We all know that maintaining a healthy weight is important. After all, it can lower your risk of developing various types of cancer, as well as diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke, and other health hazards (via Harvard T.H. Chan School of Health). 

When choosing a weight loss plan, keep in mind that most health experts recommend sustainable lifestyle changes over short-term diets. Some examples of beneficial changes include eating more whole foods, practicing moderation, and exercising regularly, according to Your Weight Matters. In general, be wary of any diet that is overly restrictive, cuts out entire food groups, or involves weight-loss claims that sound too good to be true.

Although slow and steady weight loss is usually recommended for longer-term success, a 2010 study in the International Journal of Behavioral Medicine found that, in the context of making appropriate lifestyle changes, the initial rate of weight loss does not significantly impact whether this weight is eventually regained. In fact, a higher initial rate can lead to greater weight loss and long-term success overall. Therefore, you may wish to focus on “large rather than small behavioral changes during the initial weeks of treatment.” To better explore weight loss plan options, U.S. News & World Report provides a list of the best diets in 2022. And below, our list of popular diets ranked worst to best, may help you decide which one is best for you.
