How many calories should I eat to lose weight?

The standard Nutrisystem diet plan provides between 1,200 to 1,500 calories per day, which puts you in the range to lose a healthy, sustainable average of 1 to 2 pounds per week. But we do all the counting for you—so you can lose weight without the worry of tracking calories, carbs, or points.

If you work out vigorously or have more than 100 pounds to lose, contact our Weight Loss Coaches, as you may require additional calories from SmartCarbs and PowerFuels to achieve optimal weight loss results.

Are you on a personalized Nutrisystem program? Your calories will be personal to you and based on your age, gender, and activity level. Check out the articles below to learn more about calories on your program:
