I felt compelled to write you about my experience with bistroMD.
I have been eating bistroMD meals five days per week for one month now and I've already lost 10 pounds. Other than starting the meal plan, I haven't made any other lifestyle changes. I love to cook, eat healthy, and try all of the great restaurants in NYC, where I live.
So I was skeptical, to say the least, about living on pre-made food. I fully expected to give up flavor, variety, and most of all decent portions. I was way off on all counts! The food is amazing. When you say "restaurant quality" you mean it! That's a big statement coming from someone who lives in one of the food capitals of the world and takes full advantage of that. The portions are perfect for me. I'm a big eater - portion control is one of my major food problems - and I have never felt deprived or hungry while eating bistroMD meals. They are satisfying in every way. The snacks are also great and give me the between meal boost that I need. It's hard to believe that I've never really felt hungry on the plan. There are days when I do want a little extra so I add a salad or a piece of fruit or something similar.
My other concern with this diet was beverages. I love beer. I'm a beer connoisseur. I've traveled the world drinking some of the best beers ever made. I wasn't about to give it up. I didn't. I've been drinking beer, adding a little extra food on occasion, enjoying my days off on the weekend, and haven't altered my life what-so-ever - and I've still lost 10 pounds! I've tried for years to lose that same 10 pounds but I could never break through that plateau. Now I've done it without even trying! I also have a cholesterol problem so I had my doctor review the bistroMD website / plan before I started it and he fully approves.
When I go out to eat with friends, I either eat with them (and save my meal for a weekend) or I have a salad and eat my bistroMD before or after going out. It's also so easy to bring to work. I often work long hours so I bring my lunch and dinner to work and make it in the microwave. The customer services is excellent too. I've made a couple of requests about certain foods / snacks that I didn't love and they happily made the adjustment before my next delivery.
Everything about the plan is awesome!
