The Weight Loss Journey
Although they are delivered frozen, BistroMD meals are of the highest quality. You just need to quickly heat them up and you can enjoy food that is as fresh as the one you get in a restaurant.
We can start this part of our BistroMD review by saying that what truly sets this meal delivery service apart from similar companies is the scientific method they use as a foundation for their programs. Unlike many diets that promise unbelievable results in just a couple of weeks, BistroMD relies on science and research. Their founding weight loss specialist Caroline J. With a team of registered dietitians, she works to ensure that the nutritional requirements for a healthy weight loss program are met in every weekly menu — and in each and every meal.
It is important to note that BistroMD employes a different approach when designing menus for men and menus for women. Multiple options for both genders gives you enough opportunity to satisfy all your personal preferences and requirements. All dishes are equally healthy and there are no occasional guilty pleasures.
If you choose the most comprehensive program, with three meals per day, all you have to do to lose weight is to actually eat everything. In addition to fully customizing your menu, you can also opt for more specific plans, which may be a better fit for you, including gluten-free, diabetic, menopause, and silver low-sodium and heart-healthy plans, both available in different varieties for men and women.
Cooked and prepared by professional chefs, the meals are balanced and nutritious and consist of lean proteins, healthy fats, and complex carbohydrates. We also need to point out that all the recipes are absolutely delicious. Contrary to what you would expect in a regular weight loss plan, you can experience amazing recipes such as turkey breasts with cranberry chutney and stuffing, grilled salmon with lemon Dijon dressing, four cheese ravioli, peanut butter crepes with strawberry compote, and even stuffed French toast.
The price of your order depends on the number of meals you decide to receive on a daily and weekly basis. You can choose up to three meals a day for 5 or 7 days each week. While all meal deliveries have cutoff dates for making changes to your order, the problem with BistroMD is that you may not be able to actually taste the first order before the deadline to cancel.
