You and your sidekick on the Nutrisystem Partner Plan have probably already learned how much easier weight loss is when you do it with someone else. Studies have shown that people who don’t go it alone tend to lose more weight and keep it off than those who take this journey solo. The reason is simple: You help each other stick to your goals, whether it’s to eat healthier or to get more exercise, which will get each of you to your weight loss destination.

The best thing is that you can share meals, from breakfast to dinner, using the dozens of delicious recipes you’ll find on The Leaf. Many of them make two servings which can be whipped up in the time it takes to make one. That means you can have a weekend brunch meal for breakfast even on work days! Luscious chocolatey French toast, cheddar bacon omelets, a shake that tastes like your favorite cookie … isn’t that the way you’d like to launch your day?
