Working on new years resolution anyone?!
We know that losing weight and staying fit is almost always a priority at the start of the year. Look no further, no need to go for fad diets. You may have heard that some commercially marketed fad diets prompt you to lose weight fast on short term, and only to gain it all back and sometimes more over the long run. For the second year in a row, the Mediterranean diet was named the best diet in America by U.S. news and world report.
Following a Mediterranean diet involves eating lots of plants, whole grains, healthy fats and lean proteins, cutting back on processed food red meats and refined sugar. The diet has been linked to many health benefits including lower risk of cancer and heart disease, diabetes and a healthier gut. It is also ranked the easiest diet to follow. So remember to eat natural. Food with no label is the best label of all.
People become vegetarians for many reasons, including health growing concerns about animal welfare or the use of antibiotics and hormones in animals, religious convictions or simply a desire to eat clean in order to avoid excessive use of environmental resources.
Strictly speaking, vegetarians are people who don’t eat meat, poultry or seafood. You can get many of the health benefits of being vegetarian without going all the way. For example, you can plan your diet featuring an emphasis on plant foods or steer your diet in that direction with a few simple substitutions such as plant-based sources of protein, that is; eating beans, tofu, tempeh or seitan instead of meet a couple of times a week. Drinkii’s vegan chicken burger can do just that!
Plant-based eating is recognized as not only nutritionally sufficient but also a way to reduce the risk for many chronic illnesses including lowering (LDL) bad cholesterol, blood pressure (BMI) body mass index, blood sugar and heart diseases and it may provide benefits in the prevention and treatment of certain cancers according to the American Dietetic Association if it is “appropriately planned”. It is important to follow the recommended guidelines on nutrition, fat consumption and weight control. Adopting a vegetarian diet won’t necessarily be good for you if it is a diet full of consumption of soda, candy and refined carbohydrates as after all these are “technically vegetarian”. And keep in mind even from nutritious low-fat plant-based food, you will still gain weight from eating too many calories. So it’s important to practice portion control.
