5 DIET TRENDS THAT’LL DOMINATE 2020
What’s common to kombucha, keto, paleo and matcha? They’re all super-fad diets that are on the way out. It’s true! 2020 is here with a whole new set of diets that’ll change the way you eat and live!
Get ready for plant-based everything, along with diets that focus on food even more ancient than anything you had in your paleo phase. Your life is going to make a definite switch for the better.
Here are the five diet trends, curated by IKEA experts, that are set to rule in 2020. Take your pick and let’s start living right!
Plant-Based ‘Flexitarian’ Diet
More and more people are making the choice to switch to plant-based diets, and the Flexitarian diet is rising in popularity every day. It also helps you make choices that are better for the planet.
In this diet, you mainly eat vegetables, fruit, nuts, seeds and whole grains. The “flexi” part means you can enjoy chicken broth in a bowl of soup if you need to – but that’s about it.
The Primal Diet
A spin-off of the once insanely popular Paleo diet, this diet focuses on completely unprocessed food.
The idea is to eat the kind of food humans ate as hunter-gatherers – plenty of vegetables, nuts, free-range eggs and wild-raised meat.
This method utilises calorie restriction to achieve weight loss. You split your day, week or month into distinct eating and fasting periods. There are several ways to go about this.
The most popular method is 16/8, which involves eating only during an 8-hour block and fasting for the remaining 16.
The MIND Diet
The Mediterranean-Intervention for Neurodegenerative Delay aims at helping reduce the risk of developing Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia.
It is mostly plant-based, with lots of fruits and vegetables, whole grains and nuts. A side-plate of fish and low-fat dairy are also allowed, although processed foods and red meat are a strict no-no.
Sustainable & Regenerative Produce
This has more to do with how food is grown rather than what you eat – but it’s a solid choice nonetheless! Through 2019, more and more people paid attention to how we can improve the state of the environment and help fight climate change.
That’s where regenerative agriculture helps, with its focus on increasing biodiversity, enriching the soil and holistic farm management. It was the buzzword of 2019 and it’ll only grow bigger in 2020.
So, which diet are you going to pick this year?
