I’m having one of those crazy busy weeks: between work and extracurricular activities, I barely have time to hit the gym in the morning. There’s definitely no time to meal plan this week! It would be the perfect week to pick up take-out every day instead of following my diet plan, but that’s not very healthy! I know there are plenty of keto-friendly fast food items on the menu, I’d rather not give up just yet. Instead, this week is perfect for a 7-Day Lazy Keto Meal Plan. This plan doesn’t track–or limit–calories, but it does keep you under 20 grams of carbs every day to stay in ketosis.

This plan is great for anyone who lives a busy lifestyle but still wants to follow the keto diet. It’s also a fantastic way to get started with keto if you’re a beginner because it will kick-start your body into ketosis. With the lazy keto meal plan, simply choose a few breakfasts, lunches, dinners, and optional snacks each day. Things are even easier if you make enough dinner to have leftovers for lunch–the lazier, the better!

When you’re piecing together your daily meals, make sure the totals add up to fewer than 20 carbs. We’ve provided each recipe’s carbohydrate count for easy reference.

How to use this meal plan: Choose a few breakfasts, lunches, dinners, and snacks each day. Don’t worry about counting calories at all; just keep your total daily carbs under 20 grams each day. That will keep you in ketosis, even if you’re not paying attention to any other macronutrients. If you want to save extra time, skip the lunch recipes and double up your dinner recipes. Enjoy the leftovers for lunch! Similarly, you can make a large batch of the breakfast recipes and eat them a few days in a row.

Most of these recipes are naturally keto-friendly, but if any of them contain prohibited foods (like honey or breadcrumbs), feel free to make some ingredient swaps! If you have any questions about how to make ingredient substitutions, we’d be happy to answer them in the comments below.

  1. Thank you for the meal plan! I need to lose about 40 lbs & have been trying figure out the easiest plan & how to go about it. I know losing weight is hard, as I’ve already lost 25 lbs. I’m just bored with my current plan. Thanks for making this plan & decision easy to follow.
