What are other possible diet plan options?
There are a number of other diets that you can follow in order to achieve weight loss such as Intermittent Fasting, Keto, Low Carb or the Paleo diet plan.
Intermittent Fasting can take a number of different forms but the most popular diet plan for weight loss is limiting your food intake between the hours of 1pm and 8pm which can mean skipping breakfast and avoiding late-night snacking.
The Keto, or ketogenic diet plan is a very popular choice and can often be found on the social media profiles of your favourite fitness influencers. This diet’s main principles are around low carbohydrate and a high amount of fat such as meat, fish, eggs, butter, nuts, healthy oils, avocados (of course!) and certain vegetables.
A Low Carb diet can be with anything up to around 100 grams of carbs per day. Restricting carbs is well known to boost your weight loss and this can mean cutting your intake of pasta, rice, cereals, bread and potatoes where possible. This diet plan focuses on proteins, including meat, poultry, fish and eggs, and non-starchy vegetables like green beans, spinach, celery, broccoli and cabbage.
The Paleo diet is based around the idea that the human body is not meant for the eating habits of today and instead functions better without industrial farming practices. Its most basic principles are based around natural produce and foraging, including lean meats, fish, fruit, vegetables, nuts and seeds.
