What You Should Know
Bistro MD Sport is a meal delivery service tailored to the nutritional needs of an athlete. The Bistro MD plan is designed for weight loss with reduced calorie meals.

Testimonials are listed throughout the website, but all are from people using the Bistro MD program for weight loss.

Home meal delivery for athletes.
The most confusing aspect of the Bistro MD Sport plan is the lack of dedicated menus for athletes. The “Order Now” button takes the visitor to a page where they can choose a specific meal delivery plan. Four plans are available – full week with snacks, full week without snacks, workweek with snacks and workweek without snacks. The prices range from $130 to $180, depending on the meal plan ordered.
The menu plan includes many options for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks. Pictures of each meal are provided and a complete description tells the visitor the exact contents of each meal. Breakfasts include buckwheat pancakes with Canadian bacon and chicken and mushroom crepes with zucchini and sweet potato hash, among others. Lunches include blue cheese meatloaf with pureed cauliflower and steamed broccoli and curried chicken with cous cous. Dinners cheese ravioli and gulf rock shrimp primavera. Snacks include protein chips and mini cheesecakes.
While the meal plans are expensive, the dieter will likely spend more money on shopping for healthy foods than the total cost of the meals with Bistro MD Sport. The meals are flash frozen, so a microwave or oven is needed to reheat meals. A large amount of freezer space is required to keep meals frozen.
A total of 1,100 to 1,400 calories per day are supplied per day with the full plan (meals and snacks). Depending on the total calories consumed before starting the Bistro MD Sport plan, this could cause severe hunger after only a few days.

The Bistro MD Sport portion of the Bistro MD website claims meals are designed specifically for athletes. This is simply not the case. The same meals are used for people trying to lose weight and athletes, which is a bit confusing. Athletes require more than 1,100 to 1,400 calories per day, especially during times of active fitness.
