Paleo-style diets typically exclude grains, dairy products, legumes, potatoes, refined sugars and oils, and processed foods.

A preliminary, three-month study compared the Paleo diet with the standard diabetes diet evenly distributed meals that were moderate in carbohydrate and fat in people with type 2 diabetes and found the Paleo diet was more satiating filling per calorie. It also produced significantly more weight loss, plus better blood sugar control, improved cholesterol, and lower diastolic blood pressure.

The kit comes with recipes in the back for your meal or suggestions for snacks. So you get a Nutrisystem breakfast, lunch and snack each day. You provide dinner meal and pick each day off their snack suggestions. Very structure yet flexible enough to eat out or eat a meal with family ect. The good and the bad. The breakfast and snacks are wonderful.

The shakes are good. Found a problem with the lunches and dinners. Mostly you loose weight because the food for these meals is not very good. Had to throw out a few because one taste or two and I couldn't eat them. Do know the pizza is good but must order separately from meal kit. I wound up ordering individual foods from Nutrisystem direct and from Walmart. Peggers, February 19, A lot of snack bars and cerials just not for me.

This was advertised as 21 Meals. A snack is not a meal. It is deceptive and dishonest to imply you are getting 21 meals. It should have been advertised as 14 meals and 7 snacks. Yes, in the fine print it spells is out, but it is still wrong.

The food is decent but labeling dishonest. Oldcowgirl1, June 5, See all 5 reviews.
