Nutrition Presents:

Over 150 Dietary Theories

There is endless information out there regarding health, diets, and weight loss
programs. In this document, we will introduce you to over 150 of these dietary
theories.

Please review these diets, make your own notes, and use as a guideline for your clients.

Now when your client walks into your office and says, “I’ve been following the
____________ Diet”, you will know at a glance what the diet consists of, the pros, and
the cons.

Please Note: Neither this document nor The Institute of Transformational Nutrition
recommends one single diet for every person. Instead, we encourage you to take a look
at your client’s nutritional needs to make sure they’re getting met through whatever diet
they choose.


1. Vegan Diet / Plant-Based Diet

Overview:

 A vegan diet excludes all animal products, as well as animal-derived ingredients,
including meat, fish, eggs, and dairy products

 The diet is comprised mainly of plant-based foods like vegetables, fruit, beans
and legumes, as well as grains

 Many vegans also avoid the use of all products tested on animals, and animal-
derived products such as leather, fur and wool.

 (Example: Skinny Bitch, Hungry Hottie)

Benefits:

 By focusing mainly on plant-based foods, this diet can be very high in fiber,
vitamins and minerals, and low in processed foods

 It can help to maintain a healthy weight and prevent the onset of disease,
because you are avoiding all of the saturated fat and high calorie content of
animal foods


Drawbacks:

 Vegan diets can be low in some key nutrients, like B12 and iron
 They can also be high in processed foods and carbs if you’re not careful to eat

properly balanced meals, or opt for quick/fast food choices when you’re on the go
and can’t find healthy vegan options or restaurants


2. Vegetarian Diet

 Lacto-ovo vegetarian – consumes dairy and eggs
 Ovo –vegetarian – consumes eggs only

correctly because it is very high in plant-based foods, and avoids saturated fat

 Some of the benefits can include decreased risk of certain diseases (like
cardiovascular disease and some cancers), increased longevity, weight loss and
better skin


Drawbacks:

 Like vegetarian diets, it can be low in B12 and iron without the proper
supplementation

 It can also be high in processed foods and carbohydrates if they are substituted
for protein, rather than healthier versions like grains, nuts, and seed


3. Gluten-Free Diet

Overview:
 A gluten-free diet is a diet that excludes carbohydrates that contain the protein

gluten
 Gluten is found in grains such as wheat, barley, rye and, triticale

 Aims to promote fat loss by forcing the body to break down fat as needed for
fuel in place of carbohydrates

 The state of ketosis is controlled by insulin, glucagon, and blood glucose
levels. The theory behind ketosis states that because the body does not have

and do not jump.

 Decreases blood sugar levels; helps to keep blood sugar levels stable
 May help keep you full longer; decreases hunger


Drawbacks:

 Eliminating carbohydrates decreases fiber intake as well as many important
vitamins and minerals

 May promote an acidic internal environment as many carbohydrates act as
an alkalizing agent

 Energy levels may fall as the carbohydrates (glucose) are the body’s main
source of preferred fuel; some women may experience missed periods until
carbohydrates are reinstated in the diet
