The Nutrisystem D Plan for Safely Losing Weight with Diabetes

For a diabetic, a weight loss program that both works and does not affect glucose levels can be a challenge to find. With all the recent studies that suggest weight loss (for overweight or obese diabetics) does improve blood glucose levels, there are a number of diabetics looking for a safe weight loss system.

Nutrisystem D Plan

Roberta Anding, MS, RD/LD, CSSD, CDE is a clinical dietitian and certified diabetes educator at Baylor College of Medicine, as well as a national spokesperson for the American Dietetic Association. Along with Bruce Daggy, PhD. Dr. Daggy, who is vice president of research and development at Nutrisystem and adjunct professor in the Department of Nutrition, Food, and Exercise Sciences at Florida State University believe that the Nutrisystem D plan, which was developed for diabetics, could help people with diabetes lose weight.

How Nutrisystem D Plan Works

“The Nutrisystem D program, developed specifically for people with diabetes who want to lose weight, is based on the proven science of the glycemic index, which measures how the carbohydrates in food affect blood sugar levels.” This is a low glycemic diet that integrates good carbohydrates into the meal plan, along with foods that are low in fat and high in fiber," said Dr. Daggy. "When combined with fresh foods like fruits, vegetables and low fat dairy items, these foods break down slowly to help stabilize blood sugar." The portion-controlled meals in the Nutrisystem D program were developed in compliance with USDA national guidelines for people with diabetes who want to lose weight, and they even include a variety of foods typically considered off limits for people with type 2 diabetes.”

Conclusion

The Nutrisystem D plan is supported by a three-month, randomized, controlled clinical study, funded by Nutrisystem and conducted at Temple University School of Medicine. During the study, Nutrisystem D participants lost as much as sixteen times more weight than the people in the control group, while lowering blood sugar levels and A1C levels.
