Nutrisystem supports you in so many different ways as you work toward your weight loss goal. Along with a wide variety of delicious food options and guidance from professional dietitians, you also get the handiest weight loss tool available: The NuMi App, which helps you keep track of your progress and makes it easy to plan your meals wherever you are.
Simply logging what you eat, drink and do each day actually increases your chances of success, according to a study by Kaiser Permanente, the healthcare company. (Click here to read the science behind why logging what you eat increases your chances of losing weight! >)
The research found that people who consistently recorded what they ate lost twice as much weight as people who didn’t keep track. When you use the NuMi tool to log your daily water intake, your activity level and weight, you’ll have insightful information that helps you understand when you’re hitting key benchmarks and when you’re facing obstacles.
The NuMi app would be worth using simply as a food diary, but it helps you continue progress to your weight loss goal in other critical ways, too. It’s even more valuable when you download it to your smartphone rather than simply using it on your computer.
