Looking Back at the Top Weight Loss Trends of 2013

As people are becoming more and more focused on slimming down and living healthier, diets and weight loss plans are growing increasingly popular. But separating the legitimate programs from the flimsy fads can be a challenge in a world where everyone’s got their own great new idea to burn fat.

Just which weight loss trends gained the most buzz last year? The easiest way to pinpoint them is to look at the most Googled terms of the year, which were presented in a recent article at the Huffington post.

According to the site’s research, the Paleo Diet was the No. 1 most searched term over the year. This should come as no surprise to folks who have heard about the eating regimen, which involves sticking exclusively to food options that would have been available to our ancient ancestors.

The theory goes like this: the human body was designed to subsist on a certain type of diet — including chiefly veggies, fruits, grains, nuts and meat that can be found in the wild. The agricultural revolution introduced an entirely new wave of processed food types, which some believe have contributed to the deterioating health and increasing obesity of the average person.

The Paleo Diet is extremely popular among those who participate in CrossFit fitness programs.

Following Paleo on the list is the Juice Cleanse Diet, which gains points for simplicity but loses points for questionable effectiveness. Third is the Mediterranean Diet, a great program that is heavy on leafy greens and provides more freedom than some restrictive regimens out there.

Rounding out the Top 5 are the Master Cleanse Diet — another one with dubious claims — and the Ketogenic Diet, which focuses heavily on protein and healthy fat while excluding sugars and refined carbs.

Which diet trends shall rule the day in 2014? Only time will tell, but hopefully we’ll see more movement in the direction of scientifically supported, nutrient rich plans, and away from fasts and cleanses that are increasingly beginning to look like ineffective shortcuts
