Can I drink alcohol on the Nutrisystem weight loss program?

You can enjoy up to 2 alcoholic beverages each week as part of your plan. Opt for dry wine, light beer or liquor mixed with no-calorie mixers.

Be mindful of portion sizes:

  • Dry wine = 4 oz.
  • Light beer = 12 oz.
  • Liquor (80-90 proof) = 1.5 oz.


  • Always have your drink with a meal or snack.
  • Alcohol is a natural diuretic; be sure to have a glass of water after you drink.
  • While you can enjoy up to 2 alcoholic beverages a week, we recommend not having both on the same day.
  • If your plan includes 7 in 7, we do not recommend drinking alcohol during your first week.
