Your question was: How to eat sushi and keep on Nutrisystem plan?.
I'd say switching to sashimi is your best bet - sashimi is basically pure protein and fat, with almost no carbs, so you can eat what you want (within reason, of course). Here is a chart of calorie values for sashimi: http://www.sushifaq.com/sushi-calories.htm (scroll down for sashimi). As you can see from that chart, sushi can be a lot more caloric that sashimi, so avoiding it if you can is the best way to go..
Some tips: have edamame or a salad to start with dressing on the side. Ask for your sashimi to be cut VERY thinly. You'd be really surprised at how much more satisfying it is to have 4 pieces of thinly sliced sashimi v. 1 thick piece. Lay off the miso soup and use as little low sodium soy sauce as you can, and you should do great!..

Good to know....I'm going to a Japanese restaurant tonight. Unfortunately, the only Sushi I like is the California Rolls. I'm presently on a plateau and have found that eating regular food sometimes is a boost so not really worried about straying off plan for one night. Thanks for the info...
Yes, brown rice is better. But still remember moderation is the key. Most sushi rolls that include rice are made with mayonnaise. Always a good thing to remember when eating sushi. But fish is a great source of protein, so in moderation sushi can be a good choice..
One trick a friend of mine does is she knocks about half of the rice off of each piece before eating it...cutting the carbs and calories down or allowing a couple of extra pieces : )..
Sweet Girl!! Go ahead and eat some sushi!!! Just stay away from the one's that have sauce or mayo in them. When I eat sushi, I EAT sushi... My husband and I get a craving about 1-2 times a month. I don't pig out of course because it gets filling, but I eat it when I want it. Do your thang and get some sushi!!! You're a smart girl and you know what's good and what's not. You go girl!!!..
6 pieces (1 roll) - lunch entree.
8 pieces - dinner entree.
And add the usual add-ins. Enjoy =).
I loveeee sushi...
Love sushi too!! I wanted to have it last night but I wasn't sure how it would fit into the plan. Great information.
What did you end up getting??..
I haven't gone in a while... to be honest, this post was a long time ago hehehe : But I got some good info from it for future planning..
Mmm sushi.. I like to go like once a month.. anyone know if udon is okay to eat?..
I was told 6 pieces of sushi for lunch, 8 for dinner - but that is regular sushi, not rolls. The rolls are made different at each place, so may include cream cheese and a number of things not on NS. For lunch that means three orders of sushi (two per order) and that seems measly to me. I love sushi and don't know if I would stop there. Two orders of sushi and a roll is perfect, but not for NS...
Even with Sashimi, I'd have to save all the protein and wouldn't come close to staying on plan. That being said, it's better than cheating with a burger and fries...
