Let’s face it, nobody wants to diet. But if you’re looking to kick those post-lockdown/Christmas kilos and support your overall health, you’ll want to know two things: which diets actually work, and how to make them work for you. Well, if overseas trends are anything to go by, 2022 is looking like a year of consolidation. Diets that might have seemed fad-like a few years ago have not only stuck around but gained increased legitimacy in a post-lockdown world. People want security in their lives and that includes what and how they’ve been eating. So, like last year, intermittent fasting is still popular as is plant-based diets, veganism and those more ‘Mediterranean’ in nature. There are a few twists such as diets focusing on the immune system, those centered on snacking (is the dining room table an office desk or not?), and the new, somewhat extreme Pegan diet has got people talking. It involves eating 75% plant-based foods and 25% organically grown protein such as meat and dairy.
The Pegan diet aside, it’s de je vu for ‘22 and that means one thing: heavyweights like keto are still very much in control.
This low-carb, high-fat weight loss plan is still trending decades after it first became a thing. If you’re not quite sure what the fuss is about, here’s a quick keto 101: the keto diet involves eating a low carb, high fat diet. When your body can’t source the usual energy it gets from carbs, it starts searching out ketones, a chemical your liver produces when it breaks down fats. If this happens, your body goes into a state of ketosis which means you burn fat faster.
And how do you start a keto diet? Well, it’s a bit more complicated than just cutting out bread and stuffing down steaks and there’s no one size that fits all. Our advice is to go online and read up first. You’ll soon see commonalities between all the ‘Keto Diet For Beginners’ plans or at least enough to help you ease into things. Another top tip is to look for supplementary products specifically designed to help you stay in that all-important state of ketosis. The reason we say this is because staying ketogenic is a balancing act. Too many carbs for a couple of days and you might fall out of ketosis. This is when Radiance Keto formulas can help. A big reason these formulas are so effective lies in the coconut derived medium-chain triglycerides they contain, which are good fats your keto body will love, plus additional ingredients to make your keto adventures feel more like a lifestyle than a diet.
