The View Best Diets: Volumetrics, Ornish Spectrum & Anti-Aging Diets

The View talked with dietician Keri Glassman about the best diets on the market, including the Ornish spectrum, volumetrics, and Mediterranean anti-aging.

You have probably heard of the Weight Watchers point system, which helps people keep track of what they are eating. This creates a balanced diet, with a focus on filling foods.

“If you follow their guidelines, and you eat a varied diet, what you’ll end up doing is you’ll get a nice balance, and you’ll also learn portion control,” Keri explained.

The drawback is that you can’t use all your points on junk food that is not nutritious.

Choose legumes, nuts, whole grains, avocado, olive oil, and fruits or vegetables to create an anti-aging Mediterranean diet.

“It’s the way the Greeks used to be before they discovered diners,” Joy Behar joked.

Keri explained that this type of diet can prevent chronic health problems such as heart disease or strokes. It is full of antioxidants as well.

The View: South Beach Diet Review – Best Low Carb Diet

The best low carb diet is the South Beach Diet, according to Keri Glassman. She said that it emphasizes high fiber, healthy fat, and lean protein. If you are the type of person who is prone to overeating or overindulging, this might be a better, more structured system to help you get results.

The View: Ornish Spectrum Diet Review – Best Vegetarian Diet

Dr Dean Ornish created the Ornish spectrum, with five categories of food. Low-fat, vegetarian foods are what Ornish considered healthiest for his plan.

If you are someone who loves meat, you can find your place on the Ornish spectrum and work toward nutrition results.

The View: Volumetrics Diet Review – Best High Volume Diet

The Volumetrics Diet lets you eat big portions. The goal is to let you fill your plate, but with low calorie foods. Fruits and veggies are key. You are allowed to eat as much as you want, but mostly you should focus on high fiber foods or foods with high water volume.

“Learn to listen to your body. Stop when you’re satisfied,” Keri suggested. Which of these diets do you think would work the best for you?
