NutriFit® FAQs

How does the NutriFit® meal service work?
Meals are selected based on your food preferences by using our database of over 2,500 recipes. You can also substitute alternative selections. Meals can be picked up at our west Los Angeles facility, delivered to your home or office, or shipped to you nationwide.
Why is the NutriFit® meal delivery service different from other meal delivery services?
It is our mission to help people achieve their personal health goals. We also offer additional services to help you succeed, including metabolic testing, body composition analysis, cooking classes, health and wellness coaching and nutritional guidance, as well as an array of fitness products, health manuals, books, our own Salt and Sugar Free Spice Blends, High & Mighty BarsTM, Mighty MixesTM, and Family Fare program.

We can support many different dietary platforms and approaches in addition to the Mediterranean and Dash diets, including weight gain programs, renal diets, diabetic diets, gluten free, vegan, vegetarian, and Paleo-friendly meals. You may rate all the meals you receive on paper or online. As a member of NutriFit®, you can manage your billing and suspend meals for any length of time online. Single meals and partial days can also be suspended via email or telephone.

How much does meal delivery cost?
Plans start at $26/day. Your pricing is determined by the number of meals received daily and your desired billing frequency. Generally, breakfast, lunch and dinner (which includes morning snack, afternoon snack, soup or salad and dessert or evening snack) is about $47/day on our pre-pay monthly rate. We also offer an ESSENTIALS program that features affordable meals without snacks. Check our Special Offer section or call our office (800.341.4190) for current promotions.
Do I need to order breakfast, lunch and dinner 7 days a week?

Dinner only plans include a soup or salad, and an evening snack or dessert. Essentials plans do not automatically include snacks, but they can be added as desired for a nominal fee
Can I see if I like the meals before making a commitment?
Absolutely, try us for one delivery at our standard rate before deciding on the type of service you desire.
I have several food allergies; can accommodations be made?
Yes. Depending on the level of accommodation, an additional charge may apply.
What percentage of protein, fat and carbohydrates are in your meals?
This varies depending on the dietary platform you have selected. Our weight loss plans generally contain 20-25% lean protein, 20-25% healthy fat and 50-60% favorable carbohydrates, and are based on the Mediterranean and Dash diets. Alternative programs are available, including higher and lower protein and fat levels.
Can I get vegetarian or vegan meals?

Individual meals and Family Fare menus include selections for all ages. NutriFit® can accommodate the whole family, including little ones and finicky eaters.
Can I add seasoning?
Our meals are prepared with a minimal amount of salt for health reasons; however, you may choose to add spices as desired. Jackie Keller has designed six of our own Salt and Sugar Free Spice Blends that are available for purchase. Single serving samples are available for trial, as are economical refill packets.
Do you offer juice cleanses?
We do offer liquid nutrition plans, which can be used for up to a week or two, depending on the need. While we do not consider them to be "cleanses", we recognize that some people can benefit from a liquid meal plan for a number of reasons. Our vegetable or fruit juice-based smoothies are balanced with protein and fiber, making them a nutritious alternative.
Are organic ingredients used?
We use organic ingredients wherever possible. Our own produce is organically grown on our sustainable farm. Our poultry is either organic or free range, and all animal proteins are wild (seafood), antibiotic, hormone and preservative free. 100% completely organic meals are available for an additional charge.

