If you’ve been considering signing up for a meal delivery diet, but have been put off by the cost, now might be your chance to give it a try. NutriSystem is running a special limited-time offer, with 50 percent off your first auto-delivery order. Signing up also gives you access to the NutriSystem online tools and support system, plus no additional charges for shipping. This offer will expire on June 30, 2011.
NutriSystem offers a number of plans, including one specifically designed for diabetics. The women’s plan is roughly 1,200 calories per day, and the men’s program is roughly 1,500 calories per day. Each plan contains a healthy nutritional balance of 55 percent carbohydrates, 25 percent fats and 20 percent protein.
On the diet, you will receive 28 days of pre-packaged meals made from ingredients that have a low-glycemic index. When you sign up, you can make meal selections based on your needs and tastes from over 150 dishes. These foods are shelf-stable, and many will need to be re-heated in the microwave. People on the Nutrisystem diet are encouraged to also eat six servings of fresh vegetables and fruit, which can be purchased at your local grocery store or farmer’s market.
