Intermittent Fasting For Beginners – A Guide to 16/8 Intermittent Fasting diet with tips and tricks to make it easy to adapt to a fasting lifestyle.

Intermittent Fasting For Beginners

Before I share my Intermittent Fasting For Beginners Tips, let me first share my own personal experience with intermittent fasting. When I first stumbled on Intermittent Fasting a couple of years ago, my immediate reaction was – that is NOT for me. There’s NO way I’d be able to fast for 14 or 16 hours a day. I love my food and I’m hungry too much. I’d be miserable and what’s the point?!

Fast forward a year or so and I’d followed the Keto Diet for about 9 months, decided to transition off, but didn’t want to put the weight back on. At that point, I’d remembered Intermittent Fasting and thought I’d look into it. As a way of maintaining my weight loss.

So, I experimented with different ways of intermittent fasting. It took a couple of weeks of trying different intermittent fasting routines to find what worked for me. That was around August 2017. Once I found my groove, I stuck to it and have pretty much been intermittent fasting everyday since then. (With the exception of the odd day here and then when travelling or for family celebrations.)

Why Start Intermittent Fasting?

This is a big question to ask yourself. Why do you want to intermittent fast? Think long and hard about your “why”. Without a strong why, you won’t have the motivation to begin properly and continue with this way of life.

As I mentioned, I started to prevent myself from gaining back my Keto Diet weight loss. Eating 2 meals a day rather than 3 just naturally reduces your calorie intake. I also find it easier to plan for 2 rather than 3 meals a day. (And save money too!)

How Do You Intermittent Fast?

There are a number of ways to follow an Intermittent Fasting routine. My tip would be to experiment with the different options and find what works for you and your lifestyle. You could fast for 14, 16, 18 or even 20 hours and then have an “eating window” of the rest of the day.

My routine is a 16/8 intermittent fast. So, I eat between the hours of 8am and 4pm and then fast from 4pm to 8am the following morning. Skipping dinner works wonders for me.

Others prefer to skip breakfast and start their eating window at around lunch time. I tried that but just got to hungry/angry/hangry.

If you’ve never done a longer fast before, then consider easing into it. Start by fasting for 12 hours – so finish eating at 7pm and then have breakfast at 7am the next day. Then slowly push your fasting time to 14, 16 and then 18 hours if you want to.

This is where being intuitive and really listening to your body is important. If you find that you’re absolutely starving, then EAT! There is always tomorrow. You don’t HAVE to follow intermittent fasting everyday. Some do it a few times a week, other everyday.

What Do You Eat While Intermittent Fasting?

During your fasting window, only have water. Some have bulletproof coffee, black coffee or tea. I prefer to just have water while fasting. Be easy on yourself though, if you NEED that cup of coffee in the morning while adapting then go for it.

You can always take it out in a few weeks when you’re used to the intermittent fasting way of life.

As far as your day to day meals go, aim for whole foods and a balanced diet. Sometimes I follow a Keto Diet way of eating, others not. (Click here for Intermittent Fasting Keto Meal examples.)

What Are The Benefits Of Intermittent Fasting?

If you’re really serious about beginning intermittent fasting, then my suggestion is to do some research into the scientific benefits of intermittent fasting. I found tons of inspiration and Intermittent Fasting advice in the book The 2 Meal Day. (Get it here.) There’s all the science you need to know about Intermittent Fasting, plus loads of recipes and meal ideas.

Personally, I find that I have more energy, that I feel comfortable when I go to sleep at night – rather than still full and uncomfortable from dinner and evening snacks. I like that I give my body a good period everyday to rest and digest – rather than feeding it for every waking hour.

To me, intermittent fasting is a way of life, not a diet. I love the way of feel after a 16 hour fast and will be continuing this way of life for the foreseeable future.

Keto Tuna and Egg Salad Recipe – Easy Low Carb High Protein Lunch Ideas – Simple to prepare with tuna, hard boiled eggs and just a few more Ketogenic Diet friendly ingredients.

Keto Tuna and Egg Salad Recipe

I’ve long been a fan of tuna salad and egg salad. So, it was only a matter of time before the two combined into one super salad recipe – a Keto Tuna and Egg Salad.

The flavours work so incredibly well together, making a wonderous low carb and high protein dish. Perfect for when you really need to meet your protein macros but you just don’t know how.

How To Make Tuna and Egg Salad

Start by hard boiling some eggs. I prepare mine by covering some eggs with water in a small saucepan. Bringing them up to the boil, simmering for 10 minutes and then remove from the heat. Cool completely and you have the perfect hard boiled eggs.

Once you have your hard boiled eggs, peel a few (I used 4) and slice them up. An egg slicer makes this task really easy.

