Good morning everyone!.

I just started Nutrisystem today and I'm excited! The very first Nutrisystem food I had was the Apple Strudel Scone for breakfast and it was delicious! I just had a couple questions about the foods I can eat....

With my breakfast I like to have a cup of tea (lipton regular, caffeinated or lipton chai tea) it I add 2 splenda packets and a drop of milk, is that acceptable? Also, does the tea count for any water for the day?.

Alsoit seems I have to "plan out" my meals in advance for the next day, this seems hard for do you all do it? Is raw green pepper a vegetable option? I didn't see it listed on the vegetable grocery items page.....sorry for all the questions, I want to do this right...just have about 15 lbs to lose, but I want to do this the right way and stay on plan!.

Thank you so much everyone!!!..

Your question was: Is splenda okay to use during Nutrisystem?.

Kompukat answered you. Short but sweet answers..

1. Tea only counts toward water if it is decaf.

And conversely, if you tea is caffinated, no, you should not count it toward your total water intake, but you CAN drink it..

2. You can use a drop of milk but count it as a free food or part of your morning dairy/protein.

She means - if the amount of milk you are using is less than 20 calories, it doesn't not count as part of the diet plan. You are permitted three 'free foods' per day of under 20 calories. If the amount of milk you are using is over 20 calories, count it as your breakfast dairy add in. See the amount of milk that is listed under dairy as an add it and calculate how much you need to drink or add to cereal to bring your portion up to what is required..

3. Green peppers count under bell pepper, red or green. She means, look up 'bell peppers' under vegetables to see that they are indeed included as an add in vegetable, either raw or cooked. (I add peppers to almost every dinner entre!).

Read the food lists in your diary that came in your box for all the approved add ins.

And welcome...
