After its founding in 2012 by Mike Starks, Personal Trainer Food (PTF) became a household name in the weight loss industry. Starks created this product after helping his wife lose a significant amount of weight by eating healthier foods. Today, Personal Trainer Food suggests that people can lose 20 pounds in just four weeks if they are willing to try following one of its healthy meal plans. Frozen meals can be ordered online and are easily stored in the freezer until it is time to eat.
Each weight loss program, or diet plan, has its own formula for weight loss. PTF focuses its weight loss plan 90 percent on food, and 10 percent on exercise. Its meals are high in protein and focused on introducing whole foods into your diet. Its menu options are broken down by breakfasts (mainly meat and eggs), entrees (meat and vegetables), vegetable sides, and snacks (nuts, seeds, meat, cheese, and shakes).
PTF has been reviewed and received press from a number of large media outlets including Forbes, Food Network, Fox News, CBS News, and more.
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 and features to help you successfully find and order food online that will help you maintain a healthier lifestyle.
Personal Trainer Food has over 75 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.
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:
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.
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. Make sure that you check for discounts before checking out.
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. PTF also now offers an email coaching series with its founder Mike Starks.
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.
Another frustration mentioned by customers in online reviews is faulty packaging. Customers have reported that packages have arrived at 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.
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.
I am now allergic to preservatives, so I get a rash.
The food is pretty good and I lost 10 pounds in one month. I got very tired of eating the bland vegetables.
It really works. I personally lost 22 lbs and it was easy to follow. Food is delicious and pre-measured for a whole month at a time.
Excellent choice of portion controlled meats/seafood and quality vegetables.
Great food...I lost 15lbs and my hubby lost 20 in one month.
Food is ok. Concerned with ice packing of food. I have received orders that we not frozen, but PTF sent me a replacement order.
Very convenient to eat healthy. Food is great.
sometimes the food pouch with chicken was a bit salty. The fish is also salty and overcooked

Calorie content not specific. Not sure ow many calories, protein, fat and carbs you are getting each meal.
i was pleasantly surprised how good the food was, especially the omelet. I did lose weight. It is a lower carb option.
Hoy soggy veggies get monotonous pretty quick.
I have used Personal Trainer Food for almost a year now. I lost almost 60 lbs! It has been a slow and steady race and I have been able to maintain and follow the guidelines. The food has been delicious and I look forward to my deliveries. The customer service is THE best I have ever worked with, answering me quickly and to my satisfaction. Many people have asked me about the program, seeing my results, and I have shared it many, many times.
Easy to prepare for we lazy ones! lasts me for several months.
food is okay, orders sometimes came in defrosted, you need A LOT of freezer space.
Good food, tasty. I wish they were lower in sodium.
Delicious fresh food! It is so convenient to have on the go!
Quality of some of the food. Some of the meats have gristle, cartilage, skin or uneven textures for the type of meat it is supposed to be. Some of the vegetables do not appear to be fresh frozen or have steams in them. The price has gone up considerably since I have been using the service and there have been less coupons or discounts.Shipping, ordering, convenience and selection are still strengths.
The food is delicious quick easy healthy
Easy, effortless, taste fantastic, fulfilling, and just the right portions.
The food is tasty and easy! Veggie portions are smalland both broccoli and cauliflower include too many fat tough stems. Love the variety and spicy offerings! Wish you didn't use styrofoam as insulation.
Once in a while the veggies could be better.
Sometimes the meat is chewy and some of it doesn't taste great. The chicken thighs also have too much fat .
Easy and convenient, great for person who doesn't cook.
The quality of the food is not what it once was.

I like the ease of use, the portions, the proteins and the breakfasts.
Easy plan to follow, easy prep and good food!!
I like the food and the variety to choose from, but it would be great if you could order order smaller quantities. Not everyone had a freezer large enough for an entire months worth of food.
Like the convenience, food is good quality
Convenience, great price, good selection.
Convenience of being prepackaged, food is good, easy to prepare
Prompt Delivery- Quality Meals - Diverse Fresh Selection
Healthy food; great tasting; good variety; good for weight loss if you follow plan; very convenient for a quick meal.
Food is decent and a big selection is available
PTF is quick, easy, and affordable. It helps me stick to eating whole foods that are low carb
I found excellent food, both in taste & choice!
Everything from the delicious food & extremely courteous customer service!
It was really good, convenient and with discounts cost less than my grocery expense.
A bit pricey for what you actually get. Menu choices not updated frequently enough
It has been very effective for me. I have lost over 60 pounds and then on the plan for more than four years. It has helped me maintain the weight I lost. I am also single and run my own business so it is very convenient when it is meal time and I know I'm getting something healthy.
Delicious taste & filling. Some veggies retain water inside the pouch.
Really good food. Very convenient. Great for my life. Easy to stick to plan. Good prices.
Range of products/flavors, easy and convenient
After a while it made me sick to eat it. I would actually gag. It's like I hit a wall and although I did good for a few months. I got burned out. It all started to taste the same.
Took my bacon away and switched it with country ham
Tasty food and nice portions. To me, the quality is far superior to Nutri-System and MediFast.
Delicious, convenient meals; flexibility about shipping times; frequent discounts; easy and non-judgmental advice and articles, so no extra stress and research constantly putting food in mind.
Too much sodium in their food and the food portions are far too small for an active man.
The breakfast eggs are absolutely horrible. I don't order it any more. Many of the other meals I like a lot.
Food is expensive, especially considering that the vegetables are poor quality.
easy on-line ordering and on-time delivery, plus food is consistently good!
