There are many diets out today for weight loss. There are so many that it can be difficult to figure out which ones work. Below are the top diets that have been used by many people, including celebrities, in 2015.
The 5:2 Diet
The 5:2 diet consists of consuming any quantity of calories five days, and reducing your caloric intake to 500-600 on the two remaining days. Celebrities such as Miranda Kerr and Phillip Schofield have used this diet for weight loss. There are no specific foods you need to consume on the 5:2 diet. You’re free to eat whatever you choose as long as you stick to 500-600 calories on fasting days.
The Paleo diet, also recognized as the caveman diet, has been used by celebrities Miley Cyrus and Mathew McConaughey. This diet consists of eating foods that are based on what human’s ancient ancestors likely ate. Common foods consumed in this diet include nuts, veggies, fruit, herbs and spices, and fish. Processed foods, sugar, and dairy products are not allowed on this diet.
The Alkaline diet is established based off the theory that sugar, alcohol, and processed foods throw off the body’s pH balance, making it acidic. This diet requires eating foods such as fruits, veggies, and whole grains that make the body more alkaline by reducing acidity and rebalancing pH levels. Gwyneth Paltrow is a fan of this diet.
The Vegan diet consists of eliminating all meat, fish, and poultry. Only vegetarian foods are allowed. Beyonce has lost more than ten quid on the Vegan diet.
The Dukan diet consists of eating low-carb, high-protein foods. There are four phases in the diet called the “Attack” phase, “Cruise” phase, “consolidation” phase, and the “Stabilization” phase. Each phase incorporates different foods. The diet doesn’t require calorie counting, making it a favorite for people that want to lose weight without tracking every bite. Kate Middleton and Penelope Cruze have used the Dukan diet to successfully lose weight.
The Mediterranean diet is inspired by the dietary patterns of Italy, Spaniards, and the Greeks. This diet consists of consuming low amounts of dairy and meat products, and eating high amounts of olive oil, legumes, fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and unrefined foods. The Mediterranean diet has been used by Rachel Ray, and is popular due to its health benefits for the heart.
