Healthy Living | Modern Diets For Modern Women


There are lots of diet plans out there, all of which preach different theories and ideas about the foods that we eat. But they can’t all work, can they? Well, each year it seems like a new diet is brought out based on some new scientific research onto our bodies and the effect of the food that we eat. Here are some of the ones that have made it big this year – which one sounds like it would work for you?

The Atkins Diet Renaissance

Back in the 1980s and 1990s, everyone was hot for The Atkins Diet. This high-fat diet plan was said to help followers shed pounds as they were eating hardly any carbohydrates. It hasn’t been all that popular over the past few years, but there now seems to be an Atkins renaissance occurring as mega stars like Kim Kardashian have openly supported it. To start off with, you need to spend a couple of weeks eating no carbs at all. Then, you can slowly start to reintroduce them to your diet, but they still need to be limited.

The HCG Diet

Studies show that it isn’t just the food that we eat which plays a part in our body weight. The chemicals and hormones in our system also play a big part. And this is the whole premise behind the HCGDiet.com. The HCG in its name stands for Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, which is a hormone that is present in both men and women. It is closely linked to the metabolism. People who were giving this hormone in higher doses were found to lose abnormal fat. Along with plenty of exercise and a strict diet, people on the HCG diet have lost significant amounts of weight.

The Mediterranean Diet

The Mediterranean Diet is popular with those who want to increase their overall health as well as lose some body fat. It’s basically the diet what people who live on the Mediterranean follow: plenty of whole grains, healthy oils, and fresh vegetables. As you can see, if you follow the Mediterranean Diet, it won’t be like following a diet at all. You can eat plenty of delicious Italian food as long as you don’t overdo all the cheese and pasta!

Infused Water

For the past couple of years, smoothies were all the rage. People would drink one instead of having a meal as it was a great way to reduce calories while getting plenty of nutritional goodness. But, these days, the smoothie fad is over and has been replaced by infused waters. Plus, this is great for those who don’t like plain old water. It’s a fab way of hydrating and getting lots of vitamins and minerals. You will be able to find lots of delicious recipes online at sites like dish.allrecipes.com/fresh-ideas-for-making-infused-water/.

So, you don’t have to stick to old-fashioned diet plans like the cabin soup diet. There are always new diets being developed. Once you find the right one for you and your body, you will really enjoy the results!
