The proof is in the pudding. Start with their infomercials. How many African Americans, Hispanics, Asians, etc. have you seen on them? NONE. On their site, less than 5% of their "success" stories feature any minorities. There are more than 5% minorities in the US. I personally know of a person there whom has had tremendous success on their program, and she has not been featured because she is confined to a wheelchair. This type of bias and basically discrimination goes back many years.
On their online forum, they are also religiously biased. If you are not of the "Christian" belief, the moderators have a tendency to dictate where your posts should be directed. I was moderated because I was posting comments on atheist beliefs. Asking questions and trying to get answers are in vain because they can "choose" not to give you a reason why your posts are not acceptable to them. As long as you "believe in God", you're fine with them.

They are great with their advertising to the caucasian population, however they are on their way downward right now, along with the economy. For such a large company in the public eye, I am surprised that not more has not been noticed about their ads being "white" in nature. Sure Chris Carter has been on their, but he's a Pro Athlete. Try finding "regular" people of color on their ads. You can count them on 1 finger. People should be aware of the type of company they are keeping in business. After attempting to contact people on my concerns and getting the run around several times, I thought it would be more informative to post it here.

#1 Consumer Suggestion

stop taking it and guess what?

AUTHOR: Cat - (U.S.A.)

It stops working! Read all the "fine print" people........even the few people that took it, once they worked normal food back in, they gained it back. Look at a lot of the food in the ads. Hey want pizza, hamburgers, hot dogs? Not a problem! Eat OURS and you don't have to changed a thing! Wrong! You put junk into your body and gues what? You will gain weight. Nutru systems needs to be doing a better job at teaching you about food, calories, how much food cost per pound, how long can food last in a week etc... You have to change what you have been doing, how you eat, how much and put a lot and I mean A LOT of EXERCISE in your daily life. You dont need expensive food to lose weight and become healthy. Ya just got to get yourself out of bed and hop on a bike, summer is here, go on a bike ride, go swimming! Enjoy life! Then use the money you saved at Nutri System on a nice new outfit for summer!

It's a SHAME.... NO PEOPLE OF COLOR!!!

AUTHOR: ru4real - (USA)

I find it a shame to know in the year 2009 we still have to deal with all these subtle racist visuals of our people. If people of color are not being marketed in their ads, then where are these individuals and why are they not being promoted?


It really should not matter who takes advantage of this weight loss program b/c ALL $$$ looks green to me!!! I am very saddened by this report and will now think twice rather I will order ANY NutriSystem products!!!!! Wow!!! Why can't this country just get it together, is it ALL about $$$ ..... Where's the INTEGRITY!!!
