Why do I get 22 breakfasts, lunches and dinners?

On the Nutrisystem® program, you will begin with a special first week to reboot your body. This includes a week of specially selected meals (7 breakfasts, 7 lunches, 7 dinners, 7 snacks and 7 shakes). Going into week 2, you will get to enjoy more flexibility and prepare some of your own favorite meals. You will make 2 Flex Breakfasts, 2 Flex Lunches, 2 Flex Dinners and 2 Flex Snacks (men prepare 4 Flex snacks) each week where you’ll be adding in your own foods in place of a Nutrisystem® option.

The Flex meals provide members with opportunities to practice preparing their own meals and snacks following our simple guidelines. You can also enjoy Flex meals while dining out at your favorite restaurants. The second and subsequent months of your four-week plan do not include a separate first week and will include 20 breakfasts, 20 lunches and 20 dinners.

Please note that the Diabetes plan does not include a separate first week. The Uniquely Your Ultimate Plan does not require Flex Meals.
