South Beach Diet Online
The Cost of Losing 20 Pounds
First made popular in book form, you can now try the South Beach Diet with support from an online plan. There is a one-week free trial and then $5 per week after that. You will drop pounds dramatically during the first two weeks, and then can expect to lose one to two pounds per week until you reach your goal.
Cost of Losing 20 Pounds: $55 for nine weeks, including the book
Cost per Pound: $2.57 (not including groceries)
MoneyWatch Conclusion: "It doesn’t cost much, but you don’t get as much support as with Weight Watchers or eDiets."