NutriFit® is located in West Los Angeles, near the 10 and 405 freeways. You are more than welcome to schedule a time to stop by if you wish to see our facility; we love to meet our clients face to face. We are proud of our kitchen and enjoy the opportunity to show it to our clients and friends.
Can I look at menus or pick my meals in advance?
Our Premium and Essentials programs allow you to view the meals that have been selected for your upcoming week. We create hundreds of meals that are all different using your personal profile and health goals. In addition, we also take into consideration what is available and fresh from our suppliers on a daily basis. You can review your upcoming delivery online using our account management system, and select alternatives (depending on your meal plan) to what has been planned from a preset list.
How do I make changes to my meal plan?
Use the online account management feature to make changes to your plan. Should you be unable to do so, simply call or email us. We will confirm the changes so you know their effective date. Unconfirmed change requests should not be considered received.
What if I don't like the food I receive?
Your feedback is important to us and we will work with you! We will do our best to make sure that every meal is pleasing, however it can take some time to get to know your preferences. However, refunds are not granted simply because the meal is not to your liking. All deliveries come with a menu (in the top of the cooler bag) so that you can rate the meals (return your marked menus with your empty bags), or you can rate your meals online at your convenience. Should you rate a meal with lowest rating possible, we will remove it from any future menus.
What is your delivery range?
NutriFit® drivers serve the greater Los Angeles area, Orange County, Santa Clarita and some of Ventura County in Southern California. Additionally, we use UPS and FedEx for longer distance shipping. Please call with any specific delivery location questions as special delivery arrangements can be made to cover other areas. Nationwide shipping is available.
How often and when will my meals be delivered?
We deliver your meals in the early morning hours of Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays in iced cooler bags. Monday deliveries include Monday and Tuesday meals. Wednesday includes Wednesday and Thursday meals. Friday includes Friday, Saturday, and Sunday meals. We do offer daily delivery during the week to most areas for a nominal delivery charge.
How are my calories determined?
For Premium service clients, we set your calories (in conjunction with you) based on your diet and exercise history, your goals, current weight, desired weight and lifestyle (exercise, sleep, stress and hydration). On our Essentials program, the calorie levels are set for 1,200, 1,500 or 1,800 calories per day (we assume you will add snacks to meet these levels).
Can I get specific caloric information on my meals?
Nutrition Facts labels are available for all Family Fare meals on the website. While all of our meals are nutritionally analyzed, we do not provide this exact information for our personal catering clients. However, we can tell you what your average daily macronutrient (protein, fat, carbohydrate, dietary fiber) values are, and how they are divided between your meals. This can be provided on a one-time basis. Our goal is to remove the focus on calories, thereby allowing you to concentrate on the other factors that make weight management successful, such as exercise, hydration, stress and sleep.
How much weight will I lose?
Our clients report an average of 11 lbs. of weight lost in the first month, and a 22 lb. average weight loss over the course of the first 3 months, however results may vary. Your weight loss results may vary, though, depending on several factors. Other considerations include how many meals you receive from us, what you eat on your non-NutriFit® days, how much and what type of exercise you do (and are accustomed to doing), and your sleep, stress and hydration habits. We recommend losing weight at a safe rate of one to two pounds per week. Accelerated weight loss and weight gain programs are available.
How long will it take me to lose weight?
This depends on several different factors (see How much weight will I lose). We advise following a program that is sustainable for the long term, so that you will not have to repeatedly lose the same weight over and over again.
What if I don't want to lose weight, but I need to maintain or gain weight?
Everyone benefits from healthy eating, whether you need to lose, maintain or gain weight. We're here to help you with your specific needs, whatever they may be.
Do I need to speak to my physician before I begin NutriFit®?
It is always advisable to speak to your physician before beginning a program, particularly if you're planning on losing weight or if you have a specific medical condition.
Do I need supplements while eating NutriFit® meals?
NutriFit® does not recommend taking 'diet pills' but we do suggest taking a multivitamin and an omega-3 fatty acid supplement. Ask your health care provider for your specific needs.
What should I drink?
Being properly hydrated by drinking adequate water is a critical part of nutritional health. We recommend you drink water even before signs of thirst appear (8-10 glasses daily). Minimize (or eliminate entirely) your consumption of alcoholic beverages (particularly for weight loss plans) and add in green tea daily. Coffee is permitted (please avoid artificial sweeteners and adding cream or sugar). Diet sodas are not recommended, however, an occasional sugar free beverage will most likely not affect your results.
What if I'm hungry or there's too much food for me to eat?
Just let us know! We will work with you to adjust your portion size accordingly.
What promotions/discounts can I take advantage of?
We offer seasonal promotions to all our current and past clients. Please call and ask about current promotions/discounts.
What is the cancellation policy?
As with any changes to your plan, you may suspend your service without penalty provided you do so online by noon of the previous delivery day (that is, Monday for Wednesday deliveries, Wednesday for Friday deliveries and Friday for Monday deliveries). The system will send you an automatic confirmation if you suspend online. If you prefer to suspend meals via email, you must receive a confirmation via email to insure the suspension has been handled. Unconfirmed
Can I cancel just one meal, or do I have to cancel an entire day?
You do not need to cancel an entire day of meals, only the ones you want to skip.
Is there a minimum order for delivery?
