This simple fact is the one thing that most diets, dieticians, and nutritionists overlook. It is very beneficial to count calories and to control portions, but sometimes reducing food to a simple formula takes the pleasure out of it.
This is where The flexitarian diet comes in. You can already hear part of the word flexible in it!
Originally called semivegetarian, the flexitarian diet is a very customizable diet. There are no strict meal plans that need to be followed, but of course we have provided you with some to help you out. Nor is there a tiny list of things that you can eat.
