Nutrisystem Fresh Start Review
Nutrisystem Fresh Start part was introduced in 2019 as a diet starter and is gaining popularity. It’s more of a lifestyle changing stepping stone than a diet and we would like to see how and if it works, so let’s take a look:
What is Nutrisystem Fresh Start?
This program replaced Turbo 10 Program of 2018 and is designed to help people lose weight rapidly at the very beginning of their Nutrisystem journey. It is meant to jumpstart your weight loss and works right away. Seeing immediate results helps people desire to stay on the diet more than when there is no visible progress.
Fresh Start includes protein and probiotic shakes to keep you satisfied while pounds are falling off during the first week with the program. Jumpstart method is used for many other diets, so it’s not a new thing and it’s been proven to work.
How did Fresh Start started?
Nutrisystem experts realized that many people quit right at the beginning because they fail to see immediate results, and created this fast acting program. Those who stick to this plan from the beginning can get on a life-long journey of healthy lifestyle and put an end to yo-yo dieting.
Fresh Start is designed to wake your body up, shrink your gut size, curb your appetite, and get you ready for months of steady weight loss ahead of you. It’s kind of like a weight loss boot camp – short, effective, and motivating.

- Men can lose up to 18 pounds
- Protein and probiotics in Fresh Start shakes will flatten your abdomen and help with gut health

Does Nutrisystem Fresh Start work?
Individual results depend on the dieter and on his or her dedication. It has been proven that those who stick to Nutrisystem see results that surpass their own expectations. The Fresh Start is more like a lifestyle change and teaches followers healthy habits and portion control for the future.
Diets overall are short-term fixes for long-term problems and those plans that provide not only meals, but also behavioral support, work much better than sporadic diets with no support.
Fresh Start, as a part of Nutrisystem, offers counselling and many online tools to help you achieve your goals.
What are Fresh Start benefits and results?
First of all and most importantly, the biggest benefit is healthy diet and lifestyle change. Dieters get ready-to-eat food and don’t have to take time for planning, cooking, and calorie counting. Instead they can spend more time exercising and sleeping, which is also very important.
You can find ingredients of every meal on the package or on the website and select only what you like and what you are not allergic to. The only thing you will have to take care of is your own fresh produce to supplement Nutrisystem Fresh Start and the rest of the diet.
What plans are available for Nutrisystem?
Dieters are all different, so no one plan will work for everybody. This is why Nutrisystem offers plans for women, men, vegetarians, and diabetics. You can also select plans based on flexibility and budget.
What vegetables should you eat while on Fresh Start?
There are some vegetables included in Nutrisystem meals already, but it’s not enough. Everybody should eat at least 4 veggie servings per day and some fruit. Fresh produce has vitamins and minerals that are simply not found in Fresh Start meals, so supplementation is vital.
You should eat as much of asparagus, bell peppers, broccoli, carrots, lettuce, mushrooms, onions, tomatoes, and spinach as you can.

What do people say about Fresh Start?
People see the results, but those results don’t come easy. The first week of any life-changing diet is never breezy, and that is the main complaint. Customers don’t always like small portions, restrictive diet, and the overall change, but this challenge is what makes your body change its ways and get better.
Most negative reviews are about portion sizes and restrictive menu, so be ready for that if you are serious about losing weight. Our main complaint, however, is the taste of some meals that might be hard to get used to, especially if you normally make your own food and never buy frozen entrees form your grocer’s freezer section.
What are some Nutrisystem sign up special deals?
There are usually quite a few:
- 50% off sale, but this price applies only to the first order
- $249 special
- 40% off special, where all months will be 40% off
- Free shipping
- Free snacks and shakes
- You can stack two coupons
What are the chances that Fresh Start will work for you?
Nutrisystem has plenty of scientific research behind it and proof that works. It’s as simple as basic math – restriction of calories and balanced nutrition should result in weight loss. Unfortunately it only works if the dieter is following it without wavering.
So while you know it works, you also need to evaluate if it’ll fit your personality, lifestyle, and budget.
If you are busy, like structure, want to find a simple diet that would be easy to follow, and are ready for hundreds of microwavable meals, this will be your weight loss holy grail.
