Feel the Benefits of Fresh Food with Meal Prep Delivery

Consuming fresh food is one of the most sure shot ways to lose weight and gift invaluable health benefits, though most do not have the time or resources to cook and eat healthy day-in and day-out. Find out how meal prep delivery for weight loss can be your solution.


A poor diet rich in sugary, high-fat and refined foods continues to be one of the many factors of America's rising obesity rates.

While consuming more fresh foods can help deter such statistics, there are many barriers that interfere with eating healthier, one of them being greater access to overly processed convenience foods readily available when in a pinch.

But with demanding work schedules and responsibilities, most do not have the time or resources to cook healthy and eat fresh food day-in and day-out.

Fortunately, a meal delivery program featuring fresh and healthy foods to lose weight can be the solution.

How Does Fresh Food Benefit Me?

Consuming fresh food is one of the most sure shot ways to not only lose weight, but gift the body with the nutrients it needs to function at its prime.

Eating fresh food controls the intake of foods overly processed with sodium, sugar, trans fat and an array of harmful compounds and chemicals.

Not providing nutrition the body needs can lead to immediate feelings of fatigue. To make matters more problematic, there is a greater risk of opting for innutritious foods in desperation to provide a quick, but very brief, rush of energy.

A diet devoid of nutrient-dense foods also increases the risk of obesity, diabetes, heart disease, certain forms of cancer, and other health conditions. An alarming recent study published in JAMA Internal Medicine also found people have a 14 percent higher risk of early death for every 10 percent increase in ultraprocessed foods they consume, including in the forms of snacks and desserts.

So in a busy society laden in overly processed foods, one can reap the benefits of fresh food with a meal prep delivery service.

What are the advantages of a fresh food delivery program? The advantages of a fresh food delivery program are unique, diverse, sure to accommodate all lifestyles, and include:

1. Taking the guesswork out of healthy eating
2. Ensuring proper portions and nutrients
3. Providing convenience and easing busy lives
4. Allotting more time for yourself to do the things you love
5. Eating less processed food and lowering the risks of chronic diseases
6. Fueling the body with more energy to sustain an active lifestyle
7. Boosting the immune system thanks to greater antioxidants, vitamins and minerals
8. Powering the mind and brain to improve cognition

The benefits of fresh food are also personal and intimate. Here is how meal prep delivery for weight loss benefited Gretchen.

Gretchen's Story with BistroMD

After Gretchen beat ovarian cancer, she had little energy to cook and needed a fresh food delivery service that was both healthy AND convenient.

"BistroMD was the best discovery I have ever made. I noticed an immediate change. I felt remarkable and it was such a surreal feeling. I was able to lose 15 pounds and the portions plus the nutrition helped get my body back into balance."

Gretchen loves receiving the compliments from her colleagues and students and admits she could not have done it without the help of fresh food from bistroMD.

And you, too, can benefit from healthy foods to lose weight and feel great delivered to your doorstep!

Fresh Meals for Weight Loss Delivered to You

If looking for something fast and convenient without the hassle of frequenting the grocery store, bistroMD offers a fresh food delivery service to assist in weight loss.

BistroMD is backed by the 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 met.

Every meal is doctor-designed and dietitian-approved and 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.

What's more, bistroMD uses the freshest ingredients to create over 200 recipes and a customizable menu to satisfy all taste preferences.

Meals are also flash frozen, a freezing technique that uses extremely cold and circulating air to keep ice crystals small and prevent moisture loss. The majority of frozen foods are frozen during their peak ripeness, acting as nature's very own "pause button."

Produce is generally flash frozen within hours of harvest to lock in key nutrients and preserve taste, with frozen foods even showing a greater nutritional value compared to products purchased at the store!

Truly, it only takes a few weeks to see results. So start reaping the benefits of fresh food today!
