    The protein bars are the right calories but look at the rest of the stats. What about sugar (carbs) and fat. They should all match NS stats.

    How do you do that - add fruit to the protein shake? Do you blend the NS protein shake powder with water and fruit in the blender?

    You're going to have to call or e-mail Nutrisystem. They're not going to call you.
    What if the Hokey Pokey really is what it's all about?

    The Hokey Pokey Clinic - a place to turn yourself around.

    I was addicted to the Hokey Pokey, but then I turned myself around.

    And I don't think posting your phone # on a public board is something you want to do.

    Hi ShirleyAnne,
    It looks as if the protein bars will fit as a PowerFuel (general guidelines: 80-120 calories and at least 5 g of protein). Can you post the stats for the smoothies? Some varieties are higher in carbohydrate and low in protein.
    Fruit (SmartCarb serving) can be blended into a protein shake.
