I got a quick question: Can I get a clarifying shampoo at the Vitamin Shoppe?.

I also got another question: For breakfast you're supposed to add a carb, a dairy, and a fruit..

Why aren't good cereals listed under carbs? Seems to me you could add some good cereal to your NS cereal, use more milk, and have your carb and dairy. Or add Raisin Bran and you're done..

Actually, NS could just have a package of cereal with dried fruit where you add milk and you're done. But I guess they want to make all the breakfasts similar so they set it up where you have the cereal with milk and then add more dairy, carbs, and fruit...

Your question was: Can I get a clarifying shampoo at the Vitamin Shoppe?.

Sorry, I didn't make my question clear. I'm not comparing other cereals to NS cereals, I'm comparing low-sugar, good grain cereals, which are not listed under carbs to add, to carbs you can add like a slice of bread or some pasta. If you look up the nutritional info, it's very similar, I'm just curious why they don't list cereals under carbs to add..

NS endorsed carbs: multi-grain bread, glycemic index = 48; pita, glycemic index = 57..

Non-endorsed cereals: All-Bran, glycemic index = 38 - 42; Muesli, glycemic index = 43 - 56..

There are very few cereals that can be classified as low-glycemic, but there are a few...

Perhaps you could ask a dietician on the dietician forum. I would think some cereal would qualify as a good carb...

Comment #2

Hello, I think that part of the confusion may be that men get to add extra carbs for various meals while us women do not. Enjoy!..

Comment #3

Yeah, that's right - ask the dietitians or maybe some of the guys in the Dan Marino forum can help you out better...

Comment #4

I believe that list is not exhaustive any way, there are lots of things missing from categories. You can add it under your own food...

Yup...I agree, that's what my 2 cents is on this post too. Just because something isn't listed, doesn't mean you can't have it, just make sure you're checking your ingredients/nutrient stats and it's matching up to what is listed. For example, I have lite sausages for breakfast with my NS pancakes in the morning...they're not listed in the guide, but they match the protein requirements (fat, etc.) for NS protein. I also like clementines for fruit - they aren't listed either. www.calorieking.com will help you figure out some of the stats for things (like fruit) that might not be readily available...

Yes, it's about the special formulation/balance and the low-GI carb approach. Look at the actual nutritional information on the grocery store cereals you are talking about, in terms of the carb(and sugar)/fat/protein breakdowns. The whole idea of this program is to make it easy for people so they don't have to figure all this stuff out every day - the food is formulated so that you just follow basically the same instructions every day and you're good to go.

There are a couple of cereals on the grocery shelves that could replace the Nutriflakes - Kashi Go Lean is one. Special K Protein Plus is close. But there aren't that many.

A lot of people do NS on their own but it's more time consuming to figure everything out properly. You can add protein powders to things to bring those values up. After a couple of months if you find that you totally get it and have the time/inclination to do your own shopping, weighing, measuring, and cooking, it can be done. But if you want to give NS a shot to do what it is supposed to do (and will do if you work it properly), try to follow it 100% for at least your first month...
