Diets Discussed In Today’s Show:
- Low Carb Diet – Total mean daily carbohydrate intake below 45% of total calories is therefore a low-carbohydrate diet
Low Glycemic Index Diet – This is another version of the low carb diet
Low Fat / Vegetarian Diet – Mostly plant based, but typically include dairy and eggs
The Mediterranean Diet – Based on the common themes of the traditional dietary pattern that prevails in Mediterranean countries: emphasis on olive oil, vegetables, fruits, nuts and seeds, beans and legumes, selective dairy intake, and whole grains. Often fish and other seafood and quite limited consumption of meat.
Dash Diet – a mostly plant based diet inclusive of some animal products with an emphasis on low-fat and nonfat dairy products.
Paleo Diet – Relative low in fat, low in objectionable carbohydrate sources, namely, starches and added sugars, high in vegetables, fruits, nuts and seeds and fiber and low glycemic. An emphasis on lean meat remains distinctive, however, and may represent an advantage related particularly to satiety.
