Nordic diet lowers cholesterol and blood sugar - even if you don't lose weight
People assume that loosing weight is linked to lowering cholesterol and blood glucose levels hence they try different varieties of diets. The Nordic diet, which is based on principles that have been around for centuries, promotes a healthy way of eating by focusing on locally sourced fruits, vegetables and wild seafood but berries, veggies, fish, whole grains and rapeseed oil constitute the main ingredients of the Nordic diet concept that, for the past decade, has been recognized as extremely healthy, tasty and sustainable. The diet can prevent obesity and reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol.
So far, Nordic diet research has primarily been linked to the diet's positive health effect following weight loss. But a new analysis conducted by University of Copenhagen researchers, among others, makes it clear that a Nordic diet has positive health benefits regardless of whether one loses weight or not. The diet is adapted to the Nordic countries: Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Greenland, the Faroe Islands, and Iceland. The diet is based on ingredients that are produced locally and are thereby sustainable.
