Top Trending Diets of 2020
Food can never run out of business. New cuisines and flavors keep our hunger pangs working full time. But we should also keep an eye on our calorie intake. Are there any diets that can successfully fulfil our health and fitness goals in the year 2020? Let’s check.
Although the name might give an indication of the volume or bulkiness of the meal, in reality, it is a simple meal approach. Any guess on the founder of this healthy dinner ideas? The credit goes to Barbara Rolls. She is a PhD and a professor of nutrition at Penn State University, Pennsylvania, United States who emphasises on eating foods that provide the most amount of nutrition at least number of calories. The food is split into four different types of food groups – from least energy-dense to most energy-dense. While the first option includes simple broth, to non-starchy fruits and vegetables, the second option is more about butter, chocolate and cookies. The goal of the Volumetrics diet is to promote more of lower-density foods. Erin Morse, the Chief Clinical Dietitian at UCLA Hospital has a valid point when he says “The Volumetrics diet is great for people who like large volumes of food”. The goodness of this diet plan is that it keeps you feeling satiated, and is nowhere near starvation.
The ketogenic diet is all over the place and the food business for quite some time. It is a low- carbohydrate and high-fat diet that has numerous health benefits for the massive reduction it brings in insulin and blood sugar levels. And yes, it can help you lose weight without counting calories or keeping a track of your food intake. Followers of the keto diet have to stay away from carb-based foods like sugars, potatoes, rice, grains, legumes, candy, juice and most fruits. Keto diet means eating more of low-carb vegetarian recipes such as green veggies.
It may be difficult to stay away from eating animal products but that is the beauty of a raw vegan diet – it is ethically right and incredibly healthy. A vegan or plant-based diet gets you a lower BMI. At the same time, it is important to lay stress on vital minerals like calcium, zinc, iron and B12 which might have been missed out on eating a plant-based diet. Once in a while, it is okay to binge on cheat food like vegan ice-cream, as long as you don’t make it a daily habit.
For those struggling with digestive and inflammation issues, a probiotic diet helps maintain gut health. Probiotic drinks like kefir (fermented milk), kimchi have been trending for a few years and this year too they will continue to rise in popularity. Probiotics have live cultures like those found in the gut and help boost immunity and overall health.
You just read Probiotic. The Prebiotics is a type of fibre that promotes the growth of healthy bacteria – the Probiotics. It is found naturally in vegetables, fruits, legumes, grains and nuts.
The traditional white flour will always remain a staple diet, but there is a growing increase in other types of flour like oat flour, rice flour, soya flour, buckwheat flour.
Expect a surge in the legume pasta. This colorful and nutrient-rich pasta is an alternative made with chickpeas or red or green lentils, which makes them free from fillers, binders and additives. Did you know that 100 gm of legume pasta contains double the amount of protein and double the amount of fibre?
