Most diets have some signature naming. Low-fat diets, high-fat diets, meat only diets, vegeterian diets and so forth. However most of these definitions are from my perspective misleading since they make no reference to the nutrition we need nor the end-goal we want to reach.

And what is the end-goal? Health! And from a health perspective, we want to have all main health processes (digestion,absorption, utilization, elimination) working effectively. Hence, the definition I am proposing of any diet we will follow on is

A healthy diet definition

A healthy diet will allow you to be metabolic flexible, get all the nutrients you need in an effortless way and bring the least burden possible on your body.

The above definition does not make any reference about any certain type of eating. So which diet should we use to start our a transformation journey. One that is supporting digestion and makes intermittent fasting easier.

Which diet to start with

In my opinion the best fitting diet as a starting point is doing a ketogenic diet, which is adhering to the definition above is by

This will get you started but follow this plan after you have started with intermittent fasting for a couple of weeks and you have been logging as already suggested all your meals. In this way you will become aware of the changes in your nutritional calories and will help you effortlessly enter the next steps of your health journey.

At his point, keto is a support mechanism for doing intermittent fasting, since fat intake increases satiety and will help you go from one meal till the next without  effort. You will improve your digestion tremendously but is not the end of the journey.

  1. This is so true! Most diet plans neglect the ultimate goal, which is to be healthy. They are also overly prescriptive and hard to follow; the general guidelines that you have provided in this post are pretty straightforward and flexible enough to be practical.

  2. I absolutely agree with Ioanna. I think that most of the times I was on a diet, I knew that my nutrition levels where very low and I felt like I was in a self punishing process! Not caring enough for my body because it was overweight!
    But the truth is that you don’t have to punish yourself to get rid of the kilos. This comes alone when your body is healthy!
