Your question was: How many calories allowed per day with Nutrisystem?.
Thanks so much Pam! Yes, I am on the Basic Plan. I would like to take off 30 to 40 lbs. I think that's my problem, I'm not eating enough of the free foods. I'll give that a try!.
Spread out your meals...have a little bit every hour..
Let's lay out a typical day:.
7AM Breakfast Cereal/Milk.
8:30AM Greek Yogurt (90 calories, 15g protein, 0g fat) and 3/4 cup blueberries.
9AM Herbal Tea or Coffee.
10:30AM Celery Sticks.
All morning: Sugar Free Gum.
Noon: HUGE SALAD with 100 calories worth of chicken breast, low or no calorie dressing (Note: My salad bowl is a huge mixing bowl...I would use the kitchen sink, but it isn't portable.) Spinach, Mixed Greens, Cucumber, Tomato, Walden Farms Dressing (zero calorie), a few spritzes of WishBone Asian Dressing...I'm in heaven..
1:30 Chocolate Lunch Bar and Coffee.
3:00 Celery, Jimaca, Radishes (relish tray to nibble) with a Diet Coke.
4:30 Cottage Cheese and Strawberries mixed with a bit of Sugar Free Cheesecake Pudding mix...died and gone to heaven!.
Tea, Coffee or Water.
Need I go on? This can go from 7AM til 10PM, easily!.
Sugar-Free Popsicle before bed..
See why I'm never hungry?..

Pam is right. Spread out your food. I start early. 5:00 am egg, Nutrisystem breakfast choice, coffee w/light soy milk. 9:00 coffee w/light soy milk, 10:00 banana, 12:00 NS, large saladlettuce, tomato, celery, onion, cilantro, cabbage w/1TBS non-fat dressing. 2:00 dairy/protein snack (usually yogurt for me), 5:30 NS, veges.
6:30 sugar free jello, Nutrisystem desert (usually one of the chocolate bars). Drink water all day long. Every time I am hungry I first drink a big glass of water then eat as above.
I got serious about Nutrisystem mid-December. I needed to loose 30 lbs. I have lost all of it as of mid-March. I am sitting at 125 lbs. YEA!!! I am 56 years old and didn't think I could ever loose the middle age bulge. I am so looking forward to summer!! Good luck to you and know the system works..
