Time flies when you’re typing furiously! (And having fun!) Can you believe it’s been 7 years since DietsInReview.com first launched? In that span of time we’ve posted over 9,000 blog entries, thousands of diet reviews, and hundreds of recipes. We’ve attended tapings of shows like The Biggest Loser, worked out with top trainers, kept an eye on trends like calorie restriction, and gotten completely hooked on foods that we can clearly remember not knowing how to pronounce. (Quinn-O-Ah? Quinn-wah? Keen-wah?)
We’ve seen and done so much in the last 7 years, but the real reason we keep going is because of you guys, our readers who inspire us to search for and share interesting stories on health and wellness each and every day. We love your commitment to healthy living and appreciate your coming to us for diet, exercise, and health advice.
As a celebration of our 7th year, we’d like to share with you our top 7 stories of all time—the headlines that grabbed your attention the day they were written and continue to be our most widely searched and read articles on the site. Here, in no particular order, 7 crowd-pleasers we’ll never tire of reading:
Our recipe for Apple-Cinnamon Oatmeal Waffles continues to delight breakfast eaters everywhere.
Our article on the proposed trans fat ban (which appears to be well on its way to becoming a reality) Dietitians Speak Out in Support of the Trans Fat Ban Proposed by the FDA features quotes from a dozen big names in nutrition.
Our article on the dramatic grand finale of The Biggest Loser season 15, Rachel’s 60 Percent Weight Loss Nothing to Celebrate; Biggest Loser Should be Ashamed, was one of the first to criticize NBC about Rachel’s appearance. We shall see if the avalanche of complaints has any effect on future seasons.
Our recipe for Barack Obama’s Chili (which, in this article, is made next to Romney’s chili) seems to get a higher approval rating than our president does at times, according to the number of people who have searched for it.
Celebrity stories never get old, judging from the continued popularity of our story The Fittest Stars of Summer 2012 Blockbusters, which highlights Anne Hathaway, Christian Bale, and more.
Along the same vein, people continue to be drawn to 7 Celebrities Celebrating Weight Loss Success this Spring, which gives a shout-out to Christina Aguilera and CeeLo Green, among other celebs.
Last but not least, healthy baking is a big hit among our readers, particularly these Healthy Oatmeal Cookie Sandwiches, which are made with carrots and bananas and feature finger-licking cream cheese frosting.
