Before I ask my question, I want to ask: What is the most effective face cleanser or wash for acne and black heads you can get at a Vitamin S?.

My main question is: I am new to Nutrisystem and have looked at some recipes on the site - what is a "free food" and how many do you get?..

Thanks for the list, that definitely helps.

I'm new, on my 3rd day, and a very picky (BAD) eater. I chose NS because of the pastas and carbs I can't stand salad, most veggies or fruits, but .... I've quickly learning the tricks from these boards about making the foods better (luckily as a bad eater, I don't have high standards for taste, so that helps overall, not commenting on the foods here.).

One quick question I've noticed 2 apparent themes in the foods so far.

1) they're dry.

2) the canned pastas are VERY tinny, how can that taste be "cut"?.

Can't WAIT until there's ice cream on those free lists, ha ha...

Adding a serving of ff ricotta cheese (added protein) does 3 things to the canned (or any) of the tomato based meals.

1. Makes them much more filling.

2. Cuts the bitterness/tartness/tin taste of the sauce..

3. Makes them creamy...

I have looked for rolls for the hamburger and chicken and cannot find rolls that are whole wheat and only 80 calories. I have only shopped at safeway and wondering if anyone knows where I can purchase rolls and also whole wheat pita bread. Thanks Denise..

I shop online at Sami's Bakery in Tampa FL. They have dinner rolls that are the same size as the NS burger, and they are delicious. Great stats and they are dense...not like diet hamburger buns..

I also get flax and millet lavash there for my sandwiches Can't beat those stats, and they are filling..

The shipping is reasonable, and it usually takes 5 days for me to get my order in PA. Everything freezes well, so I order 1x/month!..

I have found whole wheat hot dog buns and hamburger buns at Super Fresh if you have one of those? Go online and look up your local grocery stores most all of the larger chain stores have websites. That way you don't have to be tempted by going into 5 different stores looking for items and seeing all the other items not on the NS meal plan right now. Hope that helps...

Walmart has the whole wheat pita pockets in the deli area- they are half a whole pita and yummy! They last a long time in fridge!..

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..


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..
