Discover some diets maybe you haven't heard about yet from these experts.
"The new trends in weight loss include the Paleo Diet and Going Gluten Free. A common trend is shifting more towards whole real foods and decreasing processed food."
"The Paleo Diet is a huge trend in weight loss right now. The diet refers to eating like our Paleolithic hunter/gather ancestors. Individuals on the Paleo Diet avoid grains, dairy, processed foods, and sugar and focus on high quality protein and plenty of vegetables. Another big trend in weight loss right now is meal delivery services. With so many local companies offering organic, fresh, real food options, eating healthy is easier than ever!"