Place the eggs into a bowl, along with your tuna. I used a small tin of tuna. It’s up to you how you want your egg to tuna ratio to be and how many serves you’ll be making, whether you use a half or a whole small or large tin of tuna.

Chop the eggs and tuna together to form a chopped salad.

Top with the mayo and sour cream. I used 2 tablespoons of each, but you may want to use more or less depending on how big of a salad you’re making and how creamy you want it.

Combine together and then add your seasoning of choice. I went for salt and paprika, but you could also add pepper, mustard powder or any seasoning you like.

Give it a final stir through and refrigerate for a few hours for the flavours to develop. Enjoy as a salad or in lettuce cups or as a topping for a big green salad.

Keto Tuna and Egg Salad Recipe
  • 4 Hard Boiled Eggs
  • Small tin of Tuna
  • 2 Tablespoons Sour Cream
  • 2 Tablespoons Mayonnaise
  • Salt, Paprika or your seasoning of choice
  1. Peel and slice the hard boiled eggs and place them into a bowl.
  2. Add the tuna and chop to combine.
  3. Add the sour cream, mayo and seasoning.
  4. Stir through until creamy.
  5. Place into the fridge for a couple of hours and enjoy.

Low Carb Chocolate Pudding Recipe – An Easy Keto Chocolate Pudding Dessert with heavy cream and chocolate.

Low Carb Chocolate Pudding Recipe

Recently we enjoyed a trip to Amsterdam, where I tried all kinds of delicious Dutch treats. One of my finds was VLA – a pudding which comes in all kinds of interesting flavours. My favourite was of course – chocolate.

So, when I returned home, I wanted to try and create a low carb version of the dessert. The resulting low carb chocolate pudding is thick and rich and chocolatey and one I’ve been making regularly since I got the recipe just right.

Feel free to use whatever milk, cream and sweetener you have to hand. I’ve also experimented with adding a half a teaspoon of cinnamon, which gives an even thicker pudding, but you can definitely taste the cinnamon – so only add if you’re happy with a cinnamon tasting chocolate pudding.

Low Carb Chocolate Pudding Recipe
  • 1 Cup Milk
  • 1/2 Cup Cream
  • 2 Tablespoons Stevia
  • 1 Tablespoon Cocoa Powder
  • 2 Eggs
  • 50g/2 ounces Unsalted Butter, chopped
  • 50g/2 ounces 85%+ Dark Chocolate, chopped
  1. Pour the milk and cream into a small saucepan.
  2. Place over low heat and warm until heated but not simmering yet.
  3. In a bowl, combine together the stevia, cocoa powder and eggs.
  4. Whisk the heated milk into the eggs mixture.
  5. Add the butter and chocolate into the whisked cream and eggs mixture.
  6. Whisk to combine.
  7. Clean out the small saucepan and return the chocolate pudding mixture into the saucepan.
  8. Place back over low heat and gently bring up to a simmer, whisking continuously until the chocolate pudding has thickened.
  9. Remove from heat and have warm or cool completely, store in the fridge and enjoy chilled.

  • Strawberries
  • Lemon or Lime and Stevia
  • Cinnamon and Stevia
  • Lemon Curd
  • Low Carb Ice Cream
  • Whipped Cream
  • Raspberries
  • Yoghurt
  • Butter
  • Coconut
  • Nuts or Nut Butter

  • 1/4 Cup Cream
  • Pinch of Salt
  • 1 Cup Almond Flour or Almond Meal
  1. In a bowl, whisk together the eggs until smooth.
  2. Whisk in the cream.
  3. Add the salt and almond flour or meal and whisk until you have a smooth, bubbling waffle batter.
  4. Heat your waffle maker and cook the waffles according to the directions on your waffle maker.

Keto Steak Salad Recipe – An Easy Low Carb Steak Salad with homemade Blue Cheese Salad Dressing.

Keto Steak Salad Recipe

This keto steak salad recipe is really easy to put together. It involves a few simple steps, and a bit of waiting inbetween to allow the flavours to develop. But, it’s totally worth the end dish of beauty.

I always like to try and eat a rainbow of vegetables wherever possible and this salad is the perfect way to do just that. You can mix and match a rainbow of vegetables to suit your tastes and macros.

The dressing makes a large volume, probably more than you’ll need for this recipe. But, I always like to have extra so we can top up at the table. And, the dressing is one of my favourite Keto Salad Dressings. So, whatever you don’t use, you can enjoy as a salad dressing over the next couple of days.

