    Default Comparable Grocery store foods...

    Just curious because I am NOT ready to start flexing but what food items that you have purchased in the store are comparable and can act as substitutes for NS foods? I hear a lot on these boards where it is hard to find foods that meet the NS criteria.

    It's not that hard to find things that are equivalent to NS. Here's a link to a Canadian Grocery List. Many of these products are also available in the US.

    You are looking for items that match the range of stats for the NS food items. Michelle (m2marsh) has made a table that she updates regularly with those stats. You can find her latest version in this thread http://boards.members.nutrisystem.co...d.php?t=217724.

    Ideally, you are looking for choices that are near the average for calories, on the low end for sodium, on the high end for protein, and ideally do not have high GI ingredients (sugar, white flour, white rice, as primary ingredients).

    This month, you will be able to purchase certain Nutrisystem in the Kroger chain of grocery stores. It was announced on May 1st during the earning call:

    Our initial launch includes 12 individuals SKUs of healthy snack, shakes and breakfast items. We're launching this full line exclusively the Kroger, the largest traditional grocery store chain in the United States.

    Nutrisystem Every Day! will be distributed throughout the corporate chain of 2,200 stores beginning later this month. We are very excited about launching with such a great partner that is embraced our new line and understands the potential of the Nutrisystem brand that we tell.

    This is awesome!

    The line of NS foods that will be launched in the grocery store is not for weight loss but rather intended for maintenance.
