    definitive list of all the diets on offer Even if we could link to a list it would be out of date a week later if not a day as so many fad diets come and go Not the best diets In answering what is the best diet we can say what it isn t It isn t bingeing on one low calorie food at the expense of all others cabbage soup anyone It isn t cutting food intake to such an extent that you lose weight but feel listless and hungry forcing you to quit the diet then see a return of all the weight and sometimes more For something to be the best diet or even just a good diet it has to do more than simply get initial weight off The evidence is overwhelming that after an initial weight loss phase most diets prove unsuccessful they are simply not designed to be stuck to for life Healthy Diets Of course the best diet also has to be healthy Some diets have benefits beyond just weight loss for example research shows evidence that the Atkins diet can lead to improvement in risk factors for heart disease hypertension and diabetes among others Other diets are neutral health wise they don t improve it but they don t harm it either while others are simply not to be followed as they may compromise your health Anyone can write a diet and post it online some wacky scheme to binge at weekends but eat like a mouse on weekdays But the fact that something is new and flavour of the month doesn t mean it s legitimate the best diets all have serious scientific research backing their credentials Answering what s the best diet is also subjective It depends why you
