From ligers to the Prius, one thing’s clear: Hybrids can be a beautiful thing. That’s the idea behind the pegan diet, a mix of the popularPaleo and vegan eating plans. “If followed correctly, the pegan diet can be another way to eat healthily while cutting out sugar and processed foods,” says Pam Bede, R.D., sports dietitian for Abbott’s EAS Sports Nutrition. But can it help you lose weight, too? Get all the details on what the pegan diet is and whether it’s right for you.
In basic terms, the pegan plan is a leaner version of Paleo, with an even bigger emphasis on vegetables. Like the Paleo and vegan diets, it’s centered on whole, fresh, sustainable foods, like vegetables and healthy fats—but it also includes some meat and animal products, says Brigitte Zeitlin, M.P.H., R.D., a dietitian at B Nutritious.
