ImageThe foundation of the new NutriSystem Nourish plan is largely based on the consumption of Low Glycemic foods as a source of carbohydrates. Foods that have a low G.I. level break down slowly in the body and keep blood sugars stable. High G.I. foods break down at a fast pace and cause insulin spikes, which lead to the storage of fat. Low G.I. foods are high in protein and fiber, promoting satiety and boosting metabolism.

NutriSystem offers six different programs that cater to specific wants and needs. There are the Women's Program, Silver for women, Men's Program, Silver For Men, Type II Diabetic Program and All-Vegetarian Program. There's even a NutriSystem for Kids now available. The pre-packaged meals are already sorted out into proper portion sizes so there's no need to worry about overeating.
