Which Natural Diet Solution Is Best For You?

Tuesday, March 27, 2018

     We all know the importance of healthy eating, for ourselves and for our children, if we want to have a fit, healthy and active lifestyle. Natural and organic foods should be the cornerstone of our balanced and nutritious diet, but as adults there may also be times when we've overindulged a little and want to lose weight. There are a plethora of artificial diet plans, meals and products on the market, but thankfully there are also diet regimes that are based upon completely natural ingredients. Take a look at our handy guide to three of these plans and see which one is best for you and your needs.

Paleo Diet

     The Paleoloithic, or paleo, diet is also known as the caveman diet, and is based upon the principle that we should eat the same food as our very earliest ancestors in the paleolithic period of the stone age did. In short, this means that we should concentrate on fruit and vegetables, meat, nuts and roots. Foodstuffs which are ruled out by the paleo diet included alcohol, coffee, sugar, dairy products, grains and legumes. The advantage to this diet is that it is completely natural and many adherents have reported significant weight loss; the disadvantage, however, is that it is too restrictive for many people, and whilst a daily paleo diet may have been great for ancient cave dwellers it can soon seem boring to our modern palates.

Ketogenic Diet

     Ketogenic diets are also known by a variety of different names, most commonly as a low carb diet, and this perfectly describes the nature of this plan. The body typically creates most of its energy by burning carbohydrates, but if a person's diet means that carbohydrates are in short supply, it has to turn to another source: ketones. These are fatty deposits in the liver, and so burning ketones means that you can lose unnecessary fat and lose weight. It's perfectly harmless, and in fact the diet originated in the 1920s as a treatment for pediatric epilepsy. More details of the keto diet and what can .and can't be eaten can be found at the specialist website www.ketogenicsupplementreviews.com/ketosis-diet/.

DASH Diet

     The DASH diet is gaining in popularity, and like the Ketogenic diet it too was originally devised to solve a medical problem. DASH is an acronym that stands for Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension, and as this name suggests it's been shown to be an effective way to fight high blood pressure. That's because it's a low salt diet, and it also contains low amounts of cholesterol, saturated fats and trans fats, whilst placing an emphasis upon fruit, vegetables and low fat dairy products. This not only lowers blood pressure it can also be a great way to lose weight when followed over an extended period of time. 

     When we reach our target weight we look good and feel good, and this can improve our self confidence and energy levels as well. The paleo, ketatonic and DASH diets can all help us achieve this, but as with all diets they will involve discipline and sacrifice. Consider the diets carefully and decide which foodstuffs you can do without before choosing one, after all you're much more likely to stick to a diet and reap its benefits if you still enjoy your meals.
