When it comes to nutrition and movement, there are many exciting activities and foods we can begin to incorporate into our daily lives. And who’s better at revamping habits and routines than experts from the Mayo Clinic? These expert-recommended and research backed tips aren’t about discipline or depravation. They’re accessible lifestyle changes that help you feel your best.
What is the Mayo Clinic Diet? First things first: I’ll let Donald D. Hensrud, M.D., M.S., medical director for the Mayo Clinic Healthy Living Program, explain what the Mayo Clinic Diet is, exactly. “It’s not only about weight and it’s not really a diet—it’s a lifestyle change program that emphasizes healthy weight management and healthy eating,” says Hensrud. “It’s about health and beneficial lifestyle habits.”
Even if you’re already familiar with the Mayo Clinic Diet, you may not have heard that it recently underwent a pretty massive upgrade and now includes a variety of meal plans to accommodate a range of dietary patterns (including Mediterranean, vegetarian, higher protein, and keto). This variety of meal plans is just one way that the Mayo Clinic Diet recognizes fad, one-size-fits-all approaches to healthy body composition aren’t realistic or practical.
