How’s the food?
It's high quality and tastes great! Recipes are created by classically trained chefs and the food is freshly prepared. All the meals are come fully-prepared so there is no prep - simply heat and eat.
Is it organic?
We take great pride in sourcing our products with integrity from farmers we trust and providing a product that contains only real foods that you will recognize. We use organic ingredients as much as possible and all meals are gluten-free without artificial ingredients.
Is all of the food gluten-free?
Yes! Our entire facility is gluten-free.
Do the meats contain hormones or antibiotics?
No! Our animal proteins are grass-fed meat, free-range poultry, and sustainable fish – all antibiotic and hormone-free. The compassionate treatment and welfare of animals is very important to us so we partner with suppliers who are equally committed to ensuring farm animals have a humane life.
Do you use processed foods or artificial ingredients?
No! We never use processed or artificial ingredients, and everything is non-GMO.
Where can I find nutritional information about my meals?
Nutritional information and ingredients are included with each meal. Macronutrients vary depending upon your ingredient preferences, but all meals are well-portioned with ranges of 250 – 700 calories depending on the meal. We use ingredients that are nutrient-dense and fiber-rich, nourishing your body and helping you feel fuller, longer.
Are the Mediterranean meals also Low FODMAP?
No, they are not. Though all of our meals are gluten-free, the Mediterranean meals do contain FODMAPs. If you have IBS, SIBO, or IBD please select from our Low FODMAP plans.
How do I heat the meals up?
Each meal comes with directions for microwaves as well as conventional ovens or stove tops.
1. Leave clear film intact and place in microwave.
2. Heat for 1-2 minutes* if thawed, 3-5 minutes* if frozen. While cooking, clear film will form a 'dome' over the meal. *Microwave times may vary.
3. Peel back or cut clear film from tray and enjoy!
For best results, allow seafood meals to thaw in refrigerator overnight before heating.
Conventional Oven: Transfer meal to oven-safe dish. Heat at 350 degrees until desired temperature.
Stove Top: Transfer meal to pot. Heat to desired temperature.
Pro tip: We “eat with our eyes” so we highly recommend transferring your entrée to a plate before enjoying it. Take your time, relax, breathe and enjoy!
What meal plans are available?
We offer two subscription meal plans to help you take control and maintain control over your IBS symptoms.
OPTION 1: Low-FODMAP MEALS: If you simply want convenient, great-tasting Low-FODMAP meals delivered weekly to your door. All our meals are Low-FODMAP, so they will be safe to eat no matter which FODMAP’s trigger your symptoms.
OPTION 2: Low-FODMAP PROGRAM: The Low-FODMAP Program is recommended by providers if you are currently struggling with IBS and want control over your symptoms. The Program is based on Monash University’s research, which indicates 3 out of 4 people will feel better after completing a Low-FODMAP protocol. By incorporating IBS trained dietitians and chef-prepared Low-FODMAP meals we make compliance simple and increase the likelihood of achieving these results. The Program generally takes 8 weeks and consists of the following phases:
Elimination: For 2-3 weeks you will swap High-FODMAP foods for low-FODMAP alternatives.
Approximately 75% of patients feel better by the end of this phase. Our home-delivered meals are all Low-FODMAP
which makes compliance simple, healthy, and tasty!
Reintroduction: During the next 6 weeks you will systematically re-introduce High-FODMAP foods
under the guidance of a dietitian. This will help you learn the specific foods and categories of foods which
trigger your symptoms.
Personalization: Going through reintroduction allows you to liberalize your diet and enjoy many
more foods than maintaining a strict Low-FODMAP diet.
How much does it cost?
Our freshly prepared, Low-FODMAP meals cost an average of $7.90 for breakfast and $11.75 for entrée. Coaching and educational materials are also provided to facilitate ongoing control of your IBS after the program.
Our freshly prepared Mediterranean meals range from $11.75 to $12.50 depending on the plan you select.
Many of our patients find it’s a small increase to their budget when considering meals at home, money spent eating
out, and out-of-pocket costs for medications. Sales tax may be included depending on your state. You can view our plans and pricing by clicking here
How long is my commitment?
