How to Lose Weight the Right Way

How to Lose Weight the Right Way

How to lose weight. That’s certainly an age old question. There is not a universal plan because everyone is completely different; however, there is a science behind losing weight.

Do you want the scoop?

Here it is: first, you must change your perspective on that age old question, how to lose weight. At bistroMD, we believe the foundation of healthy weight-loss is based on real science and the unique knowledge that food is medicine.

Here’s another tip: if you want to lose weight, don’t try a fad diet or some sort of gimmick. They’re approach to “how to lose weight” is the false hope of extreme results with little effort.

Our program is based on the science and research of our founding weight-loss physician. With over 20 years of medical expertise in her field, Caroline J. Cederquist, M.D., works with our team of Registered Dietitians to ensure that the nutritional requirements for healthy and long-term weight loss are met in every entree.

Every bite you take follows this proven approach for how to lose weight. Our program provides 1,100-1,400 calories daily with 40-50% total caloric intake from lean, adequate protein, 20-25% of calories from healthy fats, and 30-35% from complex carbohydrates.

What you really want to know about: the food

Now that you’ve gotten the lowdown on the science behind our operation, you’re probably wondering about the food—naturally, because it’s the best part.

Understanding what your body really needs to lose weight, learning what ingredients to use and selecting healthy recipes, shopping, cooking and cleaning is a lot of work. But that’s why we’re going to do it for you.

Food can still be your friend while you’re on our diet program because with bistroMD, you don’t have to sacrifice great taste for nutrition. We give you the ability to once again enjoy what you’re eating and trust that every bite is more than just delicious; trust that it is perfectly designed for healthy weight loss, with you in mind.

With over 200 delicious recipes, you don’t have to sacrifice your love of food while you satisfy your body’s need to eat healthier.

So that’s the secret:

If you want to learn how to lose weight, you’ve got to educate yourself on basic healthy nutrition, figure out which foods to eat, what recipes to use, how to cook, etc. If that sounds like a lot, it’s because it is. We know you’re busy and you probably don’t have time to incorporate all of that into your already busy schedule.

That’s why we’re here—because we are the secret. We do all of that for you and deliver it right to your door.
