I got a quick question: What is the best self-tanner you can buy at a Vitamin Shoppe?.

I also got another question: Ok, this is my third day on NS and so far I've been very pleased with the foods. I have a question though on how you fit in breads or any of the other recommended grocery items but aren't on the daily checklist. For instance they recommend whole wheat bread, where does that count on your daily amounts? How do you know how many servings your allowed each day?.

Also, what do you do if you go out to eat at a restraunt and follow the NS guidelines....how do you count that? Do you just try to add all the foods individually as other food items and just don't check off any of the NS items? Is there a certain calorie limit for those times?.

Pam is right. If under 100 lbs to lose, you use whole grain bread (or roll or muffin) where the entree calls for adding it. My favorite bread product to use is Brownberry Health Nut bread, and I also like Thomas English muffins that are the whole grain variety...

In regards to restaurant eating, I take my ICBNB spray in a sealed zip lock or I put the ICBNB spread in a 2 ounce tupperware container. I also do the same with my fat free or low fat salad dressin g. My DH and I eat a ton of salad so I have about 7 different types in the fridge. Baked chicken is good to order as are steamed veggies. Some times I take my bacon bits (25 calories for a tablespoon)...

Comment #2

The items on the recommended grocery list are items that are recommended to be used in the appropriate spots on the checklist. So you would only eat whole wheat bread if your meal plan called for a low-GI carb. As others have noted, as a woman with less than 100 pounds to lose, your meal plan doesn't have any low-GI carbs on it...

I also take my salad dressing in a little gladware 3 oz. container. You can also take a serving of craisins to add to the salad & throw a dessert/snack in your purse as well. Order a salad & tell them to hold the bad stuff & maybe some baked chicken & veggies. I used to be scared to go out to eat, but after 3 months, I can always find a way to stay on plan & enjoy the time...

Thanks for the advice but I think I'm a little confused....when would it call for a low GI food (besides like tacos, hamburgers, sandwiches etc. for your meal) or is the low GI food only for someone who is over 100 lbs overweight? If my plan doesn't have any low GI foods on it then why would it give you the examples in the recommended foods in my package?.

As for eating out, I plan on going to Cracker barrel to eat. Does anyone have any other suggestions for there? Would breakfast or dinner be better to have? I'm thinking of having a breakfast omlet or something. Is that ok or should I stick to salads, soup and chicken?..

Myrinda: The grocery lists are for EVERYONE...these planners aren't personalized for each plan. The men, people over 60, women with over 100 pounds to lose, someone 20 years old with 10 pounds to lose...we ALL get the same lists. THAT is why the examples are there. Best not to try to overthink the plan....

Cracker Barrel is a death trap to any diet on the face of the earth...arghhhh. Fat, grease, butter...oh, my. Tis best to tread carefully. I order a side salad with NOTHING on it, take my dressing with me, and a lunch bar. And, I hold my breath so I don't inhale the fat, grease and butter as I walk in...LOL.

Be well...

I have a question does anyone use Salad Spritzers? I have seen them advertised and actually just found the Wishbone website. It looks like something that would be very easy to slip into a purse and use at a restaurant...

Comment #7

The corn muffins are my downfall there. I only go to CB when I'm taking a day off the plan, meaning not often. I just can't fit CB into the plan...

Comment #8

Yes, the Salad Spritzers are ideal. I've used them since they first appeared on the market shelves...

Pam,.

I got a salad spritzer but I'm not sure how many spritzes to use. Help....

Thanks,..

As a woman with under 100 pounds to lose, you don't add bread to your program UNLESS the entree itself calls for a small roll or tortilla (i.e. hamburger, chicken breast, veggie fajitas). Then you add a whole wheat roll, bread, pita, english muffin, etc., of less than 120 calories..

Here are the Nutritional Stats for a typical day for a woman under 60 years old with under 100 pounds to lose:.

Here are the stats for the Nutrisystem Women's weight loss plan but they are just an FYI, you don't have to worry over counting to make sure you meet these numbers if you just follow the plan you will fall with in range..

Women.

Calories* 1200.

Carbs* 180g (55%).

Protein* 80g (25%).

Fat* 23g (20%).

Fiber* 23-26g.

Sodium* 2200mg/1800mg.

Cholesterol* < 100mg.

*= approximate values depending on your choice of entrees and grocery additions for that day..

This is copied from previous posts by Graylady (Lynn):.

Carbs = anything 120 calories or less, but try to stay around 90-100 cals if possible.

Fats = around 45 calories per serving.

Fruits = around 60 calories per serving.

Dairy/Protein = anything with at least 7g of protein 3g or less of fat and 100 calories or less per svg.

NOTE: one 8oz svg of yogurt per day with 100-120 cal is OK.

Veggies = about 20 cal/svg 1/2 cup cooked to 1 cup raw minimum of 2 servings a day.

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

And if you are preparing your own food here are the average values:.

Breakfast Entree = 150 cal, 2.75 g fat, 23 g carb, 10 g protein.

Lunch Entree = 170 cal, 3.25 g fat, 26 g carb, 10 g protein.

Dinner Entree = 240 cal, 5.25 g fat, 28 g carb, 20 g protein.

Dessert Entree = 110 cal, 3.25 g fat, 12 g carb, 10 g protein.

Daily with additions average: 1200 calories, 80 grams of protein, 160 gram of carbs and 27 grams of fat. Fiber averages 20-30 grams. The recommendation for sugar is no more than 10% of your total calories. (Note: These are the stats for women with under 100 pounds to lose and under 60 years old.).

1 gram of carb = 4 calories.

1 gram of fat = 9 calories.

1 gram of protein = 4 calories.

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 nutritionist.

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

This information was gathered from postings from the Dietitians and by studying the transcripts of the e-classes:.

They are 1-2 calories per spritz (depending on the flavor). 10 spritzes seems to do the trick for me (I squeeze lemon over the salad, too)...but just stay under 20 calories (free food) and you are fine...
