Many health professionals agree that chronic, body-wide inflammation affects every aspect of health and may even contribute to or cause various illnesses, diseases and medical conditions.  In fact, studies have shown that certain chronic diseases (such as atherosclerosis, diabetes and Alzheimer's) have an inflammatory component.

To reduce inflammation in the body, natural medicine doctors often recommend eating an anti-inflammatory diet.  An anti-inflammatory diet generally consists of eating 7-9 servings of fruits and vegetables a day, eating 3-5 servings of cruciferous vegetables and alliums (garlic, onions, leeks) per week, consuming adequate amounts of fiber, consuming foods rich in Omega-3 fatty acids and other healthy fats, and avoiding processed foods and refined sugars.

This infographic entitled "Top 15 Anti-Inflammatory Foods" illustrates foods and herbs that are considered to be excellent at combating inflammation and also includes a brief explanation of the key vitamin and mineral content of each of these foods and herbs:

According to Dr. David M. Marquis, DC, DACBN:

"Inflammation controls our lives.  Have you or a loved one dealt with pain obesity, ADD/ADHD, peripheral neuropathy, diabetes, heart disease, stroke, migraines, thyroid issues, dental issues, or cancer?  If you answered yes to any of these disorders you are dealing with inflammation.  Sadly, most of us are suffering from one or more of these disorders but have no idea how to eliminate inflammation. Most doctors are utilizing pharmaceuticals in lieu of getting to the root cause."

There is no shortage of the "best", the "latest" and the "healthiest" diets around these days.

All promise the same thing:  weight loss (including the unsightly belly fat).  Many promise that you will do so in record time and with minimal effort, i.e., it's easy - they say.  Some claim that you will not need to exercise very much, if at all.  Still, others assert that you will gain a plethora of other health benefits by following the particular diet.

Nearly all are constructed or backed by a physician, nutritionist or other health and wellness expert and offer plenty of citations to studies, research and scientific data to support their claims and show why theirs is the best, the healthiest, the most effective and perfect diet.

This would be all well and good if the majority of these diets were at least foundationally similar in their basic approach.  Unfortunately, some of the most popular diets today are radically different from one another in terms of basic nutrition:  i.e., allowed and disallowed macronutrients (i.e., protein, carbohydrates and fats) and/or in terms of severely restricting or completely eliminating entire food groups.

Its no wonder overweight or obese individuals who want or need to lose weight might struggle with keeping the various diets straight and figuring out which one is best for them.

This infographic called "Decoding Diets - Which Lifestyle is for You?" illustrates the basics, goals, tips and guidelines (including the breakdown of macronutrients) for five of the currently most popular diets:

☯ Paleo aka Primal
☯ Ketogenic aka Keto
☯ Vegetarian
☯ Vegan
☯ Anti-Inflammatory
