Here are some answers to some common questions regarding Food.
How do I know what to eat and when?
When you receive your order for the 28-day diet food program, you’ll get a NutriSystem Meal Planner. This checkbook-sized guide outlines your meals and snacks for you and features 28 Daily Diary pages on which you can “check off” your entrees, snacks, desserts, and fresh produce and dairy servings each day as you go along. You’ll eat healthy meals and snacks often throughout the day, and your Planner will be your easy-to-follow guide.
Do I have to eat all the Food listed on the meal plan daily?
Nutrisystem encourages eating all the food servings listed on your meal plan. Your meal plan has been designed to give you all the essential nutrients needed for optimal nutrition and safe and effective weight loss.
Do I need to eat vegetables and fruit while on the program?
NutriSystem is all about healthy weight loss and learning about and maintaining a balanced diet. As part of your program, it is strongly recommended that you include a variety of fruit and vegetables for optimal health and fresh dairy servings.
Does the NutriSystem meal plan meet USDA standards for a healthy diet?
The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) released its sixth set of recommendations on eating–the Dietary Guidelines for Americans in 2005. The upshot is that there’s good news for everyone participating in the NutriSystem program—your meal plan meets and, in many cases, exceeds the government standards for healthy eating.
Further, the NutriSystem meal plans:
Contain more minor than the recommended limit of sodium intake
Featureless than 5% of their calories from trans and saturated fats, which is less than half the maximum allowed in the guidelines
I have always stressed choosing lean, low-fat, and non-fat meats
Include the ability to get half your servings of carbohydrates in the form of whole grains and the other half from enriched or whole-wheat sources, as suggested
Recommend at least 4 ½ cups of fruits and vegetables
Do I need to put my Nutrisystem Advanced foods in the freezer or refrigerator?
Not at all. All foods are “packaged for portability”—an essential convenience when losing weight. Simultaneously, many entrees look like frozen entrees, sealed through a “soft canning” process (like you would tomatoes or peaches), locking in the nutrition and great taste. You get fresh-tasting foods that don’t require refrigeration and are ready to go whenever and wherever you are.
How should I store my NutriSystem foods?
When you receive your food, you don’t need to refrigerate or freeze them—stored at room temperature in a cupboard or on the countertop. Many people also keep a stash at work, or anywhere they may want to have healthy meals and snacks handy. It’s a great way to stay on track with your weight loss program.
How do I prepare my NutriSystem foods?
Each food item has specific preparation instructions on its box or container and takes just minutes to prepare.
