Oh, that sounds delicious. I dont know if I requested that freebie but I'm going to look for it next time I go grocery shopping. Let us know how it tastes.

What was in the kit, Ohio?

I signed up for Nutrisystem last month -- not to lose weight, but so that I'll always have plenty of food in the pantry without having to go to the grocery store every week or so. I had also signed up for it right after my stroke in 2006 and it was a lifesaver for the first year after the stroke.

The food is tasty. I ordered turkey/dressing, zesty cajun chicken/sausage/rice, rotini with meatballs, loaded baked potato, tuna salad, red beans/rice, chocolate sandwich cookies (like oreos), etc. It was delivered the day before yesterday and I've already had the turkey/dressing, loaded baked potato and red beans/rice. OMG. They should advertise this as being a good choice for people who cant get out -- the sick, handicapped and elderly.

I was on Nutrisystem back in the 90s. It really worked. All I had to supply was fresh veggies and dairy.
The food really is good.

I totally agree that the company is ignoring a large population (pun not intended). People who can't get out would love this because it is convenient. The food is tasty and much better than Wise Company food. I even like it better than my personal favorite Mountain House.

Right, Ketabcha. The food is awesome. It's still very difficult for me, 7 years after the stroke, to walk very far. I can manage to get through the veggies/fruit area of the grocery store but then my right leg starts giving out on me and I always have to cut my grocery trip short. I dont know why I didnt think of Nutrisystem before now, especially because it was so easy to have good food when I was buying Nutrisystem immediately after the stroke.

Two breakfast bars, a snack bar, a carbohydrate counter, and meal plans.

I didn't wait for breakfast to try one of them. Although, after reading the nutrition label, I was shocked to discover how many carbs the bar had in it -- more carbs than protein, which is not recommended if you're following a low-carb food plan.

Interesting. I thought Atkins was a low-carb, high-protein plan.

Allegedly. That's why I was surprised that the meal replacement bars had such a high carb count. I know they're not meant to be consumed on a daily basis, but still ..
