People like keto meal plans because food tracking is optional. Dr. Josh Axe, D.N.M., C.N.S., D.C., founder of DrAxe.com, best-selling author of Eat Dirt, and cofounder of Ancient Nutrition, says there's no need to track calories on the ketogenic diet.

Some people may find calorie counting a useful tool to be more mindful and aware of what they're eating, but it's not necessary on the ketogenic diet," says Dr. Axe

"For the first one to two weeks, temporarily reducing your exercise load can be helpful as your body adjusts to being in ketosis," he says.

While it will probably take a little bit of trial and error to figure out your go-to meals while doing keto, here's a sample keto meal plan to get you started.

Breakfast 1: Spinach, mushroom, feta omelette with keto coffee (coffee with adding fat such as MCT oil, butter, or bone broth protein). This breakfast's protein and healthy fats will stop midmorning cravings, says Dr. Axe.

Lunch Oven-baked salmon with broccoli. "This lunch features salmon, which is high in heart-healthy fats, as well as broccoli, which is low in carbs but high in fiber," says Dr. Axe.

Dinner Caesar salad with romaine lettuce, chicken breast, bacon, and Parmesan. "Rich in protein and super filling, this is the perfect meal to round out your day," says Dr. Axe.

Snacks BLT roll-ups with turkey and avocado. "Create a roll using bacon, lettuce, tomato, turkey, and avocado for the perfect mix of fat and protein," says Dr. Axe
