Golic Bites the Hand That Poorly Feeds Him

4/14/2009 1:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Former NFL defensive lineman Mike Golic credits NutriSystem for a 51 lb. weight loss -- but how's this for a winning endorsement: "Some of it's awful!"

Golic is still on the company's website as a "Celebrity Success Story." We're guessing that could change shortly.

I hate to hear someone bad mouth their sponsor, company or past relationships. It is just tacky.

He's right. And MOST of it is awful. But it takes the work out of dieting. No calorie counting, etc. Just eat their prepackaged slop at 1500 calories a day and you'll lose weight. You also lose because you eat een less calories when one of your scheduled meals smells like dogfood and you throw it out and sip a meal.

I can second that emotion. I have tried NutriSystem and it is the worst food I have ever eaten! The breakfast food is ok. And, the lunch food is horrible, except they have a candy bar you can eat instead of eating lunch and it is really good. But the dinner food is not edible. I don't know how they stay in business. And, I tried to put my comments on their Web site, hoping that I could encourage them to improve their food - I even stated it in a very positive manner, and found that they censor their forum on their Web site. They have monitors who do nothing all day and night but sit there and remove any and all negative comments off their forum so that it looks like everyone loves their stuff. It became a challenge to see how long I could get a negative comment to stay on before it got caught. I never had one that stayed more than three minutes!

And their service, OMG, their service is the ABSOLUTE WORST. Gosh, they screw up every order I made. Honestly, it was horrible. Those of you whom have seen me post on these forums in the past year know I do not post negative things on here. As a matter of fact, I rebel against all the negative stuff people write on boards. But, you have touched a nerve here. NutriSystem is AWFUL. I found nothing, NOTHING good about it.

Golic did great on that Nutrisystem. However, he is not a linebacker. TMZ is funny sometimes.
