13 Best Diets To Lose Weight


For people who have long been working on losing all those extra pounds, you may have found yourself in a rut wondering which diet is the best. The fact of the matter is there is no straightforward answer when it comes to that.

Each person is unique and how a diet affects one person may be different from how it affects you. To make choosing simpler, we have narrowed down the top 13 diet plans out there.

1. Weight Watchers Diet

A lot of people swear by its effectiveness and it’s extremely easy to follow. All you have to do is log-in the foods you have consumed in a day and make sure they do not go above the prescribed calorie intake that Weight Watchers have calculated for you.

The plus side of this diet is you can eat everything in moderation and the limit given to everyone can easily fit into three satisfying meals a day.

2. Biggest Loser Diet

It’s almost similar to Weight Watchers because it doesn’t strictly prohibit you from eating anything you want but Biggest Loser comes with a book that teaches you how to eat properly. It’s also accompanied with exercise routines you have to religiously follow for six weeks.

3. Jenny Craig Diet

It claims to make you lose two pounds per week as long as you stick to the diet. Jenny Craig dieticians will tailor a customized calorie intake for you and accordingly plan a menu that will be delivered to you every day, along with an exercise plan and a one on one session with a health consultant once a week.

4. Raw Food Diet

This will most likely make you lose weight because it is a low-calorie diet. The idea is you stick to a raw meal diet which is plant-based, incorporated with fruits and grains served below 115 degrees Fahrenheit.

5. Atkins Diet

This diet plan aims to reduce your body fat by depriving your body of carbohydrates, which is your body’s main source of energy. Once your body is low on carbohydrates, it will turn to the next energy source, which is fat. This process will eventually burn unwanted fat and make you lose weight.

6. Volumetric Diet

Volumetric Diet is a cleverly structured meal plan that aims to trick your body into feeling satisfied by eating less dense food. It makes you eat less dense food but in higher volume, such as fruits and vegetables. So you take in fewer calories without feeling starved at all.

7. Slim Fast

Slim Fast products will replace your normal diet through their meticulously calculated meal bars and shakes. You will get your designated calorie count intake by only eating their products and a 500 calorie meal you can indulge in.

8. DASH Diet

This diet not only helps you reduce weight but it also fights against high blood pressure and is a perfect choice for older people. It is a bit pricier, but only because the cost of unprocessed foods is so high in the US.

9. TLC Diet

Don’t worry, this diet has nothing to do with the television network or R&B. In this case, TLC stands for therapeutic lifestyle changes. The main goal of this diet is to combat both the weight and the high cholesterol problems. Created by the National Institutes of Health’s National Cholesterol Education Program and endorsed by the American Heart Association as a heart-healthy regimen that can reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, the TLC diet is one of the best diets out there.

10. Mayo Clinic Diet

Famous Mayo clinic based this diet on their unique food pyramid with the following claim: You’ll shed 6 to 10 pounds in two weeks and continue losing 1 to 2 pounds weekly until you’ve hit your goal weight. It reshapes your eating habits and helps you to maintain your desired weight for a long time. Perhaps it is a bit more demanding, but that’s only because of the food preparation process.

11. Mediterranean Diet

Despite being called Mediterranean Diet, it can be effective for everyone, so, don’t be so hasty to exclude it. By combining diverse foods and flavors, it is a diet that’s fairly easy to stick by because it does not require people to drastically change their eating habits. A diet low in red meat, sugar, and saturated fat and high in produce and nuts seems to be working quite well for a lot of people, so, you should consider it.

12. The Flexitarian Diet

Plant-based proteins and whole grains are at the core of The Flexitarian Diet, making it a sound choice for those of us who are looking to slowly but steadily lose weight and protect against cholesterol and heart disease. The word Flexitarian is a combination of flexible and vegetarian, so you can also expect a lot of meat substitutes like tofu and beans…

13. Volumetrics Diet

Volumetrics Diet approached the problem of weight gain from a different perspective and achieved huge success, both among doctors and patients. With this diet, nothing is off limits so you can eat whatever you want. Based on vegetables, soup and foods that are rich in volume but without much calories, it gives you a sense of full stomach but without the calories that you would normally consume.
