In a survey conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, it was estimated that 17.1% of Americans followed a particular diet in 2015. Of those, only four percent continued the diet over the long term. Diets that achieve the best weight loss results are low-calorie, high-fiber, and high in fruits and vegetables. These are the most popular diets. The results will help you decide which diets are best for you.
A group of medical experts and public health professionals rated 39 diets to determine which ones are the best for weight loss. They based their scores on how effective these diets are at achieving weight loss in the long-term and short-term, as well as how easy they are to follow. The Mediterranean diet came out on top for all of these factors, and was also rated the easiest to follow.
