What are flex meals?

The Nutrisystem weight loss program includes flex meals—meals you make on your own using our easy guidelines—to help teach you healthy habits so you can maintain your weight loss after you reach your goal.

We do ask that you participate in the flex meals on your plan for the best results. We’ve found that members who regularly planned out flex meals were more successful when eating off of the plan and were more comfortable with preparing their own meals when switching to maintenance mode.

You’ll have one flex lunch, dinner, breakfast and snack and each week. Try one of our quick, delicious recipes, or enjoy a meal out at your favorite restaurant. Find recipes and eating out tips at The Leaf!
