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.

    This is delicious! I substituted ham for salmon, tastes divine and so quick and easy!

    360°F is 180°C, not 150°C. I made this and made the mistake of not converting it myself, which I usually do since I tend to OCD. Which temp is the correct one?

    Never mind, it has to be at least 180°C because I had overbaked mine at 150°C and it still is undone in the middle. I hope I can save it by covering it with foil and baking it longer because a couple of the ingredients are pretty expensive in Sweden for a poor student. =(

    I am sorry that this recipe was not a success for you. I have asked the recipe team to review the baking time conversion.
