Breakfast foods might be the last thing on your mind in the rushed hours of the morning, but they’re a huge help if you’re trying to lose weight. Approximately 78 percent of the National Weight Control Registry members that have lost an average of 66 pounds (and maintained this weight loss for five and a half years!) are breakfast eaters, with 90 percent of that group eating breakfast five or more times per week.
And, if you don’t eat it, you’re five times more likely to be obese, according to scientists from the University of Massachusetts!
So how do you make it happen? Well, your go-to breakfast foods have to be easy and good… otherwise, you’re most likely not going to eat the morning meal.
Nutrisystem breakfasts take care of both: Many take less than a minute to prepare in the microwave, while other options are simply grab and go. Each one has filling fiber and protein to help you feel full longer, so you don’t snack before lunch. Most importantly, they taste great.

What People Are Saying: “When I’m craving sweet breakfast, I don’t reach for doughnuts. Instead I grab my Cinnamon Bun and it satisfies my sweet tooth and controls my appetite.”
What People Are Saying: “Eight to 10 seconds in the microwave and you have a melty chocolate muffin that tastes fresh out of the bakery, is moderately high in protein and super high in fiber. Just perfect!”
What People Are Saying: “I always think of bars as being “light” food, but not so with Nutrisystem. These bars curb my appetite for hours and hours. I try to nibble them, but they’re so good I just chomp them down in three or four bites!”
What People Are Saying: “These waffles are delicious… You get two waffles that are the same same as [the top grocery store versions] but taste so much better! They come out crispy and never have mushy spots like other frozen waffles. YUMMY!”
What People Are Saying: “I am a carb person, so I was excited when I saw the muffins in my box. I enjoyed this muffin… I suggest pulling the top off and cutting the bottom and top into four pieces (eight total) to make it last and take your time eating.”
What People Are Saying: “The smell wafted up from the wrapper and my world stopped spinning. I took a bite and was blown away. Word cannot express how much I love this breakfast bar! I could happily eat it every morning for the rest of my existence. This and a cup of hot tea send me to nirvana.”
What People Are Saying: “I ate this for breakfast on my first day of Nutrisystem. I was shocked at how tasty and filling this omelet was, especially at only 90 calories. I ate it with a little ketchup and two hours later, had one packet of oatmeal; my entire breakfast was only 200 calories and I didn’t feel hungry. I loved this so much that I ordered an additional eight omelets the next day.”
