The Diet Food Delivery Program That's Right for You

Diet food delivery continues to gain in popularity. But with so many companies offering programs, how do you choose? See how bistroMD's doctor-designed, dietitian-approved, and chef-prepared meals can work for you!


Diet food delivery continues to gain in popularity, assisting in weight management without the need for significant time requirements and demands in such a fast-paced society.

But with so many companies offering diet food delivery programs and claiming to be good for both you and your health, how do you choose?

See how bistroMD is right for you, as home delivery meals are never devoid of flavor and variety, all while being doctor-designed to ensure personal needs are being met!

Diet Food Delivery Programs Don't Have to be Boring

BistroMD rejects the idea that so-called "diet food" is boring and believes healthy eating is not about eating less, but about eating better.

Working with a team of seasoned chefs, co-founder and foodie Ed Cederquist ensures all meals are based on the pillars of gourmet cuisine. BistroMD is committed to utilizing ingredients from responsible sources by selecting environmentally-responsible seafood, always sourcing rBGH-free beef, using hormone-free chicken per U.S. law, and partnering with local, family-owned farms whenever possible.

Meals are always prepared with the freshest ingredients possible without unwanted fillers and unnecessary ingredients, including no trans fats, artificial colorings, MSG, chemical fillers, nitrates, added sulfites or the artificial sweetener aspartame.

Ultimately, bistroMD strongly and sincerely believes in integrity: Meals are never offered that they would not eat at their own dinner table. Meals are full of flavor and nutrients!

Take this pork tenderloin with olive tapenade recipe, for example. While this is a meal likely not expected from a diet food delivery, it is a delectable, yet wholesome meal on the bistroMD menu.

This juicy slow-roasted pork tenderloin is garnished with a delicious olive tapenade made with finely chopped olives, capers and olive oil, which is then presented over toasty saffron orzo pasta and served with colorful and hearty green asparagus spears.

But that is just one of out of 200 mouthwatering, guilt-free recipes…

BistroMD is Doctor-Designed for the Best Results

In addition to being bountiful in variety and flavor, bistroMD's diet food delivery is doctor-designed to ensure the best results in terms of weight loss and overall health.

Meal plans are backed by science and research of founding weight loss physician Dr. Caroline Cederquist. With over 20 years of medical expertise in her field, Dr. Cederquist works with a team of Registered Dietitians to ensure nutritional requirements for healthy and long-term weight loss are being met.

Every doctor-designed and dietitian-approved meal provides a scientific balance of complex carbohydrates, whole grains and fiber along with lean protein and healthy fat ratios. In fact, 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 carbohydrate.

Diet food delivery options also include standard men and women's, gluten-free, heart-healthy, diabetic, and menopause programs to accommodate more specific health conditions and needs.

Truly, the best diet food delivery program is designed to address personal needs and preferences to produce the best results. And bistroMD can and will do just that!
