Because they don’t make it easy to lose weight and keep the weight off. My “21 Day Keto Diet” by My Keto Coach makes it simple to enjoy the foods you love—without calorie counting! We have made this diet specifically for those that just don’t have time to cook elaborate ketogenic meals but love great tasting food – and want results*! My goal is to get you into ketosis, and eventually keto adapted!
I get many questions about intermittent fasting, the health benefits, the weight loss benefits, and the like. People normally use intermittent fasting for both the energy and mental clarity it can offer. But it’s not just good for that. It can offer breakthroughs of plateaus and even benefits in nutrient uptake in exercise. We go more in depth to intermittent fasting in Week 3 and 4, so keep your eyes peeled!
Love this! So glad I found you! Your menus are great, you make it easy with the shopping lists, (now if I could just find someone to do the shopping for me ;-)) I usually fall off the wagon to easy, my usual excuse not knowing what to make, but with your menus and lists it gives me no excuse. I just started and am anxious to see how it goes. I have also started my exercise again!
In terms of weight loss, you may be interested in trying the ketogenic diet because you’ve heard that it can make a big impact right away. And that’s true. “Ketogenic diets will cause you to lose weight within the first week,” says Mattinson. She explains that your body will first use up all of its glycogen stores (the storage form of carbohydrate). With depleted glycogen, you’ll drop water weight. While it can be motivating to see the number on the scale go down (often dramatically), do keep in mind that most of this is water loss initially.
Karen, I have done Keto cow-dairy free for 1 1/2 years. I recommend you try goat and sheep cheeses - they have very small amounts of lactose. Soft goat cheese can replace sour cream. I have severe lactose intolerance and can eat a couple of ounces around 3 days a week without much, if any, discomfort. That takes care of the cheese items in recipes. I use full fat unsweetened coconut milk as a substitute for cream and a combination of the coconut milk and unsweetened almond milk as milk. Unrefined virgin coconut oil is a life saver - I use it for everything - definitely every recipe which calls for butter. If you look at recipes on line these ingredients usually make it possible to convert almost any recipe to dairy free. Using coconut oil for fat bombs works great - you can put it with coconut, unsweetened cocoa powder, pb2, pecans and macadamias. Any combination you can think of. The oil melts when warm and solidifies when cold so you can make little pb cups, macadamia nut clusters... Hope this helps!
I wanted to put it out there that I made this meal plan specifically with women in mind. I took an average of about 150 women and what their macros were. The end result was 1600 calories – broken down into 136g of fat, 74g of protein, and 20g net carbs a day. This is all built around a sedentary lifestyle, like most of us live. If you need to increase or decrease calories, you will need to do that on your own terms.
Funny story, I didn’t mean to start the keto diet. My best friend has been doing it for a few months, and I was not really paying close attention to her journey. I assumed it was too restrictive for me, and I love food, so conversely hate “restrictive”. I’ve been lowering calories, eating more protein/vegetables, fewer carbs and working out. I feel great, but I’m not really losing weight, which is frustrating. But, being 44, i was beginning to accept it as part of my metabolic process. The funny thing is, one day I felt like total, deep-fried dog crap. It was right before going on vacation: body aches, dizziness, irritability, I was sure I caught the flu. IN SUMMER!! Awful. However, the next day I woke up, feeling mildly better, and a conversation with my bestie came back to me. Could this be keto flu???? I loaded up on electrolytes that day, WHAM it was gone. I went on vacation and just limited my carbs because I wanted to eat all the good stuff (fatty, hot cheesy, meaty scrumptiousness), but not get gluten bloat. I LOST WEIGHT. YEAAHHHH!!!!!! So I did some research and realized that keto was definitely for me because it really is all my favorite foods. I love to cook, so I had been creating clean, gluten free recipes for quite some time. So now I’m here with you because I loved the name of your blog, just about every recipe appeals to me, as does your writing style. So relatable. I just wanted to share how excited I am to be here, at ground zero of what is to me, a life changing experience. Starting a diet is usually done with grim determination, but today, I’ve never been more excited to start a diet! Looking forward to exploring this gem of a site!

Ideally, a keto meal plan means eating within a specific window of time rather than grazing and snacking all through the day. This is also called intermittent fasting and can be done in a variety of ways. One simple way to do it is to eat your last meal before 7:00 p.m. and not eat again until 11:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. the following day. That way we “fast” while we sleep and give the digestive system an extended rest period which allows our cells to increase energy production and efficiency.
I for one loved this article, and my very first thought after I read it (and before I read any comments) was I could have written this article! I thought the point of the article was how simple it is to eat this way....and how freeing it is....and therefore sustainable...finally! A way of eating that in its simplicity is sustainable for life. I could have written that article, right down to living in beautiful B.C. (Kootenay boundary) with a huge vegetable garden and access to farm eggs, meat, butter and cheese and “buying local” whenever I can. Part of the reason I started this way of eating was because I wanted to get away from prepackaged food, from reading labels, from someone else having control of what I eat...and those companies can be sneaky with their ingredients. So for me anyway (and I’m retired with time on my hands, no judgement here to anyone) I just prefer to make it myself...and I’m also finding the longer I do it, the simpler it is becoming, just like Anne. I only wish I had realized sooner just how simple it was going to be to change my life in such a positive way.
