The Atkins Diet.
Officially the Atkins Nutrition Approach, the Atkins diet is promoted as a long term eating plan for weight loss which focuses on eating lean protein and low-starch vegetables, and avoiding carbohydrates like sugar and flour.
Unlike other diets, it is a high protein, high fat and low carbohydrate diet. It promises to help lose excess weight and keep it off by consuming no carbohydrates.
The Atkins Diet’s goal is to keep blood sugar levels healthy during weight loss. The diet also has the potential to get unexciting due to no variety in foodstuff as most of them are banned. Therefore, it can be difficult to follow the diet on long term basis.

The Beyond Diet
The Beyond Diet is specifically mentioned at the beginning of this post for a specific reason… it is not a diet!
It is a full-fledged diet program that gives the user a detailed meal plan, calorie counting tools, exercise videos and access to a huge community of more than half a million people!
You can find out more here:
The main theory behind this diet is replacing the bad foods in your diet with goods ones, rather than make you count calories or starve yourself. It gets our highest recommendation in the current available diet programs out there.
The 3-Hour Diet.
The 3-Hour Diet is by far the most popular diet today as it allows most foods even whilst aiming for weight loss! The diet includes a process where the dieter has to eat small portions of food every three hours. In theory, the 3-hour process, starting from 7:00 am, helps keep one’s metabolism running at a high rate which in turn helps to burn fat.
It promises to burn your stubborn belly fat without sacrificing your favorite foods. Also, exercising is optional in this diet program. The founder of this program, Jorge Cruise maintains that there is no bad food, just bad portions and that is when the diet starts making sense.
The Cabbage Soup Diet.
As the name suggests, the main food supplement of a dieter will be, inevitably (obviously), cabbage soup. The process is to follow a strict and limited diet mainly made up of cabbage soup in order to achieve quick, excess weight loss.
No dietary philosophies, no exercises, only cabbage soup – is the theory behind this diet. The recipe can be found on the main website. It guarantees weight loss and you do lose weight in this diet but rather dangerously. The diet is widely popular with youngsters, but strictly not backed by health experts.

The Caveman Diet
Bizarre is what you call diets such as the Caveman Diet. No nutritionist must have dreamed of conjuring up a diet as such that focuses on consuming foods that were consumed by the primitive man from the Paleolithic era.
It concerns itself with how and when to eat than counting calories, unlike most diets. Foods like raw vegetables, raw fruits and nuts, lean meat and plenty of water constitute this diet that bars sugars, salt, processed foods and help in cleansing the body. The diet lets you connect to your natural instinct.
The Macrobiotic Diet
The Macrobiotic Diet isn’t what it sounds like. It was codified by a French-Japanese thinker George Ohsawa in the early 20th Century. It is a primarily vegan diet that occasionally consists of fish and seafood, brown rice, legumes, beans, sea vegetables and the like.
Foods like alcohol, coffee, sugar, hot spices, processed foods, eggplant, potato, peppers, spinach, beetroot, tomatoes, avocados et cetera are barred in the Japanese cultured macrobiotic diet. Therefore, it is very much healthy and has practically no cons.
Concluding this post, as easily as we access the internet today, our options for plenty of popular diet plans are open to us within a second. Choosing the right diet is the key to a healthy, fat-free life. We wish you all the best, from the bottom of our belly!
