Many people have turned to the ketogenic diet1 to pursue their health and wellness goals. But sticking to the low-carb, high-fat restrictions of the keto diet can be challenging, especially when life is as busy as it is. Sure, meal prepping can be a game changer, but you can make only so many keto recipes before your menu options start repeating themselves. And are you sure you’re even hitting your macronutrient goals?

Meal delivery services take the struggle and the guesswork out of the keto diet. And because we’ve always got your back, in addition to consulting with registered dietician Perry Nix, our team of certified nutrition coaches, certified personal trainers, and other experts put 10 of the best keto meal delivery services to the test, and wow, do we have some notes for you. Let’s check them out.

  • Five menu plans, including calorie-controlled and keto
  • Can mix and match from different menu plans for more variety
  • New menus drop weekly
  • Can order up to 18 meals per week

Pros & Cons

  • Not restricted to one specific diet plan
  • Meals arrive fresh and ready to heat
  • Offers options for different dietary preferences
  • Can cancel or skip a delivery anytime

Cons

  • No options for customization
  • No personalized plans for weight loss

Bottom Line

Factor75 is a heat-and-eat delivery service that works well for those on specialized diets. Boxes are delivered weekly, and you can mix and match from different menu plans to maximize your menu variety.

We put some of the best keto meal delivery services to the test, and in our opinion, Factor 75 came out on top. Factor takes the stress out of healthy living by providing already-prepared meals right to your doorstep. And the best part? The meals are always fresh, never frozen!

Factor Meals Chicken Alfredo With Broccoli

Factor offers six plan sizes with 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, or 18 meals delivered to you each week at $10.99-$13.49 per serving. The meal options change weekly (score!) and can satisfy a variety of dietary needs and taste preferences. Factor offers low-calorie, vegetarian, vegan, and keto meals, among others.

Factor 75 keto-friendly meals contain at least 60% of their calories from fat, approximately 20% from protein, and 10% or less from carbohydrates. And Factor understands that nutrition needs, especially when trying to reach ketosis, can vary significantly between individuals, so they’ve made their nutrition information easily accessible. Simply click on the meals you’re interested in, and review their ingredients and nutrition content.

Each meal is designed to feed one adult, but our very own Amanda Capritto, CPT, CES, CNC, CF-L1, says they’re enough to feed a very hungry athlete:

“This is the only meal service I tried that had ample portions! These meals can fill up a triathlete in the middle of a tough training block, so they can fill up just about anyone. Some of these are quite high in calories for one meal (750-800), just something to be cognizant of depending on your goals.”

Factor offers keto-friendly meals like Chorizo Chili, Baja Salmon, Parmesan Garlic Chicken Wings, and keto add-ons like shakes, breakfasts, desserts, and sides. And this dietitian’s favorite part? Factor offers a free 20-minute consultation with a registered dietitian. Plus, you can skip a delivery or cancel your subscription anytime without ever interacting with a human—a major win for us introverts!

Factor Meals Blueberry Pancakes Plated

One potential drawback, Perry Nix, RD, points out: “Factor isn’t the best option for families considering you can only buy single-serve meals. The cost of buying several for an entire family would add up quickly.”

Best Keto Meal Delivery Service for Weight Loss: Diet-to-Go

Good for: Those who want to reach ketosis in pursuit of weight loss goals

Best for Weight Loss

Diet-To-Go

GGR Score: 4.1 starstarstarstarstar

Product Highlights

  • Meal delivery service with 5 diet plans
  • Ready to heat chef-prepared meals
  • Mediterranean diet and low-carb options
  • Choose up to 21 meals per week
  • Customized meal plans available
  • New meals every 5 weeks

Pros & Cons

Pros

  • Appeals to a variety of diets
  • Meals are ready to eat in 3 minutes
  • Can order all 21 meals for the week
  • Meal plans are curated for you, but you have the option to customize it

Cons

  • Very limited customization
  • Doesn’t offer any organic options
  • Calories are very low on the standard plan

Bottom Line

Diet-To-Go accommodates a number of dietary preferences and restrictions, but the menu doesn’t have as much variety as some of the other programs. These are heat-and-eat meals, so they’re ready to eat in three minutes.

Diet-to-Go is a meal delivery service that focuses on making healthy eating accessible and affordable, helping customers maintain a healthy weight. Customers can choose between diabetes-friendly, Mediterranean, vegetarian, and keto meal plans. Diet-to-Go provides chef-prepared, portion-controlled meals, and their Keto-Carb30 plan is no exception.

Diet To Go Meal

Dietician Perry Nix says of the service, “Diet-to-Go is super convenient for people who want to lose weight by improving their diet but don’t have the time to cook meals. Meal plans include options for those following a keto, Mediterranean, or low-carb diet. These diets can promote short-term weight loss.”

