The Best Diet 2014

1: Mediterranean diet

The Mediterranean diet is not a set of clear rules and recommendations, but rather a generalization of the traditional eating habits of northeastern Spain, southern France, Portugal, Greece, Italy and a number of other warm European countries.

The basis of the diet is the replacement of animal fats with vegetable oils, consumption of cereals, lots of vegetables and legumes, daily consumption of fish and seafood. Effects - reducing the level of "bad" cholesterol and maintaining a stable weight.

2: Paleodieta

Paleodieta( a "cave man" diet) refers to the rejection of modern food products produced in food factories, and the transition to traditional food known to people for centuries. The name refers to the Paleolithic period, which ended 15 thousand years ago.

The diet allows to eat fish, poultry and meat, eggs, vegetables, fruits, mushrooms and nuts. Grain, flour and flour products, legumes, sugar, milk, dairy products and processed vegetable oils are excluded. Effects - improvement of well-being and weight loss.

3: Gluten-free diet

Gluten is a protein that forms part of cereals;the content in wheat reaches 80%, in the grain of rye - about 50%.The main function of gluten in the production of food is binding and viscosity. However, that's why gluten glues food in the stomach.

In some people, when it is used, the work of the intestine is disrupted, the level of assimilation of vitamins decreases, a person feels constant discomfort and quickly becomes tired. Refusal of products containing gluten can improve health and relieve gravity in the stomach.

4: Cyclic keto diet

A cyclic keto diet is a weekly repetition of nutrition according to the following principle: from Monday to Thursday evening - the days of a strict keto diet;Thursday evening, Friday and Saturday - high calorie boot days;Sunday is a transitional day.

Compliance with this principle of nutrition on the background of special training is designed in the shortest time to burn excess subcutaneous fatty tissue. It is for this reason that the CKD diet is one of the most popular among professional athletes.

5: Vegetarian diet

According to the latest scientific data, even healthy people are recommended to exclude the use of meat semi-finished products and sausages, reducing the total consumption of red meat to 300-500 grams per week. The reason - harmful enzymes contained in meat.

Given that industrial chicken is overloaded with hormones, and fish are contaminated with mercury, refusal of meat more often happens not for religious reasons. The effect( when controlling the consumption of vegetable protein) - improving well-being and digestion.

6: Sugar failure

Studies show that calories of sweet drinks and desserts are literally invisible to the body. They seem to cut off the mechanisms of protection from overeating - however, getting pleasure from stimulating the brain with sugar, a person gets a huge amount of calories.

Among the diseases, possibly provoked by the use of sugar, is more often called not only obesity, but also diabetes, Alzheimer's disease and other serious diseases. It is important to understand that the rejection of sugar is primarily a matter of health, not just weight loss.

7: "Control of hunger"

Recent scientific work on neuroscience shows that the human brain autonomously controls body weight, maintaining a weight of 5-7 kg from the "set-point" regardless of the level of physical activity or evencaloric intake.

With this, the set-point can easily be shifted up by the use of excessively high-calorie products, but it is extremely difficult to lower. Control of hunger and habit is only when you want it - one of the most important ways to maintain body weight, even in the absence of diets.


The majority of popular diets of the outgoing year is based on the exclusion from the diet of products that have undergone significant changes in the process of cultivation and processing. More and more people tend to believe that the simpler and more typical the food consumed, the better for the body.
