The results of my research into the NutriMost weight-loss program were somewhat surprising. We at DietSpotlight conducted a thorough investigation, examining the ingredients, side effects, clinical studies and level of customer service. We also read dozens of user comments and responses that are posted online. At this point, we summarized and compressed all of the data we collected to give you the facts you need.

NutriMost can be purchased using their Official Site or through Amazon.

What is NutriMost?

First of all, the NutriMost diet is boasted as a wellness and weight-loss program for women and men of all ages. It’s a personalized plan intended to suit each individual and help them reach his or her goals/needs. It was created by Dr. Ray Wisniewski, PSc.D. This method involves:

  • Calorie Restriction [1]
  • All Natural Supplements
  • Lifestyle Changes

You can potentially drop 25-45 pounds. A team of medical professionals assist you with weekly consultations, healthy recipes, diet advice and personal supplementation.

The NutriMost weight-loss system has been around since at least 2007. This method is supposed to help you reset your metabolism and reduce food cravings. [2] There are some dieter testimonials posted on the official website. Also, there is a locator tool provided to help you find the nearest location (you enter your zip code), but read on…

High Price – “Is It Affordable?”

The first concern we have is the cost of this weight-loss program. According to our Research Editor, “Although the actual price of this diet system is not mentioned on the official website, several NutriMost reviews have revealed that this weight-loss program costs more than $1,000.”

One customer stated, “Buyer beware. If you are a person who needs to pay a bunch of quacks $1800 (or more if you finance) to put you on a diet consisting of 500 calories a day, then this is the program for you. 20-40 pounds in 40 days with no hunger? Sounds too good to be true, right? Well it is.”

However, a different person commented, “Many weight-loss programs actually cost thousands. So, NutriMost was not that expensive to me.”

Another posted, “If you can afford it, you can get some weight-loss results.”

BBB Rating – “Not the Best”

We noticed discouraging NutriMost reviews leading to a BBB rating of an “F” for some locations [3]. One dieter stated, “They want you to take a million and one pills. Who does that? I could do that without all the pills and the bills.”

But, a different person said, “My husband has maintained his weight-loss from this plan. It can work. But you should be aware of the NutriMost side effects. By this I mean hunger.” [4]

Although some reviews lead to a discouraging BBB rating, we found other positive reviews.

“I personally did the program, and it worked for me. There are definitely some supplements involved,” commented a dieter.

Another stated, “Be aware of the NutriMost ingredients in these products before getting started. Just in case you have any allergies to worry about.”

Our research shows a link between a reduction in long-term success and a discouraging BBB rating. There’s an issue if customers don’t have the highest impression of NutriMost.

The Science Behind NutriMost– “Is It There?”

We could not narrow down any specific clinical studies regarding the NutriMost weight-loss program. However, this diet system was created by a doctor, and it does involve calorie restriction. Therefore, it may help with weight reduction to some degree. Although some have seen success on this program, the cost could outweigh any potential benefits.

The Bottom Line – Does NutriMost Work?

So, should you spend your money on the NutriMost diet? Well, to begin, we appreciate that this weight-loss program was developed by a doctor. It’s also good to see that some testimonials are posted on the main website. But we have some doubts about this system because this company has an “F” BBB rating. Also, we’re definitely concerned about the fat price tag that applies.

If you’d really like to drop more weight, then we suggest you select a diet program or product that is supported by solid research, does not break your bank account and comes with excellent customer service.

Among the best products we’ve seen this year is our supplement called Burn HD. The formula contains a blend of four ingredients. All clinically-tested with research often seen in publications such as the Journal of Medicine and the journal Obesity.

Also, we’re so confident that you’ll love our supplement that we’re offering a 2-Week Sample, which is a great sign.

  • If you follow the plan, it works!
    Kim (Verified User)

    I’ve done very well on this life style change. I lost 28 pounds at the end of 40 days and continue to lose. I was not required to purchase their personal care products, I purchased those at local stores. The staff has always been very helpful and provides great pointers. I will admit the price is a bit steep but I’m very excited about the results thus far.

