When you listen to Destination Health, browse Healthytribe.com, read books about nutrition, or have a consult with a nutritional therapist you will most likely come across the diets: AIP, CARNIVORE, KETO, PALEO, AND NDK. Each of these diets have a specific purpose and reason for what food/drink is allowed and what should be avoided.

REMEMBER, THESE FOOD PYRAMIDS ARE TO HELP YOU GET A BASIC UNDERSTANDING OF WHAT THE DIET IS SO YOU KNOW WHAT PEOPLE ARE REFERRING TO WHEN THEY MENTION THEM. These diets are not a 'one size fits all' approach. We recommend you continue your education and speak to a healthcare professional to create a plan that best suits your bio-individual needs.

AIP

The AIP diet, which stands for Autoimmune Protocol, is designed for those with an autoimmune disease to reduce inflammation to allow their bodies the opportunity to heal. The AIP diet is focused on providing the body with the nutritional resources required for immune regulation, gut health, hormone regulation, and tissue healing while removing inflammatory foods.

AIP is an elimination diet that removes inflammatory foods, gut irritants, and immune stimulants. It is recommended to follow the diet strictly for a few weeks, then slowly reintroduce the eliminated foods and take careful note of any reaction. A reaction, such as a surge in symptoms, can indicate that they should exclude that food in the long term.

The AIP diet focuses on foods rich in vitamins and other nutrients such as lean proteins, vegetables, fruits, nuts, and seeds. A person following it will not eat anything with added sugar or other additives that can trigger an autoimmune response.

Carnivore

The Carnivore Diet is simply that, carnivorous, which means you only consume foods that are from animal sources. This includes meats, eggs, fish, shellfish, and for some, dairy. The Carnivore Diet excludes all other foods, including fruits, vegetables, legumes, grains, nuts, and seeds.

Ideally you would consume what is called Nose to Tail Carnivore, which refers to trying to use as much of an animal as possible. This means eating organs, fatty and lean cuts, tongue, cartilage-rich pieces, making bone broth etc. By doing so, you ensure that you are optimizing your nutrient intake and diversity.

Thousands of people have reported improvements in their blood sugar handling, sustained weight loss, better digestion, skin health, and more when adopting a carnivore diet. These individual cases definitely warrant the need for more research into this dietary approach in which we have very little short or long term studies on.

KETO

A ketogenic diet is a way of eating that allows the body to enter into a metabolic state of ketosis. Ketosis is when the body begins creating and using ketone bodies for energy. Ketone bodies are the result of the body metabolizing fats to be used in place of glucose for energy. This is the true premise of a ketogenic diet, and as a result, may look incredibly different from one person to another. No food is completely off limits within this context, but may be limited in the amounts consumed, especially those containing carbohydrates.

There is no emphasis on the quality of foods within the ketogenic diet, though many in the keto community do focus on better quality foods as they are in search of better health. Organic vs. conventional, grass-fed vs. grain-fed, wild caught vs. farmed seafood, does not have an impact on the body's ability to create ketones.

Even the types of carbohydrates are not truly off limits, as we have often made the argument that we could have a slice of whole wheat toast with breakfast, not eat other carbs for the day, and easily remain in ketosis.

NDK

Nutrient-Dense Keto (NDK) is a ketogenic approach to the paleo diet. NDK focuses on achieving maximum nutrient density through consuming organs, omega 3 rich seafood, and maximizing plant intake for beneficial nutrients like antioxidants, polyphenols, and more. The goal is to not only remove inflammatory foods causing problems in our body, but to also give the body the vast amount of nutrients it needs to thrive.

NDK is all about nutrient-dense food. It is always better than a supplement. If you are eating NDK and you can still identify a deficiency, then you may need some targeted supplementation. For example. most people have a very hard time getting enough Vitamin D. It's a simple at home test to verify and then requires just one supplement to fix the problem. You may only need that supplement in the winter time.

99% of the population would greatly benefit from eating just real food with zero supplements. Good targeted supplementation can make things even better, when needed.

PALEO

Paleo, also known as The Caveman Diet, is the diet of our hunter-gatherer ancestors. Basically, if a caveman ate it, you can too. It is comprised of the kinds of foods that our ancestors hunted, fished, and gathered before the invention of agriculture around 10,000 years ago.

The Paleo Diet includes meats, fish, fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds and excludes legumes, grains, dairy, refined sugar, low–calorie sweeteners, and processed foods. The main focus of Paleo is the consumption of real whole foods, and not the balance of macro nutrients, such as carbs, fats, and proteins. Our ancestors ate a wide variety of macro nutrients, varying by location, as well as time of year and what season it was.
