There’s fresh evidence that eating a healthy diet, one that includes plenty of fruits and vegetables and limits highly processed foods, can help reduce symptoms of depression.

A randomized controlled trial published in the journal PLOS ONE finds that symptoms of depression dropped significantly among a group of young adults after they followed a Mediterranean-style pattern of eating for three weeks. Participants saw their depression “score” fall from the “moderate” range down to the “normal” range, and

The Great-Hair Diet: Best Foods to Eat for Strong, Healthy Hair

As a new mom, I didn’t really have time to spare sourcing meals that represented every color of the rainbow. I barely had time to shower — I certainly wasn’t going to forage in a mushroom glen — so I decided to sign up for a meal-delivery service. One in particular, Sakara, delivers plant-based, high-protein, high-ORAC meals directly to your door. I would also make salmon as much as humanly possible for dinner, no matter how sick of it I got. And I would dump oregano on everything that wasn’t particularly antioxidant-friendly as a precautionary measure. Supermodels and other beautiful civilians take biotin supplements and report excellent hair as a result, but I was breastfeeding and cautious of pills. Instead, I would eat seeds and mushrooms I would forage from a glen called Whole Foods. I would also invest in styling lessons, for flourish. Soon my hair would resemble that

What You Can and Can’t Eat on the Keto Diet

The keto diet doesn’t seem to be going anywhere anytime soon. The high-fat, low-carb eating style has been touted as a way to lose weight, increase your energy, boost your brainpower, and feel better overall. And compared to other diets with an incredibly long list of dos and don’ts—looking at you, Whole30!—it’s a little easier to follow.

How does keto work?

There’s one prime aspect that sets keto apart from all the other eating plans out there: It helps people achieve the results they want by getting their bodies to enter a fat-burning state. This is known as ketosis, something that occurs when you eat a high amount of fats, a low amount of carbs, and a moderate amount of protein.

“Nutritional ketosis is a powerful metabolic state during which the body is burning primarily fat (ketones are derived from fats),” says keto expert Shawn Wells, RD. “It’s becoming increasingly

110 Foods You Can Eat on a Mediterranean Diet

The Mediterranean diet plan continues to be celebrated by nutritionists because it offers tons of health benefits. It’s also easy to follow and not very restrictive. After all, what’s not to like about a diet that lets you drink a little red wine?

Plant-based foods are the focus on the Mediterranean diet, which is based on the eating habits of early 1960s Greece and Southern Italy, according to the Cleveland Clinic. The diet emphasizes fruits, vegetables, legumes, fish, nuts and olive oil, and limits sweets, red meat and processed foods.

Research shows that the Mediterranean diet helps reduce “bad” cholesterol levels and the risk of cardiovascular disease, including stroke and heart attack. It also helps reduce instances of obesity.

Not sure which foods you can eat on the diet? The good news is that, unlike with other diets, the Mediterranean diet has few restrictions. It’s more of a healthy eating

Tips, Foods You Can Eat

Food trends come and go, but it seems that this whole plant-based diet thing is here to stay.

Even fast food joints are on-board; KFC just started rolling out vegan chicken nuggets and Denny’s now offers the Beyond Burger nationwide. And people are eating it up. In fact, the plant-based meat market was valued at about $12.1 billion in 2019—and is expected to more than double by 2025.

On Instagram, though, #plantbased eating looks a lot more like rainbow-colored grain bowls and avocado-based ice creams, not meatless meatball subs.

In reality, the average plant-based diet really falls somewhere between White Castle Impossible Sliders and that acai-chia-hemp-tofu-mango-kale smoothie bowl your favorite food blogger posted last week.

“A plant-based diet means eating primarily whole plant foods rich in vitamins, minerals, fiber, antioxidants, and healthy fats,” says Alexis Joseph, RD, the dietitian behind the popular blog Hummusapien.

Ideal Balanced Diet: What Should You Really Eat?

When it comes to your diet, the most current advice is perhaps the kind that begins with ‘eat less’ or ‘restrict fat’. I’ve never been convinced and I’m not alone. Most of us may feel overwhelmed with conflicting nutrition and diet opinions but I’ve learnt that deprivation is not the solution, creating a balance is. It is essential to get the right type and amount of foods to support a healthy lifestyle. What is a balanced diet? A diet that focuses on providing all the nutrients that your body needs. It comprises of macronutrients like protein, carbohydrates and fat along with micronutrients which include vitamins and minerals. Each of them has a different role to play in maintaining various body functions.

These nutrients are derived through a combination of the five major food groups – fruits and vegetables, cereals and pulses, meat and dairy products and fats and oils. The

Eat a Banana in the Morning for Breakfast

As elsewhere, people in Japan who are trying to lose weight gather together on internet forums and social networking sites to pick up diet tips and give each other support. Recently on Mixi, one of the most popular social networking sites in Japan, the diet musings of one of the members and the enthusiastic contributions of others in the community coalesced to produce a new and simple diet program that has jumped into the mainstream Japanese media and resulted in three books and many magazine articles. This diet was dubbed the Asa Banana Diet. Japan is known for kaizen, the gradual refinement and improvement of manufacturing and other processes, and the Asa Banana Diet is in effect Japan’s kaizen of a diet classic, the Banana Diet.

What to Eat When You Have Cancer

Yes, food can contribute to cancer. In fact, processed foods – those high in sugar and low in fiber and nutrients – have been linked to higher cancer risk.

But there are healthy options (that taste good, too). We’ll dive into some of the science behind different diets, including plant-based. But the basics are simple: A diet high in fruits, vegetables, and whole grains trumps processed foods.

However, keep in mind that most research only points to associations between diet and cancer, and not necessarily a cause-and-effect relationship.

How To Eat A Low Oxalate Diet

I know you are all looking for THE list. Here is one from a reliable source. We have downloaded one version on their site to a separate document so it opens with one click a useful table of oxalate foods. Get yourself acquainted with it. It will tell you much of what you need to know. A lot of it will even surprise you. You are not as restricted as you think you are or as you have been told.

A more dramatic list is the 177 high oxalate foods distilled out of the big list. Here are culprits! Not on this list? Probably not very high in oxalate so far as we know – with perhaps a few exceptions. Note that quantity is critical. For example black pepper is high in oxalate but the amounts used are small enough that total oxalate intake from it is negligible.
