Alongside the fit-fam movement and summer body craze, dieting is the next best thing. There are different reasons for dieting from losing weight to improving their overall health. Most popular among these diets being the Ketogenic diet. While being so popular not everyone can deal with the fatigue and light-headedness that comes with it. Therefore, no diet is one-size-fits-all, choosing the one that fits your lifestyle and that you can stick to over the long term. It is important to choose one that fits your lifestyle and that you can stick to over the long term. Here are the Top 5 to choose from:
1, Mediterranean Diet
The Mediterranean diet ranked first on the US News and World Report list for the easiest diet to follow, best plant-based diet and the best diet for diabetes. The difference from other low-carb diets is that you’re going to swap saturated fats for unsaturated fats. That means rather than butter, cheese, and cream, you’re eating olive oil, fatty fish, nuts, seeds, and avocado as your main sources of fat. You will also focus on vegetables and whole grains as carb sources.
2. Paleo Diet:
Known as the Paleolithic diet as in the stone age, it emphasises complete abstinence from processed foods. To make sure it stays low-carb, focus on vegetables that fall naturally lower on the carb spectrum, like cucumbers, tomatoes, zucchini, and peppers. The main aim is to eat as your great-grandparents ate.
The best part of this diet is that it’s not specifically designed to be low in carbs. Here is the catch: for 30 days (no cheating!), you’re asked to eat meat, seafood, veggies, fruits, and fats and stay away from added sugar of any kind.
4. Atkins Diet
This was one of the very first low-carb diets for weight loss. It starts with a very-low, ketogenic-like intake and then gradually adds back in carb sources, like vegetables and fruit.
5. Dukan diet
This is similar to Atkins but consists of four phases. First, you’ll focus on foods high in protein, and then add vegetables back in, followed by gradually introducing more carb-containing foods, like fruit and whole-grain bread, plus an allowance of two celebration meals per week. In the final phase, you’ll aim to maintain your weight loss results by eating foods from all food groups, supplementing with oat bran. All of which are crowned with daily fitness routines.
