 Every time there is a photograph of a celebrity showing off his or her toned and fit body, hundreds of thousands of fans search eagerly for their diet and workout plan so that they can follow suit.

To become as fit as them, one has to follow a fitness code. Verun Rastogi, CEO of Mufubu and Nutritionist Namami Agarwal jot down the latest A-to-Z fitness regime.

* Matcha made: Not only has this green powder (which is packed with caffeine and antioxidants) popped up in cafes across the country, but bakeries, grocery stores, and even beauty products have also gone mad for matcha.

* Ketogenic diet: A low carb, high-fat diet, the ketogenic diet transforms your body into a fat-burning machine. You body runs entirely on fat, your insulin levels become low and fat burns drastically. The main focus of this diet is to get all the calories from the consumption of healthy fats rather than proteins or carbohydrates.

* Paleo diet: Paleolithic living as a dietary model was introduced by gastroenterologist, Dr Walter L Voegtlin. Also known as the Stone Age or caveman diet, paleo diet includes consuming only fresh and organic fruits or veggies or meat. In the Paleo diet, there is no use of processed and canned food. Foods that have preservatives or chemicals are completely avoided in this diet.

* Atkins diet: This diet completely eliminates carbohydrates and focuses on proteins and fats for the daily source of energy.

* Dukan Diet: The Dukan diet is designed by the French nutritionist and dietician, Pierre Dukan. This is a protein-based commercial fad diet similar to the ketogenic diet, as both focus on the consumption of fats and proteins but omits carbohydrates.

* Zone diet: The Zone diet is a low- glycemic index diet introduced by biochemist Barry Sears. This diet includes foods that do not spike your sugar levels. The right proportion of fat, carbhohydrates and protein helps you lose weight and decreases the risks of heart diseases.
