Weight loss diet plans: Three of the best diets to help you shed the pounds – Express
The paleo diet is one of the most sustainable diet plans which can aid weight loss, while promoting good heart health.
As one of the leading diets for long-term weight loss, the paleo diet hones in on the importance of whole foods – which really have proven to be the key to shedding the pounds.
Stripping back your diet to follow a paleo meal plan can be a little trickier than the Mediterranean diet as it restricts several nutritious and hard to avoid food groups, including:
- Legumes – beans, peas, chickpeas, lentils and peanuts
- Whole grains – bread, rice, barley, wheat, oats, pasta, crackers
- Dairy – milk, cheese, yoghurt, butter
With more vegan alternatives to choose from, the paleo diet is becoming easier to follow as plant-based nutrition becomes more popular.
Some easy swaps for whole grains and dairy include spiralised vegetables, cauliflower rice, corn bread, plant-based cheese and soya/oat/almond milk.
