How to Space Out Your Nutrisystem Meals

Our weight loss meal plan is easy to follow, but that doesn’t mean the first shipment of diet food won’t make you feel slightly overwhelmed—it’s common. A large box filled with shakes, bars, snacks and entrées—that’s a LOT of diet food. The good news is everything will be labeled for you to understand what you should be eating and when.

If you’ve ordered our FreshStart Program, your first shipment will also include a box that looks like this and is labeled “FreshStart Week 1”:

This box includes every item you’ll be eating in your first week on Nutrisystem. Each day during the first week you’ll be eating one our labeled entrees for breakfast, lunch and dinner. You’ll also be adding in at least four servings of non starchy veggies each day. To keep you feeling energized and full between meals, you will be adding in a protein shake and one of our delicious snack bars, which also will be easy to find in the FreshStart Week 1 box.

Once your first week is over, and you’ve officially jumpstarted your weight loss plan, you’ll start choosing items out of the larger box. The second week of your diet meal plan is when you will start to add SmartCarbs and PowerFuels into your daily menu, along with Flex™ Meals. At Nutrisystem, we have specially designed our weight loss program to give you the flexibility and freedom you need to stay on track with your weight loss goals. Following a completely restricted diet plan can often lead to setbacks and failure, and we are here to ensure your Nutrisystem weight loss success!

So while you decide which breakfasts, lunches and dinners you’re going to flex (create your own meal!) with, or which SmartCarbs (good carbs) and PowerFuels (lean proteins and healthy fats) are your favorite, we’re here to help you out!

Sometimes this flexibility in our diet program can be slightly overwhelming. To make things as easy as possible so you can get started with your weight loss, we’ve designed a one-week sample menu that includes SmartCarbs, PowerFuels, Flex™ meals and vegetables. Even if you haven’t ordered the EXACT food items we’ve featured in the sample menu, it will still give you an idea of how to arrange your meals and add in your grocery items. Now go get started on your weight loss journey!
