What Health Care Professionals Say About the Nutrisystem diet
Experts support the diet, but are leery due to the reliance on a scheduled meal plan. The worry is that dieters will not stick with the plan after the plan.
"Dieters may only experience success while they are ordering the prepackaged foods because once they are on their own, they are faced with the real world of cooking, meal preparation, and issues they are not prepared to handle because they were not addressed on the plan," says American Dietetic Association spokeswoman Suzanne Farrell, MS, RD.
