I tried Nutrisystem’s best plan and found that it’s definitely not one size fits all when it comes to weight loss. If you cancel too early though, you might end up paying a fine. I’ll walk you through the whole process below.
I’ve tested a lot of meal delivery services and I’ve found a few weight-loss plans that are superior to Nutrisystem in different ways.
Diet-to-Go’s plans provide restaurant-style meals for maximum results. Meals arrive frozen and you just pop them in the microwave.
Meanwhile, Sunbasket’s low-calorie plan focuses on meal kits that make you feel great, thanks to both the physical benefits and the ethical sourcing of its ingredients.
I’ll explain more about the alternatives later on, but first, let’s cancel your Nutrisystem plan.
You should be aware that if you cancel within the first 15 days of your order arriving, you’ll be liable to pay $125 to Nutrisystem, as reimbursement for the auto-delivery discount on your first shipment.
But thankfully, the cancellation process is straightforward, and also pretty generous – you have up until 6 pm ET the day before your order is due to ship to do it.
Call the customer support team on 1-800-585-5483.
Press option one, then option six on your phone to get through to a customer support agent.
Tell the customer support agent that you want to cancel. Make sure to have your Nutrisystem client number handy (you can find it on your billing material). The agent will confirm your cancellation. And that’s it!
Just because you canceled your Nutrisystem subscription, it doesn’t mean you have to dust off the recipe books or venture back into grocery stores (the horror!). Thankfully, there are plenty of other options out there for healthy meal delivery services.
Here’s a list of top Nutrisystem alternatives well worth trying out.
One complaint our reviewer had when they tried Nutrisystem was that the meals were overly processed. But there are plenty of other services that have a focus on fresh food and ingredients.
Sunbasket can take you back to a more wholesome and ecologically responsible way of eating with its clean, organic ingredients.
Sunbasket’s low-calorie plan gives you all the benefits of an organic meal kit, with the results of a diet plan. You can even choose between meal kits or Fresh & Ready prepared meals depending on how you like to cook.

You’ll get two, four, or six meals per week for three to four people, with easy-to-follow, color-coded recipe cards. Simply prepare your meals in 30 minutes or less, and enjoy your food without the added hassle of extremely long prep and cleanup times.

Canceling your Nutrisystem subscription is really easy. As long as you don’t decide to do it at the last minute, you’re not going to face any penalties.
That said, you’ll need to make sure you don’t quit too early or you’ll end up paying back some of the initial savings.
If Nutrisystem wasn’t right for you, don’t worry. You don’t have to give up on your healthy eating goals just because this service didn’t work out for you. There are lots of quality diet meal plans out there that might suit your needs even better.
