For everyone who’s still looking for the perfect diet, we have a fresh new trend. The flexitarian diet is ideal for people that are occasionally vegetarian. It is mostly based on plant-derived products, but it also includes meat. This diet advice that you include animal-derived products in moderation. In other words, it is the perfect transition type of eating for people who are not sure they can go completely vegan right away.

What You Should Eat

The flexitarian diet recommends that you mostly base your meals on fruits, vegetables, legumes, and whole grains. You should try and avoid all types of processed foods, and opt for fresh produce.

What You Should Avoid

You should be getting the majority of protein through plant-based products. Try to reduce the intake of meat to a minimum. The whole point is to eat animal-derived foods, but only occasionally, and set your own limit. This way it will be much easier for you to get used to eating what your body needs the most from a natural source. Also, if you’ve been trying to become a vegetarian, this is the perfect way to start. Sugar and sweets are the two other things you should definitely avoid.