Keto Steak Salad Recipe with Blue Cheese Dressing
  • 1/2 Cup Sour Cream
  • 1/2 Cup Cream
  • Salt & Pepper, to taste
  • 2 teaspoons Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1/3 Cup Crumbled Blue Cheese
  • 2 Steaks – I like using Striploin/Sirloin/Porterhouse
  • Butter or Coconut Oil, For Frying
  • Spinach
  • Tomatoes, chopped
  • Pepper, sliced
  1. To make the blue cheese dressing, whisk together the sour cream, cream, salt, pepper and apple cider vinegar together in a bowl.
  2. Whisk in the crumbled blue cheese.
  3. Place into the fridge for a couple of hours for the flavours to develop.
  4. When you’re ready to cook your steaks, remove them from the fridge, add salt and pepper to taste and allow to come up to room temperature for 10 to 15 minutes.
  5. Heat butter or coconut oil in a frying pan and, when hot, add the salted steaks.
  6. Cook until done to your liking. Approximately 5 minutes a side for medium, with less or more time depending on how you like your steak cooked.
  7. Remove the steak to a plate to rest.
  8. To put the salads together, place a bed of spinach on a plate.
  9. Top with slices tomatoes and peppers.
  10. Once the steak has rested and cooled, slice into strips.
  11. Place the salad strips on top of the prepared salad and drizzle over the blue cheese dressing.

This recipe serves two as a whole meal. You could easily serve this as a side with a main meal or half it for one.

7 No Cook Low Carb Meals – Ideas and Recipes for Easy Keto Diet Dinners and meals that require no cooking. Perfect for summer or quick meals.

7 No Cook Low Carb Meals

As the weather warms up, the desire to cook hot meals for dinner tends to vanish. Especially on days where you just don’t want to heat up the kitchen and stand over a hot pan.

Some of these meals can be prepared in an instant. Others, you can prepare ahead when the weather is cooler and have your fridge stocked and ready with meals for days.

1. Broccoli Salad

I’ve been making this at least once a week lately. It’s so easy to put together. Requires no cooking and is the perfect keto meal. Click here for the recipe.

2. Deviled Eggs

I like to hard boil eggs whenever I’m home and the weather is cooler. Sometimes early in the morning before the heat of the day begins. I keep a bowl full of hard boiled eggs and grab a couple for deviled eggs when I need a quick meal. (Click here for a 2 ingredient deviled eggs recipe.)

You can turn this simple snack into a meal with a big green salad and maybe some keto salad dressing too. (I love this blue cheese dressing.)

3. Meat and Cheese Platter

Recently while I was travelling and in Amsterdam, I put together the above meat and cheese platters. I visited a local supermarket and chose a variety of cheese and smoked meat/salami options. I also added some chopped vegetables and strawberries.

It was then simply a matter of chopping and plating up a delicious plate full for one of the easiest no cook low carb meals.

4. Tuna Salad

I could enjoy a tuna salad every day and never get bored. My favourite combination is spinach, a small tin of tuna, avocado, sour cream and/or mayo. It’s just such a perfectly balanced meal and can be easily adpated depending on what you have available in your fridge and your mood.

5. Avocado and Feta Salad

This is my other go to salad of choice – a simple, yet satisfying, combination of spinach, cucumber, feta and avocado. If you haven’t yet tried this combination then you’re in for a treat. The flavours and textures work together perfectly.

6. Lettuce Wraps

A lettuce cup make and excellent wrap to hold your favourite sandwich fillings. You could fill a lettuce cup with your tuna salad, mentioned above, or leftover roast chicken and mayo. (As pictured above.)

7. Breakfast For Dinner

Ordinarily I could enjoy breakfast for any meal of the day. When it comes to Summer and quick meals, I often turn to no cook breakfast meals like Chia Pudding or Smoothies.

I’ll often prepare a chia pudding in the morning (here’s how) and then when I get home I have a nourishing meal waiting for me. Or, you could create a smoothie (like this one) that constitutes a meal – include plenty of healthy fats and protein powder for yet another one of the easiest no cook low carb meals.

I hope you’ve found inspiration and new no cook low carb meals to enjoy. As you can see, there are tons of easy keto friendly meals that require little to cooking for when it’s too hot or there’s just no time to prepare dinner.

Meat Free Keto Diet – Tips and Meal Plan Ideas and Recipes for Low Carb & Ketogenic Diet friendly vegetarian breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks.

Meat Free Keto Diet

Through my 18+ months on the Keto Diet, I’ve enjoyed a LOT of Meat Free Meals. In particular, I tend to follow Meat Free Mondays most weeks to try and balance out my week.

Through that time, I’ve acquired a number of favourite meals and methods for making it easy to follow a meat free keto diet. Which I will share with you today.

Start With Healthy Fats

A Ketogenic Diet is typically made up of a majority of healthy fats. Here’s a list of healthy fats to include in your Meat Free Keto Diet.

