As New Year's Day nears, search trends for 2010's diet craze are already emerging in our search patterns. This year’s #1 diet search, with nearly three times the volume of searches than its closest competitor, was a bit of a surprise. Using search terms as my guide, analyzing 8,323 unique diet searches, I'm predicting that 2010 will be the year of the "Jesus Diet." Below is a list of the top 10 diet searches from a four-week period in 2009:

I'll admit I was completely unaware of the Jesus Diet. Some quick research reveals that variations of this diet have been around for several decades, with the most recent version made popular by Dr. Don Gilbert's 2002 book, What Would Jesus Eat.
