Why am I not losing weight?

On the standard Nutrisystem plan, you can expect to lose one to two pounds per week. However, please note that weight loss will vary from person to person and can be influenced by other factors like diet plan, plan adherence, weight to lose, prior diet, etc. There are a few common reasons why you may not be seeing the weight loss results you want: You’re skipping meals, not drinking enough water or not getting enough sleep, to name a few.

(Check out the most common reasons the scale could be stuck in this article: Are You Really in a Weight Loss Plateau? 10 Reasons Why the Scale is Stuck! >).

We recommend making sure you are eating all of the Nutrisystem® meals and prescribed grocery additions each day as outlined in your NuMi app for the best results. In addition, we also recommend 30 minutes of activity per day, or 210 minutes per week.

Did you eat an extra Nutrisystem meal or snack during the day? Call a Nutrisystem Weight Loss Coach to review your meal plan in more detail.
