Year In Search: Top 20 Fitness & Diet Trends Of 2014

Every year, Google releases a list of the topics we've collectively searched for the most over the past 12 months. Formerly known as Zeitgeist, Year In Search is a worldwide look at the top trending searches for 2014. The review reflects what the world was searching for this year — which include a wide variety of queries within many different categories: health, pop culture, sports, entertainment, politics, and more.

But here, of course, we're most concerned with health and fitness. So we've provided you with only the lists — which measure the terms that earned the highest amount of traffic over a sustained period in 2014 — for top diets and trending workouts and exercises.

Top Diets:

  1. Paleo Diet
  2. Atkins Diet
  3. Gluten Free Diet
  4. Mediterranean Diet
  5. Dash Diet
  6. The Military Diet
  7. HCG Diet
  8. South Beach Diet
  9. Super Shred Diet
  10. The Doctor's Diet

Trending Workouts & Exercises:

  1. Insanity
  2. T25 Workout
  3. Piyo Workout
  4. 7 Minute Workout
  5. P90x
  6. Kettlebell Workout
  7. Tabata Workout
  8. Body Beast
  9. Burpee Workout
  10. 5x5 Workout

Some other interesting finds from the review? While last year was all about kale and quinoa, we had new favorites this year: chia seeds and goji berries. We're also eating out less and cooking more (searches for "recipes" trumped "restaurants"), and we're apparently a lot hungrier than we are thirsty — "i am hungry" was searched seven times more than "i am thirsty." Maybe that's why we're turning to fat-busting, muscle-searing "Insanity" workouts.
