I am on NS too. Been on for about a week. I joined on line rather than e-bay cause you do get food lists, diary and personal counciling if you need it, also chat line etc.
I have a friend that has lost 50 pounds already (6 months) and she looks great.
You can have sugar free syrup with your pancakes. You can eat veggies and fruit.
I am a night worker so my meals are always mixed up and I usually eat my breakfast before going to bed and my supper when I wake up. Doesn't matter when you eat them, as long as you eat 1 of each everyday. Don't have two suppers one day, and two breakfasts the next. I each every day.
I have a salad as well, and fruit for my snacks.
What did you pay on ebay? I pay 273 a month and that includings shippping and it is delivered to my door. If you join you get to pick waht you want to eat, don't have to chose the ones you don't and you get a week free food the first time. If you are interested let me know and I can help you.
Good luck and happy losing
