male clientele. Their so-called pep talks to me made me feel worse about myself. I guess i wasn't losing the weight quickly enough for them. I walked away from their over-priced, over-hyped program. And notice their spokespeople who have been through their program are all male and are given a much reduced in price or free program.

Just because you don't have the resources of a celebrity, you shouldn't assume that you will fail at a diet or weight loss program. However, don't be lured into a specific program by the face of a celebrity.

Be sure to review the program to determine whether it will fit with your lifestyle and budget. You might believe that Dan Marino is the greatest quarterback in the history of the NFL, or you might have every album that Queen Latifah ever made. However, these should not be the reasons you select a weight loss program. Research the various weight loss plans and talk to your doctor about which of those diets will work best for you.
