The concept of dieting garnered more popularity with celebrities like Kareena Kapoor, Sonam Kapoor, Sonakshi Sinha, etc talking about them and sharing their experiences.
Now we see several people, not just stars, becoming health conscious and taking care of what they put in their systems throughout the day. This brings our focus to how did they decide that? Probably with the help of diets, that was in demand at a certain point between 2010 and 2020. Some of the most popular diets that made people healthier in this decade are:
Before this decade, people didn’t actually focus on how much gluten products can affect their health. In fact, in India, there are still very limited restaurants and food stores that offer gluten-free food. People who are allergic have now started ordering their supplies online. But when this diet became a thing, many had a hard time ditching their rice and rotis. However, due to the amazing results, the diet now has many followers.
Even if you are not a fitness fanatic, you must have heard about Ketogenic or the KETO diet. Many celebrities tried it and talked about it, one among them being Sara Ali Khan. While she didn’t like it and do not support following it, she herself tried the popular KETO diet for a brief time. It is a low-calorie diet, wherein you mostly consume leafy greens and fresh vegetables that allows to lower down your carbohydrate’s intake per day.
This has to be one of the most popular and the most difficult diet plan of the decade. While many loved it and the amazing results that they got, there were also people who didn’t give intermittent fasting a thump up. As per the diet, one should fast for some fixed hours or day and should follow energy restrictions. This allowed many to drastically lose weight and improve levels of body fat and lower insulin levels.

People started investing in grinders and various kinds of gadgets to ease down the process of extracting juices from veggies and fruits. It was one of the best trends that made people healthier. In fact, there are many fitness fanatics, including celebrities who rely on a juice cleanse.
While India is one of the biggest vegetarian countries, veganism didn’t feel like a very odd concept to many. Yes, most of us do love our milk and paneer, but the benefits of veganism made many to switch to their convenient alternatives. Besides health and fitness, one of the main reasons to adopt a vegan diet was also due to the cruelty faced by animals. The noble concept did assist in making vegan diet a very popular one this decade.
Becoming healthy can be gaining weight for some or losing fat for others. But given the growing popularity of sedentary lifestyles and consuming junk foods, most countries, including India witnessed a sudden hike in obese individuals.
