Diet trends women followed to shed kilos from their bodies

New Delhi : It is no hidden secret that dieting is one of the quickest ways to shed kilos from the bodies. After all, our bodies are what we eat daily.

With a change in our lifestyles in the past few years, our eating habits have inclined more towards unhealthy food items.

And to make things worse, our busy schedule keeps us away from the exercises and many physical activities, inviting extra kgs to settle on the body and putting health on risk.

Amid all of this, the only survival way is to make the diet plan better and decrease the health risk. On following up the diet trend this year, we found that the women followed some famous diet plans to shed their weights.

Check out some of the famous diet plans below:

Keto Diet

Keto was one of the most followed diet plans of the year. This is a low card diet that lowers the body's blood sugar and insulin level and this shifts the metabolism of the body towards fat. The diet reduces the intake of carbs and replaces it with fat. This process is called ketosis. 

This leads to burning more fat and giving your body more energy. The diet usually involves 5% carbohydrates, 70% fat and 25% protein. Other than helping you lose weight, keto diet also helps in fighting cancer, improving heart health, preventing acne among others.

Pegan Diet

Pegan diet is paleo diet plus vegan diet. The paleo diet follows foods that were available in the paleolithic era about 2 million years ago like fruits, nuts, fish, and vegetables. It doesn't include any dairy, oil, salt or coffee. Vegan diet doesn't include animal products and by-products like eggs, milk, cheese, honey or meat. 

Following pegan diet basically involves eating 75% fruits and vegetables. Pegan diet doesn't include dairy, grains, sugar, processed foods and sugar. The pegan diet makes your plate more vegetable-based and this helps you lose weight because you consume more fiber and fewer calories.

Intermittent Fasting

Intermittent Fasting is not a diet particularly but it is like a timed approach to eating your meals. This diet doesn't tell you what to eat and what not to but it tells you when to eat. This involves 16-hour fasting or fasting for 24 hours two times a week. This new eating pattern got really popular this year. Intermittent fasting involves eating fewer calories and this helps in weight loss.

Mediterranean Diet

This diet involves eating the way people from the Mediterranean region usually eat. This diet inculdes having red wine in moderation, lot of vegetables, fruits and whole grains, healthy fats, dairy and fish in moderate amount, white meat and red meat. Foods that are to be avoided in this diet plan include: 

  • Refined oils
  • Refined grains
  • Foods with extra sugar
  • Packed foods

The diet involves having more fiber, antioxidants and minerals that boost your immunity.
