Gluten Free

Looking for tips about healthy gluten free living? Need information about losing weight with a gluten free diet? You've come to the right place!

The bistroMD Gluten Free Diet Program

Adhering to a weight loss diet may be difficult as is. Top on the need for gluten-free foods, and you may feel completely overwhelmed. But with bistroMD, you can have the best of both worlds by receiving a gluten-free diet sure to accelerate weight loss results!


What Is a Gluten-Free Diet?

A gluten-free diet is exactly how it sounds, a diet being free of gluten. While it has received a bad reputation in the health and diet world, gluten is simply a general term to define the protein naturally found in wheat, rye, barley, and triticale. People have flocked to the diet in hopes to gain health and lose weight, though dismissing gluten can actually be risky without a need to and careful supervision and practice. Nonetheless going gluten-free encourages the consumption of more fruits, veggies, and lean proteins, but "gluten-free" labeled on fiber bars, pastas, and other processed foods is not an immediate stamp of approval. Additionally, cutting out gluten-containing grains and their products may limit fiber and valuable vitamins and minerals within the diet.

However, the benefits outweigh the potential risks for those managing Celiac disease and other health conditions particularly affecting the digestive tract. Going gluten-free is necessary for individuals diagnosed with Celiac disease and managing a sensitivity or intolerance, as its removal is the only way to mitigate short and long-term side effects. While there are a number of naturally gluten-free foods, such as whole grains, fresh produce, and lean proteins available and safe to eat, bistroMD's gluten-free program takes out the guesswork, meets nutritional needs, and tastes great!

BistroMD's Gluten-Free Diet

BistroMD is the nation's leading weight loss meal delivery service, providing well-balanced meals straight to doorsteps. Being doctor-designed, dietitian-approved, and chef-prepared, consumers can rest assured their meals are nutritionally adequate to meet their needs and offer flavors they desire. BistroMD also offers specialty diets, including a gluten-free program and men and women's programs, with the option to receive a five or seven-day program:

5 Day Program
A gluten free program for people who are dedicated to losing weight or maintaining their weight loss goals, but who do not require seven full days of entrees. The five-day program is ideal for those who like to cook their own meals on the weekends, or whose busy schedules require them to eat out several times a week. Consumers will receive five breakfasts, five lunches, and fiver dinners designed to promote healthy weight loss.

7 Day Program
BistroMD's most comprehensive gluten free program suited for those who want to look and feel their best today, tomorrow, and for years to come. The seven-day program is also perfect for those who would like knowing their whole week is planned out. Consumers can expect to receive seven breakfasts, seven lunches, six dinners and MyNight, a weekly opportunity to have a structured break from the program.

The two programs range from $130 to $160 and include the option of our snack program, also known as EATS (Essential and Tasty Snacks). Our essential and tasty snacks are just $1.50 per snack, with women receiving two snacks per day and men receiving three snacks per day. All meals and snacks are tested to FDA gluten-free standards for your peace of mind. While food safety is key following a gluten-free diet, bistroMD does not skimp out on flavor options and varieties. And with selections including artichoke spinach and roasted red pepper frittata, smoked chipotle pork and eggs, blacked chicken with creamy smoked paprika sauce, meatloaf with honey bourbon glaze, eggplant lasagna casserole, sweet Carolina BBQ mix, and espresso fudge cookie bites, you can rest assured your flavor desires will be met!
