The Wild Diet is more liberalized for grain intake; whole grains can be eaten occasionally. Full fat dairy is also incorporated into the Wild Diet but not on a paleo diet.
Cutting out processed foods can be a healthy change in the diet. Processed foods can often be high in added sugar, sodium and void of vitamins, minerals and fiber.
Switching in more vegetables and fruits in place of processed foods like the Wild Diet suggests can be a healthy shift.
Limiting simple carbohydrate intake can help regulate blood sugar and insulin levels which can help with weight loss.
The Wild Diet suggests eating half your plate filled with vegetables which is the same recommendation from MyPlate.
Eating a diet high in a variety of vegetables can offer many health benefits because vegetables are a good source of fiber, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals.
The Wild Diet recommends eating when you are hungry and stopping when you are full (not stuffed). This can be a healthy way to approach eating.
Whatever diet style you follow, stopping when you are full is recommended. Eating when you are hungry, instead of based on how many calories you are trying to follow, can help guide your eating based on your body’s needs.
The Wild Diet recommends eating a lot of vegetables, but it also advocates eating as much meat and butter as you want.
While recent research has suggested the association between saturated fat and heart health is not as negative as once believed, replacing saturated fats with unsaturated fats still shows to be beneficial for heart health.
Therefore, mainly choosing fat sources that are higher in mono and polyunsaturated fats is recommended.
