Needs more green vegetables
These are filling meals, and the level of variety is ok. Vegetables included tend to be starchy, a warning that they are definitely low on green vegetables. I supplement mine with fresh green vegetables which makes them feel cleaner.
Convenient- yes but that’s about it
Quality Was lacking for me, some meals are great, but I wasn’t feeling it. Also found a thick hair throughout one meal, and one came not vacuumed . They are convenient but not at all worth the money in my personal opinion. I won’t be ordering again.
Convenient, quick and handy, but let down by freshness and portion size!
The meals are convenient and tasty with easy delivery arrangements. However I find the portion size lacking and find them more useful as a lunch time filler than a main meal
The presentation is lacking compared to the description advertised and I feel these are just mass produced ready meals in a factory.
I have compared these meals with others and I personally prefer GMD due to their freshness, overall size and presentation.
Great for weight loss/management but PLEASE change the container
The recipes are tasty and satisfying and make daily eating much easier to manage. Great cost per meal especially if you buy in bulk. However the container has been changed recently and food/sauce all gets stuck in the ribbing which drives my partner and I insane!!
I have received two orders from My Muscle Chef so far and am still undecided. My first order contained a meal without a use by date printed on the packaging. Customer support kindly offered me a discount off my next order for the inconvenience. My second order was missing all of the protein bites/keto bars I ordered - a total of five items. Again, customer support offered me a discount off my next order to make up for this.
I received an email from MYMC after my first order stating I would be receiving a free protein bite with my next order, w...hich I did not get. Another email (and posts on MYMC's social media) stated I would receive a free can of BOSS coffee with my next order ("all orders arriving between Sunday 20th June and Wednesday 30th June" - my delivery was 23rd June), which was also not received. Overall I am satisfied with the meals; they are fresh and tasty. I will keep my subscription for now and hope that the issues aren't an ongoing occurrence.
Good but could improve
I like these meals however I feel there are not enough nutrient rich vegetables (broccoli or sweet potatoes/pumpkin) in the servings (they use white potatoes to bulk it up)
I would love more variety and also more keto friendly options!
Overall, their service is fantastic and delivery times have been spot on!
Meals are good, and well prepared. As for allergies I've contacted them twice as they need to better label Sulphites. Food with red wine doesn't show that sulphites are present when they are, which is dangerous for those with allergies. That's my only pitfall.
Vegan range improving!
I used to get meals from MMC back when the seitan was the only proper high protein vegan option, and I stopped after several weeks because it got boring having one high protein option. The range is so much better now but the protein content could still be better.
Expiry date too short
The food is great - healthy and tasty, but minimum order is $90. The meals reach expiry date before you can use them. Meals need a longer expiry date. I’ve ordered twice and have thrown 3 meals out by time I get to eat them
Average and not that healthy
These meals aren't bad, but they're not great either. I can only seem to eat 5 of these meals without them all starting to taste similar, and I start to wonder how healthy they are, but that's the same for any meal delivery service. They’re all very sweet compared to something like Macros, which makes me wonder what they're using to sweeten them and why. I have s suspicion these aren't that great for you. The moral of the story, stop being lazy and cook your own, healthy bulk meals. You'll save a tonne of money, feel better about yourself, they'll taste better, you'll be building a great skill and your discipline.
Overall good, some issues
My Muscle Chef overall is a good product. Meals are generally good quality and filling, but some are a bit hit and miss. Many of the chicken based products can be very dry, and at times the sauces are a bit stingy. When bulk ordering, many of the mesls come with one week shelf life, which isn’t great when others come with 2. I’ve done two large orders, both times some of the packaging was damaged, which also isn’t ideal when reheating.
I do like the fact you can select meals based on macros and other goals, and website is easy to use.
Convenient and mostly tasty
The food overall is very good. But the vegetables in all meals are way under cooked they all are hard and crunchy.
Some of meals are lacking in meat but only a few of them.
customer service terrible. Food excellent. Volume of Plastic and cardboard waste a concern.
Be ready for lengthy waits and an inability to truly discuss any issues you have as you will get scripted answers with no room for further discussion. The food is of excellent quality and very tasty. The option of ketogenic meals is good if not limited in choice and should have more fat than protein but good none the less. There is a large amount of waste between a new cardboard box with seperate insulation each order and each meals plastic container contributes to your carbon footprint.
The food doesn’t always fill you up and Orders are always missing an item. You then need to query you order to get a refund. Doesn’t seem to be much of a saving compared to purchasing meals from a servo.
Wasn't for me
I am on a fitness journey and tried a few meals for when I'm running late at work and on the go. My issue is that the meals are too saucy, however in terms of portion control they're exactly what you're looking for and the nutrition on them is decent. The overly saucy situation with a lot of packaged health meals is a real issue but even though it's not for me it might be suitable for many others. THe customer service and range is great so don't let that deter you.
Questions & Answers
I cannot find on the packaging if the chicken is free range or organic. If not then I won’t feel comfortable buying it or is it not stated as you don’t?

MMC dinner at lunch
MMC dinners or family cooked at night

Was 100 kgs
Now a steady 85kgs
