Tracy Anderson’s high-energy, calorie-torching march towards world domination continues. She’s following up her fitness/beauty multiplex with another new endeavor: a meal delivery service.

The Food Program by Tracy Anderson (which launched in L.A. in April but will go national on June 1) was developed by the celebrity trainer to complement her intense workout method, loved by Gwyneth Paltrow and Kim Kardashian.

In fact, Anderson tells PEOPLE, Paltrow (herself a cookbook author) was “instrumental in helping create the program,” and loves the plan’s salmon with yogurt-mint dressing. But there’s a key difference between their approaches to food: “She’s in the kitchen to make things taste insanely amazing and I’m in the kitchen getting weight off of people.”

And she has a celeb fan who appreciates her approach: Jennifer Lopez. “She’s been on it now for about two weeks, and she loves it, she keeps ordering it,” Anderson says. “She’s not somebody who usually diets at all … [but] she needs the convenience. I’m so happy that somebody like that loves it because she has access to whatever food she wants.”

The plan isn’t cheap — it starts at $54.95 per day for a 14-day supply — but it is healthy, and Anderson promises results. “People are definitely going to lose weight,” she says. “They can lose stubborn weight on this and they can lose hundreds of pounds on this as well.”

And one more promise from her: “All the desserts are delicious!”

Is the food sprinkled with diamonds? Why the sh^t does it cost $1000 for two weeks?
This woman used to be better. Better looking, I mean. All these women are going OTT with their workouts, turning into G.I.Joes and Action Men.
I’m happy the skinny phase seems to be wearing off a bit on celebs, but you don’t need to look like you can tackle Dolph Lundgren to be considered fit.

For that much money, I could hire a private chef….Hmm, I think I’ll just do the duck tape diet : )

You probably get Lap Band and have more to eat for that price.

Paltrow is a business partner with Anderson, so of course she’s all for the food. She makes money off of it too.

Wow, $1,000 for two weeks worth of food for one person is highway robbery. The average person makes about $3,800 a month so they would have to commit more than a third of their income to this food. The only people who could afford this are the celebrities that are endorsing it.

MSNBC should be ashamed; this is an advertisement mascarading as an article. Also, over 50$ per day is simply not affordable for most Americans, and to even imply that it is is insulting. Finally, it doesn’t take a genius or a nutritionist to figure out that eating below 1000 calories a day is dangerous and unhealthy.

Her workout program is bizarre and the food plan is no better than a starvation diet. Just diet and exercise sensibly. She and Ms. Paltrow are just padding their already substantial income. They are so out of touch with the real world it is ridiculous.

Whoever writes this column does not know the basic People Magazine audience. Most are working women, many with families who want to eat healthy meals, many times on a budget. Who in their right mind would advocate this for the readers. This type of product belongs in Town and Country or Vogue where it might be something the rich and already thin would want since it is mostly a trendy and overly expensive way to appeal to a small segment of th population.

It is possible to eat healthy on less that $54 a day, so this is just ridiculous.

Laura vanhoosier on

People magazine continues to show it is out of touch with its readers. Agree with other comments — ad disguised as an article (advertorial).

Silly magazine …. 99.99999% of your readers could never be a part of this meal plan no matter how much they would like to.
