  1. Is there a way to tell if a premade salad dressing is fix friendly?

    1. Hi Sam! You’ll be looking for added sugar and oils. Bolthouse dressings are usually pretty good!

  2. Which Tessemae dressings are approved ? The green goddess is my favorite

    1. Hi Kristin,

      I don’t keep a current list, as they change often. If you’d like to send me a picture of the ingredients for one of the dressings I can help :)

  3. Hi! My name is Sherri. I have had my containers & book for years! I felt overwhelmed, had no idea what to put in containers. I just figured out my calorie intake which is 2896?!? I am 286lbs. Scared to eat that many calories 😳😂 I really appreciate your dressing recipes. That will account for one container? I am so ready to get this started! Thanks again

    1. Hi Sherri! You’re in Plan F. If you don’t already have a food list, you can sign up for the Fix newsletter here to download one:

      Containers depend on the dressing you’re talking about – most are 1 orange container (fill the orange container and count it as your orange for the day).

      It may seem like a lot of food, I understand–but it works because of the macronutrients involved. I think you’ll see it’s a bit different than 2800 calories of “regular’ food. Trust the process, use the food list, and you’ll be surprised at the results!

      You can find more info about plan F here: There is a free meal plan there too :)
