While in 2023, many types of diets are being followed by everyone, both individually and in a community with various goals. A popular type of diet in 2023 is the Keto diet.
Diet is an eating pattern that regulates the type of food, portions and time to eat. The more regular your diet is, the more benefits you will experience.
One of the most common goals is to lose weight.
Below we will discuss six (6) types of diets that are successful in 2023
1. The Keto Diet
The keto or ketogenic diet refers to a diet that is low in carbohydrates and high in fat and protein. This diet will bring the body into a state of ‘ketosis’, where the energy burned comes from fat rather than sugar. Thus, weight can be lost quickly.
On a ketogenic diet, 60 to 75 percent of your caloric intake comes from fat and 15 to 30 calories come from protein. The remaining 5 to 10 percent comes from carbohydrates.
Protein sources are usually obtained from animal meat, eggs or animal heart. While fat is obtained from the consumption of olive oil, vegetable oil, avocado, coconut milk and canola oil.
In the long term, the ketogenic diet is not recommended. Because this diet greatly limits the intake that the body needs.
2. The DASH diet
DASH is an acronym for Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension. The early creation of the DASH diet was actually aimed at lowering high blood pressure.
The DASH diet emphasizes eating whole, nutrient-dense foods, but more fruits and vegetables are recommended. This diet also calls for the consumption of nuts, lean meats, fish, chicken, whole grains and healthy fats.
The DASH diet allows the consumption of dairy, but only low-fat or fat-free.
3. Vegan diet
A vegan diet is a diet that avoids consuming animal-derived ingredients and processed products. Vegetarians or vegans get their nutritional intake from plant-based products.
The vegan diet was originally adopted by people with certain beliefs. Then it developed and many people started to look at it from the side of their health. Others decide to become vegan or vegetarian for ethical reasons or to protect animals’ rights not to eat meat.
4. The Mediterranean Diet
The Mediterranean diet is still one of the most sought-after diets in 2022. This diet is inspired by the lifestyle of people living in the Mediterranean basin such as Italy, Greece and Spain.
The Mediterranean diet is not just an ordinary diet that can only lose weight. This diet can prevent people from contracting various diseases such as strokes, heart and lung problems such as asthma.
Based on research, this diet only loses about 2.2 kg of body weight if followed regularly for 60 days.
5. The Flexitarian Diet
The flexitarian diet is part of vegetarianism. This diet prioritizes the consumption of vegetables and whole grains and still allows the consumption of meat and milk. Eating high-fiber fruits, vegetables, and whole grains has been shown to maintain heart health, help lower cholesterol, and stabilize blood pressure.
Also, in this flexitarian diet, the type of processed food intake is limited so that it can help with weight loss. Although basically weight loss is not the main goal of this flexitarian diet.
