This is an honest and sincere review. I am not on a diet but very nutrition conscious and as I spend a great deal of time traveling, always looking for healthy convenience foods. Have tried Freshly, Home Chef, Blue Apron, Gobble, etc. Freshly is the most comparable to BistroMD as it is a meal service that comes ready to heat and eat. BistroMD is not cheap compared to frozen grocery store meals, but much cheaper than Freshly with most meals coming in between $9-$12. Protein is very high (25-35g) , calories very low (generally 250-250), carbs low to medium. Flavors and textures have been amazing-have not had any rubbery meat like I came to expect from Freshly. The only meal I didn't enjoy so far is the shrimp etouffee, but I think that was mostly because I don't care for okra's weird texture. I would definitely use BistroMD if I was on a diet, pinched for time, etc.
