Keto diets are all the rave these days. From success stories of amazing weight loss to avoiding other foods that cause discomfort, it’s really no wonder this diet has taken flight. Add the celebrity and influencer element, and you have the recipe for a real super diet.
Though it may seem new to you, the keto diet has actually been around since the 1920s. Interestingly enough, this way of eating initially started as a way to treat severe epilepsy in infants and children.
Is the keto diet losing popularity?
The diet regained popularity in recent years, but many have speculated that the keto diet would have just been another passing fad. The opposite, however, seems to be true. In fact, according to global data the keto diet was the most mentioned diet on social media for 2021.
What are the newest food trends?
The keto diet isn’t the only food trend that has taken off in recent years. Here are five popular food trends that have emerged in recent times:
- Plant based diets - more and more people are removing meat from their diet. Plant-based diets focus on eating whole (little to no processing) foods, and having foods as natural as possible.
- Vegan diets - The vegan diets completely eliminates meat and food from animals, including eggs, milk and cheese. This diet has seen more popularity in recent times, especially since there are more vegan options available for meat and food from animal substitutes.
- Zero-waste foods - With increased concern for how plastics and other pollutants affect the environment, some have begun to challenge themselves to make little to no waste when buying and consuming food. This leads to a more organic diet, as you have to purchase food without packaging.
