Diet Meals: bistroMD vs. the 'Other Guys'

Diet Meals: bistroMD vs. the 'Other Guys'

Let's be real. When most of us think about diet meals, there are a few big name companies that almost immediately pop into our heads. However, ask yourself - does the one that shouts the loudest, or spends the most on big name endorsements automatically provide the superior product? We believe that the answer is no. Some of the 'other guys' have been around longer than bistroMD. They're the past. BistroMD is the future.

Why diet meals fail:

Usually diets meals fail to produce results because people don't like the food. Obviously you're not going to eat the food if you think it's disgusting. Here's the difference between bistroMD and the 'other guys': they all sell diet meals.

BistroMD provides life-transforming wellness in the form of healthy food that tastes great. We help you learn what it means to eat a healthy diet without depriving you of great tasting food.

With over 200 delicious recipes to choose from, program members will not have trouble finding something scrumptious to satisfy their taste buds.

Pia M., a yelp user from Summit, NJ couldn't agree more:

"What intrigued me from the beginning was the fact that this program was designed by a doctor (important to me, as I needed to lose more than 40 pounds when I started), but then the meals are developed and created by master chefs,” Pia M. said. "I have to say, the meals are delicious— from different crepes in the morning—even sweet potato pancakes with turkey sausage—to all different kinds of meals for lunch and dinner. It could be pasta, which feels like you're eating something 'forbidden', to different meats, even Asian meals to satisfy a particular craving."

Why we're different:

Another difference between bistroMD and the 'other guys' is that our program was created by Dr. Caroline J. Cederquist, our co-founder and board-certified bariatric physician. None of our friends in the industry can say the same of themselves.

A doctor at the helm allows us to better serve our program members. When a program member calls in with a question, we don't give them the run around. We go right to the source.

When you place an order with most of the 'other guys', you only receive your meal plan. When you order with bistroMD, you not only receive our delicious diet meals and healthy snacks, but you also have access to weekly program information and one-on-one support from our friendly and knowledgeable registered dieticians. The program information consists of helpful hints and useful information written by Dr. Cederquist and her staff, as well as access to our newsletter and our extensive health library.

We understand that everyone's bodies are different. For that reason, we offer a men's program and a women's program. Once you choose your program, you have the option of five days' worth of diet meals or seven days' worth of diet meals. With both options, you can select our tasty and delicious snacks called EATS. With the seven-day option, you have the option of participating in My Night—a free night when you can indulge in your favorite cravings or ask our registered dieticians for recipe recommendations and play chef for the night.
