Best and worst diets of 2018 — here’s how to get started

Best and worst diets of 2018 — here’s how to get startedExcerpt: And while lists are a good starting point, it’s important to take a step back and not drown in the hype surrounding New Year’s diets, says registered dietitian Shahzadi Devje.

“To me, a diet is synonym to way of life, an eating approach that’s sustainable, fluid and easy to follow,” she tells Global News. “The best diets are the ones that focus on balance and variety. They incorporate whole foods; plenty of vegetables, legumes, fruits, nuts and seeds, healthy whole grains, fish and don’t ban any foods. Total elimination of any foods can pose a risk psychologically for vulnerable groups and lead to an unhealthy relationship with food.”

And if you had to choose one from this list, Devje recommends the Mediterranean diet. “It’s easy to follow, backed by science, and has stood the test of time. Its principles can also be applied to different cultural cuisines because it doesn’t exclude or ban any food groups.”
