(Last Updated on November 29, 2022)
I have been fascinated by the Nutrimost nutritional weight loss program claims, and had read a lot of Nutrimost reviews that were saying how fantastic it was, with people losing as much as 45 pounds in weight.
Marketed as a weight loss and wellness program, it’s apparently suitable for men and women, of all ages.
It’s actually a personalized plan, rather than an off-the-shelf supplement.
That made it interesting, and slightly different to the usual pills and potions sold.
It’s been around since 2007, and the claims made about it are quite significant.
On top of that, the company who make it, NextLevel Health Cooperative, state that Nutrimost analyze 3000 biological markers in the body to create each individual weight loss plan.
With it sounding so fantastic, I thought that it was time to undertake a detailed Nutrimost review to see how individual and effective it really is.
Nutrimost Weight Loss Formula: What Is It?
You’re probably wondering what the Nutrimost weight loss formula actually is to make it sound so impressive.
Unfortunately it’s not actually as impressive as it sounds as far as I’m concerned.
Basically an analysis is done on you to get a targeted Nutrimost program for you as an individual.
Although that sounds high-tech and targeted, it basically boils down to you getting a diet plan that allegedly suits you, along with tips and advice.
But at the root of it, it’s simply a very low calorie diet.
Between 500 and 700 cal per day, and then you take supplements provided by the company.
In this respect, it’s a similar concept to the unproven and widely denounced HCG diet, where you use injections of HCG along with a 500 cal daily diet.
The bottom line is anybody who’s eating so little food is going to lose weight, even if the body does go into starvation mode, especially initially through water loss.
The difference with the Nutrimost diet plan is a selling point that it’s a diet that targets you, and then is topped up with supplements rather than injections.
Does Nutrimost Work?
With any type of diet plan or supplement, the big question is how much weight you can lose.
So the obvious question I’m wondering is does Nutrimost work?
And I have say that I am skeptical based on what I’m reading about it.
Yes you are going to lose weight.
But it’s inevitable in the short term with the low calorie intake.
The targeted diet plan you get is based on something called NRF technology, which stands for Nutrimost Resonant Frequency.
Stimuli are sent into your body, to look at the skin response.
From this apparently they are able to determine the unique biomarkers to see where in the body there may be imbalance and weakness.
Now that sounds fantastic, but what does that actually mean in reality for losing weight?
I’m not convinced that it can really help that much.
You then receive a targeted 500 to 700 per day calorie food program, based around whole organic food.
So you are not eating rubbish, but it’s obviously about a quarter of what most people would usually eat.
I think what makes me skeptical the most is that your personalized Nutrimost diet plan claims to target fat, specifically in difficult to remove areas.
I’m afraid I just don’t believe this, it doesn’t matter what types of food you eat, or what supplements you take, you can’t choose where to lose weight on your body other than through direct surgical intervention.
Is Nutrimost A Scam?
I’m not going to say it’s a Nutrimost scam, but I am going to question some of the huge claims:
- Can reset metabolism.
- Can reset weight starting setpoint.
- Eliminates all hunger cravings.
- Doctor supervised.
- Lose up to 30 pounds in 40 days.
- Target where you lose weight.
I think anyone thinking of trying this weight loss formula probably needs to look at those claims and ask themselves how any calorie controlled diet backed up only by expensive proprietary supplements which claim to support the diet, but which appear to just basically be vitamin tablets, can do all that.
One great way to get to the heart of how good any diet plan or supplement is, I find is always to look at user reviews with an open mind.
So I took a look at reviews from people who seem genuine, and generally it was incredibly disheartening:
“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.”
There were lots of comments like that, but then some more positive comments about weight loss, but not effortlessly:
“I am 2 weeks in on the diet and have lost About 10 pounds! But I am starving all the time . Does it ever get better”
And there are positive reviews, but I did find most of them seemed incredibly long and detailed, and some definitely suspicious:
“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. I felt great during the program and continue to feel amazing with my new/old skinny body.
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…”
So What Are The Pros & Cons Of Nutrimost?
When it comes to the Pros of Nutrimost, I see them as:
- If you stick at it you will lose weight because of the low calorie count.
- The supplements will benefit your body as they seem to be vitamins and amino acids.
- You do get to speak to a Doctor and be analyzed.
But for me the cons of Nutrimost far outweigh the benefits:
- It costs $1800 per cycle.
- No diet can target areas of your body to lose fat from.
- It will make you hideously hungry, and no vitamin supplement is going to stop that.
- Initial dramatic weight loss will mostly be water loss.
How Much Does Nutrimost Cost And Where To Buy It?
You can only buy Nutrimost by signing up on their official website.
You are then allocated to a regional center, where you make an appointment and deal with that center specifically.
So it is basically a franchise, much like Weight Watchers.
As I said, the cost of Nutrimost is around $1800 per cycle.
From what I can understand, that does not include the cost of the supplements.
So it costs quite a lot of money, and you have to have a franchise Doctor in your area.
Nutrimost Money Back Guarantee & Refund Policy
The brand does not offer any details on refunds on any of their supplements, products or programs.
