Here are 10 reasons to make The Leaf your one-stop, go-to weight loss blog:

1. Our weight loss tips are backed by science, not fads.


Just like our Nutrisystem programs are designed by dietitians using the science of nutrition, the tips on The Leaf are based on real evidence for real results. Whether it’s giving you a grocery list that fights belly fat, teaching you the benefits of your phone for weight loss or just offering simple food rules that bring big changes, the tips on the Leaf have real science behind them and explain why you’ll see better results by following.

2. The Leaf has hundreds of easy recipes.


One of the most important parts of Nutrisystem programs is Flex Meals, meals you prepare on your own or order at restaurants. Preparing, ordering and eating Flex Meals doesn’t just help you lose weight. It provides a learning experience and prepares our members for life after Nutrisystem when they reach their goal. But you don’t have to be a chef: The Leaf offers hundreds of recipes for Flex Meals that are delicious, on-plan, and so simple to make. Browse our flavorful, fun and healthy recipes!

3. We have valuable advice from people just like you—our Nutrisystem Success Stories.


Lots of people succeed with Nutrisystem, losing 10, 20, 50 and even 100 pounds or more. These people have been through the same struggles, challenges and setbacks that every person on a weight loss program has felt—and they still succeeded! They’ve shared their stories and tips with us and it’s all available here on the Leaf. If you’re a yo-yo dieter, read Mei’s story of finally sticking to a program that worked for her.
