If you’ve got a few pounds to lose, take heart; you’re in good company. That said, what’s the best diet for you? Which diet program suits your needs and your lifestyle the best? After all, you want a program you can stick to in the long term. That program may be one that is a little more lenient with “cheat days”, or it could be a fairly intensive bodybuilding program.
To that end, here’s a selection of our top diet programs—they are popular with our audience, receive mostly positive testimonials, and seem to be consistent delivering positive results.
The Every Other Day Diet
When I saw “The Every Other Day Diet”, I thought… “Eat what you want every other day? Hey, these guys just might be on to something!”
Since the majority of conventional diets require extended periods of caloric restriction and extreme will power, it’s not surprising such diets cannot be sustained over the long haul.
But a diet based on both practicality and reality? I just had to check it out!
Tom Venuto’s “Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle”
Burn the Fat, Feed The Muscle”, an online bestseller and quite possibly the best diet and weight loss publication I’ve ever encountered, may be a diet program you may wish to consider.
It’s a little intense, but it’s very, very good. If you’re looking for results, I highly recommend it…
Fit Yummy Mummy
Written by personal trainer Holly Rigsby, “Fit Yummy Mummy” is a diet program for moms. As a mom herself, Holly knows exactly what sort of demands are made on your time each and every day.
This is a solid, non-controversial program that any woman will benefit from!
Cheat Your Way Thin
Joel Marion is a former Body for Life champion, personal trainer, established author (he’s written for Men’s Fitness, Muscle Media, Woman’s Day, SELF, Muscle & Fitness Hers, MuscleMag International, Oxygen and more) and the brains behind the new “Cheat Your Way Thin” diet program.
Those of you familiar with Hugo Rivera (Hugo is a pro level natural body builder, best selling fitness author, engineer, Labrada Supplements spokesperson and weight loss specialist) will probably not be surprised to hear that his publication “Body Re-Engineering” is exactly what it claims to be…
“The Ultimate Manual for the Ultimate Physique.”
Fat Loss 4 Idiots
The Fat Loss 4 Idiots program may not be completely foolproof, but due to its easy-to-follow online format, it is pretty straight forward. And it works.
It also presents a slightly different but entirely feasible approach to weight loss—calorie cycling.
