From keto to intermittent diets: All you need to know
It is common to hear about the different types of diets, through recommendations or via social media as people are always discussing new ways of losing weight or keeping fit. But every time we hear about a new diet, we get even more confused about which one to follow. But it’s not as confusing as it may seem. The real question is, which is the most sustainable and healthy diet to lose weight?
Below are five popular types of diets with their pros and cons.
A vegan diet involves eating only plant-based foods. Those who follow this diet avoid all animal products, including meat, dairy, and eggs. Some people also avoid honey. A vegan diet helps in losing weight as many animal foods are high in fat and calories, so replacing these with low-calorie plant-based foods can help in managing weight. Vegan food is high in fibre, promotes eating whole foods and has low saturated fats. The diet helps promote heart health and is believed to lower the risk of cancer. Vegan diet is healthy and beneficial as long as it’s followed correctly, which means loading up on the whole grains and legumes every day for protein, as one may not intake sufficient protein otherwise. One may follow another diet to lose weight as this diet is very restrictive.
