Both services offer options specially designed for vegetarians and diabetics, and also provide for vegans, coeliacs, and dairy allergy sufferers.
Although both Nutrisystem and Wonderslim offer a wide variety of products, many of Wonderslim’s options are meal replacement shakes, while Nutrisystem focuses more on solid foods. They offer three basic meal plans: Basic, Uniquely Yours and Uniquely Yours Ultimate, with different options for men and women. Additionally, they provide a separate Men’s, Diabetes and Vegetarian Plan.
Additionally, Nutrisystem delivers dinners, while Wonderslim gives a controlled list of groceries a customer can use to cook dinner in line with their diet plan. Included in the Essentials, Classic and Complete plans, Wonderslim offers options for men, women, nursing mothers and diabetes sufferers. They offer a combination of meal replacements, meals, and ingredient delivery for dinner preparation from a set menu.
Given that Wonderslim relies a lot on meal replacements for their options, our preference here is Nutrisystem.
The Quality of the Ingredients
Wonderslim boasts meals made in FDA-inspected facilities in the USA and many of its products are free from aspartame. However, Nutrisystem promises products free from artificial flavors, colors, sweeteners and high-fructose corn syrup. They also guarantee their meals’ alignment with USDA Dietary Guidelines. Once again, the winner here is Nutrisystem.
Both of these services encourage eating frequent, but small portions. Although Wonderslim’s calorie count is 1,000-1,700 calories per day (depending on the plan), these calories are distributed over 6 portions a day. Additionally, they offer supplements to be taken as part of the diet plan.
The Nutrisystem plan also allows you to eat 6 meals a day, with a maximum of 300 calories per serving. Their meals and snacks are low in calories but high in protein and fibre. Although both services are pretty evenly matched in this category, we have to go with Wonderslim for providing supplements to make sure their customers have all the nutrients they need.
As mentioned above, a big difference between Wonderslim and Nutrisystem is that Wonderslim does not provide dinner meals, but rather guidelines for acceptable ingredients to use while preparing dinner. Hence, with Wonderslim, the variety of your recipes depends on you to an extent. When it comes to other meals, they offer classic American favourites: oatmeal and granola for breakfast, chilli and sloppy joes for lunch, and cheesecake and cookies for dessert.
Nutrisystem also offers classics such as waffles and muffins, hamburgers and stew, while also providing options from world cuisines on its lunch and dinner menus, particularly Italian and Mexican food. In this category, it’s a matter of personal preference as both services offer a delicious variety of meals. As for us, we’re going for Nutrisystem once again for a slightly wider variety in cuisines.
Both Wonderslim and Nutrisystem deliver to all 50 States, and both offer free shipping over a certain price. For Wonderslim this is $69 and while for Nutrisystem it’s $50. Wonderslim also delivers internationally to several countries, including the United Kingdom, Ireland, New Zealand and Japan.
They also take care to prevent damage being done to food on shipment in very warm weather conditions. In this category, it’s Wonderslim who takes home the medal.
