How do I know what fresh grocery items to add in to my program?

Depending on which personalized meal plan you receive, you’ll be enjoying approximately 60% of your daily calorie needs from perfectly portioned Nutrisystem® entrees and snacks. To complete your Nutrisystem® program, you will need to add in varying amounts of additional grocery items including vegetables, fruit, and low fat dairy and protein choices. We have grouped these grocery additions into 3 simple categories called PowerFuels, SmartCarbs and Vegetables. Descriptions of these foods can be found in your personalized Daily Tracker, which will arrive with your first order. You can also check out our list of recommended grocery additions to learn more.
