You Canít Do NutriSystem® Gluten-Free

By October 2, 2008

Follow me on:

In several places on the internet today, I read blog entries stating that a large variety of NutriSystem weight loss foods are gluten-free. These claims are accompanied by long lists of supposedly gluten-free NutriSystem products. From what I could tell by visiting the NutriSystem website and checking their ingredient lists, these gluten-free claims are completely false. So please, donít be taken in.

NutriSystem can be a very effective weight loss program. The company offers special products for diabetics, and hopefully one day theyíll offer gluten-free products, tooÖ but that day has not yet arrived.

Having a gluten allergy myself, I do know a diet that is gluten free and the food is more delicious than Nutrisystem. The diet is HMR. HMR has 4 gluten free meals and all of the shakes are gluten free!

When I was considering Nutrisystems, I wrote them. They advised only their puddings were gluten free. I don’t think much has changed.

The HMR plan is not gluten-free. I just took a look, and even their risotto has wheat in it. I can’t find any evidence on their site that they offer gluten-free food.
