It’s no great secret that dieting is the No:1 preferred method of losing weight among the overweight population who are keen on changing the way they look.
In response to this great need by such a large percentage of the population, the weight loss industry has brought us a plethora of diets to appeal to a wide range of people and to satisfy a diverse collection of personal needs and lifestyle choices.
Even so, a great many people are still somewhat confused at the alarmingly large array of different diets to choose from and often become petrified into inaction by the overwhelming choice before them.
It is with this problem in mind that we have put together this overview guide to the popularly available weight loss diets to enable readers to make comparisons between them and hopefully find on that resonates with their own needs so that they can go on to read our dull blown reviews of those selected diet programs. So take a look down the list of diets and see if any grab your attention.
America’s No:1 diet food delivery company probably needs no introduction as this is one you will doubtless have already heard much about on the TV and in promotional commercials for the program. While the company, which has been providing great diets since the 1970s likes to use high profile celebrity spokespeople to promote their product, the diet plans are aimed squarely at regular folks who need to lose weight but need this level of convenience and ease of use to make them start their own diets.
Main rival to Nutrisystem, JC is owned by the Swiss Nestle group and provides a wide range of diet programs with customizable meal plans that sent to their customers’ homes. Their prices are higher than Nutrisystem while the core makeup and overall quality of the meals is comparable, although they have come out on top in a number of recent quality trials.
As with Nutrisystem, you choose the diet plan most suitable for your personal circumstances and then accept the delivery terms to have your meals shipped to your home. There is good online and telephone support and counselling if you need it.
There is one of the biggest rivals to Nutrisystem in the area of diet meal delivery after Jenny Craig. They offer a similar product that is customizable and flexible with a wide choice of meals in their core menu to suit most tastes. With less advertising clout as the big two, Medifast makes up for the shortfall with a strong promotional ace in the hole with the backing of no less than 20,000 doctors who are happy to recommend this diet to their patients.
Their plans are based on eating 5-6 small meals each day, with the basic theory that eating little and often helps boost the metabolism and more calories are therefore burned than would be if you restricted yourself to eating just the standard three meals a day.
This is a diet delivery company that provides diet plans that last one week at a time. The meals are much higher quality than Nutrisystem, JC or Medifast as they are all freshly prepared by their in house chefs, chilled and shipped to customers in cooler bags to be stored in the fridge at home. There are no processed meals or freeze dried rice or pasta dishes that typify the Big Three diet company diet plans.
The diet menu is varied and comes with a very good choice for customers. One of the advantages of ordering one week at a time is that you get to change your menu frequently. This is useful if you find a particular meal that you didn’t like, you can make sure you don’t order it again. Another obvious advantage is that you can cancel if you don’t believe it is right for you or your circumstances change and it become financially uneconomical.
With diet plans similar in structure to eDiets, Bistro MD also provides high end quality meals that are chef prepared, cooked and then frozen for transport to customer homes. These need to be stored in a domestic freezer, but as they only cover up to seven days, they take up very little space.
That is a sample of the kind of diet reviews we will be providing here. We will be adding to this list of diet plan overviews on this page as we review them and publish our full reviews. If a diet you are interested in is not currently covered here as we may well be in the process of assessing and researching it for future inclusion.
