The Truth About 9 Popular Diet Trends


When it comes to what and how to eat, new trends seem to pop up daily. So how do you figure out which fads to follow and which ones you're better off skipping completely? One food trend that continues to gain traction is the Mediterranean Diet, consisting primarily of balanced whole foods like fruits, vegetables, beans, fish, nuts, and whole grains. I love both the delicious flavors and the many health benefits of Mediterranean-style eating. It's safe to stay that the Mediterranean Diet is one nutrition trend that's here to stay! In fact, it's not really a "diet" and is much more of a lifestyle, which is what I prefer!
