Whether you want to lose a few pounds, have specific needs or dietary restrictions, or simply plan to finally start eating at regular times - here you will find a Warsaw diet catering service tailored to your requirements.

Best diet catering - selection criteria?

.

In selecting the best diet catering in Warsaw, we followed certain criteria:

.
  • Taste and quality of ingredients. User reviews are the best criterion. They will help you choose a tasty diet. Equally important are the ingredients - they should be fresh and provide valuable vitamins and minerals
  • Price. Good diet catering doesn't have to be expensive. Even Warsaw boxed diets can be had for as little as less than £50 per day.
  • Choice of meals. Even the tastiest and healthiest dishes can get boring quickly if there are only a few on offer.
  • Diversity of diets. Not all Warsaw boxed diets offer keto, vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free or low glycaemic index diets, for diabetics (diabetics) or people with Hashimoto's. In the ranking we include takeaway diets that also offer menus for people with certain dietary restrictions.
  • .
  • Calorie. Some people want to purchase diet catering to lose weight. Others are looking for a balanced daily diet, while others are looking for something for athletes - often high in calories. Varied calorie options are just as important as multiple diets.
  • .
  • Mobile app. The comfort of selecting meals and evaluating individual dishes is very important. This is made possible by a mobile app, which, despite appearances, is only offered to us by some catering companies.

Diverse, tasty and seasoned meals - that's what DietBox is all about. Even for more restricted diets (e.g. vege), the meals are not homogeneous and the ingredients remain fresh. Also on the plus side is the way the meals are packaged. It is aesthetically pleasing, making the meals much more enjoyable to eat. What's more, the boxes are well sealed - nothing spills out.

.

Taste

.

The variety of dishes and the taste is very good. The products are fresh and the quantity is satisfactory for most people. 

However, the diets are simple. You will not find elaborate dishes here (which is an advantage for some people).

On the downside, the amount of vegetables - if you are a fan of vegetables, some dishes will disappoint you. 

Diet selection

.

In the Gastro Paczka offer, we can choose among nine diets. Unfortunately, you will not find an option here that allows you to change your meals daily. The available diets are:

  • Classic, 
  • .
  • Pack for two

    Super Menu is a diet catering service whose face is Anna Lewandowska. The name obliges. The Super Menu diet is... super in many ways!

    Taste

    .

    The Super Menu diet is balanced, there is no shortage of fresh, healthy produce and, most importantly, the taste is great. 

    .

    In the catering from Anna Lewandowska we can also expect sugar substitutes such as xylitol or honey. What is more, instead of wheat flour in some diets (e.g. fit), the cooks use only millet, rice, buckwheat or coconut flour.

    This does not mean, however, that this suggestion is reserved for athletes and people who want to lose weight. A balanced diet is the key to a healthy body, and the Super Menu offer also includes 'classic' diet catering.

    Diet catering is also available.

    Body Chief is a diet catering service whose ambassador is Julia Wieniawa. In turn, the taste and quality of the products are supervised by a close-knit team of healthy cuisine enthusiasts. Dietitians and chefs test new solutions every day to provide their customers with tasty and healthy dishes.

    .

    Taste

    .

    The dishes prepared by Body Chief are tasty and balanced. More often than not, however, the flavours will not be distinctive. Customer reviews indicate that the dishes in this diet catering are not robustly seasoned. Therefore, we recommend this boxed diet to people with a delicate palate.

    We note that the variety of dishes in the diet catering from Body Chief is their Achilles' heel. The majority of people who have used the offer have indicated that the dishes are quite homogeneous. However, this is compensated for by the freshness of the produce - vegetables and fruit always taste great.

    Diet selection

    .

    The Body Chief range is very extensive. There are 18 basic diets, two suggestions that allow for daily dietary choices and two juice cleansing diets.

    The diets available at Body Chief are:

    .
    • Low GI Vege,
    • .
    • Economy Box,

    • Office Box Standard,
    • .

    The Menu Choice diet can consist of 3 or 5 meals. It allows you to choose your meals from four diets on a daily basis. This translates into 12 combinations in the case of three meals and twenty when you opt for the richer, five-meal option.

    For people who want to cleanse their body, Body Chief offers juice diets: My Clearing and My Detox. These are prepared from 6 bottles of juice with ingredients such as pineapple, carrots, fennel and even curcuma or chia seeds. The juice diet provides us withand:

    • lots of nutrients,
    • .
    • improve intestinal health,
    • .
    • ease of fruit intake,

    We note that this way of eating can also cause negative effects, such as excess sugar, protein deficiency or feelings of fatigue and hunger.

    Curcumin can also be supplemented. Take a look at this article, prepared in collaboration with a pharmacist, for the best turmeric supplements: Turmeric tablets - which is best? Ranking 2023

    What is diet catering?

    .

    Diet catering is a paid service where you receive pre-packaged meals. The boxed diet is delivered every day (except Sunday) to your door. Most often, diet catering consists of five meals, but you can also choose other options.

