So, you’ve decided this will be the year you lose weight. It’s a common resolution and one that many give up within a few weeks. But if you can stick to it, you’ll be grateful for the results. Not only will you lose weight from following a healthy diet, but the benefits of a balanced diet can also improve your mood, reduce stress, and make you feel good from head to toe. And if you have food sensitivities, cutting back on certain foods could reduce stomach pain, cramping, and digestive problems.

While there are certainly a lot of popular crash diets and detoxes, the best way to be healthy is through maintaining a balanced diet year-round. To help choose the best diet for you, read on for a list and summary of the top ten diet trends of 2015…

1. New Nordic Diet

Contrary to its name, the New Nordic Diet (NND) isn’t actually new, it’s just recently become recognized by more health experts who acknowledge it’s ability to aid in weight loss and improve overall health. It has rightfully earned a place as one of the diet trends you’ll see in 2015, as awareness of the health benefits from recent studies continues to spread. With a focus on whole foods, seafood, nuts, seeds, and small portions of lean wild meat (or free-range meats as an alternative), NND provides variety, flavor, and loads of nutrients.

Like many dieters, you’ve probably tried diets that focus on one type of food or cut out several food groups. Then, if you begin eating what you’ve cut out, you gain the weight back—fast. But when following New Nordic Diet, you get to eat a lot of food groups while buying local and organic foods, and being environmentally friendly. It can help with weight loss, reduce body fat, and lower cholesterol and blood pressure.
