In the first part of this article, ten diets that are highly recommended by nutritionists and doctors were highlighted. In this concluding part, another ten diets are showcased therein. Some of them were designed to help with very particular health aspects, like the diet that improves fertility, or the anti-inflammatory diet. Other diets in this list have the purpose of weight loss and general physical health improvement.
You can go with any of these diets to transform your overall health and lifestyle, thereby living the best life you can without any health issues.
Without further ado, let’s dive in:
1. The Ornish Diet
The Ornish Diet – which also emphasizes stress management, exercise (i.e. resistance training, aerobics, flexibility, etc.), and relationships is low in refined carbohydrates, animal protein, and fat. Your weight will reduce drastically while your overall health is enhanced extensively.
2. The Fertility Diet
The Fertility Diet began as research from Nurses’ Health Study which dates back as far as 1976. It is about tweaking specific aspects of your diet such that it increases ovulation, thereby significantly improving your chances of getting pregnant. The diet plan was based on the Nurses’ study which revealed that women who ate whole grains, plant protein, and ‘good’ fats were able to improve their egg supply while those who consumed refined carbohydrates, ‘bad’ fats, and red meat produced fewer eggs. This resulted in an increase in the risk of ovulatory infertility.
3. Jenny Craig Diet
Jenny Craig diet is all about prepackaged recipes and meals from Jenny’s which focuses on losing weight via simple restriction of calorie intake plus an active lifestyle along with modifying your behavior. Adherents will have personal consultants that will guide them through their journeys from the first day. You will learn how much you should eat, what a balanced diet means and looks like, etc.
4. Vegetarian Diet
Many types of vegetarian diets exist today, so you are at liberty to choose which kind you want to be. However, most vegans opt for the Lacto-ovo approach which eliminates fish, meat, and poultry from their diet. But they still consume eggs and dairy products.
5. Asian Diet
In reality, there is no single Asian diet. However, a consumer-friendly Asian diet pyramid was developed by a non-profit think tank and involves daily consumption of noodles, rice, millet, bread, whole grains, fruits, seeds, vegetables, and nuts, etc. Shellfish and fish are optional every day, and adherents can have poultry, eggs or something sweet at least once every week.
6. Dr. Weil’s Anti-inflammatory Diet
Dr. Weil’s anti-inflammatory diet aims to improve both physical and mental health while preventing diseases extensively. It focuses on the effects of systemic inflammation, causes, and what to eat to combat it. It involves consuming fiber-rich fruits, healthy fats along with veggies and a lot of water. The consumption of animal protein is severely limited, but oily fish is permissible.
7. Flat Belly Diet
The Flat Belly Diet is aimed at just that: to flatten your protruding belly by shedding excess pounds within a short time. This diet is based on a theory that postulates that plant-based fats or MUFAs – i.e., monounsaturated fatty acids – not only target but also obliterate belly fat while significantly preventing overeating and promoting fullness. Monounsaturated fatty acids are present in seeds, nuts, avocado, olive oil, chocolate, etc.
8. Nutritarian Diet
The creator of this diet assures adherents that they will not only lose weight but will also be able to keep it off while reaching peak health via nutrient-rich, whole-plant foods. The Nutritarian Diet focuses more on superfoods while limiting the intake of animal protein.
9. Spark Solution Diet
The Spark Solution diet is a plan that involves two weeks of exercise and controlled diet. It is believed that if followed strictly, the Spark Solution can help you to lose weight significantly as a result of reduced-calorie and nutritious meal plan. This implies that at the end of two weeks, you will already be on the fast track to a highly successful weight loss as well as a healthier lifestyle.
