Were There Any Diet Program More Cheaper but As Good As NutriSystem ?
One day, one woman asked me this “is there any diets that are as good as NutriSystem with as many good food choices that are cheaper or cost less?” And my answer will be folloing below :
Diets Comparable To NutriSystem: NutriSystem combines a lot of attributes of many popular diets. It’s low in calories, carbs, and high in protein and fiber. So, while you could compare this diet to many others, very few have all of these attributes at once and very few offer so many food choices.
For example, you get a low amount of carbs on Atkins, but you have to eat meat and eggs all of the time and you’re rarely allowed sweets and cereals. You get a low amount of calories on weight watchers, but you have to count them and many of the foods have too much carbs or sugar to successfully put your body in ketosis. If you wanted kind of diet like this, you need to have low calories, low carbs, high protein, high fiber, and healthful fresh foods. You could educate yourself on how to prepare these foods, but you would have plan for buy, and prepare the groceries. I actually doubt that this would cost you less than the prepackaged diet and it would be a lot more work.
The True Cost Of NutriSystem: If you’re going for the basic diet plan, which means eat five times a day, the base price of this is around $300. But, there are always specials and coupons running. Generally, you’ll either get 2 – 3 weeks for free or as much as $100 off (if you’re willing to try auto ship.) This brings the cost down to about $8 or so per day. If you’re figuring the cost per meal, this is around $1.60 each, which is quite good, in my opinion.
So, Is There Any Decent Alternative?: I think the answer to this really depends on your criteria in what it considered “good. But, I truly believe that when you consider gas, groceries, and the cost of what your time is worth, NutriSystem is actually quite cost effective and convenient, but this is going to be individual for everyone. Not many diets let you eat chocolate cake and tacos for $1.60 or so per meal.
