Gone are the days of simply ‘eating healthy.’ Today if you want to get fit, there’s a lot more to it than just eating less and being more active. We have seen many diet trends come and go, but let’s take a look at some that are still popular amongst people from all age groups.
With its emphasis on fruits, vegetables, whole grains, seafood, and other healthy fares, the Mediterranean diet is said to be the most sensible diet. For those who don’t know, this diet is based on traditional foods that people used to eat in countries like Italy and Greece back in the 1960s.
This diet contains the accepted amount of protein, carbs, fat, and other nutrients that one requires. For best results, one must exercise daily along with following this diet.
We have all heard of Keto - a low carb, high-fat diet. It not only helps you lose weight but is said to increase your energy levels. The drastic reduction of carbohydrate intake puts your body into a metabolic state called ‘ketosis.’
People following the Keto diet can also check whether they're in ketosis with the help of Ketone strips which are available online.
Intermittent fasting is an eating pattern that cycles between periods of fasting and eating which is most popular amongst millennials and gen Z. The best part about intermittent fasting is that there is no particular diet chart one has to follow but one is allowed to eat meals only within a set time frame. Exercising while following Intermittent fasting will supposedly help you lose weight faster.
As we all know, diets are not one-size-fits-all, what works for one person may not work for another. So it's best to figure out your individual weight loss goals and nutrition priorities and then go forward with the same.
