What is freshology? Well if you are a fan of the television program “Dancing with the Stars”, then you have probably heard of this “healthy gourmet meals delivery service”. Ricki Lake and others on the program are using the product and are losing weight. So, since I’m a fan of healthy eating and fitness, I thought I would research freshology.
Here’s what I have found. The freshology meals are delivered either fresh or frozen. The fresh option starts at $47.95/day and includes breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert. The fresh option meals are delivered twice per week. The frozen option starts at $35.95/day and includes breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert. The frozen option meals are delivered once per week. These prices do not include shipping and handling. There is a two week minimum order.
As an example to get the cost, I selected the freshology GetSlim with the Stars Samba option (the cheaper frozen option) with a 28 day supply for a man. The total was just over $1200 or $42.50/day. The first 100 customers also get a Dancing with the Stars fat-burning cardio dance workout DVD.
To justify the cost, I thought I would compare this to what is currently available through Beachbody, which are the programs that I’m currently doing. Right now you can join me in a Beachbody Challenge program, where you will get support and encouragement from a small group doing the same daily workout. You can choose from the popular workouts – Hip Hop Abs, Brazil Butt Lift, Slim In 6, Power90, Turbo Jam, 10 Minute Trainer, Body Gospel, P90X, Insanity, or Turbo Fire. You will also receive a meal planning guide customized to your weight loss goals complete with shopping lists and recipes. In addition, you will receive a 30 day supply of Shakeology, which is the healthiest meal of the day and will be used to replace one meal or snack per day. Depending on which workout program you selected, your total cost would be $175 to $225. That is quite a difference in price and I think I can buy and prepare the food outlined in the Beachbody meal planning guide for a lot less than $1000 difference! To continue the Beachbody Challenge program, the cost would be 10% of the freshology program or $120/month for the 30 day supply of Shakeology.
Freshology would have the benefits of convenience, but that convenience comes a quite a cost difference over the Beachbody Challenge. If you are like me and cannot justify or afford that cost difference, then join me in the Beachbody Challenge and let me help you reach your fitness goals!
