Home Delivery Diet Meal:

Just What the Doctor Ordered for Convenient Weight-loss

Home Delivery Diet Meal:

We are starved for time and good food

Americans want to see results instantaneously and weight-loss is no exception. In our consumer-driven society, instant gratification is the emerging trend and home delivery diet meals are certainly not immune.

The instant gratification trend is having a dramatic influence on food preparation and consumption—making the home delivery diet meal more popular. It’s not shocking that in 2008, a Datamonitor survey found that 44% of citizens across 15 countries feel that it is difficult to manage their daily obligations and find time to relax. A Yankelovich study conducted in 2008 discovered 70% of Americans, aged 16 years or older, feel that they do not have the time to do all the things they need to do. And those are just 16-year-olds! In addition, 50% of Americans believe the lack of time is a bigger problem than money.

This is a problem because decreased windows of time and increased stress levels almost always guarantees bad eating habits. According to a study by Ahlgren, 60% of American consumers do not know at 4 p.m. what they will have for dinner that night and then they expect to spend a total of about 30 minutes preparing, cooking and eating the meal, including clean up. That’s just not realistic. Cooking at home is seen as a chore and meal preparation is considered very time consuming, which leads to bad food choices.

Healthy eating is very important. It not only makes you feel better, but it gives your body the energy it needs. Home delivery diet meals are not just for those in need of some weight-loss guidance, they’re more of a healthy eating plan on the way to a permanent healthy lifestyle. In other words, anyone can benefit from trying a home delivery diet meal—if not for the results, for the convenience and pathway to a healthy lifestyle.

The solution

BistroMD is the solution. We know you’re short on time so we don’t ask you to count calories. We know you’re hungry so we don’t ask you to restrict portion sizes. We are built on the foundation of healthy weight-loss based on real science and the unique knowledge that food is medicine and we offer you real food that doesn’t taste like cardboard.

With over 20 years of medical expertise in her field, one of our founders and board certified bariatric physician, Caroline J. Cederquist, M.D., works with our team of Registered Dietitians to ensure the nutritional requirements for healthy and long-term weight loss are met every entree.

These requirements are: 1,100-1,400 calories daily with 40-50% total caloric intake from lean, adequate protein, 20-25% of calories from healthy fats, and 30-35% from complex carbohydrates.

Since we already understand which ingredients to use, it just makes sense that we shop, cook and clean for you. Trust us, we don’t mind. The great part about our home delivery diet meals is that we have over 200 delicious recipes. This means you don’t have to sacrifice your love of food so you can eat healthier.

If you want to join us on the path to healthy living, we offer two programs ranging from $130-$160. After you select the men or women’s program, you'll choose to receive five-or-seven-days’ worth of delicious entrees from our home delivery diet meal program, delivered to your door. We also offer the option to include EATS, our essential and tasty snacks, for just $1.50 per snack. Women receive two snacks per day and men receive three snacks per day.
