More about the study

The seven diets studied
The following seven eating plans were included in the study:low carbohydrate, low fat, low glycemic, Mediterranean, mixed, Paleo and vegetarian.

The similarities between diets

2. Natural products are high on the menu
The diets often recommend eating less meat and more vegetables, fruit and whole grain products.

3. Preferably choose lean meat or fish
Not everyone wants to live a vegetarian life. When you put meat on your plate, it is best to choose lean meat or fish.
