This may sound obvious, but I know a lot of folks are probably wondering if Nutrisystem actually works. Lean Cuisine foods are available in the frozen food section of the grocery store. That being said, I still utilize diets like Nutrisystem from time-to-time, when I feel like I need a re-charge, or to quickly burn off some extra weight. Hi Deb — Thanks for visiting.
When reading the food label of any product, there are a few items of particular importance. Check the serving size and nutrient amounts. In general, the serving size for an individual frozen meal is the entire entree. If there are multiple servings per package, multiply the nutrient amount by how many servings to get the full nutritional value. In the second section of the food label, pay close attention to the sodium levels.
Some frozen meals contain the majority of your daily allotment for sodium. Lastly, check the ingredient list. As a general tip, if you cannot pronounce the ingredient, it is probably not the best for you.

Why is it that apprently the longer you cook some foods i. The more well-done the pasta is, the faster it goes into your bloodstream. Al Dente takes longer, therefore blood sugar does not spike. The longer the starch cooks the more it gets broken down and therefore, is more readily digested. Serving the pasta or potato cold has an even better gylcemic effect than reheating. Also, it would be nice if the lists had been sorted, either A-Z or lowest to highest on the GI scale.
