Moderate Low-Carb (quality wholefood carbs), High-Fibre, High-Ingredient-Variety, No Additives.
Keto/Banting/LCHF eating styles all have a foundation based on eliminating added sugar and highly refined carbohydrates. It’s important to control the quantity and quality of carbs that you eat or drink. A large percentage of modern weight and medical conditions can be attributed to what we call “Carbohydrate Disease”, which stems from eating too many sweetened foods, junk foods, bread, refined flours, breakfast cereals, starchy foods, sweets and all soft drinks. Our meal kits aim to provide you with around 50g of quality Net Carbs per day or less (Net Carbs = Total Carbs minus Fibre).
While strict Keto/LCHF does work well for some people, some of the time... it certainly does not suit or work for everyone. Many keto style diets restrict or eliminate many foods (that have highly beneficial nutrients and fibre) which is why there is a move towards moderation and allowing more of the food groups if the quantity is managed (e.g. the inclusion of smaller amounts of lentils, legumes, chickpeas, colourful veg, brown rice).
The misconception around fats and oils. People think that keto is a license to add unlimited fats/oils to everything (DNA test can determine how you respond to fats and whether you will personally respond positively or negatively to saturated and unsaturated fats). There certainly are benefits to high fat (for some people) to stave off hunger or improve focus. Experiment and find out what works for your body. Our meals come with normal fat/oil levels so if you can add coconut oil/butter (Saturated fat) or olive oil (Unsaturated fat) based on your personal requirements.
There are various forms of Keto (Low Carb <20g carb/day, Moderate <50g, Liberal <100g). Ours is a Moderate Keto Plan with up to 50g per day. From experience, we learn that moderation almost always beats extremism. We need to eat for nutrient density, oil is not nutrient-dense and Keto is not a licence to eat as much meat protein as you want either. Keto diets keep evolving and a moderate, enjoyable, nutrient diverse and dense lifestyle is almost always better. We've seen phenomenal results with real FitChef food positively affecting health, weight management, focus and energy.
Go moderate keto for the long term!
It is very hard to live a successful keto lifestyle unless you plan ahead. Most products in shops will derail your success, you can’t expect to find food on the run. That’s why FitChef is the most convenient way to enable your keto lifestyle.
Low-Carb High-Fibre High-Variety
FitChef is committed to producing food with high-quality ingredients, always closer to natures version (read our food labels, we have the cleanest ingredient lists you will ever find). Not only are we obsessed with real food ingredients with high fibre (to feed your good gut bacteria), we also avoid all man-made chemicals, additives, colourants, flavourants, added sugar or artificial sweeteners, meats are free-range, routine antibiotic and hormone-free (free-range) and we have started the move towards synthetic pesticide-free produce.
Everything you need
With FitChef you get everything you need: 1,2 or 3 meals/day for 6 days/week, a wide variety of meals and ingredients so you don’t get bored, plus a few additional snacks. In our Keto Kits, we don't include smoothies or fruit/sweet snacks.
Why does FitChef food make all the difference?
Firstly, ingredient choice is critical, we’re just more obsessed with real food ingredients than others (Please compare our ingredient labels, this wasn’t an easy achievement). Secondly, our food doesn’t have fake, refined and chemical additives (#EatClean). Thirdly, if you had good food you would eat it and we’ve made healthy food more convenient than junk by supplying packages and Recurring Orders.
We deliver to work or home or collect from our Johannesburg or Cape Town offices. We deliver to most major cities around South Africa. We can split your order into 2 deliveries (For Gauteng and Cape Town only). Delivery takes 2 - 4 working days after payment has been received.
If you don't have enough freezer space (we suggest 1 shelf/week) then we do offer split delivery on larger kits/packages, only in Gauteng and Cape Town and surrounds. This means we will send you half your order now and the the second half on the next convenient date.
If you have special or personalised requirements; you can ask for this to be made to your kit in the delivery notes found on checkout and we will make the needed changes e.g. No pasta/wheat/gluten, no garlic, no dairy etc.)

Such amazing food. So tasty and so healthy all at once. Good portion sizes and notably they don't skimp on protein. I especially appreciate the use of "real" ingredients. No sneaky stuff in there.
Chloë Jäger reviewed FitChef Food - Eating Concepts – 5 star
Great value for money and delicious food and beverages! I love the ginger, lemon, pineapple refresher and my favourite meal (so far) is the beef pesto bun-less burger. Apart from the food being so tasty, it's soooo convenient which is great for a lazy cook like myself :)
Craig Colin Roy McLeod reviewed FitChef Food - Eating Concepts – 5 star
Amazing food, you do need a full empty freezer. Quality and taste of the meals is amazing. Eating healthy does not taste like sadness and war crimes for a change. It has basically removed all excuses to not eat healthy. Totally sold on this as a way of life that saves me time and money and gets rid of my excuses.

I absolutely LOVE Fit Chef because not only does it mean no dishes, quick warming up, more time to spend on the V Pack and writing up meal and training programs - but the meals are ever so tasty and healthy at the same time! What could be better?
Thank you for your sterling service. I started with FitChef in February of this year. I've have always been overweight but this year you have helped me lose and keep off 25kg and counting! I intend to lose the same amount again and am actually able to manage a workout schedule and have joined a gym to continue my journey. I will continue to be a loyal customer, thanks again.

Daar is soveel gesonde kos wat mens nou te koop kan kry wat ook lekker is, die corn produkte het regtig heerlike produkte wat julle kan probeer net om julle eers af te kry van wat julle nou eet. Later pla vleis nie eers meer nie. Ek is mal oor my bord lekker groete.

My wife and I signed up for the 21 day couples package. All I can say is that FitChef is not a typical healthy pre-prepped meal, the meals are incredibly tasty. My wife is a very fussy eater and even she can’t stop talking about it. Very glad I decided to signup.

Every meal taste different and certainly not bland at all. We are loving the whole Eating Clean concept. The smoothies and shots are excellent too. And of course there is a convenience factor in the case that everyone in the house works different times.
