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.

    Tastes like olive oil. I'm having a hard time tasting any other flavors.

    Hello. What is "salsa". It means "sauce" here in Spain. What is it made of? Thanks.

    Diced tomatoes/onions, etc. You can find a salsa recipe in this link. Most commercial salsas don't have avocado, but it's a good keto friendly way to add fats.

    Hi guys! I've got a doubt... What type of olive oil do u use as for "LIGHT OLIVE OIL"? Let me explain myself...

    There are many different types of olive oil but let's simplify this into 3: Extra virgyn olive oil, Virgyn Olive oil and Refined Olive oil.
    The first one is the one everyone should consume. It's just excellent. The second one is almost as good as the first one. But the third one is not even suitable for human consume, as this is form of 20% maximum of the mixture from virgyn and extra virgyn olive oil, but the 80% left is made of refined olive oil, which is just the bad olives left and, chemically processed to reduce the acidity and avoid bad taste.
    Maximum acidity allowed is 2%, otherwise it doesn't taste nice and health benefits will just vanish. So as the Refined olive oil contains way much than 2%... Here it comes the chemical process... In order to make it tasty, look nice and smell okay. But it's bad for human consume.

    So my question is... Which one of these 3 olive oils is the one you name as "light olive oil"?

    Sorry, this is not a complaint at all, it's just a doubt. Plus I'm Spanish and my hometown lives out of the olive oil production... 😅

    Try without so much oil. I used about a 1/3 of the recommended and added a bit of water.
