*Real Success story. Weight lost on prior
program. Expect to lose 1-2 lbs. per week.

"I tried all different things;intense workouts, cleanses, a weight loss program that has motivational meetings. Nothing worked. Then I tried Nutrisystem."

Edouard knew he had a weight problem but it didn't fully register until he was out on a date at a water park. His then-girlfriend and he decided to try the water slide. Only problem was that, together, they exceeded the weight requirement. That happened multiple times during their afternoon, and boy, was he embarrassed. Edouard knew it wasn't her weight that was preventing them from fully enjoying the water park. It was his, and his alone. It was time for action.

Right from the beginning, Edouard knew he found the perfect program. A bachelor, Edouard's not much of a cook but can microwave just about anything. And as a busy engineer, he doesn't have a lot of free time on his hands. The convenience of having meals sent directly to his home, all perfectly portioned, took another worry off his plate.

“It was so easy. Nutrisystem taught me what to eat, how frequently to eat, what the right sized portions were and how to keep the weight off.”

“All I had to do is commit to the program”, Edouard goes on, “just like my favorite philosopher Jean Paul Sarte said. `Commitment is an act, not a word.'”

A practical man, Edouard also appreciated the fact that being on Nutrisystem actually lowered his food costs. Plus, with its money back guarantee, there was no risk involved. He began recording what he ate and watched the weight come off. His favorite memory? When a pair of pants he was wearing literally fell off. Now, he dresses almost exclusively in slim-fit jeans, something that wasn't possible when he began the program. And the compliments just keep rolling in.

“I ran into an old friend who I hadn't seen in some time.”

Edouard breaks into a grin. “We spent the entire time talking about all the weight I lost” and I felt great when he said, 'You look better than you did when you were younger.'”
