So you can get your personal favorites. Existing customers of the program are very happy with the diet program cost, and most of them say that the convenience, taste and results associated with the program are worth the price paid. I hope someone posts an answer because I was wondering that too. The time now is Other than breakfast, lunch and dinner, the company is offering desserts, snacks and shakes as well. I've done some research and if you go through the meal plans you'll notice on the regular plan there are a lot that are suitable for diabetics, so no there are not too many differences in the two plans. You can make it really simple, frozen steam in bag vegetables, bagged salads, and whole fruit; or you can make it more complex, sauteeing various fresh veggie mixtures, roasting, baking
So, the company fills the package with foods that are glycemic friendly, which means that the foods are low in sugars and carbs and high in proteins and fiber.
Now, the basic package and the D package share many of the same foods. In fact, there are many sweet or dessert type options on the D plan. But, the difference is that the D program is set up to contain no more than 80 grams of sugar per day with at least 30 grams of fiber.
And, this diabetic program has been studied in clinical studies and the results have been quite favorable. For example, participants on the D program lost up to 16 times more weight and 14 times more off their waist line than those who were not on the program. You eat the same number of meals on the diabetic program five times per day. You still eat three regular meals with a dessert and snack.
You will see that you have tons of sweet items like a cinnamon bun, blueberry muffin, chocolate chip scone, chocolate cake, and a variety of cookies and other desserts. I started Nutrisystem about 5 weeks ago. I chose the diabetic plan because I figured that I would take all the help I could get with controlling my blood sugar and insulin resistance.
In the 5 weeks I've been on plan, I have lost 13 pounds after being stuck in the 's for over a year. I've only just recently added in exercise, but I can already fit into smaller clothes! You can expect reasonably high loss in your first couple weeks, then slows down to average of pounds per week. Just to make sure that you're aware because some people who order are surprised to find out , the bulk of your food will come from fresh or frozen fruits and vegetables.
You can make it really simple, frozen steam in bag vegetables, bagged salads, and whole fruit; or you can make it more complex, sauteeing various fresh veggie mixtures, roasting, baking Dash, 6 spears of roasted asparagus, and my Nutrisystem entree of Rotini and Meatballs.
You'll also need to make sure you're drinking at least 64 oz. If you do sign up for NS, or if you're on the fence and trying to decide, I really recommend checking out the discussion boards there. There are a lot of people who have been really successful with the plan that hang around and help out those of us who need it.
If you have any questions, feel free to ask me! I'm no veteran, but I've gotten into a groove and feel comfortable with it now. Wow, thanks that was very helpful. That sounds like a lot of food you can eat! I am okay with cooking some vegetables and making a salad to go with my meals. But trying to cook healthy and making sure that I keep those groceries in the house has been the most challenging part of losing weight for me.
I seriously can't stand going to the grocery store. But if I just go in for produce I'm good. Plus buying all that chicken and salmon and the things I have been getting has been very expensive so I figured I may as well just get the NS and it would all work out the same.
I think I'm going to get it too but I have to wait till payday. BigFurrygirl YAY good luck!! I just signed up for the regular program. I guess I will start next week after the food gets here. I lost some weight doing the GI diet, but with the fertility meds, its creeping back on and not budging.
