There are more diet trends around than you can poke a stick at!

Sooo what one is the best one? 

Celebrity trainer Justin Gelband is here to help you forage through the diet options.

The New York-based fitness fanatic who trains some of the most famous Victoria's Secret models has revealed he is a huge fan of the controversial Paleo, or "caveman" diet which is low-carb and high fat.

He also blasted so-called juice detoxes and argued they do not work as a method to shed pounds.

So what is a Paleo diet? The diet is based on eating foods thought to be available to our ancestors during the Paleolithic era, before the advent of dairy or processed grains - and has its advocates and critics.

Bachelor star Art Green is a massive fan of the Paleo diet - even being the Director of Paleo food brand Clean Paleo.
