Default WS with foods from the grocery store?

Anyone do this? Buying from WS / Diet Direct isn't an option for me - the funds simply aren't there. I can however buy things regularly available at our local grocery store, as long as they aren't too pricy.

Has anyone done this? I looked today and found a few items I think should work and come out okay, like the Jillian Michaels whey powder makes a shake identical to the WS pudding shakes.

If you do this - what do you use to sub for WS foods? I'm really looking for a sub for the dessert item and the snack bar - everything else I've found something that works already.

Also, does anyone know of a way to get the WS guide without buying a package?

And yes I'm aware this isn't doing proper WS, but my Doctor has approved it and is monitoring me.

You can download the pdf of the eating plan on the website.

Pure Protein bars would probably be comparable. I would check out Genisoy crisps for a savory snacks. Kashi has higher protein cereals.

Basically the plan can be summed up to this:


1 Protein serving, cooked weight 4oz very lean (140 cals/serving) or 3 oz lean (170 cals/serving)

2 vegetables (approximately 25 calories/serving)

1 fruit (approximately 60 calories/serving)

1 starch (approximately 80 cal/serving)

2 optional (<20 cals/serving) (1 of these can be a dairy) (dairy 50/cal a serving)

7 meal substitutes (3 meal replacements, 3 protein supplements, 1 bar)


Most of the meal subs have between 70-150 calories and 12-15 gm of protein.