  •  Follow it and it works!!
    Barry (Verified User)

    I’m not sure why but I’m 71 and this is the 2nd time I’m on this diet since I lost 45 lbs on it 4 years ago. I’m now on it 8 days an lost 10 lbs. so far. I’m not hungry and I’m 240 lbs. My daughter lost 18 lbs in it years ago and my Son just started when I did and he is 6’3″ and also lost 10 lbs. in 8 days from 218 to 208 lbs.
    I know anyone who can eat 500-600 calories a day will loose weight but without the drops and capsules and pink salt each day I never have seen any diet work as well. Believe me I’ve been on all of them and if you add up the cost of many who sell you the food which tastes like hell this is worth every penny. The key to any weight loss though is still trying to keep it off for the rest if you life….? That’s the hard part.


    It is more food than I have ever eaten at 550 calories a day. If you are hungry, you aren’t following the plan. It’s easy, I feel amazing, and it teaches you how to feed YOUR body for life, not everyone else’s. Supplements/vitamins are unique to each individual. I only take 3. You can’t expect to go back to your old habits and maintain the weight loss.

  • Rosie

    The worse diet you can do !! not only is unhealthy because in order for you to lose the pounds you have to eat 500-700 calories a day, then drink a lot of selected water, also they make you buy their own soap, salt, lotion products because you are not allow to even paint your nails

    • Maribel (Editor)

      Hi Rosie, sorry that you didn’t like this diet. Other users have complained about the high price and other negative reviews similar to yours. Maybe you could check out other alternatives. Dietspotlight Burn is an interesting product that delivers results for a good price.

    • Tim

      I’ve been on the diet for 33 days and I’ve lost 21 lbs. I was only hungry for a small part of day 3 and I have not had to purchase anything from Ideal You (my Nutrimost provider). I bought all my personal care products from local stores or online.

      • Allie

        Can you tell me what stores?

        • Rachel Fowler

          I have purchased all my items from walmart, publix and wholefoods!


    I live on Long Island NY, is there a place here where I can purchase?

    • Anna (Editor)

      Hi Joanne! The closest Nutrimost location by Long Island, NY is their 2439 Grand Ave, Bellmore, New York location.

    • Cristina

      Please don’t do it, it is expensive, there is no scientific backing for it. If you want eat 500 calories per day in 2 lean proteins, 1 leafy green veg, 1 other veg (not starch), 2 fruits and all the coffee and tea you want and 64oz water, you will be in the same place but save $1,800 or more.

      • Dee

        You can’t do that without supplements…..yes you will starve yourself and be famished. The supplements somehow some way DO curb your appetite. No extreme hunger.

        • Ginny

          the amino acids in the drops are imperative for your brain as well.. or yes you’ll go into starvation mode!

  •  It's absolutely amazing, if you follow it to the letter
    Don Bindas (Verified User)

    I just started on it 3 days ago and I am down almost 15 pounds; although you have to factor the water retention loss into it.

    I was a little hungry the first day, but that was it.

    There are many facets to its overall success, but I really believe that knowing that you don’t get your money back up front, and its 40 days long and no more; it really inspires you to do it right!

    There are no re-runs for cheaters.

    I also think that the complainers didn’t follow the plan, but want their money back?

    Stay tuned….

  • Dee

    I have been on Nutrimost for almost 6 months I have been maintaining a weight loss of 30 lbs. Yes, it’s expensive….yes, it’s extremely strict but YES it works.

    I joined the one in Nanuet NY (Dr. Johnson is spectacular!) he truly cares about this program and helping you to succeed. He offers classes for free to learn about how the plan works on your metabolism. I am sure there are several other Drs. Who picked up the plan to sell from their offices without solid support or guidance…..and you will fail w/out the support. Dr. J has amazing staff (Lisa is a survivor and the program helped her stay healthy and she is one of the best supports there).

    If you decide to go for it…..you must make sure the office you join has support and really honestly knows the program. In addition, if you cheat you will not lose the weight.

  • Kali

    Since going through menopause, I’ve gained 15 pounds (and was about 10 lbs over what I wanted to begin with). I’ve watched what I eat most of my life and thought I’d try this as a last resort. Thought if I paid a lot of money I’d stick with it. I haven’t started yet, as I am waiting for a couple of the non-oil products.

