One of the great benefits of being on the Nutrisystem is access to our team of Weight Loss Coaches. Our Coaches are experts at explaining the program and coaching people through all the steps of a weight loss journey.

Nutrisystem Coaches have a tremendous amount of insight into how our programs work, where people tend to slip up, and how to get them back on track. So we asked them: What do you wish people knew about the Nutrisystem plan? Here’s what they said:

1. It’s important to follow the meal plan.

It’s true: One of the keys to weight loss is eating! Not eating enough calories for an extended period of time will not help with weight loss. Your Nutrisystem plan is tailored specifically to you, to help you get the exact number of calories and nutrients you need to maintain health and nutrition, but not so few that your body goes into starvation mode, where it holds on to energy and doesn’t allow weight loss.

You also want to feed your body enough to have the energy to burn calories. If you don’t get enough calories, you’ll feel lethargic and won’t want to move around, which aids weight loss.

Cutting out grocery add-ins to reduce calories will do more harm than good! Be sure to include the recommended number of PowerFuels and SmartCarbs in your daily meal plan.

Nutrisystem works when you eat all of the food we provide, as well as these fresh groceries we want you to add in. The fresh fruits, veggies and lean proteins will help you feel full and not be tempted to overdo it at snack-time.

2. Non-scale victories are just as valuable as the number on the scale.

Don’t think of the scale as your only measure of success. Rather, take pleasure and pride in the small accomplishments you’re seeing: kind compliments about your new energy and appearance, the fact that your favorite pair of jeans is a bit loser, the thrill of walking up a flight of stairs without feeling winded.

3. Nutrisystem is a lifestyle change.

Within a couple of weeks of being on the program, you’ll probably start to see—and feel—results. Many of our customers tell us about an increase in energy, and a new vitality. They start changing their lifestyle to take advantage of the energy, and really enjoy being able to play with their kids, for example.

4. Vegetables are not boring!

Making something like carrot fries or kale chips on the program is allowed. They are a great snack! In addition to being packed with health-giving nutrients, vegetables are high in fiber, which fill up your belly and make you feel full. The Leaf, Nutrisystem’s official blog, has many recipes that will help you prepare delicious vegetable snacks and sides. We even have plenty of unlimited veggie recipes, which means you can eat as much of them as you want!

5. Track your food and progress in NuMi.

It’s also jam-packed with information and specifically for you and your Nutrisystem plan. Plus, access The Leaf right in the app and access app-exclusive deals. It’s your secret to success!
