Fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes, nuts and olive oil are the stars of the show. Fish, poultry and red wine make moderate appearances, while red meat, salt and sugar are bit players. What the research says: Where to start with this one. As for ease of adherence, U. Scientists designed this diet to contain 35 percent less meat than the average Danish diet, more whole grains and locally sourced produce, and more than 75 percent organic produce.

Whole grain cereals like oats and rye ; local fruits and berries like rose hip, lingonberries and bilberries; cruciferous and root vegetables like Brussels sprouts, broccoli, turnips, parsnips and beets; rapeseed oil, vegetable-oil-based margarine; and low-fat dairy like milk, fermented milk and cheese.

Meats include beef, pork, lamb and reindeer, while seafood includes herring, mackerel and salmon. The few desserts in the diet include baked goods made with oat bran, or jam for putting on top of cereal. Herbs include parsley, dill, mustard, horseradish and chives. A recent study published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that a healthy Nordic diet seemed to have an impact on genes in abdominal fat, turning off genes related to inflammation.

This low-calorie yet nutrition-dense diet is big on fruits and vegetables but sparse when it comes to meat, refined grains, sugar, salt and full-fat dairy.

This diet came about in a very specific historical context: Sweet potatoes, rice although not as much as mainland Japanese people ate , green leafy vegetables, green and yellow vegetables like bitter melon, soybean-based foods like tofu and soy sauce.

Okinawa residents only ate modest amounts of seafood, lean meat, fruit and tea. Modern-day Okinawans are catching up economically with their mainland cousins, which means rates of obesity, metabolic syndrome and cardiovascular disease are rising as well.

But the people who grew up eating traditionally are still alive and clinging to their culinary traditions. In fact, the island is home to one of the largest populations of centenarians in the world. These super-seniors are living active lives largely free of disease and disability, and are said to age slowly. It prioritizes rice, noodles and whole grains, as well as fruits, vegetables, legumes, seeds and nuts as the most-eaten food groups.

Fish and shellfish are optional daily choices, while eggs and poultry should be eaten weekly. Note that recommended servings of red meat are smaller and less frequent monthly than even sweets weekly! There are many different countries whose traditional ways of eating follow this model, but they all seem to have white rice as a staple. Asian countries have less incidences of obesity, cardiovascular disease and metabolic diseases like diabetes than Western countries, although that seems to be slowly changing thanks to rising economies and urbanization.

I would be remiss if I also did not mention that although I have more freedom with my food choices since I started using Nutrisystem meals, I have never been healthier. Maintaining a healthy weight has never been this easy, and this is coming from someone who has made full use of her gym membership in the past in an effort to attain healthy weight.

The hustle of planning my meals and doing complex calculations to account for my calorie consumption is now happily a thing of the past.
