Can I drink alcohol on the Nutrisystem weight loss program?

Alcoholic beverages, which tend to be high in empty calories, are not conducive to your weight loss goals when consumed in excess. Therefore, we recommend that you limit, alcohol consumption while on the Nutrisystem weight loss program.

If you decide to have a drink, choose wisely since beverages vary in alcohol, sugar and caloric content. Wine, which contains about 100 calories per five ounces, and light/low carb beer, which contains approximately 95-100 calories per 12 ounces, are lower calorie choices. We recommend having no more than two alcoholic beverages a week.

As you move toward the Transition and Maintenance phases of your weight loss program, you can reassess your intake.
