NutriSystem has come out with a new program called NutriSystem D that is designed to help people lose weight, get their glucose to the right levels and set the stage for a long term path to reversing this dangerous condition.
The most important aspect of an effective diet approach is that it 1) gives hope to people though some early wins and 2) sets the stage for long term dietary change. NutriSystem accomplishes the first objective in a simple way- the foods are familiar and taste good. You are most likely to succeed when you are doing something familiar.
NutriSystem accomplishes the second objective by offering a broad array of tools and support systems that come with the NutriSystem Diabetic meal plan for free. While it makes sense to start with foods that are familiar, you will need to adopt a diet very high in vegetables and fruits over time. Far more than the standard "food pyramid" which will not really help you reverse Type 2 diabetes unless you are very lucky.
If you have been recently diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes, you can read a summary of the three most important steps you need to take. It is important to understand that NutriSystem can make the first step very doable, but you are going to need to follow steps two and three, no question.
