What is typical weight loss on Nutrisystem?

Clinical studies on the Nutrisystem program show that the average customer loses about 1-2 pounds per week. This is considered healthy and sustainable weight loss, which is exactly what we want. However, general science says that even losing a half a pound per week is good!

Typically, weight loss is quicker in the beginning as the body adjusts to reduced calories. Over time, your body wants to fight back.

Remember, our bodies like to stay in balance and that can make it more challenging to lose weight the longer you are on the plan. That doesn’t mean you should give up or that the plan isn’t working anymore. That’s exactly what your body wants you to think! It just means you recognize it and need to make some adjustments.

If you are using the NuMi SmartAdapt feature, your plan will work to prevent these plateaus. Contact a weight loss coach to help you bust through these challenges and keep you on the path to reaching all your goals.