All plans are weekly subscriptions with no long-term commitments. We’re confident you’ll improve how you feel and love the meals, but if you’d like to change your selections, skip a week or cancel you can do so by logging in to your account or calling us toll free at 888-7MODIFY (888-766-3439).
Order changes and skip requests must be placed by Sunday, 11:59pm ET to be applied to the upcoming week’s delivery. Requests made after that deadline will be applied to the following week’s delivery. Our meals are prepared fresh, not frozen so the notification period gives us time to adjust inventory and prepare the correct number of meals.
Why are dietitian consultations offered?
Data shows that working with a trained dietitian improves the likelihood of success. We are an outcomes-based company and believe this support is critical to helping you gain control over your health. If you are already working with a dietitian or were referred to us by your dietitian, there is no need to sign up for our dietitian consultations. We offer this as a service for those patients not already connected to a dietitian.
Will my HSA apply and do you take insurance?
Your HSA may apply toward the cost of the dietitian consult but not the meals. We do not accept insurance for the dietitian consultations. Regarding the meals, insurance won’t pay for food that could be used for general consumption, so it’s not a reimbursable program. Accounting for in-home meals and the cost of eating out, the average American spends $125 on food per week. This figure does not include the additional expense of supplements and medications patients often incur in an attempt to manage their IBS. Many of our patients have found it to be a small increase to their budget when considering meals at home, money spent eating out, and out-of-pocket costs for medications.
Do you deliver to my area?
Yes! We deliver nationwide, anywhere in the Continental U.S. (No P.O. boxes please)
What days do you deliver?
Meals are scheduled to arrive on Fridays via major carriers such as UPS or FedEx. A tracking number will be provided by email ahead of time.
How much does shipping cost?
Shipping is ALWAYS FREE!
Does someone need to be present to receive the delivery?
No. If you aren’t home at the time of delivery, the package will be left on your doorstep. If you have special instructions for UPS or FedEx to access your delivery address, be sure to note them in the ‘special instructions’ box on the order page.

delivery, stored in the refrigerator. You can extend the shelf life 6-8 weeks by storing them in the freezer.

What is a “FODMAP?”
FODMAPs (short for Fermentable, Oligosaccharides, Disaccharides,
Monosaccharides And Polyols) are a collection of short-chain carbohydrates (sugars) found in many
foods and food additives that can be hard for some people to digest. If they aren’t digested properly in the gut,
they can trigger symptoms in people with IBS. Most patients aren’t sensitive to all categories of FODMAPs so it’s
important to identify your specific FODMAP trigger foods.
What is a “FODMAP Program?”
In order to identify your FODMAP trigger foods, providers recommend a Low-FODMAP
Program. The program begins with a 2-week period of FODMAP elimination which, in most cases, will quickly provide
IBS symptom relief. The program then transitions to a 6-week reintroduction phase where you systematically introduce
high-FODMAP foods, under the guidance of dietitian, so you can identify your specific trigger foods.
Are your meals Monash University Low FODMAP Certified?
Yes, we’re proud to be the first and only nationwide meal delivery service to have received the Monash University Low FODMAP Certification. This certification gives patients, dietitians, and other healthcare providers assurance that our meals meet the guidelines to help make the FODMAP journey simple and effective.
Will all patients experience significant improvement?
Data suggests up to 75% of IBS patients will experience significant relief by
adopting a low-FODMAP program. If you do not have meaningful results after the 2-week elimination phase, your
dietitian may recommend that you discontinue the program and revisit with your provider. If there is no improvement,
simply discontinue your subscription.
How do I learn more about Low-FODMAP?
My provider recommended ModifyHealth. Why?
The ModifyHealth Programs recommended by your healthcare provider includes low FODMAP or Mediterranean meals and expert dietitians to guide you through these systematic dietary protocols. By the end of the program, you will know how food plays a role in your wellbeing and have a plan for ongoing control of your symptoms.
