Which diet is best for me3

Which is the best low carb diet?

We’re all different. That’s why we offer recipes with a spectrum of carb, fat, and protein levels to suit everyone’s needs. On top of that, we also provide dairy-free, vegetarian, and vegan dietary options. We suggest that you try our different kinds of recipes to see what works for you.

All of our recipes are nutritious and much lower in carbs than “traditional” recipes, so most people can mix and match the recipes they love the most and still reach their health goals. At the end of the day, the best diet is the one you can turn into a lifestyle.

Each recipe has a colored circle, indicating the strictness (yellow = moderate low carb, orange = liberal low carb, green = keto), carb count, and protein level (the blue outline). Hover or click the circle on the recipe images to see full nutrition information.

Moderate and liberal low carb

Low carb

Our family-friendly moderate and liberal low carb recipes (5-20 E% net carbs) restrict your carb intake while being flexible. In addition to weight loss, a low carb diet is beneficial for maintaining a healthy lifestyle.


Ketogenic low carb


Our top-rated ketogenic recipes (5 E% or 7 g of net carbs or less if it’s a meal) are a bit more restrictive. Still, they are usually more effective for weight loss without hunger and to reverse type 2 diabetes or metabolic syndrome.


High protein low carb

High protein

Our protein-rich recipes (25 E% +) provide the maximum amount of nutrients per calorie, often resulting in fat loss while sustaining muscle mass. A good option if your weight loss stalled or if you prefer less fatty foods.
