Monti Found the Secret to a Healthy Life Through Nutrisystem

Disclosure: This could be a sponsored post or contain affiliate links (which means I earn a percentage of the sale), but all opinions are strictly my own.

Nutrisystem is one of the most popular weight loss plans, guaranteeing a permanent, healthy way of eating and living.  It is a learning experience on how to make healthier food choices for long-term results.  Once you place an order that meets your personal needs, you get full access to the Nutrisystem website that is full of tools to lead down the road to success.  You not only have access to a community of fellow members, you have a weight tracker, meal and menu ideas, tips on how to get discounts for subsequent orders, feedback on some of the best foods to order and personal customer service and support.  These were some of the amenities that lured Monti into giving Nutrisystem a try and change his life for the better.

Nutrisystem Review (1)

Monti Chose Nutrisystem For His Health

Monti was getting tired of feeling ill and fatigued.  At 5’8” and weighing 242 pounds, he was suffering with various medical issues, including (IBS) Irritable Bowel Syndrome.  He went on the Nutrisystem plan and stuck with it for six months with a weight loss of 50 pounds.   Taking the tools he learned on the program, Monti continued on his own, still losing weight and feeling great; no more ill feelings or IBS.  That was 20 years ago and to date, Monti is a healthy 169 pounds.  He states that weight loss was not always an easy road because he would gain a few pounds but he decided to re-join the Nutrisystem program temporarily to get back on track.  Monti did offer a few helpful tips; when having an occasional cocktail, use a diet drink as the mixer, eat smaller portions and have fresh fruits and cut up vegetables on hand at all times for those hungry urges.


Consider The Advantages and Disadvantages of Nutrisystem

If you are considering a weight loss success like that of Monti, look into the possible advantages and disadvantages of the Nutrisystem program.  What works for one person may not work for another.  Weight loss and your option to do so is a personal choice.  The advantages and pros of Nutrisystem are:

  • They offer you a variety of prepackaged foods geared towards your plan and needs. You can choose member favorites or customize your meals to your liking.
  • The plan is convenient without need to weigh and measure anything.  Just microwave or boil your meals as directed and serve with a choice of a side vegetable and/or fruit for a complete menu.
  • Most members love the personal customer service and support received at Nutrisystem. Counseling services are available 24/7 for true success when you need it.
  • You are provided a guide to appropriate exercise and physical fitness necessary for the best and optimum weight loss, designed to your needs.

Along with the pros or advantages, there are always a few disadvantages or cons to consider such as:

  • The cost is the biggest con for most people, especially those on a budget.  Although it may seem costly, go to http://www.weightlosstriumph.com/nutrisystem-healthy-meals-delivered-to-your-door.html to find various Nutrisystem discounts and coupons to help make the plan more affordable. Choosing auto-delivery is always a way to a lower cost plan as well.
  • Nutrisystem does not meet the needs of a family; if you are on the plan, you will have to still cook for your family, which is also additional cost; something to consider.
  • It may be difficult to maintain your new weight once you stop the program.  It is important to learn maintenance while on the program along with all the other tips you learned such as food choices and portion control.  This program is best used as a precursor to a new way of life, losing weight and gaining tools along the way that you can use when on your own.  Remember to gain the encouragement of friends and family for their support for long-term success.

I love playdates at the park.  I love working part-time from my home.  I love staying up way too late finishing a great book.  I love working with the young men and young women from our church.  I love Blue’s Clues, Handy Manny, Dinosaur Train, Downton Abbey, and Gilmore Girls.  I love a mid-morning run to Chick-Fil-A with my little boys, lunch at Panera Bread with some close friends, and a classy date to Bistro 29 with my husband.  I love being a mom, a wife, a sister, a daughter, a friend, an instructor, a reviewer/giveaway-er, and an avid reader.

I’m sure that many of you can relate to these feelings — straddling the many lines, spinning all the plates, and juggling all the balls that encompass womanhood.  It can be exciting and exhilarating and exhausting all at the same time; there are days that run together from monotony, while others fly by as you run from errand to errand.  This fun monthly surprise box from Mommébox, though, appeals to all women and the roles they play.


Mommébox is a great new way to get inspired, learn about new products and take a break from all the demands of being a mom. We partnered with companies who believe in celebrating motherhood and pooled together beauty, wellness, educational and lifestyle products that will fill every month of pregnancy and motherhood with a delightful surprise. One box might be focused on ways to amplify your beauty, another box might be focused on the home or education products and/or taking care of your significant other. Every month brings a new surprise!”

I was excited to have a chance to review the December 2012 and January 2013 boxes from Mommébox— there are lots of fun products and coupons for new items.  Between the two boxes, I received natural laundry detergent Vaska, full size lip gloss and eyeliner from Kryolan, Kelapo Coconut Oil, and (my personal favorite!) Mr. Cleengreen’s Handy Essentials hand cleanser.



Each 2013 Mommébox will feature themes such as Share the Love for February, Summer Beauty and Fun for July, and Give Thanks for November.

Mommébox offers the following billing options for boxes:

  • $20 for one month (Will not renew after one month)
  • $15 per month for 4 months or more (Initial payment of $15 and you are charged $15 per month thereafter). After the 4th month we will bill you $15 per month until you cancel)

Cancel anytime! If you don’t want next month’s box, simply cancel by the end of the month (applicable after the 4th box on the monthly subscription).
