We talked in the seminar about the 3 considerations of any dietary plan:
– Quality of the food
– Material content of the food (macros)
– Amount of food
Below are my favorite links to a few dietary guidelines, along with which dietary plan component(s) they address:
– Focuses on quality. Natural, unprocessed food; similar to what paleolithic (“caveman”) man would’ve eaten. Often ends up being low-er carb than the Standard American Diet (SAD).
– Focuses on quality, both of food and lifestyle factors. Food-wise, very similar to Paleo.
– Focus is on macros: high carb, moderate protein, low fat
– Dictates amount to eat
– Does not necessarily take quality into consideration
– The focus is on quality
– This is a restrictive elimination protocol for identifying food allergies
– Recommended for autoimmune diseases and people who often experience discomfort or pain after eating.
– No consideration for amount, quality, or macros. Eliminates most animal products. (Although, Done correctly, the focus should be on quality)
– No consideration for amount, quality, or macros. Eliminates all animal products. (Although, Done correctly, the focus should be on quality)
– The focus here is on macros. Keeping carbohydrates under 100-150g.
– Also a focus on macros. Very low carb (under 20g/day), moderate protein (around 80g), very high fat.
