Occasionally, I get emails from folks who ask me for a “list of grocery stores that carry Nutrisystem products.” Sometimes, I have people ask me which aisle in the grocery store that they should be looking for the Nutrisystem foods, as they’ve tried the shake aisle but only found slim fast. And, many have tried the frozen food aisle and only found the ones that are very high in sodium like lean cuisine. Occasionally, someone will think to check the body building aisle for the protein bars, but these folks come up empty too. I’ve had people go so far as to check out the health food stores and nutrition centers, but there’s no dice there either. I once had a coworker bring in the phone book and ask me to help her find the Nutrisystem clinics. There are very few of those, and none are in our town. (She had this diet confused with Jenny Craig, apparently.) The truth is, there is really only one place where you can consistently buy Nutrisystem products. I’ll tell you where that is (and why it’s cheaper than most stores) in the following article. russian grocery store
There Are Bloggers, Reviewers, And Advertisers, But There Is One Real Source: As you’ve probably guessed by now, the only place to buy Nutrisystem is from the company itself. I often have people ask me things like “if you can’t buy Nutrisystem every where, then why do I see it on tons of websites and in magazines?” Well, mostly because sometimes the company pays these folks to run their ads, but also because there are web sites that review diets or offer coupons and other such things. However, when you click on the links or coupons on these sites, you will be sent to the company’s site. You will be given the promised discount, but ultimately you will buy the product from the company itself. There really isn’t a middle man when you actually place your order. In other words, the company allows some third parties to offer discounts and such, but when you actually place an order, you are dealing with the manufacturer itself.
Many people ask me why they chose to do it this way. Wouldn’t they want their products to be in stores and easily accessible? Maybe, but think about it. There are over 170 food choices. And many of those have different flavors available which makes this actually much more items that we are talking about. There aren’t a lot of stores that would be willing or able to devote this kind of space to the product.
Is Buying Nutrisystem Online More Expensive Than Buying Grocery Store Diet Foods?: Often when I ask people why they are so disappointed that these products aren’t available in stores, they tell me that they think it would be cheaper if they had this option. In short, they are hoping to find grocery store products that are as low in calories / carbs and as high in protein / fiber as this diet’s options are, but for a cheaper price. This is a tall order, to say the least. Take a look at any standard frozen or grocery store diet foods like lean cuisine or smart ones. These meals are absolutely loaded with sodium. And many are not very low in carbohydrates. This is essential to your success because the way that this diet works is by making your body burn it’s own fat since it can no longer burn carbs (this is called ketosis.)
And, are you really saving money with by hitting the discount stores? Well, let’s see. The standard monthly package for this diet is about $10 per day with no coupons and about $8 per day with coupons. This includes enough food for 5 meals (generally three main meals and snacks / desserts. And the new flex plan is very cheap at only $230.) Again, let’s take a look at one of those lean cuisine meals. They run around $3.00 and up with tax per meal. So for 3 of these meals, you’d be out at least $9 and you are still short two meals. Many people are surprised to learn this, but you really aren’t saving any money by hitting the grocery store. Often, you’ll not only spend more, but you’re often getting foods that have too much sodium, calories and carbs.
