Why am I not losing weight?

With Nutrisystem (including the One-Week Reboot), you can expect to lose up to 13 pounds and 7 inches overall in the first month.* But weight loss will vary from person to person and can be influenced by other factors like diet plan, plan adherence, weight to lose, prior diet, etc. There are a few common reasons why you may not be seeing the weight loss results you want: You’re skipping meals, not drinking enough water or not getting enough sleep, to name a few.

(Check out the most common reasons the scale could be stalling in this article: 7 Sneaky Reasons You’re Not Losing Weight).

We recommend making sure you are eating all of the Nutrisystem® meals and prescribed grocery additions each day as outlined in your Daily Tracker for the best results. In addition, we also recommend 30 minutes of activity per day, or 210 minutes per week. Check out this article on 5 Tips for Busting Through a Weight Loss Plateau, which includes our counselors’ top tips.