It does not seem like they offer their customers a money-back guarantee and, considering the fact that many people have claimed their program to be quite expensive, this might be a negative factor to consider for many interested individuals.
Nutrimost Review: Conclusions
I can’t find much positive to say about this diet plan I’m afraid.
It’s incredibly expensive and the claims it makes about how it can target how you lose weight just seems impossible, and there is no verification of any of the claims from any scientific studies I can find.
It was created by a doctor, but when he states things like this:
“God created us with such an awesome, awe inspiring power within us that can heal us from any condition known to man…”
Well, I kind of lost interest in the claims made about his diet straight after reading that.

It does include the supplements and this diet works like a charm. i lost 43 lbs in 80 days and felt like a new person. I was not hungry as you are drinking alot of water and after the first week you settle into the routine. For me, it’s great!
How is the maintenance program? Most people can get the weight off, but have a very difficult time maintaining the weight loss.
Does this work for type one diabetics? On omni pod that gives insulin every hour?? Plus on third shift?
I’ve been on the nutrimost program for 21 days and I have lost 10 Do the math ……close to .5 pounds every day I’m not hungry as long as I drink my stevia flavored water… just like any other diet it is his mind over matter— however I am NOT hungry —I am focused… The reason I started the diet was I needed to lose 20 pounds and I have Suffered withsevere eczema on and off my entire life but mostly over the last three years of my life — my eczema has cleared 95%! For me this is a digestive/intestinal cleanse. 20 more days and 10 more pounds and I will be very happy!
What is the point to pay so much money to be told to go on 500 calorie intake diet. Of course if you will lose weight when you get rid of bad fats, carbs, and sugars from your diet. Don’t be that naive, people.
THIS DOES NOT WORK…LOOK UP Intermittent fasting…This is a loose form of that, but it costs you a ridiculous amount of money… I know first hand this “diet” is all about the advertising, it doesnt work at its core. Sure, people are loosing weight with a fancy tech app they provide, however, it is very unhealthy. I will make a bet with you. eat 1,000 calories a day for 30 days, drink 8 cups of water each day, and I promise you, you will loose weight. And this is an easier option than Nutrimost. They do not want you to eat at all, but they want all of your money, while the “CEO”, who is not scientist, gets all of your money, so he and his wife can go out and eat. Eat, something he is telling you not to do.
How do you know it does not work – did you do it? Is there anyone who has done it who can say it does ot work? Would be good to know.
I have done the Nutrimost program. I lost 44 lbs in the first 40 days. Then did the maintenance plan as required. Caloric intake went up to 2200 calories a day and didn’t gain again. I work out like crazy and wasn’t allowed to on the plan. My energy levels spiked. I stopped snoring and lost my sleep apnea. I did another 40 day plan and lost 27 more lbs. I cheated 4x the first 40 days and cheated about 25x the second 40 days. But lost about 8 inches on my waist. And went from a size 54 chest to a 42/44. I’m a 43 year old male and besides my own devious devices it doesn’t seem like the weight is coming back. I’ve gained 5-15 lbs back but then lost it again because the program teaches you how to drop the weight. How to eat. When to eat. It’s not easy. But coming worth doing ever is. If you decide to do the program you have to commit to it. Once the program is done don’t be lazy. Work out
Yep, I done it too & agree with all you said! People think this is a joke, but out of all the programs I’ve tried over the years, this is the only 1 that has actually worked! I did not starve & it did boost my metabolism. It was worth every dollar!!
I did the program 3 years ago. I initially lost 23 pounds then another 12 after it ended. It has been 3 years and old habits have crept back in (sugar/carb addiction!) but I have managed to maintain a 25 pound weight loss. It was life changing. I got off 2 medications and I would recommend it. Each franchise is run independently so experiences will vary but with mine, the daily and weekly check-ins were incredibly helpful to keep me on track. It is only for a short period to detox your system and train yourself to eat differently. I did not cheat. That is key.
I have to say that if you have the money and you like the clinic staff (they are all vary) and need the support, go for it. I found it be a combination of intermittent fasting, very low calorie diet and healthy foods. Their supplements helped some swelling issues I had. In fact, so much so that when I traveled and quit taking the Curcumin (sp?) liquid in my water, the edema issue returned and then subsided when I returned and was back to taking it. You get texts daily that are inspirational and you text your weight. All of it helps you focus on weight loss. Also, you will find yourself eating foods and a variety that maybe you hadn’t before. I believe that helps in the weight loss too. Granted, though, it’s expensive. If you can locate quality supplements, do your own intermittent fasting mixed with a low calorie diet, you could do this on your own. I liked it. It helped me. I felt it was sound science too: Intermittent fasting, getting plenty of sleep, eating real food. It’s all important. That’s my 2 cents. I lost 20 in the first round and 50 all together and keep the lifestyle to this day with a few cheats.
You probably should try the diet before commenting on it. I see you did try to be objective, but your logic is flawed (based on previous information, not the plan – but how would you know, you didn’t try it?) and your comments are biased. I am 50 years old and lost 73 lbs in two rounds, and have kept it off for more than two years. Like any exercise, health, or eating plan – you must follow the pricinciples learned for your own body in order for it to continue working. Worth every penny and then some (btw, your cost of the program is incorrect as well). Do better research.
