In today’s episode, we’ll talk about the #1 nutrition trend of 2020
Back in 2014, I decided to explore and test Keto on myself. No one knew keto back then…there were no books and certainly no keto influencers. I made that decision at the peak of the paleo craze.
As a nutrition expert, I was at the forefront of new research and trend in the industry. I knew that paleo wasn’t going to last and that the next things were coming.
So, I wrote a book on keto, created a protocol for keto, supervised clients on keto protocol and interviewed the top keto leaders. Always seeking the “thing” that would make it all come together for me and my clients. As many of you know, I never found that “keto thing”… However, I found emotional eating, binge eating & body-shaming instead (another story for another day😂).
What’s next? So now that Keto is starting to decline… because it is…many of my friends who have written books on Keto have been declined further contracts because the publishers are seeing the decline.
It’s worth asking that question: What’s next? Because there will be another trend. Here’s my prediction and one of many others: The No-Diet Approach aka Intuitive Eating.
How are we going to help the keto dieters that have failed (95% of them do fail) deal with the side effect of such severe restrictions such as food obsession, carb cravings, binging…and the even lower self-esteem from yet another diet failure?
That’s why I strongly believe that Intuitive Eating is the next health trend… Indeed, it’s currently being called out as the #1 Nutrition trend but the next few years it will become the #1 health trend.
In short, we have no choice but to make the shift as a society.
