While there are many different ways to eat on a ketogenic diet, after all, it is really very difficult to figure out and practice on your own because of the strict requirements for carbohydrate control.
At the request of this reader, I’ve put together a 7-day, 21-meal, 26-course 26 keto recipe for 21 meals in 7 days. I chose a menu that is not only ketogenic friendly, but cooking friendly as well. So I hope it will help you lose more and more weight the more you eat. meal plan. I’m afraid you won’t be able to finish one dish and sometimes recommend two, so hopefully that will help you eat more and leaner. And I’ve picked a menu that is not only ketogenic friendly, but also friendly to white people who cook and disabled cooks. If you’re interested in giving it a try, you can use your weekend to shop for ingredients. Maybe, after 7 days, you’ll not only lose weight, but you’ll love to cook!
Before pulling out the meal list, please note that.
- The following three groups are not candidates for the keto diet.
- People who have diabetes and are on targeted medication
- People with hypertension who are on targeted medication
- Women who are breastfeeding
2. Although the ketogenic diet is safe for most people if you feel serious discomfort during the practice, it is best to return to your old way of eating immediately.
3. Due to my long-term practice of light fasting over the past two years, my body seems to produce ketone bodies easily with strict carb control, and I start losing weight after two or three days; however, each person is different individually, and if you do not lose weight after two weeks of strict ketogenic dieting, then this may not be the right approach for you.
4. In the coming week, your body may experience discomfort from quitting sugar (quitting carbohydrates is also quitting sugar). Symptoms may include thirst, headache, irritability, dizziness, insomnia, etc. Drinking plenty of water and moderate amounts of lightly salted water will provide some relief.
5. After I reached my ideal weight, I stopped strictly controlling my carbohydrates and maintained it through 8-16 intermittent fasting (please refer to the old article “8-16 Intermittent Fasting” to share my experience). So far this year, as a healthy habit, I have been setting aside 5-7 days a month to implement a ketogenic diet. I have had no experience with the effects of a ketogenic diet for more than two months in a row.
6. If you are on a ketogenic diet, don’t snack outside of your three meals during the ketogenic diet in order to avoid accidentally consuming carbohydrates from other sources; during the first 7 days, even if you don’t have time to follow my menu exactly, you can choose a few of your favorite dishes and repeat them, but try not to eat foods outside of this menu to avoid accidentally over-carving.
7. Eat until you’re full, not until you’re full! Remember to remember!
Breakfast: Fried Eggs with Bacon
Ingredients: 2-3 slices of bacon, 1-2 eggs, a pinch of salt
Directions: Heat a pan and pour 1 tablespoon of olive oil into it, add the bacon and fry it slowly. The recommended cooking oil for the ketogenic diet is butter, olive oil, coconut oil, or lard, and it is not recommended to use such things as soybean oil, peanut oil, or canola oil. The science behind this is a bit complicated and will be explained another day. I’m not a fan of animal oils and I don’t like the low melting point of olive oil, so I actually used sunflower oil (a little cheat), which is called dirty Keto by professionals.

There are many kinds of sweeteners, most of which are not ketogenic-friendly. We recommend stevia, or rooibos (Monk Fruit). Of course, if you can stick to it, it’s best to leave out any sweeteners.

Write at the end
During your first week on the ketogenic diet, you will become more sensitive to your body’s reactions such as taste, energy, memory, and reaction time, and perhaps changes in some old symptoms, or perhaps new ones such as migraines and moodiness. It’s a wonderful feeling as if you’re having a conversation with your body.
Each person’s body is a unique and sophisticated instrument, and we need to treat it with respect and reverence. The ketogenic diet, or any other diet for that matter, is a shock to a body that has been in a state of inertia for a long time. If your positive feelings outweigh the negative ones, you can stick with it longer until you reach your weight loss goal; if your negative feelings are too great, your body is protesting to you, so stop it and keep looking for a healthy way to eat that works for you.
