Diets low in carbohydrates, high in proteins
There are many types of low-carb and high-protein diets, which rely on drastically reducing the calories consumed from carbohydrates, and eating proteins and fats in varying amounts instead.
It is worth noting that this type of diet may not be suitable for many people, as it may damage and cause problems for some, such as high cholesterol levels, kidney problems and the formation of stones in them, and osteoporosis, so it is advisable to consult a doctor or nutritionist to see if this diet is suitable for the person.

One of the most common types of intermittent fasting is the so-called 16:8 diet, in which a person fasts for 16 hours a day and is allowed to consume calorie-free drinks, such as water, tea, and unsweetened coffee while eating during the remaining eight hours.
