Diet Programs: They're Not Scary. We Promise

We work hard to make your diet program simple and easy. The only scary part is having to update the wardrobe afterwards.


Diet Programs—when we hear that word we want to run away with our tail in-between our legs.  But something triggered your desire to lose weight and now you’re here reading about diet programs for a reason. Maybe it’s the convenience of having meals delivered to your door—you can’t beat that. Besides, who has the time to learn what ingredients to use, shop for ingredients, pick out recipes, cook, and clean up after they're done? I’ll tell you one thing, I don’t.

When you key “diet programs” into your search engine, a laundry list of diet program websites pop up. How do you know which one to choose? The answer is: you don’t. Everyone is different so you choose the one that’s right for you.

If you want fresh, delicious, healthy food that will help you lose weight, then you’ve come to the right place.

First off, we value integrity. That means we stay true to our word. This is not a fad diet. There are no gimmicks. We’re here for you because we want to see you succeed.

Our diet programs are different than other programs you’ve seen on TV or read about in the past. 

Both of our founders, Ed and Caroline Cederquist, were all too familiar with weight issues growing up. So for Ed and Caroline, it isn’t about being on a diet, it’s about embracing a healthy lifestyle change. This means having a program that’s easy to follow and doesn’t sacrifice taste for nutritional quality.

What we’re made of:

We’re built on the foundation of healthy weight-loss that is based on real science and the unique knowledge that food is medicine.

With bistroMD, every menu and every recipe is created so you receive the proper macronutrients your body needs to function. Our entrees contain a scientific balance of complex carbohydrates, like vegetables, whole grains and fiber along with lean protein and healthy fat ratios.

We take this concept and pair it with great tasting, healthy food to give you our award winning diet programs. With over 200 delicious recipes, you don’t have to sacrifice your love of food while you satisfy your body’s need to eat healthier.

The Award-Winning Programs:

We offer men and women’s diet programs—because our bodies are different.

These diet programs focus on metabolism correction so you not only lose fat, but keep it off too. Our diet programs help adjust your body’s specific metabolic rate so you can lose weight and feel enabled to achieve successful lifetime weight-maintenance as well. Our Registered Dietitians plan your daily and weekly menu so you can enjoy eating great tasting, real food while you lose weight.

Once you choose your program, you have the option of five or seven days’ worth of home meal deliveries. Each diet program comes with three meals a day—breakfast, lunch and dinner. However, both diet programs have the option to include EATS, our essential and tasty treats.
