Flexitarian diet - النظام الغذائي شبه النباتي المرن
A Plant-based diet known as the "Flexitarian diet " permits the occasional intake of meat, fish, and other animal products. The diet's objective is to limit the consumption of animal products while still allowing for the flexibility to consume them occasionally. The diet supports the intake of plant-based protein sources including nuts, seeds, and soy products and concentrates mostly on whole, unedited foods such fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and legumes.
As it promotes the consumption of nutrient-dense plant foods and may lower the risk of chronic diseases like heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and some types of cancer, the flexitarian diet is thought to be a healthy and sustainable way of eating. Due to the reduced consumption of animal products, the diet may also be more environmentally friendly.
It's also a great option for those who want a more flexible eating style who wish to consume largely plants but yet allow certain animal products in their diet. The flexitarian diet may be appealing to people who want to gradually shift to a plant-based diet or who find it challenging to totally cut out animal products from their diet.
To verify that the diet is suitable for you and your particular health needs, it is crucial to talk with a Clinical Nutritionist before making any significant changes to your eating habits. This is true of any diet.
