Remember when the paleo diet smothered your news feed?
Celebrities were raving about the “caveman lifestyle”, while researchers and dietitians were saying it was just a fad…
Well, we were right.
I’m looking at why the paleo diet is all but dead, and why the ketogenic diet will replace it going forward in 2018.
Here are 3 reasons why the paleo diet is done and dusted:
1. Nobody Searches It Anymore
If something is popular, Google knows.
This is because people are searching for it.
This chart shows the popularity of the search term ‘paleo diet’ on Google between 2010 and the end of 2017.
You can see that ‘paleo diet’ peaked in 2013 and 2014, but is now less than 27% as popular as it once was.
Aside from the small spike in interest every January, that trend line will continue to decline.
You can’t argue with the hard data.
