About

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.

This app has literally saved my boyfriend and I so much time and money. We sit down for 15 mins a week to make a new menu, grocery shop (>70% in the produce section) for 45 mins (the bill is usually around $100, but varies from $80-130 depending on the 'extra' stuff we get), then have a whole weeks worth of meals planned out! It's made our lives so much easier and I love that I can lower my portion sizes to match my weight loss goals

Pros:

Able to specifically personalize & has a huge variety of meals, calorie settings

Cons:

No macro preferences, doesn't automatically substitute items (just seems to exclude the recipes)

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:

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 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.

Pros:

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

Cons:

Macro count would be a helpful addition

I have been using PlateJoy for about a month or so and love the many recipes PlateJoy has to offer. Every recipe that I've tried has been easy to fix, very tasty recipes and has a very wide range of healthy options, geared toward your goals.

tons of recipes. easy step by cooking guide, easy to use

Cons:

none.

My wife and I use this with our teenage son Olympic track road cyclist. We make most of our meals with the program adapted to Paleo low carb and add in pasta, potatoes, rice for our Cyclist son. Saves a lot of food waste, time, discussion, hassle, and has great recipes. Highly recommend for busy people who need less decisions in their day.

Pros:

Easy to use, eliminates food waste, very customizable

Cons:

Cannot put in own recipes at this time

I love platejoy! It makes it so easy to plan ahead our weekly menu and I'm loving what we eat.

Pros:

Delicious recipe, choice of multiple type of menu, easy to devide between people having different caloric needs

Cons:

Swapping ingredients not so easy if you are strict on counting your calories

I love the variety this gives as well as the confidence in home-cooking using simple ingredients to create really tasty meals. So much customization is available that I can meet the needs of our whole household with one app.

Pros:

Easy recipes, highly customizable

Cons:

none

I love PlateJoy - have been using it for about 8 months now. I hate grocery shopping, but this app makes it so easy... and I basically never have to make the same recipe twice (unless I want to).

Pros:

Personalized meal plans and automatically generated grocery lists.

Cons:

I can't think of any.

I only grocery shop once a week now and I have an easy to follow list created by Plate Joy. My family eats healthy and the recipes are delicious. I have been so happy with Plate Joy.

Pros:

The menu you create is customize-able, there are a variety of delicious recipes, it has positively changed the way I cook for my family.

Cons:

Sometimes the measurements are wonky

I love PlateJoy. It’s flexible but organzed meal planning, recipes and a complete shopping list that knows what I have in my pantry and fridge, Already. It shows me meals that fit my nutrition and weight loss goals, lets me pick what sounds good, optimizes iit for what I need to use up. the list can be sent to Instcart when I’m too busy to go to the store. One trip to the store for the week, and I have my meals ready in 30 minutes or less each evening. I chose the “make leftovers for lunches“ option since I work st home. No more trips out to get junky food! The money saved by wasting less can go into the best gourmet ingredients.

Pros:

Healthy, super customizable, reduces food waste, keeps me eating right, weight loss, delicious recipes!

Cons:

A little more cleaning up when I cook from scratch - but so worth it!