As someone looking to decide if I want to do this diet I do find the analysis flawed. The author is taking a guess on what it is about but has not done it so does not really know.
I have done over a dozen of diets and while I lost the weight, as soon as I was off the diet, it crept backed. Three years ago I did Nutrimost for the first time and the results were simply amazing. Lost almost 30 pounds and kept them off until just 5 months ago when I gained 8 pounds. I am redoing the plan (20 days only) because I want to lose 14 to 15 more and I have no doubt that I will. After the program ended I ate everything my heart desired, but for some reason I lost cravings for sweets, so it was easy to follow a healthy life style. Never in my life I felt healthier than when I finished the program, I was hydrated, high energy, no swelling or pains. I am no doctor, so can’t say if this is for everybody, but I can say that for me it was a blessing.
Thank you for saving me $1800 bucks. I already work out 4x a week and make healthy food choices. I thought this “plan” would give me a list of foods that would be specific to me to help re-boost my aging metabolism (ie something along the lines of avoid oranges, they will slow your metabolism, but choose banana’s, they will re-boost your metabolism, that type of thing) so was not looking to spend more than $50 for that list. I am quite happy with my current (affordable) multi vits, do not need or want fancy “supplements”. I will stick with my gym routine and making healthy food choices. I guess I was hoping for more than good old “diet and exercise”, I should have know better =)
I have done this program twice. I found I was not hungry while doing it. They DO give you a “food list” from which to choose the best foods for you. Life is of course about balance, and if you do eat right and work out, yes, you will lose wight. Honestly – my employer will pay for part of the program, so that helps me ease the pain of the cost. BUT – it does work. And it’s simple to follow. And at the end of the program if you are gaining weight, it ‘s because you went back to your “old ways” which got you to where you needed Nutrimost in the first place.
I am on my 2nd round of the program. At this point I have lost 82 lbs in 3.5 months. It works – I feel better than I have in years and am never hungry. It is not about the amount calories you are are eating and getting control of your Leptin.
I did the program in 2016 and lost 32 lbs in 40 days. My husband who also did the program lost 50 lbs. This program definitely works and assists in making lasting lifelong health changes. My husbands eczema and my skin issues also cleared significantly after completing this program. We have since stuck to this healthy lifestyle as closely as we can. We do sway from it sometimes but because of what we’ve learned whole on the program. It is costly but would and have recommended it to others who have also seen significant results.
I lost 80 pounds with 2 rounds of Nutrimost and have kept it off. I lost 32 pounds in round 1, lost 20 pounds on my own in the next 6 months, another 20 in my 2nd round, and 10 more since then. The supplements ARE included. I was NEVER hungry because of the supplements, formula, and the balanced diet. The staff and Dr. Nate at Nutrimost Rochester were fantastic to work with and were always do helpful and supportive. I know I can check in anytime even well after my program ended. I highly recommend this for anyone that is overweight and is experiencing health issues because of it. That was me. Because of the skills I learned during the program, I am confident that I will keep the weight off.
I know this is expensive. I paid 1,800 including the supplements and I was on a payment plan. Most importantly it worked. I lost 30 pounds in 40 days, continued to lose weight because my body weight was reset, my metabolism was reset, and it taught me how to eat healthy. From 2016 when I started until Feb 2018, I lost a total of 60 pounds and have maintained it. Any weight loss program is about determination and if you are willing to stick with it and this way of eating healthy is for life. Same as weight watchers, you also have to invest your money, but it is up to the individual if you are determined to do it. In my case, I did not gain back the weight anymore, I lost 60 lbs of fat, I have never in my life lost 60 lbs. Nutrimost has helped me a lot. And I did only 1 round.
Please save your money! Such a scam! Beyond expensive only to starve yourself and pump yourself up full of supplements! Of course your going to lose weight by only eating 500 calories a day! Why waste your money to starve yourself
I did Nutrimost about 6 years ago. I followed it religiously for a month but I lost only 5 lbs. I didn’t feel cared for by the clinic I went to. I felt hungry a lot. Maybe it does not work as well on people who do not have much weight to lose (about 10 lbs)?
I don’t know if it’s a “scam” given the positive reviews here (if honest and legit). However, it did not work for me as I gained back the 5 lbs. right away. I feel like I wasted the $1800.
Hello for all those saying try it first! first off, yes I tried the diet! and DO NOT recommend at all!!! YES YOU DO LOSE WEIGHT! but that is because you really are depleted food wise throughout. I dont disagree that my BP normalize since the only salt you are suppose to have is very little and the one they give you, which is great, however for someone who has a eating disorder this diet will send you on a spiral once you are done with it! AGAIN not recommend for those who have a eating disorder/not a healthy eating relationship with food. This diet does not support creating/cultivating a healthy relationship with food–so when you are done with the diet you will become a vaccum and want to eat everything and regain everything. I dont recommend it. Everything you were depleted from foodwise, from a pscologoical perspective will come to haunt you!
