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.

    Looks interesting... would substituting chopped black olives for the pimentos cause too much of a change in macros? I really do not like pimentos....

    I tried this with the jalapeno peppers since I could not find the pimentos. Was nice and spicy! Spread it on those shredded cheese crisps you can make or buy...

    Pimientos are available packed in water in the pickle/condiment section of your store.

    Is it me? I don't see pimentos in the ingredient list. Are the jalepenos in addition to some pimentos, or used as a substitute? Thanks~ (I want to try the pimento-meatball recipe..looks yummy!)
  5. Denise
    I agree with Liz!

    Instructions state to let cool. Are we to cook everything together? Where are the pimientos? Very poor instructions.

    Would be great if dietdoctor would give more nutrional information. Only %, that doesn't tell me how much g/portion of protein or fat in the recipe. A breakdown like ruled.me use would be great

    Hi JSF!

    Sorry but we don't want to promote to much "counting" that's why we only have the carbs in gram.

    But If you feel that this is important to you then use the formula below to calculate, a bit complicated though. ;-)

    (%PROTEIN / %CARB) * gram_CARB = gram_PROTEIN
    (%FAT / %CARB) * 4/9 * gram_CARB = gram_FAT

    You find the nutritional info by holding your mouse pointer at "Nutrition" at the end of the recipe.

    Is the nutrition per serving or for four servings?
  13. Tara
    How much is a serving

    I keep this in the refrigerator all the time. Its great on low carb sesame crisp bread. I use jarred roasted red peppers. Chopped green or black olives sounds good.
