I also joined a local gym and have a personal trainer which of course helps. The best part of the plan is that it comes with healthy foods that are already prepared for me to eat. I received a restaurant guide used it twice already and a menu book that includes approved foods you can use to supplement your menu at the grocery store. With the Nutrisystem plan I have not had to give up any of my usual great tasting foods. Maybe I'll need to start exercising after all. There are many other breakfast foods to choose from also. The food was just as tasty as pre-cooked frozen meals you buy in the grocery store.
I would say though, still, that this was probably the third most effective brand I've tried with regards to actual number of pounds lost. The most was with a brand called LipoVida -- but I literally wanted to vomit ever day that I took them.
Plus I heard that 80 HCA wasn't actually legal or possible (I'm not an attorney or a doctorscientist, so don't quote me on that - just passing along what I heard) The best so far for actual weight loss for me plus no nausea has been Pure GCE (I ordered mine through the site 'bestgarciniacambogiapills' dot com. Again, if you don't mind the jitters and all that jazz, it may be worth your time to check out the LipoVida brand.
Otherwise, Pure GCE gets my vote.
