Raw Diet

Raw Food Diet -
Raw food is packed with natural enzymes and nutrients that help the body reach optimal health. Raw food hasn’t been cooked, processed, microwaved, irradiated, genetically engineered or exposed to pesticides or herbicides. It includes fresh fruits, berries, vegetables, nuts, seeds and herbs in their whole, natural state. Most who follow the plan consume only half the calories they would eat on a cooked diet.
Plant-based foods are never heated above 115 degrees Fahrenheit. Some people on the diet choose to consume raw animal products, such as raw (unpasteurized) milk, cheese made from raw milk, sashimi, raw fish and certain kinds of raw meat. You will eat lots of fresh fruit and vegetables, sprouts, seeds and nuts, including cashews, sunflower seeds and raw almond butter. Grains are also OK, as are dried organic legumes (think lentils, chickpeas, adzuki beans and mung beans) eaten raw. Other common choices include cold-pressed extra-virgin olive oil; raw virgin coconut oil; and raw coconut butter. Freshly-squeezed vegetable juice and herbal tea are also staples.
What’s off-limits? Anything pasteurized, all processed foods, refined sugars and flours, table salt and caffeine. Say goodbye to pasta, baked goods, junk food and most store-bought juices, drinks and milks.
You will need to learn how to properly prepare your food. Raw foodies become expert at juicing, blending, dehydrating, sprouting, germinating, cutting, chopping and rehydrating.
It is up to you to create a sensible plan and avoid risks like food poisoning that could stem from eating raw or undercooked meat, fish, milk or eggs.

Mediterranean Diet

Mediterranean Diet - Is a diet low in red meat, sugar and saturated fats and high in produce, nuts and other healthful foods. The diet emphasizes fruits, veggies, whole grains, beans, nuts, legumes, olive oil and flavorful herbs and spices. Fish and seafood are eaten at least a couple of times a week and poultry, eggs, cheese and yogurt in moderation. Sweets and red meat are eaten on special occasions. Emphasis is on a variety of minimally processed foods and olive oil is used instead of butter or margarine.
The Mediterranean diet has been associated with a decreased risk of heart disease, and it’s been shown to reduce blood pressure and “bad” LDL cholesterol. This is because it includes healthier mono- and polyunsaturated fats in moderation (which can reduce cholesterol).

Glycemic Index Diet

Glycemic Index Diet- Glycemic Index(GI) is a scientific ranking that classifies foods based on how quickly they raise blood sugar levels. High-GI foods trigger a rise in blood sugar and release insulin, which is thought to promote fat storage, increase hunger, and lead to weight gain. The glycemic index runs from 0 to 100 and uses glucose, which has a GI score of 100. The effect foods have on blood sugar levels are compared with this, and then given a GI value of their own.
The GI diet plans suggest eating low-GI foods such as lean protein, vegetables, foods with lots of fiber and whole grains. Foods that are considered to have a high-GI rating (greater than 70) are to be avoided.
Example of Low-GI foods include: oats, whole grains, brown rice, cabbage, strawberries, peanuts, tomatoes, broccoli, mushrooms ect.. However, some foods with a low-GI value are also loaded with salt, fat, and very little nutrients. Foods such as dates, broad beans, and baked potatoes are full of nutrients and should all be considered as part of a healthy diet even though they have high GI values and included in the category of "foods to be avoided" for those on a GI diet. It's important to be aware of the nutritious value of foods, not just their GI score. Research does show, that many low-GI foods could help prevent heart disease, stroke, and diabetes.
As long as you use common sense and select healthy whole grains, lean protein, and good fats, a GI diet could be the right approach for a weight loss strategy for you. As with any healthy weight loss program, be aware of portion sizes and include regular physical exercise.
