Inexpensive Ways to Try Out Pre-Packaged Diet Plans

Aug 12, 2008
Different people disagree about whether Nutrisystem, Jenny Craig, or Deliciously Yours are expensive diets are reasonable ones. No matter which group you belong to, you will want to make sure you like any diet before you commit to going on it for even a month. There are inexpensive ways to do this.

One important fact is that Nutrasystem does not require you to sign any contract. You do not have to make a major commitment in the first place. You do not have to promise to stay on their diet until you reach your goal weight or even for a certain number of weeks. That is completely up to you.

What you do have to do is to order the Nutrisystem foods one month at a time. If you could order just a few meals, you could try it out that way. Instead, you have to order a four to five weeks supply. With Jenny Craig, you have to order for a minimum deal, possibly 2 or 3 months at first.

For the first inexpensive method of trying a diet, go ahead and order the minimum amount of food. If you have the option of selecting your own foods, take advantage of that. Choose foods that you think you will like the very best. While you are at it, throw in a few foods that you might have to eat to round out your Atkins at Home, Deliciously Yours, or Nutrisystem diet, even if they do not sound appealing.

When the food arrives, eat the way the diet counselor suggests that you follow the diet. Eat a variety of the foods. Stay at it for about a week, or until you are sure you know whether or not you enjoy the foods. You should be able to tell if the food is for you in that amount of time.

If you decide that you do not want to continue with the diet, Nutrisystem does give you an option. If you notify the company after one week that you wish to send back the rest of the food, you may do so for a full refund of the cost of the weeks' worth of food you have remaining. Be aware that you must make these arrangements within 30 days of the time you get your order.

With Jenny Craig, you will have to stick with the diet for a couple of months or more. Atkins at Home or Deliciously Yours allows you to change your mind after a short time. Diets that do this make it easy to try them inexpensively.

The other way it is simple to try out the foods, but harder to try out the diet. You can find a friend or relative that has started a Nutrasystem or Jenny Craig diet and then not gone on to finish. If they have not returned their foods in a timely manner, they might be willing to sell you their foods at a discount. They might even give you the foods just to get them out of their pantry.

The problem with this method is that you do not have an official counselor to guide you through getting used to the program. All you have is whatever information you can get from the person who gives you the food. Their facts may be ambiguous or just plain inaccurate. However, if you trust them and know something about the diet, you might be able to try this. At the least, you can sample the foods. Either way, you can figure out whether you want to continue with the Jenny Craig or Nutrisystem diet without spending a lot of money.