    I researched this before I went and couldn’t find any reviews. I feel now that I’ve been duped, but there’s no turning back now. Already invested too much. I’m a pretty disciplined person, but since menopause feel like I have no control when it comes to eating. Hope this fixes that! I’ll report back but thanks to those who had encouragement.

    • Debbie


      I too am a post menopausal woman and have been on the diet for 6 days and have lost 10 pounds. I was only hungry day 2 and if you follow the plan exactly, you too will lose wait. My husband did it first (my guinea pig) and lost 27 pounds. I think he could have lost more if he didn’t cheat. Good luck to you!!!

  • Diane

    Did the program in February 2015. Took off 35 lbs & have kept it off for 2 full years. It taught me to know my body and what works for me. No packaged foods to buy–all healthy, natural items I can find at my grocery store. Doctor’s check up shows all numbers great: cholesterol and blood pressure down.

    Two years and only a cold; also a reduction in stomach issues I have always had. Like any program, you get as much as you put into it. If you’re willing to make it work for you, it will. Not a miracle cure. Worth every penny I paid and I would do it again in a heartbeat!

  • Cynthia

    I love this program! I have done 2 rounds of it. It’s helped me to eat cleaner, make wiser food choices and to be aware of ever bite I put in my mouth! It is costly, there are supplements for 40 days. But it was totally worth it to me! Thank you NutriMost Lenoir City, TN location!

  • Pellenga

    I’ve looked into this program and it’s a very expensive, unhealthy way to lose weight. I know a couple people that did it and lost the weight. One ended up getting sick because of malnutrition and the other has gained it all back in less than a year and then some.

    • Maribel (Editor)

      Hi Pellenga, you’re not the only one who feels this way. Might want to take a look at another option, Dietspotlight Burn might be a good fit, it burns fat, helps you lose weight and boosts energy (all for a decent price).

  • Tuna M.

    This program change my life, the best of the best. almost 42 lb lost

    • Sheri Bedford

      Hi stuns, I am 2 weeks in on the diet and have lost About 10 pounds! But I am starving all the time.

      • Sharon Laviguere

        You need to tell the doctor that you are hungry and they should adjust the program/supplements for you. I never felt hungry and I’m going on 3 yes maintaining my weight loss of 22 lbs.

  • Angela (Verified User)

    This program works if you really want to loose weight and not make excuses!
    I have been on this diet since the end of April 2017 and I have lost 136lbs. I feel amazing and better than I have in years. I have not been hungry or had any cravings since day 3. This has been the easiest diet I have ever done. They spell it out for you and if you follow it you will have success. Not only has it been easy but I have had a wonderful group of people working with me anytime day or night that I have a questions. The support is invaluable. I have never been on a diet that I have 24hours a day 7 days a week support. It was a lot of money but the health issues I was having before are gone and if I wouldn’t have done something I would have spent a lot more money with medical bills and medication than I have in the last 10 months on this diet. I have complete faith that now that I have been taught how to eat correctly then I should be able to maintain this forever as long as I want to eat correctly and work at it. There is only a small portion of the time that you are on 500-800 calories. There is a lot more time that you are at 2000 calories and eating healthy fats and oils along with protein, vegtables and fruit. Work the program and you will have success and learn a lot.

    NUTRIMOST is the best system I have tried. I was fat to 14 years; I didn’t qualify for weight loss surgery; this is a non surgical weight loss and I’m doing amazing. Love this product and I only take a few upementzccffg

    Marsha Biller (Verified User)

    Well, this worked for me after struggling for years and continuously gaining weight. Yes it is expensive and restricted calories..but I was NEVER hungry and lost 40 pounds in 40 days. It has been a year and a half and only recently gained 5 pounds from inactivity and holidays. You DO NOT need to exercise with the restricted part and slowly add things as the diet progresses. It is basically Paleo and you do HIIT exercise to maintain your weight. It resets your hormones and I no longer crave sugar or carbs. I eat carbs, but if I notice the ounces going up on the scale, I just cut back a bit.

