I am not familiar with the products from Nashua Nutrition and would appreciate a copy. Do you know if it's permissable to upload a copy to this group? I'm not sure how to send you my email address.
I tried to send you a private message but it wouldn't let me... try sending me one with your email address.

BTW ...

- Free shipping for orders over $99.

- If your order is over $150, you qualify to receive a FREE Nashua Nutrition Shaker. You just have to add a note requesting it during checkout.

- And they ALWAYS include at least 3 free samples packets of other products for you to taste.

Some of my faves:
- Jug of oatmeal, $24.95 (for less than the price of one 7-packet IP meal, you get 20 servings!!!) Heck, that pretty much applies to all the jugs you buy with them (lemonade, 24 servings, and hot cocoa, 21 servings) / 6grams carbs - not considered a restricted meal at all, unlike the IP oatmeal.
- Chocolate Dream bars, $10.95, only 6grams of carbs (unlike IP chocolate bars that are restricted meals)
- Pancakes, $10.95, 6 grams carbs
- Omelets, $10.95, 2 grams carbs
- and Chicken soup, $10.95, 2 grams carbs

For shakes, I use the EAS Whey Protein chocolate from Sam's and the occasional Pure Protein peanut butter bars 2x/week.

As a matter of fact, I'm ordering the above now. Enjoy!

P.S.

Chocolate Dream bars taste a lot like Nestle Crunch (with crisps).

I agree with angelonadiet the IP food is rather expensive, I have been wondering also if there was something cheaper out there that I could use and achieve the same result's.

Thanks to Shrinkingsusie I will be definately be considering ordering some of the products that you have metnioned in your posts. Prices seem good and the shipping from the states to Canada isn't too bad either. With the Dollar pertty much on par now I think this would be a good investmet. I would like to read you list also susie.

Some of the Protidiet products I order from Nashua Nutrition that I really like are:

chocolate pudding
vanilla pudding
chicken noodle flavor soup
vegetable beef flavor soup
liquid concentrates (grape and orange)

I have also ordered some of these products from diet direct dot com. I like to read the customer reviews for the products before I decide what to buy. I only order things that get "rave reviews".

I would love to hear what you think of other Protidiet products like pancakes, omelets, and oatmeal. I have been afraid to try them......not sure how good they are.

That is a very comprehensive e book. I like his maintenance plan...

Hi All,

I too started out with just IP products and was having great weight loss but started ordering things from Nashua Nutrition. The bars and chocolate soy puffs are exactly the same, the maple oatmeal isn't quite as tasty as IP, but it also has only 6 g of carb compared to IP's 18. I get soy nuts there too - also 6 g of carb instead of 18. The Healthsmart Hot Chocolate (with splenda) is just delicious - I have it every night before bed - with a little Green and Black's organic unsweetened cocoa powder added to it. I have yet to try the pancakes, but they've sent me a ton of samples to try. I am no longer going to my coaches, and I lost 5 lbs. this week. It is possible to do this on your own and for less money.

I agree on the cost of the IP products...good to kickstart the program but I was going broke trying various products (and some I am not so crazy about so I have six unused packets...) and was delighted to discover Nashua Nutrition. The only thing I cannot find - my favourite IP product - is the ready made chocolate and vanilla puddings - if anyone knows where you can find an alternate please advise.
Thanks, Stell

I just placed my first order from nashaunutrition.com! 2 weeks of packets for 75.00!!! WOOHOO!

I also had my last weigh in with my IP coach this morning and and bought enough packets to last until my order gets in. I told I couldn't afford her anymore and I wouldn't be buying anymore food. She was actually very nice about it. She said she totally understood. She couldn't afford the food herself if she didn't work there. I won't be able to go there anymore for weigh ins because the the offical policy but she gave me her personal cell number if I ever had a questions or needed a boost. I thought that was extremely nice of her.

I LOVE saving money

I see this is an old thread but was wondering if anyone could send me the comparison sheet for IP vs Nashua.
