About This Item


As revenues have fallen in recent years, Nutrisystem has begun experimenting with retail options. For instance, in the company inked a deal to sell prepaid program cards at Costco for its traditional day home-delivery program. The marketer in May of launched "Nutrisystem Everyday" at Kroger stores, which included bars, smoothies and bakery and breakfast items, according to a recent report by market researcher Packaged Facts. But that program has been phased out as Nutrisystem shifts its retail strategy to focus on multimeal plans rather than individual entrees.

The new strategy is being pushed by President-CEO Dawn Zier, who joined the company late last year after a year career at Reader's Digest Association, most recently as president of the company's international business. Zier hinted that the turnaround effort might even include expanding the brand into non-food items. The company appears to have little choice but to seek a radical revamp.

Competitor Weight Watchers has fared better. But free, do-it yourself online apps have given all fee-for-service weight-management marketers fits.

Nutrisystem's Walmart program was first tested at a small number of stores. Packaging includes an image of long-time spokeswoman Marie Osmond. Meals include items such as a cinnamon bun bar, red beans and rice, and rotini and meatballs.

Zier said in a statement. A spokeswoman said advertising plans are not finalized, but that she expects it will be "heavily promoted. So, in a sense, they also have an a-la-carte menu to choose from. As far as I know, the Nutrisystem kits and other menu items have to be purchased online, but you can have them shipped directly to your home or to your nearest Walmart store.

Obviously, these kits are going to include more food than the 5-day versions, but just like the other kits, you get full access to the Nutrisystem counseling program. To buy these kits you can buy a special card from Walmart, and then they can be redeemed on the official Nutrisystem website. They typically arrive at your home within about 4 to 10 days after you make the purchase.

With all of this in mind, I personally think the best and easiest route to go is to sign up for a plan directly through Nutrisystem — especially if you have more than 10 pounds to lose.

As of today, Nutrisystem is offering some amazing discounts for TheDietDynamo. Does it actually work? The 5 Day Nutrisystem Kits sold at Walmart offer a quick an easy solution for proven weight loss.

They are also a great option for people to try Nutrisystem without committing to a full month's worth of food. Notify me of new posts by email. Leave this field empty. The 14 Day Starter Kit.
