What is the BEST DIET? 🤔🍴 Comment with how you would describe your nutritional approach!
I get a lot of DMs asking for nutrition advice - everything from how to eat and diet recommendations to what my personal diet and preferences look like.
If you’ve been following me for a while, you know I’ve tried out all sorts of diets and nutritional approaches. Over the past four years, I’ve done several rounds of @whole30, implemented the keto diet, followed paleo, tried out intermittent fasting…I’ve been around the block! You can read about most of these experiences over the blog - link in my bio.
After all my experimentation…what’s my answer?
There’s no-one-size-fits-all approach to being health! Although there are some nutritional fundamentals that are pretty well-established by science, new research is always coming out. Additionally, we each have our own needs, depending on our health conditions, preferences, genetics, and environments.
Since that’s the case, what have I found that works for me?
Lately, I’ve opted for a very balanced approach called the “Pegan” diet - the name was coined by @drmarkhyman, is a mash-up of “Paleo” and “Vegan,” and it basically combines the best of both. I won’t go into too much detail here (I’ll be sharing more), but in a nutshell, the #Pegan diet is anti-inflammatory, whole food-focused, plant-based, and allows for sustainably-raised and sourced meats animal products in moderate amounts. #eatrealfood And eating this way is how I feel my happiest, healthiest self!
For the sake of my “food freedom,” I leave room to make my own choices. If I want a glass of wine or a donut, I’ll have some because I want to. If I need to grab something quick while I’m on the go, I’ll try to make the best educated decisions I can with what’s available. Because life is more than nutritional theories and is meant to be enjoyed! 🍷🍩😋 #whatsonmyplate #goodmoodfood #eattherainbow
