Keto meal plan: Dairy-free (16:8) #2

Dairyfree(16-8)2_16x9

Could dairy products be slowing your weight loss or interfering with your potential to make health gains? Try a week of dairy-free meals and see how you feel. Some people are sensitive to dairy and make more progress without it.

This week’s delicious lineup is the second in our series of keto dairy-free meal plans, which incorporate intermittent fasting (or 16:8). On this meal plan, when you fast, you’ll skip breakfast, which is a dietary tactic some people take when they want to overcome a weight-loss plateau.

Intermittent fasting can also help to improve blood sugar levels and, in some cases, has proven helpful in reversing diabetes.

Among this week’s star dishes, you’ll enjoy Diet Doctor’s flavorful keto chicken garam masala, succulent pulled pork, and keto crispy Chinese pork with cabbage.

And remember: With this week’s lineup, you can feel free to adjust, change, or skip any meal. It’s completely up to you!
