Focus towards gut and overall health seems to be gaining grounds. People have started taking interest in foods, and drinks having higher fiber content, prebiotics, beneficial bacteria, and fermented ingredients and the trend will continue in days to come. Till date, we were aware that probiotics or live microorganisms needed to keep the gut healthy were found in yogurt/curd. But few more probiotic products like sparkling water, dairy-free beverages and oatmeal, kombucha, kvass, kimchi, and plain kefir have come out having different strains of probiotics.
In the year 2018, plant-based proteins like pea protein, legumes, nuts, and seeds were hot and it looks like they will continue to trend because by nature they keep us full and satisfied.

The latest fad going around is intermittent fasting of say 14-16 hours overnight and eat healthy in a span of eight to ten hours for three to five days every week. This has been practiced in Hindu Mythology and it looks like we are moving towards where we left off.
Plant-based diets are key to optimal health and are on the radar of diet conscious people who are cutting down on meat and its products because of reasons like them causing eco damage, being cancerous and so on. People have started looking out for innovative meat-free products who are making a shift from meat to vegan diets.
The Flexitarian Diet
Flexitarian diet as the name suggests is for both vegetarians and meat takers. It is following a middle path where both plant-based diet and meat is taken in moderation. There is no need to make a drastic shift to your diet plan but you can enjoy the benefits of high-quality proteins and some meat specific nutrients in the diet. It is claimed that the flexitarian diet offers many benefits which include promoting weight loss. I think most of you guys will opt for it.
The Keto-, Paleo- & Low-FODMAP-Friendly Foods
To manage your diet based sensitivities, you can make a choice between keto, paleo, and low FODMAP foods. People have started becoming sensitive and making a shift from numbers in terms of calories towards the benefits food offers to the body in terms of digestion, bones building, sleep.
The Mindful Eating diet
A habit rather than a diet, mindful eating promotes eating only when you feel hungry and stop before you are full. A habit to induce proper chewing methods and encourage people to enjoy the food.
Of course, whatever you opt for, be sure to talk to your personal physician or dietitian before giving a try to any diet plan!
