Keto: Enjoy losing weight (16:8) #1

If you want to lose weight while still enjoying amazing food, we’ve got the perfect meal plan for you.

To help turn you into a fat-burning machine, we’ve decided to employ intermittent fasting (16:8) in this week’s meal plan. This means your first meal will be at lunch — but feel free to drink coffee, tea, and of course, water throughout the day.

This mouth-watering ketogenic menu will keep you way below 20 grams of carbs per day. It includes some popular budget-friendly meals, such as our No-bean keto chili and Crispy tuna burgers, plus a few more elevated meals like our
Ribeye steak with loaded cauliflower mash.

Remember, you can always swap pricey ingredients such as ribeye with cheaper protein options such as chicken thighs or pork chops. Just make sure to adjust the cooking time as needed.

By skipping breakfast, you’ll automatically save money that you could potentially spend on higher-quality ingredients such as grass-fed beef and organic eggs — a good investment for your body, the animals, and the environment.

    Any vegan keto information?

    Well, I’ve searched this site and it looks like you’d have to cobble something together yourself, vegan wise. Here’s a soup you could try. Vegan kale and spinach soup. Oh, sorry, I thought I copied the link. Just type vegan into the search box. Good luck!

    What if you do not like mayo?

    You can omit it and substitute with ranch or blue cheese dressing or other fatty sauce as you prefer.

    What if you don't like avocado?

    Then you can omit it. That will lower the fat content in the recipe somewhat though.

    I was craving a BLT and found this recipe. I had to make some changes due to ingredients on hand, I only had salad in a bag and cherry tomatoes. I slices and roasted the cherry tomatoes, and made a salad with all the ingredients, cutting up the bacon. I added a little bit of ranch dressing for added tase. It was delicious and will be an easy go-to lunch in the future.
