A DBSA support group member mentioned that he'd used Nutrisystem to successfully take off and keep off 40 pounds of weight he gained since starting invega sustenna.  Anyone else have any experiences with it?  Pros or cons?

I have a friend on Nutrisystem who has so far lost 25 lbs, and wants to lose another 25.....So I know at least one person who has had success losing weight on it.

He says the portion sizes are pretty small though.

I have not tried it, so I cannot give any first-hand accounts.   I am a skeptical person; I research the hell out of everything:

Take a look around at reviews.  I see lots of complaints about taste, quality, and price.  Also, there is some concern with the auto delivery and fees and penalties for terminating.  Lastly, there's the consideration of what will happen after you hit your target - will you stay on Nutrisystem forever, or have you developed the eating habits and lifestyle to maintain your preferred weight?

Thank you both.  Interesting to hear another success story.  I share the concern about sustainability.  I’m also trying to get more adept at cooking (though not doing a great job of it), so maybe it’s not a good match.  I didn’t realize it entailed so much processed stuff.
