We’re always on board for health trends that help people get healthy in a safe way, but as our pals at Blisstree point out, there were a lot of goofy health trends in 2013. Check out their picks below.

In the year 2013, there was a general trend toward health consciousness. Everyone seems to care more about eating local and trying out new ways to exercise. We’re going on “fun runs” and questioning what we put in our bodies. This progression towards a healthier lifestyle is definitely positive, but people are a bunch of goofballs and our efforts to be healthier sometimes turn out to be a little wacky. This year some of our health and wellness schemes got pretty goofy and caught on big time. When I say goofy, it can mean either absurd and dangerous or absurd and silly.

These are the goofiest health trends of 2013:

Prancercise- This is the fun kind of goofy and not the dangerous kind. Prancercise‘s Joanna Rohrback seems like a helluva a woman, prancing is fun and we should be free to exercise in a light-hearted way if that’s what we want to do. Not everyone has to be lifting in the gym. Do yourself a favor and check out the positive “About” page and the entire Prancercise website.

Juicing- This trend started a few years ago, but really escalated this year. It’s totally goofy because while juice is delicious, solid foods are kind of critical. Socially acceptable starvation is still starvation.
