Low carb: High protein for effective weight loss #1

Not seeing the results you want with other keto or low-carb meal plans? Then, consider giving this higher protein plan a try.

The main difference between this meal plan and our other meal plans is that the included recipes have a higher protein percentage (more than 30%). This means the meals have a little less fat, but they are not low fat — you get to keep the butter! — and the carb count is low.

Research shows that by focusing on the protein — rather than only thinking about carbs — people often experience effective weight loss.

This highly nutritious low-carb meal plan is packed with flavorful meals, such as our famous Keto crack chicken and a delicious Italian fish stew, which will keep you nourished and satisfied.

Even though this meal plan is technically low carb, it includes a bunch of keto recipes. So, you’ll stay well below 23 grams of net carbs most of the days.
