A Good Diet to Lose Weight is Something that is Unexpected

Are you looking for a good diet to lose weight? If the answer is yes, go stand in that group over there with a million other people. You and everyone you know want a good diet to lose weight and this is the problem: you don’t need to diet. You need to eat healthy and keep up with a healthy lifestyle so you can successfully lose weight the healthy way.

Our take on things

Here at bistroMD, we don’t believe in dieting. Dieting sounds like strict portion control, limited food choices and tiresome calorie counting; and that's not what we do. We don’t believe in “dieting”. We believe in health because we are built on the foundation of healthy weight loss that is based on real science and the unique knowledge that food is medicine.

Our founders, Ed Cederquist (the Foodie) and Caroline Cederquist ( the MD) were all too familiar with weight loss issues growing up and by combining their love for great tasting real food and the unique knowledge that food is medicine, the two of them have given many people a second chance through the principles of healthy eating.

We’re a group of passionate and dedicated individuals who thrive off of integrity. This means that we would never serve you anything that we would not eat at our own dinner table. If you want a good diet to lose weight, choose a company that’s passionate about your success, like bistroMD.

Take his word for it

Frank Cruz knows a good diet to lose weight because he tried bistroMD and got his life back. Affectionately referred to as the Fat Man Unleashed, Frank tried dieting before bistroMD—falling victim to the dreaded yo-yo lifestyle. One day Frank couldn't take it anymore and decided to try bistroMD.

“BistroMD has helped me achieve my dreams because I needed my own chef in my house. With a full-time job, and my wife working full-time and raising our kids, neither one of us really have time to cook for ourselves. With BistroMD, it’s like I have my own personal chef, and I get free support from a dietitian. I have all the confidence I need to succeed. I don’t have to worry about cooking, or what I’m going to eat anymore,” said Frank.

The science

A good diet to lose weight requires a proven weight loss formula that shows you results.

Dr. Caroline Cederquist, M.D., has over 20 years of experience as a bariatric physician. Dr. Cederquist along with our Registered Dieticians created the science behind bistroMD. Every bite you take follows this proven approach for healthy weight loss. Our program provides 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.

The convenience

A good diet to lose weight understands that convenience is a huge deal. We know that it can be hard to sift through all of the nutritional information out there and select healthy ingredients, choose healthy recipes, cook and clean up after you’re done. But with bistroMD, you’ll never have to worry about again. And the best news is that you’ll start to see results in just a few weeks. You don’t have anything to lose, but the fat!

We have a men and a women’s program and the option to receive five-or-seven-days’ worth of healthy meals. The seven day option comes with the My Night feature, which lets you eat whatever you want for one night. The two programs range from $130-$160 and EATS, our essential and tasty snacks are an additional option at $1.50 per snack. The number of snacks you receive will depend on your gender. Women receive two snacks per day and men receive three snacks per day.
