Very happy with MACROS
My first meal delivery service was My Muscle Chef. I decided to try Macros after 3 months. I found Macros's meals to be tastier and have high calories, which is what I wanted. Glad I decided to switch.
Loveeeee the fish meals
I must say, after trying some of the chicken and beef meals they were quite mediocre however their fish is amazing! Highly recommend the spanish barramundi. Gyms opening soon cannot wait
Super tasty meals
Just finished my first week and I'm in love with these meals. I love how they use real ingredients and their meals are super tasty. I've bought youfoodz bin the past and find these have much more flavour! Even though I'm working from home atm my workload has quadrupled so haven't had time too cook, now I don't need to worry and I will definitely continue ordering. There have been one or two meals I didn't like but I think it just comes down to personal taste preferences rather than the actual meal itself. I found their chicken dishes to still b...e tender and not dry which is saying something for a pre-packaged meal! I actually love the subscription idea (it's also what made me buy in the first place) as I would always forget to reorder meals with youfoodz and living away from a metro area means that if I missed the cutoff date, I would have to wait another week.
Variety is 100!!!
I have only just recently heard about MACROS and I was hesitant at first because I cook at home anyway but I was super keen to try it anyway! Their meals as everyone has mentioned is so good and their variety is what I love the most because I get bored so easily.
Honestly, I love them but I wish they had some sort of snack...
Brillant for Weight loss so far...
I have only recently joined Macros as they have brought on the weight loss plan which is my main fitness goal. While I do not excercise I try to lose weight with my diet and have found macros currently the best fit so far.
For a meal that you only need 2 minutes for I admit I would not be able to find anything just as good even if I was to cook for myself. Please keep in mind not to over order like I did as the containers are quite big
Good food but ultimately the subscription may kill it for me
Have used Youfoodz, My Muscle Chef, and Macros. While I do rate Youfoodz pretty high purely on flavour, I recently found out I am allergic to dairy and they only have three dairy free options. That plus they tend to add in a lot of preservatives. My Muscle Chef is ok. I got sick of the flavours pretty quick though.
Macros seems healthier than both the others which is a plus - their ingredients list is way shorter and no added preservatives etc. I have enjoyed the meals I’ve had with Macros so far. Would rate the flavour above My Muscle Chef. ...I also rate Macros the best out of the three for macros (protein, carb, fat) for what I need. Macros losses a star purely based on their subscription idea. I hate it. Would much rather order in advance just what I want when I need rather than having to keep track of when to skip or be faced with a bunch of meals I don’t need. The subscription idea also leaves no room to mix and match portion sizes. Some meals I want 300cals and some 500 depending on my day and energy requirements - can’t do that with Macros. One or the other and you’re locked in. I’ll keep trialing for a little while longer, but ultimately, I’m not sure all the plus’s listed above (flavour, macros, ingredients) are going to outweigh the negatives of the subscription.
Not bad but not great either
I tried 16 different meals from Macros.
Overall, the quality was OK - agree with the comments about the greens (broccoli, beans, etc). All the greens had lost their colour. I expected the meals to look more 'fresh'.
Best meals (for me) were the hoki/salmon. Ironically, the worst was the spag bol! (pasta was very soggy, and the sauce had a weird taste).
These are perfect to help you reach your goals, and to continue reaching them! Tastes as good as it looks
Food looks as good as it tastes, if there isn’t enough carbs (which I choose) I will then add it to bulk it up more. These meals have helped me achieve my goals and will continue to!
Best Plant Based Meals In the Game!!
Have tried multiple different meal prep services and these guys hands down smash it out of the park with taste, flavours and portions!! Will definitely be a regular customer and can’t wait to get my next delivery!
Weight Loss lifesaver
Just everything that has been closing I am unable to head to the beach normally and just exercise.
as a result I have been gaining weight, I am a bad cook however despite eating junk/fast food.
Macros new weight loss plan helped satisfy my naughty hungry while still keeping me in shape haha
Sorry but these meals are actually terrible!
After reading all these positively positioned reviews I gave macro a chance (due to being in lockdown and trying to do my bit with social isolation).
I am extremely disappointed to say the very least. The majority of these meals were horrible actually. I felt like I was eating what I imagine prison food to be. Small portions of inexcusably overcooked tasteless slosh. Broccoli in EVERY meal was old and barely green.
Clearly there must be some low standards of expectation out there, but for me who usually eats fresh healthy food, this was inedible & a disappointing experience.
Definitely not worth the price of convienience!
I would recommend Macros for anyone who is thinking about ordering pre-made meals or wants an easier process for watching their daily macros.
My partner and I have been ordering Macros for over 6 months now. The process is easy, they are reliable and because the menu is always changing we never get sick of the meals.
Perfect for everyday people who are in a rush!
I hate to be bias but MACROS is perfect for everyday meals! I'm a person who is always in a rush to get to work and have no time to prepare for lunch. With MACROS, it has provided me the certainty of having a 'ready to go' meal everyday for past couple of months and I couldn't be any happier! Especially with connection to myfitnesspal, it has helped me track how much food I'm consuming. Thank you so much MACROS for providing me meals, especially during these uncertain times.. so I do really appreciate it!
Good for those who work out often
Ever since the Gym was closed I have started to find ways to continue getting my workout proformances and that includes what to eat, No more lining up 9 AM at costco to get bulk supplies to prep!
Perfect for nightshift workers
I currently work night shift and have found it impossible to buy groceries to even prepare food for work considering that the supermarkets are always busy. Thankfully this company is just what I need. The one thing I do not like is that the sauce packets cannot be opened without an scissors or may It is just me because I am afraid of it spilling everywhere. Cabonara chicken dish has been my go to every week :)

Prison food with bad customer service
Was excited about Macros as it seems like a really good concept and the menu looked decent. Didn't have super high expectations about the food.
However the food I got was completely inedible, I legitimately felt so bad about wasting food I heated some up and gave them to the homeless guys at the train station and no joke they didn't want to eat it either. The meat is super overcooked, the rice was undercooked and the flavours are pretty weirdly combined.
I really find it hard to believe the other reviews on here that are positive.
As some of...the other negative reviews have mentioned, they do lock you into a renewal cycle, which renews before your first delivery even arrives. I contacted their customer service to cancel this order, it took them three days to reply at which point they agreed to cancel my order because I didn't want to waste food but refused to give me a refund, I'm stuck with a store credit I'll never use. They say this is because they order the ingredients in advance, but surely that's still a problem if they give me a credit?
No more cooking/supermarkets or prepping
After finding out that it is quite hard to meal prep with all the commotion with supermarkets I looked into many different food delivery services, none of them provide me with the right information except macros.
I train 4 days a week (at home now) and it is very important I am still l getting the right macro nutrtients.
