The first thing one needs to remember is that weight loss is unique for every person. During the first few months of Banting, you’re probably going to experience dramatic weight loss as your body adapts to the new diet.
If you have decided to go on the Banting diet, you are at the right place, as this 7-day Banting meal plan will help you stay on track. This article provides a weekly meal plan, based on low-carb meals and food anyone who is Banting can eat.
Besides the fact that these meals are low-carb, high in fat, and diet friendly, they are also gluten free. Therefore, they are even healthier for you!
You can see for yourself that this meal plan resembles the Paleo way of eating, as it is a low-carb, high-fat diet and also gluten free. The difference is that Paleo way of eating excludes all forms of dairy.
