Did you know the keto diet was introduced around the 1920s as a way to control epilepsy? The diet mimicked the metabolism of fasting, which made it a great treatment for epilepsy. For nearly two decades the keto diet was used to treat epilepsy, but as modern medicine progressed, using the keto diet as a way to control epilepsy dramatically declined.

Fast forward to today and the keto diet is commonly used as an effective way to lose weight, reduce hunger, and improve type 2 diabetes or metabolic syndrome. A keto or ketogenic diet is basically a diet that’s low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat, and full of veggies. For many, it’s a diet to lose weight, but for others, it’s simply a lifestyle choice.

If you follow a keto diet, Mealprep has put together a list of the top 5 Australian keto-friendly meal kit providers to help you choose the right one for you and your needs. We based our list on the following criteria:

  • Cost: What’s the cost per serving?
  • Keto focus: Does the company cater exclusively to keto diets, or does it also offer meals for other diets?
  • Customisation: Can you personalise your order?
  • Subscription: Do you need a subscription, or can you buy on an as-needed basis?

Let’s get to it!
