Nutrisystem Food Review: Nutrisystem and PCOS

nutrisystem front

Guess what came in my mailbox?  Well, I’m sure you can guess by the photo! :) Yes!  Nutrisystem D 5 day jumpstart kit.  These kits are sold exclusively through Walmart and are a great buy if you are interested in possibly starting the Nutrisystem journey.  I was diagnosed with PCOS a few years ago.  It causes weight gain and for me, I have horrible sugar crashes.  I feel tired ALL the time.  So I was excited to start their diabetic meal plan.


There was a LOT of food in this box!  It comes with 5 breakfasts, 5 lunches, 5 dinners and 5 desserts!  WOW!

One of my concerns with Nutrisystem was that you normally order a whole month’s worth of food at once.  I didn’t know if it would fit in my freezer!  So I was surprised to find that NONE of the food in my jumpstart kit required freezing.

And I’m not going to lie.  That had me a little concerned.  There is no way I could stick to a plan that doesn’t taste good! So here is my Nutrisystem Food Review!

My first morning I had the granola cereal and milk.  (Verdict: Granola cereal was yum!)

Lunch was Red Beans and Rice and salad.  Now, let’s be honest.  I don’t like beans.  I don’t eat them.  BUT I tried it.  And, there weren’t very many beans in it. :) And it was actually pretty good.

Dinner was lasagna with meat sauce, garlic toast and some green beans.  Not bad, not bad.  :) This is a dinner I would order from them again.

And don’t forget dessert!  Chocolatey Nougat Bar with Peanuts and Caramel (AKA Nutrisystem’s version of a Snickers).

Add in 2 snacks and WOW.  This is one diet you won’t go hungry on!!

So far I’ve been pleasantly surprised.  The food is pretty good!  I don’t feel like I’m missing out on anything and even if I was craving something on the not approved diet plan - I wouldn’t even have any room for it! Seriously, for me it was almost a struggle to eat everything!  (What a horrible problem to have huh?)

I’m really excited to see how tomorrow goes and how following a meal plan like this will effect the way I feel (NO sugar crashes? PLEASE!)
