Banting Meal Plan

Banting Diet – 7 Day Banting Meal Plan

Banting Diet - 7 Day Banting Meal Plan

The Banting Diet Has a Huge Supporter In the Form Of Prof Tim Noakes Who Credits This Diet For His Weight Loss & the Reversing Of His Diabetes

Do you remember when the Banting diet first made headlines after Tim Noakes  spoke of the amazing health & weight loss benefits he’d got from following a Banting meal plan like this?

Well since then, the Banting diet has made a huge dent in the obese & overweight population by helping masses of people shed their excess weight.

Imagine, just by removing sugar & grains from your diet by sticking to a structured Banting meal plan like this, you could look & feel fantastic.

One of the great benefits of this Banting meal plan, & the Banting diet in general, is that you can still lose weight without restricting your portion sizes as long as you only choose food from the Banting green list.

However, one drawback of the Banting diet is running out of exciting low-carb recipes & meal options, which leaves you vulnerable to choosing processed convenience meals and rapidly regaining the weight lost.

So if you want to enjoy the life changing benefits you’ll get from the Banting diet then this 7 Day Banting Meal Plan is just what you need to get started.

Furthermore, not only are the meals on this Banting diet plan healthy & nutritious, they are also gluten free which helps promote gut health & combat autoimmune diseases.


1. Monday

Banting Diet

Bacon & Eggs For Breakfast Is a Favourite On the Banting Diet

  • Breakfast – 2 poached eggs with a few rashers of bacon & tomato
  • Lunch – A large salad with your favorite protein (chicken, steak, etc.) with some cottage cheese
  • Snack – Apple slices with almond butter
  • Dinner – Slow cooker pulled pork with fresh veggies such as spinach & pumpkin (contains less sugar than butternut) & finished off with a small tub of full cream Greek yoghurt if you’re still hungry.

2. Tuesday

  • Breakfast – A portion of fruit followed by bacon & eggs
  • Lunch – Blanched/sauteed veggies (pre-made and reheated)
  • Snack – Can of tuna
  • Dinner – Steak (grass fed) with some green leafy vegetables, cauliflower & broccoli

Banting Meal Plan

Roast Chicken With Fresh Veggies Provide Great Protein & Nutrition For Evening Meal

  • Breakfast – Coconut milk smoothie or have banana pancakes (makes a change from having eggs everyday although you can have eggs & bacon if you prefer)
  • Lunch – Soup (reheated or in a thermos)
  • Snack – Greek yogurt
  • Dinner – Roast chicken (or BBQ free range chicken which you can get from Woolworths for your convenience)  with a Greek salad

4. Thursday

Banting Diet Plan

Fish Is a Popular Banting Food As It Provides Your Body With Those Essential Omega-3 Fatty Acids, Also Good For the Heart

  • Breakfast – Mixed nuts & berries with coconut milk followed by a bowl of Greek yogurt
  • Lunch – BLT wrap with lettuce instead of bread wrap
  • Snack – Hard boiled eggs
  • Dinner – Grilled fish with spinach & pumpkin

5. Friday

  • Breakfast – Steak and eggs

6. Saturday

  • Breakfast – Eggs and sweet potato hash browns
  • Lunch – Sandwich with bell pepper slices instead of bread
  • Snack – Biltong (Jerky) & almonds (not too many if you’re looking to lose weight)
  • Dinner – Sun dried tomato bacon wrapped meatloaf

7. Sunday

Banting Diet Plan

Beef & Vegetables Is One Of My Favourite Meals

  • Breakfast – Egg/veggie/meat scramble
  • Lunch – Dinner leftovers
  • Snack – Blueberries & almonds
  • Dinner – Beef (or chicken) & vegetable stir fry in olive oil (never use Sunflower oil or any vegetable oil)

Besides the dairy, the Paleo diet is very similar to the Banting & the Tim Noakes LCHF diets which all emphasise low-carb eating to maximise your health benefits, help keep you slim & feel young.

Let’s be honest…If you don’t change your bad eating habits, you’ll never achieve the health & weight loss goals you’ve set yourself.

Many people have trouble getting their brain adapted to not wanting sugar (aka burgers, treats, pizza etc).

