As seen on NBC, Lifetime, The Biggest Loser, The Doctors, and several other shows and networks, bistroMD is consistently publicized. In fact, Dr. Phil has even touted bistroMD as the "Best home delivery available!" But beyond media exposure, the heart and core values behind bistroMD is what pumped success to its consumers and provoked its popularity. So what qualities make bistroMD stand tall against a crowd full of similar services?

About bistroMD

BistroMD is the nation's leading weight loss meal delivery service, providing well-balanced meals straight to doorsteps. While from the surface it may appear like most other meal delivery services, the following characteristics prove just why bistroMD is not like the rest:


Founded by bariatric physician, Dr. Caroline Cederquist, the program is doctor-designed and scientifically-proven to provide you with real results. Each meal provides a scientific balance of complex carbohydrates, whole grains and fiber along with lean protein and healthy fat ratios.


Along with program design from a weight loss physician, dietitians approve and strategize meal plans each week. The team of dietitians assists in creating a customized meal plan while offering individual guidance and services.

Balanced Macronutrients

Most so-called "diets" are restricting, subsequently depriving the body of a plethora of nutrients. But with bistroMD, each meal contains 1,100 to 1,400 calories daily with 40 to 50 percent of total caloric intake from lean, adequate protein, 20 to 25 percent of calories from healthy fats, and 30 to 35 percent from complex carbohydrates. The balance of macronutrients provides the body with what it needs to target fat, lose weight, and jump start healthy weight loss.


A team of seasoned chefs takes the established, quantifiable nutritional guidelines and transpire them into quality meals. Also inspired by the Foodie himself, husband Ed Cederquist, all meals utilize the freshest ingredients and never fall short of flavor!

Customized Programs Options

Health is not a "one size fits all" and bistroMD recognizes that. BistroMD offers customized program options to best accommodate to your nutritional needs, including men and women programs and diabetic and gluten-free diet options. With your personal bistroMD account, you can customize orders anytime and choose between extensive breakfast, lunch, and dinner options.

Flash Frozen for Freshness and Quality

With the determination to utilize the freshest of ingredients, extensive effort goes into ensuring its freshness through flash freezing. And while some cooking techniques can compromise the nutritional integrity, the meals bistroMD crafts withhold their nutritional quality, even after a few minutes in the microwave!

Supporting Resources

Along with receiving adequate meals, bistroMD offers a plethora of supporting resources. From free dietitian support, to fitness tips from trainers, to bistroMD's own Health Library and newsletters, individuals will feel equipped with knowledge, motivation, and skills to continue a healthy lifestyle.

But as if those advantages were not compelling enough, wait till you read these bistroMD reviews by real people celebrating real success...
