For The Love Of Banting: The ULTIMATE Bargain Banting Challenge

The ULTIMATE Bargain Banting Challenge

THE ULTIMATE BARGAIN BANTING CHALLENGE



CHALLENGE STARTS on
12th June and Will Run until 25th June.

With the rising food costs and general cost of living we always hear how "expensive" banting is - but it really doesn't have to be. It's as expensive or as cheap as you want it to be!

They're all pretty basic meals - nothing too left field.

Don't forget to click on respective recipes where applicable to see what you're making! (the recipes are underlined/a different colour)

If you're having any issues on your mobile device, go to the top right menu, click on it, then go to "open with" and choose a browser available on your mobile device. The built in Facebook browser often doesn't work as well and allow you to enlarge pictures.

If you're using the Carb Wise app - which ideally you should be to optimize weightloss - fill the meals into the app - you may need to tweak your meals to include more or less food - depending.

To download this app, please follow the links below:

To get your ratio, you need to download the CARB WISE APP here for Android devices or here for Apple Devices.

RULES:

1. NEVER Red list. Orange list is occasional so see how that fits into YOUR banting journey and your budget.
2. Have a look at our Banting Info links - there is a wealth of information there regarding various "side effects" of banting.
3. Read the Beginners Guide to Banting which can only be found in Banting 7 Day Meal Plans
4. Ask as many questions as you possibly can after reading the Beginners guide. We want you to understand Banting, and as much about it as possible.
5. Stick as much to the plan as possible, you can substitute one fat out for another - as in Butter for Holsum - but this WILL affect the costs per meal. You can also add more food or swap out proteins etc - but remember, this too will affect the cost of this plan
6. ENJOY IT and EMBRACE IT. This will become your new favourite thing! You will LOVE how you feel.
7. Write down a short note - 5 pointers on there as to WHY you want to Bant/Get Healthy/Lose Weight, what motivates you to do it be it health or weight - and keep it with it you. I promise it helps.
8. Last but not least, Save the below Budget Tips List to help you SAVE for the future weeks and months to come:
