Healthy Gourmet Meals Delivered to Your Home

BistroMD is a doctor-designed gourmet meal delivery service. Our original recipes and diet meals, developed by a team of nutritionists and award-winning chefs, are delivered right to your door.


What is bistroMD?

BistroMD is the nation's leading weight loss meal delivery service, offering scientifically-balanced and nutritionally-packed meals directly to doorsteps across the entire nation.

Healthy 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.

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.

BistroMD's Gourmet Meals Delivery Program

Along with being nutritionally adequate, bistroMD rejects the idea that healthy weight loss food must be bland and boring and is passionate about providing flash-frozen, gourmet meals at home that are perfectly suited for weight loss and overall health!

But frozen does not mean meals are not fresh… The bistroMD chefs hand-select the freshest ingredients, create artfully-prepared entrees, then flash fresh each meal. Flash freezing is a method that inhibits spoilage when food is frozen during their peak ripeness, which helps meals withhold their freshness and food safety through careful packaging. And flash frozen meals not only retain their freshness, but may even be the freshest food offered! Produce, especially, is flash frozen within just a few short hours following harvest, locking in key nutrients and preserving its flavor.

BistroMD believes healthy eating is not about eating less, but about eating better. Co-founder and foodie Ed Cederquist is committed to using the highest quality sources in each entrée. Working with the bistroMD chefs, meals 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.

BistroMD is also committed to using 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.
