With all the controversy about the “best” or “right” way to diet for better health or to lose weight, it isn’t easy choosing a diet. No worries; they all are variations of the “eat more vegetables” diet.
That’s what Charlie Knoles points out on Mind Body Green:
There is so much controversy about the right diet for optimum health and fitness and it seems like the rules are constantly changing. So I’ve broken each diet down for you to make it easy:
Low carb: Don’t eat sugar or bread and eat more vegetables.
Paleo: Eat tons of meat, don’t eat grains and eat more vegetables.
Calorie counting: Don’t eat too much crap and eat more vegetables.
Mediterranean: Eat more vegetables, olive oil and occasionally fish
Macrobiotic: Eat more vegetables and grains, avoiding animal products and processed foods.
Ayurveda: Eat more vegetables in accordance to your Dosha.
Vegan: Eat more vegetables and then even more vegetables.
I happen to know really healthy and fit people who follow ALL of these diets, based on what works best for them. The truth is that they are all variants of the “eat more vegetables” diet, which in my opinion, is the only diet that has ever been proven to really work.
Don’t like vegetables? You can learn to.
