So far, my favorite is the mushroom risotto, the chicken with dumplings, and the chili with beans, the flame broiled beef patty, the barbecue sauce pork wrap, the chocolate chocolate chip pudding, the chocolate crunch bar, the chocolate chip cookie, the creamy tomato sauce, the blueberry pancakes and the blueberry muffins.

I could go on and on about the rest of Nutrisystem's dishes but I'm making myself hungry ;- I enjoy eating all of Nutrisystem's foods. I do not think I have found a food that I did not like yet.

My girlfriend can't keep her hands off of my new slimmer waist ;- She is so proud of me and she thinks I look great. Who would have thought I could eat healthy food that I do not have to prepare that I actually like? I am a married man who needed to lose weight.
