The Biggest Loser Meal Plan is a meal-delivery service that provides you with convenient meals, delivered right to your door, so that you can eat and lose weight, just like the contestants from the hit weight loss reality series.
The plan, which used to be a joint production between the Biggest Loser nutrition experts and BistroMD, has switched kitchens and is now partnering with eDiets, a leading provider of personalized nutrition, fitness and weight-loss programs.
Anyone who has ever tried a meal-delivery diet knows that sometimes the food can taste fair, at best, but the chefs at eDiets are committed to making your weight loss journey a nutritious and tasty one.
The new Biggest Loser Meal Plan, which was just launched on September 1, is available through two flexible meal plan options: The 5-day meal plan and 7-day meal plan. By following the nutritional and caloric model seen on the Biggest Loser, these specially designed meals provide a healthy and convenient way to maintain and lose weight at home.
Each plan gives you three meals a day, plus a snack. One of the main differences that sets this new Biggest Loser Meal Plan apart from other meal-delivery diets is that the dishes are shipped in chill-fresh coolers, rather than coming frozen or shelf-stable. Therefore, with the new plan, you know you are eating freshly-prepared meals, rather than those that have been prepared by a machine and frozen in a deep freezer or loaded up with preservatives so that can hang out on a shelf for a few months. In fact, all of the Biggest Loser Meal Plan meals do not contain powdered or dehydrated foods, MSG, trans fat, nor artificial sweeteners.
Once you select the plan that works best for you, simply choose the meals you want to eat and have your fork and appetite ready.
Perhaps the most important part of any diet is the food. While the original Biggest Loser Meal Plan offered some flavorful eats like waffles for breakfast, black-bean chili for lunch and tilapia for dinner, this new plan steps up the culinary offerings, almost to the point of calling the menu gourmet.
Here is a look at some of the delish and low-calorie dishes.

Keep in mind that this new Biggest Loser Meal Plan does not offer many options for the vegetarian. If you eat fish, but shun meat, you have a few more options available.
