BistroMD Meal Plan Review and #Giveaway

bistroMD diet delivery
        As I am sure you have been seeing a lot of discussion lately, I am not only trying to lose weight but cleanse my system of all the toxins.  I am so sick of feeling helpless and over weight.  But with any diet, the key is still eating.  Your body needs some sort of nutrition in the proper portions.  Starving yourself really is just that and it almost is all for a waste because your body then works against you to store the fat you have instead of burning it.


        So here in lies my problem.  I try all these diets but either I can't eat the foods I love or I have a hard time staying on track with each meal/snack and calories.  Plus, as a personal cook, I hate nothing more than the "diet" microwave meals that taste terrible or fake.

        So when I started looking into all these different diets I also wanted to look into meal plans to go along with them.  I wanted everyone to know what other option were out there because they ARE out there!  BistroMD is one of them that I am so glad I discovered.

        BistroMD was developed by Caroline J. Cederquist, M.D., a board certified bariatric physician "as a way to help her patients maintain healthy weight loss on their own at home." Because you can customize your own meal plan, people from age 18 to 80 can still lose weight and feel good about it.

        "BistroMD is not just convenient, low-calorie food. Each meal and each day is designed with the proper combination of nutrients. From the amount of lean, adequate protein in our entrées and snacks to the proper balance of carbohydrates, fat and fiber; each ingredient is selected to provide the proper nutrition needed to promote healthy weight loss."

        What I love about this program is the support.  Not only do you get weekly deliveries so as your needs change so can this just like grocery shopping for yourself but you can find support through newsletters and their blog. There are also a bunch of health videos and free support from our expert dietitians.

        There is tons of food and snack available and everything tastes great.  The first think I noticed was the fact that the chicken was real chicken.  Now of course its somewhat real in the other microwave meal brands but it always tastes like crap and rubbery or whatnot.  This food tasted like it came from a grill, stove top, or oven - NOT A MICROWAVE.  Now this is my first go at a meal plan so I don't have another one to compare it to unless you count the other "frozen diet meals".

Cost:  $185 - 5 days Breakfast Lunch and Dinner (no snacks)
Available to purchase:  BistroMD 
Recommendation:  I think this price is kind of expensive but only because I am a couponer when grocery shopping.  In comparison to other delivery meal plans they are extremely reasonable in pricing in fact probably cheaper than most.  I actually liked these meals for once and it worked for me.

  5. I have lost 20 pounds since March, but I have hit a plateau. I would love to win this giveaway to not only continue my weight loss, but also to balance my nutrients. I read that BistroMD has lean, adequate protein in their entrées and snacks, proper balance of carbohydrates, fat and fiber & each ingredient is selected to provide the proper nutrition needed to promote healthy weight loss. That's just what I am looking for.

  7. I'd love to win this because I have lost 70 lbs in the past year and a half from my job and from running 30+ miles per week. This would be nice because I was recently injured at work so now I can't work out and I'm worried about gaining it all back!

  16. I've struggled with my weight, (going up and down) for quite a few years now. I lost 20 then just stalled... A lot of it is the work involved to count/measure and keep track of everything I'm using to prepare supper .. I work a 40 hour week, have a hobby farm (chickens, pigs, horses, goat) and live an hour from work. By the time I'm doing my last chore of the day, dinner I'm about out of steam....