Once you’ve become fat adapted by eating LCHF foods, you won’t get the cravings for sugars & comfort foods.

It’s actually not that difficult to do & the great things is, is that the longer you can stick to this LCHF way of eating, the less you’re tempted to eat bad stuff.

What you will need, is a trusted source of exciting LCHF recipes which you’ll look forward to eating at every meal time…

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.


You know what the worst thing is about running out of interesting meal ideas and exciting recipes?

You get bored and revert to convenience food that looks much more exciting & appealing than another plate of cauliflower.

I don’t have to tell you that going down that road is a downward spiral to weight gain and obesity.

It’s therefore very important to keep mealtimes interesting & exciting and something to look forward to.

By having a wide range of low-carb recipes available to prepare a variety of tasty dishes, you’ll be able to avoid having your healthy eating plan unravel. So don’t sabotage your diet by not having enough mouthwatering recipes available at all times.

PS. Whilst This Banting Meal Plan Is a Good Start To Developing a Healthy Eating Habit…

You Must Be Careful Of Spoiling It By Running Out Of Exciting Recipes…

      • PaleoGuy says:

        Hi Anne

        Whilst the Paleo & Banting diets are very similar, one of the main differences is that Paleo does not allow dairy whilst Banting/Tim Noakes does.

        For a more comprehensive report on how the Paleo vs Banting diets compare, please go to this link;

        These diets have often been recommended for diabetics & many have been able to completely reverse their diabetes just by sticking to Paleo or Banting.

        Have a look at this report where “Results from the clinical trial is proof that a low-carb diabetic diet can reverse diabetes” at this link;

    why eating so much fat? aren’t we gonna gain more kilos?

    • PaleoGuy says:

      Hi Malose

      The thought of eating fat to lose weight & improve your health is completely foreign to many of us, however you can’t really eat too much fat as it reduces hunger & eliminates cravings that you get with eating sugary foods.
      Sources of good fats include, avacados, coconut oil, nuts, pecan nuts (not peanuts or cashews as they’re legumes), organic butter, fatty cuts of meat and so on.

      For more healthy food choice have a look at Tim Noakes green list of foods at the following link;

    I dont eat pork, so what can i replace it with?

    • PaleoGuy says:

      Hi Khathu

      Bacon can be replaced with chicken rashers which taste & look similar.

      Pork can be replaced with lamb, chicken, beef, turkey etc.

  21. sooraya says:

    Hi what can I substitute beacon for (something) Halaal for Muslims please

    • PaleoGuy says:

      Hi Sooraya

      Chicken rashers are an excellent substitute for bacon – without knowing which one you’re eating it’s hard to tell the difference as they look & taste very similar.

      You can fry them in a pan as one would do with bacon.

      Also remember that free-range chicken is always best

      Goeie dag Paleo,

      Wat kan ek in die plek van eiers eet.

      Baie Dankie

      • PaleoGuy says:

        Hi Belinda

        Just as a suggestion you could always replace eggs for breakfast by frying up some ham & vegetables or bacon with spinach & mushrooms or smoked salmon or chicken nuggets (not the fast food type) but I can’t give you a specific egg substitute that would be Banting friendly although there are other nutritious foods that you can eat in place off eggs.

  25. CHARITY says:

    I am very new in Banting, infact I heard about it only yesterday . Am ready to get started

  26. FM says:

    I am allergic to eggs and I hate avocado. I see a lot of food choices include both so I am at a loss as what to replace it with, mainly for lunch at work and breakfasts.

  27. Naomi Ngoma says:

    why are legumes such as pesnuts and cahews not allowed for this eating plan

    • PaleoGuy says:

      Legumes are not great for us humans even though they’re often associated with “healthy” foods (like lentils & hummus) & soy products.

      Firstly they contain phytic acid which is an anti-nutrient, it inhibits the absorption of minerals & vitamins.

      Legumes are also FODMAPS which means they contain a carbohydrate called galaco-ligosaccharides which can cause digestive problems, especially for those suffering with IBS or similar digestive problems.

      Legumes are also high in toxic lectins which damage the intestinal wall, contributing to leaky gut syndrome, causing associated digestive and autoimmune problems.

