That's a good question. I'm not sure what is the right answer to your question. I'll do some investigation and get back to you if I bump into an good answer. You should email the people at Nutrisystem as they probably could assist you..
Hi. I'm new to the program too. Just received my product last evening and began today..
Also thought all snacks were provided. Maybe I misunderstood about the "desserts" being different than snacks. It has worked out fine for me today but hope I can keep it up as I look for snacks to have on hand..
Good luck to you. Hope you'll stick with it because I know it works. The trick to any program is training ourselves to eat healthy. Think Nutrisystem helps a lot with learning portion control and the right things to eat..
Have a great day! :0)..

Thanks for the info. There's a good list in ourNutrisystembook that I'll keep in my purse. That way, when I go to the store I'll have a good reference for what to buy. Really don't see any problemjust have to be prepared...
Hi, there! I am pretty new to the program (4 weeks down!), and I had the same reaction when I got my book and saw that I needed to have food on hand. I was like, I have to buy vegetables!?!.
What I did was organized my meals as I was going to eat them. Then I wrote a grocery list of the snacks and add-ins I was going to need. I bought a variety that matched up with my meals I'd planned for the week, but only enough for the week so I would not waste a bunch of food..
There is a saying: if you fail to plan, you plan to fail. I find that to be totally true with theNutrisystemprogram..
Good luck to you all!..
Hey Michelle, I was amazed at your list. I get to have ostrich? and octopus? AND squid? Cool (LOL). I really was amazed at the list though...
Sure! All in the same day if you'd like!..
