With summer peering its head right around the corner, the time has come to shed the cold weather coat that has been keeping you warm the past few months.
However, with so many diet approaches on the market these days, the vast selection can be paralyzing when beginning to work toward your weight loss goals.
Luckily, our Editors have compiled a list of the top 10 diets so far for 2016 to not only make choosing a diet that much easier, but so you can better your chances of seeing results that much sooner.
1. Weight Watchers
This diet allows you to eat whatever you like within your personal daily ‘points’ range. This approach teaches you how to incorporate any and all foods into a healthy diet, and learn the portion sizes that are right for you.
2. Plexus Slim
This diet is a stimulant-free, powdered supplement that you mix with water and consume 30 minutes prior to a meal. The antioxidants help to release fat, reduce appetite, and also provide beauty benefits.
This diet provides you with convenient pre-prepared meals. The meals are perfect for a busy on-the-go lifestyle, and provide portion control so that you can still enjoy tasty food without the worry of over-eating.
4. Ideal Protein
This diet offers a variety of products that are high in protein and low in carbohydrates and sugar. This high protein and low carb approach teaches your body to tap into excess fat stores for energy, while preserving metabolically valuable muscle mass.
5. Skinny Fiber
This diet is a pill supplement that contains fiber which expands in the stomach. This helps prevent overeating, as it makes you feel satiated sooner, and it also claims to aid in blocking fat absorption.
This diet provides over 70 pre-prepared meals to choose from that are high in protein. These meals regulate portion sizes to prevent over-eating, while still being able to enjoy your favorite foods. Kosher, low-glycemic, lactose-free and vegetarian diets are all available as well.
7. Bistro MD
This is a diet delivery system that offers an option of four different plans, with either a 5 or 7 day supply of meals delivered each week. What makes it unique is that your daily calorie consumption changes between 1,100 and 1,400 calories so that your metabolism doesn’t auto-regulate to prevent weight loss plateaus.
8. Paleo Diet
This diet follows the philosophy that our bodies operate best on the foods that our ancestors consumed before the age of agriculture. Meat, fish, vegetables, fruit, roots and nuts are eaten. Grains, legumes, dairy products, salt, refined sugar and processed oils are eliminated.
9. The 17 Day Diet
This diet consists of four different phases, each consisting of 17 days. It leans on the concept of metabolic confusion, which keeps the body’s metabolism from getting lazy. You also receive a cookbook with numerous recipes made up of all the foods you need, and none of what you don’t to learn a healthy twist to all of your favorite meals.
10. Jenny Craig
This diet offers pre-prepared meals that can be either delivered or picked up from a store. You get a consultant to help you with your weight loss goals along with your customized meal plan.
