The flexitarian diet has been on the rise gaining traction in many parts of the U.S in recent years, but what is this diet all about and how can one adopt it?
Scientists believe that if you adopt a flexitarian diet you will be combating climate change, reducing pollution and promoting food sustainability.
Speaking to health expert, Vanessa Ascencao she said the flexitarian diet is a lifestyle change aimed at people who want to eat healthier.
Ascencao said a flexitarian diet limits meat and animal products and increases the intake of nutritious plant-based foods and that it is more flexible than vegetarian or vegan diets and does not focus on calories.
She also added that it also promotes eating more fruits, vegetables and legumes, while limiting processed and sugary foods.