  28. Naomi Ngoma says:

    why are legumes such as peanuts and cashews not allowed for this eating plan

    • PaleoGuy says:

      Hi Naomi

      Briefly, legumes are carbs (as well as a high source of calories) that don’t have much nutritional benefit & cause weight gain as well as not being very good for – they also contain high amounts of phytic acid which binds to the (essential) nutrients in the food, preventing your body from absorbing them & can also cause unpleasant digestive problems.

  29. I am insulin resistant not as yet diabetic, have had a spine operation some 10 years ago and am overweight. Have been on some diets but am experiencing very little success, i need desperately to reduce my weight to take off the strain from my back/spine.
    I am unable to exercise to assist my weight loss, however I do some walking and am swimming.
    In summer these exercises have helped, however in winter is when all the problems start, will this diet assist me.
    thank you Saren

    • PaleoGuy says:


      I recommend you consult with your medical practitioner or qualified nutritionist prior to embarking on any eating plan that could affect your health.

      However, it should be noted that Prof Tim Noakes is a massive fan of the Banting low-carb way of eating purely because it helped not only lose excess weight, but has helped him control his type-2 diabetes (if not reverse it).

      He is very outspoken on the subject of eating a low-carb, high fat diet in preference to the so called “healthy” high carb, low-fat diet which the AHA would have the population believe is the right way to eat & which has largely been to blame for the global rise in obesity.

      On the subject of exercise, moderate exercise would normally be good for anyone but again, it would be best to consult with your doctor first.

      And, remember that eating the right diet will probably do more for your weight & health issues than an exercise regime – you can’t outrun a bad diet…

      If you do just one thing – eliminate all types of sugar from your diet, it’s sure to benefit you.

      The link below will provide you with more info on the Banting diet & a 7 day meal Plan;

      Hope this helps & good luck with losing that weight & feeling better.

  34. Petronella Junius says:

    Do I have to weigh all my food?, while I’m on this diet?

    • PaleoGuy says:

      Hi Petronella

      No, weighing your food to lose weight is a myth & not an effective nutritional weight loss method at all.

      What is better for you? 1kg of broccoli or 1kg of white bread?

      They both weigh the same but the bread is by far the more unhealthy choice, so it’s more about eating real wholesome food than eating sugary, processed foods.

      By eating real foods your hunger will be satisfied & your intake will be naturally regulated.

      You should therefore lose weight naturally & experience improved health as well.

      • Inz says:

        Hi, my wife has lost 7kg in 1 week. She cut out all dairy products. Cut out her sugar intake. High protein diet and did zumba regularly.

        My wife denise is so excited. He sister inlaw prinzy is going to be so jealous.

        • Elna says:

          Do you eat any nuts?
          Coffee and tea all black?

          • PaleoGuy says:

            Nuts, such as almonds, hazelnuts & walnuts are fine in moderation, but not too many if you’re watching your weight.

            Full cream milk in tea & coffee is also good unless you’re lactose intolerant of course

    • PaleoGuy says:

      Hello Leon, it really depends on each individual but if you’re trying to lose weight go easy on the dairy as it does contribute to weight gain as does fruit as it’s high in sugar.

      Always best to get expert advice from your dietician or medical practitioner for your personal circumstances

  43. Angie says:

    What is the suggested weight loss on this 7 day plan?

    • PaleoGuy says:

      Hi Angie

      Everyone is different & therefore will respond differently to certain eating plans which makes it almost impossible to estimate how much weight one could or would lose.

      Furthermore the amount of weight you need to lose would also depend on your current health/weight etc & it is always advisable to get a professional assessment done by a dietician or medical practitioner.

      Generally speaking though, eating a healthy Banting or Paleo diet, for example, should allow you to eat until you’re full without having to count calories & your weight should be managed without much fuss.

      I’m not qualified to offer specific advice for your situation although exercise isn’t as important as eating correctly in order to lose weight & keep healthy.

      I therefore recommend that you consult a registered dietician or nutritionist for professional advice.

