Before I begin, I wanna ask: Who should be contacted when a incorrect prescription is received at a Vitamin Shoppe? Wisconsin?.

My next question is: Hello everyone!.

I know someone posted here sometime ago about Frozen Dinners that are comparable to NS ones. I'm sorry, but I can't remember the website or find it again.

I am running low on dinners, and wanted to make sure I picked the healthiest ones possible..

Is anyone buying frozen dinners at the store & using those with NS?.

I already do lunches on my own, but I am thinking about doing dinners also..

Are Lean Cuisines, Healthy Choice, & Smart Ones OK to have for dinner at night?? I just discovered Fit N Free Pizza, and it ROCKS!! Is it ok to have these often at night too?.

Thanks for the help!.

Thanks so much!!.

I need to bookmark both of those pages!!.

Have a lovely evening..

Comment #2

THe main thing you have to watch out for when doing NS meals on your own is that NS meals all have more protein than you will find in other foods. I solve this problem by buying vanilla flavored protein powder & mixing it into things like yogurt...

Comment #4

All of the meals on that list fit the stats?.

I had a very difficult time when I tried dinner on my own to find any dinners that had the stats of the NS dinners.

1 found two Health Choice Steamers that did. All the other steamers had way to many carbs. Most were over it fats.

The only ones I found that matched were some of the South Beach entrees and Lean Cuisine Spa dinners. Lunches, forget it...

Comment #5

I chose my favorite NutriSystem meals (breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack), copied down ALL of the stats (calories, fats, fiber, carbs, etc.) and take that list to the market each time I go to "forage" for matching items...

Comment #6


I'm not sure how it compares with NS stats, but calories are what counts!.

I would suggest preparing some of your own meals too...frozen dinners all the time would not be so healthy. Though you would still want to make sure to get in your fruits, veggies, dairy/ protien and fat serving daily. Stir fry's would be great with low sodium sauces...

Comment #7

I disagree with the statement "calories are what counts"...all calories are not created equal, which I didn't know at all until I learned how to eat with NutriSystem! Maybe that is what works for you, but I've learned that it is the combination of good carbs and protein and fiber that helps my blood sugar stay constant, the hunger to stay at bay, and my weight to stay off. If "calories are what counts" I'd be eating Reese's peanut butter cups and french fries up to 1300 calories worth every day...

Comment #8

I was just about to comment, but as usual, Pam said it better than I could have..

Comment #9

Hi Pam, you happen to have some comparable nutritional stats (guidelines) comparable to NS for each meal?..

Comment #10

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.

From the Dietitians:.

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..


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...

Comment #11

**Thank you so much Pam!! This will help many of us I'm sure!...I'm going to save a copy...lots and lots of good information!!..

Comment #12

Not for me they don't. High protein, lower carbs and fat work for me.

I wouldn't say you couldn't tackle maintenance that way, but for me I definitely couldn't lose just counting calories. I have years of dieting to prove that statements not true..

Of course, it could work for some people. I just know that for me it doesn't work that way. I calorie counted before NS- didn't lose. I did low carb-didn't lose. But that's my crazy body...

Comment #13

I wouldn't fool around with other foods. I tried WW, Calorie Counting, Michael Thurmon, South Beach and others. Nothing worked except Thurmon but I got really sick. I have been on NS since 7/26/07 and lost 38 lbs. Feel so much better! Hope they come out with some new luch items though. I called and ordered (a la carte) some of the ones I heard were going to be discontinued so I can get into the new year with my supply.

Thanks to all of you who post such great ideas. It has really helped me stay on program!..

Comment #14

Before I started NS I was going to try Michael Thurmon. Was it too low calorie or something? I don't know much about his plan. Lots of things he says I do agree with, like 80% of losing weight is diet...

Comment #15

I tried Michael Thurmon too. I thought the exercises were a bit complicated...yah exercise less,...if you can do them! I remember trying to use a chair for some.The execises felt like more work to me..but I do think he knows what he's talkin' about..

So laurie2lose, you said not to bother with the other will you do your maintenance after you reach your goal...continue NS foods indefinitely?..

Comment #16

I plan on eating Low-Gi and sticking with 25%prot/55%carb/20%fat.

That's my problem with most frozen dinners. None except maybe South Beach are low GI and follow those guidelines. When I was eating some of the frozen dinners I found I was hungrier. So I must need the balance.

I use my own food except some dinners and desserts but do follow the NS guidelines...

Comment #17

The South Beach wraps are about the same as NS, and it's nice to eat fresh meat every now and then. Ball Park turkey dogs are lower in calories than NS turkey dogs...

Comment #18


I have a l-o-n-g way to maintenance. Just hit 230lbs this week. When I do, I will try to follow as Swedish8Fish suggests with low GI, watch the proteins, carbs and fats. Although I don't really like many of the meals, there are enough of them to rotate through the week and they are so convenient. I need to learn to doctor up some of the others to broaden my selection. We do eat out a lot with our business but thanks to the dining guide, I have been successful with that. Most places are willing to sub a salad or veggie for potatoes and I definitely stay away from the cream sauces...

Comment #19

What do you mean, to keep you on plan? Are you saying to eat the Lean Cuisine, etc. instead of ordering NS?..

Comment #20

I went to the site & it's a keeper! Thanks, Pam!.


Comment #21

This is a different site that I find really useful.


They prepare a lot of frozen meals & rate how good they taste..

The PlusSizeNow site is great for finding comparable foods & then I check it out on to see what they thought of it!..

Comment #22

Thank you somuch for that info. It is good to have for future references.

Glad I came back on to read some new postings thanks again..
