The summer season is a season of weight loss searches. Which is Wyoming searching the most?

If I had a nickel for every time I heard the word "diet" in the last few months (even out of my own mouth), I could have retired quite handsomely this summer. With the heat comes more skin and swimsuits. Everyone wants to look good this time of year and I don't fault them for that.

A diet is a good lifestyle change to get you on track for a long life of health.

Personal preferences aside, there have been numerous searches during these summer months for "lifestyle changes." According to, the most-searched-for diet is "intermittent fasting." This is where you monitor no only what you are eating, but also what times you are eating. Those who are intermittently fasting will extend time in between meals more than usual. The easiest way to do this is to eat an early dinner, close the kitchen, and not eat again until they have a late breakfast. Keep in mind this is not food deprivation.

Wyoming is taking a different approach to weight loss.

This is according to Women's Health Magazine. Recently they pulled data from Google searches all across the nation and were able to determine which diet is the most popular in each state. Wyoming is Googling the "Mediterranean Diet" the most.

This diet is rich in foods that are found in the Mediterranean. It's loaded with "veggies, fruits, nuts, whole grains, lean proteins, and low-fat dairy." You can even have red wine, red meat and sweets, every so often. Outside of what's on your plate, this diet encourages a healthy relationship with food. One in which you wine and dine food (pun totally intended) instead of shoveling it into your mouth in front of the television. Weight loss is not the goal of this diet as much as overall health and longevity is, but it's definitely an added bonus.

Have you tried this? Is it working for you?
