Your question was: Best substitutions for Nutrisystem snacks and bars?.
Some of the balance bars are a good substitute. I bought the Balance Bar Bare Chocolate Almond Sweet & Salty. I really like it a lot. And the stats for a lunch bar are good..

And some of the kashi golean bars/rolls are good subs too...
Oh, wow! What a great reference, thank you so much : )..
I am at target weight and want to maintain. Got excited about this site you mentioned. But when I scrolled down, many of the comparisons are incredibly off from each other- for example comparing the dessert below (NS chocolate cake).
This did not copy right- but each number is a different kind of substitution stat- so Nutrisystem is 160 cal, No Pudge is 110 cal, and W. Watchers is 220..
I expected sodium to be higher for substitutions (which those who bi#@h about Nutrisystem sodium levels, should look at to quiet them down)- but according to this website we can eat any of these as a substitue for the Nutrisystem "meal"???.
I mean that would be great- but I spent endless hours trying on my own to find compatible "meals/bars" and gave up cause they were not close enough..
So help me understand this site you mentioned..

I love ZonePerfect double dark chocolate bars for lunch (especially the almond version). I also eat either lean turkey or ham on an Arnold's Sandwich Thin or Pepperidge Farms Deli Flat with a wedge of low-fat Laughing Cow cheese for lunch...
I'm currently enjoying many of the Fiber One bars. Today I'm having Oats & Caramel. The Oats & Chocolate and Oats and Peanut Butter are good too. I use them as a breakfast substitute. I usually have one along with 1/2 cup of egg beaters and some fruit...
You have to watch out for that Website. While some items are similar to the Nutrisystem foods, I noticed most of the items were not a great match at all. You can take the following to the grocery store and find items that fit within the Nutrisystem ranges. This is from Nutrisystem member M2Marsh:.

If you mean the bears;.
Amy made a lot of bears for us. Look around there are a lot of different kinds..
I just copy and paste them..
Fix so you can copy and paste.
Click ''user preferences'' or ''quick links''.
Then click ''edit options'' and way down at the bottom of the page under miscellaneous options change it to "enhanced interface" and after that you can copy and paste the bears with no problem...
I get the South Beach high protien bars that work out well for breakfast entree. They have chocolate, peanut butter, and cinnamon raisin...
I also eat the Zone Perfect Bars. I also just started to eat the Cliff Mojo bars, which are very similar in stats to most of the Nutrisystem bars. Another good thing for me for breakfast is the Kashi Go Lean cereals..
