When you’re ready to start shedding excess pounds and lose belly fat, a program like Nutrisystem, designed by expert weight loss dietitians, is much more effective than trying to lose weight on your own. The Nutrisystem® weight loss program is the perfect meal plan for those looking to change their eating habits, but it is far from a “one-size-fits-all” weight loss meal program. You get to make lots of choices along the way to meet your exact needs, starting with three different Nutrisystem plans.

Check out our top three Nutrisystem weight loss plans:

Participants in the Nutrisystem Basic, Uniquely Yours and Uniquely Yours Max+ weight loss plans eat five to six times a day, so hunger pangs don’t slow you down. Better yet, the meal plans are specially crafted to maximize your weight loss results through a balanced diet and satisfy your taste buds while doing so. And the best part about our weight loss meal plan? The food is delivered right to your door!

Each of the Nutrisystem plans begins with our unique first week, which gives your metabolism the jump-start it needs to prepare your body to begin dropping extra pounds fast. With a lower calorie first week plan, you immediately start the journey to your weight loss goal.*

  • You will receive a guide to help maximize your results.
  • During your first week, you will eat Nutrisystem® breakfasts, lunches, dinners and snacks for all seven days.
  • You will receive seven Nutrisystem® shakes to use as your morning snack during this first week. These are packed with protein to keep you full and satisfied.

Once you’ve completed your first week, you’ll follow the week two meal plan in your guide. You get to enjoy a Nutrisystem® breakfast, lunch, dinner and snack, plus grocery items like PowerFuels, SmartCarbs and veggies.** You’ll also incorporate Flex meals and snacks made the healthy way with tips from Nutrisystem. You choose when to have two Flex breakfasts, lunches, dinners and snacks throughout the week. Our free guides and recipes make it easy! Enjoy cooking healthy at home with family—even relax with a glass of wine. Check out all of our Nutrisystem plans here! >
