There are many diets recommended today for either health or weight loss, or both.
This INFOGRAPHIC guide has been produced to show you some of the different types of diets available.
By comparing the focus of each and their various inclusions and exclusions you will be better able to determine what type of diet may best suit you and your lifestyle.
REMEMBER: The different types of diet below are just templates where you can build upon your OWN depending on your needs and your condition.
But in fairness, all the plans below works WELL with Obesity, Hypertension, and Diabetes actually!
The point to remember is to base your eating plan around the foods you like so that you can stick to a healthy diet.
Changing dietary habits can be hard enough without feeling resentful or restricted.
If you do choose a dietary style you like the foods in, it will be so much easier to forego the few foods or few types that are causing problems.
If you find yourself unable to stick to any one diet, focus on eating more WHOLE FOODS, less PROCESSED FOODS and being aware of portion sizes.
