Ever look for a good time to switch up your diet? Or better yet, you say next week, next month, or next year? You continuously put it off with no start date in sight. Well March is here and it’s actually known as National Nutrition Month. Why not start now? Even if you have been dieting, everyday there are new discoveries in nutrition so it’s always good to keep an ear out to the latest and greatest discoveries. According to Manuel Villacorta of Fox News, their is a new hot diet.
One of the newer discoveries in nutrition is the Peruvian Superfoods diet. While superfoods doesn’t quite have a real clean cut definition, what it means to Manuel is foods that are rich in antioxidants, phytonutrients, and anti-inflammatory fats. These superfoods help fight against cardiovascular disease, cancer and diabetes and can also keep weight control, blood-sugar regulation and reduced inflammation in check. You may be already partially participating in this diet with foods like avocados and sweet potatoes. This diet goes deeper, with many of the foods originating from outside the United States, some Americans have yet to taste many foods within this diet.
There are many benefits to the Peruvian diet. With the Peruvian diet rich in Omega-3s and anti-inflammatory fats, it can lower triglycerides and blood pressure. It also contains monounsaturated fats which help reduce cholesterol and the risk of heart disease. The antioxidants and phytochemicals help reduce the risk of metabolic syndrome, cancer, diabetes, obesity, arthritis – all while increasing immune system support.
