Be Fit Food is a meal delivery service that offers science-backed programs that support customers in achieving their health, wellness, and fitness goals. Their programs include a nutritionist-approved “Weight Loss” program that can be tailored to be “Rapid” or “Active”, depending on the customer’s desired pace of weight loss.
They also offer other options such as healthy meal bundles, snacks and extras, kids meals, and gift cards. All their ready-made meals are low-carb, calorie-controlled, and nutrient-dense, providing benefits such as lower blood pressure, increased satiety, sustained energy throughout the day, and improved sleep. They also deliver nationwide.
Be Fit Food offer two types of plans – Weight Loss and Healthy Meals as well as selling meals individually. They offer a range of 26 main meals, 10 breakfasts, and 3 smoothies, with a higher proportion of breakfast options than other meal delivery services. With only 26 main meals, the menu may become repetitive, especially for customers who opt for the 14-day commitment. The meal options do not appear to be regularly rotated or updated.
It’s worth noting that the average calorie content of a Be Fit Food meal is 223 calories, which is significantly lower than the typical calorie needs for most Australians. Therefore, caution is advised when following a weight loss plan, to ensure it is appropriate for your individual situation.
Ingredients & Preparation
Be Fit Food does not have a transparent policy regarding their meal production, making it difficult to determine if their meals would be suitable for those with allergies or intolerances.
As a result, it is not recommended for those with serious allergies. They do list the allergens for each meal on their website, which may be helpful for those trying to avoid certain ingredients. For vegetarians, the options are limited, with only 3 breakfast options and 7 meals available, which may not be sufficient to sustain variety in the long term.
Delivery & Packaging
Be Fit Food delivers to all Australian states and territories, with the exception of the Northern Territory. However, delivery to more remote areas, particularly in South Australia, Tasmania, and Western Australia, may not be available. It is recommended to check if Be Fit Food delivers to your specific postcode before placing an order. The standard delivery fee is $19.95 for all locations, which is relatively high compared to other meal delivery services. However, delivery is free for orders over $199.
In terms of packaging, Be Fit Food uses 100% recyclable materials for their packaging. The black meal containers and cardboard box can be rinsed and placed in a normal recycling bin. The silver liner should be placed in a soft plastics recycling bin at your local supermarket. The ice packs can be reused or the contents can be emptied down the sink and the casing can be recycled in the soft plastics bin along with the silver liner.
BeFitFood has great customer service and support, from dietician support to dedicated Facebook communities, to Live Chat with a human on their website, to email support ([email protected]) and a phone number to call (1300 263 257).
Pricing varies on the program you choose or whether you create your own box. When creating your own box, the main meals are priced at a high $13.95. It is more cost-effective to opt for one of the longer diet plans, where individual meal costs can be as low as $10. Even with this lower cost, the overall pricing is still quite expensive compared to other meal delivery services.
- Rapid Weight Loss – 7 Days $259.95
- Rapid Weight Loss – 14 Days $489.95
- Gradual Weight Loss – 7 Days (Be 1000) $344.95
- Maintenance – 5:2 $214.95
The added support, community and meal planning provided by Be Fit Food justifies the cost, making it more similar in pricing to a full weight loss program such as Noom.
Customer reviews of Be Fit Food are mixed. On the one hand, customers commonly enjoy how good the programs are for weight loss and the extra support they receive. On the flip side, some customers report issues with the quality of food, the serving sizes and sometimes bland flavours.
