What is the Week 1 sample menu?

Your first week on Nutrisystem is designed to reboot your body and kickstart your weight loss.* This first week includes seven meals, snacks and shakes each day (first order only). You can choose any foods to enjoy from your order, just make sure to select one breakfast, one shake, one lunch, one snack and one dinner each day. You’ll also add in at least four servings of non-starchy vegetables every day.

We’ve provided a recommended week one sample menu for our standard plan below. However, please note that the specific Nutrisystem foods may be different based on your customized order. If so, it’s fine to replace any item with another Nutrisystem item for that meal occasion. If you are on a personalized meal plan and using NuMi SmartAdapt, be sure to check the NuMi app for your recommended sample menu.
