Welcome to Reddit,
Wish I had the answer to that. I know the meals are little carbier than if you made them yourself, but I feel it can be with the convenance. I haven't decided if I'll buy it again. They have the worst kind of sugar alcohols in them. Nutrisystem and Atkins are companies to help people in losing their weight.

Nutrisystem Protein Shakes Overview
Let me guess MLM doctors: Did you or your wonderful doctor actually look at the ingredients? Mainly because they are cheap and taste great. However I recently read the dangers of soy protein and especially sucralose and have stopped taking these all together. My doctor told me that shakes are great but look for more natural ingredients….
Looking at Shakeology and Yoli now. I actually like a couple of them, they're tasty. The mexican-ish ones are good. Stay away from the italian pasta bake.
High on carbs, you get like 4 noodles and the you just end up eating globs of solidified cheese. Haha I didn't even buy that one, I figured I'm not going to get a good, frozen, low carb pasta. The crustless pot pies were good. It is my understanding the shakes are not. I'm not a big strawberry fan so I can't say from personal experience. Yup, the Dark Chocolate Royale ones are my favorite and I usually have one for lunch every other day or so. Haven't knocked me out of ketosis, haven't slowed my weight loss, and haven't made me ill.
Also gets rid of my chocolate cravings. I drink them quite a bit. The taste is so-so. Not great but not bad either. I also buy EAS carb-control shakes. Each pack lasts me about a month since I drink one for breakfast most mornings. I didn't know you could buy them on Amazon. I got to check that out. They're pretty expensive at the grocery store. Are they artificially sweetened? If so, it might be they use maltilol, a sugar alcohol that spikes your insulin almost as much as sugar does, and can throw you out of ketosis.
I stay away from all Atkins products for that reason. Staying in ketosis no problem and they are very low calories too.
Keeps me full for hours before lunch: I drink a shake every morning too! Too lazy to do much else for breakfast. So glad other people love them. I keep my shakes in the fridge and grab-and-go. Occasionally I'll have one if the carb cravings hit me hard, but I try not to, since then I have less for breakfast ;.
I drink the Premier Protein ones now! Just out of curiosity, have you tried the Vanilla or Strawberries and Cream? I'm tempted to try them, but I'd like to know if they're any good in comparison before I buy a whole pack from Costco. Don't make my mistake! I bought the Strawberries and Cream from Costco thinking it would be delicious. It's very bleh and I was super annoyed with myself for buying a case without trying them.
I haven't tried the Vanilla Like, as much as from a whole large avocado. Plus you sweeten them yourself so no worries about sugar alcohols if you'd rather have stevia, although I generally don't use either. Although that's more like a whole meal. Reading through the comments it seems like you might be looking more for a snack than a meal replacement, in which case ketobars. For reference, this is my MFP log for yesterday.
I've been a bit lax on MFP so before yesterday, the last month or so is empty, but that's a pretty good indication of what I aim for. Atkins offers some meal kits, bars, lift protein bars and drinks, frozen meals, shakes, and sweets. Unlike Nutrisystem where we can eat our favorite food, there are some foods you have to avoid like pasta, bread, potatoes, chips, candy, and cookies because Atkins diet limits the carbs intake.
