Whether you’re just getting started on your health and fitness journey, or you’re an expert – it’s hard to keep track of all the new diets that are always popping up in the health and fitness world. What’s more, it’s often difficult to know what to trust about the new ‘miracle diet’ that everyone’s raving about.

Fear not! We’ve put together a comprehensive list of all the diets that you could possibly want to try – for you to figure out the science behind it, how (and whether) it works and if they might work for you.

The Keto Diet

One of the most popular in the health and fitness world! Although keto is not as popular as it used to be a few years ago, it still has its loyal fan following. The keto diet is all about cutting out one of the main macronutrients required by the body i.e. carbohydrates, compensating with proteins and fats.

The Paleo Diet

The Paleo diet is essentially a keto diet but packed with all the benefits that you can get from fruits and vegetables. This diet is based on the premise that modern farming products – like grains and legumes – are not suited for consumption by the human body, and this diet avoids. The main focus of the Paleo diet is on staying away from processed foods and placing an emphasis on nutritious, whole foods.

The Rainbow Diet

The Rainbow Diet revolved around color – that is, incorporating a variety of colorful fruits and vegetables into your daily meals. Each color contains different nutrients, and by eating a variety of colors, you are providing your body with a wide range of nutrients that support overall health and wellbeing.

Intermittent Fasting

Intermittent Fasting is not exactly a diet but it has grown tremendously in popularity over the past few years. Intermittent fasting is more about telling you when to eat rather than what to eat, alternating between fasting and eating windows.

The Pescatarian Diet

The Pescetarian Diet is an otherwise vegetarian diet with the exception of fish and other seafood. This diet focuses on fish and seafood as the main sources of protein while the remaining snacks and meals reflect a plant-based diet that is characteristic of the Mediterranean diet.

The Vegan Diet

The ever-popular vegan diet consists entirely of plant-derived food products – and all animal-derived foods are barred including meat, eggs, dairy products like cheese, or other animal products like honey. Yes, that includes yogurt and paneer!

The Low-carb Diet

The low-carb diet has gained massive popularity in recent years. Essentially, it’s a dietary approach that limits the intake of carbohydrates to less than 130 grams per day. This typically involves reducing foods from your diet that are high in carbohydrates, such as bread, pasta, and rice, and increasing the consumption of protein and healthy fats, such as meat, fish, nuts, and avocados.

The DASH diet

The Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH) diet is a diet specifically designed to help treat or avoid high blood pressure. This regimen goes beyond the usual low-salt approach and is characterized by foods high in potassium, calcium, and magnesium.

Read more about the DASH Diet.

The FODMAP diet

The FODMAP diet is being designed to reduce the symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). The acronym FODMAP refers to the group of sugars that can be broken down into ethanol and water, which people with IBS might have trouble digesting. It focuses on increasing intake of proteins like meat and eggs, certain cheeses like feta, brie and cheddar, and foods derived from cereal plans – such as rice, quinoa and oats and reduces intake of lactose and legumes.
