Exercise can contribute to a healthier lifestyle, help you maximize your metabolism and burn more calories. Plus, it can help you control your blood sugar levels.
We recommend a simple approach to incorporating movement into your day:Choose any activity and do it for 10 minutes, 3 times a day. Walking the dog, running errands, doing yard work, riding your bike—it all counts!
With your Nutrisystem D plan, you’ll get access to our FREE weight loss resources, the NuMi® app and The Leaf®, which are packed with guidelines for beginners, activity recommendations and all the encouragement you need to get off on the right foot.
While some of the menu items may look off-limits for those living with diabetes, they’re actually healthier versions of your favorite foods, designed with the right balance of fiber-rich, low-glycemic carbs, lean proteins, healthy fats and no more than 12 grams of sugar in each meal.
These nutrients help you digest glucose slowly to prevent blood sugar spikes, while keeping you full and satisfied.
Pantry-perfect meals and snacks are our non-frozen menu items. They’re prepared and packaged using a “soft-canning” method, which seals in nutrition and flavor. That way, you get fresh-tasting foods that don’t require refrigeration, and are ready to go whenever you are!

*Unpublished analyses combining all Nutrisystem D participants from two clinical studies. In both studies, Nutrisystem D participants were provided three meals and one snack each day for three months, and attended counseling sessions. Today the Nutrisystem D program allows you to enjoy Flex meals, which are two breakfasts, lunches, dinners and snacks on your own each week, and unlimited counseling is available either online or by telephone. Insulin users were not included in the first study. Both studies were funded by Nutrisystem.
Nutrisystem D is a portion-controlled, low-fat, reduced-calorie, comprehensive program designed to help people with Type 2 Diabetes achieve meaningful weight loss. It does not treat or cure diabetes, and is not a substitute for diabetes medications. Anyone on insulin or oral diabetes medications who goes on a low-calorie diet may be at risk of hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) if medications are not adjusted. Your physician may need to adjust your medications due to changes in your diet, exercise or weight while on this program. Consult your physician before starting this or any other diet plan.
