The U.S. and Europe has a long history of dieting. In the 1920s and 1930s, there was a diet called the all-grape diet. It was popular among wealthy women in the U.S. and France. The plan called for eating only grapes for several months to lose weight and reap anti-aging benefits.
Sound familiar? It’s the early form of a raw food diet plan that limits food to only raw foods.
Robert Atkins popularized the Atkins Diet. It called for limiting the number of carbohydrates you eat. His theory was that by limiting this type of sugar, your body uses stored body fat for energy instead of metabolizing sugar for energy.
Again, sound familiar? This is the precursor to the modern day South Beach diet and more recently, the low carb diet craze.

The modern version of low fat diet? The Mediterranean diet. It emphasizes healthy fats like omega-3 fatty acid from fish, nuts, legumes and fruits and vegetables.
Paleo Diet, gluten-free diet, low carb diet and the dairy-free diet are all forms of eating that involve limiting a certain food group and processed foods.

Every new diet plan that is introduced has its roots somewhere in the diet history world.
