We’ve been so busy enjoying our food and progress on Nutrisystem, that we hadn’t even noticed that there are some big-time myths and misconceptions floating around out there about the program.

I only discovered this because I was on YouTube today checking out some of the videos other people have done to show off their weight loss success stories and saw a new one called Nutrisystem Mythbusting. I guess the hubby and I are also Nutrisystem Mythbusters, since we’ve been living the program for over 4 months now and sharing weekly updates with you about our experiences!

Here are just some of the myths the video exposes:

Myth: You can’t enjoy the foods you love on Nutrisystem.
Truth: There are 150+ foods to choose from including pizza, pasta, cheesecake and more.

Myth: Nutrisystem food is too expensive
Truth: You can save over 25% versus eating on your own.

Myth: The people in Nutrisystem ads are paid actors.
Truth: The ads only feature people who have truly found weight loss success using Nutrisystem.

Myth: Nutrisystem doesn’t offer one-on-one counseling or support.
Truth: Nutrisystem has trained weight loss counselors, nutritionists and diabetes educators.
