Meal Plan Process

Do you find it hard to eat healthy because you don’t have the desire or knowledge to cook healthy foods? Personal Trainer Food has a number of options to help you successfully find and order food online that will help you maintain a healthier lifestyle. The following options are available online:

  • Online Ordering — One of the great advantages of using Personal Trainer Food as a weight loss product provider, is that all of your ordering can be done online. All you need to do is go to the company website and select the foods and amounts of food that you would like to receive.
  • Personalized Plans — For those who struggle to establish a weight loss plan, this program helps you work with a health professional to establish a customized plan that should work for your body.
  • Simplicity — Many customers enjoy the simplicity of this program. No matter how hard it is for you to start a diet, this program helps you to stick to a strict eating regimen.

Menu Options

Personal Trainer Food has over 100 different meal/snack options for you to choose from. The majority of foods provided by PTF are high in protein and should keep you full for longer periods of time than the majority of other foods. Food options are categorized into the following categories: breakfast, entrées, vegetables, and snacks.

Weight Loss Meal Plans

If you are interested in investing in one of PTF’s weight loss plans, you will want to select the one that best adheres to your budget and your lifestyle. The following meal plan payment plans are currently available:

  • REV! — The REV! program was created for those who would like to lose weight quickly. It is considered to be an extreme fat-burning and accelerated weight loss plan. Some inclusions with this plan are daily email support, one-on-one weight loss coaching, a water bottle, weekly weight loss calls, a tape measure, and a lunch kit. The average cost for this plan is about $16 per day.
  • Core — The Core plan is perfect for those who would like to have lunch and dinner taken care of with the constant support of a weight loss coach. If you decide to use this plan, you will be charged an average of $14 per day for your lunch and dinner and will have access to email support and personal coaching with a weight loss coach.
  • You Choose — Personal Trainer Food is aware that life can become very busy. In order to provide options for people who may not have a lot of time or who are looking for something more flexible, PTF created the You Choose plan. This plan allows you to choose whatever meals you would like for any day that you would like. You may combine any breakfast, lunch, dinner, or snack foods that you would like as you build out your weekly menu. This plan usually costs about $16 per day.

New Menu Items

One challenge with a number of weight loss product providers is a lack of variety. PTF has been able to overcome this challenge by providing over 100 different meal options for customers. New items are being added regularly to ensure that customers do not grow tired of PTF meals.

Discounts and Coupons

Personal Trainer Food offers a number of discounts and coupons throughout the year. If you are looking for discounts, you may want to check on Groupon or Amazon as they both have PTF on their sites.

At the time that this review was written, a 30 percent discount was being provided on all purchases. Make sure that you check for discounts before checking out.

Access to Coaches and Health Experts

Many customers feel that having access to a weight loss coach during their time with PTF is helpful. They feel that they are able to ask hard questions and get qualified answers. Weight loss coaches also help keep people motivated to stick to their plan and avoid processed foods.

If you are interested in finding out more about these weight loss coaches, you can find more information online or talk to a customer service representative on the website’s chat bot.

The Bad

  • Failed Deliveries
  • Poor Packing
  • Portions

Failed Deliveries

Common challenges in the weight loss product industry include failed deliveries. Current customer reviews on the internet have mentioned frustration with deliveries being late or never coming at all. If you are concerned about this, you should work with customer service during the delivery period to ensure that your delivery is tracked to your door.

A couple of reviews have also mentioned that their deliveries were reported as “delivered” by the mailing service, but they never found the package at their home. Be aware that this could happen to you before you order.

Poor Packing

Another frustration mentioned by customers in online reviews is faulty packaging. Customers have reported that packages have arrived to their homes with the ice being melted, food being defrosted, and packages of food being partially opened. Unfortunately, though customer service representatives said that the food would still be fine to eat, some customers report getting sick from eating the foods that had defrosted during the shipping process.

Though PTF has a money-back guarantee, a number of exceptions are specified in the terms and conditions. Make sure that you are aware of these if you begin to receive melted packages and defrosted foods.

Portions

Lastly, those who have not been eating very healthy foods have complained that the portions are very small. They do not feel like they are getting enough food and therefore they start to snack on other foods. Some have felt that the amount of food in each package is not always the same. Be sure to check for this when your food arrives to ensure that you are getting what you paid for. Also, if you feel that you need to supplement in other areas to ensure that you get enough food, consult your weight loss specialist for their recommendations for healthy snacks.

The Bottom Line

If you are looking to lose some weight and are willing to completely change your diet in the process, PTF may be a good option for you. Before trying it, we recommend that you try eating just vegetables and meat for a couple days to see how much energy you have and how you feel. Take advantage of online customer reviews before purchasing PTF products. This will help you know if it will be a good product for you.
