As people in the modern world are becoming more cautious of the foods to be taken and foods to be “avoided, plenty of diets are coming into practice and the SANE diet is one of the recent diet concepts mentioned in the books. SANE is actually an acronym, which signifies Satiety, Aggressiveness, Nutrition and Efficiency.

Refers to the extent of how fast a food raises the levels of glucose in the body. Hence, the SANE diet supports having foods that have low aggressiveness, so that the glucose levels are raised slowly and maintains energy levels up to a certain extent of time, instead of sudden spikes and sudden lows.
Signifies the extent of nutritive value of a food per calorie. The more the nutritive value per calorie, the more the quality of the food increases. People who are on a SANE diet are advised to choose foods which are nutrient dense.
The efficiency of a food depends on the extent it gets converted to fat. The more efficient a food is, the more amount of fat it accumulates in our body. Thus, the SANE diet stands by foods that are inefficient.
