Ketogenic PCOS Meal Plan Volume 1

Introduction

With the New Year now upon us, you have made 2015 the year where you will finally seize control over your body by shedding the weight that you have always longed to lose. Congratulations on finally making such a fateful decision, as you are already ahead of the majority that just squirm on the fence, fearing the unknown. Virtually all your fears are paper tigers – when you mess up, it’s not failure – it’s feedback. And when you have a plan to adhere to, it’s much easier to avoid these pitfalls.

With that in mind, this first edition in a series of keto diet meal plans will help you get out of neutral after the 4th day of uninspiring food by supplying you with the shopping lists, day by day menus, and the recipes you need to make it happen.

The following plan for December 2014 will get you off to the races with a bewildering array of food designed to show you that there is more variety to this regimen than endless meals of chicken, a pile of spinach and an uninspiring glass of water.

Don’t be frightened by the sheer volume of food proposed, as it will be offset by the simple carb foods and snacks that you will stop purchasing. This month’s plan was designed to showcase a wide slate of dishes, but fans of a simpler meal regimen can slash out half of the proposed dishes and repeat their favorites, so long as you meet the #1 requirement of the ketogenic diet: consumption of less than 20 grams of net carbs per day.

If this is your first time attempting the keto diet and have no clue how to determine this, stay tuned: we will reveal more about this way of life in the pages that follow. Congrats again on choosing a healthier path through the minefield that is the world of modern food … we’re glad to have you on our team!

How the Keto Diet Works

The keto diet is a very low carb, high fat diet that gets your body to use fat as its primary fuel source instead of carbs.

Here are the aspects that you need to follow, in brief:

  • Consumption of net carbs limited to less than 20 grams per day.
  • Only simple carbs count towards this total. Fiber is not metabolized in the same manner that sugar is. Fiber is subtracted from total carbs to obtain the number of net carbs that a dish contains.
  • As a result, grain-based foods are restricted, as are most fruits. Vegetables, meats, and other foods that are low in simple carbs are allowed.
  • Feel free to eat fatty foods, but emphasize monounsaturated and saturated fats over foods that contain polyunsaturated ones.
  • Adapting to this dietary regimen will have growing pains. Be sure to intake two grams of sodium per day (broth in dishes will remedy this), and consider taking magnesium supplements to alleviate any cramps you may encounter.
  • Drink lots of water. Have a tall glass at every meal, and have a water bottle with you at all times between them.

The Benefits of the Keto Diet

Initially developed as a way to treat those suffering from epilepsy, the keto diet has been found to be desirable among those looking to shed weight, as its biochemical underpinnings train the body to use fat instead of carbohydrates as its primary fuel source.

As a result of this, the formerly impenetrable fat stores that many have struggled to lose over the years are raided by your body to run its everyday functions, often causing dramatic reductions in weight and BMI at rates that don’t seem real … until you try it for yourself.

Another positive benefit of switching to the keto diet is that it reduces or eliminates the nasty symptoms of Polycystic Overian Syndrome (PCOS). Feeding off of excess free insulin in the bloodstream, the negative effects of PCOS plagues the lives of one out of every ten women in the world today.

Excessive free insulin increases the amount of testosterone in the body, which is a hormone that is behind many of the symptoms associated with PCOS (excessive body hair, acne, thinning hair and conception problems).

By adopting the ketogenic diet, those suffering from PCOS will a massive reduction of the amount of free insulin in their body, as the high amounts of carbs that used to trigger such a huge insulin response (and fan the flames of insulin resistance) will no longer in present.

What’s Allowed on the Keto Diet

On the keto diet, what you eat is vitally important. The following foods will keep you below 20 grams per day…

Here is what’s allowed:

  • fatty red meats
  • chicken with the skin left on
  • fish (but be careful of eating too much, as more than a few servings per week will put you at risk for heavy metal contamination)
  • offal (organ meat)
  • eggs
  • seeds & nuts
  • most vegetables, except for potatoes
  • small metered amounts of berries

What’s Banned on the Keto Diet

The keto diet is defined by its exclusion of simple carbs. The following foods are forbidden:

  • bread and other foods with grains (whole grains are very bit as bad as refined grains … don’t be fooled)
  • cereal
  • beans
  • soda (though diet soda is OK, as it is sweetened by aspartame, not sugar)
  • pasta
  • potatoes
  • pizza crust
  • beer
  • cookies
  • bagels
  • candy
  • honey
  • chips derived from grains
  • pretzels
  • popsicles
  • crackers
  • most condiments (High Fructose Corn Syrup [HFCS] is rife in these toppings … beware!)
  • anything else with high amounts of carbs (in general, be very skeptical of anything in the aisles of a supermarket … read labels religiously!)
  • fruit, except for small amounts of berries
  • milk

30 Day Ketogenic PCOS Meal Plan – December 2014

Week By Week, Day By Day

Before we delve deeply into the keto diet and specific targeted eating strategies based on various needs, we will explore the wide variety of dishes that are possible for those committing to this regimen. While this 30 day plan is a tad ambitious (perfect for those that love to experiment in the kitchen), feel free to cut down and simplify the following layout if you are time constrained and less adventurous when it comes to the culinary arts.

So long as you make sure to keep your net carbs under 20 grams per day (thus keeping your body in ketosis), any modifications you make to the below plan will still achieve the end goals of your new ketogenic way of life.

Week 2

After a relatively calorie rich start to the month, this week’s meals are a bit lighter to unlock the fat-busting properties of caloric restriction. If you find yourself hungry between meals, drink some water to keep those pangs at bay. With time, you’ll get used to the lower caloric and carb amounts.

Your grocery bill will be big again this week, as the process of building an extensive pantry filled with the seasonings and keto-friendly alternative cooking supplies that will replace sugar and starch in your cooking regimen continues.

Don’t worry though, as it will all settle down in the coming weeks as the supplies you’ll buy will be largely limited to perishable fresh food. As for the non-perishables, attempt to buy in bulk as much as possible, as this will save you so much money over time!

Week 3

With the non-perishables starting to get stocked in your cupboard, the pace of their addition will begin to slow this week. The exploration of the full range of keto cooking continues this week though, so expect to buy different types of meat and veggies in order to understand all the amazing things you can have while on a ketogenic diet.

One thing of note: while balsamic vinegar is used as a flavoring agent in one of the recipes for this week, it is also high in carbs and can throw off your ketogenic state if you drench your meals in it. While it is possible to enjoy some high carb foods in this regimen, developing the self-discipline to limit your doses it is key going forward…

Week 4

This week, most of the items will be of the perishable variety, though there are still some additions to the pantry that will set up in the months ahead. Coconut flour is one of those key planks, and with flavorings and spices like orange extract and sage, you will be able to successfully emulate the eating experiences you had in your pre-keto life.

Hope you enjoyed your initiation to the world of keto eating, as it will allow you to prepare dishes in the ensuing months with much more ease…!

Let’s Start Cooking…

Everything you need to put together the dishes outlined above can be found below. As you go and gain more confidence in the keto kitchen, feel free to modify ingredients or their amounts, but always, ALWAYS check the labels for total carbs per serving.

Remember, net carbs = total carbs – fiber, and your totals for the day should always fall below 20 grams, lest you risk breaking the ketosis system that you will be painstakingly constructing for yourself over the next several weeks. Happy cooking!