RELATED: Best Meal Delivery Service for Weight Loss

Choose from hundreds of keto-friendly meal options and wait for your pre-made meals to arrive at your doorstep, ready to heat and eat! The price per serving ranges from $10.76-$15.20, depending on the number of meals in your subscriptions. You can order two or three meals per day, five or seven days per week.

Diet-to-Go works off a five-week rotating menu, with keto options such as Scrambled Egg Rancheros, Pork BBQ Ribs, and Eggplant Manicotti. Who says a low-carb diet has to be bland?

Additionally, Diet-to-Go doesn’t add any preservatives or additives to their meals. And they use organic ingredients and limit artificial sweeteners when possible.

Since this meal delivery service plan is geared toward weight loss, the calorie content is on the low side. On average, the keto plan provides 1,300 calories and 30 grams of net carbs daily. Unfortunately, while your daily calories may vary based on the meals you choose, you do not have the option to subscribe to different calorie meal plans.

Diet-to-Go delivers within the 48 contiguous states for a shipping fee of $19.98 weekly. If you live close to their facilities, you’ll receive deliveries twice weekly in insulated boxes with cold packs. Those shipped farther away will be flash-frozen and delivered in special coolers once a week.

Our tester, Lindsay, liked a lot of things about the service, but ultimately said, “Overall I wouldn’t order again. I loved the customer service, I liked the price, I liked the variety of options, but the portions were inconsistent and some meals were just not good.”

Best Customizable Keto Meal Delivery Service: Hungryroot

Good for: Those who like to customize their keto meal kits

Best Customizable

Hungryroot

GGR Score: 4.4 starstarstarstarstar

Product Highlights

  • Grocery delivery meets meal kit
  • Meal delivery service that sends you ingredients based on recipes you like
  • Many recipes only take 10 minutes to prepare
  • Starts at $70 per box

Pros & Cons

Pros

  • Simple and quick
  • Caters to many styles of eating
  • Can add on groceries to your order

Cons

  • You do have to cook
  • Have to meet plan minimum each week (though you can adjust your minimum on a weekly basis)

Bottom Line

Hungryroot offers a unique take on meal delivery, in that you find a recipe you like, and the company will send you all of the ingredients to make it. There are many options for types of food to choose from, and you can even order extra groceries that you might need as well. You do have to cook though, so if that's not interesting to you, this won't be the right plan.

If you like to customize your meal kits, Hungryroot might be your MVP. But, to be clear, Hungryroot isn’t a traditional meal kit service—it’s a fun twist on your everyday grocery shopping. Hungryroot provides personalized grocery recommendations with accompanying recipes, saving you time and giving you the freedom to prepare your own meals.

Hungryroot Food In One Delivery

Perry Nix, RD, says, “Hungryroot provides groceries and recipes for flavorful meals that can be made in just 10 minutes. Hungryroot is for those who don’t want a microwave-ready meal but also don’t have lots of time to spend prepping and cooking. Many of their ingredients, such as pasta sauce, are pre-made so you spend less time in the kitchen without sacrificing on texture and taste.” 

To start, you take a quick quiz stating your health goals, how many people you’re feeding, and any pertinent dietary preferences or needs. Then Hungryroot does the rest! They create a grocery plan and fill your cart with recipes and the necessary groceries. Talk about a grocery trip with one click! Plus, you can always change your order and adjust your recipes as needed.

Unfortunately, Hungryroot doesn’t have pre-determined keto-friendly meals, but plenty of options can fit into your keto lifestyle. Choose from premium proteins, fresh produce, healthy snacks, and delicious sweets to create many delicious keto meals. Hungryroot offers grain bowls, pasta, stir-fries, salads, and more.

Weekly plans start at $65 per delivery, which can be relatively comparable to today’s grocery bills. GGR’s head of content, Kate Meir, NASM-CPT, USAW-L1, CF-L1, put Hungryroot’s subscription to the test, ordering four lunch and dinner servings. For her plan, meals cost approximately $10 each.

“Meals were between 440-600 ish calories, which is a really good size for me. If you add the snacks they send you on top of that, you could get more out of it. My partner, a competitive weightlifter, on the other hand, wants like 800+ calories per meal, so he would add rice or bread to each meal to get more. I will say that because it’s so customizable, you can make it be almost as big or as small as you want. Every recipe gives you two servings, so you could technically get eight or more meals each time,” she says.

And, Hungryroot emphasizes sustainability through its delivery practices and role in reducing food waste. Sounds like a win-win-win to me!

Green Chef Meal Ingredients

RELATED: Best Organic Protein Powder

Setting up your subscription is simple. Choose your plan according to your lifestyle preferences and dietary needs. Then, peruse their list of 80+ weekly menu options and choose meals that speak to you. From there, it’s just a matter of time before your chef-curated meals are waiting for you on your doorstep.

