Hello beautiful friends! So today I thought I would share some meal plans to help you get started with the keto diet (if you’re considering it). These are great to start with so you have a baseline of how to begin and then you can customize and go from there. Sometimes it just helps to have a keto week long meal plan already planned out when you first get started. That way there’s no thinking involved! 🙂
This is a great beginner guide that includes 6 day’s worth of meals and the recipes to go along with it. This is from the Keto Reddit group: AreYouReadyToReddit’s Guide to Pre-Portioning Meals, and Keto Friendly Recipes.
This next one is really great because it’s for 7 days and it provides the breakdown of macros for each meal as well as the recipe. Seeing the calories and macros is helpful in planning your week, so if you want to move things around you can. This is from Caveman Keto: Caveman Keto’s 7 Day Keto Meal Plan.
This next one has a bunch of different keto plans you can try. There’s a 3 day kickstart one and she even has a weekly meal plan for 12 weeks! This is from I Breathe I’m Hungry: Menu Plans.
The last one I would share with you today provides a 2 week sample meal plan plus a ton of other resources. This is from Peace Love and Low Carb: The Ultimate Low Carb Resource Guide: Recipes, Meal Plans, Shopping Lists, and More.
Another useful tool is this awesome Google document that lists acceptable foods, the serving size, and their carb counts. This can be really helpful if you don’t use something to log your food. It can also be helpful in meal prepping. Here it is: Carb Counts – Printable list of acceptable foods and their carb counts.
It’s always helpful to have a keto meal plan to reference so you take the guess work out of starting something new. Planning is also essential in losing weight. Calories and carbs can creep in everywhere and quickly, so you want to make sure you plan, plan, plan. Like I mentioned before, it is essential to weight and log everything in order to assure you’re in a calorie deficit and within your macros.
