Top 5 Diet Trends for 2015
Trending diets and fitness regimens seem to linger at the edge of every conversation at this time of year. Resolutions made just a few weeks ago begin to fall away, and we seek a fresh batch of inspirational ideas. Continue reading to learn the trending food movements of 2015.
1. Take a Pass on Beef
Due to the amount of saturated fat and high cholesterol, nutritionists are recommending limited consumption of beef. While beef contains vitamins and minerals essential for brain and muscle function, the degraded quality of beef has left the produce lacking a nutritional function.

Up until a few years ago, many people who were prescribed by doctors to pursue a gluten-free life struggled to find appetizing food while dining.

5. Reading Labels.
As more research comes forward proving the harm in unknown chemicals, many people are beginning to read labels more carefully. Questioning ingredients that are unpronounceable is the best way to ensure that you’re eating only the finest and highest quality food.
