See How Lisa Got her Body Back and Changed Her Family's Life

After the birth of her second child, Lisa Alexander was up to 170 pounds.

Like many Americans who are stressed out with the pressures of work and a young family, Lisa ordered takeout meals for lunch, and often, dinner as well.

“It felt like my body just fell off,” says Lisa.

With the extra weight that she had gained, she started to experience pain in her back and could no longer pick up her son, Elijah.

That was when she decided enough was enough, so she hopped online to do some research. Lisa hadn't heard of bistroMD, but was delighted when she realized how much our program could help her. The idea that you could eat healthy and actually enjoy what you're eating while still losing weight had never occurred to her before.

Lisa liked the idea of having chef prepared meals in her own home, and today says that bistroMD, "Was the best decision I ever made."

We are more than just a diet plan. We like to think of ourselves as a healthy lifestyle plan. This is real food for real people.

“BistroMD helped me to understand what healthy, normal portions looked like—what exactly your body really needs because at the end of the day, food is fuel," says Lisa. "I finally know what my body needs in order to stay healthy. With bistroMD, I looked at the portion size and found that they my portions were extremely out of control, so that of course has transitioned to the way that we eat in my house and so it’s not just a change for me. It’s a lifestyle change for my family as well.”

“I try to duplicate some of the different things I see them send to us, and then I try to give that to my family, because of course I want them to be living at their fullest and I think that that’s one of the most amazing things that bistroMD has done for me—it’s just made me a healthier, happier person.”
