NutriSystem Select is a new offering that improves the taste and increases menu choices by including fresh frozen foods from the Schwans food delivery service. When you sign up for NutriSystem Select you get 28-35 menu items (depending if you are a man or a woman) that you eat in addition to the regular "ready to go" entrees.

What Foods Are Available On NutriSystem Select?

Does NutriSystem Offer Select Or Advanced Especially For Athletes Or Other Very Active People?
We need to look into this. Men already get a higher caloric intake and obviously if you are burning more calories you need to eat a little more. One thing we observe is that higher quality foods such as fruits and vegetables will give one more energy as a general rule. There is great micronutrient and phytochemical concentration.
Does NutriSystem Really Help You Lose Weight?
We observe that the company has been very successful in the past in helping people lose weight, especially in the short term. But what the company lacked was a focus on high levels of fruits and vegetables which are critical to getting people off the food addiction cycle. So Select will probably improve the ability of NutriSystem to lose weight. For permanent weight loss and the odds of the best health possible one will have to graduate to a nutritional approach like the one pioneered and advocated by Dr. Joel Fuhrman. But NutriSystem is an excellent first step, especially for people who have not been successful getting started.
