Frequently Asked Questions
When can I expect my order?
Please refer to our Delivery page for detailed information on our ordering schedule. We currently have two dispatch days a week Monday and Thursday.
Are your meals suitable for Gluten-free and Lactose-free diets?
Yes, some of our meals have been customised to remove gluten and/or lactose. If you have a life threatening allergy of any kind, please do not consume our meals.
Do your meals contain any preservatives?
We do not add any preservatives to our meals. All our food is sourced from natural, wholefood preservative-free product. Our food products have a longer “shelf life” due to being individually vacuum packaged. Our sauces are also preservative free.
What is the best way to heat my meals?
Our meals are designed to be heated in the microwave since they already arrive fully cooked. You will notice heating instructions on our meal container regarding how long to heat the food. Remove food form bags on to a suitable plate or slit the plastic bags on the top to release steam during the microwaving process and microwave for about 2 minutes. Keep in mind that some microwaves may require shorter or longer heating time than others. You know your microwave best, so you may want to try out your first meal assuming an average cooking time (a little under 2 minutes) and then adding to that time as you see fit.

Will I lose weight or put on weight with these meals?
As with every healthy eating plan, our meals can be tailored by a professional to help achieve your personal health, fitness and lifestyle goals. Our meals can be used for body specific goals of weight loss and to build lean muscle or just to maintain a current body composition. The most important things to understand for your intended body goals are Calories consumed and Calories expended according to your current body weight / composition status relative to your activity level. If you know your macro nutrient requirements, please review our Nutrition page so you can order meals according to your dietary requirements or goals. If you would like to start using our meals as part of calorie or macro nutrient controlled diet we recommend using a dietician, fitness professional or body coach to get you started.
What if no one is home when the courier arrives?
Fitfood instructs our drivers and couriers to leave orders at the address whether someone is home to receive it or not. When we send the order we will automatically send an email to let you know your order has been shipped and is on its way, please ensure someone can be home to receive your order or leave instructions for our drivers or courier to leave it somewhere safe. Our packaging and ice packs will keep your food cold and safe until it can be refrigerated.
