There's a reason why meal planners are using Hungryroot more frequently: It's really simple. Simply complete their survey, and the website will load your shopping basket with a variety of "healthy" items. Along with the food your questionnaire suggested you would enjoy, the package that shows up at your door also contains recipes selected by a chef that uses the ingredients in your shopping cart.

Fresh and lean

Keto and paleo fans take note: I know you'll adore Fresh N' Lean. Because the firm offers pre-made protein-based, gluten-free, and fiber-rich meals and delivers them to your door, it makes the claim that it is a substitute for the processed food that is occasionally included in the diets of many individuals.

Mirchandani appreciates how convenient it is and that all meals are prepared with completely prepared components despite the fact that everything arrives already prepared.

Simply microwave them, and presto! You have a satisfying, healthy lunch at your disposal. (You may receive four to twelve meals per week.) Freshly also offers a FreshlyFit option that allows you access to over 15 menu items inspired by the paleo and keto diets as well as information on your meal's low-carb, protein, and calorie content.

Sakara Life

you've come across at least one advertisement (or influencer post) for Sakara Life. The meal delivery service emphasizes "clean eating" and "feeding your soul," which, in their eyes, implies meals rich in plants for a range of health advantages, such as weight loss, improved digestion, greater energy, and other benefits.

Sakara_ Life

This is how it goes: You may cancel your meal plan any week you don't feel like getting orders or having your credit card charged because Sakara meals are delivered on a weekly basis. The delivery service really changes what they're offering every week, even though the menu is normally established each week so you can't pick and choose your meals.

Blue Apron

Many people adore the food delivery service Blue Apron. Diabetes may be managed using its health-conscious meal plans, which are also WW (previously Weight Watchers) certified. As a result, the firm now provides a collection of recipes that are compatible with the WW program and provide all the necessary information on the number of WW points contained in each meal.

Hello Fresh

Hello, Fresh is well-known as an uncomplicated, simple-to-use meal-delivery service and is also incredibly weight-loss concerned. According to nutritionist Leah Kaufman, RD, CDN, "their professional dietician assesses the meals before they are put on the menu to ensure they are both nutritious and balanced."


You already know how challenging it may be to practice portion control at home. Although it's crucial to always pay attention to what your body requires, Factor's delivery service collaborates with dietitians to provide a selection of portion-controlled plates as professional-approved guidance.

But what sets Factor apart from other meal delivery services is the fact that you also get free consultations with certified dietitians when you join up for the pre-portioned meals.

  • One of the most frequent errors when utilizing a meal delivery service, according to nutritionist Brenna Wallace, is ordering meals that aren't suited to your lifestyle.
  • She explains, "That's why I'd advise Factor to my clients." Regular consultations may really support your lifestyle, according to the do.

Another benefit is that every meal has a nutrition label that is available on their website and is minimal in salt and fat. If your nutritionist has advised you to keep an eye on your daily calorie intake in order to meet your weight reduction objectives, being aware of that information might help you remain within the prescribed range.


Famous chefs (including Alex Guarnaschelli, for those of you Chopped fans) and wellness specialists collaborated to develop recipes for this meal delivery service that are both beginners- and weight-loss-friendly.

Additionally, according to Kaufman, the firm has teamed with Atkins and the American Diabetes Association to enable customers to construct meals that are goal-focused, such as low-carb meals that are mostly protein-focused. Therefore, it is safe to state that Chef'd is a wise choice for anyone looking to reduce weight.

Purple Carrot

Step right up, vegans (or just veg lovers!). Purple Carrot, a completely vegan meal-delivery service, develops wholesome, plant-based recipes that are excellent for losing weight, especially since their meals are consistently brimming with fiber from veggies. The fiber in vegetables also helps you feel satisfied for longer.

Each meal feeds at least two people and includes nutritional information, which is essential for staying on track. According to Sharon Palmer, RDN, author of Plant-Powered for Life, if you're cooking for one, you'll have enough food for a healthy lunch the following day. Although it costs a little more than some of the other services available, if you can afford it, it's a fantastic choice.

Green Chef

This USDA-certified organic meal kit has a wide range of alternatives for vegetarians, omnivores, carnivores, gluten-free eaters, and followers of the paleo diet.

The pre-made sauces and dressings that come with many dishes may save you a ton of time. (However, Kaufman advises checking the nutritional information for the amount of sugar in your meals because dressings are sometimes loaded with this weight-loss inhibitor. Cut the sauce if it's not necessary to reduce calories.)

Overall, this service has Kaufman's nutritionist seal of approval for providing a selection of menus that "fit every person's nutritional needs and constraints" while also being reasonably low in salt, high in protein, and stuffed with wholesome, satiating fats like olive oil.


However, just because you don't have to do the chopping and sautéing doesn't imply that they are harmful to your weight loss objectives. Veestro provides prepared meals, which typically have a poor rap in terms of health.

According to Palmer, they're actually a huge improvement over the majority of the frozen foods in the freezer section. They are plant-based meals with a moderate calorie intake that are excellent for weight loss, she claims.

Veestro's meals are practically calorie-controlled because they are packaged and prepared for the microwave, which makes it simpler for you to keep track of your consumption and stay on track.

Veestro meals are also quite balanced, especially for veggie-centric food (which can be high in carbohydrates), providing you the vitamins and minerals you need to feel full for a longer period of time. another benefit? Additionally, Veestro provides three separate meal delivery services that are solely geared toward weight loss.
