For David, bistroMD was the lifestyle change he needed to lose 280 lbs and re-gain his life back.
David before and after
While losing 280 lbs. is undoubtedly impressive, when David set out to lose weight, his primary goal was to feel healthy, be unrestricted in what he could do, and generally enjoy life again. Here’s how he did it, and how you can too!

“I was buying a lot of processed stuff that is not really that great for you.” This, combined with the ease of delivery companies like Grubhub, contributed to the weight gain. “I know a lot of people resonate with that aspect of my story: not having a lot of skills in the kitchen and not knowing what to buy.”

 “BistroMD has given me access to health. I didn’t even know where to start. I needed help and bistroMD put dieting more within reach than it was previously in my life. I liked the many different plans that bistroMD offers and I liked that it was made by a doctor and designed by nutritionists every week.”

Highlights from David's Journey

Creating New Healthy Habits


“I started the bistroMD Heart Healthy plan and transitioned from drinking mostly soda — to sparkling water — to flat water. I also started a fitness regimen comprised of at-home hybrid yoga/strength-training workouts to increase my physical activity and mobility.”

45lbsStaying Committed


“Since I started bistroMD a little over two months ago, I’ve lost over 45 lbs. and I’m excited! I’ve noticed my pain diminish and my endurance strengthen.

100lbsReaching the 100 lbs Milestone


TODAY is a great day. TODAY I have passed the 100lbs-down mark after starting bistroMD just over 5 months ago. Through this and a great exercise program, I have significantly decreased my lower back pain. I’m not stopping, and I’m excited to really have my life back.”

143lbsCelebrating Every Milestone


“It’s been 9 months since I started bistroMD and I’m currently down 143 lbs, 2-3 pants sizes and 2 shirt sizes.”

280lbsLiving His Best, Healthy Life


“Last week was my two year anniversary with bistroMD and I’m feeling better than ever!  I now find myself looking forward to activities that involve exercise. I also rediscovered my passion for biking. I signed up for several biking events and have successfully completed them. The previous me would never have done that. Before I lost this weight, I saw exercise as a chore that I had to do to lose weight. Now I see it as fun activities that I can do.”

“BistroMD has helped me regain my quality of life to a point where I feel even better than my younger years. I’m so grateful for the help their meal plans, dietitians, and member support group have given me to improve my health and reach my goals!”
