Hi everyone, quick 1st question: Vitamin Shoppe makeup VS. High pricey department store makeup??.

My 2nd question is: I am brand new, like today I got my stuff. But I see that in the menu preference I can't choose bread, for the extra items. Such as the hamburgers, ham patties, hot dogs and such. Please advise me on this. If I don't have to lose over 100+ pounds I can't choose bread for those items? I don't want to sabatoge this from the start and I don't see where there are answers to this for me. There is for the cereal and the 4oz of milk there should be one for this question too. Thank you in advance for everyone help....Cheers..

Here's a list of Free Foods (foods under 20 calories).

Copied from Pam.

Here is a suggested list of "free foods" that was provided by NutriSystem counselors and posted by NutriSystem on the Bulletin Boards (although there was nothing about them in the information sent out by NutriSystem).

A "free food" is anything that is 20 calories or less and you can have up to 3 per day (they don't need to be with your meals, you can have them anytime). I use SF Popsicles as a snack before bed. You can eat SF Jello topped with 1 tablespoon Free Cool Whip, which is nice in the afternoon. SF Pancake Syrup is another example (most of which are 20 calories for 1/4 cup...or Walden Farms with 0 calories per serving). Just don't have all 3 at once, that would make it a carb..

FREE FOODS LIST.

There are Free Foods that can be used on the NutriSystem plan. The term Free Foods comes from the American Diabetes Association. They are low calorie foods (20 calories or less) that can be added to the meal plan in small amounts. This minimal amount of calories will not affect weight loss, but we do recommend that they be limited to 2 or 3 servings per day if the foods have any calories at all..

Thank you Swedish for the helpful information. Today will be my first 100% percert day so I am so excited about it all. Again thank you for everything.....

Welcome aboard! Here are 3 excellent resources (Jazzman's FAQ, Ellen's tips for newbies and the transcripts of the e-classes with the NutriSystem head dietitian, Mary Gregg). Reading those first is what got me started off right...and over 97 pounds later, I still recommend them highly!.

Link to The-Jazzman's FAQ.

Link to Ellen's Information for New Members.

Link to archives of NutriSystem e-classes.

And the following is priceless: Graylady (Lynn), a very successful NutriSystem member, has taken the time and energy to collect tons of information about how to make the foods taste the way YOU like them:.

Thank you for the support I need it. It is hard for me doing this but I know I will get use to it. I look at everyone success and I know I can do it. My husband being in Iraq and now back with all the stress has I have went out of control. Now he is back all lean and mean so I really need to do something, lol. Cheers to all and thanks for the encouragement...Petra..

Comment #4

I'm sure if you stick with it, you'll do great..

It really does get easier and you'll see results before you know it! Good luck!..

Comment #5

There are some good low calorie whole wheat breads and rolls in your grocery store nowbreads that are 45 calories a slice and rolls at 90 calories. Items in that general range are what you are aiming for to have in the house for the lunches that call for bread...

Comment #6

Thank you so much ladies for you advice. I am such a carb addict and I miss the bread and pasta the meals are great. Eating the bread I will miss. Eating only bread with the meat that it is called for is tough I better try them quick to see if I can get my bread, lol. Cheers ladys and have a wonderful evening. Petra..

Comment #7

Yes, you can have bread or rolls where it's indicated. Keep the bread under 100 calories and whole wheat. I sometimes have whole wheat rolls that are 120 calories. That's what the rolls that used to come with NS were and they're permitted..

For your dairy items, try to keep them in the 100 calorie range too with 7+ grams of protein.

Here's a list of some of the stats-.

From posts of info received directly from NS counselors:.

1 Vegetable Serving = 5 g. carbohydrates, 2 g. protein, 25 calories.

1 Fruit Serving = 15 g. carbohydrates, 60 calories.

1 Low-GI Carb Serving = 15 g. carbohydrates, 3 g. protein, trace of fat, 80 calories.

1 Fat Serving = 5 g. fat, 45 calories.

1 Protein (lean) = 7 Grams of protein, 3 grams of fat and 55 calories.

1 Dairy (or Dairy/Protein) Serving = 12 g. carbohydrates, 8 g. protein, a trace of fat, 100 calories.

NOTE: I have also seen 7+ gr protein & no more than 3 gr fat, and the occassional yogurt at 120 cal - for a dairy/protein serving in the E-Classes with Mary Gregg, NS dietitian.

Free Foods = A food that is 20 calories or less... You can add 2-3 free foods to your meal plan.

You'll find lots of answers to your questions at Jazzmans forum.
