Why Nutrisystem Works

Factor In Your Metabolism

  • Gender
  • Age
  • Height
  • Weight
  • Activity

So, we've come up with a quick and easy questionnaire you can complete to help us estimate your metabolic rate (aka how many calories your body burns per day).

Based on this rate, we'll personalize your plan to provide just the right calorie range so you can lose a healthy 1-2 pounds per week—not too many to slow you down, and not too few so you can't stick to it.

Nutrient-Rich Nourishment

There's one key ingredient that separates the fad diets from the leading programs: nutrient-rich foods, aka foods that feature the most nutrients for the least amount of calories.

With Nutrisystem My Way, we've given your favorite foods (like pizza, pasta, burgers
and chocolate) a good-for-you spin with the right mix of essential macronutrients
your body needs—like lean protein, healthy fats, and slow-digesting "good"
carbs—in the proper portion size.

So you can feel good about what you're feeding your body—without the work.

Strike The Right Balance

  • Doctor- and dietitian-designed plans We turned to our experts for easy-to-follow meal plans tailored to your metabolism that map out exactly what you need to eat each day for healthy weight loss.
  • Satisfaction you can taste You'll enjoy low-glycemic "good carbs" and smaller, balanced meals frequently throughout the day to keep your blood sugar stable and curb those cravings.

Nutrisystem is backed by the science of the Glycemic Index, which measures how carbs impact your blood sugar levels.

  • Meal time mix up Feel free to switch things up to meet your needs. The key is to eat all of your meals and snacks every 2-3 hours to stay satisfied, but the "how" is in your hands!
  • Keep it fresh Adding in fresh grocery foods teaches you healthy eating habits for the future, plus allows you to try out countless flavor combinations for endless variety.
"When people 'eyeball' their own portions, they're typically off by about 30-50%—that's up to twice the calories you could be consuming."
