Prepared Meal Reviews
The Paleo Mom Collection
Did you notice the portion sizes of the Bistro Md meals? More impressive than dinner or lunch is breakfast. Now, I am not historically a big breakfast eater.

Umm, this beats operation starvation any day! Now, its time to talk about what we experienced with The Fresh Diet.
Immediately, I was disappointed in the variety offered with the Fresh Diet. I chose the more expensive option which allows you to customize your meals. I had already been accustomed to the Bistro Md customization process which gives you a minimum of entree selections per meal. The Fresh Diet only had 3 entree selections per meal.

Seriously, I should have just bought a packet of nuggets at Chick-Fil-A and saved a ton of money. Evelyn is trying to figure out how this snack is going to fill her up. Honestly, money was not a main concern of mine when choosing a diet plan. I see it as an investment in my health, so I would gladly pay top dollar for a diet plan that works.
However, I expect the price to be worth it and we did not think the Fresh Diet is worth twice as much as Bistro Md. Frankly, the Fresh Diet should cost less.
Overall, we felt like the Fresh Diet is based on calorie restriction alone. Here is a sample of what you will eat on the Bistro Md meal delivery diet: Yes, my kids like Bistro Md meals too. They stole my Pork Tenderloin with plum sauce, and I caught them in action. I did not break any weight loss records for my first week on the Bistro Md diet, but I did lose 3 lbs.
