Hi PHers!

I’m excited to share the launch of PlateJoy Health, an all-digital program that helps you lose weight for the long-term—and even reduce your risk of diseases like Type 2 diabetes.

Lifestyle change has been proven to help people lose weight better than medication (and reduce your risk of developing Type 2 diabetes by nearly 60%). But it’s hard to make those changes alone. PlateJoy Health makes it simple. Here’s how:

We design customized meal plans with recipes that fit your preferences, create shopping lists that reduce your food waste for the week, and offer optional delivery via Instacart in 4,000 locations across the country. You can customize your diet to Ketogenic, Paleo, Vegan, and many more.

We give you exclusive video interviews each week with top experts in nutrition, fitness, and health, including NYTimes best-selling authors, Olympians, and metabolic researchers.

You can track your activity and weight with your Fitbit, Jawbone UP, and wireless scale, syncing them with your account.

You get on-demand virtual health coaching, to help keep you accountable and personalize your plan to your goals.

Would love to answer any questions + thanks for checking it out!

PS - The program is so effective, several insurance providers cover the cost 100% if you’re at risk for Type 2 diabetes. Take the 1 min quiz on the Prevent Diabetes tab to find out - 90% of people who are at risk are unaware. Bonus: if you do qualify, you’ll get a wireless scale and Fitbit for free.

  • Pros: 

    Fresh Ideas, Highly Personalized, Saves Money, Weight Loss Options, Integrated Tech, Responsive & Engaged Employees, Easy to Use

    Cons: 

    Only one suggestion for improvement: Could give suggestions/guidelines in ingredients, cook temp, and times for cooking at high altitude

    I tried other meal/menu/food online tools, they all fell short. I tried menu planning on my own, incorporating new meals I spent hours looking for on Pinterest, and balancing my lack of creativity and skill with our health goals and all the things my husband and I hate to eat. (We're picky). I FAILED miserably and we were constantly over-purchasing ingredients and throwing those same ingredients in the rubbish bin. Then I found PlateJoy! It saves me hours of planning, has taught me new recipes and cooking techniques, took the stress out of building my grocery list, introduced me to new flavor profiles, eliminated most of the food waste in our home, and helped me lose sixteen pounds (so far). We get to try new recipes whenever we want without having to go digging for an idea somewhere and PlateJoy makes certain we're not wasting money on purchasing more ingredients than we will need. We've even been able to balance the fact that my husband is trying to gain weight while I am losing weight. It may sound like a bit of an overstatement, but PlateJoy has become a necessary part of my day ... multiple times a day. It saves time, money, stress, and helps with our health goals. I love it!!!

    Pros: 

    Beautiful app, customizable menus and health preferences, huge variety of delicious recipes

    Cons: 

    Macro count would be a helpful addition

    I lost 25 lbs using this app to help keep me on track with a variety of recipes customized for my carb and calorie goals. It gave me so many options that it finally felt more like a lifestyle change than a “diet” because I didn’t have to eat the same thing everyday.

It sounds cool - doesn't have my insurance, it says, I hope I entered it correctly. Also - all the images are of iPhones. Is this app limited to iOS or do you have an Android version as well? Or a web app?

Excellent write up i must confess, with a lot of details for a Doctor like myself. i am very much happy to have come across such beautiful piece of work as it has widened my view and knowledge on weight loss, and feeding habits too you know. Healthy eating is one of the best things you can do to prevent and control health problems such as heart disease, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, and some types of cancer. It is also good to know your ideal weight, Learn how many calories you need, how much your BMI matters, and more. You can be healthy and happy by eating well and exercising often, even if you aren’t at your 'perfect' weight. And it is also good to know exactly what to eat and what to avoid. hope my contribution helps as well, Thanks. Maher Cody https://buyquaaludesonline.com
