Listed below I have outlined my 5 favorite diets that I have tried briefly in the past aside from the keto diet
1. Raw food diet
This diet is exactly how it sounds. The diet involves consuming only foods and drinks that are not processed at all. For best practices you should eat only organic foods for this diet as well. People who support this diet generally believe that most of your food that you eat should be uncooked.
This diet is a little extreme. After all, while on this diet you cant even do the simple task of frying up an egg to eat.
Typically this diet is most popular among vegetarians. After all, any meat is off the table since most meats are required to be cooked before eating to begin with.
2. Vegan diet
Veganism is a diet that is more about views on life then just losing weight. A traditional vegan wont eat anything at all that comes from an animal. This means that vegans wont eat meat, dairy or even honey. Usually vegans take on this diet because of their ethical standards.
Many vegans think that the way we farm today can be bad for the environment or that it is morally wrong to kill animals and heat them. They believe that the world would be a better place if everyone just ate plants and not animals since the environment and other animals would suffer less.
Vegans also claim that adopting this diet can clear your mind and even help you feel better physically as well.
3. The Atkins diet
The Atkins diet has a focus on controlling your bodies insulin levels. Typically this diet involves restricting your carbohydrate intake while maximizing fat and protein intake.
When you consume tons of carbs at once, your insulin levels will go up and down pretty quickly. When your insulin rises your body goes into a state where it begins to store food and in turn wont use fat as a source of energy.
This diet is similar to the keto diet in a sense that the people on the atkins diet will eat very little carbs and instead mostly eat fats and protein. Users claim that by eating less carbs they can achieve a level of clear mindedness and physical wellness that you wouldn’t normally be able to attain from a regular high carb diet.
4. Mediterranean diet
The Mediterranean diet comes from southern Europe. It is pretty similar to the Jesus diet. This diet emphasizes eating large amounts of plants, nuts, whole grains and some dairy. Really all the foods you are allowed to eat on this diet must be commonly consumed in the Mediterranean area.
Typically on this diet you should be eating a good amount of fat. However this fat should be healthy fat found in nuts and vegetables. Studies show that adopting this sort of lifestyle can lower your risk of disease. People claim to have more energy on this diet as well.
