It's obvious Nutrisystem is big on Glycemic index and major on fiber content most everything Nutrisystem has fiber!.

But for years they used to say to weigh 150 you should eat 1500 calories 1800 for 180 etc...Is that a myth now?.

I haven't seen anything on Nutrisystem about calorie counts! Should we have some kind of idea? to how many calories to consume each day!..

Your question was: Calorie counts per day on Nutrisystem?.

NS is not a calorie counting program, so there isn't a emphasis on calories. However, for the women's basic program you will average 1150-1300 calories a day...

Comment #1

The Womens programs average between 1250-1350 calories per day. Women's Basic & Silver -1250; Diabetic & Vegetarian -1350 (plus or minus about 100 calories)..

NS does not change calorie intake for how much you weigh. Their only distinction is if you have more than 100 pounds to lose, you add carb to your plan until you have less than 100 pounds to lose...

Comment #2

If you are following the recommended Meal Planner, and you are a woman looking to lose less than 100 pounds on the Women's Basic Plan, the Dietitians have said that you average 1250-1350 calories per day...

Comment #3

NS has moved the range upwards a little since the newest foods are slightly higher calorie. The stats I quoted just above this is what the dieticians are now saying...

Comment #4

Thanks, I saw where they moved the 1100 to 1150, but didn't see that they moved it higher...

NS does the calorie counting for you by your following the program. If you have a need to know the specific calories you take in duirng the day, the online tracker will do it..

This link provides a method to tell you how many calories you must take in at current weight to maintain it and calories to lose weight, all based upon your specific information:.


This is basically what it said about me:.

These results will help you to know how many calories you need to maintain your current weight, and the number of calories needed per day to achieve your goal weight in a healthy, steady manner..

You need 1798.9 calories per day to maintain your current weight without exercise..

You need 1662.8 calories per day to reach your goal weight slowly and maintain that weight without exercise..

If you reduce your current caloric intake to 1298.9 calories per day you will lose one pound per week without exercise..

If you increase your current caloric intake to 2298.9 calories per day, you will gain one pound per week..

I know from personal experience that if I start hitting 2000 cal a day, I'll gain weight..

It is also giving the ballpark figure of calories needed to lose which is about the same as Nutrisystem figures...

So if you deduct your exercise....then that's your net calories for my day?.

I log everday my food and exercise and my weight!..

Comment #7

If you log your food and exercise online with the Nutrisystem tracker, it will give you the net calories based upon type of exercise you select. For me, it is hard to select type of exercise so I quit entering the info for exercise. I like to do a variety of DVDs...

Comment #8

Nice post! I like knowing that there are tools out there to help when I start to maintain...although I'm not there yet. Thanks for sharing!..
