I was wondering if Turkey Bacon was allowed for the L&G. I bought a pack yesterday and had 2 strips last night crumbled on my salad. Does anyone else do turke bacon? Any ideas on what else I might try doing with it. Then I was wondering if I made a good choice this morning in buying it. I did find it on OTHER when charting my meals. But it went by ounces not slices so I'm not sure how much is allowed either.

I love turkey bacon too so will watch for the response...

I'm watching too. I would love to crumble some on my salad, ooh! in my green beans... I'm sure I can find other uses. I LOVE BACON! *drool* Hmm. That could be part of my pre-MF issues, eh?..

Comment #2

Oooh me too with the watching for the answer.....but...tell the heck do you cook turkey bacon so it crumbles??? Mine always turns out like shoe-leather. Maybe it's the brand? Fill me and peace.....

An earlier post by Nutrisystem on turkey bacon said: Bacon is not recommended on the program. It is a little high in fat and sodium content. That was a few months ago and I always wondered if they read that it was turkey bacon, not regular..

However...I HAVE used it on occasion when I was just dying for a piece of bacon. I make sure I count it (Louis Rich brand has the per slice measurement or I use the one I defined in Private Foods). I then make sure I eat light in other areaspoultry or fish, no added fats/oils, etc. and my daily numbers, while a little on the high side for sodium and fat, still came out ok.

I don't really recommend having this often (I froze my slices on a cookie sheet so I could then bag them and they would stay separate) as it probably does NOT help in the weight loss department, but for an occasional treat...yep, I do eat the turkey bacon...

I think another NO-NO for bacon is the high salt content. This could also effect your water retention and create a temporary rise on the scales for us scale-aholics who insist on weighing everyday...

I also went back and read the post from a month back. They do say no to bacon. Due to high fat & sodium. The brand I bought was Oscar Mayer and here are the stats:.

1 slice:.


Total Fat=3g.



Trans Fat=0.

I didn't think that was bad. I won't have it to often. But I also found a post for a LEGAL BACON CHEESEBURGER that I'm dying to try. I'll post the answer from Nutrisystem when I get one. I didn't give them the stats though wonder if it will make a difference.
