 It can feel a bit overwhelming being at the finish line of such a big journey; but never fear – Nutrisystem is still here to guide you through it with continued support and motivation. Read on to find out more about preserving this hard-won success and gain insight on what to expect when you hit your goal weight with Nutrisystem. 

Managing Your New Weight 

Once you reach your goal, you’ll transition to a healthy lifestyle you can manage on your own or with our help! It starts with weight loss but it doesn’t end there:

Many Nutrisystem customers continue to use Nutrisystem foods for convenience and structure while they learn to manage their new weight. That means you can continue to enjoy a combination of Nutrisystem foods and your own healthy Flex meals and grocery add-ins. If you’re ready to do it all on your own, that’s OK too! 

To manage your new weight, you’ll continue to eat 5-6 times a day while following a new meal plan and calorie goal provided by the NuMi app (more on that later!).

We also recommend increasing your activity level from 30+ minutes a day to 60+ minutes a day, as research shows this is important for weight maintenance. But don’t worry, this can be something as simple as increasing the amount of time spent brisk walking. The goal is to aim for a steady energy balance! 

Your NuMi App Journal: Change to Nutrisystem Success Mode

When you log your goal weight in the NuMi app, you’ll be asked if you want to change to Nutrisystem Success mode. Success mode will provide you with a new calorie goal and meal plan that’s designed to help you manage your new weight. 

If NuMi doesn’t prompt you or if you’re not ready to switch to Success mode yet, you can always manually switch to it later. Just tap More > Settings > Plan Settings > Stage > Success. 

Once you change to Success mode, NuMi will ask you about your activity level. The options are less than 60 minutes daily, 60 minutes daily, or more than 60 minutes daily. Answer accurately, as this will help NuMi determine your new calorie goal. 

Your Nutrisystem Plan: Meal Delivery Options

As we mentioned earlier, many Nutrisystem customers like to continue eating Nutrisystem foods even after they reach their goal weight. Nutrisystem meals and snacks are convenient and can be leaned on when schedules get busy. Plus, immediately switching to cooking every meal from scratch can be overwhelming! 

Option 1: Keep your Existing Nutrisystem Plan

You can stay on your existing Nutrisystem plan if you’re happy with the amount of food you’re currently receiving. If that’s the case for you, you don’t have to make any changes to your meal delivery program or food selections. All you have to do is change to Nutrisystem Success mode in the NuMi app. This will update your meal plan, and you’ll keep getting your Nutrisystem favorites! 

Option 2: Switch to a Different Nutrisystem Plan

If you’re looking for more flexibility after hitting your goal weight, you can switch to a different Nutrisystem plan that provides less food and structure. This will give you the opportunity to prepare more healthy Flex meals on your own.

You could also switch to Club Advantage, giving you access to only the food and tools you want, delivered on your schedule. Our convenient options are available however and whenever you need them. Just place an order whenever you need to restock!

You can switch your meal delivery plan by logging in at Just go to My Account to make the switch. Regardless of which option you choose, make sure to also update your meal plan to Nutrisystem Success mode in the NuMi app for your new calorie goal.
