A panel of health experts on behalf of US News & World Report assessed 40 popular diets ranking them from lowest to highest in several categories including diets for weight loss, diabetes, and heart health. The results of the research include the following top-rated diets.

This diet is a game. Let the magic flower fulfill the cherished desire to become slim and trim. Make a flower from paper and write menu for the day on each petal.
