Experts Reveal 2018's Most Followed Diet
An expert reveals the "number one diet for 2018" due to help people shed extra pounds gained over the winter months.
After consuming Thanksgiving meals or Christmas feasts filled with calories and carbs, as well as high-caloric beverages over New Year’s Eve, many people are expected to think of a new diet they hope to follow in 2017 as they attempt to get into shape, however they won’t know exactly what diet will work for them.
Josh Axe, DNM, DC, and CNS said the best diet for everyone to follow in 2018 will be the keto diet.
"The keto diet, also known as the high-fat, low-carb diet, will be the fastest growing of 2018 ... and possibly the next 10 years," Axe said to mydomaine.com. "If done correctly, research suggests shifting your body into a ketogenic state cannot only fuel a healthy weight, but it can also lead to a host of other health benefits," he mentioned.
The Keto Diet
The ketogenic or keto diet is one that emphasises low carbs and the majority of the calories to come from high-fat sources.
"Ideally, the ketogenic diet should include three different types of fats: saturated fat (from animal products like fatty meat, butter, and potentially, full-fat dairy), monounsaturated fats (from olive oil or avocados), and polyunsaturated fats (from fish, certain oils, and small amounts of nuts and seeds)," stated Axe.
This diet is meant to provide dieters with healthy fat doses that are due to provide energy to the body over the duration of a day.
"Some of the reasons that the ketogenic diet is unique and so effective are that it helps reduce hunger and cravings, helps balance hormones, improves energy levels, supports cognitive performance, and provides protection against disease long-term.”
He concluded with how the keto diet is an easier way to diet and essentially the opposite of the typical concept of dieting.
