Gousto is a meal delivery service, so you get your box delivered any day you wish, with the number of kits you've ordered. The instructions tell you what kitchen equipment you'll need and how to prep the measured ingredients included.
We like that there are a huge number of options, so you can filter through the dishes by everyday favourites, calorie-controlled meals, Lean in 15 menus, or kits you can cook in under 10 minutes.
If you're chasing a weight loss goal, the calorie-controlled options have around 300-400 calories a serving on average. They include Cantonese Soy-Baked Basa and Autumn Ratatouille (not bad for a low-calorie diet!).
Price: Regular box (two adults or one adult and 1-2 kids) - £24.99 for two recipes, £29.99 for three recipes or £34.99 for four recipes. Large box (four adults or two adults and 2-3 kids) - £31.75 for two recipes, £42.75 for three recipes or £47.75 for four recipes
Key Feature: Flexible meal delivery kits with a massive array of menu choices
Nutrition Plan Goals: Any! Choose from calorie-controlled to gluten-free, plant-based diets to vegetarian dishes.
There aren't as many meals available in some weight loss categories, but every menu looks tasty, fresh, and easy to prepare, so it's great for people without culinary skills who want to make nutritious and healthy meals for all the family.
If you get stuck or need any help, you can contact Gousto through their website, read through the FAQs or scroll the general help topics to learn more about the delivery service.
Talking of deliveries, they're FREE, cover most of the UK, and each box can be left in your designated safe place.
Gousto delivers the ultimate in meal kit flexibility. You don't need to sign your life away for the next year or commit to weekly deliveries if you just fancy one box to give it a go!
What's great is that you can mix and match, so if you want to improve your health or just make better meals for the kids, you can select from the family favourites and have a night in with something hearty and healthy.
You can also add calorie-controlled dishes, with portions to suit between one and four adults, so it's effortless to adapt your boxes to different dietary needs or nutrition goals.
Gousto meal kits are zero waste since you get everything you need, no more, no less.
Are you looking to reduce your food wastage or make a batch of something delicious, with every ingredient measured and prepared to provide the perfect balance of nutrition and calorie density? We'd give Gousto a go.

As the first keto recipe box in the UK, Green Chef has some delicious recipes. Most are high protein, so perfect for building muscle, losing fat, or improving overall health.
You will need to cook them yourself, but have instructions and exact preparation details, so you'll end up with a decent dinner even if you're not a whizz in the kitchen!

The service at Green Chef is pretty flawless. You can skip a delivery at any time, cancel online, and mix and match whichever of the weekly recipes you'd like to try.
A Help Centre has FAQs about everything from sustainability to vouchers, understanding keto, and changing your delivery schedule, so managing your account is straightforward.
All of the recipes come with comprehensive instructions, including a list of exactly which kitchen appliances or tools you'll need - not that any require you to do a great deal of prep or need any specialist equipment!
If you need a hand, you can contact Green Chef via the pop up Live Chat, which will refer you to a customer services representative if you can't find the answer right away.
Keto has a lot of kudos, but it's tricky for anyone with a busy day to measure out ingredients or avoid feasting on carbs when they're ready to hit the hay!
Green Chef deliveries are an excellent option for anyone who is keto-curious or keen to follow a weight loss diet without sacrificing the joy of a delicious dinner.
The ingredients are of great quality, the company showcases a commitment to sustainability, and managing your subscription is flexible and accessible.
While not specifically aimed at kids, you can add to your keto box with balanced meals, vegan and veggie options, so it's possible to switch up your recipes and cater for all of the family, even the fussiest eaters!
Noom isn't anything you'll have tried before. It's not a meal plan or a delivery service. You won't get recipes, calories, points, Syns or anything remotely similar!
Instead, it's a bit like a psychological game, all designed to help you make better choices, build healthier habits, and work to overcome obstacles that have been holding you back from your goals.
When you register, you answer a load of questions about your weight, lifestyle and aims, and then you get started. The app prompts you to log in every day, work through different modules, and answer a pop quiz now and then (they're not stressful, we promise!).
It's not just a game, though - you learn techniques to analyse why you behave the way you do and strategies to improve your diet and overall well being. A survey of 35,921 participants over nine months found that 78% sustained weight loss, so there's got to be something in it!
Price: Two months - £29.50/month / £59 total
Key Feature: Mobile app requiring just ten minutes a day
Nutrition Plan Goals: Addressing your mindset to help you achieve health or weight loss goals
We'll be honest - when you first join, the profile process is lengthy. There are lots, and lots, and lots of questions, but it's all part of how Noom builds a picture of where you're at and what you need to get to your target.
Once you're registered, it's straightforward to use. You'll get a notification on your mobile if you're overdue a session and can flick through modules if you're interested in learning about something different.
There are also various support groups you can join or premium upgrades where you get a Noom coach to check in with and see how you're going!
If you need help, you can Live Chat with Noom Support, use the FAQs section to scroll through answers to common questions, email the CEO Saeju Jeong at firstname.lastname@example.org, or give the US team a call.
Noom is a brilliant idea because it takes all the pressure of restriction and controls away, giving back the ability to think about your lifestyle and diet more holistically.
The emphasis isn't only on weight loss but on breaking persistent habits and giving yourself a better chance of living the way you want.
It's very much a 21st-century solution for people struggling with their weight, and it's refreshing to see a health-based app that doesn't require you to stick to a specific (meagre!) calorie allowance but concentrates on getting your head in the right space to make those great choices on your own terms.
Keto Cycle claims to provide weight loss solutions through personalised meal plans; all centred on the concept of a keto diet - pretty much a low-carb, high-fat nutrition schedule that is meant to burn extra fat!
Subscribers have the option of using an accompanying workout regime designed for beginners, and there is a tonne of added extras, like a step counter and water tracker.
It's not a meal delivery plan but a shopping and nutrition guide, calculated by an algorithm against your lifestyle questions and diet requirements. You select which foods you like to eat (from the keto list, of course!), and there are options for vegetarians.
You'll need to choose your subscription first and receive your plan in about two hours, delivered via email. The app works on Android or iPhone, so you can take your lists with you and log your steps and workouts as you go.
Price: Three months - £2.33/week / £27.96 total, Six months - £1.63/week / £39.12 total, One year - £1.17/week / £56.16 total
Key Feature: Personalised shopping lists and meal planners
Nutrition Plan Goals: Weight loss, based on BMI and calculated calorie intake
Keto Cycle is based in Lithuania, and you can contact their customer service helpdesk at email@example.com or use the Contact Us form under every Help Centre article on the website.
Much of the diet planning is automated through the app. Still, each plan is double-checked by a consultant and supervisor to be appropriate for your weight loss goals, which you enter at sign-up.
The online Help Centre has a list of categories where you can scroll through various options such as payments, subscriptions and dietary enquiries to see common questions.
One of the great perks is that Keto Cycle is available in no less than eleven languages, and it's pretty easy to filter through the FAQs, raise a question, or shoot a query off to the Keto Cycle support team.
Keto is one of those diets that has been doing the rounds for a long time. However, it's not easily accessible for millions of people who don't know where to start or get the concept of healthy fats - not least trying to budget for pricey bespoke meals!
Keto Cycle is beyond simple to use, even if you haven't the foggiest about keto diets or the benefits available.
You get a personalised shopping list, clear instructions, and stacks of features to ensure you follow the plan with minimal effort and maximum results.
