2. Flexibility Means You Can Eat What you Want
While the emphasis of the Flexitarian diet is on eating more plants, there are no foods that must be cut out entirely. This sets it apart from other, far stricter diets, such as the Atkins diet (which ruled out carbohydrates) and the raw food diet (which banned cooked foods).
It’s a wise approach, in many ways. By allowing dieters to indulge once in a while, the Flexitarian diet helps people avoid binging on the wrong foods and falling over a cliff of food grief and guilt.
