I’m always looking for healthier ways of living. This time I’ll show you a new diet trend: The swedish diet.

According to those who tried this new swedish diet, it lets you focus on proteins and fats and decrease the intake of carbohydrates. It’s something similar to the protein diet.

Dr. Malcolm Kendrick says that the low carb/high fat diets raise HDL cholesterol. (A.K.A. the good cholesterol).

Even though this diet raises concern about the high fat content, the research shows fat is good for you while sugar and carbs are damaging your health.

The Swedish diet divides food into three groups:

Foods allowed:

  • Veggies that grow above ground
  • Avocadoes, olives, and mushrooms
  • All meat types
  • Nuts like pumpkin seeds, hazelnuts, almonds, cashews, walnuts, and sunflower seeds.
  • All fish types and shrimps
  • Eggs
  • Dairy products (especially those with high-fat percentage)

Foods allowed (ocasionally):

  • Dark chocolate with a high cocoa content (70% cocoa or more)
  • Veggies like carrot, turnip beetroot, and celery
  • Fruits: one fruit a day and raspberries

Foods not allowed:

  • Margarine and refined oils
  • Alcohol (especially beer)
  • Ice-Cream
  • Artificial sweeteners
  • Sugar
  • Muesli
  • Store-bought juices
  • Soda drinks
  • Pasta
  • Cookies
  • Grains
  • Starch

 

As a bonus; The Swedish diet recommends drinking Green Tea as a big helper in this diet.
