6 TikTok Healthy Food Trends That Are Actually Worth Trying

Amongst all of the noise, there are TikTok food trends that are approved by health professionals in providing benefits they claim to have. We have done our research, tried and tested trends and taken our diets to extremes to gather the following list of health trends you should consider trying. Be sure to always consult with your doctor before you make changes to your diet. Take a look at the following suggestions:

First things first, there has been a lot of talk about the importance of having 30 proteins within 30 minutes of waking. For those of you who have your morning coffee on the go and do not consider breakfast, you might be damaging your metabolism more than you can imagine. 

Protein is known as a high TEF food which stands for the thermic effect of food. This is essentially the level of energy released during digestion, absorption and the metabolism of nutrients. Essentially, this means that protein is one of the best foods to have in the morning as it is proven to boost your metabolism more than carbs and fats. Tiktok food trend gurus on the app are sharing the Amazon results of eating this amount of protein within 30 minutes of waking up. This can also improve mental alertness and energy for the rest of the day, as the more protein you consume in the morning, the less craving you will have for snacks and sugars.

Turmeric Shots

Amongst the endless healthy morning montage videos, turmeric shots seem to be a recurring feature. Turmeric is a spice used in many traditional dishes, and now the population of TikTok users are beginning to unravel the great benefits it has to offer. Turmeric has anti-inflammatory properties, as well as antioxidant properties,  protecting you from various diseases and health complications. This also includes your gut health, which has been an ongoing topic within the health industry. Alongside these great internal benefits, turmeric is also proven to strengthen your immune system, enhancing the body’s ability to fight off illness. Just a simple TikTok food trend, now a ritual for health lovers looking to reduce inflammation and boost their immune systems.

Powder Greens

Move over healthy smoothies, powder greens have the limelight. Seemingly a global-scale marketing campaign, powder greens are starting to become a hit amongst health lovers on the go. If you have yet to come across an ad for powder greens, they are essentially a powder form of nutrient-dense plants, all combined into a convent powder. Easily mixed with water to create a green concoction, powder greens are a nutrient-dense drink that allows you to obtain maximum nutrients within one sitting. They are a proven antioxidant, immune-supporting, nutrient-dense product that is worth the hype. Be sure to do your research into the green powder company you are buying from, as some may offer more benefits than others. 

Fasting Diet

Perhaps not a direct TikTok food trend, in fact, the complete opposite. The fasting diet has been circulating the internet for a few years now, particularly intermittent fasting. The general concept behind fasting is to restrain eating for a certain amount of time to allow your body to ‘reset’ and restore the gut microbiome. Intermittent fasting follows a schedule of not eating for a minimum of 16 hours, and then eating nutrient-rich meals within this window. For some, it has proven to support weight loss and improved insulin sensitivity. It also offers the flexibility that many look for when finding a TikTok food trend that fits into their schedule. Fasting of any kind should be done with caution, and you should always consult your doctor to make sure you are doing it with professional advice.

Anti Inflammatory Diet 

Anti-inflammatory diet

We touched on anti-inflammatory benefits briefly, but the healthy food side of TikTok is going crazy over this way of eating. All chronic illnesses stem from inflammation in the body, and people who have suffered as a result of this have looked to the anti-inflammatory diet to heal their symptoms holistically. TikTok users are sharing their insane results from sticking to this diet such as better blood sugar control, improved immune function, and of course reduced inflammation after eating. 

This diet focuses on whole foods such as healthy fats, herbs, lean proteins, whole grains, and more of the organic side of the food chain. It is essential to avoid processed foods with high sugars where possible if you wish for this diet to have the best results. You can still have the things you love as long as there are organic, low-sugar alternatives. This can be found for low-sugar desserts and even ready to drink cocktails.

Plant-Based Diet

Another TikTok food trend that has been prominent on the app is plant-based diets. Both professionals and creators are discussing the benefits and results of this diet. Rather self-explanatory, this diet excludes any animal products including dairy, and takes a holistic approach to eating, similar to the anti-inflammatory diet. This diet involves lots of fruits and veggies, nuts, healthy fats, and of course, avoids any animal-related products. This diet is not appealing to some, but the community of plant-based eaters on TikTok shares some great recipes to take inspiration from. Delicious and healthy at the same time!

Bottom Line 

Overall, healthy TikTok food trends will come and go. Whichever one you choose to follow, make sure that you have done your research and consulted with your doctor. Any type of dramatic change to your diet will disrupt your bodily systems, so be sure to follow any diet tips with caution and as much knowledge as possible. Tiktik is a great beacon of knowledge, just be sure to take everything with a pinch of salt, and try before you commit to drastic changes.
