What foods can you eat while on Nutrisystem diet?

Nutrisystem Meals

First of all the main focus is on delivered ready-to-eat meals themselves. This includes breakfast, lunch, dinner, and one snack per day. When choosing your plan upon signing up, you will have to choose meals from the menu to be delivered to you. Some choices sound absolutely delicious:

Nutrisystem Chicken Dinner

  • Double chocolate muffins
  • Margherita pizza
  • Grilled chicken sandwich
  • Mushroom stuffed chicken breast

Nutrisystem Italian Herb PizzaNutrisystem balanced dinner options

All those meals sound fantastic and are actually good for you because of small portions, low calories, high protein and fiber, and low fat and sugar.

Non-Starchy Vegetables

Pancake with toppings and tomatoes

You can eat as much of those vegetables as you wish or at least four servings every day. The best vegetables are asparagus, beets, carrots, mushrooms, and tomatoes, so go crazy with them if you want.

Dinner

Beans, Fruit, and Whole Grains

Cucumber with cutlet and waffles

All three of those categories are smart carbs, because they are loaded with nutrients and digest somewhat slowly keeping you full for longer. You can eat ½ bananas, a ½ cup of cooked lentils or beans, and a slice of whole grain bread as one serving of smart carbs with only 80-120 calories for all that.

Nutrisystem Beans SoupNutrisystem soups for lunch

Lean Protein

You can safely nosh on 2 ounces of salmon, 2 ounces of lean beef, 2 tablespoons of walnuts, and a slice of low-fat cheese for essential amino acids and healthy fat dose.

Nutrisystem Meatballs in SauceYes, you can eat Nutrisystem meatballs and lose weight

Outside Meals

Hopefully you can stay away from non-Nutrisystem foods, especially at first, if you want to see results.

Alcohol

This one is not very good for anyone, according to government and scientists, who suggest 1-2 drinks per evening per person at most.

Nutrisystem dieters have it even worse – up to 2 drinks per week if at all, because you know, all those empty calories and sugar can’t do much good to a serious diet. Instead of alcohol, it is much more beneficial to drink vitaminize cocktails.

Some Condiments, Sauces, and Toppings

Think mayo, fatty salad dressings, and even a tiny sliver of avocado – they all are extras and should be limited to just three per day.
