    what types of food do you have for people who cant have cheese,dairy,or chocolet

    • Matt Bradley

      Hi Elizabeth, that question would be better asked over the phone with a nutrisystem counselor. Special dietary needs like that may be best addressed by having a nutritionist provide dietary recommendations.

      Thanks for your question,
