2018's Hottest Diets - Part ONE

Hottest Diets 2018 Carolyn Williams, PhD, RD

Each year there is always a crop of new diet plans that pop up in the media – all of which claim weight loss or better health and a handful of which become overwhelmingly popular by intrigued consumers.   This year did not disappoint! 

Here are some of the top searched diets this year: the Raw Foods Diet, the Ketogenic Diet, the Alkaline Diet, the Dukan Diet, and Whole30. While it’s easy for health professionals like myself to roll their eyes at new fads, I’d be lying to say that I’m not one of those interested consumers. So when Cooking Light asked me to review this year’s top diet trends, I jumped on it!
