Rated 4 out of 5 by MIss B So Far So Good
Just started on this program and it has actually been great! The food is actually not bad at all and the snacks are generous size portions--plus really tastes good. I am glad that I decided to take a chance on this program and will update my review as I progress on the plan.

Tried this food for two weeks and it was awful........So sent it back.... The pizza taste like cardboard and the sodium count was horrible......sorry but just saying the truth...
Rated 2 out of 5 by ChristineFlyersQueen If it wouldn't have cost so much I probably....
.... wouldn't have eaten half the stuff. Some of the meals were absolutely horrific tasting. I was surprised there were so many snacks also. I don't eat that many normally. I will finish the order simply because it cost me so much. I haven't weighed myself so I don't even know if I've lost any during this first week.
Rated 4 out of 5 by KKD It's do-able!!
I have been type II Diabetic for over 30 years and insulin dependent for the last 6 years. I've done almost everything. My glucose readings have dropped way down and I have to be careful to make sure it doesn't bottom out. I truly don't understand the reviews about excess salt and sugar. My readings are so much better on NutriSystem! The taste of the food is GOOD - not like home cooking but all in all very good and I am a VERY picky eater. I find it's a great plan for me with adding in the veggies. Down 6 lbs the first 4 days! I've ordered from QVC and Nutri System directly. I like ordering from their Core Plan best because I choose what I eat. It does cost more - but worth it for me.
I have one complaint that no one else has addressed or it's just "my issue". The Packaging is so difficult for me to deal with. The canned foods are almost impossible to open. I have to use a helping opener & it gets very messy at times. There have been times the can ring has broken off, leaving me with no way to get to the food. I find the plastic lids difficult to remove before opening and after cooking so I have to place these items in separate microwaveable containers. I wrestle with opening the bars and tearing off the plastic for venting on some microwave entrees. If you have strength issues with your hands - it's not fun.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Mathilde Too much sugar for a diabetic plan?
After adding up the sugar content for my 20 day diabetic plan I found it to contain 436 grams of sugar, which I was informed was about 109 teaspoons of sugar. I called Nutrisystem and they told me it was within guidelines, but I would have preferred better guidelines. One of the snacks, a 1.8 oz. piece of carrot cake has 12 grams of sugar, so I have to take that into consideration when I plan out my daily meals to make sure I don't have a Granola Cereal with 11 grams of sugar for breakfast, a Trail Mix bar with 11 grams of sugar for lunch and some Lasagna with meat sauce with 6 grams of sugar or I end up with 40 grams, or about 10 teaspoons of sugar ( A Snickers bar contains 27 grams of sugar) all in one day. I think they should review the guidelines and see what they can come up with to better it. Just my opinion.

Rated 1 out of 5 by nurse nancy Beware of sodium
I have been a diabetic for 30 years. I am in stage 3 kidney failure. I really have to watch my sodium level now. If you have kidney problems stay away. This would me fine for a new diabetic but not me.

I would not order this plan again.
I bought it because my Dr. told me I had diabetes. Long story short it turns out I don't. However, since I had already ordered and received a month of the plan I've been trying to eat it. I'm not really following it alone as a diet plan so I can't speak to weight loss. What I can say is that the meals are SUPER skimpy and taste awful. They are bland and leave an aftertaste. Once OUT of the box some of the meals, bear little to no resemblance to how they are pictured ON the box. I will truly eat just about anything, hence the need to diet, but I gave the popcorn a go the other day and had to throw it out. Popcorn! And I was HUNGRY!
I still had to give this product two stars because the one good thing about the plan, if you can tolerate the taste, is that it is convenient and structured.
