Policies & Plans
Some of the food is great I was grateful for the chance to try the food before going all in on the expensive monthly plan. The shakes are good. I finally saw this package and decided to buy it. There have been a few slip ups and I have swapped out a vegetable they recommend for one I love.
About This Item
I bought 2 at that time. By the time I was getting low and needed to purchase more, I was told I could find it at Walmart on line. I've been on the program 3 weeks and have lost 12 pounds. The food is really good and I have more energy to do things. I would recommend this to anyonne serious about losing some weight. It's easier on the budget to pick up one or two of these smaller packages than having a month's worth of food shipped.
Susie, May 3, I am not diabetic but the food in this box sounded tastier than the food in some of the other boxes. I ordered this along with the frozen food box so I would have 10 days to give Nutrisystem a try again.
Buying Nutrisystem food from Walmart is so much cheaper than buying directly from the Nutrisystem company and you can get the food when you want it rather than the monthly shipments and automatic charges to your debit card.
Everything I have tried so far is very good considering it's diet food and I will order this again. I was diagnosed with type-2 diabetes about a month ago. My life-long party with food had to change. I'm not the type to weigh a few ounces of chicken here and the size of an apple there. I needed something that I could follow without all the hassles of the work.
I bought my first 5-day plan at Walmart because I wanted to try the food instead of obligating myself to an expensive plan with Nutrisystem. The food is not gourmet but at the same time is mostly not that bad. Most of the snacks are actually pretty good. Some of the meals, like the "Loaded Potato" are actually powder that is mixed with water and then nuked. It's not anything like a true loaded potato but I guess that's the point.
I've been on the program for a month by buying the same 5-day program package from Walmart. It's cheaper than signing up with Nutrisystem and I don't mind eating the same thing every five days. I've had a few meals over the month that were off the wagon but I went straight back to the plan afterwards.
I've lost almost 10 pounds. I haven't been back to the doctor yet to see if my A1C has dropped. If you're thinking of signing up for the full plan, it's a good way to try before you buy.

Haven't had the Rotini yet, and after last night, I'm a little afraid. I was disappointed to find, however, that the Nutrisystem D 5-day plan marketed to diabetics contained all but two of the same meal choices. I bought the Diabetic plan to try next week, hoping there would be different meals with lower carb content more like Atkins bars and meals.
In any case, it's a great jump start to get your eating under control, and I will do it next week, but skip the Chicken Alfredo! LifetimeDieter, September 13, Highly Recommend this Starter Program!! This five-day starter box was a great start to a great program. As with any diet, the first couple days are the hardest, but the meals are packaged wonderfully and are very convenient.
The five-day starter box has a variety of different food types to give an idea of the tastes. After completing my five-day starter program, I decided to order a month supply directly from Nutrisystem. If you have never tried Nutrisystem, I think the starter box is a great way to get introduced. However, if you try the box and like some but not all the foods, then keep going and sign up for the service on-line to customize your food.
Everyone's tastes are different so being able to customize what foods you want is a very nice feature of ordering on-line after you've tried the starter program. This program has taught me portion control and I'm losing weight and feeling better. I would highly recommend this program to everyone! Fluffyissofluffy, July 25, I have purchased this packet for 3 weeks.
I have followed it almost to the letter. There have been a few slip ups and I have swapped out a vegetable they recommend for one I love. I have lost That is also buying it, using it for 5 days then my own food for 2 days then back on for the next 5, etc. I am pleased with the food. The only one I could live without and am not too fond of is the chicken alfredo. I do add a tad bit of garlic powder to it and that makes a world of difference. The rest of the food is pretty darn good.
I'm so thrilled with my overall outcome of this sample packet, I'm biting the bullet and joining NutriSystem next week. Good luck to everyone. I know what a battle this is and I'm excited about this. Thanks WalMart and NutriSystem for giving us the opportunity to try it before we buy it. Bearskin, July 28, I love this program! I have been thinking about trying Nutrisystem for a few months now. I finally saw this package and decided to buy it.
