I’ve got a confession to make. I used to hate cooking meals while being on a diet.
…Doing all this work and getting bland, tasteless food in return? Yuck!
When I first discovered ketogenic diet, I was mesmerized. Wait, you can eat all that tasty bacon every day and lose weight? Where do I sign up?
The important thing for me was that I started enjoying cooking again and, in the process, created this easy 7-day ketogenic diet meal plan to lose weight. It is dead simple to make, and it won’t break your bank.
First week is all about starting out with ketogenic foods, getting your bacon on, and reaching ketosis fast!
It took me 4 days to get into ketosis with this diet plan, and let me tell you, once I got there, my food cravings and stress eating went away, my energy levels are in all time high, and here is the cherry on top of the regular cherry on a sundae, I started losing weight fast.

Let me start with my keto shopping list that you can use at any supermarket. I usually go to Kroger, but all of these keto friendly foods can be purchased at your local grocery store. No fancy items on the list. Just the basics to get into ketosis and minimize keto flu.
When I first went to the store to shop for keto friendly foods, I spent 2 hours going from isle to isle and reading all nutritional labels. I quickly realized that there are not that many foods out there to fit my new ketogenic diet meal plan.
I don’t want you to spend 2 hours at the store, but what I want you to do is to look at foods that you usually eat, and try to find keto friendly equivalents for your future recipes.