      Also remember that it’s what you eat & not how many calories you consume that is important – read more about the calorie debate as to how many calories men & women should be eating per day

    We have been following this way of eating for about a year. Husband lost a lot of weight – about 17 kg. I feel great, but not really losing any weight. I trained for a marathon and completed it successfully, but I actually picked up about 5kg. Any ideas? I drink a smoothie for breakfast (protein / 5 strawbs / 0.5 banana / almond butter / coconut oil / almond milk / linseed) We have packed lunch for work (cold meats / cheese / tomatoes / almonds / banting bread with butter (occasionally)). Dinner consists of protein (usually chicken or pork) and vegetables and/or salad. We eat high % chocolate (above 70%) / use cream in coffee and I sometimes make dessert – using a banting recipe book. Do I need to cut dairy? Please help. I lost weight long ago with Weight Watchers 16st changed to 11st, but I am now back over 12st and it seems to be creeping up…

    • PaleoGuy says:

      Hi Elna

      Dairy is always something to consider eliminating from your diet if you’re worried about weight gain or are lactose intolerant.

      As a matter of interest dairy is NOT allowed approved on the Paleo diet for these 5 reasons (

      However I would consult a registered dietician to get expert advice on how to tweak your eating plan to curb your weight gain.

    hi Paleo
    thanks for the 7day m,eal plan…is it possible to loose weight while am not exercising mean while am eating healthy and clean and how long will it take to loose weight?

    • PaleoGuy says:

      Yes Deborah, it certainly is possible to lose weight without exercising.

      In fact the food you eat will have a far bigger impact on your weight than the amount you exercise – you can’t outrun a bad diet.

      If you stick to eating only real, nutrient dense foods found on the Paleo food list or Banting green list you should start noticing an improvement in your weight fairly soon but it varies from person to person.

    I am 53 years old and diabetic and I must loose at least 30 kilos.I am in urgent need of a banting diet plan to help me shed the extra weight.

    • PaleoGuy says:

      Hi Lantis

      Low-carb diets have worked well for many diabetics, not least of all Tim Noakes who is a great supporter of the Banting diet, however for a specific eating plan for you I would suggest consulting with your medical practioner to ensure you get one that is specific to your body.

    I started the banting, I put full cream milk in my coffee and i want to lose weight,should I not use milk for now till i lose the weight?

    • PaleoGuy says:

      Hi Akutu

      Whilst dairy (full cream) is Banting approved, it can contribute to weight gain so it would be better to cut the dairy out for now.

      Also, don’t be tempted to go for the low-fat or fat-free options as those are generally full of sugar & other nasty things which definitely to be avoided.

  79. Brenda van der Merwe says:

    Hello can I do the banting diet with high cholesterol, if not is there a banting diet that I can follow.

    • PaleoGuy says:

      Hi Brenda

      While it’s always advisable to check with your doctor before embarking on a new eating plan, the Banting diet should help with your high cholesterol.

      For instance using vegetable oils (not Banting approved) for cooking would contribute to high cholesterol & inflammation, while olive oil is perfectly ok.

    Hi,if you dont eat bacon or pork what should be a substitute?

    • PaleoGuy says:

      Hi Eddie, chicken is the most popular pork substitute and chicken rashers, which can be fried, are great bacon rasher substitutes.

  82. tendai says:


    Im starting the banting diet, is knorr cup-a-soup a no no for the diet?

    • PaleoGuy says:

      Hi Tendai

      I can’t say for sure but I suspect it has preservatives, flavourants & other “bad” stuff in it.

      So, in my opinion I would stay clear of any instant soups & rather make your own with natural, real foods

  84. Annelize says:

    I did the banting diet 100% for 2 weeks. No weight loss. Is this normal

    • PaleoGuy says:

      Hi Annelize

      It could be normal for you as not everyone is the same & therefore reacts differently to various ways of eating.

      The amount of weight you lose in a specific time frame could also depend on how much you weigh & what your BMI is, so with so many variables it is difficult to say whether it is normal.

      I’m sure if you persevere you’ll realise the weight loss results you want as many have had huge success with this LCHF way of eating.

      However, if you’re worried I suggest you consult a medical practioner or a registered dietician to get a qualified opinion.

      Hope this helps

      All the best
