All About Nutrisystem for men Canada
Nutrisystem is an American weight loss and meal delivery system that has become very popular. They have been in business for over 40 years. Oh, and they ship to Canada using Purolator (who is owned by Canada Post) quickly and inexpensively. The website is geared equally towards men and women and it does have an exclusive men's section.
The Nutrisystem program is based on three main concepts:
1) Portion control - they do the counting while you do the eating
2) Balanced nutrition - feel nourished, full and satisfied
3) Frequent meals - up to six meals a day so you never feel hungry
This program is great for anyone who does not enjoy grocery shopping or cooking. For a set amount, you will receive enough nutritious meals and snacks for a month (28 days). As a member, you also have access to telephone counseling, a number of online tools for meal planning, food tracking, fitness and activity tips and the Nutrisystem members forum. Best of all, these meal plans work out to between US$10.71 and US$13.04 per day!
Nutrisystem has three plans for Canadian men to choose from: Basic, Core or Uniquely Yours. There are also versions of each plan tailored for diabetics. Are you a vegetarian? Nutrisystem has a stand alone plan you too!
Nutrisystem Canada Men's Core 28-Day Plan
This is the most popular plan. You can choose between three levels within the Nutrisystem plan: Basic, Core and Uniquely Yours. All of these programs provide 28 full days of breakfasts, lunches, suppers and two snacks (yes, men get 2 snacks). With the Core program (the most popular) you will be able to select from a menu of over 100 different menu items. The Uniquely Yours plan also gives you a great selection of pre-made, ready to eat meals.

How does Shipping Work?
At first glance, you are right to wonder if shipping food from the USA is not going to be too expensive. Don't worry, they have thought of that too. Purolator is the cheapest way to ship to Canada. There are no surprises, and no duties or brokerage fees - just one flat shipping fee.
Canadian Shipping rates:
All auto-orders: $19.95 (another great reason to go with auto-order)
All non auto-orders: $49.95
There is one little hitch... Unfortunately, because frozen food only stays frozen for 6 to 8 hours, even Purolator can't get it to you that quickly. So, frozen foods cannot be shipped to Canada.
Canadians have many diet systems and programs to choose from but don't believe everything you read. Many advertisements that you read are for American programs that do not serve Canada.
Eating right can still be tasty and enjoyable. Depending on which weight loss program you follow, you would be surprised what you are allowed to eat. Sticking to a diet may be easier than you think!
You may never look like one of those ripped guys who spend all their time at the gym but with a little work you can look and feel better. Plus, you can do most of that work at home without a gym membership.
