There have been times as a willing and supportive partner I've been subjected to more than a few diet plans. The first was the Cambridge Diet, an MLM company that consisted of a flavored powder you would mix with water or skim milk. This was a 70's era product that did work and tasted pretty good. During the 80's I was educated about SlimFast which is another shake type supplement in a can which was very convenient. Both of these plans were simply have a shake for breakfast and lunch then eat a sensible dinner. They worked but are not truly sustainable over the long term. In the 90's Nutrisystem was all the rage and rightly so since it was a complete meal package shipped to your door every month. My experience was with the meals and snacks that the Better Half did not necessarily enjoy. Their convenience in portion size and easy prep was its attraction for me. My goal with all of these plans was to lose between 10 to15 lbs. and they all fulfilled that need as expected. Nutrisystem has a long history now and if you're looking for no thought, convenient meals with variety it's worth a try. There is no plan that satisfies everyone's palate but if you're on a mission to lose weight there are plenty of resources out there to set your path. Check out this Nutrisystem review?
The flaw seen in all of the diet / nutrition packages today is that they're not geared toward families. Best suited for individuals to experiment with until a combination is found which is not only effective but also tastes good. For best results always add exercise to the mix!
