Many people try to lose weight with the so-called Viking diet.

This is easy to do with three simple recipes.

There are many different forms of diet - such as the well-known Mediterranean diet.

One that has become increasingly popular in recent years is the Viking diet.

This diet got its name because the ingredients come mainly from Scandinavian countries.

Good for German citizens: The vast majority of products are available in stores here all year round, and some of them are even grown in Germany.

Viking diet: Atlantic fish instead of Mediterranean fish

But what does the Viking diet actually include?

Seasonal and regional products play a major role.

According to

NDR

, nutrition experts have found that Atlantic fish contain more omega-3 fatty acids than, for example, Mediterranean fish.

In addition, Nordic recipes often contain yogurt, quark, nuts, linseed and rapeseed oil.

The Scandinavian countries are also home to fiber-rich root and tuber vegetables.

Below are three healthy recipes from the Viking diet that you can easily cook at home and are simple weight loss tips.

Fish plays an important role in the Viking diet - here salmon.
