Nutrisystem Cost: Basic vs Uniquely Yours

(SCROLL DOWN FOR EXACT PRICES ON ALL 2018 NUTRISYSTEM PLANS.)

Nutrisystem plans range between $278.99 (basic meals, weekends not included, and committed to auto-delivery) and $590.75 per month. If you want the frozen meals (they taste better) rather than just the "shelf stable" options (sealed food pouches with no refrigeration necessary), you must opt for the pricier Nutrisystem Uniquely Yours plans.

Other Food Expenses
Nutrisystem only sends you enough food for 6 days each week. You are responsible for buying your own food in the supermarket for the 7th day, so this is an added expense. Also, you must purchase your own fruit, vegetables and dairy in the supermarket to supplement the Nutrisystem food.

Nutrisystem for Men Plans contain one addition snack per day than do the Women's plans, and cost about $60 per month more.

Nutrisystem Pricing is Confusing and Complicated!

There are many different plans for men and women, with different prices. All of the plans may be purchased with the cheaper Weekends My Way option, which only supplies the Nutrisystem food for 5 days per week.

What makes describing the Nutrisystem price list difficult, is that some of their marketing jargon makes it even more confusing! Such as "Nutrisystem Lean 13" (now called "Turbo 13").

Nutrisystem Turbo 13 is an update of the Lean 13 which contains the Turbo TakeOff box.

The first week of almost all of the Nutrisystem programs is called "Nutrisystem Turbo 13." It is promoted heavily, so people often ask how much it costs, not realizing that it is already included with almost every Nutrisystem plan, as it is the first week of almost every Nutrisystem plan.

Nutrisystem Turbo 13 Cost

You will be paying for the first 4 weeks of whatever program that you choose, which will include Nutrisystem Lean 13 as the first week.

Now before we discuss all the different Nutrisystem plans and their prices, lets quickly cover a cheaper option that you can use with ANY of the Nutrisystem plans to lower its cost somewhat. It's called "Weekends My Way."

Nutrisystem Weekends My Way (cheaper option)

With the "Weekends My Way" option, Nutrisystem provides food only for 5 days per week, and the dieters themselves are responsible for preparing their own food for the weekends (called Flex Days), hopefully preparing their weekend meals according to Nutrisystem's recipes and rules which Nutrisystem calls "Flex Meals."

Customers can sign up for "Weekends My Way" whether they are purchasing the Core Plan, or the most expensive "Uniquely Yours" Plan.

Nutrisystem's lowest plan with the Weekends My Way option is the cheapest way to do Nutrisystem.

On a 28 day Nutrisystem purchase, Weekends My Way provides delivery of 20 breakfasts, 20 lunches, 20 dinners, 20 snacks, plus Nutrisystem TurboShakes. To be clear, this means that 5 days out of the week, customers stick to Nutrisystem foods and then on the other 2 days, called "flex days," they prepare their own meals.

You can sign up for the Core plan and choose Weekends My Way with auto-delivery at a 4-week price of $249.99. However, if you do not wish to sign up for auto-delivery, the cost for "Core" Weekends My Way is $384.60. Remember, only the more expensive "Uniquely Yours" plan contains frozen meals (one per day). The other plans are "shelf-stable" food only. The problem with auto-delivery is that if you want to cancel before the second month, you will likely be stuck paying substantial penalties.

If you sign up under the Uniquely Yours plan and choose Weekends My Way, then your delivery will include frozen food items as well (28 frozen meals for the 4 week period). The cost with auto-delivery is $289.99. The cost for a one-time delivery is $446.14.

Listed below are all the current Nutrisystem plans, along with their prices and what they include. The women's plans are listed first, followed by the men's plans.

Nutrisystem Monthly Auto Delivery Option

Each of Nutrisystem's plans gives dieters the option of ordering with or without monthly Auto Delivery. The upside of Auto Delivery is that it gives you a discount on the overall price. Nutrisystem has made the discount so large, that most people find they have no choice but to order the Auto Delivery option.

AUTO-DELIVERY WARNING

With the auto-delivery option, you have only 2 weeks to ask for a full refund. If you cancel within the first 14 days, you can return the remaining food for a refund, minus the shipping costs. If you cancel after the first 14 days and prior to paying for your second shipment, your payment method will be charged $99 by Nutrisystem for the auto-delivery discount received on your first shipment.
