Ramona lost
71 lbs.*

With Nutrisystem D, I never felt hungry or deprived. Because of my weight loss, my doctor has changed my medication. He continues to monitor my progress, and has been extremely pleased. I never knew that eating healthy could taste so good!"

Jim lost
103 lbs.*

I feel great! My diabetes medication dosages have dropped so much, I am almost off of them. I enjoy cycling and doing things that are physical that used to just wear me out in minutes. I just love life again."

Alice lost
84 lbs.*

Nutrisystem D worked because it taught me so much about my eating habits. I learned how to make good food choices and to have proper portion sizes. Plus, so many fad diets don't teach you what to do to maintain your weight once you reach your goal. Nutrisystem D does."

How can I eat foods like pizza, pasta and ice cream when I have diabetes?
