Will not be ordering again
I was so excited for my order to arrive but was disappointed from the very first meal I tried.
I ordered ten and couldnt finish a single one with some going straight to the bin. All meals that contained meat were so tough I couldnt even chew them.
I love my macro meals
These are the best tasting and freshest meals I have had from a meal company.
The macro break down is great also with a nice high protein content. Highly rate these meals.
Love, love, love!
I love Macros meals, this is my first week but I've used other meal prep companies and this is my fav! I love the veggies and the sauces! Despite the negative reviews on here, the subscription terms are made quite clear when signing up!
Loving the meals so far
First week trying Macros and so far I can say all is good. Really enjoying the meals, love that I can scan them into MFP. Steak reheated, is not fresh off the bbq steak but is still pretty good just a hit chewy. Really looking forward to trying more and think the meals will really help with my goals (weight loss).

Disappointing food quality and service
Firstly the quality of the steaks is very poor, the meat turned out to be hard as rubber.
Secondly. You will be charged weekly or fortnight without consent. Even your email address does not exist, and I cannot cancel the subscription by myself.
Not checking customer details, especially the email address. did the customer provide real email address or the customer missed some words and email is incorrect, which creates a situation that customers cannot log in to the dashboard cancel the subscription, change foods, etc or more vulnerable situations.
Finally, poor customer support service, they don't care about customer feedback and satisfaction.

Would not recommend to anyone
From the very beginning my experience with macros has been incredibly disappointing. I had noted when ordering that (as the delivery day for my area was a Friday) I was working on so needed the meals to be delivered later in the day and/or packed with enough ice to last until I got home. On the morning of my delivery I awoke to a text message saying my delivery was going to be arriving between 9 and 11am. it ended up arriving at 9:30am. Not will to waste $200 worth of meals and having no response to my messages to the company trying to confirm ...they had at the very least packed it with enough ice to last I had to arrange my mother in law to drive all the way to my house and put the meals in the fridge for me. I'm thankful i did because with only two icebricks on a relatively warm day the meals would not have lasted until I got home and would have spoiled. I still haven't received a response to my message to macros. This alone turned me off the company and already had me considering cancelling my subscription. the only thing that could save them now was the meals. I shouldn't have gotten my hopes up despite the wonderful pictures displayed the meals were nothing like what was pictured the meat was tasteless or had fatty, grossly and unapetising cuts of meat. Some dishes were fine, but I definitely wouldn't say good or tasty but most were not. On average the $3 frozen meals from Woolworths is better that these meals. Have unsubscribed and
Meals were average, to say the least.
My biggest complaint is that it does not state clearly that you will be charged weekly without consent. You subscribe and have to cancel the subscription to avoid getting charged. That means you can try the meals once like all other companies. Then when you try to use your credit you're going round and round in circles...subscribe again now unsubscribe hopefully your not charged, meals are then not delivered and you're waiting 2 weeks for meals. Waste of time if you ask me, who orders and gets delivered meals 10 days later...especially for ordinary food.
It has been a nightmare to organise some meals for my credit.
Beats the supermarket
Not that crazy about Tofu, but these guys made it edible. Pretty much anything with chicken is a winner wit me when it comes to MACROS, pretty damn juicy and it’s definitely beats buying a whole chicken at the supermarket.
Tasty and Filling
I received my first delivery today and was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food. Servings were filling and tasty, the veggies were fresh, and the chicken was not dry. The chimichurri chicken was our favourite meal.
Tasty and lots of options
So happy about the new vegan range! As a pescatarian I really enjoy the Macros seafood dishes for dinner but there wasn’t that much variety for me, I usually like having a more veggie packed lunch so this is perfect for me! Will be upgrading my subscription to include lunches as well now!
I have almost finished my first week of meals from Macros.
Some meals were quite disappointing (ie not enough sauce, bland looking food or missing ingredients compared to what they promote in their photos) which I left feedback on through the website. I had to ditch half of one meal because I couldn't eat it, plus the vegies were not the same as in the meal that was shown on the website (I have attached a photo of an actual meal I received vs what I see on the website. The one I received is definitely less colourful and appetizing!)
I'll give it another 2 weeks but if I don't see an improvement I'll have to find another company.
Not overcooked and I actually even like to eat the salmon cold. Love the sweet potato mash that comes with it too, feels really hearty! I am finding it really helpful because I struggle with portion sizes. I find some of the dishes nice and satisfying.
Macros shows compassion after all... (Don't expect compassion for financial circumstances.... you won't get it)
I have since received an email from Macros providing a full refund due to poor customer service, which I have gratefully accepted. I hope to actually eat their food one day very soon.
I lost my job about 16 hours after placing my first order, with the delivery date 12 days away.
I immediately asked to cancel my first order on compassionate grounds but was refused:
"Unfortunately we are unable to process refunds for late cancellations as we place orders for the necessary ingredients and begin the production cycle shortly after the cutoff ti...
Ripper Lunch-time Meal
Ate a Performance meal (Chicken Broccoli Bowl w/ Miso, Edamame & Brown Rice) for lunch at work. It took two and a half minutes to heat up, but our microwave is only 600W, I assume the meal's recommendation for 2 minutes is based on 900W.
Usually I find re-warmed chicken to be dry and stringy. To my surprise, the chicken was still moist & the brown rice wasn't undercooked! I have to admit that the portion size feels small (I write this 15 minutes afterwards and I'm still peckish), but the meal was absolutely delicious considering.
Having tried quite a few other competitors, Macros is fairly good with their meal proportions and taste. In comparison to ChefGood, they are much more reasonable priced than ChefGood which makes it more affordable to order weekly from them. Although I find that ChefGood has more variety in their meals and is consistently changing meal options every week - they have pastas, wraps, curries etc.. it be good to see more variety every week from Macros which would help enjoy the meals more and look forward to them.
High quality Ingredients
I have been with other meal brands before trying Macros. It was introduced by my partner and ever since then I never look back. The salmon was cooked perfectly compared to other brands. You can taste the juicy flavour of Salmon without compromising the texture when you heat it in the microwave, same with the steak meals.
