I would like to know the answer too. Anyone here know what is the answer to that question. I'll do some investigation and get back to you if I find an answer. You should email the people at Nutrisystem as they probably know..
Thank you Pam, I will give them a call...
What have you been eating with each meal? List what you eat for breakfast, snack, lunch, dinner and dessert and maybe we can give you some advice. Did you receive a meal planner with your food?..
Did they pack in a meal planner booklet with your order? It should give you a pretty good idea of the standard meal. Feel free to ask away if you have any questions...
If that dosent help Sean will respond shortly!!!.
Good luck with that!!!..
Sean is your drill sergeant. Sean is right-on. Listen to Sean..
(Sitting here thinking you guys should have met Dean Wormer. Now THAT was a no-nonsense, pull ya by the balls, make you behave NutriPoster!)..
Funny, but when we do it outside of the Men's room, we get yelled out for being mean...
I did get a new members kit with my first shipment,but never really looked through it.
.I did speak to one of the counselors and I believe I will be on track towards my goal. Thank you all for you help and I am anticipating Sean's response.
And you wonder why us guys have a reputation for not reading the directions?.
Seriously, get the meal planner out and check off all the little boxes every day for a while. That will get the pattern ingrained and it DOES work! You should be taking in around 1500 cal/day..
Welcome to NS!! Now, go read the directions..
If you have an iPhone or Android... GET THE APP. it's incredible how easy it makes the entire program...
You guys are too funny. Y'all think I'm such a d!ck. Wow..
Although it may be true that you pulled a bonehead move by starting the program without reading ANYTHING (which kept you from understanding even the most basic principles of healthy eating), I'm not going to break your balls for asking questions. Ask Gordon and Gellar, I was one lost SOB when I first started. I read the material though and I called the counselors and got a TON of advice from the guys in here. You have to be smart about it. I also ventured out of the Mens Room a lot. Trust me on this guys - most of the women seem to hate being on nutrisystem and doctor up their meals with spices, free foods and add-ins so much that is doesn't even remotely resemble a nutrisystem entre.
No excuses. They've even figured out how to make a Big Mac that's on plan..
This can be the easiest most incredible life-changing experience you ever imagined - if you follow the plan..
Read your Nutrisystem literature.
Be an active participant in this forum.
Follow the plan 100%.
The Lord loves a working man.
Don't trust whitey.
See a doctor and get rid of it .....
Like Gordon says, welcome and go read the directions lol..
What you're looking for specifically is the "Meal Planner" booklet. Has 28 days worth of checkboxes to log what you ate. The back of it has a "Grocery Guide" section (the green pages) to give you some examples of what counts as a dairy/protien serving, what counts as a fruit serving (sure blueberries are fruit, but how.
Blueberries is a serving?)..
If you read NOTHING else of what they ever mail you, read the meal planner. twice..
If by some chance they screwed up and didn't send you a meal planner (is possible, has happened to me twice in 1.5 years), then scroll all the way up to to the top of this page that you're reading.
There will be a light gray button bar at the top. Click the button that says "My Program" and there should be an online version of the meal planner. Just make sure you're looking at the right program. (Men's Basic, Diabetic, whatever you're on)..
Dean Wormer was the best...nothing wrong with a little tough love around here...
I didn't know Dean. Did he put people on "Double Secret Probation".
Mr. Blutarski. Zero point Zero...
Dean pulled no punches, he called people out, he gave them no breaks, he told it like it was, he was ruthless. He was great...
I was never lucky enough to meet The Dean. He sounds like a great man. Anyone know what happened to him? Did he make goal and go on to do great things?..
