What Kind of Tests to Compare Different Diets?


#1

What kind of tests should be taken when wanting to compare the effects of different diets in 2-3 months? Vegan, keto, raw, paleo.

Would it only be blood? If so which ones would be best?

Are there other things that can be tested?


#2

Generally you test for what you are intending to achieve. What are you trying to achieve by following those diets? Test for that.


#3

fasting blood glucose AND insulin levels.

Maybe calcium score.

If there is some kind of test for inflammatory markers or cortisol levels
