5 diet types for every body, because we’re all unique!

The Institute for Integrative Nutrition came out with this infographic highlighting the five most popular diet types today.

Most of my friends and family members are really into the Paleo diet, but this doesn’t work for us vegetarians due to the nature of the diet which focuses on grass-fed meat and fish.

You also hear about gluten-free diets for individuals who have become allergic or have sensitivities to gluten which is a protein found in wheat, barley and rye.  You can find gluten-free products available at mainstream markets as well as health food stores.   Beware of the sugar content in the gluten-free products.  Sometimes I feel like these companies are sacrificing health for sugary taste, which causes other issues int the body.   I can recommend the Tinkyada line of pasta, which I’ve found to have a great texture and taste.  If you want to check out gluten-free options, the pasta is a very good start.   I have learned that in order to reap the benefits of a gluten-free lifestyle, you must go gluten-free for at least six-months.

Macrobiotics, listed below, was very popular a few years ago and focuses on Yin and Yang food choices.  You’ll see an explanation above and if you’d like more information about this diet type, feel free to make a comment below and I can write a blog focusing on this diet type.  The foods that are highlighted include seaweed, brown rice, and fermented soy.  It’s a great option for vegetarians.

Vegan diets and Raw Food diets to me, seem extreme.   I do have friends that do one or the other, sometimes both who have had tremendous results with their health and energy.  A raw food diet consists of vegetables and fruits, not cooked over 118 degrees, which makes having a vitamix and dehydrater imperative. A great cookbook for vegan diet is “Oh She Glows Cookbook”, and can be purchased for as low as $14.99 thru Barnes and Nobles.   I have the cookbook and have made several delicious dishes that even my boyfriend Chad enjoys.  I highly recommend this cookbook if a vegan diet is something you’d like to try.

The main focus of any diet should be health and no matter what your eating style, make sure you get plenty of water, veggies, fruits, nuts, seeds, grains and beans so you’ve got the energy to get through your day.  A restrictive diet is no way to live.   I had been on a calorie restrictive diet for a year and it became an obsession.   I feel like as long as you are healthy you should choose moderation. There is more information on the Institute for Integrative Nutrition Blog on healthy lifestyle, recipes and nutritional advice.  You can check out their posts from my Lisa’s Lentils Website here.

Have a great week everyone!

Pranayama Practices

Image

Pranayama is a Sanskrit word made up of two halves, “prana” and “yama” or “ayama” which means life force.

According to the Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health, Pranayama is the art and science of yogic breathing techniques, producing  the benefits of physical well-being, lightness of heart, clarity of mind, inner and outer health and fulfillment and believe it or not, weight loss.  There is a wonderful article on prayanama practices published on the Kripalu Institute website.

The following breathing exercises can help to produce the results listed above.

Nadi Shodhana (Alternate Nostril Breathing) Gently exhale all of your air, then close your right nostril with your thumb and inhale slowly and deeply through your left nostril.  Next, close your left nostril with your ring finger and exhale slowly and gently through your right nostril.  Inhale through your right nostril and continue alternate nostril breathing for 10 rounds,  eventually increasing to 40 rounds.

Kapala Bati (Skull Shining)  Inhale and exhale quickly and lightly through both nostrils and emphasize  and then exhale completely. Emphasize the exhalation and let the inhale come as natural reflex.  You will want to practice 3 rounds of 30 exhalations building to 10
rounds of 60.  Make sure to rest and breathe naturally between rounds

Mantras

Inhale – Koham (Who am I)
Retention – Soham (I am that)
Exhale – Noham (I am not this)

7 Day Detox Program

The Pranayama Practices are included in preparation for the Strengthen, Nourish, and Evolve 7-Day Detox Program.
