Default WSJ Article on Diet Delivery Plans

Hi. I thought this was a very good comparison. The author compares Jenny Craig, Nutrasystem (fresh and shelf stable on both) and Lean Cuisine (budget alternative).

Interesting article
but I must say I think I will stick to what I am doing and prepare my own for much less then carry them with me to work or freeze them for later

I agree. I saw an ad on Monster.com for a Jenny program director - no nutrition education required - just the ability to meet sales quotas.

A friend and I tried Nutrisystem for a few months. In addition to being outrageously expensive, a lot of the food is real CRAP, esp. the lunch items (just add hot water to stuff in a cup, mostly pasta-type entrees). I've eaten many a Lean Cuisine, WW, and other cheap frozen meal as well as Kraft Mac n Cheese and other boxed junk in my time so I don't think my standards are unreasonably high. I don't see how anyone can stand to eat it continually and long enough to lose a significant amount of weight. I sure couldn't.
