A Dozen Latest Diet Plans to Choose From

There are lots of diet plans available nowadays and in fact they keep on popping up. Almost one or two new diet program plans are being launched every six months. People in their attempt to lose weight get to choose from different ways pertaining to healthy diet planning through books, online diet plans and through educating themselves about healthy diet planning.

Diet planning should incorporate education about healthy foods, nutrition and calories because once you are educated you will be able to choose the best diet plan program for you. Healthy diet planning is a rigorous task as you need dedication, patience and consistency. In the end, you will emerge with positive results if you stick to the diet plan you choose. To help you with options regarding diet plans, I collected dozen latest diet program plans for you to choose from.

In this article I will provide in brief the latest dozen list about diet plans which are available and for you to be able to choose the one that fits you best.

A Dozen Latest Diet Plans to Choose From

  1. The Biggest Loser --This is a diet and fitness program and at the same time same as that used by contestants on the NBC TV show ---- with the same title. "The pyramid of 4-3-2-1 four servings of fruits and veggies; three of lean protein; two of whole grains; and one "extra"), along with good old-fashioned exercise". -- Dr. Michael Dansinger, and dietitian-chef Cheryl Forberg, RD, trainers Bob Harper and Jillian Michaels, plus writer Dr. Maggie Greenwood-Robinson put up this program. -- The objective is to eat a diet based largely on fruits, vegetables and lean protein, add a heavy dose of physical activity and you will lose weight, lower cholesterol, decrease blood pressure, and become stronger and more energized --.
  2. The Hallelujah Diet -- This is a diet based on a heavily supplemented, low-calorie vegetable diet consisting of 85% raw organic foods and 15% cooked foods, is the core of the faith-based Hallelujah Diet Program. The Rev. George Malkmus and his wife, Rhonda, developed the diet and recipe books at their Hallelujah Acres farm to educate their followers on what they say is "God's way to optimal health." he said that “The Hallelujah Diet is our way of taking people back to the original diet, designed to be the best weight loss program on the planet Earth.""God's way to optimal health."
  3. The Jenny Craig Weight Loss Program -- This is a three-level food-mind-body plan to help people lose weight and keep it off. Those who are in the program are taught how to eat the food they want in small portions; how to increase their energy levels via simple activity. Then how to build more balance into their lives in order to maintain weight loss and healthy diet .The menu which was develop together with his or her counselor are based on an individuals weight, height, and goals."The focus is on moderation, a balanced diet, and getting enough exercise. But built into the program are occasional splurges that allow dieters to indulge themselves a little".
  4. Nutri System --This is far the most convenient way of dieting because you simply make your food selections and then get a month's worth of meals delivered to your door in microwave-ready pouches. The Nutri system diet plan started in 1972. The Nutri System Advanced was launched in 2008. The Nutri System diet is based on healthy diet plus the meals delivered are low in sodium, saturated and trans fat, it also include whole grains and a wide variety of foods.
  5. Eat More, Weigh Less Diet --This is a combination of diet and exercise that allows the body's fat-burning mechanism to work most effectively. A book by Dr. Dean Ornish popularized this method of dieting. His main point is that eating a high-fiber, low-fat vegan diet will not only help you stay healthy, or get you there, but also will help you with your objective.
  6. The Atkins Diet-- This all about low carb diet. Dr. Atkin authored a book about low carb diet and it became bestseller. The Atkins diet promises that not only will you lose weight -- and not be hungry -- with a low-carbohydrate diet, but you'll also be on the road to better heart health and memory function, as well as other wellness benefits.
  7. South Beach Diet which is similar to Atkins Diet -- discussed above -- This is based on a bestselling book in which the diet looks at how much sugar is in a carb. Low-sugar carbs -- those with a low "glycemic index" . "The only difference with the Atkins diet is that the "South Beach" dieters must say goodbye to potatoes, fruit, bread, cereal, rice, pasta, beets, carrots, and corn for the first two weeks. After that, most of these foods remain strongly discouraged."
  8. The Zone Diet is based on a menu plan, diet and was started by Dr. Barry Sears. "The Zone diet is a "metabolic state in which the body works at peak efficiency," and that state is created by eating a set ratio of carbohydrates, protein, and fat." "By retooling your metabolism with a diet that is 30% protein, 30% fat, and 40% carbohydrates, The Zone diet contends that you can expect to turn back encroaching heart disease, high blood pressure and diabetes.
  9. The Best Life Diet is based on a healthy diet, menu and lifestyle change that goes with it. The proponent is a physiologist by the name of Bob Greene and it has been used by Oprah Winfrey. A change in dieting mind-set so you can focus on improving your life and gaining control over your struggles with eating and weight.
  10. Weight Watchers Program is already around and it started in 1960. It is said that this program is based on science and that "it addresses the dieter's lifestyle as a whole, and is free of gimmicks". The Weight Watchers' web site includes several useful diet features and tools, including recipes, calorie calculators, restaurant guides, meal trackers, and more. The newer version is "The Momentum” which was launched two years ago in 2008. "This program focuses on long-term weight management and a commitment to an overall healthy lifestyle. The program is based on four basic principles: eating smarter, moving more, getting support, and developing better habits."
  11. The 3 Day Diet.This involves sole dieting, no exercise. 3 Day Diet is a very specific food plan that must be followed precisely. Portions must be eaten exactly as specified and dieters are warned not to overeat -- otherwise the promised 10 pound weight loss may not be achieved. "The version of 3 Day Diet is all over the Internet and it promised up to a 10 pound weight los in three days, although realistically it has been said that " most of that weight is likely due to fluid loss and not the more desirable fat loss"
  12. Cabbage Soup Diet -- In cabbage soup diet, there is no behavioral tips, no advice on changing bad habits -- just a strict list of what to eat each day of the week. -- The Cabbage Soup Diet plan promises a 10-pound weight loss in one week, and dieters are restricted to one week at a time on the plan --

