My 1st question is: Looking for Nutrisystem Dreamsicle recipe? Thanks for any answer. My other question... When I started I was having a hard time getting enough to eat. I started spreading my food out to make it through the afternoon..

So I moved some breakfast items into the afternoon and that has helped tremendously until last week..

The past several days, since Thursday or Friday I guess, I'm back to being hungry all the time again. I've bought vegetable trays to snack on but they don't fill me up..

Last night was rough, I finished dinner around 6pm and from 7pm until bedtime my stomach was growling. And I'm back to getting hungry in the afternoon between 2 and 3..

Breakfast (7:30am):.

Nutrisystem breakfast entree.

Morning snack (9:30am):.

Oatmeal (carb).

Lunch (11:30am):.

Nutrisystem lunch entree.

2 cups of vegetables.

Dairy or protien.

Afternoon snack 1 (1:30pm):.


Nutrisystem dessert entree.

Afternoon snack 2 (3:30pm):.


Dairy or protein.

Dinner (5:30pm):.

Nutrisystem dinner entree.


2 cups of vegetables.




Nutrisystem dessert.

Suggestions? Do I need to call a counselor?.

I am exercising. I'm doing a running training plan 3-4 times a week and I hike 1 or 2 times on the weekend...

Good question... I dunno what is the answer to that question. I'll do some research in Google and get back to you if I discover an good answer. You should email the people at Nutrisystem as they probably can help you..

Yes I am drinking the water. Well, I'm taking it in with Crystal Light. I have about 4-5 per day in a 16oz water bottle..

I didn't put the snack veggies in my list above because I'll snack on them when I'm hungry, not at a particular time...

Comment #2

Try some filling protiens like ms sausage, eggbeater omlets, boca burgers, a chicken breast ( I bought a bag of frozen ones..4 oz 110 calories..(10 calories over) 1.5 g fat 23 g protein), 2FF hot dogs, a can of tuna etc.....

Comment #3

One of my afternoon proteins is the Jimmy Dean Turkey Sausage crumbles. 1/3 of a cup falls within theNutrisystemguidelines...

Comment #4

When I get that feeling, it is usually a sign that the scale numbers are getting ready to drop. Keep eating those salads and drinking that water and I agree, try some foods higher in protein...

Comment #5

Try the water with a little bit of a strong flavored juice such as lemon or cranberry added (just enough to add flavor) instead of the artificial sweetener in the Crystal Lite for one or two of those bottles. It could be the sweetener making you hungry. The body can't really tell the difference between those and sugar so it can trigger cravings...

Comment #6

You can double that and have 2/3 cup, if I'm reading the nutrition facts correctly. I would check all of your protein servings and make sure you are close to the 100 calorie limit..


Comment #7

LOL, the beard and hairstyle kinda give it away...

Comment #8

What guidelines are you using? You can have up to 100 calories, but no more than 3 grams of fat. You have to have at least 7 grams of protein. However, the more protein grams, the better. If you max out your protein servings, you will have better luck with hunger...

Comment #9

Raw veggies don't fill me up. Yesterday I was STARVNG so last night I cooked up a batch of veg soup with low sodium beef broth and used frozen veg and lots of cabbage and some onion. The bagged coleslaw works great - no chopping. You could even the browned turkey sausage to add flavor. I had some in the afternoon and I'm not flying to the kitchen to make dinner tonight...

Comment #10

I made that my sig before I put my picture up...

Comment #11

I thought it was in the Food Talk and Tips that someone said 1/3 of a cup fits the protein guidelines...

Comment #12

2/3 cup is 90 calories, 4 g fat, and 11 g protein. Also has 500 mg sodium which is quite high. That is 1 g too high in fat, but the other stats fit. 1/3 cup would not be much protein (5.5 grams and the minimum is 7 grams). So you'd do better with 3 ounces of deli turkey...

Comment #13

I didn't see a protein in the morning, nor a fruit. The counselor told my DH that if he is exercising alot, he needs to add another protein or two...hard proteins, not milk. Chobani plain ff yogurt with some splenda and some fruityum..

Turkey breast has fewer calories so you can eat more of it to get to your 100calories. If you are feeling hungry at night, eat a free food for a snack and being a guy, can't you add another carb at night? DH eats graham crackers, or triscuits with ff cabot cheese melted on top. He has lost 50lbs and I have lost I know that what we are doing is working! Good luck!!!..

Comment #14

I do get a carb at night and that's either black beans, corn, or brown rice...

Comment #15

1 Dairy/Protein Serving = up to 100 calories, 3g of fat or less and a minimum of 7g of protein..

1 Vegetable Serving = 5 g carbohydrates, 2g protein, and 25 calories.

1 Fruit Serving = 15 g carbohydrates, and 60 calories.

1 Carbohydrate Serving = 15 g carbohydrates, 3 g protein, trace of fat, and 80 calories.

1 Fat Serving = 5 g fat and 45 calories.

The dairy says what is max and what is min, but what about the rest? For the fat serving is that at least 5g of fat or no more than 5g. If it's suppose to be exactly 5g then is there a range of within 1g, so 4-6g of fat? Same question can be applied to the others..

I don't have my meal planner handy but I thought it suggested 1oz of turkey meat for protein, perhaps I'm remembering incorrectly...

Comment #16

That's the minimum allowed.Nutrisystemseems to insist on confusing everyone by putting that in the Meal Planner. You can have up to 3 oz of deli turkey and still fit into the stats..

I wish they would fix it so people would know up front. They should post a minimum and a maximum...

Comment #17

That is the minimum size. For example, I buy Butterball low sodium turkey from the deli. According to Butterballs website, 2 ounces of turkey is 50 calories. so I can have up to 4 ounces of turkey but I usually stay between 2.5 and 3 ounces...
