My Top 3
I wish I could say we used an exhaustive analysis of the available weight loss programs and can to a logical decision after hours and hours of deliberation.
But I can’t.
It came down to these points:
- It had to be a company we could trust - i.e. well known, high profile
- We didn’t want to decide and debate what was for dinner - we could each chose something out of the closet
- Cut down on shopping
- The food looked as though we would eat it
- Cost was obviously an issue
- We thought it could work
The criteria were weighted differently in my mind versus my wife’s - she was more worried that she wouldn’t like the food, while I wanted convenience as an example.
We looked an the main one’s and decided on Nutrisystem (we also looked at WeightWatchers, Jenny Craig and Diet2go).
Nutrisystem looked the best; they had an option where my wife could choose the food, and another where they would choose for me - we were both happy!
They had a coupon for where there was a week free and a discount for auto delivery. When my wife rang to order her food she discovered another promotion where if a same member of the household ordered at the same time there would get an extra week free and 10% off - which seemed like a good deal!
