2016’s Most Googled Diets: Weird, Wild, and… Weird
Dieting is always a hot topic, and 2016 was no different. Indeed, as more people around the world struggle against the obesity epidemic, it was a hotter topic than ever before. And, as always, there were a few weird entries in last year’s most Googled list.
Some of the entries make perfect sense. Whether or not you’ve hopped on the GOLO diet trend, you know it’s popular, and Atkins 40 is well known as well. The Dukan diet is another spin on low carbing, and we’ve all heard of ketogenic diets by now.
But what about the Wild diet, the Pizza diet, and the Taco diet? Not to mention the Dissociated Diet? Military diet substitutes? And the Mono diet?
We’ll take a closer look at 2016’s strangest, most searched eating plans.
The Taco Diet
This search is most likely inspired by a popular book that came out late in 2015: The Taco Cleanse. It happens to be a vegan cookbook that promotes a “tortilla based diet.” It’s less about tacos in particular than balancing your diet and consuming plenty of whole (vegetable based) foods and doin some serious portion control when it comes to your starches.
The Pizza Diet
First, the bad news: there’s no organized, proven “Pizza Diet.” The good news is the “pizza diet” was searched so frequently was because so many people seemed to tout eating nothing but pizza and losing weight. There were several high profile stories about it, each of which came to the same conclusion. Unfortunately, that conclusion wasn’t “pizza binges equal weight loss.”
Even your beloved pizza can fit into a healthy diet, when you account for it!
The Dissociated Diet
As strange as this diet sounds, it’s actually been around since 1911. And “dissociated” doesn’t refer to your psychological state, but to the state of your plate. The “dissociated” part applies to when you should eat proteins and starches (they shouldn’t be “associated” with certain foods during digestion). Other than this gimmick, the diet focuses on lots of fruit and veg, limited meat, and limit carbohydrates—it’s a basic calorie restricted diet with an intriguing name.
