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.
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.
Delicious food. Great service. The plan works for me.
The plain egg omelet was the worse. It appears to be the texture.
Food is fresh and made with all natural ingredients! I can't eat soy and there are several choices that do not contain soy!
Price is great for the volume, options and food quality seem low.
The varied menu allows you to mix and match your meals with new items coming out on a regular basis. Its tasty and natural food
In my personal experience, I was able to dramatically lose weight by committing myself to the program. I was able to refer friends and family and see first-hand their weight-loss.
Excellent from beginning to end. From packaging to delivery to options to variety to taste, they are excellent.
Super convenient, many meal options, and tastes fresh w/o preservatives
I enjoy the tasty variety and portion control
I love the convenience! And the food is yummy!
The food is delicious and easy, especially for a work night. The ease of the food is what made me try it. The quality is why I continued to order.
The food taste great. The delivery and packaging is convenient.
Mostly delicious, however, I did get a shipment about 4 years ago that was not very good
Easy to use and follow..easy to take to work. Very convenient
Easy meals ready to go. Tastes great, always the envy of the lunch room.
Taste, preparation time, ease of storage, improved health.
Fast shipping. Good Customer Service. Food tastes great and is convenient. Works for weight loss.
The program works, the price is reasonable, the food tastes God
PTF wins in taste, variety, cost and convenience when comparing to alternative options.
Good food, good price, great customer service, fast shipping
easy on-line ordering and on-time delivery, plus food is consistently good!
good food - on time delivery- reasonable pricing- good customer service
Some foods were more filling and better tasting than others.
Delicious, healthy and convenient food. Arrives frozen and each item takes under 2 minutes to prepare. Love PTF!
Easy and healthy although, for my personal situation, a bit expensive.
The frozen food is convenient, and food decent in flavor. Downside is storing, and that specials don't apply to those on a monthly subscription.
The food was quick & easy to serve and tasted pretty good.
It tastes very good and it's quite a nice selection.
The food for the most part is good. Would like to see more variation in choices.
With a busy lifestyle, eating something "healthier with flavor/taste," nutritional balance, portion management, ready-to-eat at a fair price point, has helped me lose/maintain my weight and be a repeat customer.
Too much food. Orders backed up even when I pushed them out
Good tasting food, convenient and great customer service. Have been very successful with this program. One less thing to worry about.
The food quality is very good and they have great customer service. I have food allergies and had a limited choice of food options.
Great experience using their products solid support not always the healthiest food choices
Really good but need to improve pricing choices
I think PTF tastes good. I have tried another food program and their food tasted bad. Also I like the ease of preparing the food. I do tend to ge5 tired of the diet food and crave pizza and spaghetti! Etc. I also crave sweets.
Tasty food choices prepped and ready to eat.
Real food and convenient. Great value. Healthy portions.
A little too much meat and not enough vegetables & fruits. You have to balance your meals.
Like the food and would buy conssitently, but the prices get too high when it comes out to over $10 per meal. Can get more value at places like Snap Kitchen with prices too high.
