BEST DIETS & WEIGHT LOSS PROGRAMS
WW — Formerly Weight Watchers, this program has celeb fans like Oprah and Kate Hudson. Since he was announced as a brand ambassador on January 1, 2018, DJ Khaled has lost a whopping 43 pounds, which he showed off in February 2019. The newest iteration of the program really focuses on wellness, and encourages a mind, body, spirit approach to health. I’ve followed this program on and off for years, and it’s a flexible, easy to follow plan that really works. Participants get a daily as well as a weekly point allowance depending on their weight and activity levels. There are over 200 foods, like grilled chicken, greek yogurt, and most fruits and veggies, that are ZERO points, so there is no measuring or counting needed.
Atkins — Touted by celebs like spokesperson Rob Lowe as well as Kim Kardashian, this low-carb diet focuses on a balance of high-fiber carbs, optimal protein, and healthy fats. According to the brand, “31 million people today focus on lowering their intake of carbohydrates and reducing sugars, and Atkins offers a customizable eating approach regardless of whether someone wants to achieve optimal health, manage or lose weight.”
South Beach Diet — “South Beach is not just a diet,” Jesse James Decker told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “For me, I wanted to lose weight after baby number three, but I also want to maintain a healthy lifestyle and South Beach gives me the ability to do that. It’s high in protein, something my body absolutely needs and craves, low carb and includes good, healthy fats. So many people are skeptical about programs that don’t deliver results, but South Beach has been around for so long and is completely proven. I’m living proof that it works.”
Jenny Craig — This program has been around for over 35 years, and provides an individual approach to weight loss. There are weekly consultations with a weight loss expert (in person in select cities or on the phone nationwide) and food is delivered to your door. The consultant helps with accountably and can motivate you to overcome challenges like social gatherings filled with temptations. There are over 100 entrees, desserts and snacks available, which according to the brand are “developed by dietitians, nutritionists, and professional chefs and are free of artificial ingredients.”
