As you age, there may be various reasons why your weight loss journey is a continuous uphill battle. These reasons may include a slowing metabolism, health conditions, menopause, genetics or certain medications you may be taking. You may notice that weight gain is easy to achieve, but weight loss may seem impossible. Fortunately, the BistroMD diet is designed to provide your body with nutrients, boost your metabolism and encourage a steady rate of weight loss each week. BistroMD is designed to reset your metabolism, allowing you to lose weight and successfully keep it off. 

An additional appealing feature of BistroMD is that exercise is not required to lose weight on this diet. You are guaranteed weight loss simply by eating the food that is prepared and delivered to your door. If you have mobility, flexibility or other physical issues, a plan that doesn’t require exercise may be especially beneficial.

An unhealthy diet, especially in the long term, can pave the way for numerous health issues, including heart conditions and high blood pressure. Doctors typically prescribe medication, along with a recommendation for a healthier, low-sodium diet, to combat these type of health conditions. Fortunately, BistroMD can deliver nutritious and healthy low-sodium meals directly to your door. Each meal on the menu has been approved by a team of expert dietitians. 

Additionally, each chef-prepared entree is specifically designed to be delicious, and to promote optimal health. 


  • The BistroMD plan offers expert-hosted webinars designed to provide additional support and weight loss tips. 
  • Newsletters and weekly emails are sent to provide health information, including tips, motivation and healthy lifestyle suggestions. 
  • An online fitness portal is available to help plan workouts and track progress. The site also offers information on avoiding injuries and remaining active. 
  • Each meal is prepared by a professional chef, vacuum packed, frozen and finally shipped to your home.

  • BistroMD does not provide meetings or an online support group for additional encouragement and motivation.  
  • The chef-made gourmet meals offered by BistroMD may be too unusual or intimidating for people who prefer simple or basic prepared meals. 
  • BistroMD provides a pre-made menu to choose from. This approach may be unappealing to dieters who would prefer to choose their meals with more flexibility. 
  • BistroMD is only available in the U.S., so you won’t have access to the service if you are living out of the country or vacationing.

Bottom Line:

The BistroMD diet plan was developed in 2005 by Dr. Caroline J. Cederquist, a physician with over 20 years of weight loss and health expertise. BistroMD promotes the use of foods, not medicines, to help its members live healthier lives. With her husband by her side, Dr. Cederquist assembled a team of health experts, fitness experts and chefs to create the plan. As a result of these efforts, BistroMD was the first food delivery service to be created and launched by a medical professional.  

In 2014, Next Advisor rated BistroMD the Top Meal Delivery Diet Program. The plan has been endorsed by Dr. Phil, Dr. Oz and The Doctors. 

The intended benefit of BistroMD is to provide a solid and healthy diet that ensures consistent and healthy weight loss. Meals are customizable, and one-on-one dietician support is available as needed. The prices are some of the lowest in the market, and each meal is prepared by a gourmet chef.
