“The only thing you have to lose is the weight!”Article posted in: Success Stories - Men
Young men can be notoriously bad about planning their meals—and that was no different for Josh L. Some don’t shop until the fridge is empty, and they are desperate. Some grab whatever they can. Others wind up eating straight out of the can over the sink. Making a lifestyle change and reaching weight loss goals seemed pretty grim for Josh.
Josh didn’t like grocery shopping and ate a lot of takeout—and it showed. But then Josh made the decision to try something new and unfamiliar. He gave Nutrisystem a try, and it was perfect for his lifestyle: He didn’t have to plan for his diet and didn’t have to shop.
“I eliminated meal planning and lost weight at the same time! Pretty awesome,” he says. “I loved my limited trips to the grocery store. Having everything delivered—and always available—was amazing.”
Josh cut out pizza delivery and replaced it with stuffed chicken breasts—his favorite—and eschewed the morning drive-thru for Cinnamon Streusel Muffins. Doing so didn’t just save him time, he says it saved him money: “When you cut out ordering pizza, tips, junk food … I spent less on Nutrisystem than on my old eating habits.”
It may have saved his life, too: He needed to lose weight. Before Nutrisystem, Josh was pre-diabetic, with sky-high cholesterol levels and a fatty liver.
Since starting Nutrisystem, Josh lost 105 pounds.* His health has improved. His breathing is better. His complexion has gotten better. He even got six other things he always wanted: Abs!
“I’m healthier than I’ve ever been in my life. I can walk, exercise and take the stairs at work without getting winded—it’s amazing,” he says. “Nutrisystem is hands down the best thing I have ever done for myself and my health. I can’t recommend it enough!”
Josh’s final words of weight loss inspiration to friends who ask about reaching weight loss goals: “Try Nutrisystem! The only thing you have to do is lose the weight!”
