Nutrisystem is a national strategic partner of the American Diabetes Association and the Nutrisystem(R) D(R) plan meets the nutritional guidelines of the American Diabetes Association**.
This new retail program for the Nutrisystem D weight loss kit and its expansion marks important progress in Nutrisystem's overall turnaround plan, led by Chief Executive Officer Dawn Zier, who joined the company in late 2012. Nutrisystem D 5-day kits were first made available at retail earlier this year in 2,000 Walmart stores, making a renowned diet with proven benefits even more accessible to Americans nationwide.
The Nutrisystem D complete program, combined with counseling, is clinically proven and was developed specifically for people with type 2 diabetes who want to lose weight. It is a low glycemic diet (Low GI) based on more than 40 years of research. With six eating occasions a day, it is designed to help keep blood glucose levels stable and to prevent appetite spikes.
At $44.98, the Nutrisystem D kit is an economical option for consumers looking to make the most of their weekly grocery budget. The kit includes five breakfasts, lunches, snacks and dinners.
