F.A.Q.weekly deadlines

What are the deadlines to hold or cancel my order?

Your weight loss journey takes dedication and requires consistency so we have designed your program for a weekly delivery of food. All orders are automatically recurring. To place a hold or cancel your next order, please contact us within the deadlines listed below.

Our deadline is always Wednesday at 5pm., ET, PRIOR to your next week's order.

Please know that you are always able to cancel future orders by our deadlines by contacting us via e-mail at or call 866-401-DIET (3438).

When do I customize my first week in my bistroMD?

We suggest that you immediately customize your program on the order confirmation page. If you have not yet customized your order, log on to now to review your first week's menu. If you experience any problems during our business hours please call 866-401-DIET (3438) or email after business hours at and we will be happy to assist you. If you do not customize, we will send you our dietitian's recommended menu for your first week.

When do I customize my second week in my bistroMD?

You need to customize, review, and approve your second week no later than Wednesday at 5pm. You can customize in your account. In order to allow time to create your program, we must work a week in advance.

When is the cutoff to submit my order for the first week of my program, and still receive it the same week?

We uphold a Tuesday at noon, ET, cutoff deadline, to allow time to prepare your menu. It is our utmost priority to ensure that your entrees arrive in the intended condition, and without delay. FedEx does not deliver on Sunday, so we must ensure that your meals arrive by Saturday.

Additionally, the FAA regulates the amount of dry ice that can be included in your order, so we have to carefully calculate the amount included with your program.

Why did I still receive an order if I have until Wednesday to cancel my program?

Our team of expert chefs and Registered Dietitians work in advance to prepare your program. This is why we require that all holds, changes or cancellations for program members in their second week or beyond notify us of all holds or cancellations by Wednesday at 5 p.m., ET, the week before the next week's order arrives.

If you notify us after this deadline, we have already prepared your entrees and your order will be on its way to you.

Please know that you are always able to cancel future orders by our deadlines.

What type of container is used for your entrees?

We use a recyclable tray that is completely BPA free.
