Is the Nutrisystem diet healthy?

The Nutrisystem® weight loss program meets, or in many cases exceeds, most of the recommendations set forth by the government in the 2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans. Our plans provide an average of 1800-2200 mg of sodium per day, which is comfortably within the target of less than 2300 mg per day for the general population.

A critical new point to these guidelines was a more restrictive sodium limit for certain populations. In response to these new recommendations, we have made a commitment to further reduce the sodium content of our weight loss programs over the next few years. In the meantime, you can contact your Nutrisystem Weight Loss Counselor by calling 1-800-585-5483, option number 2 to customize our current programs to meet lower sodium targets, as well as targets to support other health goals well as targets to support other health goals.