      Maita, it seems like a lot of folks here on HP are writing about diets. I find that interesting. This is a nice hub listing the various diets, but for me, it is too many choices which is why I usually create my own. Thank you.

      Love and peace,

      Love that photo and I admit I know a few of the diets. That Atkins Diet - it just amazed me you could eat high fat foods and lose weight - but Dr. Atkins did a great job of educating us about simple carbs.

      And that cabbage diet - it was actually quite tasty.

      Thanks for a nice to read hub, Maita!

      Well this will be a good read for my daughter. She is always looking into diets. I am glad I can eat all I want, when I want, and never gain a pound. As for me, it is in the genes and I was blessed. I love food and food loves me..LOL

      Ate' Maita this is nice sweetie, but I have discovered over many many years that diets will only work if you continue them for the rest of your life. They are not something you should stop once you reach your certain goal in desired weight. It is a never ending battle.

      Another lesson I learned a long time ago is that we cannot improve on the perfect person that we already are for we are all created in God's own image and God is perfect.

      KUYA Dave, with love and HUGS!

      Holy cow! I had no idea that there are so many "popular" diets out there! I'd like to share mine to you: The Living Of-Campus Diet, which I was forced into during my college years, ha ha! I ate two meals a day: Lunch and Dinner and that was all. I had lunch on campus and then a home cooked meal at my off-campus apartment. I tried the Atkins diet and I actually lost 40 pounds or six-inches off my waist line (yeah, I was a fatty for a while). And I did all of it so I could meet and date the girl of my dreams :D Go figure, right? Talk to you soon, Maita!

    • spsos profile image

      spsos 7 years ago from Pennsylvania

      Thanks Maita, I just read your color therapy blog and ended up on this next, I loved them both! I am a lifelong dieter and I would like to add my thought: I have probably tried WAY too many of these, and the real bottom line is that you can't really look at it as a diet, but as a change in your lifestyle. Pick something that you could live with for the rest of your life, even if it isn't something you would WANT to do... you could. For the truly overweight, it cannot be a temporary choice, it has to be a form of a forever choice. You may be able to add in more choices, points, whatever, but you have to remain cognizant of fat, fiber, calories, etc. forever. It can be overwhelming, I know!

      Change in lifestye, you got it and it start from childhood,about those who are oberweight as well, youre definitely right, they dont have a choice. Sometimes also, it is not the persons fault like they have some kind of illness like hypothyroidism which affect metabolism, et al. But you are difinitely correct and Ia gree with you, thank you so much for visiting my hub, spsos, Maita

      Ooohhh, I've tried at least half of these on the list. The worst one for me was the cabbage soup diet. I didn't know that you were suppose to get on it for five days and then get off. So after, five days when I had lost only 2 pounds (water weight), I stayed on it for another 3 weeks. After the month I'd gained 5 pounds. LOL!

      Needless to say, that was one of many lessons learned about dieting. Thanks for sharing, thumbs up!

      I am currently on the Hallelujah Diet. I have only been on it for a little over a week, so the only results I have had is maybe a little weight loss and my bowels are operating much better. I actually went to the Hallelujah Diet seminar in Shelby, NC and wrote a blog on it. It's a lot of great information. Hope you have time to check it out. Thanks. So what diet are you on?

      A person can really get overwhelmed with all the diets out there. I had to condition myself to watch my sugar intake. I love sugar! I don’t believe in the sweet and low or any of the other sweetener substitutes. I have noticed that with getting some exercise equipment, and creating my playlist to exercise with. I have managed to lose 5 pounds. It has taken me a month to do this. My thyroid problem doesn’t help matters any. I will not get discouraged. I really don’t have that much more weight to lose. I need at least 15 more pounds to shed, before I can feel better about the way I look. Nice information and great writing!
