The Nutrisystem ® program is based on the proven science of the Glycemic Index and places a premium on heart healthy menu items because it is low in fat, low in saturated fats, low in cholesterol, and has zero trans fat.
Nutrisystem programs (including recommended grocery additions) provide approximately 1800-2200 mg of sodium each day. This is a dramatic improvement over the 3400 mg/day that the average American consumes and is consistent with the target of < 2300 mg/day for the general adult population, as recommended in the USDA’s Dietary Guidelines for Americans – 2010. Options to customize these programs to meet lower sodium targets, as well as targets for other health goals, are available through consultation with our nutrition and dietary team.
The Nutrisystem groundbreaking integration of low Glycemic Index carbohydrates into a low fat meal plan offers the best of both worlds—low fat and “good carbs”—a unique combination that helps support stable blood sugar levels.
In the current down economy, Nutrisystem customers are tightening their belts – literally! Nutrisystem customers are able to lose weight while they save money because Nutrisystem is true value - the program costs hundreds of dollars less than other weight loss programs.
