What are Nutrisystem Protein Shakes?

Our Nutrisystem ProSync shakes are designed to help maximize results while making the diet easy to maintain. Women and men both receive Nutrisystem protein shakes with their order. These are included with your first Nutrisystem plan shipment and are also available for purchase in A La Carte.

These shakes are your morning snack during your first week on the program. Going into week two, they count as 1 PowerFuel.

If you’d like, you can also incorporate other shakes that you enjoy into your Nutrisystem plan. To find out what your grocery additions counts as on the plan, take a look at the Nutrition Facts label and evaluate the calories, protein and fiber. This will help you determine how many PowerFuels, SmartCarbs and Extras it will contain.

1 PowerFuel is between 80 to 120 calories and has at least 5 grams of protein. It may also be 80-120 calories with at least 8 grams of total fat (with no more than 4 grams of saturated fat).
1 SmartCarb is between 80-120 calories and has at least 1 gram of fiber.
1 Extra is between 10-35 calories per serving. You are allotted 3 Extras per day.
