The New Lifestyle Diet

Updated on July 11, 2011

Everyone has different goals when losing weight. It is important to choose a diet that closely matches the goals you've set. A little over four weeks ago I started a new weight loss journey and had to find a diet that fit my lifestyle. The New Lifestyle Diet ended up being my choice. It may be a good choice for you also. I'll introduce the type of diet it is, and how this company has helped me get started losing weight. With this information on this diet I hope you are able to make a better choice on if The New Lifestyle Diet is a good choice for you.

Liquid Diets

The New Lifestyle Diet is called a liquid diet. This means that primarily the food choices are shakes, and soups. Although there are some days when I downright miss food, being able to step away from food has been good for me. With The New Lifestyle Diet I eat 7 meals a day of soups, shakes, and bars, and one meal of 8 ounces of lean meat and 2 cups of green vegetables.

The Company

When I received my first order from The New Lifestyle Diet I was worried. The box of food seemed pretty small compared to boxes I had received from previous diet companies I'd tried. I opened up the box and there were; the boxes of mixes, a shaker, a water bottle, a book, a commitment bracelet, a letter, a guide, and a business card from my support coach.

All of a sudden my fear turned to excitement. I was impressed that I was automatically assigned a coach (I've had diets before that offered support but it was never that personal). I was also impressed by the book that came along. I'll admit, I'm a bit of a book nerd, so that was a big plus in my opinion (even if I had to search for space on my overflowing bookshelf). Even the yellow commitment bracelet was kind of impressive. I liked the thought behind it, and wore it for the first few days until I felt committed to not eating regular foods.

 

Why I Chose The New Lifestyle Diet

There are a few reasons I chose The New Lifestyle Diet.

1. It allows me to "step away" from food for awhile. Even though passing up well-cooked meals with well-meaning friends is hard, it's a chance for me to step back from food. I'm able to analyze the way I think and react to food choices. I'm able to make changes in my life that will allow me to keep the weight off once I've reached my goal weight.

2. It's economical. I was looking at The New Lifestyle Diet and other comparable liquid diets. The New Lifestyle Diet was the closest to my price range. They offer savings if you buy 4 weeks of product or 8 weeks of product.

3. The Liquid Diet Discussion Board. With purchasing the first month of product I received a free one year Gold Membership to the liquid diet discussion board. This has been an added bonus full of weight loss challenges and support.

4. No Autoship. I can tell you horror stories from other Weight Loss companies and autoships. Really, I don't want to get into all the details, but there have been times when I've clearly proven I've asked them to not ship me anymore product and they do. They charge me for it, and once I returned it, they never gave me a full refund. This company has no autoship. I order the product when I'm ready for it. That is such a relief.

5. Great Customer Service. I didn't realize this one when I first chose the program, but they've got great Customer Service. I looked up they are members of the Better Business Bureau and get good marks. They respond quickly to any inquiries I have. It's refreshing.

Choosing a diet plan to follow is important. A program that feels comfortable is needed so that you'll keep following it. I've listed the reasons why I chose The New Lifestyle Diet. I hope you find them helpful, and if you're wanting more information on the program be sure and explore the links below. Good luck with the weight loss!

      Interesting hub. I don't think I would like a liquid diet but I know people who use them periodically and are very successful. I talk a lot of medicine and it some things have to be taken with food, so I try to eat more of a vegetarian diet. Good Hub!

      Great Hub! But the real question is have you lost weight on this diet?

      Pamela, I didn't think I'd like a liquid diet neither...but it's kind of nice to "step away" from food. (Except when I get cravings-which has actually only happened a couple times)

      Ann, Thank You!

      TnFlash, I have lost weight...It's been 6 weeks, and I've lost about 15 pounds (More importantly yesterday I could take my jeans off without unbuttoning them!! Exciting!!)

      Is the sodium content very high in the soups?

      You know, I'm not sure...I get rid of the boxes when I get my supply and keep them in little containers in my cupboard. I will have a new shipment coming this week, so I'll let you know once I take a look.

      Are you still doing it and losing weight? I'm starting next week when my shipment arrives. I'm also going to blog about it on my website. I'd love to know how you're doing. It's been surprisingly hard to find any good feedback about NLD aside from their own forum.

      Interesting diet - I just bought a juicer and I know the benefits of drinking some meals firsthand - lower calorie and easily digested. I like your reason for 'stepping away' from food. It's like realizing that food is not the be all end all of life. :)

      You have a great article on the liquid diet put out by New Lifestyle Diet. As a Type 2 Diabetic, I worked with my Diabetes Medical Team (my self and 2 doctors)to see how this plan would work and I found success through weightloss and improvements in my overall being. The key to my success was the whole product line of New Lifestyle Diet.

      I believe that avoiding ready-made foods would be the first step to lose weight. They will taste fine, but processed foods currently have very little nutritional value, making you take in more simply to have enough vigor to get throughout the day. If you're constantly ingesting these foods, transitioning to whole grain products and other complex carbohydrates will assist you to have more electricity while eating less. Good blog post.
