Atkins' New Diet Revolution by Dr. Atkins. This weight loss program encourages high protein diet and a​ trim down on​ the​ carbs. One can feast on​ vegetables and meat but should fast on​ bread and pasta. One is​ also not restricted against fat intake so it​ is​ okay to​ pour in​ the​ salad dressing and freely spread on​ the​ butter. However,​ after the​ diet,​ one may find himself lacking on​ fiber and calcium yet high in​ fat. Intake of​ grains and fruits are also limited.

Carbohydrate Addict's Diet by Drs. Heller. This diet plan advocates low carbohyrate eating. Approves on​ eating meats,​ vegetables and fruits,​ dairy and grain products. however,​ warns against taking in​ too much carb. "Reward" meal can be too high on​ fats and saturated fats.

Choose to​ Lose by Dr. Goor. Restrains fat intake. One is​ given a​ "fat" budget and he is​ given the​ liberty on​ how to​ spend it. it​ does not pressure the​ individual to​ watch his carbohydrate intake. Eating meat and poultry as​ well as​ low-fat dairy and seafoods is​ okay. a​ go signal is​ also given on​ eating vegetables,​ fruits,​ cereals,​ bread and pasta. This weight loss plan is​ fairly healthy,​ good amounts of​ fruits and vegetables as​ well as​ saturated fats. Watch triglyceride levels though; if​ high,​ trim down the​ carbohydrates and tuck in​ more of​ the​ unsaturated fats.

The DASH Diet. Advocates moderate amounts of​ fat and protein intake and high on​ carbs. Primarily designed to​ lower blood pressure,​ the​ diet plan follows the​ pyramid food guide and encourages high intake of​ whole wheat grains as​ well as​ fruits and vegetables and low-fat dairy. Some dieters think it​ advocates too much eating to​ procure significant weight loss.

Eat More,​ Weigh Less by Dr. Ornish. Primarily vegetarian fare and strictly low-fat. Gives the​ go signal on​ the​ "glow" foods but warns to​ watch it​ on​ non-fat dairy and egg whites. This diet is​ poor in​ calcium and retricts consumption of​ healthy foods like seafoods and lean poultry.

Eat Right for Your Type. Interesting because it​ is​ based on​ the​ person's blood type. recommends plenty of​ mest for people with the​ blood type O. Diet plans for some blood types are nutritionally imbalanced and too low in​ calories. And for the​ record,​ there is​ even no proof that blood type affects dietary needs.

The Pritkin Principle. Focused on​ trimming the​ calorie density in​ eating by suggesting watery foods that make one feel full. Eating vegetables,​ fruits,​ oatmeal,​ pasta,​ soups,​ salads and low-fat dairy is​ okay. Although limits protein sources to​ lean meat,​ pseafood and poultry. Although it​ is​ healthy by providing low amounts of​ saturated fats and rich amounts of​ vegetables and fruits,​ it​ is​ also low on​ calcium and limits lean protein sources.

Volumetrics. For low-density calorie eating. Recommends the​ same foodstuff as​ Pritkin but restricts fatty or​ dry foods like popcorn,​ pretzels and crackers. This plan is​ reasonably healthy given the​ high amounts of​ fruits and vegetables as​ well as​ being low in​ calorie density and saturated fats.

The Zone. Moderately low on​ the​ carbs yet moderately high on​ the​ proteins. Encourages low-fat protein foods like fish and chicken plus veggies,​ fruits and grains. it​ is​ also healthy but lacking in​ grains and calcium.

Weight Watchers. High carbohydrates,​ moderate on​ fats and proteins. a​ very healthy diet plan and very flexible too. it​ allows the​ dieter to​ plan his own meal rather than give him a​ set to​ follow.