Green Chef recipes come with pre-portioned ingredients (hello, organic produce!), meaning cooking your favorite meals will be a breeze. You can order 2-6 servings of 2-4 meals per week, averaging $11.99 to $13.49 per serving.

Nicole Davis, GGR’s rockstar senior editor, CPT, and Precision Nutrition Level 1 Nutrition Coach, tried Green Chef:

“The meals take about 30 minutes to cook, which is the most I’d want to spend cooking during the week. They do require multiple pieces of equipment, but it lists what you need on the recipe card.”

She goes on to say, “Overall, I liked the taste of these, but the portion size was just not great and thus the cost didn’t really make sense to me. I like that you can add on breakfast options or other add-ons (like cooked meats), and I like the actual recipe card versus having to use an app.”

When considering Green Chef, you may need to account for the quality of ingredients when weighing your options against your budget. For some, organic ingredients take priority. For others, budget wins.

Fresh And Lean Meals

GGR head of content Kate Meier was surprised by how much she liked the taste of her Fresh N’ Lean meals. “I was SHOCKED,” she said. “The meals sounded good, but once I nuked them, I didn’t think by the looks of them that they would taste good. I was surprised! The paleo red pepper chicken with sweet potatoes is delicious. Whatever sauce is on there is perfection, and everything was juicy and moist. The paleo bearnaise grass-fed steak with roasted sweet potatoes—WOW.”

Fresh N’ Lean offers a keto meal plan and Whole30, paleo, plant-based, and Mediterranean meal plans. Order one to three meals for five or seven days per week with a cost range of $8.49 to $11 per serving.

Fresh meals are delivered right to your door, ready to reheat and eat on demand. Simply microwave your meal for around 3 minutes, and you are ready to fuel up with a carb-conscious entree.

You can choose from a variety of dietary-specific meals, including Mediterranean, paleo, Whole30, keto-friendly, and vegan meals.

The Good Kitchen Meals

Chefs work alongside dietitians to prepare nutritionally balanced meals made with healthy fats, clean protein, and sustainably harvested produce. As a default, The Good Kitchen meals are always refined sugar-, gluten-, and dairy-free. Additionally, they use grass-fed beef, pastured pork, and antibiotic- and hormone-free poultry and eggs. Produce is organic when possible, GMO-free, and raised as close to The Good Kitchen as possible.

Dietician Perry Nix notes, “Dairy, soy, and peanuts are among the most common food allergens. The Good Kitchen is one the few meal delivery services that offer plans designed for individuals who need to avoid these ingredients.” 

The Good Kitchen keeps its keto meals under 15 grams of carbs by incorporating non-starchy veggies, healthy fats, and lean proteins. Examples of their keto-friendly meals include Creamy Mustard Chicken, Shredded Beef Ropas Viejas, and Lemon Garlic Chicken.

GGR staff writer Caine Wilkes tested The Good Kitchen. He appreciated the variety and the high-quality ingredients, but noted that the taste was hit or miss. “Consistently had some of the best seasoned meat for each meal, but also some of the blandest vegetable sides,” he said.

Brittany Combs, GGR’s social media manager, gave Snap Kitchen meals a try. “Overall I really liked the flavor of the meals. They include different sauces in them that I really liked, though the ranch was almost kind of pickley, which was a bit odd. My husband also tried some meals and felt like a couple needed a little extra hot sauce for his preference. My favorite was the buffalo burger with roasted cauliflower, the Korean BBQ meatballs, and the Bison quinoa bowl.”

Meals come fully prepared and vacuum-sealed to stay fresh in the fridge for seven days or in the freezer for up to three months. And cooking your meals is super simple. Pop them in the microwave, air fryer, oven, or on the stovetop.

Perry Nix, RD, LD, sums up Trifecta’s meal service perfectly: “Trifecta offers high-protein, macro-balanced meals, made for those looking to improve strength and build muscle. All meals are made with lean protein, complex carbs, and veggies. Complex carbs often used in their meals include wild rice and quinoa, both of which provide lasting energy.”

She goes on to say, “The meals are low-calorie, so you’ll likely want to add snacks between meals to meet your energy requirements for the day.”

Kate Meier, GGR head of content, agrees. “I felt like the meals were a little on the small side. I was always hungry afterward.” So definitely plan to incorporate snacks as needed when ordering through this service.

Of course, affordable value comes with some drawbacks. “When you order online, you only have the option to order six meals at a time, which could be more than some people are willing to order. Additionally, since the meals are made in bulk, you don’t have the choice to customize them, which could put off those with dietary restrictions,” says Perry Nix, RD, LD.

