    Default Power Fuels and Smart Carbs?

    I'm confused.

    With the Advanced program, the meal planner included a grocery guide that made shopping easy.

    You could just circle things in the grocery guide, then go shopping.

    In the new meal planner, nothing is really explained. I'm not sure what I'm going to be shopping for because I don't know what Power Fuels and Smart Carbs are.

    It was a lot easier when particular food groups were explained and included a list.

    The NS website has grocery guides, including brand name foods, that you can print out to help with your shopping.

    Pandawdy, if you go to Recipe Center>Grocery Guide, you will see the list of grocery add-ins by category. There is also a link to a PDF version where you log your food.

    I also have links to the various lists in my signature.

    There is a grocery guide (such as it is) in the back of your daily planner. It doesn't give a lot of specifics, but it does break food down by type and serving size.

    I printed out the lists on the site and highlighted the things I like so when I am doing my shopping list I can just find the bright yellow items and write them down!

    The grocery guide says that many vegetables (not Smart Carbs) are unlimited. But every vegetable listed includes a portion size.

    How do I know which ones are unlimited?

    They are all unlimited. That was clarified on the website but the pdf wasn't updated.

    This category contains your non–starchy veggies (you'll find the starchy ones under the SmartCarbs category). They're packed with nutrients that your body craves and are beneficial to an overall healthy lifestyle. We recommend getting in at least four of the suggested servings sizes each day as part of your meal plan, but they’re all unlimited—so feel free to indulge!

    The brand name shopping list is pretty cool. Thanks for giving me that.

    The only thing I'm not certain on is the serving size of name brand foods. Do you go by the manufacturer's serving size or something else?
