Mediterranean Diet

The Mediterranean Diet is one that is based on a diet often eaten by the French and Italians. It involves eating lots of fresh fruits and vegetables, fish, nuts, and whole grains.

On average, people who follow this type of diet are successful at losing around 8 pounds in six months. It does also require exercise and calorie cutting.

Weight Watchers

You may have heard of weight watchers, which is not only a diet but also includes a support group of people in your area. Each week you can get weighed in and meet others who are also following the Weight Watchers diet. On this diet, you can eat any types of food that you like, but each food is worth a certain amount of points. Each day, you are allotted a certain amount of points that is based on your current weight and what goal you have in mind. It has been said that many people who follow this diet are able to keep the weight off for the long term.

Whole 30

The Whole 30 diet is one that seems to be very popular in 2018. It can not only help you to lose weight, but also helps with those having digestive issues. It involves eating mostly fresh vegetables and lean proteins for 30 days. Those following this diet will need to cut out sugar, nuts, dairy and sadly, alcohol. Another benefit of this diet is once the 30 days is up, you can slowly start eating some of the other restricted foods to figure out which are troublesome to your body.

Ketogenic Diet

The Ketogenic diet is one in which a person eats foods that are high in fat, low in carbs and moderate in proteins. Not only does it help you to lose weight, but it can also help your mood, anxiety, and other mental health conditions. On it, you can eat lots of natural fatty foods, lots of greens and foods high in protein. There are also many keto friendly protein powders that can help to supplement your diet if you find it hard to find the right foods.Being precise with your macros is very important for keto, so it's recommended to use a keto macronutrient calculator.


The DASH Diet is known for its aim at helping to lower high blood pressure. In fact, DASH is an acronym for “Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension”. It requires you to get rid of most sodium, fat, and saturated fat to help your heart stay healthier. Since getting rid of sodium can help to reduce bloating and inflammation in the gut, it also helps people to lose weight. The key is to eat lots of fresh fruits and vegetables and make sure to exercise often.

Flexitarian Diet

Those following the flexitarian diet tend to weight about 15% less than people who regularly eat meat. While this might seem like a new diet, it has actually been around for over 10 years. Those who consider themselves to be flexitarians follow a diet of mostly no meat. The first part of the word, “flex” means they eat meat once in a while when they feel like it, but not on a regular basis.

1,200 Calorie Diet

The 1,200 Calorie Diet may sound like it is pretty easy to understand what you need to do while on it. It involves significantly reducing the amount of daily calorie intake. It is important if following this diet to make sure you are eating the right foods that can get you through the day. This means you should be eating complex carbs, protein, and healthy fats. Any junk will likely cause a spike in blood sugar, which can make your day miserable.

Paleo Diet

Nuts, seeds, oils, and seafood are all excellent choices for those following this diet. In addition to helping someone lose weight, the diet can also be beneficial for lowering blood pressure and bad cholesterol.