  • Butter
  • Coconut Oil
  • MCT Oil
  • Avocado Oil
  • Avocado
  • Olive Oil
  • Eggs
  • Nuts
  • Full Fat Dairy – cream, sour cream, cheese, mascarpone
How To Get Enough Protein On A Meat Free Keto Diet

It’s really important to track to make sure you’re consuming sufficient protein, when you follow a Meat Free Keto Diet. I’ve written a separate blog post going in depth into 5 ways to increase your protein intake. (Read it here.)

But briefly – eggs, dairy, nut and seeds will form a crucial part of your diet. As will protein powder. Try and find the lowest carb protein powder, also free from as many additional chemicals, additives and artificial ingredients as possible. (I like this one.)

List of Keto Friendly Vegetables (And Fruit)

Eat a rainbow of vegetables, but be mindful of your daily carb allowance. And yes, you can have small amounts of fruit, but that’s limited to berries, lemon, avocado and tomatoes.

Here’s a list of vegetables to enjoy:

    • Spinach
    • Kale
    • Mushrooms
    • Cauliflower
    • Broccoli
    • Radishes
    • Brussels Sprouts
    • Green Beans
    • Asparagus
    • Avocado
    • Cucumber
    • Lettuce
    • Cabbage
    • Zucchini
    • Celery
    • Artichoke
Example Days Of Keto Vegetarian Meals

Here’s a playlist of What I Eat In A Day when I’m having Meat Free Keto Meals. Hit play below or click here to watch the playlist on YouTube.

Meat Free Keto Breakfast Ideas

Breakfast for me is usually eggs of some description with a serve or two of vegetables from the list above. There are so many varieties including fried, scrambled or an omelette with any combination of vegetables.

Make sure to include a healthy serve of fats or two by cooking in butter or coconut oil and then serving with avocado or sour cream on the side.

Meat Free Keto Meals

The following meals would make a great lunch, dinner or even a smaller portion could be enjoyed as a snack. I tend to intermittent fast so my lunch and dinner combine together into one second meal of the day.

Broccoli Salad

My go to veggie meal lately has been broccoli salad. (Get the recipe here.) There are only 5 ingredient (or 4 if you exclude salt), it’s easy to throw together and fills me for hours.

Pizza Stuffed Mushrooms

Using a mushroom base as a pizza and then topping it with your favourite pizza toppings makes a delicious Meat Free Keto Meal.

Broccoli Casserole

I’ve probably made this Cheesy Broccoli Casserole more than any other recipe on my blog. (Get the recipe here.) Veggie day or not, this dish is a cheesy comfort meal and I make it at least every other week.

Baked Brie

Any excuse to consume a wheel of cheese and I’m in! (Ok, full disclosure – I shared the wheel of cheese with my Husband, but I reckon I could take it on my own too!) This is such a flavourful way to enjoy brie and makes a great appetiser for a crowd. (Get the recipe here.)

3 Ingredient Chocolate Mousse Recipe – Easy Low Carb & Keto Diet Friendly Desserts – This eggless chocolate mousse is simple to prepare and has loads of indulgent variations.

3 Ingredient Chocolate Mousse Recipe

I can’t seem to stop experimenting with different chocolate mousse variations. On this blog I’ve shared low carb Mascarpone and Indulgent chocolate mousse recipes. (And even one with Irish Cream!)

Today I’m sharing a version with just 3 ingredients, including loads of variations. For the cream, use whatever cream you can whip into thick, stiff whipped cream – that may be called double, heavy or whipping cream, depending where you are in the world.

For the chocolate, if you’re following the low carb keto diet then go for 85% plus dark chocolate or the lowest carb chocolate you can find. Otherwise, use whatever chocolate you have to hand or like to enjoy in desserts.

Regarding the 3rd ingredient – this is where you get to decide on the flavour of your chocolate mousse. If you simply want a little sweetness then add stevia or your sweetener of choice.

If you want other flavours then you can get creative with vanilla, mint extract, orange or lemon zest or really whatever flavouring you want.

I encourage you to experiment and come up with a chocolate mousse that you and your family will adore.

3 Ingredient Chocolate Mousse Recipe
  • 100g/3.5 ounces Chocolate
  • 1 Cup + 2 Tablespoons Whipping Cream
  • Flavour – choose from Stevia, Vanilla, Mint Extract, Orange or Lemon Zest
  1. Break the chocolate up into small pieces.
  2. Place into a small saucepan, along with the 2 tablespoons of cream.
  3. Place over a low heat and melt slowly, stirring continuously.
  4. Once melted, add the flavouring and stir through to dissolve.
  5. Set aside to cool.
  6. Pour the cream into a large bowl.
  7. Whisk until you have whipped cream.
  8. Gently fold the melted chocolate into the whipped cream until you have a smooth chocolate mousse.
  9. Taste to be sure it’s sweet and flavourful enough for you, adding more stevia or flavouring as necessary.
  10. Place into the fridge for a couple of hours to thicken and then enjoy.