    How is diet catering delivered?

    .

    Most catering companies deliver their boxed diets by auto-refrigerators. These make it possible to preserve the freshness of the meals. Each day, a member of staff delivers the diet catering and hands it to us or leaves it at the door (depending on the arrangements). 

    Most often delivery takes place between 2:00 a.m. and 10:00 a.m. Some catering companies allow you to choose an estimated time to receive your diet.

    How much does diet catering cost and is it worth it?

    .

    Many people opt out of diet catering because of the cost. Despite appearances, however, this service is not expensive. The cheapest proposals can be purchased for about 50-60 PLN per day, or 350-420 PLN per week. How does this price compare with other options?

    .
    • Cooking by yourself. The cost of preparing five meals a day for a week is around 200-250 PLN. The specific price depends on the shops chosen, the calories or the dishes. 
    • .
    • Eating out. Eating out in places such as milk bars or canteens is very popular. However, contrary to what you might think, buying five meals out can hit you hard on the wallet. Eating three meals (breakfast, lunch, dinner) already costs around 50 zloty. If you add the other two meals (second breakfast and afternoon snack), which have to be bought in e.g. a bakery or patisserie, the price rises to 65-75 PLN per day, which translates into a weekly cost of 455-525 PLN.
    • .
    • Eating one meal out + preparing the rest of the meals yourself. Dining in a restaurant with average prices is an expense of around 30-35 PLN. Preparing the rest of the meals, on the other hand, will cost us around 20-25 PLN per day. The total cost of eating dinner out in an average restaurant (in terms of price) and cooking the rest of the meals is 350-420 PLN.
    • .

    In short: diet catering is cheaper than eating most meals out and slightly more expensive than cooking all the meals yourself. The cost of most boxed diets is comparable to the cost of eating one, larger meal out per day and preparing the rest of the meals yourself.

    The cost of eating out is comparable to the cost of eating out and preparing the rest of the meals yourself.

    We note that the above calculations are estimates. In order to accurately calculate the cost of each option, it is important to consider the calorie content of the food, the type of food, the shops where you intend to shop, and where you live, among other factors.

    What is the cost of eating out?

    What types of diet catering are there?

    .

    Most diet caterers offer us from several to even a dozen different boxed diets. It is up to each of us to choose the right one for us - best done in collaboration with a nutritionist.

    Types of diet catering

    .
    • Classical. Every catering company has a basic boxed diet on offer. These most often consist of Polish or European dishes. They are designed for people who are not allergic to any ingredients and do not want to lose weight, and all they expect is a balanced and healthy diet.
    • Losing weight. Catering to a lower calorie than basic solutions. As you can guess, we recommend these to people who want to shed weight. We recommend that weight loss diet catering is chosen together with a nutritionist.
    • .
    • Vegan and vegetarian. People who do not eat meat or meat products will also find something for themselves. Some catering companies also offer, for example, a vegetarian diet with fish.
    • For athletes. Physically active people need a proper diet and a solid calorie count. Catering companies keep them in mind and provide numerous suggestions. Ideally, this catering should be chosen with a specialist.
    • .
    • Gluten-free and lactose-free. People who are gluten or lactose intolerant may find it difficult to prepare meals themselves. A boxed diet may prove to be a convenient, and just as importantly, healthy solution.

    Most catering companies also offer other boxed diets to their clients, such as the low glycaemic index or keto diets.

    How to choose the right type of diet catering?

    .

    The type of diet catering should be tailored to our lifestyle and expectations. Ideally, you should contact a dietitian before buying a boxed diet. This will ensure that you choose diet catering that is both tasty, healthy and beneficial for you.

    If you do not have the opportunity to contact a specialist, use a calorie calculator. It's a tool that allows you to choose the right calories based on factors such as age, weight or expectations. 

    Is it worth buying diet catering - advantages and disadvantages

    .

    Diet catering has both its supporters and opponents. The following advantages and disadvantages of this solution will help you choose which side of the barricade you stand on.

    Benefits of diet catering

    .
    • Saving time.
    • Convenience.
    • .
    • Possibility to follow a balanced and healthy diet.
    • Feature of the diet.
    • Free choice of calories appropriate to our lifestyle.
    • Free choice of calories appropriate to our lifestyle.
    • Variety of dishes, also from other, foreign and distant cuisines.
    • Possibility to lose weight relatively easily.
    • .
    • Facilitating regular meals.
    • .
    • Possibility to adapt the diet to our expectations - keto diet, for athletes, for people intolerant to gluten or lactose, and many others.
    • Contact with a dietician - some catering companies allow free contact with a dietician during the boxed diet.
    • Easier to control your eating style - if you know your boxed diet meals last you the whole day, it's simpler to limit snacking.

