Shape Lovers' in-house gourmet chefs simplify calorie counting by painstakingly crafting balanced meals delivered to home or workplace doorsteps. They scour gardens and haggle with orchard security guards for the finest, freshest ingredients, tossing them into daily-changing four-course lunches that include an entrée, side dish, soup, and dessert. Nutritionists approve each meal, tallying up nutrition facts and carving out specialized plans for guests with allergies and women who are nursing or pregnant. Each meal is individually packaged for freshness, and Shape Lovers' meals are available for weekly plans and catered events, or can be ordered á la carte.

A separate, padded area gives toddlers and infants a space to navigate tunnels and zoom down slides. In the gourmet, onsite café, parents can enjoy hummus and stuffed mushrooms while their kids dig into platters of bow-tie pasta and mini pizzas with sides of fresh fruit.
