I've added another affiliate link -- this one is for DietDirect.com.  



I've placed several orders with these folks (for the protein instant oatmeal, and the Crisp n' Crunch bars) and they've always shipped fast and gotten my order right.

When you "shop by brand" on that site the "Protidiet" bars, diet soups, and oatmeals are the same ones that the clinic sells.  Also, if you shop by brand for "WonderSlim", and then skip past everything until you get to the "WonderSlim Crisp 'N Crunch Bars", these are the awesome bars that are sold in the U.S. clinics, but not in Canada (for whatever reason).  Those of you that went to Michelle's party got to try these.  To make sure you get the right thing, these are the ones with 15g of protein --  Cinnamon, Fudge Graham, Peanut, Double Berry Breakfast, and Cocoa Cafe Breakfast, Crisp 'N Crunch bars.  The other WonderSlim bars are not the ones the clinics sell.

I know some folks in Canada have done "group orders" orders from DietDirect.com, so maybe they can comment on how much shipping was, whether or not they had to pay any duty, etc.

If you order from them, be sure to use the link/logo above, and when you get to the final checkout, use code 'SAVE10' to save 10% or code '73567' to save $5 (whichever is a better deal for the size of your order).

[Note: As of 15-JAN-2010 the 73567 and SAVE10 discount codes are expired per DietDirect.  Now 10% off is automatic on orders over $99 with no coupon code needed.]

Also, they have free shipping on orders over $79.  I'm not sure if this includes shipping to Canada or not -- again, if you're in Canada and have done an order that big with them, let us know.

[Note: The free shipping offer does include shipping to Canada.]

I figured out how to make links to specific products and still have it show us as your referrer.  To save someone possibly ordering the wrong stuff, here are some helpful tips for this merchant:

These bars are the same Crisp 'n Crunch bars that the clinics sell here in the U.S. (that aren't available in the clinics in Canada).  Personally, I find them to be infinitely better than the other (non Crisp 'n Crunch) bars the clinic sells.  My favorites are the Cinnamon and the Fudge Graham (I go back and forth as to which is my fav).  Ten seconds in the microwave (remove the wrapper) makes these unreal.

These bars and these bars are the same ones that are sold in both the U.S. and Canada clinics.  They're pretty good, but not as good as the Crisp 'n Crunch (above) in my opinion.

These oatmeals are the same ones the clinic sells.  I eat one package of the apple-cinnamon pretty much every day.  It makes an awesome thickener in my morning shakes (and a protein boost too).  On strict that would be a no-no because it would be two proteins two close together (and also count as two Dr. B products in a day), but maybe still a helpful tip for those who are on their own now if your protein needs justify it (as mine do).

The chicken noodle soup is the same one that is sold at the Dr. B clinic.  They only sell the Chicken Noodle flavor and not the other flavors.  The nutrition information for the other flavors is different, so I wouldn't use the other flavors on strict without getting them approved first.

This cereal is not Dr. B approved, but I tried it on a whim (I'm on "all foods in moderation" so it's OK) and I really like it.  It is high in protein and low in carbs.  It even makes a great crunchy snack dry out of the bag.  For maintainers only!!!

Finally, these crunchy snacks are not Dr. B approved, but they sent me 4 bags free (2 original and 2 cheddar) when I placed a big order recently.  I thought it was just a special thing they threw in, but the flyer I got with my most recent order says if your order is over $79 you get 4 bags free automatically so that explains that.  I prefer the cheddar -- the original seems too salty to me.  They have about 16g of carbs in a bag, so that and the fact that they are not Dr. B approved means they'd be for maintainers only.  No idea how long the "4 free" offer is going on... [Note: this offer has ended -- there is a new offer every month though, and their cart reminds you of the offer once you add items, so check the site to see what the current offer is.]

Some ordering tips to help you save even more money:

At the end of the checkout process there is a place to put in a discount code.  If you put in SAVE10 you'll save 10% on your whole order.  If you put in 73567 you'll save a flat $5.  If your order is over $50, then you save more with the SAVE10.  If it's less than $50, then the 73567 saves you more.

[Note: As of 15-JAN-2010 the 73567 and SAVE10 discount codes are expired per DietDirect.  Now 10% off is automatic on orders over $99 with no coupon code needed.]

Also, I didn't know this before, but, quoting the flyer I got with my most recent order:

Quote
With any order over $49, you may request 3 FREE SAMPLES of individual servings from ANY of our boxed protein diet products (7 servings/box items only) or single serving snacks.

When Ordering Online: In the "Special Instructions" space in step #2 of the checkout, type the word "3 FREE SAMPLES" along with the 3 specific items and flavors you desire.


Heck, I've been missing out!  My order is almost always over $49 and I've never done this.  This would be a great way to try a new product/flavor without having to buy a whole box of it.

Also, they have free standard shipping on orders over $79.  [Edit: this includes free shipping to Canada - thanks for the info. Ada!]  I try to "save up" my orders and do one big one instead of multiple little ones so I can get the free shipping (and whatever the other free offer of the month is).

That's it for DietDirect.  If I discover any other really good stuff I'll let you all know.

Someone asked me about ordering from DietDirect and having it shipped to Canada (since DietDirect is in the U.S.).  I did some searching around here and found that Noma has ordered from them before, so hopefully she can post and let everyone know how the shipping costs were, whether there was any duty on the shipment, etc.

Thanks in advance for any insight Noma!

Thanks for all this info. Brian.  Have just put through my order and took you up on alot of your suggestions.  There is free shipping to Canada as well for orders over $79 (net total after all discounts) and Noma, if I recall correctly, said she did not pay any duty.....not sure about the sales tax/gst though. Heck, with the Canadian dollar on a tear the timing of your information could not have been better !! :D  :laugh:

Thanks for that information Ada!  I'm guessing the fact that the free shipping offer applies to Canada will make a big difference to folks placing an order big enough to qualify.

I ordered $90.00 from Diet Direct on Sep 19th. My order arrived this morning so 1 week and 2 days in transit/crossing border etc. They took the 10% off, so my order came to $80.91 (US at par). No shipping costs and NO duty. Just wanted to let everyone know. I can't wait to try the chocolate fudge graham bars. Thanks again Brian!
