The high fat, moderate protein and ultra-low carb keto diet is likely to remain the top diet trend of 2020, followed by intermittent fasting and clean eating, according to a poll of 1,259 registered dietitians conducted by marketing and PR agency Pollock Communications and Today’s Dietitian, a trade publication for registered dietitian nutritionists.

While these diet trends may not be endorsed by all RDNs, the consensus is that consumers will be “significantly reducing carbohydrates, grains and sugar in favor of vegetables, fat and meat in the coming year.”

As for trending foods, the top 10 superfood predictions cited by the dietitians for 2020 are:

  1. Fermented foods
  2. Avocados
  3. Seeds
  4. Exotic fruits
  5. Ancient grains
  6. Blueberries
  7. Nuts
  8. Non-dairy milks
  9. Beets
  10. Green tea

The dietitians’ top five health and wellness eating tips for 2020 are:

  1. Eat more servings of vegetables per day
  2. Increase fiber intake
  3. Limit highly processed foods or fast foods
  4. Limit foods with added sugars
  5. Choose non-caloric drinks such as unsweetened tea and coffee
