According to a study, conducted by Wiley-Blackwell Online Open, you can even eat more calories than women and still lose weight.

What makes the Nutrisystem for Men weight loss plan perfect for your busy lifestyle?

Nutrisystem created a meal plan just for men. The box that arrives with your food will be a little heavier than a woman’s because you’ll get an extra snack every day. You will also add in extra grocery foods that boost your calorie count. But don’t worry—you can handle it. You’ll be eating six times a day. This includes a combination of your Nutrisystem® foods and your added grocery items (think veggies, Flex meals and snacks).
