low-carb weight loss phase

Congrats! You’ve finished your first week, and you’ve decided to continue on the low-carb journey. Now that you’ve reached day eight of your meal plan, you will continue to eat nutrient-dense foods like proteins, healthy fats and non-starchy vegetables with some added flexibility!

ketoThanks to your One-Week Reboot, your body may no longer be looking to use carbs as its main source of fuel. Instead, your body has begun burning fat for energy, which has rebooted your body and has set you up to attain steady weight loss during your weight loss phase.

While still following a low-carb meal plan, we suggest keeping your net carb intake to no more than 50 grams per day during your weight loss phase (net carbs = total carbohydrates minus the fiber and sugar alcohols). Keep this in mind when whipping up your DIY breakfasts, lunches and dinners each week. To make things easy for you (trust us, we know how hectic life can be!), our low-carb meal plan maps out exactly what you should be eating for breakfast, lunch, dinner and everything in between—more on that in a sec!
