Banting Diet – 7 Day Banting Meal Plan

If you’re keen on the Banting diet then this 7 Day Banting Meal Plan is just what you need to get started.

It provides you with the perfect way to plan your Banting meals in step with the low-carb Banting diet for a complete week.

Not only are the meals on this Banting diet plan healthy & nutritious, they are also gluten free to help will promote gut health & combat autoimmune diseases.

This 7-day Banting meal plan is very similar to the Paleo way of eating (see Paleo vs low-carb diet) which is essentially a LCHF diet (low-carb, high fat) that is also a strictly gluten free diet.

However, the Banting diet (as endorsed by Tim Noakes), and this Banting meal plan, does not exclude dairy at all whilst the Paleo diet does not allow an form of diary.

Should You Include Dairy In Your Banting Diet Plan?

Banting Diet and Dairy

Tim Noakes Is a Big Supporter Of Dairy But Limit Your Consumption If You’re Lactose Intolerant Or Trying To Lose Weight

Tim Noakes is a big fan of including dairy in his “Banting diet” as long as it’s full cream & from grass fed cows.

There is however a downside, as he mentions in a podcast on Talkfeed regarding dairy & weight gain.

He says that whilst his stance on dairy hasn’t changed, you are advised to reduce your dairy consumption of you are struggling to lose weight.

This came about after an uproar in the South African media after Jonno Proudfoot had changed the “Dairy” status from a “green” listed food to “orange” which means it can be consumed in moderation.

The conclusion we can draw from this is that, according to Tim Noakes, dairy is fine for those on the Banting diet but if you are specifically trying to lose weight you should only consume it in moderation.

Be Careful, It’s Easy To Revert To Your Old Eating Habits

Banting Meal

A Banting Meal that would make Tim Noakes proud. Grilled steak (grass fed), Pumpkin (organic), Spinach (organic), Butter (Unsalted & grass fed)

Whilst this meal plan provides you with an easy way to get started on the low-carb Banting way of eating, it’s really easy to get into a rut by preparing & eating the same meals over & over.

This situation creates boredom & “diet fatigue” which often causes people to revert to unhealthy convenience eating – let’s face it a tempting burger & chips looks far more appealing than chicken & veggies.

The best way to help you avoid slipping back into your old eating habits, is to have a comprehensive diet plan complemented with hundreds of tempting LCHF Banting/Paleo approved meal options & recipes to keep you going for at least a month or two to keep it interesting & exciting.
