Clinical Study Finds NutriSystem Meal Plan Effective For Weight and Fat Loss Two-year clinical trial finds success using the Nutri/System Portion-Controlled Meal Plan for obese postmenopausal women.
Obese postmenopausal women who used the NutriSystem Meal Plan for 16 weeks lost approximately 21 pounds or 10.7 percent of their body weight according to a recently published clinical study.
Approximately 78 percent of the weight lost while on the NutriSystem Meal Plan was from body fat stores.
During a two-year follow-up period, the women maintained 35 percent of their initial weight loss, despite not receiving any weight loss intervention during that time.
This study, funded in part by the National Institutes of Health and NutriSystem (Nasdaq:THIN) was published in the July 2000 issue of the American Journal of Physiology, Endocrinology and Metabolism.
A group of 14 obese postmenopausal women followed the 1200-calorie, portion-controlled NutriSystem Meal Plan for 16 weeks without any negative effects on bone mass, lean body mass or general health.
“The risk of developing chronic diseases with aging is a major concern for postmenopausal women, however this study shows that the elderly can achieve a healthy weight loss using portion control with a nutritionally sound diet,” said Steven B. Heymsfield, M.D. a deputy director of the Obesity Research Center at St. Luke’s/Roosevelt Hospital and a co-author of the study.
According to one study participant and New York area resident Elsie Hayrabedian, "I was worried about losing weight safely at my age, however I learned that proper portion control was key to my safe weight loss. It has been four years now and I am still 15 pounds lighter and a lot healthier."
“As one of the most recognized names in weight loss for the past 30 years, NutriSystem will continue to provide support for clinical research that helps educate consumers on healthy ways to lose weight,” said Joseph J. DiBartolomeo, Ph.D., vice president of scientific affairs for Nutri/System.

Before that question can be
answered, we have to understand what ‘juice fasting’ is about.
Juice fasting is about abstaining
from solid food, for a period of time, while supplying your body with the most
nutritious drinks on this planet. By providing essential vitamins and minerals,
the juice can actually jump-start the body’s fat-burning mechanisms. One glass
of freshly-made fruit or vegetable juice provides you with the equivalent
vitamins, minerals, enzymes, amino acids and chlorophyll you would get by eating
several pounds of raw fruits and vegetables.
Most of us have heard how thousands
are losing up to 10 pounds in 2 days on the best-selling Hollywood 48-Hour
Miracle Diet in which you simply juice fast on bottled (dead) juice for 2
days. Well, juice fasting is a healthier version of the Hollywood Diet because
you can fast longer than 2 days while supplying your body with live enzymes and
nutrient-rich fresh fruit and vegetable juices.
Dr. Shelton, a great advocate of
fasting, wrote "The weight lost by overweight patients in the early
days of a fast is astounding. I have seen losses of five and six pounds a day
for the first few days. A woman who fasted in the Health School in January and
February of 1950 lost twenty-five pounds in the first two weeks.
