Nutrisystem Advanced Two-Week Take to Work Lunch Pack
I Love it...!
The pack is GREAT! I ordered both the breakfast & lunch packs. I have really enjoyed just grabbing an item for my breakfast, lunch or snack! The variety is limited, but i manage to work with what I have!!! I just started on my pack, so I can't tell you if i have lost any weight yet. I'm hopeful...!
This is a great value! I'm doing the 5 day box from Walmart and lost 3 lbs the first week! Some of the bars are a little too sweet for me so I will ad one of these meals in place of a bar. This is so easy and Nutrisystem meals are worlds better than any other diet plan I can buy at the store without a big money or long term commitment.
This plan really works if you give it a chance!
Like another poster - I gave 4 stars instead of 5 because of the limited variety, and too many bars.
Also, because the items arrived as though they were just tossed in a box, the heavier items crushed some of the lighter items - this is a problem since you need to "cook" the food in the containers.
I have lost weight (as has my husband) so the plan works.
Great to bring to work!
Over the last 5 months I've purchased 4 of these lunches. They are great to pack for work and much cheaper than the food in the cafeteria. Plus they are helping keep the weight off that I lost when on the full program. The meals are good. I just have two caveats, hence the 4 stars. I wish there was more food instead of so many bars. Secondly, 3 Fettuccini Alfredo's in one order is a bit much. Nutrisystem needs to add some different meals instead. Other than that I will continue to order.
This is my second order for the lunches. I have also ordered the breakfast pack. I find just grabbing a breakfast bar or cereal in the morning is quick and satsifying. I don't have the time for much else. The lunches are satisfying and tasty and makes it easy during the work week to grab and go. Will continue to purchase.
Quick & Easy and soooooodelicious
I thought the food was very good and quick; I was able to make it in my micro. oven.
With the weather being cold, I was warmed up with this product.
I don't know where that other guy got his ingredients from, but when I checked my bar, sardines, tilapia, anchovies was not listed in my food ingredients! I think the food is pretty good, you just got to plan your meals, big salads and veggies!! I do the weekends off, my first week so far so good! I would continue to buy!
PLEASE Get Some new lunches QVC
I really like most of the nutrisystem food .Really love the breakfasts and dinners but if you're on AD like me, with the same old fettucine alfredo, black bean , and split pea soup, they really get old month after month. Nutrisystem has other items that you could give us, I have checked ! Please change them or I might have to stop Auto-delivery. Wonder if I could do the dinners for lunch and just not have the extra protein? Might try that before next shipment
Tomato based foods are favorites
The chefs got the tomato based foods just right. Not too spicy, not at all bland. My favorite is the lasagna. Can't say the same for the chicken dishes, but the macaroni & cheese is tasty. Any diet with cookies, crunchies, chocolate and cheese is right for me.
This lunch pack has helped me tremendously. They are easy to take to work for lunch or to make on the weekends. At times I've used the lunch bars to replace the breakfast bars because they are higher in protein. (I sometimes need the higher protein due to reactive hypoglycemia.)
Fish based lunches
After the first day I was on NutriSystem (Thursday), I tried the Fettucine Alfredo for lunch and felt ill shortly after and upset stomache most of the afternoon. When I had the opportunity to check the ingredients I was disgusted to find out that it included tilapia, sardines, and anchovies. I would NEVER have purchased this if I knew that. When on the phone with the QVC representative before I ordered, she could not tell me the ingredients and they are not listed on QVC's Web site. Without that information readily available, I did not think that these items would include meat or fish-based items based on the titles (other than the ham and chicken dishes which are included in the product name). I checked the rest of the lunch assortment and EVERYTHING in the lunch assortment includes tilapia, sardines, and anchovies as ingredients (everything...even the chocolate raspberry bar, the fudge graham bar and the cheese ravioli). I have never eaten fish my entire life, and am very upset that these are ingredients in the lunches - that is most likely why I got ill, my body is not used to it. QVC does not handle exchanges on NutriSystem items. I am required to pay for shipping to return three weeks worth of lunches directly to NutriSystem and they will replace them with vegetarian lunches - the only option without fish based products. I haven't even taken it to the post office yet because I know it will probably be $30, at least (quite heavy with soups, etc.).
This pack is really not good at all!!! The only good thing in it was the tortellini. The soups were nasty with hard beans in it.
