By: Ava Alderman: I sometimes hear from folks who are really interested in the nutrisystem plan, but they aren’t sure which plan would be best for them. They look at the website and they see a number of different plans with different price points and they aren’t sure which is going to be the best value for them.
Think about it this way. Nothing is a good deal if the you don’t like the food and it goes to waste. Or, you’re not saving anything if you have success the first month but can’t afford it the second month and then lose your momentum. To avoid this from happening, I’ll try to discuss the various packages available to help you to determine what might be the best plan for you.
If You Want To Get In As Cheaply As Possible And Don’t Mind Someone Else Choosing The Foods For You: There are some people who care most about the total cost out of their own pocket. In other words, they are fully aware that they are going to have to at least buy some groceries for this so they are most concerned about the bottom line when it comes to dollars and cents. They want for that number to be as low as possible and they are completely fine with being given foods off of the “favorites menu” because they are not particularly picky. For these folks, the basic plan might be a good fit because it is by far the cheapest at $259 before coupons.
If You’re Less Concerned About Money And Are Most Concerned About The Best Tasting Foods: There is another category of dieters who are most concerned about their experience on the diet. More than anything else, they want to be able to have a good day to day life on the diet so that they stick with it over the long haul and are successful. To them, the taste and the variety of the food is very important. And, they would like the be able to chose their own. For these folks, the new “uniquely yours” (which used to be called the select plan) is probably best. Because although it is the most expensive plan, it allows complete customization (you can chose your own foods) and it gives you access to the frozen gourmet foods. It does include counseling and free shipping. (Plus, you can always use coupons – see the specials listed on the right side of this blog.)
If Cost And Customization Are Equally Important To You: Some people still want to get out of this as cheaply as possible. But they do not warm up to the cheapest basic plan because they do not want to give up being able to choose their own foods. For them, the core plan might be the best of both worlds. It is an inexpensive or cheap plan (at $279 before coupons) but it also allows you to chose your own foods so most people see it as a nice compromise between buying the most expensive and the cheapest nutrisystem plans. You can save money on any of these plans with specials listed here. (Right now they are offering free shakes with discounted fast five on all of the plans.)