GGR’s media relations rockstar, Chloe Ekberg, tried some Clean Eatz meals. “Everything I ate was fresh and delicious. Since this is a franchise and I got food from the Raleigh location, the freshness and quality was unmatched compared to other food delivery services.” She even went on to say that she plans to order again!

Other Keto Meal Delivery Services We Researched

We tried to address every potential concern when creating our list of the 10 best keto meal delivery services, but no list is completely comprehensive. Here are six other meal delivery services that we researched:

  • Territory Foods: Territory Foods offer a keto-friendly meal plan that provides less than 15 grams of carbohydrates per meal. The variety of meals, while similar to The Good Kitchen’s selection, is lacking. Also, Territory Foods, unfortunately, only delivers to select cities.
  • HelloFresh: HelloFresh has earned a prominent reputation in the meal delivery industry. However, they do not focus on keto-friendly meals. For those following the keto diet, you will need to be diligent about reading the nutrition labels to ensure your meals will help you reach your goals.
Hello Fresh Meals And Cards
  • Ice Age Meals: Ice Age Culinary offers keto-friendly meals and prioritizes small-batch cooking with minimal ingredients. You can order boxes of 16, 30, or 60 meals.
  • Pete’s Real Food: Pete’s Real Food offers paleo and vegan entrees but not keto meals. You will need to be diligent about counting your macros if trying to reach a state of ketosis while eating these meals.
  • CookUnity: CookUnity offers ketogenic-friendly meals from various chefs across the country. Answer a few questions about your dietary preferences and choose meals that appeal to your taste buds. You can even filter recipes based on your geographic location.
  • ModifyHealth: ModifyHealth does not offer a keto meal plan, but they do provide a carb-conscious menu. Their ready-to-eat meals are designed by doctors and dietitians to support your health goals. ModifyHealth also gives customers the option to sign up for their FIT Quickstart program, which includes three virtual sessions with a registered dietitian to navigate their health and wellness goals.

Finding the best keto meal delivery services was no joke. The market is saturated with companies that advertise keto-friendly diet plans, but we worked together to weed through them all and compile a list of our favorites.

Benefits of Keto Meal Delivery Services

Adjusting your budget and investing the time to design a meal plan can take some trial and error, but many people find it worth the trouble. For those following a ketogenic lifestyle, meal delivery services offer a wide range of benefits.

Meal Planning

Ever feel like your brain shuts down at the end of a long day? Me, too. The last thing I want to think about when I get home is what to make for dinner. Meal delivery services help you avoid decision fatigue by planning your meals ahead of time.

Convenience

In a world that seems to turn faster every day, many of us are looking for ways to make our day-to-day more efficient. Having your groceries or prepared meal delivery service arrive at your doorstep is about as efficient as it gets. Meal services provide a significant level of convenience to your grocery shopping and macro counting.

Dinnerly Delivery On Doorstep

Sustainability 

Food waste2 continues to contribute to pollution, presenting severe environmental concerns. Meal delivery services help you streamline your serving sizes and keep your food-to-waste ratios under control.

Buying Guide: What to Look for in Keto Meal Delivery Services

We all have unique dietary needs and food preferences shaped by our culture, physical demands, and medical history. So your search for the best keto meal delivery service may yield different results from your BFF, training partner, or neighbor down the street. However, there are a few factors to consider that can help direct your search:

Meal Variety

Meal variety might be a deal breaker for some meal delivery services, especially when working with dietary restrictions like the keto diet. Look for a delivery service that offers a number of meal options you feel comfortable committing to for an extended period. With so many options on the market today, there’s no reason to suffer through meal burnout.

Factor Meals Stacked On Counter

Portion Sizes

Portion sizes can be a deal breaker for some meal delivery services. When investing in a service, you want the most bang for your buck. And while that doesn’t necessarily mean getting the most food for your money, you want to feel satisfied with the serving sizes provided. Plus, you want to know that the portions you pay for will help you meet your health and wellness goals.

Price Per Serving

Speaking of deal breakers—the cost of your meal delivery service can be a yay or a nay. There’s no need to blow your budget out of the water when choosing a keto meal delivery service, especially since it’s possible to meet your dietary needs through traditional grocery shopping alone.

Before you sign up for a subscription, know how far your investment will take you. Will you need to add supplemental foods to meet your nutrition needs? Will you be satisfied with the quality of the ingredients for the price?

Customer Service

Of course, you hope nothing goes wrong with your orders, but it’s always good to know that customer service has your back should anything go wonky. Before placing an order, consider researching how easy it is to get in touch with the company.

Sustainability Efforts  

For some, meal delivery services are an opportunity to minimize food waste and help care for the environment. However, where meal kits reduce food waste, they can increase the use of plastics. Search for companies that are diligent about recycling and green manufacturing processes.
