I have been constantly called by Nutri System Food Company, I have questioned all the Carbs. that are in their Foods besides being so
costly. They have explained that
the food has the approval of the
ADA. which I was surpised to hear.
My question is has anyone tried
Nutri System Foods or know anything
about them. Thank You,

Boy I sure will hope I don't get called. They are selling them at Big lots. Must not be able to get rid of the stuff. The contains are the size of a little microwaveable spagetto. They don't even look appetizing. If they call me I would tell them I could buy them down the street. Thank you,please don't call here anymore.

Hi Msann,
You have to have a Credit Card and you
call your order for the monthand place
the payment on your card monthly. Every
Month you have to do this. But I am so glad that I checked it out here and will
not on that plan. I can npt afford 300.00
a month. Thanks

I can't afford it either. It's almost half of what I get.

Misery,
I hear you, that is only part of it,you
have to buy extra foods to comlete a meal,you would be spending closer to
350.00 or more. I am so glad that I did
not order through them. My poor Husband
would be going with out food because I would be spending it all on my food.

Thanks PatL
The information is great! I am going to the store tomorrow and will get some
Turkey, that is the way I like to eat
it. esp for lunch and snacks, I guess
I also could have it for dinner. Sure keeps the Carbs down. Thanks again

I ordered it a couple of years ago. When it arrived and I saw how terrible the dehydrated "meat", etc. looked, I shipped it right back without trying it. I'm so thankful I did. At least I got my money back so I wasn't out anything. Glad to know from the rest of you that I made the right decision. Blessings! Brenda

Hi Brenda,
Thanks for replying, I was so confused about the Plan,esp. since they hounded me to order with them. That is why I was asking all of you if anyone had tried
the food or knew about them. I will not order from them. Thanks again

They must not be doing that good in business. They are selling it at our BIG LOTS STORE 75 cents- $1.oo a can. I kind of thought that it was expensive for what they wanted a month.

Hi Debe,
I did not know they were selling the
food at Big Lots. I guess they are not
doing to well, people are smart and knowing that something is wrong. I guess
sales are down and dropping. Thanks for
your reply

I have never tried them. Can't afford it.

2008-10-12 14:32:20 -0500 Report

Hi Misery,
I thought I would have to save over 300.00 a month to pay for for the food,
and feed my Husband reg, food. Also
have to buy fresh food. Being on a fixed
income that is hard to do. Thanks again

My mom tried it for a while. It costs a lot because you still have to purchase fresh items. She didn't mind it so much, but she was living alone and she didn't cook for a family when she did it. In a family setting, it is very hard to do it unless you have a lot of money to spend. She had marginal success with it. Eating fresh, healthy foods seems to work better.

I know it is based on the glycemic index and that is a good thing. Of all the pre packaged foods out there, this is probably one of the better ones. However, all that processing to keep it "fresh" is not good for anyone, so I would not suggest using it for that reason alone.

Thanks Gabby,
I feel better that people have heard
about the Plan and did'nt like it,It is a lot of money to buy it monthly and not enjoy the food and have to buy fresh
food to go with the meal.Also are they radiating (spelling) the food so that
can keep, forever in the cupboard?
Thanks again for your reply.

I know 4 people who have done it. None did it for more than a month.

kdroberts,
The Reps. keep calling me and sending pamphlets. I checked it out and what the
Diabetic Plan, was the same plan for everyone, who joins. Thanks again for your response. I am not going to order
any their food, besides the cost is over
300.00 a month, plus what a person has to add to make it a full meal.

All I know is one of the women at work tried it and was very unhappy, she said the food was not to her liking at all.

2008-10-12 14:12:54 -0500 Report

DRB,
Thank you for your Reply, I had a feeling that the food was not that good
or good for a person witj diabetes. I feel better for not ordering the Plan.
Thanks again