  •  Nutrimost works
    Stephanie B (Verified User)

    If you really want to lose weight, safely while under medical supervision, while increasing your organ function, nutrimost will work for you, if your serious, and deticated. This is true for ANY program.

  •  So far so good!
    Leslie (Verified User)

    Lost 27lbs on the program, was never hungry and still am not. You do need to think about what you put in your mouth, I have cut down on carbs and I am going on month 7 since starting. I have lost an additional 13lbs and still slowly losing. Those who have gained it back went back to their old way of eating. I do eat some of those things I use to eat quite frequently, but now I count them in and don’t over do it and I am fine. So far so good!

    But yes, it is SUPER expensive and very inconsistent from office to office as far as price and information you are given. The whole you have to purchase our healthcare products in order for this to work, is a little overboard. I didn’t and was still successful, I guess it depends on the person – not sure. A lot of the suggestions I had to take with a grain of salt.

  •  It works if you work at it
    Phil (Verified User)

    My father, my sister and myself all did it. We all lost over 30 pounds and it is still off over a year later. It is not magic. You have to keep doing the right things after the 40 days. You have to put in the work. If you have self control and willpower it will work. It is like giving up any other bad habit you have to actually want to. If you don’t just save the money and go buy fast food.

  • lost 12 lbs

    I am an active 40 yo female. Stress increased my appetite, I couldn’t control my cravings and I gained weight. I lost 12 lbs & 3 months later I still weigh the same. I don’t feel like eating junk food or snack as much as I used to.

    It’s easy for me to keep it up b/c I don’t crave for unhealthy food anymore. And I just don’t want to eat as much as I used to. I don’t force myself.

    I have a degree in chemistry. I looked up every ingredient of the supplements I was not familiar with, and it’s nothing but amino acids and vitamins. I am full of energy

    • Kathy

      Hi Elena. Interesting that you have a degree in chemistry. Can you buy the amino acids and vitamins over the counter to ‘concoct’ your own formula perhaps?

  •  Changed my life!
    Amanda Cayler (Verified User)

    Changed my life – healthy and no more aches or pains.

  • H. D

    I can not begin to tell you how well this program works!! I’m a female and 52 years old. I lost 29 lbs. now weighing 137lbs. on the 40 day plan and have kept it off for 6 months now. In fact, I’m going back on the 20 day plan today because I’d like to lose an additional 10 lbs to get to a weight I haven’t seen in 20 years.

    Although, I would still be extremely happy if I never lost another pound!! I wish I could tell every person that struggles with their weight, about this plan. I definitely do tell all of those that have complimented me on how great they think I look, and ask how I did it. For me and the people I know that have gone through the Nutrimost program, it is worth every penny!!💃

  •  Madison (Verified User)

    $2000.00 on average. The program is identical to other diets out there (Lighten Up, Skinny Up, Thinfinity, etc). Same “apple days and steak days”, same food lists, phases, etc. The others are all less expensive!! The weight does come back on if you are not super careful – forever.

  • Cristina

    Don’t waste your money, this is a horrible product. You starve. I went in form my half way point and had lost 11 lbs but my fat % went up which means I lost muscle and water. The woman told me that in the first 20 days you lose all water, “everyone knows that, you lose the water first.” Its 1800 and horrible!!

    • Cindy

      I lost eleven pounds, and had to stop the diet because of all kinds of health issues from it. I was healthy, but my doctor said to lose about 25 pounds. The first week after losing a few pounds I woke up and couldn’t walk. That was a year and a half ago, ad I never fully recovered. I was 53 and very healthy and muscular. Now I have less muscle, and gained the weight back. I feel terrible. Before the diet I was able to run a 10K and do yoga. Now I feel like I have aged at least ten years. My skin looks worse from the diet, too.

  •  NutriMost - Bloomington, IN is the best!
    Jennifer (Verified User)

    NutriMost does work! It’s tailored for each individual and it’s every day food – no meals to buy like other plans. Monitored by a doctor who does care. I’m going to the NutriMost in Bloomington, IN and it’s fabulous. Great support and great results!
