Looking good never goes out of style. Most diets, however, have a popularity “expiry date”. They can be all the rage for a little while, and forgotten a year later.
We’re famous for outdoor living. This lifestyle is always going to be common for us …but how much do we focus on our diets? To find out, we looked at Google Trends data to see how often people have searched for these types of diets over the years.
These three diets – disregarding how effective they may or may not be – tended to remain popular over the last five years. The Mediterranean Diet, for example, had five peaks of interest. The Alkaline Diet also had a peak in July 2014. In all, they had consistent numbers of searches each month.
From November 2011 to August 2013, the Dukan Diet had its heyday. Since then, its popularity has dwindled. Similarly, the 5:2 Diet had a massive spike in interest in September 2014, but has since cooled off. As for Juice Cleanses, the interest never really materialised in Australia (at least when it comes to Google searches).
What started with relatively little movement in 2011 has since grown to a massive peak in 2015. While popularity is coming down again, Paleo continues to be a massive force to be reckoned with in the Australian dieting scene.
Maintaining a good diet and exercise regime is crucial to leading a healthy life; but what about safeguarding your health long term? What about dental costs or emergency treatments? For procedures like these, you’ll need a solid health insurance policy. Take a few minutes to consider your health insurance options.
