Efficace is a meal delivery service specifically designed to provide convenience to the hundreds of thousands of Americans put on specific diets to promote health and education, in addition to managing chronic disease, weight loss, digestive disorders, and gastrointestinal diseases. Patients prescribed specific diets will spend countless hours researching, gathering information, and putting together a grocery list of ingredients. Efficace addresses this problem by providing fresh, controlled, already portioned ingredients delivered to their front door. Nationwide, Americans have seen an increase in obesity, chronic disease, cancer, gastrointestinal diseases, and even depression. Studies show this is directly related to diet and what is consumed on a daily basis. An increase in these illnesses has lead researchers to start looking for underlying causes and to come up with preventive actions. Efficace has the potential to collaborate with primary care physicians, health systems, and medical health insurers to offer nutritional meals to their patients to ensure, promote, and incentivize a healthy lifestyle while reducing costs. Efficace offers three specific diet plans: Paleo (gluten free), Ketogenic, and Low FODMAP, including vegetarian options for each specific diet. These meal plans can appeal to anyone who wants to live a healthier lifestyle and eat foods that are good for them and their digestive system.
