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...
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).
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!

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?
Poor Delivery Service - Instructions now followed!
I have numerous problems with the courier as they DO NOT know how to following instructions. I specifically asked the courier company for the goods to be handed to a person with a signature. And what do they do? They leave it unattended. As a result, the items got stolen!
I complained about this to Macros and advised me they will follow this up and provide feedback to the courier company. Guess what! The courier company left the package unattended AGAIN!
Macros did provide a full refund. Then they stopped as the items were consistently getting...

Watch out for the re-order trick
Macro tricks you out of money. This company puts you into a re-order cycle and is not clear and transparent about it. Customer service just says bad luck you should have read the fine print. They are dodgy as far as I am concerned as I am not stupid yet I was in a re-order subscription service without knowing. Rather than tick the box if you want it it's tiny, untick if you don't etc.
Perfect performance meals for any distance runner!
The food was very healthy but most of all super tasty! The meal sizes were perfectly portioned and gave me enough fuel to feel content without over eating which worked out well, particularly when I had macros performance meals for lunch before training or evening competition. I was able to follow a good program because the meals were quick and easy.

Keeping lunch interesting!
My hardest challenge has always been variety when it comes to my meal prep; this would always result in me buying lunches for work. I get bored far too easy eating the same thing every single day. My girlfriend introduced me to Macros, I was sceptical at first, but surprisingly it's solved my dilemma. It's also helped me save some cash, working in Sydney's CBD means lunches aren't always the cheapest.
Though I would suggest an app or sending text messages for reminders, as I had forgotten to choose my meals one week. Lucky their cs team was a...ble to help me change them. Overall the current selection of meals is pretty great and I still haven't tried the whole menu yet! Portion sizes are good too, and it has actually helped me learn some portion control.
Questions & Answers
I haven’t posted the review yet. my friend has requested cancellation weeks ago and today the account got charged again. It had been charged for such a long time and yet we never receive anything frim macros. We just want our card deleted from your system and no more charges occurred. It’s a big mistake joining your company, please make sure delete our credit card number so no more charges in the future
