Our fully customizable meals plans are available in weekly and monthly subscriptions. See our complete list of rates here.

Nutritional Advice. Our menus are designed by the team of experts behind NUTHERA. If you have any questions about the nutritional aspects of this service, please let us know immediately and we will be happy to discuss these with you. Any nutritional advice must NOT be relied upon as a specific health and medical prescription. For your specific medical conditions, please consult your physician or doctor prior to availing of our service.

While we can cater to clients who have sensitive medical conditions, allergies, dietary restrictions and food intolerance, we recommend you consult with your nutritionist or doctor for your specific prescription and nutritional requirements.

We highly recommend at least (30) days for full evaluation of the success of your meal plan. Your body has to adjust from fueling itself on high glycemic carbs and processed sugar to burning your stored fat for energy, which can take a few weeks.
