What are some upcoming dietary trends?

The Calorie Control Council, an international association representing low-calorie and reduced-fat foods and beverages, predicts the following trends:
• A focus on preventing weight gain rather than just treating excess weight. Small diet and lifestyle changes can prevent the typical one- to two-pound weight gain many adults experience yearly.
• New national dietary guidelines will emphasize consumption of fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds, omega-3 fatty-acid rich foods, low-calorie dairy products, and more physical activity. The guidelines also will stress limiting trans and saturated fats and dramatically reducing white sugar and sodium.
• Manufacturers will continue to offer “light” products. These products may have lower sugar and fat levels, but buyer beware: Some extra ingredients make them taste good, so read labels carefully to see what those ingredients are.
• Corporate wellness will be a goal for companies. Keeping workers healthy offers a huge opportunity for monetary savings.
• Calorie-conscious foods at restaurants will continue to be a burgeoning business.
