New year, new diet?

When we look back on a year of diet trends -- new and used -- 2016 has been confusing to say the least.

We've ridden the wave of Paleo controversies, gluten sensitivities and 5:2 diets -- and have reached the shoreline feeling slightly battered.

Amid all the rumble, what have we been googling this year?

According to data picked up from Google Trends, among vegan, paleo, sugar-free, gluten-free and 5:2 diets, Aussies are most interested in veganism in 2016.

'Gluten-free' took out second place, followed by 'paleo', with 'sugar-free' dieting surprisingly coming in last place.

  • Matcha mylkbar
