TOP 3 DIET TRENDS FOR 2020
With every New Year goals are set, diets are started and resolutions are made. We decided to review and list the top 3 diet/nutrition trends of 2020 and provide you insight into the trends we like and why we think they are effective.
1. The Mediterranean Diet
Not only does this rank #1 in healthy diets for weight loss in 2020, but the Mediterranean diet is the basis behind our very popular and very successful ReCode Diet Weight Loss Program .This is a diet low in saturated fats, and processed sugars, and high in fruits, veggies, nuts and healthy fats. The Mediterranean Diet not only helps with fat loss but also has been shown to improve heart and brain health, and help control or prevent diabetes.
Year after year, trend after trend, the Mediterranean Diet comes in at the top of the list for popularity as well as effectiveness. We believe that the combination of healthy foods, vegetable and seafood heavy recipes and healthy fats all wrapped up in a delicious variety of offerings makes this diet easily available to most people but also a great way to institute a long term lifestyle change in eating habits.
The DASH Diet
The DASH Diet, (Dietary Approaches to Stop hHypertension), was designed to stop or prevent high blood pressure by encouraging the consumption of fruits, veggies, nuts, and high fiber foods while decreasing the total amount of daily sodium and saturated fats. The ideal side effect of following a plan like this is weight loss due to the elimination of processed/ high sodium foods.
- Nutritionally Balanced
- Easy to Follow
- Great for Long Term Weight Loss, & Maintenance
Although designed for clinical purposes, the DASH diet has recently become popular for people looking to lose weight who are not at risk for diabetes due to its simple to follow guidelines and researched based origins.
The Flexitarian Diet
The Flexitarian Diet or the “Flexible Vegetarian Diet,” is a program where you mostly eat a vegetarian based diet, but are still allowed to consume meat from time to time. By incorporating more plant-based foods into your daily meals and eating less saturated fatty meats, one can expect to not only lose fat mass but also improve their overall health.
- Heart Healthy
- Easy to Follow
- Clinically Proven
I would have to say that most vegetarians seem to really be flexitarians. This diet is helpful for people that are looking to follow a simple eating process that allows room for some cheating. Just the fact that people are lowering the consumption of unhealthy animal fats and increasing their vegetable intake helps everyone on this diet see positive results.
If you really examine all of these diets you will see that at their core they are very similar. Nutrition isn’t as difficult as most marketing materials make it out to be. What is difficult is navigating all the fads and bad information floating around attempting to manipulate the general public into eating foods that are genuinely unhealthy. The most important feature of any diet regimen is whether or not you feel you can stick to the principal guidelines for the required amount of time.
If you want to be successful, start with committing to a small chunk of time. 3o days is nothing out of your life when you think about it but it can make all the difference in the world.
