That's one of the few I haven't tried. And now that I'm on SP I use their diabetic menu as a guide...and try to cook more meals at home...trying for a lifestyle change. I've been sort of "off" frozen dinners for about 6 mos. Don't miss them at all...oh, except the individual pizzas. With them you know exactly what you're eating.

So, I've resisted the temptation of those NS ads on t.v. ...tho the claims always look sooo good.

Good luck and Keep on Sparking!

I tried Nutrisystem last year. It took a year to get my triglycerides and cholesterol back to normal levels. When I asked about the carb overload in the program their response was to send me a list of ingredients. emoticon

Nutra System D is still high in carbs. The Weight Watchers and Lean Cuisine meals are pretty good, though. Just check the labels.

You can check out the Lean Cuisine site for guidance. They do provide the Nutrient label info for their products.

Cheers,

I think I will just buy some healthy choice and lean cuisine frozen meals. I have never been fond of frozen meals because of their high sodium content. But at this time I can't be standing up too much to cook because I have to be with my leg until my surgery next Thursday. But I will load up on these for the week that I will be down.

Now I have another question..This is because I will be sending someone for them...
What are the best choices...Those that you consider to be the best for diabetics. Lowest in carbs. I emoticon for it's support. Thank you all.

That's a common complaint with that diet: you learn nothing about changing your habits so it does not work long term like Spark.

Some ideas since it is expensive: there are lots of Lean Cuisine and Smart Choice meals that come frozen and can be microwaved. I expect that they are cheaper as well. Another option: you can stock up your freezer now with healthy meals that you cook yourself then reheat in the microwave.

Good luck!

I tried NS but did not continue on the program because I found I was allergic to some of the ingredients used in the meals. NS uses a lot of soy, however I did not find all the foods offered on the plan pleasing. You do have to round out the meals with fresh veggies and fruits. On the positive it is convenient and the portions are controlled. But the weight lost will creep back once you stop the "diet".

I did it years ago but then I went back to school and it was too expensive for a student. It worked though.

I'll be going into surgery and won't be doing much, so I thought that I would try that diet.
I like the fact that you just microwave. But also I'd like to know if anyone has actually tried it and the food is actually low carb and not too much sodium as other frozen meals.
