7 DAY BANTING DIET PLAN

If you want to lose weight and reap the benefits of The Banting diet, it is important that you remember to do away with sugar and alcohol. Regulate your body first, and then slowly incorporate foods to see how your body reacts. Remember that you are in control of your body so you can change and try other food options according to how you feel.

Taking note of the side effects of this diet is also important. During the first week or so you will more than likely experience “The Low Carb Flu”.

The Low Carb flue side effects are as follows:

  • Headaches
  • Carb Cravings
  • Nasea

These side effects come from your body getting rid of toxins as well as withdrawals from all those bad foods and sugars your body has gotten used to over the years.

The rules of the diet are simple and easy to keep up with. All that you need to do is eat food low in carbohydrates, enjoy foods that are high in fats and consume an acceptable amount of protein. The key factor behind this diet is to help your body burn fat for energy as a substitute of burning carbohydrates. The Banting Diet generally comprises of 3 meals and 1 snack.

I have taken the opportunity of creating a healthy, yet scrumptious 7 day Banting diet plan that you can incorporate in your Banting way of life.

If you have difficulties with losing weight on this diet, you should cut down on your dairy consumption or eliminate it completely from your diet. Dairy products are excellent for those who want to follow the Banting Diet, but if you are lactose intolerant it can stop you from losing weight.

To sum up, the best part about Banting is that it is an lifestyle instead of just a “diet”. While being on the Banting diet you are allowed to eat tasty high fat meals which beats eating like a rabbit in my book any day. With a bit of planning and will power, the Banting Diet will give you the weight loss results you are looking for.

    1. Yes it should. People with PCOS should stay away from sugary and high carb food completely therefore The Banting diet should work wonders,

    1. Protein intake is the biggest concern for Banting Vegetarians. Instead of eating meat on this Banting Diet replace the meat with pulses, legumes, hummus or mixed nuts. Try and be creative 🙂

    1. Yes. Only full cream yogurt. Check the ingredients to make sure no sugar has been added. Full cream Greek yogurt is generally the best option.

  1. You said banting diet includes 3meals and 1snack. What if I’m still full after eating my lunch up to supper time. Do I have to eat the other meal? Is cream and butter ok for lactose intollerant people?

    1. If you’re still full maybe just have a snack at dinner time. If you are lactose intolerant please avoid cream. I believe lactose intolerant people can eat a maximum of 12 grams of lactose without symptoms. Butter contains nearly undetectable levels of lactose so you should be fine eating butter.

    1. Apples fall under the Banting Diet Orange List. They can be consumed but not in unlimited amounts. Legumes and pulses can be consumed however again, not in unlimited amounts. Tim Nokes has said and I quote “Legumes and pulses are fine if you have normal insulin sensitivity.”

    1. The only bread allowed is “Banting” Labeled bread. I found some amazing bread in Checkers by the pre cooked meals section which tastes AMAZING!

        1. Not necessarily. Although some do. The best one I have found is called “Low Carb White bread by Fresh confectionery.” This bread is very high in protein.

    1. Fruit is allowed on The Banting diet, however it falls under the orange list which I will cover in another article. The orange list covers foods you need to be cautious of. Only eat around 1 to 2 per day.

    1. This should be fine. However make sure you check with your Dr to be sure you’re getting all your nutrients and vitamins!
