Why do I get 22 breakfasts, lunches and dinners?

When ordering your Nutrisystem® plan, you have the option to have every day covered (7 days of our meals and snacks every week) or most days covered (5 days of our meals and snacks every week).

Both options will include a special first week to reboot your body. This includes a week of 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 if you chose to have most day covered. If you opted to receive five days of Nutrisystem meals and snacks for each week, 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 flexibility and 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.

If you opted to have every day covered with 7 days of meals and snacks every week, Flex meals are not required on your plan.

Please note that the Diabetes plan does not include a separate first week.
