2010’s Most Popular Diets

Top Diets of 2010At the end of December, the staff at DietsInReview.com likes to takes a look at the past year’s most popular diet and fitness trends. Some will be fads and others will be familiar and dependable, but each year this represents the interests of the public.

This list of the 25 most popular diets is compiled from the most viewed diet reviews from January to December of 2010. Essentially, the list is created by our readers: these are diets that you have been searching for and reading about, the diets you have been trying out and commenting on.

In 2010, we see our list dominated by Jillian Michaels‘ products, although Weight Watchers remains the most popular diet for the third year in a row. Acai slipped in popularity, while cookie diets proved to be a fad in 2009. Newcomers to the list include the controversial pregnancy drug hCG, the baby food diet and the Flex Belt.

Slideshow of Oprah’s Most Memorable Weight Loss Stories

For the past 25 years, Oprah Winfrey has been a part a presence in our television rooms every day. While we love many things about the queen of talk show, one of the qualities we related to so easily in her was Oprah’s honest and very tumultuous battle with her own weight. Over the years, we have cheered Oprah on as she lost 40 pounds with the help of Bob Greene and we may have even shed a tear or two as she admitted that she let the wagon fall on her as she regained weight over and over again.

Struggles with food, body image and body weight are as American as apple pie. Throughout Oprah’s 24 seasons, she has introduced us to people whose love of apple pie catapulted into a true food addiction. Oprah not only had first-hand experience of this, but she also saw her own personal story play out in front of thousands of Americans, who wrestled with similar issues and turned to food for the same emotional comfort as she did.  (more…)

100 Calorie Snack Ideas

Snacking on junk food can lead to the downfall of any healthy-eating regimen. We often eat chips straight from the bag or ice cream right from the carton, without paying attention to how much ends up in our mouths and stomachs. On the other hand, feeling hungry and deprived makes dieting much harder and less likely to succeed.

The solution? Pick a healthy snack or pay attention to quantity. Even sugary and fatty foods don’t have to break your calorie bank if you keep the portions small. From tomatoes to M&Ms, here to help is a quick guide to 100 calorie snack ideas that will satisfy that need to nibble between meals.

Food Label Glossary Decodes Package Marketing

reading food labelsIf you’ve ever felt like understanding food labels would require foreign language certification, you’re not alone. Most people are confused about the meaning behind the words they see on packages. Believe it or not, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulates the food industry’s vocabulary.

Unfortunately, marketers are in stiff competition to make their product stand out in your eyes. This food label glossary will help you translate the marketing fluff into meaningful information.
