Thanks again for nutrisystem facts. It is nice to know that there are those out here who know things!!..
What if the yogurt is only 6 oz. and has 120 calories? I have been using a Greek yogurt like that...
That's fine. My yogurt is only 6 oz. as well. It seems like that's how large they make the individual servings now. I remember years ago they used to be 8 oz...
Do you mean replacements if you are going to flex your meals? If that's what you mean, check out this thread..
Where is this information found? I don't see it in the booklet NutriSystem sent. I'm getting really confused!!!..
It's nice that the dieticians provide this info...however my Mom who is on the program, and refuses to own a computer - doesn't have the access to this info (I find stuff & print it off for her). She thought what's in the book is the entire plan, no exceptions - and of course she hates to bother peopleI wonder why Nutrisystem doesn't print the above stats in the meal planner...I understand things can change, but clearly the planners are updated regularly - and it could fit on one page if organized well! (hint hint)..
Here is my take on it:.
The "average" NutriSystem customer is on the plan for 9 weeks (per their public report to the stockholders), loses an average of 20 pounds, and wants it easy and simple. No counting calories, no watching carbs or fats or protein, no nothing. Just get the box of food, follow the recommended grocery items as listed in the Meal Planner, don't try to get fancy with the foods or add-ins, and go on their merry way..
Then there are the rest of us, the ones who are here for a long time (like me, who had over 100 pounds to lose) and those who continue on maintenance following the rules/guidelines/principles. We are the ones who want to know the minute details of the plan and, sometimes, analysis it to death.
For those who want to follow the Meal Planner and lose without thinking about it, it works..
For the rest of us, we have the Dietitians, Counselors and each other to learn from..
Just my experience...
I still wish Nutrisystem printed more info in their meal planning book. Based on the limited info it provided, I purchased cheese I thought would suffice. After seeing the add-in information from the dietitian (that you graciously provided in a different thread - thank you!), I bought the wrong thing. Watermelon is listed in the book (limited), but I can't log it an as a fruit in my online planner. There are little things that are frustrating, but I'm excited to be on the plan. I'm sure as I maneuver around the site, it will be easier to understand....
Excellent observations Pam...I just assumed EVERYONE wanted to know all the nitty-gritty details!! But really, the simplicity of the plan is one of the reasons for it's success. After a few months, both my mom and I want to know MORE so we can start implementing the priciples into "real" life - where everything isn't conveniently labeled in Blue, Green, Red and Pink..
Thanks for responding!..

I find that using the section where you can detail your own items is useful in these instances. The only set back is having to look up the nutritional information to enter in the online planner...
