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.

    Cool recipe, especially in winter when leafy greens are not in season.
    I‘d just add the info that raw kale is tough to digest, and people who consume it regularly (e.g. green smoothies) in some quantities may risk thyroid problems.
    Nowadays, when every superfood is distorted by a ‚more-is-more‘ mentality, this unfortunately bears reminding.

    Oh, and I especially like your quick, no-bla-bla, ‘Tasty’-style filmed-from-the-top recipe videos, they’re a delight to watch in a moment’s notice.
