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.

    Could I substitute fried ground sausage for the air-dried chorizo?

    I have been doing the Keto diet for two weeks, technically the challenge week 1 only but started on my own for the first week to ease into it. I have only lost a 1lb which I am surprised as I have been exercising too. However, I do see that my stomach is getting flatter. I hope next week to see a better drop in weigh as that helps to motivate me.

    I followed Keto for 6 weeks and gained 10 pounds. I had no sugar and kept carbs below 50/ day the whole time. I believe the total amount of Fat really does count. The increased fat content was the only difference from my regular diet.
