Keto: A week of OMAD #1

OMAD is short for “One Meal a Day” and it’s an increasingly popular way of doing time-restricted eating or intermittent fasting. This meal plan helps you do it in a safe and effective way, ensuring you get enough calories and protein each day while helping you meet your low-carb and weight loss goals. The plan has you alternating OMAD one day followed by two meals, lunch and dinner, the next day. It is simple and no fuss. And you’ll be eating delicious, nourishing meals. Do make sure you drink lots of water (tea or black coffee is fine, too.) And get enough salt to minimize side effects like headaches and keto flu.

    As a slight alteration, for somewhat of a bigger portion (sidedish wise), you can do it as follows:
    Steam the spinach. You can use the microwave for fastest results (or whatever steaming method you prefer). Combine with half of the butter and a small dash of lemon juice.
    You can also discard the bell pepper and use a bit more spinach leaves. Red bell pepper contains 4x more carbs than spinach. 1/4 of a medium bell pepper equals roughly 30g.
