Paleo Jenny Craig service?

Answered on August 19, 2014

Just wondering...could be a possible niche opportunity? Is there an equivalent (to Jenny Craig/NutriSystem) food delivery/program Paleo food service in the SoCal/LA area? P.S. I think Jenny and Nutri are crappy food.

Yes, but there are a lot of really good distractions there-speakers on everything. Paleo Boot Camp would be more like basic training and no-brainer eating with lots of moving in between.

There are a gazillion private chefs/caterers/nutritionists that offer nutrisystem-esque meal delivery. Paleta, Zen Foods and Freshology have paleo programs as well. But I have yet to see anyone endorsed by the "Paleo community".

I think the idea is totally viable- similar to a spa experience but more active.

I've had the same idea. My sister works on an organic farm that holds retreats for yoga, feldenkrais, meditation etc. I think it would be a great venue for a Paleo retreat.

I've thought about this idea. Having watched other people have problems with Paleo, I think a big part of the problem is not being able to separate from readily available neolithic food and social pressure during the first few weeks. 2 weeks to a month in a supportive environment with good paleo food available might be really helpful.

I like the idea - food rehab. People spend weeks in alcohol and drug rehab why not 30 days during the elimination in Paleo rehab! Ha! There must be a market for this somewhere!

It would be easier to ship the people to the food- Paleo Boot Camp!

Well, the trouble is the costs of delivering fresh food. Just looking at Nutrisystem's financials, they spend a ton of money just shipping the crappy food around. It would not be cost effective.