For personal catering programs, delivery is free in the aforementioned areas with a $50.00 average minimum order value. There may be an additional charge for outlying areas, or programs where the average delivery value falls below the minimum required for free delivery. For Family Fare orders, delivery is free in our customary delivery area if the order value exceeds $75.00. For smaller orders, the fee is determined by the order value and the proximity of the delivery location to our west Los Angeles facility. Shipping to other areas in the continental United States is available.
Can I get meals delivered at alternate locations, such as home and work?
Absolutely - call by noon of the previous delivery day in order to make changes to the affected meal period (i.e. call us noon on Friday for any changes you need to make to your Monday delivery). Meals can also be picked up at our west L.A. facility.
What if I have to go out of town?
Travel with NutriFit®! Our meals can be packed for airplane travel (a week's worth can often be packaged and set as luggage), and many clients find it very helpful to have plane-friendly meals and snacks with them! Or, we can ship your meals to your destination so they are waiting for you (packing fees do apply). However, if you wish to suspend service, you may manage your schedule online at any time. Simply input your dates for suspension by noon of the previous DELIVERY day. If you wish to suspend a partial day or individual meal period, just call or email us on a timely basis (by noon of the previous delivery day), and we will input the information for you. Bear in mind that our office must confirm your request in order for it to be considered received. Refunds will not be granted unless proof of confirmation is available.
How can you guarantee the safety of my meals?
All cooler bags come with tamper-evident safety seals. Should the safety seal be missing, we ask that you call us immediately. Refunds are not granted merely because the seal is missing.
What if I live in an apartment or security building?
We will need access to your front door and may need a key or access code to gain entry.
Will my meals be safe until I can put them in the fridge?
Our cooler bag are packed with sufficient ice and designed to keep your meals insulated for up to 8 hours. However, we do not guarantee replacement should weather conditions change, or if the meals are not placed under refrigeration promptly. Please check to see if your bag has been delivered before you retire at night. If they are delivered after you retire, we recommend you refrigerate them by 7:00 am.
How will I know which meal to eat and when?
All meals and snacks are clearly labeled indicating meal type (breakfast, lunch, or dinner), name of meal and day to be eaten.
How do I heat the meals?
Individual meals can be reheated in their containers, according to the instructions on the label. Please check for condiments and garnishes that should be removed before heating, and note that flour-based buns, tortillas and crackers should be heated very gently for the minimum amount of time needed, as they tend to toughen in the microwave oven. Microwave safe containers are provided for hot meals and soups. Check the label carefully, as all microwave ovens vary in heating strength. It is best to reheat in short, 30-second increments, as you can always add a few more seconds to the heating time. Overheating can ruin the taste and texture of any dish. If you like your food well done, you can always heat it longer in the microwave, or transfer to a skillet or oven. We serve our vegetables al dente and proteins cooked rare to medium to allow you to heat/cook further without destroying the meal. Credit is not given for meals that are not cooked to your preferred degree of doneness. Family Fare meals are delivered in either microwave safe containers or containers designed for conventional ovens (aluminum foil containers). The heating instructions on the label MAY NOT apply, so if the item is delivered in the foil container, do not place it in your microwave oven.
Can I freeze the meals?
Many meals can be frozen. Your personalized label will tell you whether it can be frozen or not. The meal containers are not airtight, so we suggest using a freezer bag in order to preserve the food.
What do I do with the empty bag, ice blocks and meal containers?
Please leave the cooler bag and ice blocks out the night before your next delivery. Your driver will take the empty cooler bag with the ice blocks and replace it with fresh, deliciously healthy meals. Also, we ask that you please recycle the empty meal containers. These can also be used for storage or donated to a school. Should you elect to rinse out and return empty containers to us, we will donate them to a local charity to be re-purposed for homeless meals.
What other services are available to help with my overall health?
NutriFit® offers additional services to help you succeed, including metabolic testing, body composition analysis, cooking classes, wellness coaching and nutrition guidance, as well as an array of fitness products, health manuals, books, our own salt and sugar-free spice blends, energy bars and options for family style ordering. Additionally, we have a vast network of health professionals (fitness and medical experts) who are ready to join your health enhancement team.
What forms of payment do you accept? Will you take personal checks or cash?
We accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover and AMEX, but unfortunately we cannot take personal checks or cash.
Do I need to input a credit card number if I sign up online?
No, we do not need your credit card information until you have spoken to a representative and are set up to receive your first delivery.
How will I be billed?
You may choose to be billed once per week (called weekly billing) at our daily rate, take advantage of discounted 14-day or 28-day rate, which requires advance payment. In that case, a retainer will be established and the value of your deliveries will be deducted from the retainer every time you receive meals. You can select automatic renewal (by signing an authorization), which allows your meals to continue from one cycle to another without interruption. You can view your billing cycle using your online member account, and change it at your convenience. There are more favorable rates for longer commitments, and our special promotions are generally based on prepaid meal plans.
Do you have a referral program?
NutriFit® says 'thanks' for referring new clients by depositing two days of meal credits into your account, or three days for recommending two people who receive food at the same address.
