The best meal delivery service or meal kit for weight loss should offer a calorie-controlled option

The key to weight loss is consuming fewer calories than your body needs. Look for a meal delivery service that conveniently lists calories per serving. To feel full and optimize nutrition, select meals that contain lean protein, vegetables, and healthy fat. A good rule of thumb is to choose complete meals around 600 calories or less per serving.
