Sean and Catherine Lowe are living proof that weight loss truly is better together. As parents of three, “The Bachelor” stars knew they needed a convenient plan that would work for the both of them.
After having her third child in December 2019, Catherine was ready to take control of her health and wellness. Sean put on some weight during the first couple months of the COVID-19 pandemic and realized he needed to start making better decisions. “We decided to go back to Nutrisystem, something we’ve done in the past and had a lot of success with in the past,” says Sean. “It’s a no brainer.”
The Nutrisystem Partner Plan has been a perfect fit for weight loss with their busy lifestyle. “Sean and I went on the Nutrisystem Partner Plan together during quarantine and I feel amazing,” says Catherine. “Losing weight can be really frustrating sometimes, so having a buddy to keep you motivated can make a huge difference. Plus, a little friendly competition never hurt anyone.”
According to Sean, it’s impossible for him to stick to a diet if he knows Catherine is ordering pizza for dinner and vice versa. “We’ve found that being healthy is only possible if we’re both in it together,” he says. “She is my accountability partner.”
Not only has having an accountability partner helped Sean and Catherine stick to their plan, research shows that dieting with a partner can actually lead to greater weight loss.
In a study of more than 3,500 couples, published in JAMA Internal Medicine,1 researchers found that when both partners joined a weight loss program and one partner had success, the other partner was three times more likely to shed pounds, too. In the study, both men and women had almost twice as much success losing weight when they did so with their partner compared to couples who went it alone.
According to The American Journal of Managed Care (AJMC),2 another study discovered that this could be because you develop good habits together: In that study, dieters with partners were better at making lifestyle changes compared to those who went solo. “Losing weight is hard. Losing weight by yourself is harder,” says AJMC.
The Nutrisystem Partner Plan is the perfect solution for two people living together who want to lose weight. It’s not restricted to just couples, you can also do it with a roommate or another family member in your household! Support, motivate and inspire each other to reach your goals while celebrating your successes along the way. It’s a built-in support system that can’t be beat!
The program provides an easy-to-follow two-week weight loss plan for two people. You and your weight loss partner get to enjoy top-rated frozen and non-frozen Nutrisystem meals and snacks for five days a week. You also get to add in Flex meals and fresh grocery items for more flexibility.
Catherine loves that she gets to choose her menu and that Nutrisystem foods are pre-portioned, delicious and easy to prepare. “I love how convenient and satisfying the meals are and they are perfectly portion-controlled,” says Catherine. “The portion sizes are perfect for weight loss and the food is craveable.”
Sean agrees. “I like the ease of it all. The food tastes great,” he says. He also enjoys that the food “can be prepared in minutes.”
To date, Sean has lost 15 pounds* on Nutrisystem and Catherine has lost 20 pounds*. “Catherine has used Nutrisystem to help her drop some unwanted pounds and I’ve used it as an easy, go-to meal that replaces any urge to order out,” explains Sean.
For Sean and Catherine, the Nutrisystem Partner Plan was just what they needed to start 2021 on the right track. “As we kick off a new year, I’m feeling so grateful for my health,” says Catherine.
*Expect to lose an avg of 1-2 lbs. per week.
