Your question was: Why am I getting sick from Nutrisystem foods?.

Keep trying different entrees. You'll find some that you like. The rewards of this program are so worth the "ickiness". Once those pounds and inches start to drop, you'll be singing NS's praises!..

Like sick to my stomache feeling. It's gone away now. I had the double chocolate muffin for breakfast, maybe it just didn't suit well with me...

Comment #2

I am on day three and just ate the first thing I have disliked. It is sitting in my stomach right now like a glob. But that has not been my experience w other entrees. I think the ick factor goes away when you are eating things you know you like. I am just remembering I am in this to lose weight not for a rapturous culinary experience. I did Medifast for a year. I can do this...

Sugar alcohols did me in at first, too. I had to avoid them for awhile, but apparently I am used to them now. They are most common in the pastry type items. The cookies are "safe". I did find it helped if I nuked the pastry for 15 seconds..

Here's a good article on what sugar alcohols are:

Many of the Nutrisystem foods contain sugar alcohols that don't sit well with some members. Here is a list of foods that have them. Pay attention to when you feel icky, and if you'd had one of these that day, you might want to avoid them in the future....
