This week on the college chew we will be doing something a little bit different, by spending each day discussing a unique diet. These diets include those which we have found to be the most trendy and in demand. However, because we value health over all, our staff will not be discussing any diets which have been found to have compromising effects on health. Therefore, we hope that our readers will feel comfortable giving any of these diets a try, and enjoy chewing on with us!
Our staff chose these diets for more than just their trend setting ways. Each of these nutritional options are also sustainable in their own ways, and may help our readers to broaden their horizons. For example, the mediterranean diet has been an applied diet as a part of mediterranean culture for centuries and emphasizes heart health. Going back even farther, the paleo diet is based on the nutritional traditions of early humans, who ate simply. In contrast, the DASH diet has been put together fairly recently and is promoted as a gateway to weight loss and is designed to help with blood pressure.
Recently in the trendy dietary world, there has been a focus on a return to a simpler way of nutrition. In addition, recent epidemics of obesity in the United States have caused a focus on weight loss when it comes to dietary trends. Finally, studies which focus on good fats and less sugar as well as an emphasis on natural and organic eating have also shaped trend diets, including the ones featured this week.
Check back everyday this week for a new and trendy dietary take from our staff!
