*NBRI Research Methodology
Seven (7) diet programs were researched independently using the same manner as a consumer would research the programs in making the decision to participate in one of the included programs. This research included visiting the websites for each of the programs, contacting each program by telephone for clarification and/or additional information, visiting centers, where applicable, and visiting various supermarkets to cost ingredients for recommended meal plans.
The process was to calculate actual costs for participating in a program for one (1) month. Specifically, calculations were based on program costs for 28 days. Grocery costs were calculated by adjusting the local prices (Dallas, TX) for the Cost of Living Index. Grocery prices in the Dallas area are .936 of the National Average, according to the ACCRA Cost of Living Index (http://www.coli.org). Weekly costs were based on 4.33 weeks per month. Recommended meal plans were included for those programs that require participants to use self-prepared meals.
The independent cost analysis study was commissioned by Nutrisystem.