    Disadvantages of diet catering

    .
    • Price - compared to preparing your own meals, diet catering is more expensive.
    • Price is more expensive.
    • No influence on the quality of the products used in the preparation of the meals.
    • No influence on the quality of the products used in the preparation of the meals.
    • Delivery always takes place in the morning.
    • .
    • Plastic boxes - have little to do with caring for nature.
    • Plastic boxes - have little to do with caring for nature.
    • Yoyo effect - reverting to old eating habits after catering can result in weight gain.

    Who is diet catering for?

    .

    Diet catering is for everyone. It is a very good way to stick to a balanced and healthy diet while saving time. The most important thing is to choose the right type of boxed diet. The names and descriptions of the different caterers indicate who should use them.

    But ideally, you should work together with a dietitian to choose the right diet catering.

    Diet catering - dietitian's opinion

    .

    Diet catering is steadily gaining in popularity, and opinions on it are divided. That's why I decided to ask Julia Skrajda, a clinical dietitian, a few questions to find out what professionals think about this solution.

    Will diet catering allow us to eat healthily?

    .

    Julia Skrajda: Diet catering is not a way to improve eating habits. By using such a solution, we are not taking an active part in taking care of them. That is why I recommend a box diet as a nutritional support. 

    .

    It is worth using diet catering during 'peak hours', i.e. at times when we are busy. On the other hand, at weekends, or other days off, I recommend letting go of the boxed diet and preparing a simple but balanced and healthy meal yourself. 

    The diet catering service is a great option.

    Who in particular would you recommend diet catering to?

    .

    The boxed diet is a great solution for athletes. The increased demand for calories and nutrients makes it difficult to maintain a proper diet. Things become even more challenging when workouts take up most of the day.

    Another group for whom diet catering may be a good option are senior citizens. Seniors who are unable to prepare their own meals due to their physical condition can take advantage of this option and take care of themselves.

    Diet catering is a good option for seniors.

    Can a boxed diet solve our health problems?

    .

    No. Using catering with the intention of reducing weight or treating indigestion, intestinal problems, allergies or other health ailments will not work. 

    A boxed diet will never be a substitute for seeing a nutritionist, getting to know the root of our problem, and educating ourselves to deal with it. I can compare diet catering to dietary supplements, which support us but never cure us.

    Diet catering can be compared to dietary supplements, which support us but never cure us.

    FAQ

    .
    . Will diet catering help me lose weight?.

    Diet catering can help you lose weight if you choose the calorie content of your meals appropriately. Remember to adjust it according to your goal and your current weight and calorie requirements. Also take into account if you are snacking between purchased meals, thereby increasing your calorie count. It's worth choosing a boxed diet after consulting a nutritionist. A healthy diet can help us lose up to 2-3 kg in a month.

    . Is it worth betting on diet catering if I have type II diabetes or Hashimoto's?.

    Yes, both type II diabetes and Hashimoto's require us to have a proper diet. People with diabetes should take special care to take in healthy carbohydrates, as well as fibre-rich foods, among other things. Hashimoto's patients on the other hand, should pay attention to ingredients such as iron, selenium, iodine and vitamin D.

    . What if diet catering isn't enough for me and I'm overeating?.

    If, despite eating 4-5 full meals a day from diet catering, you feel hungry and are overeating, most likely your package is too low in calories. If you are using a boxed diet to lose weight, consider choosing a higher calorie option. This will slow down your progress, but you may find it easier to follow the diet. Reduced calorie diets typically result in a greater sense of hunger, so it's best to check with a dietitian to choose the right option based on your actual goals and calorie requirements.

    . How much does a boxed diet cost in Warsaw?.

    The prices of boxed diets vary depending on the company, as well as the type and calorie content of the catering chosen. The cheapest proposals can be purchased for as little as 40 PLN per day. On the other hand, the most expensive ones may cost as much as PLN 100-140 per day.

    .

    Most often a standard boxed diet consisting of five meals of 1700-2000 kcal costs about 55-75 PLN.

    .
    . How long does it take to lose 10 kg of weight?.

    By losing weight in a healthy way, you can lose around 2-3 kg per month. So, to lose 10 kg, you should follow a diet for 3-5 months. Keep in mind that 'fast' weight loss can be detrimental to your health, psychologically difficult, and can also backfire with the so-called yo-yo effect, i.e. a return to your old weight after the diet has ended.

    . How to make a boxed diet yourself .

    Preparing a box diet at home is very simple - just cook your meals one day (for example, on a Sunday) for the next few days. You then need to reheat your meals. The standard box diet consists of five meals (breakfast, second breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner). However, this quantity can be freely modified according to your preferences.

    .

    On the internet, you can find a lot of inspiration for preparing a variety of tasty and healthy dishes with ease.

    .
    . What times do you receive boxed diets?.

    Each company that delivers boxed diets does so at different times. Most diet caterers deliver from 2am to 10am. Some companies also deliver their diet the day before in the evening. Sometimes (depending on the catering chosen) it is possible to choose an estimated delivery time.
