This year featured some interesting diet trends that people followed to change their lifestyles and get good results.
So let’s have a look at 3 of the most popular diet trends of the year:
The keto diet, a low-carb diet, was one of the most followed diet plans of the year. This diet aims to lower the body’s blood sugar and insulin levels. The focus is on reducing the intake of carbs and replacing them with fat. This process is called ketosis and leads to burning more fat and giving your body more energy.
The pegan diet is a paleo diet combined with a vegan diet. On one hand, you have the paleo diet, which includes foods that were available in the paleolithic era about 2 million years ago such as fruits, nuts, fish, and vegetables. Also, this diet leaves out dairy, oil, salt, or coffee. And on the other hand, you have a vegan diet, which doesn’t include animal products or by-products like eggs, milk, cheese, honey, or meat.
The pegan diet is more vegetable-based and may help you lose weight because of the consumption of more fiber and fewer calories.
This diet involves eating foods that people from the Mediterranean region usually eat. Foods that are preferred in this diet include lots of vegetables, fruits, whole grains, healthy fats, dairy, fish in moderate amounts, and… wine! Yes! However, it should always be moderate.
This diet involves getting more fiber, antioxidants, and minerals that boost your immune system.
Bonus: Intermittent fasting
Even though this is not a diet itself since it doesn’t tell you what to eat and what to avoid, it involves 16-hour fasting or fasting for 24 hours two times a week. This new eating pattern, which basically involves eating fewer calories, became really popular this year.
