New to the area and wanting to minimize time doing food prep the first few months while catching up on administrivia and settling in at work My Chefs by Request was the option I took seeing as it had some PR in the Paleosphere online. I've been eating Paleo (it's not a diet, it's a mindset) for several years, not intended to lose weight. It was absolutely refreshing to find a service that controls ingredients for you, saving the random ingestions of gluten/wheat, soy, etc. that I'd really rather avoid for reasons scientific and health. They even let you avoid a handful (up to 4) ingredients for allergy reasons which makes this possible for me, otherwise I couldn't do it. I've been getting deliveries the night prior for about a month, coming in mini lunch coolers with massive ice packs delivered around 8pm up until the morning. Most of mine come in the evening. They've only missed one delivery due to a driver issue and had great customer service handling it, not counting that day for my total. I do it 4 days a week for lunch, dinner and snack. The meals rotate through the different meats chicken, turkey, pork, beef, sometimes seafood and generally they are fairly tender considering the lean cut (see later criticism). The steak even has a little pink which for a service like this is refreshing. The real value is a variety of sauces and vegetables (made with ingredients I can trust) that helps mix things up more than I would. It's usually more salad like for lunch and more meat and veggie style for dinner. The snacks were more substantial than I'd guessed, more like fruit salads, coconut custards, etc. I was expecting just a handful of almonds. Overall, I've been very happy for the time, effort and stress this has saved me and for that I highly recommend them.
WAY BETTER THAN EXPECTED. I also consider myself a lover of fine foods so my standards are higher than most. Which is why I really love CBR - the food is fresh, delicious, and healthy to boot. I'm on the Paleo at the recommendation of my doctor, and have been consistently surprised by the flavors, textures and variety of foods on the plan. Having lunch and dinner delivered to my door daily is pretty friggin nice too. We're spending about $200 more a month on food now than we were before, but the time and calories saved is definitely worth the extra expense. No more arguments about what's for dinner, no more desperate decisions to order pizza because it's easy. And I'm satisfied! I'll also add that I've found their customer service to be TOP-NOTCH. Logan and Kimmy have been extraordinarily helpful. I travel for business frequently, and they've let me move meals and whole days to fit my schedule. They're also great about subbing foods, though I haven't had to do that since I've enjoyed every meal so far. I just renewed my order for another 5 weeks. Extremely pleased.
I love this place for the convenience. The idea of having three healthy "Paleo" meals without having to shop, prepare, cook and serve is worth it's weight in gold. Which is a good thing because sometimes it feels like that's what they are charging. It's definitely not cheap - but I feel it's worth the money. You cannot put a fair monetary value on time and this saves me lots of that. I spoke with Kimmi via phone and email a few times and she's been wonderful. Helped me tailor my plan and I've had no issues with the delivery. I like most of the meals - and what I don't like, it's mostly because it's something I haven't tried before. Since I stick to the three meals provided, I choke it down anyway. Healthy food isn't always tasty. :) Besides, I only have these meals M-F to keep me going. So far I've lost 38 lbs. and couldn't be happier with the results. And definitely could not have done it without this service.
I've been trying a variety of nationwide fresh diet delivery services, and have to say that Chef by Request has been one of my favorites. They were the first place I tried, and it made it hard for most of the ones that followed as I was spoiled with my first experience. The food variety is excellent, while the calories were kept low. I loved having such fresh ingredients, with many foods I probably wouldn't have eaten on my own. The evening snack bars are a total treat, and they have enough variety you won't be eating the same ones all the time. I'll be getting extras in my next order to share with my kids. Once I'm done trying out the other services on my list, I'm 95% sure I'll be going back to Chef by Request. Even the overnight deliveries were pretty great as they provide plenty of ice packs to keep things well refrigerated.
My husband and I have been getting the lunches and dinners (zone diet) for quite awhile now, with the main incentive being healthy convenience. The weight loss potential is a side benefit. I love the salads the best. I love how fresh all the vegetables are. I like the many herb and fruits they use which keep one from getting tired of turkey or chicken or pork. The prawns and salmon are quite good; never over cooked. I liked the beef, but opted out to reduce red meat in my diet. I was inspired to write this because the entree today was turkey and fresh green beans and although it looked familiar, the flavors were so unique from anything I had had lately that I was impressed once again with how they keep making the food taste different and how it is always fresh.

I hate cooking and was looking for a way to eat healthy food that actually tastes good. The LossArts meal delivery service has been awesome. Every morning I have a little green cooler waiting for me filled with food for the day. The food is the perfect size for me and I can take them to work and to the gym. The program says that if you eat the full daily meals then you will lose weight. I did not start this service for weight loss, but I ended up losing weight simply by eating this food! It is so good and the chef really pays attention to detail. I have tried Zone, Paleo and Gluten Free and love them all. My favorite is the Zone. The Chef makes the best salad dressing I have ever had. No joke.
I signed up mainly because of time constraint (and laziness when it comes to cooking), but I've been pretty impressed with the variety and freshness of the food. A lot of the other programs I tried had frozen food that just didn't seem healthy. Obviously you pay a bit more for this, but it seems worth it to me. The meals were balanced but seemed really small at first. A few times, I even used a calorie calculator to see just how many calories I was getting. This ended up being pretty eye-opening, because I was eating WAY too much before. I've had a very positive experience, lost a lot of weight and feel better overall. It's a pretty good value for the service.
Chef by Request delivers healthy and tasty meals. In addition to the great variety of meals and great flavor, the service has always been exceptional and accommodating to my travel and work schedule. I've loved the flexibility and the consistency in knowing what I'm getting and when I'm getting it. And of course, who can complain about the built in benefit of weight loss? Love this company!
Let me just start by saying I'm a foodie!! Chef by request has more than exceeded my expectations for variety and flavor with their daily menu choices and to top it it has both helped me lose those pesky 10lbs and keep them off with the great food provided and the lastly the convience of their timely delivery and not having to think and plan tasty and nutrtious meals. I could keep going:)
