Bistro MD Review - Before & After

How it Works

BistroMD is one of the simplest diet meal delivery plans in the industry. Everything is taken care of from nutrition and shopping, to cooking and shipping, so that all you’ll need to do is pick your plan and wait for the food to arrive. 

Orders can be placed online or over the phone. Once you’ve ordered, you can begin to customize your diet with the help of registered dietitians. Control your weekly menu, set taste preferences, and choose a plan that meets your dietary needs. BistroMD offers gluten-free, diabetes-friendly, and menopause-friendly diets, among others. Your menu plan is flexible and can be changed to suit your taste.

Variety of Food Offered

Breakfasts include both sweet and savory options such as apple cinnamon oatmeal with scrambled eggs or bagel sandwich with egg, turkey sausage and cheddar, while lunches range from hatch green chile and pork stew to tilapia with smoky tomato sauce. Dinners feature lasagne with garden marinara, grilled salmon with lemon Dijon dressing and meatloaf with honey bourbon glaze.

The main meal plans include diabetic, gluten-free and menopause-friendly plans. All plans include a mix of lean proteins, complex carbohydrates, and healthy fats.

The menu can also be customized to include specific dishes (although these are not offered as complete plans) such as:

  • Vegetarian
  • Vegan
  • Low carb
  • Heart healthy
  • Low sodium
  • Dairy free

If you have food allergies or more specific taste preferences, contact customer care for help customizing your menu when you sign up. Registered dietitians are available to help you craft the right diet plan for your needs over the phone or via Skype.

Help & Support

BistroMD features an in-depth FAQ section with answers to commonly asked questions. In addition, email support and phone support is open from 8am-5pm EST. You’ll also have unlimited access to support from trained dietitians and wellness consultants.

Here’s the Skinny

If you’re a naturally healthy eater, who enjoys fresh foods, BistroMD is not for you. The meals arrive frozen and heated up in the microwave, they’re somewhat reminiscent of airplane food.  But if you’re struggling to lose weight and need guidance, the service will help you stay the course to meet your goals.

Because it's the best luck I've had with a diet plan company. I had tried a few others but Bistro MD was the only one that stuck. A little pricy though compared to food shopping yourself
