Nutrisystem, similar to Jenny Craig and Weight Watchers, opened in the early 1980s as a company designed to help customers reach their weight loss goals. After opening with just a small number of storefronts, the popularity of the chain led to new stores opening in major cities all across the country. Noting that the number of online orders outweighed the number of orders made in stores, Nutrisystem decided to close its standalone stores in 1999 and focus primarily on online sales.
The company developed partnerships with several major retailers that allowed customers to buy products in other ways as well. Shoppers can now purchase items through QVC, at Walmart and at Kroger. The products available at Walmart and Kroger are snacks and breakfast items designed to help customers fill their stomachs and get the energy they need for busy days.
Nutrisystem offers several meal programs for dieters, including two different programs designed for diabetics and a separate program for vegetarians. There are also separate programs available for men and women. If you have limited dietary restrictions, you can opt for the Uniquely Yours program. This program lets you select the foods and meals you want from more than 150 different options.
As competition heated up with new diet programs hitting the market, Nutrisystem tried to remain ahead of the game with celebrity spokespeople who followed its diets and talked about their results. Though Marie Osmond is the most famous of its spokespeople, the company also worked with celebrities like Janet Jackson and Melissa Joan Hart.
Melissa Joan Hart was a child and teen star who appeared on shows like Clarissa Explains It All and Sabrina the Teenage Witch. In this video, Ambassador Melissa Joan Hart Showcases The Magic of Nutrisystem, Hart talks about losing 30 pounds following the diet program.
Though Nutrisystem primarily only offered meals during its early years, it later expanded into snacks and things users can eat outside of meals. You also have the option of combing the meal and snacks provided with foods you purchase on your own. The traditional Nutrisystem program gives you 60% of all the calories you need throughout the day and expects you to fill in the remaining calories with other healthy foods.You now have the option of buying a diet plan that sends you all the food you need every day for up to 28 days. The meals come packaged and almost ready to eat. Store the meals in your freezer or refrigerator and pop in the microwave before eating.
In addition to meals and snacks, Nutrisystem also offers online support for its dieters. Self-monitoring tools help you set your weight loss goals and keep you on track until you reach those goals. Counselors are also standing by both online and over the phone. Whether you need help getting over a weight loss plateau, motivating yourself to get active or with making healthy meal choices, you can reach a counselor over the phone, via email or through the company's online chat system.
Peer support is another tenant of the Nutrisystem system. Dieters of all ages and backgrounds from across the country can log into the website with their registered accounts to talk about their progress, goals and problems. This online aspect of the program is only open to paid members with an account.
