This newest innovation from NutriSystem caters exclusively to the unique dietary needs of diabetics. This population of Americans is continuing to grow, and as a leader in weight loss products, NutriSystem is creating a diabetic version one of its famous meal plans with NutriSystem D.

The program was undergoing clinical trials in late 2008 and became available in Spring 2009. The trial showed that users lost 16 times more weight with NutriSystem D than without, lowered their blood sugar level five times more, and lowered their A1c (glycated hemoglobin) by 0.9.

The NutriSystem D program functions very similarly to the other NutriSystem programs. It allows you to lose weight, control blood-sugar levels and manage your diabetes with its 28-day menu-delivery program that include diabetic-friendly, low-glycemic carbohydrates, free round-the-clock access to registered dietitians and an easy-to-follow meal plan.

NutriSystem announced in July 2012 that it added a team of certified diabetes educators that's part of the company's dietary and healthcare services department and is available by phone to Nutrisystem D customers seven days a week from 7 a.m. - 12 a.m. (EST). This service is free to Nutrisystem D customers and intended to be an additional support system and answer questions about anything from nutrition to personal care.

DIET and NUTRITION

The NutriSystem D plan has created more than 150 restaurant-quality meals that meet the needs of a diabetic diet. The foods rank low on the Glycemic Index and provide foods with quality carbohydrates that won't send your blood sugar in a tailspin, satiating fiber, so that you'll feel fuller for longer, lean protein, and heart-healthy omega-3 fats.

On the NutriSystem D plan you will eat three meals, one snack and one dessert each day. Like all NutriSystem plans, you will have to supplement your packaged foods with low-fat dairy and fresh fruits and vegetables.

A typical day looks like this: NutriSystem scrambled eggs and cheese for breakfast, beef and vegetable soup with a green salad for lunch, NutriSystem pretzels for a snack, sliced beef steak with potato wedges and brocoli for dinner and low fat yogurt and mixed berries for dessert,

  • Cheesy Margherita Pizza
  • Golden Pancakes
  • Savory Lasagna
  • Decadent Fudge Brownie
EXERCISE

You are encouraged to exercise while following the NutriSystem D program. As part of your membership, you receive a free fitness DVD by Leslie Sansone which provides you sample workouts and guidelines for developing your own regular fitness routine.

CONCLUSION

NutriSystem D provides meals suited to help manage a diabetic diet. With broad menu choices and the NutriSystem name thousands have trusted for years, it's likely to be a positive ally for diabetics trying to manage their weight.

NutriSystem D is not the first meal delivery service to create diabetic meal plans. Competitors like Biggest Loser Meal Plan, DineWise Diabetic, Bistro MD and Jenny Direct all provide diabetic meals. See how they compare in our Meal Delivery Diet Comparison.

I would like to start the program but on my budget I can't afford it. My wife does not work, and she wants to do it too. We can't afford these high price diets and exercise plans to get ourselves healthy.

I have only been on it for few days and wth the excersisg video and the food it started off hard but as the days go on it has been become a little easier. I am going to continue until I complete my ideal A1C tests for diabetes, bring down my cholosterol and beyond that... Thank you Nutrisystem for helping me make the first step into saving my life.
