                                                    The Top Fad Diets That Are Actually Worth the Hype

                                                    The Top Fad Diets That Are Actually Worth the Hype

                                                    You have probably seen enough fad diets to last a lifetime. Many have become popular overnight and left just as quickly.

                                                    Some fad diets, though, have actually passed the test of time and are making some headway in the nutritional world.

                                                    Outlined below are four fad diets that are actually beneficial for your health and wellness. Read on to find out why you should consider adopting one (or more) of these healthy eating styles today.

                                                    An important concept you should keep in mind is to disregard the term “diet” as it is typically used. The word diet implies the idea of restriction and removal. Instead, think of the word diet in this context as a healthy eating lifestyle.

                                                    Let’s take a look at some of these healthy eating lifestyles that have been categorized, by no fault of their own, as fad diets.

                                                    1. The Paleo Diet

                                                    The paleo diet, or ancestral eating, is simply eating the way your paleolithic ancestors would have up to 10,000 years ago, or when the agriculture age began.

                                                    The advantage now is you don’t have to do this in a loin cloth, unless you want to… The focus of this diet is proteins, vegetables, some fruits, nuts and seeds and some healthy fats.

                                                    In the paleo diet, there aren’t any grains, starchy carbohydrates, sugars, or dairy.

                                                    Advertising

                                                    How Your Health Can Change With Paleo

                                                    The paleo diet is a good way to keep your blood sugar under control. It can also have a positive effect on type 2 diabetes, and can lower your risk of cardiovascular disease.

                                                    With this healthy eating lifestyle, people have also achieved good weight loss results and boast improved energy levels. [1]

                                                    It’s not just what’s in the paleo diet that’s important, it’s what’s NOT in it. There aren’t any processed and manufactured foods, junk foods, artificial ingredients or chemical additives.

                                                    Paleo is a way of eating that gets you more in tune with your body and, therefore, can provide a lot of benefits.

                                                    2. Whole30

                                                    The Whole30 diet is relatively new and owes its popularity to social media and the #Whole30 Instagram hashtag that allowed people to share and broadcast their success with the diet.

                                                    With Whole30 you are taking 30 days and focusing on nutritious whole foods such as meats, nuts and seeds, seafood, eggs, vegetables, and fruits.

                                                    During the month you are eliminating:

                                                    Advertising

                                                    • sugar
                                                    • alcohol
                                                    • legumes
                                                    • grains
                                                    • dairy
                                                    • soy

                                                    Whole30 is similar to paleo, but it goes a bit further eliminating sweeteners such as honey or maple syrup.

                                                    At the end of the 30 days, you strategically reintroduce those eliminated foods back into your diet to discover any possibility of health consequences from them or even potential food allergies.

                                                    Finding Out How Food Impacts You

                                                    Most people eat the same things so often and may not realize that certain foods are causing health consequences, as they’ve become accustomed to feeling lethargic and run down.

                                                    With Whole30 you get the chance to see how these foods may have a negative impact on your body. You’ll also reset your taste buds, which may have become desensitized from processed and artificial “foods” and excess salt.

                                                    This diet will help you regain your love of food… in a healthy way!

                                                    3. The Mediterranean Diet

                                                    The Mediterranean diet has been at the top of the list as a very effective diet for some time now.

                                                    For people in countries like Italy or Greece, this has simply been a normal way of life–along with higher activity levels, sunlight exposure, proximity to water, and lower stress.

                                                    Advertising

                                                    With the Mediterranean diet, the focus is on heart-healthy foods. It looks like this:

                                                    • Fruits & vegetables
                                                    • Whole grains
                                                    • Legumes & nuts
                                                    • Replacing butter with olive oil
                                                    • Using herbs and spices instead of salt
                                                    • Eating fish and poultry at least twice a week
                                                    • Moderate amounts of red wine

                                                    Help Your Heart & Overall Health With A Mediterranean Diet

                                                    Information from the Mayo Clinic shows that this diet reduces heart disease and lowers your “bad” LDL cholesterol. Studies involving 1.5 million people demonstrated that the Mediterranean diet was associated with a reduced risk of cardiovascular mortality, along with overall mortality. [2]

                                                    With all these benefits, this is definitely a “fad diet” that’s worth the hype.

                                                    4. The Alkaline Diet

                                                    The alkaline diet is about changing the foods you eat so that you put your body into an alkaline state and out of an acidic state. When your body is too far on the acidic side it can result in a condition called acidosis. This can lead to issues in your body such as upset stomach, breathing difficulties, headaches, weakness and, fatigue. In extreme cases, it can result in shock, coma, or death.

                                                    The goal is to get your body in a more alkaline state, which results in overall better health. The focus is on including alkaline boosting foods such as fruits, nuts, vegetables, and legumes. You’re also wanting to reduce acidic foods such as low quality beef and poultry, dairy, eggs, grains, and alcohol.

                                                    Pros & Cons With The Alkaline Diet

                                                    The benefits that come from this way of eating is that reduction in inferior quality foods, processed items and alcohol. You may feel improved energy levels, mental clarity and even better joint health.

                                                    People also report weight loss but again this may come from the reduction in calories from junk and processed foods but this is not a bad thing at all.

                                                    There can be a danger in categorizing things as a fad diet because fads come and go. People are always looking for the next big thing or a quick fix.
