How to Use Nutrisystem Protein Shakes

Nutrisystem protein shakes count as one PowerFuel on the Nutrisystem meal plan. If your plan includes Fast 5, such as Uniquely Yours Max+, Nutrisystem protein shakes are your morning snack during your first week on the program.

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, fat 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.

*As part of a healthy diet and exercise program.

**Along with diet and exercise, clinical research shows Velositol® + whey protein doubles the impact of protein on muscle protein synthesis versus whey protein alone.
