Pritikin — The Pritikin diet is a low-calorie, low-protein, high-carbohydrate eating plan that recommends a fat intake as low as 10 percent of your daily calories. Developed in the 1970s by Nathan Pritikin, the program is designed to help lower your risk of heart disease, and many of its guidelines have been advocated by the American Heart Association.
Caveman — The caveman diet has many of the same principles as the paleo diet. It’s focused primarily on the consumption of higher quantities of real, unprocessed, non-packaged food that cavemen could have eaten thousands of years ago.
Macrobiotics — A macrobiotic diet (or macrobiotics), is a dietary regimen which involves eating grains as a staple food, supplemented with other foods such as local vegetables, and avoiding the use of highly processed or refined foods and most animal products.

Organic foods are also not processed using irradiation, industrial solvents, or chemical food additives.
