“With the core idea of reducing your carbon footprint, Climatarianism promotes mindful food choices and increased awareness in the community. A Cimatarian Diet involves focusing on ingredient sourcing and nutritional and cultural properties of food, which leads to an increased focus on one’s well-being,” remarks Haresh Patel, well-being chef at Woods At Sasan, a retreat that gives a Sattvic meal plan.
3. Includes Locally Sourced, Healthy Foods
A Climatarian weight-reduction plan additionally consists of consuming domestically sourced, plant-based meals and portion management. “It’s a known fact that meat production emits more carbon footprints than any other protein source. The idea is to limit your meat consumption and also to encourage a 5-mile meal plan (where sourcing of raw materials is from under a 10 km radius). Also, to add to the list are no buffet spreads and to encourage one bowl meals to be more environmentally sustainable,” provides chef Vikram Khatri, director of culinary, The Westin Pune Koregaon Park.
“As a nutritionist, I believe in a holistic, inclusive approach toward food consumption patterns. A Climatarian Diet includes seasonal foods and locally grown foods native to that particular region, which are loaded with nutrients,” remarks intestine well being professional and nutritionist Avantii Deshpaande.
4. Reduces the Risk of Health Issues
The thumb rule of Climatarian Diet is to eat unadulterated and complete meals, which is good for the planet and you. “According to studies, people who eat a lot of plant-based food have a lower risk of developing inflammatory, chronic health issues including cancer, heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and stroke. The food plan includes choosing whole, unprocessed meals rather than packaged and processed options. This reduces the risk of colorectal, breast, prostate, pancreatic, and stomach cancer as well,” says Dr Ridhima Khamesra, founding father of Diet Solutions.
5. Aids Weight Management
According to research, a Climatarian Diet helps weight administration. “People on a Climatarian Diet limit sugar and highly processed food, which is good for both mind and body. A refined-sugar-free and processed food-free diet will help with weight management and will improve energy levels and reduce inflammation in the body,” concludes nutritionist Anjali Verma.
