Whether it’s for long-term diet solutions or to jumpstart your weight-loss journey, the keto diet is a trend that is here to stay.
There is no way of denying the popularity of the keto diet, both in Thailand and around the world. However, finding good keto-friendly food in Bangkok can be a bit of a challenge. Because of the nature of Thai cuisine — which is often not complete without rice — you might find it difficult to maintain this diet, especially on this side of the globe. But that doesn’t mean keto-friendly food is nowhere to be found. If you’re unsure where to order keto-friendly meals in Bangkok, here’s a list for you.
