I developed Type II diabetes, and had swollen ankles, which were very painful. Congratulations on your success so far on the plan! Thanks Keep an eye on your inbox, the lastest consumer news is on it's way! I lost no weight on this diet. The plan is not for pregnant women, people with chronic kidney disease , or anyone with certain allergies or diet needs. While they are good, they are also small, so I find that eating some salad with them is a good idea. We will be assigning this to a member of the Consumer Experience Team who will be reaching out soon.
Nutrisystem Women's Diabetic Plan Review
There are foods to choose from their most extensive plan "Uniquely Yours. You can buy a day shipment of food that the company selects, or you can choose each individual item yourself. You can sign up for a meal plan intended for women, men, vegetarians, people with diabetes, or anyone older than You hardly have to cook, since most Nutrisystem foods either are ready to eat or only need heating.
But some items that you buy from the grocery store, like vegetables and fish, may involve more preparation. Nutrisystem suggests you get at least 30 minutes of physical activity daily. You can break this up into three minute periods throughout the day. There are meal plans for vegetarians and people with diabetes. But the program does not have plans for people following a vegan diet. And it doesn't allow for certain food allergies including soy or peanut allergies , and it's not gluten-free.
The cost varies based on things like the plan you choose -- such as for women or men, vegetarians, older adults, or people with diabetes.
The program has an online community and web-based tools, as well as help by phone. You may face a challenge when you go off the program and have to make more food choices on your own. The program provides information on how to do this. Controlling calories and portions and eating regular meals is a healthy formula that should result in weight loss while on the plan. It can be harder to make the transition to eating "real food" when you get closer to your weight-loss goal and don't rely on meals already made for you.
Overall the diet is healthy for people with conditions like heart disease , high blood pressure , high cholesterol , and diabetes. Meals are low in sodium, saturated fats , and trans fats , and include high-fiber whole grains, smart carbs, healthy fats , lean protein, and a wide variety of foods.
The Nutrisystem diet is the ultimate in convenience. The real question is whether you can continue to lose weight or maintain your weight when you are no longer relying on the prepackaged foods. The Promise Nutrisystem aims to simplify weight loss. You're discouraged from eating out, and advised to mostly avoid alcohol.
For desserts and snacks, you might have brownies, cake, or cookies. I have noticed my fasting blood sugar is higher and even though I'm on the D diabetic plan there are tons of carbs. I intend to continue thru the packs I have then make a decision about continuing. The weight will have to come off and the blood sugar go down if it's a go. I might change to the new Atkins program that allows for 40 grams of carbs a day. I want to place my next order. I can't seem to get on the correct page to do this.
Just joined this website a few minutes ago. I've been on Nutrisystem off and on for about 20 years. I did not join as a diabetic but I'm not switching plans as I checked food for food on both plans and I'm ok; I'm not ordering anything that's NOT on the diabetic plan so I'm ok with the Woman's Plan.
My opinion on Nutrisystem is this: That's been the main reason why I stopped the plan over the years, it got very expensive. Cost aside, I really like the food buttered popcorn is to die for and yes it's on the diabetic plan also , there's enough of a variety for anyone.
I believe that once I loose all my weight 20 down, 15 to go , since I am now a diabetic I will be keeping the weight off and not go back to my old eating habits crossing my fingers on this of course when I go off Nutrisystem.
So, bottom line - main con is Cost. The glycemic index does not consider the glycemic load. Sure, carrots are high on the glycemic index, but you'd have to load 3 REALLY large raw carrots to get a slight increase in blood sugar.
I find nutrisystem to be misleading. ANYone can prepare a diabetes friendly menu with some education and a trip to the store to get the good foods, for a lot less that NS.
It's all in portion sizes, and you can cook the correct portions yourself for much less. There are NO "you can't have it" foods on a 'diabetic diet.
Just healthy cooking the foods you like and stepping away from the table a little sooner. If you are presented with a fake cookie alongside a real cookie, I would wager many people would eat the 'diet cookie has just as many carbs as a regular cookie, by the way and then eat the REAL cookie too, because it's more satisfying.
See your local diabetes educator for more details. I dont need to lose alot of weight but need to reduce sugars and retrain myself to eat right will this work.
I am a person who can eat anything. I have liked everything in my diet plan. I am fat because I can eat everything and what I get from Nutrisystem is consistency,eat this and this and this. This is my new medicine. About 10 months ago I weighed in at pounds. Had been diagnosed with type-2 diabetes as well as hypertension. I'm a single dad with two boys counting on me to be there.
I saw the nutri-system - D plan on television one day, but simply couldn't see myself ever being able to afford it on my income. Eventually, I came to the realization that I couldn't afford not to try it. While it hasn't been easy, it has been worth it. After 10 months I am 70 pounds lighter and still dropping. I know I'm a long ways from my goal of , but I know I will get there. I'm also able to be more active with my sons. When you're ready to quit you will. As far as the price, it's really not that bad when you toss in the frequent discounts.
It's easy to cut corners and or place a price on health until you don't have it anymore. The food makes you have so much gas that it makes you feel miserable. I lost no weight on this diet. Plan less than I spent on groceries a month. Must be committed to changing eating habits. I'm also considering it because it will save me time. I've done the Zone and South Beach diets and it's time consuming. Would be nice be able to go to the gym after work, then come home and have a meal ready, rather than spend 30 mins or more preparing one.
Just hope the food is really good. Folks, it is 10 dollars a day. You spend that , I bet on food. Fast food is about that for one meal, unless you buy the dollar junk. It is a lot of money, but total your weekly shopping list first before you say you can not afford it.
I do hope everyone out there better finances this coming year. Food still costs money.
