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.

    I mix up the recipe for 2 portions but I divide it into 3 as I found the serving too filling. I add some vanilla extract. I keep it in the fridge overnight and cook my serving in the morning. I usually have it with butter and cinnamon. I find the texture reminiscent of porridge made with rolled oats which is a pretty standard way to make porridge in the UK. I'd describe it as mucilaginous, not gelatinous.
    I do recommend leaving the mixture overnight so it thickens properly. The uncooked mix keeps perfectly well for 3 or 4 days.

    This recipe has a lot of mixed reviews, but I think it's a great base to taylor to your own taste. I've tinkered with it and love what I ended up with. I make a bunch of little containers and let it sit in the fridge at least overnight and then just microwave, top with the granola recipe from Diet Doctor, and take to work. Mix-in's so far have included cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice, canned pumpkin, maple-type flavor drops, vanilla extract, and a little brown Swerve or allulose. I also add hemp hearts and a little butter to the base, but leave out sunflower seeds since it's in the granola.

    Thanks for this recipe! Delicious! I made it in the microwave; brought it to boiling then left it on the counter for 10 minutes to thicken up. It really hit the hot cereal 'spot'. I didn't have sunflower seeds so used chopped pumpkin seeds instead. A nice change from eggs.
    For the nay sayers out there: it's NOT oatmeal porrige folks. This is KETO! If you are going to be successful on Keto you need to leave grains behind, keep an open mind and experiment to find what substitutes you like and don't like. Everyone's taste preferences (flavour and consistancy) are different. For those of us looking for constructive reviews and advice, ideas for improvement or 'mixing it up' for variety are greatly appreciated. Derogatory attacks and negative comments from people who have NOT EVEN TRIED THE RECIPE, are simply NOT helpful. If it doesn't sound yummy to you, move on!

    Hi! I tried it this morning, making it with unsweetened almond milk. I added a beaten egg and a couple drops of sweetener. I didn’t mix in the egg fast enough and got some egg white clumps, but they weren’t bad and it still tasted good. I think adding the egg added more fat and protein. Already made a big batch for future breakfasts!

    It does have a slimy consistency this is normal

    I personally a hard time with the texture, so I asked my FB friends if they had any ideas. One provided an alternate recipe from a web site. I’m not sure if I’m able to show here but, I can say it did include hemp hearts and flax was ground, it seemed to have done the trick for me. Oatmeal is a long time favourite for me in the winter months and I was fine looking for a low carb alternative as long as the taste and texture came relatively close to what I was used to.
